Question about Creature Dome DLC requirements. Does the person who has the DLC need to also be the one who still has the quest active & be the host? Or can I, without the DLC & host, walk through to the DLC area and the continue to respawn there after saving/quitting?

I'm curious to know if I can just simply have someone with the DLC be willing to get me to this point so that I can farm alone and let them get back to whatever they wish to do, unless they also need him. Just wondering if after I quit & save there, kicking out that other person, if I will still be able to use it or will they always have to join me before I hit Continue?

Jimmy Jenkins Solution

I think i've finally nailed the strategy to quickly get him, especially if you're having trouble and getting tired of farming Opportunity, Hero's Pass, etc.

What I did was start the campaign on my mules profile and bring in my Level 50, because I already have passed the Wildlife Preserve in my TVHM Playthrough (You could just do this in your TVHM playthrough as well without another profile). I ran him through the story until Chapter 11 which unlocks the Wildlife Preserve and it's missions. What you're going to want to do is talk to Tannis before setting off because she is the key to do this, she will give you a quest which will ask you to get 4 Skag ECHO's in Wildlife. Now that you've done that you're going to want to fight through everything until you get to those 4 cardboard boxes before Bloodwing's cage. Open up the big chest, then one by one(not quickly) open the boxes(Does not matter which profile opens the boxes). Doing this I always got 4 Loot Midgets/Loaders everytime. So if that does happen to you just Save&Quit and reload and repeat.This only took me two times, and the time I did get him I got him twice. Playing through the story and running through this twice only took me 2hrs tops, it's really not that long. I hoped this help and Good Luck~

Side Note: When doing your runs, never ever pick up the ECHO in the box, this will indefinitely ruin your chance of getting him. That is the only thing keeping him in that area.

EDIT: This isn't fullproof, some people have told me that this hasn't worked for them but most have told me that it does, take it as you will. Also, if for some reason the Annex is open to you during this mission I advise using that point for the reload as it will be easier to get back to the boxes. All you have to do is enter the Annex then go back into the Preserve once and everytime you Save&Quit and Reload you'll always be just outside the Annex.

Yeah the shotgun kills can be time consuming, I just helped my friends when they needed help with Slaughterhouses. That helped a bunch with speeding up the process.

Yeah. That was my last challenge as well. I suggest loading up your first playthrough and then head on over to the Bloodshot Stronghold/Ramparts and/or Southpaw Steam & Power. You can get at least 100 kills from going to those areas. Then save and quit and do it all over again. They're all one hit kill, so it'll be very easy, just time consuming.

Well, if you're still on the first playthough then wait until you're a higher level I suppose.

Nothing comes out of the boxes every time I do this. Have the quest active, didnt pick up the echo in the box. waste of time.

Is the Wildlife Preserve Mission and Tannis' Skag Mission open? also, when you go to the four boxes is there a blue beam coming out of the second to last box?

I ran a second account trhrough the whole game till that point. Im on his game, I have both quests active and the diary is still in the box. I open the loot chest first and then the boxes one by one. Ive done it 20 times now and havent seen a single thing. No loot midgets loaders or anything.

Have you tried switching accounts maybe to open the boxes, though it shouldn't matter but you could always try.

Secret To Jimmy Jenkins

Incase this was not yet reported or people are still trying to grind for J.Jenkins, the best time to get him/farm for him is actually during the Main Story Questline in Wildlife Reservation Preserve. Any other time is not only wasteful, but a lot more random. If you already passed it, my best advice is wait till you're on your second playthrough or join a friends game who is on this mission. After defeating a badass stalker followed by a badass loader, you will be in the holding pens. You should notice the pens are closed with the orange glass-like walls. In this area, before bloodwing's pen, you will notice a garage like cutout with a bunch of cardboard boxes, a treasure chest, a few lockers, and possibly some slag canisters for the side mission. The 4 cardboard boxes on the ground almost 100% always spawn some sort of mini loot creature *BUT ONLY DURING THE MAIN QUEST*. So if you open all 4 and no J.Jenkins, go no further, save and quit, and rerun again and again until you get him. To make it easier, those of you that have the Wildlife Reserve Annex(Beast Circle of Slaughter) pre-order, run from start and enter Annex. Then leave and continue farming for J. Jenkins. The game counts this doorway as a spawn point so every time you save and quit, it will spawn you outside the annex, which is about halfway for this run so it saves an incredible amount of time. After spending days grinding on my assassin in both opportunity and wildlife reserve both resulting in nothing, i started on a gunzerker and got J.Jenkins first run in wildlife. I remember when running my assassin through here, during the quest i got about 3 various loot midgets. To test this theory i restarted again on a commando, and actually used the above method for about 5 runs until jimmy jenkins spawned. Each run i got 3-4 loot midgets from only the 4 cardboard boxes, so in total i went through about 15-20 loot midgets until jenkins spawned. Much easier than the old way of grinding.
