Best way to farm purples? Going for Decked out

Trying to get the achievement, and am currently only needing a relic, commando mod, and grenade mod.

What would be the best way to grind for some purples? I'm level 45 atm, so not able to fight Terra yet for gear, if he's a good option.

Other then that, what are some good places? I've heard King Mong is good for Purple mods.

By the end of my first playthrough I had never received a purple relic, I had to borrow one.

Question...to get this achievement, do you have all of them on you at the same time? Or just have them one at a time, during the game?

Yeah, I haven't seen one yet either. I know I accidently sold some purple grenade mods, and am now kicking myself for doing so.

If anyone is willing to let me hold a grenade, commando class, and a relic that would be awesome. Then I don't have to worry about farming it.

I have all the other stuff if someone is wanting to take turns getting the achievement

Thanks for that, I was actually coming on to close the thread down. I found what I needed by farming the final boss

hi mate tried sending you a message on Xbox but for some reason it wouldn't let me, so ive sent a friend request in the hope that'll work.

just wondering if you would be willing to help me out if you've got a complete purple set up and wouldn't mind letting me wear it for the achievement.

Tannis should give you a purple relic when you go around telling people you're going out to fight the Warrior before the final battle. That's how I got mine.

you'll have MUCH higher chances for purple relics on TVHM, i did not get a single one my first playthrough, and i used some of my Gold Keys and got no purple relics, only blues.

i dont have this achievement myself so im only using guess work here.

Relics and Class mods apear to be the rarest things to get purples...

If you have two players each with a gold key you can get unlimited purples. That's how I got my purple rare mods

get the purple relic from the sheriff of lynchwood. Im only missing a shield now which i remember selling way back during my low level days.

I think the relic is the hardest purple item to get.

I Need a Purple (or higher) Gunzerker Class Mod, I havent had much trouble with getting purples or pinks for any other inventory slot, just the Class Mod,

If some one can help me that would be awesome. im level 33 and have just finished The Warrior and just finished up my 2 last side quests.

You Will Die! (Seriously) and the fight arena at Ore Chasm (haha that name makes me laugh every time, good ol Moxxxi)

Just do the gold chest glitch!
1.Host invites friend with gold key
2.Host stands to the right of the chest so that is says open
3.Friends uses gold key to open chest
4.Chest is stuck in an infinite loop
5.Loot!

Lord of the Rings Easter Egg (3 purple loot every time)

To unlock this special event, you’ll first need to travel to the starting area; Claptraps’ Place.
Inside Claptrap’s Place, pick up an item hidden in the fireplace.
Next, travel to a special enemy called Geary on the volcano, in the Eridium Blight. You’ll need to travel up the volcano, using the ramps to jump over the lava flow to reach Geary.
You cannot fast-travel or die on your way to Geary. You’ll need to follow a specific path to reach him. You can use vehicles.
To reach Geary with the special item, start from the Fireplace and go to each area in this order; Claptrap’s Place, Southern Shelf, Three Horns – Divide, Three Horns – Valley, The Dust, and the Eridium Blight.
When you find Geary partially up the volcano, don’t attack him. Geary is a runty psycho bandit that will die in one hit, but will also drop rarity head items. If you want, Geary can be farmed for rarity heads, as he’ll always respawn in the area even if you don’t follow this method.
Don’t kill Geary! Let him hit you once. After he attacks, he’ll run off the cliff and dive into the lava.
Only let him hit you once. Once he jumps into the lava, look to the skies.
Three Rakk will fly over your locations and deliver three loot chests. One of these chests will always drop purple loot.
This is a reference to the Lord of the Rings series of books by J.R. Tolkien, in which a hero takes a secret ring from a fireplace and travels to a volcano to dispose of it — until it’s stolen by a psychopath who drops into the lava anyway. The heroes are then rescued by three birds from the erupting volcano.
Goodluck!

Without trying to sound like a dick, my advice would be keep playing the game...The longer you play, and the higher level you become, rare stuff seems to drop much more often. I'm sure you could consult the trading thread if you are about done with the game and still haven't found what you need (I doubt you'll need to though).

I Can't find anything in or on the fireplace at Claptraps place

EDIT:
Nevermind,it can only be done in True Vault Hunter Mode..then Geary's Unbreakable Gear appears in the fireplace

The sheriff's badge was the only purple relic I found but it took me a while to get a purple grenade mod too but on true vault hunter mode found many. The Warior usually drops one every few kills.
