Best Boss To Farm For Legends?

Seriously, this is getting really annoying. I can kill any boss within like three seconds due to the Bee and the Conference Call, but no matter how many times I kill the Warrior, Saturn, Terra or anything else, they only drop like three purples that are never better than what I already have.

I'm level 50, in TVH mode, is there anything I'm doing wrong? I can go equip my Vault Hunter Relic but I doubt it would do much...

What's the best place to farm for Legendary equips, or just good equips in general? The Warrior? Terra?

I've killed these bosses more times than I can count now, and they've almost always dropped crap.

The Warrior
BNK-3R
Terramorphous

Those are the top 3 to fight but every mini-boss also drops legandaries. Also the Vault Hunter Relic seems to be bugged by some reports and doesn't actually do anything.

My buddy and I have killed a bunch of bosses as well and they only drop maybe 1 or 2 purples for us. Haven't even seen an orange drop yet so congrats on the bee and conference call.

If you wouldn't mind duping them for me hit me up lol

Otherwise I feel ya

Totally forgot about the BNK-3R, does a specific enemy drop the Legendary Mods or is it everything? Because that's really the only thing I'm looking for atm.

Terramorphous drops the Slayer mods and the Varkid drops the Legendary _____ Class Mod.

You can get a legendary item from any boss (You can get a Bee Shield from BNK-3R) it is just bosses have a much higher chance of dropping weapons specific to them.


Here is the loot list.

So do the legendary class mods only drop from the one boss? And I've see a video of people fighting him. But how do you get him to spawn?

I finally got my first legendary drop off tumba in the wild life preserve that shotgun. I'm on my secnond playthrough so it's only i think a level 45 but still pretty decent. I like when you reload it locks on to a target and shoots in mid air.

Slayer - Terramorphous
Legendary - Verminous

However you can get legendaries anywhere from anyone. You just get a higher chance getting it from specific bosses.

Nice list thanks! I'm about 3/4ths of the way through my 1st playthrough with all 4 characters, and still haven't found a single orange. This should help!

I have fought Vermiverous a bunch of times and he's always dropped shitty stuff... I didn't even know about the legendary class mods until a few days ago, what do they do? anything special, or are they just as shitty as the slayer mods....

I have a question about this list, hope it's ok asking in this thread, ok I have went thru this list and went back and fought some of these guys over & over, they have not yet once dropped a legendary weapon, so my question is: Do I have a chance of finding these weapons on my 1st play thru or better on my 2nd? Does it matter what level I am? (I'm a 26 Gunzerker) Do these bosses level ever go up? because so far the have stayed the same. Thanks

In playthrough 2 they'll be a higher level and after you finish playthrough 2 you'll be on what is referred to as playthrough 2.5 where every person and quest is scaled up to your level 50

Loot chance is random. It could be your first kill or you may never get it. Bosses will go up to level 52 once you have beaten TVHM.

The legendary class mods add 5 points to all tier one skills in each tree. But you have to have at least one point in the skill for you to get those points. And then some other perks.

I know for the commando it reduces cooldown by 30% or so i think and add 5 points to tier one skills. So it's pretty decent IMO. I would love the legendary class my for my commando. Would be pretty epic.

I play the Siren and from what I've seen, the Legendary Class Mod is much, much, better than the Terra Class Mod. I believe it gives you a damage bonus (SMG?) whereas Terra only gives you a bonus to fire elemental effects.

I'm trying to farm BNK-3R, and on just about every other run, my xbox freezes when he's at 1-3% health :/ Apparently it's already been posted on the gearbox forums, so hopefully they can fix it soon...

Edit: Grrrrrr... Ever since I beat TVHM, out of my seven BNK-3R runs, the game froze four times :/ Doesn't help that every attempt takes like ten minutes This should be obvious at this point, but I'm gunna go ahead and farm the other bosses until he's fixed...

Everytime I fight BNK-3R all my guns do regular damage except when I shoot him with any jakobs revolver and tap the trigger as fast as I can he instantly dies.... He's lvl 52, I'm not using bee shield or anything it's weird and I can't explain it....

I have been farming The Warrior for exp the past couple days and I have yet to find an Orange weapon. Do you have to be on TVHM to get Legendary weapons?

I noticed on that loot list you have unknown next to the fire bee grenade. i think its a random vending item because I bought it on the deal of the day a while back when i was like level 15. the item was level 9, but was so damn powerful i didnt replace it until well into my 20's and truthfully still didnt even need to replace it. the zone i bought it in was the frost valley whatever where you meet lilith.

damn thing maxed out my "grenade kills with AoE grenades" challenge in like a couple days. wish i could get it again but higher level. oh well, makes for a great twink item for my low chars!

I have found the following bosses to have the best loot, but generally any boss in game is going to have good loot.

The Warrior
Terramorphous
BNK3R

I just finished TVHM yesterday and am ready to start farming for legendaries, but my weapons are still pretty weak. Is every legendary weapon in Bahroo3's loot list posted above worth using? I won't be able to survive consistently against BNK3R or the Warrior solo with my current weapons, so I'm thinking about farming the bosses that have lower health/less risk and gradually building up legendaries that will in turn help me farm for the typical bee/conference call combo.
