I fire off a few rockets and watch... and wait... and nothing happens.

The berserker/blast master combo was great on the first playthrough, but im not getting any new high level guns on the second playthrough, so it seems underpowered. Might have to respec and go for "Titan" to be an uber-tank. We'll see...
I've been going Brick/Berserker for the first playthrough, and it's working out great. Brawler spec with some points in increased HP/shield. One of those Tough Guy shields gives a bonus 40% HP too. Use your guns when it suits you, then when you're running low on health, go berserk, punch everything, and afterwards you're good as new.

Not really "broken", as that's likely how the class was meant to be played, but it's endlessly entertaining

Entertaining indeed! Although I pretty much only use it when I need health badly, otherwise I have a high-level "Pancea" shield (the best in the game IMO) that has Very quick health regen. Using that + my Purple-rare "Titan" classmod means I have nearly 2k health and it fills back up in a flash.

Switching topics again: I think I may have found the best SMG I've ever seen. No, it's not an x4 one, but its well over 100DMG, 90-something ACC and over 16 rate! When I kill one guy my "Blast master' effect goes off, doubling its firing rate and damage absolute massacre. Oh, and i finally found an awsome shotgun: Atlas Hunter's shotgun w/ Explosive damage

That x4 SMG is just unreal. I kill anything with that thing. It's accuracy sucks but if you wait for the to get close just about nothing can withstand a full clip except the bosses....

Will add you next time I'm in-game, being that a hunter is my main char, I should have lots of cool stuff to give out

Ill post a pic of my crazy SMG tonight. Nothing can beat it when my "Blaster" class mod kicks after killing one enemy, the damage and ROF both double

Finished Zombie Island of Dr Ned. Wow what a shooting gallery of a game lol. I did enjoy it. The environment is wonderfully Halloweenish and a nice change from what you usually see in Borderlands. This DLC wasn't much of a challenge and gave me about 5 hours of gameplay. I think I went in as a level 43 Siren and finished at level 48. My only complaint is that I finished all the missions, including one that powers on a different weapon vending machine, but the vending machine only had level 48 weapons in it. So I kept on going and leveled up to 48 and when I went back to the machine... it was back to not working. So I missed out on anything it might have had.

Downloading General Knoxx now. Still on the fence about the Moxxi DLC. I'll see how I feel about it after I finish Knoxx.

I'm going to wait until Steam has Moxxi on sale for a pretty steep discount, because as it is I don't think it's worth it at all. Knoxx is really good though, and there is a huge amount of new content. I've put a good 10 hours into it, and I'm still not entirely done (the 'secret' boss).
