I know Gearbox is planning on releasing a fourth DLC pack (or so it says on wikipeida). But honestly, all the idea's that i've seen floating around with the Eridian history seem too big for a DLC. Honestly, a BL 2 should encompass the Pandorian winter considering it just ended and BL 1 is based in the summer. I don't know...winter and eridians, should be a fun bouncing off point...what do you think?IbanezRokr 16:37, April 12, 2010 (UTC)

I'm honestly skeptical about the DLC4 ever coming out. We'll see. But as to BL2, I thik the idea of a Pandoran winter would be pretty cool. It would make it easier for them to include the much requested "frost" element that everyone is bugging about. I envision it working much like Liliths daze skill where enemies are slowed for a couple seconds, plus some additional damage if they try to move while "frosty". But yeah, I'd go for a winter setting. Would be cool to see what kind of bizarre vehicles they come up with, maybe something like s Sno-Cat with boost would be cool. All those watery areas could become icy, making driving a wheeled vehicle difficult.Gamedoctor21 16:53, April 12, 2010 (UTC)

i think a new class that is more of mage. skilltrees would be 1:elemental(i know the siren has it). 2:magic 3: Striker (which will boost the melee to be more usefull. action skill would be that it shoot out beams of elements from hands.

I think one of the vehicles could be a out runner but without wheels but tank chains (like the one in the screenshot on the vehicles-page) Karamos 18:06, April 12, 2010 (UTC)

And the lancer has to be 1 of the lamest 4 person car ideas ever, I guess it was kinda to late to dodge it when they released it but still, I think its garbage, I would much rather drive around in 1 of the outrunners that AI uses near Lucky's Hole, something like 4 people in the 1 car, but the passengers could hang off the side and use their own weaponry, or a place for some1 to go and use there own rocket, something like that would be sick TreeJs 18:09, April 12, 2010 (UTC)

TreeJs, I had an idea that was somewhat similar to that. It would a four seat runner, there would be two seats in front and two in back, facing out behind the vehicle. The runner wouldnt have a turret like most, so instead the driver could control a swivel machinegun mounted up-front and the three passengers could use their weapons to shot at enemies. There could also be several achiements for this, like while playing as Mordicai (or a character like him, if they make new characters) you have to shipe 5 enemies in this runner while in motion, or as the Birck character, you have to blow up three runners with a rocket launcher while in motion. It also wouldnt have the same boost ability as the outrunner, but it would have heavier armor instead. Lone-Wanderer 19:07, April 12, 2010 (UTC)

I smell prequel set 200 years in the past when people where first moving onto pandora, the first real discovery of the vault since the eridians, the companys starting out and trying to be the main company of the planet wich is still being fought over, and the seting up of the guardian angel. so this would mean different companies that didn't make it for long , new creatures possibly beacuse eather season change (wich might take a long time on pandora) or dammage to the enviroment by these compnies, new areas beacues of setling (these could be places that succeded or fail hey if were lucky we might be able to go to sanctuary when it was being started), fight the destroyer the have to set up the gaurdian angel so it can find those who can stop the destroyer oh and make a copy if the satelite gets dammaged. ps sorry for any spelling mistakes Aren01 01:25, June 23, 2010 (UTC)

Thats an awesome idea. Id also like to see more civilization and less desert wastelands. You could be like an assasin hired by the native pandorians to take out the cooperation. Interplanatary ninja assasin 16:27, June 23, 2010 (UTC)

first, isn't the eridian prometory the winter eridian place? Secondly, the only thing borderlands really needs is AI controlled allies that fought with you. The driving is one of the only things that can still remain mod free on consoles and letting players use weapons, especially modded rocketlaunchers and stock guns would be so unfair. i do wish they added a no shields buy new weapons nazi zombies mode. might be fun. lastly, more randomization for the wastelands similar to the random events, npcs as Fallout3 ShadyCake 17:00, June 23, 2010 (UTC)

Honestly, I found the Eridian Promentary to be just ok, not real great. The aliens aren't all that fun to fight and I would much rather see another DLC like Dr. Ned. Dr. Ned's Island was very orginal and had a pretty quirky and entertaining story to it. The only problem was the lack of good drops, I didn't find jackcrap on that Island. If DLC4 was another crazy story except with new awesome drops, then that'd be perfect in my book. GruntMastaFlash 18:02, June 23, 2010 (UTC)

As far as importing BL1 chars into BL2 goes, I hope they realese a final DLC for BL1 that free and just gives you a lvl 70 cap and an additional playthrough or something like that, and then make the BL2 import require lvl 70 - then they can just scale the numbers up (provided the systems can handle that) and you could have your 1000+ damage guns and your sweet 5 quality class mods right off the bat. I mean, they'd have to expand the skill tree, maybe add an alternate action skill or boost the skill point cap past 5, and obviously the guns would need to have the potential to get way more powerful, but it would be really sweet, and if they do include a weapons mod bench like KOTOR where we can take our guns apart and reassemble them in different combinations, it would really reduce the allure of save modding - why risk your file when you can mod up the guns you want in-game? So in short - I think BL2 lvl 1 should = BL1 lvl 70, and a weapon bench would be amazing. Oh, and I agree - we need a 4 man tank, but I kinda want to hang off the side of an outrider like a bandit.. Motorcycle/hovercycle would be nice as an action skill "summon" kinda like Roland's Scorpio.. WhackyGordon 19:23, June 23, 2010 (UTC)
