quote MLongfellowDeedsYep. Beat him in story mode with my friend because I was worried about the melee thing, but it turned out to not be a problem. I've beaten him solo about 6 or 8 times. Only died once I think, because I made a blunder early on in his first form (which is arguably the one easiest to bugger up and die on). I'm farming him mainly becuase he has a chance of dropping all 3 of the uber versions of the magic grenades.Yeah, Rubi Love Thumper to start, then I switched to my Hide of Terra shield and couldn't get any melee damage on him. Is it a respawnable boss? I'll have to go there again and see if the same happens for me.
quote MLongfellowDeedsStrange. I had no problems. Were you using the Rubi like me? I had a Love Thumper, which might have made a difference, but I do believe I've killed him even with my shields active, so it doesn't seem likely...The Demonic Sorcerer gave me problems...melee damage would not register for me, so I had to resort to guns.

Slag him, kunai him, and run behind and melee him in deception, followed by just hitting him over and over again. Of course, healing is important. An Evisceration Rubi or Law+Order would be essential.
Farmed the stage a bunch of times, and got just one of the leveled up Magic grenade mods, the Firestorm or whatever one. Still hoping to get the Purple Magic Missile (plus the Lightning Storm).
BTW: Turns out you can sacrifice items at that altar every 10 seconds or so. Haven't gotten anything good, even from the badasses that spawn from it sometimes, but apparently you can get legendary and pearl weapons from it.
quote Shadow of DeathMelee Zer0 destroys EVERYTHING in this DLC!Melee Zer0 (With Kunai) + Evisceration Rubi + Love Thumper = Awesome
I can't speak for later enemies, but I'm ripping my way through most. Heck, I can kill even Treants (plus Regular skeletons and the stumpey things) with just Kunai if the right elements proc I can kill tougher enemies faster than I could in co-op using The Bee with my friend (who doesn't use The Bee). I killed that big Orc boss in The Forest within ten seconds. Took me using The Bee plus my friend quite a bit longer to kill him. Though I do need Slag to be most effective, but if the Roid damage is active, I can fully heal with every Melee attack with the Rubi. I can also do pretty good damage against the (slagged) armored foes, which is more than I expected TBH
Long Live the Evisceration Rubi!
