Borderlands 2 legendary drops, easiest and best drops?

So which bosses or mini bosses do you guys hunt for legendary drops? I've been trying to farm hunter hellquist for "The Bee" legendary shield, but with NO LUCK....I seriously farmed him like over 50+ with my relic on....good news is that he is easy to work on....doesn't have much HP and you can quit restart in the same area, rinse & repeat very effectively

Who else is worth farming that doesn't require too much work?

BNK3R, Warrior, Scorch (takes a little bit of work, though), Terra, etc.

I farm the slot machines at Moxxi's. Better pay out than the warrior, lol.

Do the slot machines give all kinds of oranges?

Thats the same thing I was thinking as well??? I don't recall seeing any oranges from slots....I played quite a bit, but they get super expensive when you get to level 50....so I stopped playing them cuz the payout sucks

Oh yeah I farmed moxxi for her Good Touches...they are nice purple fire guns...but I want legendary damage

slots give you legendary items when you get 3 borderland symbols.

That is not what I was asking, hehehe

My question is: can the slots drop in theory "boss specific" loot like the bee or hellfire, and etc?

The slot machine method is a waste of time to get Orange guns this site here only had a 0.04% chance of getting a Orange gun after about 22,000+ tries

http://orcz.com/Borderlands_2:_Moxxi...ies_Statistics

the best way to get them is Boss enemies.

Once I got one back at level 2 with the one that took claptraps eye

I also agree that Moxxi's Good Touch, and Bad touch weapons are great as well.

Well the slot machines only pay out weapons, so No, you cannot get the Bee or any other shield, grenade, class mod, or artifact.

But Yes, you do get boss specific oranges. Ive pulled a 'Maggie' a 'Striker' and a 'Deliverance'

Good luck on the bee shield, I got one. Take down warrior in about 30 seconds (only takes that long because he hides under the lava). Take out the 50 boss in about 10, lol.

The Bee seems to be a very rare drop. After a weekend of farming Hellquist only one Bee dropped for me and it was a bit weak.

Hellquist is easy to kill/farm, though. The Warrior is as well - I seem to have more trouble with Loot Midgets than the Warrior.

I got lucky. Got a Bee shield on about my 5th kill of Hellquist. That was about 3 days ago, so unless the most recent patch did something (they didn't say or imply it did) then he should still drop it.

My best technique was to toss a slag nade into the room before he knew I was around, slag him, and then use my 200k rocket launcher to get him. I can usually have him dead before the loaders arrive with that. Definitely had him if I used Thoughtlock, as he would wander outside looking for somebody to shoot, ignoring me. Only real issue I had was the time he rushed me instead of falling back, causing my RL to kill me as well

Good luck!

I recommend taking a look at: Borderlands 2: Easiest Way to Get Rare, Epic, & Legendary Items -- particularly the Terramorphous the Invincible part.

He's suppose to drop rare loot like it's going out of style. Plus he looks fun to beat with friends.
