Borderlands – Siren

I needed something more interesting than random web surfing during my lunch break, and decided on Borderlands.

Since it’s been a while since I played, I went with a new start, picking the Siren.  The early quests were easy.. no wonder, as I’ve seen them a few times now, but the gun choices are causing me a lot less stress this time round.. something’s sinking in at last! 😉

I also don’t think I really appreciated the style of the graphics this much last time..

I’m finding this a rather satisfying use of my lunch break.. even if it means I progress fairly slowly.  I levelled up enough to get Lilith’s special ability, the Phasewalk, which gives invisibility, increased running speed, and damages nearby enemies both going in and coming out of phase.

Using Phasewalk to finish off an enemy also netted me an achievement 😉

Heading towards Nine-Toes’ den, I heard some screeching and couldn’t quite make out where it was coming from at first.. then I looked up!  I’d forgotten about the Rakks!

After killing these off, and watching the loot rain from the sky, it was time to face Nine-Toes..

He managed to kill me off on my first attempt, but I was more careful the second time, dealing with the dogs while staying out of Nine-Toes’ line of sight.  I then had a smug moment when I finished him off by phasewalking and going up behind him for the killing blow!
