Danish, if you scroll up and look at the revolver I showed you it’s a ‘Pearl’ still classified as orange so it’s among the best you can get. I doubt it’s another shade rather just the best oranges you can find.

That one I posted above fires explosion, corrosive, fire, and shock and takes down all baddies 48-51 with ease a have not seen a better weapon than that one yet.
That's not a Pearl weapon. The name doesn't have anything to do with it unfortunately.

Pearl weapons will appear above all of the orange weapons in your arsenal (because it sorts them by color/rarity).

I've seen people say that Pearl weapons will have a glow around them when dropped or on the ground. I want to find one and test that theory.

They also say that there are only three types of Pearl weapons. One is a repeater, one is a sniper, and I forget what the other one is. I did a good 40 minutes of googling and reading threads.

-------------------------------

Know what I just realized would be cool? They should have patches that add even more weapons (like Bioshock added new plasmids). That would be so sweet.

Ok, I don't know if this is well known knowledge, but I know how the elemental artifact upgrades work.

When you use an artifact, you get a level for that element based on your current level. This is done in the form of an limit based on that level; however, you can improve that element later on once you have reached a higher level.

Some people believe you can only get those from missions, but there is a faster way. The elemental artifacts are dropped by creatures with Badass status. The percentage chance of them dropping one is based on their level.

Simple trick. get a party together and go hunting. Find Scags, Sidernauts, and those slug creatures. Wait for the Elemental Badasses to show up. Make sure the person who is going for the upgrade to their current elemental level issues the killing blow as it will determine what class it will be for. I just did this with my two roommates. 4 Elemental artifacts in 2 battles totally about 12 minutes of play. I am on Play through 1 with Lvl 3 on all elements and they now have level 3 on at least 2 apiece. Using this knowledge you can engineer upgrades to your class ability's elemental effect.

I've enjoyed this game for what it is. However, I thought by now I would have found some special weapons scattered about the landscape. However for me (using Roland) I've found the best weapons, shields and mods from the vending machines. With some of the better weapons completing certain missions.

My classmod gives the following:

+56% SMG damage
+4 Quicksilver
+3 Girl Power
+3 High Velocity
+32 SMG ammo regeneration

::EDIT:: In case you're wondering why I only have one point in radiance... it's because when you're phasing and getting close to enemies they start taking shield damage and it destroys any surrounding barrels. With this much phase regen I'm always regening HP if I'm low and after the death of two enemies phasing is back completely.

Here is my build: http://downloads.2kgames.com/borderlands/website/skilltree/lilith/#21500000055050555050500

I built like this cause I realize how overpowered elemental is it is very ridiculous. If you have the right weapons and know how to use your skills correctly, you can be great no matter the build.
The only reason I didn't do what you did was because max movement speed is actually the speed lilith phases, my weapons are already 80% proc chance, and my classmod gives me ammo regeneration. When you phase it uses a classmod element, and then I step near them and it's a bit of shock damage, when I unphase it's more classmod damage, and then a couple rounds with the gun and they're dead, phase is back too.

I haven't gotten that far yet but noticed this just recently. This is well made game IMO.
