I cannot get a level 50 Bee shield to drop. I have tried for about 4 nights now. I have gotten a level 48 and 3 level 49s. The difference in damage given using a level 49 and 50 Bee Shield is huge! I am at level 50 and have completed the game twice (so I guess I am playing playthrough 2.5). I have not completed all of the quests on the second playthrough, but that shouldn't matter, right? Any advice or wisdom would be appreciated!!
It's just random drops and considering the low drop rate of legendary's it could take a while to get the one you want, I got a lvl 50 the second time he dropped it and I only just finished TVHM so finishing your side quest has nothing to do with it, I had the same problem with the baby maker, you just gotta keep at it or trade/dupe.
