I'm at the part in the story line where
Sanctuary is gone.
I'm playing with someone so I don't want to level my character past them, but I'd like to kill some time and gamble for some better weapons. How can I do this when I can't get to Sanctuary?
Edit: Here's what I did -
Overall, it doesn't take much time to get Sanctuary back if you just rush through. If you're not trying to keep pace with someone else, just push forward on the story-line and it will be back soon enough. Otherwise, and this is what I did first, you can hike to Overlook and gamble there. It's not as nice as Sanctuary though, and you wind up killing stuff along the way anyway.
