Are there any items that increase your item drop rate...

outside of the vault hunter relic you get?

Impossible to say for sure unless someone actually found one. But my guess is no.

I'm 2/3rd of the way through a second playthrough and have not seen this stat on any other item ever.

It's always seemed weird to me that Borderlands never had a magic find modifier (except for the pre-order relic, obviously). I guess rares just aren't rare enough for it to matter as much.

I like that you cant just increase your rarity drop rate. If they just made it into another modifier it would start devaluing guns. Thats one problem I have with Torchlight 2. Blues are so common that I just sell everything green and white.

There was a Siren class mod in BL1 that would increase the chance for good loot drops, though I'm not sure it actually did anything.

The Vault Hunters reilc is the only thing I've seen with that stat bonus, I'm doubtful there is amything else.

Yeah, I don't think it did anything of note. At least, that's how it seemed.

I used it for my Siren that I got to level 42 before my PS3 broke. When I got a replacement and had to start again I couldn't find a class mod with it. I definitely noticed a difference in the quality of loot.

Guess it was just bad luck, then.
