In order to be able to fight Terramorphous the Invincible, you must have completed the main storyline in your current playthrough. You will receive the quest from Tannis in Sanctuary upon returning there after defeating The Warrior.

If you are playing through in normal mode, the quest will be level 50, and odds are your character is in the mid 30's range. Either grind through the DLC in normal mode, or start a game in True Vault Hunter mode and level yourself up so that Terramorphous is actually possible to defeat.

I've read somewhere (can't provide the source unfortunately) that Terramorphous has less health in normal mode than he does in TVHM. So after I reached level 50 in TVHM, I changed back to normal mode, and started the mission.

Head to Thousand Cuts and follow the marker, after going down some stairs and platforms off the ledge of a cliff you will eventually come to a door that requires 8 Eridium to open. Inside there is a respawn booth as well as ammo and health vending machines, so you have unlimited chances to try the fight. It won't cost you Eridium every time you die and restart, but if you leave the area you will have to pay the Eridium again.

This is a raid boss and was designed with the intention of having 4 people fight it. So if you are like me, a primarily solo player, its going to be a tough fight. If you have no shame in finding glitches to your advantage, below is a video to help you beat the boss. I used it, and it worked for me.

Things to know beforehand

- Terramorphous can smash you off the cliff extremely easily, my first time facing him I was hurled off the ledge within 20 seconds of the fight beginning and had to restart. Make sure you move closer to the wall so that this doesn't happen.

- If you enter fight for you life mode, you can come back up by shooting the tentacles. So leave one or two alive just in case you get downed.

- Watch out for the giant stones the tentacles throw at you, they can down you very easily and seem to have a large splash damage area.
