Damn, I didn't even think of that one. If you don't buy the DLC, bye bye raid!

I don't understand why they start CoO missions at recommended power level 200 (later levels are slightly higher). This contributes to making it too easy. A bit of overcompensation with the power ammo drops too.


The vanilla D2 final mission was recommended power level 170. My guess is when they eventually release it with all expansions, this way there would not be a huge level jump between the main stories.

Edit: I just read the raid lair will be recommended level 300, max power level will increase to 330

Am I the only one that see's CoO and thinks Court of Oryx...?


Nope, I kept reading CoO it as court of oryx too


I regret preordering the expansions, but will play since I've already given them monies. Not eager compared to how I was on previous dlc releases.

Be prepared to fall asleep during the loading screens. I swear, I spent more time on a black screen/ship warping than actually playing the game.

So far haven't come across longer than usual loading screens. In saying that, I've always had long loading screens in destiny due to my crap internet. Normally one of the last of the fireteam to spawn at the tower

Xur is selling Prometheus Lens!!!
Go get it, he is at EDZ.

Let the laser tag begins in PVP.
(This gun is OP in PVP, Bungie said it’s “bugged” and will be patched soon).

Edit: new reset time for Xur is 4am Saturday AEST.

A QoL update incoming tomorrow morning.
Link to changes below:
https://www.reddit.com/r/DestinyTheGame/comments/7j2yvo/a_reminder_of_what_is_coming_in_the_update/?st=JB2ORA4T&sh=be4c048a

Some key things include:
- weapon masterwork
- direct gear purchase from faction vendors
- less duplication on exotics
-  Xur now sells a simpler 3 or coins
- Xur sells a special exotic engram that will decrypt into something you don’t already have

And finally if you haven’t already tried out the laser tag in crucible, you want to to try it out before it’s patched, Bungie said they gonna “fix” it in this patch.

Good. I have been missing the dead orbit legs for my hunter.

I know they sold the faction rally weapon for Glimmer... But i have over a thousand legendary shards, hopefully that will be the currency they use!

The patch will also address recent outcry that players without DLC are locked out of prestige contents in the baseline D2.

I really have no words for how incompetent they are. Did the not see the shitestorm EA had and the lost sales due to it.

Also correct me if I'm wrong but I thought a while back Sony said every platinum trophy for any game would always be available for the base copy. Devs had to ensure additional trophies showed under the DLC or weren't behind paywalls?

I reckon Bungie 'hate' the community they listen to because they know they get the information out to the masses regarding the ass hat things they are doing!

Because of this, we will update “The Prestige” Achievement/Trophy to only reference The Prestige Raid.

Bummer, doubt I'll get the platinum trophy now! I have little to no interest in the raid let alone doing the Prestige version.

I have maybe 2 legendary shards so I won't be buying anything.

I still haven't even been inclined to play the DLC yet. I was always one of the first to defend Destiny 1 and always one of the last to fall away in quiet times, but Destiny 2 is so far behind what Destiny 1 ended like that I cannot even bring myself to be bothered with it. I can see that they are (kind of) listening to feedback and working on changes, thats great, but I still just get the 'too little, too late' feeling when I look at the game on the dashboard of my PS4 and contemplate playing it.

Even when I remind myself that I was stupid enough to buy the collectors edition, and the DLC with it, so I've paid for this steaming pile of crap, I just still cant see the value in playing it.

Here's to hoping they fix it completely at some point, and here's to hoping they don't then try to charge us another $80 to play it in its final form.

I guess its not worth buying the expansion pass (1 and 2)?

Should I just sell the game for $20 or so and just buy it again later in some form of collection if the game is any better down the track?

Oh, you know they will. They'll also promise us that they understand Destiny 2 had a rough launch and it is very disappointing to see us repeat the same mistakes as when we first launched Destiny but we promise we've learned valuable lessons, we're going to continue adding to the Destiny franchise, we promise our next game will be everything you want and everything we want it to be.

Insert E3 hype trailer, insert disappointment in September with the same mistakes repeated. This isn't a Goldilocks situation!

Sadly I wouldn't be surprised if this is exactly how it plays out.

I guess when they said they had a 10 year plan for Destiny, they meant it'll take 10yrs to get it right.

I just want to be clear, I'm usually the last person to grab a pitchfork and complain about games and how they're developed as over the years, being so invested into the gaming scene and listening to developer talks, behind-the-scenes chatter, podcasts etc has taught me to be a little patient with devs as they work on the issues. Only every now and again, I have to draw a line and voice my opinion about some games where developers just keep doing the same thing over and over again expecting it to change.

Unfortunately, Bungie and DICE have crossed that line and it's going to take a long time for them to earn my trust back.

I couldn't recommend it - one night of story content, endgame same loop of getting power engrams each week until you reach max level, raid is ok.

I did 3 heroic strikes last night - all were the exact same strike.

I agree with your post, and am usually one of the more sceptical (read: troll) people around, but dice had crafted a really good game (from my beta impressions). It's EA that fucked it.

For those wondering how Masterwork works, here’s a link explaining it.

A very positive change and adds fun to our beloved weapons ..

Hopefully they can extend this to armour as well in the future.

Logged into Destiny to use the guaranteed new Exotic on my Hunter (Ginger) in the hopes of finally getting the Oroheus Rigs - this is the Exotic that burnt me out trying to get.

I got it!! Yay!

I still don't feel the need to play though :(
