I guess Destiny 2 had an update.

Buffs for sniper, fusion rifle, shotgun, smg(lmg?), pulse rifle. Biggest changes are for supers - improved hunter arc class super (now very fast), warlock dawnbringer can also move forward very very fast (as in hit a wall and die kind of fast). PvP - looks rubbish as usual.

I jumped in quickly to check it out.
Didnt read a lot about the update so went in with the impression that it'd be a massive movement speed boost.
To me, it just felt like the same as before. Didn't stuff about with weapons to see differences, but doing patrol you don't notice if something takes 1 less bullet.

Needless to say, I was in for 20minutes tops before I quit. No motivation at all.
Let me have all the DLC, knock it off and then shelve this thing so I can cut my losses falling for the hype.

Did the same @mimix and found the Titan jumping a bit 'better' but overall nothing new. I read the Hunter has had zero speed increases. Seems odd since that fail is meant to be the quickest.

I've noticed a big speed increase on warlock.

Haven't played heaps since patch, but I did stuff around with some different weapons and it's great that a lot more are now viable.

Good patch

Be nice if Bungie brought this sort of magic back into D2.

Bungie contracted Patrick Casey as a Gameplay Specialist for the next 3 months for the big revamp in September, presumably.

This is good news as Patrick has been very outspoken and a great voice in the Destiny community about what he thinks Bungie should do to make the game better. Hopefully him now being there next to them, we'll see those changes implemented.

I watched the DCP show after the Bungie Summit and they mentioned a particular moment where Bungie showed the members a change they were thinking about and the members freaked out and said 'No way, we don't think it should be done like that' so later that day they came back with a revision that the members liked.

Unfortunately, all the details from the Summit are under NDA until they become patch notes so as to not make broken promises.

If they keep up this attitude, they should be able to do a D1 in September. Will I buy the expansion? Who knows but it'll make the hardcore fans happy.

What's that smell... I think.. yes that's desperation! Panic has set in now they only have a couple of hundred thousand daily players.

So sad. I loved this franchise and they royally screwed the pooch..

No way will Spaz be dropping another $100 like they did with TTK. They have lost all chances of that dream!

So this is content post the season pass DLC? If so, no more dollars for me in this bucket.

Yep, this is Bungie's annual September "Fix The Game" expansion for $70 - $120.

Spaz had a go. It's a pretty good story for D2. Wait to cash in any weapon parts etc until you level up a bit. Then infuse everything and boooyaiaiaiaiaiaiaiai boi!

So for those had a go (given most of us already paid for this dlc), is it worth coming back?

I think I will jump back on tonight to go through the story mission, anyone interested in a reunion?

I haven't done the story or mars content yet, but am having a lot of fun with the mechanics and exotic gun changes. Everything is rather fun to use, but the highlight at the moment is gravitron Lance and tractor cannon

I cant say if it is worth for anyone else to come back, but for me it is the same old D2. Exotic weapons feel better, new strikes are ok. The new level softcaps mean it will take longer to reach max level - and in my position i am only getting 3 power engrams per week, so not worth sticking around after the story.

This is a good and fair overview of the current state of Destiny 2 with Warmind expansion, and if it is worth coming back to the game. I agree with the PvE observations.

Warning: some story spoilers

For anyone still playing - weekly clan xp power engram is bugged, do not claim this engram from Hawthorne. Instead, let it be claimed on weekly reset.
