If anyone is every needing players for a Raid, Weekly, Nightfall etc.. and no WpR members are on, these sites are great for finding players:

Thanks Rossi. I think this will become useful as players drop off  :)

Np, the best way to play with people without having to add them as friends is to:

Create a Party Chat, Search for the person and add them.
Then once in Party Chat, they can hover over your name and Join Session to join your destiny game/fireteam. You may need to have your Fireteam set to Public access from within Destiny Roster.
That way you can play with different people all the time without having to add them to your friend list.

So I finally hit level 30 with my second character, my Titan, as my warlock is still stuck looking for a chest piece (and I really don't care much for playing my hunter.)

After a brief moment or two of joy, and seeing a nice 30 next to my character, I was like, now what . . . .

  • Raid Armor - well I am level 30 so dont any more
  • Exotic Armour - my Titan has helm, chest and glove exotics maxed, all good there, including 2 helms.
  • Weapons - well I am missing a Raid Handcannon I wouldn't use anyway, and the Vex Mytho, but I have tons of weapons maxed of all types
  • Nightfalls - hmm, I have all the gear I need so still not sure why I am doing them :)  just fun hanging with people shooting stuff and enjoying the fun moments
  • Coins/Mute - I have enough of each that I waste them each week :)
  • Shards/Energy - nothing left to spend Shards on til I get my warlocks chest piece, Energy well spending it now on second copies of good weapons (maxed 2 x Truth, 2 x AE, 2 x VoC, 2 x Hezens Veg, 2 x Suros Regime and working in a second Pocket Infinity
  • Crucible/IB - have enough Crucible rank to buy stuff, but its still too laggy and random an experience to hook me as a goto FPS

The 2 things I want, Raid Helm and Vex Mytho are hard mode only Raid drops, so after all the effort to get to 30, the only thing left to do in terms of progress (well getting more gear aint really progress) is HM Raids and the RNG goodness? 

Bungie could at least put in a level 30 lounge or VIP wing somewhere in the Tower, so that getting to level 30 felt a bit more worth it, or am I missing something somewhere . . . .

Thankfully the game is still fun to play with others ;)

Just hit 30 on my Titan yesterday. Woooot!
Can really notice the difference in damage output and strength. Getting overrun suddenly feels manageable rather than "omfg we are all doomed!"

Really looking forward to pushing this bad boy in another raid.

I'd be happy to join you. I'll just be leveling other weapons and gear to give me some variety.
and maybe try rank some other classes up if no1 is on.

What mixture of armour do you need to get to 30?

I have 1 x normal purple, 1 x exotic, 2 x raid. Will that do, or do you need 1 x exotic and 3 x raid (or IB) ?

3x raid + 1x Exotic OR 4x raid gear or of course the selected pieces of IB armour but that's gone for now.

  • 3x Raid + 1x Exotic
  • 4x Raid
  • 1x IB + 2x Raid + 1x Exotic

but you get the general idea.

All 4 pieces need to have 30 lights on it.
so you can have all 4 raid/IB pieces, or 3 raid/IB + 1 exotic.

Given raid helm only drops in hard mode, most people will use exotic helm + 3 raid pieces.

 Normal purple only gives 27 lights which is not enough to get to level 30.

Edit: beaten in responding :)

That's shit. I hate bungie. I should stop investing shards into my purple in that case since its fucking pointless.

Edit - and also stop investing in the exotic chest piece since that is pointless too

You need to invest in your current armour so you are tough enough to compete for the raid gear, every level closer to 30 makes it easier.

So having an Exotic helm was a total fluke for me!  But it works, now just need to do some raids.

True, but after doing all that myself i've realised that it's probably pointless throwing shards/energy into armor if you're already at 29 and that armor won't get you to 30.
Definitely upgrade it to the last column (where shards/energy is required) as you can use the perks associated, but save them for lvl30 gear.

Just hit 29 or high up into it makes no difference on your weapon damage, just a little extra health points which may not be worth the cost.

I have raid boots and arms and an exotic chest to sit me at 117 light AS, I have an exotic helm shooting in the vault waiting for me so I need the raid chest. I also have 89 shards sitting there waiting.

Yeah I have 2 exotic helms (1 i picked up from Xur with the random class helmet lottery), but wish I had the raid helm so I could use my exotic chest (2 grenades are more useful to me than faster melee or confusion titan bubbles)

Maybe Xur will have a black friday special with all the gear you want :P
89 Shards?!?! And they say I hog all the shards... I think I just squandered mine.

I figured I world need shards when I get the last raid armour so I haven't been spending them.

Good things to save those shards for Raid gear Pat.

Sometimes you can get better Raid gear later on, better in terms of better/different abilities or bonuses to disc/int/str etc.  At the start you take whatever Raid gear RNG gives ya, later on you can start to get picky, but it costs a lot of shards :)

I got my Raid helmet for my Titan, so I put the raid chest piece in the vault and can finally keep Armamenatiriumniamauim on, luv that armor.  Carrying 8 rockets is fun, and the helm has some nifty bonuses, like chance of orb drops on Vex crits.

Xur tonight, bring on Gallahorn!
