Last week, 2 of my characters got a Vanguard Ghost out of the nightfall, this week I got another ghost. If my other 2 characters get a ghost...

Same club as you Slayer, 295 ghosts!  I actually wanted some more 3 of coins, which the game decided to give to my fireteam buddies.   Not sold in the 'better rewards'

Yep. I did a nightfall last night and got another ghost (the 3rd I've got in 4 nightfalls since the "improvement" patch, It was 307 this time, but still useless to me and all 3 of my character already have higher, and 1 strange coin... think I'd rather the 20 strange coins Smashed got.

294 ghost for me, and some 303 boots :(

Fingers crossed for the last character.

Good luck!

Destiny is the trolliest of all troll games! I got an exotic engram during the nightfall and knew immediately it would turn into my 113th Jade Rabbit.. and it did.. still dont have a Zhalo... at least it was 310 so I used it to infuse my No Time To Explain. Used NTTE through the HM raid last night and it's excellent.

Though last night was far from a complete loss as I did get 320 raid boots and a 312 sniper, thought the sniper was infusion material for my Stillpiercer  :up: up to light level 313 now.

Last week's Nightfall gave me a 280 Div... Machine Gun. I already had two at higher attack.
Essentially 3 legendary marks :(
Not sure if I bother this week from what everyone is saying.

I may have lucked out with 20 strange coins for the nightfall, but then......

For the first 2 drops in HM raid I got just mouldering shards. That's 4 drop rolls to get NOTHING - no HM stuff, no NM stuff.

I'm glad fallout is around the corner.

HM Raid last night gave me a 312 ghost (i had a 304), 300 rocket launcher (i have a 318 and 316 already) and nm gaunlets 302 (i have 310 raid infused up). Pretty disappointing raid drops since I didnt raise my light level, hopefully the sisters drop make up for it.

Sisters will only drop either the shotgun or class item.. or so the legends go... lol

My class item is already 319 so any class item will be used to infuse unless I'm lucky to get a 320, shotguns I dont use so it'll be used to infuse too if I get anything. Been lucky in the raid this week with drops so I'll probably get nothing from the sisters.

As far as nightfalls, on the plus side Valus Ta'aurc is pretty easy at least, but still very disappointing rewards.

Oh yay, a 300 ghost for my last run. ><

At least it has a type of material gathering I didn't have. Just need helium from engrams now.

Can't complain though. With hand me downs I got all 3 chars to 311 now and decrypted the 6 exotics in the bank. All turned to 310s. Picked up ruin wings on Titan which I wanted, and also for a 310 suros from the one in the bank. I then got 2 more primary engram drops this morning and one was another 310 suros and the other a 310 jade rabbit. Only other jade rabbit I had was still 290 so I'm not complaining but it also means I can infuse another weapon if I want.

Btw Akyra didn't you buy the Zhalo from Xur when he sold it?

Well that seals it, nightfalls = still not worth the time

Nope, after initially playing full on when TTK dropped and easily getting 100 strange coins a week, I've cooled off destiny in the past 2 weeks so I didn't have enough coins to buy the Zhalo when he had it.

Not a big deal as I'm not a huge fan of auto rifles (though Suros Regime was my beloved crucible weapon until it was nerfed), but I do want it for its Arc damage.

Auto rifles were and still are my least enjoyable weapon.
My prefered primary weapons are HC, SR, PR then AR.

But I cant go past the Zhalo as my preferred primary (and Exotic weap) with arc damage firstly, then its arc chain lightning and returning ammo to the magazine on double kills (which happens easily from chain lightning).
I don't even think about using a TOM, NTTE, Jade Rabbit, Suros, let alone Black Spindle, Telsto or Sleeper Sim in my exotic weapon position.

I prefer handcannons, but they arent viable in a lot of situations, my Imago Loop is an amazing cannon and I prefer to use it on patrol etc. but have to switch to something else for raids and strikes typically, mostly due to ammo / range on handcannons.

ToM destroys the Daughters of Oryx and Oryx himself, but I find it a pain any other time. Jade Rabbit is decent but other legendary scouts out perform it, NTTE was excellent in the HM raid for me last night and I think I might run with it a little more (I do have it at 310, so that probably helps), I had been using the strangers rifle in crucible anyway and NTTE is just a powered up version.

Typically though I'll use Imago Loop (Hand Cannon) or Treads Upon Stars (Scout) in my primary, Stillpiercer as my secondary and my exotic sword in heavy.

DESTINY REMINDER: Don't do the Nightfall until AFTER the December Patch drops! You may have a chance to receive some of the new exotics.


Patch should drop around 5AM - So a Wednesday run for everyone.

The nightfall this week is apparently the Dust Palace and the Psion Flayers cloaks are dropping at a decent rate according to reddit. They are something I grinded for hours and never got.

Anyone want to join me before the raid tonight to do the nightfall and get some useless ghosts as reward?

Are psion flayer cloaks just usable by hunter? What level do they drop at ?

Drop on any character, but yes, Hunter only class item.

Not sure on light level but I believe its RNG (and probably no higher then 310 at most).

Just grind SRL until rank 3 and then 310-320 class and helmets have a chance to drop every 5 minutes. Usually you get a helmet every 3 races or so and the clas item every 10.

Whilst thats a great idea and what I'm currently working towards (a few hundred XP off hitting SRL rank 3)... it doesnt help me get the Psion Flayer cloaks I've been wanting since I found out about them  :troll:

Will be grinding the hell outta SRL once I hit rank 3 to get plenty of infusion fodder.

Wow, really? Obviously RNG hates me because I didn't get one helmet last night and I was farming for hours!

I meant it's the best way to get your cloak from 300 to 320..

This game can get f*cked.

Just spent an hour trying to complete the nightfall on alternate characters, and RNG gives us a fcking orange ghost BELOW 300.

Warlock = 296 Ghost
Hunter = 304 Cloak
Titan = 303 Hung Jury SR4

What a load of crap.

Just a heads up that the nightfall is currently broken, so don't bother attempting it (more then just constantly given 290 ghosts). The Orge that is suppose to spawn at the teleport gate isn't working as intended.

On another note, it still pays to do vanguard strikes, this is an hour and a half worth (note that I actually have 2x arms and 2x leg legendaries and many many more blues):



Also picked up the Void Flayers Mantle cloak. For the record the exotics de-crypted as follows:

Primary = Bad Juju (310) (good because I only had a 280 version I brought and didn't infuse)
Heavy = Dragons Breath (good because with the Taikonaut titan helm it has tracking, new gjallarhorn)
Chest = Armantarium (bad, already had one, give me Twilight Garrison already!)
