Bought it. Now i just need 4th horseman to complete my collection

I've gotten I think 3 4th horseman shotguns! They need an Auction house similar to Diablo
Did you get them from Crota or from the dlc strikes?

Just a heads up that a hot fix today has nerfed the Three of Coin trick, so don't go wasting 100 strange coins on em expecting to hit the jackpot on Draksis again.

Honestly, they never really dropped an exotic much for me anyway. I'd have to use between 5 & 10 to get an exotic.
This doesn't mean I won't still buy a crap tonne of them. If it increases my chances a little, i'm in.
I dont think i'll be dipping into my coin stash in the vault either, looks like the past week has delivered plenty of coins to buy those and whatever treasure he might have this week.

I need coins! Is there another way to get them I've missed? Selling dance moves or something?

Yes, prostitution works fine  :troll:

Ummm can't really remember how I got all my coins but I have over 100 again after spending big last week, mostly dropping as random rewards from strikes and decrypting blue engrams plus crucible.

@mimix I used 15 three of coin and got 4 exotics so I was happy with that. Will still buy some to use on strike bosses (as they're intended) though.

Then you're probably going to hate this..

My first exotic dropped after about 4.. the second came around 9.. I got to my 14th and hadn't had another drop, 1 coin left I thought about saving it for a strike / nightfall or something but then decided who cares and used it, RNGesus shone his light on me and Draksis exploded dropping 2 exotic engrams in 1 go  :troll:

Mind you, RNGesus giveth and he taketh.. as one of the engrams turned into the Ahamkara gauntlets I had already brought from Xur.. but the others turned into year 2 Ruin Wings for my titan, the stag helmet for my warlock and the lovely Jade Rabbit scout rifle

I bought 5 last weekend and have 1 left. One night I managed to get 2 exotics from one boss drop, a Helm and a special Fusion weap. Still trying to find a good primary.

I took about 15 and only got 1 exotic drop.

Crazy thing is i've had 2 exotic drops without taking one.

I got 6 exotic engrams from 30 coins. I read somewhere its about a 1in6-8 chance (15%). Which is about what I saw.
But you really need to do it over more coins to see the statistics working.

I don't think anyone has really nailed down the effect of the coins, before I tried the "trick" I read it was an exotic every 4-5 coins (so at least 1 every pack you buy), getting 4 in 15 coins is obviously overkill and extremely lucky. I think RNG is still playing a huge part in the "luck".

Ruin Wings, Light Beyond and Hawkmoon. Hot Damn!!
Pity they are the same as the blueprints at 280 and not the 290 drop versions.

I'll still hand over some coins :D

Hmmm, I got a 290 Light Beyond Nemesis.  Pretty sure it was from an Exotic engram from Xur last week.

I really quite like the new exotic system. You can collect them but they don't take up any space in your vault + you can infuse them to be higher or use them to infuse with other stuff.

I end up buying from Xur so I can unlock the Yr2 stuff cheaply (13-30 strange coins vs 150 leg marks).

plus upgrading with motes is awesome now...

I bought a helmet engram from Xur which decoded to a Light Beyond Nemesis 290 helmet.
But bought exotic Gaunlets which were 280.

We will use Legendary shards to buy engrams. You get 2 for dismantling legendary gear and get 10 from exotic gear.
Note: Exotic engrams will have previews but it changes and is only a sample of what you can potentially get

So there is a big push on reddit to boycott the microtransactions. The one use shaders has pissed a lot of weido's off big time. I'm going to leave my dude vanilla for the duration. The world has been f$%^&d up! Where's the time for pretty colours!
