Title: Destiny 2
Post by: Slayer7744 on January 23, 2016, 04:01:13 AM
Didn't know where to post this so decided to make a new thread to make it easier.

Looks like Destiny 2 won't be releasing in 2016 after all.

Being a game that sucks in the content area, I'm all for a delay. Take all the time you need just stop running bloody PvP events!

Yeah I want more content and a sweet story, but honestly if they released the same thing in a different setting with new raids etc I'd still buy it in an instant and play the crap out of it.

Pretty much this. The social aspect of Destiny makes up for so many of its flaws and its core mechanics are tight.

Seeing as though Destiny was only rumoured to be coming in Sept (though most expected it)  I take this rumoured delay with a grain of salt. The fact is given its Activision they'll more likely push a broken game out then delay it.

I don't know if I would bother with Destiny 2 if it followed the same formula.

I'd really like to see it open world, as in not needing to go to the towers to find a bunch of people, and there being proper things to do out there other than just some events that pop up from time to time.

Also the bosses need a big improvement imo, The whole having to kill random monsters is kind of annoying, Where as just having to kill one big tough monster dude while dodging stuff is fun, like in wow and stuff.

I originally had high hopes for destiny, thinking of Mass effect with co op.

I'll probably still get destiny 2 but Mass Effect will be higher on my priority list (can't recall release dates) & if division is top notch i might still be playing that come sept.
Title: Re: Destiny 2
Post by: AkyraStrike on January 24, 2016, 01:41:30 AM
Frankly I just find I'm bored of single player games nowadays..  High hopes for the division but then again I had high hopes for ESO and that died.

Like I said, sure destiny could've done things a lot better but what other games are there out there like it? Warframe maybe but it just doesn't have that fun factor destiny has for me.

I think another thing to keep in mind is that destiny was held back by being on ps3 and xb360.. Rumours point to Destiny 2 being current gen only.

There is zero information about end game content for The Division. Sounds like once you play through the story there will only be the dark zone to keep you playing - and repeating story missions on hard level. That will get stale fast and I wouldn't expect it to last until September......unless there is new information released soon then my hype is deflated.

Not sure about mass effect as I skipped the third after I didn't like the changes in the second (linear mission progression and more focus on being shooter rather than RPG). Would be hard to go back to x360 and play through 2&3 now.

I got my coin worth out of destiny. Will get Destiny 2 just in case it goes close to the clan fun we managed to get.

I feel the same way but really hope there will be some major changes for Destiny 2. Just grinding to get every weapon/armour doesn't float my boat (that's the only objective left for me in TTK). The RNG is so awful that you are not rewarded for effort.

I feel a bit the same about single player games. Got 80 hours into FO4 and now not motivated to continue. Was thinking of jumping into a free pc MMO - but they will kind of be single player anyway while levelling. I have my eye on Overwatch as it looks like FPS scrubs like me can even play some classes.


Destiny certainly did something right in terms of creating a fun multiplayer co-op experience. I have not seen any other game implement that aspect so well.

Destiny 2 hopefully won't be held back by the old hardware restrictions.

As much as I enjoyed MGS, I haven't gone back to finish for similar reasons. I also only got half way in Dragon Age too.
Sp games suffer when so many games come out and I find it hard to go back as Good as they are compared to a co op game. I stopped destiny and came back a few times without much issue.

World of Tanks is fun, co op and rewards effort and all tanks can be achieved eventually for free, so that may be the next one I'm into for a while.

Guardians can live forever, provided their ghost is with them, so a couple hundred years ahead we could still continue our characters story.

Are you talking about the sparrow racing? SRL (Sparrow Racing League) ran for a few weeks back in December last year as a special event, it had 2 tracks, 1 on venus and 1 on mars. Dropped rewards at good light levels so it was a good farming event along with the SRL progress book like the year 2 moments of triumph / Rise of Iron books.

Rank 5 was where you topped out your rewards (much like iron banner). We had many WPR races too.

This is exciting, if all those rumours are true, sounds like a great improvement over what we have now. Shame we'll have to leave our characters behind though.

EDIT: I almost don't feel like putting more hours into my Guardian now, what's the point if I'm just going to start fresh in 2017?

For funzies? :troll:

But really, I understand the sentiment, but in general (and even more so with grindy games like Destiny), it comes down to do you enjoy it? At any point (with any game) if the answer is no, then play something else otherwise you'll get salty.

I'd like to be able to take my character forward, especially given Destiny was spruiked as a 10 year game etc.. but it's hard to see with the changes they intend to make how it would work exactly.

For me the biggest disappointment is the "late 2017" release window.. after it being apparently pushed back from releasing this year, I was hoping we'd see it no later then May.

The no character transfer I kinda expected.

If all the current classes, abilities, gear, perks, consumables, etc will not exist in D2, then what are you really transferring . . . our characters dont even have names  :(

I am sure they will give D1 players a starting reward in D2 . . . a free shader  :troll:

A XP booster, exclusive founders sparrow and ghost along with a materials boost and free weapons that will be outdated as soon as you level up.

I guess with PC's entering the scene the chances of dedi servers are high and we'll most likely get a 60fps title. The more I think about it, the more I'm becoming OK with them starting fresh, D1 was an experiment and it turned out to be a huge success for Bungie and Activision so this next one should be great especially without last gen holding them back.

Easy fix Ant. Set up a time and a couple of us will help you fly through the missions you have. You will rank up quick smart. Also being close to Spaz's awesome Titan generally makes most people a little more awesome themselves. It's a perk I have  :P

... last gen holding them back.

and all silent agreements/exit clauses with Microsoft will have expired. 

I am sure Bungie have seen the impact Blizzard and OW have had in the PC competitive scene in just a few months and want to break into that space and the $$.   I hope they can combine a good PvE MMO-FPS with a proper competitive PvP platform for tournis.  Hard to do, but D1 was a good attempt given all the restrictions.

https://www.vg247.com/2017/03/03/destiny-2-power-possessions-eververse-related-items-and-currency-wont-carry-over/

Quote
According to Bungie, sequels “represent the start of a new adventure for every player,” which means there needs to be new worlds and stories to tell.

This also means new loot, powers and the like will be acquired. Because of this, power, possessions, Eververse-related items and currency won’t carry over from Destiny into Destiny 2.

However, the studio plans to preserve character personalization of player Guardians. This means class, race, gender, face, hair, and marking selections for characters which have completed the Black Garden story mission and are at level 20 and above will carry over into Destiny 2.

Unless someone does a launch week discount... looks like JB would only be $10 cheaper for standard (who would buy that anyway -- you know you'll want the expansions eventually)
And the Deluxe edition (game+expansions) is the same at JB as the PSN Store @ $150 - only diff being the physical comes with other stuff (books, cards, crap) included.

PSN store has a $139 version in between that has game+expansions.
Seems extra $10 for deluxe just gives you a Sword, Emote & Emblem. WOW!

From memory Destiny 1 was $69 on launch day from JB, so it wouldnt surprise me to see that again. But yeah I regret getting phyiscally and traded it in and brought digital when TTK dropped anyway, so I will be going digital from the start this time.

Seems extra $10 for deluxe just gives you a Sword, Emote & Emblem. WOW!

EB always seem to sell out then you have JB who still have it up for preorder ¯\_(ツ)_/¯   -- JB is who I went through. EB screwed me over once too many in 2016, they've really dropped in quality of customer service in my experience.

I have to agree, I think I will be back on PS4 a lot more when this launches. Seeing the popularity and life of Destiny 1 with you guys has me confident that there will be a lot of people I leech from lol. Heaps of my RL mates and their mates are picking this up too so if I get on early or not, I should be good to have some people to play with. Its what kind of made me sway off PS4 coz most people are sensible and play earlier in the evening and dont finish late.

Dare I say it, it looks like theyve actually put a lot of thought into a story this time! The cutscenes, as they did in D1, look amazing.

Graphics look like they're a step up too, leaving the last gen behind helps.. (or was the stream done on PC?)

New classes look nice, Titan's (Sentinel) are capt america, hunters are just a new looking blade dancer (Arcstrider), warlock is Dawnblade, a flying hammer bro haha

A few new weapon types shown that will freshen up gunplay too, along with the new weapon system of three types: kinetic, energy, and power weapons instead of the primary, secondary, and heavy classifications as before.

Clans will have custom banners and names. There will be progression and rewards across the entirety of the clan for members, nice!

Seriously hyped, I know I should know better after D1, but hell, if D2 gives me another 1500hrs gameplay that it's a win for me!

I'm less hyped now as it does seem like more of the same, but with a few more things to do on the maps instead of just patrols.

I was critical of the need to seek groups outside of the game in Destiny, so good to see more in-game matchmaking. Will be very useful to tidy up unfinished activities before weekly reset.

No mention of what ships will be used for now (no need to return to orbit) - the rumour was/is ship combat.

Still only 1 raid (would prefer several raids to offer both variety and deeper progression).

That being said, it will probably be the only multiplayer game I put serious hours into


note: During the reveal I saw the symbols from those hats/caps on player banners.


EDIT: I also want info about how the game runs on ps4pro vs ps4. I am waiting for something worth upgrading for.

@kunfushun @euphoricx

The glow in the dark Crota is a "Chase" variant, which means it's rare. The approximate ratio of chase rares is 1 in 36, and collectors snap them up real quick, its luck of the draw.

Apparently JB Hi Fi will get some chase variants for the pre-order batches.

Xur and Atheon are exclusive to EB / Zing here in Australia.

It would be nice if this clan system involved something similar to the Division where only people in the Fireteam could swap gear rewards with eachother for a limited time after completing an activity/strike/raid..

This would allow mix to trade over the exotics that he doesn't need :troll:

In the same order as D1:
Warlock
Titan
Hunter

With no titan bubble I expect my main to be Warlock, but will try them all.

All they talked about is clan support in game. And as part of that there will be some clan re are system, sounds like some clan goal or something where everyone can get reward.

It would be nice if this clan system involved something similar to the Division where only people in the Fireteam could swap gear rewards with eachother for a limited time after completing an activity/strike/raid..

This would allow mix to trade over the exotics that he doesn't need :troll:

Wow. You'll do anything to get a piece of my exotics.  :troll:

The clan rewards system sounds like a set of collective objectives that the whole clan  can contribute to and get rewards from (even if you don't happen to help with a particular objective)

Yeh, who am I kidding. I'm sure I'll buy it, especially coz I like awesome vfx and the sci fi setting.
Then complain about repetitiveness and not getting the loot I want.
Then stop playing, and complain about the extortionist price on inevetible DLC.
Then purchase that and start the cycle again!

@kunfushun @euphoricx

The glow in the dark Crota is a "Chase" variant, which means it's rare. The approximate ratio of chase rares is 1 in 36, and collectors snap them up real quick, its luck of the draw.

Apparently JB Hi Fi will get some chase variants for the pre-order batches.

Xur and Atheon are exclusive to EB / Zing here in Australia.


oooo is that confirmed that the version at jb is getting the rare glow in the dark variant?

Not officially confirmed that JB will get the chase variant, but the way Funko package and dispatch pops means there's a chance some of the JB stock will be chase.

The biggest issue will be if the person at JB knows that the chase variants are valuable and decides to tuck it away for themselves etc.

Showing my nerd here as I collect pops, have about 120 including one that is worth $140 (I paid $20 for it haha)

It depends how you want to play the game. PC is reportedly silky smooth with its high frame rates, but the main draw of the game is playing with others. For me it wouldn't be the same experience without the WpR peeps. My advice is to play on the system your friends play on.

You also know we have an active Destiny community here at WpR on ps4 (expecting at least 2 full raid groups per week) - so you won't be short of teammates if you go the console route. During the Destiny peak, there were WpRians online most nights from say 7pm to 12am (even earlier than 7pm too).

If using controller in FPS is a concern, I can assure you Destiny makes it easy - the gunplay is excellent on console and it is easy to hit headshots in PvE. It may even be my first console FPS - and no doubt you have heard tales about my Destiny prowess.


If you are just looking for the most competetive PvP experience, I'm sure PC will be the go - but as you said, it will be plagued by cheaters. EDIT: the PvP also won't be seriously competetive on PC due to being peer to peer.

The server model is very different to D1, its a new hybrid tech as described below,

https://www.gamespot.com/articles/why-destiny-2-doesnt-use-dedicated-servers/1100-6450352/ (https://www.gamespot.com/articles/why-destiny-2-doesnt-use-dedicated-servers/1100-6450352/)

They are spending a lot of money on cloud tech to ensure that every activity is hosted on their servers, not on a players console or PC.  In game data may still flow P2P but the host will be a server, hence the hybrid :)

All sounds good . . . . in theory ;)  Cheating on PC will be more difficult but only til the hackers work out what traffic in game is to the server vs whats to peer.

Short answer.....yes.

Subclasses are changing, weapon slots changing, more to do in areas than just patrols, there will be maps, and public events will have icon and countdown timer, a type of matchmaking will be included for raids and nightfalls (and any other activity I assume) called guided games - so it will be easier to raid whenever you find the time, apparently better storytelling and lore will be in the game rather than on website. PvP will all be 4v4.

If you mean like ranked play then no D1 didn't have it and it's not been mentioned for D2 either.

A lot of the optional quests and year 1 exotic weapon bounties funneled people into PvP so I'd hazard a guess that almost everyone has a little exposure to PvP in Destiny, plys Iron Banner was always a good source of gear.

No details yet, but there has been a hint of "seasons". Some youtubers have decided to not cover D2 because there won't be a competetive incentive. You may need to wait for devs to release more in-depth info.

I think the most competetive PvP in D1 was something called trials - and I think people had to be good to get to "the lighthouse" where they could buy things (items locked behind a skill wall). Good players even took money to help others get to the lighthouse.

Even after the recent updates, getting to the Lighthouse is pointless, all you do there is open a chest to get a chance at very high Light weapons but there's no need as all the bounties give pretty good rewards just for completing them.

EDIT: I only ever got to the Lighthouse once and the rewards really weren't worth the effort hence the changes they made to the bounties.

The lighthouse was worth it when it 1st appeared, as you could get good primaries (the summoner and messenger) with burn effects as legendaries.  I still have a few of those in the vault, but once they stopped allowing leg primaries with burn effects to be upgraded (or given out) it wasn't worth the grind.

The PS4 exclusive Exotic sniper rifle "Borealis" can change elements on at will between all 3 (arc, solar, void).. pretty cool! (que xbone fans tears...

Also, there's apparently a loose dialogue system in D2, according to reports in a Game Informer article there will be times where you can actually talk to NPC's and ask them questions etc. don't know how indepth this will be, but it is a nice step in the right direction to further the story aspect of the Destiny universe.

For all those Capt Cosmodrome Titans out there, it's been confirmed that the Ward of Dawn (Titan Bubble) will be making a return, from an interview with Luke Smith:

Quote
"So one of the Sentinel trees actually has the option to, when you cast your super, you can press and hold the super activation and you’ll place a Ward of Dawn instead. "

Source: http://www.pcgamer.com/destiny-2s-luke-smith-on-pc-features-pvp-new-subclasses-and-more/2/


Also they now have the ability to buff / nerf particular weapons instead of weapon archetypes:

Quote
"We have some different tools at our disposal for Destiny 2 because of the way we’ve built the weapons. We’re actually going to be able to do some different types of modifications to weapons, where in Destiny 1 we largely modified whole archetypes in large balance patches. Let’s say Clever Dragon, the high rate-of-fire pulse rifle, is really powerful in the current meta, we’re going to hit all high rate-of-fire pulse rifles. In Destiny 2, if we have a weapon that is a specific infractor, we’ll have the ability to go in and just touch that.

If we scan the legendary hand cannon weapon space—and I talk about hand cannons all the time because they’re like my personal fantasy weapon, I love walking around with a giant pistol where accuracy is a priority—and when we see, across the legendary hand cannons, underrepresentation for a particular hand cannon, then we’ll be able to go in and address that hand cannon, not necessarily have to touch every hand cannon in the game when we do it. This is something that the team’s really excited about being able to do."

“The raids should always be challenging you to cooperate, collaborate, and communicate. But I don’t want to bring the difficulty down. We had a conversation – we have a brand new death penalty in the game for raiding. I think it’s pretty unfun to die and just watch on hard mode. So we have a brand new death penalty and on the normal mode raids people have talked about wanting to remove it because it’s different and why not just use the strike difficulty. But we don’t want to change the difficulty because we believe our players are smart. We believe that motivated groups of players can take on these challenges and complete them. We’ve seen that.”

Yeah, I thought the whole reason for them introducing this was because of the community going outside to the likes of LFG, reddit fireteams, etc for events that didnt have match making and they wanted to include similar within the game.

Hell, the presentation even said they wanted to make sure everyone was included and able to play all content, not excluded due to lack of friends - which is what i thought this would handle.

I can understand why no Hard Mode activities, as they should require more teamwork, but D1 showed that a team of 6 randoms could quite easily beat all hardmode content.

I guess if it doesn't work for what people need it to do, the other websites will still be around. I actually think they'll still be used more so than guided games.

I guess, but then you end up in a clan with people like @mimix :troll:

Haha. Who else you gonna throw your knives at @AkyraStrike ?

Some Destiny 2 clan info was released in Bungies weekly update. Main point being that you can migrate the existing Destiny clan into a Destiny 2 clan from July 25th - must be done within one month. A clan can only exist in either Destiny or Destiny 2 - not both.

The clan also needs some roster updates as it's been a while. Also, might have to remove some members who've made it clear they're not planning to come back anytime soon.

From the earlier quote: You can change the person responsible for the clan organisation - during the 1 month period starting July25th
Quote
Starting on July 25, 2017, Clan leaders should visit their base of operations on Bungie.net and decide if they want to convert their Group to a Destiny 2 Clan. Clan Founders will be able to transfer their title and permissions to another member who will be a more faithful leader for future adventures. If you have bigger plans for the existing Group that hosts your Clan, you can leave it as is and explore your own community purpose outside of the game. This housekeeping period will last for one month. After that time, new Clan creation functionality will go live on Bungie.net to support Destiny 2. Stay tuned for more information on that deadline!

I'll be doing the same.
Half the reason I upgraded to a PRO. Figured since my launch PS4 was getting on, had spat discs out a number of times (tho not so much recently) and was being damn noisy, I should get as much for trade-in before it died.

So trade-in went on PSN cards which will buy D2 digital. Now just to decide if the bonus emblem & sword are worth the extra $10. Given that the gear provided for D1 pre-orders was useless after 10mins.

Played the first mission and the strike, feels solid same as D1.

Didn't like they move the sniper rifle to the heavy slot as it certainly isn't as big damage as heavies.

Also not sure if it just me but the hunter feels "slower"... the new hunter super doesn't feel anything different to arc blade, just a bit more powerful against a group.

Gonna try the titan tonight.

There does appear to be texture improvements during gameplay though (going by comparisons on YouTube).

I'm not seeing any of this. floating in orbit (director menu) or flying to games everything looks really crisp for me.
character model and weapons looks good too when i browse and rotate them.
Now that i've said that they'll probably start appearing though.

Gameplay feels same as D1. Sounds are a big improvement. Guns and grenades sound great (the few i've gotten access to at least), even the Titan boost sounds better.

I think Battlefield 1 was unintentionally like this, whilst technically 60fps on both the OG and PRO, the OG would be consistently 10-15 frames lower than the PRO in digital foundry's tests.

I didn't notice any issues during gameplay, looks quite good and steady framerate - in the analysis you can see some jaggies though. HDR would be a good improvement if it gets included later, but I would not expect any graphical improvement before release.

Pity they didn't look at the inventory screen as those models really stand out more (as you see them while not concentrating on playing the game).
Title: Re: Destiny 2
Post by: AkyraStrike on July 21, 2017, 08:17:38 AM
Ok so I finally got to play last night, I couldn't really see any jaggies or graphical issues myself, but I wasn't really looking for them and to be honest I though the graphics looks an upgrade on D1 and was marveling at the super and grenade effects in particular.

I played the homecoming mission and the strike as a hunter, tried poledancer in the mission and enjoyed the super, it just felt like a tighter, prettier bladedancer but I can see it going the same way as the bladedancer, being used in crucible and for a bit of fun mostly as it was largely useless in the strike as you needed long range supers to attack the boss. And now they've taken invis off the hunter it makes it even less useful. I ran golden gun in the strike and quite liked the changes they made.

I then played warlock in the homecoming mission, whilst I didn't die once with the hunter, I died multiple times with the lock, I do like the improvement to his jump and the super looks bad ass but I think I'll be sticking to hunter again as a main. I havent tried Titan yet, but probably will do it tonight.

On weapons, the scout rifles felt weak, really weak. I was using handcannon + auto/submachine combo mostly, and oh my god I am in love with the sunshot exotic, so saying that I wont ever get it drop in the full game. I really hope they don't change handcannons as I loved how they felt.

I used the exotic SMG that drops for the warlock, Riskrunner, it felt good in close quarters but its range was bad, which is expected for SMGs.
Title: Re: Destiny 2
Post by: Leinad300 on July 21, 2017, 09:54:26 AM
I tried titan last night and can see this will be a very popular choice for many people. The captain America she is supper is probably the best of the three IMO, you can block, throw with it, very useful.

The titan wall is also great for protection.

The new titian jump throws me off to begin with, it feels like it's going more upward instead of forward.

The new striker titan class is also fun, you get a few more titan smashes now.

What I am worry about is that pvp and pve are not separated which means they will tune weapons and classes more towards pvp and resulting in pve taking a hit as per D1.

Read it somewhere that they purposely "slow down" all classes so that pvp can be more balanced, but this takes away some of the agility fun we have in pve.

Ok, just tried warlock and I like it. The super is a glorified titan hammer, but the special ability is very helpful (heal or buff), love that warlock exotic smg.

Now I've tried all 3 class I felt that hunter is a bit under done. Both titan and warlock feels like a powerhouse to me but hunter doesn't seem to pack similar damage, by it could just be me :troll

Will give hunter another try later.

All comments are for pve btw.

I've only tried Titan and Warlock so far (and both class variants)

Titan
Sentinel:
I found rather underwhelming. The shield is cool and all, but I can only manage to throw it once. Otherwise it's like running around with a relic striking and pushing. Still cool and happy it makes this class a more offensive class where you can use your super more often, rather than only holding a bubble. Good you have the choice to drop a bubble also.

Striker:
Still a favourite for me. I like these changes. Being able to do multiple smashes, or run around with the charge is awesome. It's almost like the titan has become a bladedancer without the blades.
Also like how the shoulder charge lasts longer whilst running - and i'm ok that it's not a 1 hit kill in pvp.

Exotic Story Weapon: Sweet Business
This auto rifle is like a thunderlord that fires faster the longer you shoot, but has the bonus of continuously shooting if you manage to run over ammo drops at the same time. (I didnt manage to test this out as I wasn't moving around enough to get continuous pick ups)

Warlock
Dawnblade:
Not super impressed by this either (pun intended), not as much as I was just watching the reveal. It's still cooler than Sentinel i think, but feels the same as Sunsinger throwing grenades, except now it's insta-damage fireballs instead of delayed fusions, etc.

Voidwalker:
Another favourite. The changes to nova bomb are awesome! I love how now it's a single orb that flies till it hits something and then shatters into about 10 smaller orbs. Running through the strike saw several times where I managed to obliterate at least 10 enemies in a single shot.

Exotic Story Weapon: Riskrunner
This submachinegun is like a mix between Zhalo Supercell and Super Good Adivce. It has the change to spark chain lightning and when it does it triggers a clip reload. This was awesome in the story mission as you could manage to stay in the open with the warlocks shield boost rift thing and continuously proc lightning/reload on the mobs in front of you. Favourite of the exotic weapons so far.

Hunter
Not tried yet. Will be next.

Not sure how many people have noticed that it appears you will be able to swap the elemental damage around on exotic energy weapons - take a look in your inventory and you can see it has an upgrade slot for the element as well as weapon skin. Unsure if this also extends to legendaries.

I still have not managed to play through the strike. Have tried a handful of times but randoms keep looking for hidden areas.

I've gone through once, the randoms I was with also went searching and I joined in, but after a bit we got on with it. Happy to get a team together tonight and run through it.

Not sure how many people have noticed that it appears you will be able to swap the elemental damage around on exotic energy weapons - take a look in your inventory and you can see it has an upgrade slot for the element as well as weapon skin. Unsure if this also extends to legendaries.

I noticed and i also noticed that the modification boxes weren't available on the exotics.

Thing is, will that mean we pick up the elemental damage mods and other mods in game through either pick-ups or rewards, or do we get shafted up the butt and have to but them from eververse?

I love the idea of once we have our new favourite weapon all we have to do is change the elemental damage to suit whatever our situation is.  Makes it more realistic.  Looks like we can also mod the weapon frame type ans some other things as well.  Hopefully we just need to unlock upgrade slots in the weapons and apply our own mods rather than have to unlock the set mods already allocated.

And Yes - I am still alive :)

I dont know, call me a cynic, but the thing is that Destiny 1 always ended up with everyone striving for those tier 1 weapons like Fatebringer, VoC, etc. and we all used generally the same ones when we need the particular burn. Now it just means rather than switching between 3 or so weapons of each flavour in each slot, we'll all find that 1 gun that kills all and just rotate the burn on it.. unless its a one off thing and not something you can turn on / off?

Actually, now that I type that, I think making the element change to a weapon would have to be a permanent change, as the PS4 exclusive sniper rifle Borealis special perk is to switch elements, kind of makes it defunct as an exotic perk if all weapons can do it on the fly.

And Yes - I am still alive :)

Always good to know :troll:

Thats true, basic and simple can be good at times, but it can also get boring quick for a game you pour too many hours into haha.. I think given my play time over this past year has been severely reduced compared to how it was, Destiny will suffice and last me longer that it previously did before I burnt out. And hey, Job Sim is great, I got all the trophies haha

I'm the same, but across all 3 classes.
And oddly enough, not for the subclasses with the new flashy moves.

Seems prices are going the way of the first game, I remember I only paid about $54 from JB for it on day 1, though that might've involved some other $10 voucher I'd got from buying something else..

I'm a total sucker and given I haven't brought a game aside from Elite Dangerous ($54) since January this year, I'm letting myself be stupid. I have the CE pre-ordered from EB for all the useless collectable crap, and then because I'm lazy and dont like changing discs.. I have the standard edition pre-ordered digital too  :grave:

Raid scheduled to go live Sept 13th 10am pdt

Nightfall launches with game on Sept 6th

Trials launches Sept 15th 10am pdt


Loot changes:

Game detects your highest possible power level and will give you loot based on this level (you don't have to be wearing highest level gear for it to count).

 Engram power levels are established when they drop (not when decoded) - this also applies to strike rewards.

The worse way to start would be a Hunter or Worlock   :troll: :troll: :kissmyass: :kissmyass:

Summary:

Destiny 1 with more shiny graphics...

Class wise, new Titan void subclass called Sentinel, new Warlock Solar subclass called Dawnblade, Hunter got the blades taken away and handed a pole..... other subclasses making a return but re-worked: Striker Titan, Voidwalker Warlock and Gunslinger Hunter.. the 3rd classes likely to return as re-worked at a later date.

Each class also has an ability that can be used regardless of subclass.. Titans hide behind walks and cry to their mommas, Warlocks can buff damage or heal with a pool of what I assume is urine from them being scared and Hunters can dodge... using the ability we already had in nightstalker... thats now been taken away...

More focus on story, rumoured to be approximately 80 missions and estimated to take 15-20hrs to complete the main story. Public events now appear on the map and also have 'heroic' versions which can be activated by doing something special during each event. The map of the European Deadzone is apparently the largest playable area to date, bigger than the cosmodrome + plaguelands put together from D1. Other quests and activities available such as Lost Sectors (mini adventure zones with a boss at the end).

Clans are now in game, and have 'seasons' where you rank up the clan and get rewards, everyone is eligible for the rewards even if you don't play as much as others.

Raid drops 13 Sept, plenty of rumours and leaks about it already but I've been staying away.

I believe the item level gets set when you PICK UP the engrams now, not when you decode it. So no point in saving them as it is pre destined, almost like it's destiny  :troll:

I finished the campaign and got my first legendary engram, decrypted a 202 gauntlet, then i got this crucible engram and dropped a 210 gauntlet and 210 auto rifle.
Members need to make they pick up the banner, because it says only 7 members, but on the bungie site we have about 30. So any activities players do without the banner will not count to the clan xp.

Yep, this!

Each player can only earn 5000xp for the clan each week and it's 100,000xp to level up, so we need everyone contributing.

Plus in getting the 5000xp you get a legendary drop for doing it

Probably works better on Arc as Hunter nightstalker does bugger all damage (though obviously helps others) and the golden gun is weak as, whereas the pole dancer is actually really powerful. Along with both Titan and Warlock Arc classes doing good damage, it would probably be the best.

Though having solar with hammer bro, fake flying wannable hammer bro, and golden gun could also work.

Post by: AkyraStrike on September 11, 2017, 10:32:33 AM
Just saw a video of 3 guys using the strategy well.. 2x Warlocks and a Titan, all on solar (so hammer bro and 2x warlock wannabe hammer bros)... waited for the solar phase before even attacking the boss, then burnt him down in seconds with their supers, very effective. By avoiding damaging him at all until the right phase, he skips going up to his shielded towers, so you avoid having to carry the charge to defuse it.

Now if only I could actually get to the boss with enough time left....

It was a challenge getting through never mind the timer.
You'd think they would have the timer for better loot... and then avg loot if you finish after the timer instead of straight up fail exit

Yeah that I could like, kind of like the heroic public events. Could be that if you finish in the timer you get a greater chance at exotic / high level gear, otherwise you get standard, and like the raids use to be, you could repeat to try and beat the timer but get nothing if you already got the non-timer rewards etc.

If you have an exotic equipped when you roll exotic engrams you get the same item 70% of the time.
Next time unequip the exotic then roll the engrams.
Alternatively you can use this in your favour to roll a high stat in a particular spot e.g. you have that 150 helmet from mid campaign, roll a new high power exotic helmet.
Not sure if it's a big or intended.

I found out the hard way last night that infusing Exotics into Legendaries doesn't grant the full PL of the Exotic.

This happens due to a mod being on the piece that grants a +5 power level boost, when infusing it only takes into account base level, keep this in mind when infusing.

Also keep in mind that if you have an item (X) with a +5, say 270 power total, if you infuse a 267 power item (Y) onto it the new total power for it (X) will be 272 (due to the +5 mod still being there)

I'm not sure if all the +5 mods are counted during engram power drop calculations. My max power is about 274, whereas my engrams and rewards are only 268.

This happened to me alot then i found out you can preview exotic engrams .

It shows the 6 or so it could drop as . Every 5 mins it changes so you can wait till it has less exotics you own in the preview . Has solved the prob for me .

Just go to the engram and use triangle .

Once you're past 265 engrams will only ever drop +5 under your currently light except for exotic engrams and luminescent (milestone rewards) engrams.

To clarify times for the different modes/resets.

With the weekly and daily resets, these all occur at 7PM AEST and 8PM AEDT during daylight savings.

When Trials and Raids launch, Bungie like to be in the office to rectify any issues that may occur quickly, this is 3AM AEST/4AM AEDT.

Sorry I was wrong with the -5, it's actually -7.. this is for blue drops and legendary decryption only, exotics will always drop higher, but as Rossi said drops never take into account your mod + level.

Rewards are the only legendary engram that will drop higher, and the luminescent planetary engram from milestones.

One last bit of info - you can check the current drop power level at banshee if you have handed in all your rep items - this can help decide when to get your power engram rewards.

I've had one or two blue screens of death but nothing ongoing and no "named" errors.

Just another comment on 'power level' and your drops, basically your true power level is whatever the blues are dropping at, your 'displayed power level' is affected by mods, this is whay frustratingly I'm level 278 but still get 277 exotics dropping.

once you go over Power 265, your base power level (level not taking into account mods) will be the number that all your drops are based on. So blues will drop at your BPL, Legendary engrams will drop at this and rank ups from all planets and tower NPC's will drop at this too. Exotic engrams will drop 5 higher. Powerful engrams drop about 7 higher I think. Exotic quest items and Night fall rewards etc also drop at 7 higher, but the Exotics will have a built in mod so this might look like being 12 higher.

So, glimmer doesn't seem to be an issue in this game due to the higher cap but you still hit it pretty quickly and you won't earn anymore. Gold area chests give 1000 glimmer, normal chests give btw 100-250 glimmer and you get them from lost sector loot, public events and pretty much every enemy you pop.

Not sure if you all know this but while you're on your way to levelling up to 280+, spend your oodles of glimmer buying rare mods from the gunsmith. Do it. Do it now! Use it all!!! (maybe keep 20K for "stuff" until you hit 100K again)

When you hit 280, you'll be able to convert a set of 3 of the exact same rare mod into a legendary mod. Using these will add +5 to whatever you apply it to. Mods are slot specific so you need helmet mods, leg mods etc. Therefore you need a tonne of mods. Weapon mods are the hardest to find, especially kinetic ones.

You can also store mods in your vault as well so keep buying them and convert them when you hit 280.

Yep, this is how / why I went from 279 to 288 last night :up: once you hit 280 and add mods to all and everything, it jumps you up significantly, but it masks your base power level a lot and means drops will be much lower, so be prepared for that. I'm PL 288 but my Base PL is 278 (this is what my blues drop at).

So, glimmer doesn't seem to be an issue in this game due to the higher cap but you still hit it pretty quickly and you won't earn anymore. Gold area chests give 1000 glimmer, normal chests give btw 100-250 glimmer and you get them from lost sector loot, public events and pretty much every enemy you pop.

I will likely forget this awesome tip since i'm constantly sitting on/near max glimmer... i'm spending it on whatever bs cayde is selling.

Title: Re: Destiny 2
Post by: Jykel on September 14, 2017, 02:50:22 PM
Yeah good tip Fonz, as you can not find Kinetic mods or get em as drops, apparently they have to be created.  So if you get a lot of purple burn effect mods, start breaking those down for mod parts/crafting.   

Adding mods (purple) to gear is about 5k a pop, so keep some glimmer spare to actually apply them.  I may have spent too much glimmer on applying shaders before I realised my follie but looks 1st, power level 2nd ;)

I'm looking for fireteam to do the following quests (they appear as item drops):

Ray Kings Crew - step 2 crucible, not sure if needing full fireteam or if everyone also needs to have the quest (or already done the quest). Happy to do step 1 if anyone needs.

I managed to complete the Rat King Quest - not by doing step 2. It completed for me when I finished nightfall with time remaining - thus skipping step 2  ???

do you need to have someone in the fireteam that has the quest unlocked and not complete yet so you can complete your nightfall 5mins left step?

Yes, but I'm not sure if the quest must be incomplete by other fireteam member - that sounds too limiting for late starters.

Nope, working as intended mate. Once you get over 265, blues will only drop -7 from your level and legendaries only decrypt at 265 max. The only way to get get over 265 is luminescent engrams (the milestone rewards), or exotics. This slowly pushes your level up and the blues continue to rise, you need to keep infusing the base power level (keep in mind and mods you have on inflate your power level, but the game doesnt take it into account when deciding your drops), for instance my power level is 288 but all my blues drop at 278.

Some milestones reset weekly (nightfall, raid, flashpoint, crucible, clan XP), and the clan engrams can drop higher gear too... otherwise yep, it's a slow grind after 265.

The luminous engrams look like this:

Keep me updated. I only had random crashes which could occur anytime...even after 4hrs of solid play.

I won't try mine yet because of raid - I know it would crash right before a raid milestone causing team to fail, or worse, team still completes section and I get no loot.

Level 20 is the max, after that it's all about the "power level".

Once you finished the campaign, and spoke to all the NPCs, they will bump you up to level 20 (if you are not 20 yet).

After that the fastest way to level up is public events, the blue gears dropped in the event will eventually take you to 265. 

After that it's a slow grind....

Yep some mission requires a minimum level, so if you are not there yet then just do public event to level up.

A little from column A and a little from column B. When I was lower level it was hard to trigger by myself. Now though it seems the word is out on how to trigger them as most people seem to want to do it when they join.

Reporting back on the PS4pro "CE crash" problem.

I played all night, 4.5 hours without a crash during gameplay. Tried out most activities. Relieved that the firmware seems to have fixed the issue.

When the servers shut down and my game returned to D2 start screen it did crash again, but I will take that over crashing during gameplay.

Good to hear it's improving, I was getting the odd crash here and there (probably 2 or 3 across the 10s of hours played).

Just a reminder that it's reset day, new flashpoint is on IO, don't forget to grab your treasure maps from Cayde, new nightfall is Exodus Crash with Attrition and Timewarp: Anomalies as the modifiers.

258 is probably low for a raid, and pushing it on nightfalls, but for all else it's fine. Public Events in particular are scaled so whether you're 290 or 100 it's not a huge difference

If you see anyone from the clan playing send them a message or do what Spaz does .................. just joins them and show them awesomeness  :P

Level doesn't matter for anything except nightfall and raid.

Sweet, I definitely will.  :)

Hopefully I can get to nightfall level soon too. I'm keen to see what it's like with the new timer system. I actually didn't mind D1 Y1 nightfalls where a wipe returned everyone to orbit.

So it looks like I can delete my second hunter... Bungo confirmed that grinding 2 characters is now irrelevant, you wont get the high drops from powerful milestone engrams (luminous) twice:

Quote
Bungie wants you to play Destiny 2 with three classes. Bungie does not want you to play Destiny 2 with three of the same class, with the other two being used as workhorse mules to generate infusion fuel to crank up the level of your main with a constant clown fiesta of gear switching.

This recent development has actually been confirmed by Bungie itself. Players noticed that their second and third alternate classes, usually meant to bolster their main Guardian of the same class, were receiving weirdly low power drops, even from Luminous Engrams, which are supposed to be weekly rewards that are well above your current level.

Players took to the forums to complain about this, but community manager Cosmo confirmed this is being done on purpose to prevent exactly what these players are trying to do:

“I spoke with the dev team about this. They said that secondary characters of the same class don't get the weekly power bonus. They didn't want to force players to have three of the same class to create the optimal way to increase their power level.”


We saw a lot of players doing this right when the game started, particularly those trying to gear up super high for the raid or hit 300 ASAP, but once you cross a certain threshold, you really just cannot do this anymore as the nerfed drops will come into play. So unless you really just love X class that much, you may be better off deleting them and trying a different class.

haha nah just got lucky with drops man , titan at 303 and warlock at 302.   If all ya power engrams keep giving you the same item type it kinda sux, then once you get to 300 odd its like the D1 level cap, waiting for that helmet drop or mark drop etc with 1 or 2 items keeping you off the cap, but at least there are more ways to hit the cap than just raid gear like D1/Y1.

There is a way around restriction but I haven't tested it yet with my 2nd titan but when I do I will post up some details, if I do it as it takes time and I would need to wait for reset.  Anyone that wants details PM me ;)

Just delete the character and re level as far as I know. Keep previous gear in the vault.
I struggle to get enough game time to level 1 character let alone a 2nd!

Honestly, I feel like Bungie has made me care less about my armour stats than I did in Destiny 1. I just infuse into my current armour and that's it! D1 I was constantly comparing stats to get the better deal.

Rookie question, but can you infuse multiple times into the same piece of armour?  I have some gauntlets I would like to keep, but I know I am going to get higher stuff so I have been holding off infusing them.

You can put as many higher items into lower items as you'd like.

On the infusion topic and this could probably be a noob question.

Is it worthwhile infusing before I hit 260? And if not should I just run with my highest level blues and scrap lower level purples for shards?

Unless you have a lot of shards to burn I wouldn't recommend infusing before 260, use blues up to 265 then start infusing

Awesome thanks for the advice. I definitely don't have many shards to spare, so I might burn a few low level legendaries and use my high blues.
Title: Re: Destiny 2
Post by: M-Rossi on September 23, 2017, 05:48:49 PM
Don't infuse below 260, and you can dismantle all legendaries up to that point, unless you have a certain style you like.
But as slayer said in d2 you almost don't care for your armour as you can just infuse anything else up

Check if your legendary armour have any +5 mods on them. They are useful to keep and infuse to bump your level a little higher to participate in nightfall and raid.

Just also keep in mind that your drop power levels will ignore all the "+5" mods you have - so always keep a 270 armour in inventory even if you have a 274 in same slot which has a +5 on it (that will only count as 269 when calculating drop levels).

Found it hard to understand, when you fill a spot, what then? Nothing seems to happen, am I suppose to get an invite or something?

Also someone it says x spots available but when you clicked in, it then says full or locked or approved, which you can do anything?
Very confusing.

Also tried LFG.net, no invite :(
Then try LFG.com which now want you to sign up an account?

Which one do you guys use now?

I feel like Datto nails it there. D1 had me with constant FOMO, I always felt I needed to get on and grind some more. D2.. I played.. twice last week, once for the raid and once to do the weekly reset (clan XP / flashpoint).. and other than completing the raid, I dont see any more point to what I'm doing.

I leveled my Titan last night in about 2hrs, with the help of Auldar, from level 15, power 153 to level 20 power 286... didn't really feel like an achievement. I might still run my warlock through for the trophy, but otherwise I can already feel the shine wearing off.

I can agree with that, but I also like that there isn't so much of a grind to level gear. Certainly by the final D1 expansion I was over it.

The raid being not as interesting and not as rewarding doesn't help.

Some of the grind in D1 felt like a chore, but I don't think the solution was to remove it all. Essentially they went for a streamlined experience with D2 but it feels a bit too simple and dumbed down for anyone that does like a bit of min-maxing. Even the subclasses you can't customised anymore, it's one tree or the other, completely removes being able to build different styles of characters.

I think they improved a lot in D2 over D1, but then they also removed a lot, and overall it leaves me feeling like I'm playing the same game, with less to do.

It's almost like they are slowly removing the rpg elements and moving to just a first person shooter which has a campaign which helps you get specific gear rather than generic load outs.

haha nice! reminds me of how I leveled my 'sneak' up in elder scrolls :troll:

The one and only time I bothered to complete that milestone I just ran around the crucible and danced at people as they shot me... the tactic backfired after the match turned into a dance off with no one shooting each other... so it in fact took longer to complete than it shouldve  :facepalm:

I just started on Titan :grave: Still got ages to go until I run out of stuff to do

Some weird glitch meant that when I was spawned I started at the normal starting point. Had to trek all the way across the map to trigger the game to start spawning enemies...or is that somehow the way the level was designed?

The very first time you come to Titan you should spawn on a swaying platform and Zavala talking to you as you make your way toward the command centre... if by spawned at the normal starting point you mean like you do in patrol.. then no.. thats is a glitch.

Still enough of a drip feed to keep people coming back, but there are always low's between content drops. After last night my hunter is 302 and Titan is 298, so other than the raid little else helps progression. However with the faction rally this week it at least opens up another grind for different (read: re-skinned) gear.

So apparently getting Raid and Trials weapons from Clan Engrams at only 10 PL was a bug, hotfix coming to rectify the issue.

https://www.bungie.net/en/News/Article/46359

Next Tuesday, October 3, we are deploying Hotfix 1.0.3.1. It contains some fixes for issues some players are experiencing. Here is a preview of some of the changes you can expect to see when you download the update next week.

Fixed an issue in which players could lose access to the Veteran’s Transmat Effect by deleting characters

Fixed an issue in which clan engrams would grant Trials of the Nine and raid rewards at only 10 Power

Fixed an issue in which progress for the Exotic Quest Step "His Highness's Seal" was not incrementing properly
Quest progress will still increment by 1, but the Quest Step now only requires 10 Seals to be collected

Fixed an issue in which raid milestones would not show for some players after the weekly reset (This didn’t affect any raid rewards)

Fixed issues in which players could enter a state where they are continuously killed or unable to resurrect if encounter complete and failure events occurred simultaneously
Title: Re: Destiny 2
Post by: euphoricx on September 29, 2017, 10:24:03 AM
Awesome.

It was a strange inconsistency, because the NF clan reward dropped as powerful gear, while the trial reward was 10.

Hold out as long as you can, they drop much higher than anything else, I did em straight away on my main hunter but waited on my alt and now have a 305 mida

Thanks for the advice and great job on your 305 mida. Doubt I'll be able to hang out that long  :D

Yeah Exotics are a good way to get the Power level up early, but remember to keep at least 1 of each until you're at or close to 305ish. As in, since you can do all the quests on all 3 possible characters (and Alts actually level faster than your main to catch up), it's possible to get a much higher exotic on an alt later.

I'm suspecting an increase in power coming anyway so I've got 1-2 of each exotic quest waiting for then ;)

It was better during week 1, but I am convinced they secretly nerfed the frequency of public event.

It’s a bit of touch and go, I believe it’s also due to people have no good reason to do it once they pass 265.

You will find more people at the beginning of reset when everyone is trying to get their flashpoint done.

Whilst it's not the best way to level past 265, public events are the easiest way to increase your base power level steadily. Basically do your milestones on reset to get the 'powerful gear', hope for some drops that pulls your level up, then farm pub events for blues to infuse other pieces, thats what I've done each week and I have 302 Hunter, 300 Titan and 298 Warlock

It's actually best to stagger your Powerful engrams. Hand one in until your Power goes up enough that Blues drop a bit higher. Wait until all your slots are at least as high as those blues by infusion, then hand in your next powerful reward and repeat. You get the most power out of your powerful engrams that way.

Haha yes, until that point. ;) I'm also there. My Titan is 304 because his arms slot is 304. Everything else is 305.

My Hunter has 304 boots and 305 everything else.

My Warlock has RNG issues with helmets! 305 Bond and Chest, 304 Gloves and Boots, 298 helmet ><

Hopefully this week will see me hit 305 on the Titan and Hunter and then I can start handing in the 1000+ Weapon parts I have when the vendors randomly go to 300 power for half an hour.

Once you're 305 the vendors will decrypt engrams at a set power that changes every 30 mins (could even be 15). It's somewhere between 295 and 300.

People are trying to crowdsource data to work out if there's a pattern to it or at least let you know where a vendor is selling 300 engrams on planets. Then you can start getting multiple sets up to 305.

THIS!!!

What tool decided that infusing needed to be that specific weapon type, rather than just any old kinetic for kinetic (or special? for speical, power for power)

I have a pulse rifle i really like... but can't infuse it up coz I only get HC's or Sub's at higher drops.

It's like year 1 all over trying to get raid drops...non-existent... forever 29.

Destiny Community Podcast (DCP, originally from Planet Destiny) had an interesting debate about the issues with current weapons rolls and how they can add more variety and long-term goals to the system.

At the moment, I'm sure most people are finding they've got most of the weapons in the game and you're never really striving to get that one weapon drop from a strike reward etc.

It's annoying how quickly I got over this game. This time in D1 lifecycle, I was still grinding to get that exotic or better rolls but this time around, most of my exotics have come from Xur, not exactly a great story to tell.

Hopefully, the DLC will bring me back as I already have the expansion pass but probably not enough to warrant subbing to PS+ again.
Title: Re: Destiny 2
Post by: spazmanaught on October 23, 2017, 10:37:16 AM
Yeah this feels more like a big expansion than a sequel. I have the first 2 DLC's but doubt I'll bother after that. I also have no interest in the plat trophy. In D1 I was all over it. This tells me it just hasn't grabbed me the same.

Whilst it was fun and exciting to have an exotic drop, the issue for me was actually that I could typically get 1 drop a night from public events, so it didnt take long to get all the ones I wanted. The dumbing down of the weapons system (re: stock rolls on each type) meant once you had a weapon there was no need to grind for that perfect roll so once the content ran out, instead of still having that desire to play to get those exotic drops or perfect rolls.. I already feel like I've "finished" the game. Sure, theres hard mode raid, but the reward system is so unrewarding that I feel like running the raid is a chore rather than fun.

Title: Re: Destiny 2
Post by: SmashedPumpkin on October 23, 2017, 11:27:47 AM
Tbh I don't think the issue is just with D2. The same lack of interest was there for at least the final major content drop in D1. I remember being over that after 2 weeks.

Actual player numbers of D2 have halved since launch, and overall sales number is less than D1 (so far).

Even just looking at my own friends list, on an average night (when there isnt a WpR raid on), I could count on 1 hand how many of my 100 friends list are in Destiny, this is down from a high of 40 in the first few weeks.

Well, the fact that even me, with minimum effort, has managed to get into the 290's. I have yet to complete a nightfall or raid (bloody racetrack) and yet I am much closer to the higher levels than my casual play style allowed me in D1. And the clan system is flawed as well, in that I can jump on once a week and pick up two or three high ranked engrams without doing anything. You should at least have to do your 5000 clan contribution.

Games in recent times move towards a simple reward system to keep interest but I prefer deeper mechanics.

https://www.reddit.com/r/DestinyTheGame/comments/787k7e/tip_for_arms_dealer_300_pl_strike_legend_of/


Sounds like it's best to use the same subclass element, get him down to a bit above 2/3s health and let him have it.

Other options:

Bring a Hunter with Orpheus Rigs - the amount of orbs and CC makes it easy.

Bring 3 rockets of the same damage type, wait until that type is about to tick over, start the lift going up to him and hammer him with rockets while he's standing on the ledge. Then finish him off with supers up top.

On December 5, along with the launch of Curse of Osiris and Season Two, we’ll be deploying an update to Destiny 2 that will deliver stunning gameplay with high dynamic range (HDR) lighting to these new consoles. You’ll also see adaptive 4K resolution on the PlayStation 4 Pro

Starting on November 17, the first Clarion Call for Destiny 2 will be live all weekend long. This will be an opportunity for you to earn double XP for everything you do with a fellow clan member in your fireteam.

Guided games will support the new Nightfall and Raid content you’ll find in Curse of Osiris (and you’ll learn more about that next week on our first livestream).

Agree with a lot of it, would've voted different on some, but a lot of it its a hard comparison to make given Destiny 1 had 3yrs to get it right, but then again, to throw away so much they got right by TTK and present us with D2 was a huge let down.

In keeping with the current theme I managed to get my 2nd char (warlock) well into the 290s yesterday with such little effort, I almost felt ashamed. Look out for one extremely filthy scrub of a lock getting around D2  ;D

Ok, so can someone who is still following D2 news confirm what I'm hearing that the "new raid content" for the DLC is just some new rooms in the Leviathan? if so... a new low.  :facepalm:

(Copy and paste from the summary)

Raid Lair announced – going back to Leviathan. New encounters, new loot and new places to explore. Does not require completion of previous raid. Brand new final boss for you to fight.

https://imgur.com/a/LSIRY
New Raid is called Leviathan, Eater of Worlds.
Recommended power for both the new raid and the old Leviathan raid is 300. Rewards will be scaled up.
Not as lengthy as the original Leviathan raid. It is very challenging and you will die a lot. There will also be a Prestige mode.
This raid will take you below the palace where the original raid occurred, in the belly of the beast.
Raid will be released shortly after the DLC launch (no exact timeline given).
A new raid lair will be added with Expansion II (also in Leviathan)

Sounds like the Leviathan is created as a raid go to place, with different encounter/theme/boss/mechanic.


Edit: the new raid does not sound like a rehash of the original

May not be 'rehashing' the same content but its only a side step away from it.

Given the DLC is about Osirus and Mercury etc. they couldn't made an amazing new raid location with the theme of the DLC, but instead for some reason (I'm guessing it'll be explained in the DLC story...?) we go back to the leviathan...

I was a huge defender on Destiny 1, but I am seriously struggling to even care about D2 anymore.. I already have the DLC pass so I guess I'll give it a go still, but just so meh about the whole game.

Post by: Leinad300 on November 16, 2017, 01:52:32 PM
I have a feeling the leviathan has a story of its own and will reveal itself as the raids/D2 goes on.

D2 has it’s good and bad, they made a few wrong design decisions IMO, but it still carries the essence of the game.

Yes it is disappointing that it did not pick up from D1 year 3 and instead it went backwards, but at least they have acknowledged it and hopefully we will start to see QoL improvements dropping in.

You gotta remember most of the community spent large amount of hours on D1, people are bound to have withdrawal symptoms regardless of how well D2 is made, at the end of the day it’s still Destiny, just that some bad design decisions sped up the withdrawal.

I will give it time, I still have faith in this game and still enjoy it.
Also happy to not spend ridiculous hour on D2, give me some time back IRL.

The Leviathan does kind of tell it's own story with the emperor etc. though in typically Destiny fashion, it's not quite explained clearly.

I think the massive steps backwards from D1(year3) to D2 were glaring in some cases and a huge misstep by bungie. I will say I enjoyed the story and was glad for the extra cut scenes, but overall coming from D1 (again year3 version) to D2, felt empty and unrewarding. I shouldn't be able to have a Warlock (2nd) and Titan (3rd) character over light level 300 without even doing the raid once on them.

I get D2 is a clean slate, but the steps backward and slow progress forward means it'll be months or years before D2 matches what D1 had, and thats an issue as it's been 2 months and I already feel burnt out and done with it.
Title: Re: Destiny 2
Post by: Leinad300 on November 16, 2017, 02:22:25 PM
I initially had the same concern on speed of improvement in D2 as well, but looking back inD1 timeline, d1 wasn’t really “improved” until TTK drops.

If we can get some meaningfully improvement in D2 in season 2 or first DLC, that would be way faster than what D1 was.

So for me it still comes down to the speed of withdrawal I mentioned in my previous post (due to the “same game”) and also D1 player has higher expectation (rightly so).

Bruce/Des and I was just talking about this when we were chilling in the hanger last night.
The main problem here is the reward system and also the “lack of reward”.

Apart from the token system, i think it’s wrong to reward players to max level without even playing end game contents.
The clan reward system also needs to be looked at, eg a clan member should not been rewarded with raid/good gear through clan package if they haven’t even completed the raid.

The hardcore players needs to have some unique gear recognition.

But anyway, Bungie has heard it loud and clear from the community. It will take time.
Hopefully the can get player base back before it’s too late.

Probably the key reasoning for my disillusion, I actually dont mind "grindy" games, infact I'd go as far as saying I quite enjoy them (Destiny 1, Diablo 3, Warframe, all some of my most played games that essentially come down to grinding the same content for better rewards), but the rewards need to feel.. well.. rewarding.

Scrap the whole damn token system from the raid for starters, it was ok in Kings Fall / WotM in D1 where you got the 'tokens' as an extra chance at loot when you have enough, but I have honestly never felt so let down in finishing a raid for the first time as I did with Leviathan and my net result was 1 auto rifle... of which I already got from a clan engram... and then turning my tokens in to get.. yep you guessed it.. another auto rifle (and thankfully a scout). I know RNG is a b*tch and all.. but to complete a full raid for the first time and literally have 1 drop.. yeah.. no thanks, not worth the effort.

Like I said, I've paid for the DLC (unfortunately), so I'll play it, hopefully I'll be pleasantly surprised.

They screwed up big time. They should have just gone the World of Warcraft route and released expansions to the base game. I understand the first Destiny was stuck between two generations which is probably why that method wasn't even a discussion but it would have been nice. They have no excuses to do it with D2 besides Activision and Bungie wanting millions for another disappointing experience.

I saw a fan image on Twitter the other day, it had all the planets from D2 added into the D1 map, that would've been great.

I'm sick of the argument "Destiny 1 was disappointing in Year 1 so why do you expect D2 to be great in Y1?" Well Timmy, let me tell you this is exactly why D2 should be great in Y1! How did they manage to REPEAT the same issues of D1 in a brand new instalment? They learnt so much over the past 3 years yet couldn't execute any of it properly in D2.

They know they fucked up because they've cancelled tomorrow's DLC stream to focus on the current issues at hand.

Hahaha yep, I agree with ye both.  For a game franchise with a 10 year 'plan', one hopes by year 5 they are not repeating year 2.

<rant>
Yep they needed to migrate to a new tech platform, as D1's was woefully hard to maintain and build on, but for me that isnt an excuse for D2's end-game state.   Like the Division, D2 for me was enjoyable and fun til end-game.  The raid was ok, but removing the ability to do simply things like go to orbit at checkpoints was a step backwards. 

Raids in D1 had a flow to them, almost story-esk, but the D2 raid for me feels more like a prison of elders thing, random order, no real story or flow to it.  So is it really a raid or a trial of encounters in a pseudo random order?   The D1 raids often required a good mix of classes and class abilities for specific sections or strats, the D2 raid really doesn't require any specific classes or abilities (well 6 striker titans is still OP ;) )

They fix a raid cheese that then introduces more glitches at Calus, same as VoG, but no simple way to reset a checkpoint in D2.  So when Calus stays immune, people stop seeing symbols in the shadow realm, random extra mobs spawning, shadow walls not appearing, etc etc we can not simply go to orbit and reset at Calus.  I know Bungie didn't want people to be able to checkpoint save across resets, but with the fantastic new loot system, people wouldn't be doing it anyway  :troll:

Things like daily stories & daily strikes (with high level rewards), double mod-slots in raid gear (make us want to get/wear the gear), being able to move my ship around in the loading screen (so we can ram Spaz's ship  :troll:), I could go on . . . functional social spaces with group up areas for PvE and PvP (guided stuff doesnt work well), a shader system not shaders ;),  bring back 6v6 in PvP (I wouldn't care if they simply ported the D1 maps over)

They did get some things right, simplified resource and currency systems.

@Ant glad to here you go the completion in. 

Yeah they needed to work out why in D1 players were willing to 'grind'; be it bounties, resources, strikes, raids, iron banana, trails, prison, dead ghosts, etc.   IMHO Gear and upgrading gear, oh and trophies/achievements.   If you wanted fate bringer, you ground for it, as there was no other weapon like it.  Or raid gear with specific perks you need (helms with heal on orb pick-up etc) for another raid or nightfall, or some stupid crux for a weapon I will never use.  Even I don't know why I did the grind for somethings  :facepalm: 

If the D2 loot is all so generic (no unique rolls etc), raid gear is nothing special, no strike specific gear, no BS trials adept weapons, no banana weapons with god rolls, exotic quests from bounties etc why bother.  I have my 3 go to weapons in D2 and I have had them since week 1, and I really dont care about armour due to the modding system being so limited in applicable perks.

The trophy system is a good indicator on how simplified D2 is compared to D1.  How many of us ground out flawless raid attempts for a D1 plat, or to help others get it ;)  Getting plat in D1 was a challenge and did require some effort.  In D2 is boils down to doing a prestige nightfall on the week with the right map/perks and unlocking all the sub-classes.

I don't think we'll see D2 change fundamentally until mid-2018 in a big May-June update that'll change the game as we know it. All these little updates releasing this month and next month will be nice but more needs to be worked on.

From the sounds of everyone's comments...they made this game for people like me, rather than build a game that offers alot for 100's of hours. Id love to be able to get so much PS time that was an issue for me

For clan members who are jumping back in, remember to pick up the new clan banner from Hawthorn, so we can get new clan rewards.

Byf could've made that video a lot shorter.. why is he still playing destiny 2? Because he's a content creator based solely on destiny and without he loses his revenue stream.

On a more serious note, highlighting the story as a reason to keep playing isn't exactly a great point, whilst I agree the story telling has improved, it's by no means a reason to continue playing after you complete it

I enjoyed jumping back in to it. It's been that long that I actually thought the sound fx was awesome.

The story is interesting, but I do agree that it's not really challenging and does seem quite repetitive.
I don't like knowing I can just blitz past entire sections with no need to face the enemy just to get through. I'd rather have to fight my way through it.

Only played for a few hours and I'm hoping I'm only 1/2 way through, but in reality I'm probably further along given the talk of this being rather short.

Only played Titan so far, but I already notice they've busted the shoulder charge when done mid-air. Either that or user view of it is broken. Feel like I just drop like a rock when i do it and don't propel forwards at all.

I'll play the story out... run through the strikes (hopefully more rewarding than they were) and some crucible... then see where it's at.
Wondering what the new raid aspect is, but given the lack of excitement so far from D2, I'm not holding my breath for anything awesome.

The shoulder charge was nerfed! It’s in the patch note, that’s one change I do not agree with, titan feels even slower than before.

Apart from that, the story was fun but short, and it was way too easy, could’ve made it harder to crank us the intensity. What a missed opportunity.

Will play through adventure tonight and after that will try out all the new changes.

Just a reminder, there’s another big QoL changes coming dec of 12th.

However, don’t expect too much, the flaw is quite fundamental and will take much longer to change.

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.

I didn't bother finishing the story last night, I think I am up to the final mission. Preferred going back to add to my 180+hours of rimworld.


The story reward legendary auto rifle is good.

Best QoL change for me is the vault organisation. Actually arranging weapons by type and grouping all the same weapon next to each other makes it so much easier to scrap duplicates. I don't know why this was not included at release as it is easy to implement.

Also, am I the only to think "numpties" everytime the voiceovers mention the Panoptes?

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

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

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.

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.

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.

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 didn't even look at any of the dawning stuff. In d1 we all were pumped to do it but this time round it's plain to see something is wrong.

I have the second DLC as part of my day 1 purchase and I reckon Bungie are banking on all the people who have this sticking around until then so they are going to milk it for all they can then do a Taken King type of release again. Sorry Bungie not this time you Derek Peanuts!

Even after they say this:
Quote
Eververse
We recognize that the scales are tipped too far towards Tess at the moment, and Eververse was never intended to be a substitute for end game content and rewards. So, we’ll be making three changes for upcoming Seasons:
We’re shifting the balance of new content in favor of activity rewards over Bright Engrams. This includes adding Ghosts, Sparrows, and ships (to date found only in Bright Engrams) to achievement reward pools.
We'll provide a gameplay path to earn Bright Engrams and all contained rewards (including Event Engrams).
We’ll give players more direct purchase options and make adjustments to Bright Engrams to allow players to get the items they want more often.

Spaz doesn't trust/believe them. They are just doing an EA because they have been called out.

Spaz will still play the game in utter disdain .............. and spend money  :P

This:
Quote
Strike Scoring + High Score Tracking
Strike Scoring is coming to Nightfall and replacing the current time limit mechanic. The scoring is similar to the Destiny 1 system but with adjustments to emphasize competitive execution of Strike objectives and support for player selectable score modifiers. In February, Nightfall High Scores will be exposed in-game via new emblems and will unlock rewards. We also have plans for Clan and Community High Scores in the works.

Anyone think this is because there is very little activity in nightfalls now?

Blahahahaha:
Quote
Exotic Repetition Reduction
This will prevent players from receiving the same Exotic twice in a row. You may still receive duplicates, just not consecutively.

Wasn't this already fixed?

Yeah this is one thing I don't get. How did things that worked in D1 just stop working or not get transferred across? My guess all along was the 'Eververse lean' didn't fit in with the D1 world so D2 had to not include them.

They clarified that new FR weapons are not part of engrams drop.  They come in the form of faction winner reward (the one you can purchase at the end of that faction won).

At the end of each event, the previous event weapon will become available as a FR engrams drop.

So it means, first event, no weapon drop, 2nd event, you have a chance of getting that 1 weapon from previous one.  And so on, at the last event (5th), there will be 4 previous event weapons available in the engrams drop.

For me, this effectively means don’t bother with FR until the last event before season ends.
(Couple with the lost sector chest cool down lock out).

They just can’t seem to get things right can they?

Edit: I will do the same thing, pledge to all three factions using my three characters, play enough on each to get one engram to register for the event. And that’s it, won’t bother.

The new changes went live last night introduces raid specific perks on raid gears, some of these perks greatly increases damage to bosses if done correctly.

So if you previously struggle on Calus or Argo dps, now is a good time to give it another go.

You can now dismantle 2 mines with a single cranium during phase 1 Argo.

Step 1: have the melee kill increase damage raid perk on

Step 2: drop the charged cranium and melee kill an add, then pick up the cranium again (don’t take too long though)

Step 3: fire away on the mine.

Step 4: crouch, move backward then dance.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Kinda grinding the story at the moment. It feels, meh, like I am just doing it because I paid for it!

What is it. Fool me once: shame on you; Fool me twice: shame on me; fool me three times: lets not go there.

At least I didn't buy TTK. I am over Destiny.

TTK was pretty good to be fair. But Plungie still haven't got D2 Vanilla in a good state. I reckon the pre-order numbers will tell the tale for them!

Changes do sound good, but I think I will wait for some non-shill reviews. Also sounded like no new campaigns for 12 months.

I watched the video of them talking about the new changes and how they are listening to people in this one.

"We're revamping weapons so they all drop with random perks" -- D1 had this and you fkn dropped it
"We're letting you put snipers/shotguns in primary/secondary slots!" -- D1 had this it's not new!!
"The weapons will now have a progression system so you gradually build them up" -- this was D1 at it's core with the unlock perks/levels! WTF Bungie!?

"New supers" -- yeah cool flashy stuff... but whoopdee doo!
"Biggest raid ever with more boss fights than any other raid, secrets & puzzles that unlock/change all the time" -- ok sounds interesting

"We've saved all the community feedback and putting those changes into this release" -- so you can charge us again! and virtually reimpliment all the D1 stuff everyone complained about you removing from the start...Bravo!

Well done Bungie.
*slow clap*


I'm out. Game has become such a bore to play.
The only good thing about the raid the other night was playing with you guys again. The game itself... pfft.

Pretty much what Mix said + no mention of ditching Eververse! This is the biggest community gripe, so it doesn't sound like they've given one shite about listening to the community!

Not only is Spaz out he's out with a swagger and a big FU to Plungie!

Well I'm enjoying it, might pay more. Hell I paid way more for Warframe and gave up after a few months..

I'll most likely get the $100 combo package as I love the world of Destiny and have been enjoying it since the latest update.

Spaz absolutely loves Destiny! Will rate as my #2 game behind fallout but the way Plungy and Flactivision have F%^KED up D2 there is no way Spaz is giving them any more coin. Auldar mentioning Warframe is a great example of how it should be done. Spaz admits the latest DLC has been a really good step in the right direction and Spaz will keep on playing it. Lucky the next release is a looooong way away  :)

Had my very first Escalation Protocol clear last night, all 7 waves. Did it twice. And it was epic.

The actions were great, with all the suppers going on at the same time from 7-9 people, my PS4 pro struggles with frame rate at times.

Didn’t get any weapons though (heard the smg and shorttie are best), but did get a hunter class item at the end.

For those looking for some full on actions that’s not as long as a raid, this is worth trying.

Nathan Fillion will not be returning to Destiny 2 to voice his final lines in the Forsaken expansion, instead voiced by Nolan North.

I read this earlier and thought about how strange it is to change voice actor before killing the character off anyway, especially when there wont be alot of lines to record. I have been pointing towards budget constraints in past posts.

He was seen to stop following Bungie around the time the trailer was released.

I suspect there were contract issues. Maybe he wanted more than they were willing to pay for his last lines.

Going to be very strange hearing a different actor. Not sure I'll buy it anyway though.

Black hammer is back guys, and is now an exotic - whisper of the worms!

The special mission is challenging and fun.
Brings back memory on many great jumping puzzle moments.

D2 is dead to me.
I only played a few missions in Expansion 2 before I let it go. I'd lost interest well before then, but gave it a chance.

I could go on, but I wont. That is all.

Same for Spaz. With Fortnite catching Spaz's attention it's been easy to let D2 go. And Spaz was never going to give them some more coin again.

With just about anything else remotely decent catching my attention D2 is long dead to me. I dont think I've ever been so disappointed in a game, and I was caught up in the no mans sky hype :troll:

Honestly dont know where bungie go from here, I can barely see that it would even be worth continuing with a Destiny 3 (which is the likely situation knowing Activision), they might be better off just continuing to add to D2 and trying to give it a renaissance a-la Warframe experienced over the past 18 months.
