I love Bungie. They have never let me down, and I really think that they are finally adding a different game to the market. Loved them when they done Halo and now that franchise is ruined by 343 Studios. They seem to want to support the game for 10 years, definitely not a current gen game!

Actually Bungie had this game in mind since Halo: ODST. There was a pamphlet Easter egg in the campaign.
http://www.egmnow.com/articles/news/halo-level-artist-comments-on-bungies-destiny-easter-egg-in-halo-odst/ (http://www.egmnow.com/articles/news/halo-level-artist-comments-on-bungies-destiny-easter-egg-in-halo-odst/)

Well, I'm sad to hear it is releasing on the Playstation 3 and not next generation. Sigh. It is releasing on Next Generation.

You know Bungie is serious about its first public steps in post-Halo life when Jason Jones – the studio co-founder and Halo mastermind who’s notoriously media-shy – is on hand to introduce the 360-person studio’s new always-online first-person shooter franchise for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and “future-generation technology” – a not-so-subtle nod to the Xbox 720 and PlayStation 4.

Because a lot of kids are not going to be able to talk their mum's into buying a PS4 for a couple of years.  Personally, I am hoping it looks similar to one of my PS3's (phat or new slim one) so I can just smuggle it in without it being noticed ;)

Well that's an estimate on what Activision will be spending on the whole shebang including Marketing, distribution etc. etc. The game itself will only cost around 140 Mill for development, which is still a hefty sum.

but In saying that throwing money at something does not always mean it will be good.

Not from a business perspective... there are a shitload more PS3's then 4's out there, and no-one has really pushed the 4 to show why it is better than a 3.  Mom and Pop are going to buy the much cheaper 3 for little Jimmy (27, unemployed and lives at home in the basement)

Bungie and Activision have a ten year plan for Destiny so there might be like 4 Destiny's. But I do hope it is not like Call Of Duty, being realised every year with no effort put into it.
Title: Re: Destiny

i believe only bungie is doing destiny, not multiple studio's like the CoD franchise

so there is likely to be a minimum 1 year gap between games, i am guessing Destiny 2 will be either a 2016 or 2017 release

It’s just been announced that Destiny’s beta will be available first on PlayStation consoles. It will go live in July 17. Although, if you can’t wait a month, you have another option.

This weekend, anyone who owns a PS4 console will get the chance to play the game’s early alpha.

Game play is very smooth and although it's Alpha I actually didn't run into any bugs.

Only thing I am not sure is why are all guns seems to be so weak, or maybe just that I am still low level and haven't been able to unlock those powerful guns yet.

Yeah I'm really liking this. Pretty much just a next-gen defiance but heaps better. It's a Alpha that is better than most released and patched games. It's already polished and I haven't had a bug/glitch yet. So if you liked/Like Defiance and MMO type games this is for you.

It is very promising Aro. I have some gameplay videos that I recorded. Loving it, the graphics are fantastic and the gameplay is very smooth. Going to be a great Co-Op game.

We never got our codes but by accident noticed that a dev was streaming on twitch and she was giving away codes, managed to get one and I am sharing it with Lyn (FYI couples!). The game runs amazing, like Slayer and Spaz mentioned, the way you can join friends is super easy and I am loving playing the bit of the campaign with Lyn and I am sure it will be an awesome game for clan nights.

If we get our codes I will share it with you Pat for sure.

I'm sooooo so so so excited about this, been looking forward to this game so much as I've mentioned probably too often already lol - am enjoying the first taste of it, if it wasn't for the kids I'd pull an allnighter. Gonna cry when the Alpha gets taken down haha. This could pass as the finished game, really blown away by how smooth it's running, the graphics are fantastic, it's definitely what I was hoping for.

I signed up for the Alpha within 1 minute of the email arriving in my inbox and cannot believe I still have not been sent a code. SO lucky Nes found this live stream he mentioned. I was starting to hate you all for getting codes so quickly >:( lol. Pat, hopefully you'll still get one, otherwise there's always July... :)

After a few more hours I'm super suppperrrrr excited for this. Had a couple hours teamed up with CaptainRainCoat. Joined each other no worries and voice chat in game was flawless ( yep you heard right P  ) as the others said this will be great in CO-OP clan playing but SP is just as good.

We tried the MP out and you can tell that Bungie aren't amateurs at it. We played a conquest type game 6 v 6 that was very fast and had a COD type feel. It's not a massive part of the game but it looks like you can only get certain upgrades by playing MP.

Spaz, tried to accept your invite the other night but Homer was faster. Next time :). I see you, BB and myself playing co-op together as we did in BL2 when everyone else had put it back on the shelf haha, but I hope this will be the new clan game, everyone playing it!!! :party:

Loving this so much as expected, half crazy of happiness that it's almost here after all this anticipation since - when? Surely more than a year by now!! Took leave for the first 2 days of the Beta :up:

What race / class is everyone going for? Race wise I always go for as dark/mysterious/alien/creepybutbeautiful as possible, so this time I think I'm gonna be an Exo (although I love my Awoken girl!). Class wise - again this would normally be the Warlock no question, but this time I'll run as Hunter.

PS4/Xbone won't get 60FPS on Destiny

Whilst this doesn't really annoy me as the Alpha was great and the game is shaping as being gold, I am getting real annoyed at games being held back because of last-gen. To ask me to buy a new console then release same spec games as what I've upgraded from is chatville express. Until next/current-gen only games start coming out we won't get what we paid for!

I agree and it shits me, with the release of the current gen hardware they should have placed last gen down the list but it appears they are more concerned with looking after those that are yet to upgrade.

If you have a top end PC, its often being held back by consoles if game comes out on both. Similar argument.

Not to anywhere the same extent as we are seeing now.  There were more titles ready at release and, from memory, more exclusives at the time.

I also think we are competing against a much larger established base this time, and the nature of console gaming has changed to have little differentiation from PC gaming (release day patches, constant updates and DLC).  The PS2 and, in the early days, the PS3 were not seen as an always attached device.

The barrier to development is a lot higher with each generation as well, as the platforms are more complex and the games are much bigger in content, graphics etc.  This leads to more reliance on established engines/platforms.  The current round of engines appears to be more tuned and established for existing gen, PC, XBox 360, PS3 than taking advantage of next gen.  Our PS4's are being treated like high end PS3's so they may tweak the graphics a little but basically the same game.  Very much like a high end PC compared to an everyday PC, more textures, higher resolution, smoother frame rate (maybe) but basically the same game.

Damn that turned into a rant.

the install base for previous generation is much higher than any other generation thanks to it having the longest life cycle so far
i believe when the xbox 360 was launched, support for the xbox was almost immediately stopped

sony has always supported their older consoles a little better, wasnt only a couple years ago that support for the PS2 finally ended

I just found out that when I preordered, I was not eligible for a beta code.

Any one know of a way to acquire one?

Very sad panda.

Check out the FAQ on their site: http://www.destinythegame.com/au/en/beta

Playstation Store digital preorders do not require a beta code or registration process.

That is how I like it.

Select: Cancel Pre-order


That means you'll be able to download the Beta, and also ensure that the preorder is cancelled.

The JB looks the cheapest K-Man with some pre-order bonus's. I think BB will get that and we will try to share the pass. Who knows if that will work?

It's a MMO type game. Without the massive for the mission parts. I was in a massive defense ' special event ' last night with about 40 players. The only way I can compare it is to Defiance. And I'm sure it copied something before it. For me the numbers are just right. I can play with a few friends or just do it myself.

After downloading and installing the BETA and upgrade, I go into the game and it starts installing / downloading game content. It steadily increases until 11% / 1.26GB, then does not move at all. My game has done this several times, first time left it downloading over night and for several more hours, and its stuck there. Deleted the beta, re downloaded and installed, and it started from the start, left over night again and stuck there again! I deleted it again, installed the 179mb beta and upgrade, went in game and it starts downloading game content with the Installing screen, this time I watched it progress until 1.26GB / 11% and then it sat there for an hour not moving.
The PS4 system is still fine, i can go out of the beta and back, but in game nothing happens and it will just sit at the Installing screen indefinitely.
Everytime is just stops downloading at 11%, 1.26GB, confirmed via my traffic monitor in my router, showing a consistent download of 900kb/s and then just dropping off to ~30kb which is the resting rate roughly. Several hours pass and nothing happens.
This is extremely frustrating and I hope it can be sorted out as I have been trying to play the Beta for 3 days now with no success! I cant find anyone else having this issue, and looks like i wont get to play the beta :(

Well Watch Dog's was more killed by it's own hype as no one got to play with it before it dropped.

and Titanfall, well it is a fun game, It just never evolved from the Beta, and was released unfinished, and is still pretty broken, Which is surprising coming from EA :troll:

Destiny is already getting better reviews as a Alpha/Beta than most other released games. Here are some good and bad reviews:

http://www.usgamer.net/articles/Destiny-Beta-Review-and-Impressions

Whilst it isn't anything new that's for sure it is so refreshing that it's not broken ( as yet ). And it is going to appeal to more than just the great FPS players. Yes shooting is required but being an awesome Kampa isn't a big requirement  :P

You know you will buy it, as far as a co-op goes it is great - I personally would not play it solo as the game works well with team mates.

Sgt if you didn't like defiance or borderlands I wouldn't expect you would be into Destiny. Apart from Lego games ;) this has been the most played game for me so far on the PS4 and I have limited time and it has not been released yet lol.

Post by: M-Rossi on July 24, 2014, 01:08:17 PM
I'm not sure I am sold on this one. I never played Defiance or Borderlands, but played FallOut 3, and loved Mass Effect series. Never enjoyed Halo, Crysis or KZ either. I prefer the rpg side over the fps of these sorts of games and Destiny feels like just running around shooting aliens. I am only a lvl 4 Warlock and will play a few more missions but I think I get the general feel for the game.

If there is a steady group from wpr playing it at the time I will probably still get it if there isnt any other game keeping my interest at the time, but at this stage I may cancel my preorder. This has a Sept release, but when Oct 7/9 comes, Shadow of Modor and Dragon Age will have my full attention!

There is a lot of upgrades, I bought a new ship but haven't bothered with the sparrow and won't really have time. I'm still unsure of longevity but I'll get at least 20 or 30 hours out of it.

For those interested in the permanent gift from Bungie you need to log in between 7am and 11am ( Sydney time ) tomorrow. I've done the conversion. Not sure if you have to do anything it just says log in and play. Unsure if it meant the entire 4 hours though.

I thought that as well Slayer but I found at least 3 areas not accessible and plenty of hidden areas. Also the Grimore cards give away what's going to be available. I do agree the scope seems to have gotten smaller.

6 player raids

Quote
A big part of this is raids. Though Bungie has been careful to distance itself from traditional MMO terminology such as instances and raids, the nomenclature is very much applicable to the upcoming “shared-world shooter.” Story quests are like instances for you and your fireteam, while raids – something Bungie hasn’t spoken much about until now – are one of Destiny’s most intriguing and mysterious elements. According to Smith, raids are, in fact, “one of the pillars of the game.”

Raids are “extremely crafted,” six-player, friends-only gauntlet runs that might best be described as gut-checks. Yes, they will be difficult, and they will absolutely require communication and cooperation. That’s why Bungie isn’t supporting matchmaking for them; the developers don’t want them to be played by disparate groups of strangers. But Smith is quick to point out that they’re not like Strikes – the instanced dungeon-like runs that might take a mere 20-60 minutes – but more like MMO raids in that you’re going to want to buckle up and get comfortable for a couple hours.

At least it's easy to add friends I guess and do it  :P . They are saying these things could be 4 -6 hours. Not great for us joining Nes and Lyn and Aro and Lara if they go that long. I have a feeling the may need to tweak them a bit once they see a lot of players missing out or ignoring them completely.

Yeah, 4-6 hours would be fine for us but you guys with kids would have stuff all chance without doing an alnighter.

Since the Beta, we’ve continued to tune and adjust the game... The way you earn experience has been adjusted up and down a bunch of times. Items have been added and removed. New features toggled. Although there’s no single monumental change, the sum of the tweaks leaves characters from the Beta Build in strange shape that would be confusing at best, broken at worst. Right now, you’re lamenting the loss of your starter gear, those pearls of mayhem of destruction that you carved from the wastes of Old Russia. Look beyond that horizon.

Yeah I was expecting a character wipe, and was looking forward to it.  I'm also wondering why people are getting so uppity about the wipe. I mean as you and they have said, it's a beta, they are there to test. Then once they fix and tweak you are left with, hopefully, a better experience, with a better character.

I never did understand why people would want to keep their Guardians and I hoped that Bungie had the good sense to start it fresh. I did throw some consumables and some higher level gear in the bank in case though.

Exactly Moose, I would have deleted all of my toons anyway if they kept them and started fresh.

I used the beta as a beta, tested each character to level 8, found the guardian I liked and ready to start day 1 at level 0.   Same as you AG, I would have deleted em all anyway.

I am totally expecting that and will be fine with it Ant but if they do keep the bank then I will have some spinmetal leaves, rifle parts and my transport. You can't use your transport until level 5 and 8 anyway but it is a bit faster. Either way, I don't care :)

While the MP on Destiny is OK we suffered some pretty bad LAG. They hid it well but a shotgun to the back of the head of a dude and he turns and puts 2 bullet kills in you is a pretty big give away!

I found that as well Spaz, I think it will be good if we can have private matches but that will be all, more of a sideshow than the main event. The Strikes and normal co-op will be where it's at.

And it looks like we will need to set the WpR group as our clan again after release...

Quote
Clan members will need to reaffirm their allegiance after September 9th. We’re not breaking up Clans – just severing their ties to the Beta. Once Destiny launches, your ranks will need to reset a Group as their Clan. Oaths you have taken will be taken again.

And there will be no trading in game....

Quote
Jackbandit  Is it going to be possible to trade items in the full game?

Only with your enemies. Trade your ammo for their loot. You know the best way to deliver ammo to a Cabal Centurian? You’ll figure it out, and it’s tons of fun.

As for swapping irons in the Tower? Nope. We want you to earn ‘em. You should be able to tell a badass story for every sweet jewel in your arsenal. Once you earn them, the various Guardians under your account will be able to trade them, but weapons belong to the players who acquire them through action and bravery.

Destiny is Gold. Discs are being pressed and packed into crates. Destiny is done, in some respects. Even now, so close to the end, it still feels like we’re just getting started.

http://www.bungie.net/en/News/News?aid=12054

When it is September 9th somewhere in the world, and you have access to your very own version of Destiny, it will be time for you to create a character that will keep you company for a good, long time. Retailers will stick to time-zones. Our servers won’t know the difference. Retailers will break street date. Our servers won’t.

I'm not sure mate, it might just be when it can be downloaded as Bungie are pretty clear that the servers won't be online until it is the 9th somewhere in the world which would be Monday evening for us.

I'll throw a little warning at that one raz, when you share digital and the PSN goes down only one machine can access any of the games, this was well and truly reinforced on Sunday.

Anyone who has access to the game can start playing as soon as the servers are up so Lara will be able to join Lyn and Nes if they have also bought it digital.

Exactly. Normally the time is not in our favour re gaming with the rest of you guys, but THIS time: :up: :party:
Sooo can't wait!!!!!! Torn between going to the midnight launch party, and giving it a miss to be actually online at midnight. Decisions, decisions. I need to have a hard copy, can't get myself to cancel it and only buy digital although it would be cheaper obviously (sharing). Apart from that I want the Ghost soooooooooooooo bad, but pay ridiculous amounts for it - hmmmmm... still can't believe I missed out after all that waiting *cryyy*.

You never order any games from DSE over here, all the games get sent from the warehouse the day before release irrespective of where the store is so you they generally won't have the game here for three days after release at the best.

Early Birds

1) preload Destiny
- at this point the listing for the game will say it is downloaded, but is not playable until 12pst

2.) go to settings, system, language and location and change your location to New Zealand
- your system will reboot

3.) go to settings, system, time zone and choose Auckland, Wellington UTC +12

4.) go back to the Destiny page
- it now says it unlocks at 12 NZST

Edit....this is for xbone....

Mine says 1 day 4 hours and 35 mins whether I have it set to Perth or Wellington time zone.

Yeah, gaming after midnight is not healthy for work the next day!  From my perspective, and having not played the beta, I was really impressed.  There didn't seem to be any lag, gameplay was fun... I could hit things with my sniper rifle from reasonable distances.  The story may not be very compelling, that would be my only concern.

I can't actually see any point of an alliance atm moment Jonno, it might show more if the members weren't in both, not sure.

I picked up a copy from dickies even though i haven't played the alpha or beta. I saw a few streams going early in the morning and it looked good enough for a purchase considering i have hardly any games and the ps4 is collecting dust since i bought it a few weeks ago.

What class is everyone starting off with. I saw on the streams there are three classes and not sure yet which one would suit some run and gun spray and pray action!

Has anyone had a look at the Factions yet? I'm torn between two of the three available ones (it's like making a real life choice here, you know? ;)).
So Dead Orbit are the ones that don't see any point in staying and fighting, they want to run and make a fresh start somewhere else. Not that one.
New Monarchy are the ones that are staying to defend the city. I like that one.
And Future War Cult are the ones that don't see any point in either as there's no hope anywhere, so all that can be done is goin' to war. Pretty depressing but what I like about them is that they believe in time travel and parallel universes.
I guess it's just about making a point. What do you's reckon?

And Future War Cult are the ones that don't see any point in either as there's no hope anywhere, so all that can be done is goin' to war. Pretty depressing but what I like about them is that they believe in time travel and parallel universes.
I guess it's just about making a point. What do you's reckon?

Yeah I'm swinging more towards Future War Cult

Dead Orbit Are just whiny little quitters haha

Yeah, still waiting for bungie to document the API.  It is up and working, but too time consuming to work it out by trial and error.  Once it is doco'd I will probably create a WpR specific sig... I have most of the code sitting around from KZ2 days.

Yep I'm more drawn to the FWC too although I do support the New Monarchy's view on things as well. BUT this is a game, so FWC it is. Bring on the war, I'm gonna go see Lakshmi-2 right now and sign my allegiance :D

Now THAT sucks Pat. They should make the time it takes to get rid of an item as long as it takes to delete a Ghost skin. You'll find better stuff soon though!!

Patrols are basically just a free roam in on the planets. there are small missions scattered about that give some XP, glimmer and vanguard rep. mostly go here shoot this, or go here scan this. also there are random public events that happen while on patrol. one off fights that anyone can join for a bit of rep and reward.

I might be on this evening, i'll shoot you a friend request and we can kill some alien scum :up:

Not wasted mate, you need to upgrade him by decrypting items but it is a lot faster if you buy from him, I just buy a heap of random stuff and destroy them if they are useless and glimmer is very easy to farm.

To get into the clan for the game. Certain trophies require you to complete a mission, etc with clan members.

And don't worry Barz, I'm only level 7 with one class. Have not even started any of the others yet

Well colour me pleasantly surprised, I was ready to dismiss this game but after several hours of game time I've taken a shine to it. It still feels a little repetitive in the missions like most games of this ilk nor is it particularly original. I'd describe it as a blend of Borderlands, Halo and Mass Effect that somehow works and is held together by some very satisfying gun play. Big bonus is that in a launch week we played for hours without a hiccup in connections or chat which is a miracle in itself.

I am not sure what makes my special Gozen - C sniper do such damage. I got it from the speaker at about lvl 4-5, its 79 attack & has been upgraded. Has arc damage and damage boost. I get 1700 damage with a headshot on knights, wizards etc. Or a couple hundred on body shots.
Is there a wiki to learn about weapons and buffs etc?

level advantages are disabled in nearly all pvp matches, so armor and weapon damage is normalized allowing level 5's to be on par with level 20's
you can tell which do this by the note 'level advantages disabled'

Book says its a common uncommon weapon. From what I can see you want a Saigon-LR4. But if it's putting out the damage you are saying I'd stick with it for a while! It's ability to shoot and pick up ammo is it's feature.

Feel a bit seedy today so going to jump on and do some patrols with my Titan now. Anyone else try remote play with the vita? I found it worked pretty well in patrols while i was lying in bed. The vita sticks aren't the best for aiming so i wouldnt want to try some hard missions with it...works perfect for exploring the map though ;)

Tried multiplayer for the first time.

Control aka Domination first up and its 4 v 6 on a Venus map ( first time i've seen venus). We get totally curb stomped and lose 20k to 3k.

Initial impression wasn't very good....died about 30 times in 5 minutes. Most of those were one hit kills.

That was pretty similar to my first and only attempt at MP. Might try it again, but its doubtful.

That was definitely a first for us, I've never seen us use that level of team work and planning under pressure, they were some great games.

Now that I've finished the story I've got to say I was really impressed, played for some 20+ hours in co-op without bugs or disconnects which is sadly amazing. Loved the game play, bit disappointed in the ending though. Now it's time to smash the MP.

Damien and I tried the moon strike last night and it was bloody hard, we failed to complete the mission.  We were on level 12.  Any tips how to defeat that big guy while so many other wizards chasing you?

Higher levels and gear is about all I can offer, Lara, Aro and I failed miserably when we were mid teens on the level front but when we went back at around 18 - 20 it was a lot more achievable.

Finding it repetitive.

Post by: M-Rossi on September 14, 2014, 09:44:30 AM
I joined with two random people on the moon strike. We all died and restarted it twice. We were all mid to low teen levels. One guy found a spot in the back right corner were he could hide and not get hit by anyone. Would pop out and shoot then get the big guys attention. Sliwly we beat the big guy and all the others disappeared once he died. It was very fustrating and extremely  hard. But got a rare gear item in the end!
Ill be on about 10.30 pm, can try the strike again.

Yeah Leinad300 and I were in there last night, we had him down to like 2-3% health and for some reason it kicked me and whole thing had to restart. Was so frustrating, so we gave up. I might give it another go soon.

They are crap for playing with your friends but they seem just right for the story and Strikes. Remember that The Crucible, Raids and Patrols are all 6 player.

3 person teams is crap.

The two best fps co-op games ever made (Borderlands and Left 4 dead) both have 4 player and it's weird this is only 3 player.

From what i've seen it does a good job on scaling the amount of enemies depending on how many in the team. Something that Warframe felt like it didn't do well at.

Thanks. The reason I am asking is that I have been saving up all the encrypted engrams and thinking to decrypt them at level 20 for better gears, or am I better off get them now?

The stuff you can buy directly from him is still always white or green for me, that has never changed, wonder if it will. Probably not, they want to make sure you work for the better gear.

I have gotten them from re doing strikes / missions etc you sometimes pick them up once you have defeated the 'Boss'. Also  you can get them from decrypting items. I've gotten a few from that. and in loot chests.

Oh no, you didn't make it!! Ok I say we'll manage next weekend! I have 9 Strange Coins now. Should be possible to get another 4 for that helmet (or whatever else he'll have for us next weekend).

I've never yet received a purple item either, never mind an exotic one. I did however achieve rank 2 with FWC so was able to get some purple boots (chose those as it gave me the biggest Light increase - hopefully Xur won't have Hunter boots on offer next week ahhhh lol) - the only purple thing I own.

Pat do you remember how you got that helmet? That must have been a one in a million situation, awesome - but yea, whyyy give you a Hunter helmet instead of a Warlock one. I have Warlock gauntlets with Light... Random.

Hell yea, I would have been too. Maybe because you had a Hunter created and ready for use. Are you sure you actually want to use the Hunter though just because of the helmet, or so you can swap classes when of advantage? I'm thinking of my Warlock but just can't let go of my Hunter yet <3

One of us would hide crouching behind the container up the top while the other one was shooting and dying, also right beside the container so could be revived from the hidden position, we'd swap when health was very low, when most enemies were gone run for our lives to get new ammo and jump back up the top. They followed us up there a few times but we managed to kill them off, only died a couple of times there.

Then with the gigantic robot spider thing you joined so you know how it went from there ;D

Sorry I have been a bit quiet, had the week off and still havent got a home PC connected to that interweb thingo :)

Yeah that weekly strike was a cracker.  I failed at it at level 22 with a few old KZ2 mates.   Managed to get through it yesterday, two of us at 24 and one at 20, and it was hell.    Only real rewards was 3 coins.   Coordinated Super use made a big different for the mesh section, raining orbs!

I am really liking the PvE side of things, even though some bits gets a bit grindy.  The PvP I am not sold on yet, playing with 5 other WpR members the other night was awesome, after a few 'warm-up' games we got on a bit of a roll and we won a round or two, lag obviously affected us in our warm-ups :)

I haven't spend much time grinding away at the Vanguard Strikes, so I dont have any legendary stuff I can use yet.

as far as getting bored goes. yes it's repetitive and grindy. But still I want to keep playing. it's not often I get hooked on a game like this, and usually it is only with hard core single player RPG's. I just really want to keep levelling, and am excited about the content that will be released.

yes bungie made a game that isn't as groundbreaking and original as they said it would be, but god damn if I'm not enjoying it.

You don't need to be level 20 Dan.

But I only have mostly green gears which surely are much much weaker than others?

Good, a headshot from a low level gun kills like a headshot from a high level does but you need to knock the shield off first, you'll do ok.

Had some great strike rounds with Ant & Leinad300 tonight. The strike playlist mission rewards were decent.

I finally got to level 20. So from here on the leveling system relies on light? Anyone care to explain?
It looks like i need to do bounties to get my Vanguard rank up for that armor.
And it mentioned something about Heroic  challenges i accidentally skipped before reading.

Basically any armour that is rare or better will now have a light number in its stats. The more light you have on, the higher your level goes.

cheers for the games last night Moose.   That weekly strike was damn tough but was good to knock it off early and get some coins for the weekend.   

If anyone is keen on the weekly strike, happy to help out.

Played a bit of Control with some old KZ2 mates before dinner, soooo many blade wielding hunters!   But did get to be on the receiving end of an enemy Titan killing our entire team of 6 with ye ol' hulk smash at a control point.

yeah it did get a bit brutal there.

still need to get a couple more coins to guarantee I can afford something from Xur. plus I need more vanguard marks and a little more rep, and then I can start looking at the legendary's that the armoury and vanguard mentor have for sale. Just sux that you are limited to 100 marks a week

i had a run of destiny vita remote play vita last night while i waited for mates on dota.. pretty good and playable. the controls are greatly setup and also the quality was very nice (though I will need to test further from my ps4 as I was on my desk and it was next to me lol).

i did notice that it seems i was getting a little bit of aim assist though.

i wouldn't do remote play for pvp though.

Effed my back at work yesty pretty bad so i had plenty of game time today. From 11 to 18 with the Hunter mostly solo and it was fairly smooth sailing.

Golded my first public event on the Moon iirc and that was good fun. Totally random how it popped up while i was traveling to a checkpoint in a story mission.

Unlocked sub classes and decided to start off the blade dancer and joined up with reiko and redid the first strike on earth and that went down fairly easily. Has anyone else started using a different sub class?

Also joined some tdm and was awarded with a my first blue piece of amour that was twice as good as the one i was using...wtf  :up:

No way, if you read the Destiny forums it is all :'( nerf the shotgun, it's OP or :'( nerf the arcblade, it's so OP or any other variance of "I really suck so I want the devs to ban the shit I can't handle :'( :'( :'(  I hate when devs pander to sooks who can't learn a different way of playing to counter 'OP' equipment or abilities.

Likewise mate, it swings back and forwards so fast and I'm not sure how it works since we are supposed to have aus servers but I get the feeling it is mainly p2p.

Probably a similar setup to things like ME3, uses network heartbeat/keep-alive calls to a server whilst running the game P2P.  As this is just about as variable.

I hit 20 today. Timed is right as it popped up as soon as i finished the last story mission solo which was a bit of a yawner. Matter of fact the whole story was a bit of a yawner in general. Some of the dialogue was cringe worthy. Some of the music however was brilliant.

After reading up on what it'll take to level up past 20 ( basically grind marks/rep or get lucky RNG drops ) i don't know i CBF honestly. I want to at least to all the strikes before i give up.

Thanks for the epic weekly strike run last night Aro & Lara, that was a lot of hard work until 2 of us realised we weren't running the right subclass. 

I officially hate hallowed wizardz!!

On a side topic, a group of my old PC mates in the US tried the raid last night, 2x level 28 and 4 x level 27.  They were at for it about 4 hours and apparently made it through to the last check point before that had to break.

Anti-turd Build:   Sunsinger, Full Armor (dont need agility with his glide, he doesnt get blink), Flame Shield, Radiance Dmg Reduction & Sticky Nades (tho not important but postmortem turd kill can spoil their run.)

You need flame shield running, and radiance active so its situational, not a permanent solution, but I have survived a knifing or two and a nova bomb.  Titans still smash it to bits.

Jumped into the Heroic Lvl 20 Story last night. Was cruising along and sudden Leinad300 (Daniel) is dancing next to me. Always good times when friends can just crash your game and dance  :troll:
We worked through a Venus story and it was quite hard. Got to the end part, cleared most of the waves of enemies then died on the last wave. It made us start from the start of that section again :( Luckly Clt-Alt-Del joined us and helped us beat it. We didnt get any rewards though :(

Played the strike playlist and had a couple of good runs with Daniel. The second one on mars was hard (I have only played story up to venus so far) yet we got through. Got some decent rewards with my first legendary rocket launcher and now I am level 21!
A quick patrol turned into an hour with a couple public events for gold tier and I now have 4 strange coins...

I don't think I can be bothered grinding through another 20 hours for another class. As it worked out to about an hour per level up to 21, but will take longer with the light / armor system beyond that.

"Destiny is Bungie's first game with Activision from its ten-year exclusive publishing deal with the Call of Duty company. Three additional titles in the series are rumored to be in development for release every second year after Destiny's debut in 2014. For the years in between, downloadable content is believed to be in the pipeline."

Source: http://www.gamespot.com/articles/bungie-destiny-will-have-very-long-life-cycle/1100-6414037/

I read somewhere in the bungie forums that Destiny would have a 10 year lifespan with continuous development of DLC etc.. With the above information, it will be interesting to see how the franchise evolves. The story doesn't interest me half as much as other's like the Mass Effect universe etc..
I personally have enjoyed it much more than originally anticipated, but I think its mainly from enjoying co-op and having nothing else to play atm.

I started the weekly strike lvl 22 and its gives me the moon one. Two people i was linked with left so i start on my own after sending a few invites out.
Moosewrangler came to my rescue and pretty much single handedly gets us up to the big boss in chains. We get him half way down and the wizards appear and kill us. I have a lvl 28 friend teejay joins us and this scenario of killing him half way and dieing on the wizards continues for several attempts for about an hour. Moose has to go and then another lvl 28 Darth-T joins us. Same thing for several more attempts and 45 odd mins. Teejay leaves and Darth and i change strategy. He camps the room and i camp the back right corner. After 25 mins of slowly chippibg his health he is down to 1/8 health. Leinad300  (Daniel) joins.  Wizards come and daniel dies after a min and i die.  Darth finishes the big dude and its over! I get 3 strange  coins as does Daniel! but not Darth as he did the strike already.
Easy coins Daniel lol.

Ant and I tried the weekly 22 while were both level 20 and that was a huge mistake  :grave:

Knocked off the 18 and 20 strikes in the playlist plus the daily 20 and they were intense, barely scraped though but it was good fun albieit no decent loot from it. Still yet to see a purple engram. I found a a ton of blue engrams in my travels today and the lucky last one turned into a blue helmet which just got me over to lvl 21.

Yeah those wizards are tough.   Attempted the level 26 Very Hard (Epic) Moon strike needed for the Exotic Handgun Bounty, and those hallowed wizards in wave 2 of 3 just smashed us to pieces.  (26 and 2 level 25s)

I need to start collected special & heavy weapons of all 3 types (fire, shock, void) as we go stuck with 'immune' shots against half the mobs and were running about waiting for grenades and supers to reset.

Side note:  some GG folks started the Raid last night, mix of levels 25 ~ 27.   They got the the last section apparently before they had to stop for sleep at 2am, they started round 8ish.   They said comms was key as there is a lot of puzzles and strategy involved so its not just bullet sponge mobs like strikes.

I havent kept up to speed with anything about this game, so i'm going in blind. I'll play it SP for a bit, then probably crack the shits and end up tethering through my phone for multiplayer later in the week when i get my head around it a little.

I've requested to join the clan and also downloaded the app, altho i dont have time to look through everything (including the 200+ posts that are unread in this thread lol)

for example, Wizard has kind of red glowing shield, does that mean that with a specific element weapon such as blue can deal more damage?

As slayer said, certain elements are resistant or immune on certain shields, while others do more damage.
I believe this is something that really starts coming into effect and plays a larger role more at the higher end of leveling, eg. 25 +
And i am not sure, but might be a big thing in the raids, so make sure to keep double ups of guns with different elements.

Also first legendary engram was found and it turned into some shards  :dry:

edit- It has taken plenty of patrols to get near the point where i can buy gear from the Vanguard but now the problem is the bounty board has refresh timers and have to wait hours for a reset. Why do they do this?????  :dry:

Yeah a poor design choice, farm everything you want cept for bounties.   

They should be individual and just restock when you hand em in.  Not to mention crucible bounties for modes that arent available!   There should be a dedicated Exotic bounty slot too, rather than them taking up a dedicated slot for what looks like weeks or months for me.

Yeah, they should refresh anytime you hand one in. Feels like an artificial limit imposed just to keep people coming back everyday. I bet they can patch this easily. Just give us more bounty slots would be enough i reckon cause some of them do take time ie killing 10 majors or the exotics.

I wanted to roll another character so i could try the Warlock and saw Raz starting off so we did a few missions. Seems like Patrol on earth dealt us a bit of a rough hand and sent us to a place you rarely get sent to on earth ( where you fight in the strike) we were only level 6 iirc and there was level 9 knights one shotting us constantly with their blue orb rpg nonsense. The mission was to stand on a rooftop while the percentage meter went up but the problem was the strike boss was actually there again and had line of sight on the rooftop and with that had no chance of completing the mission. Got lost and forgot how to get back to the start of the map where it is much easier so had to leave orbit and come back lol.

Finally got to try this last night.
Pretty sweet game. Still quite a few things to get my head around i think, but thanks heaps to Barnz for joining me and providing commentary on everything. Helped a lot :)
I'll go pick up my mic at some stage this week so i can chat back.

I ended the night by spending my "money" at the dude on the right hand side in the tower, buying those thingymebobs that they craft into armour/weapons. That was a massive waste of money :(
Doesnt seem like its worth buying anything at the moment (im lvl 7) as stuff that appears in my inventory (sometimes i have no idea how shit appeared there, i really need to be mindful to pay attention to the popup thingy on the right of the screen) is good enough to get through the early levels.

I tethered through my phone all night for internet connection and it didnt seem laggy at all, which was nice.

Is there a purpose to the Grimoire cards/points apart from making me log into their website and waste time clicking stuff?
Title: Re: Destiny

I went and finally bought a legendary helmet, then did the queen's bounties (managed 3 of them.)   Did 2 of the story mission, both simple ones on the Earth & Moon!, and got 2 copies of a queens helmet with the exact same specs as the one I just wasted marks on.  Thanks Bungie ;)  dismantled for material.

Hit rank 3 vanguard, and was surprised to get a free purple weapon for it.  Apparently you get a free weapon with each rank above 2.  It wasn't my gun of choice, but twas my 1st purple one so wont complain.

I have done the strike twice now but none of then counts. Wondering if it's because I wasn't the one the deliver the final blow.. Hmm

So last night playing this really reminded me of the fun of gaming in a clan.  I was running around doing some solo patrols to finish off some simple bounties when I got an invite from Masso.  Jump in and he asks me if I have anything useful against blue shields.  Pull out my shotty and help through the end stages of one of the Queen of Wrath missions with him.  I don't get anything as I hadn't finished the bounty yet, although doing that mission gave me what I needed to finish it.

He heads off to feed bubs (I think), and I decide to jump in with Homer who is working through the last couple of story missions.  Warlord joins us as well and we pretty much smash through the black garden.  Picked up some useful blue engrams during that mission.

Afterwards, decide it is time to head off to bed.  Homer departs and Mark sends me an invite.  We decide to do the Queen of Wrath mission, seen I have the bounty, and checked it in.  Quick invite to Warlord again who jumps in as well.  Finish the mission, pick up the Queens Helmet, go up to level 22, almost 23 and finally decide to call it a night.

None of this would have been anywhere near as much fun without the other people playing.

I don't mind these changes.

although the internet is kinda butt hurt. I've been seeing so many people raging about the loot cave. saying things like "How dare Bungie tell me how to play the game" "how else are we supposed to get to levels over 20 when nothing else gives good loot drops" etc etc...

really I've done the loot cave maybe 3 times for about half hour each time, and got jack of it. most of my legendary gear was from doing Crucible/Strikes getting my cryptarck rep up to 9 and buying it from the Vanguard.

I'm now at level 27 and attribute most of that to playing not farming.

The people who are honestly saying that they wont play the game anymore are quite baffling to me, oh no your super boring stand in a line shooting a hole in the wall grind is not available anymore. now you might have to do something that takes a bit more skill to level up.

I had to get a Fallen headshot bounty Queens done yesterday arvo so I went and stood above the Hive farming cave to shot the Fallen above and to the side of it.  I got 2 hate msgs from players telling me to piss off and let them farm.  So I sat my character in the cave while I did some laundry and cooked dinner, moving the controller every so often  :up:

Cheers Rossi for helping us on that strike. I'm glad you knew what to do as we would have got owned otherwise :)
Glad to help. I did the same weekly strike the night before. Had Daniel and momoAUS leave after several failed attempts, got teejay 27 to jump in,and he got his mate jHips 28, we struggled through it on the ground but made it. JHips said you can just sit up the top and take out the Nexus, and just heavey ammo the minotaur that appears behind.
It was quite easy. Those AUSG Squadron guys have really helped me out on the weekly strikes lol.

So last night playing this really reminded me of the fun of gaming in a clan. 
None of this would have been anywhere near as much fun without the other people playing.
I hear you, i have done a few patrols each night on solo and its kinda boring. But playing strikes or story with friends is fun.

RE legendary gear. I also have not farmed any areas, just general playing of strikes and bounties to get the vanguard marks / rep to buy gear. I have more marks to get some purple boots but might hold off to see if I get anything from tonights Queens story. Might save up for the 150 marks for a legendary Hand Cannon!
I have the exotic weapon bounty but havent killed the 500 hive yet, but I dont think i will be able to get the crucible part :(

I will be on tonight doing the Queen's Story, then Strike Playlist lvl 24. If anyone is around we can fireteam up!

Xur is out near dead orbit, you will see a stair there, go down and towards the end.

He is selling helmets (13 coins) and auto riffle (16 coins IIRC).

The exotic auto rifle was 23 strange coins wasnt it?

I can buy an exotic helmet from him but i have a legendary helmet, & legendary chiest piece (rare gaunlets and boots). Last week he had gaunlets, i am considering waiting until next week and hoping he has boots.

Post by: StoneColdHomer on September 27, 2014, 12:42:10 PM
The 1.0.2 patch will go live next week, and includes several changes to the Cryptarch and Engram experience. These changes guarantee that Engrams will always decode into items at or above the quality of an engram.

Only Engrams that drop after 1.0.2 are subject to this change.

Cryptarch Changes
Cayde-6 took the Cryptarch aside and showed him a sack of doorknobs. He decoded that mystery pretty quickly.
Legendary Engrams will always produce Legendary or better quality items, including Materials or Exotics
Rare Engrams will always produce Rare or better quality items
Rare engrams will have an increased chance to produce Legendary quality items

Activity Changes
Daily Heroics, Weekly Heroics, and Vanguard: Tiger Playlist activities will include Rare and Legendary Engrams in addition to their existing rewards
Ascendant materials have been promoted to Legendary to closer associate them with the gear they are used to upgrade
Legendary Engram items that exist in your inventory will be demoted to Rare quality when the patch goes live, so decode them while you can. But let’s be honest — even if you don’t, we all know they were blues already.

As far as I can gather they will be implemented in future DLC. in the game you can see an extra slot in the guardian menu when you hover over your sub class as well.
but with everything that has happened/been happening with this game who knows.

Thanks for the raid invite last night. Was very tough, but lots of fun.
Keen to get involved more and hopefully get a finish on it :D

On another note, my youngest (4yr old) has been keen to watch me play and I often let him control with some help and sometimes let him run about on patrol. Today I left him doing missions on Earth patrol (nice easy XP), come back and he's in the Tower and blown my 20k glimmer on green gear from the Hunter vanguard (I'm a Titan) and various useless junk from other vendors. Haha.

Indeed. Though I'd hope the PSN password requirement would put a stop to him in that one.

He told me he wanted some different stuff and told me "I got some really cool stuff dad, from that man over there!"

The loss of glimmer is ok i guess, easy enought to get. Just lucky he didnt visit Xur in the same room and blow my strange coins.

Nice Spaz!

Last night was the best loot night I have had on Destiny.  From the raid I got about 12 Asc Shards, Leg Sniper, Leg RPG, Leg Boots, a Raid Shader and a Raid Class Emblem.  Then I got my 1st exotic 'drop' during the Nightfall Strike last night, 'Ice Breaker' which is a nice solar sniper rifle, as well as 2 Leg Engrams.   A mate I was playing with literally got about 15 Shards and that was it, no gear out of a Raid and a Nightfall!! 

The game never gave me much before that, everything was bought or ground out (Queens and Exotic Bounties.) 

If anyone wants a hand with the Weekly Heroic or Nightfall, send me a msg or an invite this evening.   There's a few cheap tricks to that strike we figured out last night after a few failed attempts ;)

I might be willing to try the weekly night fall but maybe next week when i can upgrade some armor. I tend to die alot, its a habbit with fps, i normally sit in the top few with the most kills but also have the most deaths in the server  :troll:

Nice work on the standard weekly strike (at lvl 28) Daniel & James. Always fun to have a strong strike team :)

I have the same problem, learning not to run into things FPS style has been my major problem, that and falling off places I shouldn't ;)

If ya made it through the weekly heroic on level 28, the nightfall is actually a little easier :)  Has Arc, Void & Solar burn on which makes snipers ans fusions a whole lota fun.   So hit me up if your keen.

Hopefully it starts raining purple weapons for you now mate.

That nightfall was good fun, abuse of gaming mechanics and a good hiding spot made for some fun times.   Thanks to Lara for staying on that final hilltop, staying there was a game saver.

If we don't get numbers for a raid attempt tonight, I am happy to give the level 28 weekly heroic strike a go, 9 coins plus the exp bonus from nightfall makes that more than worthwhile ;)

I bought the crucible Leg assault rifle last night before you two joined, wish I has bought the arc HMG (zombie one) instead now, would have made those damn Captains easier at the end!

Easy way to get through Strikes
http://au.ign.com/videos/2014/10/08/destiny-easily-beat-this-weeks-nightfall-strike-on-venus

Daniel, James & i came across this ourselves the other night.
A comment from the video says "every strike has a safe zone. Place your weakest player as fireteam leader and hide there, let the others do the work, if they die, exit to orbit then re join fireteam; you will rejoin with ammo and continue until nightfall dtrike complete!"
Title: Re: Destiny
Post by: Jykel on October 09, 2014, 12:37:08 PM
That would be the spot we used, and the game mechanic we abused (leaving to orbit.)  Lara and I could shoot the Priest/Boss from under the platform and rarely got hit. 

Be warned, sometime a revive puts you outside the sneaky spot ;)

I have 4 legendary primary guns (one of each type) and 1 heavy rocket launcher (also had another couple of double ups of primary I dismantled).
The only one I bought was a Legendary Hand Cannon from the Vanguard Quartermaster, the rest came from random drops (one from a rare engram but the rest from legendary engrams) all pre patch.

Spaz and I did the weekly heroic strike last night. Just the two of us. I ran out of ammo and hid under the platform and sat out of harms way as it was a cluster **** going on. Then bam - all my ammo refilled magically including my RPG! Winning! The fired off my four RPGs from below the platform to end the strike :)

Wish I knew about that before I bought ammo resupply packs! I did not have any boosts on or anything like that.
Title: Re: Destiny
Post by: Jykel on October 10, 2014, 01:39:04 PM
We (Pat, Lara n I) had the same thing happen doing the weekly heroic. 

Given no burn effects it was taking a long time to whittle the priest down from under the platform, silly servitors getting in the way, then all of a sudden we started getting full ammo refills.    I wasn't game to fire my rpg from under there, knowing my luck :)

The ammo refill isn't an exploit. Apparently bungie realize that 1 out you will get smoked so they give you the ammo refill after a certain time of not moving. Makes sense.

Title: Re: Destiny
Post by: Pat on October 10, 2014, 02:24:32 PM
Certainly not an exploit since you can get killed in there and that was the first I knew of the ammo God. Even quitting back to orbit is not an exploit since it spawns you back where you died surrounded by kick arse enemies.
Title: Re: Destiny
Post by: M-Rossi on October 10, 2014, 03:02:22 PM
What sort of time frame do you need to sit still before your ammo is refilled?
Does it only happen when all of your ammo is out (eg primary, special, heavy) ?

I played the Nightfall with Slayer and Warlord last night, we all died before the priest came out, next time I hid up near the spawn while they did most of the work with a little orbit time  :troll: .

I was unaware that they had both done the Nightfall already :(  I got a exotic helmet (but i already have exotic gloves...) while they got nothing!
Come on bungie, give them some strange coins, shards or something for repeating such a hard strike...
Title: Re: Destiny
Post by: Ant on October 10, 2014, 03:25:04 PM
Not sure how long it takes but it sure does come in useful.  Also, BB.. I would still buy the refills, much safer option that way.

Giving iron banner a miss, good time to work on my 2nd character and avoid that lag frustration.
yeah not to big on the crusible or the iron banner actually :/

Big fail for psn being down sat night without any announcement.

I managed to do the daily heroic strike on lvl 28 on my own all thanks to the Ice breaker sniper rifle. Barely used my primary at all. I hope the Ice Breaker unlocks a short range scope.

its pretty easy, did it with homer and barnzi last night.

u suggest doing the middle level if you can't do the highest level.

we could of probably did ok if we did the middle level but homer was only level 22.

ill probably do the nightfall strike today/tonight.

Thanks for the run yesterday Pat with my titan, getting Monte to drop as a reward was awesome, best assault rifle I have used in game and my 1st exotic to drop in game (purchased the rest.)   And the shards I got were enough for my titan to get to level 28.

Sorry for the typo Barnz. Even at lvl 28 one snipe can kill me if my health isnt full. The heroic stuff is great, but after doing them, the normal tiger strike at lvl 24 is almost boring and too easy. They really need a lvl 26 & 28 strike playlist.

Thanks for that tracker, ill definitely use that next time.

No worries raz, don't try to make too much sense of the story as I don't think it was a driving focus for the game.

They will have a golden border once they are fully upgraded and there is a green progress bar prior to that so you can see how far you have to go.

Hopefully it makes more sense when I play through the story and take it slower . I just unlocked Venus today but might go back and find all the golden chests, and maybe try the strike on earth .

Also just read that engrams level with you...is it not worth decoding them at low levels and just save for later ?

The game has a weird setup and will take a bit of time to know what it all means. You have Bounties/Rep/Marks/Glimmer/Materials/ Faction Rep/ XP Boosters and all other kinds of bullshit to work out but it's not that bad when you play a bit more.

I would just stick to the Story as it's the fastest way to level up to 20. Use all your engrams because every time you rank the Cryptarch you'll get a legendary engram iirc and you might actually get something useful post patch from that.

If you're bored you can hit up the Bounty board and do some patrols. Eventually after some serious time put in you can eventually just buy legendary gear. Also by doing patrols you'll pick up the Materials need to level up weapons/Armour.

The Nexus on Venus is the one to farm if you need one, it takes between 9 and 15 minutes depending on how times you stop to shoot things and how good your weapons are at the end. I was only shooting what I had to.

Also levelled my Hunter to 20 so I can now wear my Exotic helm, level 21 just by putting it on.

Thanks again for last night Pat & Lara

After you guys left, i kept on going and finished Venus. Then i decided to finish up a couple bounties before bed.
Then i found this great spot to 'finish a tough bounty' that also happened to be great for XP and green drops.
Then it was 2:45am

But i finished my bounties and got a tonne of drops (green, so still newbie, but better then i had). Now i'm 17 all of a sudden.

Bounties are great XP i found, and a very easy way to level up items.

Also quick question, every now and then when talking to a random vendor i must have a random item from a mission in my inventory, which pops up to exchange for glimmer (usually 200 iirc).
i dont really pay much attention obviously, so cant remember what these random items are, but should i skip past screens like that and collect these things for other purposes?

at this stage those things are only there for the glimmer.

from the Fallen you get House banners, the Hive give Silken Codex, The Cabal give Network Keys, and the Vex drop Axiomatic Beads.

Is this the 'right'  thing to do? I've switched to FWC because of their intellect and displine armour since strength seems to be for my melee attack and I generally will try to avoid being up close.
Levelling the store dude will probably my take me forever but that is a side point.  To buy stuff are the crucible marks he takes only available from pvp?
As I'm playing from tethered phone pvp doesn't sound too appealing.

I'm wondering if I should just stick with the vanguard dudes.

I'm not sure if each faction makes a big difference? I just recently swapped to New World only because I have passed lvl 4 for vanguard and don't see much more reasons to stick with them. I'd be interested to know if they do have different stuff to suit.
Title: Re: Destiny
Post by: MooseWrangler on October 25, 2014, 06:27:43 PM
The armour that each faction has on offer have different stat ratings.

Dead Orbit: DIS/STR - melee and grenades.

Future War Cult: INT/DIS - super and grenades

New monarchy: INT/STR - super and melee

So it comes down to play style/ character build when picking them.

Hope this helps Raz :)   My Titan went Dead Orbit as soon as I was level 20, as I wanted the armor.  All my vanguard & crucible rep/exp then wen into DO, so I ranked up DO pretty quick but . . I could only spend crucible marks with the Faction, not vanguard marks.

So after a week or, I noticed I had over 200 vanguard marks sitting there I couldn't spend, and I had to play PvP to get the crucible marks for the DO armor I wanted, as yep they wont take your hard earned PvE marks.  I didn't think it through very well ;)

Once I hit DO rank 3, I went stopped using the DO emblem so I could get my vanguard rank up and spend the stockpile of Marks.

I really don't like that factions are basically for PvP players, they should have a PvE alternative.

My advice is to at least get your vanguard rank to 2 before switching, so you can buy armor, to wear or to scrap for parts.

Lots of farming yesterday, I finally got up my hunter up to level 27.  I have a few more items I can upgrade after I do a spirit bloom run before shards become an issue.

Got my warlock up to level 9 or 10 as well and must say, at the moment I am really enjoying that class.  Although, I do like when my hunter becomes invisible :)

As I'm playing from tethered phone pvp doesn't sound too appealing.

I'm wondering if I should just stick with the vanguard dudes.

/confused

Hope this helps Raz :)   My Titan went Dead Orbit as soon as I was level 20, as I wanted the armor.  All my vanguard & crucible rep/exp then wen into DO, so I ranked up DO pretty quick but . . I could only spend crucible marks with the Faction, not vanguard marks.

So after a week or, I noticed I had over 200 vanguard marks sitting there I couldn't spend, and I had to play PvP to get the crucible marks for the DO armor I wanted, as yep they wont take your hard earned PvE marks.  I didn't think it through very well ;)

Once I hit DO rank 3, I went stopped using the DO emblem so I could get my vanguard rank up and spend the stockpile of Marks.

I really don't like that factions are basically for PvP players, they should have a PvE alternative.

My advice is to at least get your vanguard rank to 2 before switching, so you can buy armor, to wear or to scrap for parts. 

Thanks. Yeh, i think i will switch back to Vanguard - at least for the time being and rank him up a bit to buy his stuff.
At least playing random Strikes will also give the chance of something decent dropping during the mission too, on top of earning Marks.
I played 1 Crucible game the other day from the thing on the left side of the destination screen that has been blinking at me for ages, and although i did ok within the team, and my team won, i only got 3 Marks. wtf

I hadn't played for over a week and saw Raz in there so hoped on for a bit. Got my Vanguard to level 3 ( that wasn't tedious at all by the way ) I was rewarded with a Legendary Pulse Rifle so that was cool. Not a huge fan of Pulse Rifle's but i'll give it a go and level it up.

Quick Q. So if i do the Weekly i can get a max of 9 coins correct per caracter? I only have a few coins at the moment and would like to have a second chance of buying something from Mr Xur.

Also need a bunch of rep to buy weapons from the Vanguard and the best/fastest way is the level 24 tiger strikes and Daily's?

Yeah the missions that guarantee the coins etc are the best way. Then it's just random pick ups. I've got 44 coins and 48 motes to use. With what I should collect this week at least I will be able to buy a few things from that weirdo this week.

Patrols and strikes for the rep/marks. Grind it baby  :P

Also make sure you find a public event each day. You get a good reward each day in the tower. Can be anything though.

Just for clarity, how do you get Vanguard Marks outside of Strike playlists? I went to hop on to the playlists after Pat/Lara logged for the night so i could test a new gun, and was quickly reminded about matchmaking and randoms, so i went on a patrol instead.

I think you get em for Weekly Heroic, and Nightfall (not 100% sure), and you get em from Public Events.

The crucible 'experience' is very random as well Raz, given it P2P, one round might be awesome and responsive, the next one a lag fest.  When its good, its good, when it bad is rage-worthy.

Pretty sure the weekly strikes give Marks n Rep, and Public Events give Marks.

And yeah the crucible 'experience' is random as given its backed by P2P mechanics.   Some rounds are great and responsive, next one a full clip wont drop someone standing next to you.   Such a shame they didn't go for dedicated servers for the P2P side of things.

Mostly. I've played a few strikes where it's obvious someone is chasing a "complete a strike without dying" bounty and blatantly hides somewhere or stays behind well outside the current main area so they can achieve it. And these people are 27+
They should just go play devil's lair on lvl 8 for a fast easy bounty and get off the higher playlists :D

Dark Below DLC dated and detailed. December 9th.
http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2014-10-29-destiny-the-dark-below-expansion-content-revealed

The Dark Below adds new armour, weapons and gear to the game, as well as new legendary and exotic quality items.

The light level cap is raised from 30 to 32, and the new gear will facilitate progression beyond 30.

A new set of story content will be run through a new vendor character, called Eris, who takes up residence in the Tower social hub. She sends players on a mission against the Hive alien race in a bid to stop big bad boss Crota from taking over the Solar System.

One new strike will be added for all players, called The Will of Crota. As part of Sony's DLC exclusivity deal with Activision, PlayStation players get an extra strike called The Undying Mind, set in the Black Garden, as well as a new exotic item.

The six-player raid is called Crota's End, and is set in the Hellmouth. As the existing raid, Vault of Glass, unlocked some time after the release of Destiny, so will players have to wait for Crota's End to unlock soon after the release of The Dark Below.


Elsewhere, Bungie will increase the number of bounty slots available to characters to 10 from the current five.

I will still be playing destiny until Nov 13 when Assassin's creed & PES15 comes out (both Day1 purchases for me), then Far Cry4 nov 18, then Dragon Age nov 21 following on when I can finish the previous title on my list  :troll:
I probably will only get on once a week for the nightfall & maybe Raid if something is organised.

So we need to change Immimix - mix - as we used to call him name to 'Shardman'.

Spaz, Shardman and I completed the nightfall and what did we receive:

BB - an exotic helmet I already have - and that was all :(
Spaz - 10 Ascendant energy and a lovely blue engram
Shardman - shard, shard, shard, shard, shard, shard, shard, shard, shard, shard, shard, shard - yep that is right - 12 shards! Oh and a purple engram just to sweeten the deal. Which I think gave him something exotic which he then broke down for more shards.

And then.....we did the daily.

Pretty easy going after the nightfall.

BB - 2 energy and a blue engram
Spaz - 2 energy and a blue engram
Shardman - 2 shards and blue engram.

Too funny. I think destiny hates the lower level players. I could level up to 28 with 14 shards but no it goes to Shardman who is level 29. Made us laugh heavily.

Was good fun last night - tip of the day - play with Shardman at your own risk.

Nah only joking. Thanks for the games last night Mix. Wouldn't have gotten thru the nightfall without you! Looking forward to attempting the raid tonight.

Nightfall gave me 7 strange coins, 10 coins to digi and 12 shards to Warlord.

Thanks for the weekly runs last night Dan & Lara, we did a much better job than my 2nd run with some old KZ2 mates, where we had to go back to orbit once ;)

Had a fun night, 2 x nightfall, 2 x weekly, 2 x daily and managed a quick Raid with the old KZ2 crew.  We got the raid done in 42 mins, and almost got the no deaths trophy (stupid jumping puzzle :) ), no level 30's either, just all 29's.   

Got my 7th Praedyth's Revenge, prism elblem and sh#tterwhite, and again no raid armour.  Hopefully better luck tonight.

Then I get to use Xur fit the first time. Buy engram, get other class item ( I was expecting that), scrap. Buy chest piece, but think I like my purple one better.

Just a quick message let you'll know I might not be in Destiny much until the DLC, apart from Raids :)

An old ME3 co-op mate asked me what I was hoping to get from the nightfall, while helping him last night, well basically nothing really ;)  All I need is Raid Armour, and thats just down to luck in Raids.  What did I get, 5 strange coins!!

I have all my go-to weapons maxed, all my 3 characters capped at 29 waiting for the 'last piece', shards in the bank waiting, etc.

So I will be hitting up a bit of KZ:SF or BF4 while waiting for DA:I and the Destiny DLC.

As soon as you spawn on Venus head left and when you hit the first area do the loop. I can get 100 blooms in about 20 mins there ( as long as the randoms don't get in the way   >:( ). Hit me up if you are looking to do it there as I run around ranking my weapons in that area as well.

I have 16 NM completes but is doesn't list the bloody 12 Praedyths Revenges I keep getting :)  Would be nice to see a list of overall rewards I have from 18 Raids, soo many sh#tterwipes ;)

Yeah, I was watching the parties form on my Vita... figured remote play on the Raid probably wasn't a good idea and I was wrecked anyway.  Crashed early.  Moving boats around at midnight on Monday caught up with me I think.

14 forum members on my friends list tonight and all in raids, impressive.

Bungie must have done something right ;)  the game we luv to hate to luv  :o

Tested a bunch of weapons yesterday post-patch. 

Bad Juju - much much improved.  No more green mist when you ADS, much bigger clip, and sounds cool.  I managed a good chunk of a nightfall without having to reload, so maybe a new oracle killer in raids.

Thorn - reload is soo much faster and clip size of 9 is great.  The lingering damage is now more useful, stops shield regen on ultras etc.  When used by a hunter with the stability and reload stack perks, its a beast!  a good supplicant killer now too, one shot kills at my level.

Monte Carlo - OMG is bloody awesome now they fixed the stability, feels just like the original BF4 m-tar, just a head shot machine.  My titans go to primary if I dont need a burn effect.

Truth - well only real difference, 3 in the clip.

Super Much Better Advice - well this is a beast now it has some stability, so you can fire longer bursts.  Used it for oracle killing in HM, not maxed for dmg yet either, and I was able to solo the oracles no probs, never needing to reload due to its missed shot perk.

Pocket Infinity - found no real difference.

P & T - new scope is handy if you prefer a mid scope over its super long one.

Ice Breaker - stuff looks different when you kill em  ???

Plan C - feels a lot snappier, still a good gun.

Le Regime - still great, used it with Final Act (Fire Fusion) against Atheon in HM (fusion for oracles once SGA runs outa ammo) and Regime is main dmg weapon against atheon over 1k crits before glass half full, and tap the trigger to fire faster zoomed in, dont hold it down ;)

Hard Light / Red Death / Mida Multi / Invective - own em but dont use em, so cant give any feedback.

Hawkmoon / Vex Mytho - dont own em ;)

All in all I like the changes.

Indeed. Next thing they need is a Crota's sword crucible match.
Either everyone gets a sword and it's all out war... or there is a sword in the middle and it's King of the Hill style sword against all... gain points the longer you hold the sword.

Anyone uses shortgun?
I picked up the universal remote exotic shortgun from nightfall and interestingly it is actually a primary weapon.

I dont use shortgun at all but do you think it could be useful for PvE? I would've thought it will be more useful in PvP.

Thoughts?

had some super duper luck yesterday :)
joined the nightfall just as it finished (literally the time popped up as i got in) and ended up collecting a legendary engram turning into Ghallahorn :)

Also managed to pick up a couple of not so useful legendary weapons yesterday. All in all, my best luck day ever.

just need to be able to somehow get my way through the crucible for my thorn bounty and my invective bounty :p
hopefully can do both at the same time.. just load up with void weapons and hope for the best :) luckily i have atheons epilogue from the raid on tuesday :)

Here's something else I just read on reddit:

apparently pre expansion exotics obtained after the 9th won't need to be rexurbished (the new term for refurbishing exotics purchasing the exotic upgrade from xur for an exotic shard)

http://www.reddit.com/r/DestinyTheGame/comments/2oaemo/pre_expansion_exotics_obtained_after_dec_9_will/ (http://www.reddit.com/r/DestinyTheGame/comments/2oaemo/pre_expansion_exotics_obtained_after_dec_9_will/)

sooo.... if you still have any unfinished exotic bounties, don't turn them in until DLC comes out. (sorry lara....)

Anyone else think Bungie had no clue what they were going to do with exotics etc after the dlc? Seems real odd they shafted people who started planning for it after this weeks update then added another change for the actual DLC. Seems a lot on the fly to me. I still like it though. I always lag behind in the leveling up these days due to lack of time so others get to tell me how it's done. Just like Mix ' falling ' out of his bubble in the Raid last night  :P

Yep, 4x Legendary gear will get you to level 31 and 1x Exotic + 3x Raid Legendaries will get you to level 32.

Some more details on the new DLC.   

The new normal mode raid will only drop armour, no weapons.   

The hard mode raid is apparently not open until sometime in Jan, so new raids weapons wont be around til then. 

So level up your fav solar and arc weapons for the new raid :)    This 'plan' from Bunglie ;) may also affect when certain vendor changes kick in.

Given nightfalls never had a level, just set to 28 as a default, I assume they are just going to up the default to 30 now, will make tonight interesting for level 29s.

Love Bunglies quote that new items will be available for 'acquisition' not for sale ;)   

"purchasing new Legendary items will require a Crucible or Vanguard Commendation"  so I hope you all had some bounties saved up.

@Dan n Marco, re our discussion last night, " Xûr will possess a selection of upgrades for existing Exotics in his inventory"  you need to have it equipped to upgrade.  So its not the case you can upgrade any exotic you have equipped, only what he stocks.

(http://www.bungie.net/pubassets/33070/xur_upgrades.jpg?cv=3983621431&av=807233625)

See from the image, it shows multiple helms that you cant equip all at once.   So we will be at the beck n call of RNG as to which 6 armor and 6 weapons appear, and not confirmed as to what will happen with PS4 exclusives here either.

Although, with DLC still to come, who's to say that won't change.

Yeah I noticed earlier when I was on that all the story missions are 30 as well. Has that always been the case? No idea why you would want to do the 1st mission at lvl 30? And the Weekly and Nightfall for me haven't changed either. Just the daily saying 30. Hopefully that means more crap rewards  :P

I needed to do the 3 stories, a few bounties, then the two new strikes before the Nightfall or weekly heroic became unlocked.

Side note i am now lvl 30 and have The Chance, new dlc Hand cannon

Post by: Jykel on December 10, 2014, 08:07:14 AM
Well mimix was on the money, its actually easy to hit level 30 now.

I enjoyed playing through the new stories and found the new type of quest bounties a good thing.   Mumur is a nice reward for the stories and is a really really handy fusion rifle.

I will hopefully be ready to run the nightfall tonight, I need to get the strikes done beforehand though.

Jumped into the new raid with some of the old Warframe crew and we made it to the second area.
Got myself the new raid gauntlets so should be able to hit 30 now
Title: Re: Destiny
Post by: mimix on December 10, 2014, 09:05:02 AM
I really liked the DLC story missions. Seemed to fit better than the main story.
Murmur is an awesome fusion.. and it sounds brilliant.

This update has also given me an awesome surprise. The cryptarch has finally turned one of my blue engrams into a legendary item!!@#!@$!@#$!@!
Scored "Do Gooder V" - a new auto rifle which will max dmg at 331. sweeet!! It was available from crucible vendor i think, but they wanted 150marks for it... hahahaha.

I haven't jumped on any gear yet to reach 31... thought i'd wait to see if something super appealing comes along (and what Xur has)

I'm all done on the bounties etc to unlock nightfall and weekly, so will be hitting those up tonight (unless there are ppl who need a hand getting there as well)

Yeah this is not a good thing, taking content away from owners just because they dont own the DLC.  Also removes your ability to get the bonus Exp from the nightfall.  Surely they could have managed 2 icons on the Destinations pages, buy adding a new one for the DLC stuff.

They definitely should have two lots but have the second on locked for non-DLC owners and DLC owners make a choice so we still only get to profit from one.

How do you work out what level you can get to based on the armour you have?

I only realised last night that armour with "light 27" probably means that you can get to a max of level 27 if you have it across the board.
So when you have a variety of 'light' levels, do you add them all up then divide by 4 to get your max level?

Add the light up Raz to work it out. 30 is 120 etc!

Level   Required Amount of Light
21   20
22   32
23   43
24   54
25   65
26   76
27   87

Ok so here goes:

Note to self - never buy a fab piece of armour (using all your vanguard marks) late at night after a massive working week, a sick child, lack of sleep and no caffiene.

As you will accidently break it down rather than equipping it and get two lousy shards and be incredibly shitty with yourself as you will NEVER hit level 30.

Damn commendation - only works once - now I need to go up another vanguard level (I am already 10) before I can buy it again. Not to mention until the reset I cannot earn enough Vanguard dollars :(

Massive fail.

Someone at work asked what I was asking for for christmas - I said some level 33 boots and a 33 helmet and walked away. Took a few hours before they came back to ask me wtf I was on about lol.

Apparently Bungie had a field day in the offices with wise cracks about the new raid and its title :)   

Try explaining to the non-Destiny literate how you got stuck deep in Crotas End . . . with 5 mates  . . . .  one got tired so you all had to pull out :P

Is it worth having a Destiny Raid: Crota's End Tales [Spoilers] thread? 

I am not keen on looking at vids or reading posts on the new Raid yet, I like the initial surprise and adventure over following a script ;)  So to avoid new raids details, I might not be so active in the Destiny forums until I get into the new raid.

Absofuckinglutely Jyk's, I am also staying away from anything Crota's End but from past experience there are always those that either don't think or love to wave their e-peen and spoil storylines/discovery for others.

I didn't get to explore VoG before running it but I plan on doing exactly that with CE and if people that have already done it decide to join me on my first run they it'll be a case of tough titties as I cruise around it.


Ok so here goes:

Note to self - never buy a fab piece of armour (using all your vanguard marks) late at night after a massive working week, a sick child, lack of sleep and no caffiene.

As you will accidently break it down rather than equipping it and get two lousy shards and be incredibly shitty with yourself as you will NEVER hit level 30.

Damn commendation - only works once - now I need to go up another vanguard level (I am already 10) before I can buy it again. Not to mention until the reset I cannot earn enough Vanguard dollars :(

Massive fail.

Someone at work asked what I was asking for for christmas - I said some level 33 boots and a 33 helmet and walked away. Took a few hours before they came back to ask me wtf I was on about lol.

Lara told me about it and there is a huge e-hug coming your way, we are destined to be forever 29's forever :(

Here's some info on the damage output for player level & weapon level. (mileage may vary, but very interesting)

I remember the noticeable difference in damage I was causing when i first hit 30.
I long to feel even more powerful now!

Just in case some of the new recruits  (or old vets) werent aware, in the In the Lounge sub forum, under Clan nights & Competition we have raids (vog & crota end) being organised quite often.

Really spewing didn't get on this game when it came out, if you're anywhere under 29/30 level these days, just too hard to find enough people. Matchmaking needs to be re-jigged just relies way too much on having an established regular group to progress in the game without hardcore long term griding, think I'll be trading the game in next week.

It is hard without people on your friends list.
just be active in the forums and add wpr members. Lots of people always willing to do the daily, weekly, nightfall  and raids. Makes the game much more fun :)

Congratulations to Akyra being the first to hit lvl 31. Once i upgrade my upgraded exotic helmet ill be 31 too. My new raid2 chest and gaunlets are experienced and just raid boots and lots radiant shards (~60) to boost me to 32.

We got to the final boss Crota but need a few lvl 31's and some practice to kill him, hopefully next week ;)

Picked up Vex Mytho from raid last night and have been trying it a little, great gun but clip is too small and not very good at medium to long range due to recoil. Hopefully one of the items in the upgrade tree will make it better.

Will try out the bad juju later today.

As for red death, great gun very accurate, only problem is blno auto fire mode.  Suits normal game play but probably not 'quick' enough during raid situation.

Don't stress mate, I am still at 28 (real world interferes too often)... there is always a crew here to help with strikes, dailies, weeklies, nightfall etc.  Some of the addicts will run these several times in a week just to help us out!

Had a quick sesh to grab some bounties, no idea (but some help from Jykel along the way) got enough coins for a couple of exotic shards or a exotic helmet. Not sure whether to get a couple of shards for a possible upgrade on exotic weapons or my exotic chest piece.....or get the helm now. Problem is only have a spare blue chest... So I'll possibly be going backwards for a short time... With raids possibly coming up, not sure what to do...
Title: Re: Destiny

I recommend getting whatever will increase your light level the most. At the moment it is most beneficial to have a higher level to be able to run in the VOG and Crota Raids. (mostly vog until you hit 30). So either buy the exotic helmet or upgrade the chest piece,
From the vog you can pick up some more raid gear but its maxed at 30 light. From the vendors you can buy armor with 33 light, and new raid drops have max 36 light (but it will take ages to upgrade due to new radiant shards).
And look at saving some vanguard marks (or cruicible marks) and buy at least a couple of pieces of new gear. This should allow you to get to lvl 30. If you buy all new gear (and or use a new/upgraded) exotic you should be able to get to 31.

Also by playing the raids your will have a good chance of getting legendary weapon drops.

The generally rule is that you take one step backwards to get two steps forward, at least while you level your gear. This is where the bounties come in handy. Do as many bounties a day as you can, and you should be able to max the experience on new armor out within a few solid days. Then its just a matter of having the glimmer, shards and materials to level them. Glimmer you can farm from stories, materials you can farm or buy and shards you get mostly from the daily heroic and the VOG raid, but also by doing a public event a day.
Title: Re: Destiny
Post by: RyZ--9 on December 14, 2014, 06:03:07 PM
Cheers.

I have the new boots and gauntlets, so I'm sorted there. So question is exotic helmet and hopefully picking up raid chest/buying through vendor, vs holding off for now and waiting for upgrade to current exotic chest and saving marks for vendor legendary helmet.

Would I be right in saying there is no diff between switching exotic to helmet vs upgrading current exotic chest as both will start from the same point?

Yes. When I upgraded my Light Beyond Nemesis exotic helmet, it reset its buffs, but light started at 30, and goes up to 36. I checked out the Voidwalker exotic chest piece Xur was selling, it had starting light 30, max 36.

Probably cheaper to just buy the new helmet, scrap the chestpiece (or keep and maybe upgrade later), as the strange coins are fairly easy to get (if you do the nightfall, weekly every week). Then buy a new chest piece and start leveling them both with bounties and you will be able to hit lvl 31!

To get to 31 should I upgrade my current raid helmet for 21 shards or grind 100 vanguard/crucible marks after the reset and use 12 shards on the new piece?

Hit the level 31 club as well on the weekend with my Warlock, makes the level 30 strikes and missions a tad easier :)  Starting to work on my trusty old Titan but so much grinding for glimmer that I am not in any rush.

I got lucky with Xur, bought 3 helmet engrams and got the a good hunter, titan and warlock helms from those, so got to save some coins and e-shards and used moot instead. 

Upgraded my ice breaker and my regime, tested them out last night in a normal raid with pat, lara, bb, spaz n mix.  Well done group for the 1st legit templar no-teleport I have ever done.  Once Mix showed us the spot on the right and we had 2 damage dealers up top and enuff titan bubbles, we nailed him!

Were your random helmet rolls for the new v2's? or the old ones. I've got 2 exotic helms already, but if a random roll will give me the up'd version i'll roll away... motes serve me no purpose otherwise

It was an awesome save on the no teleports.
I'd have to give special thanks to Spaz... reviving me after an onslaught of minotaurs and holding on by a hair to get the bubble up and block the last teleport.
You 2 up the top cut that templar down pretty damn quick tho.

Upgraded versions :)  Got a nifty Skull helm for my warlock, a replacement knuckle for my Hunter and I scrapped the one for my titan as I upgraded Armamentariumumum.   I had a heap of motes so was happy to spend em and convert em to e-shards but happy to get 2 useful drops from em.

Spaz with the clutch under pressure :)    BB and I did a heap of dmg once I knew Lara didn't need me to pop down with a spare bubble, so I could give us weapons of light up top.

Awesome, i'll be cashing in the motes for a helmet roll next week then.

Nice! Very few have that gun  :o

Now I just need to go on a hive kill-a-thon and upgrade it to the legendary version Eidolon Ally.. as it's pretty useless with 168 damage lol the upgraded legendary version does 324.

Grats man.
I know what you mean as it has taken me this long to get to 30 with my Titan.
It was frustrating but still enjoyed the game. But with the whole Radiant Shard and Energy thing it just seems easier to go through the vendors to level now

Thanks for the raids over the past few nights.
Got shards and the hard mode ship for VoG so the quest continues for a elemental primary.
Also doing Crotas End was like a walk in the park compared to my last attempt.
Had a really good time :)

It was good to have you along mate, once we all worked out each others play styles it all ran smoothly. I got the HM ship as well and couldn't believe I got 2 helmets, and the same ones at that.

Me, and maybe spaz, might need a hand from a level 30 that hasn't gone into Crota's Rear yet.  We missed the 1st chest last night and are now checkpointed at Crota.

So if some kind soul tonight is willing to load in, let me (and anyone else that needs it) join them that would be great.  You can leave straight away so it would only be a minute or two :)    Need those r-Shards ;)

yeah, once you've got all the new vanguard/crucible armour and you've levelled it up to 31, all you're looking for now are raid gear and to increase those levels you need radiant shards which you can only pick up from the crota's end raid.

I guess I'll look at the as a good thing for me then. All i get from each point is shards/energy.
So once I finally get a gear drop, i'll be set when i hit the end upgrade nodes. :)

haha we can make it more complex Spaz.  You spawn into the crota checkpoint, I log my hunter in and get that checkpoint (my hunter has the 1st chest already).  Then we leave.  I bring my titan in who is at the start, you join, I promote you, leave and join with my warlock.  We get the chest.   Then I load my hunter back in, and we resync you and my warlock to the crota check point.

Or we just dont bother about the checkpoint ;)

Does anyone have any ideas how best to collect class specific materials?
My warlock is roughly 50 Hadronic essences away from 31.
Lately i've been glimmer farming and spending them on greens from Ikora for 340.
So that would mean roughly 17000 glimmer..... (and i have like 200 glimmer now)

Anyone know any faster ways?
And no, I unfortunately don't have a stash of 500 blue engrams to shift across.
No loot cave to sit next to and wait for the green engrams to spawn either anymore :p

If you level up any armour before dismantling you get between x3 and x5 times the material. You don't have to buy the upgrades, just have them available to buy. So equip full set of green or blue armour before turning in a bounty or two and then dismantle.

 I also do it with legendary weapons I don't want that way you get 5 or 6 energy. Unfortunately it doesn't work for shards with armour.

I managed to play destiny last night.
if it doesn't work tonight i would play Dragon Age Inquisition, its been neglected the past 2 weeks. Otherwise Shadow of Mordor is always fun for executing uruks!

i have been using the Truth exotic rocket launcher lately, 3 in the magazine and 8 capacity when wearing raid boots is pretty sweet. I have exotic helmet, new raid gaunlets, chest & boots. Just need about 50 radiant shards for lvl 32  :grave:

This above.
The Exclusion Zone is a mars story. You need to adjust difficulty to Hard heroic lvl 18 for 8 major cabal to appear. Any higher difficulty doesn't  increase glimmer. On normal they are majors  and dont give much glimmer. Each run gives ~600 glimmer in about 2 mins

Random question unrelated to the above, if you get 2 pieces of the same armor (or weapons) do they always have the same stats and upgrade paths? 
I thought I read something where someone had gun A, and gun A dropped again but with better upgrade options

I didn't think so? I have lots of the same stuff in the vault and it all looks the same. Maybe the 2 perks can be different? I thought it would have a different name then though?

Yes and no... armour generally has the same stats / perks regardless (I believe), whereas some weapons do have different perks, I have 2 versions of Shadow Price (legendary Auto rifle) where one has extended clip and the other doesn't.

I also believe it's true that the weapons you get from drops are typically different from the ones you buy form vendors (perk wise).

Title: Re: Destiny
Post by: raz81 on December 31, 2014, 10:07:43 AM
I thought i would post something i discovered the other night. Might be common knowledge to some perhaps, but it was news to me.
When we were raiding a few nights ago i mentioned that my bounty slots were mostly taken up by "kill x on mission y on heroic" and that i couldnt be bothered to do them because they were time consuming. A few other people mentioned the same thing.

These are now, by far, my favourite and fastest missions. You will need to excuse the lack of detail below because i dont pay attention to mission names or target names.

Because i was in desperate need for glimmer that night, i thought i would use them for glimmer farming. The first one was on the moon where you scan the 2 cracks then go into hellmouth. I used my glimmer thingy after the scans. After killing everything on my way to the target i was back in orbit with more then a minute to go on my glimmer thingy. I got fuck all glimmer so that was a fail, but the time taken wasnt too bad i thought. Then i wondered, how quick can i actually do these.

The next one was on venus on the way to the Archive. I ran past all the vex/fallen fighting in the citadel place, ran past them in the outdoor area too. Got to a section where the mission changed to 'clear all fallen' which i was like 'bummer, this'll slow me down'. Killed 2 vandals, saw a yellow Servitor, killed it and mission over (he happened to be the target). Back in orbit within 3-4 mins of starting.

Another one on Mars, back in orbit within 3-4 mins.

The last one was the last mission of the game, and because of a buggy checkpoint i had half way through, i wasted a bunch of time running back and forth looking for the target. When he didnt appear, i finished the mission to reset. This took time because it was on heroic, and in hindsight i should have went to orbit and put it on easy (or found a way to reset it).
Fact of the matter is though, once i reset the mission, i ran past everything including the yellow cyclops, the target wasnt there, went back and killed cyclops which made target spawn, and back in orbit in 3-4 mins.

Now, i'm pretty sure i held on to these bounties because they are worth 5000xp. So if all went well with the above, that would have been 20k xp in 20 mins or less.
I levelled up so many items :)

Not sure if the above will work in Dark Below which is level 30 for heroics, but give it a try on all the normal missions. They are so easy and quick when you dont bother killing things.
Title: Re: Destiny
Post by: AkyraStrike on December 31, 2014, 10:47:28 AM
Definitely easier to speed through most of the missions when you're doing target bounties. The one's that are for the final bosses can take about 10mins, but the others where it's ultra's along the way can be done extremely quick, here's a quick reference list:

Moon
Target: Banuk, Ur Prince -  First Ultra you fight in the Sword of Crota (extremely quick).

Target: Merok, Eir Prince - Final boss in the Sword of Crota.

Target: Frigoris, Exiled Baron - Fallen Captain in the Shrine of Oryx, can be killed fairly quick.

Target: Sardok, Eye of Oryx - Final boss on the Shrine of Oryx mission.

Target: Telthor, Unborn - Final boss on Chamber of Night mission.


Venus
Target: Corrective Mind - Ishtar Collective mission first ultra that you take the mind core from, very quick to get to.

Target: Grayliks, Winter Baron - The Archive mission final boss

Target: Simiks-3 - Ultra servitor you fight before entering the archive, extremely quick.

Target: Zydron, Gate Lord - Final boss in the Eye of a Gate Lord.


Mars
Target: Bracus Tha`aurn - Buried City mission on Mars, you check save a check point right before the fight if you go to orbit immediately after killing him.

Target: Prohibitive Mind - Final boss (minotaur) in the Rising Tide mission.

Target: Divisive Mind - Ultra you fight before decending down towards the black heart in the Black Garden mission on Mars, issues with check pointing this fight as it spawns you before the fight but it does not re-spawn the Divisive Mind.


Strikes
Target: Aksor, Archon Priest - Venus Strike final boss.

Target: Phogoth - The Summoning Pits Strike final boss.
 
Target: Sekrion - Nexus Strike final boss.

Target: Sepiks Prime - The Devils' Lair Strike final boss.

Target: Valus Ta'aurc - Cerberus Vae III Strike final boss.

There's probably better methods, but I tend to just run downstairs in the cosmodrome where you spawn and kill the 3 x Hive majors. You don't even need to go back upstairs, just run to one of the corners in the subway area and wait a sec and they respawn. Typically get a drop every few runs.

The only problem with finishing at the target midway is you will need to finish the entire mission before you get that target again, the worst one obviously being the Decisive Mind in the Black Garden.

I have been picking up a fair bit of Black Wax doing the Eris bounties Spaz.

I've only had this happen to me with the Divisive Mind mission all others checkpoint ok for me, and the fix if you don't want to finish the mission is to go to orbit and (hit square I think?) to restart the mission, the problem being that you have to restart it on normal, then go back to orbit and bump the difficulty up.

So this is a run down of my awesome reset night.

Last couple of weeks I didn't get any useful drops apart from 1 pair of new raid boots. During that time I levelled up my hunter so I could try out that class and also get the trophy. Sunday night I deleted this hunter and made a second warlock....and levelled that up in 1 Destiny marathon day.

Last night my drop luck changed. I got The Last Word, but that is nothing special. Then got super lucky and scored Gallahorn. That alone would have made it a great week. But there was more to come.....VoG hard mode dropped Vex Mythoclast for me.  :up:

See what happens when you delete your hunter?  :troll:

Yeah I admit that was quite humourous. Nobody saved a video of that I hope. That's what happens when recently changing between 3 classes  ;)

If I can get this guy to 30/31, it'll be a good 2nd runner for the raids/daily/weeklies for extra gear for my main :)

Then i might as well start a Hunter and pop the trophy for levelling all three.

My Warlock is at 27 with no upgrades and my Hunter's at 24.

Made it to level 4 with Eris last night, I now have all the shards I need to be level 32.. just need 1 last piece of armour.

Also brought the shader that Eris has at level 4, looks decent on my hunter giving her an orange / black appearance.

Looking forward to doing the nightfalls / weekly tonight, hopefully people have more then 1 character to run through as I'd be keen to at least do the nightfall with 2 (if not all 3) of my characters.

I have 3 characters for nightfall. Weekly heroic is less important but can do that too if its not an annoyingly long mission.

I will be on after reset - probably starting eris morn bounties - but will get into nightfall ASaP.

Agreed on the weekly, but I do like running it on my main at least just for some extra coins and glimmer farming.

This week's should be an original strike, not even going to try to predict as they ran the nexus strike twice in a month in December, so much for rotation.

All good, I did nightfall the other week with a 29 Hunter and didn't even realise I did until the end (had alternate armour on to level, could've been 31 with proper armour). With decent weapons of the right kind of burn you'll be right.

I could say all sorts of nasty things there but I won't :P We'll be on about 8:30-9:00 your time mate.

Haha. *makes notes*
I prob be on about 930 hit tower and get any relevant bounties

What's the best and quickest way to level up from 27 to 31 without any vanguard marks to start with?

My 3rd character (titan) hit 20 and jump straight to 27 after putting on the gears i have been saving up for him.

Is it just the usual strike strike and bounty and hope RNG god give you a 33 light gear?
(Or until you have enough marks to buy)..

It also appears i can use my hunter's marks to buy gear for my titan. :(

Edit: most of the gears he have are old leg gears with max of 30 lights. Apart from the exotic ruin wing which is 36 light max.
Title: Re: Destiny
Post by: M-Rossi on January 08, 2015, 11:47:47 AM
I would say lvl26  ROC playlist as you have a cyrptach reward and you get vanguard marks.
When i picked up a legendary engram for armor it has turned to the 33 light ones. Had a couple drop in the past couple of weeks in the playlist.
Tonight ill be in crota raid, then other nights ill do a couple of bounties then hit the playlist for vanguard marks if you want to team up.
Bounties are the best way to level gear / weapons you have.
just remembered if you complete the dlc story you get lvl 33 gloves. I haven't started dlc story with my alt so could play through that with you also.
or level up your gear to 29 so you can get into crota raid and we can carry you through the first two loot drops.

Have you done the DLC story missions? They wil give you a good chunk of vanguard marks. Recruit someone online to give you hand - don't know if you get more marks for heroic.

Also, every public event gives you 4 vanguard marks. I found that quicker than vanguard roc strikes. Do every patrol bounty and stay in the areas of the upcoming public events (www.destinypublicevents.com - the events usually appear 4 minutes overdue on this site). They are quite frequent on earth right now.

Also give all your blue crypt arch engrams to your new character. You will need the materials from breaking down the armour.

I'm in the same boat Daniel. My warlock is level 27 after equipping legendary and exotic gear I picked up with my hunter. Still needs a chest piece though. We can run through the stories and strikes together and get bounties done quickly.

To answer your question, I'll quote my post in the weekly strikes thread

Ok, officially the best reset night I've ever had...

Main Character (hunter): Lucky Raspberry Exotic Hunter Chest piece from nightfall - 2 radiant energy in 1st Crota Chest

Alt 1 (Warlock): Helm of Inmost Light Exotic Titan Helmet from Nightfall (scrapped as i have 1 fully upgraded already) - 2 radiant energy in 1st Crota chest

Alt 2 (Hunter): Mask of the Third Man Exotic Hunter Helmet -  Suros Regime + 2 Shards in 1st Crota chest.

Couldn't be happier with the night  ;D ;D ;D

Thanks to Smashed, Raz & Fonzie for the help.

So, Friday night Pat and I were doing the nightfall with some alt chars when this convo takes place.
Pat : "I wish I had something more effective".
Me : "like a decent team mate?"
Pat : "haha haha"

Little did I know that was what he was thinking and he made his point heard (and felt) a short time later after Jykel had joined to help out.

See this video of his final actions driving the point across.

After showing Pat & Lara this trick last night, I thought I should share the post which lead me to it if others didn't know.

This is especially handy if you have the bounty for "Kill 10 Hive Majors/Ultras" and/or "Collect 200 Sensor mites" as you can get it done in about 1min.
It involves the 3 Hive majors underground in The Steppes and getting them to respawn while in the room (rather than run back out to a certain distance and back in). See video.

Well finally after many years of actively avoiding em, I got my 1st platinum trophy on friday night in Destiny.   I was just chilling with some old mates when they decided to run a VoG raid for energy, then someone suggested we try the flawless for 'funnzies'.

It was only a 5 man run but we managed to get through and 2 of us got the plat.  The run was filled with some hairy moments and sweaty palms during the gorgons and jumping puzzle but the network held up, peoples connections held up and Atheon didnt glitch.

More than happy to help other attempt the flawless, its trickier than I thought even at level 32.
Title: Re: Destiny
Post by: AkyraStrike on January 13, 2015, 09:24:54 AM
Nice one Jykel, congrats on the plat and the flawless. I'd love to plat destiny just for all the time I've put into it, but I still need several crucible trophies too and I get too frustrated playing crucible lol, I've had the Bad Juju and Thorn bounties for weeks and can't bring myself to play more then a few games at a time in crucible trying to finish em.
Title: Re: Destiny

If you're doing VOG normal mode (level 26) then there is no difference between level 31 and 32 I believe,  your level is only scaled 3 levels above the activity you're doing..  Correct me if I'm wrong..

Yeah i think you're right, but I always thought it was 2 levels (never really checked tho)
This totally explains why the level 4-6 in cosmo patrol dont insta die from body shots half the time, to them you are prob only lvl 8-9ish max.

I also thought it was just damage output that was limited once you outclassed the enemy by 2-3 levels, armor can still go higher tho can't it?
So being a 32 on VoG NM prob wont do anything for damage, but armor would be better.

Or am I thinking wrong?

Ah yeah I think you're right about the 2 levels... This is the details I can find on the destiny wikia:

Quote
Level vs. Damage Test

Using the same weapon against the same enemy (Level 24 Acolyte) with only Light Level as the variable.
Light 21: 184 damage per shot
Light 23: 261 damage per shot
Light 24: 383 damage per shot
Light 26: 383 damage per shot
Light 28: 383 damage per shot

Level vs. Damage Scaling

Damage Scaling:
If you are 4 levels or lower below the enemy: 100% damage penalty
If you are 3 levels the enemy: ~52% damage penalty
If you are 2 levels the enemy: ~42% damage penalty
If you are 1 levels the enemy: ~32% damage penalty
If you are 0 levels below or higher than the enemy: 0% damage penalty

Can't find damage taken when you're a higher level though.

EDIT: Reddit thread confirming that the damage you take and output only scales to match the level of enemies.. http://www.reddit.com/r/DestinyTheGame/comments/2h9t6b/this_is_how_light_levels_affect_your_gameplay_and/ (http://www.reddit.com/r/DestinyTheGame/comments/2h9t6b/this_is_how_light_levels_affect_your_gameplay_and/)

So basically you're penalised for being under, but gain no advantage being higher?

Helps explain some of the weapon buffs and weapons of light buff amounts too. 

Level 32 doesn't really help with a VoG flawless run, cept you feel more confident ;)

For those that need the crucible trophies, might be worth finding 3~6 people in a similar boat and group up for a week to grind em out.  I did mine in week 1 or 2 when there wasn't much else open to low levels cept stories, bounties and crucible, so a group of us smashed the crucible and a controller or 2. 

Maybe set up a thread to organise a crucible trophy group, its much more fun to deal with and blame the lag in a group :)   Happy to join in and help when I can as well.

Never underestimate a good psychological boost  ;)

I think the only crucible trophy I'm struggling with is the kill a warlock, hunter and titan without dying.. I can often go on 5 or 6 kill sprees but I just can seem to kill the right classes in those runs.. getting the max crucible marks is another but that's just laziness / boredom not reaching the max. I think I need the heavy weapons kills too, but again that would come easy if I tried for it properly.

I picked up my 3-in-1 pretty quickly as a titan on control with a highly contested point. Waited for it to be loaded with about 4-5 players and just titan smashed the lot... DING!

Yeah, the max crucible marks will be a chore since I can't do PvP for hours on end, it just gets old - but then playing with a group would be more fun!

Playing with a group for me makes it a lot easier to put up with the variable lag and certain OP things that cause me to rage.

In a salvage game on the weekend, me and 2 mates were up against 3 blade dancers all with Vex Mythos and Plan C, on the new crappy TDM style maps.  Needless to say, we got smashed and were raging.  Switched lobby and we won 3 straight.  If I was playing solo, I would have left half way through game 1.

I am always up for a game or 2, so happy to help out if/when you pick a week to have at it.

I need 3-in-1 and salvage and yes Jyks, the advantage of running in a group is huge purely as you know you have the backup that you don't have with randoms. As far as max marks goes I ground mine out over two days when I was after some gear from the FWC.

That and the motivation for 'just one more game' ;)   I tend to find ways of making it fun even if losing, esp on control  :troll:  where the gameplay is rather predictable.  Nothing wrong with a dance party at a spawn point, and everyone having their supers ready for the uninvited guests ;)

So what's everyone's thoughts after the next DLC? I don't know how keen I'll be to pay for the current way the leveling goes. And the weapon increase that shit on all the original damage stats just left me feeling a bit pissed at the dev. I've only ' paid ' to increase 1 of my original guns and 1 piece of armour.

Anyway what are you all planning to do? Carry on full speed or become more casual or brush it completely?

I think initially regardless of what they do with the next DLC I'll still play, I've paid for it so I may as well play it, but I can see it becoming a more casual once or twice a week thing (possibly nightfall & raids only etc.) as I'm already feeling a little that way now with reaching level 32, only really keen for nightfall and raids at the moment.

The rumours are that characters will carry over to 'Destiny 2' in some way, whenever that may be, so I'll at least want to keep my character at a satisfactory level.

Ill hit lvl 32 after this weeks raiding. Then I'm going to take a break from Destiny until the next dlc. Play that maybe if i dont have anything else on at the time just for a new Raid (as i have the expansion dlc).
After that i have heaps of others games im looking forward to. Mgs, witcher 3, sw battlefront, division, no mans sky. I doubt ill buy the comet dlc.

Coiled Hiss 1919 Pulse Rifle... slight improvement on the one I am currently using.

Wait wait... You're using a pulse rifle?

Late response, and yes I am.. suits how I fire anyway as I don't tend to use long bursts.

My target is 32 and then I think I'll go and race until the next DLC drops, play it until max then go racing again. I have also only upgraded three weapons as i fail to see the point with most of them.

I am currently finding running my second character through the story much more enjoyable than grinding my primary, to the point where I have yet to bother with CE.  I will have a play with the next DLC and then can see me moving on.  I think the Light based leveling system is actually a step back and an attempt to do "something different" than the well established, experience based process.

Yeah I feel the same, despite all it's flaws and lack of story, I've had a lot of fun with destiny and piled more hours into it as I have with any other game (possibly with the exception of Skyrim), so for the initial $69 + DLC, I'm happy with it.

Post by: M-Rossi on January 14, 2015, 02:37:55 PM
I am happy with the 200 hours I have got out of Destiny for the price too, only passed by skyrim & bf4. Destiny has been heaps of fun gaming with a group, and has really got me into co op.
As much as I used to be an rpg / sp gamer mostly then fps mp but as an individual, I now would put in a co op game with people from WpR over sp, proven by my lack of time in Dragon Age Inquisition atm.

Looking forward to new titles such as the Division and others to continue the trend.

I'm at 320 total plus probably another 30 for my Hunter. There is certainly no complaint here with the game, if they had private crucible we could have done good nights.

If anyone is looking to get their husk of the pit leveled up, a mate showed me a great place to do it that makes it pretty easy to get all those hive kills. 

Its hard to explain in text, other than its in the awakening story in a chamber where cursed thrall come out . .
hang on its bound to be on a vid somewhere . . . nah could find one :(   

Happy to show anyone before raid-o-clock tonight.   The advantage of this spot is you don't have to move, die or go to orbit, the cursed thrall continually spawn if you stay in the right spot.  You just kill one cursed thrall in a group of about 7~8 and the exploding ones also count towards the weapon progress.

Yeah in the dome room after you kill the shrieker and the cursed thrall run in, just don't go past the rock in the middle or through the door, and the cursed thrall keep spawning every 6 seconds and running in, infinitely.  Let them past the rock when you need ammo :)

Title: Re: Destiny
Post by: M-Rossi on January 16, 2015, 01:22:56 PM
The 300 VOC is great for solar damage in nightfalls, and does great constant DPS against Crota's shield at the end of the raid. I have a maxed one for each of my 2 characters.
Other than that I now run a 331 maxed Black Hammer instead of my 331 maxed icebreaker ( i have 2 maxed icedbreakers, and 2 blackhammers, makes switching characters easier).



Title: Re: Destiny
Post by: Jykel on January 16, 2015, 01:31:03 PM
VOC is also handy for those pesky fire shield shanks in nightfalls (esp when its not solar burn)  and does great damage against Atheon between nades if you have it set to the field scout (bigger clip) so no need to reload it during times vengeance.

There's a fair few of us at 32 now, the raid is definitely getting done quicker and easier (bugs / lag allowing), a few of us are working on levelling alts to 32 as well.

So we can all be ready for the next DLC which sees people that have never raided by vanguard gear and surpass us  :up:

I think they have to since there must be a massive amount of players who don't do raids. The non-matchmaking for raids really limits it's users.

Me personally am a little over the raids. The lack of rewards ( for me ) and bugs/glitches are just not fun anymore.

Hmm ok I need to buy vanguard gear then. I thought it only went to 33 light - guess that was a change I missed. I am waiting on helmet and chest piece and get nothing from the raids anymore.

Going to log in at lunch :)

You're correct, Vanguard Gear is only 33 light = level 31.
VoG Raid Gear is 30 light = Level 30.

That's what annoys me.

I also suspect they may have lowered the armour drop rate in the last patch.  Before that armour was dropping very frequently and now it appears a lot less, and they screwed the VoG drops in the process as its doing weird double drops n stuff atm.

That's funny... if only I could be so lucky.

I got home yesterday and find my 4yr old has jumped in the crucible. I just started laughing. He knew he was fighting "partners" as he calls them.
"I'm alpha team" he says.   and he's getting slaughtered.
Next thing he shot someone  "I killed him HAHAHA" extremely excited.
Followed by a random flashbang at a doorway... DING, another one.... then "BIG SMASH"  DING another.

He came last with a KD of 0.3 or something... but damn it was funny.
I could only think... if these ppl knew a 4yr old got you.

Apotheosis Veil seems useful for the hm Crota raid (if I ever hit level 32, need chest piece and many radiant shards). Perks: Replenish health when you pick up an orb and activating your super regenerates your health

Picked up an interesting little hand cannon from a random legendary engram drop last night, its called TFWPKY 1969.

It has massive impact but a pretty slow rate of fire and range. The good thing about it is that one of its perks is Performance Bonus (Kills with his weapon grant bonus reserve ammo) and it also rolled with Field Scout (standard clip is 10, not sure what field scout will up it to, but very handy).

The thing with Destiny is there's no wrong time to start. In fact, now is the best time because you will be going straight onto upgraded hardware and won't have to buy another set of gear! (at least until March when the DLC drops).

Pretty easy to reach level 20 once you understand the mechanics etc and you should be able to get a few of us to help you reach that :)

I'd at least wait until Xur comes. Don't want to blow 25k on heavy and he rocks up with 5 for 1 coin. What else are you going to do with those coins?
But synths is a quick way to lower it so you can keep collecting. Either that or buy crap gear to dismantle for class materials.

Special shout out to Fonzie and Smashed for taking little mix (4yo) on a nightfall today.
Had no issues taking him on since he was playing at the time (i'm working).
He was excited to fight the big boss! and i had to tell him to hide more after he played the usual run & gun or sit in the open filled with snipers.

He still needs practice with the nades/knives since they just get lobbed into the air, but he does like his scout rifles and hand cannons.

But at the end he had 8 kills, 18 assists (not sure how many deaths) compared to Fonzie and Smashed's 100+ kills.

Thanks guys!

Not only is buffing weapons more important than fixing glitches....... But nerfing weapons is also more important. I don't think I will be be buying any future DLCs after HoW because of the state of their product - and the lack of priority they have in fixing it.

i have some of the same questions

- plants are for upgrading gear. spinmetal or flowers and shit....just collect them and dont ask questions. lol
- someone else may have picked up the sword, and i think it might despawn if no one picks it up...maybe...who knows.

- yes, just keep collecting them. Though now you can buy them with the vanguard/crucible marks so it's not as critical to collect every single one you see (but definitely worth it if your running about and see one)
- once the sword guy (swordbearer) is taken out, it only lasts a certain amount of time if it is picked up or not. The giant 4-legged thing (spider tank) probably just crossed paths with a swordbearer, so it looked like the spider dropped it.
- yes, the missions are the same run&gun repeats in diff locations with some slightly diff objectives. The main appeal for me now is the raids & weekly strikes. But then running the old missions/strikes is essential to levelling any armor/weapons you obtain along the way. So it can be a real grind sometimes, but goes a lot quicker if you run with 2 others.

p.s. don't have you on my list SgtEeyore, so sent friend request...(already got you Col).
Happy to help you both level up so you aren't banging against a wall and can get into some raid action.
