Actually started playing this again on ps4, is a far better game then it was. I've now transferred to pc due to the current steam sale and really enjoying my time with it. So much better on pc

Tempting.. downloading Neverwinter again to see if the rubberbanding is fixed. Also tempted to try ESO again.

This could also be a possibility..

It's a tough one really, I mean the gameplay is pretty addictive while now having a loot system that is more similar to diablo 3 then anything else. But it is very grindy (i happen to enjoy that part of it), the dz is a lot of fun if not frustrating at times.

My favourite mode is survival which was a dlc expansion. The only downside to it is it isn't very rewarding once you've finished a round. The fun factor makes up for a lot of that though.

I picked up the gold edition on PC at launch, the news I have seen over the last few weeks has been tempting but I havent had the chance to give it a go yet.

I've also heard eso gaining popularity again.
With all the recent talk of 'Games as a service it's interesting to see some developers stick to a game and improve them over time.

I personally would rather see a paid DLC drop with decent value for money than a new game once it's in a good state. Like World of Warcraft has done successfully.

I actually sold my copy of the division, very tempted to get it on PC for $23 steam sale otherwise about $20 ps4; but my ps4 character had a heap of gear sets already so I'll probably stick to that.

Neverwinter still rubberbanding. I'll leave it installed but I can't deal with running forward 100m and then suddenly teleporting back to where I was. Does my head in.

Picked up the Division from eb games $15, put it in and said 1.8 patch is 24GB.
If only I had @spazmanaught connection, will take 5 hours on my connection...

Geez 24gb patch. Sounds like the entire game. I reinstalled Witcher 3 and it had 20ish gb update. Took about 45mins. First world problems.

Looking in the ubisoft club, says I have 204 hours in game to date.

My gear score is 192, looks like all the maxed items i had are now low. Looks like i best get to killing some enemies.
Played for a little and I forgot how fun the cover based shooting was. @Tweakzero maybe we can get a crew happening again, if anyone else is interested in having a run just msg me on ps4

Title: Re: The Division in 2018
Post by: Auldar on February 19, 2018, 10:17:04 AM
Yeah I wonder the same. Do I have to pay for the season pass to level up my gear?

Also I hated DZ gank fest last time so is it mandatory to progress still?

You don't need any dlc in order to get the best gear and have an enjoyable time.

Right now resistance is the best form of farming gear and that's free. Out of the 3 dlc released, underground and survival are both good in their own way and worth getting if you end up getting hooked.

The Resistance (hoard/ zombie sytle mode), skirmish  (2v2 pvp) new modes are free with base game, as is the new pier area. Plus entire map gets tier 1-5 scaling according to gear score.
What you need the dlc/season pass for is Survival, Last stand (4v4 pvp) & Underground DLC  (& 2 incursions)
You can get any gear drop anywhere now so do not need to go in dz other than for div tech. But new rogue system means it needs to be turned on and reduces accidents and some trolling

Post by: M-Rossi on February 19, 2018, 12:21:26 PM
Last night I started at gs 192, did a high value targets and got a gold drop which boosted my gs to 204, I could then change world tier to two and lvl 31 enemies were tough. I did another couple of Search and Destroy high value targets (which were hard!) And got a couple of gear set items and golds ranging from 197 - 238. For reference my original gs 192 was weapons 186, gear mostly 186 and a couple 238 items from first incursion back in 2016.
Picked up a few gold guns 195, more gear over 200. But there is so much rpg customisation that I need to spend an hour playing with gear sets, bonus, mods and weapons to have an effect build without losing too much syngery from my original Tactitan build. I don't want to swap out my m1a or caduecus 186 guns or my skill build but new better gear drops seem better

I wouldn't worry too much about your gear until you hit wt5, that's when the real grind begins.
Title: Re: The Division in 2018
Post by: Snook__13 on February 19, 2018, 12:37:05 PM
Also I find the quickest way to get to wt5 is to farm the world bosses, which respawn every 4 hours. There are maps if you google it which show where they all are.

The other way is to find someone who is in wt5 and join them and you'll get all 256+ gs items plus they can drop whatever they get for you. I'm happy to help with that, doesn't take long at all.

I'm playing on ps4 (dreaded starting again on pc) but tbh I'm not in a rush to max gear up quickly. I'll just be happy to be entertained playing this a couple of hours a night.

I have a 270ish gs character in ps4 that I was playing before starting on pc. I'm happy to play both of you guys ever want to group up. The Australian player base is bigger on ps4 which helps. I just couldn't resist trying it on pc as well, especially when it was that cheap.

There is a demo on ps4 fit those wanting to try it.

I gave it a whirl recently and it didn't click for me at all. It felt clunky and the gun fights were not very enjoyable or entertaining. I like cover shooters but found this boring and silly....shooting a street thug with a hundred bullets in what is trying to be a realistic setting...didn't work for me anyway

You need a willing suspension of disbelief to enjoy it. It's an RPG game firstly, set in a realistic / shooter style world. If you can do that it's very enjoyable. It's understandable for those who dont. It's quite common and the developers knew it would be the case for a good portion of players. Tbh it's why no other developer has done rpg in a realistic shooter scene. Let alone associate with Tom Clancy as an rpg.

Going to go around the normal map killing boses first. They call it the Light Zone now, boses have chances to drop exotics, high end gear and credits. I also believe Bullet King is back!
Quote
In Update 1.4, the PVE portion of the game has seen the addition of respawnable bosses, including Bullet King. Upon death, the same mobs will respawn after 4 hours. He can be found in his original location near the Autumn's Hope safe house.

I'll be collecting Division Credits since there is a really good M700 sniper on sale for $1.6Million credits at the meat locker safe house until Friday. It looks like a Must buy with its talents and 284 gearscore (max is 286)
I'm also keen to try the Resistance mode
Title: Re: The Division in 2018
Post by: Snook__13 on February 20, 2018, 12:54:24 PM
It's really easy to get credits now, you just sell all the drops you get that you don't need to a vendor instead of breaking them down. Shouldn't take you long to get enough, higher the gear score, the more they sell for.
Title: Re: The Division in 2018
Post by: Auldar on February 20, 2018, 06:10:45 PM
Can a low gear score player get to that vendor to buy it?

I'm pretty sure vendors scale to your gear score bracket. So unless your 256+ it won't be the highest level. Still the same weapon and talents though, damage stats just lower.

So vendors do seem to scale with world tier. I'm gs 220 now so hopefully I can make it into 256+ to buy it as the gun looks great. I personally prefer sniper rifles too.

No worries, I had fun last night. I will definitely be playing more on ps4 with you guys. It's a lot better with friends, and not randoms.

Now I can slowly work on building a set. I spent almost an hr last night clearing my old stash and storing new gear.

Best advice would be to start and extraction at one point and then head to another and extract there instead. Hide and wait until the last 10 seconds before the chopper leaves and attach your loot then. Oh and then prey

Oh I dunno I think I might be the Prey playing DZ solo with an exotic drop to steal :P

Maybe I should wait until tonight when I can get help extracting.

There's a Drop happening now that might distract the rogues.

Exciting!

I was running solo in the dz, enemies are tough! Extracted some random items and another player came and extracted, then his gs 291 mate came and they went rogue and killed me in a second... i had no loot on me...
Then did some random LZ bosses, search and Destroy and a Lincoln tunnel challenge.
I'll be keen to complete the weekly assignments tonight. Need to kill about 40 dz rikers & 9 more missions
Title: Re: The Division in 2018
Post by: Auldar on February 24, 2018, 04:59:02 PM
I've got about 15 or so Rikers to go and 10 missions (I think we should just smash through some Hard ones to get it done!).

I mamaged to get my exotic gloves out. Pity I have to use it without gear sets. I'm sure it will be more interesting when I have more High End gear to play around with instead of tons of greens.

Finally got myself a Classified from. Level Up cache but sadly it was a D3-FNC which I don't see myself using.

Have only tried Reclaimer with 2 Nomad.

Based on reading I like the sound of Reclaimer, Striker, and Sentry's Call..

I'm keen to play a Tatician build but only have 1 piece, so running 2 nomad and just other randoms atm. I need to do some reading about the sets, maybe I'll make a thread.

The daily crafting missions are easy for the players coming back, check in your Mission tab for the daily tasks, also just playing will give you field proficiency caches.
Don't worry to much about getting gear sets until you have a gear score of 260+, that's when you can start min maxing.

Interesting discussion on this Weekly reset thread Rossi. They discuss using low GS weapons with a tactition set to make activating key talents that are good for skill based build much easier.

Maybe grab the low GS LVOA-C blueprint from Camp Clinton for your tactition build...

If you want a 256 caduecus, farm the lz bosses. They currently have a small exoctic loot pull and only drop 3 I think including the caduecus.

Had fun last night! Nice to see more of us playing now.

Amhersts apartment is the quickest mission to do on hard solo. You run past most enemies. Have to kill 3 in the second area to spawn the elite and then you can run all the way to the end without killing anyone. Can be done in under 5 minutes

Well if you apply the logic in the thread if the 188 exotic has the talents you want to use then just use it and don't worry about the GS..

I was running around with some weirdo @spazmanaught last night. Interesting playing with my lvl 7 character, so much less damage but enemy health was less so time to kill was about the same. Most noticeable aspect was not having the skill cooldowns and buffs from the gear set.

I'm always a bit anxious about trying to convince people to buy things just because I like them but yeah, you should.

Underground is pretty amazing and is another alternative to resistance. It's less repetitive too.

Survival is just a heap of fun outside of the main game, once you're hooked it's hard to put down.

Haven't even tried last stand, not that massively into pvp outside of getting ganked by 12 man death squads... love that.

Plus all the incursions which just gives us all more to do as a clan.

happy to play a few different things. I'm personally not going to worry about grinding too hard and just see what ge credits i get, ill likely save most up for the Tactician sets in the last global event (credits will carry over each event).
Although the 6 piece isn't really worth it so I'm not really fussed other than getting stronger pieces.

There is a cap so just be aware of that. If you aren't too interested in the sets available, apparently the cheaper crate you can buy has a higher chance of exotics. Showstopper and the house would be bloody great to get. Ninjabike bag too.

Assault global event this weekend.
This is from reddit.


The Modifier of Assault revolve around more/less damage from NPCs over long / short distances. The positive Global Modifier gives you a strong damage buff when you are close to the NPCs and when you activate Crucial Assault or Major Assault they will do a lot more damage when they shoot from far away.

 

Assault (Global Modifier)
Always active; All Agent damage is increased at close range.

Crucial Assault (Only active in the Assault Playlist)
Assault behavior, plus all enemy damage is increased at longer range

Major Assault (Only active in the Assault Playlist and only for groups)
Crucial Assault behavior, plus Agent damage increases when close to team members, enemy damage increases when apart from team members.

Sounds like fun, shotguns will be great to use plus m4's and smgs. If only I had a house or showstopper. Bullfrog will have to do.

I think it starts Thursday around 7pm

The fastest way without having is run you through mission on wt5 is to follow the safe house quests. If you do the side missions plus main missions in each zone, plus encounters you'll hit 30 with one zone still left.

Finding gear with exp from kills also helps.

Ninjabike build with 3 striker, 1 lone star and 1 nomad. High stability and a perfect m4 with responsive, destructive and predatory in the free slot. High amounts of enemy armour damage and damage to elites.

I was using the bullfrog today which is like a famas, really high fire rate for an assault rifle. Itís special talent is 15% more damage, which is reduced when any mods with stability or accuracy are on it. It wrecks, especially up close when you donít worry too much about the recoil.

Other then that I just try to build striker stacks against any heavy first, and then clean up the rest after.

Post by: Snook__13 on March 11, 2018, 12:29:26 PM
This is the guide I followed for the build from reddit.

EAD is enemy armor damage
DTE is damage to elites
HOK is health on kill

This build plays aggressively in the face of the NPCís utilizing cover when needed. The high Firearms shreds NPCís while the moderate Stamina helps survive a few extra shots. Predatory combined with HoK and a kill every 5 seconds gives an average of 6.75% healing per second. This is the same as Classified Striker with 6K Stamina having ~56 stacks or 9K Stamina with ~40. This hits harder and the healing starts stronger, but classified can out heal it becoming a tank. This build doesnít need to tank if thereís nothing left shooting at it. Target the heavy first to build stacks, then mop the floor with the rest. Medkits and Overdose are for emergency situations when Recovery Link is on cooldown (medkit first, overdose second, then another medkit as required to find cover). Speaking of which, if Recovery Link is down, swap to the secondary weapon to farm it back with Determined. Smart placement of Flame turret will provide crowd control even with its low health and damage.

Gear

3x Striker, 1x Nomad, 1x Lonestar, 1x Ninja Glue
Note: Iíve used Sentry over Lonestar, but havenít noticed a large difference in accuracy, I do however notice the difference in ammo
~8K Firearms / ~4K Stamina / ~2.8K Electronnics
Chest: EAD, HoK, ammo
Mask: EAD, DtE
Knees: health, DtE, burn and shock resistance
Backpack: stability, burn or shock resistance
Gloves: AR damage, HoK, EAD
Holster: reload
mods: purple DtE mods
perf mods: first aid self heal
Weapons

Primary: LWM4 with Destructive, Responsive and free Predatory modded to stability followed by headshot damage. Stability ensures my gun isnít moving so that it builds stacks.
Secondary: LWM4 with Responsive, Destructive and free Determined modded like the primary.
Note: Moving 1 firearm roll to electronics to use Ferocious instead of Responsive hits as hard as the current build does when you are further than 10m from your elite NPC target (weaker vs anything else). This means that sometimes it hits the same, most of the time it doesnít hit as hard, as such I find these talents superior.
Skills and Talents

Overdose First Aid, Flame Turret, Recovery Link
On the Move if you kill in the open a lot or Steady Hands if you use cover a lot, Precision, One is None, Critical Save

I think classy striker will always beat that ninjabike build. This build is just for those of us who have been unlucky.

So itís 3/9/2 build for you then, I am wondering is 9k Stam necessary? That seems a lot ..

Do you recalibrate all gears to Stam stats and then add firearm mods on them to get to this build?

Also what weapons are good? I am using a lightweight m4, but gonna need another one.

Yeah sounds good. Keen to jump on this weekend for the next global event. The dz is normally nice and empty during geís. Not sure what the sets are this weekend but If youíre not interested in them then you can buy the 900 credit cache which has a higher chance of an exotic.

Yeah I normally donít even pick anything up unless itís classified. Nice to mix it up with dz outside of just running the same mission over and over. You 6 piece classified striker fellas can protect me, who knows maybe a striker mask will drop for me. I think I have 3 pieces of every other slot, love rng

Spaz is kunfusion about the classes? Is there a guide to show exotic, classified etc? Spaz picked up an exotic holster yesterday but it's stats are lower than my other stuff. Is Spaz meant to try and upgrade it or something?

Also it was weird to talk to @Auldar  last night. Spaz thought he was a myth  :P

Got maxed out stamina mods? I think 256 is the highest. Also see if you can reroll the stamina on your striker pieces to get them as maxed out as possible.

Mostly at 252.
Only piece thatís not quite maxed out is the best at 1315, but I canít re-roll that as I have re-rolled two other stats on it. But then even if I can max that out I am still a bit short.

Edit: actually I might have to check, I think I actually have the glove on FA roll, but most 9k build actually leave glove on FA. Sooo...

Is there a way to increase the guns/gear score? Spaz has some good pieces he picked up earlier but they are 260 etc. How do you make them 280+? Or is this the game grind?
Title: Re: The Division in 2018
Post by: Auldar on March 21, 2018, 09:26:12 AM
Yep while you can re-roll 1 stat on non-classified armor (2 for classified) and can then spend Div Tech to optimise (increases all stats a bit), the only way to make guns stronger other than re-rolling one of the talents is to use Div Tech to optimise.

This will increase the Gear Score.

Note that next patch there will be loads of ways to get lots more Div Tech making it easier than it is today to optimise your gear.

Snuck in an hour this morning before my first meeting for the day.

The last 2 caches I opened gave me the last piece of FireCrest I was missing and then a way better final piece of Tacticians gloves that I wanted (since the other ones were pretty badly rolled).

Yay only took me 61 caches. Pushed me to my final chance of getting it!



Here's my notes of where I'm at with my sets:

Striker - Complete

AlphaBridge - complete

Tacticians - complete

HF - Complete

Firecrest - Compete

----

Banshee - missing Chest

Sentry - missing knees

Predator's Mark - missing holster

Reclaimer - Missing Gloves

I'm still missing gear from 2 sets of this GE. Nomad and D3-FNC.

Omg. Been running Lex until my eyes are bleeding.

Took me until the last set of caches and suddenly got the last 2 pieces I needed for Nomad. Also got my first Big Al (not great roll) and another House with Destructive.

Then I also made it into tier 3 for the GE, so got 3 caches extra (although only 1 piece in them) and a jacket.

Wouldn't you know it, the last piece I was missing, D3-FNC Gloves! Yay!

Snagged all sets from this GE!

Only missing pieces from 3 sets now. That's nuts! Soon I'll be able to work out how to use them and what to do with the 10 copies I have for some pieces

Been doing some underground lately with Des and Cnstr, got nailed by those hunters every time they appeared. Those guys are crazily overpowered with one hit melee kill.

@des and @cnstr some reddit users said using shock ammo/attribute helps, and if the way point didnít come up within 2 seconds of clearing the room then it means they are coming.

Strategy is pretty much the same, focus fire on one of them.

They will always spawn with a number thatís +1 of the group. Ie if we have a team of 3, then there will be 4 hunters spawn.
