Sounds like good changes in the upcoming expansion. The annual pass sounds like a way to stop creating story for the game, no campaigns for the whole year, story included only as lore from collecting things - at least thats how I understood it during the presentation.

Relax, cayde 6 can be revived as cayde 7 (exo lore). Maybe with a new voice actor if Nathan Fillion is too expensive now that D2 kind of bombed.

I think it’s only the memory that can be reset (ie become cause 7), but once you are dead, you are dead.

Bungie have said he's 100% gone.. not coming back. The stakes are high in the new expansion.

Cynic in me thinks the wanted to get more preorders for Caydes exotic stash!

Yeah, read a bit more of the lore, and exo reboot is only something to combat disassociative exomind rejection (where the mind rejects the exo body).  Killing off the one bit of character the game has is a bit weird, but may point to budget constraints.

His ghost get killed, so there is no revive, the light is gone. RIP Cayde...

Still doesn't entice me back to the game though.

Spaz didn't like clayde anyway so no mulla from Spaz!

The start of D1 defies this doesn't it? A ghost that wasn't your's comes and revives you.

That Ghost was made for us.. he had been searching for ages..

Umm given how much money im guessing they make from eververse I doubt they have any budget constraints

Pretty much.

Its good that it's all heading in the right direction, I think if a lot of it was like this from launch I might've stuck with it, but it's still too little too late (and too much to have to re-buy the game again) at this point.

Yup, no.... I haven't even finished the last expansion.... And they want my money again... nope.

Way too pricey. After being a massive detractor of Destiny I ended up buying D2 to play with my Mrs. I remained playing, and having fun, long after everyone in WpR quit.
But I'm over it now. Might pick this up when its on a massive special, but I cant be bothered anymore (once i stop playing something I find it really hard to get back into it). But the endless repetitive nature....ugh. And i dislike my character, that i worked super hard to make 'good', being made completely shit and redundant with every patch/expansion.

Spaz is the same and going to get when it's in the cheap bin. Just to finish the story (lol Destiny story). It's become clear to Spaz Plungie was only interested in loot boxes and screwing the player base towards loot boxes.

A quick spoiler-free rundown for anyone interested.

New story missions are good, although very easy if not running solo. Not a great story (as usual), but nobody is playing the game for the story.

Plenty of activities to do after the campaign, like hunting down bosses, new patrol locations with lost sectors and adventures,  2 new strikes I think, and new public events. These will get power level to the soft cap.

Power engrams needed to raise power level above soft cap - and thankfuly there are more ways to earn these. Some power engrams can be earnt daily, others weekly, and the activities involved are varied. In short - much more variety in the grinding for power level.

Exotic drops are very rare now. I have had 1 new exotic drop and 1 old exotic, and have not seen anyone else in my fireteams have any drop.


Overall the game is fun again due to the variety of the grind. 3 new supers for each class add some freshness to the game - new warlock void super is awesome.

I will admit after all the ranting I've done about it, i have thought about it a couple of times. I've even dipped back in for a couple of missions on the last dlc.

Watched a lot of Datto and his team struggle through the raid. Mental stuff I there, so much coordination required.
Says something when the fastest was 18hrs or something.

The exotics now feel more powerful than vanilla D2 so they're now back to D1.5!

Been having fun using ace of spades to explode heads (and the conveniently adjacent shielded yellow bar....)

btw been trying to solo Vorgeth and only to the DPS phase once.  If anyone already has the awoken medallion (trigger wishender bow quest) and/or want to do the ascendant challenge let me know.
