So far this game makes me miss Borderlands. It's Boringlands.
Sep 10th 2014
18
      you copping the Pre-Sequel?
Sep 10th 2014
19
           I didn't think so at first. Destiny makes me want to now, tho.
Sep 10th 2014

           i seem to be incapable of NOT buying borderlands releases

Hit 20
Sep 10th 2014

joined the clan -- I should be at 20 with a Titan by the end of the week...

RE: Hit 20

29
still love it.
Sep 11th 2014
26
Bungie is great at making worlds and bad at telling stories.
Sep 11th 2014
30
its dope to me i never played borderlands I'm a level 7 hunter
Sep 11th 2014
28
Borderlands throws way variety and content at you (out the box)
Sep 11th 2014
33
get geared up
Sep 11th 2014
32
yup, all my best gear has come from Strikes
Sep 11th 2014
38
despite the lack of story, it has some depth
Sep 11th 2014
34
RE: despite the lack of story, it has some depth
Sep 11th 2014
37
      yup, I felt that pain, too, you should be able to build loadouts
Sep 11th 2014
39
      yeah a wheel like GTA V would really help
Sep 12th 2014
43
who on 360?
Sep 11th 2014
41
I can't decide if I like the Titan Defender subclass
Sep 12th 2014
42
keep using it
Sep 12th 2014
44
yeah, I read up on it -- real perks seem to hit on the 3rd tier
Sep 12th 2014
45
      My Striker is pretty much maxed.
Sep 12th 2014
47
           I don't know anything about a 3rd sub + it's jarring to go to Defender
Sep 12th 2014
49
I could see how it helps on the Crucible

Gameplay more than makes up for the plot/writing
Sep 15th 2014
57
Shits heat rock I just got to Mars
Sep 15th 2014
58
Did you get the red fully auto assault rifle with the scope?
Sep 16th 2014
65
      Primary weapons only do normal damage
Sep 16th 2014
66
The grind is real
Sep 15th 2014
60
'Beat' it. Shot out to Tw3nty for the assist with that last boss.
Sep 16th 2014
61
No Prob.
Sep 16th 2014
63
      Yeah, that gun is pretty damn good.
Sep 16th 2014
67
Raid is up
Sep 16th 2014
62
if I buy the purple chestpiece, I think I can hit 25, although...
Sep 16th 2014
68
      update your lowest item only if it gives you a light boost
Sep 17th 2014
69
           got purple gloves, now I gotta farm resources to max level it
Sep 17th 2014
78
I'm a level 23 now, so despite all that shit I was talking
Sep 17th 2014
70
the story is more nonexistent than dumb
Sep 17th 2014
71
Fair point. I'm slowly starting to piece it together.
Sep 17th 2014
73
did anyone ever explain why you can just summon a jetbike at will
Sep 22nd 2014
97
      It's advanced materialization technology. You don't have to explain shit...
Sep 22nd 2014
98
           lol...basically
Sep 22nd 2014
99
The story is there you gotta pay for DLC for you to get it
Sep 22nd 2014
96
dunno if you ever played a mmo befor
Sep 17th 2014
72
I can see that. I feel so manipulated, man.
Sep 17th 2014
74
      Tried and true formula.
Sep 17th 2014
75
           it's the same formula from Call of duty
Sep 17th 2014
76
           What's scary...
Sep 17th 2014
77
           This is why I never have played a MMO/online shooter
Sep 17th 2014

word. addictive as shit

Destiny Plot Synopsis
Sep 17th 2014
79
Basically.
Sep 17th 2014
80
I just got to the moon, Dinklage was like we gotta protect the city
Sep 17th 2014
82
      I block Lil Ty-Ty all the way out. Every line of dialogue from him hurts...
Sep 19th 2014
86
           it constantly feels like, if they added one more line
Sep 19th 2014
87
                It's crazy because they went all out casting it.
Sep 19th 2014
88
                     that's pretty much par for the course for video games though
Sep 19th 2014
89
                          true
Sep 19th 2014
90
                          it's true but they went SO DEEP down the roster
Sep 19th 2014
91
                               sounds like a waste of time for everyone involved
Sep 19th 2014
92
Holy shit, that moon looking thing was the Traveller?
Sep 17th 2014
81
it's like it was only half written and they said fuckit
Sep 19th 2014
85
      in 2014 who still plays video games for stories?
Sep 20th 2014
93
LOL
Sep 21st 2014

Sep 25th 2014
106
yoooo -- NICE purple loot guaranteed for doing Queen's Kill Orders
Sep 26th 2014
107
I don't have friends, so I tried to solo those missions.
Sep 26th 2014
109
      ha, yeah -- we had a 28, 26, and 23; they were all 15m or less
Sep 26th 2014
110
      Pay attention to the elemental modifier.
Sep 26th 2014
111
           yup, my flame shotgun was one-hit killing shield Harpies
Sep 26th 2014
112
                I finally soloed two Queens missions. Definitely the hardest experience
Oct 01st 2014
139
Blues and Purps to drop Blues and Purps starting next week
Sep 26th 2014
113
I want to do the raid on PS4.
Sep 26th 2014
114
I'm down. I'm close to being ready for it.
Sep 28th 2014
125
Yeah, just hit me up when you see me on, and I'm down.
Oct 01st 2014
133
      Man, I'm two ascendant shards away from level 28
Oct 01st 2014
136
I'm down and sending friend request

126
      I'm ready.
Oct 01st 2014
134
Raid down
Sep 27th 2014
115
but tell us about the gear
Sep 28th 2014
117
      The raid gear is the best
Sep 28th 2014
121
           wkends are best for me / too many of my friends are 25 or less right now
Sep 28th 2014
123
                I'm at 25 and 4/5ths trying to get better shit
Sep 28th 2014
124
WOAH!! it cannot be overstated how shitty the Crucible is!
Sep 28th 2014
116
oh yeah finally got sick of it all, just started sitting down every life...
Sep 28th 2014
118
I'm gonna let you rant, but that shit is fun, bro.
Sep 28th 2014
119
      Nope, its trash
Sep 28th 2014
120
      You just mad I blinked behind yo back with the shotty.
Sep 28th 2014
122
      cosign.. The crucible is a lot of fun...
Sep 29th 2014
127
Yup, I still suck at anything multiplayer
Sep 29th 2014
128
I'm ILL at Strikes but weak as hell in the Crucible.
Sep 29th 2014
129
      Step y'all game up
Sep 29th 2014
130
           I mean, I *know* I always suck at multi for the 1st hour or two
Sep 29th 2014
131
raided up to the final battle checkpoint last night -- super fun
Oct 01st 2014
132
realizing once you get to 25 or 26, you HAVE TO play with others
Oct 01st 2014
135
      I actually just picked up a random invite in the Tower for the raid
Oct 01st 2014
138
      yeah I got a rando invite in the tower last night
Oct 02nd 2014
140
there needs to be a OK meet up spot on the Tower
Oct 02nd 2014
141
Random people is your best bet
Oct 02nd 2014
142
you can find me by the Cryptarch trying to kick the balls off the cliff
Oct 02nd 2014
144
Kinda getting stale now
Oct 02nd 2014
143
I'm kinda relieved it's mainly daily / weekly events pulling me on
Oct 02nd 2014
145
I'm almost there.
Oct 02nd 2014
146
      the expansions not coming till december is not good
Oct 02nd 2014
147
           man, i hadn't realized it's only been three weeks.
Oct 02nd 2014
148
ok I'm dumb but I'm a lvl 20 how the hell do i get rare armor etc.
Oct 03rd 2014
149
You need armor with light rating
Oct 03rd 2014
150
basically you need blue (rare) armor pieces
Oct 03rd 2014
151
I tried Vault of Glass last night
Oct 03rd 2014
152
Vault of Glass is so fun, they need MORE content like that
Oct 03rd 2014
153
A Firefight mode would probably eliminate the loot cave urge too.
Oct 03rd 2014
154
Finally beat Aetheon.
Oct 04th 2014
162
cracked level 24
Oct 04th 2014
155
that blue to purple jump is the worst part of the game
Oct 04th 2014
156
      without help I dunno how I'd have even gotten these purples
Oct 04th 2014
157
      I made Vanguard rank + marks via Bounties and Strike playlist, but yeah
Oct 04th 2014
158
           I bought all my gear too. Leveled up my FWC rep
Oct 04th 2014
159
      A week??? I did it in two hours with the loot cave (RIP).
Oct 04th 2014
160
           i loot caved for like 10 minutes. nigga felt too much shame to continue
Oct 04th 2014
161
                Don't feel too much shame when I Iook and my worst problem is that
Oct 04th 2014
163
                     gotdammit
Oct 05th 2014
164
                          oh...dont trip....them shards, nigga..them shards
Oct 05th 2014
165
                               You get crazy shards from the raid
Oct 05th 2014
166
this exotic hand cannon quest got me tight
Oct 10th 2014
167
if you're just 26, you're ready to go on the Vault of Glass
Oct 11th 2014
168
First DLC is next month
Oct 12th 2014
169
every body involved with the PvP needs to be fired
Oct 12th 2014
170
I enjoy it more in the Iron Banner.
Oct 12th 2014
171
totally agree
Oct 12th 2014
173
i dunno, ive actually fallen in love with crucible
Oct 13th 2014
178
How do you feel about the game after a month
Oct 12th 2014
172
really good
Oct 12th 2014
174
RE: really good
Oct 12th 2014
175
      thanks, I'll give it a shot
Oct 13th 2014
176
I'm still having hella fun actually now that I've learned how the legend...
Oct 13th 2014
177
I haven't touched it in weeks now. Been enjoying the new releases lately
Oct 13th 2014
179
error code: marionberry
Oct 17th 2014
180
to the Warlocks addicted to self-res on the Raids: knock it off.
Oct 23rd 2014
181
I completed the raid after 3 tries.
Oct 23rd 2014
182
Have you done the Weekly Nightfall?
Oct 23rd 2014
183
      Yeah I make sure to do all of the the daily and weekly tasks
Oct 27th 2014
189
      I haven't tried one yet because I've been Level 27 for 3 weeks.
Oct 29th 2014
191
           i hit level 28 before ever touching a raid
Oct 30th 2014
192
           easiest way to get shards is doing the Daily missions on 28
Oct 30th 2014
194
Yo, Xur got that Suros Auto Rifle for sale this weekend... MUST COP
Oct 24th 2014
184
copped this morning, it's obscene what an advantage it'd be in PvP
Oct 24th 2014
185
      yeah don't upgrade the Suros if you play a lot of PVP...
Oct 24th 2014
186
           think I'mma push it as a PvP weapon or not; got the Dead Orbit Dr. Nope....
Oct 24th 2014
187
           It's worth the upgrade. I know some people don't think the slower RoF
Oct 26th 2014
188
                yeah i did the upgrade (couldn't resist)
Oct 30th 2014
193
thanks for the help with the weekly Laz.
Oct 29th 2014
190
They have definitely stepped up the difficulty with the weekly
Oct 30th 2014
195
      yeah I helped Aeon with it a little later. steveotron joined too.
Oct 30th 2014
196
           did a 2-man vex nightfall with steve this morning, that was a grind lol
Nov 01st 2014
216
fuck crucible
Oct 31st 2014
197
abandoned the same bounty this morning + Im up to like 60 crucible marks
Oct 31st 2014
198
that is exactly it.....i LOATHE that radar for that exact reason
Oct 31st 2014
200
      leveling a legendary weapon that keeps the radar active during aim.
Oct 31st 2014
208
The Invective bounty is actually easier than the rest.
Oct 31st 2014
202
      been told the exact same thing by a dude on my friend's list
Oct 31st 2014
204
      Yahp! Invective bounty ain't give me much trouble compared to others
Oct 31st 2014
205
      I'm sure it helps to have better weapons
Oct 31st 2014
206
      more to the point ---> lots of weapons (+ subclasses) are just useless
Oct 31st 2014
207
           man I always figured the good scouts would fire from hip
Nov 02nd 2014
222
      nope Super Good Advice is a stupid easy Energy farm.
Oct 31st 2014
209
      Yeah, Super Good Advice was easier, I forgot.
Nov 01st 2014
211
      I like Super Good Advice; when you get ammo return, it's a room clearer
Nov 01st 2014
212
      when I got a new exotic bounty today, fucking SGA wasn't an option
Nov 02nd 2014
219
      yeah invective was a cinch.
Nov 01st 2014
215
Exotic Hemlet Engram's at Xur's spot this week....
Oct 31st 2014
199
RE: Exotic Hemlet Engram's at Xur's spot this week....
Oct 31st 2014
201
Xur's been a punk, selling the same Titan chest 3 wks running now
Oct 31st 2014
203
      bought 3 exotic helmet engrams hoping for Mask of the Third Man
Nov 01st 2014
210
           I got patience and time on a raid
Nov 01st 2014
213
                patience and time is so good
Nov 01st 2014
214
                     I got the icebreaker in a raid, should I get the p&t too?
Nov 01st 2014
217
                          i would say yeah, i wouldnt want to have to choose. theyre both awesome
Nov 02nd 2014
218
finally did the raid, and finished it, shoutout to celery and crew
Nov 02nd 2014
220
that was a ton of fun, first time I've done it all in one sitting
Nov 02nd 2014
224
      ha! that was on hard? shiiiiit
Nov 07th 2014
236
finally got my first purple
Nov 02nd 2014
221
Question
Nov 02nd 2014
223
now you're on the hunt for purples.
Nov 02nd 2014
225
      lmao, basically
Nov 02nd 2014
226
      RE: now you're on the hunt for purples.
Nov 02nd 2014
227
damn, i think I'm done for a while... AW is out in a few hours...
Nov 03rd 2014
228
man this game is so stingy with giving out good guns
Nov 05th 2014
229
purchase them if they don't drop
Nov 05th 2014
230
I have two exotic snipers PnT and Icebreaker
Nov 05th 2014
231
      there ARE fixed drops like rep rank + weekly nightfall
Nov 05th 2014
232
           I love FWC guns
Nov 06th 2014
233
           I think New Monarchy has the best weapons. I only do factions for
Nov 07th 2014
234
                yup, but I keep other weapons for element damage on weekly / nightfalls
Nov 07th 2014
235
                     anybody trying to run the raid lemme know.
Nov 07th 2014
237
                          Add me
Nov 08th 2014
238
right when I say this....
Nov 10th 2014
239
cannot be understated: maxed out icebreaker makes gods of men
Nov 12th 2014
240
icebreaker is just stupid, right?
Nov 12th 2014
241
lol yo
Nov 16th 2014
243
icebreaker is great but hate putting away Suros...
Nov 12th 2014
242
      shadow price is a beast
Nov 16th 2014
244
2.5GB patch notes
Nov 17th 2014
245
10 bounty slots is nice...
Nov 17th 2014
246
HUD update seems oddly unnecessary to me, otherwise meh
Nov 18th 2014
251
wait..they "accidently" nerfed all exotics in this patch?
Nov 17th 2014
247
my bad...(link)
Nov 17th 2014
248
I definitely felt odd not being able to do the weekly strike on my own.
Nov 18th 2014
249
balancing their PvP is just nigh impossible, seems like another symptom
Nov 18th 2014
250
exotics to be restored on next weekly update....hmmmm
Nov 18th 2014
252
hmmmmm
Nov 19th 2014

267
Iron Banner was fun... i just need a 30 helmet now...
Nov 25th 2014
266

Nov 25th 2014
268
hahaha...they need to allow use of glimmer to purchase ALL
Nov 25th 2014
269
if anyone wants some Plasteel Plating (Titan armor shards), lemme know

281
      yeah, fucking finally got to 29
Dec 01st 2014
285
      right, not having 5 level 28 friends should not be a penalty
Dec 01st 2014
286
           I'm not proud of how I completed the level 30 Raid; randos + checkpoints
Dec 01st 2014

           If your rank is "stuck," then you're wearing a faction mark/armband/cape
Dec 04th 2014
302
                oh snap I just checked my cloak went to war cult
Dec 04th 2014

Dec 10th 2014
318
      personally i love the game, so any extension of what i already spend
Dec 10th 2014
319
      if you have the game, you'll need the season pass
Dec 10th 2014
320
      ^^^ this. all this.
Dec 11th 2014
332
      Nope
Dec 10th 2014

Dec 10th 2014

I got off the Destiny bus here
Dec 11th 2014

Dec 10th 2014

how I understood it....
Dec 10th 2014
323
that's how I understood it, too, but the biggest junkie I run with said....
Dec 10th 2014
327
      well, you can trade them. I got those wings tho #SWAGBITCH
Dec 12th 2014
341
and legendaries are just worthless right?
Dec 10th 2014
324
has there been any clarification on 'evolving' weapons?
Dec 10th 2014
326
more or less; if they're not leveled, definitely worthless.
Dec 10th 2014
328
      it's weird. Bungie made this really fun game
Dec 10th 2014
331
I figured this would be a good time to get out
Dec 10th 2014
329
After last night I'm hooked back in HARD!!!!
Dec 11th 2014
334
see, I've gotten good gear, I'm just sad my old stuff is redundant now
Dec 11th 2014
335
      it's a grinders paradise
Dec 11th 2014
336
           it shouldnt really take that long to upgrade new gear...
Dec 11th 2014
337
                nah, the 29 to 31 grind is identical, that's what's annoying
Dec 11th 2014
338
                that shit too
Dec 11th 2014
340
                I'm kinda pissed, b/c the jump from 29 to 30+ is so long and gated
Dec 11th 2014
339
aight, so who cashed out w/ xur?
Dec 12th 2014
342
bought them wings, flipped my No Backups + Armamentarium

Downed Crota's End sunday night
Dec 22nd 2014
350
Raid experience from this weekend finally cured me of this game, I think
Jan 05th 2015
351
I think cheesing is fine once you've done it a few times.
Jan 05th 2015
352
and the crazy part is the Templar wasn't even hard!
Jan 05th 2015
354
      I've had a love/hate relationship with this game
Jan 06th 2015
355
           you can cheese the nightfall this week too...
Jan 06th 2015
356
                yeah, and Ice Breaker only makes it that much easier
Jan 06th 2015
357
                     destinylfg is really great for finding raid groups...
Jan 07th 2015
359
                          you not the only one to not have Icebreaker
Jan 08th 2015
361
                               haha.. yeah Dragon breath is dope, but no lock on :(
Jan 08th 2015

this is the first understandable argument against cheesing i've read.
Jan 07th 2015

They just leaked the window of release plans for Destiny

Here's the expansion info:
Jan 12th 2015
364
      I'm guessing full $60, it's Destiny 2 basically
Jan 12th 2015

you guys gotta get into PvP man.

Getting it in tonight 18GB download/install had me waiting until today to play. Hopefully it'll take me longer to finish.

BTW, anyone from OKPlayer interested in joining up in a fire team? On Xbone?

I'm still trippin' off how it has that good campaign feel, and you see random people just drop in outta nowhere playing the same game/AI you are.

Cant play PVP yet, but it's bungie, so I'm sure it dope.

It isn't Halo....and that's okay. But that solid feel, like Halo...this game has.

Game still plays well and I'm sure bungie has all types of DLC ahead to keep it interesting.

You jumpin the gun before the shark...

This game is good money.

> same enemies over and over

Can be repetitive, true...but the perks make up for that to me.

>story is trash

I see the story as being vague as hell so they can build on it with expansions.

Right now it is blah, but I'm sure they get good writers to build on it, it will become more interesting over time.

>limited open world

See expansions....only scratching surface on playable universe.

they can and will add in other planets, moons, asteroids and even other soular systems, and I'm sure they will eventually make sense of what the darkness is with more playable areas...

I can see peoples gripes on this game, no doubt, but it's fun to me and its MILES better than Titanfall.

but am glad they made it that if you buy the 360 download, you get the XOne download free. He got both of them now. I'm still waiting on my PS4 copy to come via amazon. I should have done the 2 day shipping to get it on release but I opted for the plain free shipping this time. Dagnabbit.

In response to Reply # 24


  

          

Comcast took me up to 105 back in July because of "my loyality". I think it's due to Google sniffing around in the Atlanta area. 8 years ago I started paying $42 for 10mbs. Today I'm still paying $42 for 10x the speed.

14. "so far Strike missions, Titan class are my favorites"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

last thing I did last night was the Strike mission on the moon. I feel like the first thing I do when I log on again is run it back another time (plus there's a bounty related to it that I want to fill).

I have three characters built out past level 5 (been running with different groups) and the insane running in, launching, and ground pounding with the Titan is the most satisfying. Plus the melee bonus fits my style of play. Besides that the Hunter is really fun with its big power and the throwing knives are stupid fun, even if their recharge was a little less helpful on the build I was playing.

Awesome game. I expect to have three different level 20s to start the raids with before too long.

everything about the story/lore/organization sort of stinks, but I also love how this game doesn't hold your hand at all in a Dark Souls kind of way while also presenting some very easy to understand mechanics rather than some super complex stuff. you just play Destiny, and it plays you back, and any of the missions on Hard are a fucking blast. My Titan is working its way to Level 21 but I might go back and work on the Defender subclass, or level up a Warlock/Hunter.

In response to Reply # 28


  

          

Destiny is geared toward being more social and balanced.

They have similar settings. Borderlands takes itself less seriously and manages to be funny sometimes.

They're trying to be different games, though. Borderlands is FPS Diablo. Destiny is FPS WoW.

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

raids drop next week gonna try em out as soon as they do. No doubt they'll be hard as hell and we prob wont make it through the first time but I'd love to take a stab at it.

Once you hit 20 there is something called "light" on your gear and the more of it you have the the further you can level up past 20. This is needed if you want to do harder content.

Looks like for now doing the strike playlist on harder settings is the easiest way to achieve this.

In response to Reply # 32


  

          

The best items I have at lvl 14 are from the Moon Strike, running it a second time was totally worth it. I keep playing lower levels with friends, so I haven't hit 20 yet, but once I do I'mma just run Strikes till the raids come out. Might patrol some to get Vanguard level, too, since some cool gear seems connected to that.

But yeah, just the difference between a blue item and a green item is HUGE.

I like doing the bounties. Most games have challenges, but I like being able to pick the ones I want and the rewards are worthwhile.

Obviously, there's a lot u can do as far as customization with your armor, abilities and weapons. U have meaningful options. U don't look like everyone else and u are really leveling up the weapons instead of just adding the same attachments.

The Strikes are pretty challenging, although I'm pissed that I lost connection to the server, right near the end. U really have to use some strategy and teamwork. U may even have to change weapons during the mission and I like that u change them out on the fly

I've been gettin destroyed online, but it's a lot different than playing against the AI and cats are a lot more powerful; I just got level up and get more reps in.

I can't say it's the greatest in anything, but it's solid single player, co-op and multiplayer.

I really wish there was some kind of hot button for your secondary weapon. I'm a Titan so I rock a shotgun most of the time but there are moments like the Venus strike where you TOTALLY need a Fusion or Sniper rifle and it sucks having to "pause" a game that's unpausable and let the icons load in for a second before you can find the right gun and get back to action.

Because some of the armor perks are tied to weapon types, or the Strength / Discipline difference can affect style of play. I figure it will be the raids that really tell on this, because according to what they're saying full team strategy will be key.

42. "I can't decide if I like the Titan Defender subclass"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

just started using it tonight, and it was a big adjustment. It's obvious you have to be very strategic about when to use the dome shield, but I can't answer when that right moment is. The problem is that you're safe in the shield, and it lasts quite a while, but you can't shoot out of it. And enemies can penetrate it, so if you just put it up where you're cornered, you still run into the problem of things like Hive Knights just running in to melee kill you anyway.

I had *mild* success using it as a decoy, popping it right in front of the Strike Boss characters, in the open, so that character just shot at me endlessly, freeing my teammates up to move around. That worked sorta okay, but while that happened I just stood there and contributed nothing. On a few maps, I found actually useful spots, where you could duck in to avoid damage, then duck out to pull off power shots. I'm assuming with communication, that's what will happen in the bigger missions.

But yeah, then the other thing is once you use the shield, it takes a looong time to come back, unless you're in a good Orb of Light enemy spawn. So you can just pop it, have it be a total waste, then have to wait another 4 minutes to get it back. And you don't even soak up the occasional nice kill in-between.

I'm hoping the deeper I get in the skill tree, the more useful it gets, but right now it's a big adjustment (and a little less fun feeling) stepping off the Striker subclass. Just adjusting to the non-codex build, where you don't get the extra armor and movement, is really something...

Game stays awesome, though, most fun I've had with a video game since I can't remember when.

It starts off lackluster until you build it up. Now its awesome and have saved team mates countless times.

You gain a bonus shield while inside, so i lure them in and I shotgun or melee them to death and they hardly hurt me. There are also other perks later on in the skill tree that allows you and your team to gain bonus damage every time they pass through it.

45. "yeah, I read up on it -- real perks seem to hit on the 3rd tier"
In response to Reply # 44


  

          

Very interested in the Orb of Light generation, because one of the first early uses I found was against Phogoth (the Moon Strike boss, th chained ogre) where you could pop the shield in an open space, then Phogoth only targeted me. I could just hold his attention for 30s (45s if I get that next perk, which apparently also starts counting against your 4m regen time), and if I was dropping Orbs of Light every time he fired against me? Sheeeeeit.

Then yeah, looks like you can build out a strength-based short-range melee monster with the punch overshield, or a dome shield damage sponge who perks teammates, which could really amplify with Intellect boosts and a team smart enough to utilize the perks.

I think I'mma stay on Defender until I max it out, then round out Striker. Hit about 19-1/3 last night, got on to the Strike playlists, so I'll be looking to join on bigger runs over the weekend. Still have the stoy on the 1st mission on Mars lol, might just wrap that up to hit 20, but Strikes are really where it's at.

I'm missing Amplify (Storm Fist raises special meter, which sounds fantastic), Transfusion (Storm Fist regens health, again, dope), Codex VI (whatever) and Juggernaut (shield after sprinting). I played a Vanguard (coincidence?) in Mass Effect so Titan was an easy choice for me and I've been scared to try out Defender as a result, but I'm curious if working on the Defender has given any hint as to how you unlock the third subclass? Or if that's tied to some raid/Light stuff at a later date.

Part of me wonders if the "locking in" of fully leveled up subclasses is the key. I.E. I choose all my subsets for Striker and Defender, lock them in, and that creates my overall Titan? That sounds too cool to be true.

49. "I don't know anything about a 3rd sub + it's jarring to go to Defender"
In response to Reply # 47


  

          

Here you are with a nice, high-ish level Strike Titan that can just wade into the middle of enemies and tear shit up, then you switch to Defender and all of a sudden you can't double jump, or even throw a grenade. Then once you get the dome shield, it doesn't help with any kind of damage, and it definitely takes some adjusting just how to strategically use it and what enemies will kill you when you pop it anyway (i.e. KNIGHTS). Oh and you might not realize it, but those Codex skills make a difference. JEEZ my Defender felt slow and useless when I first switched.

But then right after the dome shield you get a punch that if it kills, puts an overshield on you, so you're good wading back into masses, encouraged to do it even. Pretty soon the dome shield is helping you regen when you stand in it. Up next for me is the dome shield giving damage perks and the overshield resulting in reload and stability bonuses (I think?). Anyway, once the Defender starts ramping up, it starts feeling a lot better, and just one big light punch feels less necessary. Since I'm mainly interested in the Strike playlist right now, it's co-op nature feels good. Oh and right away the Defender grenades are better, that did help me early on.

I don't know anything about the locking in or 3rd subclass. My plan was to max Defender, then max Striker, hopefully have a flexible offense/defense build. And yeah, I was a Vanguard player, too lol. Right away I knew I wanted the class designed to wade into enemies with. I get so bored trying to hang back while other dudes cause all the ruckus lol.

Im early on in the campaign but it's fun. The story is indeed boring and formulaic as shit which is a disappointment considering how much I like the first Halo trilogy story. Fortunately, the gameplay is more than making up for it. Im def ready to try some raids tomorrow.

Took me awhile but I'm on light level 24 and got enough vanguard marks and rep to get me the legendary chest.

The only complaint I have about it is that when a purple drops and you turn it in at the tower you'll sometimes get a green or blue in its place. If a color drops for you then you should always be able to get that color at least when you turn it in, not lower. Thats mmo 101 shit right there.

Having fun though and can't wait til more content drops. Got to the point where we can 2 man the lvl 24 strikes without it being that hard at all.

Can not wait to get into the 6 man raids. Hopefully they add better boss fight mechanics than just throw a boss in the middle of the room and flood you with adds.

I was also getting disconnected a lot, which meant I played parts over and over again which was annoying as hell (seems like that got fixed with the most recent patch though).

recommended level is 26

keep in mind each level you are lower than the required level you get a 20% decrease in damage and you also take 20% more damage.

There are 8 bosses in the raid

As of now one one has beaten the second boss lol
I love it!

In response to Reply # 62
Tue Sep-16-14 06:25 PM by celery77

  

          

I was kinda contemplating upgrading my lowest level blue (which is an 18, either gloves or legs, can't remember) because it seems like the level cutoff is what determines the gear's real value, so I was thinking I could upgrade as aggressively as possible (my blue chest piece is level 20 right now). Dunno how that will shake out with the light, though, so I might just upgrade my level 20 blue to a level 20 purple just to make it to 25 ... doing bounties tonight will get me to Vanguard Rank 2, so I'll have to figure it out.

Also tried out the Ward of Dawn effect where you pick up a damage bonus, boy did that suck. You're just so conditioned to treat that shield as an invincible barrier, I just died straight off forgetting all I got was a bigger gun (and I tested the damage a bit with it, the boost didn't even feel that substantial). Then again, I was thinking if you're on a 6-man Raid team, is it possible to double-stack the Ward of Dawns and get double bonuses? Like stack wearable over-shields and damage perk in basically the same bubble, then one trip through will buff you on both? I was gonna experiment with it at some point...

Excited for the raids, like you said the grind is real. The loot stays steady RIGHT up till the end game, which is a bit odd. I've been grinding quite a bit and immediately scrapping 90%+ of items I pick up... still like the shooting though, so I'm not too mad.

Oh yeah, I figured out how to join the clan correctly on bungie.net, too, so hopefully that helps with something.

I got my vanguard chest first because that was the only thing under level 20 I had left.

The next day I ended up getting a legendary head piece which was the exact same one they sell for vanguard marks. This week I can get another vanguard piece which will be boots, then I'll buy the gauntlets off the vendor that appears on the weekend with the strange coins.

The weekly heroic is a bitch though, even at level 22 that damn moon strike is the hardest strike in the game. I'm level 25 and we tried it last night and died like crazy. If you can be on tonight we can try it together I thinking having two titan defenders will help with our shield.

I was a little pleased that I got the first defense upgrade in with just the supply of (Helium?) I had built up playing already, but at the end of that item there's THREE tiers that need helium? Damn, that'll be a bit of a grind, but I like playing the patrols aimlessly, so I'm not even that mad at it.

Might go and buy a mark for another faction, though, so I can grind some points on that now that I hit Vanguard 2...

there is something undeniable about this game.

I'm just not sure what it is.

The story is still dumb. The content still feels hollow.

But there's still something.

It's not just that it's pretty and has solid combat. The last Killzone was pretty and had solid combat and I didn't play that shit again after I beat the campaign.

I'll keep playing Destiny for a minute, though.

I think that the game doesn't force you to do anything is the saving grace.

Story missions getting too repetitive? Play some Crucible. Keep getting bodied in the Crucible? Play some Strikes. Strikes taking too long to finish with the dying ass fools you got paired up with? Do patrols to farm your bounties.

The game does a good job at rewarding you for whatever you choose to do, and that shit is addictive.

-30-
You know it's drama, but it sound real good.

I remember being confused as fuck at the beginning of the game about the Hive and the Fallen fighting against each other in the field. I thought they was the same niggas.

I'm guessing it can only work when there is enough space as determined by the program to materialize.

I seriously finished the game without paying attention to what was going on in regards to the story, because there basically isn't one. Some of the ghost's lines were funny, but other than that I have no clue what was going on. All you have to worry about is killing shit.

In response to Reply # 70


  

          

but this is why

the grind, the struggle, to get better.

It's more of a hard work pays off sort of thing. You just know the more you play the better gear you get and the more content you can clear just to say you did the hardest one. Then you see the rewards that come from it and you want to play even more.

This is the same thing that kept me playing WoW for years.

The story isn't really there, but with a game that survives by releasing more content I think we're seeing just a tiny start of something. I just keep thinking how this is the warm up to shit popping off heavy later in the series.

I sit and work thinking about how I'm gonna farm some more when I get home and try to get a legendary drop lol. It's addicting.

I never played a legit MMO before, but that Borderlands gameplay loop is similar. Get better gear, beat harder enemies, get better gear, beat harder enemies. I got stuck deep in that game because of that shit.

83. "This is why I never have played a MMO/online shooter"
In response to Reply # 75


  

          

I know, just from my offline gaming experience, that I have a very high tendency and addiction for grinding and completion (my RPG clock times prove as much lol) so I've stayed away from the MMO and online shooters because they just continually feed into that behavior. The closest I've ever gotten was in FIFA's online mode (where you accumulate points to buy new player cards and add them to your roster....if the chemistry rating wasn't broken, I can only imagine how many hours I would have sunk into it), but I'm more than ok with just my 300+ hour first time play-throughs of fallout and skyrim lol.

see: dishonored, sleeping dogs, oblivion, skyrim, etc.

stunt casting is such a terrible idea (it adds nothing to the experience) but i guess it sells extra copies or at least convinces the shareholders that it will. it has to keep happening for some reason

In response to Reply # 91


  

          

i don't even know what the desired outcome of stunt casting is. at best the player recognizes the actor and is reminded of their work elsewhere. this doesn't seem to accomplish anything for the game. at worst the actor phones it in and the player wonders why the actor was even hired in the first place. the illusion of the character and/or narrative is broken and the player is taken out of the gaming experience for some amount of time

what's the point?

I managed to get up to 13 strange coins last night, so I'll get some gold equipment on the weekend, and my Striker class is approaching full XP, so I should be able to comfortably switch between subclasses. My purple gun is slowly leveling, too, but I already have the resources to get it at least up to explosive and armor piercing ammo.

I get the feeling that maximizing subclass builds will be key, too. Like some grenades for some spots, some orb bonuses or different perks in others. I've definitely developed different subclass strategies on all the different strikes depending on the level, aside from just the right weapons equipped.

But yeah, I wanna raid, but FIFA 15 downloaded overnight and I think I'll be on that tonight, should be back to raiding soon, though...

106. "Bungie's full comments on upcoming patches"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

On September 9th the Bungie team traded late nights building Destiny for late nights playing Destiny with all of you. We'd looked forward to that day for years, knowing that it would bring millions of fresh eyes into our world and quickly change many of our plans and priorities. We were not disappointed.

In the last two weeks there have been many surprises, bugs, exploits, world firsts, and a whole lot of fun. It's been an amazing time. We think now is a great time to step back and let you all know how we think the game is holding up and to talk about some changes we are contemplating going forward.

We will be patching some of these issues as early as today. Others may not be addressed for a month or two. Stay tuned for updates and thank you for all your feedback online.

Loot

He Who Shall Not Be Named
Long ago during development, the Cryptarch decoded engrams of a given color into gear of that same color. Early in 2014 we added randomness, both for better and worse, to the decrypting process. The result was that end-of-session engram decoding got a lot more exciting and the Cryptarch himself suddenly acquired a personality. Both of these experiences were positive additions to the game.

But we didn't adequately communicate the potential random outcomes of decryption. Players see what looks like the familiar metaphor of item identification, while the Cryptarch thinks he's opening a grab bag of loot. Rage sharding of blues ensues. Expect to see changes to address this soon.

Destiny: The Cave
The social experience of a cave farming run is amazing: the herding to get a team of Guardians all behind the line and firing in the right direction, the rush to grab the loot, the scramble when the panic wave starts, the beckoning glow from inside the cave. The speed at which the community organized around this activity was inspiring and humbling to us.

But shooting at a black hole for hours on end isn't our dream for how Destiny is played. Our hope is that social engagement in public spaces is only one part of the Destiny experience. Expect changes soon which decrease the efficiency of cave farming and correspondingly increase engram drops from completing activities.

Reward Celebration
Growing more powerful by acquiring new upgrades, gear or progression is central to Destiny's player experience. Our goal is to always celebrate when this occurs, both as a reward in and of itself and to communicate to players what is going on.

During development we sometimes prioritized making a system functional over celebrating its rewards, for example:
The Vault of Glass contains highly coveted loot but the actual moment of reward happens without fanfare and can be easily missed.
The lowest level of the Daily Heroic gives great XP and Reputation rewards, but neither of these progressions appears on the postgame screen.

We will slowly be addressing these and other issues going forward.

Social

Voice Communication
Our vision for Destiny is that all players, even matchmade players in the Crucible, Strikes, the Tower or public spaces, be able to communicate with one another in a way that promotes positive socialization. Voice communication is the easy answer, but existing voice paradigms, including those in our own Halo games, have not done enough to protect players from abusive griefing from a minority of players.

Destiny's near-term solution will be to allow players to opt-in to voice communication during matchmade activities. Work on this feature was underway at launch and should be rolled out this year in Strikes and the Crucible.

Activities

Strikes
Strikes are intended to be a fun, combat-filled romp and stomp with a big boss and cool rewards at the end. Better with cooperation, but doable in a pick up group.

Since launch we've tracked down an issue which has made Strikes more challenging than originally designed by both increasing damage taken by players and decreasing the damage inflicted by players on the boss. Expect to see this addressed soon, and for Strikes to become a little less grindy as a result (sorry, Raiders - incoming damage is working as intended in the Vault of Glass).

Balance

Our goal when balancing Destiny is to never have one player choice-- for example a choice of class or weapon-- either be so much better than the alternatives that it is the only valid choice or to be so much worse that it would always be a mistake to choose. When we are successful with this kind of balance the result is a wide set of equally compelling player builds, some of which may be preferred by one player or another but none of which is an absolute right or wrong choice.

Exotic Weapons
Exotic Weapons are designed to look, feel and sound overpowered, but to not actually break the game. We hope these weapons challenge the way players think about their loadouts and expect their idiosyncrasies to sometimes be a little frustrating. We find ourselves wanting to collect them all and hope players feel the same way.

Not all our Exotic Weapons currently live up to this promise. In particular those weapons received from completing exotic bounties including Thorn and Bad Juju have disappointed many of us who have gone through the great effort to obtain them because, despite looking and sounding amazing, they feel underpowered. We're here to offer some advice: don't shard those guns. Their time will come.

Auto Rifles
The Auto Rifle archetype is designed to appeal to players who like to throw up a wall of bullets and not worry if a few miss their target. It is intended to inflict sustained damage at close to medium range, but to lose effectiveness at longer ranges.

Today the Auto Rifle is too effective at long range, even beating Scout and Pulse Rifles in some circumstances. Expect stability and/or damage adjustments to the Auto Rifle to address this in the weeks ahead.

Scout Rifles
Scout Rifles are for players who like to keep their enemies at medium range and hate to miss. They are intended to be an awkward weapon to use at close range but to be dominant-- as long as you land your shots-- at medium and longer ranges.

Scouts just aren't hitting hard enough today when compared to other precision weapons. We'll be addressing this soon.

Shotguns
Shotguns are for those situations where you need to deliver a massive spike of damage, right now, to the thing standing next to you about to do you harm.

Today shotguns are effective beyond their intended range, especially when upgraded with that intention. Expect changes soon to address shotguns which push the envelope of what it means to be close quarters.


Thank you for helping us drive these changes. Keep sharing. Keep talking. We’re watching and listening.

107. "yoooo -- NICE purple loot guaranteed for doing Queen's Kill Orders"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

got a helmet that would have cost me 180 vanguard marks essentially, and a new plate that I equipped just because I liked the way it looked with the Queen symbol better.

Plus the missions weren't bad at all. They're just story missions, so the best strategy is to just save up all your rocket ammo for whatever the final boss is, then immediately on that boss spawn unload the rockets. I completed four Kill Orders last night and multiple times we killed the boss before even a single add spawned in. Too bad I'm not getting Queen rank, I would like one of her marks, but the purple armor I got is pretty dope and should push me to 27 if I level it all...

110. "ha, yeah -- we had a 28, 26, and 23; they were all 15m or less"
In response to Reply # 109


  

          

the only bummer is that it's random what purple piece you get, so I got the helmet, then the chest piece, then the chest piece two more times, and it only recycled into plasteel plating (Titan armor material).

The boss battles WOULD have been hard, because the minions were all super-fierce, but as long as all three of us just opened up with rocket launchers the moment the boss activated, it worked great.

This is a game where I'm adding anyone decent to play with onto the friends list right now, though, because you never know when you'll need a hand lol

111. "Pay attention to the elemental modifier."
In response to Reply # 109


  

          

If you have a secondary (preferably fusion or sniper, getting in close isn't recommended since most enemies are attuned to whatever the assigned element is and do major damage) and heavy weapon with that elemental, you can rip through all the shielded enemies (fuck Shanks!) and take out the bosses way quicker than if you even did the mission on regular easy mode. Did the Mars mission with the giant Fallen general guy dressed in all white and took him out with three sniper headshots.

113. "Blues and Purps to drop Blues and Purps starting next week"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

lol @ the snark in the last comment



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

Item Changes
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...

114. "I want to do the raid on PS4."
In response to Reply # 0


          

Currently a level 27 hunter.

I have like 4 purple and 2 exotic primaries, an exotic secondary, and a purple and exotic heavy.

I bought an exotic engram from the homey Xur and ended up with an exotic helmet, which is pretty nice, but its buff is for the golden gun (extra shot). My Gunslinger and Bladedancer stats are both maxed out, but I prefer Bladedanncer for both PvE and PvP, so I want to buy the exotic helmet that is currently on sale now just for the rader while still aiming the primary.

121. "The raid gear is the best"
In response to Reply # 117


  

          

Better bonuses and they also give you a higher light level.

For example a raid piece may have a bonus that allows you to do extra damage on enemies that you'll find in the raid thus making it easier when you do it again, also allowing you to get through the raid on hard mode (level 30).

Also got a weapon at the end. Apparently they have primary weapons that have solar, void, and arc damage on them just like your secondary normally has.

Very fun experience. Now if I could only find 5 other people that can commit a few hours without having to leave I could run them through this.

I'm at about 27.5 right now, could probably hit 28 if I found enough Ascendant shards. Got the Exotic chest plate this weekend, have a purple gun with all the damage except for the last tier, all armor is purple, both subclasses are maxed.

I wanna raid, but yeah, right now I end up trying to help my friends rank up post-20 when I group with them. Pretty difficult finding six players ready to really work on that raid...

Got that Insurmountable Skullfort the other day.

Was happy about that.

need some good players to raid it up

I started on my other account but now play on XB1 GT: theREALliveguy

Add me.

I can hang with raids as long as players aren't dying all the time and/or know when to revive and when to let their teammates respawn happen on its own, not killing chance for advancement

In response to Reply # 0
Sun Sep-28-14 02:56 AM by celery77

  

          

and here's the thing -- I've played LOTS of multi. I'm the dude that would tell my friends, "I know multiplayer sucks when you just jump in, but give it some time, learn a bit about the game (filter out the assholes), and you'll be fine."

The only thing Destiny has going for it is that I don't need to hear the assholes.

The Crucible (multiplayer) suuuuuuuuuuucks.
It sucks so much.
It's the trashest multi I've ever played.
Oh good god it's so bad.

Basically, every encounter with another player is over before it begins. Oh you got a cool sniper? Well sweet, you're at medium to close range, so you're dead. Oh you just reloaded you're auto so you're ready for a medium to short range encounter? Well the enemy has a Heavy, so you're dead. Oh you just tracked an enemy on your radar and took up a strong position in anticipation of the encounter? Well that enemy is using their super, so you're dead.

I can't even count the number of times that I couldn't get a shot off or didn't know what was happening before I died.

And those moments where I killed another player? Those moments of "accomplishment"? I shot them in the back, or else it was 2v1 so I would get either the assist or the kill, or I had my shotgun at close range and pulled a quick kill. It had NOTHING to do with me being "good" at the game. It was empty, just using either better equipment or better position.

Jesus christ it's TUUUURRRRRRRRRRRRBBBBBBBBLLLL (c)Chuck

(And I have to do a fucking BOUNTY to get an Exotic Weapon for this? Well, I'm prolly just never gonna get that gun...)

It's so bad...
The multi is just dogshit...
It's indefensible...

and every single person that found me (sitting down, doing nothing), then killed me, ended up getting shot and killed by someone else immediately after. So even when a player was literally giving up, sitting down, and conceding to getting shot, it resulted in a 1:1 K/D because the multi is so fucking shitty that the only that matters is getting the drop on the other player.

Oh god it is sooooo traaaaaaash. I was just sitting there, doing nothing! And every player that shot pacifist ME got immediately killed afterwards! 1:1 K/D for shooting a player that's not even playing!

I'm a horrible competitive FPS player. I get bodied so much. Destiny is no different. I stay getting murked, but I stay murking too.

It IS all about getting the drop on somebody.

Everybody can one hit kill anybody. Everybody can one hit kill like three or four people at a time. Even noobs like me. And that shit is so satisfying.

The game is not perfectly balanced moment to moment, but everybody is OP so it's balanced overall. Better players still win more than the unskilled, but everybody who jumps in can compete.

It's actually a great multiplayer experience.

I do really well in it to, and I can admit its trash.

Like, I've done the exotic weapon bounty that forces you to play PvP to complete it. The one where you have to get all these kills with a void weapon and if you die you lose points towards your goal.

It's still an unbalanced mess.

The ONLY reason I even do it is the bounties and hope I get an exotic piece out of it. Other than that, horrible multiplayer.

129. "I'm ILL at Strikes but weak as hell in the Crucible."
In response to Reply # 128


  

          

I'm usually 20-30+ kills ahead of the next closest (and that's alongside probably leading the team in deaths due to my Titan's reckless behavior, Striker or Defender), but in Crucible I've had even a 1:1 K/D MAYBE once. Even in games I go on a 5 or 6 kill streak, I tend to follow that by not getting another kill the rest of the match. My assist game is on point though, I usually lead the team in assists.

131. "I mean, I *know* I always suck at multi for the 1st hour or two"
In response to Reply # 130


  

          

Doesn't matter what game, just takes a few rounds of eating shit to learn things like what's dangerous, what's effective, and what part of maps are better than others. I know I just need to grind at it for a bit, but maaaaan -- it's just sooo unsatisfying even when you kill and so frustrating when you die. It's ambitious to include everyone's class and equipment in the multi, but it definitely does create some balance issues. And in the end I feel like I just need to camp, exploit certain map areas, and avoid encounters with any kind of danger class. I don't like playing multi that way.

At some point I might get the feel for it, but right now it generally takes me about 1.5 rounds before I'm just cussing and running like a maniac, totally unfocused, because I just want the round to end so I can get a random drop before I leave.

Otherwise you're stuck.

Finding ascended shards and whatnot is a pain and the game doesn't match you up with other players to play with for Raids or Heroic daily's and weekly's which makes no sense.

I sincerely hope these updates add something worthwhile cause I am SICK of playing the same levels over and over and not being able to update my defense on my helmet to get more light cause I can't get no damn shards. lol!!!!

More and more, I've been getting random invites as I come across blue players. I've picked up a couple -- some are dudes just wanting a partner, others are low level dudes who want me to carry them through shit. I don't really appreciate those.

And actually, the guy who hit me up last night was smart enough to send me a message that said "Raid?" and that's all I've been wanting to do, so I found that guy up front near the Post Office, waved, pointed, etc. then he invited me into a party and they had five dudes, just needed a sixth, so that worked out perfect.

I've seen that a couple times now, large groups of lvl 26+ guys clustered in the Tower, so I figured people were starting to assemble public raid groups. So yeah, don't be afraid of the public! I'm hoping over time a little bit of culture or etiquette will pop up for players to assemble looking to complete the stuff like you're talking about, because it can be hard getting friends all on the same activity at times.

and ended up doing a couple strikes with two guys


I had success when I was lower level and all my friends were 20+, just finding anyone in the tower that was around my level and inviting them to my fireteam

This way, you can find your RELIABLE players needed for whatever task you're tying to accomplish.

Like by that tree by the gunsmith or some isht!

Go check the spot at the top of every hour to see if cats are there and link up to get it poppin'

Most on my friends list are usual in there own task, so this way frees up for cats available and ready to rock.

143. "Kinda getting stale now"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

Can knock out the raid in less than two hours now. Hard mode is next, but I've done the raid multiple times and NO RAID GEAR has dropped to even help move to 30. And the ONLY way you can get to 30 is by equipping the gear that drops from the raid and upgrading it.

Constant problems still exist. Last night was doing the Nightfall Weekly Strike, the one where if everyone in the fireteam dies you all have to start over from the begining. Get to the last boss, almost kill him, other two members die and I'm the only one left. What happens? A bungie network error (the one that happens to people all the time). Bam, all that work down the drain for nothing.

What keeps me back is the grinding aspect of it thinking I'll get a new weapon or something to that effect.

These cats got a lot to learn from companies like Blizzard who have perfected the loot/grind element of games in which this was sort of based on.

In response to Reply # 143


  

          

I've been playing this game heavier than any game I've played in a LONG time, so having it reach a point where I have just a few things to do, maybe run with friends and chat a bit, is kind of a relief.

Right now, I feel like I'm just prepping for the weekend -- gonna hit Vanguard lvl 5 tonight, see what the random unlock is. Then I'mma wait for the weekend vendor, see what he has for sale, decide then how to spend my Motes of Light or Vanguard Marks. Then I'll just see if friends wanna run anything, and FINALLY get to really playing FIFA and Forza lol.

And I figure I'll keep working daily grinds, prepping for new content. If I need more, start grinding my Warlock character, but I've already played this game more than I have lots of games I own, and did it more socially than anything since TF2 or L4D.

But yeah, starting to max out the content currently available.

147. "the expansions not coming till december is not good"
In response to Reply # 146


  

          

People burnt out already and it's only been 3 weeks.

They should have had more on disc content to keep things interesting until the expansions dropped.

The higher level you get, the more you get that.."what else is there?" feeling and I'm only 26, so I know 28's and 29's are REALLY feelin' that way right about now.

After 2 or 3 months of apathy due to 'been there, done that'...people are gonna be real ho-hum on jumping back in once December rolls around.

Hopefully the updates can add some zest to keep folks interested in the meantime.

Them packs better be CRAZY dope!

150. "You need armor with light rating"
In response to Reply # 149


  

          

other than the standard Intelligence, Discipline, and Strength. There is also gear with light on it. The more light you have across all your armor the more your level will go up.

Start doing strikes at your level and you should get some drops from there, equip them and you'll get up there.

151. "basically you need blue (rare) armor pieces"
In response to Reply # 149


  

          

They will have a light attribute. Sometimes this means you will replace some green armor with better stats or a perk you like, but it's the only way to level.

The reason the level matters is because you pay a 20% penalty for being under-level, so if you're level 21 on a level 22 mission, you'll deal 80% damage and receive 120% damage (you can still beat missions under level, we just did a 28 with a team of 27s last night and it wasn't that bad), but anyway that's why sometimes downgrading stats to gain light is good.

Once you have blue gear, just look at the equip level and that will tell you if it's better or not, so if you get a level 17 blue chest, then you find a level 18 one, regardless of the stats the 18 will max out at a higher light level.

So yeah, start on level 20 strikes, and as you gear up to 22, switch to 22 strikes, you'll get better gear. That will ramp you up to 24, switch to that strike, and then around 24 or 25 you will need exotic (yellow) or legendary (purple) to keep going up, and the grind to find and maximize those is a whole nother thing...

WTF?!

Just figuring out out how to beat it is crazy.
The process that you have to follow is crazy.

Then actually executing the strategy to beat it.
Made it to the last checkpoint but we failed so many times before that.
The loot chests were awesome tho. Found all 3.

In response to Reply # 152


  

          

like, as much as possible.

less giant versions of the same enemies that soak up bullets and kill with one shot.

More teamwork, more switch pressing or unique items defining team roles, more "defend a patch of ground."

and actually another thing I'm a bit miffed that they just missed on was replicating the old Firefight mode from some of the Halos. I loved that mode. I know it was fairly tedious to some, but I loved it. Had a single Firefight session go damn near two hours once, it was some of the most fun I ever had playing Halo.

But yeah, the complexity of Vault of Glass needs to be the model for all new content going forward.

That shit was indeed fun and insane. I have to give it up to whoever tried it out the first time and had to painfully figure it out step by step. Even knowing it and then executing was still difficult, but I really loved the cooperation needed to pull of the feat.

if it wasn't for the Vanguard vendor, I would have never gotten started down the purple route. 13 strange coin is a pretty easy hurdle to clear, too, and that will get you a yellow piece of armor.

but then once you get that gear, the leveling of it, too...

The only downside is you get pissed when you get shards instead of gear during the raid because your raid set helps you reach 30

at 26 its practically impossible. im trying to grind a bit and get my armor up so maybe i can hit 28 (im about half way) but im basically down to needing ascendant shards... starting to get impatient/frustrated.

also in need of new content for this shit. the only thing that interests me at this point is the vault of glass and i KNOW i'm not ready for that shit.

168. "if you're just 26, you're ready to go on the Vault of Glass"
In response to Reply # 167


  

          

the only thing you CAN'T be on the Vault of Glass is under-leveled, because then you just can't do enough damage and die too quickly. As long as you're on level, you can work through it.

If you want it to go MORE smoothly, though, what you need is weapon gear you really like, and it helps to have both subclasses leveled out and at a point where you really know how to use them. I play Titan, so I'll switch between shield and striker depending on the exact encounter, and I have all perks available so I can fully tweek my setup to work how I like. But yeah, first time I tried it I didn't have a sub-weapon I liked that much, then I unlocked a nice shotgun that made it a lot easier after that.

It's doable as long as you're 26+, just know that it is hard and you have to commit a few hours to make progress in it. It also basically requires at least one player that has done it and knows the strategies, or you can try looking online and learning that yourself. Having someone who's done it really pays, though...

170. "every body involved with the PvP needs to be fired"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

I've tried. I've genuinely jumped in, tried to maintain a positive attitude, and it is like completing a 16 hour shift to even get through three consecutive games.

Where are the midrange encounters? Do midrange spaces not even exist? I know long range ones don't, the levels have made that clear. If you're foolish enough to show up without an Auto-Rifle, not much to do besides use your subweapon and pretend like your primary doesn't even exist. If you have the wrong sub-class, forget it, you are at a disadvantage from the moment you enter the game.

It's not just the balance issues, or the frequent encounters that end with one shot where you never see the enemy (and there's no kill cam), it's the fucking level design. Yeah, I've seen a few sniper spots where people are getting kills -- they're just camp spots. And then people start spawn camping, or at least it definitely feels like I'm dying to two people the moment I enter the game.

There are soooooo many problems with the PvP it's hard to no where to even begin -- bad levels, bad balance, bad game-modes which make groups semi-invincible, which really falls back a lot on the bad levels. Oh man ... I've sat down, fully built up in my mind, "This is the time I conquer multi" multiple times now, and I have to quit before I can even finish the third match.

People were mad about the loot? I'm mad about the unplayabley shitty multiplayer.

171. "I enjoy it more in the Iron Banner."
In response to Reply # 170


  

          

my hand cannon is (semi) useful and just in general I can tell that the perks on my weapons are coming into effect.

I've never been a huge PVP guy in FPS games anyway, the last one I played with any real gusto was Killzone 2 because of the awesome mode shuffle mechanic they had (which every FPS afterward really should have stolen the way they stole CoD's XP system). Destiny's is fine enough, without the crucible bounties and stuff like Iron Banner I likely wouldn't ever touch it but for me it has little to do with the quality of the PVP. I just don't enjoy playing these types of games competitively, I lose my bearings too frequently without a 3rd person perspective.

173. "totally agree"
In response to Reply # 170


  

          

I mean...at least in Halo...when you got that first bullet hit...you kinda had a chance to turn around, recognize and fight back and *maybe* could win that lil battle.

In Crucible...once that first bullet hits you, it's over. They got the drop...the end.

You have no idea where it's coming from and die instantly as soon as you even try to jump and look to see where it's coming from.

I like the game for PvE...that PvP...unless they adjust it, they can keep that shit.

I get that they don't wanna make it JUST LIKE halo...but got dammit, man...the reason people loved halo was because of the PvP. Social or competitive. It was just fun and had ABSOLUTE balance.

Crucible is just a game mode that ain't got it right now....

Again...hopefully they adjust that shit, 'cause it's broke as FUCK.

We see through all that boo boo like it's ghost shit... (c) Quelle Chris

178. "i dunno, ive actually fallen in love with crucible"
In response to Reply # 170


  

          

i really struggled early on, as i usually do in PvP games, but after spending a lot of time in it (out of pure necessity due to having to kill 300 guardians or something with a special damage weapon and die as little as possible to clear a task for my exotic gun) i've figured out a lot and gotten the pace and strategy.

it does suck that some classes and sub classes are way more suited for PvP - nothing more frustrating than having that room clearing move titans do just shut down your entire fireteam in Control - but since having to spend so much time in crucible, I've ended up learning the maps which is a huge deal, and also learning how to read your admittedly shitty radar. theres a few maps, like the one on mars, where there are ostensibly some sniper positions but im just not that good at it - i hate that map and i end up camping, no shame.

i dont know how people use pulse rifles and scout rifles in crucible but some folks are beasts with it. gimme an auto rifle, my legendary shotgun and a machine gun and im ready to do damage, my K/D ratios have been climbing steadly in the past few weeks.

i also personally think they should make iron banner a permanent feature in crucible. iron banner's been extremely fun.

174. "really good"
In response to Reply # 172


  

          

I mean I haven't played nearly as much as some of you guys posting here but ive been enjoying it. Taking it slow has probably helped me not burn out.

I just got to lvl 20 last week and just reupped my gold this weekend, so I'm starting the strikes. Lots of fun there, I love having a good team all shooting down the waves of enemies.

Haven't tried PvP, I'm kinda scared of getting smoked by not being leveled. I noticed how hard it can be just against higher ranked enemies, it just seemed like crucible would piss me off.

I'm a good shooter, hunter with the golden gun, fav weapon is probably scout rifle right now. It reminds me of my favorite halo weapon dmr. But I got the blue hand cannon so I've been using that, just don't like the lack of range but its like one shot on all those little pussy dregs and vandals.

Favorite thing so far is headshotting cabals and watching their helmets roll around. Especially those bitch ass phalanx.

just for clarity, level/weapon perks are only relevant in the Iron Banner event which seems like it's going to be a once-a-month kind of thing. Regular PVP matches are normalized. Your weapons and armor still have their perks but everyone has the same basic defense and the differences between one gun and another of the same type seem to be how they'd be in any other shooter; fire rate, damage, etc.

But they aren't as beefy as they are offline; the difference in damage from PVE to Iron Banner to Crucible for my hand cannon on head shots roughly breaks down to: 1,500 damage in PVE, 200 damage in Iron Banner and 80 damage in Crucible (making it practically useless since you can get way more shots off with an auto rifle).

Xbox live hasn't been working since I tried to get on last night.

I tried the heroic strike by myself and couldn't take out the 3 22 axis minotaurs. Most I got was like half off one dudes bar. If I was 22 I could do it alone but not at 20. I got my vex bounty by hand cannoning the axis hobgoblins

181. "to the Warlocks addicted to self-res on the Raids: knock it off."
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

you know why generating Orbs of Light, even if you can't pick them up, is awesome? Because it allows your teammates to use THEIR super, which will generate Orbs of Light for YOU!

Just got stuck on the final raid boss with two Warlocks who were swearing that the self-res was the best thing for them to be using, because it allowed them to skip the 30 second cooldown for reviving when they died (my suggestion to stop dying so much seemed to fall on deaf ears). Finally talked one of them into switching to a build that dropped orbs, showed them how I could get my super (Titan domeshield) up while my last shield was still standing. And they saw how quickly this allowed them to get THEIR super, in one big reciprocal cycle.

Orbs: they're for everyone.

which is the 72 clip, high rate of fire auto with no impact (that kicks like a mule). The slower fire, higher impact auto seems waaaaay better, because you land every shot and can crit way better. The high rate of fire is good for really big bosses, but jeez sometimes I just wanna throw it at small enemies like psions or shanks..

But then Xur's Suros had the +2 agility and always on radar I believe? I've been using a handcannon with those two perks in PvP and it's kinda nuts how much it makes it feel more playable.

it took us, what, 3 or 4 tries? one of us didn't have any void weapons at all if I recall (and Aeon's Titan was level 26) so after about eight tries that ended almost immediately steve hipped us to the "stand at the top of the cave and just shoot from there until it's over" and even that took us two or three tries.

Finally hit level 28 after buying some vanguard gear though, would like to give the Nightfall a shot sometime soon, or even the raid.

its nice now though 'cause steve explained to me that we get a xp boost on everything we do until the tuesday reset, which is pretty awesome, got tons of new gear i need to level up.

197. "fuck crucible"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

Maybe I just keep getting stuck with shit teams, but I keep having awful experiences with it

The only reason I tried it was because I had an exotic weapon bounty that said I had to get a +25 spread. Which would be easy if I had a decent team so that when I get 4 hits in on a dude and he kills me with his one shot exotic weapon every time, someone could follow up with a kill

But everyone wants to go do their own thing. Not a good experience. I abandoned the bounty and don't think I'll be going back any time soon

which adds up to something like 30 losses at this point.

I was in a game last night where one dude on the opposite team was just crushing, then after matchmaking the next round that guy got switched on to mine. So I decided to follow him a bit, see what his strategy was. The strat? He crouched behind a high traffic wall, didn't move so he wouldn't trigger radar, then shotgunned people as they ran past. Bungie has managed to make effect PvP strategy go all the way back to "sit in one place, shoot people as they come by." It's like I'm playing Doom II all over again.

The more I think about it, the more I think it might be the radar that's really underlying a lot of it, too. The whole "sector v. precise location" thing really makes a huge difference from Halo, because you can't know exactly where the guy in what sector is located, so he can do bullshit stuff like sit there with a shotgun and just wait...

but yeah, you need the right gear, then once you have the right gear, you need to run super cheesy strats, and even if you do all that, you might not have the right build to maximize those strats etc. It's just a mess.

can''t wait for PVP purposes even if I'm doing about 6,000 less damage per mag compared to my Devil You Know hand cannon in PVE.

202. "The Invective bounty is actually easier than the rest."
In response to Reply # 197
Fri Oct-31-14 01:19 PM by Steve O Tron v2

          

At first I really hated Crucible too. I thought something was wrong because it felt like I was getting instantly killed while it took me forever to take someone down, but I had to honestly just keep playing until I got better. I probably float around a 2.0 K/D ratio now. The biggest thing is just learning the maps and how to use the map and vision to your advantage. I also happen to just play Control now because there's an objective and it makes people's moves predictable. Again, that just comes with time and it eventually becomes intuitive.

If you think the Invective bounty is hard, you don't want to ever do the Thorn one. You need to earn 500 points in kills with void (5+ for each void kill you get, -2 for every time you get killed regardless of method). As much as I hated it at the time, it honestly made me a better and smarter player. And then there's a ridiculous strike that you also have to complete after.

If you're tried of playing with randoms, though, feel free to invite me on a fireteam and I'll help out.

204. "been told the exact same thing by a dude on my friend's list"
In response to Reply # 202


  

          

Been had that bounty for nearly a month, even had it all the way up to +20 at one point, before two bad rounds completely wiped that out.

I'm just not a camper, never been able to stand in one place and poach kills because of surprise. If that's how the game wants me to play (which it seems like it does), it sucks. I play all kinds of multi -- Halo, CoD, BF, Titanfall, etc. and so on and I have always been able to adapt and live in the top three. This one is sooooo not fun, though, I can barely stick with it to grind Crucible marks....

206. "I'm sure it helps to have better weapons"
In response to Reply # 202


  

          

I'm good on it for a while until I get a purple main and special. Seriously at least 4 hits to get a kill and 29-30 dudes just spray their auto rifle in my general direction and it's over. Head to head is not fair at all. It's all about getting the drop and the sector radar is lame. I'm on at weird times too and so I can't keep doing it. I was getting so pissed I was shouting at the TV and then my wife gets mad and it's all bad. Gotta give it up for a while and build my stock up.

207. "more to the point ---> lots of weapons (+ subclasses) are just useless"
In response to Reply # 206


  

          

You need stability, range, and rate of fire. So Suros Regime? (Which you can HEAR being fired all over the place?) It's dominant -- amazing stability, amazing range, and it STILL keeps the autofire from the hip.

On the other hand, equipping scout rifles is suicidal. The high rate of fire, high kick auto rifle will never work for anything. If your shotgun doesn't have a generous range attribute, you'll probably die to someone with a better range shotgun.

And then even when you track someone on radar, switch to shotgun at the right range, and fire a clean headshot from three feet, it won't matter because that person is a bladedancer and will walk right through it to kill you in one hit. And don't even get me started on the ridiculousness of having 18 different grenades, ONE of which is stupidly superior to all 17 others.

I mean, it's ambitious to let you PvP with your exact, very divergent character build, but that's exactly why it should be no surprise there's major balance issues to be ironed out as a result. And that's without critiquing map design or the radar (which is ever-present, even when sighted, on SOME guns). It really just makes me even more excited for the Master Chief Collection...

In response to Reply # 207


  

          

Like I imagined they would be like the dmr from halo

No?

That sucks if not because it's impossible to hit at close range when scoped

And I loved the dmr, that was my favorite weapon ever

You're right, a lot of balance issues with the pvp

209. "nope Super Good Advice is a stupid easy Energy farm."
In response to Reply # 202


  

          

since it was the first gun I picked, when I don't like my other options I take that one. You just have to raid chests for the initial drop which is a good excuse to farm Relic Iron, then wait for Xur on the weekends to get the gun piece, then kill 500 enemies with a machine gun which you can do at the Vex/Cabal warren (where you also farm hella Relic Iron) right off the launch pad of Mars Patrol with just two or three Heavy Weapon caches, and then you have the gun.

212. "I like Super Good Advice; when you get ammo return, it's a room clearer"
In response to Reply # 211


  

          

it's pretty pedestrian up until you get the ammo return perk, but once you get that? You're hitting with virtually 100% of ammo used, so if you just use it specifically in sections where you are facing lots of enemies at a close range, it's super effective. I crush Hive Wizards with it (doesn't matter if they dodge my rounds, those get returned, I just re-adjust my aim while still firing), I sweep waves of Fallen or Vex. It's not great on bosses, but that doesn't mean it doesn't have utility.

I'm not trying to take a 33% chance that helmet becomes what I want. Purchased 2 different Exotic weapons since Xur keeps trying to shov that Armamentarium on me...
