Destiny 2 - Page 21

post #1001 of 1647

This is the guy I'm running with Scoop right now:

Cool Warlock!  I assume it's a Warlock.  I'm the Hunter.  I couldn't help but pick the Cayde 6 class.  His super is amaaaaaazing fun.

 

My buddy keeps insisting Warframe is the better game in just about every way, and while he's right, the LOOT drive and moment to moment gameplay in Destiny is damn fine for me so far.  Not to mention the graphics are simply better. 

post #1003 of 1647

I have a Titan at 20, my Hunter is 25, and that's my new Warlock. Liking him ok so far.

 

I sent you a friend request, Freeman, but can't seem to add you to the clan yet. Are you in another Blizzard clan already? Maybe Saxon can try too.

post #1004 of 1647

I added you back!  I'm not in a clan yet...

post #1005 of 1647

Also having trouble adding you to the clan it seems. Weird...

post #1006 of 1647

I promise I'm normal!  I saw your invite a few minutes ago while I was playing with my buddies.

post #1007 of 1647

It might be an issue with the web app, I'll see if I can add you in-game when I get back from work.

post #1008 of 1647

Destiny celebrity actors I have only just learned about and which surprised me:

 

The Gunsmith in The Tower (Banshee-44) is voiced by Bender from Futurama (John DiMaggio), and Lord Shaxx who praises / berates you in The Crucible is voiced by Morgan from The Walking Dead (Lennie James).  Having played far too many Crucible matches (thanks to the weekly Milestones), I've come to really appreciate some of James' line readings. "Why can't the rookies be more like you? JUST THINKING ABOUT IT INFURIATES ME!!!!"

post #1009 of 1647

And Lord Saladin is voiced by none other than Overwatch's Reaper.

 

There's an easter egg in the Iron Banner where if you hit a certain kill streak he'll scream "DIE! DIE! DIE!" 

 

Also, Mayhem sounds amazing.

The Raid boss is voiced by Overwatch's Reinhardt.












The PC folks may have to check out YouTube to hear it....

What? Because we can't ever seem to get our shit together enough to get 6 of us on at the same time to do a raid? Yeah...you're right.

Ummm, no.

 

I picked it up a month or so before D2 came out - after I had burned out on ME:A - and found it a painful experience with a very ugly aesthetic. Also, it's all grindy, grindy, grindy. 

 

But that's the great thing about the gaiming universe we live in, there's something for everyone out there so enjoy!

Got my hands on this today in a really odd way*. It's pretty good but I don't know whether I can give up an Exotic weapon slot for a Power weapon. The Power weapons already seem like limited use, super-powerful options, even when they're non-Exotics. Still, I'm probably going to try this out in the Crucible...

 

 

 

* Can you get Exotics from Legendary engrams? I'm pretty sure that's where I got this from unless I mis-read the purple engram I picked up during a public event and got decrypted at the Tower.

For a guy who was happy to spoil an entire new movie for people in the Box Office thread, that's remarkably coy of you.

post #1019 of 1647

I still don't get it.

post #1020 of 1647

Speaking of Xur, anyone know what he's selling yet?

 

And thanks for the heads up to stay out of the Box Office thread.

They've moved Xur back a few hours so we won't know for another two and a bit hours.

 

You don't need to worry about the BO thread. It happened a few months back. 

post #1022 of 1647

Oh man, I thought you meant he spoiled Star Wars in there.  I don't see Sta Wars until Monday.  I even blocked tcjsavannah for like 5 minutes to be safe just because I thought he spoiled Star Wars.   Unblocked!

post #1023 of 1647

Go ahead and block me back, Dalyn. In 13 years on this board, that's evidently the only memorable thing I've done on here.

It's EASILY a more fully featured game.  But Destiny is way way slicker.

post #1025 of 1647

Ha!  I'm not blocking you.  I don't block anyone.  But I was going to temporarily block anyone talking about Star Wars in non SW threads until I see the movie.  Just in case.  Then remove said blocks after I see it.  Not spiteful blocks.  Just cautionary blocks.

Indeed. I just don't enjoy the combat in Warframe. Fun combat is what keeps bringing me back to this game. 

post #1027 of 1647

They make the interesting choice of making you a GOD who cuts through hordes and hordes like butter, like Diablo almost.  It solves the bullet sponge problem entirely, but the combat is...  Less satisfying because of it.  The only real challenge and depth from Warframe combat largely comes from "am I going to be over whelmed?"

 

Never "can I out play these guys??"  

post #1028 of 1647

Yeah, I tried Warframe a bit as well.  It looked like it got deeper in the customization of your character, but I wasn't ass big a fin of the combat.  I really needed to change the feature where it threw me in with other players.  I would start a map and two other guys were just zipping through the thing. I was wondering "how are you guys having fun?  Don't you want to shoot aliens in the face?"

post #1029 of 1647

Rule number 1 of Warframe.  You fly everywhere like a God.  If you're slowly wandering around exploring you haven't adjusted to the games pace yet.

post #1030 of 1647

Back to Destiny, so are we still on for normal time tomorrow?  I may be on a little earlier than normal trying to hit some milestones.  I usually do a chunk of milestones on Friday night, but I'm going out tonight.  Usually also try to get some in on Sundays, but I think I'm going to spend this Sunday drinking and grilling ribs (last grill of the year!).  So Saturday's probably it for me this week.

post #1031 of 1647

I'm still in the process of getting over this damned flu (thanks Australia), so will definitely be around tomorrow for some group stuff in Destiny 2

post #1032 of 1647

I haven't done any Milestones so far this week so it'd be great to do that. Work's just been crazy. But since I'm off now till the new year expect to see me around a LOT.

post #1033 of 1647

I tried a crucible match last night, and I was shamefully bad.  Like, my team might have won if I wasn't there.   I don't know why I thought matchmaking would check power levels.

We've all been there, so I wouldn't worry about it. The best advice I can give you is to stick with your team-mates. It sounds like really obvious advice (because it is!) but the Crucible is geared toward team-play and tends to punish lone wolves. I only realised this recently and it's paid off for me. 

post #1035 of 1647

You should have been on with me and Sax last week. In one match we kept trading spots through the match for last place.  I think the game ended with us both having the same amount of kills (9 I think) while our other two teammates had like twenty something.

post #1036 of 1647
I don't think power level does anything in Crucible.
post #1037 of 1647

I assumed not either, but then I got MELTED.  To be fair, I was melted by that dumb lens weapon, so maybe it's more fair now?

 

Why can't they balance PvP and PvE content separately?  Is it that impossible to crack? Pretty sure WoW does it now. 

post #1038 of 1647
Lens was a one off case, a temporarily bugged weapon that's now nerfed.

In Crucible the attributes of the weapons (Impact, etc.) are what matter. It's so that a low level player with a Scathelocke is the same as a high level player with a Scathelocke. For me, Crucible is a fun hybrid of TDM and weapon collecting.
post #1039 of 1647

I could be wrong but I believe the only time that Power level counts is during the Iron Banner event. Otherwise, everyone goes into the Crucible as equal opponents. (Please correct me if I'm wrong, Destiny vets). 

post #1040 of 1647
Picked up a Nighthawk helmet from Xur for my Hunter. Makes me look like I just wandered off the set of Phantom of the Paradise. Also Three of Coins! Grabbed a couple of those as well.

This was true in D1 for both Banner and Trials. This was another sorta stupid(power was NOT that big a differential) decision for D2 to remove that because outside of cosmetics in both and the single map/game type/gear lock for Trials they are normal Crucible balance. I have seen people doing white armor/weapon challenges in Trials.
post #1042 of 1647

Tried starting a Warlock today and I'm really not feeling it. Maybe you truly love the first class you play, but I miss my barrier SO MUCH. 

post #1043 of 1647

Awww, but that's fine. I had sort of the opposite reaction.

 

I have to say though, I've been levelling my Hunter the last few days and REALLY love that class. Almost more than my 'Lock...

 

That reload dodge move and knife throwing are lit.

post #1044 of 1647
Three of Coins is a damn scam!
post #1045 of 1647

Maybe it got confused as to which member of our Fireteam had purchased it, and that's why I ended up with an Exotic Engram and you didn't. :)

post #1046 of 1647
Oh man, even worse. I thought Three of Coins would pause and pick up when I log off in a game. Nope. Logged back in later and it’s expired already. So two bought and used. One Exotic acquired.
post #1047 of 1647

Wut?

post #1048 of 1647
I thought Three of Coins was good for four hours of play time, but it appears to be four hours of real time. Not to mention I didn’t get any more exotics than usual using it. Don’t waste your shards.
post #1049 of 1647

You Titans and Warlocks are straight up lame yo.  Hunter's where it's at.  He's got three turn tables and a microphone.  

post #1050 of 1647
You know what else is lame? Not figuring out how to join our clan so you can contribute to Clan XP. Also you miss out on the pleasure of running around with us on various planets, shooting aliens in the face while we converse as gentlemen.
