Destiny 2 - Page 4

post #151 of 1045

Milestones do reset every week. This includes your Flashpoint (doing public events on a designated planet), Call to Arms (play PvP if you want to or not), the Nightfall (which I'll be looking for some after work around 5:30 EST), the raid, trials, and (which you'll get by doing just some of the previous) - personal clan XP. All of those will get you luminous engrams (listed as "powerful" gear for rewards). The only ones that don't reset are things like the exotic weapon quests.

 

Do pick them up by the end of the week - certainly (although I've heard tell that they get sent to your postmaster if you don't)

However, just be thoughtful on when you turn those in....

If blues and legendary engrams aren't going to give you an upgrade - turn one in

Do blues or legendary engrams do anything for you now? If yes, use those (including tokens on planets, with Vanguards, etc) - If not, feel free to pop another luminous

Lather, rinse, repeat

 

While I haven't actually finished one myself (yet), I also understand that there are drops for both the normal and prestige Nightfalls - hopefully I'll find some a team and knock at least one out this week.

The clan engrams - I think they're just slightly better than normal legendary ones - but if some of those are available - might be worth turning those in before hitting the luminous ones.

 

Bottom line is once blues and legendary gear stop progressing your character, you'll need either a luminous engram, and exotic engram, or raid gear to further that progression

 

And unless you're just jumping in for less than an hour - do yourself a favor and always run with a Fireteam token thing active - they're 50 bright dust which you should have plenty by just breaking down additional ships, sparrows, and ghosts that you're earning from bright engrams (which will not progress your character's power levels)

So angry joe gave this a six, the same exact verdict he gave the first game for various reasons. Where are the CHUD console people falling? From my perspective on the outside and a big player of games like Borderlands or Warframe, Destiny seems like a frustrating experience.

Right now it's Destiny through and through. From the top tier gunplay to the amazeballs fuckingstupidity of some of the systems put in place that only a week or three of playing have begun to bring into the light.

Bungie gonna Bungie as far as economy, Clan rewards and other decisions that impact long term enjoyment go. They front loaded it so much they will have problems that will spiral out of control if they "fix" them with the same mindset they fixed D1 with.

It's still fun right now but I wonder when these things are getting examined how they aren't more forward thinking about them.

If there's an opening, I'd like to join.  I've managed to get the boss down to a third of his health, but then my teammates had to go.  Something about it being 3 a.m. and them having school in the morning.  Noobs.

Check your PS4 messages. I added you to our group on there. They are formulating a group. Looks like they need three more.

I've soured on Angry Joe exponentially in recent months. He annoys the living fuck out of me.

Please don't tell me your one of his "fans" bitching about not enough reviews etc.

post #159 of 1045
No his schtick just got old really fast for me. When I realized watching one video just how much he was annoying me I wondered why I was doing this, unsubbed and never looked back. At least with someone like Total Biscuit or Jim Sterling, even if I do disagree with them on something, they present their points in such a way that I see where they're coming from. Joe pisses me off even if he says something I agree with!

Other Joe is cool. But the rest of his crew, the fat neckbeard especially, can all fuck off.

Anyway, still really looking forward to this.
post #160 of 1045

Fair enough.  I'll take your Jim Sterlings or your Angry Joe's every now and then over bland boring personality void spread sheet reviewers.  A little bit of passion and character never hurt anyone.

Yeah, that guy's fucking annoying. 

 

I keep hoping Joe and Jim Sterling will do something together one day, as they're both apparently quite good friends.

post #162 of 1045

Quick infusion question - can you infuse a weapon more than once? For instance, I got a sunshot at a much lower power level and infused it up a few days ago. Now it's getting weaker again as my character power levels higher but I can't seem to infuse it up to a new/better power level.

Oh crap. I've pre-ordered one of those games...

I infused something twice on a screwup when I picked the wrong item.  Can't recall what it was but I know I leveled it twice. I am assuming you have a hand cannon to use because it has to be the same weapon type. Exotics MIGHT be limited to a single infusion but if you look in your Collections in the Vault you should have a higher version you can purchase. Nothing I am seeing online says you are limited to one infusion for Exotics though.

post #165 of 1045

Yeah, I keep seeing that stuff in my vault and was wondering where it was coming from. But you have to spend shards for it (right?) so I'm trying to save up for Xur this weekend...on the other hand, I reaaaally like that sunshot :)

Xur should not be a problem depending on how much you are playing. Dismantle every purple that isn't being worn is what I am seeing most folks do. I am sitting on 100+ shards at the moment and I think Dave is at 300+.  Weirdly I know a few folks running low on Glimmer but shards are not a problem I have seen.

 

Bungie screwed the Xur economy by making him too cheap and/or not making him a temporary quest giver with lore for the Nine.

post #167 of 1045

Wait - purple = legendary, right? I swear I dismantle those all the time and I just get gunsmith materials? I'll have to double check and keep an eye on it. Thanks! (Also, I see you're a fellow SC player. I'm in Columbia)

Yes, legendary. Above the green box for Gunsmith materials you will see a very small shard icon with +3 for each legendary. Your shard count is next to your Glimmer and if you're breaking down a bunch of legendaries you should have a bunch of shards.

Aha - turns out "blue" does not equal "purple" ! My bad.

Recruitment post rough draft:

 

Quote:
 

What is CHUD/The Sewer?
CHUD.com is an online entertainment community of folks who gather to discuss movies, television, games, music and a whole host of other topics at CHUD.com, a film review website that has been reporting on Hollywood for years. We have a message board that has folks from around the world who come to discuss everything from the newest blockbuster to classic favorites of film to most anything in between! We have had a PS Clan presence since the very inception of D1 and have tens of thousands of combined hours of Destiny play but we're looking to expand and grow the community. The XBOX and PC Clans are new with D2.

 

What are your requirements?
That you want to have fun and want to enjoy a social gaming experience with other folks who want to get sweet loot.

 

What if I'm a new player? Can I still join?
Of course! Most of us are long time players of Destiny and have raid leaders and sherpas that will assist you with the game's mechanics, raids, and more! We're here to teach you, not make fun of you.

 

What platform are you guys on?
We have platform leaders across Xbox, PlayStation, and PC!

 

How can I join?
Stop by the CHUD.com message boards. The link above goes to our Destiny 2 thread. Take a look around. If you find a community of like minded people introduce yourself in the Destiny 2 thread and one of our Admins will take things from there.

 

Are you looking for any skillsets or players in particular?

 

PS4- https://www.bungie.net/en/ClanV2?groupid=197761
We are in need of PvP-centric players to improve our Crucible, Trials and Iron Banner involvement.
The PlayStation clan is US East Coast heavy and we would like more West Coast and Australian/NZ time zone players to allow a few of our clan members to be able to have Fireteams when they play.

 

XBOX-
New clan for D2. Looking for PvE, PvP and all around the world.

 

PC-
New clan for D2. Looking for PvE, PvP and all around the world.

 

Thoughts? Additions? Subtractions?

I did C&P this from one of the better recruitment posts I read. I did think about modifying that to some degree or at least putting something about good natured joshing in the requirements section.

post #178 of 1045

What are your requirements?

 

That you acknowledge the superiority of a Black and Grey coloured Batman over a Blue coloured one as well as the importance of Mirror, Mirror in the Cinematic landscape. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I mean, we don't want to just let ANYONE in.

Highly recommended at a minimum. For things like NightFall Strikes, the Raid, and even PvP - being able to communicate with your team is a huge impact. In fact for a raid in particular, a mic I would say is required. On the PS4 - I just use a (roughly) $12 pair of earbuds that were originally sold for the Vita and it works just fine.

post #181 of 1045
Thank you! I’ll grab one.

By the by, did you happen to send a join request to the PS4 clan? There is a notification but I don't recognize the PSN ID.

post #184 of 1045

Looks good to me.  I also believe a mic is required (excepting Trials gods) to play with us.  Good natured and good fun is what we want, with some interest in playing weekly, and some flexibility in your teammates.  We are not (and should not be) a bunch of little fiefdoms.

Factions are coming back.

 

Just pledge all three of your characters to three different factions, that way you're guaranteed to get the "winning" weapon for 1,000 glimmer.

 

Also, feel bad for New Monarchy. Nobody is going to vote for a sidearm. No matter how good the weapon might end up being.

post #190 of 1045

I didn't even think about the FWC not being in the game at launch.

 

How you not gonna have FWC in the game at launch?!

post #191 of 1045

I think they announced that factions would take a while to come back, and it does make some sort of narrative sense. I am happy they are back so quickly.

While I agree with New Monarchy's unfortunate weapon option (a sidearm), admittedly the shader looks quite nice indeed. I'll have the Hunter pledge to them since I play him the least. The Titan (my 2nd favorite class) can go to FWC and hope I just don't end up getting any of their shaders (ewww), and of course my star guardian the master-race Warlock can pledge to Dead Orbit.
