That ship is dope af

post #452 of 954

Yeah, I'm still dinkin' around in the original ship.

 

I also only just realized you can re-do the adventures you've completed for more loot. That's cool.

post #453 of 954

As much as I hate lootbox systems in general, I'm enjoying how charitable Bungie have apparently been with theirs. When I played Overwatch briefly (which, of course, also gives you a lootbox every time you level up), all I ever got was fucking sprays. Here, I've gotten a new ship, weapon skins, emotes, shaders, sparrow skins, a new teleportation effect when I beam down onto planets, and some pretty decent gear after opening only a few. It's sneaky that they make you go to the place where you can buy more in order to open the free ones you've already got, but I'll let them off.

Maybe you are simply Blessed by the RNGesus, Sax.

Really?! I'm honestly surprised to hear that. I figured this was normal, as I'm not very lucky in general.

There are people who stopped playing D1 with me because of my magnificent RNG.

 

At least that is what I tell myself.

post #458 of 954

Lucky we don't play together, Tzu, or you might leach some of the RNG powa that I've just discovered I have!

You can Shade your ships?!?!?

You can shade your ship AND Sparrow.

Yes, and on PS4 - you can press the option button while on the home screen to eject a disc.....

post #462 of 954

Me, currently:

 

 

I was just on the last section of the last adventure on this damn planet and I got stuck in the environment. Not in some weird tricky geometry or anything, either, just a corner in a wall out in the open. Tried everything to free myself to no avail, had to log out, and now of course I have to start that adventure over from the beginning. Grrr.

Damn good to be back above Level 20.  I only need Uriel's Gift to feel whole again.

Heiro Camo boots as well actually.

First New Monarchy engram dropped the boots I needed for the Warlock. I can grind for the Bond for a set but otherwise managed to complete that one.

Oh, man. That sucks!

 

I thought I was going to be stuck yesterday. I was going an EDZ adventure ("Unsafe At Any Speed") which primarily uses vehicles - but mine got blown up right before the final objective.... which involved taking down a massive enemy tank. Aside from my Ultimate, I was barely scratching the bloody thing and thought I'd have to backtrack all the way to the starting point in order to steal another vehicle with adequate firepower.... when six players suddenly turned up out of nowhere and swiftly blew the fuck out of it for me. 
 
It's honestly the first time I've been sad about not being able to talk to strangers in this game. Would have loved to thank them for that. One of them was called NightyKnight which I found oddly hilarious.

I really need to get involved in this Faction thingy. I was briefly watching Gamespot's Destiny stream yesterday and the streamer ran through the rewards each faction offers, and First New Monarchy has some stuff I definitely want.

Check with Claudia Black, Eververse Rep. She frequently has ships for sale for Bright Dust. That's how I got mine.
post #470 of 954

As ungrateful as it sounds, I don't like the ship I won. It looks like two boogers strapped together. Urgh. I'm tempted just to buy one, like you suggest. The ones that Eververse sell look really sexy.

post #471 of 954
Is that that blocky ship with the big engines? That thing is fugly.

If you don't have enough Bright Dust there's Amanda in the Tower Hanger right next to Cayde who sells Uncommon ships for Glimmer.
post #472 of 954
And make sure you buy up Cayde's treasure maps. His Stash Chests can have some great loot, even Exotic Engrams. It's for Nessus this week but he sells new sets with every Weekly reset.

Good advice. I keep running into random loot chests. Would be good to have a map for those.

Always dance and wave if you need to thank someone. They'll get the message.

And just for point of reference, it is just New Monarchy. I was saying my "first" engram of this rally dropped the boots. We console folk are on our second rally so I already had most of the Warlock armor.

Honestly I wouldnt waste Bright Dust on anything but medallions, shaders and armor. Play enough and you'll get the other stuff. However you PC folk seem to be slow rolling this so buying might be the way to go.

Gold loot chests are a one time thing. Random chests spawn randomly and respawn at certain intervals. Cayde sells maps to his specific chests but also scouting reports which will highlight random chest locations for 4 hours.

Hey, we have kids and jobs and.... uh...... Codey's probably focusing on his Ulysses Klaw toy collection (he's so proud of Andy Serkis' spot-on accent for that character, y'know).

You should invest in a cheap mic if you want to tackle the raid, Harold. Raids are designed for communication; you basically can't complete them if you're unable to talk to your teammates.

OK, PC folks... Faction Rally brings you your first cheese opportunity. Go pledge that faction and max it to 30 engrams. 600 tokens total. Less than an hour of work.

 

 

Bungie gonna Bungie.

I already have a set of microphone headphones. Admittedly they've been in the box for quite a few months, but I'm happy to use them when needed.  Other than this one occasion when it would have come in handy, it just seems pointless to use them outside of raids, strikes etc.

post #480 of 954

Bungie may work to shut that cheese down, so if you can stand it (it is monotonous, but you can talk on the phone or listen to a podcast while you do it), get after it while it is there.  The next fastest way to get 20 tokens (1 package) is 4 heroic public events (at 5 each) which would take ~20 minutes if you get lucky on rotation.  I'm not going to do an hour of it per character, but I may do 30 min or so per character and get halfway there.  The rest I can get by playing the old-fashioned way.

post #481 of 954

Seems to be a bug with Cayde's stashes where they don't drop anything. Anyone else experiencing this?

I thought they had fixed that. Happens if you open chests, PEs', randoms, gold or Cayde's, too quickly in succession. If it happens just go do something else for a few minutes besides open a chest.

Totally off topic - where do you get that "angry eyes" gif from and how do you embed it so it actually plays on a thread?!

If it's a .gif file you can just upload it as an image and the gif will play.

 

I get most of my gifs just from Google searches and Reddit tbh.

Me and the B-Squad All-Stars rolled this one team in Crucible 70-20.

 

Shaxx was losing his mind.

I can't tell if you guys are going to a gun fight or a fancy party.

When you got Crucible at 8 and Gin Fizz Cocktails at 9:30.

post #489 of 954

That is tight. What Bonds are your Warlocks wearing? I want that! 

 

I got the FWC chest piece last night, which is just a snazzier version of the one I was using, but looks great!

Those appear to be the Binary Phoenix Crucible Bond available from Lord Shaxx.

Started climbing an area of Nexus and wound up going higher than I thing was intended. Wound up hanging out in midair. Started dancing because...I guess that's what you do.

And as luck would have it, I got one just now! biggrin.gif

Bit of a balm after doing PE's all day, most Heroic, and not getting a single Exotic Engram...
post #493 of 954

Repping my CHUD colours. 

 

 

Want to switch things up for a bit so I'm giving the MIDA a little break and want to test out the Tractor Cannon I just got and I'm going Stormcaller for a bit as well. That Crown of Tempests would really complete this look hmmm...

post #494 of 954

Noice, Codename. I think I may follow suit if I can get some cool green, grey and black bits.

post #495 of 954

Guardians never lose hope!

post #496 of 954

Following in Codename's lead:

 

 

Using a shader called Watermelon for my cape.  It gives it that oil slick shimmer look.

I'm using the Veist Poison shader on most pieces there. 

post #498 of 954
I use Veist Poison on my Sparrow.
post #499 of 954

Had a good time running a Strike or two with Codename and Dalyn earlier this evening. My e-peen withered away at the end, when I got to see how many kills I'd racked up in comparison to the others (i can't remember who it was, but one of them had effectively trippled my score). Anyway, it was pretty good fun and I'd love to do it again sometime, especially as it gave us bonus XP for running it with clan-mates. On that note, our clan is reaaaaaally close to levelling up now!

post #500 of 954
I'm sorry that it took me half an hour to figure out how to join the fire team. Otherwise I could have done a second one. Now I know for next time.
