post #602 of 905

Goddamn I'm trying to play it but Battlenet is making me download an update.  I can't get that download speed past kbs per second.  Fuck!

post #603 of 905

That sucks. I'll be online in an hour or two if you manage to get in-game. I already missed one chance to team-up with Codey by not reading my chat today, but hopefully I'll get the opportunity to rectify that.

No it's fine. I know you hate me and think I'm uncool...

:p

Finally broke 290 with my Voidlock today. I'll get to 305 if it kills me!

 

Also got my Striker Titan up to 271 and I haven't finished the story yet. Really helps that my Vault is stacked with powerful weapons and Exotic presents from Santa Xur.

 

Currently rolling with two Auto Rifles and the Actium War Rig. So this is me right now:

 

post #605 of 905

Have reached the dreaded 270 plateau. Hopefully the two weapon quests I've got will help me get through this, although the drang and sturm one is kinda bullshit seeing as it requires me to decrypt legendary and exotic engrams, and those last ones don't exactly drop regularly. Urgh.

post #606 of 905
How many legendaries? I may as well start saving.

Use a Fireteam Medallion and just grind Pub Events. Honestly the best way to get Exotic Engrams. Nessus and Io have probably the best rotation of Pub Events of the planets. 

 

I'm actually using Sturm on my Voidlock right now for the power boost. It's no MIDA or Sunshot but it's a good gun I guess. I miss my MIDA...

 

Finished the campaign with my Titan (who's at 278 right now). Need to farm some legendaries to get my look just right on him. Also started my Hunter who I've been enjoying a lot as well, probably more than the Titan. Hunter probably has the best jump of all the classes IMO.

If you think that's bad, you should see the conditions for the Rat King weapon. I've got it in my vault at the moment and doubt I'll ever get around to completing it.

I have a visual mod for Rat King. I did finally get the MIDA, though.

Yeah, that one is kind of ridiculous. 

 

I really don't like Sidearms so I doubt I'll use it. 

 

Just FYI, in case you don't know how, this is how you trigger Heroic Events on the different kinds of Public Events:

 

https://www.polygon.com/destiny-2-guide-walkthrough/2017/9/7/16263480/heroic-public-events-find-trigger-earth-titan-nessus-io

 

They net you a lot better rewards. You'll be drowning in purple engrams before too long.

I'm really enjoying the Minimum Distance sidearm at the moment. It's quick to draw, packs a punch, and it makes me feel like a cowboy when I fast-draw it and put a bullet in an alien's head. 

 

Roll on Tuesday and new milestones please, coz' I ain't in a position to complete my remaining ones (for the nightfall and the raid).

post #614 of 905

Fuck, I tried the Nightfall with one of the dudes on my Friend's list.

 

That shit is BRUTAL. Didn't even make it to the boss over 3 tries. 

post #615 of 905

I made the mistake of thinking the game would pair me with others, like with the Strikes, and went running into the Nightfall on my own. It went as well as you might expect. 

post #616 of 905

I may have more free time this next weekend if you guys want to try a Nightfall.  I also need to do that damn Leviathan as part of a weapon quest.

post #617 of 905

I should be available around the same time as last time on Saturday, if you guys are around and want to give the Nightfall a go? I'm a bit worried, though, having read Codey's comments about the difficulty! Do you think that was because there was only two of you?

post #618 of 905
There were three of us but they weren't you beautiful bastards so we might have a chance provided we communicate properly and work as a team! Which we didn't that time which is probably why we were struggling.
post #619 of 905

Hopefully

 

(1) My shitty ISP doesn't fuck me over again, like it did last weekend. "Oh, you want to game online? How about we take away your internet access every five minutes?" Fuck you, Talktalk. 

 

(2) I've fixed the issue I had with my microphone last week. In my defence, it was only the second time I'd used it and it came with no instructions. Although, not realizing you'd hit the mute button is probably inexcusable....

 

But, yeah, we can do it! 

post #620 of 905

I'd offer to move out of my current build (I'm really enjoying throwing those firey hammers around) for the Nightfall and go full Titan Code Of The Protector Sentinel BUT it's the only subclass for which I have no exotic boosting gear. I have a chest piece for Solar and a helmet for Arc but nothing for Void. :(

 

Still, perhaps offense is the best offense!

post #621 of 905

Actually that Hammer Artillery Super of yours might come in handy. 

 

But use what you like! I've tried the other builds on my Warlock but nothing is more fun than my tanky Devour Voidlock. Even if I sometimes fuck up my Nova Bomb. 

post #622 of 905

Also see that Iron Banner is live this week so we should definitely give that a spin cause those armour sets are SIIIIIIIIIIIIIICK

 

 

 

post #623 of 905

Nice armor sets!

 

Yeah, I'm enjoying Siegebreaker quite a bit although I think it's bugged (in a good way). Grenades and melee kills are meant to unleash deadly sunspots (which they do) but I've also noticed the random sunspot created by a kill with a gun. Which is great! But obviously not intended.   

post #624 of 905

The Iron Banner sets have always been my favorite armor in Destiny.  Wolves and trees just work.  I managed to get the full Hunter set during the last IB, and will work towards the Titan and Warlock this go around.  Decent shaders as well.

 

It is all about looking the best.

Turns out I spoke to soon. As a result of completing one of my milestones today, I was given a pair of exotic gauntlets which help with Void stuff. As they're the highest piece of gear I now have, I kind of HAVE to wear them (and therefore go Sentinel rather than Sunbreaker) in order to increase my Power. The only issue is that they're ugly as fuck (they have these huge jagged spikes coming out of the shoulders) and don't visually match with anything else I'm wearing. Urgh.

 

It's so hard being a fashion icon in this game. 

post #626 of 905

I'm gonna make a concerted effort to finish up the campaign when I get back from visiting family over the holiday. And just to mention, you guys may see Jacob Singer online in Steam or in Destiny, but it'll be my house-sitter/cat feeder. Although I did get the mobile version of Lords of Waterdeep, so at least I can still lose in that game even when away from home.

Infuse them into a purple you do like. Get a 270 version out of the Vault(Collections) when you really want to use them later on.
post #628 of 905
Notice Xur was selling the Punchy Punchy Gauntlets of Life...well shit, I guess I'll recycle my stash of purples. Warlock Shirley Mansion is ready to go and shit.

Surprised how quickly I got my Titan to 260 today. Fuck it, I'm just going to start a hunter. Titan is boring to play right now, but I'm missing two pieces to make the ramming speed build work.

If I'm available and you feel like it I'll gladly co-op that shiz with you.
post #630 of 905
Cayde fucked me over yesterday. Both with the Stashes, and the Flashpoint rewards which all dropped below my current Light.

Fuck you funny robot man!

Apparently my base power is too low with the current gauntlets I have so I'm going to have to farm some that I can infuse. In the meantime, I'll have to run around with them as they're the highest Powered items I have (282 against my current Power of 271).

So that means they are 277. What's your purple arm at?
post #633 of 905

I'm pretty sure they're 270.

Then the Exotic should be able to go into the Legendary but it will only bring it to 277.

post #635 of 905

Thanks to this week's milestones, the use of one of those tokens that increases loot and XP, and running around IO's public events, I managed to get several pieces of powerful gear that have pushed me up to 275. Having hovered around 270 for aaaages, this sudden increase feels really good - especially because I received a better version of the exotic solar chestpiece I'd been wearing, so I've been able to go back to the subclass I prefer. 

 

More importantly, the danger of me losing my fashion icon status has, thankfully, been avoided. 

 

 

Just gotta get to 280 now.....

We are reunited.  There were tears.  Manly Titan tears.

 

post #637 of 905
Got to pair it with that Actium War Rig. 'Tis a thing of beauty.
post #638 of 905

Got the IB chestpiece and boots.

 

Hopefully I can complete the set. And Hawthorne and Shaxx did NOT fuck me over like Cayde did with the Luminous Engrams. I'm on 294 right now...

On the off-chance that anyone reads this thread but hasn't yet picked up the game, it's currently got 40% off on Green Man Gaming which is a pretty great deal, so you should go there right fucking now.

 

And, no, I'm not putting this out there because I want more people to help level our clan or anything like that. Shut up. I'm not. (I am.)

post #640 of 905

Damn if this game's voice cast isn't crazily stacked.

 

Just realized that the faction leaders are voiced by Shoheh Agdhashloo (FWC), Peter Stormare (Dead Orbit) and James Remar (NM)

1.  I've gone from being glad about the lack of a general chat in this game, to - and this comes from several hours of grinding public events today - sad about not being able to tell the strangers standing beside me to shoot the ship SHOOT THE SHIP TO TRIGGER THE HEROIC EVENT GODDAMNIT

 

2. Some great Xur stuff today. Xur is one of my favorite things about this game at the moment, as he makes logging on every Friday really fun. The Merciless is making me consider using a fusion Power weapon for the first time, and the Mask Of The Quiet Ones might actually get me to adopt a different subclass. 

 

3. Dalyn, I'm sorry for kidnapping you today. Apparently you can leave a fireteam by pressing TAB and then holding O. Now I know....

 

4.

Having been a hardcore Elder Scrolls Online player for a year or so - where Stormare voiced Jorunn The Skald-King (leader of the Ebonheart Pact) - I wonder whether he's on his way to becoming "the guy who voices video game faction leaders". Still, those three have really distinctive voices. I'd know Agdhashloo's voice almost anywhere now.

Wait until the influx of Christmas noobs....

 

If I am present at the beginning of the PE I can safely trigger all but maybe two of them on my own without help from the riff-raff.

 

I remember in D1 there was huge problem with people going into their menus and just standing there doing a bunch of shit for what seemed like ages. Problem is that most of the time they would do that in an area that blocked the spawn of enemies. D1 was heavy on a few choice cheese areas and inevitably you'd be trying to complete a Patrol for a Bounty and some dickwad wouldn't leave the area to allow your targets to conveniently respawn so you could do the Bounty in 2 minutes instead of 20.

 

So far I have only run into this once in D2.

I have to agree. As thankful as I am not to have toxic shit in the corner of my screen sometimes (Overwatch is horrible for this) general chat could be useful for a LOT of reasons. 

 

Merciless is great and I am a huge fan of Fusion Rifles in general. But goddamn you Xur GIVE ME MY COOL SKULL HELM DAMMIT! 

post #646 of 905
Spent a lot of time today in the Crucible working on my Iron Banner goals. God I wish I didn't suck at Crucible so much.
post #647 of 905

It happens. I've had matches where I and/or the team have utterly dominated. Others where we get mercilessly stomped into oblivion. It gets better the more you play it. I've found that some subclasses are better suited for it. I'm normally a Devour Voidlock but Stormcaller's just SOOOO much better against other players.

 

Last night I wiped out the entire opposing team with my Stormtrance. We still lost by 1 point but in that moment I felt like this:

 

post #648 of 905

Disappointing to read that they were capping XP, especially as I've been quite happy about the microtransactions in this game and the way they're done. There's almost certainly no way they would have capped it, if the XP wasn't going toward the very thing you can also buy with real world money. Am I happy that they've changed it? Absolutely. Am I happy they waited until they were caught? Not really. It doesn't inspire a great deal of confidence. Who knows what else they might have hidden away?

post #649 of 905

Activision gotta Activision. 

 

Anyway, here's my Tacticool Commando Titan.
