Feh. All I know is that MAYHEM CLASH is on rotation this week in D1, so that's where I'll be.

 

COME GET SOME

Zhukov speaks the truth. They are fumbling around with this whole locking people out of content bullshit when the solution to their problem was a core part of the game in D1.  Difficulty levels...

 

 

 

 

Simply reinstate the difficulty selector, WHICH THEY ALREADY HAVE WITH THE 300/330 levels... and lock people out of difficulty levels they haven't paid to achieve. IT'S A FUCKING MECHANIC FROM YOUR THREE YEAR OLD GAME YOU FUCKING FUCKS!

 

If you only have the base game, you can only attempt up to level 300. If you have Curse you can do 330 content, etc. JFC, people.

If my frighin super would pop sooner than 4 minutes into the match, that would be Mayhemy by D2 standards.

I do miss Mayhem a lot. I remember fun.

I doubt it. I've got an Exotic Ship and an Exotic Sparrow at the same time no fuss. 

 

And FUUUUCK I want one of those Exotic Ghost shells...

Just a watched a video where a guy spent thousands of Legendary Shards and Gunsmith Materials obtaining Legendaries, and barely got any Masterwork Weapons. The drop rate was really low. Admittedly, he had more luck when it came to getting them from planet vendors via tokens, so maybe that's the way to go, but it seems Masterwork Weapons are exceptionally rare. However, once he got enough Masterwork Cores to turn his favorite weapon into a Masterwork Weapon, and demonstrated how quickly it generates orbs for your special abilities (assuming you're killing multiple enemies), it convinced me that they're worth grinding for. 

post #957 of 1644
I forgot about masterworks. Is there a way you can tell without opening the weapon up? A lot of times I just see how strong the weapon is and then break it down. I hope I didn't break any down last night.


I guess I could just watch that video.
post #958 of 1644

Masterwork weapons will have a yellow outline which once you see one, you'll quickly be able to recognize it. Also, when you do break them down, you'll get a masterwork core. You'll need 10 of those cores to upgrade another 'favorite' weapon to a masterwork version. Going into yesterday, I had around 1800 gunsmith materials so decided to spend about 800 (bringing me back down to one stack of 999) and in doing so, got 2 of them myself. Its still early in 'masterwork' weapons, but I'm considering them comparable to ancients in Diablo 3 so I guess I went in expecting them to be fairly rare.

post #959 of 1644

Man I had forgotten about that difficulty selector.  That was a pretty nice feature.

post #960 of 1644

Back in noobtown: I had to google how to turn on my flashlight.

 

... Turns out, I can't.

post #961 of 1644

It's automatic.

post #962 of 1644

So you get Masterwork Cores from breaking down Masterwork Weapons.  And you can use those cores and shards to upgrade one of your Legendaries to a Masterwork.  And those Masterwork drops are rare. Yeah, this is going to be a fun grind!

I did three Heroic Strikes last night and a couple public events and I got three Masterwork drops.

post #965 of 1644

I'll be wanting to break those down myself.  I want my Sturm and Drang upgraded.

 

And speaking of Heroic Strikes, do those not reset on Tuesdays with everything else?  I did one on Saturday with Saxon and Codename, and in my milestones it still says I've done 1 of 3.

 

One more weird thing.  I was on last night, and it the Tower i had that marker telling me to go see Ikora.  you know the marker, the green diamond to follow that they usually have when you need to collect a reward.  She had nothing for me.  Just some gear I couldn't buy and the option to re-play older missions for coins.  but nothing else.  Anyone else have this bug?

Yeah, I've got 1 of 3 Heroic Strikes too. I also had the same issue with Ikora yesterday. Not sure what was going on there.

 

I want to turn my MIDIA mini-tool into a Master Work weapon.

Do y'all have Vanguard Research Tokens in your inventory? If so, that is why she is blinking. She wants you turn in your tokens.

post #968 of 1644

I've done 2 of 3 heroic strikes, a bunch of PEs (including the Mercury Flashpoint), turned into enough gunsmith parts for about 15 weapons, and bought about 12 engrams from random vendors (and Master Rahooligan).  One Masterwork weapon part from all of those legendary weapons (I didn't need or want a Masterlack Fusion Rifle).  Maybe my luck will change tonight!

post #969 of 1644

so up to 9 masterwork cores at this point (without to much serious grinding, just good luck with RNG I suppose). 

 

For the record, I did also receive a masterwork sword with my Call to Arms milestone. For science I decided to infuse that into one of my raid swords. If you're curious, you do not get a core when you use a masterwork weapon for infusion, and the item you're infusing into does not become a masterwork weapon - the 'core' is simply lost. Now we all know. You're welcome :)

Nope. I thought that might be the reason too but apparently I had none to give her.

I have 517 Crucible, 320 EDZ, 130 Vanguard tokens and over 1000 Gunsmith parts. Y'all are saying I need to turn them in for the chance at Masterwork weapons from these vendors?

 

Are the vendors still on a schedule where they occasionally drop max engrams?

 

Glimmer is my bane right now. 2256 shards but 20K glimmer. Can't get a glimmer leg up because of infusion. Probably have another 200 shards in the vault from 300 shit I don't need anymore and weapons I ought to just break down because I am NEVER going to use a sniper or a submachine gun.

Yes, masterworks can come from any of the vendors (got a few of them from Shaxx over lunch this afternoon). Vendors do also appear to still be on schedule for power levels once you hit max power (330 without mods), so you might want to hang onto at least some tolkens. The site I've used is https://vendorengrams.xyz/

 

Not sure really how - but I'm still swimming in glimmer even after infusing the crap out of everything even if it only creeps me up a single power point on any given item. Go figure

I don't know if I do or not, but I didn't even have the option to turn anything in.  And I'm pretty sure I don't have any tokens.

I have them randomly pinging as well, for no discernable reason. I chalk it up to latent Bungie fuckery.

post #975 of 1644
I'll bet it's an artifact of the phantom Faction Rally That Shall Not Be.

Or, they just get off on triggering our OCD, hehe.

post #976 of 1644

I always seem to have only about a dozen shards at any given time, because I keep using them to infuse gear I like to make it more powerful.

I heard you get a bunch after you finish the main campaign.

That was totally me last night.  I'm like "What?  What do you want from me?!?"  Leaves and runs to Cayde.  Run back to Ikora.  "WHAT?!?  WHAT DO YOU WANT?!?!?!?"

Scoop and I are finally online together, we just hit level 6, doing adventures and story in the EDZ. Pretty Scoop is digging this shit.

Feel free to add me up if you guys see me online.  MontyCora#1753.  I'm just exploring the Hive stuff on Titan at a similar level. 

post #982 of 1644

Oddly, I'm on a roll today with the Crucible. I can only imagine that the game has finally started matchmaking me with people far worse, in order to make me feel better. I mean, how else would you explain an enemy team which continually let me get Power ammo so that I could use my heat-seaking rocket launcher during a Control match? It sure is satisfying to watch your rocket fly around a corner and take out three members of the other team standing together at one of the zones! 

post #983 of 1644

Heat seeking rocket launcher?!?

post #984 of 1644

Heh, the Dawning returns next week with a few welcome additions https://www.bungie.net/en/Explore/Detail/News/46547

 

Amusingly - in strikes, you can apparently chuck snowballs at enemies to stun them

 

And (while it took long enough) Mayhem is coming back to the Crucible - for those of you about to embark for the first time - you'll enjoy it.

Morrigan-D! It's been my favorite PVE and PVP Power Weapon for quite some time now. Once it locks on to a target, you're dead 80% of the time. Sooooooo good.

 

 

post #986 of 1644

Can someone explain to me in layman's terms what exactly you do, and do differently, in Crucible, Strike, Raids, Patrols, etc.?

Crucible - Player v Player. Two teams of four have to beat each other in various ways, depending upon the mode randomly chosen by the game (i.e it may just be "kill the other team more times than they kill you!" or it may be "Conquer a certain point on the map and prevent the enemy team from getting control of it"). 

 

Strike - Think of the dungeons we used to run with Reasor in Elder Scrolls Online, only this is designed for three people. 

 

Raid - A longer, tougher Strike but for six people. Meant to be the hardest content in the game.

 

Patrols - A short five minute quest which you can find on planet surfaces. They usually reward tokens which you can give to the main NPC on that planet for weapons. 

 

Does that help?

IO was a fairly short detour.

 

Currently enjoying throwing burning hammers at bad guys.  Still unclear on what "Motes of Light" are, and why I should care that I'm generating them?

 

Public events getting irritating.  I'm trying to do a Patrol, or an Adventure, and I get sidetracked all the time.

Motes of light bump up your Special bar.

Actually...

 

 

 

Motes of Light were a D1 currency. Orbs of light are what you(and Guardians around you) generate that increase your Super meter.

Correction - for me at least the Morrigan-D was my favorite power weapon in PvP. That however, has been replaced by the Ziggy Stardust and its spiders (I'm presuming from Mars). Or, it just might be called the colony - whatever.....

 

post #993 of 1644

Oh, you're right, TzuDohNerd.  Motes of light you get from breaking down things like ships and Sparrows, and you can use as currency at the Eververse.

Mote Emblems are what you trade in to Shaxx for cosmetic items. Get it straight.

Do we have a rough idea when the next expansion will be out? My Titan is currently at 315, and I believe the max Power score is 335 which means I'm obviously reaaaaally close to going as far as I can go before they inevitably raise the max Power again with the next expansion. 

post #999 of 1644

You need to make your two alt characters in the meantime, that way you can contribute three times the clan experience!

Next DLC should be March or April I assume.
