For this second Dallas game of the season I can watch on tv, I hope at least they wait until the 4th quarter before I have to turn off the tv in disgust.

I will admit I'm losing some of my passion for playing especially since my gearing has plateaued at 25.

Are you not interested in levelling up the other two classes?  I'm a few levels below you and still happy with my progression rate, but if I stall out enough to get grumpy with my Hunter I'm really looking forward to seeing how Titan and Warlock play.  As much as Bladedancer really clicks with me, it's hard to not also be jealous of some of the feats I see the other classes pull off in PvP.

Honestly, I'm only logging in to play with you guys, but not seeing positive movement for my Warlock just irks me.   Anyway, I like the game just wish loot dropped more frequently like D3

Are you leveling your faction rep? I think I bought pretty much my entire setup and got to 26 pretty fast. 27 is where it really slows down.

Also note that they nerfed engram drops after any hard wipe, which means that "we've woken the hive" no longer works either for farming.

I'm really annoyed by the Queen nerf.
1. There are a limited amount of runs you can earn per day (some of which are impossible to earn so far)
2. You have to earn those runs by doing things like 200 head shots to Fallen, which takes no small effort
3. Then you have to run the bounty

Isn't all that worth a freaking 2 ascended shards? Plus, it's only available for 2 weeks. They really want you to only be able to get 2 guaranteed shards or energy per day by doing the 28 heroic story? Your other option is to farm events.

The other thing that ticks me off is that they think not enough people are running strike playlists, when it's very obviously because the rewards don't match up to farming events. How about this? Figure out how long it takes on average to run a strike, then figure out how much you earn farming events for that period, and then match it up and add in a slight bonus. Scale it higher for higher difficulty, and you're done. Now more people will do strikes. This is not rocket science, Bungie!

Bat signal out:  I'd really love to do some Queen's Kill Order missions tonight if someone's up for helping me.  I was able to sneak in enough playtime yesterday to grind out three Queen bounties so I'm excited to get my first legendary equipment.

I also finally got my first exotic bounty yesterday.  I had my choice of the fusion rifle, the pulse rifle, and the machine gun.  I went with the MG since I don't care for fusion rifles and Hark seemed to hate the pulse rifle, but the first step of my bounty is to farm chests on Mars and I haven't even gotten to Venus in the storyline yet.   retard   

I'm happy to do some although I'm guessing you are playing late eastern time.

Oddly enough, i didn't.  I did get a ! on the Strike Playlist showing Level 24, though.  Anway, at least I know where it is.  I'm still confused why forgeforsaken has a 5th space for an icon on the map and I do not.  The icons are Queen, Crucible, Weekly Strike and Daily Story (can't remember the order) and then what is the other?
.

Queen's Wrath Bounty.    Just turn in one of her bounties and it will unlock Oh that should be Nightfall the 5th one

What is Nightfall?  How do you unlock that?  Is that a Strike?

Nightfall is the highest level strike - lvl 28 with a number of modifiers, the most punishing being that a team wipe means you have to start over entirely.

It just occurred to me that this game has built in powerlevelling for your other two classes.  Since equipment isn't soulbound, you can just set aside some hand-me-downs from your main and instantly level up your alts from 20 to a level almost as high as your main.

I guess they want the players to spend most of their time in the endgame 20+ content, but it still seems a little contrary for a treadmill levelling game to give such big treadmill shortcuts.

Isn't gear class specific?

Questions:

I'm now level 20. 

How do I join one of the crucible guilds? Visited one yesterday and there was no prompt

Where are the daily missions found?

In the crucible, when melee is fully charged is it a one hit kill?  (I'm a warlock)  I seem to go down alot even with fully charged shields from melee hits.

What does energy drain do practically in the MP?


I know this game is pretty divisive, but I'm really loving it.  Might get back to the story at some point too slywink>

You haven't been doing bounties? You can do those from like level 5.

You gain faction with a clan by buying their class item and wearing it while you play.

so the Queen's bounites equals

Kill 20 Guardians with headshots with a Handcannon
Kill 20 Guardians with headshots with a Scout Riflt
Collect items from Fallen
Run two strikes and kill specific mobs

So, after all this is done a special mission is supposed to open?

It looks like you have to earn a certain amount of queen's favor. I'm hoping they refresh tomorrow so I can ignore the headshot ones.

I've redeemed a few.  I mean  you don't really need that good of gear to play the SP.

this isn't exactly true if you're pushing yourself.

Not sure what this means.

Every mission can be played on "hard" and sometimes there are several levels of hard depending on your level compared to the base level of the mission. Hard can be pretty hard even when you are several levels above the mobs because there are more elites and everything hits harder.

I've been doing my daily heroics on lvl 28 for the last 3 days and they definitely make me work for my ascended materials.

So the black market dude allowed you to buy a strange coin with glimmer this morning. Then exploiters, as exploiters will do, realized if you switched characters you could get another one. Then create and delete characters if you have a slot available and you can do it over and over and over...

You can no longer buy a strange coin from the black market dude.

Raid looks harrrrrd. From what I'm reading most of the streamers have given up partway to get better geared. Which makes sense, really. Raids have traditionally been progression content, not something you beat on the first try.
198  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Destiny -Bungie's new game with Activision on: September 15, 2014, 04:24:16 AM
Leveled up my faction and bought my first legendary piece. I'm just a hair short of 25. Wonder how long the grind to level 3 will be, although the black market trader was selling an exotic helmet this week anyway.

I'm really bad at the MP but I still like it a lot and keep trying to get better even though I complain a lot while playing. I even finished the sniper headshot bounty tonight.

I'm curious to see what they will be adding in the DLC to keep the progression going. I'm able to do the level 22 strike playlist with randoms so I will probably try the level 24 playlist next. I'm sure there are people that put in a lot more hours than me and will probably be trying the raid this week. It's not an MMO, but it has the progression model of an MMO and time to progress seems like it is going to be a lot shorter. That said, stuff like the nightfall strike is probably going to be really hard even for people at level 28, so perhaps the highest level stuff will slow things down a bit.

The scaling you're seeing Teg is the 'heroic' modifier.  Anything above the default applies this, so even if it's 10 levels below you, it will drop more elites.

Well yes, but I'd think that I should still be able to wipe the floor with an elite that is 5 levels below me. That's why I'm wondering if there is still damage scaling along with it?
