You use it to buy legendary gear from The Speaker.

Calling what the speaker sells legendary gear is a bit of a stretch.  It's more legendary aesthetic items.   Xur on the other hand will sell you a legendary engram for motes of light.

Thanks to Unity and my invulnerable follower, I can solo T6 with relative ease.  Built two Hellfire amulets, both ok passives for my Crusader so my next task will be to farm up materials to make them for my other characters.

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 on the PS4 and if so what's your name on there? I'm at the same spot as you, I would love to do the Queen missions but they are too hard solo, and the game doesn't auto group it for you. Which means it's next to impossible to pug the mission since Destiny's chat and group finding is non existent.

I mostly play from 5:30 am until 7 am and then again from 9:00 pm until 12 eastern time.

I can help you out Scraper, I'm on PS4 and can usually handle them solo.  Think I'm at level 27 roughly now.

More missions that require having level 3 queen faction today - is it even possible for someone to have gotten level 3 yet?

Pretty sure it's not.  Keep in mind Salvage still shows up in the bounty list sometimes too, and that hasn't been playable for over a week.

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 earn faction rep by purchasing their class vanity item and wearing that.  As long as you have that equipped all rep you earn goes to that faction, this includes Vanguard and Crucible rep so you want to ensure that you only equip it for the crucible as the faction vendors only take crucible marks.  

Daily missions are on the left of the screen when you go to select destination, these are different from bounties which you get from the bounty board in the tower.

Glycerine,  check out Sports Friends (which is free with plus I think right now) and Tower Fall.  They are both retro couch games to be played 2-4 players.

here's a tip not sure if it was mention but before turning in bounties equip any gear you want to level.  Don't give XP to gear that is fully leveled that your don't plan on keeping

I also ran a few crucible matches and finally managed a decent game.  I may be officially too old for this shit.  MP doesn't seem particularly suitable for the Scout/Sniper rifle build I favor as the range of most fights is handgun/shotgun range. 

Depends on the map.  I had to grab 4 more melee kills for a Crucible bounty, no problem do that quick in a Clash match right?  So it's the Moon map, barely managed to get 2 of the 4, it was all snipers and vehicles.

Anyone have a dummies guide to all the daily/weekly game chores I should be doing? 

  • I should be getting 100 marks every week before the cap resets on Tuesday
  • I should be doing a "daily heroic?"  What's that, the strike mission?
  • There's also a "weekly heroic?"
  • Raids are different than the strike missions, and not yet in the game?  Are they going to have time limits?
  • Other stuff?

Try to clear all your daily bounties.  Consider them like dailies in WoW
Daily Heroic is a story mission pushed up to level 20+.  Can be done solo or with a fireteam.   I suggest finding a FT.   
Daily Strike Mission  is for a fireteam.  If you click it you will be placed in a group
Daily Crucible is just a rotating PvP game type
There is a Weekly Strike that gives 3 strange coins (vendor only appears on Friday and Saturday.  He was gone on Sunday)
Vault of Glass just unlocked today and is a Raid.  Light level 26 minimum

Seriously, just jump into party chat with us and we'll set you straight and you will normally find a group do some runs of to help you with a run

I'm pretty sure the Daily/Weekly Strike will not put you in a group.  I'll need to double check, but I believe that was one of the instances where matchmaking is disabled.

I've had mostly good luck with randoms on strikes.  A few drops here and there, but most of the time some decent teamwork, pointing out chest locations, and a wave/salute upon completing the strike with occasional dancing, though I'm too old for that last bit and just sit down to rest..
Is everyone on the FT able to loot the same chest during a strike mission? 

I think so?

More and more I feel the comparison to launch Diablo 3 is apt.  There's a really solid foundation here, but there's a lot of weird quirks and things that could be improved.  I hope they are able to fine tune it like Blizzard did over time with D3.

When you beat the game you can select 20+.  You can't alter patrol difficulty or strike difficulty.   Strikes are weird because there are level 20+ versions of all the strikes that are in the strike playlist.  Makes some of the strike bounties annoying to take as it's either do the low level one or hope you get it in random.

Wait - so I can redo all my story missions at lvl 20, where the monsters are lvl 20 as well? I DID NOT KNOW THIS! I am lvl 20 and just signed up for the strike missions last night.

My turn to share a tidbit - If you unlock a subclass at level 15, every character, whether created or not, will have their subclass unlocked from the start.
Oh that is good to know.  Making a blade dancer hunter will certainly be less tedious.

Is faction rep carried over between characters?  God I hope so.

I went from Day One no doubt purchase to not touching this game with a ten foot pole based on the beta gameplay alone. When you couple that with how desperately Bungie seemed to be trying to deflect criticism before the game was even released, I don't find it surprising that the scores are middling.

Say what you will about Polygon, but the Giant Bomb guys are usually pretty reliable. And all except for one was really "meh" on the game when they discussed it in their podcast before the review.

I have no doubt the game will probably get better as they add DLC and whatnot. The question is whether or not anybody will still be playing. The next six to nine months are going to be utterly packed with big budget titles.

The GB guys are idiosyncratic.  Jeff has really weird taste in FPS games, Syndicate was exceptionally middling and he LOVED it.  They were all also super late to the D.Souls party.

This is starting to pull lower scores than Watch Dogs.

I'm enjoying it a million times more than Watch Dogs.

Same, I abandoned Watch Dogs at maybe the 30% mark.  Already level 20 in this and finished the story, which absolutely is a pile of nonsense but not in a way that is offensive to the player like Watch Dogs was.

Yes it is. It's more forgiving than most shooters, but it's still a shooter.

The combat is even fairly close to Destiny, shoot, throw grenade, engage melee, retreat to cover while shields regenerate, repeat.

I meant it's not an FPS. My bayd.

Hmm. Is infamous 2S 1st person?  Or is it like Gears? 3PS but with FPS aiming?  Because an FPS is muuuuuch different than a 3PS even if that's true.

Unless you mean the act of launching a projectile of any kind is ritt's achilles heel. slywink

It's a 3rd person shooter in an open world with strong traversal mechanics.  Saint's Row 4 is probably not that far off mechanically if you've played that.

Don't charge in to groups of enemies and run away when your health gets low.  At least early on, enemies won't chase you.  There's plenty of cover, so just take out some enemies, run and hide and recharge, then head back in.  Also, melee attacks are very powerful.  They'll take out most enemies in one hit and stagger the rest so you can finish them off with a shotgun blast.

I think Ritt's bigger problem is he's just not comfortable with shooter controls with a controller.  As I recall he had a lot of trouble with Infamous as well.

Infamous is not a 'shooter'. Maybe Ritt is just uncomfortable with gaming in general.

Infamous absolutely is a shooter, have you played it specifically Second  Son?  Left trigger aim, right trigger shoot.  It's 3rd person and there are melee attacks but to argue it's not a shooter is like arguing Gears of War isn't either.

I'm level 8 now, and just started with the Moon. Things got stupid there in the gameplay department. Enemies on hoverbikes are suddenly coming after you, and you can barely fight back since your regular weapons don't do any worthwhile damage to them and your own hoverbike doesn't even have any weapons. It forces you to run around looking for a spare bike, which tends to trigger more enemies that you have to fight off in the middle of all this. Annoying, to say the least.

You can snipe them right off the bike, their health is separate from the bike.

According to veteran D3 players, the wizard class is considered bottom tier along with the monk before patch 2.1, though this kind of ranking doesn't mean much until the higher Torment levels apparently.

I myself haven't got much to compare with yet as I tend to stick with one class. I've got my wizard on PS4, and monk on PC. It's so typical of me to choose the worst ranked classes/characters in games. Tongue

Wizards once upon a time were the most powerful class by far. I wonder when that changed, at one point if you weren't playing a wizard you'd get kicked out of pub games.

There are more factors than sheet DPS.  My Crusader's sheet DPS is only ~450k.  She can do T6 runs but for speed sticks to T5.  Her primary attack crits for 10M and her secondary crits for 35M and she can use it essentially nonstop.
