Been playing again after taking Season of the Worthy off. Trying to focus on all the areas that are going away, and try to Raid more (not a fan thus far). Finished the Truth, Xenophage & Malfescence quests after putting them off. Trying to get Divinity, but we end up wiping during the final Boss so many times people start dropping out. Still need Anarchy, Wendigo (I know it's being sunset) and a host of Catalysts. Working ridiculous hours with COVID affecting everything. 76 hrs last week, 72 the week before... just don't have much time or energy for this stuff that often. I'm trying though. Finally did the new Dungeon. The group I was with was kind enough to show me all the Urns and Efigy eyes. Tried to solo Heroic Whisper, but quit after 4 failed attempts. May see if the Sperpa that has been helping me will give me a hand. Anyway, hope you all are staying healthy.

I havent played more than 10-20 minutes of Destiny for the past week or so. I should be working on farming raids. Been playing the shit out of Star Wars The Old Republic.

Tried Trials for the first time yesterday. Wasn't planning on winning, just needed 3 rounds for the Summoner Bounty (End Game). Got a Moving Target / Rampage roll that wasn't too bad. The two I got on my alts were not as good, but beggers cannot be choosers. Still need to get 3 wins to turn in what few tokens I have. Keep in mind I'm 52 yrs old and working 70+ hr weeks atm, so my contributions to each round are usually minimal. If I get a kill and don't die right away, its a good round for me.

I actually haven't played since they changed the reward system. Prior you couldn't get anything at all without 3 wins, there werent any bounties. I have a Moving Target/Rampage summoner as well, its not bad.

I never made it past 5 wins but that's fine, i'm just not meant for a flawless i guess, haha. Nice job getting in there though!


So a goal was Conqueror this season or at the very least, routinely run GM Nightfalls to stock up on Ascendant Shards. Week one The Corrupted was a disaster. That Nightfall is an order of magnitude harder than the last two, Savathuns Song and Lake of Shadows. Last night we ran 6 Lake of Shadow's runs back to back taking about 22-25 minutes each and I got a double drop of Shards each time. That's 12 shards from one night of playing. I'm quite happy with the return there.

Oh and here is my on the first run getting booped to death in a totally avoidable situation. Needless to say I looked both ways on subsequent runs.

Been trying to grind out all the stuff that is going away next season. I do mean grind too. I hate grindy content; I'd just as soon go play PvP than play a Strike or adventure over and over. Still, I've managed to wrap up 5 different Exotic quests recently that had been hanging over my head forever. Just got Jotun and Le Monarque, finished Xenophage & Malfescence last week. Still need to finish Divinity & Acrius yet, but getting a group together on my schedule is a challenge (night shift, 70+hr weeks currently). All the random Raid stuff I don't even know how to deal with,, I'll probably never get Anarchy or Thousand Voices.. Also spent some time in the Castellum banging out Catalysts. I had to look up how to finish my Tribute Hall for Juju's Cat. Seems I need to do a bunch of Menagerie to get Calus gear so I can wear it for all the other activities. The list never ends with this game.

Tried Iron Banner again tonight for this week. 3 matches, obvious cheaters. No more for me, I think this is the first time I've really seen it this bad.

On a plus side, 1 week from tomorrow and I'll have me the Harbingers echo. Been wanting that thing for a while but couldn't commit.

yup, I played enough to get my 4 bounties done for the bounty rewards and that was it, on a plus side I got the quest done to unlock my witherhorde catalyst so hurray! lol

edit: went to the moon and 1 man tier 1 and 2 sorrows over and over with wither and got my catalyst in 20 min lol

Event has started today, I'm about 85% done progressing my blue (renewed) armor. Just have adventures and crucible kills to go now. Just a big fyi, if you have the requirement for orbs in crucible/gambit it does not work in gambit prime! You can only generate orbs in regular gambit, I was getting about 30 orbs per round, took 2 matches to get the 100 needed.

My goal is to hit majestic and buy the glow with bright dust, the glow costs 6000 bright dust and im sitting just shy of 13k lol

So last Monday a storm rolled through my State with over 100 mph winds. I legit thought we were having a tornado. I came out of it with minimal damage (lost a tree and my garage door), but there are a ton or people with trees through their roofs, windows out, vehicles destroyed, and we have been without power or cell phone service for 2 days. I just got basic service back tonight and am posting this from my phone. No power at home yet, but still have to go to work where we have generators. Charging my phone as I type this.

In any respect, haven't been able to log in for a couple days so I haven't started on Soltice yet. Eager to jump in... after I replace everything in my fridge and replace my door. Already feel like I'm "behind". This game truly is an addiction.

Dumb question: If I have the full set of Majestic Solistice Armor from the last time this event was up is there really any point in doing another round on this?

if you want the glows then grinding out the first upgrade to get to majestic and buying the glow universal ornament all you need, you cant buy the glows until you have upgraded to majestic. Once you do the glows becomes an ornament you can use on ANY new armor not just solstice stuff. If your play regularly you probably have more than enough bright dust, its 6000 dust per class for the glows.

Got all the white glows but the legs on my warlock (main). No desire to do that again for the other characters. Really don't wanna do trials for the last piece. I guess it's a good thing I run transversive steps 99% of the time so I don't really care as much.

Any idea if the solstice set is supposed to become masterworked upon getting all the glows completed?

It's a different set of armor with a different appearance and different stats. The bad part about the Solstice armor from last year is that the stats were comically bad. Most of it had 48 stat points or less in some cases. It was horrendous and basically vendor trash. It's also super old in that it doesn't accept seasonal mods that are relevant to the current content. In short, the armor from last year is crap. This armor has a chance at being better. I don't know if I'd go so far as to say its worth it, but at least there are the ornaments. If you like the style, you can use them on any gear past present and future.

It's masterworked the same way it was last year. Essentially, anyway. Also, after your first character is done, there is a x2 and x3 multiplier for your second and third characters making the process less daunting a second or third time around.
