I'm valguardTVE5676 for you and anyone else interested in adding me who hasn't.

2 for 2 on Palis on 1270? Dang. I may just go ahead and try that myself for grins.

Ha, I’m no longer at 100%....more like 40%.

I’m FranksSister. Also....I’m a dude, lol.

Both of you are on ym friends list, BadGrandpa I'm on almost every evening during the week and then nights on weekends

I ran the heroic version probably 30 times last night I got one drop. Corkscrew rifling, ricochet rounds, killing wind, high impact reserves w/handling masterwork. On the plus side I built my pile of enhancement cores back up.

I did 3 Nightmare 1300s with two randoms and we all clicked. For three runs? I got basically diddly squat. :rolleyes:


Outlaw/Rampage - didn't Bungie say they wanted to get rid of this combo :LOL:

That's awesome. Whenever I see that on anything that's an instant keeper. Having a Pali with that is a god roll as far as I'm concerned.

Nightmare hunts? Is anything good supposed to drop from them anyway?

*edit*

Oh did you mean Nightfalls? :-P

Solo flawlessed the new mission. For some reason I decided I was gonna get hung up at the compactor room a couple of times. Had no issues with it before, but there you go. Gonna try and farm some nightfalls again.

Honestly, not focusing solely on the power grind, the season pass levels, or the hammer stuff has been awesome. I've just been playing what I want when I want.

Nightfalls.


So get this. I did a 1270 because I'm using those to finish up Points Piercing Forever and and that exotic grenade launcher respectively (forgot name off top of head but was discussed earlier in thread)... first 1270 what happens? A Pali drops with Bottomless Grief and High Impact Reserves and I got a new vehicle (Tilt Fuse.) This really IS some random RNG!

I forgot to mention earlier: One the team of randoms during the 1300s three peats that we did... the one guy was using Cloudstrike and just making our jaws drop. Too bad I'll never get it unless I ever get into the raid.

Cloudstrike is easy to farm for, no raid required! It was available last season too and never required anything raid related, just spamming Empire hunts (there is more too it, read below)

https://www.polygon.com/destiny-2-g...m-guide-sabotage-europan-explorer-empire-hunt

It was severely nerfed unfortunately. For a bit it was pretty insane paired with Divinity. Nightfalls with a Divinity and two Cloudstrikes could decimate all champions, even on GM.

I had 4 of those Tilt Fuse drop yesterday when I was farming 1270s

Bout to start farming the 1270s again (I dont do random groups for the stuff that requires a prebuilt team, I dont need random try hards telling me how much I suck)

Back to gambit.. As good as Palindrome is, 120's are where its at.. Bottom Dollar's drop rate is absolutely abysmal. Probably 30-40 matches since the season launched? Not a single drop.

I hate Gambit man. LOL. I guess I'll at least do the weekly there and get what I get. I've heard Bottom Dollar is damned near impossible at the present rate.

I like all HCs. Ace is still on my shortlist of all time favorite go to weapons.

This was nuts: After I posted here some of us did a couple of 1300 Nightfalls. First time I got two exotic engrams, second time a Pali dropped with outlaw and thresh. Right now I have two really good Palis. I'll probably take a few more runs at it and see what's what.

Glad you got one! I only got a couple of the rocket launchers I hadn’t seen before. Royal Entry I think it is.

I tried my hand at Gambit afterward and I just can’t go through a crazy grind on one of my least favorite modes for a weapon that’s gonna be sunset. I may try a couple games here and there but mostly I’ll stick to the 3 weekly games.

Ran six Gambit matches and got two drops on the Trinary System fusion rifle. That's it. I'll plug away at it.

Igneous Hammer... I basically don't play Trials because I'm terrible. Randoms understandably don't stick it out with me for long. I'd like to play it for obvious reasons but no question I'll have to have some patient help. I can play Crucible well enough and Iron Banner even better (for some reason) but there's something different about Trials. It's hard.

Oh, i'm aware and i'm also aware i'm sure not getting that one until the non-adept is a 3 win reward :-P

Only need 10 losses to finish the bounty!

Wait. I can lose and still get this thing? Now you've got my attention. Who wants to carry my sorry butt and get this thing done? I seriously haven't been in Trials for months. I wrote the game mode off outright. That thing looks like a fantasy gun. If I can even get a good Bottom Dollar that will be "good enough" for me. Wowsers.

Not this weekend, its the flawless only reward. Once the normal, non-adept version is the "3 wins" reward, you can get progress on the weekly bounty even if you lose. 10 straight losses and you'll complete the bounty and get whatever the 3-win reward is. If you really stick with it past that and complete enough daily bounties, you might be able to turn in enough trials tokens for another roll, too.

That's almost doable.

Well I guess the worst case scenario will be is this: Fire up Destiny app... make fireteam... go in. Lose. Person quits on me. Rinse and repeat a zillion times. Maybe get something done. LOL.

Any and all tips for attempting to survive Trials appreciated. I really need all the help I can get. I don't understand how the heck I can roll in Crucible and especially IB decently enough and even lead teams on occasion but be so hideous in there. Is it because I'm up against the Raid Elite gods and those people? Because it's brutal.

I’m not even qualified for Trials yet, I need to play Elimination.

Looks like I do, too. Well... I'm game sometime later today. If I can get two suckers...um, excuse me...teammates to come into that nightmare with me and we all make our peace with probably losing a bunch of times mostly because of me then I want to gut it out and try and get something off the ground while it's up. Ideally I am hoping I would finally start to "get it" like I did the rest of the PVP content.

Keep in mind, if you're interested in that hand cannon, its not available from the bounty this week. Right now its the Astral Horizon shotgun and unfortunately they neutered all the good rolls on it.

Ok. I am just going to try and take a few turns just to get a feel for it and take the pain. I'll go in with a pretty good loadout that would normally work well for me in Crucible and get what I get. LOL.

Didn't look to see what minimum level requirement was, but I don't think I'll attempt Trials until I'm 1300. At least I'll get some lucky shots in here and there instead of watching them laugh at me even when I get the drop on them.

If you really stick with it past that and complete enough daily bounties, you might be able to turn in enough trials tokens for another roll, too.

You'll also need to get 3 wins on one card to be able to turn in your Tokens unfortunately (unless they changed that) Remember to reset your card before you get 3 loses or you will have to get a new one. The exception of course is if you already have a couple wins on it as well. I reset after each lose until I get a win. Lastly, I always buy the Mercy, because I suck, lol. Gives a single lose for free.

I only play Trials when the 3 win reward is something I really want. The HC and Pulse both look best in class this season. Still investigating the rest.

I need to qualify in Elimination to get into Trials as well. I have to get 50 kills in Elimination, correct?


I finished up Points Piercing Forever and decided to kill a couple of birds with one stone: Hit Gambit, get kills, see if I get lucky on a Bottom Dollar drop. So I sail through some wins and losses and when the fourth round was done...pretty sure a win...Bottom Dollar drops. Rangefinder and Explosive Payload. That's pretty darned good.

I decided I had to break in the new toy and switched out Ticcu for Bottom Dollar and for grins go for a few more. Believe it or not a second Bottom Dollar dropped after another win a couple of rounds later. I had played a total of at least six rounds in an hour or so. Pure luck. This second Bottom Dollar has Killing Wind and Explosive Payload. These have to drop on wins. I can't imagine this dropping on a loss but you never know. So play Gambit and crank away at it.

I'm pretty happy with both. :) It's an excellent HC.
