I just feel like suggested LL means nothing anymore. Harbinger definitely felt worse than the 1200 or whatever it originally came tagged with.
Its a complete crapshoot with what they say the light level is and how it actually affects you. I remember this being a thing back in Whisper. All those ads hit harder than any other taken yet we were all "on level" for the content. Bungie really needs to figure that out.

Oh, its also timed. :)

Harder is fine.... but timed? I'm just gonna nope out now. Knew that would probably happen though. I'm barely to 1290 with my artifact, haven't even tried a Legendary Lost Sector this Season yet. I should be ready by the last week of the Season. :cry:

Yeah, 1320 Power with a timer, not sure what its set to though.

I can be 1312 if I infuse which will be on delta.. i just hope it isn't locked loadout. :eek:

I'm sure a couple of us can help get up you through it. I was charging pretty fast through it solo until I got error'd and I'm only 1308-ish with the artifact. Of course, I do tend to thrive in that hard solo environment in pve.

Edit: So the mods are mob, equipment locked, match game, and chaff.

Ok, beat Master on the first try with literally 2 seconds to go. That was rough.

You have NO room for mistakes. Making good use of warmind cells and all its associated mods is extremely helpful, as is anarchy to tag the boss so you still do tick damage when you go back upstairs.

Solo? Wow.

What was your loadout and all?

Like all catalysts, you can finish the kills required in about 20 minutes in the Shattered Throne thrallway or at Shuro-Chi. Holy crap, this catalyst is good. If you already loved this gun... this cat makes it insane.

Sure... it's a nice fantasy. LOL. I like Altar of Sorrows a lot for quick and easy kills and grinds. Shattered Throne is another place I don't really want to see again but I'll keep it in mind if I ever get this done.

So I now have 2 decent rolls of the dead man scout, got a vorpal that adds a nice punch for pve and an outlaw+accurized rounds for pvp. Pairing outlaw+2 scout reload+ophidian aspects and I can reload an entire clip in no time, with the accurized rounds and arrowhead break its so smooth and consistent in pvp. I also started getting into the habit of reloading after every 2-3 kills and I can keep 5 stacks of spikes going forever now as long as I have enemies to shoot and it reloads so fast it feels like it never truly reloads lol. Next step is to try and get the masterwork but im still only at 1272 so that will be a while off.

Now if someone wants they can get a Dead Man drop per week in "regular" Presage right?

The Master is for the catalyst and a whole different animal. Any more scannables or anything we have to look out for yet?

Someone warned me about Master and the 25 minutes:

Know that you have to beat the boss with at least three and a half minutes left. Because the timer continues to run until the mission end countdown begins and that takes a couple of minutes for some reason even after you steal the rifle from the dead guardian.

That's some kind of BS right there.

Seems so.

Yup, I posted those video's above.

Hm, we beat it with a few seconds left and the timer immediately stopped.

Good. I wanted to make sure I got all that info straight.

I'm running in the mid 1300s. I am going to try and get up some more as much as I can. Were you guys 1320s when you went in? What kind of loadout (s) would you recommend?

I was 1311 and the other two were 1309 and 1310.

You really have to strategize a loadout with all 3 people as you need to make sure you can cover all 3 elemental shield. I ran a kinetic vorpal sniper, void handcannon and solar LMG (Xeno) with Wrath of Rasputin and Rage of the Warmind for warmind cell explosions. The other two ran Anarchy in their heavy slot which was instrumental in the boss defeat. You can stick the boss then jump back up while he ticks damage. Pop back down, stick him again then jump back up to safety.

Its rough, my heart was beating a mile a minute during that last damage phase. I'll be honest, i'm not totally thrilled on even thinking of doing that again. I absolutely cannot carry anyone, you really need 3 people on their game to get through that last fight if you get in the room with 5 minutes left like we did. I actually had to step away from the PC for a few minutes afterwards LOL

Just ran the master version with 2 randoms on LFG and beat it with about 4 minutes left on the clock. Definitely recommend coordinating weapons with the shields because we didn't and I just used Anarchy to take down shields when needed. Also, don't try to speedrun through the parts where you get the buff to run through the goop, you'll leave someone behind as it takes a second to be able to shoot the plants again. We were all around 1305-1310. That really is a fun mission. Screebs got me once in the compactor and once in the boss fight. Those things were terrifying.

I ran transversive steps for the speed, the new smg with surplus/frenzy, ikelos smg, and anarchy. That was a good time, gets the heart going.

Ha, they were the highest light level items I had so I just went with it. That new SMG is a beast with Frenzy....and warmind cells in the ikelos smg can't be beat. At least one of the other guys had Anarchy on as well.

I don't like the "no resurrection"/wipe mechanic as a difficulty gate. Especially with the timer. And the current (past, present, future) ammo economy. And the champion enemies.

You don't like Champions? I think they're one of the coolest additions in a long time.
Yeah I don't like having to equip a mod and specific weapon type just to take out one bullet sponge. I was not a fan of Doom Eternal either, and I know that's a contrarian opinion :LOL:

I can see that. However I think they offer enough opportunities each season to mix up how you deal with them. Last season's overload stasis grenades were great fun. This season i'm loving anti-barrier snipers. Unstoppable is usually something I hate but with the new hand cannons this season, I'm using one more often so I don't mind.

Annnnnd....

Just got a Bottom Dollar FINALLY. It's got outlaw/disruption break with extended barrell/polygonal rifling & appended mag/flared magwell with a handling mw. Not what I would have hoped for, but I at least got one. I can wait now for if/when they buff the drop rates.

Who is Frank's Sister on here? I have my screenames mixed up.

Well thanks to him and another guy I just got the Dead Man's Catalyst. I also got a Dead Man with vorpal on it. My other has snapshot so those are two good ones.

We had something like two minutes left on the clock if even that. I started to almost a crack a sweat! Whew that was intense. I also was able to scan that wrecked chalice of opulence in that final room below the platform where the rifle is at the end. We were flying through there so I really didn't scan anything else.

I re-ran Pressage on normal for the new scannables, secret compartment and a new roll on the Exotic. Roll was meh, so I used it to update the level of my original 4th Times a Charm / Ricochet Rd one. Once I get over 1300 I may start harassing some of my buddies to try for the Catalyst, but I've done this thing like 6 times now and I still forget which way to go at times. We'll get to the Boss and I'll blow myself up with my own Grenade Launcher or something. I'm not looking forward to it.

That’s a me! Glad you were able to get that catalyst. It’s a fun mission. :)
