That GM is tough but do-able. My hunter is still far and away ahead of my other characters and likely always will be so I used Aztecross's tips as logically as I could with the Hunter and it took about 3-4 tries with randoms and the last crew got it.

A team sporting both Witherhoard and Anarchy is essential as far as I'm concerned.

Finally got the rolls of the ignition code (blinding, slideshot, and vorpal) and stochastic variable (FF, mkc) that I've been after all season back to back yesterday. I think I used up all my good RNG for the next year or so. I'm not sure I'm gonna be falling in love with the slideshot ignition like all the streamers are. I just don't feel coordinated enough to slide, shoot, slide shoot, especially with every little 1/4" bump hitting like a brick wall. I'll practice with it though. The Stoch. Var. though, that gun is amazing.Not quite Recluse 2.0, but probably as close as we're gonna get.

Also finally hit the pinnacle cap on the warlock after spending ~two weeks just needing gloves to drop. Finally.

Nice! Slideshot breach loaders are some toxicity in PVP. I can easily just slay out with them and it just feels unfair. Granted, I was a breach loader user all the way back in D2Y1 when they were heavies and Fighting Lion but yeah. With the shotty and 120 nerf i have a feeling breach loaders are going to be next on the chopping block.

Tried to go on and getting that at capacity countdown message. Forget it.

EDIT: Finally things seem stable.

Ground through the first two stages of the Armor. Now it wants Dungeons, GM's and Raids to complete it. :banghead: Thanks Bungie.

Had 0 intentions of participating in this even buuuut really didn't see anything else to do so I ended up unlocking the final set yesterday on my Warlock. Got 2 of the 5 white glow things done yesterday really easily. I can't imagine doing this on all 3 characters, even with the bumps in progression. No thank you.

I've been trying different loadouts to figure out what I might like once Anarchy gets the hammer. I know it's not everyones cup of tea, but I got one of the new 120 GL's with chain reaction and I love it. Rockets just feel way too stingy with ammo, swords are right on the edge (imo) of being worth the close range/damage balance. I've been running dual ammo finder and ammo scavenger mods with salvo/ignition code with anarchy so I've been kinda spoiled on the heavy ammo front.

Well, gave the Master VOG a shot. I'm 1337 and that was ROUGH. I ended up having to hop off pretty early, after a few shots at the oracles. Clan took it from there and made it to the gatekeeper yesterday and called it a day.

Also, this is a GREAT week to farm GM's since this week's is about as easy as they get. Maxed out my prisms and shards again and got a few good adept rolls of the Hung Jury. Still chasing the rapid hit / explosive payload adept roll (I have a non-adept one).

FYI - for you warlocks, if you haven't run Eyes of Another World with the stasis turrent....I recommend you try it out! I run a 100 recov/disc build and that REALLY helps in GM's. It was my go-to strat for last week's nightfall. It made the GM manageable and the Master a piece of cake.

Shit guys, everytime I log into this game I don't know what the f to do first. So much shit and I feel like I'll never get everything done. Do you guys have a list ordered by priority of what tf to do? I like pew pew but nothing worse than doing something for nothing

Depends on what you want from the game. If you're trying to build some decent gear, then most the weapons that drop from the Expunge and Override activity are pretty good with a nice perk pool. It is fairly easy to get good rolls. If you need good armor, then you may want to grind out the Solstice activity until you have access to the Vendor's final booster (gold), as this can crop very high stat armor. For upgrade materials, you're just going to want to run as high a Nightfall difficulty as you can muster.

Apart from that, I say just do whatever you find fun. The benefit of having so much to do, is that you can drill into one area until you get bored or burnt out, and then go do something completely different.

Really decided to expand my playtime in GM's this season. Should have the conqueror title this coming week. Just need to run Insight Terminus and I should be good to go.

Got another, possibly better, Adept Palindrome with Outlaw/Rampage. Loving it so far, as it's about as good as a handcannon gets in PVE.

Managed to get the Timelost Fatebringer the other day. Mine came with hammer forged, steady rounds, wewind wounds, and frenzy, range mw in addition to the usual perks. That is one fantastic handcannon. Not that difficult if your entire team is leveled and has the appropriate gear.

So, I haven't come back to this game in a few years but from what I understand now, all the money I paid to the expansions in the past has been flushed down the toilet along with the content, and now I need to buy the game again or I can only have a few minutes of demo time on something I've probably already spent $200 on? Is that about right?

Frraksurred I went and got good at the game. Finally managed to get Conqueror, and then Gilded last week. Glassway grandmaster is no joke.

NICE!! I struggle with GM's, still do them from time to time, but not often. Don't think I'd make it through Glassway though; be hard carried if I did, lol. Just getting too :oldman: for this shiii... stuff.

Been off re-living some of my old BioWare favs. After Mass Effect Legendary Edition came out I had to play through all 3 games, then started a new playthrough of Dragon Age Inquisition. About 170 hours into it and still not done (my crafted gear is exceptional however 🦸‍♂️ ). Did manage to drag myself back into Destiny for this Season's finale (or near finale), and I'm excited for where the story is going.

Finally got moved to days after, what... near 10 years now. Officially had the job for the last 2 years but we've been so short staffed they couldn't / wouldn't move me. Working 12's just about every day, but at least I'm finally here. Hoping that means I'll be around more often when all you normal people are up. :D

Anyone know if power level for this next season will be a boost of 10 or a boost of 50?

Should be 10. They stated awhile back that people (like myself) were unhappy with having to grind out 50 light levels a season and went to a +10 light incremental model instead.

Managed to get the vex mythoclass catalyst today, I was never going to bother with it until I seen the TWAB. Found a group that basically just Sherpa/carried me through the entire catalyst procedure lol. Pretty sure vex is going to be a super viable weapon in game for both PvE and PvP. Im excited to try it out next week, this weekend will be kill grinding with it to get the catalyst unlocked.

Edit: went to the moon and participated in 1 altar of sorrows and had 30% (roughly) of the catalyst completed already. Will finish tomorrow but it's not going to take nearly as long as I though to unlock lol

Witch Queen hype reveal today. It's not coming out until February 22, 2022 so wake me up when that happens.

In the meantime, we know season 15 starts today and I'm skeptical about some of the changes in that TWAB going into it but overall it should go well enough.

Tantalizing.

What happened to wake you up in Feb? :ROFLMAO::LOL::ROFLMAO:

For real tho, the story is getting good and the new events/fights/whatever are pretty cool.

I meant so far as the hype for Witch Queen. ;) So far so good. I like this setup.

Freeze and crashing issues with this game since the update. Apparently, I'm not the only one. Anyone else? Yes I've done verify files and checked drivers and all that.

Nope, it's even been plaguing my Xbox series x. I've had 3 lockups now all at the end of a crucible match. I have to go back to the home screen and close the game when it happens, also seen tons of people having issues with CTD on the of version on reddit

Oh also, If you know you're gonna preorder the witch queen expansion GMG has a promo for 20% off, this is probably the cheapest it'll be. Use coupon code "SAVENOW" at checkout. Standard, deluxe, 30th pack, deluxe + 30th, all 20% off.

I've only been able to basically complete the intro story mission so far and had the game crash twice. I did manage to get through it on the 3rd time. Haven't touched it since, but that was right at launch.

I could be kidding myself but I also feel like I've lost maybe 15-20 fps *at times* and my GPU is running a little hotter than before. I will have to look through patch notes and see if they changed or "bumped up" anything. My settings look the same so not sure if there is anything to that or not. I have no reason to believe I have any problems with my machine so far.
