    Unfortunately we are full with a waiting list. You can however check out EternalKnights and Genmay, both have Forum members in them.

    Another 20 minutes worth of challenging level shot to shit because of this stupid enemy stuck behind wall/door glitch. Any help for it? I can't believe they haven't fixed this yet. This one is in the DUA Stronghold.

    EDIT: Group suicide does work. But gee whiz.

    I have hit the grind wall. drops aren't giving me good stuff anymore. Like everything is 486-498 drops and a very rare occasions I get 500 drops but tends to be mods more than something I can actually use. Im GS 506 but nothing else really to work with......i have some stuff i recaled but im looking to get stuff for a better build out right now its decent but i want to squeeze more out of it.

    I've eased off. I'm only going for deliberate things I want like the exotic weapons.

    Past this I have to admit that I find myself at the point I was in Division 1 where I'm starting to play less and will ultimately stop until a major update. I enjoy playing it but I have never been a big "grind just for the sake of grinding" person.

    Yea at this point my clan just does the weekly invaded missions and the occasional hunter masks.... which reminds me.
    Anyone having issues getting the hunters spawn and the contaminated zone and the one where yu have to salute outside of the water? Still can't get them to spawn after doing the steps.....

    I'm in the same boat. Unlike Destiny, when I log in, I'm not even sure what to do. I know what I can do but no real desire to do it. What will I get? More gear with random rolls that'll likely not be better than what I have?

    I've got all the exotics already so I don't know what to do besides wait for the raid.

    Some of my bros and I only log in to hang out or do bounties or other little side projects - like try for exotics or hunter masks or golden parachutes or test out new builds.

    Right now I'm just accumulating points in each of the specializations to "max" them out (on just the stuff I want - not the full 160 but about 130-140). I still have to finish Sharpshooter, so still have room to goof around with purpose.

    Sounds like we're all in a similar boat. I've all the Exotics so far, save one; all the Hunters; a Build I like, done the majority of the Commendations... and now my interest is passing until the next content drop. Mostly because the game drops gear 10-20 levels lower than mine so I cannot improve anything, I don't know what Talents are going to survive the nerfs, grinding level 3 CP's for BP's has gotten so tedious I cannot force myself to do it anymore, and there are still enough bugs in certain areas to make the grind pointless anyway. I'm just in a holding pattern for the most part... sounds like many of us are.

    That was a pain in the ass. Default to night for it... shoot the light on the left that shines on the memorial...stay out of the water...and just salute kind of behind the flag and near it and do it until you get lucky. After a point it gets dumb. I had to have help doing it.

    We finally got it to spawn last night. No clue how because we had some random mobs show up while we started trying and of course when my buddy went to take down the mobs the hunter spawned.....We ended up getting all but 1 mask which is the specter mask......can't seem to figure out why he won't spawn after shooting out the windows (in the correct order) Left to right from bottom first.

    Exotics and masks are about all I'm casually shooting for. The D50 I've largely given up on. RNG can kiss my ass. Something needs to be tweaked. If I get a D50 drop while I'm doing something else then great but I'm not going to go out of my way for it.

    Yea RNG hates you because I have had 5 diff D50s including 3 high ends. Although I haven't gotten the exotic rifle yet.....not that I have been farming for it.

    Still hanging around GS499, but have been getting on average 1 or 2 GS500 gear a night, so hope to at least GS500 by the weekend. (If not higher) Most of the higher GS stuff i get tends to come from the caches you open when you get a level strangely enough.
    Been trying challenging missions lately and last night tried a 4 Control Point. Did pretty well all things considered but i tend to get swamped and killed just as i'm getting near the end of it so ended up dying a few times. Still was fun though. (Practice Practice Practice :) )

    I spent over an hout yesterday on a lvl 4 CP and won in the end, I died a couple times and had to start over even had to switch out the sniper for an LMG as I was out of ammo for the AR.

    Try upgrading armor for a higher GS, you can pretty easily get 510+ pieces like that, even if you don't intend to keep using that piece, it will boost the lvl of the new drops.

    I did that here with some of the clan members here at least a month ago now and determined it was absolutely not worth it IMO. It was absolutely insane. I won't do it again.
    I get 500 gear drops all the time and I think you're right: Recalibration is the only way to break 500.

    Is anybody else getting Foxtrot or Mike errors while trying to connect? I've been trying to connect all morning with no luck, live in Seattle if that matters.

    I got a Foxtrot error once last night but it connected (albeit slowly) the next time I tried.

    True on CP toughness.
    Finally got the CP done i was working on but just the same level drops in that one. Did the recalibration route and got 2 500+ upgrades so my GS is now GS504. Actually getting pretty good with the sniper rifle which helps on the CP's. :)
    Every now and then i'll be loading and the game will just crash. (As in loading an area then just the desktop with no warning. restart is fine though and crashes happen rarely)

    Finally happened in the Basin: D50 drop! Liberty is mine. :)


    Let me be clear on this: If you have the blueprints and you want to upgrade an exotic like Liberty, Chatterbox, etc... the ONLY way to get exotic components is to dismantle other exotic weapons, yes? There's no other way? (If that's the case it's going to be quite a while)

    Yeah. I happened to have 4x components after dismantling my first Chatterbox and Liberty because I didn't, at the time, know how up upgrade them to gear score. So, this both gave me alot of work (re-farming for all the parts) and put me in a good position with 4x Exotic Components from dismantling them.

    Now I know the vendor in the Whitehouse sells a blueprint that allows you to upgrade it to max gear score, but this ONLY seems to show up in his inventory after you've found the exotic.

    Right. I have the blueprints. So I have to dismantle exotics and that's the only way to do it? No other way to get exotic components? If that's the case then I'll have to pick my spots on that. I'm not in any hurry.

    From what I can tell, yes. You can farm for the LMG in the DZ which is where I got a few more components because that gun is terrible.

    I just dismantled the crappy pestilence once that dropped for me. Horrible gun in every way.

    You can play all of the specializations? I was going to post asking which of the three was best for a solo PvE player.

    if you stick to one you will be throwing away points you can spend on the others. demolitionist is good for explosive and sharpshooter is probably the best for guns even LMG. You will want to max out one then switch to the others and max them out.

    Putting points into the specialties? Are there skill trees or something?

    Kind of. The Specializations so Survivalist, Sharpshooter and Demolitionist. Have you finished the story yet?

    There is a way to cheese the Exotic Components. If you start a second character, and progress them to the Whitehouse where you have access to your Stash, then you can offload one or more of the Exotics from your main, to that alternate character. If an Exotic is not in your Inventory, or in your Stash, then the game currently views you are not having found it yet, allowing you to go farm the parts again.

    Not a short solution by any means, but given the Liberty is fairly easy to farm for (if you have a few spare D50's), you could offload it once or twice and then deconstruct the ones you craft after farming the parts again.

    I hadn't really seen the point in creating an alt. character for any reason... until this post. :)

    Create 3 Alts to level 19 and farm the orange parachute crates for weapon damage mods. Or other mods if you prefer. There's around 32 crates. If you get efficient you can do all 3 in around 90 minutes. :)

    Anyone know if you can trigger Strongholds to be invaded / non-invaded? If so Does it require you to have TB completed to do so?

    The Invaded Stronghold switches each week. After you play it, you can replay it as either Invaded or normal. To do this, when you select the difficulty, look in the bottom right for the option to toggle Invaded or not. Apart from that, there is no way to make a specific Stronghold be Invaded if it is not already that week.

    Ok, thats what i thought. I was just wondering how a bunch of these people were getting the nemisis sniper rifle like 2 weeks after it was announced.....we did miss the capitol building but this week it went to Union arena and we thought it was going to be the capitol.....rather annoying but we were hoping that it would actually be something we could trigger but i guess not.

    If you are waiting for that mission thats for the blueprint. Do you have the other 4(?) components?
    Im waiting for the capitol building to come back around.....once that happens we are set.

    I must be the most unlucky person ever.
    I have no exotic weapon. Have had no part drop for me anywhere on any difficulty. Been opening different faction crates/boxes and nothing.
    Im at GS50#, been for a while now.
    If this goes on for much longer, ill probably be moving on from this game...
