Praxic Fire doesn’t show up all that often, and it’s my favorite Warlock piece, and even with a bad roll, Ruin Wings are usually my armor choice on Titan. So he’s offering my favorite armor for two of the three classes, and that sucks balls??? I think if you look at the offerings objectively for a person who hasn’t played this game obsessively for eight months, it’s actually a pretty good offering this week. It’s more the fact that the only thing with a decent roll is the Praxic Fire. Yes, all of the armor items are decent, but it’s like, screw you, here’s a terrible roll!

Then we might talk about The Taken King. My good friend told me about Destiny and I got an invite to the Beta and was pleasantly surprised. I hated CoD and this was refreshing because, well, outer space. I purchased the digital download version and off I was, playing Destiny. Once I garnered the support of a few friends, we were off to The Vault of Glass.

Destiny VoG Beginner’s Quick Guide by armbarawareness There are some amazing guides and videos out there for VoG. I was pretty worried on my first attempt and didn’t want to be the one to wipe the group, so I read up a lot about all of the fights.

Mars – Zone is approximately the size of Titan, set on the polar ice caps Hellas Basin in and around a Warmind bunker, the main enemy is the Hive. Escalation Protocol – Wave based, end game public event that you can start at whim. Consists of 7 waves of Hive with a boss every so often. The wave 7 Chest contains unique weapons and armour to the event, the weapons are premium weapons with new perks that are specific and unique to these weapons.

Word from the summit group is that even with your normal fireteam you will have to really work to make wave 7. Examples include graviton lance now having a huge explosion aoe with tracking shards similar to a slova bomb, and Skyburners now having explosive rounds, with high damage ADS mode and moderately tracking rounds in hip fire. Masterwork exotics are bespoke, essentially you have to complete a certain activity to gain the specific masterwork upgrade for the weapon there are hints on these activities on the weapon There are two steps to the process, After acquiring the item to get to masterwork the exotic will generate orbs as per legendary MW’s and have two random stat buffs that can be rerolled as normal.

Completing the first step will unlock a bounty on the weapon that upgrades it to its final form when complete. Examples of the final form are Vigilance Wing becoming full auto and Crimson gaining range stat.

Destiny: Matchmaking für Raids weiterhin im Gespräch

West Yorks Jano said: When I hadn’t done the raid it was “it’s too difficult to do with a pug”. Now I have done the raid, and many others have, with pugs, your saying “well you didn’t do it with a proper pug”? Look at all the posts raging above about people who join strikes in match making then proceed to not do anything at all and expect to be carried around the strike while they sit in a corner and watch. This doesn’t happen with pick up groups because you have to meet the people, be on voice comms with them.

You get to know the people in your pickup group, possibly even play with them again.

May 29,  · Destiny 2 “There will be a ton of loot!” They were how I got VoG and hard mode VoG done. basically was a “Hey, we are doing this raid and could use a 4th/5th/6th dude, wanna come?” (bar the first tier which I think is the only one with matchmaking). But yeah, my regular destiny friends left so I got stuck doing solo content:O.

This particular storm was brought about by a specific thing that happened last week. But, in truth, it’s been brewing for much longer. We saw and played a bit of the expansion while we were at at the convention; it looks pretty good. Various controversies notwithstanding, we’ll have more coverage of what we saw this week. The pricing model for The Taken King is a bit funky.

Bungie is talking a big game about how much new stuff will be in Taken King, so it’s possible — or even likely — that it will justify that price tag. New players will be able to buy a “complete” version of Destiny that includes everything that came out this year — Bungie has begun calling this “all year one content. Once again, seems more or less fair. It’s less than what we paid when we bought that stuff new, but hey, it was new when we bought it.

In September, it will be old. Along with a special metal case and some bonus art printouts, the Collector’s Edition comes with some exclusive digital stuff. There are a few guns that probably aren’t that good, along with “three Exotic Guardian Class items featuring XP bonuses, three class-specific emotes, and three armour shaders to customise every Guardian class.

They’re purely cosmetic, and have no real effect on gameplay. At the moment, the game restricts every player to the same four emotes, which vary from character to character based on class and race.

Division and Destiny gamers: Early in last month, I was playing both of Division and Destiny, but with the update of the two games, I prefer to play Division now. Here is five things Destiny can learn from The Division, just in my own opinion. Weapon Skins I’m going to draw the line at weapon attachments for guns, as while that works in The Division, I don’t think it would go as well in Destiny, and it would clutter up an already cluttered loot table.

Last week, I wrote the mirror image of this post, where I was extracting lessons from the longer-running Destiny that could be used in The Division, its newest competitor.

Gameplay[ edit ] Destiny gameplay Destiny’s style has been described as a first-person shooter that incorporates role-playing and MMO elements, but Bungie has avoided describing Destiny as a traditional MMO game. For instance, rather than players being able to communicate with all other players in the game or on a particular server — as is the case in many conventional MMO games — Destiny includes on-the-fly matchmaking that allows players to communicate only with other players with whom they are “matched” by the game.

To communicate with other players in the game world, players must use their respective console’s messaging system. A social space on Mercury was added with the House of Wolves expansion, but requires players to go undefeated in the Trials of Osiris Crucible mode in order to access it. Character progression and classes[ edit ] Players are able to improve their characters, referred to as Guardians, by gaining experience points EXP — when a set number of experience points are accumulated, the player’s character will “level up” and gain improved statistics which further enhance performance in battle.

Quests , including the “main scenario” quest line, are specific tasks given to the player by non-player characters which reward items and EXP. Completing main scenario quests progresses the overarching plot of the game. Destiny features three character classes.

Yet lone wolf players still find it a struggle to access much of the high level content, simply because very little of it can be played alone, and the game purposely limits matchmaking options. Bungie seems firm on this point, and with only a few weeks until the launch of The Taken King , there has been no announcement to the contrary. Of all the Destiny debates to persist through Year 1, none is as polarizing as issues of matchmaking.

Both sides make strong arguments of support either way. Opposition is usually framed by the fact that some content, notably Temple of Osiris and raids , would be brutally difficult to play in squads with no communication. Support for more matchmaking options counters with a simple question: Lone wolf players still find it a struggle to access much of the high level content, simply because very little of it can be played alone.

While LFG sites offer options for those who are feeling lonely, they certainly do not represent a panacea solution without problems. As a gamer, I play a lot. Until the emergence of Destiny a year ago, the word casual seldom had negative connotations in gaming circles. Imagine being scolded for this in a public forum…the gaming equivalent of being dressed down for not studying for a test. Currently three weeks prior to the release of The Taken King you cannot find matchmaking in: Having sampled raids, I can give them a pass on this.

They are not just difficult, but complex, requiring virtually everyone to be on a mic, or at least be listening to the team.

Destiny, v10: Are we ready for some new content yet?

Despite the fact that hardcore players are hitting a wall , at least partly due to Bungie’s insistence upon forcing everyone to play how Bungie wants them to play, Bungie is again enacting changes that will force everyone to play how Bungie wants them to play. No more soloing or running the weekly heroic with a single other friend — you’ll now be stuck in a team of three based on Destiny’s matchmaking algorithms, like you are whenever you try to run a regular-level strike.

Says Bungie on their blog which you can read in full here: As part of 1. Let’s ask Design Lead M.

Jul 10,  · Random loot and matchmaking is all there can be for me right now to rationalize playing this game any longer. At least as of now. I like how Destiny plays, but if these are their plans for.

In addition, our raid leader would explain the fight for 10 minutes before the entrance, templar and Aetheon fights. The problem was that it was just information overload. The fights are fairly complex, so going over every detail without context is a recipe for forgetting. I ran this with a pug last night that was fairly experienced, and no one worried about positioning or anything. Everyone knew what to do, saw the holes and filled them and we cleared it in an hour with no wipes.

The Praetorians are the toughest, so use a void fusion rifle and call your partner for help if you see one. Templar Phase 1 Stuff comes out left middle and right. Same as entrance, kill stuff. Get on it to cleanse yourself and GTFO since vex spawn there.

It sure seems like your first PoE chest opening gives you an exotic. I think everyone who’s opened one has gotten an exotic that first time. My other 3 last night only yielded legendaries – even on level Also, so far it seems like the new exotics have only dropped from Nightfall.
