So I just spent a month getting my Light level to 610, plus a dozen triea to finish the first forge and get that machine gun frame finished.

Went back to Ada, and got absolutely nothing? Is this supposed to happen? I thought the frames gave you a weapon from its type...

Indeed. Hence why I said I think I'm getting burned out by it. I know it won't change, so it's hard for me to stay motivated.

I think I enjoyed just being in peoples company back then since I used to have a dedicated group that I had known for years, so thats what got me through. I know thats not Bungies fault but it is what it is.
Oh, definitely. I essentially have no reason to play the game at the moment save for whenever Shattered Throne week comes up. And even then, it's difficult to muster up the desire to play because it's tiresome to not get anything from it.

And of my clan is gone as well, only a few came back for Forsaken. We used to run Leviathan every week despite there being no reason for it.

As weird as it might sound, Destiny has only ever been a solo game for me.

Only when needing to do raids or NF have I ever called upon Discord.

I have a close group of friends who play games, and most had D1, but the constant need to invest in DLCs that splintered us if one of us didn't have it the latest drop killed their interests.

I enjoy my time with Destiny, its my go-to game for podcasts and classic shows I like to re-watch

The gun should drop from the forge when you finish the frame

I honestly don't know where else to ask, and I know quite a few have SSD for destiny here, so I was wondering a question.

Anyone use a internal ssd for destiny, say like 500gb and still able to use external hard drive for other shit that few extra seconds won't matter?

I have a 5tb external already, and was looking at Samsung 860 Evo 500 gb, which would be perfect I think for destiny/ division 2 maybe.

And would I need to get enclosure one? It's couple extra bucks. Or just use the one that's in my ps4 pro currently.

Not sure what you are asking. Is an external SSD worth it? Absolutely. I bought these for my Xbox One - and I only use it for Destiny (so far)

SSD: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07864WMK8/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00__o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Enclosure: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01N5RLG2C/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00__o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Today was The Last Word day. I got pretty lucky with the Hive Witches Rituals in that I caught 3 in a row on Titan and in between them I just ran that Lost Sector right next to it over and over. The 15 Wanted kills + 3 Rituals probably took me a around 2 hours to finish so it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. The last mission was made easier by reading the advice given here which was "shoot his hand/gun and shoot in the order they appear". Doing that I was able to clear it in one go, so thanks for that!

How's the annual pass content? It's £10 off at the moment, worth it?
Hard to say at the moment as we’ve only experienced one out of three of the content drops. So far, the first one is meh. No doubt, the rest won’t differ too much in quality.

If you really wanna keep playing Destiny past Forsaken but don’t want to wait until September again to do it (I imagine that’s when the next big announced content will be, as usual), get it.

This stuff is good enough to keep the community occupied until the next big expansion, but that’s about it. It’s just an excuse to keep playing the game we already enjoy.

Thanks, I think I'll hold off until I run through forsaken so I have a better idea of the end game. Currently just going through warmind.
It's on sale for another week anyway.

So I just finished Curse of Osiris. I liked it for the most part. A bit repetitive but at least the Infinite Forest would be changed up from time to time and I think that's a really nice looking area. Found the voice work to be really nice. I've always liked how Destiny 2's missions play out. The gunplay, feeling of empowerment, and the music makes it all work and it's the same here. It was actually longer then I expected given opinions of it I've seen. That said they had to be crazy charging $20 for this originally. As fun as it was that is in no way a fair price. Yes it's a new area that's a third of the original asking price for the game and not all of the missions take place there!

I feel it being apart of the Forsaken purchase (which is how I got and even that was on sale for me) now is far more fair and I would imagine that might be the general feeling at this point. It and Warmind together for $20 is likely fair as well.

I remember there being a problem when this came out but since I wasn't playing and didn't have the game I didn't really pay attention. I get it now though. I think I would have been really pissed.

Finally got Threat Level with TB, but also with Rifled barrel, Appended/Extended mag and Range MW. I think I like this better than the curated one.

I wish I'd stop getting Edge Transit over and over and over and over and over and over for all my daily and weekly drops. I thought they fucking fixed this bullshit.

Internal means you'll have to format the ps4, and install the software from safe mode via a usb drive. Then re-download all your saved games, themes etc and set up PSN account(S).

But yes, you can install an internal ssd for better system performance and games like Destiny while using an external hdd for other games. You don't need an enclosure for an internal drive, it will replace the existing 500gb/1tb drive you have in the ps4.

That's a pretty awesome Triumph score. I checked mine this weekend and I am like 25k or something, haha.

On another note, that special version of the Corrupted Strike for Malfeasance is kind of ridiculous. I thought it would be similar in difficulty to the one you have to run to unlock Izanami but no, it is much worse. I gave up on trying to solo it out of pure aggravation so will likely be hitting up the ERA Discord soon for a partner or two.

I got a Hunter who is stuck on that mission. You on PS4?

I'm down to do it, and am on the Discord. I should be free for a few hours in about an hour if that aligns.

I'm scraping the barrel on triumphs, and still waiting for my Phoenix Protocol to drop for a quick 150 bomb

Crazy, but have to respect the grind. Nice achievement bud. Hope you get the Phoenix, been waiting for it, one eyed mask or the shards for ages.

I'm on PC and I appreciate the support, folks. Won't be back online until tonight and will hit up the LFG in our ERA Discord.

How many wins does it take to finish the final Infamy rank in Gambit? I got it last night but since only wins give you XP I don’t think I’ll have enough time to finish before the season is over.

Bungie will definitely have 2x/3x Infamy week/weekend before the season comes to a close.

Luna and NF need to be removed from the game, they are killing comp and qp.

Those guns have done more harm than good.

For anyone else on the PC, do you aim down the sights with Last Word or just hip fire it and call it a day? Seems like the hip fire bonuses aren't really worth the loss of being able to spot a bullet for precision damage.

At least on the PC they seem to have taken a sharp nosedive since Last Word dropped. And in any case, they are easily outranged with a good pulse or scout or sniper. Blast Furnace / Go Figure have a .8ttk vs .67 for LH/NF (optimal) so it isn't even that much of a disadvantage. It's no fun being two tapped by one of those HC's but with Blast Furnace and some strategic maneuvering I am finding I can win against them at least as often as I lose.

Fuck Icebreaker. Bring back the Zhalo Supercell.
Yeah, Icebreaker does not need to come back. Whisper does essentially the same thing but at least requires a modicum of skill to attain and to proc the perk. Zhalo was extremely fun but doesn't Riskrunner do the same thing + a little more? If it came back I'm thinking it might need some kind of new gimmick to make it not be redundant.

I agree, I got one shotted by an LH yesterday, and I have no clue how that was even possible/ and I just shut down my PS4 immediately

fuck that gun.

HC metas are always the worst in Destiny.

Yeah, Riskrunner took Zhalo's spot.

Gimme Monte Carlo. Who didn't dig that thing?

I also want them to bring back Super Good Advice, but actually follow through on the thing where it's supposed to have a personality.
