I am seriously kicking myself for not getting back on board the Destiny train earlier than I did. The game after you hit light level 50 just breaks wide open, and there is just so much to do that it really feels like I'll never see it all. Some parts are repetitive but right now I am invested in more exotic quests then I can shake a stick at, having a hell of a fun time with Gambit (Crucible still sucks ass, though), and just enjoying immersing myself in what I've always thought was a great universe to explore.

Anthem being broken was the best thing that could have happened, because it got me interested in giving this game a second chance.

I need to find someone willing to stoop down to my level to do the Leviathan raid, though. We have a group of 3 that play nightly, but we know that's not enough players. With newer raids out there it seems like no one's interested in the old one.

Is the Annual Pass worth it? $35 seems steep but I'm sick of seeing "Requires Annual Pass" by things that look interesting.

Ladies and gentlemen, I don't impress easily but



I've been impressed. I'm about to delete ALL of my other kinetic legendary hand cannons, with maybe the exception of a Duke or two and Midnight Coup of course. I don't think I've used a hand cannon that felt this...right? I think the recoil animation just really works for me.
Yeah, i´ve been reading about this one and sounds really sweet, i really need to start playing Gambit Prime, that recoil direction of 100 with a wooping 92 aim assistance should be amazing with the right perks

You should be able to find some people on the Destiny LFG Discord.

Can't wait to jump back in. I'm almost mad that I'm going to see Captain Marvel this evening while I could be playing D2, even though that's my most anticipated movie of the year and I didn't manage to make time for it until today.

Cammy...I swear this man is not even human. I've watched so many reviews of Liar's Handshake where talented youtubers can barely get it to proc. Meanwhile this dude is rocking a sniper & a Fighting Lion and using them + LH to solo entire squads with melees. How.
I watched that video yesterday and had the same reaction. He's extremely good at Crucible and highly entertaining to watch. Actually I've watched a lot of his stuff and I like how he takes non-standard loadouts and still wrecks with them (Militia's Birthright and Vestian Dynasty, sure!, Spiteful Fang and Anonymous Autumn with Two-Tailed Fox ((on a Warlock)), why not?!

He said in one of his videos (and this has been a while back so these numbers are higher now) but he has over 600 hours on each of his characters on the PC alone with his Titan being his most played by a little bit and most of that is in the Crucible.

Spare Rations is legit. I managed to get one from Drifter with Fluted Barrel, Ricochet Rounds, Field Prep, and Swashbuckler after finishing my first T1 Reckoning last week. It hasn't left my Kinetic slot since and I'm usually not a huge hand cannon guy.

Make sure to do your bounties every day, that helps a lot.

Unfortunately PS3 never got Rise of Iron, plus they made it so you can't port your account forward (I don't think?). Still, it has a good raid if you can find people!
I mostly got it to play through the story (yea, I know it's not the greatest) to get caught up and then play Destiny 2 on PC (I don't have current gen consoles).

Oh, cool. Join the Discord. I'll run Levi with you; and maybe we can run Levi Prestige too? (I need the catalyst that drops 😸).

I finally got my Phoenix fucking Protocol this morning at 2 am, in Shattered Throne. Jesus Christ... FINALLY. Now I just need Arbalest and the new Hunter arms and my exotic collection is complete.

Also, 691, without any serious grinding or min/maxing and 685 on my alts. All thanks to stupidly good RNG. I'm ready for Tier 3 Reckoning. I don't imagine it being hard at all.

Is Arbalest even available yet? Haven’t heard if it drops anywhere.

Last night I started my void kill Thorn quest in comp, which means I had to take Jotunn off my arm.
It was a sad, sad night :(

Ikelos HC is doing work though, if only I could play with less potatoes.
How do you have a luna and not know how to play control?

I'm down for whatever up through Power Level 600, which I hit last night on my warlock. My fiance is a 400 Titan, and I have a guy from back home with a 670 Titan. None of us have run any of the raids since Vault of Glass!

This is exactly what happened to me. I skipped vanilla and went straight to Forsaken, which I loved. Me and my friend made it to the Dreaming City but he quit and I didn't want to play alone so I did as well. Now, I am back with 4 of my friends this time and we all can really see just how good this game is. The Annual Pass is worth it for sure, it adds even more layers to the level 50 explosion of activities.

We are actually trying to find people for a blind run of a raid this weekend :D

Add me on PSN - Fibblesteaks is the username! We usually play after 8PM Eastern time once the kids are in bed, but sometimes pop on in the day on weekends too depending on what we have going on.

If you are on PC I can help you guys do Levi for the first time. Plenty of people willing to help.

Kinda me ATM, with Anthem bring broken beyond repair (my opinion). I picked up the session pass and am having a ton of fun, was away from Destiny for a while.

These exotic quest steps forcing me into crucible have to go...

Very nice. So far Trust is the only other non-exotic handcannon that has felt as good to use as a well-rolled Spare Rations. Plus its even got the same break reload animation, which is always points in its favor, aesthetically.

Uhh just watched Teawrex on Twitch do tier 3 and it’s the same exact thing as T2?

Edit: he did it again and it’s different
I’m guessing it’s a chance between Swords encounter and Oryx encounter

Had a crazy good night for loot last night, got a good roll on my Hammerhead and even got Le Monarque as well. Leveling up both my Hunter and Warlock in tandem. Wanna try to get through a raid sometime this weekend.

I went through enough matches (mostly solo) to reset and I believe I only got 2 or 3 weapon drops from matches that weren't related to rank tiers. Curated drops seem very rare.
Oh dude the other week you mentioned using riskrunner with verity in gambit, oh my god it is insanity. Motes raining for days.

Fun as hell.

Don't forget to go back to the Drifter after you complete the Invitation of the IX stuff. He has some new dialog.

It's very, very interesting how he reacts.

I quite like Duke for pve, hits like a truck.
Yeah, if you get a Duke Mk.44 with Rampage and Outlaw or Drop Mag, keep it. One of these years when I have enough cores to burn I want to MW mine. Not only does it hit like a truck it also has insane range for a HC.

Are the supposed Gambit match solo making fixes in the game yet? I just got into a game against a 4 stack, clearly wearing decked out Gambit Prime armour. Really wish unlocking tiers of Reckoning wasn't tied to playing Gambit Prime.

Yeah, best drop I've got with it so far has outlaw and moving target (I think?). They're dropping fairly frequently though, so it's only a matter of time until I get a rampage/outlaw drop and I will definitely be mw'ing it.

If you like Duke, make a run at Warden's Law when Warden of Nothing is up on nightfalls. Once I got a good rampage roll on that I put all my Dukes away, it's the same archetype but with better hit registration. Feels badass too.

Nice, I'll definitely be on the lookout for that. Hopefully warden is up again soon, thanks for the info man.
