THEY PLANNED THE TAKEN SINCE THE BEGINNING
>not using your teammates as martyrs for the greater good
Been playing for about a week and a half and I'm sort of lost now. I'm at 294 light, should I be trying to raid? How hard is it to get a group going, and does country matter (connect wise)? It seems like such a hassle to get a raid group together. Do all six members usually have mics?
It's either raiding or quitting though, the PvP in this game is a write-off. There needs to be a game mode that at least removes supers.
294 is easily enough for NM
Just ask at the right time with your name and people will reply
Country doesn't matter to much, just ensure host has a strong connection
Everyone uses mics
As for PvP Trials can be fun, I agree though personally don't like all the one shot craziness coming from supers, shottys, snipers etc
>I'm at 294 light, should I be trying to raid?
>How hard is it to get a group going
Not at all, country doesn't really matter a ton either.
>Do all six members usually have mics?
>should I be trying to raid?
>How hard is it to get a group going, and does country matter (connect wise)?
Not hard at all, and as long as you don't have severe lag or make the whole group lag, you're fine, nobody cares.
>It seems like such a hassle to get a raid group together. Do all six members usually have mics?
Yes, everyone has a mic, it's kind of required unless you're really experienced. It's not too much of a hassle if you post or lurk here, people make LFG posts all the time and take in anyone who's at the right light level, which you are.
HOly shit aussies, I need your help.
What is the best internet provider atm with unlimited ADSL2+?
Reposting: Complete noob here who is trying to get the relics for sleeper simulant, is there a certain way to do it? I've been running strikes on the planets and doing patrols and shit, got nothing
But they didn't. Sakura got c u c k e d. Bad.
Anyone care to rank the subclasses in terms of their effectiveness in PvP and PvE? I'm bouncing around between all three classes and have noticed it takes forever to level a subclass, so some early direction would be swell.
The game kind of gets better the more you play it, and that includes the PvP: gets more tolerable the more you learn how to play it. It's definitely not a game that can be enjoyed if you have nobody to play with. What you have to do is get a friends list going, just add everyone from /dg/ and start posting here.
As for other things you can be doing at 294 light: Nightfall, Trials, and finishing up questlines, especially the exotic ones. Other than that just play what you want to play, and chase the guns and armor that you really want, which is half the fun of the game.
Also I recommend running the old raids for a fun time.
in brissy its $95 a month for 500gb on telstra, same price for unlimited with optus, you have to check on their site if your address is eligible though, if it isnt then tough luck
>Sasuke gets Karin Pregnant
>Pinkshit raises Karin's baby as her own
>Sasuke isnt around for 12 years after her birth because lol im edgy
>queen of c u c ks lives on
You should've seen how /a/ exploded with this shit. It was a great day.
Image for reference
No, she really isn't, people miss the last 4 pages of the final chapter. It's right there.
>No, she really isn't, people miss the last 4 pages of the final chapter. It's right there.
you mean the part where karin is saying that the umbilical cord belonged to sakura? And that she delivered the baby, as in she was like the wet nurse? Those 4 pages?
Xur is a piece of shit. Sell armementarium you asshole!
The Dreadnaught was originally in the vanilla game, there shots of it in a couple of trailers. It was also in the concept art, like what is now the raid jumping puzzle.
Just about every environment and backdrop in the game was ported directly from the concept art.
Wew lad, fuck you xur, now we will have to deal with days of fagstar shitposting whining or bragging about a weapon literally everyone has. Bring special engrams instead, i need that LoW
Bout a month ago crucible was just giving them out like hotcakes, I'm not sure about now, give it a shot, you should be able to get a minimum of 3? Strange coins every second crucible match you complete
It's the Shrine of Oryx you mean.
I have 123 coins and 295 light. I take it I shouldn't buy engrams until I'm over 300 light for the chance at 310? As for the three of coins, it's 20% per coin, and you get 5 for 7 strange coins. Do people usually use all five to stack to 100%? Is it the best use of my coins?
Also, don't Y1 stuff have a max light level well below ~300? I'm going to guess that's wrong, otherwise I don't know why people would shell out 30 odd coins for them.
>As for the three of coins, it's 20% per coin, and you get 5 for 7 strange coins. Do people usually use all five to stack to 100%? Is it the best use of my coins?
Looks like the right way to me.
buy engrams and decrypt them once you're above 300 light for chance at 310, below 300 is a waste of coins, also Y1 stuff decrypts at 170 light capped, can't be used for anything except getting weapons you don't have.
you can stockpile exotic engrams, just wait until you're 300 (310 even better) to decrypt them.
and y1 shit has shit light level. like 170. But people still get them to unlock the y2 versions from the giant ipads.
Pop one before the boss of a strike, there's a hidden cooldown of about 10 minutes between their next use. So if you're grinding out strikes just space them out evenly, the shadows of oryx and other named mission bosses count as well.
who else /can'tsleep/ here? Also any HM KF groups going on that I can join?
>310 Int/Str Skyburners with Inverse Shadow and Better Already
The exotic perk makes it so that orbs can be picked up for health regen even when super is full. So you essentially have medpacks lying around in PvE.
As for playstyle, I think it will be fun to main sword.
So $95 for umlimited optus is over months ago.
Now either $95 for 500gbs telstra or 115 for unlimited Optus ($115 credit back).
I just dont know, moving house sucks.
>tfw i started play normie hours
>i only have 10 strange coins
yaaa the balance in this game is fucked up. the top 10% complain about shit so they nerf or buff it, and now normal people cant buy shit or get any drops because normal people dont have time to grind this shit.
Oh I thought it was 500gb download per second. Of course it's fucking data allowance.
Also, did they up the price of PSN by $5 in Australia or was it always $10?
My new job starts next week and I plan to drop this game so far and hard my memories of it shatter. No love lost, I've had far more than enough.
go with telstra 500gb, the reason im on 200gb is because its an old plan for the same price, think they just upgraded all their plans so i should be getting that soon as well
we'll play plenty of trials the next week dw
What stats are most desirable, and does it change for each class/subsepc? I've been leaning towards disc/str because they int bonus seems minimal, and having more grenades/melee kills will reduce the super cool down anyway. Or does maxing int really make a huge difference?
Do you guys think Bungo will take the way they design the newer strikes and story missions, and apply that to Destiny 2?
Do you think we'll start Destiny 2 with a Samus-esque trip, and lose all our abilities so we can arbitrarily level again?
Do you think the specs will stay the same?
I mean, considering how far Destiny has come from launch day it'd be a fucking travesty if Destiny 2 doesn't launch as good as Destiny should have.
If I was Bungie, I'd put zero effort into making Destiny 2 good on release. I'd make it completely half-assed so all the fanboys would offer to wipe my ass with their tongues one I decide to fix glaring bugs plaguing the game. "Everyone is mad at you for nerfing the shit out of everything but I just wanna say that you're job is hard and DeeJ, you don't have to be nice to the community because we're all ungrateful, entitled assholes am I right guys?! Thanks for thee gold kind stranger. I tp my fedora to you."
It's all going to be the same.
It's all going to be guns that are exactly the same, but different colors.
It's all going to be "Go here, shoot this thing until it goes away"
or "Go here, shoot these things until you got stuff from them".
Depends on the subclass. All titans are Int/disc unless you want to spec for melting point. Hunters both gunslinger and BD are int/disc as well. Nightstalker depends on preference since people think the grenades suck. For warlocks I only know you want disc/str for sunsingers in pvp.
y hunter needs an extoic,
I currently have the marks and blueprints for:
Are any of these great for PvE? Are any of them good?
Get Truth or Red Death, both are great in the crucible and pve, first has the usual stuff (tracking + GaH), the other heals you on kill, and with the update now has 33 bullets per mag, on par with most pve weapons.
>aussie internet so bad they still use data allowance plans
Toppest kek, why not just remove internet from australia entirely so they stop shitting up online games with their bullshit lag, go fuck a spider or something
Ayy lmao just got a 280 thorn from my nigga xur I'm gonna try it out in pvp when it's all leveled up and see if it's better than the hawk moon. If it is, say hello to my new trials primary
Jesus christ, i need to generate 7 orbs with one super 3 times in a strike for a quest, so i thought id do an older strike alone, but theyre all full of fucking level 30s - how to complete this quest/do strikes alone?
Undying mind, lots of adds spawn clustered together, and tons of yellow mobs to get special back quick/kill with super for more orbs.
If you're on the ps 4shizzle, I can help you out on my nightstalker, that bitch shits out so much orbs like it's snowing
break off from group
go back to Steppes
go into basement
kill yellows that come out there
killing two = 8 orbs automatically
rinse and repeat
Hope the other idiots don't die before you get done because that will suck you forward to join them
It's how I've done every single one of those kinds of quests
If you're on PS4 and need someone to sit around and wait while you do this because randoms are fucking it up, hmu. I'm too drunk to accomplish anything meaningful atm
>tfw no loot from normal mode KF
>tfw no loot from hard mode KF
is this normal? run the raid 2 times in different difficulty and only get moldering shards from chests?
well bo3 and halo5 are boring as hell, and fallout 4 is a single player clones of fallout 3. so whatever bro lol. Destiny is the only game that is actually doing something different for once.
Senpaitachi, what roll do I want on Water Star?

3 more for HM KF. From Deathsingers.
I've been working on it the past 2 nights, was hopeful I could get 295 and snag a quick raid tonight but... Getting really tired, already enough deadweight as it is since I dunno the fights either. I'll get there though, I'm still working on it.
Join the party.
Could be done. As long as I can get my Trial finished first.
306 is fine as long as you can stay alive and kill your Knight/Orge/add
Best bet would be now, as long as I get me some caffeine, or Sunday since I work the next 2 nights. Mid day is an option too, but I doubt that could be worked around with the way we used to do it.
I've had great success with the gunsmith Herja-d with Crowd Control and Rodeo so I can only imagine one with Counterbalance would be tip top. Nirwen's is the slowest to kill pulse type so a good roll on literally any other pulse will beat it.
Anyone have an antiquated rune?
Anyone want to use it to kill the boss for a quest?
I have a friend with me and anyone else is welcome, just need a rune to be used.
I'm not sure what the recomended light level is but were both 290+. I also have a Skyburner Beacon if anyone wants to hit that chest while we're at it.
It feels like shotgun runners are more rampart than ever before.
If bungie sucks so bad at balancing that weapon type, they should remove it altogether.
Crucible suffers greatly from monotony
Trials and many other things don't start until 8 hours past rollover, aka once amerifags are theoretically awake
but, everyone's convinced it's not happening this week so take it as you will
Are you fucking kidding me
Gold packages were just "10 matches" and a +300 trials item, I was hyped as hell to get 3 of these every week.
Also fuck you to all the >lmao how new r u when I asked how often trials is, you're wrong bitches.
And? They're not going to start Trials the moment they get to work, and they're not going to start it without monitoring it. Do you not know how they do these things? Do you not read updates?
LEGACY PRIMARY REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
we red death finally boys, maybe a juju too?
mmmmm, i have like 360 coin so i better get one desu, fug im so hype to get my raifu back
omg it was in package no 7
best 217 coins ever
How could that possibly be better?
>oh hey you know that slowest ttk pulse archetype?
>fuck that I want to get two burst and have all of my enemies constantly regenerating health!
hazard yourself faggot
i hate how the pause menu lags to load. it should be instant. and i hate how we have to goto the menu to use synths and switch weapons. theres an entire d-pad they couldve used, and a touch pad they couldve just used for dancing. press left to use green synth, right to use purple synth, up to quickswitch primary, down to quickswitch secondary or heavy weapon.
game wouldve been so interesting being able to quickswitch weapons mid fight
So, I just got to 235 light and I'm kinda lost as to what to do.
I don't feel strong enough to solo the daily story mission, and the few times I've tried the 260 strikes it's been a hellhole. The only way I've gotten geared is from legendary engrams in Vanguard strikes, and even then those are really rare to be for a slot I can upgrade.
Do I just keep going until I get like, 240-250?
wan wan, good choice, ill help you with the daily story if you want. and strikes and shit
8/9 subclass quests in the crucible complete
I'm on smoke grenade kills on my night stalker now, whats the super part like? multikills? kills while tethered? I think ill wait until next mayhem playlist to do it.
>2 hours into oryx and chill and stains give u that look
I'm never doing HM Oryx under 311 again.
Sorry for the bullshit stains
>Currently have 312 Light
>All my Weapons and Armor are 310+

>Xur finally sells Helmet Engrams again
>310 Gravitron Forfiet, 310 Celestial Nighthawk, 310 Helm of Inmost, 310 The Stag, 310 Knucklehead Radar
>bought a stack of 3oc
>used 1 and ran strikes killing yellows until the buff ran out and reapplied
>no engram drop
>buy another stack
>rinse and repeat, still nothing
Is this common? I went through 10 of them and didn't see an exotic engram drop.
>He doesn't like zombies
If it's anything like W@W/Blops1 zombies I won't be playing Destiny for a while, so you lot best pray I enjoy it.
I watched a review and the zombies looked fun and so did the zombie campaign but I wouldn't pay $60 for the game tho.
Pretty sure ATVI have openly said they don't intend on releasing free DLC.
If anything the money will be used on stuff like the festival of the lost.
Dead Island was pretty good.
>Strong fluctuations between red and green connection
I fucking hate my internet provider. With the kind of shitty service they've been dishing out having no net at all would be an upgrade.
Fucking cocksuckers and their backwater hillbilly tech.
They literally can't, the engine they use is so old and and pushed to the limit the game barely scrapes by as it is. Have you seen last-gen screeens? The game looks worse than older last gen CoDs, hell even CoD 2 looked more impressive.
It's the regular campaign but instead the enemies are zombies
>wanting to play .0001 ttk multiplayer games
Something needs to change soon, the last CoD I really played a lot of was MW2 and I still can't put a lot of time into the new ones because it feels like I've already played them.
I never got the fuss about Zombies. It's fun for like 5 minutes and I get bored of it. Great for people who are new to FPS, though. It always went down well with girls for some reason.
Well, it's not like it's the exact same engine. Ithas been 'upgraded' X amount of times, but there's only so much you can do. It's like getting an old car and trying to fit a new engine inside of it. There's only so much you can fit into the frame.
I haven't really enjoyed a CoD since BO2 and MW2 before that. I probably clocked up a grand total of 2 hours on Ghosts and AW. Not going to buy BO3, but I should be getting a copy on either Monday or Tuesday.
The consistency isn't a bad thing. You play CoD and you know what you're getting. It's not like playing Halo 4/5 when you expected it to be like CE/2/3. I loved MW2 because everything was so absurdly overpowered. Later ones tried to tone it down a bit and dial things back. There are subtle differences between games, but it's no different to say Madden or FIFA 'changes'. Only people who play a lot will really notice or care.
1, 2 and 4 were fine on the PC.
>only fucking exotic weapon i really want is red death
>xur isn't selling it this week, AGAIN
>have enough strange coins for 1 y1 primary

THANK YOU BASED GOD

Everything turned out okay. The 2nd match was close though. I haven't been that hyped in awhile
Anyone doing HM KF? I have a Golgoroth checkpoint if anyone wants to do it
I think we've all been there. You either send them a party invite or a friend request. That being said, don't use LFG, you'll regret it. Post your name here and what you want to do.
The more i read the thread, the more i realize i should save my coins till i get past 300. I might not buy anything again for a long time.
Also, do y1 exotics drop in y1 raids n shit still? Im new as of ttk so i have shit for exotics. Only piece i have worth anything is graviton forfeit and i guess the hawkmoon is ok for pvp,
i got a random super good advice with the missed shots gets returend to mag perk, and i sharded it cause im a shitter, and i didnt realize y1 exotics could still be good in pvp
Well it's next up on Bungo's meta change. Then Auto Rifles and Fusion Rifles 3-9 months after that.
It doesn't matter what needs a buff to Bungie, they just lazily change the meta. It's kinda pathetic how bad they are in designing Crucible.
I like how final round snipers were a rare occurrence yet everyone bitched about it and now 1ks is a thing and no one says anything about it even though it's a million times more cancerous. I take getting ohko'd every now and then by someone who can aim at my feet over getting headshotted every match by someone who just shot in my general direction.
Before, you used to get quickscoped like every now and then. Now its like every time a guy jumps out of a corner you get a .0001 second look at the glint and are dead immediately. It's pretty cancerous. There is no fucking way there's this many people good enough to quickscope like that in this game.
Her Benevolence is an archetype for this weapon and it NEVER had this level of AA. I don't care what the number stats say. This gun literally turns shitters into OpTic level snipers.
We posting best sniper rifle in the game?
It really isn't though. I have never been able to shoot someone's foot with a Benevolence and get a headshot. I went through a Trials round shooting the wall behind people near their feet and nailing headshots. I had a HH/Longview Benev and had to at least aim near the head to get shots.
Anyone up for some Crucible before Trials start?
the thing is you had to roll those weapons. Was it difficult? absolutely not, but not everyone knew to do it. 1ks is literally handed to you for just playing that game. Everyone has it. No one had a prudence. Prior to 1ks, the only time I got assblasted by sniper rifles was when someone was using a shadow of veils because that rifle was just as much bullshit as 1ks
Yeah, I've never been much of a xXMLG_BONGHIT_qu1ksc0p3zXx quickscoping type. While I can counter snipe and outdo most people, I didn't do the absurd bullshit you'd see in montages.
With the 1KYS+HH or Efrideet's that I've started using since 2.0, I've done all kinds of bullshit shots that I've never even had practice for. I either have a natural knack for it, or these sniper rifles have absurd aim assist. I'll go with the latter, rather than the former.
I prefer other HCs over that one, but Thorn is fun every now and then. However nowadays people will rub it in your face if they kill you or send hatemail if you kill them. It's just a really dark gun bro.
Theres a video going around implying that when you ads with a sniper, for a split second, your targets hitboxes are increased in size, apparently like take a knee does when you kneel. I dont remember how old it was though, its somewhere on youtube. Cant be too old, i think the guy was using 1kys
Seriously I've gone up against so many assholes teabagging using thorn and felwinters in skirmish. What is up with this? I mean do they need to blow off steam that much that they have to go full year one try hard mode?
How does one go about getting these new meta pulse rifles besides buying them from vendor? Same for snipers
Do I just go about doing heroic strikes / crucible and just cross my fingers something just drops?
One more for fucking up Oryx's daughters then him?
In that case, why don't we also list Destiny Item Manager? I mean even though most people have it, I run into several people playing that still don't know what it is for some reason. I mean I will run Chrome separately just because it's so useful, I wish I wasn't stubborn about using it at first. That and the loadout system with it.
is 300 light enough for HM (not including oryx)? have cleared NM 2 times and then up to sisters on a third run, think I have the mechanics down. assuming ToM and BS would be all I really need.

today was a good day
Idk if anyone has said this before but as a fun fact there is a bug with sleeper simulant. If you switch to it with even one rocket left it will give all seven shots. It seems the normal ammo reduction when switching heavy weapons is broken on sleeper simulant. I believe this also works with about 20-30 machine gun bullets maybe even less. Thought this could be helpful for you all during raids and such
I can do about just as well even in normal Rumble, but Classic has especially new players that aren't 40 yet. Last time I did Classic I won with a Hardlight. Is that AR still considered good because it was really popular when 2.0 hit until everyone started to gravitate towards Pulse Rifles.
Considering it has unlimited range, it's the best AR by a long way.
This has always happened with switching special/heavy. It stops people abusing it, especially with specials like Ice Breaker and Invective.
Really? Oh boy that's gonna be fun :^)
Not precisely true. There's still the exploit with dying and then switching to a different special. And anyway I was replying to myself about sleeper simulant giving more ammo than it should in pve when switching to it from another weapom
Which is why it's going to be so interesting for Trials
>less chokepoints than most maps
>more ways to get around the map
Iunno prolly tonight at midnight I guess. I guess it's time to dust off kekmoon for this shit tier map
