Here's a rough breakdown that I put together for you:

COMING ON DEC 5:
*New Armor ornaments from various activities (Vanguard, Crucible, Trials, Iron Banner, Dead Orbit, FWC, New Monarchy, Eater of Worlds armor)
*Rare gear mods break down into gunsmith materials, and have a chance to give mod components
*Daily rotating selection of legendary mods available directly for legendary shards + mod components
*Legendary engrams for sale from the Cryptarch for legendary shards

COMING ON DEC 12:
*Faction armor and weapons buyable directly with tokens and shards, based on number of engrams claimed
*Fated Engrams from Xur, decrypts into an exotic you don't already have
*Three of Coins knockoff from Xur that boosts exotic drop rate for 4 hours
*Masterwork weapons, which are souped up legendaries with a rerollable perk that also causes multi-kills to spawn orbs and have a kill tracker (masterworks can be broken down to get materials to turn existing legendaries into masterworks)
*Gift consumables from Zavala and Shaxx that grant bonuses to everyone present in a strike or crucible match

COMING AFTER THAT:
*Better rewards for Prestige activities (target date: January 2018)
*Heroic Strikes playlist (target date: late December? wasn't mentioned for Dec 5 or 12 but specifically stated as "in December")
*Better emote interface (target date: early 2018)
*Private Crucible Matches and Ranked PVP (target date: early 2018)
*More Gusmith improvements (target date: early 2018)
*Dupe protection for Exotic Engrams (target date: early 2018)

Kyrosiris, youíre awesome. Putting this in the front.

Does anyone know the deal with this except for speculation yet?

Hopefully at the very least, will it track how many turn in's you've done on an account or character already? (My meager turn ins have ended up very lopsided as it is, given the incentive to turn in with your highest power level dude when not praying for armor).

Or will it be starting from zero, further delaying the goal to finish off that set you've been chasing since launch without spending 400+ more tokens on random rolls first, per character.

in d1, I want to say it was like...level four before you could buy all the items.

keep in mind in d1 it was like 12 rep for a strike and you needed 250 rep for ranks three and up. the best way to grind vanguard rep was actually patrol missions because in d1 they gave vanguard rep. vanilla d1 was pretty hosed up.

How can you have a yellow alert in Spacedock?


Anyone else running into issues lately when playing with more than one person in the same LAN at the same time? I played pretty much exclusively with my partner, and very often one of our characters (from the perspective of the other) will just lag out for about 10 seconds and run in a straight line in a random direction.

We're on a Moderate NAT according to the Accessibility options, but aside from that I got nothin. Network diagnostics all show completely fine.

My blind raid team killed Callus about 5 minutes before Bungo kicked us to orbit to tell us about the upcoming patch. Felt good and boy were we lucky that didn't happen in the middle since it was literally our last run of the night before quitting.

I won't write an essay about it this time because I'm sure nobody gives a poo poo. Plus it wasn't that interesting once we figured out dogs. Calus took maybe 45 minutes to figure out solidly other than the very very very end... which killed us the first time we got to it.

Yeah, I thought the raid did a pretty good job teaching you the mechanics you need to know and brought them together nicely for Calus. It's a shame that apparently the vast majority of players never do the raids since they're probably the best content in the game. As for the masterworks, I don't think they'll actually add power level. Rather, I think that was just saying it adds 10 points of [stat]. You don't see the numerical values in game, but every gun has a numerical value assigned to its stats that you can see in inventory managers.

The 10 on Masterworks is the stat it rolls. They roll +10 to one of the gun stats, they drop orbs on multikills and they track kills in PvE, PvP or both. That's all they do.

Gotcha. That's real dumb you see a number that's just meaningless...

And yeah, even though the only other raid I've ever played, in any game, ever, was being sherpa'd through the Vault of Glass, I felt like it was an amazing experience. Figuring it out and doing it on your own is like ten times more exciting... and leading that group is 20 times more exciting. I'll admit I was shaking when we won. (But I was also shaking when we lost at the very end.)

Hope the lairs aren't poo poo!

Yeah, all new armor, guns, ships and sparrows, it doesn't look like any gear or areas are actually being copy-pasted here which was a legitimate fear for a lot of people, myself included.

Think of CoO as the equivalent of Dark Below for D2, the new raid is unique and made from the ground up but will be smaller in scope compared to Leviathan, bit like how Crota's End was quite small compared to Vault of Glass. Calling them raid lairs seems like an example of Bungie setting expectations.

Nah, they said they're going to retune it so that it's still concurrent endgame content alongside the new lair. I believe that the numbers they gave were 300 power for Calus (so max damage done/min damage taken at 320 light) whereas he's currently around 275 (I believe the number people mentioned for it at the moment is 293 for max damage done/min damage taken?) so you'll still be able to get around 15-20 levels higher than it maxes out at just like now.

My understanding is that it's supposed to give the hardcore WORLD FIRST raiders a fair amount of time to get to higher power levels before the raid lair is unleashed and people compete for a finish
