Cluck you say?

Buglord

Sorry, what I mean is, shrieker takes enough damage to shield itself and pop over to the platform, thralls start spawning apparently continuously, one of my team grabs the ball, wizards spawn, then wipe. I think we were just all overtaken by some kind of idiot tunnelvision and forgot you can in fact put the stupid ball down to go back to killing things.

Anyone know if more of the wizards spawn if the ball times out and you need to grab it again?

For the Thorn strike the thralls continuously spawn throughout the fight and can kill a full health player in 2 melee attacks. The successful runs I have done have had someone staying near the entrance and blasting the thralls as soon as they spawn. Getting hit by a seeker from the boss, running to cover, and then getting one shot by a thrall you didnít know was there is the worst.

Bottom tree? Titan is great for trash mobs like that. Punch one thrall, stand in glorious sunspot. All the thrall will pile on you bursting into even more sunspots while you make more sunspots shooting everything else. Pheonix cradle legs will let your teammates share the glory of said sunspots.

I dunno, having a panic invisibility/reload button when you need one is great, especially if you have max mobility and optionally Sixth Coyote.

Is the delay of the next season really to make sure everything works well, or is Bungie trying to keep players in Destiny and not defect to Cyberpunk 2077 by moving their release date to the week prior?

At release nothing but after release they plan to add one. It will probably something limited, but people are already expecting GTA Online from it, and is just wishfull thinking.

I just finished collecting all the calcified fragments and realized I've missed four. I've checked every spawn point on the four worlds and don't see any emblems for the fragments.

I'm going to have to go spot by spot with YouTube, aren't I? Heaven forbid they just mark all the spots with an X on the main map.

Which one of these scan quests gets the coolest emblem?

It's a shame that I'm so locked into the Future War Cult emblems, because those are the best. Outside of the emblems you buy, because of course those are the coolest.

Thanks to that interactive map, I've realized there are Lost Sectors I've missed. Mostly because I've barely spent any time in the Dreaming City.

That new Exotic is actually pretty drat fun. I was wondering where those drat purple balls kept coming from.

Is anyone from Bone Krew filling in as a sherpa for raids? I still haven't finished the original Leviathan, let alone any others. For years I've tried a dozen or so times to finish it and every single time people just flat out leave at the last boss. Pretty lovely to say the least which is why I've never even bothered attempting any of the others. I'd like to finally get some of the unique items before they disappear.

The vast ocean of difference between the silver cosmetics and the regular cosmetics is asinine. Especially considering the amount of work that can go into unlocking poo poo in Destiny. I can't think of a game since World of Warcraft that had such time sink grinds.

Unlocking that super special "Do two to three hours of work a day" Guardian Games emblem was so anticlimactic. Because it's so white you cannot make out anything. It just looks like a blank notepad document as an emblem.

We have made deliberate choices related to cosmetic items and not having them come from gameplay. Gameplay rewards are where you get items, power, mods, perk combinations, stats, triumphs, and titles. The aesthetics for armor blurs the line some Ė we want players to get cool armor from activities and the world that feel thematic to where they were acquired. Cosmetic items like universal ornaments, weapon ornaments, shaders, ships, sparrows, emotes, and finishers typically come from the store (There are exceptions, but generally speaking, that's how we think about this).

We are continuing to try and separate capability/gameplay from vanity. Armor 2.0 and Universal Ornaments are big parts of this separation.

Theyíve relaxed that stance a bit, but itís still pretty obscene lol.

After finishing the engram focusing thing and having no remaining quests, I'm bouncing off this season pretty hard. I don't think it's really the season's fault, especially compared to last season. But going through weekly errands to get a piece of Eris lore isn't really enthralling to me.

Ikelos v2, with Seraph Rounds, Subsistence or DSR (if you worry about Subs. reducing your reserves), and some combination of Demolitionist, Disruption Break, or Surrounded to taste. It makes warmind cells, and will be one of the 2 last primaries capable of doing so to rotate out.

I'm not minding the season having some lulls to let me actually play other games. There's also Moments of Triumph stuff to do if you want.
