Let me tell you from fresh experience, itís super cool and rewarding to get an 1100-capped Wardenís Law from the 1300 NF rather than, yknow, anything good or useful

I agree it's dumb, but on the plus side, the chance of getting a Warden's Law is completely independent of all other loot drops. It doesn't replace anything at all; it's just some free materials for deleting

Instead of getting N Loot, you get N Loot + a Warden's law

Every gun that is dropped, every eververse ship launched, every ghost shell released signifies, in the final sense, a theft from guardians who hunger and are not fed, guardians who are cold and are not clothed.

Yeah power progression and ghost mod expiration and whatnot are going to be a bit unclear and awkward until the next few seasons drop

I actually finished the weekly challenge for Survival matches. I was very surprised that it wasnt 100% felwinters and steady hands. A lot of variety and good matches. Got rolled once or twice by a pack of hunters but overall had fun for the first time in PvP.

Random teammates stuck together instead of running off in completely different directions solo helped a great deal.

Apes together strong!

Jesus Suffering Fuck how can running for 3 minutes BE SO HARD.

This Sepicks Prime Nightfall is really good fun. Even with two complete strangers had no problem murderising it for the 100k pinnacle because of the sheer mob density. It's like a strike mixed with a battleground.

I'm having no luck with lfg for Xbox raiding tho in UK hours. Is there a noticeable difference for pve with latency etc if you go play with people across the Atlantic? Anyone Americans played with Euro goons and found it ok? I don't want to rock up to something needing a Sherpa and then have a dogshit connection and cause other people problems.

I play a bunch in the morning here in the USA because I have a night job. Most of my lfg groups are British dudes/ladies and I donít have an issue.

Just started playing again for the first time since Year 1. Is there any way for me to decrypt these Umbral Engrams coming in now? The internet suggests the device to decrypt them could only be acquired prior to Beyond Light, is that correct and I'm SOL with these things?

Might this reddit comment thread contain your answer? Now that I think about it I do remember the season/battlegrounds quest/hammer being real stupid and unintuitive to start.

edit- but if you're "a few hours" into it I'd have to imagine you've already done this? game broken, no surprises here

Transmog:

-Gather the first currency. Spend it on bounties. Do them to earn the second currency. Convert the second currency into the third currency. Spend the third currency on a transmog. This will add a universal ornament that looks like that armor piece to your collection. I have no idea why this is so complicated. you can also buy the third currency with silver

-10 transmogs per class per season, with 10 bonus transmogs per class in season 14 because it's the first time

-Year 1 non-universal ornaments won't work but may work in the future

-The armor customizer is changing so you can browse your entire shader collection without having to pre-buy them, finally

-There is an apply shader to all armor button, finally

I expected this to be a grind filled play to sell more silver and I'm still amazed at just how bad that all is.

400 dust for a shader.

And they even managed to trot out that dumb line about players needing to see exotics to know what to expect from opponents to justify not allowing transmog ornaments to apply to exotics.

When unlocking these armor appearances into Universal Ornaments, are you unlocking an entire armor set per Synthweave, or individual armor pieces? Because if the latter, with 100s of items, it would take years to unlock every piece at a rate of 10 per 3-month season.

quote:

In total, during Season of [REDACTED] players may earn up to 20 Synthweave per class, which can either be used to convert four full sets to ornaments, or 20 specific items.

Kill [???] enemies to earn 150 strand
Spend 150 strand on 1 bounty
Complete 1 bounty to earn 1(?) cord
Spend 1(?) cord to buy 1 weave
Spend 1 weave to convert 1 armor piece from collections to an ornament

Making every armor ever released an ornament is impossible under this system, they introduce new armor faster than you'd catch up
