The secret of enjoying destiny is knowing when to stop playing it for a while until they make it better again (right now it is bad)

i support this government and/or service

left to their own devices bungie's broke brained design philosophy inevitably makes the game worse and worse until community backlash gets so loud that they have to change course until things are good again and the backlash dies down, at which point their terrible instincts begin to take over and the cycle begins again

it's the circle of life and it rules us all

it's frustrating to see them making the same mistakes over and over again but it's been happening for so long now i've just accepted it

I've come back to d2 after a long, long, hiatus. I wanna get my hands on a bad juju, but need to do these calus tributes first. I see you have to do/redo triumphs while using certain weapons/armour. What's the easiest way to obtain these, for a solo player who never raids?
Matchmake a round or two of the menagerie to get a weapon/armour piece? Or does it require a full armour set, so keep grinding the menagerie until I get a full set?

I've got Bad Juju and the Catalyst (at 39%). It's a depressingly mediocre gun for the unholy amount of work.

Get a set of opulent bullshit armor from the menagerie and wear it until enough triumphs get finished. I still question going through the motions for Bad Juju.

Exactly what this game needs is another shotgun. 6 years of fuckers mindlessly running at you with their instagib i win button.

I'll be doing as many towers as i have previously, which is zero.

I just got the Bad Juju, this is the approach I took.

1. Do the Calus bounties that are either easy or safe. Easy ones are like killing 20 enemies in the Menagerie or Forge, and safe ones are ones you can complete on patrol, like 25 precise kills or 50 scorn kills.

2. Get Power and Efficiency 1+2 for your chalice first, so you occasionally get imperials from playlists and you can unlock the chests in Nessus for runes and imperials

3. Work your way to rune compatibility 3, so you can get the blue runes for the Calus armor.

Then wear the Calus weapons and armor to get the triumph trophies, and turn in enough boons of opulence to make the trophies affordable. Itís not hard, just a grind.

It's community completion, not individual completion.

After realizing they completely screwed up the math again, they're going to start adjusting the rate at which progress is gained by 5x, with 10x on weekends.

Also dropping the light level of the champions, which is pointless because the champions aren't even remotely the challenging part of the event; it's the boss enemies that just casually force their way into the tower zones right when the tower is about to blow that are the issue, tethers and explosive weapons be damned. If you get to the champions everyone just whips out their swords and they die in seconds.

In typical Bungie fashion, when they said "champions", they meant all yellow bars. It's a lot easier now.

Bungieís been doing some very dumb things lately, but the core gameplay is still pretty fun. Iíd say proceed with caution, and donít spend anything right now. Try it out for a few more weeks, then make a decision.

Good Hunter, what... what is this post?


while this years seasons have been very lack lustre, especially the current one, this is mostly for veteran players who need more content/have burnt out/etc

the core gameplay is good, and new players would be looking at all the accumulated content from year 1 and 2, which is a LOT and most of it is pretty good + shadowkeep and whatever seasonal stuff they might get

so yeah a new player would probably get a better time out of it than a veteran right now. still though, new players should stick to the f2p stuff until you have played enough to be sure you like it and want to commit + have hit the point where you really want to access stuff behind the pay wall

Destiny has seriously fun core gameplay with a loving boatload of fun weapons to accumulate.

Once you get to the end game leveling, it becomes a slog. It's still fun enough for me to mindlessly play for an hour or so during my nightly game time. But this season has been incredibly poo poo.

Who the gently caress thought, "The seasonal armor should make your character look like a fat 1980's Russian soldier" but stupider?

Also, tying the season triumphs to a grandmaster nightfalls/trial achievements...I just don't get it.

As a new player since the quarantine the game is real fun and, having been more or less poopsocking because my industry no longer exists and I'm trying to fight off The Terror, I'm now two months in and starting to bump up against "oh jesus, what. why? why would you do this?" on a regular basis. This has mostly recently come through iron banner, where the team that wins is the one that has fewer people on it trying to grind out bow kills.
