If Minaj is still a thing, does that mean I can still keep working on tributes for the bad juju catalyst, or am I screwed until it enters the general loot table?

Everything from the first two years of the game and from Shadowkeep are permanent to the game (barring some bizarre future occurrence that doesn't really need to be considered atm). Only the seasonal stuff will be impermanent and even then the loot from those modes will eventually return, while the modes themselves will not. You have the rest of Destiny 2's lifespan to earn anything you missed from Y1 and Y2.

My broad, wholly unsupported assumption is that each year's expansion content will also be permanent, since it's where they'll add a new patrol space and long-term grind while seasons (again barring another radical content delivery change) will continue to be ephemeral.

I might stick to new raids because I missed the other 2 from forsaken and I'm too dumb to learn them while loving it up for the veterans

I heard one is pretty chill tho

They are all pretty chill nowadays. I'd be happy to run them with you. I often sherpa people through raids they've never done before.

Hell, I once sherpa'd someone who had never raided before ever through Last Wish while our group was doing all void hunters for the Rivensbane title. We only wiped once despite raiding with a complete newbie and doing an incredibly suboptimal loadout haha.

It's going to be way longer than that on PC. I guarantee you there will be problems that necessitate the maintenance going longer. I'm honestly not expecting to be able to play until Wednesday.

Really hoping tomorrow isn't a complete mess, but the convergence of launching the game on Steam with acknowledged incomplete license transfers for players, launching Shadowkeep, and launching New Light which could lead to a huge influx of new player sign-ons all on the same day just spells potential giant clusterfuck.

Well, decided to preload the game since it looks interesting. Warframe's dead for me after the alert rework so maybe this will be an adequate substitute (sarcasm in preceding two words may vary widely).

It's just a convergence of things that any competent developer would have trouble with happening simultaneously. Bungie is not a competent developer. Take that how you will.

Doing two giveaways for Shadowkeep now in SA Gamers discord just FYI. https://discord.gg/kV2HaFf

Happy to help those in need. The mods are required to spend their money because saving is for chumps. So I got a donation.

Will try to do a 3rd giveaway. Iím drawing at a little after midnight (Cajun time baby!)

Good luck and most importantly, see you all tomorrow for launch. I canít wait to see the discords and clans and thread going off!

Edit: not related to here but also giving away the new Call of Duty and Ghost Recon too (uplay+ sub). Enter all the giveaways. Itís for goon gamers

Whisper of the Worm, especially the jumping half, is probably the closest I've seen for an FPS looking like strait-up, gorgeous, 2D concept art.

Also the Pyramidion is a really cool location, even though we all blindsight through it, working on muscle memory alone.

Buying the materials is brute forcing your way to the rewards. The intended way to get 'em is from Nightfalls and possibly other stuff! I bet we're drowning in them in a few weeks.

Until we know how often the upgrade junk drops from playing the game it doesn't tell us much. All that stuff is gonna be in short supply the next few weeks but after that it's gonna be business as usual.

For new players, Amanda Holliday will have the quests for the Y1 campaigns (Red War, Osiris, Warmind) so it's possible that she'll have also the intro Cosomdrome mission available for vets who want to do it. Just guessing though

No story missions are gonna require you to pvp I can guarantee you. But there will be some exotic weapon quests that will, for sure.

Things that start out solo but inevitably railroad into mandatory pvp are, pretty universally, things that provide rewards designed explicitly for the pvp side of the game

If you want to make the argument that you deserve 100% of the fabulous weapons from quests then the response is you have to play 100% of the content types and if you don't want to do the latter you don't get to have the former, sorry

E: Thinking about it maybe Lumina is an exception but even there they throw you a bone and let progress be earned by a fire team so you don't have to sit there and maintain a 1.0 efficiency or higher or Shaxx starts laughing at you

I can't be the only person who wishes there was a fuckload more to do on Titan. An entire Hive-infested Arcology you really only visit in depth once.

Nope. Gotta download it again, spaceman. The Steam pre-load is encrypted, and signs point to the structure of the install being just different enough that you'd have to download it all again anyway.

Of course you can wait until after the game unlocks on Steam to give it a try.

Nobody can say for sure until it releases and turns from big blocks of encrypted prerelease stuff into actual file structure, but probably the latter.
