A golden helix streaked skyward from the Helvault. A thunderous explosion shattered the silver monolith and Avacyn emerged, free from her prison at last.



Less than 600 infamy from legend and multiple games in a row, we take a commanding lead and at less than 10 motes from the primeval they just don't bank, giving the other team the time they need to come back and win. So frustrating.

Why didn't you bank?

Also infamy legend rank requiring wins to progress sucks when neither of the other core activities do. *finds monkey's paw*

I didn't have any motes / had already banked mine, was invading / killing blockers / too late to the enemies.

Aside from comp, you mean? Gambit legend used to be even closer to comp and losses set you back instead of just not moving you forward.

I posted my normal end-of-season "hey this is what you need to do before the season ends" post for overchill. Figure'd I'd cross post it here too:

quote:

Guess what, it's the end of the season (as we know it). That's right, this rather good Season of the Chosen is over in a week, and we are now moving on to Season of the We dont know the name yet still on May 11th. As with all season endings, here is an effort post on the things you need to know going into the next season and what to do before the next season starts.

Heir Apparent is gettable RIGHT NOW in Guardian Games! Grab it! It's good! The Cata makes you a tanky raid boss! If you don't get it now, you'll have to wait a whole year before you can get it again!

Bungie is finally changing the shader system to something good and reasonable. Instead of this single use shader garbage, they are now permanent unlocks and can be applied through a user interface. Hooray. However, because those single use shaders give you some glimmer and legendary shards when you dismantle them... Go dismantle them! Like right now. Get those resources! Most shaders can be given to Rahool at 5 per to help make this process faster, but if you are like me and don't touch your shader inventory, you'll probably be dismantling for a while.

Vault of Glass is releasing in Destiny 2 on Saturday, May 22nd at 10am Pacific Time. The required power level for the day 1 will be 1300, which is powerful cap right now. That's right... to play Vault of Glass Day 1, you wont have to grind up a single power level if you are max this season. Yay! Also, due to the fact this is a returning raid, guides on how to do mechanics and stuff are already posted on the internet, meaning that this Day 1 raid will be the most accessable it's ever been. If you are interested in day1 raiding, Go make a LFG post for it, or join one that exists. This is really the best content that destiny has to offer and it'll be easy to take part.

Finally, If you are a twitch prime subscriber, there are some free items to grab. Get 'em here: https://gaming.amazon.com/loot/destiny2

i downloaded again just to get the heir apparent cata but like a dummy bought the season pass+1 without realizing I had about a week left lmao. I'll probably finish the pass without forking out silver but leaving the seal and all the bright dust on the table hurts

e: also man the story is still such a mess, going from BL to New Light v3.0 to Season of the Chosen to being introduced to Nuldren on the Moon

Maybe making there be different scannable items every week wasnít the best idea.

You don't need the season pass for Heir! And... yeah, buying the pass now is kind of a waste of money.

Hop in discord and ask, there are people there such as myself who will point out all the scannables while soloing the thing for you. Three weeks of 30 minutes a week and youíre done.

I mean at least I get the bow without having to spend a cipher on it later and the catalyst which unless they changed something I can't get after the season ends? And most of the challenges aren't too heinous, but there are definitely a bunch I can't get done in a week

Yeah, the bow is good and you can do presage real quick to get the most overpowered gun in destiny history.

It's sticking around, but DMT's nerf is close on the horizon. It'll be nerfed by June probably. Bungie already said it's on the chopping block sooner rather than later.

Also iirc if you want access to harbinger/presage after their seasons you need to buy the Deluxe version of BL but I might be wrong about that.

I guess i suck because it doesn't feel stupid good to me. Just feels like a good to strong exotic primary. Feels like what that sort of thing should be so you actually have a reason to use it over exotic special/heavy.

e: I guess Expunge is the new Presage?

Sounds like they should rework the catalyst then. Or just have it not have that bonus in crucible or something.

I'm with you here but I don't play PvP. I tried it for a bit and it felt good but felt "fair."

As far as exotics go catalyzed Heir Apparent doesn't feel fair. There are moments in the game I used to worry about (trading blows with yellow bars, sharp swells of adds), but no longer have to.

A lot of the PvE/PvP balance issues in this game could be corrected by adding 'except guardians' to a bunch of exotics and catalysts.

Oh poo poo, it's dropping on my birthday. Looks like I took off on the right day.

Pistol exotic seems pretty neat, hope that it signifies there are going to be other cryo weapons in the future. I'd love to see a weapon like the Cryo thrower from Deep Rock or from Duke Nukem (only if we get a "Mighty Boot" finisher).
