Looking forward to tonight. Also, just throwing this out there. If you need someone for a Fireteam, let me know. Even if I've already done the mission, I don't mind running through it again to help out.

I plan on joining whoever as an open slot for a 3 man fireteam. I normally start a little later than most MPs.

I had so much fun with game tonight. For some reason I couldn't get into any chat parties, though. Played with Badger and Jack and it was great. We only did Co-op stuff and it was fun. When we were patrolling we got into a community event. We failed, but I thought that was really cool. Going to try some MP tonight. I am in a race to get to level 20. There is some really cool swag when you get there.

I also was trolling around the Bungie website and you can access the tower and do everything on your computer that you can do in game. I like that. Let's me obsess more about this game when I'm at work.

I'm up for a strike tonight. How many in the strike team? Jack and I played a little Pvp last night. Boy, much different than battlefield. I've got a guy in my crosshairs, dead for sure, then all of a sudden he jumps above me and blasts me with his power. Lots of a one shot sniper kills too. I think it will grow on me though.

Really awesome playing last night! Powered myself almost up to rank 9. Got to get up there before I go to London so I don't get too far behind you all!! Unfortunately, being on the west coast I wasn't cool enough to be in one of the many fire teams, so Kamakazi and I went off and plowed through the maps. That was more entertainment than anything! Nothing like Kamakazi living up to his name and charging a boss to give him the melee punch, only to watch him get the beat down and then his body go flying 50 feet up in the air!! I felt like I was playing Battlefield with all the reviving I was doing. GURU joined us later, so we did have a bit of an MP presence, but I did get some killer weapons and armor towards the end of the night. I like being able to kill Knights with a single head shot. Loads of fun, I may be on late tonight on my Vita, so if I join you guys and am silent, that will be the reason.

The sniping is way too easy in this game. There's no bullet drop or scope sway and your movement doesn't slow down while you're ADSing. I even looked like a pro sniper last night.

I didn't get in as much play time as I expected last night. Setting up the new console and getting things installed and configured took longer than anticipated. Then I just felt like I was on the short bus with new menus, new controller, etc etc. Still haven't gotten my headset working right, or figured out the party system.

In 2 short sessions I only managed lvl 4. Was odd, I hardly saw any other players outside of the tower. I let the wife play a while, and she had other folks running around in the open areas all over the place. I thought maybe mine didn't have as many randoms since so many MPs were online, but I didn't see any indication of ya'll being in the same server/world as me either.

Looking forward to putting a few more levels on so I'm ready for a strike. That's where the good loot is!

Johnny, hit me up when you get online. We are few of the west coasters here and so it's hard to find some fire teams once all these east coaster and central crews buddy up, I usually get on about 8pm.

...but a lot of fun. Maybe make it a primary weapon. Running with a good assault rifle, sniper secondary and an LMG backup makes you a beast at any distance.

Didn't realize you were West Coast! Good to know. I'm usually not on until 10 or 10:30, but will hit you up if you're still around. For the next month or so I might also be popping on between 3pm-5pm here and there until work hours get back to normal.

My first experiment with the PS4 share function was to catch a clip dancing at the tower. Now I just need to download the editing tool and see if I can figure out how to add in some funky beats.

Either they changed the dances, or each race has different ones. Pretty sure my Human Hunter in Beta had way better moves than my Awoken Hunter does.

Had fun with Stains and Badge, found out Badger double jumps like Stains pilots a helicopter.:boink:

Oi....

I'll have you know, that flying a helicopter is a very complex process that requires a helicopter pilot to manipulate the helicopter flight controls in order to achieve controlled aerodynamic flight.[1] The changes made to the flight controls are transmitted mechanically to the rotor, producing aerodynamic effects on the helicopter's rotor blades which allow the helicopter to be controlled. For tilting forward and back (pitch), or tilting sideways (roll), the angle of attack of the main rotor blades is altered cyclically during rotation, creating differing amounts of lift at different points in the cycle. For increasing or decreasing overall lift, the angle of attack for all blades is collectively altered by equal amounts at the same time resulting in ascents, descents, acceleration and deceleration.:eyebrows:


And double jumps involve...er...jumping...twice! :becky:

Played a little above my pay-grade last night and I paid for it. Joined Jake and Remec on a Venus mission. It wasn't all that difficult, I just couldn't get any kills. The only bright side was that I picked up an awesome assualt rifle. Spent most of the night on patrol just trying to level up grenades and powers. I am definitely up for some Fireteam missions tonight since I've fallen behind a little on the beginning stories.

My Leveling Up OCD is in overdrive right now with this game. I am so obsessed with it. Not so obsessed that I would forget to pick up one of my kids, though. You'd have to be a real idiot to do that.

My only complaint so far is that I wish the fireteam could be more than 3 people.

Last night after I shut the PS4 down and went to bed I still could hear Remec saying "I'm down." over and over again.

Last night, I fire up the game and see Beeano & Break have an open spot.

Later in the night we attempted to play Strike-Ocean of Storms on the moon (Level 12)
and had our ass handed to us.

On a side note to Beeano and Jack….I still can't figure out why my ass hurts this morning.

Don't forget about the Gold Chest. Jack, Breaking and I completed the Earth 5/5 and got a lovely coloured Sparrow.

Jack and I did a Public Event on the moon. We had to defend a position with a 3/4(?)m time limit and have a signal link to 100%. It helped we had those Pike bikes and a level 20.

Had some great games yesterday! Really going to be tough to leave this game behind, but at least being in London will make up for it! I didn't have time to hook up with any fireteams at first, so I did a bunch of crucible matches. Boy is that painful! Bungie sucks at making transitions from running to scoping to firing so if you are running and you scope up on a guy you may only fire one bullet or you may put the weapon down and start running again because you accidentally pushed in the thumb stick. I can't count how many times I went toe to toe with an enemy and pointed my weapon at the ground after engaging in a firefight. On the bright side I got at least a triple kill if not a quadruple kill with the plasma orb in a crucible match and I got two rare metals...one for winning a round in the last 30 seconds when we were down and another for killing the leader of a round 3 times in one match. Overall, I am going to be going back in there for more pain and suffering to see if I can do any better!

None of that topped listening to mechatool, Beano and Jack obsess about a camel toe on someones armor...I think they spent a good 5 minutes inspecting it! :motorboat: - camelboating:like motorboating, but with cameltoes.

It's my female warlock that has the impressive camel toe. We were in the middle of a strike mission, when one of my daughter wakes up with a bad dream. I go and tend to her only to come back to Beeano and Jack violating my warlock.

Might also let Watchdogs go, but I'm undecided cause I wouldn't mind grinding side missions some more depending on the longevity of Destiny.

sam007
09-12-2014, 06:35 PM
The more I learn about the game, the more excited I am about it after reaching level 20. The game only then begins.

Do patrols from time to time to build up your Vanguard XP, you'll need it later. (Beano's tip)

Collect the each planet's respective resource to turn into the Vanguard Quartermaster for Vanguard XP and $$$.

I'm finding Venus to be the "easier" to spot cause of the contrast. Mars is not fun at all, it looks like an old tree stump that's blended into the background.

You'll burn through a lot of low level gear, so no point "saving" it, dismantle and build up the glimmer.

The decrypting dude near the Vault, you'll need to build up XP with him as well, either from decrypting items or purchasing some off him.

Deciding how you want to build your character is the fun part.

So far, I'm loving the Hand Cannon, been using it since I found how OP it is if you can consistently get crit shots on target.

The shotgun is next in line for close encounters.

The elemental damage is interesting. Really easy to understand, if the MOB glows a certain colour, that is its elemental weakness.

Another initial thumbs up here after playing the shit out of this title the last couple of days. I was worried about the longevity of the game once you hit 20 but like Beans said, thats just when it seems to get going. I've made it through most of the campaign (I think) and then hit 20. Once that happened I saw the daily and weekly "challenges" in the sidebar when you look for a location to play. It seems this is where you can earn some of the high speed gear while continuing the co-op gameplay and if I'm right, this is where the game will have some lasting power. Bungie can release some new challenges to keep the community interested assuming there are periodic map updates too. I play Crucible a couple of times yesterday and didn't care for it, but then again I was without fellow MP's on maps I've never played against gamers who have done nothing but PvP since release. This game certainly has a lot of little nuances that are fun to discover.

Also, the Strike Missions have proven to be my favorite so far. Tough co-op gameplay that have cool rewards, unlocked at 15 or 16 I think.

Great games last night with Gink and Stains early and then Jack and Madlob later. Made it all the way to Level 10 and was still in bed not long after midnight. I appreciate you guys being willing to take the time to help on those early missions to get me leveled up.

Great co-op game. Looking forward to getting up to larger squads. I guess that happens with the later strike missions?

Still have no clue what grimoire cards and cloaks and all that stuff does. I'll go looking for a source that explains it and post a link if I find anything.

Good progress for one night! Took me all week getting in little 1-2 hour sessions to hit level 10. Was nice to get in a longer session yesterday and finally team up with some MPs. Looking forward to teaming up on strike missions and the like, as they offer bigger battles and more challenges for a full fireteam.

I think it's funny that a week ago, Bungie said in an interview that during release week there will be plenty of 'tyre kickers' as they called them. Quick to dismiss the hype and lack of depth and level progression. And that players who stick with it will be rewarded with a richer experience over time.
Sure enough it looks like they are true to their word with more options being announced regularly.

Yes, it does get dull having to stomp the same ground over and over every time a team mate wants to do a level (which reminds me, I need to start the story again and do the Old Russia level for the 20th time).
But on the plus side, the gameplay is solid, there are no issues joining available MPs and plenty of weapons and other items to get stuck into.
Plus you get to laugh at SouthPaw dressed as a babe and dance the night away!

All in all it's good fun with a bunch of MPs and makes a nice change playing for more than 10 seconds before a sniper bullet pierces my skull...

Believe it or not, that was my first time through those missions so it worked out well!
I guess I've spent too much time screwing around on patrols, doing strikes for new loot, in the crucible clearing bounties, etc etc. I'm leveled quite a bit higher than the story missions I'm on.
I'm obviously more interested in the whole RPG levelling up, getting new gear, etc aspect of the game.
The Venus missions were a lot of fun, nice to have some new types of enemies.

When you have the option to upgrade a weapon/armor you will use the weapon parts or when you upgrade your armor you will use your plating or items that you've harvested.

I would recommend holding off on using your materials for upgrades until you get legendary gear so you can, I would also recommend not wasting any materials on lower end gear when you start moving up in lvl and doing strikes/pvp/bounties...etc..etc you will get better gear Engrams. Focus on 20 and then get some + light gear so your lvl increases and your experience get's better.

I quit a hair shy of 19 last night. Cleared out bounties like crazy yesterday. Still only 2 missions through Venus. Screwing myself on story mission rewards, as they are too low level for me, but having a good ol' time.

Decided to finish the night with the bounty to kill whatsit the unchained ogre or whatever. Didn't realize the game would do matchmaking for a strike and only put two players in. Hard enough to whittle that guys life down and stay alive with all the thralls, knights, and wizards with 3 players.

We got a bad start on our first shot, after unloading our heavy weapons on the guy an oddly placed shrieker and getting cornered by a mob of knights ended it fast. Somehow on the second attempt, starting with low ammo and no heavy we pulled it off. It was quite the battle.

Strikes are definitely my favorite mission types, can't wait for big ol' MP raids.

Beano, Badger and myself attempted a level 22 strike mission. (It was a Daily, forgot to mention that, there are no auto revives)

We kept getting one shot from red mobs.

No idea if its because our primary weapons are too low of rank, or a collective of gear which is not even level 22 as a whole, or the fact that we may need a Titan and their shield ability for us to take refuge to heal up. :confused:

I did manage to get a purple primary pulse rifle so getting that to max damage may make a small difference, but still hoping for a purple skill cannon.

If you fully unlock a green you can get 4 parts. 2-3 if it is partially leveled up. Worth equipping junk gear while turning in bounties or picking up mail to get them upgraded before dismantling.

I've only had 1 blue weapon so far. It took 32 parts for full upgrade, but that was 16 for first damage boost upgrade and unlocking armor penetration bullets, then 16 for a second damage upgrade. Hopefully they don't all take that many! I've got piles of sapphire wire from armor, but always short on weapon parts.

I helped Jack last night with his 200 kills bounty mission while I farmed for loot chests and called them out when I did. Noticed some interesting things I noticed.

I did the Moon Patrol missions this morning after my son woke up around 0630 and tested my theory out. Will post "findings" in Farming topic. http://www.teammp.net/VB_TeamMP/showthread.php?10654-Farming&p=308628#post308628

Thanks Stains and Beans for helping me complete my "Heroic" Shrine of Oryx bounty. I figured Lvl12 version would be a breeze to do solo, but those bastards were a lot tougher than I was expecting. Glad I picked up the "10 Hive Ultras or Majors" bounty as well before I headed out there, since that's what the place was crawling with!

I went to the Cosmodrome last night to complete the "Kill 10 Hive Ultras". I know there are a couple at the end by the lake, the area where you listen to the radio signals.......anyway. I did some exploring past that and found a tunnel that takes you to an area I hadn't seen before. It went on forever and I finally ended up to the Devil's Lair area where you destroy the Spidertank....and sure enough there was one there just roaming around. Being by myself, I high-tailed it out of there, but it just made me realize how big these areas are.

No problem, Lob. I know my line "Oh Shit! I'm Donw" was repeated often. I died 58 times during the 2 strikes. It would take almost a full clip of my Pulse Rifle Ammo to take down one Deng. Crazy. It was fun, but exhausting.

No worries, it was funny seeing RC with his marshmallow gun doing damage to level 24 mobs. That's where all the commotion was about, if either South or myself went down, the mobs just had to look at RC and we'd wipe, so it was pretty intense at times. It took us a good 45m to complete the 2nd strike mission, not enough DPS as a group. But South has a good tactic for taking down that boss on Mars, Dust Palace.

Great times last night with Lore and Grandpa. Deep into the Mars missions and on the verge of getting Level 20. Continue to be impressed with how the game brings you along and keeps throwing more and harder enemies at you in kind of a perfect accelerating pace. The maps and the firefight areas are all really well designed.

We also played a crucible match, which wasn't as bad as I remember the beta being, but still soul-crushing regardless. Way too COD-ish for my taste. My 52-year old reflexes just don't have it in them to win many 1-on-1 gunfights with people 1/4th my age. I like that there were some vehicles in there though.

Did a little farming last night and ended up with a legendary fusion rifle from a blue engram, a little bit better helmet and boots, and a ton of plasteen and weapons parts from all the scraps. Sorry Spike that I seemed to leave right as you got there. I had some time to kill before dinner and I was just ending when you came in. Mecha and I went back to that spot later and had some luck. We kept killing the knight though and had to keep starting over.....guess he couldn't handle our swagger. Crucible games last night we good I thought. Battlefield it is not, but that's a good thing. I thought our fireteam did ok considering our nooby factor was pretty high. After that we were going to try the VoG, but Mecha and Grandpa got carded at the door so we had to leave.

Yeah, PvP, not my thing, the time to kill, and run and gun, just does not permit "precise" shooting when they're jumping all over the place and getting hulk smashed or nova bombed. I don't get too excited about getting PvP kills but last night, it was enjoyable when they would eat my blade. :lol:

I apparently did something to piss off the Traveller yesterday. 4 hour session and for the first time in the game I didn't make any noticeable progress or get a single item better than what I already had.

1 Hour working on a "Complete 5 Matches of Clash" bounty + Exotic Weapon "500 Void Kill points". Started with 111 points, ended with 65.
Thought I'd do the level 24 Vanguard Strike playlist for marks + loot. Playing a "random" strike turned out to be devil's lair, over and over again. Loot was level 16 rares at best.
3 Runs on the daily heroic story mission, not a single loot reward. Plus my third run I hit a public event on the way to skywatch, got 4 marks for gold on it, then received 0 marks instead of 5 for completing the mission.
Got the Cryptarch up to level 7. Went to grab my mail. Instead of the usual 2 decoherent 1 legendary engram only received 2 rare loot engrams for some more throwaways.
Finished up hunting spirit blooms on Venus. Most successful portion of the session. I saw a spirit bloom, I picked the spirit bloom, I got a spirit bloom in my inventory.

Good attempts last night for VoG, only to realize we're light on the DPS as a group.

Like Beano mentioned before, the sure way to get purple gear is doing the Strike Playlist to gain XP and Marks. Its a grind, but you know you'll get a piece of kit which suites you.

Southtown mentioned his son and MadyB complete missions together, its makes the farming and grinding go by a lot faster.

Late, late, late in the night, Beano, Mitch and myself attempted the Weekly Nightfall and it was thanks to Mitch's little hidie hole and Beano's clutch kill that gave us the pass. That strike mission is definitely worth doing each week when you're ready. Its not gonna be easy thats for sure.

Good times again last night running Queen's Wrath missions with Grandpa, Epic, and Lore. We also dropped in on new MP Fencehead for a mission too. Good times.

I was able to go all the way from 22 to 24 by picking up a legendary helmet in the first mission and a legendary chest piece in the second. Super sweet. We played a couple of more, but alas no boots or gauntlets.

As you face a lot more higher-powered enemies, the game definitely demands more patience and tactics - I'm really enjoying that part of it.

I still am not clear on what types of weapons cause damage against what type of enemies and that causes me some frustration as I may not be carrying all the right weapon types. It really became clear when we were battling a horde of Level 24 psions with the blue cloud around them. I couldn't seem to come up with the right weapon to cause them any damage at all.

I'm gonna go in search of a youtube video that explains it better but if anyone knows of one please post.

Spike, make sure you're doing the Daily Heroic Story, the Weekly Heroic Strike as they drop upgrade material and strange coins for even better gear.

There is a lot to this game and it just gets deeper as you level up some more. My guess is the ultimate goal is level 30, so you can take on the level 30 Raids. (from what i heard, so don't hold me to it)

I should end this week with 77 marks left over, be able to get to 150 after the reset and pick a new gun from the vanguard arms dealer. My exotic bounty for thorn is mocking me, but not going to burn myself out grinding crucible without a decent void weapon.

What's the best use for motes? Spent my strange coins on my "knucklehead radar" helmet, but have 25 or so motes

Daily Heroic Story missions, do the hardest level if possible to get 2X the Ascendent material.

Your first Public Event can also give you one, if you're lucky.

The Raid also gives Ascendent material, dismantling Exotic armour.

Use the Mote of Light to get exotic engram, its worth 500 XP when you decrypt it with the Cryptark.

Lizard Squad has not explained reasons for its attack, though days before it wrote on Twitter: " We're predicting a lot of mad gamers this weekend".

My question is how do they have the time to orchestrate these attacks in between going to school and spanking the monkey over Justin Bieber posters?

Less than 25% to kill off the Boss for this weeks Nightfall, only to have my internet crap out and leave Beano and Dins hanging around. I hope they at least got to complete the Nightfall. I thought it was the usual PSN going down or Destiny server. After I tried to get on the internet to check, that's when I clued in and tried everything possible to see if all I needed was a modem or router reset.

That did not get me back in the game so I called it an early night.

If you're not level 28 with near max damage with your primary and the correct elemental damage, purple and red/orange, also as close to max damage as possible, but minimum 250 damage, you won't survive.

If you cannot even survive the Weekly Heroic, you won't stand a chance in Nightfall.

For poops and giggles, we can try, but don't expect to survive if you peak too long. :lol:

np, playing from the middle of the platform, not a good idea, you're exposed to too many angles and makes it really hard to get revived. The ramps at least provide some cover. I keep forgetting I can go stealth.

That strike came up again in the playlist later last night, so got some more practice in sticking to the ends of the ramps. Only had a few challenges with the mobs that spawn out the doors, but that probably would have been less an issue with a fireteam that was communicating, and all using the same strategy than it was with randoms doing random things.

I think you guys might be talking about the boss that me, Lore, and Grandpa just couldn't beat last night in the Weekly Heroic Strike.

If so, it's the one with the dude who fires both rockets and lasers and who spawns at one end of the room, stands there for a bit, and then moves down the middle to the other end of the room. On each side are platforms that you can either traverse across the top or across the bottom.

We had one try where we got him about 1/3 of the way down, but we kept getting slaughtered by all the additional enemies that would spawn from doors on the sides.

I did notice that he seemed susceptible to grenade damage.

We finally gave up after like 4 tries cause it was getting late. We were all level 25's, so I think we were still a little underpowered and we also had severe ammo shortage problems from having to take out the guy in the tank just before that.

Anyone know the name of that strike? I wanna look up some youtube tips.

Dust Palace maybe? Unless that's the other mars one with the flayers...

Like Beans said, staying at the end/ramp opposite the boss works better than trying to take cover up on the platforms. I'd always snipe from behind the crates, but that method falls apart at higher levels.
I usually just snipe the guy in the head over and over between the rounds of fighting off mobs.

He is actually kind of useless to me. Unless I get the engram, the only other thing I can buy is the gauntlets. The ones I have now have more defense and light and they are even leveled all the way up. Not sure it's worth it.

Ice Breaker? I got mine from the cryptarch the other night, it's pretty sweet. Wrecks the solar shield wizards and centurions. Its going to make it hard to choose what to equip once I have an exotic primary.

How many shards do you get out of an exotic? I've got 50+ motes and it seems like Xur is one offering non-cosmetic items for them. Figured I might get exotics useless to me, but will have to make the decision between stashing for new characters later, or breaking down into shards, since I seem to get 1 shard to every 5 energies these days.

Kind of sucks that queen's wrath legendaries no longer break down to shards. I guess it made shards too easy to get, but without that, there's basically no point in doing queen's wrath missions. The bounties are only good if I've got nothing else to do. Get a bit of experience. But the rep doesn't go to my faction, the diplomat sells basically nothing useful, and it's a lot of work for legendary chest and helmet armor that's no better than what I have and only breaks down to normal material.


Yeah - that's it. It basically one-shotted anything that didn't have a shield in the Level 22 strike that I was running through with Czech.

Yup, I ran quite a few level 24 strikes with it yesterday and was mightily impressed. Can't wait to get its damage bumped up, and unlock the perk to make enemies combust for area damage.

I'm just happy my router didn't crap out on me during our run last night. I have a Belkin Router. They did some kind of update that didn't work. (Maybe they are partners with Dice).

It was a matter of execution after we figured out what tactic to run, when we finally went with Relic holder, puts up a bubble and inside team DPS while in the bubble, it worked. Made my job easier from then on, just take out mobs, cleanse, teleport, cleanse some more, jump to island, bubble up, give inside team the 5s warning, jump back, wait to teleport, rinse and repeat.

We actually were down to 0s for Time's Vengeance, which means, it was time to get teleported again.

Wow. You were up way past your bed time. I'm exhausted and almost killed the carpool by almost falling asleep at the wheel this morning.

That VOG run was pretty epic if you ask me. It took us about an hour and a half. I don't think we wiped until we got spotted in the Gorgon Labyrinth.

I got some sweet swag, too. I got 5 ascendant shards, 3 ascendant energies, the Ice Breaker Sniper Rifle and the Found Verdict Shotgun which has an auto fire upgrade.

I need to finish the Nightfal Strike, but want to run the weekly heroic at the very least tonight since there is a bounty for it. I also have to do some serious farming to upgrade what I have now. I turning into a DPS whore.

From what I'm getting, each stage in our progress to level 30 doing bounties, nightfall, raids, is to build up our skills so we avoid dying. You cannot have a death on hard mode for VoG.
