New Bungie game: Destiny

Recommended Posts

Dude, I feel your pain!  I'll be online this weekend in the evenings.  I'm finishing up my arms day weapons (2 more centurion snipes) and going to farm some glimmer (so broke).  I should get that done this afternoon.  I'm sitting at 221 light...getting there, just need more time.  I think that's pretty good considering my very limited play time this week =)

Speaking of Arms Day, what did you get?

Here's what I picked last week:

I feel like I pretty decent roll.  Got Danger Close, Full Auto, and a Stability perk in the final three.  It really needs the stability. I was just playing with it, and it has a lot of kick with those four bullets.  I wish I'd gotten headseaker instead of danger close because of the kick!  I would have been a machine!  But it handles well, like all Hakke to me.  I love it!

Y'all pick up anything cool?

I didn't have time to pick anything up from the arms dealer, I'll have to do it this week. I got lucky with strikes, been getting several engrams. I used the last three of coin on that Hal aluk or whatever his name is and I got 2 exotic engrams to drop, and 3 legendary engrams, got the Hawkmoon at 290, and the Nighthawk helmet for my hunter. Then one Legendary scout rifle and a auto rifle that are decent. My maxed character right now is 277. I'm slowly but surely getting there. This weeks nightfall is a bitch though. It's hard as hell. That trickle effect is the worst.

So I just found out my plant manager plays this game...that is so freaking awesome. 

 

I tried getting that black spindle...didn't work. Not high enough light level.

safe to say Bungie finally figured out what Destiny is and seems to finally be more concerned with fixing the current game as oppose to looking towards future expansions (not that I blame them- it's Activision that is prodding them)

Arms-Day to do!!!

So, if you are at least level one, you can get stuff.  If you're limited by time/glimmer, get the Omalon Sniper!  I got it when I leveled my gunsmith on a rep item turn int.  IT'S AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  My rolls are just OK, but the gun handles so well.  It has more impact than a LRD/Longbow/Her Benevolence.  This thing is really amazing!  I'm a below average sniper, but it helps a lot.  Not great aim assist, but it handles so very well.  I LOVE that thing!!!

I got myself up to 274/275 yesterday.  Looking forward to hitting the strikes and CoO.  I just ran the 36 strikes for the quests (I'm way behind) and did some other fill in things to get my quest logged clear.  Man, it was great!  I can't say enough how much I love the way upgrades come!  I just need to get back into doing the daily story missions and crucible missions for marks.  I have some gear I REALLY like that I can up grade.

TTK is the destiny we wanted.  I know they are going to drop the ball on some things later, but man, they really hit a homerun right now!

I soloed it but it was a bitch and I got lucky af

My advice is head over to r/fireteams or destiny lfg and ask for help but if you want to solo it. 

Stay in that room you spawn in, get a good sniper out and preferably a rocket launcher with tracking. Get the boss as much as you can right as he spawns. Clear adds, but make sure to stay in that room- once adds are completely cleared- go after boss. After two or three rounds he will spawn taken and poison bubbles where you stand. DON'T leave that room unless you absolutely have to, or run and get ammo then return. Clear those bastard takens that shoot the blinding bubbles first. 

Good luck- I hated that mission

I finally solo'd  it. I just sat in the room with my best auto rifle, a 294 lvl 1000 Yard Stare sniper and a rocket launcher. It wasn't too bad after i found the right combination.

Still haven't done the raid. It's hard to find people that actually are willing to teach and put effort to do it. Pisses me off to be honest.

Are you in a clan?  You should try to find one that works for you.  That's the best way to find raid mates.  I'm at 283....the grind is real!  I just need more time!

If I may dig this up, because some of y'all might be interested:  Sparrow Racing League goes live tomorrow with the weekly update!

https://www.bungie.net/en/News/News?aid=14086

So basically, competitive Sparrow Racing.  There are some microtransaction things for different sparrows, but everyone is able to get the same functional sparrow.  The buyable Sparrows are purely cosmetic.  Color me in!  It's a 3 week event, and I'm not sure how often it will cycle.  I'd love to have it cycle with Iron Banner so I can concentrate on each one at a time!  

I was watching Datto and PlanetDestiny's gameplay of the race tracks, and it looks fun.  Anyone going racing?

    • More ties to South Carolina.  https://www.sc.edu/uofsc/posts/2020/07/tepper_scholars.pcf.php#.XwzY8jNKg2y The University of South Carolina has announced the establishment of The Nicole and David Tepper Scholars Program in the university’s acclaimed Department of Sport and Entertainment Management. The Nicole and David Tepper Scholars Program will provide four-year scholarships to a cohort of four incoming freshmen each year. Tepper Scholars will receive $10,000 per year toward their education and will gain access to additional enrichment opportunities. Selection for the Tepper Scholars Program will be based on academic merit to recruit the best and brightest students, with an emphasis on supporting student diversity and first-generation students. The first cohort will receive additional funding this year to provide immediate relief for financial difficulties related to COVID-19. The new program is being created with an impactful gift from Nicole and David Tepper of more than $567,000 over the next three years. “The University of South Carolina is deeply grateful for David and Nicole Tepper’s leadership in supporting education excellence and opportunities across the Carolinas and here in Columbia,” says University of South Carolina President Bob Caslen. “This transformative and generous gift will make an immediate and lasting impact on the personal and professional success of the next generation of sport and entertainment management leaders.” The Teppers’ charitable efforts are focused on the core beliefs that everyone deserves an education and access to health care resources, and that no one should go to bed hungry. David Tepper is the founder and president of Appaloosa Management, L.P. and owner of the NFL’s Carolina Panthers and Charlotte’s Major League Soccer team. “Dave and I want to make sure education and the college experience is accessible during this global pandemic,” says Nicole Tepper. "This gift is designed to help students stay in school and on the path toward earning their degree. UofSC's Department of Sport and Entertainment Management is one of the very best programs in the country with an impressive faculty roster that is innovative and business focused. We have seen firsthand their industry expertise, passion and commitment to building the next generation of leaders in our field. We hope this gift will ensure continued personal growth and outstanding career preparation for UofSC sport and entertainment management students.” The university’s Department of Sport and Entertainment Management is recognized as the No. 1 program in the nation and has built a roster of world-class faculty and alumni. The first cohort of four Tepper Scholars will be selected from the more than 300 freshmen who have been accepted to the degree program for fall 2020. Future cohorts will be recruited for fall 2021 and 2022. “Our students are incredibly fortunate to learn from industry leaders, and this powerful new partnership with Nicole and David Tepper will shape the future of sport and entertainment management for generations to come,” says Matt Brown, chair of South Carolina’s Department of Sport and Entertainment Management. “We are deeply grateful and very excited for the young people whose lives will be changed by these innovative programs and scholarships.” The Department of Sport and Entertainment Management is part of the university’s College of Hospitality, Retail and Sport Management and offers bachelor’s, master’s and Ph.D. degree programs.
