The 7th Number

Posted 16 March 2015 - 05:08 PM

Just looked at Bungie site and the Iron Banner shows boots and gauntlets along with sniper and auto rifle in the photo. Is this what they will have? I thought there was going to be a chest piece.

I've heard that image is just a stock that they use. I don't remember what was on the image the last time. The people (like megaman) that datamine have said it will be the machine gun, the AR, the chest and boots.

You can build a Hunter to have just as much armor as a Titan. All the statistics show that Hunters consistently outperform both Warlocks and TItans in Crucible, which implies that your theory (Hunters take the most skill) isn't true. Hunter supers consistently get more kills than Warlock or Titan supers. It sounds like you just want to sound like you're a skilled player because youi play Hunter.

LOL far from the true, if you played with RJ you would know he hates Hunters & that he is far from being skilled  :- (hehe)

 

PvP comes down to sticking together, taking cover and shooting lone wolves or idiots just going all out at you. If you have a team that communicates and stays at least in pairs its a win every single time.

Btw, I still need to get the trophy to run a strike with just your clan (Strength of the Pack trophy). Anyone want to joins Ghosts of Old Earth or otherwise just temporarily team up somewhere to knock it out?

LOL I hate using my Hunter. Ask anyone on here. Or, check my destiny status. ( http://destinystatus.com/psn/ArJay2k8 ) Look at my Hunter's PvP stats. See that giant 0? Yeah, he hasn't even touched PvP. Done? Ok, now go read my post again. I said Warlock is the most fun class to use in PvP, because, ya know, it's the class I use the most? (Re-check my status for PvP time played on each character to verify if you will.) I don't "sound" like anything. I'm an average, at best, player in PvP. (Pretty much a 1.0 K/D) I'm just giving my opinions on each class and how I feel about them in PvP. You're a funny dude, though.

 

I'm curious about these magical statistics. Can you post them? I want to read them.

 

EDIT: Oh and also, you seem to have missed my point entirely about Hunters, their armor and their squishyness. Even a Hunter will full armor can be killed during either GG or Arc Blade easily. It's not about their armor, it's about the way their supers are set up. Both Nova Bomb and FoH are practically instantaneous (With FoH being slightly more-so) and have decent size AoE's so it makes them very hard to avoid. GG and Arc Blade both have little start-up animations that you can see a mile away and can very easily be dodged and/or outrun. (Radiance also have a similar start-up animation which is why I compared it to the two in my post.)

 

EDIT 2: Also, keep in my mind with my characters, that Warlock is my third and the Hunter is my second. But, you know, if I loved playing as Hunter so much you'd think I would have already logged some PvP time with him by now wouldn't I? lol)

destinytracker.com

 

7/10 of the top K/D players are hunters. Hunters are far and away the best Crucible class due to their ease of use. I'm also still not sure what you mean when you are complaining about the supers. Hunter supers are the easiest to use, but you dont use them as a panic super. In fact, according to destinytracker, 97 out of the top 100 players with super kills are hunters.

I dunno but for me, at least, I feel like Hunters take the most skill to use mostly because of how squishy they are and how easy it is to kill them during their super/avoid their super entirely.

Perhaps only because their super can't be used in "panic" situations. You will still wreck face with Arc Blade if you play it smart. Pop it BEFORE you enter high-traffic areas / capture points / etc, and you will annihilate the other team. Also highly recommended is using the energy-wave perk with Arc Blade, as you get a OHKO ranged AND melee.

 

I like to throw a wave down a hall BEHIND the guys I want to melee, and then deal with the closer targets. It is a surprisingly effective mind-game.

 

*edit*

 

I didn't read any of your other posts between the one I quoted and now, so it looks like there was quite the discussion/debate on the subject lol.

Again, I'm not saying it's not a good class to use, I just feel it takes the most skill to be efficient with and I personally don't enjoy using the class. Keywords here, my opinion. That being said, all those statistics prove is that the best people in the world, ya know, the ones with the most skill? Yeah, they use Hunters. Because, if you have the skill that these guys have you can be absolutely deadly with a Hunter. Where as the Titan is more of a pick up and play type of class and the Warlock is somewhere in the middle of the two. Am I making any sense at all now?

I was super excited to find out Xur's stock got changed and that he had Red Death for sale. However, now that I have it I really don't have many reasons to play anymore. I would like to finish my exotic collection, but I don't really care enough about doing so to want to continue to run everything every week praying for a Monte Carlo or 4th Horseman. The amount of time I spend in Destiny has been in a steady decline for a while now. With Red Death added to my collection that is only going to continue. It was the last exotic I really wanted.

If you still need to do thorn add me, i'm on the last part as well. Won't be able to commit time to it this week though. PSN: corsair201

Same as last week, any PS3 players can feel free to friend request/msg me if they would like the VoG Exotic Chest checkpoint (same name as here).

 

Saw a Hard Light & Universal Remote drop, and I got my own very first Exotic drop from the chest: my 4th Icebreaker lol.

 

Another Icebreaker dropped again for someone else after we decided to clear through Atheon, so that seems to be in the pool this week.

 

Ran 2 Nightfalls: first run we had a Hawkmoon drop (one of two exotics that guy needed to complete the set), second run I got Insurmountable Skullfort (which I had JUST bought from Xur last week).

I haven't really played in 2 months. 1 month of that, I was without controller. But a 36 light chest piece and boots would be the exact pair of items which, when leveled, would boost my Titan from 31 to 32. Guess now is the time!

I decided not to get up because I dont think I have enough glimmer to buy anything saved up anyway. According to Reddit it worked again though. Did anyone get the goods?

 

I'll probably just do enough to get the chest for my Warlock so I can be 32 and also its a cool looking dress.

The 7th Number

Posted 17 March 2015 - 06:02 PM

I got up 3:50 central time, waited 12 minutes, then went to the tower and bought the chest piece for my warlock and the machine gun. So i was able to get in with my rank 5 and get what i needed. Not sure if i want to play iron banner this week though. I could use the hunter chest piece but honestly its not that great looking and it has more ammo for scout, which my boots also have so its kind of redundant.

 

Did three nightfalls and got the Mida Multi Tool, Harms Way machine gun, and i think shards.

 

Arjay was using the thunderlord in the nightfall and it just destroyed omnigoul, also patience and time was killing knights and captains with one headshot. So those are a couple good guns to use in the nightfall or even weekly.

Was trying to get good perks for jolders hammer. I wanted aiming it increases its effective range, field scout, and crowd control. 150 motes later i have a jolders hammer with crappy perks. This game loves to troll me.

You can also try getting surplus and field scout.  That combination would give you a lot more bullets in PVP.

I dont have any motes left. I feel so robbed. Right now my Jolders Hammer has Weapon increase stability, Field Scout, and Kill with final round increases reload speed. So not terrible, but not something i want to level up.

at least you guys were able to get something this morning.  I'm so pissed, it didn't work for me again this morning.  This is the second time I woke up for nothing.

Dang it - how do you get this to work? I'm on Xbox One so maybe it doesn't work there (though usually things are pretty consistent cross-platform in Destiny). I logged on before reset and was in the Tower. I had to go to orbit and back in to get the area to open up. But when I went in there I was rank 0 again. Do you need to be in orbit during the reset and then go to the Tower?

Also, know what really wrecks in the Nightfall/Heroic this week? Necrochasm - it is hell of fun to use for once.

Same thing happened to me, I think it was because I had the tower selected before the reset.  I did not the get the error message of not meeting requirements, and I did not have to swap a piece of armor to go to the tower.

On PS4, got into the tower 4:45 ish EST, just to make sure it had not reset. orbited, waited until 5:02, changed helm, went to tower and bought the IB machine gun as a rank 5, only had 12500 glimmer on me. Rerolled some stuff I had and turned it off.  I did not even try to without the helm switch,

 

Any other farming place? I can only take exclusion zone so much.

Yeah, gotta be in orbit during the reset changeover :(

 

I luckily got my Efrideets Spear + Auto Rifle back in January from random drops, so I wont have to grind out to Rank 5 this time around.

 

Speaking of, is it worth re-rolling Spear if my perks are Firefly + Find-More-Ammo (w/e the name of that perk is)?
