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)?

For PVP, final round on 3 round sniper is a must, just empty 2 rouns after reloading or wwhen you about to pick up some ammo.

 

armor piercing was also a must before the nerf, maybe they will unnerf it someday.

You're not the only group who has one single guy who can't get the Crux. Done it every week since launch and that one guy from our group just doesn't want to have it drop. His son who has only gone with us to replace members three different weeks got the Crux twice today. The third Crota attempt, three Crux's dropped which has given me my third since I stopped switching Crux's around on characters so it wouldn't drop for me anymore.

You are not allowed to retire until I get my Ghorn...so you might be playing destiny for the rest of your life  :-({|=

 

Side note, 3rd Crux (yup the Husk has only dropped for me once so 2 Cruxes that are worth nothing). We'll see how the nightfall treats me and we still have 1 more Crota.

You know, husk is the only white item I ever see in my lost mail. No greens, as expected, but I did not think husk. I have 2 in there right now.

Just ranked up New Monarchy to rank 28, still no shader. 45 ranks between three characters and no shader or ship with NM.  Whats even worse is i have a total of 98 ranks between all characters and all factions and only have 3 shaders to show for it, and two of them are the same shader.

Yeah, I still have 2 in my vault and one on each toon.  And that's after I deleted a bunch to make space for other stuff.

 

My thoughts were to max out Necro's for each toon and also keep Eidolon's for each toon.

Of course Necro isn't all that and well... you need the crux to drop, which it hasn't for me [-( .  Now I just want one crux to check it off my list.

Does anyone have general tips for HM Crota? Seems it's becoming the fluke for my group(s) to down him on Hard, and I'm just trying to brainstorm things we may be missing.

 

I generally use middle/balcony strat w/ three swords doing 3-down > 2-down (to avoid enrage) > ?-down(w/e is left). We go under the right-hand tower for Ogre's phase, and usually have one member behind the right tower for Boomer distraction.

 

This has been a mixed bag, with the usual annoyances like Crota getting up too fast / boomers not being distracted / etc. Earlier tonight we tried having a Titan put up a bubble in the dais where Crota stands on left side, and that plus the above seemed to cover our bases for Boomer distraction.

 

I'm just wondering, after everything I've listed, are there any other tips people have? Frankly there was quite a lot of human error on the parts of some of my team, but with that said, any help would be appreciated.

Well here is my exotic report: from 2 NF, 2 death singer, 2 crota NM & 2 crota HM the only weapon I got was...no land beyond! (OMG I thought that I would never get that!) I also got the saint helm from one of my NF.

I really think that bungie has lifted the exotic drops restrictions because I'm seeing all kind of weapons all over the place... I've seen two ghorns (one from NF, one from CE NM), hard light, truth, tlw and DB.

There are just a lot of scrubs out there. You can usually tell within 15 mins or so if its going to be a struggle, either due to lag or incompetent dudes, then you just have to decide if you want to stick it out or bail and find another group.

 

2 nightfalls done and I have a sharded devil you dont and vanquisher III to show for it. Nothing of note from weeklies.

 

Seems like IB is taking the place of the raid this week for most of my friends list. I may just get my warlock to 32 with the IB dress and call it a week.

 

I did join a group with a friend last night thinking we were doing hard atheon and it ended up being normal. Some guy made everyone wait after we got inside so he could roll a blunt...so you can imagine how that went.

Ran VoG HM yesturday, dissapointed that I got mats,timebreaker, and 3rd found verdict.  Then I checked my mail and got my 1st fatebringter and 2nd VoC.

 

Also, is anyone notice better luck in IB rerolls lately:

 

Timurs with explosive/reload and damage perks

LMG w/ stability/distance/reload perks

RL w/ grenade horseshoes/field scout/spray and play

Perun's with distance and accuracy perks

scout with explosive and reload perks

Already had almost perfect snipers so no need for rerolls

 

I've rerolled every spare IB wep I've had and getting killer rolls using less than 8 motes each time.

O:)

Have any hunters in the group go invisible and run out first after ogres. They can get inside and hit the knights and clear thrall, so you don't really have to worry about much when you're running up.

Remember when i said my warlock and hunter had the most kills in a pvp match at 33, my titan only 30. Well i shattered that record. Just played a match in control and had 44 kills, 2 assists, 16 deaths, 2 captures and a total score of 8,650. And we won. Im not really sure what happened, but the match ended due to time, not score, so there was extra time in there for me to gather kills. Pretty exciting though. Now i wish i could see that little score ranking thing you used to see with your friends when you highlight the destiny square in the XMB menu. They never have that anymore, would like to know where i rank with the rest of my friends now. LOL

I think its only better to do normal first if you are after guns like black hammer, hunger of crota, swordbreaker, light of the abyss that only drop at crota on normal. These guns wont drop at crota if you do it on hard the first time through. Otherwise i dont think it matters. Doing it on hard will drop both armor and guns up to crota. The deathsinger part can be done either difficulty and you get the same rewards. So it just depends if you want the normal crota guns or not.

Wow, back to back decent weeks from this different and better version of Xur. He's selling something new, Hard Light. I couldn't resist so I just bought two.

 

He's also selling an Exotic Helmet engram, Apotheosis Veil, Third Man, and the Mk. 44 Stand Asides.

I got that Apotheosis from an engram I bought off him last week, but I need third man and stand asides. I might save my motes for rerolling IB guns this week and skip the engram lottery :)

And yet another week where I don't even go to Xur. 379 Strange coins and nothing to go with them  :drool: . Same goes with any type of shard.

I have 450 coins and nothing to buy, he wont sell the monte carlo for another 6 months at least. Doesnt look like any of the exotics have better stats than the ones i already have.

I will say i love the Titan Stand Aside boots. They are probably my most used exotic in PVP for the titan. In fact i was looking at my pvp stats and noticed i have 1,076 melee kills with my titan because of the shoulder charge move, my hunter only has 536 and she has played 20 more matches than my titan.
