Crap whish I knew that, I deleted that one a while ago  :-& , which thinking about it, I find it hard to believe I deleted it, unless it was on my 2nd character that got scratched  :wall:

I deleted multiples of that shader, I think it looks really ugly.

Nothing good from Atheon this week, got only Atheon Epilogue and just ships and sparrows + energies. Got the Crux of Crota w my Hunter, it was on my 2nd time done HM w her. Titan got 2 NLB, Warlock still need to finish Crota, I joined a group from the Bridge, the moment we start I knew this group ain't good, one guy said we can just stay and shoot the other side from where we started and ogres will come out :D then it didn't work and everybody wiped except me cuz I have self res. I said now all the burdens are on me w slow bullet regen IB then the guy hiding in the other side said some shit like lemme check your grimmoire score, wtf are you playing Destiny when you don't shoot...I was so mad and wanted to leave but I kept my cool and we still failed cuz idk the totems went red. Then my friend joined me and we cheese it easily me and him w one guy cross the bridge.

I think its either really rare or they patched it so the cryptarch doesnt give shaders anymore. Whenever i level him up all i get is engrams, blue mostly, sometimes a legendary. But i never get shaders from him.

 

In other news, i knew i didnt do the first half of the raid with my hunter and i kind of wanted to see if i could get another chest piece. So clearing the lamps was simple. But hunters jumping to the other side of the bridge in the second area seemed impossible. But i tried anyway, and the first try with the normal jump was instant death. But i remember Jimmy saying if you use blink you can get across, so i tried blink and made it on my first try. All i did was the usual, but after my initial jump i kept hitting R1+X as fast as i could. This kept me blinking and swinging, and i made it over there pretty easy. Killed both ogres and got a chest piece for my troubles. ;)

Yeah, in order to snipe from the original side one person HAS to cross (legit or cheese), and then the thralls have to be despawned on the original side (always cheesed).

 

Gotta love fail-groups.

Like everything with this game it's just rng. Don't you have God Of War? Didn't you get that from a Cryptarch package? That video I posted was from a little over a month ago. I highly doubt they ninja patched his packages to stop them from giving out shaders. Pretty sure there's one other shader (Other than GoW) that you and Ig both got from one of his packages that I didn't get as well. (I remember it being like arctic proxy but a different color.)

So, for whatever reason I decided to give Iron Banner a go this week :roll: .

 

Not doing too bad actually, in 3 nights worth of IB.  Hit Rank 3 last night.  Even had (I think) a 33 kill match.

 

At this point, I just want to hit 4 so I can buy the mark.  At least I wrapped up a Bad Juju bounty in the process.

While the team was coming out from the portal @ Atheon I just stayed in the platform and killed him (health was pretty low, so why not). Next thing I see is a yellow square with a golden white rocket launcher in it...mother bleeping GHorn :bow: (also my Titan, who is my primary character got it)

 

So now I have every exotic gun and armor in the game :D/  

Congrats man  :beer: .

Glad you got one, especially with the way Gjally's were dropping these last two weeks.

 

Now when you go to raid and they ask if you have a Gjally, you can say... Yes  (and if you're like me, you can also say... go Fuck  yourself!  You don't need Gjally to beat the raid, loser)

 

Also is there a reason why my black hammer doesn't have the yellow square around it? It's fully upgraded and everything. 

White Nail wasn't playing nice with Hive Disruptor, causing you to lose ammo.

Bungie disabled Hive Disruptor (pretty sure this was the problem perk) until they can figure out a fix, which means BH won't get the gold trim until they re-enable that perk.

 

Yeah, in order to snipe from the original side one person HAS to cross (legit or cheese), and then the thralls have to be despawned on the original side (always cheesed).

 

Gotta love fail-groups.

This.

You need at least one person on the other side and no one "alive" on the original side.

You decide how to make everyone on the original side not "alive" ;)

I'm sure most of you have already seen this back in the day but I just stumbled upon this gameplay reveal trailer from 2013 and it has made me incredibly depressed.

 

 

That.. just..wow I don't even know what to say. A Warlock with a knife throwing Solar grenades and Nova bombing? (Plus the Nova Bomb is so quick.) Legendaries and Exotics pre-level 20? Bosses dropping exotics mid-level? Dropping in where ever? The HUD/Inventory/Weapon Perk screen and just everything else looked so much better then than it does now. Not that it looks terrible now it just looked so much better then. I understand compromises had to be made due to last gen but it seems like they changed almost everything. If anything, this has me really looking forward to Destiny 2 just so long as we've finally moved on from last gen at that point.

I rerolled my iron banner scout rifle and got firefly, explosive rounds, and rodeo. Also rerolled the machine gun and got Field Scout, Crowd Control, and a perk that gives the gun increased stability, so im happy with both those. Cant wait to level up that scout rifle. :D

 

Arjay, i couldnt really tell you if i got God of War from cryptarch or vanguard. But i cant even remember getting any shader from the cryptarch within the last month or so.

Well it looks like I managed to do a full week without clearing the first half of VoG on hard lol. Every single time I tried to go through Templar my groups disbanded right before. To be fair, those runs were always an afterthought post-CE or post-IB grinding, and were at ridiculously late hours.

 

Still, I find it funny.

 

As always, I will be saving the Exotic chest over the reset on PS3. Send me a msg or join on me if you see me in there. Chances are I'm just cycling folks in :)

I love Iron Banner. Only had to play a few hours on Sunday and a few yesterday to rank up from 1-4 and then earn the glimmer I needed for chest and leg armor. Now, once I level those pieces, I'll finally be a 32!

I got god of war in vanguard packages before I stared leveling a faction both times I got it...if that helps.

 

Ended up getting two hard crota kills last night finally...one LFG one with my peoples. The one with my people was a 5 man and hella smooth compared to lfg despite it being like 1am and the sword bearer smoking substances (probably calms him down lol). I think maybe 5 with one or two gjally is smoother than a full team due to less chance of a random death...

 

So still no Crux or exotics womp womp...

I got so lucky getting my scout came with firefly, explosive rounds and final round so I didn't have to reforge it, on my Jolder's hammer did't got so lucky I got perfect balance, range finder and crowd control and finally with the auto rifle I had ro reforge it 10 times just to get third eye, perfect balance and high caliber rounds.

I spent 200+ motes reforging weapons this week.

 

3 machine guns, (arc + hip fire + surplus + field scout), (void + counter balance + field scout + crowd control), (solar + rodeo + field scout + crowd control).

 

1 shotgun with (solar + grenadier + hammer forged + shot package)

 

1 scout rifle with (rodeo + explosive rounds + firefly)

 

Still have 100+ motes left, I'm pretty happy with this Iron Banner.

Yeah it was insane how well we did during this IB. Though yesterday night once we reached 5 performance sank immediately,  at least on my end  it did  :-

Nightfall x 3 = Arachnid (have it), Monte Carlo (lol, yes again this week), and 9 strange coins.

 

Did it 4 times in a row, its super fast and easy if you have arc weapons and 3 people.

Brought people in for the Gorgon chest last night, only two exotics dropped for the six of us:

 

Red Death for myself (my 2nd)

....and another Red Death for someone else. Not from the same chest, mind you...but odd just the same.

 

3x Nightfalls: Bupkiiss (coins/leg. RL/shards)

 

from Normal CE, however:

 

1st run: Dragon's Breath from Ir Yut

2nd run: Nadda

3rd run: Boots + Helm (last two i needed on my Hunter), and my 2nd Gjallarhorn from Ir Yut.

 

Another week with no Swordbreaker or Fusion rifle....durnit.

3x NF loots Glasshouse, legendary hand canon and legendary fusion rifle. Got invited to CE HM cp but the game was glitchy as fuck sword disappeared, Crota didn't crouch when shield down, couldn't finish it and we called it a day.

No Land Beyond, last Monday for coming in last on winning team in Iron Banner

G demise scout rifle, drop from IB

Felwinters lie, drop from IB w/ crappy roll and ran out of motes.

saw 2x GD and 1x FL drop in 1 IB win match, so exited but them realized I didn't get anything from that win.

 

2x NF, legendary engram (sharded shotgun) and 4th horseman exotic SG (2 exotics dropped for the 3 of us in 1 NF)

 

both NLB and 4th Horseman (thing has no range what so ever) are still in my mail. 

 

Either worth taking out a playing with over the IB weps?

Nightfall i got Obsidian Mind, Warlock Skull helmet, and some legendary fusion rifle. I also got an ice breaker, Vex Mythoclast, and hard light from doing crota/atheon. Also seen jimmy get the monte carlo, when i was just helping him and mars out in the nightfall for nothing since i did it solo earlier in the day. :wall:

 

 

2x NF, legendary engram (sharded shotgun) and 4th horseman exotic SG (2 exotics dropped for the 3 of us in 1 NF)

Not really, i tried using no land beyond but you are way better off using any other sniper in the game. 4th horseman can be good i guess, it does have full auto. But hardly no range and im pretty sure most people have a felwinters lie or found verdict which have lots of range.

Picked up Bloodborne today and put most of my gaming time for the day into it. I wasn't going to play Destiny at all until I saw that the Walking Tall bounty was up today and decided to do my Nightfalls and Weeklies. I ended up getting coins, a decent machine gun, and NLB from my Nightfalls. I don't know that I am going to play much more Destiny this week. I would love to get Monte Carlo and 4th Horseman to finish off my exotic collection, but I really don't feel like raiding for such a small shot at them. The only other things I have to raid for are the fusion rifle from normal Crota and the chance to upgrade a few pieces of armor. It's just not enough motivation at this point. If I can get the Gorgon checkpoint I'll do that and I might do a few bounties to casually work on leveling all of the factions close to a rank up before HoW drops.

 

Bloodborne has been awesome so far, so it will probably get most of my gaming time for now. I also have The Show preordered and I am thinking about picking up Borderlands and FF Type 0 soon as well. Destiny probably won't be getting too much of my time until HoW.

Got a bunch of NADA from  NF x 2, ir yut x 2 and CE NM x 2... my luck went really downhill since I got the Ghorn, and like jhill I really don't have that much motivation now just to get the montecarlo and the 4th horseman (we are missing the same guns!!!) I think I got burnt yesterday while doing CE HM our sword carrier for some mysterious reason kept dying in crota's last sit we even changed sword carrier and it was even worst he kept dying in the first part... after several attempts I decided to pick up the sword just to die in the very last sit too.

I've done HM CE 3x weekly since the launch of HM and still don't have a Crux. Why the hell isn't it dropping? I have every exotic in the game other than the Necrochasm. This is getting ridiculous.

Hit up the gorgon chest 3x's and got Suros. (thanks to porkchop).

Then got my 3 Atheon kills for ships, sparrows and mats... blegh.

 

Did one quick, full run of Crota on normal. Ended up with a full armor set (arms, boots, chest and helmet) and Hunger of Crota... no black hammer, no exotic.

 

Wrapped up with one Weekly strike for nothing special.

 

I know they can't all be Gjallarhorn weeks, but is it too much to ask for another Black Hammer???

Cleaning out my postmaster slots revealed another Word of Crota, so that puts me around 10 for just that one gun (Hunger is now around 7 for me).

 

I still have some gear that could be leveled up, but not much desire to do so.

I may finally pick up GTA V for Heists alone, if there's still a decent online community.  We'll see...

Dunno about CAG community, but the people I usually run raids with also play GTA and the lobbies are always full. That said it's not wise to depend on random lobbies for heists. You'll want a solid group to play with.

I was thinking the same that I'd want to run with current friends/groups.  My only issue is that some of my consistent groups are on PS3 and I'm still building up on the PS4 side.

I have every exotic in the game but the monte carlo. This game just loves to troll. You want a certain gun, here have a different exotic, and ill give the gun you want to someone you are playing with. muhuhahahaha!
