Got a 32 PoE done on my titan and I'm now officially level 33 . But have no more keys
(EDIT: d'oh, forgot I also pulled Techeun Force from this run)
Hopped in with some other friends to do fresh story runs on our alt toons. Once done, a buddy switch back to his main in order to take us into PoE at 32 but got rejected since my toon and the other guy's toon hadn't done 28 yet.
So, did a 28 run. I pulled an exotic shard (formerly Hardlight) and Her Right Hand (perks of Crowd Control & Glass Half Full).
Still have my hunter to run thru HoW story and it's virgin PoE run.
Then got to see about getting normal Crota done, 2 more NF's, all 3 Heroics. Plus find time to get the daily crucible match in and do all the remaining HoW bounties. Oh... and gotta farm more keys for PoE (that's gonna be fun, ugh)
I was able to join a buddy for a 28 PoE on my lock, who hasn't even done the first story mission, and they had already completed PoE earlier that day. So IDK what was up.
I think the key point is that your buddy did have access to PoE and he was only pulling you into a 28 level run. So in that respect it's fine since you weren't trying to get into 32, like when you tried to take my 'lock in.
Your 'lock should now be able to go into a 32 PoE run since 28 was already completed on it, even though the story hasn't been done on it. But I would guess that you can't be fireteam lead to initiate PoE; someone who's done the story would have to be lead.
I want to do more PoE, but still have 2 more story runs to go. So from what I'm hearing the chest does have an exotic, but that is attached to the weekly reset, so only 3 tries for exotics from that chest correct?
Got the Queen's Rocket, so far so good. It is no GHorn, but it does a ton of damage.
Not sure yet... you're guaranteed an exotic from it but still not clear (to me) if the exotic is tied to weekly reset.
The confusion for me comes from being able to loot the 28 chest as many times as you want, as long as you have a key to open it. That makes it seem like all loot is available from the 28 chest (loot table) as long as you have a key.
EDIT: so I found this on Planet Destiny
IGN was able to get confirmation from Bungie that the chests – even the chest that requires a Treasure Key to open, isn’t on a reset.
If you have keys, you can beat it and access the rewards in the chests. So there is no weekly lockout or anything on the chests.
Acquiring the loot from the big chest is only limited by the Treasure Key – and you’re able to carry 5 in your inventory, so you have 5+ chances at loot each week – or even each day, depending on how dedicated you are!
So what is the weekly reset for?”
Even though the chests aren’t on a reset, the guaranteed rewards are. The Armor Cores, Weapon Cores, & Etheric Light will drop per once per week, per character, the first time you complete that difficulty each week.
