For being so active the day before it releases, I was hoping for a brief summary of what Seven did today. So is TTK worth it so far? Story wise and longevity of the new content?  

Think he passed out from all the "AMAZING"

Man the daily being 41 seems like BS. We got destroyed by those guys in no time. Also what are people saying about not being able to get as many marks from strikes and what not? Didn't they say we could get as many as we played for?

Just a friendly FYI, but you can only order 1 of the purple Arms day items from the Gunsmith. I have him ranked to level 1, I'm hoping that goes up w/ increased levels.

Do you still get 6 marks for a crucible win, and 4 for a loss?


Doesn't seem that way. I only got the guaranteed 15 legendary marks yesterday for playing the crucible mode of the day, Rift.

I thought that Last Word quest would be tough. You basically have to get kills/streaks with TLW equipped in crucible. I'm terrible with that gun, so I though I'd suck. But then I just got 64% in my first game, so I'm off to a good start.

Fuck off!

 

17% after 2 matches. I, sir, suck with that gun. Of course using it in Rift yesterday just seemed like a bad idea.

Joke from my 5 year old daughter:

 

"Why did the chicken cross the road?" 

 

 

"To find the Hunter and Warlock."

 

 

 

 

Sick Titan burn, kid.

Noticed that Destiny Taken King was $35 TIV this morning at BB. Went home, grabbed my car and off to BB right away and heck yeah $38 back into my pocket. I payed $51 for my copy, using a $48 gift card i got for trading GTA 5 last week and some change  :D/ .

 

 Just looked again and the TIV is now down to $0.25 thank god I didn't wait   :beer:

Got my last 2 toons up to 40 and unlocked their respective sub-class.  Also have all 3 right around 200 light; had the best RNG-ness on my warlock (210 light).

 

One of my purple drops was a Sublime engram, which my friend said is the best kind to get.  So I guess that's a new thing.

 

Oh, our fireteam also got the Taken public events, while on patrol.  And they were actually kinda challenging (we got one with a mini-me crota).  BTW, those taken Captains are bigger Dickensteins than the regular captains; get the Fuck out of here with that vortex attack :bomb:

 

We also did a few VIP kills and they weren't pushovers either.  Caught me by surprise when I went to do the first one.  They were all recommended level 40/light 220, which makes me wonder how tough they'll be once we reach max levels

Man I'm still only on my Titan and manage to get him to 210 somehow, I did get a legendary chest for my Hunter of course. So does anyone think Xur will actually bring something new this week? I feel he will bring only year one stuff  :spam:

Yup you should be good to go. It seems all you download at this point is an "unlock key" that does take a few minutes to get passed the preparing to download phase. Once it gets past that it's instantly done.


A few minutes my @ss! Preparing to download took me at least 15mins with the actual DL taking less than a min. Im guessing its "scanning" the data already installed to determine what you need to DL, but 15mins?! Stupid PS4 -_-. The same thing happened with Witcher 3, but MGS5 patch DL instantly...weird.

Yeah, the xp boost and my bounties really helped a lot.  Still need to play the story past the dreadnaught. , which I want to do tonight

 

And you know Xur will have all new stuff... how else is he gonna troll the NON-TTK players ;)

Strikes are pretty cool now. When you kill the boss, you just see a bunch of engrams drop.

Finished that last word part of the quest. First match I got to 64% and then it took me like 5 more to get the rest. I was averaging a 2+ kd each time. Then the next part makes you buy something from the cryptarch for 15000 glimmer. What a dick that cryptarch is.

Yeah I like the piñata bosses. Played the strike against the two brothers and man was that a blast.

The Sunless Cell strike is super awesome at the end. I also like that bosses don't feel as bulletspongey as they used to.

You must have had a helluva game to get 64% in one match. I had a 16-1 game and only went up 22%. The death penalty on that quest seems way too high. You basically have to average a 2.0+ to make any progress and that's something that a lot of people are never going to be able to do legitimately.

This was the game I had 64% in:

Not sure why it says Rumble, but it was a Control game.

Holy shit. If you haven't played the Paradox mission as part of the Taken War: Venus quest, stop what you're doing and go do it. So awesome.

Yeah how they calculate the % is stupid, I went to 60% in 3 matches (2 controls, 1 clash) on Tuesday night, but yesterday after 4 matches of control and ending with an average of 1.4k/d I went down to 28! Two matches with 2+ k/d put me back at 63% though... I just hope to finish it today.

That one was tough to do solo, but I managed. Langdon jumped in to help with the very last part and we got our legendary marks.

play some crucible they are consistently rewarding legendary armor engrams, also make sure that you are at the highest light level that you can be at the moment of opening the engrams because the light level of your gear/weapons will be higher or lower depending on your current light level.

There's so much to do in TTK that I actually feel a little overwhelmed with Destiny for the first time since it launched. Which is a good thing and it's awesome... I think.  :beer:

Finished the story on my Hunter and my plan was to jump into strikes for better loot.  Of course, I got side-tracked by news of a new loot cave and infinite loot-chest so I gave that a go for a while.

 

Loot cave never really panned out for me and the infinite-loot chest was also sketchy.  I did get enough flakes for Shaxx's sword though.

 

But all that work and I barely scratched 231 light.  Really hope the continuous strikes buff comes through with good gear.
