during IB last night I saw something I never ever thought I would see

 

'Azazael13 is a Phantom'

 

Wasn't sniping, no super involved, had a HMG for the last 2 kills of it.

 

I had no clue I was even close to getting it, which is good because I am sure I would have gotten insidie my head and choked.  I died promptly after getting it, mostly because I had to go and save the video clip. 

 

I have been pleasently surprised by the way people are taking this IB.  I expected a lot of camping and no fighting, but every game I have had most of the team is moving together and fighting.

I got that medal during a trials match and had no idea what it was, never had one so it was really cool getting it!

Lucky you, I've seen a lot of camping in this IB whole teams camping small areas of a map (thanks god for HoS with explosive pire).

Apparently the rank 5 IB package gives a 310-320 ghost shell plus a random IB item at 310-320.

Really cos all i got was a 310 ghost shell that looked like it took 1 minute to design. I dont think i got anything besides that.

 

Here is a video i made of my awesome red bar iron banner of lag.

Haha, damn RNGeezy.  Did another hard KF run and got sharded on the entire way except for a 317 shotty.  But that's only useful for pushing my Black Spindle up to 317 (not that it really needs it, been doing plenty damage at 315).  What I really need is a helmet for my titan :wall:

Its this BS that makes me want to say,  Fuck  Bungie.  Star Wars and Halo are looking better and better.

 

Cranked my hunter up to rank 3 in IB and I got my first armor drop (chest at 300) and the R3 package DID give me a 310 artifact, but it was a blue.  Anyone get one like that or did I just get the poop-end of the stick.

 

BTW, there was no indicator that I had an IB package.  I just went to ol' Saladhead and the package popped up when I talked to him so... remember to talk to him as soon as you hit rank 3 (guessing the same goes for hitting rank 5)

- Mida Multi-Tool

- Plan C

- Dragon's Breath

- The Armamentarium

- Nothing Manacles

 

I think we all knew something like this was coming at some point.

Haha 7 are you always lagging? That shit was annoying so I payed for an upgrade in speed and it's been a lot better now. You'll never get rid of the lag but you will notice a huge difference. I don't know how you enjoy playing. With lag the game is unreal. That's why I never game with my Australian friends anymore. Playing with them causes so much lag for me if they host and vice versa.

Everyone got a 310 blue artifact from the rank 3 package. But even if yours was blue and everyone else got purple, it wouldn't really matter since it's still 310.

Yeah, same here.  I don't understand why they did this except I guess as a way for people to get a 310 artifact without doing the (super easy, at this point) Normal Raid. I hear the Rank 5 package can give out a 310+ item though.  I ought to hit that tonight on my Warlock, then I can quick level my other two characters tomorrow hopefully.

 

I dont think I have a primary over 310 either...I just keep getting the crappy pistol from oryx and not even the black version.

Yeah no kidding.  HM KF is really screwing me over on primaries and helmets.  I've gotten one helmet (at 306) total over all my Normal and hard runs.  I've done hard mode all the way through at least 8 times now.  But worse than that, I've only gotten one 310+ primary from all those completions.  At least that was a 319 Scout so that was nice.  But I'd like to get a few more so I can level stuff like Red Death and Touch of Malice, not to mention a bunch of legendary weapons (Grasp of Malok for example), above 310.

 

Crota's End was much more generous with the hard mode weapons and this one should be the same given that you have to play the light level RNG/infusion game as well.  All the duplicate Crota weapons just got crushed.  Now that there's actually a use for duplicates I can't even get singles of most stuff.

This method sucks since the purples usually have more/better perks compared to the blues.  So, now I'm left with infusing this blue into a good purple and in-turn lose some light levels in the process.  Basically devalues one of the rewards people want from IB.

 

 

In the end it just means I'll have to do the quests to get the GOOD 310 artifact for my other toons (but I really didn't want too... ugh)

The blue artifact I have has the same perk and better stats than my purple. Purple isn't always better than blue.

Nice to see the mida getting a y2 version. Also hope they add a perk to dragons breath to make it worth using, like maybe tracking. Nothing Manacles will have me using void walker again in pvp.

Yeah, its not always bad but id say more times than not its laggy. I really do need better internet. Trials isnt that bad usually. But iron banner really brings out the lag for me.

 

I double checked on my rank 5 packages. All 3 got 310 ghosts. Two also got the IB rocket launcher, one with tracking. My other character got a pretty nice fusion rifle with really good stability, impact, and it was 315.

Man, I was really hoping to get halfway through rank 3 today so I could just turn in these weeklies and be done with it. I'm so sick of getting sniped on every single map.

 

I'm fully convinced that Bungie is trying to make a game that's just 100% catered toward people who camp with sniper rifles. The weapon updates prove my theory is correct.

That's exactly where this is going (and it's ridiculous)... It'll be funny when the game hits the point when both teams camp at their spawn trying to snipers.

The blue artifact I have has the same perk and better stats than my purple. Purple isn't always better than blue.

Yep.  My blue was pretty much exactly the same as one of the purples I got from a Trials gold tier package (and by the way, Fuck that!).  Most items have more perk slots when they are legendary vs. rare but the artifact is not that way.  These two have the exact same perk in fact.

 

I double checked on my rank 5 packages. All 3 got 310 ghosts. Two also got the IB rocket launcher, one with tracking. My other character got a pretty nice fusion rifle with really good stability, impact, and it was 315.

I got rank 5 on my Warlock and in addition to the 310 ghost shell I got a 319 Rocket Launcher!  It doesn't have great perks, but considering that the HM Raid has never given me a heavy weapon that high I'll take it.

 

And then I was playing on my Titan afterwards to get him up to rank 5 and I got a 318 ghost shell as a regular match reward.  That is insane as that is 4 better than anything the Raid has given me.  I'm so glad I played IB this week.  And I still have rank 5 to hit on my Titan and Hunter.  Please, please, please game give me a helmet over 310 - I have yet to get one of those from the Raid and since IB is blessing me with stuff the Raid won't, maybe my luck will continue tomorrow ;).  I swear I saw a Titan wearing the IB helm and since that hasn't been available yet I assume it came from a rank 5 package like that rocket launcher I got.

What exactly changed to make sniping so common now?  I barely ever remember getting sniped in Iron Banner a few months back.  Now it is constant.  I blame Trials for it since that is what everyone does there (and did even in the last iteration).  The shotgun nerf isn't enough on its own to cause this.  I can still wreck people with Conspiracy Theory on certain maps (where I'm not getting sniped from 3 directions).

IDK...I think irene with luck in the chamber has brought out the final round club again...why am I awake?

 

Anyone want to do trials? We had 5 so when we split up last night I ended up not doing trials and instead somehow got roped into a useless normal mode raid. That shit is comically easy compared to the real thing at this point...people can screw up so much and you can still win. I was helping a buddy do it all the way through for the first time and he seemed so confused by everything.

Fusion rifles are completely shit. Shotguns will be completely shit if Bungie has their way. 1000 yard stare with the right roll makes it so easy to snipe. Then Eirene with LITC makes it easy to snipe for people who can hit headshots. But even that's getting nerfed with the next update.

The problem is, Bungie listens to the vocal minority too much and puts too much weight on their opinions. So Triplewreck says "I'm going to stop playing Destiny because I don't like Final Round snipers!" and Bungie changes it. Then the same thing happens with LITC, and now that's gone. Meanwhile the whole time there's complaining about shotguns, so Bungie is changing those. Then the rest of us who hate getting sniped and like that shotguns are a viable secondary weapon are fucked and have to learn to snipe if we want to compete.

But listen guys, Triplewreck wants us to use scout rifles and 1000 yard stare, so we better just start getting comfortable with those now since Bungie caters to top streamers rather than the majority player base.

Same thing for PVE is kinggothalion. Anything that dude has ever complained about has been changed by Bungie in a patch within a month or two.

I think youre exaggerating a bit. They are hitting shotguns too hard which I agree on. But litc snipers needed a fix badly. It enabled people who can't get a kill to have a lucky chance at a free bullshit kill.

If bungie did always listen to the community and top streamers then sunbreaker would of been nerfed awhile ago. Still waiting on their defense to be brought down 5 percent while in super.

The current situation of weapon balances (nerfs) is getting out of control, you can see what people whine about and you'd have an idea of what will be nerfed next... I'm just waiting to see how severely will the Titans be hit with the next update, if they do it right they'll just reduce the armor and if they follow the vocal minority (they usually do) they'll reduce armor, reduce super time and possibly remove cauterize.

Bungie has never changed a node on the subclass tree through a patch and I don't see them starting to do that. I think cauterize will stay.

Started up my titan for it's first run on IB this week and quickly hit rank 3.  Maybe 1.5-2 hours total time.  Then switched over to my warlock and got up to rank 2.5

 

Also ran my titan thru trials.  Got the gloves and shotty.  Nothing good from the packages though.

Yeah, I'm guessing they'll limit the number of hammers that can be thrown, kinda how golden gun gets limited to 3 shots (4 if you have the exotic).

Exactly. It's ALWAYS worked as intended, so why change it now? Like, what did they expect?

 

Also I'm finding it hilarious how hard Autorifles were nerfed from vanilla, because we "overwhelmingly used them too much", which then turned into "lets keep slowly buffing auto rifles and nerfing everything else".

 

Bungie continues to prove they know Fuck-all about weapon balancing, and just provides swinging flavor-of-the-xpac buffs to a specific weapon.

 

Oh, and while we're on the subject....i want to slap the person who thought it was smart to put "do bonus dmg to ______ enemy" perks on weapons that don't match the element of that _____ enemy. That shit was stupid in House of Wolves, and it's still stupid now.

 

Honestly, like 60% of the perks are garbage anyways.

FYI, I pulled a 320 ghost shell as an IB reward today!  That was pretty awesome.  So that is 6 light better than anything the hard mode Raid ever deemed to give me.

 

This method sucks since the purples usually have more/better perks compared to the blues.  So, now I'm left with infusing this blue into a good purple and in-turn lose some light levels in the process.  Basically devalues one of the rewards people want from IB.

 

 

In the end it just means I'll have to do the quests to get the GOOD 310 artifact for my other toons (but I really didn't want too... ugh)

The artifact I got today on my Hunter is actually considerably better than the legendary I got from that quest.  It has 8 total more stat points than the legendary and a similar (if not exactly the same) perk.  As an added bonus, the rares level up much faster so I was able to max it out really quickly.  I don't have a comparable artifact even at lower levels so I'm just going to use that until I get a better one.

 

On my Titan the 310 one from the quest was pretty bad, too, but the IB one wasn't any better.  So there I made use of the 305 artifact I got from Trials and leveled up my 300 artifact (from Eris way back in the day) to 305 and then to 310 using the IB one.  So now I have a nice Int/Disc, high-stat artifact at 310.  So despite me initially thinking the 310 blue artifacts were useless, I've found a use for both of those so far.

 

So for the rank 5 packages, you get a 310 ghost in each one.  On my first one I also got the IB rocket launcher at 319.  But for my second I didn't get anything extra.  That was somewhat disappointing.  Is the extra drop only a one per account thing, or was it just a totally lucky drop in the first place?  I still have one more character to get to rank 5 so I'll see what happens there - I'm expecting to get nothing besides the ghost.

You were totally lucky on that IB Rocket Launcher drop. I ONLY received the 310 artifact @ rank 3, and 310 ghost @ rank 5, for each of my 3 characters.

 

 

Very jealous :P (though i did get a 320 Ghost Shell as a post-game drop).

From what I understand everybody is supposed to get something extra out of the rank 5 package, but it's apparently glitched for  some people where the second item doesn't show up immediately. Most people have been saying it will pop once you go to orbit, but I've read comments from people saying it didn't pop up for quite a while afterwards for them.
