Has anybody ewho has played this morning have you had any connection issues? I have been kicked off at least 4 times today even once on the final PoE boss at level 32 which really sucked.

Most of the time when I get booted it's just back to orbit. Is that a problem on my end or more with Destinys servers? Some of the codes I remember are beetle and anteater if that helps.

Finally did some PoE runs last night.  Did the base level 28 on my Titan and Hunter and then did the 32 with my Hunter.  Obviously the 28 was very easy.  The 32 was not too bad.  We had some wipes on one of the levels where you had to dismantle mines that were on opposite corners of the map and the Hive level that had the Lightswitch modifier was a bit of a pain until we found a good place to shore up our defensive position.  The boss wave was the Cabal guy and we just went far left and camped there.  It was hectic at times, but we finished the final boss after only wiping once. 

 

My total haul included Queen's Assault Rifle, Sniper and Fusion Rifle.  My exotics were Ice Breaker (which I didn't even realize I got until I saw it on DIM this morning) and Dragon's Breath.  This week I have pulled 4 exotics and 3 of them have been Dragon's breath.  The game is definitely trolling me with that.

 

I have to say that I am not sure I like how they have setup the loot drops for the PoE.  I do not like the fact that you have to grind for keys just to open the big chest at the end.  Feel like the final boss should award a key for the first clear of the week on each character at the very least.  Are these Queens weapons even worth it?  They don't seem any different than the standard Legendaries you can buy from the vendors now that you can reforge everything.  I guess you get a shot at an exotic, but wish they at least limited that to the new ones.

I totally agree, I was under the assumption that the first time you beat the Level 32 PoE each reset would reward you with a single key.

 

From what I have gathered all the Queen's stuff is just 'eh' anyway. The rocket launcher is okay that I got and I think I have the Auto as well. I at first thought the hand cannon was pretty solid until I got Up the Ante shortly after and saw it had overall way better stats.

 

And I looked all over online and there is no mention of it yet. The House of Judgement weapons are all the base levels that we get from PoE and the fallen vendor, but online they have data mined those same weapons with the same names except the second (II) and they have elemental damage.

 

Also looking into it, the Trials of Osiris Assault Rifle and Scout Rifle look absolutely PERFECT for PvP weapons, for me at least. Overall they seem like they would do well in PvE as well. Since coming back after this handcannon debuff and just general weapon tweaking I do not enjoy using the weapons I used to in the Crucible and have been trying out a bunch to find the right one... with no luck. Sucks the ones I want to get need to be acquired through PvP itself haha

Thunderlord
Wolve's Bane (MG)
Her Benevolence x2 (Sniper)


These Queen's weapons seem like they are pretty common. I have two of each. I re-rolled the two Wolve's Bane for better perks but I'm not sure they are any better than the two Jolder's Hammers I already have. Same with the Her Benevolence vs. Efrideet's Spear. Heh - I also got Thunderlord from my first PoE chest on Tuesday.

Vendetta and I and another friend went through on our second characters last night doing story, 28 PoE, 32, and 34. Then that other friend had someone join our party. He had been trying to take some people through the level 35 but they couldn't get past the boss.

GOOD NEWS - you CAN join a PoE event! The players in the game just have to be dead when you join. So send an invite, then quickly wipe. Both of those guys joined in for the final boss, Skolas, on level 35. I was just listening while I did some inventory management. I had to make some hard choices like getting rid of alternate rocket launchers and some extra Atheon's Epilogues. I may have to break down my 4th Gjallarhorn eventually. This Queen's stuff is just taking up so much room (I also have a hand cannon, shotgun, and maybe an auto rifle). I haven't even picked up the weapon from Veriks. I might just hold on to my weapon cores for next week or to use for Judgement's Chances (where you trade one weapon and armor core for a random package).

Anyway, it sounded like they got really close but eventually the original guy had to leave. So the guys wanted me to join in. I had to get my Warlock to level 34 with the two etheric light I had (one from level 34 PoE on my Warlock, the other from level 34 PoE on my Titan). Unforunately I only ever got crap rolls on the Crota gear for my Warlock. So I went with the Iron Banner chest and Crota boots. Using the helm that gives faster teammate spawn plus the Veriks gloves, which are both pure strength rolls, my stats are very low on Int, medium on Disc, and near 100% on Str - those totally suck, but it was the best way to get to 34.

Though now I kind of wish I had gotten my Titan to 34. We nearly beat Skolas one time. We had him to a sliver of health but the other two were dead and I'm not sure even if I had killed him that I could have handled all the mines (which you still have to do after beating him). But the strat was to go to the left and kill the Servitor than G-horn that crap out of Skolas. We got lucky on that one run and he didn't rush us so quickly. I fired 14 G-horn rounds at him. After each wipe, we would wait in the airlock to get our heavy synth to regen. So it is kind of a pain because it means waiting 6-10 minutes between attempts. We maybe could have done it with a Titan though using Weapons of Light. Having my Warlock at 34 is nice for most of PoE for the revive but it didn't come in all that handy at Skolas because usually by that time it was too late.

Anyway, we were also trying to do this at 5am so we were pretty wiped out.

I had gotten an extra key during out story mission but I blew that and my one from the Story mode on the level 32 and 34 chests. I got pretty much a load of crap. No exotics - just the second Wolves' Bane and Her Judgment. I did get an exotic when I ran my Titan through the 28 the day before though (when we tagged along with someone else who had completed the story). So it does seem like 1 exotic is guaranteed on your first key. But it is going to be Universal Remote or Dragon's Breath or No Land Beyond or some crap like that ;).
 

Anyone care to do Crotas End with me? I need all the help I can get lol.


Vendetta and I still have some normal Crota clears to finish so maybe you can tag along if we have room. We're just at the last two parts but you can pretty much just hang out in the back and get free loot if you aren't familiar with it ;).

Had my first foray into PoE (level 28) last night and got another Red Death and a Wolf's Bane.  Not bad, but nothing I got too excited about.  i want to move onto the level 32 arena, but I'm worried no one here will still need it by Friday night.  What do you say?  Anyone still need it or otherwise willing to join me?

^ Krashhole, have you played through the new story content and run the level 28 Prison of Elders yet? I'd do that before attempting the 32 level one. I know someone can bring you into the level 28, but I don't think they can bring you to the 32 if you haven't done Story and 28 yet. The level 28 has matchmaking.

I'll run the 32 with you. That one isn't too bad and shouldn't take too long to run through. Now 34 is a different matter ;).

I do still have a third character to run all the way through Story mode and 28/32 as well though. I kind of feel like I need to take a break from all the intense PoE (34/35) and just do some regular bounties and maybe key farming. That is "casual" play compared to the intensity of the Uxxor or Skolas fights.

Also with the new versions of the older exotics with the old max damage of 33? will you need two exotic lights from Xur or just one to max it out?

I think you will only need one but I'm not 100% sure. I've broken down all the new ones I got since I already had the older versions maxed. Though maybe I shouldn't have done that with the Universal Remote I got since I never maxed my older one. I didn't even occur to me that it would be different so I didn't even look at the perks at the time.

In any case, I'm drowning in exotic shards from all the crap I've gotten. I ascended pretty much everything I want to and still have 28 shards left over. I think I need to do a few Vex Mythoclasts and maybe a bit of my Hunter gear, but I still don't have a use for my 100+ strange coins ;). I think I've only ever bought one exotic shard from Xur and that was the first week of The Dark Below.

I really, really wish Xur would sell Treasure Keys for like 10 or even 20 coins. That would be awesome and would reward all my hours of gameplay from before by saving me from mind-numbing farming now. In other words it would be a great way for Bungie to reward dedicated players - which means 100% it won't happen...

I love doing the wolves hunt ont he ember caves I can pretty much guarantee I get two runs at the chest each time. Only problem is I have so many special ammo synths I need to make another character just to pack mule them for me.

Also re-rolling the new items is pretty addicting. Also it seems you no longer get shards/energys for playing the public events other than maybe in the daily reward.

I have over 300+ hours in this game but without running the raids and nightfall on a weekly basis I feel like my character is so underwhelming compared to the rest of yours. I find it unbelievable that you could have 28 exotic shards and that many strange coins.

I had over 40 before I started ascending stuff. Let me look at the app to see my strange coin total... 175 on my Titan, 152 on my Warlock, and 148 on my Hunter. So, yeah, I have even more than I thought: 475.

I have had nothing to spend them on. I used to buy heavy synths with them and perhaps I will again since I used so many on the PoE the last two days. But then you get them now while key farming too. I have all the exotics as well - though maybe he'll have something new tonight that I can spend a whopping 14-23 coins on.

The trick on key farming is to fill up your inventory so that you don't get more special ammo synths. I'm having a real inventory management problem right now because all my characters and my Vault are full on the consumables. The key will go to the postmaster if you keep your inventory full but the ammo synths won't.

Also, the place to farm for keys is Skywatch - the area is really small and if the chest spawns behind the fence near the entrance you can hit it 3 times easily and 4 times if you time it right. You can usually get to it 3 times if it shows up in the other spots as well (though perhaps not at the top of the building - but you can still get that one twice).

Yeah, since the new armor pieces don't require shards and the weapons don't require energy it seems that the Daily Event packages now give you motes and coins for the most part. Though I did 3 in a row yesterday that gave me relic iron and spirit bloom. I was like, WTF!? I have way too much of all that stuff and will probably have to start deleting the multiple stacks (they max at 200 per stack). Again, since you don't need nearly as much of that for the new gear I don't see the point of holding any more.

Why they decided to give out planetary materials plus the special synths with the key farming chests is beyond me - none of that is necessary. The heavy synths are nice since you will go through a lot of those in PoE.

New exotics, aka ones with the new damage levels, should only need 1 exotic shard. 

Haven't done it yet, but I am sitting on a new Invective that starts out at 334.  I'll need to unlock all the other nodes, but I expect that I'll need to use a shard to hit the final max of 365.

 

And Yeah, treasure keys are the new "IT" item so of course they're gonna make us grind.  But I like your idea :)

Plenty of people will still do it I bet since you can still get the big chest.

 

 

 

Also after a bit of research my FAQ is a bit incorrect.

 

-The Fallen Themed Arena Weapons will by default have kinetic damage.  Only when you get them via a drop from the level 35.  I do believe you also can get them via a Judgement Chance from Variks (buy with 1 weapon and 1 armor core). 

 

 

 

 

Got my Hunter to level 34 last night :D :D :D :D :D   io and I are going to have a go at the level 35 after I get a damn key.  I did finally get Her Benevolence (Queen's Sniper) last night so I was happy with that.  No new exotics yet.  People seem to be in awe of my Hunter helm though.  Also one of my friends snagged the exotic Ram Helm for the Warlock :hot:

Since I had like 50+ motes and only had enough strange coins for a few exotic shards I bought two from him to break down. I got a new Hunter and Titan one (I am a Warlock) but I forgot the names already. Even Xur trolls me in this damn game.

So I keep getting network errors so I hard wired my xb1 directly to my modem yesterday afternoon and that still didn't help. I did a hard reset this morning and was able to play for like 15 minutes and got booted back to orbit with a ferrit error code. I have opened my NAT again and I an uninstalling and reinstalling the game to see if that helps at all.

I am scared to try to buy them. Bummed that he doesn't have anything new but I had a feeling that might happen to pad out the length of players sticking with the new HoW.

 

Also... waking up today was a bear.Two nights in a row I was kept awake super late playing with Linkin and my other friend Hooptie. I was literally going to bed last night at an already late time when i was guilted to stay on longer and play through the 32 PoE. My bloodshot eyes and groggy disposition are proof of that this morning! : P

No yeah he isn't a CAG, just an obnoxious buddy of mine : P

 

Oh and I forgot to mention I scored new exotics last night for my Titan!!!! But they were the new legs that do more shoulder charge damage in air... As I ranted when I got them, why did they even both making Exotic leg armor? You can only put on one Exotic and all other exotics have two unique perks whereas legs only have one. I do not see why I would ever wear those unless they are like one hit kills with midair charge in PvP maybe.

I have to run the Level 32 on 2 more characters so I can run it with you.  I finished it on my Hunter but used the armor core to get my Warlock to 33 in order to make my Level 32 run a bit easier on that character.  Figured once I get all 3 characters to 33 I'll worry about the Level 34 PoE. 

 

I am enjoying the expansion so far, but the loot system they have implemented is a step backwards IMHO.  The fact that you have to farm keys just to get the PoE rewards is complete bullshit.  People complained about the grinding in this game up through TDB and they have made it worse since now you have to farm 9 keys a week if you want to open the chest on PoE on all 3 characters.  I guess the real rewards are the Cores and the Etheric Light you get just for completing the PoE, but you get no chance at new exotics unless you grind for keys.  Comparing this to the other 'endgame activities' you had multiple chances at exotics and weapon drops throughout the raids, and the chance to hold checkpoints which made the grind that much less 'grindy'. Oh well, maybe I'm just bitter that I don't have any keys and I haven't pulled any new exotics... :wall:

I run triple titan so I'm 34 across all 3 characters.

I've dismantled 6 gjallarhorns.

I play very late EST when I am able.  Occasionally on during the day if I'm able to.

Noob friendly, I have no problem showing people the raids, etc.  I'm pretty patient with people.

Fatebringer is ridiculous.

 

I'll add everyone later when I get the chance.  I'm always down to do whatever if you see me on, don't be afraid to just send me an invite.

Frigging game is unplayable for me now and I can't figure out why. After numerous hard reboots of my xb1 and the modem I couldn't even go from orbit to the planet without getting a error.

1. My connection is hard wired and not dropping and fast 60/65 constant.

2. My NAT is in the open position.

3. Uninstalled and reinstalled the game.

4. Did hard reboots on bot devices.


The last three codes I have received have been anteater, ferret, and weasel.

Any hints on what could be up?

I have been having connection problems for about a week since the patch came out.  Not as bad as what you are describing, but I have had periods where I couldn't log back onto the game without rebooting everything.  I usually reboot my modem, router and switch and it clears up for me in a few minutes. 

 

I had some issues with my ISP about a year ago and after calling them a number of times they replaced my modem with a newer model and that cleared up the problems I was having (getting kicked from games, netflix streaming cutting out, etc).  It might be a good idea to call the ISP and explain the problems you are having, surprisingly sometimes the reps you get there actually have a clue of how to fix things or at least have helped someone having similar issues in your area.

Got my Hunter to level 34 last night :D :D :D :D :D   io and I are going to have a go at the level 35 after I get a damn key.


So we started this around 4:30 or so Friday morning (because of Xur at 2am and then needing to run another friend through the 34 so he could get his Titan to level 34 for the 35 PoE). The good news is that the Level 34 was much easier with 2 34's and a 33. So getting that one etheric light per character per week shouldn't be too hard once everyone is 34.

The bad news is that while we did most of the level 35 pretty quickly and without too much trouble, the stupid boss was taking us two+ hours. All the videos you watch make it look oh so simple. But if you watch them closely there are times when they almost die and they also get lucky with the boss staying put for the most part. He kept teleporting on to us, etc... And you have to wait 5-10 minutes between runs to use a heavy ammo synth and then wait for the cooldown on a second (since you have to unload all your rockets and them use a synth and fire more) so it gets really tedious.

It was approaching 7:30 AM and the wife and kids were up for school and I just couldn't do it any more. The other guys said they were done as well so I quit out. But then apparently our other friend wanted to give it one more try with one of his friends and they cleared it the very next try. Hearing that made me feel like utter shit and I considered deleting the game today. But no - there I was playing all evening again. I didn't get to do another run at 35 (I won't be able to relax till I clear it) but I got to listen to other people get all the Trials of Osiris gear that I will never get close to.

It just sort of feels like a punch to the gut that there is all this content I am essentially locked out of when I put so much time into this game. At least with the Raids it is just a matter of learning the mechanics and practicing. I'll never be an elite PvP player though.

So both the PvE and PvP were big letdowns for me in the last 24 hours. Not only did I not clear that damn thing, I got in trouble with the family for having stayed up all night to play. I'm seriously in the doghouse now at home ;). I also blew off a day of work to sleep in - that cost me real money. Now I almost Fuck ing wish Destiny had microtransactions so you could buy the gear that people are getting from these activities.

So yeah all in all a pretty depressing day. Bleah...

I did get the Ram helm from an engram but I did about 15 of them and didn't get the other two new helmets (though I did get 3 Rams - go figure). Just more par for the course.

So, io, I know the feeling about being essentially locked out of content.  I am even less of a PvP player than you, but I don't let it bother me so much.  People get will get some fancy armor and weapons, but there's enough variety at this point where I don't feel like my guardians are wearing second-hand clothes.  And the way this game treats me, even if i was playing ToO and IB religiously, there's no guarantee I'd get the items I want most.  In over 700 hours of PoE, there are some exotics that just won't drop (like a certain rocket launcher that shall not be named) and I've only ever gotten one helmet out of VoG.  

 

My guardians are pretty well equipped and I have fun.  If I get invited to play Trials with some seasoned players, that could be fun too, but I'm not going to worry too much about the stuff I'm missing out on.  

 

But anyway...thanks for slinking out of the doghouse last night to run PoE with Drunkz and me.  I appreciate you guys helping me get a character to level 33.
