So I've been playing the last few nights to grab some more ghosts and other grimoire I missed out on all this time. A good portion of the ghosts I hadn't gotten were in Vanilla Destiny (2 in Summoning Pits strike - still have 1 to get there - and 2 in Black Garden).
And I'm still far from getting the Hydra grimoire. That one is ridiculous given how much I've played this game. Also need sidearm kills - no surprise there since I never use them. Unfortunately with the Taken spawning, Hydra farming at the Black Garden gate is kind of spotty. I got 3 in a row, then once the Taken spawned, they never came back, even when I left the area and returned.
The Lighthouse trip pushed me to 4800 and I wanted to try to get over 4900. I'm at 4885 right now. Apparently I just got my last "Crucible Kills as a Hunter" recently as I am at exactly 5000 out of 5000 for that.
What I'm still missing:
-15 pts: 3 Salvage wins for rank 1 (and 5 more Grimoire). Then 25 more for rank 2 and 50 more after that for rank 3 - will probably never hit that.
-15 pts: I only have 2 Rumble wins all time. So I doubt I'll ever get to rank 1, let alone 2 or 3.
-10 pts: Clash playlist. I assume Iron Banner Clash counts here? I only need 6 more for rank 2 (then 50 more for rank 3) so I'll probably get there eventually.
-10 pts: Skirmish playlist. I'm surprised I'm at 26 here, so just over rank 1.
-10 pts: Doubles playlist. I am just at rank 1 (25 wins). I think most, if not all, of this was from the Valentines Crimson Doubles event.
And apparently I've played more Trials than I ever thought. I have 783 Elimination wins, most of that from Trials. Damn.
So I have 60 points left from Crucible, of which I'll probably never get more than 30.
-10 pts: Sidearm kills. I'm at 1736 after spending about 2 hours doing more of this last night. I need to get to 5000!
- 5 pts: Hydra kills. I'm at 159 out of 250. Like I said, it is ridiculous that I'm so far from this when I'm so far past some of the other marks. For example, you only need 2500 Goblin kills and I have 21,262! Even on Ogres, which a lot of people farm along with the Hyrdas, I'm at 715 (only needed 250).
-15 pts: Summoning Pit strike. I got the hard one here, but didn't know there was a second one in the boss room. I had to play the strike all the way through twice the other night to get the one. The first time I was by myself till the very end, then while I kept trying to jump up to get the ghost, the other guy killed the boss. So I'll have to run it again like that unless anyone here also wants to try to get it (and we can take our time at the boss).
So it looks like I'm just about 90 points short of the max possible on Xbox (there are a few PlayStation-only ones). But to hit 4900 all I need is that Summoning Pits one. So I'm going to do that tonight .
