I know he responded again but I don't think CB was super clear, but he is right to warn people. If you never played the first Destiny you may not be familiar. They integrate new weapons and stuff in to general game play, so I was having weapons drop that had a "you can't use this item since you don't own the dlc" icon. Basically I was picking up items that just wasted space in my inventory. It can just get frustrating when you get a gun that looks cool and has nice stats that you either have to pay to use or scrap.
I know what you’re talking about as I did buy Destiny 1 base and later the Taken King edition.
For this, I still picked up the standard edition since, as I mentioned, it’s just as cheap to buy the expansion pass separately vs the deluxe edition.
Figure if I cross that road and feel like I want it, I can buy it then and not really have lost anything. That was my point.
Buying the base game itself doesn’t make it obsolete if you can still buy the expansions and pay the same (or in this case save $1).
