I have to get around to doing that same Corrupted mission, so feel free to ping me if you see me on. I can get to the orb room solo, but there's just too much to deal with once I trigger the shield enemies, and the checkpoint is a little too far back to bash my head against in true Titan fashion.

Me and Chnandler did it the other day.  BUT... I just unlocked it on my Titan as well and I might prefer doing the subsequent part (banking motes in Gambit) on him anyway since I'm also working on unlocking Breakneck.  We had a little trouble with just the 2 of us (mostly due to me) but obviously it makes a huge difference having even just one person backing you up.

 

But yeah the orb room is probably the hardest part.

In the comment thread someone is complaining about not getting exotics and someone else says they've gotten 4-5 in the last week.  Same here!  I've been shocked at the drops the last few times I've played.  And they just randomly show up in the middle of activities, especially Gambit.  I got 2 exotics on my Titan in ONE ROUND of Gambit a few days ago.  Nothing good, mind you (mostly armor for classes I don't play very much).  But still, almost more in just the last week alone than I got in the previous 2 months of solid nearly daily playing.

 

So I'd say *something* is going on with exotic drops now.

Exotic drops run very hot and very cold I think, with very little in between. About a month ago I got FOUR exotics (three of them new to me) within two hours while playing on my titan. Over the last few days, I got THREE copies of Le Monarque from forge Powerful drops (twice in two consecutive forge runs). I still don't have all the new exotics, but the game has been pretty generous to me.

EDIT - FYI, if you are interested in experiencing the part of the game from that Tweet, let me know and get your jumping legs on. ;)

I thought this was something new to the game.  Well, it is new to me, anyway.  I tried it last night (3 times) and got about 2/3 the way through the jumping puzzle part before time ran out on me.  At least I know where to go next (read about it afterwards).  On my last attempt I made it to the big area with all the portals but I didn't even know they were portals so I spent 10 minutes hopping around looking for an exit.  Now I think I know which one to pick.  So, yeah, if you want to help me run through it I think we can get it done pretty easily.

 

I found a way to get right to the start without even having to go to the Lost Sector boss chest.  Though it is so dark I'm pretty much just guessing where to jump.  The very first time I did it, there was a piece of lore to scan on the ledge and I found the entrance to the secret area totally by accident. I had spent half the 20 mins running around the lost sector with no idea where to go before that ;).  Kind of wish the lore was back just so I could see where the dark platform is.

 

Vendetta - you still read this thread at all?  I saw you doing the Last Wish raid last night.  At some point in the future, I'd like to raid again.

Crimson Days is back: https://www.polygon....eak-bow-rewards

 

I will only be able to play the first half of it (till the 16th).  So I need to hit that stuff early on.

Supposedly most of the stuff you get from it is carried over from the same event last year.

Yeah one of the cool things I have that probably isn't super common is the exotic heart-spewing sparrow.

 

FYI - I'm going to try to be on around 11pm Pacific tonight (a little earlier that usual).

Tried the Whisper of the Worm thing again last night.   Apparently I didn't know where to go next.  The description I read said to go down below the next room and all that was down there was thrall and paths that led back up to the room I started in.  Wasted a ton of time there.  Afterwards I watched a video and they didn't go down in that room at all.

 

Also, started Shattered Throne by myself.  I could see maybe clearing the first part solo, but it is a pain that you have to start all over if you get killed.

 

So, yeah, need some help with both probably ;).

So the room you were having trouble in is called the Green Room (the community isn't very imaginative).  There is a nook right under the entrance that you have to crouch through to get into a hallway of sorts to make it through to the next room.  I recently went through there to get the catalyst for the WotW and had trouble finding it.  The lighting in that section is bad, intentionally so I think.

 

I attempted a solo (briefly flawless) run in the Shattered Throne when max PL was 600 and it ended with so much fail.  That damn Vorgeth.......

The content was introduced in Warmind, and I don't think Bungie ever adjusted the PL req for it, so ~600 should be more than enough.  Barring any SNAFUs with the jumping part, we should be able to team up and get it done pretty easily.

 

Also, for anyone wanting to tackle The Anomaly as a Titan, I recommend watching this video:

Chnandler and I tackled Shattered Throne last night.  It is quite extensive - nearly raid-like, but of course meant for smaller groups.  We didn't end up having too much trouble with the Ogre, but the final boss gave us some trouble.  Finally we switched tactics to using supers as much as possible and we broke through.

 

Whisper of the Worm quest next...

Honestly that might be the first raid engram reward the clan has got since the second or third week of release of vanilla D2.

Yeah I wanna know who did it and what raid?  PS4 people maybe?

 

Hmmm.... I'm reading up on it and now it seems that just one person from the Clan can trigger the reward.  DIdn't it used to be that at least half the fireteam had to be members?  So it could have just been someone doing one with LFG or some other group.  Though that makes it even more surprising that we haven't seen more!

You sure you guys didn’t unlock it doing the shattered throne? I thought that was considered a 3 man raid level activity? All I know is I got a very generic reward for it wasn’t even raid related.

I'm not sure what's going on, because I only see 20% completion of the LW raid at most and 0% completion of SotP.  Maybe the website I use can't properly track this info?  #shrug

Three of us in the clan have been doing the Shattered Throne at least once every full curse week for a few full curse weeks now, so I don't think that's it.

If possible if anyone is on this afternoon I need help running through the 630 LL mission to unlock the third forge.

Thanks

Destiny released a ViDoc detailing what we can expect from Season of the Drifter (starting next week!) and beyond.  HYPE, as usual.

Dammit.  Looks like I might have to buy the season pass finally.  If so, I may ask for help catching up on the forges.

 

And hopefully we can at least get a 4 man group for Reckoning since we can't seem to do it for the raids.  I hope that is just 4 anyway - I'm just assuming since it is Gambit-related.

 

I played Gambit last night since they have the rank boost this week.  Figured I'd want to reset it at least once.  I just hit Legend and now there's even more ranks to slog through!?  With like 3000 points each.  Ugh, may not finish that...  I got a triumph for hitting "max rank" but I still seem to be getting points and I can't see how to reset.  I know when I did it for Crucible it was not very intuitive.  Like you had to start an activity and do it before it loaded or something weird.  Didn't work for Gambit though.

 

I also still need to do the Whisper quest.

You need to hover over Gambit while you’re on the destination map and I think hold in “Y” I think.

The last 3000 points for your Gambit rank can be a slog, because losses don't give you points anymore.  It's best to save up bounties and turn them in at this point.  However, if we can get a four man group together for Gambit that would make wins that much easier.  Communication is KEY in that game mode.
 
Also, if you are still teetering about getting the Annual Pass, here is the expanded roadmap for the next several months.

I saw that but I don't fully understand what everything is.   I want to get that damn forge machine gun though. Tired of being killed by it!   I might buy the pass and play a little earlier tonight if you want to run anything.

 

I'm also still working on the exotic bounty in Gambit.  I got the motes banked but still need wins.  I actually got 4 in a row last night.  But I still need 4 or 5 more.

 

ajh - Yeah, I tried that.  I think I need to finish off that last 3000 points first.  I just hit "Legend" last night.

OK, I'm trying to buy the pass and it isn't in the store - at least on the web site.  Will check on the 'box later.

 

Never mind - found it.  Had to search for "destiny 2 pass" instead of "destiny 2 annual pass".  OK.

There may be a way from the Director to take you to a product page in the Xbox Store.

Favorite new Destiny related video:

 

 

If nothing else, these videos are GREAT at building hype.  Pay close attention to the various perks for each of the Gambit (Prime only?) roles.

So I'm currently 609. I know the drifter had bounties to get me to 640, but how much of a hard time should I expect to have doing Gambit Prime bounties at 609?

I don't think those will be too hard but Reckoning might be a little hairy, as it has a recommended level of 650.  Is Gambit power level dependent or normalized like Crucible?  I don't even know.

 

Leveling after 650 seems to be much slower than it was before (from 600-650).  I started getting stuff at a whopping 651 from my powerful gear.  The only thing I got any better was a Prime Engram at 655.

 

Already picked up 4 pieces of the new Gambit Prime Gear (which by the way you get at like 630-635 if you are 650).  I need to do a serious cleanup of my Vault space if I plan on getting all 4 sets of gear for 3 characters - plus multiples of some for different perks.  Ouch.
