If you are grinding the heck out of whatever before Shadowkeep drops, make sure to plan for no gaming after Monday's reset.

I'm down for any of the raids - finished Leviathan and EoW in full, most of SoS, and LW. Haven't touched SotP or CoS at all. Slick Steve87 on xbl.

I added you as a friend over the weekend, but my free time turned to dust.  This weekend should have much more availability...

This week's TWAB is a pretty meaty one, so make sure to take everything in.

 

Don't forget that there is a scheduled maintenance period that is expected to last from reset on Monday to reset on Tuesday (when the new content goes live), so if you need to do anything in game (like delete Eververse items) make sure to get it all done before you power down on Sunday as you likely won't get another chance after that before the new season starts.

 

Also, does everyone have their Cross-save information set up and their PC migration information (if necessary) set up?  If not I recommend doing that soon.

 

Cross save setup

Battle.net to Steam migration setup

 

This all being said, is anyone looking to play the game on PC?  I have a maybe strong enough gaming PC to play on the lower settings (with a controller of course), but I will still main Xbox One.  I also have Forsaken for PS4, but I bought that before I realized that I would need PS+ in order to play some/all of the content on PS4.   :shock:  :bomb:

Still playing almost daily.  I really don't know what it is about this game, but there you go...

Anybody going to be on Friday or Saturday night would love to do 100,000 Nightfall and Dungeon to get those 952 drops.

I should be, but I haven't really looked at the Dungeon just yet, so might need to hit the books or be instructed.

Also wouldn't mind getting to the ninth branch in the Forest, if anyone wants to give that a shot. Best I have done is six or seven with randoms (had a really good team one run, then the Servitor boss glitched off the map).

Me and a few buddies had a wild hair last night and attempted the 980 Ordeal (Pyramidion) in order to get whatever ship you get, but even being mid-960's we still struggled mightily with the initial encounter.  The addition of Attrition combined with how hard they were hitting was just too much, so we backed it down to the 950 version and didn't have any wipes and at a comfortable pace we were able to get 104K out of it.  I certainly wouldn't mind doing that again.

 

As far as Match Game is concerned, the only two shield elements you need to worry about are Void (Minotaurs) and Arc (Harpies) so you don't need to focus on Solar at all.

Dungeon  -  If we can sync up sometime this weekend I can take you through it.  If you haven't done the pre-steps for the Xenophage quest and are interested in the gun, here is a good video to get to the steps that are required in the Dungeon:

 

Spoiler

 

Even with the extra steps for the Xenophage quest, I only had one (probably BS) death in last night's run, so I am hungry to do it again.  Fully Masterworked, Pinnacle level gear doesn't hurt either. ;)

 

Haunted Forest  -  Somehow we were able to get to the 10th branch last night, so 9th branch is definitely doable.  Just make sure to have good add-clear capability and good burst damage and the boss will go down very quickly.  This was our crew:

  • Top tree Solar Titan with Peregrine Greaves and Monte Carlo (these seem to be glued to his hands and feet now).  If the boss is a Wizard it will most likely go down from the initial knee hit.
  • Middle tree Arc Warlock with Geomag Stabilizers
  • Top tree Solar Hunter for add clear (I use a beefy Grenade Launcher with double reserves for Boss damage because Heavy Ammo is pretty plentiful).

I half-watched someone's guide to that quest and said "that sounds complicated" and haven't gone back yet. Heh.

Interesting. I've been rolling with the Actium War Rig with either Sweet Business or Monte Carlo and a machine gun (lots of heavy bricks). I'm spraying bullets all over the place. I'll try the Greaves.

Monte Carlo + Peregrine Greaves is a match made in heaven (Monte Carlo randomly gives you back your melee attack on kill). Also, I wouldn't recommend Machine Guns for boss damage but they are fantastic at add control.

I'm in for 3 runs of the dungeon too Chuck.  Getting that masterworked gear is awesome.  I'd also like to run Ordeal as I haven't done it even once yet.  I should be on tonight and tomorrow night.  But the dungeon is definitely top priority because of the masterworked stuff.  (I just want to do Ordeal at least once to get rid of the quest for it).

 

I should be, but I haven't really looked at the Dungeon just yet, so might need to hit the books or be instructed.

Also wouldn't mind getting to the ninth branch in the Forest, if anyone wants to give that a shot. Best I have done is six or seven with randoms (had a really good team one run, then the Servitor boss glitched off the map).

I was able to get 2 different characters through branch 9 with total randoms last night.  But it is definitely hit or miss.  People seem to be better at it now than last week or the week before when branch 5 or 6 seemed to be the max. In nearly every run I made it to 8 at least.  One time we had it with a minute to spare (after branch 8) but wiped on the boss because I don't think the other randos knew it would end.  I was busy casting my Chaos Reach and then bum rushing the boss with my shotgun and almost got him down but didn't notice the other 2 died.  To what I'm not sure.  They should have been clearing adds and being careful OR going full bore with the supers at the boss.  Apparently they did neither.  When I realized they were dead I hightailed out of the bosses range but my health was already too low to survive (plus all the adds were still there).  Thus the problem of not being able to communicate even when you can get to the last boss.   But the 2 runs where I did it, we melted it fast and had no problem.

 

One way to see how its probably going to go for your group is to see how fast you melt the first few bosses.  If they aren't going down in seconds, you probably aren't making it to branch 9.

 

Last week I was in a run where me and 2 randos beat the branch 8 boss (servitor that time) with 2 seconds to spare (thanks partially to me standing in front of it's face with my full auto shotgun).  That was pretty exciting.

 

I also noticed that rocket launchers seem to be far superior for the forest bosses than a machine gun.  And as you said with the mask perks you get lots of heavy bricks.
