I'll just drop this here...

 

It's Bungie Day!

 

Officially announced Moments of Triumph 2

Two shaders and two emblems shown.

https://www.bungie.n...APPY-BUNGIE-DAY

They recommend logging into each toon after you pick up the record book.  This will help track the activity from all three toons

 

Website and app are both wonky right now, so here's a pic.

There's also another emblem available, if you purchase something from the Bungie store.

Guessing you could stack this offer with the free emblem you can get from buying the soundtrack(s).

First deets of the update are out and overall I'd say it's good.  Can't help but feel like it's too little, too late though.

 

New strike-taken archon priest

New questline-Malok

 

Max light of 335

Level 41 PoE-gets you up to 320 and has matchmaking

Level 42 PoE-gets you up to 335, no Matchmaking

 

KF raid rewards getting upgrades

Normal gives 320 gear

Hard gives 330 gear

 

Court of Oryx-dropping 335 artifacts.

My trials DoP dropped with Rodeo... not bad really.  I'll try to get my other toons thru, to see what kind of roll they'll get.

Otherwise, I'm ready for next week's Iron Doctrine

 

 

Anyone willing to help me out on the Hard raid? I've done Normal KF dozens of times, but it's at the point where I can't get past my current lvl of 309 without getting Hard Mode gear.

Sounds like what you really need are challenge mode completions for those guaranteed light-level drops.

My clan's willing to help.  We got a couple other Cag's plus others that have become solid teammates.

 

And lately, we've had times where we need to get a 6th (sometimes a 5th too) since our schedules don't line up.

We try to shoot for a 10:30 est/7:30 pst start, for the most part.  The night can vary, depending on whose online.

 

If you want, add me and we'll go from there.

Ended up going with the Dean Vendetta XMT as aFrostyONE recommended.  I went with this bundle and found a coupon code for 8% off, not bad: http://www.guitarcen...273887987617.gc

Congrats :beer: .

 

Don't expect you'll need to do much tweaking to get the guitar playing, other than tuning it up.

 

But if you run into issues, just post and one of us should be able to help out.

Are there any really cheap guitars anyone would recommend?  I've been thinking about buying a cheap guitar to try out and see if I like it, with Rocksmith 2014, though I wouldn't want to invest too much in case learning/playing guitar doesn't really click with me.

 

If I go with something like this one on Amazon, will that work for learning purposes, or would I be screwing myself over? http://www.amazon.co.../dp/B002RXXOX8/

That's really NOT a good option.  Gonna be as bad as the majority of those First Act guitars... and those are terrible.

 

It may be old advice but still good advice is the Dean Vendetta xmt

http://www.amazon.co...s=dean vendetta

 

Dean Evo is another choice, if you'd rather have a different body type

http://www.amazon.co...s=dean vendetta

 

The nice thing about these two is that they're not too pricey (usually 100) and they're really solid models.  If you stick with it you'll find that these will serve you for a good long while. You might find used ones for $50, considering how many people picked up that model back when RS first released.  Might be worth it to check pawn shops or the used sections of music stores.

Twilight Garrison is finally in the loot table (proper) for everyone.  It lets a titan do mid-air dodge maneuvers, key word being mid-air.  I've been using it too and it IS fun.  But definitely need a lot of practice to really make it shine, like the MOTW in the last Bungie update.

 

Astrocyte Verse is a new one to me, but guessing it has some sort of  dodge too.  I'll need to watch for that one.

 

EDIT:  Here's the vid I mentioned

Got 2 GoGo challenges done last night...

 

Hunter-got a 320 chest and another 320 artifact.  Chest was a bad roll so I infused it into my alpha lupi chest piece.  Artifact isn't better either so that will eventually get infused into something else.

Titan-got 320 boots and 320 artifact. Boots are just as bad as my current ones but I'll be wearing them since these are 320 and they do help while running relic.  Artifact was a bad roll too so I'll infuse it eventually.

 

Moved on and finished the raid for each and got screwed on the drops.  Nothing better than my current gear. 

Still Fuck 'g waiting for that first hard-raid helmet :wall: .  Oryx challenge mode can't come soon enough.

-blue sparkle Squier strat HH (turns out this was my last purchase prior the Melody Maker,4th of July 2k14)

-Epiphone Swingster (when it was minty fresh outta the box)

-Hofner 185 solidbody bass

-Hofner Galaxie 6 string

Ok. Thanks for the advice. 

 

Lets say I want to still give this version a shot (unless it's garbage compared to the 2014 version...) are those guitars for $99 at Guitar Center worth it as a starter? The ones you provided links on in an earlier post...  I'm not opposed to starting over and learning a 6-string guitar. The "junior" listed in the name has be a bit concerned as I am 6'2" 300lbs... I don't want to get a tiny guitar and feel awkward playing it. 

 

Thanks again.

Like Crazed said, these LP Jr's are full scale guitars and are fine for Rocksmith.  The junior refers to the fact that this has less features than a regular Les Paul.  Pretty much a marketing ploy to sell more guitars back in the 50's, but the Junior line developed it's own following and kick ass in their own way.

 

If this feels small to you, then you're gonna find that a whole mess of guitars are gonna feel small.  Best I can tell ya is... go out to guitar center or some other music store and start holding different models until you find one you're comfortable with.

 

In my case, I have 2 of these:  A cherry sunburst that I got with Rocksmith (the og BestBuy deal that started this entire thread) and a trans blue that I got as a gift.  These are the two I tend to play the most and I think it's because they are solid guitars and I don't worry too much if they get knocked around so they're always at the ready.  Where as my other guitars are in cases and while it sounds silly, it can be a drag to pull one out and get it ready to play

Posted by aFrostyONE on 30 November 2015 - 06:38 PM

Cyber Monday deals are pretty much the same as the BF deals.  At least, I'm not noticing anything different (big surprise)

 

BestBuy still has Rocksmith 2014 for $35 ($28 if you have GCU) :xb1:  :ps4:

http://www.bestbuy.c...s=960&keys=keys

This should be the game+cable bundle, based on the box art alone.

 

EDIT: might have missed these last time, but they're on sale at GuitarCenter right now.  Haven't seen either of these at this price in a while.

Epi Les Paul Jr. in alpine white @$99

http://www.guitarcen...Guitar-White.gc

Epi Les Paul Jr. in trans blue @$99

http://www.guitarcen...on-LP-Junior.gc

 

EDIT #2: Music & Arts has a 20% off coupon (good on anything 99 or over)  - CMTWNTY.

The real kicker... they had the Union Jack Sheraton on clearance and when I applied the coupon, it knocked it down to the mid $400's :hot: .  Too bad it's out of stock.  But maybe you'll get lucky and find something else to use it on.

EDIT #2.5: just tried out the Line 6 variax guitar and the code works.  So, pretty good coupon to try.

You still have to complete the exotic sword quest to get the option.  And even then you're only able to buy the legendary swords, so not really much of an issue. 

EDIT(unless, there's some glitch that instantly gives you the other exotic swords, then yeah... I'd be pissed ;) )

 

Getting the legendary sword was pretty easy, just meant you had to start a fresh quest on another toon.  Now you'll be able to have all three legendaries on each toon, if you wanted.
