#14169299 XBox One X w/PUBG $300, PS4 Pro $314, Switch $244 with Google...

Posted by 100xp on 28 May 2019 - 06:50 PM

X1X arrived today via UPS (6 days ahead of schedule).

 

Console box in a larger box, hopefully it didn't get tossed around.

 

Top seals were clearly cut and resealed w/stickers...bottom seals were intact because you don't need to cut those to open the box. Box was certainly opened, small crease in the top flap reinforces that hunch.

 

Controller scotch tape on protective packaging sleeve has a finger print but the controller itself seems to be devoid of any usage.

 

Power cord & some other cable included seems to be fine...game code, game pass code, & XBL cards are seem to be in order (but I haven't tried redeeming them yet).

 

Console itself also seems to be fine.

 

 

 

If it works and I have no problems, I'm good...here's to no problems. Hope everyone else had as good and/better luck.

Yeah, I read the fine print...funny still, I was actually considering getting the Dot today since it's on sale for $29.99.

 

You know if it came with exclusive in game emotes, weapons, skins, sparrows, and emblems they'd sell more...they shoulda had the ultimate collector's edition w/this or bundled it w/the DLC or something.

Yeah, i'd like to do the prestige NF at least once. 

Datto a D2 youtuber and his fireteam smashed the Prestige NF on the 1st phase of the boss fight by waiting for Arc (prism) to end him.

 

I think we can do that. I have a Raiden Flux chest & 2 scout rifles ready.

Not...even...close.

 

gunplay is so different on PC, it's not even close

I regret nothing...for getting it on xbox though, I think I would probably have spent more on impulse buys while waiting for it to come out on PC. Plus, snipers on PC tend to be more prevalent and godly.

 

As for last night? Yeah...passed out after parental duties were complete. I do remember waking up at 4:30am and realizing I missed out on possibly getting in on the tail end of a Raid w/randoms.

 

Hopefully we can get the NF done on prestige. I'd like to rock an Aura for once in game along w/the rewards to be reaped from completing a prestige NF. I anticipate parental duty will end earlier than usual as trick or treating should tire out the offspring sooner than later.

After watching that solo video on clearing the NF, I did carry them. haha.

 

I took every shortcut, put down rifts with heals and arc orbs, spammed the @#$% out of my nades, and cleared ads w/my super 3 times. I think when I sped ahead of the duo in my sparrow to board the ship I assumed they'd join allies but since they were alive...they just fought, died, revived outside for longer than they should have. 2nd tank fight we were down to 10 minutes.

 

2 - 274, not spamming w/torrent is on was just not enough to win the night. There's always starting my Titan if I can get past the facial creation stage.

 

Just FYI -- You'll always be matched against a fireteam of the same clan.  The game will only let you host a guided game if there are two people from the same clan (for NF anyways, not sure what the minimum # from the same clan is for raids though...).  It sucks you got matched with players who didn't know what they were doing.  They were probably hoping you could carry them.  Lol.

Not really a rumor as much as it is a mechanic that has been in all of Bungie’s games since Halo : p

you figure they stealth nerf things all the time...there's hidden perks for exotics and class abilities, I wouldn't be surprised if they tweaked this mechanic and/or ppl not even remembering it worked that way.

 

w/the warlock boots that let you move faster, I was crouch creeping up on ppl and wondered why didn't didn't notice me (after watching a video on it). Just wanted to confirmzorz.

Okay, so I am at 266 with a single character. What is the best use of my time attempting to move the needle on my light level? Doing all the various and sundry adventures and quests? Pretending I know how to play PvP well? Trying to track down people to play with in the cooperative space?

I do okay with anything I try, but there seems to be another layer that isn't quite clicking for me. Like the whole "don't open a bunch of chests in chronoproximity" that is so antithetical to my "Clear All The Icons!" open world strategy. And there are still some public events I don't know how to trigger the Heroic version. Stuff like that.

I suppose I should also find a clan.

Public Events (Heroic) are the most efficient way to not only get gear but XP as well. imo Titan tends to be good because the close proximity of the 3 pub events that occur along w/how often the heroic is triggered. There's also usually a high value target near each event, sometimes even shooting the enemies at said event.

 

The gear & tokens will help w/the RNG process of getting higher level gear and exotics for infusing.

 

Doing story line missions after the campaign also help w/rewards that should be rewarded higher than your current power level. I would only recommend you stagger them since it's always good to start and finish one when you reach a power level wall.

 

Same goes w/your powerful & luminous engram milestone rewards. Redeem one, level up until you get stuck...then redeem the next one...etc etc.

 

With this practice you should w/casual play raise 2-3 power levels a day...then every powerful, luminous, or storyline mission gear reward, jump another 1-2 on top of it.

 

The chest looting cap is just 5 w/in 5 minutes...basically, don't do it w/Cayde's chests. Open his chest first then go do a public event before you seek out the next treasure chest.

 

Google the many ways to boost levels on youtube, there's hundreds of them.

I FINALLY got Curtain Call and Knucklehead Radar! Gah.

Also wtf is up with Hunters ALWAYS getting the short end of the stick.. Xur hasn't even been here a month and already he offers a duplicate for Hunters...

I thought I heard over the loud speaker in the tower the other day...

 

"PSA: Due to the popularity of Hunters, we are giving them the brown end of the thermometer for the first season. Enjoy your emo shaders...That is all."

 

I would get the exotic Xur sells the day before he arrives and then sells that item. It's happened 2 weeks in a row. I already have Foetracer but RNG gave me Skyrunner's Oath last night during a heroic pub so I'm not allowed to complain until the next exotic decryption.

I got a 160 Sparrow from a Bright Engram that shoots SPARKLES out the back, so yay!

 

Also, I got some bad news for Trials Thursdays... ;)

 

What?!

 

Okay...I need a sparrow that farts unicorn rainbow vapor trails in order to top that.

 

No Trial's Thursdays?! Then it shall be renamed...the PVP event that you need a fireteam to participate but not on Tues or Thursday because That's Taco night.

291*

 

 

Was able to decrypt 'Mob Justice' from the raid clan reward.

 

In PVP it has the potential to be a beast, just not in my hands as a hunter. Hahaha. I feel I need more HPs or need to get the jump on someone. I am however doing as well as one could with Uriel's Gift & Nameless Midnight, actually who I am I kidding...I don't even need a kinetic slot, I just need energy ammo & Uriel's Gift.

 

I'm down for Trials tonight between 10pm until I my reaction time and motor skills start to suffer.

 

 

Shooting Orbs: for those that didn't know, not for those that do know...you can shoot a Nightstalker's tether orb and blow it up just like a trip mine or smoke nade etc. I popped someone's orb in crucible the other day and I guess s/he wasn't expecting that to happen and surprise surprise when the other 2 ppl on my team suddenly weren't tethered and s/he jumped into the melee. Lessons were learned and 1 supremacy engram was secured.

the rumor is there's a faction engram cap per rally...that being 30, which amounts to 600 tokens, which breaks down to: (math because I'm bored at work & can't play D2)

 

75 heroic public events (this most fun & profitable imo)

150 normal public events

300 quickplay crucible matches (we didn't win many last night so I don't recall if we got more than 2)

600 s'ploding up rival faction crates in lost sectors

 

It's apparently per rally event, per character.

 

Once you hit the 30 engram cap, the rewards become shaders and shards maybe? Possibly in the future rallies, ships and sparrows. So at dat cap, it's recommended you switch characters and farm dem tokens for another 30 engrams if you want to maximize your engram farm.

 

Speaking of caps, there's also a chest opening cap apparently. Like, if you open more than 5 chests in a 5 minute period, all chests after have the potential to yield nothing but glimmer...not even a token sometimes. So stagger Cayde's treasure hunting.

but the new monarchy shaders are so pretty

I know you have multiple characters, you can probably just buy them and apply them to your gear. :D

 

 

 

As for kool-aid, Dead Orbit haz kool-aid, it's black or white but tastes just like any of the variety of flavors available...but it's a mystery. Ooo.  :beer:

 

My usual time slot on a weeknight is about 10 pm - 2 am EST. Most ppl in the clan are raiding or doing their own thing. The doing their own thingers should probably party up and do their own thing as a fireteam more often.

 

I tested the Lucky Raspberry chest after watching those videos...yeah, maybe mine is broken. I don't think I ever got it to proc in the crucible, but for PVE it's awesome.

I got a Vigilance Wing last night too but I haven't used it yet.  I hear a lot of Mida Multi Tools and Agenda 5's in Curcible, but I don't think I've heard the 5-round burst of Vigilance Wing.  Is it good in PVP? :)

I see Mida Multi Tool in crucible a lot mainly because dat radar when ADS. Plus you figure ppl wanna showboat a bit and boast they did the quest ahead of other ppl.

 

Normally I lose when trading w/a V_Wing. I'm guessing because I think, pulse rifle...okay, I can kill him before the 3rd volley of rounds. Nope, those 5 rounds w/the recoil pattern is likely hitting 2 in the chest and 2 in the face, and maybe 1 miss. By the 2nd volley of rounds, I'm probably already head at mid to close range.

 

I used pulse rifles in PVP and it's not like D1 to me, I used the same pulse rifles in PVE and it was like throwing popcorn at a tank. Switched to V_wing. Holy cow. I felt like I was using an SMG or AR in CC. Lot of acronyms there.
