Between 3 nightfalls, crota kills, and gorgon, I got 5 exotics last night :lol:

Mida, Suros, Universal Remote, Skullfort, and Plan C. In other words 5 exotic shards :D

Oh, and last night I finally for a Future War Cult shader at rank 16. I got Carthage which is kind of a light red sandstone kind of color. It is nice, but not worth all the trouble I went through to get it ;).

I hate you. ;)


Also the upgrades for Legendaries vs Exotics is different.  Exotic Shard required to upgrade Exotics to 365.  Legendaries take a new material (Etheric Light).  You get those from Osiris, Prison of Elders, and Nightfalls as well.


Couple other notes to add:


-Osiris will run weekend.  Friday-Tuesday (reset time)

-2 Bounty people in the reef.  1 of them (The Fallen guy) will have a rotating inventory each week.  So you will be able to buy armor that way.

-The queens ship is freaking awesome looking!

-Xur no longer needed for upgrades since everything is within your menu now.

-ALL legendary weapons and armors will be upgradeable.




-I'm wondering if we will be able to get Supremacy from Queen's Wrath like last time.  It had a low drop chance turning bounties in.  I really want a pink sniper dammit!


-Anyone else watch the stream?  Deej dismantling that Gjallarhorn was fucking awesome. :D


-Sounds like they are still very against trading.  I'm glad for that.  I worked hard to get all the exotics.  Keep it that way Bungie

I'm still in it! Child of Light, Lego Movie, and Goat Simulator have been my go-to sources of low hanging fruit so far, and I've got Dead or Alive 5 on deck.


An hour, seriously? How much does it cost?

I think it was like $8.  I bought that and Goat Simulator last night as safeties in case I'm in desperate need.  I should have saved Another World for that thinking about it, since I popped like 7 achievements in Mordor last night :lol:


Also here is a good article, written by one of my friends on their podcast website.  Yes I'm shilling on their behalf.  ;)




I had no idea Contrast was that quick.  I guess next time Monopoly is cheap, I'll buy it as well. :)



Halo is going to be a game to save a lot of people in Leap Frog since it has so many quick achievements.  I wish I had saved some of those but oh well.

Already done all 3 on hard :(, and 2 Atheons on Hard.


I only want a few things, including a 3rd Gjallarhorn, the dead orbit ship/shader, aaaand (I gave up on Bane of Dark Gods. Have another Crux before I could get a single ship. Now everyone has them)...? I did finally get a cool New Monarchy shader (my 1st faction ship or shader). I have never seen any of FWC shaders orships. I have friends with 3 Dead Orbit shaders & a ship. I couldn't have cared less about New Monarchy shader before I got it, but I'll take what I can get (and I do like on my warlock).

I'm like the opposite of you.  I think I have 3 of the ship but I have yet to get a single Sparrow from all the Crota kills I've had.


And apparently I got my ships mixed up, because outside of getting Fermi Solution, I guess I really cared more about shaders.  The Monarchy one looks very plain to me.  The War Cult one is cool but I want the shaders dammit! :)

I'm actually on my 2nd go around hitting 120k.  My old account (long story) had some cheating on it (due to a roommate I was living with at the time).  I had no idea and had to own up to it when I partook in a competition on X360A at the time.  It really is a sore spot with me as I had some pretty nice completions on that card too..  :cry:


Anywho, I wonder where I would be at score wise had I not "prestiged" my gamerscore as I like to put it :lol:


I'm sitting at 124,220 currently.  Much like with Glock, Destiny really stalled me putting up points.  Since I now have everything, I'm playing much less and have been having a go with Halo since it isn't as broken.  I think me wanting to get back into gamerscore is something that will aid in not playing as much Destiny.


Feel free to add me on X1.  I will be gaming on my 360 again here soon as well.


I know I have the means to hit 200k with real ease but I really don't want to play those shit easy and awful kids games just for points.  Doing most of those the first time was hard enough.  Doing it a 2nd time would mean I hate myself that much lol.  On my old account I hit 100k on the button with the Hannah Montana game on a dare that I didn't have the balls to be ridiculed.  Well I did and I did get a lot of shit from my casual friends.  I think that might be my 200K game on this account.  :)

I think this game wants me to stop playing it.  My RNG for the past month has been atrociously bad.  I did all 3 of my nightfalls last night... I ended up with an io like reward without the Handshake. ;)


-The Crash (void) :bomb:

-The Crash (solar) :bomb: :wall:

-I was fully expecting a 3rd one with Arc and probably would have quit playing for the week had that happened but I ended up with a 3rd MIDA Multi-Tool.


So yeah shotguns, shotguns, and fusion rifles with the occasional shard drop for the past month or so in Nightfalls, Raids and from Engrams...  I swear the game doesn't want me to have sniper rifles... :bomb:



On another note, my friend got the Fermi Solution Dead Orbit ship :hot: :hot: :hot:



I still have raids to run, but if I don't get them done this week I probably won't really care to be honest.  I do have a couple friends that need hard raid clears, so if anyone is down for that I think I have room for a few more.  I can run sword if need be.


Now that Halo isn't broken and working like it is supposed to, I've been slowly working at it.  I should hopefully be getting the LASO checkpoints here very soon.  So I'm really excited about that :D

Managed to get Flawless Raider with io and 3 others.  So yeah we 5 manned the Crota raid and didn't cheese the bridge either!  :)  I'm off to Redbox at lunch to get the stack and my 1000 gamerscore on the 360 version now.


io has a short video of the kill here:



So happy to have the game complete gamerscore wise.  :)

Has there been any further word of Zombie Army Trilogy getting a physical release here, debating just importing now.

They said they were working on getting one here.  I still don't understand why we didn't get a physical at the same time the Europe did.  I almost imported one and then almost bought it digitally with the discount.  Thankfully I have so much to play that I can refrain until we get a physical release here. :)

io, congrats on the g-horn. Vendetta/Linkin good work on the iron banner.  I kept thinking I would get into some Iron Banner this week to clear up some exotic bounties, but I ended up waiting too long to really commit.  Plus I never did iron banner so I don't have all the boost items unlocked yet.  lol 


I was reading this guide https://www.reddit.c..._ib_a_detailed/ and it sounds like you only have to commit a couple hours a day to hit the top ranks since the tempered bonus is so high the last few days.  Next time around I might put some time into it, but we'll see if I'm still playing by then.  Not much to keep me going now, but keep playing for some reason. :(


Oh yea, Vendetta you will like this story.  I was buying synths this weekend plus trying to clear up some vault space and wandered over the the postmaster to pick up a level up package.  Went in there and along with 3 Husk of the Pits that I never picked up was a brand new Red Death.  I don't remember seeing it drop so not sure if it was just something I missed from a Crota/Atheon kill or what.  So I have all the exotic weapons on new rolls except for Bad Juju, Thorn & Invenctive.  I have active bounties for all 3 so I guess eventually I have to finish them up.

Yeah for IB, if I were you I would at least try to get at least the Emblem and Shader.  The bounties are pretty easy to complete and should boost you up in rank really fast.


As for Red Death... Jerk.  ;)



Also yesterday in Iron Banner, I brought a knife to a gun fight. :D

Dumb ass Xur...

Nothing of note. No heavy synths. I think the weapon is Plan C (the ONE exotic I get a lot from the Raid chests/checkpoints). He has Sunbreakers (for like the 10th time at least) and Don't Touch Me (everyone should buy these if they have a Hunter or think they might ever have one). He has gauntlet engrams AGAIN.

And yet the engram RNG still continues to be good to me even when all others suck. I got two gauntlet engrams. First, on my Warlock, I got Claws of Akhamwhatever which turned into an exotic shard since I had better ones already (hadn't even bothered to level them up). But then on my Titan I had to run to Xur to turn in that last Eris mission (for the gauntlets - I just cleared it so it wouldn't keep taking up a bounty slot). On a whim I decided to get one more engram and I ended up with Ruin Wings! Yes! I think that's the only exotic gauntlet I didn't have.

So that inspired me to do a few bounties and patrols to level them up a bit.

I took the Bad Juju bounty on my Warlock - it's too bad I did it right after doing the Nightfall and Weekly since that is the first step. I don't really feel like running it again just for that but I suppose I could do the Weekly at the lowest level and that should be pretty quick.



I bought engram 2nd (big mistake) after I had already bought Sunbreakers...  And guess what I got... :wall:


Sunbreakers!  With a -25 roll compared to the one that Xur was selling...


I can't decide if I want to knock out 3 quick VOG for the week and be done until reset.  I do still have a hard raid with my titan to do on Crota but I'm not motivated to do so.


I started Dying Light last night and I'm having fun with it.  Maybe I can kick this constantly playing Destiny habit now! :D

Got my first Crota kill on hard running sword.  Did it with 3 randos and 2 friends.  So I'm good to go being sword bearer on hard mode now :D


1 time I got too greedy and paid for it.  After that though I got over trying to get too many hits.  First time we got him to enrage, I killed his ass!

Okay, I guess I need someone to explain this to me because Plan C seemed to be be the most boring of the exotics.  I think it was the 2nd exotic drop I ever got and I used it for a while and was unimpressed.  The perks seem very vanilla and I got better results out of some of the other legendary FRs.  Once I got Pocket Infinity and Light of the Abyss, I just broke C down for the exotic shard.


Just looked at Xur's wares...boooooo.  Is it me, or does it seem like we've seen this exact same lineup already this month?

dot is right that it is more of a PvP weapon but I feel it is the best fusion other than Vex for PvE.  I switch weapons on the fly a lot so the quick charge perk is good for someone like me.  Plus the damn thing hits so hard.  I love the range on the gun as well.  I didn't shard my 2nd one I got last night from Atheon yet so I may or may not keep it depending on need for shards.



I didn't even pay attention to when the game was, but as usual with these things in order to cater to the East Coast they are usually way too early for me. Like by the time I settle down to watch something like that it is usually over ;). I guess I figured it would be much earlier than that. I'm only mildly interested in it this year, so it doesn't matter to me either way. Maybe if it is a blowout we can start a bit earlier. Being in the Pacific NW everyone is a Seahawks fan which just drives me nuts (because I grew up a Niners fan). So I don't think I can stomach another Seahawks romp and would rather be playing Destiny or even cleaning my garage than watching that!

Are we doing Normal or Hard? If it is just Normal then I think we can do the whole thing in an hour. If it is Hard, one of us should get Vendetta's Oracles CP if he isn't running it with us.

I still have the CP and am always more than happy to pass it along if you guys want it.  I can't wait till my buddy finally gets his Fate Bringer so I can just recycle the Gorgon CP and not have to do oracles or templar again. :)




So yeah onto Xur.... Nothing but hot garbage, even the 1 upgrade I can do was shit.  Young Ahamkara's Spine's upgrade is atrocioius. I would lose about 25 discipline upgrading my 30 light ones.  So yep not happening!  I wish you could buy the engrams with strange coin.  Only had enough for 1 engram since I went apeshit last week on helmet engrams.  Again got some good luck.  Got Claws of Ahamkara for the Warlock.  :)   Man my RNG was pretty much perfect this week. :D

I'm hung up in leveling due to warlock Hadronic whatever. Is the best method to glimmer farm and buy armor to break down?


That or doing Vanguard Roc strikes since you can get Marks while doing it as well as blue engrams to level up cryptarch and then shard for materials.  I'm going back and forth with my Titan right now since plasteel is preventing me from leveling up my raid gear.  Currently I'm glimmer farming because I had to buy rare fusion rifles to break down for my pocket infinity bounty.  After I get decent amount of glimmer (around 8-10k), I'll go back to running strikes I think since glimmer farming is so damn boring.

How do you guys find 2-3+ crews to run raids with....I'm having a hard time finding 1, I know I got help from some of you CAGs recently  and I'm very appreciative but to find a crew to run stuff weekly seems almost impossible specially with my small windows every night.   So jelly...I'm going to try to see if my luck improves with Dads of Destiny.

For me at least I have 3 groups I can run with.  io's if they need someone, I've been filling in.  I have 2 friends that I've known IRL since Halo 2 (we are all from the same hometown).  And then I have a pool of about 8-10 that I've met through mutual friends.  Funny thing is, quite a few of them are from the achievement community and still can't stop playing Destiny despite getting all the achievements already. :D


I love playing shooters with my 2 IRL buddies.  We get each other's play styles and have so much time spent playing together it usually doesn't matter who the other 3 are.  :)
