Last night I successfully ran the lamps in CE solo on both normal and hard for the first time. I haven't tried that in a long time. Didn't get any good drops tho.

I just ran them on hard on Friday night for my first time in a long time as well.  Miss doing that, though I might be doing it more since a few of my friends need good exotics still (Gjally of course and 1 needs an IceBreaker)



Made 2 Lighthouse trips yesterday.  Got 2 Scholars like I wanted but.... They were duplicates.  Another Arc and another Solar.  :cry:

Well they actually did it.  Never thought they would....


Gjallarhorn getting a damage nerf.  Never thought they would have the balls to do it.




Anyways... the tuning is pretty much PvP good, PvE bad.


-Thorn is getting a nerf.  I abso Fuck 'ing love this.  This is what I wanted most.  Now those Thorn abusing d'bags have to actually be precise and not spam, the burn got nerfed, and best of all the range is nerfed since you can't get two shotted any longer. 


-Shotgun nerfs to shot package and rangefinder.  Thank you again Bungie.  Now I can Last Word the shit out of shotgunners even more than I do now :D


-Final Round is essentially a PvE perk now.  To get the damage buff you have to hit a crit.  No more bullshit in Trials with these "1337" snipers.  Love that they did this.  Being a person that doesn't abuse Final Round, this is fantastic for Trials especially. 


-Auto Rifle buff.  Might be time to dust off the good ole Suros.  :D



Bad Things:


-Black Hammer.... They pretty much have killed this gun for PvE now.  White nail now takes ammo out of your reserve ammo.  A slight increase of mag size won't alleviate this.


-IceBreaker... Personally this doesn't bother me as I think IB is quite overrated honestly.  Recharge time to 8 sec instead of 5.  Only scenario I can foresee is on Oracles.  Other than that maybe on a Juggler week?  Not a big deal to me.


-Last Word range nerf on top of the HC range nerf already.  I guess we will see about this.  I do aim down sights at mid to close range but I nail headshots so unless it absolutely kills it, I might opt for Red Death or Suros.

Yep. People don't believe me when I try to explain that special & heavy are from normal Crota only. Primaries are from hard Crota.


Got a Mida, the WRONG hunter boots (green glowing crap...forgot name), and a Suros. 3 shards.


I can't wait to get the chest pieces. Glad they still have hand cannon ammo on them, though I probably wouldn't use them in Trials, ironically.

Dance Machines!  Which actually are fun to play with in PvP along with a fast shooting scout like MIDA.  Perhaps the game is trying to tell you something ;)


One of my buddies is after the Radiant Dance Machines!  I tried mine out with one of my Legendary fast shooting scouts and I had some fun playing that way.  Ran Gjallarhorn on that loadout just cuz. ;)

Damn you i'll been trying to get a solar dregs pride to complete one of each element for hand cannons.  This stupid game gave me two void ones!  The Bone of Eaos is the bomb that quad jump!

If it makes you feel any better, I got a shit perk for Dregs :bomb:


I just want one void scout.  From PoE or ToO.... I would prefer the Trials one because the Scholar is so money but at this point I want one so I can get rid of one of these Word of Crotas.

Nothing of note from the nightfall.  Strange Coin and 2 shitty Legendary Weapons.  I just want the Bones of Eos... Not asking much game.  Or a Celestial Nighthawk with a better roll than the shitty one I have :bomb:


I did get another set of Ahamkara's Claw from a Legendary.  Of course/Thankfully a shittier roll.  I am running so low on Hadronic Essence because I kept getting better rolled gear for my Warlock.


Did a 35 Skolas last night and got a Dreg's Pride II with Solar.  So I have 2 Solar HC's now :)


Ended up squeezing in another Skolas this morning and didn't get anything.  I don't really need to do anything aside from my planned 3rd Skolas run tonight.  Still hoping for a Wolves Leash w/Void :drool:  Though I should probably run 32 and 34 on my Titan to get my last elder cipher done. :)



Also io, this is the gaming monitor that I purchased that we were discussing last night.  Love this thing.  It made all the difference for me in PvP.  Virtually no input lag. :D

And this is the 24" version:

Got all my triumphs already.  Ended up getting the gold chests because I was bored as hell one week.  All of them seem quite easy to be honest.  The emblem does look cool.


Speaking of look cool...




So sexy. :drool:   Going to be getting that for sure.

So I think I'm becoming a PvP addict now... Said I was going to go to bed before reset and ended up going to bed like 2.5 hours later... :wall:


Got all my IB bounties done though.  Well except the stupid melee one, which sucks being a hunter.  I may just forget that one this time around.  Unless anyone has suggestions.  I guess I could throwing knife?

Yeah, I ignore that since there is no way I have any room for that stuff. How can you also collect the faction armor on top of all the other stuff? It just isn't possible.

I haven't had an issue with armor at all.  I don't keep doubles of anything unless it is a pure INT or pure DIS roll.  Split rolls it just depends on how your character is set up spec wise.  Even with all the IB, Kell, Exotics, VoG, Crota, Watchers, and Trials gear, I still have over half my vault space left.  I mean I am having an issue with Helmets on all three and arms on my Hunter but otherwise it is a non-issue.  I value the armor for the exact reasons Broly said, the different stat rolls can be much better than the ones you can buy.  Perks to me are more important than roll if you don't have the exact perks to spec your guy right.  Like I have arms on everyone with fast scout and fast hand cannon reloads and of course chests with Special Weapon (and specifically Sniper) and HC ammo.  Boots with heavy of course.  After getting those perks with right stat rolls you can afford to be picky for a specific type of one.  :)


Now I just need to spec my Warlock to my liking.

Man the nightfall is a piece of cake.  Only really have to watch out and not get caught in crossfire between the Acolytes since they fire void.  Just Gjally the shit out of Phogoth and boom done.


Got Truth and wait for it....

I just want the Bones of Eos or Eternal Warrior dammit!


On the bright side, I got a Thermisto shader today! :D




EDIT:  So I have my Hunter with perfect gear setup when I Gunsling and near perfect when Bladedancing.  No strength at all, 100% Intellect and Discipline, More ammo perks for Hand Cannon, Sniper, Heavy Weapon.  Also have fast reload with Hand Cannon and I can run my Symbiote helm for 4 Golden Gun Shots :)


Now I need to get better stat roll gear for my Warlock.  My Titan is also damn near perfect for PvP.

Doing some editing and putting new info in the OP for Taken King.  Work in progress. :)





Anyone else here wear gamer themed shirts?  I only have a couple Halo ones and Mass Effect but I love some of the logo'ed ones on the Bungie store.  Debating getting at least 1 and maybe a poster to hang up.

Man we were just on last night. We won 24 straight games without a loss. :D

I think getting the Lighthouse once ignited something in me and my 2 buddies.  We've been PvP'ing a lot this week and none of us really give a shit about PoE right now it seems.  I think we are shooting for 2 Lighthouse trips this weekend :)


Oh and I finally got this last night.





Now if I could get that damn Nineveh and/or Tyre shader, I could move on and run 2 people on New Monarchy.

So since my team in Trials didn't lose a game, I didn't know what would happen with my boon forgiving a loss, well it appears that I still have the boon so maybe it was just tied in with the new card I purchased from Brother Vance after we went to the lighthouse.  :)


The Taken King CE is gamestop exclusive it appears:




Ran all my nightfalls and wow.... my RNG kills me sometimes....

-Nothing Mantacles...

-Nothing Mantacles again... :bomb:

-Strange Coin x11



So last night since we didn't have much time to do Trials, nor were both of my buddies on, we decided to smash crota's face in.  3 runs Deathsinger and Crota:


-Red Death

-No Land Beyond

-My 2nd Crux



Crux & Gjally were from the same drop.  And yeah check my video out.  Sorry simo.  :cry:



And as for Trials, I'm never playing defensively ever again.  My buddies and I were very aggressive and obviously it worked well for us.  Helps that we have played MP FPS since Halo 2 together though. ;)

Yay! Lighthouse finally! Steamrolled kids. My buddies and I didn't lose a round until our 4th game. Heck we didn't even lose a single match.

Got Jewel of Osiris! With Arc though. Not gonna complain though. :D

After switching from VoC to Fang I have become used to not having the full auto perk on my scout rifles.  In fact, now even when I use my 365 VoC I find myself pulling the trigger with each shot instead of taking advantage of the perk, lol.

So uh I honestly had no idea VoC fired in full auto mode until like around when Crota came out.  :oops:   Part of it was excitement of getting the gun, it was my 3rd ever raid gun (I had gotten Praedyth's Revenge on the same run and Epiloge was my first one).  Anyways I had always fired my scouts by pulling the trigger for each shot so I just got used to that.  I love having the fast reload when you shoot out the clip in the Fang.  I like to constantly DPS and always go for headshots so that gun suits me very well in PvE.



^ Heh, you sound like me on the Trials stuff there ;). If they continue their trend towards favoring PvP I wouldn't be surprised by stuff like that!

And oh yeah, there's no way we get a free Raid. I don't think they ever intended to mean that we'd get a raid later for HoW. They meant all along that it will be part of the next paid DLC. Their full quote should have been "Yeah, sorry, we didn't have the time to put a Raid into House of Wolves. But don't worry, when you pay $40 for the next DLC we'll probably almost certainly include one in there, so that makes up for it!".

And of course no new Vault space since PS3/360 is holding us back on that apparently. It is not so much the space but the rendering of the menu/icons - more of them would just kill those systems. But perhaps they can do a paging thing (ie, multiple pages of Vault space). That might be a workaround. I don't care if it is slow as crap on the last-gen, just do it!

Yeah, that ain't happening ;).

Yeah they never straight up said we would get a raid in HoW.  I don't get why so many people are so salty about it.  (Also I'm not implying you are ;) , it is more of a general statement).  Everyone just assumed we would between the data mining, the "leak" and just assumption since the last two endgame activities were both raids.  I thought I would be on board with PoE but it is kind of getting boring.  I really wish that the conditions were random on 32, 34, 35 like it is in the 28.  That would make things more interesting.  I hate the rewards you get though.  Judgement Chances are complete shit since the primary weapons don't have a burn type.... And it has just become a Gally fest on Skolas for the most part. 




Also anyone have Gorgon CP?  I have a few friends who need it.  If not, I think we will be running VoG for some people to get Fatebringers so I will have it that way if nobody has it.
