They can't increase the light level of it otherwise the trophy for completing it would be locked behind buying the expansions. I'm sure they tried to do that before Curse of Osiris came out but there was a huge backlash.

You’re absolutely right. What a carry on, and for something as daft as Trophies.

Only prestige nightfall is updated. Higher difficulty base and you can add like 5 modifiers too

There was kickback on the PC, too, so not just over trophies. It would lock people who bought the base game alone, out of content they previously had, because they didn't buy the expansion.

Game is definitely in a much, much better place than it was at launch or with Curse of Osiris. The exotic buffs to stuff like Graviton Lance, Skyburner's Oath, Crimson etc. actually make those exotics feel powerful unlike before. I see according to the roadmap there's a big exotic armour change coming and going by the titan stuff I have there's definitely some that need buffed.

They've already responded to the criticism of the heroic strike drops being 5-10 levels lower than the recommended level for the activity and are changing it so you get a 360 drop roughly every 3-5 heroic strike completions which is baby steps I guess.

Haven't been able to properly try the new Escalation Protocol activity yet since it's recommended 370 light :roll: It doesn't look anywhere near as fun as the horde stuff of Prison of Elders or Archon's Forge though (I really miss them).

Can see myself playing this for the milestones every week more often than I did the month or so after launch and after Curse of Osiris but there's still a lot of stuff that needs sorted with the big expansion later this year. Selectable strikes, strike-specific loot, an actual decent horde activity, NEW ENEMIES THAT AREN'T RESKINS (I don't think we'll get these until D3 since Warmind heavily hints that the next expansion will be Hive-focused) and more PvE activities for starters.

Agree with this. It's improved a lot but there's still plenty to be done. For the moment I'm happy to keep coming back to work on exotic masterworks and work towards Escalation Protocol. Hopefully they can keep up the positive momentum.

Destiny 2's new Iron Banner Exotic emote costs $10

New emote that can only be purchased directly from the Eververse store with cash.
Cannot be obtained any way besides a direct cash purchase.

It's available for direct purchase for 1100 silver, which works out to $10 in real money. Sorry, bright dust not accepted.

Some of my clanmates have emblems that cost $50, so I expect to see plenty of these about

Cosmetic items so it doesn't really bother me.

Bit of a newb question, but where do you get silver coins from? Are you supposed to buy with real money?

*Edit* Just did a search. :dread:

Yes?

You say that, but isn't that the kind of attitude that caused the eververse to ruin a lot of the loot?

It's the kind of attitude that made shaders single use only items.

Which loot specifically? I'm not particularly bothered about emotes, ships, shaders or weapon ornaments since they pop up in the engrams you get every time you fill the XP bar after level 20. A few months ago they added some Eververse stuff to the pool of loot that drops in most activities and with the Warmind update they added a new thing that gives you a bunch of Eververse items from a specific selection with your first bright engram every week after the reset, as well as the other stuff.

That's exactly my point. It's a loot game, so by taking away rewards from gameplay and making them paid it effectively gives you less loot to hunt.

Saying that I wouldn't mind if the content updates were free, like Fornite or Overwatch, but they're not, so it's not like it's even funding content updates, it's just lining Activision's pockets.

Didn't realise you were forced to buy them.

You're not 'forced' to buy anything.

But that's not really relevant to what I was saying anyway.

If you have less loot to chase in a game that is designed around chasing loot then it makes the game worse.

Example:

do a bunch of really hard challenges and get this cool iron banner emote which shows everyone what you've achieved

Or

Buy the emote with money, which shows everyone you have too much spare income.

The first option sounds much more beneficial to the game to me as it makes the item more socially relevant in the game space and gives players more reason to want to play your game.

If they were selling exclusive exotic weapons and armour then that would be something to actually get wound up about.

Well that's like, your opinion man.

But I for one would not be okay if they made all the armour puke green and then offered nice shaders for sale with the excuse of "you don't have to buy them" because like it or not cosmetics are a big part of the game, the character UI is entirely designed around them.

I still remember Pete's yellow and green shader from destiny 1 he wore for the entire duration of that game :lol:
