Just did the Raid. Looks lovely but is needlessly complicated for those that never got round to doing a raid back on Destiny 1 (such as me). How anyone could know their way around the underbelly of the Leviathan (like some of the fireteam I was with) is beyond me. I'm hoping for a Raid that is a little less oblique next time.

If you're a Titan and bought Sweet Business from Xur last week, he's selling the Actium War Rig this week :datass:

Yeah it's weird how they have basically soft rebooted Destiny and made most of the stuff appealing to newcomers. Perhaps at the cost of annoying veterans who were used to Year 3 of D1 and it's myriad of convulted systems stacked up on each other (honestly, go back and check out your old character's inventory).

But then the raid is definitely not an introduction to the raid system. I really like it, but it's definitely better as something different to the more combat-heavy older raids rather than your first experience of one.

I like the raid and the mechanics. Not having a series of dps encounters is nice (I’m looking at you Kings Fall).

Got all the raid armour on my hunter yesterday and only one bit left on my warlock. When I level a titan it’s not disappointing that I can carry on running the Leviathan for tokens on all characters to get my titan gear.

I see in the weekly update they acknowledged the problem of loading into empty instances too often. That's a pain in the arse whenever I want to pop on to do the Flashpoint and there's strawberry float all people there to help with heroic events.

I've noticed that a lot as well.
When the flashpoint is on Titan with just 2 events it's a real pain and almost not worth doing.

I just keep fast travelling to the same place until there is someone there. Also if you finish quickly, fast travel again to try for a two for one.

I always do this and it’s a lot quicker.

First expansion trailer:



Destiny 2 – Expansion I: Curse of Osiris, takes place after the conclusion of the Destiny 2 campaign where you are dispatched to Mercury on a quest to find Osiris, the most powerful Warlock to have ever lived, to discover the answers humanity needs to fight back against the Vex.

Curse of Osiris adds a new chapter to the world of Destiny 2, expanding the universe by adding an all-new cinematic story with new and returning characters, a new destination to explore, Mercury and its Infinite Forest, a new social space to visit called the Lighthouse, new missions, new strikes, new raid content, new free roam activities. a world quest to complete, and more.


Out December 5th.

I'm going to give this a rest for a few weeks while I rent a few One X games. I'll be back for the DLC though as I have the season pass.

It's very uninspiring at the moment and I hope they do something to fix it with the level cap increase.
This may also just be me but they also need to make it less easy to get everything as I had everything I wanted in a short time and I didn't do a raid completion and not that many nightfalls.
As always more content is a must and making the adventures more random would help a lot. Maybe if they could create an even harder version of public events it could spice those up as well for a while.

The token system is wank competed to just buying stuff with legendary shards like the first game, especially with the terrible drop rates. I’ve got hundreds of them sitting in my inventory with no use other than buying mods which I don’t need right now.

Noice!

If anybody else who haven’t done the Rat’s King quest and I’d suggest it’s time to do it now as this week’s Nightfall seems pretty simple. Dinoric, me and my mate finished with in between six-seven minutes left on the clock. :datass:
