The last boss in the DLC was really cool, much better than the one in the main game.

I see some people on reddit are getting refunds for the digital base game because the DLC raised the required power level of the prestige raid and stuff and you need to do that for one of the achievements and to get that exotic shotgun. You're locked out of that without buying the DLC.

If you're talking about gearing up - what level drops are at is based on your highest possible power, not your equipped power. So you can ignore that push

I assumed drops were based on your character level, as most of what I get seems to be my level or occasionally one higher. Good to know what actually determines them.

I just mean that your character's power level is determined by the gear you have equipped, so you feel like you need to have your highest rated weapon on, even if it means sacrificing rate of fire.

Unrelated, but it looks like anyone without the expansion is now locked out of end game content that they would have had access to a week ago:

That is total bollocks.
It makes me wonder if people who paid for the DLC would moan if base players were able to get gear at the new level cap.
I would have no problem with it as they are only powering up stuff they already have so they can do the endgame stuff that they already paid for.

It looks like players without the DLC can buy the DLC items, even if they can't reach the new level cap.

Most of the engrams have stopped increasing in strength awfully early :?
Well, that’s that, then. Feel a bit stiffed for £16 or whatever.

I was initially tempted with this on launch, but all I've seen from people who have reached the endgame is criticism of how poorly that aspect has been done. Is there any point buying this at the moment?

It really depends on who you play this with. If you join the grcade crew you'll have a great time as we're a generally relaxed bunch who just play for fun with no pressure.
As a single player it's fair to middling with the endgame stuff being ok for a while but it does become kind of pointless once max power is reached.

On balance I'd say it's worth it but it certainly doesn't have the longevity of Destiny 1.

The PVP has now become a case of use the Fire gun or lose.

Yep, they make a gun they themselves say is broken and then make it so pretty much everyone can get it.

Both normal and Presteige Raid now at 300 - and drop the same loot.

Prest Nightfall is CoO only

Night/Trials for all - unless it’s a CoO map week

Faction Rally was going to be CoO only!

Yeah I thought I misread that faction rally bit at first :lol:

EDIT: Iron Banner was going to be CoO too?! Imagine the rage that would've caused.

They're running into problems because most games expacs, are required for endgame content. But they introduce new endgame content (including Destiny, I wasn't here for year 1 though but I assume Crota/PoE did) rather that just upping the difficulty/level of existing and locking players out.

They've now answer complaints from people who had base game content taken from them, but now there's backlash from those that did buy the DLC (and "got to keep" content they'd already paid for) saying it's made their purchase mean less.

Christ Bungie.

This has well and truelly peeved me.

Only day off until Christmas Day and was expecting to have things bashed out on the reset but turns out reset is now 5pm.

Couple that with this bull.

I usually just brush these things off but maintenance seems more frequent and for extended periods compared to the first?
