I understand the game encourages you to join different factions with second character.

They've suggested it'll repeat in future

2 runs at nightfall tonight. What a joyless unrewarding experience that was.

The nightfall is just not worth doing. All the enemies are super tanky and after the fun of last weeks grenadefest it's just a chore.
I was hoping the time glitch may help but I honestly don't think it does as the lack of a third player makes progress so slow that even getting time back doesn't help.

They've capped the max time you can add now so proper run with 3 getting most of the anomalies is probably better than getting 'all' but with 2 progressing

Iron Banner next week!

https://www.bungie.net/en/Explore/Detail/News/46381

4v4 control
No power level consideration
Tokens to Saladin not Shaxx for RNG engram
Daily/Season Milestones (sound similar to bounties maybe? Presumably give more tokens)

Armor rewards in link - no mention of weapons

(Edit: And the prestige raid won't 'help you character progression' which I assume means no higher power rewards - just RNG cosmetics)

That titan IB armour is nice. Wonder what light level the gear drops at, ft it's higher than your light level and ends up being a better way of progression than PvE stuff just like in Destiny 1 they can strawberry float off.

I'm expecting it'll be like any other token grind - 5 levels below your "true" level

They responded to complaints about the lack of decent endgame content (either in scope, interest or rewards)

My challenge to every Guardian is to look to the human element in Destiny 2 to fuel your appetite for ultimate re-playability. The ultimate loot is the friendships that can grow out of a game like this. There will be more gear to add to your character (next week, even). The rewards that I’m talking about are the people in the community that thrives in this game. If you let them, they’ll make your hobby as a light-dealing hero on a starside campaign for glory even better.

Friends are the real loot.

I still quite enjoy public events as with a bunch of people they can get rather chaotic.

So, what's the point this time?
The armour while looking ok which I don't care about (as can be seen by all my items having a different and completely random shader) will have exactly the same stats and abilities as any other.

You say that, but my group used LFG on D1 and we ended up grouping with a right prick, and we ended up going to his wedding nearly a year later :lol:

We also then found out he posts here at GRcade albeit rarely, and is also Chalky's cousin :lol: Small world.

lol no one has even mentioned Xur today. Apparently he sold that hunter helmet two weeks ago? :lol:

Vigilance Wing seems pretty gooseberry fool. What is it with the exotics in this game?

A pulse rifle that can three burst (two burst up close) is gooseberry fool?

The thing is probably you writing then off before you've even tried them.

The only objectively bad exotic weapons I've used are the grenade launchers

Used it while completing the Flashpoint and doing a few strikes. Doesn't seem anything to get excited about. Seems like a PvP exotic rather than a PvE one so I'm not arsed. Looks horrible too.

Striggling to think of a new exotic in this game I've used that's as good as ones from the first game.

I don't use an exotic weapon at all as I have legendary stuff I like.
I would kind of like the rocket launcher with cluster bombs but it's from doing strikes and I can't be bothered.
