Man this grind is insane, and I kinda love it. But I do feel really bad for casual players. It's going to take forever to get to a respectable power for end game.

Played quite a bit, got to level 50 with 501 light (while being able to infuse my favorite exotics). Got two more barons to take out - lots of side-content stacked up.

Theres a pretty big cheese in the blind well right now. If you use telesto each bolt counts as a kill. Seems really useful for speeding up that grind for more sparks of light.

Once again proving that Telesto is the Besto. Chase and I finished a tier 2 yesterday. I was lucky enough to have the seed drop for me, but Chase wasn't as lucky.

I've had 3 exotics drop so far, but they have all been year 1 gear.

Re: Destiny 2 - 9/8/17 (PS4,XB1,PC)

I enjoy the bow, and it seems a bit OP (easy/quick to aim, 1-shot kills), so I'm sure they're going to nerf it soon.

Don't do too much Crucible, but for me, the best exotic Auto Rifle to use with the Actium War Rig, in every instance, is Hard Light. I've tried them all, and that seems to work best for me.

yeah, those ricochet rounds work pretty good for people that can't hit their shot

DISCLAIMER: I have never actually played with slop so I truly don't know if he has bad aim

I have terrible aim!

In games anyhow, in real life, I'm actually a really good shot - rifles and bows!
I've been told I have a natural talent for it, I just don't particularly enjoy it like I do in games.

Re: Destiny 2 - 9/8/17 (PS4,XB1,PC)

I got the free version from the PSN store. Are any of you still playing anywhere near a level I could pop in?

I liked the original's story and had fun playing with you all. I just got tired of the grinding, so much so I laid down $30 for Iron whatever and couldn't even play it because my level wasn't high enough and I just wasn't having fun grinding.

Oh boy...

I got some sour news for you man. The game IS a grind - especially at the top. It's actually pretty easy to level up through playing the campaign, but getting your light level up through infusing gear is purely grinding, basically doing the same things over and over. Now, most people who are fans don't mind this, as they really enjoy the gameplay/mechanics, which makes it okay to grind, and getting a rare gun becomes all the more gratifying. But if you're not that into the gameplay, and already finding the grind to be tedious - it's not going to get any better.

Re: Destiny 2 - 9/8/17 (PS4,XB1,PC)

The gameplay is fun, the worlds are beautiful, the storyline is compelling. The grinding sucks. Its why I stopped playing Borderlands 2. When I realized it was as much about curating and upgrading and tinkering as the actual plot, moreso even, I just stopped. Hit that wall with Destiny.

Hmm. We'll see. Would be nice to play with you all again.

You gotta ask yourself if you enjoy the gameplay enough to sustain you through the grind.

And for me that is a resounding no.

Re: Destiny 2 - 9/8/17 (PS4,XB1,PC)

Finished the new campaign. Not bad. I have zero interest in Cayde's pistol - not a fan of pistols (remember, I have shitty aim). I have been loving the bow - I seem to aim pretty well with that. I'm at light 505 - I'd be higher, but I can't find any goddamned masterwork cores - I already dismantled everything I have to get me enough for infusing up to 505, but now I'm fresh out, with no way to get more - and buying more than one at a time from Spider is prohibitively expensive.

The Ace of Spades is probably one of the best hand cannons in the game. You really feel over powered when using it.

Regarding the masterwork cores, there is a consumable that can drop when sharding legendary items that can give you a core from a boss/major kill (matterweave, or something)

Got the PVP portion on Chaperone done last night. Much more forgiving then D1 5% for a kill and only a loss of 1% on death. Once a element is done, its locked in and cant drop.

I remember the quest was so hard in D1 that a lot of people didn't get it done until you were able to cheese it in SRL.
