You can safely shard all eververse armour pieces. One you earn them they are unlocked, and will be available as ornaments on armour next season.

Thanks again....we finished The Forsaken Story...thought it was excellent, laid out....ending left a few questions. If anything we both agree Zavala needs to give it up and hand over leadership to Ikora….not so much as 50 Glimmer from him but instead a lot of complaining....

We now have all sort of stuff to do...find stuff to get into The Dreaming City, The Black Armory, some invite to The Leviathan, finding parts to Ace of Spades, haven't touched Strikes, Heroic, Nightfall....think we're at 536 and 543 now. Advice on where to go first and do?

The Black Armory weapons are some of the best in the game. Also, the armour sets looks really nice. Invite to the Levitathan is for the raid. The Ace of Spades is a pretty decent hand cannon, and is used a lot in the Crucible. The letest season stuff (Opulence) is pretty fun. The Menagerie is a good mode for crafting weapons and armour.

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

We did what we had to open The Dreaming City last night getting those shards/pieces on some Awoken Quest but called it there.....we took a look at our Pursuit List and we're almost getting that feeling of being overwhelmed We also opened that "Quest for 690"...I guess the deal with the Barge in Nessus. with The Chalice which we don't really understand. We did some strikes to complete some quest....feel like head is about to explode keeping up with decisions on going left, right, backward or forward......we're around 655-665.

Update...we're now around 680-685 doing the stuff for Werner on The Barge...getting all the treasure Maps. However is there something you can do with the duplicate Runes for The Chalice? Sadly I got (3) of one and (2) of another. Friend has (2) each of two. Also I picked up two of these "Engrams" from Werner that ups the chances of getting a Rune for Strike, Crucible and Gambit....but doesn't say how and when to use it?

You will get tons of duplicates. There are only nine different types of runes, and will unlock as you upgrade your chalice. The runes can be combined in different ways to get specific items when you run the Menagerie. There are guides that should the different combinations available. The Runefinder buff lasts for 4 hours and increases the drop chance of runes when doing activities. You can use them by pressing square on the item in your inventory.

Thank you Roy....

We hit 695 last night finally venturing into The Dreaming City but we still don't understand the Ascendant Challenge and how that works. We just got our feet wet going around and doing Public Events, The Dark Monastery, A Lost Sector....and called it there....we did get our first 700+ item. So now with the reset where do we need to go and do? We're not to keen on jumping in The Menagerie the first time with random matchmaking so we make see if some friends can walk us thru a bit.

Congrads on hitting it...we hit 708 & 710 yesterday.

We finally tried The Menagerie and got our butts kicked. It was the first time for us and had a friend go thru but he said at least two of the others it had to be their first or 2nd time based on on all the trouble we had. My Titan has (8) Resilience and it was coming from 360° everywhere we went. Plus we kept asking..."Where are all the supers?"......and maybe our guns are not the best but we were not doing much damage anywhere we went. I was using a sub-machine gun kinetic at 705 and a auto-rifle with Arc at 688. (Arc was the Burn). We just know that was the most we've died than in the last two weeks of play.....and one of the random would sit there and Tea-Bag me and my friend instead of picking us up and then leave....we like to go again but not sure on with randoms....

I'd probably be over 710 if I just used whatever powerful random gear was given me, but instead, I've been slowly inching up, upgrading/infusing my favorite gear that I've grown accustomed to, even master-classing some of them, instead of just using whatever higher light gear I come across.

I've returned to PC with cross-save, wanted to keep my PS4 characters, just a much better experience overall.

Loading into destinations, menu navigation is just way faster on PC, tried a few strikes on PS4 the other day and it was like your character was stuck in the mud.

I'm swapping back and forth. The menu differences stand out of course, as does speed of loading. Maybe I'd have a harder time if my TV and monitor weren't 60hz, but at this point switching between 60 and 30 hasn't really been an issue. And I will never enjoy using a keyboard for playing games. So I'm still using a controller.

As soon as the next expansion comes out I’m jumping over to PC.

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

Anyone playing Shadowkeep?

I'm hearing it's more like "shadow... keep you out!", as going FTP has killed their servers and everyone's getting booted off. Which is no surprise, as the first day of any new content has always been a massive cluster-fuck. And I'm sure going FTP for the old content makes it exponentially worse.

Apparently they just took everything offline for emergency maintenance.

LOL, yeah, I guess "emergency maintenance" just a day after launch is exponentially worse!

Have things cleared up or is it still a waiting game to log in? I want to pick up the expansion today but not if I can’t play it.

Game was fine for me last night, several hours after it went down for everyone. Haven't tried to login today yet.

They cleared it up later in the day - it was fine for me at around 9pm Pacific time.

As far as the expansion... seems fine, I guess. Didn't play all too much, so still haven't figured out the new mechanics as to how gear now works. But I found the moon location to be sorta meh... Just feels like a lazy regurgitation of the first game's assets.

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

Still haven't got the chance to try it. I wasn't home since Tuesday and that's when it came out. I'm wondering which class should I choose when I'll start (I never played the original Destiny). I'm thinking either Titan or Warlock. Titan would seem pretty cool because it's the closest thing to Spartans from Halo and I have a nack for sci-fi armor. On the other hand Warlock may feature gameplay that's more fun since you can use various powers.

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

I did the first mission or two on the moon (plus all admin content in the tower). The stats on armor are a lot. I’m going to needs to better understand how they affect performance (haven’t tried to change anything).

Meanwhile, they literally recreated the moon from D1 with some adjustments. After a few minutes if running around it’s crazy how familiar everything is.

My friends and I paid up for the full season pass. However, I think our interest is faltering. They’re going to need to make some serious changes to keep us all hooked past next fall. Of course at that point they’ll probably launch D3 for the PS5 and suck us right back in!

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

I made the jump from PS4 to PC and ho-boy it is really something else. it feels like a completely different game.

It's been about a year since I spent any real time in Destiny, so I loaded onto Mars just to mess around and get my feet under me again. I have a quest to do there, which may or may not be part of the new expansion, and I've been completing some of the random events too. I'm looking forward to doing a strike or some more of the story missions tonight.

I'm not as overwhelmed by the new systems as I thought I'd be, although I've only played for a couple hours so maybe I just haven't run into that many yet. The quest log hasn't always been this bad, has it? Because it's hot trash at the moment.

Yeah, I agree with lopper.

But on the positive side, I was able to get my light from 750 to 850 in record time - they keep throwing higher level gear at you, and upgrading existing gear is quicker because getting the upgrade modules is far easier than the previous system was.
