I hope they don't keep the "mod system" as this would, for me, keep me away.  I enjoyed the random rolls on guns, as frustrating as it was, way more than the mod system.  I personally never understood the mod system.  I would rather have actual perks of the gun that make it good/bad than adding a mod to do the same thing.  Making a gun whatever you want it to be will be no better off than back when we spent tons of glimmer re-rolling the perks to get the ones we wanted.  Having mods to make the gun with *outlaw, LIC, rifled barrel or whatever will just have the same affect as everyone and their twin brother will have and use the same gun..  Bringing us back full circle to where we are currently.  The only way, IMO, to make the game have extended life, is to bring back random rolls.  The great thing about D1 was the same gun used by you (having a god roll) was better than mine with 2/3 of the god rolled perks.  Why make everything the same?  It would be the same end result as you have now with everyone using the same guns with the same perks.  No way for any one gun to stand out. 

 

So the easiest way for the game to turn full swing and bring back players (among a list of other things) is to have random rolls.  It's a game.  I understand not everyone has 20 hours a week to dedicate to the game but why should you restrict those who do have the time to advance and have the potential to get better gear/rolls on weapons than the guy who has 3 hours a week to play.  IMO it all goes back to the participation trophy generation that we are living in.  We want everyone to have the same rewards and not allow people to actually work for it.  Until this system goes away, this game will continue to be what it is now, a huge disappointment.

I agree this would be better.
It will still take a whole lot of endgame-content to keep me playing.
In D1 I could easily start with 45-60min. in the forge to get my perfekt saladins vigil, and then go and play in the arena, maybe grind a bit for some exotic engrams. The dreadnaught was nice, hidden chests with small puzzles, summoningpit, hunting for hidden ghosts and a pretty good raid.

 

now I do the weekly stuff once in a while and then I switch to another game! They added Mercury which brings nothing besides a public event, adventures (which isn't fun) and a WHOLE lot of grinding for weapons that I'm not going to use..It's like Im forced to play the same 2-3 strikes to get glimmer.. I used to do strikes because I liked them, not because I had nothing else to do.

I got all the Mercury guns and there is only 2 I use on a regular basis and that's the hand cannon(kinetic) and the auto rifle , the rest are in the vault . As far as the strikes go there is only one I really like (Savathun Song ) the rest are just meh IMO. and I hate the Exodus Down Strike !!!!

That little quest is really the only thing thats kept me playing Destiny. 

 

How bad is it getting those what ever they are things to drop in Nightfall?  I need the two required to continue the quest.

What things are you talking about ?? you don't need to do Nightfall to get the stuff for the Mercury guns you can do Heroic strikes and Crucible , if ti's the little red blooms or whatever they are called , the drop after Heroic strikes about every 2 or 3 .

There is an element that can only be received from Nightfalls and the Raid for one of the guns. 

Fossilized Hermaion Blossom.  (Lost Prophecy, Another Verse)

You can get the Fossilized Hermaion Blossom from doing Heroic Strikes , I have yet to do the Nightfall and I have all the Lost Prophecy guns and the Sagira ghost shell . It doesn't drop after every one but it will drop after every so often .

Darn it... I was going to tell @R MK IV that the Fossilized Hermalon Blossom was a PS exclusive and watch him come apart at the seams.  *snicker*

Destiny 2 is dead and Destiny 3 is going to bomb as a result. At this stage I can't imagine many will even give Bungie the chance to right the ship. The initial sales and pre-orders for Destiny 3 will be down significantly and only in the event of overwhelmingly strong user reviews may the community start coming back to the franchise. It's more likely that the Destiny franchise puts Bungie out of business since they're locked into another 5 year commitment with Activision. The days of giving Bungie the benefit of the doubt are long gone. I've never seen a game developer care so little about their community.

Added the elements, received the new level quest, solo'd it last night and received Saint 14's Shotgun. 

I thought that was only going to unlock after unlocking all of the weapons.

 

Or is it the quest for the ghost that unlocks when all weapons are unlocked.

I think you have to finish all the weapons before they all unlock.

Once you get all the weapons you automatically get the Sagira shell !

I did!

 

I feel sad.  Feels like the life is slowly ebbing out of this site. 

 

It was strangely energetic when I first joined.

 

Now every incoming post is like the sites heart beat slowly keeping it alive. 

1 or 2 beats a day ...

I feel the same way.  I keep trying to post daily.   I'm hoping that when more content comes out, Destiny 2 will become alive again.
