This used to be a busy place however with Discord and such , this isn't the place it once was , which to me is sad but there's not much I can do about it by myself , I come here not as much as I like , mainly because the time I used to spend here , I usually use that time now to work on things I need to do in Destiny (2)  but I still stop by whenever I'm on the pc in the AM .

  So how is everyone enjoying Shadowkeep so far ?? Me I'm getting that Destiny 1 feeling again and it's becoming an obsession again !

Good morning Viper!!

 

Yeah, I feel the same way.  I enjoy the immediateness of Discord, but there are times I prefer the forum platform where you can ask a specific question and follow the thread of the answers and subsequent questions.  

 

But as a wise man once said. The times they are a changing...

 

Discord has gotten a little hectic for me.  Too many servers, too many people talking, conversation threads out of sequence.  I guess I'm showing my age.  LOL...

 

 

I am having fun with Shadowkeep.  I actually played my Titan and my Warlock for the first time in over a year.  I played my Hunter in the IB through the week. Saturday I did my Titan and got him to 950 base, Sunday I played my Warlock in IB and got him to 950 base.  I found I haven't finished Warmind on my Warlock.  I really didn't want to do the grind so I left them behind.  Now I feel I can play them when I want to and not feel behind. So kudos to Bungie for this change.

 

I'm liking the grind.  I still don't feel I have to do everything, I basically just did Iron Banner last week.  The past two nights I've been tired and only played for about an hour and just played some mindless Mayhem, But still don't feel like I'm behind.  I did get the Leviathan's Breath quest done.

Michael did you finally break down and get a Twitter account ??? If so DM me you Twitter "name" so I can follow you . 

 I still haven't reached 950 yet on any on my 3 characters though I did get all 3 the Iron Banner armor sets , My 'Lock and Titan still have to do the Shadowkeep campaign , did you get to 950 just doing IB ??

Viper...

 

No, I do not have a Twitter account.  Bungie's Discord posts the tweets and I can read them.  You don't need a twitter account to be able to read them.

 

Yes, I got all three characters to 950 during IB.  I played the Shadowkeep campaign with my hunter, got him to 930, started IB, got him to 950.  Moved those weapons over to my Titan.  Pull some green "leveling' armor from collections and each time I got one, the base power level went up.  Then I grabbed the Titan armor from my Seasonal upgrades and it got me over 920. Then I played IB and that took me to 950 in an afternoon.  I did the same thing with my Warlock the next day.

I only did the leveling armor thing around 800-ish and did it a couple of times.  After that, it was just playing and pulling armor from my seasonal rewards.

You guys are still playing Destiny?  The grind finally did me in.  Got tired of feeling like I wasn't making any progress and falling behind.

 

So I switched gears and jumped into Anthem hoping that was better ... and that went about as well as a fart after binging on TacoBell for a week.

So broken, so incomplete and yet it felt like the norm for most games being released.

 

That more or less broke me and I just hung up my controller. 

 

Hope that you guys are doing well IRL.  Just figured I would pop in for old time sake.

Well Helloooooooooo!!!!!!!

 

Yup, still playing Destiny.  I haven't felt like starting anything else.

 

Not much going on here in the forums except for Viper and myself jabbering away.  Kind of sad really...  

 

IRL things are going well too.  I hope they are the same for you.

 

You should try Destiny again.  You can play for free now.  If you like it, you can then pay for what content you want.   

 

Good to see you on again.  Maybe more will come back for old time sake and we can turn all the lights back on here.

There's a point where I feel there is too much.  But then as Templar stated, I'd rather there be too much.  Some are complaining that there isn't enough.  It's never going to be the "right" balance.  I actually am not playing as many hours as I used to.  But I could see someone who no life's Destiny would run out of stuff to do.

I need to do the Campaign on my Titan and my Warlock.  I have them both at 967.  I am at Seasonal Rank 150 and +17 on my Artifact.  

 

I'm happy with Shadowkeep.  Lots to do. I'm not so with Season of the Undying.  I'm hoping the Final assault becomes more over the next couple of weeks.  For me it's a bit of the Season of the Untrying.  I've not even bothered with the Undying seal.  I don't know, I'm just not that hot and heavy about the the Vex Offensive.

I'm with you on that , I much prefer the events in Sorrows Harbor way more fun !  I got the campaign done with my Titan and Warlock , both 960 (my Hunter as well) without a problem even the mission to get the cryptglyph , easy peesy ! The final Iron Banner is here and I should get all 3 leveled up a bit more , still haven't tried the new Dungeon , haven't done the last one either for that matter , oh well at least I'm still grinding away !

I have all three toons at 970 now with the artifact bonus.

 

I got both my Titan and Warlock through the Shadowkeep campaign this weekend.

 

I had fun with my Warlock in the IB.  I didn't so much with my Titan.

 

What I figured out was that a Warlock is a Guardian on training wheels,  so easy to use.  That's why they made the jump crappy so there was some difficulty there.  I had some of my highest KDs on my Warlock this weekend.   But when you master the jump, it's awesome.

 

A titan is the next step. TITAN SMASH..  

 

But running a Warlock helps me with my Hunter game.  So I may be playing him a little more.

I only used my 'Lock for this IB trying to get the Broadsword quest done , what a grind ! Still stuck in the low 960s not getting any higher drops to get leveled up what a pain ! Just gotta keep on grinding ! I may also be looking for a new Clan as mine seems to be imploding , the powers that be won't give me control and they don't play anymore , go figure oh well it is what it is !

That's been the only time I really play my Titan and Warlock is during IB, to get the pinnacle rewards.  However, after this IB, I did quite well with my Warlock. Because of the movement I slowed myself down (unlike Titan smash).  I then used the same practice on my Hunter, using vertical space, slow down and I increased my kills per game and my K/D.  It wasn't the quality of players I was against either.  We got smashed a few times, but I still had decent numbers in those games.

 

What is your base power level?  I'm 953 + 18 with the seasonal artifact.  

 

If no one on your clan plays, then you should look for something new.  I'd invite you to mine, but were PS4 only.  We have the exclusive contract with Bungie.  Ha!...

I was 950 with a + 14 now I'm back to 950 what a bummer !! I have a couple of friends at work that play but we don't get together too often so I'm still a "lone wolf ", I'm going to stick with my "clan " til the end to see what happen I imagine it won' t be long before I'll have to look for a new one !
