When Destiny‘s latest raid, the Vault of Glass, was released, Bungie warned players it would be an extremely challenging adventure. Today, 10 and a half hours after the raid’s release, Destiny clan Primegaurd have walked away victorious.
i watched it, seems like you have to have pretty good teamwork. the game def needs stuff like this to spice it up. at the same time and especially the final boss you have to shoot orbs over and over again and over and over. just continuously spraying shots, and this is troubling as the combat is so shallow so this might get stale after a couple weeks.
That's the problem I see with a lot of the missions....I stick strictly to crucible and may do a strike if here is like a bounty or something
It all depends on preferences though, I'm level 25 and haven't even touched the Crucible. I'm just not a fan of competitive arenas, I'd rather do strikes all day long..
@ genome Totally agree..i love mp..so I think this game is amazing
@fenom I agree with you completely as far as this game goes I'd rather do strikes. My thing with them is the time they take compared to the reward I may get. Vs the time I spend in a few rumble matches. An it seems like I come out with a higher chance of more gear in the same or less time frame. With less work in fact because I could be at the bottom of the board an pull an exotic like a friend did just last night. That my main frustration with it but then again RNG never loves me so I should of known.
@Enate Damn, I didn't know you could pull exotics from the arena. I think I might have to jump in and give it a shot. I'm having a hard time levelling passed 25 because it won't drop me any legendary gear. I've only found 2 pieces so far, one's an auto rifle and the other is for a class I'm not using yet so it got stuffed in the vault. I'm only like 2 or 3 strikes away from being able to purchase legendary from the vanguard, but I'd rather earn it than buy it. They do need to work on their reward system a little bit. Other than that I'm having a blast though.
Or a couple of seconds... I guess it all depends how entertained some people can be by this degree of, as you said, "shallow" action...
WOW seems to do just fine and the raids in that are about as exciting.
dont compare MMORPG to online FPS.
Don't tell me what I can or can't do thanks Mr 1 bubble. I am comparing raids , raids are the same thing as wow raids , they have bosses they have mobs and they have mechanics teams have to learn to win.
Every game combat gets repetitive so that is nothing new. At least destiny missions are fun as hell to do especially with friends imo!
If Bungie keep releasing these then I can see heads start to turn the right way from the wrong they currently stand!
That's another problem...I stated that there needs to be a number of raids to my clan and they said that there is only this one until the DLC comes...atleast there is the daily mission and the weekly strike...plus crucible and the need to find that exotic weapon that eats away at you
Yea I hear ya but man if rng has anything to say about it I will be the last person on the planet with an exotic. Friend of mine has pulled 3 legendary weapons and an exotic auto rifle last night easy. I got maybe one blue I could replace. Its days like that for me where its hard not to feel like the game just hates you. An wants you to grind away for every inch while the rest of your friends list seems to at least catch a break once or twice a night. Without having to complete some super death defying raid to get some decent gear.
wonder how long it took them
I believe one team took like 12 hours, the other team it took like 14. There are stats posted somewhere.
Bloody hell. That is a long haul then. I have a job to go to.
i guess they are out of the question for me. i thought long was like 1.5 hours.
Lmao @wsoutlaw87 ...yeh that's what I thought too, but damn second post to make me laugh today
You get to stop and save your progress. For like a week I think
So it appears they all died around 300 times each. There is a trophy for completing a raid without anyone dying once :( Am I missing something here?!
Well it was the first group to ever beat it, I am assuming there was a lot of trial and error. I am assuming once people get their characters raid geared and become knowledgeable in the fights it will become a lot easier. But even then you won't be able to slip up in the least amount. (me assuming from previous raid exp in other games)
"Am I missing something here?!" A platinum.
There is an achievement for completing a strike mission with out dying but that isn't the same as a raid mission and I'm not sure if the achievement/trophy list is the same but I bet they are
"Flawless raider" complete a raid without anyone in your fire team dying.
OK. Now they have to do it on hard mode which bungie said is the true experience!
"Studio just erupted into applause for @DattosDestiny and his squad. Well played."-Eric Osborne So awesome!
I'm not even leveled up enough to attempt it. Even the heroic modifier on weekly strikes in a headache at level 24.
You can do it dude, i believe in ya ;)
And not even a week into it's release. It's great to know that you can find 5 other people that have no life outside of gaming.
Come on, we all know these types; it's often a yearly thing with them. I will still challenge your comparison and say that a week of hardcore gaming like that simply isn't possible for most adults that have other interests and responsibilities like jobs, families, etc. Now if it's 6 teens on summer vacation, then I can understand.
Do you know where you are?
The jungle? Maybe the Jungles of Venus?
I figured I was on a site where people did more commenting than gaming. Seems like a lot of the gaming sites are this way now.
Damnnnn, wish I could actually play the game. I get kicked out every time I try and load a level. My network and internet speed is fine too :(
If you're desperate, and exhausted everything else, erasing your game file (not your game save file) and reload it... I think that could do it; that's what I did on the PS3 when my Ratchet and Clank file wouldn't load.
Has FINALLY been beaten? FINALLY? It's been out less than a day.
yes.. and they died 1600 times (all 6 together) and defeted 5700 enemies. Good luck in getting the trophy for clearing a raid without dying by any member.
No joke. You would have thought it had been 10 months, not 10 hours, judging from the headline.
All this excitement over a 6/10 game? Reviewers are on crack. This game is great.
Poor standards, this game deserves all the flak it gets
Someone has finally done it? OMG!!! and it only took 10 hours after it was released OMG!!!! Come on, it's not like people have been trying to do this for months on end, what's with the dramatic headline?
are they going to make more endgame raids.
12 hours of shooting bullet sponges
*laughed till I farted... or something*
Gonna be trying this tonight. Will be intesting to experience this. Thank you bungie for this amazing game
how do i access it? i dont see it in my destinations
I would love to do a raid in this game but I have a job to do. I hope Bungie has something more to offer to us crowds who play solo often and don't have the time to do a 10+ hour raid.
Raids like this is another reason why Destiny is a failure. Unlike most people I managed to rub together five high level friends, in full legendary, some with exotic weapons. It took us over 6 hours and the furthest we got was to get the boss down to 40-50%. This raid took so long and the mechanics are so tiresome, that some team members had to switch to a different controller because the battery ran out. Our group easily wiped over 50-90 times just to learn the mechanics of the raid alone, we must have wiped a few dozen times just trying to beat the boss. This content is designed for the 1%, only people with elite guilds can attempt it and even fewer can beat it. So I ask the Destiny fanboys, is this the game you want, is this the "end game" you were looking for?
The same issues more or less come up in DCUO, especially when people bail on 8-player raids.
Yeah, with no matchmaking either. Bungie must think it's a walk in the park to get 6 of your friends together at the same time for several hours of play. I'm a grown up adult so that is pretty much never going to happen for me. This is an aspect of the game I will most likely never be able to enjoy unless they change the way it works. It's a real shame.
Thiy need like 100 more or just alike this raid to mix it up and not feel slow.
