GC - "Xur: Agent of Nine"s location for week 4 has been revealed."
Kinda disappointed with the items this week, but I get to save my strange coins so it's all good.
Been playing since launch and still haven't gotten 23 strange coins... :/ I'm at 18 though so maybe next week I'll have enough coins to buy something interesting.
You're doing something wrong then
If you are at level 18 - that is why. I really didn't amass strange coins quickly until I got around level 26/27. then I could do the daily/weekly/nightfall strikes on their hardest level. The weekly on level 28 gives you 9 strange coins.
@above I'm lvl 26 and can't solo the weekly stuff - don't have access to that large group of strange coins in one pop. People on my friends list have quit playing for the most part, and the 2 that do play don't do fireteam stuff. I've had to farm mine from dismantling blue items over and over again for a chance at getting one.
yeah kid you're doing it wrong... real wrong... I dunno even know how many I've had in total... but it's upwards of 70... hell I currently got 35 Motes Of Light right now... and that's not even counting the 23 I spent that one time on an exotic engram..
Same here, lvl 24…I do the weekly and the public events too. I really want/need the coins. Any tips to be offered since I am missing some magical way to accumulate coins?
For all of you trying to get strange coins if you aren't level 28 get to 24 and just go one the reddit and ask for people to join you for the 22 one. I have two character level 26 and 27 so I just run the first two on both and can easily get 12 very fast. I currently have 34 due and haven't tried to get any in the past week but that's because Xur has disappointed me two weeks in a row. As for motes of light if you spend 1-2 hours doing the daily bounties you WILL get 23 (assuming you are level 20 already) motes in a week. I usually do 3-4 of each and the queens bounties have made leveling so much easier. I got 25 last week and 29 by yesterday so it the motes are very easy to get.
I've got a group of guys level 28+. You're welcome to join us if you'd like people to play with. We're on almost every day doing strikes, weekly/heroic events, raid, etc. If you've got a mic, send me a message/FR on PSN: HellzAssassn. My entire clan is doing the Raid again tonight, so we may not be available due to such. PS. I've had plenty of strange coins. Doing level 28 weekly/nightfall and such give you 9 a piece. Look us up on bungie.net too (Farm And Raid Industries Inc)
I think he means he has 18 coins - not that he is lvl 18
I forgot to mention in my previous comment. I'm playing on PS4
i had 51 strange coins and bought red death and the saint helm and have 16 to spare.
You just don't play enough or, damn I don't even know. Do you do weekly strikes at all? I've spent over 50 strange coins since launch.
Finally got the sunbreakers for my warlock and that made me a twenty seven. Movin on up!
agent of nine ??? im level 25 and i havent got many strange coins lol
SUNBREAKER'S AGAIN?! C'mon Bungie this is 3 weeks in a row with the same garbage item for the warlock class, get it together!
Sunbreakers weren't last week but I get what your saying.
Yes you are correct i didnt actually check last week now that i recall, but 3/4 weeks has been the same :/
I KNOW GIVE ME THAT VOID ROBE
Great, Hunter Helm and Exotic helm engram again.
Right? I've been waiting for some exotic Hunter gauntlets and have only seen one person rocking them.
That would be nice, but it’s more annoying for me that every week the Hunter item and the Exotic engram have been the same slot. There’s 4 items (one for each class and one exotic) for sale and 4 equipment shots. How hard is it to ensure the exotic engram is not the same slot as the class items being sold?
I only have 9 strange coins :( I would like that titan helmet.
- . - You can have mine. I've managed to acquire 3 of them so far from RNG/engrams... which royally sucks since I play Warlock.
Pity they dropped trading out of this 'MMO'
dismantle 2, save one for your titan if you level one, if you dismantle it will give 3 ascendant shard almost 100% of the time.
If you can manage to get the extra coins before Xur disappears, the helm is totally worth it for Defender subclass on the Titan. It blinds all enemies that enter your Ward of Dawn bubble, even in PvP. :P
Yeah, I saw that! I play Defender most of the time, so thats why I want it. it would definitely be helpful, especially on Control missions!
so i winged it again with the exotic engram and got a exotic for another class. so that makes two straight weeks the engram i buy is for another class. i managed to get red death too, the exotic pulse riffle so far its a good buy.
I got that from a drop... the gun is garbage. A nice novelty item though. It fires too slow, and recoil / spread is too much for PvP and funny enough, PvE. Maybe they buff it in the future.
yeah the main reason i got it was because of its healing abilities paired off with my other ones i couldnt turn it down.
I had so many motes I bought a tail for my titan and gambled on an exotic engram, got the striker class one, now can rock defender and striker helms. Had the defender one already. Only drawback is have to level it up, I drop to 27 with the new helm from 28.
Damn, was hoping the Suros Regime would be there.
Was just there last week
The Warlock gauntlets have been there 3 out of 4 times, what's stopping Suros Regime from being there again? Lmfao. I can't believe those gauntlets are there again, that's just ridiculous. Exotic stuff should be special, now I see so many Warlocks with those gauntlets.
I was hoping that Suros Regime would be there this week again as well. Just bought the Sunbreakers, and used Mote of Lights to buy an exotic engram. Which turned out to be a knucklehead radar helmet. Guess the game is forcing me to play as a Hunter character, with all the hunter armor I have stored in my vault lol. Now I only have 18 Strange Coins left, and 18 motes of light.
Im actually content with this, since I need to buy that engram.. to break it down for ascendant shards! Those things are getting so hard to find since I hit level 28.. I got a bunch from the vault of glass, but you can only do it once a week.. tried getting some from conventional methods (farming, crucible, public events) but it's just not happening.. I went and played all day yesterday without a single legendary engram or ascendant shard..
yeah i get them ascendant shards most of the time from live events only now that im 28. i had 32 and had been holding off on using them on my armor since im not too happy how it looks but today i used them all, now its going to be a while before i get more.
Yeah, for some reason, they just dried up when I hit level 28. I need like 24 more to fully upgrade my armor, but they've been hard to find.. I just purchased the exotic helm and engram from xur (actually got an awesome helm from the engram, but had to break it down) and only got 4 total ascendant shards for breaking down both exotics! Gonna have to keep doing the vault o' glass!
I started being brave and dismantling stuff.. Was all happy when my fully upgraded legendary scout rifle gave 6 energy... So did the exotic rifle and only got 2.. Lol Seems its directly tied to how many shards or energy you've put into it, not the class of weapon..
Yeah, I’ve only been getting marks and sometimes glimmer on public events now. Sure I’ll get the daily reward, but I never get an ascended item when I complete a public event like I used to.
When you say farming are you talking about doing the daily story mission on level 28? I've opened many a loot chest and never seen ascendent materials.
Actually, I arm on mars an area where I get a ton o chests, hoping to get legendary engrams to break down for ascendants... happens very seldom, though..
I've managed to accumulate 20 ascendent shards... and I'm level 28. I usually get one from the first public event of the day (destinypublicevents.com if you need help finding them), and from the daily/weekly/nightfall/raid. Either that or you can purchase legendary armor from ____ faction and simply dismantle it. If you have more crucible points that you know you won't spend, just buy armor and dismantle it. I usually get 3 shards from the Vanguard chest plates.
@theredbutterfly: Yeah, been doing all that stuff too! Thanks or the public event schedule, though... I'm sure that'll come in handy..
Finally. I get to buy his stuff and dismantle for shards and energy.
I risked getting the exotic engram and got the same hunter helm thats hes selling, now I need 6 more coins for that pulse rifle.
So from now every week top story on N4G will be new items in Destiny? Are you serious?
The game is onlubabfew weeks old. And if you didn't notice, the top story changes based on certain variables.
Guessing you don't like Destiny?? God forbid N4G allow something related to a game in the top.... What is this nonsense we must have some console war bs, , bait article up. Can't have things related to a particular video game, that nonsense.
do you know how you can help a story not be on top? not going into it... you know... just ignore the stories about games you dont like.. i've head its not that hard to do.
Yep just for all the haters... Funny, Destiny has been out 4 weeks now and is still the hottest game on this site at a rate of 6x the next title on the list. Every other game this year, within a week of it coming out dropped down significantly on the "hottest" list... Yet Destiny, a game that "sucks" according to all the people that DON'T PLAY IT is still the hottest game here! Keep hating!
guys, I have Destiny since launch and I am playing it almost every day, so no ofense to the game here, I am just surprised this type of article can make it to top every week :)
@life28 - Yeah, how dare a very fun and popular game get top article real-estate on a gaming website. I think you need to face the facts, Destiny is a very well received game and likely the most popular one to release this gen so far, despite all the hate from non-players, butthurt Xbox fanboys, and bitter reviewers who didn't get their early copies. I for one love all the Destiny articles because I am actively playing the game AND enjoying it. Hope we see these articles every week because it allows fans to get together and talk about the game, or give/get helpful tips from other players.
I want the helm of inmost light :/, I have 38 strange coins come on bungie.
Anyone knw how many shards you get for dismantling exotics ? And with type of shard you get ?
It varies from time to time for some reason.... Sometimes I get 2 shards and sometimes I get 3.
I got 2 energies for my exotic rifle.. What a let down.. Edit.. Weapons use/give energy, armor gives/uses shards
Damn, was hoping there'd be something for my hunter, I already maxed out my Knucklehead Radar so there's no need to get Apophiage Symbiote. I got Red Death in an Engram, it's an OK rifle in PVE, especially when you unlock it's unique upgrade, but it fires very slowly between bursts which really limits it's effectiveness in PVP, unless you can consistently hit all headshots, you'll nearly always be gunned down in a straight fire-fight.
That's the one thing I was worried about with the Red Death. It's between that and the sparrow upgrade, but I don't know if it's worth it.
Being a level 29 warlock for over a week now I dont even wait on Xur anymore. He never brings anything to the table. Sunbreakers for the last 3 out of 4 weeks and the most crappiest looking helmet for a warlock Ive ever seen. Ive gotten that helmet on a drop and dismantled it on looks alone lol. Ran the raid 4 times and I have gotten lots of shards. Ive also gotten the raid chest piece and raid arm bond...not much else though.
"and the most crappiest looking helmet for a warlock Ive ever seen" Which helmet? Apotheosis Veil? I think that helmet is crap lol I want the (Light Beyond Nemesis) and (Skull Of Dire Ahamkara) Warlock helmets. I'm currently a level 28.
Yes the veil one...I just dont like the looks of it at all. I know looks dont mean anything in this game but to me it does lol. I want the Skull Of Dire as well....that one looks great.
I'm a 25 WL and I have 0 friends still playing had about 8 but they all jumped ship after a week. So I have 16 coins and I play about 3 hrs a night It sucks no matchmaking on the Daily and Weekly. I'm on Xbox One hit me up if you need a third or 6th Hyjack
already have the armor I need, I just use him to buy and dismantle for upgrades :)
Hmm... Probably won't get anything this week unless I want to trade 13 strange coins for 3 shards since I'd be breaking down whatever I got. I'm content with my Insurmountable Skullfort.
