Thanks to a method called “data mining”, we now know something about the next raid that Destiny has to offer, as well as items, weapons and which sets belong to each class.
It's pretty obvious Bungie is raising the level cap in Destiny, the grind is going to be real.
The grind is already real!
Yes it is, farming for materials has to be the worst.
That comment sent my launch all over my screen. Thanks for the lol. +bubble
They have to. A lot of people are at max and if they add more gear then everyone will be. Being at max takes the fun out for some people. You dont need to grind to get to max if you don't want to. Just play and have fun.
I feel like they are increasing the soft (light) based cap but leaving the hard (actual level, aka 20) level cap... Just based on what I've seen..
I would still like a melee weapon in my heavy slot without having to play a Hunter.
Have you tried Warframe recently? It feels like the game that Destiny is trying to be.
Yes but it really isn't the same kind of game. I love Warframe, don't get me wrong, but it's a whole different animal.
Personally I feel it's the other way around, and Warframe is the poor mans Destiny. They share many similarities in their design but Warframe feels vastly less polished, and lacks comprehensive environments. (you only play short linear segments in Warframe, rather than missions within a larger hub-world like on Destiny). That, and that Warframes PVP is absolutely terrible. Destiny's can be bad sometimes, but at least Destiny's feels designed as part of the game from the start, Warframe's just feels tacked on. That, and that Warframe is effectively pay to win make it somewhat less appealing than Destiny, at least for me.
without play a Hunter??? WAIT, hunters can have melee weapons in their heavy slot?!?! I've played every class, I'm pretty sure every weapon is interchangeable, and there are no melee weapons.
I'm talking about their Blade Dancer ultimate attack since that's usually what gets tossed at me in response.
I hope this isn't everything.
Seems like it's adding a few new exotics and the raid gear for the next expansion. Perhaps a few more rares and uncommons.
people still playing this game ?. I played it until lvl 20 then i played a Little more then bored.
And you are surprised everyone didnt do what ever you did?
Sorry you didn't have any friends that played so you could experience all of the fun end game content - especially the Vault of Glass.
I have a bunch of friends that are still playing but can't get everyone together at once to do the vault. The lack of matchmaking for the vault pretty much killed the game for me when I reached that point and still can't do it. That, and the 3 weeks of events that were a big "F U" to the high level players. They've pretty much lost me.
You're not going to clear the vault of glass with random people that have never done it before. Your only prayer would be if you got matched with 5 other people that all knew each mechanic.
Then that is another bad design choice, in my opinion. Choosing not to explain anything to you while doing the raid served no purpose, save for making it difficult for the FIRST team to do it. After that, everyone knew full well it would be all over the internet. Why not just put that info in the game and save people the trouble? (Also, allowing for matchmaking) I'm not asking for it to be "easy", but giving people some direction would have made it manageable by a group of randoms.
Yeah. Only about 3.2 million. No big deal...
Don't know why they don't just put 100 levels in it and have an extremely low XP counter... Progress is progress and now matter how fast still satisfying. :)
I reached lvl20 before completing every story mission. There are still a few missions I have yet to complete, and the primary reason I haven't is because their rewards, a few thousand XP, is utterly useless to me at the point I'm now at.
151 hours played between 2 characters and I might have another 49 hours left before I am 30 on both characters but so far I have paid roughly .40 cents an hour for entertainment simply for Destiny. I don't see enough value in the DLC's unfortunately but maybe I will return next year to see how much different the game is and maybe the DLC's will be more valueable. TLDR Version. I have gotten my moneys worth so far just future investments into DLC is not likely.
I have 105hours over 3 characters :P This is kinda interesting. My 1st Character: Hunter, 81hrs, lvl27 (nearly 28) 2nd, Titan, 14hrs, lvl26 3rd, Warlock, 11hrs, lvl25 Sheesh, 10hrs to hit lvl20 ;)
Yeah leveling gets faster after the first time you play as the 2nd and 3rd time you just want to go ahead and get to 20 and you know your not missing out on anything worthwhile because everything that is worth getting is tucked away behind the soft cap of lvl 20. level 1-20 is just a time sink until the real game begins just like Borderlands.
I can't be bothered with Destiny anymore. There's really nothing left to see. Don't get me wrong, I got my money's worth (gameplay hours) but there's not much point in playing now. I don't think I'm going to buy into the DLC or the next games.
Still waiting on match making. Until that I'll just keep playing other games.
What kind of matchmaking do you need / want? it has matchmaking for strikes and crucible... I wouldn't recommend matchmaking for the raid. It's easy to see why you wouldn't make it through with a group of randoms. Hell, if a guy without a mic picks up the artifact, you've already lost.
Hope the new exotics work well, can't wait to see how they look.
who cares it will all be nerfed eventually
I quit this game couple days ago. My titan has been level 29 for a while and I'm tired of grinding. I did the raid 4 times including once on hard and got a helmet and that fugly ship. The rest (on normal) has been ascendant shards. Played for days worth of time but looking back it wasn't fun. It was tedious and at times frustrating. Idk why I felt compelled to keep grinding. The only plus being crucible and I'm getting HMCC in a couple weeks so I won't be on crucible anymore. Went 15 and 2 (7.5 kd) last night and got jack diddly. Guy went 1 and 14 and got a legendary AR engram. Wtf. Gonna go trade it in tomorrow for Shadows of Mordor. Learned my lesson with hype, and Bungie lost me as a fan. Honestly if you didn't buy the limited or the xpacks already just wait guys. Otherwise they'll keep thinking it's cool to feed us garbage like this. Unless you like the game. In which case more power to you.
