IGN: We've seen two raids now in Destiny, but which is the better experience?
Vault of Glass. It's more thought out. More interesting with a lot of team warm. You have platforming sections, a stealth section, portals and stuff, far more coordination. The whole affair feels more epic. Crotas End feels generic and hollow in comparison.
and Crota hard raid is super super cheap, it actually punishes you if the team is doing very good with the enrage. if House of Wolves also relies on cheap wipes then I'm done with this game.
I feel you need more coordination on crota than VoG. That and I also like the fast pace feel of crota than the slowness of VoG. Being the sword bearer on hard mode is a rush. I still do the vault but that mostly for the fatebringer which I have not gotten yet.
I only just started this game a couple of days ago. Its a LOT better than it was made out to be... and I hated halo. Still a noob though.
keep playing, bro... it gets a lot better after you hit the 20s and 30s level-wise.... just trust me on this..
Im addicted to it now. I have another 7 games ive still to play. Enjoying ot loads though. Need to try TLOU remastered as well! Need more time in the day lol. Im a level 8 just now on Destiny. Be on it a few hours later.
Yeah, I've got several games I need to play, too.. but Destiny always seems to get in the way! Before you know it, The house of Wolves will be out.. hopefully I've got enough time between HOW and Plague of comets to play some of those other games... I've definitely got my moneys worth out of Destiny (DLC included)
more like who has the best cheeses! XD
Vault of glass. Way harder, just for the fact that VOG requires teamwork and a lot of communication.
Vault... Crota's End is fun, but most part can be done with less than a team of six, whereas you pretty much need a full team to do Vault (on Hard).. I can't wait to see the next raid ;)
Crota end is more fun but VOG is a much better raid. You don't even need a full team to beat Crota on any difficulty. It can easily be 2 manned on normal and completed with 2 or 3 on hard with the right players and weapons.
The vault was two manned before but is not even hard. You need a full team b/c of the mechanics of VoG not b/c it hard.
VOG feels like a tutorial with no fun and high difficulty, while CE feels much more rewarding and fun. They could at least let you upgrade or wear armor that looks like VOG armor painted over the stronger armors.
VoG all the way. It's not even close.
While each raid has its own feel, overall, I think Vault of Glass is a mechancially more interesting raid. Crota's is not bad as the lamps and the bridge section have a good feel to them. But deathsinger and then Crota with the focus on ONE player only kind of loses its steam a little bit.
In terms of final boss I like crota better but overall design has to go to VOG
does anyone else notice the vault weapons are far better than crota weapons? I mean the best scout is vision of confluence the best pistol fate bringer the best auto aetheons epilog the best shotgun found verdict the best lmg corrective measure. only thing of crotas thats better is the rocket and sniper. even the vex destroys the necrochasm. they better not make this mistake in house of wolves.
I think bungie may have felt the vault weapons were too good and tried to avoid that with the crota ones. I think only the word of crota and necrochasm should be buff or change like giving the necrochasm focus fire.
Actually the Abyss Defiant as a beast of an auto rifle!! if only there was a 331 confluence
I have not done a single raid as I have no friends that a playing this. Just wish that bungie would put a matchmaker in for it or a meeting place specific for people to arrange a raid.
It'll take you about 2 minutes to find a group on destinylfg.com They should have included something in the game, but I understand why they didn't do random match making for raids. It would lead to a lot of shitty experiences.
Final fantasy xiv has matchmaking for similar if not more complicated events and it causes no issues, it just forces the team to help and discuss the tactics on the go.
Yes...but Destiny doesn't. The point is there's a really easy resource out there to quickly find a group. It's the best content in the game and well worth the very small amount of effort it takes.
