Destiny's House of Wolves expansion looks like they are getting exotic upgrades to VoG weapons and gear to keep them relevant.
Very nice. I may have to ay again.
If it's true the old gear is going exotic I'm disappointed. The best part about these weapons is they were great and didn't take up the exotic spot. I'd much rather they stay legendary.
This makes not having a fatebringer even more painful now.
I like how we can upgrade our old gear to light level 34, VoG armor looked the best.
That will annoy the living crap out of me.. I along with many others have dismantled their vog armor because it was made useless.. Thankfully I kept all my weapons but every piece of armor was scrapped
I kept them because I had the room. I only keep 1-2 Legendary pieces of armor (so I have something to swap with exotics to move from an exotic helmet to chest piece, etc.) all depending on their stats. However due to the unique nature of Raid armor (and even Eris' story quest related Gauntlets) I have kept these in addition to Dark Below 33 light armor just in case they somehow get a buff (and some of them just look slick). One thing I've noticed is that Raid armor has borderline OP perks. They aren't game breaking because most of the perks are geared toward PvE and the Raids, but some are very useful in other PvE activities (such as generating extra orbs for non-Guardian kills).
I'm probably alone, but I actually like the new horde-like mode.
Firefight-like This is Bungie we are talking about :)
How could you like it, there has been no official info about it yet?
Horde modes are all the same. It's just one of two options: Defend this thing, or survive as long as you can.
I am very much looking forward to getting back into Destiny. I haven't touched it in few months so this looks like a great reason to.
I'm the same way. I did everything and then lost the reason to play. Reaching 34 with the old gear will be nice, but I'll bet anything that the new light level max will be 36. Got to keep you busy grinding for gear.
The grind is fine, we just need more content. As of now, there is really nothing to do once you reach max level with all three of your characters and when you have pretty much every exotic right now.
Dam I have Destiny, Bloodborne to finish up and The Witcher 3 to juggle. Good problems to have I guess!
Dont forget mortal kombat x
Do you have to complete the raids to get 30+ gear now? I only like to get gear then do raids once.
No the vendors sell gear to take you to level 30 with a maxed out exotic piece you will be at 31.
It helps to have the DLC as it gives you access to more 33 light level gear easily. With 3 fully leveled 33 light armor pieces and one 35 light exotic you'll reach Level 31 easily. However, the only way to max completely out at Level 32 (technically right at 33, but there is a forced 32 cap until HoW) is with a full set of Crota Raid gear or Iron Banner gear (or mix of the two).
I hope they didn't just make the VOG stuff upgradeable. If they left the CE stuff out that just creates the same problem players had with VOG gear when CE came around. That is if they increased the damage/defense stats again. If not then CE doesn't need it, obviously. But this is good news for sure. I'll be happy to have an upgraded Praedyths Revenge.
Finally might need to give destiny another go its been months since I played.
Can't wait to use my vision of confluence again.
I used it to great effect on this week's Nightfall. Even though the damage caps at 300, with the tri-Burn this week ANY elemental Primary helps. VoC is the only one I have because it is hard for me to run the raids for various reasons (and most of the times I have run them I got sharded). I still use VoC as a switch from MIDA when I want to use IceBreaker or another exotic and VoC is still effective against Wizards and Shanks with shields (they both have Solar shields).
I will forever love my Vision of Confluence :)
They tried to out Halo, Halo. And failed
That Fire-Fight mode looks cool! Sucks we can only use one legendary tho, gonna be tough to pick
