The House of Wolves launched 18 hours ago and many have already hit level 34.
Really reflex the amount of dept the game has, or this user has found the DLC's flaws already... I gave up on this game too fast, it has great gun play!! But felt way to repetitive....
It lacks content, even with "expansions". I myself will take my time with witcher first before diving again into Destiny. First expansion hold me for like a week.
Yep exactly. Choosing a new mission drops you in a spot, so my initial reaction was "yay a new area!" .. nope, just an old level backwards. Oooo some new shanks, and traps.. annnnd that's about it so far. Reading other posts and sites leads me to believe there isn't much else.
That isn't all there is to do though.
people had it done within an hour. just took 3 nightfalls with lucky drops of etheric light to get it done.
yeah, with so many ways to get high level gear in this DLC, its no so much about getting to the cap, but taking the chance to upgrade your best old gear as well
This. Bungie said it won't be hard to level gear this time, it's about making your own unique guardian now. I beat the PoE on 34 (which was a blast and had a great pick up team) and used my first Etheric Light on the fatebringer. I have till September to get to level 34, but a Fatebringer from 300 to 365 is f'n amazing. Same with Ghally. I leveled that immediately to 365 and wow, the thing is a bigger cheat code now! I am 33 right now and probably will hit 34 in the next couple of weeks, but I really do love how they lowered the upgrade trees to make it more realistic. I hardly leveled up legendary drops that I already had a better weapon, but now I do since it doesn't take long to get its perks unlocked to see how it plays. I got to say, this expansion is much more a step in the right direction then TDB. It would be awesome if they dropped a raid in between HoW and Comet.
I reached level 34 last night for my hunter. I cant wait to do Crota's Raid with my level 34 guardian. I want to see how fast it would take me to take down those Crota.
Imagine VoG Hard Atheon... he's gonna get wrecked with a group of lv 34 guys with fully leveled IceBreakers (one pass I bet)
@ryanshutup they should have raised the VOG level to at least 34 as well.
@ryan, it only takes one pass at level 30 anyway if you have a good team.
wont make a difference on normal because of the level cap.
"within an hour." Perhaps in theory, but it's almost literally impossible. To pull it off within an hour you would have to unlock the strike, beat the nightfall, swap to your other characters and get the exact drop you want every time. Even if you don't mean within an hour of launch it isn't going to happen. Anyway, I don't see why anyone thinks this is news. All you need is to beat Urrox 3 times and have an exotic, 32 - 35 once or beat the 32 twice and 34 once getting the right item from Judgements Chance.
no lots of people had it done by 7pm gmt one hour after launch. , the nightfall was unlocked straight away so just went straight into 3 nightfalls.
Got back on destiny yesterday after months of not playing. I don't have neither expansions but i got from lvl 27 to lvl 30 pretty fast. Less than 3 hours kept playing pvp alot and then decided to level my stuff.
I wouldn't think this would surprise anyone.
Ew yeah but they wasted their armor cores on Dark Below raid gear? In my book that shit doesn't even count... haha!
Except for the hunters helmet. Man, that helmet looks out of Dead Space. I am keeping that as I love it more than any other helemt in the game. I have that helmet, the Alpha whatever chest (the one with the wolf face), and the Hunters PoE Gauntlets. I need to find legs I love, but I haven't been able to land a paid that look really cool. I have to say, the TDB raid gear looked good for hunters, but I am tired of it lol.
Good point that hunter helmet is badass! I have it equipped right now actually.
Reaching the highest light level so quickly isn't the game-ending scenario some make it out to be. Sure they were able to upgrade one set of armor, but this isn't like TDB or before, you can upgrade ANY piece of armor to reach level 34, not just specific (and limited to RNG) end-game ones from raids, iron banner etc. All you need is the materials, which if you have a team ready to go most could do it in just a few days by doing all three nightfalls and a few of the PoE levels. The thing is, reaching level 34 is nice and all, but honestly is it only part of the end-game goal. As the ultimate goal is to upgrade everything you have to level 34 (and all your weapons to 365 attack), which will take a very long time. Not to mention there is a crap ton of new weapons and even weapon options (thanks to reforging) so most players will be constantly working towards one goal or another regardless if they have already reached level 34 on one set of armor. Also lets not forget upgrading armor on the other two characters as well. So long story short, reaching light level 34 doesn't = game over.
This. Thank you. People here think you get to the light level and it stops. Anyone can get to light level 34 rather quickly. I used my first Etheric Light on my fatebringer as a 365 fatebringer makes me all warm and fuzzy inside. It's about having all your weapons maxed, especially the ones you want to really take with you to the next expansion.
basically you are just paying 20 bucks to be able to upgrade your old junk and for the new content 20 bucks is just miserable.
Honestly, the new story was a lot of fun to go through, and PoE is great fun especially with friends. Level 28 was a cake walk, but level 32 was just brutal long, especially since the cabal boss will counter his shields with what ever weapon type you are using. Which was a cool twist. I think PoE will last a good while as long as you have friends to play with, plus the new strikes.
I beat level 34 and man it was intense. Really felt rewarded after beating it.
