PSLS reports on a way to earn a silly amount of Exotic Engrams through the Three of Coins!
Boom! Trying this now. :D
Please post back your results. I would be interested to see if this works.
I did it with 15 coins. Got 3 exotics with them. While it does work, it was just a boring and tedious as the old loot caves. Also, note that right now the only exotics that seem to drop for Y2 are armor.
I used 10 Three of Coins and only got one exotic drop. Unfortunately for me, it was an exotic I already had... :\
Got 6 from about 30 today stacking in 3's. All Armour. All year 2's. Mostly Helmets.
Interesting, gonna try this after work. Just hope bungie doesn't get in there and fix it before I do (unlikely, but knowing my luck this could happen). Hopefully I can get something, as I totally screwed myself by wasting 31 coins on the heavy engram not realizing that it was a legacy only engram. Total fail on my part. It was the vast majority of every coin I had too. Also here's another thought, what about the second or third mission on earth where you have to kill the boss that crawls out of the tube? He is an ultra right? Probably a little easier to whittle his health down before suicide rocketing him. Whereas Drasksis goes and hides after hitting him a few times, then waves upon waves of enemy's spawn. But I guess either way not a big deal, since the buff only goes away after killing him.
Got one drop in 10.
It's not really farming. You still need to spend Strange coins to get the Three of Coins, so depending on how many of these you use, it may be more or less lucrative than just buying exotics with Strange Coins or waiting for drops organically. Not really game breaking, so I doubt Bungie will fix it.
Yeah, still have to spend hours in the game to get exotic.
I got: Invective Alpha lutari No backup plans And a hunter exotic I can't recall the name. It works so do it now before they patch it
Are you Blind? They put this in the game for a reason duhhhh, why would they patch it, it works as they intended!
It is confirmed, they are patching it and nerfing the drop rate. This was posted by Bunngie on their forums. So use while you can, as they will probably be next to useless once bungie nerfs them.
I got nothing.
I got Year2 Don't Touch Me's
About every 5 coins should net you an exotic engram. Keep trying on the gate lord mission, grab the drops and leave before the mission ends. Then when you reenter for the next coin (use during loading to save time) you will be right by the circle to spawn the gate lord again.
Best method for me was to back out to tower after each exotic as then it only seems to take 2 or 3 tries to get another exotic, rinse repeat. Have about 15+ so far.
I did this for about 2 hours and walked away with about 15 exotics including the beautiful year 2 Monte Carlo. Not to mention all the legendaries and glimmer I got as well. Much better than farming legendary marks.
So far I got 3 exotic, and 2 legendary engrams. The exotics were a hunter and warlock helmet.the last word dropped on my second to last run last night. I've done 12 total runs
It works better on the EYE OF GATE LORD Mission, I got the jade Rabbit, all of the Titan helmets, the Hawkmoon.
