Bungie nerfed the second “Loot Cave” in Destiny with yesterday’s hotfix, and maybe someone thought players would finally give up farming. Obviously, that wasn’t the case.
Somehow I get the feeling Destiny's story is about caves and loot.
It isn't quicker for leveling light. It is of u need mats or wanna level cryptarch. But ppl have leveled already and understand the game better.
Compulsion, not fun... sad
To each their own. I've been having fun.
lol at a game that can't satisfy its players without them resorting to glitch exploitation
LOL at gamers that can't earn their legendary gear without resorting to glitches and exploitation. I mean come on man. I earned my legendary boots and rocket launcher in Crucible. My Legendary Chest Piece from the Queen's special event, which was just one mission that guaranteed you a legendary piece of armor, and my legendary gloves from leveling up my rep with the Future War Cult Faction. During all of that, I also earned enough Strange Coins to buy my exotic helmet. I dont want to hear about people not being able to get good gear. There are guaranteed ways to get it.
Hows this a glitch? Its just spawn camping, you might want to look into what glitch's are.
I'm Fully Agree with you @CorndogBurglar , I earned like you all my gear, but now i'm farming with this common technique to earn some Strange Coins, because at this level like you its pretty difficult to find some strange coins after complete the Weekly Heroic, dont waste your time replying to people who does not have the game.
At this point nobody would care anymore. Ever since the update I definitely get more engrams but they are always usually green even tho im level 27 so what the heck is the point when their loot system is terrible. I spent 7 hours grinding for loot on a Saturday and go no legendaries. Did various missions, various strikes and nothing so I just gave up on the game and left it at that.
They are suppose to be extremely rare. If they made them more frequent then everyone would be leveling up so quickly. I feel your pain though. I have only received one purple after the patch from a drop. I got my chest from the Queen, the legs and arms from vanguard and forgot where I got my helmet, was it the queen? I got all my weapons, rocket launcher, two void snipers, hand cannon from rewards/drops and just got the auto rifle after leveling my vanguard to rank 3. I have yet to get exotic, but I am pumped to do so.
I hear you I felt the same up until Wednesday in which I got 8 legendaries in a day. I got 4 from the raid 2 from weekly and 2 drops.
I see no point in shooting in a cave to get loot.
Have you played destiny? Lol
Yes, and i don't sit in front of a cave for hours and shoot to get loot. I play Crucible/strikes/patrols/raids to get loot.
I'll admit I did it when I was in the low 20s but, now that I'm level 29 there's really no point to it.
I don't farm much anymore, since I get enough blue engrams and sometime legendary just doing missions more than I use too. If Bungie would fix their loot system, than people wouldn't do this. Destiny loot system is worst than Diablo 3 when it first came out on pc. Bungie needs to do what 2k did with bl higher level enemies drop better stuff and certain bosses drop a certain item.
That i can agree with , keep the random aspect , but a better set of rewards for the more challenging aspects of the game
Imo it was never worth it . Some People disliked grinding in missions doing actually something with friends , or even stranger , even if it's the same set of missions .... but would "love" staring at a dark hole and pits for mostly green orbs and stuff that fall the same in missions , before and after the patches . To each their kinks in guess
Ya it would be quicker if these people just ranked in vanguard or crucible and bought legendary stuff
Not trying to hate, but isn't bad that Destiny players have to rely on Loot Caves?
yep destiny is the only game people use exploits.
Clearly you never farmed for Bungie's Daily/Weekly challenges in Halo:Reach.
The funniest part is that they get mad at Bungie for fixing it. Like Bungie put all this time into the game and people wanna reduce it to ADS'ing down a cave and shooting low level enemies. That's actually insulting. It's like using the Mona Lisa as toilet paper
For the love of god, can someone explain to me why people are not farming on The Dark Beyond story mission? IIRC, loot drop % is equal for any enemy, and equal in any mode story/strike/patrol. So, WHY are these guy hunting for caves, when they quite clearly do not provide the highest kill/sec ratio? That's all that matters right?
"We've awoken the Hive!!"
The reason people are not using that mission anymore is that engram drop rate is now reduced when you die. To farm in missions like The Dark Beyond you need to die every time you run out of mobs, and this will kill the drop rate.
Uh oh! Time to start farming.
bungie will patch this like tomorrow... and kill it for the people who want to do this... bungie is just limiting how people play an already limited game... when you hit 29 there is literally nothing left in the game thats useful other then playing the same raid a few times a week (if your super cereal and have multiples of the same character) and praying for raid gear to drop... no thanks bungie i'll go play borderlands, yea sure thats more of the same shit from past games but at least it doesnt limit me on how i can play and there is actually a story and humor to fill the time... not to mention i find borderlands far more enjoyable and it has a deeper character customization IMO as well... plus the characters actually have a personality in this game which i have found myself enjoying far more then anything destiny had to offer... destiny was somewhat fun while it lasted but its time to move on to greener pastures :)
BL gun mechanics don't feel a trillionth as good as Destiny's. Also, you beat the Raid, you're max level, and you're complaining about nothing to do? I mean dude, you beat the game for now, it happens.
borderlands gun mechanics as far as the bullets actually going where you shoot doesnt feel as good... and i wasnt really complaining so much about me being max level and beating the game, but to how fast i did it and how empty it feels now that i have... i expected a bit more longevity out of the game that claimed to be so many things it clearly isnt... getting to max level and beating the game wasnt that fun either IMO as a whole im enjoying borderlands a lot more even tho the gun play isnt as good, the game is cooler, the guns are cooler, the characters actually have life and personality, and there is a story that is actually... enjoyable ... im glad everyone else is enjoying destiny i love seeing people gaming but i'd be lying if i wasnt disappointed in how little i felt i got out of the experience for my money :/
See ya, wouldn't wanna be ya! :) I'm enjoying the game a lot and have invested a lot of time in it. Once I acquire all the exotic weapons and gears, finish the Vault of Glass on normal and hard, I will start to feel that way, but I am no where near doing all that. After that, I will still want to play the crucible, as I find it fun and enjoyable. By then, I hope Bungie would be releasing more weapons to collect, expansions to include more missions, planets, etc.
im lvl 24 and never get a legendary drop!!!! SO MAD lol
