    I don't like the Mercury strikes, but that aside, it's still a joke that they literally just reused two story missions, without even bothering to give them new bosses or even simply reskinning them to look a bit different.
    But that's exactly how strikes worked in Destiny 1...

    Admittedly, I don't believe they were labelled as Strikes when you first do them in this dlc which they should have been for clarity, but it was said before release of Curse of Osiris that the Strikes would be completed as part of the main story. I don't see what the issue with it is personally.

    The only strike I have an issue with is the one in the Exodus Black on Nessus where the boss is an invisible dude who appears for two seconds and then disappears again meaning it's a long-winded slog no matter how over-levelled you are. But, of course, this and the other legitimate faults with the game aren't going to be sorted anytime soon because the internet is having a hissy fit over other things instead.

    The issue is that there are only five levels in the DLC and three of them are strikes. If they made 15 levels and three were strikes then fine, but itís really obvious they wanted to cut corners by double dipping on strikes as a campaign level. Telling me in advance youíre going to fuck me in the ass doesnít make it ok. Bungie are proper shady cunts now.

    I didn't know that, but it still means there's way less content than there should have been. Nobody liked Will of Crota, but at least it wasn't in the story.

    Besides, I don't even are much for them. Everybody I get to play with, and I mean everybody, simply skips the infinite forest part because they recognize it for the useless slog it is. After that, the Garden World is pretty annoying, while the Tree of Probabilities is better but has an annoying boss. Anyway, they are not in the running for my favorite strikes in the series, that's for sure.

    I actually don't mind Exodus Crash that much, but I know that most people hate it.

    I was under the impression that will of crota nightfall gave everyone a sort of stockholm syndrome and it become one of their favorites, to the point that everyone cheered when it was moved into the TTK playlist.

    Also, Exodus crash is not only broken (on prestige) but the invisible boss on the nightfall sucked balls.

    I think it was simply that it had the same "advantage" as the Undying Mind: with so many enemies, you were guaranteed to reach the golden rank. A lot of people playing the Nightfall were only doing so to get Sunrise, so it was convenient.

    How are people getting on with the Forge? Are there any weapons really worth grinding for?

    I got the first one - the Vex scout rifle - and it's pretty good. The range and stability make it more of a hybrid sniper, but it lacks that great punch you get from Nameless Midnight.

    Almost got the mats to forge the second weapon. Is it worth continuing, or are they all a bit meh?

    Done 5 of the Forge weapons so far....and scrapped them all. None are really worth keeping (maybe the SMG if thatís your thing) so far for me

    Most I've tried have not really been worth it, but they are yet another source of powerful gear, it seems.

    Also the shotgun is actually pretty good. Full auto, deep ammo reserves, and decent stats.

    Unfortunately, I'm also starting to hate strikes. Paradox Amplifiers are the bane of my existence.

    I'm really into the new update and so is my long term destiny partner. We have been playing destiny since day one and for once we had no complaints about the new dlc and then I read on here people think it sucks and I'm not sure if I'm being a mug liking it.

    The only thing I hate is that I don't think I will ever do the raid because I cba/don't know four other people to do it with.

    Nice, they have brought back the Needler, I mean the Telesto fusion rifle.

    By the way, is there any point to re-rolling a masterwork's bonus? I tried, and it's still the same as before: orbs on multikills and kill counter.

    I kinda hope they keep the snowpiles in strikes even after the Dawning, because they are pretty fun. They even make Exodus Crash better simply because the arena is so well suited to target practice.

    The orbs and multi-kills thing is just a general perk for Masterworks, there is another bonus that appears on the weapon info screen that will be something like "10 Reload Speed", not sure what the number actually means but that's the bit that changes when you re-roll it.

    Oh yeah, now I noticed. Looks really small and unimportant though.

    Had +5 range, which seemed effectively useless on a scout rifle. Now I got +10 magazine, which gives me... one extra bullet in the chamber. Oh well, in for a penny, and all that.

    I think I finished the Forge?

    The circle isn't completed for some reason, but on the last weapon I got Sagira's Ghost Shell, which is pretty amazing for Mercury but somewhat useless everywhere else, and a legendary emblem that keeps track of your kills with prophecy weapons (ie. not many because I don't keep them).

    Ah well, back to only playing for the weekly milestones. I'm at 333 light, almost there.

    Maybe it's a good thing that all weapons drop with fixed perks. It could get a bit much if you were searching for the perfect roll.

    Don't worry, I'm still searching for masterwork weapons to dismantle so I can get the perfect +5 Impact on my scout rifle.

    Morning.

    This is currently £14.99 in Smyth's. I'm thinking of picking it up for me and my mate so we can do some co-op. We loved the first one. Never finished it of course.

    Is it as good as the first and worth picking up..

    It's not quite as good as the first but if you liked the first then for 14.99 a piece do it. I've already got over 50 hours of fun out of it.

    I realise clan details are on the first page, but is anyone actually still playing? I'm looking for PS4 players, to raid with and maybe do some Trials.

    Well, I'm still playing and would love some raiding or nightfall-striking (as I've done neither), but I'm on Xbone :redface:

    I do see still a few people playing from my PC clan, but not that many.

    Proof: near the beginning, I used to always get the Nine and Raid clan engrams, but now I haven't got them in a while.

    @fentsy I'm not playing much at the moment but we still have an active player base in my clan (UK Nightfall Raiders). We use discord to communicate and there is usually at least one raid completed each week.

    I got kicked out of the golden age academy.
    I guess because I never took part in any clan activities...
    I've now got powerful enough and would like to try the raid before Monster Hunter World comes out...

    @Alastair You're welcome to join our clan to get the raid done, there is one being arranged for tonight if you're interested.

    We do remove inactive players eventually but you can always rejoin if you decide to come back to the game at a later point.

    Yeah it's a good group, join up and if you keep an eye on our discord channel you'll be able to get in a raid one night when it suits you.
