    Actually, talking of builds, which weapons do you use?
    I was thinking of a Mighty Smashing Shoulder Charger build, and I figured MIDA Multi Tool with +2 Agility, and a Murmur with +2 Agility might be a nice combination on a Striker Titan with max Armor and max Agility.
    Although I never use Fusion Rifles in the Crucible, maybe I could use the Stormbreaker (or what is the Crota Raid shotgun called?) because that has +2 Agility too...
    In my experience, autorifles and shotguns are far more useful when you're sprinting around the map than scouts and fusion.

    Fusions pull you out of sprint to charge, scouts are much harder for me to aim on the move than ARs.

    It shouldn't be too hard to find guns with the Lightweight ability, though since it doesn't have any effect on sprinting speed it's probably not that important.

    Finally made it to rank 3 of vanguard rep today, and was rewarded with my first legendary primary weapon (scout rifle with firefly and some other useful perks, sweet!) - finally feels like this is starting to come together! Need to get raiding though, if anyone's going to be sticking their heads into the Vault this week I'd be interested in tagging along. I may even be useful!

    Nothing is more satisfying than the confused look on a hunters face when he activates his super then notices his blade dance is over already, thabks to a nicely timed supression nade.

    They always seem to just stand there in shock after. Makes it easy to shoot them in the head.

    Sev: Your gameplay is the most heavily yomi based around. Usually you look for characters that allow you to force guessing situations for big dmg. Even if the guess is mathematically nowhere near in your favor lol. You're happiest when you have either a 50/50, 33/33/33 or even a 75/25 situation to go crazy with. And you will take big risks to force those situations to come up.

    I really need to remember to start recording this stuff. Charged into an enemy Titan's bubble, then proceeded to shotgun/punch him and his two friends to death in his own living room.

    Why not change the chain of woe to the second throwing knife for Crucible?

    With the solar burn perk on the knife, I find a headshot will be just shy of lethal. With any prior damage it'll be a kill (usually post mortem in my case)

    On another note I simply cannot use fusion rifles effectively. Always too soon or too late on the charge. Plus, they are not conducive to instant wetwork in the bubble.

    I'm trying to effectively prioritize my to do list: I have two characters, a 31 Warlock and a 27 Titan. I can only play approximately 10 hours a week.

    Goals:
    1. Get Titan to 31
    2. Level fatebringer
    3. Level Gjallerhorn
    4. Level Patience and Time

    is the smartest thing to do just bounties for both characters with the new weapons equipped? Should i squeeze strikes in there so that i increase the chances for an armor drop? I suppose if I finish the Urn quest for my titan, it could push me up with legendary arms, leaving me only boots and chest to buy from the vendor.

    I wish marks were transferrable.

    You can get the "kill two enemies with a fusion rifle" bounty with Mythoclast?

    Bahaha while typing this I found out that kill a dozen enemies in a row with it will give you +5 towards the bounty. From one of the most frustrating to one of the easiest.

    Had a really nice run on the defender just now. I was experimenting with Blessing of Light. Managed to turn off a lock super, as well as chain way too many bubbles back to back.

    http://xboxclips.com/Hiryu+ZeroTwo/553bdd11-ab0d-4523-8ec1-a62ea92422f2

    I do have a question for other defender Titans, do you guys run Blessing or Armor? I normally run armor, so I can tank anything in the bubble, but the mobility offered by Blessing is pretty nice, though I wonder if I should run Illuminated instead of the faster cooldown on WoD. I wonder if there has been actual testing done to see the benefits of Blessing with and without Illuminated.

    It's a primary fusion rifle. Sort of. From what I understand it sort of fires like a scout rifle. But not.

    It also has 323 attack. Which is good for an old school exotic.

    Upon some google-fu, Illuminated apparently gives Blessing of Light a 95 damage shield, up from 65. That's on par with a Relentless Force Barrier shield. Pretty good.

    I realize I know the map well. I also was using weapons very well suited to PVP (Shadow Price, Gjallarhorn, Found Verdict). But still...there were so many events that just played out in just such a way as to let that happen.

    Hey guys,

    I am hoping to put some very rare Defender PVE playtime in this week and was wondering what build do you folks use?

    Is Iron Harvest worth using? I can't find any solid info regarding the orb creation rate. I have Ruin Wings & Armamentarium for extra Heavy ammo, If that helps?

    Bastion or Gift of the void?

    Any advice would be most appreciated :)

    When raiding, I go with suppression grenade to stop wizard attacks, hobgoblin shields, minotaur teleports and other stuff.

    Unbreakable and Relentless for the melee, you want spending that melee cooldown to count. For groups, Blessing or Weapons of Light with Illuminated.

    Gift of Light is pretty nice, Iron Harvest is a bit lackluster unless you tend to clear trash with an lmg.

    Thanks for the advice.

    Suppression grenades sound like fun!

    Field Scout and any armor that lets you hold more Fusion Rifle ammo negate this. It's for me what everyone else loves about The Last Word: stylish as fuck. It is the best looking weapon in the game to me. The sound is satisfying, too.

    This is true for PvE, for sure. The mag size is really limiting. But it's an animal in PvP, where such things matter less. And it disintegrates people into solar dust when you kill them, like any fusion rifle, which is awesome.

    So since now that I have 2 characters at 31 and the 3rd only mats away, I decided to do some PVP again (it's been a while). One of the reason is because I want to buy the Vanquisher Auto-rifle from the new Monarchy vendor. The only post DLC auto-rifle that doesn't have low impact and can still get to 331 damage.

    So I start playing and notice (and again, it might have been like this before but it's been a while) that you only get 3 crucible marks for a victory and 2 for a defeat (swear it used to be 5 marks for a victory and 3 for a defeat). The Vanquisher Auto-rifle require 150 marks to buy. This means that I'll need to play at the minimum 50 matches of crucible if I only get wins. More likely 75+ matches. That seems insanely high compared to the amount of vandguards marks we get from Strikes/nightly/weekly. Seems unbalance to me.

    I agree with you that the crucible payout is too low, especially given that four vendors take crucible marks, but only one takes vanguard, but I believe their thinking is that it takes about the same time to do two crucible matches as it does to run a single Roc strike, and both potentially yield 6 marks. Could be wrong though, they might just be jerks.
