    Just poking through the Grimoire... plotting my way to overhauling @Corporal Carl‌'s Grimoire score.

    Has anyone else noticed that the grimoire card for the Eyes of Crota shows an Ogre?

    Pretty sure they were acolytes or am I remembering incorrectly?

    This game never ceases to try and get me hooked on scout rifles and machine guns. They populate the VAST majority of my weapon drops. I have broken down more of these weapons than I have ever gotten any other type to drop. It's not like I even hate them. They simply aren't my preferred weapon choice. I have gotten ONE hand cannon of legendary quality to ever drop. I have personally witnessed four people get Hawkmoon, and I can't even get a fatebringer. Guardians, what can I do?

    It was worse.

    I got eight Ascendant Shards.

    I... finally... made... it..... I'm at the last bit after the tank if anyone wants to join me to down Valus in the Nightmare weekly.

    Killing that tank took... a lot of grenades. I have shitty rocket launchers, so I had to make do with Thorn and grenades :pop:

    SO what I have read regarding people datamining damage, it seems once you're the same level as the enemy it caps (like assuming maxed weapon attack, you do the same damage to a level 30 while you are 30 or 31). Is there value in being over leveled? Like, do you take less damage from 30 if you're 31?

    There is a reduction in your damage output against PVE enemies that are a higher level than you. 1 level = ~30% less, 2 = ~40%, 3 = ~50%. If you are 4 or more levels below the enemy you do no damage. There is no increase in damage output against enemies at the same or lower level than you. At level 31 you will do 100% damage to a level 31 enemy and you will do 100% damage to a level 2 enemy, even though the actual damage numbers aren't the same. Weapons do a base level of damage against level 1 enemies. That damage goes up 7% per enemy level until you reach the weapon's damage cap where the level = attack / 15. So a 300 attack weapon will hit its damage cap at level 20 enemies, a 331 attack weapon will do max damage against level 22 enemies. But due to those extra levels of damage scaling, a 331 attack weapon will do 14% more damage than a 300 attack weapon and 30% more damage than a 267 attack weapon against level 22+ enemies.

    Enemies higher level than you do hit harder. So it does help to be at least even level with them. Enemies lower level than you may have a damage reduction against you, but given that level 2 enemies still hurt even at level 31, I don't think it's that much and it probably caps after a few levels.

    Just remember that half the people you meet are below average intelligence.

    No, they're the 'Forsaken', they're listed under a separate grimoire card.

    Still an ogre, but framed at a jaunty designer angle.

    Thanks to AngryPuppyEsq joining up and carrying me through Valus, we both have now completed that horrible Nightmare run.

    Legendary Shotgun for him, and a Legendary Rocket launcher for me. Better than shards or coins, I'll take it!

    I got shards from the nightfall. Many thanks to Squeeze for doing most of the work. I need a better auto rifle or a scout rifle or even a pulse rifle. Something with range. The Last Word is awesome, but it pushes me to be even more aggressive and reckless, which doesn't work so well with most nightfall or weeklies.

    Well, I decided to do a more precise timing of our group's Crota runs using a stopwatch. Not sure why, maybe add some fun?

    First: 38 mins 12 secs 79 ms
    Second: 37 mins 19 secs 47 ms

    We did a stupid wipe in the first one, so technically we could've been a lot faster there. Guess we have something to work on for the 3rd run.

    We also wiped on the bridge the first run. So we can get that time down significantly on a clean run.

    We could also probably cut the giant robot-related chatter and drop Crota in 3 tries instead of 5.

    I use DestinyTracker to see where the missing points are; some things are a bit dodgy, like saying you don't have a basic card or what, but my nearest point upgrades are something of:
    - 400 pulse rifle kills for rank 3
    - 900 sniper rifle kills for rank 3
    - A few hundred shotgun kills for rank 3
    - 13 kills as a hunter in the Crucible
    - some 100-150? Kill as a Titan in the Crucible
    - Loads of kill a hunter/Titan/warlock in the Crucible
    - It seems I might get to the 125 kills of Ogres one day soon
    - Though 125 Hydras is still far away
    - And those are only rank 2, rank 3 is 250 kills? That may happen somewhere next year or so...
    - I still need to win loads of Skirmishes and Salvages, and a bit of Clashes
    - But Rumbles? Hahahahaha...hahaha...ha...sigh

    Maybe we should team up for the Salvage one when salvage is around ;-)

    If everything goes well tomorrow, I should be able to hit 32 on the Titan as well as max out one or more raid weapons, depending on leftover mats.

    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.

    Crazy thought regarding the cabal. Maybe they can't leave mars? I mean there tech is pretty "mundane" compared to say the vex or hive, and all we ever see of their Air Force are those little dropships. I mean despite having an "exclusion zone" it's entirely ground based, we never see a cabal starship of any kind, and we get to see mars from space everytime we load the planet.

    There is also that grimoire card where Rasputin bombs them from space, and the bases they have on mars must of taken significant time to build. Maybe they turned up, invaded, got their ships destroyed by warsats and Rasputin and are now stuck?

    If you look up at the sky on Bastion you can clearly see the Cabal Space forces.

    That, and when you kill Valus the Vanguard mentions that more Cabal will arrive to take his place.

    Imo, while I can't speak for alien logic, human understanding on war is that its foolish to start another fight when you haven't finish the first. Cabal show up on Mars, fight the Vex and Guardians. Like, if they can't hold one planet why try to take more?
