    Ugghhhh Omnigul

    At least it has arc

    The only problem is that with arc the best cheese strategy won't even work because her blasts will kill in like half a second.

    But having a burn at all means that the fight shouldn't take that long. Its just the same pain it always is because Omnigul is a terribly designed boss encounter.

    I might just skip the nightfall this week...

    I'm leaning toward this as well. IB will probably be most of my focus. I might even skip the weekly, though maybe not. I have over 80 strange coins already and I don't see Xur selling Hawkmoon, Thunderlord, and Third Man all in one week. Could afford it all anyway, I think.

    I don't need to do the iron banner (all I need are boots for my hunter but I missed out on them last time). Armor options are cool and a couple of guns are nice but the real reward is a goddamn spaceship that isn't poop brown or battleship gray. Which is random.

    So what's the chance that Ironic Bandaras will be nothing but Bread Death all over the place? Makes me think that Bungie modified Xur to offer it to balance test the Pulse Rifle buffs. If so, I'll go MIDA and outrange everyone. Still thinking about my load out for this one.

    I know that I'm planning on using my Red Death at least a little bit of my time in there. The bounty is no longer Auto Rifles only, you can use any primary weapon (Auto Rifle, Pulse Rifle, Handcannon, Scout Rifle). So, hopefully there will be a wider variety of weapons. But with the regen perk and the Pulse Rifle buff, I'm pretty sure that Red Death will be out in full force all week long.

    I'm wondering whether they're keeping the Osiris thing back while they try to find a good balance for PVE. At the moment it still kind of feels like they're fishtailing, overcompensating for every correction while trying to make everything feel fair and equal. While they're probably pleased that pulse rifles are significantly more popular, I wouldn't be surprised if they feel they went a bit too far and need to bring that back down slightly.

    Red Death probably, its pretty stable and heals you to full after each kill.

    Bad Juju handles worse than Red Death, SUROS was hit hard by the nerf, Mythoclasts strength is in close to mid range, I dont know about Hawkmoon.

    I'd use Red Death on maps with long sightlines and Mythoclast on maps with short sightlines.

    SGA/FYI Mythoclast does not count towards the IB headshot bounty. I'm rather annoyed by that because it was going to be my go to gun for the event. Looks like I'll be choosing between Red Death, Suros, and Hawkmoon then.

  • MarikirMarikir Registered User regular
    Besides the Red Death I just got to it's signature upgrade, I also have an upgraded Suros and an unupgraded Suros for testing purposes. I could also use a Thorn, I suppose. It's the bounties that I'm concerned about initially. I guess it will all depend on how steady my hands are when I get on later.

    Mythoclast kills count for the "Perform X with Secondary weapons" bounties so it's not a big surprise that they don't for the updated IB headshot bounty.

    Really I'd be more upset if they fixed that bug. Don't take away my easy (regular schedule) bounties!

    Yeah, that's true. IB is the one week where I wish it counted as a primary weapon for that bounty. Since I care for more for PVE than PVP being able to finish the fusion rifle bounty in 2 minutes or less on Defense of the Warmind with a Mythoclast is fantastic.

    Try to do a normal Crucible match after playing Iron Banner for a while, the difference in responsivenes and lag is like night and day.

    First Iron Banner handled great but afterwards it felt like each Iron Banner got progressively worse connection wise with noticeable lag, at least for me.

    I need to learn how to solo up to the bridge in crota.

    For loot purposes, does it matter if it's hard or normal? I've never done any raids (hint hint :P ) so I don't have Hard unlocked. Is there still a chance for a element primary in normal?

    As far as I remember you dont have to unlock hard? just be level 30+

    Primary Weapons only drops in Hard Mode.

    Crota's End Normal Maze drops shards/energies/Gloves and Hard Mode Maze drops Oversoul Edict (Arc Primary Pulse Rifle)/shards/energies/Gloves.

    Elemental primaries only drop from hard-mode, unfortunately.

    Primary Weapons only drops in Hard Mode, Normal is shards/energies/Gloves and Hard Mode Maze is Oversoul Edict/shards/energies/gloves.

    When I go to the strike there's no difficulty option. I just assumed that meant you had to clear it on normal first.

    So...WTB a normal Crota run...or three. :P

    The easiest option for you to get an elemental primary is finding a Hunter who will solo the Maze and will let you ride his coat tails to get a possible Oversoul Edict out of it, I'm doing it for my friend later, but I'm on Xbox One and I'm guessing you are on PS4?

    You can still be invited to Crotas End Hard Mode if you are level 30+ even if you cant select it yourself for some reason.

    I've tried to get my friend this stupid gun for 3 weeks now, its even an Arc Nightfall this week, it better drop for him already, I've personally dismantled 8 Oversoul Edicts, yet it doesnt drop for him, he did however get perfect Titan gloves the very first run...

    You do if you're the one selecting the raid. If you're in a fire-team that requirement doesn't matter so long as the party leader can get in.

    Cool beans.

    I'm PS4, yeah. I'll be hopping on in a bit to try to knock out the nightfalls, or at least the weekly heroics.

    If anyone happens to be doing the run, I'd really appreciate an invite. I don't think my warlock is quite 30 yet, but maybe could be, but both hunter and titan can get to 31 no problems.

    No, but it does affect Crucible or Faction rep, which you earn each match as well. For that reason, I'd still start the week with the Nightfall as always.

    I'll probably be in no rush to start the Iron Banana, last time I started Friday and easily got to rank 4 by Sunday. Imo, the terribly low tempered buff the first few days hardly makes it worth it.
