    Titan Pro Tip bears repeating:

    Striker
    With juggernaut perk
    Equip sword
    Get kills.

    Seriously it is great even without ammo. Got 9 kills in first Rift match trying it.

    With ammo...

    Totally overpowered. Unbelievable.
    I've not had good luck with it. Admittedly I don't know the maps well enough to know where all the short-sightline stalking paths are, but I struggle to remember a kill that I secured because of jugg.

    If my shield doesn't shatter before I even get into range, I'm usually immediately shotgunned after the first hit.

    I've come to terms with losing Y1 weapons (the Y2 arsenal is crazy fun so far), but I do wish they had given us a way to bring forward the Y1 Raid class items. I miss my Shattered Vault Cloak and Neon Disco Titan Buttflap.

    My interpretation now is that the black garden was a space created by the Vex who had been given the worship protocol by the Quria mind.

    This makes me wonder if the Vault of Glass was part of the Quria protocol, or part of one of the other Vex minds. It seems the Vex deliberately diversify into factions to try to have a version that will outlive the universe no matter what happens, unlike the Oryx led Hive who want to forcefully be the single strongest, ratherratherthan diversifying.

    It also makes me wonder if we'll see another Vex version later, one unrelated to the black garden. Maybe even one not fundamentally opposed to us, which we could ally with? Or else it'll be another, later big bad that's different. [\spoiler]

    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.

    Yeah, that's a big give away. I've always felt like the Mythoclast could have something to do with Osiris, or potentially the Ishtar Collective scientists or both. Both of whom are supposedly traversing the Vex time gates.

    Okay, any Xbone folks wanna put together a raid for today? I have all day today so time is flexible. My friend ded would also like in. So I need four more people. Reply to this post and tell me a good time for you. If we get a lot of responses we could even schedule two raids for today, either running concurrently or consecutively.

    Hi Thread!

    I know most of you guys won't care but this is a big deal for me. I had a baby last year a week before Destiny came out. I played Destiny solo for months in short bursts late at night, it got me through a rough time. Eventually I hit level 20, and then put the game down as I was confused and annoyed with what to do after that.

    Patch 2.0, and then TTK, totally reinvigorated me on the game. I love it!

    Last night after a few weeks of paying through Expansions 1 and 2, some crucible, and maybe 1/3rd of TTK I hit level 40 and I just wanted to share. My guy is not cool or anything, I still don't really know what I'm doing and I don't really have any good weapons but still, I got there!

    rog8nwtqelte.png

    It's pretty cool I think

    What the hell are you doing using Seraph Reform IIs with a Nox Umber I? I can't. This is the worst.You are the worst!

    I don't know what that means! All I did was equip the stuff with the highest light
    :(

    I'm bad at destiny

    That was my interpretation of the Garden as well.
    I haven't read all of the cards related to the Vault but it doesn't seem related to Quria and the Garden. The Vex in general want to eliminate everything in the universe that isn't Vex, so it's no wonder that they try to kill everybody regardless of which Vex faction/submind/whatever they belong to.

    Everything in the Vault, though, seems to be focused on Atheon and time manipulation using Oracles. The Nexus, Undying, and Regenerative Minds don't really seem Hive/Worm/Darkness-focused either.

    There's a special PVP mode today: Zone Control. Like Control, but kills don't count for anything, you just have to hold zones for as a long as possible.

    10 Marks to the victors.

    EDIT: I feel like this is what Control should always be like. But FYI: folks do not understand how different this is from normal Control and will just go kill hunting for no reason.

    So... King of the Hill and CTF have been added to Destiny in year 2, pretty much. Was wondering what that mode was (saw it in the app).

    @Hardtarget: I'm just messing with you, you're fine! :P

    I don't care what my Fireteam says, once I get to Oryx, I'm going to at the bare minimum shoot him in his stupid face at least once with a gun powered by his dead son.

    I'm pretty sure hitting Oryx in the face with his dead son is the Hive equivalent of a warm hug and kiss on the cheek. He'd be so grateful he'd give you your death as a welcome gift.

    Happily, the only exotic weapon I currently have is a Boolean, and I'm okay with swapping that for a different scout rifle. Ideally "full auto".

    The most fun I've had was the roll I got with both full auto and explosive rounds on a high-ROF scout. Just awesome. I like Boolean, but I'm getting finger cramps from having to pull the trigger over and over that fast to keep the bullets going.


    Edit: Looks like Doom can roll full auto, yep. Mmm. One of the Armsday scouts can as well, so I'm going to be trying for that. I figure the Vanguard scout isn't too awful either.

    Hm. Not according to destinydb, but I'll take your word on that one. (http://www.destinydb.com/items/2918358302-doom-of-chelchis#14.36czfl;15.6,0,0)

    I got a full-auto explosive rounds too, and I was really excited about that because fuck yeah GMG, but I actually was having way less fun after I unlocked full auto on it. I enjoy my Icarus/Firefly one way more.

    I saw Broman using the Doom and his didn't seem to be Full Auto, so I'm going to assume that final perk is in fact random.
