    I dropped about 80 Strange Coins buying 3oC last week, trying to get a Zhalo. I got 7 Crests of Alpha Lupi, two Telestos and a Hawkmoon. All I had to do was wait til today. Now I only have coins for two items, but I want three llol

    It's funny, because while I would really like a Graviton Forfeit for my hunter, the steep cost of infusing exotics has really killed my interest in any of Xur's 280s. It feels like buying from him unlocks my collectors spot rather than giving me a usable item, because I don't have 3-4 more shards and 310 items laying around to infuse it up. I'm still stuck using coins to grind for engrams that might decrypt at a usable level.

    Jeezy peezy, it's Xur again already?

    Crazy.

    Cool he's got Zhalo. I finally got one yesterday, but I don't feel bad. I haven't actually used it yet because I also got several 310 replacements of exotics I already had. I'm down to Touch of Malice, Bad Juju (which, along with Red Death apparently won't show up via engrams? I ended up spending marks on Red Death yesterday) and the arc/solar swords as the only exotic weapons from y2 in the kiosk I'm missing.

    EDIT: oooh, special legacy engram. Pleaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaase give me the Y1 4th Horseman so I can stop going nuts having that missing from my kiosk! EDIT EDIT: hey, queensbreaker bow is also a special. Can that show up in the engram now? It'd be rad to get the only other not-necrochasm-because-crota-hates-me Y1 exotic I was missing along with 4th horseman.

    Finally Graviton Forfeit after nearly every helm engram has given me Skyburners Annex. Too bad it's 280 and the shard cost to get it up to 310 is pretty ridiculous. As much as I want it I may have to pass on it because getting it to 310 to match my current helm isn't really feasible.

    Zhalo is a great gun. I love it. I used my Suros in the raid last night and had to turn down the fast fire perk because it was just kicking all over the place and I was wasting a ton of ammo in every fight. That doesn't really happen to me at all with Zhalo.

    Man, this Polygon article really hit home for me in a few places.
    I can't see myself getting too deep into Halo 5's multiplayer, because if I'm gonna play an online shooter, it's gonna be the one where I get candy.
    The thing is, I'm not necessarily thrilled with the way my brain has rewired itself to prize incrementally increasing my Light level over new gaming experiences. I was able to break the cycle for something drastically different like Assassin's Creed Syndicate, so I'm not a lost cause. But for something as similar to Destiny as Halo 5, the complicated dopamine equations my brain uses to decide what I'm addicted to at any moment just don't add up.

    I have played very few other games since Destiny released a year ago. I don't really regret it, because this game is unbelievably fun and man, what an amazing community. But sometimes I do wonder if I'm missing out on other great gaming experiences. Halo had a very solid grip on me for almost 10 years, and I'm surprised to find myself a little "meh" about H5.

    I will say that my drive to "do it all" has somewhat faded. This time around, I don't really feel the need to max out all three characters and their weapons (in fact I am only just now bringing my Titan to 40), and I don't see myself running three HM King's Fall runs every week the way I did with VoG and CE. Part of that is just a function of time, as my schedule doesn't give me as much time to play as it used to, and KF still seems to take a couple hours. But I also feel like I can be a useful, contributing Guardian in the high 290s/low 300s, without feeling the need to grind to max level.

    Mind you, I'm still running multiple Nightfalls, and Heroic Strikes, and at least one Raid a week, and going out of my way to do Exotic* quests and help out other Guardians, so I probably still fall comfortably into the "heavy user" category. :razz:

    Funny (not actually funny) that all anyone ever complains about is getting Alpha Lupi after Alpha Lupi from exotic engrams and my hunter's sitting over here without having yet seen a Y2 one. In Y1, it was my Trials go-to exotic - I love it and find it endlessly useful, since I fancy myself an in-match medic of sorts, when I'm actually staying alive - and it matches my Wolf aesthetic.

    Eh... It's still useful almost everywhere at 280. Level up a few of the best weapons for use in high level challenges and the rest are for fun.

    I think that the helm is better for PvP, but I have to agree with you on the grasps for most everything else. There just aren't many PvE situations where I need keen scout AND the roll; conversely, the ability to have instant primary reload, faster sniper reload, and double smoke bomb adds just crazy amounts of utility.

    *lovely gold Exotics, yes, my preciouses!

    I find it really off-putting that Halo 5 is subtitled "Guardians". I mean it's just odd that they couldn't choose another name?

    Also aside from executions/assassinations, everything I've seen so far could arguably be said to be copied from Destiny. Ground Pound, Shoulder Charge, Angel of Light/Antigrav Thrusters and so on. Mantling is cool, but hardly unique.

    Much as I find it hard to deal with the various things in Crucible like Blink, slides, throwing knives, supers, invisibility, resurrects, pocket sand, jedi pimp slaps, and so on, I'm still grateful Destiny has them. The classes offer so much variety that doesn't appear to be present in Halo 5.

    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.

    Ugh that Alchemist's Raiment is strictly better than the 295 one I engrambled last week (pure Int roll instead of split Int/Str, "carry more ammo" instead of "find more drops") - except of course for the cost to get it from 280 to 295.
    I'm also not sure it's a ...good exotic? Better armor when in Stormcaller or reduced Arc burn doesn't necessarily seem superior to the free Landfall you get from The Impossible Machines, and I haven't really noticed "Iron to Gold" making a huge difference in grenade/melee uptime, but ...surely the Raiment must be good for something?
    tl;dr: Xuuuuuuuuur!

    It's actually just erroneous perk text that has you thinking the Xur Raiment is "strictly better". Every Raiment's text box says that the perk is "Carry more Special/Heavy ammo", but when viewed in the upgrade screen those perks turn out to be "Find more Special/Heavy ammo drops". Furthermore, it's not entirely clear that perk even functions, so it may just be broken beyond the textual mishap.
