[Destiny] Rise of Iron: "Wizirds are the worst. The WORST."

We called it the Traveler, and its arrival changed us forever. Great cities were built on Mars and Venus; Mercury became a garden world. Human lifespan tripled. It was a time of miracles. We stared out at the galaxy and knew that it was our Destiny to walk in the light of other stars.

But the Traveler had an enemy. A Darkness - which had hunted it for eons, across the black gulfs of space, centuries after our Golden Age began. This Darkness... found us. And that was the end of everything.


That is, until Peter Dinklage Nolan North found you, Guardian!

Destiny: Penny Arcade G&T Saves the Universe and Everything in It is an online multiplayer action role-playing sci-fi-fantasy *deep breath* first-person shooter for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, and Xbox 360 and the first title in a proposed 10-year, zillion-dollar franchise from Bungie and Activision. It’s MMO-like – think gear, skill trees, leveling up, and party play – with an emphasis on exploration and discovery. As of September 15, 2015, we have entered Year Two of Destiny, which has ushered in a host of new content, quality of life changes, UI improvements, weapon balance tweaks, and whole new ways to play. At its core, Destiny is still a cooperative role-playing FPS with levels and rep to grind and new and exciting gear and weapons to seek out. But it's getting a whole lot bigger with version 2.0 and its biggest expansion yet, The Taken King.

Still relevant: The game is set in our own solar system, 700 years in the future, following a prosperous period of exploration and colonization ushered in by the arrival of the “Traveler,” a mysterious celestial body (pictured above). The Golden Age came to an abrupt end as a result of a momentous event called “the Collapse,” a calamity that wiped out human colonies everywhere. Humanity has retreated to the Last City on Earth, our shared home and the launching point for our journey back to the stars, and from within its walls, we have begun to rebuild. We have begun to fight back. But even as we stand tall, our Light visible in the canyons and craters of far-off worlds, blinding our enemies with its brilliance, the Darkness threatens to close in around us. And everything we know about our enemy is about to change.

The Taken King

In Year One of Destiny, we the Wise and Noble Guardians of Pax Arcadia traveled through space and time in defense of Human, Awoken, and Exo, rising to meet every challenge and ultimately emerging from a year's worth of adventures bearing the spoils of war and the bounty of exotic weapons, sturdy and stylish armor, fortune, and fame. Today, the Tower stands because of the bravery and sacrifice of our ranks. Our legend is known far and wide across the bloodied fields of the Crucible. We have earned the favor of the Queen and now protect her Reef from those who would tear it apart.

At times, our successes seemed inevitable, almost routine. We traveled backward and forward through time; we crushed our foes underfoot in encounter after encounter; we destroyed the heart of a god - more than once. But we faced trials as well, true challenges that required complete cooperation and tested our limits, especially when we plunged into the depths of the Dark Below and stood face-to-hideous-face with Crota, Hive Prince and Son of Oryx. In time, he fell like the rest. We took his wretched, cursed husk and held it aloft as a trophy.

Now a deeper Darkness stirs. From the shadows beyond, Oryx himself has learned of our triumph, and he will not abide our insolence, our courage - our Legend. He is assembling a mysterious, twisted force that he plans to unleash upon our world. It is our duty to stop him. Prepare yourselves, Arcadians: the Taken King comes for us all.

Join the ranks of Pax Arcadia! Our clan is on both systems!
(and with the new firmware, we now have a PS4 Community!)

oys3p1lw64ty.png

We've assembled a Bungie.net group - and within that group, a PlayStation clan and an Xbox clan - so that PA G&Ters can play together. We're Pax Arcadia, and we're currently making our way through endgame content and crushing the Crucible in six-man fireteams on a nightly basis!

Edit (Sept. 22, 2015): We presently have room in the PA clan on Xbox One, but we're full up at the 100-person cap on the PS4 side for both PA and PA2. That being said, we're typically cycling people out for inactivity lasting over six months and spots tend to open up very frequently! Follow the instructions below!

To join:
1. Send @GMaster7 (on the PS side) or @ObiFett (on the Xbox side) - or preferably, both - a PM, letting us know that you're joining the group(s) and applying to the clan.
2. Join the Bungie.net group for Pax Arcadia (right here, at this link). If necessary, you can hit up the group for Pax Arcadia II (right here), either instead or in addition, and join that, too. You don't need admin approval to join the groups.
3. Once you're in one or both Bungie.net groups, click "Set as PlayStation Clan" in the banner if you're on PS3/PS4 or "Set as Xbox Clan" in Pax Arcadia's banner if you're on 360/XB1 to officially request admission to that group's respective clan (either PA or PA2). If you're on PSN, you'll probably need to apply to PA2, the overflow clan. If you're on Xbox, you can apply to PA and don't need to mess with PA2.
4. Add yourself to the Pax Arcadia Mega-Roster that we've created to keep track of membership. Use the tabs at the bottom to select your console, and put yourself at the bottom of your tab's list. We'll bump you up to your proper alphabetical placement.
5. If you've sent us a PM and added yourself to the Mega-Roster, we'll accept you as soon as we can.
6. Friend some PAers, hop online, and take to the skies in the name of Pax Arcadia!

Find teammates with The100.io!

If you're looking for teammates for any activity, check out PA's console-specific groups on The100.io, right here:

    I've been giving you too much crap for not liking good guns. I was taught that for self-defense, your best pistol is your most comfortable pistol, because it will be your most accurate pistol. The same is true for Destiny, your best gun is your most comfortable. However, because we do not have the real-world difficulty of guns not matching hands, it behooves us to become familiar and comfortable with the best meta weapons. Like Hawksaw. Or Hawkmoon.

    Basic Warlock question incoming... and I know I could answer my own question by just logging into destiny, but I'm in a rotation at work and might not be able to fire up my PS4 for a few days.

    Sunbreakers give you extra duration on Solar grenades and a second solar grenade. Do I get a second of any of the three types of solar grenade, or literally two "solar grenades" only and one grenade if I pick firebolt or fusion?

    It refers to the grenade known as a Solar Grenade. It's probably less confusing to Bungie, considering their Thermal nomenclature.

    Things I want to change in destiny, a running list:
    • Shotguns more consistent
    • No more sprint lock
    • Everyone has some sort of horizontal mobility mechanic
    • No more getting stuck on level geometry - like knee high dumb crap - if you hit something you slide off it, maybe after a jolt or a slight pause to punish insufficient map knowledge but I don't think that is necessary
    • Sticky grenades either have a greatly increased cool down compared to other grenades, work like scorch cannons, where to get a kill you have to hold the button for a fair while, or just don't OHK. Or all three. I hate them.
    • Snipers need to get a lot more flinch from being shot, maybe dropping out of ADS if you take a fair whack of damage. Or something that makes them less dominant
    • The last word needs to be launched into space as Bungy is categorically unable to balance it
    • Melee should work
    • Match making should make sensible decisions, like not creating unbalanced matches and then putting extras on the winning team

    Tide goes in. Tide goes out.

    welp... looks like PvE got the fun boost again this week

    Really all you'll need is a Zhalo for the nightfall (Valus) and also for the weekly heroics (Arc burn/Small arms).

    As for the CoE, it's all about precision kills with Small Arms and Berserk as the mods, so Mida or Hawkmoon your asses off!

    I'll be on tonight after work for whatever

    Being familiar with your weapon can easily be 25% of your skill level and ability. Often times I see people in games suggest you try to conform to the meta or use what is "good" when honestly to you and your style it might not be good.

    Often times the concept of the meta forgets that people are different and have different things that will click for them.

    I have a new goal!

    That goal is to get three sets of titan Spektar armor, and three sets of chroma-enabled weapons (one for each element hopefully) and color them blue, orange, and magenta for arc/solar/void. Then I can setup loadouts through Ishtar Commander and switch to them on the fly when I switch subclasses!

    Because I'm an insane person and spend a lot of time thinking about how to coordinate my look

    I'm actually kinda close to being there! I have an Arc and Void Bane of the Taken, Solar and Void sidearms (though the roll on the Solar sidearm is traaaaaaaaash), and two sets of Spektar armor, one colored blue and the other green. The blue looks incredible with the Bane equipped, especially when I'm standing in shadows. I'll see if I can get some pics tonight.

    And I had similar Remote action to @cB557, mine was during the Inferno Control playlist a week or so back. http://imgur.com/srYGTag

    Mountaintop quest finished. It was honestly not that hard except for some of the early salvage mode stuff where you actually had to do objectives and every team I ran into were Trials pros. Of course, this is after the changes to the original Mountaintop questline which good fucking lord I'm glad I didn't have to do that

    I've never done any raids, and would love to give a shot to the normal mode of any of them.

    Just a note: while HM of earlier raids still penalize death in a stupid manner, none of the encounters are as punishing for people learning the raid as those in King's Fall. I bring this up only because it's more likely that we'd be doing HM Classic Raids, as folks like Holy would be doing it in part for the HM specific drops.

    So, if you see folks organizing a HM VOG or HM Crota, don't be afraid to sign up. Assuming a given groups has 3+ players familiar with the raid, they can each be completed in about an hour, though VOG has some possible speedbumps along the way.

    PS4 peeps, is there interest in doing VoG/Crota.
    Also holy shit we didn't do a Croata/Oryx Fathers Day Kill event.
    Suppose this week may be a good time for that. I'll try and nab some checkpoints if possible.

    yessss. i've never done crota before so i'd love to see that. and i really should get that VoG quest to get that exotic (ntte?) one day too. i've also never done the original prison of elder raids (skolas and friends) either so if there's interest in doing those count me in

    I hate precision bonus.

    It is the least exploitable and the most likely to require bonus runs.

    one guy runs around pegging shit with an auto rifle but never killing, another tags ones not yet tagged while finishing off guys with precision and the last guy focuses solely on precision kills using mida or Hawkmoon or whatever their precision favorite is...

    saw teams this morning easily hitting 60-70k a full run

    Right, but that works for literally any, more or less and requires too much collaboration.

    yeah if i have to talk to someone while doing challenge then i consider that run a failure.

    Skolas is not anything interesting, but I will admit that Queen's Web is a top-notch shader in the Destiny Fashion metagame.

    I really enjoyed the Skolas fight when it was hard

    Looking back on it that fight was just around the line for being too brittle. With sunsingers it was fine but without them it could be wipe time if the wrong person died at the wrong time. Still, I remember plenty of recoveries even with pubbie groups.

    Which is my chief complaint with Raid design right now. Execution has to be perfect or it fucks the entire encounter which is really not a Great Moments Generator.
