    Also isn't 90-94% too low for tier 12? I thought everything had to be 96% or above

    After weeks of nothing but class items, Variks finally gave me a Soulstealer's Claw:
    • Red Dot-OES / Red Dot-ORES
    • Hammer Forged / Hand-laid Stock
    • Single Point Sling
    • Rangefinder / Unflinching

    Is it worth using without Counterbalance, though? Will HLS give me enough stability, or do I really need CB to correct the recoil?

  • Apothe0sisApothe0sis Have you ever questioned the nature of your reality? Registered User regular
    Has to be 97% average. So that range can work if you have a mostly gold tiers.

    Good point. If anyone still needs the Calcified Fragments for Oryx Challenge Mode or Thalnok, it might be a good idea to get them done before Thursday. Occasionally big updates with server resets can bump up the rotation.

    Reddit is showing "All Day Game Maintenance & Downtime - 2016/09/08 - 08:00 TO: 16:00 PDT. Companion App & API will be limited."

    Edit - Found it...

    Destiny Update 2.4.0 Coming Soon™
    Destiny Update 2.4.0 will become available for download to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles on September 8th, 2016. Server Maintenance and Downtime will also occur on this date, from 8:00 AM through 4:00 PM PDT. Once maintenance has concluded, players may proceed to download Destiny Update 2.4.0.

    Along with this extended downtime, Bungie.net and Destiny Companion App functionality will be limited. The conclusion of maintenance will be announced through @BungieHelp, followed by the publication of Update 2.4.0 patch notes to the Game Updates page.


    So yeah, who knows what'll be live after they reset everything after a full day of downtime.

    T12 is when you have stat points on your gear such that you can have 12 total levels of Disc/Int/Str. With the very best rolls you can hit it with the light level being around 335.

    As someone who has spent roughly 75% of the year as a Stormcaller, I'll tell you that over the past couple of months it has been harder (for me) to pull off full team wiping sweeps, and that's with me getting pretty decent at zigzagging blinks when pushing in at dudes with high ROF autorifles. Maybe I've just gotten rusty, but I think it has become more difficult, perhaps the result of Stormcaller nerfs, teamshooting, and knowing how to avoid a Stormtrance (verticality, at least when you're up against me).

    The Triumphs dream is dead. It's a little depressing that the LFG masses refuse to take on anyone lower than LL330 for content that was beatable before that rank was even obtainable.

    On the plus side I was able to finish up my First Curse and NTTE quests so now ignoring the swords (and I have been) the only exotic weapons I'm missing are The Jade Rabbit and Zen Meteor. Solidarity with the XBros! End exclusivity now!

    Returned to trials for the first time in ages with a few people, didn't make it to the lighthouse. :P

    I got arms and a shotgun that was pretty interesting.

    Listening to @Brogey get excited was thoroughly amusing. But not as fun as listening to @Arteen's psuedo-defeatism. It was like the perfect foil.

    Yea, the impression I got was this was where they break a thing so they can maybe possible fix a thing later on. To be fair, clan function in the game right now isn't exactly much so breaking it isn't that big a deal.

    Sterling Treasures
    Destiny Update 2.4.0, will also change the ways in which players acquire Sterling Treasures. Starting September 8th 2016, Players may only acquire one Sterling Treasure per week, through the Level 41 Prison of Elders playlist.

    On September 20th 2016, with the launch of Destiny: Rise of Iron, the Eververse Trading Co. will no longer sell Sterling Treasure for Silver. Sterling Treasure will be replaced with Radiant Treasures, which contain Silver Dust, and all new Ornaments.

    First thing I noticed was the Sterling Boxes going from 3 to 1.

    Just like the Passage coin drop rate. (which Bungie said was bugged originally, sure they were. :wonk: )

    Also, this one @ObiFett will love, real money Ornament purchases, I thought Ornaments were touted as a reward for doing something tough, like going Flawless or beating the HM raid?

    Sirialis on
  • ObiFettObiFett Use the Force As You WishRegistered User regular
    I think pretty much everyone saw Ornaments as being sold for real money

    The drop from a possible 3 free Sterling Treasures a week down to 1 REALLY sucks, though. It will hopefully be made up for when Silver Dust can be gained from playing.

    Money is involved

    No way does Sterling Treasure give any new options.

    In fact, they are probably changing to Radiant Treasures to specifically prevent people from doing exactly that

    Yeah, but doing one round of either to get your Treasure, wouldn't you rather CoE?
    If you could, you could earn your weekly Treasure, 30k CoE reward, end of activity drops, plus you can rush CoE 10 times more easily than PoE (since Prison forces you to wait for waves...and five whole rounds).

    I would just assume it would be stapled onto the end of a completed CoE card (90k points)
