    My grasp does bonus Fallen damage. Between that and @Brogey 's bonus shank damage we will RULE this new raid. RULE I SAY.

    Flawless Raider is like an anti-achievement to me. One of my main objectives in raids is pushing AFK people off of cliffs. I would much rather be able to say that I downed Mugen than Oryx.

    I signed up since I'll be around tonight but it is no problem for me to step aside if one of the reserves can make it.

    I'm mostly doing it because I haven't done Crota in forever and the outside chance of a crux.

    I remember the broad brushstrokes of the raid but I'm sure I'll have forgotten some of the finer points. Crota is a shorter raid with easier mechanics for the most part if memory serves so we should hopefully get through it without too much of a hassle.

    More like blood for the hole god. We did the bridge with only one failure, and that was because we weren't listening to the guy who knew what to do. We had at least four party wipes from the holes in the lantern path.

    On the whole, the tunings seem really positive. But that change to ToM is just "bwuh?" I guess it may have someone invalidated an encounter in the new raid.

    Also, such trolling here:

    You will only find small bug fixes for 2.4.0 for this weapon category. However, as a preview to Rise of Iron, newly minted low rate of fire hand cannons have a higher maximum possible range stat, giving players a distinct reason to choose that type of weapon.
    • Fixed an issue where the hand cannon Zaouli's Bane's rate of Fire stat would display incorrectly
    • Fixed an issue where the Taken King Vanguard and Armsday Hand Cannons (Down and Doubt 00-0, Kumakatok HC4) stats would display incorrectly.

    Totally biased opinions on weapon tuning:

    Bad:
    ToM nerf (middle Titans on Oryx will probably still be a thing, they'll just use snipers/MG?)
    No change to Hand Cannon RNG

    Good:
    No nerf to scout rifles
    Surplus buff (new Field Scout?)

    Meh:
    pretty much everything else - minor changes to trash-tier perks don't make them desirable.

    I think my favorite bit is it doesn't fix the interaction between ToM and the Exposure modifier so you know, won't stop people exploiting it on some places.

    I was going to say "Yea but it will be such low light..." but then I remembered they'll never get to use that out again. Well maybe with Destiny 2.

    My favorite bit is where they talk about how they want it to shine in the raid right before they cripple it for the most important use in the raid.

    Intended use for ToM is inside the Aura of Immortality (DPS on Sisters, staggering Oryx, clearing encounter area pre-Blight explosion). Using Blessing Titans in mid is a player-created strat that BNG obviously disapproves of.

    Moreover, dancing in and out of Blessing bubbles with ToM was used in lots of other activities outside the raid. It's extremely high DPS if you're coordinated.

    Edit: Not saying that I approve of the nerf, just that I understand why they did it.
