    I don't think the Warlock Days of Iron gear looks bad

    They have better gear out there, but I definitely think hunter is by far the worst.

    Although the worst single piece is the ornamented version of the Titan helm. Which is weird because their unornamented helm is incredible looking. And then ornamented they get a weird notquitedog helm that was might have been inspired by the Hound's helm as described while wearing a blindfold.

    So the Iron Banner set is just the normal Days of Iron set without the Ornament option?

    At least they should be able to get decent perks.

    It's still possible Ornaments are available, unless it has already been datamined. The Iron packages we get totally change design when you preview the ornament, it's not just the same armor that's lit up or not. So could be they're just showing the plain version (for whatever reason) and we won't see the ornament style until we're able to access the items.

    I dont think that the Warlock Days of Iron gear (Ornamented) look bad, its just the weakest of the 3 in my opinion.

    I saw a dude on reddit mention that they dont have ornament slots, if he is right or not, I have no idea though.

    Yeah, this is 9PM for me, all the other raids this week has been 2AM.

    We need some more europeans on Xbox PA, I still love being a part of Sunday Best, but I wouldnt mind an additional raid per week right now.

    yeah, there's an hours difference between us and those times are a large part of why i rarely raid. was tempted when Jay put one up for midnight midweek, but was in his party before it and it was about 2am my time before it actually started.

    You know what? Fuck farming Legendary Marks. I'm just going to shard a ton of my hoarded gear. Most of it has sat in the Vault. Why bother keeping it? Time to just clear space and not look back. I don't use the majority of my exotics, either. The only thing that sucks is you don't get marks for sharding Y1 stuff. That's fine, I can just save the space. That way I can basically just farm engrams and have all the space in the world for them! I'll be like Scrooge McDuck with a Vault full of loot to dive into!

    But for real, I'm sharding most of my shit. I don't feel like wasting time farming marks when I can just delete stuff I never use and get the amount I need to buy a Ghost Shell and a pair of 350 legs to infuse into something I actually wear.

    Edit: Cadence Horn 4 lyfe

    I finally sharded a bunch of stuff since a lot of Y1 stuff is now re-available, like the Hunter cloaks and apparently the Queen's gear, Matador, etc.

    You can get such a huge amount of marks daily that I can't imagine it being a problem for more than a day or so

  • Forever ZefiroForever Zefiro cloaked in the midnight glory of an event horizonRegistered User regular
    For me it was more about Vault space

    But there's a ton of cool weapons to buy from Vendors now which are 150 a pop, and if you're sub 350 it can help a lot to buy the Vendor armors, so you can go through Marks pretty fast

    And of course two random purple engrams decode into 365 artifacts back to back. That let me push my light to just 369. Really need to get lucky on some skeleton keys and pop out a 373ish artifact.

    Aside from buying a ghost because those are a huge pain, I didn't really have to rely on the vendor armor

    Which is fortunate because the rolls are not very good

    So two questions as I make ny final push before raid night.

    Existing legendar engrams only drop up to 165 correct? So it would be wise to start using my purples to make that final push to 165 from 160+?

    How does raid gear drop? Is it based on your current light level or is it agnostic of that? Basically should I use my exotic Engrams and motes (for faction packages) pre raid to boost my light to get better drops or post raid since my light will be higher?

    Raid Gear drops at 365 minimum and then scaled up from there to a maximum of 385.

    I was taking up a lot of space with duplicate items (why the hell did I have three Hereafter?), and normal mode TTK raid gear. Plus weapons I'm just never going to use at all. In the end it was worth freeing up vault space just for peace of mind. Hell, I only needed to shard one thing, because I hit 70 marks after doing the daily and the crucible match. It felt good to clear out some clutter (90 marks worth, and not done yet).

  • PeenPeen Registered User regular
    Probably a dumb question, are legendaries capped like other engrams? I'm only pulling 340 out of regular blues, which I expected, but I should be ok hoping for good things when I decode the legendaries I'm getting from the daily public events, right?

    I mean I'm decoding everything but breaking almost all of it down.

    Good to know - I've hoarded Exotic and Legendary engrams for a while and I'm 361. I guess I'll try to hit... 362 or so, and then I'll (a) pop my legendaries, (b) pop my exotics, and (c) talk to Eris and (hopefully!) get an artifact.

  • cncaudatacncaudata Registered User regular
    I have forgotten to comment on one thing new in RoI that is an awesome, small change. It is now worth it to run the raid more than once per week. It's not enough worth it that you have to grind it to gear up faster, but it's a little bonus in case you want to help others finish, etc.

    That is, you get siva fragments from every boss you kill, no matter whether you've done them before or not. This, combined with how quick the raid is, makes me way more excited to hop in and help when people need it if I've already done it before.

    I had a similar plan but Eris didn't trigger a package for me at rank 3. If I do my third step of her bounty (need a stolen run win under 2 min) I'll reach 4. I hope she gives a package then

    Only Class Items sadly. Although Shiro's weekly bounties can drop things over 365. I've got a few weapons that way.

    Engrams don't have caps.

    The items they decrypt into do - when decrypted rares cap at 340, legendaries at 365 and exotics at 385/??? The quality of the engram represents the distribution of item quality.

  • Apothe0sisApothe0sis Have you ever questioned the nature of your reality? Registered User regular
    In other news one of my crucible groups turned raid team last night and we got up to the final fight before one of our number got kicked for an xbone update (!?). So we didn't get to do the final thing for the exotic pulse, which makes me very sad.

    Though, the good news is I am a pro at telling people where to stand and doing binary conversions in my brainmeats.

    ah fair enough, it was class items i was getting earlier so that would explain it.

    And gloves and helms. I think any armour can drop, it's just not likely.

    Huuuuuuuuuuuuuuge thanks to Motorboat Kitten for taking me on my first trip through Wrath of the Machine. I walked away with the Scout, the Auto, the Shotgun, and the Rocket Launcher, plus boots, chest, and a high-level artifact...not to mention a couple Exotic engrams.
    We even did the binary-decoding thing to start off the Outbreak Prime quest.

    Oh, and I gained a whopping 10 LIGHT LEVELS. Walked in 352, walked out 362. I pretty much skipped the entire "grind out Strikes for hours and hours" phase. Basically Motorboat Kitten is incredible people and I heart you all forever and ever.

    Do some faction rank ups first. And use your exotics to fill in the gaps that the factions won't provide. Then do a few more faction rank ups.

    How in the wide world of sports did you get so many bloody drops?!
    I think our first blind run each of us got two or three drops, including using our keys. Do the extra cheats drop that much loot??

    Do you think I'm made of patience and time? Pun intended, and gun also intended?!

    Whatever I am tmrw/Sat, that's where I am for Trials and raiding this wknd. I would love to level NM a few more times in the 360s and see what I get. But I have a date with a Zamboni. I'm popping all of my engrams pre-raid.
