    how do ships work this time around? is there a kiosk or something?

    edit: also, I applied that code for the preorder and none of the stuff was mailed to me? will it come at level 20 or something?

    They work like they always have. Amanda Holiday sells base models, you can get Blues, Purples and Exotics as rewards from random things. I actually haven't seen any kiosks for what you've gained. But then again -- I wasn't looking.

    did you also redeem them again on your profile?

    i got the xp boost one in the postmaster after doing that

    the sparrow you don't get until you complete the campaign and unlock the ability to use sparrows (even though you can get other sparrows from eververse before doing that), apparently

    Is there any chance I can convince people to post in the ps4 clan threads (or here, or both) if you're willing to have folks join what you're doing. It it sure feels overwhelming for me to try to find folks to play with at the moment. I've had ok luck because I did play with a bunch of folks during D1 and y'all have been beautiful about doing stuff together so far.

    However, for folks coming back, for folks looking for help, etc., I can imagine it's not really approachable. It breaks my heart when I see 7 or 8 different games with solo or even pair players. Then when I want to find someone or help out, I need to join 5 different parties (if there are parties) to find out what folks are up to. Some folks like to do bits solo and that is totally ok, but if you want company, take 10 seconds to post quick, or spam party invites, or something.

    I know this is a long shot, but I am certain we'd be having more fun, and maybe more noticeably, we'd have more people still playing the game in 3 months, if everyone could always find someone to play with.

    TLDR, love playing with you all, would like to do it more.

    I was super pumped when I got my first exotic ship, but then let down when I realized they are just regular ships with fancier paint patterns. I was expecting some nice particle effects or something.

    Ships are cosmetic envy machines. Although the neat gold flare on spawn is cool.

    Yeah, mine does an hologram of that bunny from Jade Rabbit. It's pretty neat, I had no idea what caused it to start doing that when I zone in!

    Coolio, I'll take you up on that this morning after I get back from the store.

    Also, and maybe it's just me? But I'm not digging what they did with Nightstalker in Destiny2. There's just something weird and finnicky about it from how I used to play it verses how I play it now. I don't know why light the pack is on the multi-arrow with the shitty tethers but maybe that's it?

    Edit: To elaborate - When I want to make orbs, I go gunslinger now. three precision shots bada bing bada boom, 6+ orbs right? Arcstrider has insane sustainability and crowd control. I don't get Nightstalker's role here.

    I wasn't a huge fan of dawnbreaker as a warlock, good not great, but palpatine (I forget what they called the arc class) is now my jam favorite. The little arc soul is super useful.

    I would like some money because these are artisanal nuggets of wisdom philistine.

    @Qanamil awesome man! I'll add you on psn. I'm not super optimistic it'll work but it's worth a shot.

    Fauxromano right?

    What's your LL? Recommended for this quest is 260 I think? If you're a lot lower than that we could probably still slug throug it just not sure it'd be fun for you

    I'm also fine with having a week to bank stuff.

    I'm still dragging ass getting my Warlock to 20 and finishing the campaign.

    Keep getting distracted running lost sectors for loot and tokens.

    Oh, just in the 220s right now, but I'm sure I'll get up to at least doable range quick enough.

    okay, I'll check out the site directly. I assumed using the dlc code/installing it would have sufficed.

    Nightstalker's role is still to amp damage for the team with tethers. Also the bottom tree gives you 3 arrows and it has the perk that shares damage and makes them explode. Idk, I've really liked it

    Have to say I'm feeling a bit underwhelmed with hunters which makes me sad.

    Of the 3 sub-classes gunslinger is my favourite but the class ability just feels so meh. I'm hoping against hope there is an exotic or something that can drop the cool down on the dodge reload because as it is, it's not super useful for gunslinger to get a free reload once in a while. With me forgetting about it 50% of the time and manually reloading.

    I'd love to see an exotic or something that drops the cool down for the dodge reload on precision hits. Melee dodge can be fun with the recharge dodge on kill and recharge melee on dodge. Had fun killing a pack of hounds with that but it loses its effectiveness on bigger targets.

    Thinking I may have to main Titan or something for D2.

    I will miss my Blessing of Light and Helm of Saint-14, but man I'm glad Ward of Dawn got into the game in any aspect. I super loved in the beta being able to choose between an offensive or defensive use of my super.

    I seriously do not understand why they removed ships/sparrows from collections in D2. Shaders are a whole other thing, but ships and sparrows...why?

    EDIT: I also have a question about treasure maps: is there any reason to hold onto the white items that drop? They don't seem to serve any function I can see, but I know in D1, they sometimes eventually would. Also the rewards for the maps are pretty much horrible it seems. I did 5 I think and 3 of them didn't have anything but glimmer and white items.

    I'm a few hours into the campaign now (and more to come tonight!). Super happy with a lot of things so far. Titan supers getting to just should smash everything is fun (and Captain America mode!). On Titan I did the two public events:
    Spider tank war with the energy balls, all kinds of nostalgia. Even more fun when you end up with 3-6 people all firing away.
    Kill the Wizard event felt like a mini raid, did it with 3 people a few times. It really got me excited for getting gear that I really like and going into events like that.

    Wasn't happy with power weapons until I was able to buy a rocket from Sloane and everything was right in the world again.

    Quick thoughts from last night:

    1. Nightfall was awesome; took us two attempts, but it provided the ideal amount of challenge and tension, demanding coordination and communication. Also, me and @squall99x getting crushed by a Cabal-Ball on the elevator up to the boss was goddamn hilarious.
    2. I have now had Starfire Protocol drop 3 times. Curse you, RNG!
    3. Thankfully Flashpoint yielded a 280 Vigilance Wing.
    4. I wish Stormcaller had been adjusted a bit more, just for the sake of spice, but I'm really enjoying the Rift-oriented attunement.

    Gonna try to bust out a bit more light (you need 230, right?) to unlock the Nightfall; wouldn't mind doing that if anyone is playing this early on PS4, in a bit.

    Nice thing with the PC version is I'll be hanging out in the destiny discord when it hits so anyone who wants to party up can hop in and find people there in a nice common voice chat. We will be sure to add plenty of channels if necessary and all that.

    The milestone unlocks at 230, but it's not really a 230 Activity.

    So, I'm lagging quite a bit behind you over-achievers; my main focus right now is on an athletic event this weekend so vidya is relegated to spare time and sacrificing sleep is not an option. Having said that, I hit level 7/73 last night in the EDZ. Ended the evening with a common (green) pulse rifle in my kinetic slot and the game got 250% more fun for me. I have really REALLY bad aim, so I always "feather" the trigger in FPS. Pulse rifles are perfect for that style, so it's a perfect fit for me.

    Probably not going to play tonight, but after my race tomorrow the gloves come off!

    So, all of YouTube is full of videos about how the Destiny player base is revolting against Bungie, and that there's a huge uproar and boycott... over shaders being consumable.

    So, uh, thanks for not spending thousands of posts freaking out about dumb shit like that here.

    Ah, it stinks, it sucks, it's anthropologically unjust

    Beat the campaign at 20 LL 217. Moving on the Strikes and whatnot now. I hope they get the clan stuff running soon.

    @GMaster7 - What are we using for primary communication with the Clan right now? Discord? Is there a PSN Chatroom? The Guild chat on the app seems very quiet and not very active. I was trying to find some strike buddies last night and outside of individually PMs there wasn't a great option.

    I encourage everyone to use the clan page/app (and specifically our LFG chat rooms) to find fireteam members for activities - I think the early days have been a little wonky on the communication front because (a) clan features weren't active, so there wasn't really a reason to hit up the clan page; and (b) everyone was working through the story, so people were at different spots and/or wanted to run solo through that stuff for the first time. Now that people are through (or just about through) the campaign and we'll all be more or less in the "endgame climb," I think there will be more of an incentive to group up.

    The traditional best way to find people for activities was to hop between PS Parties and just ask around - "Anyone wanna Crucible? Anyone wanna chain strikes?" - and that's obviously still workable, but I'm hoping that people will pay more attention to the LFG chats and find that space to be useful.

    We don't have a platform-specific Discord or PSN Chat (other than the Community, which isn't good for facilitating this). I do agree that no one should have to play solo if they don't want to.

    Last night, I grouped up with a couple of people for Crucible and otherwise was playing solo just to focus on knocking out the campaign and stuff. Once I'm in the endgame grind, I am going to be looking to group constantly.
