    I hate that there's bounties on Mercury to kill Cyclops but there's no guaranteed way to spawn them.

    Mercury planetary bounties should be done only on the basis of how time consuming they are. More so than any other planet.

    So I got the assault rifle from the halloween event for getting all the masks, and it's power 950. Does this mean anything? Or is it just my light level that matters? I'm still not even sure what it does or how it works since everything seems to be the same level now, it feels kinda arbitrary.

    950 is the highest power short of pinnacle gear. By getting it, all your followup drops will start scaling towards 950 as well. This is a very good thing, make sure to hang on to it.

    Ok but... why. The gun itself doesn't seem any better than the other things i've been using around power ~900. Enemies don't die faster or anything. What benefit is there in this besides chasing higher number values?

    Different activities have enemies with higher numbers in them. If you don't have a high enough number, those enemies will swat you like a bug. There's a 980 Nightfall for example and a 980 Nightmare Hunt.

    Well, it's a free masterwork if nothing else. So you get orbs from multikills with it. You don't have to use it if you don't like the way it feels, but if you want to increase your number all you have to do is keep it in your inventory, since it bases the LL of drops on the maximum LL you could equip, not what you currently have equipped. Other than that, it's just one of a billion guns in the game like any other.

    Basically having a higher light level than something will give you damage resistance/increased damage (Up to a point) and being lower light level than something will cause you to take more damage and do less damage to it until it becomes totally immune to your damage, I think it's around 50 power each way.

  • AistanAistan Tiny Bat Registered User regular
    Hmm ok. I guess because most everything is 750 and can still be a challenge in certain circumstances I figured it didn't do much of anything. I have no interest in nightfalls or raids so haven't seen any higher level stuff yet.

    another hot tip for haunted forest wave 9: you sort of want to leapfrog people in sections of the forest (this assumes you/someone else feels confident that they can solo a section. Obviously daemons will slow this strat down but like, have one person mop up the first section of adds on their own quickly and have the other two immediately crack the gate and start on the next section.

    Also: the mask mod that increases your damage resistance mid-air and just generally increases damage done to rank and files is probably the best one (in my opinion). If you focus the boss they typically die in under 15 seconds so the bulk of your time is GETTING to each boss phase, you wanna minimize that as quickly as possible. We did a random run yesterday to get to tier 9 cause people hadn't gotten the pinnacle for the week left and got to wave 9 with like 1:52 to spare or something. once you're IN wave 9 the timer doesn't matter as long as you don't wipe

    If you never intend on doing endgame content, then no, there isn't really any reason to get your power level up.

    The 920 nightfall has matchmaking and the hardest thing about it is that you gotta bring weapons for dealing with the champion enemies.

    I still don't understand how the Blight public event works.

    EDIT: I just looked it up. Okay

    Pac Man's character is difficult to explain even to the Japanese -- he is an innocent character. He hasn't been educated to discern between good and evil. He acts more like a small child than a grown-up person. Think of him as a child learning in the course of his daily activities. If someone tells him guns are evil, he would be the type to rush out and eat guns. But he would most probably eat any gun, even the pistols of policemen who need them.

    Fighting lion is pretty great. Even better when I realized I could remote detonate the shots.

    Up until about a month ago, I thought I had to get direct hits with it, and actually got pretty decent with the arcing shots. Rereading the text, it blew my mind.

    it's what happens when something dies from serious elemental damage

    Yeah I'm pretty much wearing the mask for everything, so I'll just continue doing shit in addition to the occasional spoopy forest.

    I don't know if I'm ever gonna finish this exotic weapon quest that asks me to stop an invader in gambit before they can kill anyone.

    Also just lost all my fucking progress on the quest where I need to bank motes and not lose motes.

    if you have eriana's vow, it might give you a better shot. I don't have that quest step yet but i've been actually testing myself to see if I can do it, and it's basically an invader killer, from a pretty long range.

    That quest step is a lie. It’s kill an invader within 10 seconds of them invading before they can kill anyone. I know from experience. Truth is the easiest way to do it, though, for sure

    I'm already trying to have golden gun or power ammo ready for an invader, but I usually don't even see the invader before they've killed someone.

    a big part of effectively getting this medal is knowing how the spawns work in gambit

    there's three areas to every gambit map and the game is going to try, whenever possible, to put the invader an area that has nobody on your team. Watch for when they have an invasion portal, look at where your team is, and go to a different area (preferably a good vantage one). Invader will spawn in the third area that doesn't have anyone in it, pivot your aim, pop him
