    I'd suggest going to the general PA clan in the G&T thread, they're pretty active.

    Gotta keep pushing up that light level, then one day I might be able to do Dreaming City stuff. My big playtime this weekend was spent extracting Worldline Zero from Mars since my SOs weren't around to group up with me for other things. (We all started playing a month or so back so we're working together through the game) Anyone got tips for ways to get yourself up to 550 without too much hassle?

    I went from 15% to 50% doing escalation protocols yesterday, I'm not sure how exactly.
    I think they might be counting parts of a protocol as a public event.

    Probably the the parts where you have to do a regular event on heroic, during the protocol.

    my friends and i attempted it earlier. we got first boss down and pretty sure we have a handle on the second. pretty hard for our group of people who barely know what we're doing but it was entertaining even amidst the failures. i think the only real criticism i have of the destiny raids thus far is that there's almost no room for error. deaths can happen very fast and recovering from them is difficult and sometimes simply not possible.

    You can afford to wait a minute on the annual pass imo. The stuff that it gets you is only really doable if you're past 600.

    Hit Lv50 myself and I'm about to finish Warmind's story. I like the Escalation Protocol event though it kinda irks me that the chest at the end of all seven rounds needs some key to pop open. I'm assuming it becomes available once you finish Warmind's story much like the ability to raise the towers up in the first place?

    Echoing the "don't worry about the pass for now" advice. As for getting your level up, I'm not sure how/if this changed with Black Armory, but powerful rewards have tiers of softcaps. I think this guide is still accurate for the most part: https://imgur.com/Q0UyhvT

    Basically you want to make sure you do the 520 softcap stuff while you're still below 520 to get full value out of it. Then once all those are exhausted for the week you can do nightfalls/dreaming city/etc. stuff without worry. And also turn in your prime engrams because they are set at the power they dropped at and don't scale.

    Also, Gambit is typically very fun, but also way less fun when our team of mostly freshly minted 50s runs into a team of all almost 600 power level people.

    That was harsh.

    The way the key works is that after you've done the Warmind campaign, fragments will drop from heroic adventures/strikes/nightfalls/raids. Turn in 7 fragments to Ana for an encrypted cache key (can only get 1 key per week). I think a nightfall gives the full 7 fragments. Doing waves of EP will turn the the key into a decrypted cache key (Side note, you can see how many waves you need by looking at the encrypted key icon: the triangles fill in as you do waves). You can hold as many decrypted keys as you like, but only one encrypted at a time (and 7 fragments at a time).

    All that said, the chest at the end is just for the EP armor. The weapons drop from the wave 7 boss itself. So unless they make Y1 armor relevant again, the chest at the end is really only for completionists/people going after the Wayfarer title (or people that just want a cool set to wear around the tower: they are really cool sets).

    The IKELOS weapons are the only reason to do EP at this point, especially since Year One armor isn't really all that useful anymore outside of Exotics.

    I believe completing the Wayfarer title requires you to get all the stuff from there, if you want that title.

    Because it doesn't roll with perks like year two does. It can do the same job power-level-wise, but beyond that there are a lot more benefits to wearing year two stuff.

  • Grey GhostGrey Ghost Registered User regular
    Ah, thanks
    I just... I don't pay much attention to perks I guess
    Like, re-rolling or getting duplicates of guns to get different perks, as a selling point, just bounces off me. I equip a thing I like and I kinda deal with what I get

    Is this worth the cores?

    As Dys mentioned, Y1 armor has no perks. Also, Y1 guns have one less perk than Y2 guns, and Y1 guns also can't take mods anymore
    Grey Ghost wrote: »

    It depends on what it is, but probably not, due what I mentioned about Y1 guns being inferior, and also Cores are pretty valuable. Also also, Masterworking doesn't really add a "perk", it just boosts a stat, like Range or Reload

    But if it's something you definitely see yourself using for a long time, go for it. And there are a few Y1 guns that are still solid, like Ikelos SG, Midnight Coup, and Inaugural Address

    I'm not in front of the game right now but I swear that when I checked one of my old guns (Living Memory) it said I could spend 10 cores to Masterwork it and that it would add a random perk, but obviously I could be wrong

    I just haven't found a hand cannon in year 2 I've liked nearly as much as any of my old ones

    There are a few perks that will make a substantive difference to the way a gun works, things like Outlaw and Rampage. You can safely ignore it and have a fine time with the game but it's worth paying at least a little attention to.

    Yeah, spending the 10 cores will masterwork it and boost a random stat, and each weapon-type only has certain stats that can be boosted

    For a hand cannon, it could be Stability, Magazine, Reload, or Handling

    A fully masterworked weapon will also drop little Light orbs on multikills, which is very nice

    So wait. Weekly powerful gear stuff resets every Tuesday, yeah?

    When does the daily powerful gear stuff reset? I did it yesterday and was expecting to do it today but seems like nope?

  • Rock Lobster!Rock Lobster! Registered User regular
    "Daily" is somewhat of a misnomer. They actually reset every 4 days, but there's a new one every day. So if say, the heroic adventure daily popped on a Monday, then by Thursday you'd have all 4 available. And then if you did the adventure on Thursday, you'd be able to do it again Friday. That's just an example since I have no idea which dailies are on which day (4 dailies and 7 days a week, so it's constantly shifting).

    That is.... not super intuitive but thank you for letting me know!

  • OptyOpty Registered User regular
    The daily order is Strike > Gambit > Crucible > Adventure. There was a bug where the Crucible and Adventure resets were the same day, so the next day had no reset, but that might have been fixed by the Black Armory patch.

    Unless you're going to get big into Gambit or Crucible you can honestly just use whatever you want outside of raids and be fine, and even then every raid except Last Wish was balanced around guns with one less perk.
