    What's the best way to farm a Skullfort? I'd really like to start using it in Gambit matches. I have close to 1500 legendary shards from back when I played before, is there any way I can use those to get items?

    Buy the fated engram from Xur on your Titan and hope he sells it again.

    I just checked, and he is selling it again.

    Silly Bungie.

    I don't remember that. They nerfed shoulder charge and grenade recharge back in Y1 but I don't remember much beyond that for striker.

    The duration feels good in PvP now imo. Bottom-Striker has always been pretty solid with the knee-slams and now it's even better. In PvE it might be a bit out of hand.

    That wasn't a nerf, that was a bug fix because you could glitch the super with a really specific series of moves and it was super finicky to boot. You had to like shoulder charge and then cancel the charge half-way with a slam and do that continuously to stay at just above 0% super energy.

    You could activate an extra slam out of your final shoulder charge for some extra damage. I did that all the time on top-tree striker and it wasn't finicky at all.

    It wasn't a bug. It was a "we don't want players doing this" change, like when they removed the mobility utility from shoulder charge.

    No, it was a bug. You can find no end of videos about it from around September/October 2017 and it was a way to infinitely chain charge->slam->charge->slam->etc to keep your super at 0% charge. It was hard but if you could keep the pattern going the super never ended. That's clearly a bug.

    It works how you'd expect it to work. The bonus slam adds super energy. Then you can slam again. So Bungie removed the bonus slam.

    At no point did that bonus slam ever seem like a "bug" instead of a feature, and Bungie wouldn't have touched it if not for how it interacted with bottom-tree striker.

    EDIT: It was also part of the same patch where Bungie decided they didn't like players using shoulder charge for mobility (3+ years later) and nerfed its "unintended" movement utility.

    The Lore implications of the Last Word quest were... interesting?
    I like that we're moving to the "hybrid of Light and Dark as way to stop eternal conflict," but I also hate the trope that clearly our Guardian is different and special, and no other Guardian ever had the same journey as us.

    That said, the fact that Shin Malphur handed off Last Word to the Guardian in a lore tab rather than a cutscene just so they didn't need to make and develop a new character is a pretty fucking lame missed opportunity.

    Nah, you could just do it with normal slams. Shoulder charging before a slam was just to close gaps.

    You may have misunderstood some stuff:
    The actual Lore Tab for TLW is Jaren Ward's letter to Shin, the day he left to duel Dredgen and lost.

    The lore book reveals that TLW is actually something any guardian can manifest, akin to a universal Golden Gun.

    I guess that's a means to avoid introducing Shin proper, but I reckon he may still pop up in one of the upcoming Seasons, as it's clear Malfeasance -> TLW -> Thorn -> ??? is a prominent sub-story to the overarching narrative for the year.

    I'm pretty ok with them leaving major characters as text at this point; I didn't think Saint 14 would end up in a better place narratively than Osiris considering what happens to them both, but here we are.

    I had read the Lore tab on TLW right, but yeah I misread the first paragraph of that last entry, your points are solid. Thanks for clarifying.

    I would be surprised if they don't introduce him. Just by
    Having ressurrected Yor kill him to make you hunt Yor, only it'll be less satisfying in text or if it happened like immediately after introducing the character.

    Hey so, *is* there something I should be doing with these 1500 legendary shards? Like is there something worthwhile that I should be dumping them into? I saw someone post something on Reddit about buying certain items from the Spider and selling or converting them into another vendor to fish for god roll legendaries and stuff but it was a little hard to follow.

    - Giving them to Spider for Enhancement Cores is a great option, but be aware that the price doubles each core that day. I usually only buy 2 or 3 a day
    - Giving them to Spider for planet materials is good too if you need some
    - Ada has Mod Components you can get for Shards + Weapon Parts, you can then use the Mod Components at Banshee/Gunsmith for Mods, or Ada + Black Armory things for specialer mods

    Not really. When you start playing the game, you'll barely scrape by on the meager amount of legendary shards you can cobble together. But eventually you'll hit a tipping point and end up with more than you can ever use.

    I recommend buying a stack of boons from Zavala if you play strikes. Buy exotics from Xur if you need them.

    I would not say I’m starved for shards, but I’m not playing enough to be overflowing. I’ve seen a significant dip in my bank since I started filling out my Y1 exotics from Xur.

    Not really. There's a few places you can dump them but you have to be really aggressive about it for them not to start to pile up.

    I have almost 15,000 shards.

    You can spend them on planetary materials from Spider and then turn those planetary materials in for vendor rank ups on the respective planet. Each rank up package has a chance to contain an exotic (only Y1 stuff) but it's going to be very slow going and not exactly the best method.
    The bright side is that dismantling all the gear you get from this will basically refresh your lego shards and give you cores since you'll get a lot of masterwork gear.
    Mercury and Mars planetary mats are the best because the shaders from there dismantle into more lego shards so you recoup even more of your spent shards.

    It's always possible they might have nerfed this I guess? I honestly don't know because I haven't played the game since before Black Armoury dropped.

    I want to like the last word but it's going to take some getting used to. I got what felt like some dicey hit registration when I was hip firing but I don't know whether it was me or the gun.

    Coolguy has a review of Last Word. Actual review begins at 2:22. Tips to help people get used to the gun start at around 7:20, skipping to this also gives you the benefit of skipping the blatant lies Coolguy tells about Last Word being a skill weapon when we all know it's actually easy mode.
    His stuff at the end about combating the recoil might be helpful, especially the tips on strafing and how you need to break the side to side strafing habit you would usually have from other Destiny guns since on Last Word it just creates confusing visual recoil.

    Just to clarify, the dude that devised this strategy (and tested it ridiculously--like, 20,000 shards worth of ridiculous) came to the conclusion that Mercury (Simulation Seeds) gives the best returns but Mars (Seraphite) gives the worst.

    You'll see the occasional post on r/dtg just noting that Seeds are selling for shards on a particular day for that reason.

    Wait till Spider is selling simulation seeds for shards. Then go buy 1000 shards worth of sim seeds. Then go to see Brother Vance on Mercury, and feed him sim seeds. Everything he gives you dismantles into shards including shaders. Some of it turns into Cores because he hands out masterwork weapons too. Most of it turns into weapon parts. By the time you're done, you'll be down just a few shards, it's the best currency turn around in game right now.

    He sometimes hands out exotics, old ones too.

    This was what I did initially when I moved to PC.

    So tether should have an invulnerability itself until at least the delay of the suppression

    Tether a guy who then uses blade barrage shouldn’t destroy the tether leaving the guy free to run off that’s silly

    If you’re going to let him cast his ultimate still at least let the tether survive it

    And also no ult should be able to panic ult a tether. If you try it should suck you out of your animation and waste your ult

    Just silly it’s so delayed they can see you cast It, then cast back at you and win
