    I got to the tomb quests and honestly had most of them done/nearly completed but I cannot find chests to save my life. Even with a map circling the general area.

    Still mostly enjoying the gameplay

    But

    Ash Titans are probably the least fun thing in the entire game, top to bottom what a miserable fucking experience

    Titans in general are the worst fights. Like the 3 strong hold boss fights they have are way more fun experiences, hell the heart of rage fight is how you can make a titan a more fun boss to fight. I hope that's one criticism they listen to and don't give us more titan events/fights. They are just garbage bullet sponge annoyances.

    Now have the tyrant mine boss spawn out in the freeplay area? I'd shit my pants.

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

    It doesn't help that the hitboxes on all of their attacks are laggy garbage so there's virtually no indication as to whether you dodged a thing correctly or not.

    On the plus side, Colossus can easily shield through all of their shit but then they have roughly two seconds to attack every once in awhile

    Yeah playing my captain rocky road earlier it was nice to just pull my shield up to soak his bullshit and then open up with ol painless (endless siege, autocannon 600 round magazine I'm literally Jesse Ventura from Predator in a mech suit). It was a lot nicer than on my "anime is real to me" where I end up flipping and running off the god damn endless burning bullshit.

    Though I will say I have died an inordinate more times on the chungus than on flippy ninja. Its mostly because flippy ninja can disengage easier, on chunk I uhh smash into a wall and die its sad really. So exactly like Jesse in Predator...

    What was weird for me was I did a bunch of freeplay early on because I was on the trial on the xbone. Fortress of dawn spoilers...

    So I got used to owen in freeplay giving me objectives and such, and then when I hit 30 I went back to freeplay and it was cool mom as my cypher and I was like "oh right owen's gone".

    So, the story still isn't anything particularly special, but the character work vastly improves as the plot moves along, and they're doing really solid work with the animations. Also I cleaned up the fountain. I'm enjoying this a bit more than I expected, though I expect that when I get to the point where I'm doing like, daily quests, I'm probably going to back off a bit until more story focused stuff gets released

    Huh, just noticed that the way you get blueprints for weapons and gear is to use them and complete challenges

    Also noticed that Inferno Grenades are bugged so that the second challenge never shows up, so you can't currently get the blueprints for blue inferno grenades or better

    Guess I should figure out another grenade to use for awhile

    You also unlock new material types and...condition types? for your javelin by leveling your rep with the various factions. There's also other cosmetic changes that happen to the fort.

    I wouldn't even worry about getting those particular gear blueprints. They are moderately useful to fill power gaps while leveling, but trust me at max level you're rolling in purples.

    You can also craft purples

    Holy crap, Ranger has a component that just increases gun damage by 25% and this seems broken

    Masterwork components are all fucking bonkers. Colossus gets one that just...increases their damage by 40% for 10 seconds after detonating a combo.

  • Options
    MaddocMaddoc I'm Bobbin Threadbare, are you my mother? Registered User regular
    It's not even a masterwork component

    It's just a normal Ranger component

    It's wildly more powerful than anything else I've seen, when you consider just how much of your damage is gonna be guns

    Are other people having issues with jumping into what seem to be broken quickplay missions? I'd say it's a 50/50 chance I get dumped into something that's literally stuck on an objective, either they already did what it asked and they're waiting for it to progress or it doesn't trigger the next mission step? It's putting a damper on my enjoyment of the game, to be sure.

    I've had a couple times where things weren't loading in correctly for me, like enemies we're there that I couldn't see or shoot, had to quit out and rejoin the session real quick and that fixed it.

    Never had it happen where it seems to break for everyone at once though. One thing I've noticed is that sometimes someone will have picked up a thing and they haven't turned it in so it'll seem like something broke.

    That said this game is buggy as shit so I wouldn't be surprised if that happened.

    Yeah, you have a higher chance of getting broken missions with quickplay, because people will leave when things are broken, and people using quickplay get sent in to replace them

    So it's not really quickplay itself that is broken, but they need to figure out some way to detect if a mission is broken and not funnel people into it

    Yep. Mission breaking rate is pretty low from what I can tell. Only had one bug out of the ones I've played from the start. But while broken missions are persisting it's wrecking quickplay.

    The Colossus ability that zaps nearby enemies (which can be used with your shield up) + flamethrower is self-combo central, very satisfying indeed.

    As for treasure chests, the stronghold has a few of those (same with world events) so that's how I mopped up that challenge. Also revives, since people over-extend a little.

    Fortress of Dawn was a really good mission/a turning point on me being hooked on the story.

    I'm following news about the game, but I'm taking a bit of a break until they add more stuff. Mostly because I've largely done what was already there, and I don't really care about chasing better gear just for the sake of it.

    Yeah the only way to advance my Colossus is legendaries, which drop so rarely it's pointless for me to even pursue that avenue.
