    So the beasts you have to kill must be predators (wyvern, anisaur, wolfen, brutes). Skorpions do not count.

    I also had a world event on GM1 where you hve to save Arcanists from Brutes. I was using one of my lesser equipped suits and had real trouble with those brutes, that were always attacking in 4. As soon as I whittled one or two away, a bit layer a 3rd and a 4th would arrive, resulting in an impasse for me (with diminishing ammo); so I had to damage 4 GM1 brutes to not-death, only to ultimate them all together.

    And just when Idid it a second player arrived, to take credit for the chest :bigfrown:

    Technically, skorpions are insects.

    ... just thought I'd share. And a shout out to the other PS4 players who got to 9 and 10 as well!

    I took a night to play through the new AC: Odyssey DLC chapter so I think I only got to 9 within spitting distance of 10 this week. My friends, I have failed you.

    Maybe it's a coincidence. Maybe. All I'm saying is that I bought the awesome Make it Rain emote, and then immediately found my first Legendary.

    They could easily bring back the Monitor. He became one with the Anthem. Not so sure stepping on him with Strider is enough

    There's also Doctor Harken, who Yarrow said was "never seen before or after that day" when they invaded Freemark and he tried to use the cenotaph

    I guess my main gripe with the setting is that none of the enemy factions are really all that interesting, beyond the lore stuff about the Scar.

    The Hive/Taken in Destiny are memorable as heck in comparison.

    Even meeting the Vexx for the first time felt eerie AF. By comparison, I know nothing about the enemies in Anthem. I only just, at 50 hours in, learned the Scar are insects...

    I think so, assuming it works

    The best way to increase melee damage is gear score, though. Especially after the latest patch when they buffed gear power levels

    I need to find the post that BioWare did to explain inscriptions, but basically each rarity has four pools of inscriptions they pull from. Legendary's secondary inscription pools are the same as MW's primary inscription pools (which has +damage in it. But Legendaries have their own primary pool that also has +damage in it.

    Because you loaded into a bugged tyrant mine, which is another known bug. You'll need someone on your friend's list to group up with you and run it with you again successfully, after which it will be there again for you.

    With the quick play strongholds if you luck out and get a non bugged tyrant mines, that fixes it too.

    Ok so a glitch of course, while I was reading this I got stuck behind a wall in a stronghold, like when it blocks off an area and you get stuck behind. It's the one time you want aggressive tethering to teleport you but of course it won't do that

    It takes a lot for me to complain about a game being buggy, but dear god Anthem meets that standard

    Also this is based on an extremely small sample size but does it feel like the first run of the day has a slightly higher drop rate to anyone else? Again, extremely small sample size but I'm wondering if there isn't some kind of first expedition modifier.

    So i figured i’d start testing this. freeplay is usually my first expedition of the day but did a stronghold instead today. and didn’t get a single masterwork other than the guaranteed drop. so that theory isn’t looking too hot.

    on the plus side the drops in freeplay appear to have gotten better and mw embers have also started dropping again.

    Hmmm, I seem to have either a map bug or a conversation bug. Twice now I've seen a convo icon for Dax on the map and gone to her apartment only to find no conversation available. And then when I pull up the map the icon is gone. This time I played around a bit and the icon seems to disappear essentially once I move to the second floor. Back up a bit towards the first floor and it returns. Back and forth.

    For reference, I'm at the point in Dax's story where
    I talked to her in the bar when she was upset about Vule and her Aunt spending time together.

    Oh also a couple of times I've seen convo icons on the map move a bit, by which I mean both that they start to stray from their target location as I walk around, and that they look like they're about to vibrate into another dimension.

    Must be a Shaper relic in here somewhere.
