    Shout out to @Wraith260 about the tip on weapon medals in the last thread.

    I switched to Graviton Lance since I can reliably hit Lethal Cadence (7 pulse rifle final blows) and it’s working like a charm.

    So get this... there is a whole section of Seasonal Triumphs they added for Undying. They mostly have to do with Vex Offensive stuff (and oddly some Moon stuff). Then there are a pair of triumphs related directly to the seasonal grind. The first one, "Season 8: Progress" tracks your Season Rank and has milestone completions at 10, 25, and 50, finally finishing at Season Rank 100. It's a fitting capstone. However, the second one, "Season 8: Power Bonus" tracks your Artifact Power. It has milestone completions at 5 and 10, finishing at Artifact Power 20. Because the amount of XP required to increase your AP increases each time, it takes progressively longer the farther you go. The amount of XP required to hit AP 20 would put you at SR 206. Since this season is 10 weeks, you'd have to average slightly over 20 ranks per week, EVERY WEEK, in order to hit this value. What's even worse than this, though, is that this triumph originally had its milestones at AP 10, 25, and 50 (based on the data from the API, which apparently hasn't been updated to match the in-game values). I assume Bungie saw that requiring someone to earn the equivalent of Season Rank 1271 was a bit excessive and pulled it back. Thankfully neither of these triumphs is required to unlock the Undying Seal/Title.

    nice, glad i could help. if anyone is wondering what Shamus is talking about its in reference to the 'kills/medals' requirement for Randy's Throwing Knife. here's the post for anyone that missed it in the last thread:
    Wraith260 wrote: »
    ok, got my scout rifle kills done. bit of luck in the last few matches has seen me jump to 1102/2100 glory needed and a bit of digging has shown me why my 'kills/medals' progress has been so slow for the most part. as it currently stands, i think i'm on pace to get Randy's Throwing Knife before the season closes out. hopefully.

    for anyone else finding the 'kills/medals' requirement a massive slog, the posts i found on Bungie.net and Reddit suggest that it only counts weapon kill medals*. certainly that tracks with what i was seeing with my own progress only counting my kills and not the various medals i knew i was getting per match. so i decided i'd chase 'Cold Fusion' medals, getting 2 kills with a Fusion Rifle in a single life. 2 of these in a match say my progress jump 400 points on top of the 20-odd kills i got. for anyone who isn't a fan of fusions rifles** just check the weapons tab in the medals section of the Crucible triumph section and it'll show you the requirements for other weapons. chasing those should see progress pick up a bit, with a bit of luck at least.

    *this doesn't quite track with my score jumping the first half of last week. i thought maybe IB medals were contributing but my gains slowed again the back half of the week so i can't say for certain.
    **i'm not personally a fan of them, especially in Crucible, but it seemed like the easiest one to chase to me.

    I've switched from Warlock to Titan as well...definitely just pulling items out of collections to lvl to 900 seems like cheating but whatever.

    I'm now 949 on Titan and 942 on warlock (That's without the +10 from artifact)

    The Titan is so much more fun in PVP, if only for the 1-shot melee. I still use that exotic helm that gives full melee recharge on melee ability kill...sometimes I'll chain 3 together no problem. The helm also includes an awesome added bonus of healing you each time you kill a person.

    The only downside is I look like the titan that joined Daft Punk.

  • DixonDixon Screwed...possibly doomed CanadaRegistered User regular
    One more thing...is that Jotuneer bike gonna be made purchasable with Dust? I saw the post on reddit which said a lot of stuff will be silver only but that bike didn't show on the list.

  • 3clipse3clipse I will build a labyrinth to house the cheese Registered User regular
    The list is often wrong, for example it had the Lunar shell on the "silver only" list but that's available for dust this week.

    I recently found a wonderful spot for getting cosmology kills for the graviton lance catalyst. There's a lost sector on Tangled Shore called Kingship Dock. You can get in and out really fast, but there's several large packs of scorn that spawn in that you can blow up.

    Infamy resets are tied to various rewards, such as a curated Trust and Bad Omens, as well as the Gambit ghost shell. Reseting Infamy thrice in one season awards an Emblem.

    I found an exotic that grants two charges to knife toss for the Gunslinger and promptly tried middle tree. After modding some equipment to grant grenade energy on melee kills and increased super energy on melee kills I am having some fun just hurling a ludicrous number of knives into waves of enemies. No idea if it’s good in the long run, but eh!

    Also got the 300 headshots to fully unlock the Crimson catalyst. I’ll have to try that out in crucible sometime. Found it was easy to farm against Scorn and Taken, so ran around the Dreaming City for awhile to grind that out.

    Been dragging randos through the Heroic Nightfall the Ordeal kicking and screaming, using the Nightstalker top tree to revive them after their inevitable ogre related deaths. Unfortunately been having poor luck even with Platinum champion kills. 940 item level, so maybe I can do the next level with a team of friends or something.

    One per destination for the Combo Detector perk that highlights both caches and resources on a given planet. Having one for each means it's always on, provided you swap to the right ghost shell.

    Do you see, I answer questions before they're asked.

    Though also don't underestimate the glimmer hordes of longtime players. I think I have like 40k saved up because there wasn't much to spend it on.

    Jesus christ I just saw a thread on reddit saying you can set your steam browser to open to DIM in the overlay and I think this might change my whole life.

    EDIT: Currently I just use a browser on my second PC, so I've always had a ready solution to using DIM while playing (in fact, I don't know I ever really would have stuck around so long if I couldn't; and whenever I play on PS4 it will still be necessary); but this is so much easier.

    Alternately they should just put something like DIM in fucking game.

    EDIT2: 40k is a glimmer "horde"? Pre-Shadowkeep I was constantly hitting up Spider to be sure I wasn't "wasting" glimmer as I was regularly at the cap. Now, if I had some way of tracking it, I probably earn/spend a couple hundred thousand glimmer a day. I usually hover pretty low, but that's because I never want to be totally broke, so I rarely go under 30k, but I'm constantly upgrading/infusing/buying upgrades etc. This will change as the season goes on and I'm not needing to upgrade things anymore and my loadouts become more static.

    Glimmer is weird now though, and I don't know for certain how much a difference a ghost with glimmer scavenger makes; but I just recently switched to all Lunar's so it won't matter much. Then again I have about 70+ of the consumables that I literally can't use faster than I earn.

    It doesn't. I reset 3 times during IB last week and it was 2 powerfuls each time.

    Well, they were 950's at least, I can't be 100% sure they were powerfuls as I've been at 950 on my characters since the first day of week two. But I'd imagine at least one or two would have been 949 or something had they not been powerfuls.

    Having said that I certainly wouldn't use valor resets as a go-to for increasing your power unless you're already doing a lot of crucible for some reason, or if it's a 3x weekend.

    So the seasonal title has a bunch of triumphs that are going away at the end of the season. Also, it has a collection badge that includes the ritual weapons and no indication that it’s going to expire. Can I do the triumphs and skip on doing the ritual weapons, but still get the title 6 months from now when I finally get them after the season is long over?

    Over the course of the Season, the situation will be resolved and some of the related activities will go away as Season 9’s conflict arrives.

    This will also be true of the Title associated with Season 8. Both the Triumphs and Badge for the new title will ask players to be participate during the Season of the Undying. Once the conflict has been resolved players will no longer be able to earn the season’s title, Undying.

    You get stuff for resetting and then you get to get more things for every rank you climb up the ladder again.

    There is literally no reason to not reset as soon as possible outside of a few specific things where some quest needs Legend to finish and you really don't wanna risk it.

    The ritual weapons are the hardest part of it really. The entire Collection badge really.

    The only other thing that takes much time is a tediously large amount of kills with specific weapons in the Vex Offensive.
