    Finally finished the Swift Destruction challenge for the Acquisition encounter on Master. It took three total nights out of my week (first with a PA team on Tuesday, and then another two nights with LFG pugs), but at this point, I feel like I could do it in my sleep. The "challenge" is just waiting for LFGs to not drop the ball, lol. Having said that, I'm more than willing to help others knock it out this week if they still need it.

    I finally hit Legend rank a third time and unlocked the Unbroken title!

    GXFZBhRh.jpg

    My first Legend run was so stressful and exhausting that I hadn't even attempted it a second time for over two years. Last season was nice and long so I gave it another go, then a third and final time this season.

    As a barricade-dropping, axion-tossing void titan, I wanted to get it done ASAP before next week's update hits my build with a nerf.

    I had heard a bunch of stuff about Omnioculus so I decided I should get it today. Luckily it was also chest armor day today, something I hadn't realized needed to be the case.

    Then I had to deal with how ugly it is, which I did by building an entire horrifying look around it.

    lol I just came here to complain about this exact build in comp

    Went up against three titans one using the wall you can shoot through in a very long range map. Axion bolts behind Titan walls is just crazy frustrating to deal with!

    We did the Master challenge last night. Biggest problem was getting our 1572 member to not die, but he got it going very quickly.

    We all weren't Stasis Warlocks, but I tell ya, the more Stasis Warlocks there are, the easier it gets.

    Adepts were almost all trash, so yay.

    I can't say it was fun, though, but we got it after an hour and some change of being stupid.

    I almost got to flawless solo, but wiped out on game six. This after losing my mercy back on game two. Still, 5/7 wins solo for the first time I've stepped back into trials this season ain't bad.

    I definitely find Control point trials more fun for me - it's easier to interact and read the enemy team when there's a centralizing objective, instead of playing the did I spot them first game (I'm very bad at this game!)

    Got some fanatic top tree arc storm grenade kills too... And I don't think I ever got to cast my super once. Welp!

    So Gunsmith has a Killing Wind Frenzy Funnelweb with almost maxed handling before you even touch the handling masterwork.

    Played around with it a bit.

    Just dumb.

    it's legit the worst, to the point where i don't know what they were thinking at all. def has the feel of we designed this for playlist difficulty and whatever will be will be.

    at the very least i would like the boss to have like half as much hp, the part where you lock him into his jumping animation forever and plink him with primaries until the add waves come up again is just insanely long and drags out the hard part a ton for no reason.

    New gambit doesn't work when every team has Gjally.

    EDIT: Meaning, the stay near the bank to drain motes as an invader.

    The only successful bank drains I've seen so far are when Titans invade and drop their Bubbles on the deposit.

  • BizazedoBizazedo Registered User regular
    I haven't seen anyone do it. I went into Gambit to finish off the seasonals and like Raynaga said, everyone was rocking Gjally so I couldn't imagine making it to the bank anyways.

    Given the reduced invasions, anyways, it seems like this Lab is a bust.

    We were bantering on discord and one idea that came up was having the Invader get a fixed load out - something like being locked to the VoG Shield, or similar. YOu'd probably have to do more tweaks than just that (like giving them DR so that they dont just get lolrocketed), but a fixed loadout would go a looooong way to solving a chunk of the balance issues with invaders.

    Otoh, it introduces a bunch of new problems (including really stepping on the potential fantasty of being an invader and rocking your personal loadout)

    My thing is just disable all heavy from both sides during an invade. Sniping atleast requires the smallest bit of skill, you still have LFR like Arby or Lorentz, just no instantly getting Gjally rocketed in the face as you spawn in

    Finally got to murder people with magic death bullets in PVP with Collective Obligation.


    Yeah, that's not a PVP perk, and only comes up occasionally, but I like to think my victims felt run over by a truck with instant triple debuffs.

    The gun itself is fairly solid, but maybe not worth you exotic in PVP.

    There’s not many better feelings then when the enemy team switches to your loadout mid match because you’ve been stomping them in 3s

    Probably the Opposite feeling if that switch works and they dominate you. But I’ve literally never seen that happen yet.

    I always think that, much like chasing the meta is a trap. Like things do become meta because they're strong, but if you can't execute on those strengths then what the hell is the point?

    I won a glory round last guardian standing with the other team still having life advantage. Bow/hc swap is high risk high reward but boy can it pop off. Obviously it requires them being really stupid to pull off but still felt amazing.

    Hit my first 5 streak of the season and decided to go to bed stoked instead of keeping the heater running.

    Crucible's the only one that doesn't feel like a chore, which leads to more games being played without it hurting.

    At least for me, but I like PvP. I imagine, for some, Crucible is worse than Gambit.

    I don't see how, but, hey, opinions & all.

    Bountiful Wells on Ada-1 today.

    e: Okay so, interesting info that isn't really conveyed in its description or on light.gg. I guess Bountiful Wells also adds +1 wells created to your well-creating abilities, so that's nice. But unfortunately while mods 'stack,' each additional stack of your well generating mods only spawns +1 well per stack. So my heehoo brain plan of 4x Overcharge Wellmaker would not generate 8 arc wells, it only generates 6.

    Honestly even just running bountiful wells, grenade wells and gun wells can give you a very steady stream of them and leaves two slots open for stuff like +damage or similar

    Sure, there’s strats, we used many of them. Particularly cheesing the boss AI to get stuck in a loop of jumping back and forth without attacking. I’m fairly certain Bungie did not intend this, but it’s basically unbearable without it.

    Also I’m fairly certain in the boss room, the barrier champs that spawn in the top outer circle have a few places they can potentially spawn, so it’s hard to prepare, plus the boss starts running around firing off his bullshit blasts. Half the time he’s looking at one player but shoots in an entirely different direction. If one player goes down, good luck getting a res off while any enemy can essentially one-shot you.

    This strike should not return as a GM unless it’s adjusted somehow.

    You mean for the two weapons you need to get the quest to show up? If so, I think they buffed the weapon drop rate, but you’re still at the mercy of it being deep sight or not

    No I think they mean the patterns for the Exotic glaives so they can craft (shape) the other Exotic glaives.
