    QUESTIONS!

    I haven't been able to track any of this down maybe someone knows -

    Does Severance Enclosure (Titan Exotic chest) trigger off the Solar 3.0 ranged melee mini-hammer, assuming you get a kill (which is pretty likely)?

    Same question for the Explosive Wellmaker mod? I've tried testing this one and it seems like it doesn't trigger (which seems like a waste) but I'm not very observant and maybe I'm just missing it?

    I'm told that Sunshot doesn't synergize with Solar 3.0 which is a shame since it seems like that would have been a spicy matchup and is probably the only hand cannon I can reliably use.

    I've got a couple of weapons with the new Incandescent perk and that seems pretty amazing as well, but again, maybe I'm missing something?

    They did add the new Scorch mechanic to Prometheus Lens and Skyburner's Oath. The latter's pretty handy for half the enemies at the Leviathan, especially since it doesn't need a Barrier mod to go through Phalanx shields.

    Last time I tested it did not, which yes, does seem like an oversight because the word 'explosion' is used twice in the exotic perk description.

    Explosive Wellmaker is weird as hell, a lot of things that look like explosions and sound like explosions and are sometimes called explosions by the game don't trigger it.

    That ritual rocket launcher seems to, I was using that some this weekend and saw more than a few well pop up. Sunshot and Polaris Lance need to be adjusted to work with Solar 3.0.

    For me it has been reliable on grenades, grenade launchers, and rocket launchers.

    Which is certainly what the design intent was for.

    Does Sunshot trigger it?

  • DysDys how am I even using this gun Registered User regular
    You sure? Doesn't the post-kill explosion trigger it?

    Like, my Explosive Rounds/Firefly Fatebringer doesn't make wells off of the explosive rounds. But if the Firefly effect catches a couple dudes, that absolutely will.

    Man these legendary witch Queen missions aren't no joke. Obviously I'm way out of practice without all the omega guns everyone else has. But god damn just did the pyramid mission and there was a lot of lets say less than brave moments

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

    This took me three attempts. First on titan, I got booped off the edge at the first boss near immediately. On my second attempt, this time as a knifey hunter, I made it all the way to the final boss, took it down to 20% health, but got architected. Third time's the charm.

    I need to find an exotic weapon to pair with my WotW arcstrider. Titan got Monte carlo and lots of recharge refunds, but don't need that with WotW with dodging to refresh melee, and melee refreshes dodge.

    If only there were an exotic brass knuckles weapon.

    Nice! Definitely the finicky-ness of the dungeon and this season in general has me hesitant to try. I definitely feel like I've been Architected a lot recently just from barely touching stuff. And I've died a few times using those bells when I'm totally in the circle. If I got to the end and died to some BS I would be quite sore

    The Legendary Witch Queen campaign is basically the perfect difficulty imo

    I wish more activities had that challenge, and upped the rewards in response. Less grinding easy mindless stuff a hundred times, more interacting with the game with the cools guns, abilities, and enemies in meaningful ways a few times

    Yeah that's on my wishlist. Currently I have the boots that drop grenades when you dodge.

    My question was more about weapons, since there doesn't seem to be an immediately obvious exotic that reinforces the Dark Souls playstyle of dodge smack dodge smack lol. If only there was an exotic shotgun with One-Two Punch!

    If you are doing Liar's Handshake + Top-Tree-Arc, weapons are superfluous. Why pull a trigger when the melee button is right there?

    Don't you talk about my child like that.

    Trinity ghoul is just all around useful until you get to the fucking painful level of content.

    I also do not grant your premise about "too many dudes to punch". That sounds like Warlock talk.

    It is just sometimes you can not reach the dudes, who are very punchable, so you put some of your punch onto a stick and then punch the stick at them with some string.

    Awesome. Was that your loadout for the whole encounter? I’m planning to try and knock it out on the weekend but I’m trying to build and strategise now cause I feel this is easily the hardest dungeon we’ve had.

    I was leaning towards sixth coyote but assassins cowl didn’t even occur to me

    this dungeon needed a couple of months in the oven.

    i am trying to flawless solo it and nearly every death i get is so frustrating because it's all boops into walls or phalanx shield oneshots or getting stuck between first boss and the wall so physics shoots me at 900 miles an hour into the wall and i instantly die. all while way too short timers are ticking down that also make you run all across the world to do their mechanic.

    i died a shitload in prophecy but it was never frustrating because i felt like i earned every death. this dungeon, that is not the case at all.

  • Local H JayLocal H Jay Registered User regular
    Yeah it's actually a very doable boss for solo but the way the encounters work is just a recipe for disaster.
    I've died while simply dunking the symbols, I've died because it randomly decided to spawn me right next to the Colossus, I've died because it refused to spawn spec lmao

    I really like Syncopation/Lorentz/Reed's but I think for solo I might sub in Le Monarch just so I'm not beholden to spec to clear the flame Bellkeepers or whatever. I'm not even sure I'll bother but I do want the sword...

    I was blade barrage for encounters 1 & 3, 6-shot golden gun for encounter 2. For encounter 2, I wasn't using anti-barrier weapons so golden gun would make quick work of all the shielded cabal on a given side. Blade barrage was easy damage for the boss fights, and I also had it as a panic option for encounter 3 if things went poorly in the nightmare realm and I needed to kill the bellkeepers ASAP.

    For subclass setup, it was healing grenade, gambler's dodge, knife trick. Aspects and fragments were set up primarily so that knife kills would cause radiance and refund the knife.

    Weapons were SMG/auto/scout depending on the situation, cartesian coordinate, and lament. The throwing knives were usually enough to kill most red health enemies outright. For beefier enemies like the bellkeepers, I would weaken them cartesian coordinate and finish them off with the throwing knife or a finisher to proc assassin's cowl.

    This season's classy restoration mod is ridiculously powerful so use that if you've unlocked it. But you could also go for a melee wellmaker + well of life combo in another season.

    They gave everyone wormhusk, but hunters can abuse it the hardest.

    Also it’s better than wormhusk and totally fuckin busted.

    Speaking of armor. Are we due for new Iron Banner armor with the vendor refresh? Thematically the timing is perfect. Iron warbeast set would be amazing.

    Ohhhh. Bungie has a legendary collection on sale for 30. That’s pretty tempting since forsaken was ps4 and shadow keep and beyond light we’re gamepass

    I can finally get dmt. Which with the new airborne accuracy , flying around as a Titan with peacekeepers hipfire everything could be fun.

    The only problem is I won’t have a excuse not to run last withwith @Zombie Gandhi

    I will give credit for these Witch queen missions, though they've been hard on legendary the variety of environment and objective has made them definitely different from each other. Probably my least favorite so far was the europa one, all those god damn cabal were a pain.

    So how does one see what the daily challenge for IB is?

    Rift is fun but it reminds me of breakthrough in a way.

    Seems like at a remotely even match super use is way too swingy

    Also the round based format vs free flowing is awkward. It slows things down too much. It does feel more competitive that way but I dunno

    It all feels very 6 man breakthrough to me which was a pretty bad mode. Not saying it’s bad. Breakthrough suffered because the whole two capture system was flawed. Rift had a similar two capture in you need the spark then push the point. But it feels better than breakthrough. Seems like a fun change of pace mode but I doubt I’d play it outside if IB
