    Revoker makes sense because the ammo economy is changing (icebreaker 2.0 and all), NF might see some play because it still slaps, I'm not convinced we'll see any other weapons from days gone by.

    Revoker is absolutely going to make a comeback for exactly that reason.

    Yeah, okay, they really need to implement loadouts. I love the buildcraft aspect of the game but juggling my inventory ain't fun.

    DIM has them. So do some other 3rd party apps I think.

    Is that secure to use?

    DIM is very secure to use as far as i know, as are most third party aps - Bungie's been very good about their API stuff and what can be acessedi s pretty strictly locked down. For instance, apps cannot do anything that would influnce your glimmer or the ilk negatively (I think DIM has a function to dismantle stuff, but you have to actively work to use it).

    I've certainly never heard of any BadStuffTm happening with DIM, Light.gg, Braytech.org or the ilk.

    Yea, you have to validate DIM through Bungie. If that fails you're kind of screwed regardless. Pretty sure there aren't DIM servers so much as a program you run that interfaces with the Bungie API.

    Also don't think you can do anything that permanently changes anything through the API. This was part of the reason why mod changes no longer cost glimmer, so that they could let the API handle loadouts.

    Honestly even if dim wasn’t secure I’d still use it.

    It’s too hard to interface with the vault or loadouts or basically anything involving inventory in destiny without it

    If you haven't been using something like DIM yet you've basically been playing a shittier version of the game honestly. Bungie imo knowingly makes a robust API and figures 3rd party apps like DIM will handle the rest. Not using it at least for inventory is just making your life harder.

    I'd hope/assume that as long as you are using some kind of two-factor authentication on the platforms you play Destiny on, security shouldn't really be an issue.

    Will the seasonal umbral focusing such around next season? Took a break from destiny and would like to unlock some of these patterns, but you apparently need five of the damn things.

    It won't vanish until the next expansion, so you've got plenty of time. They can also randomly drop from the seasonal stuff as red border too

    I was all hyped to grind some NF to get vanguard ranks and hopefully ratking catalyst and finish this heir apparent catalyst

    But since shadow keep was on gamepass I never bought it. So no NF for me. Sad times. They should probably just let that stuff be free if it’s the NF. Like a free trial to the content you have no desire to play otherwise

    I think they do that the other way around. You can run those strikes in the Vanguard playlist but if you wanna do the NF you gotta pay.

    Yes, if I recall I think dim is the OG in terms of 3rd party apps.

    I beat up the enemy team so hard they got mercied, 2 kills before i woulda got my first ever We Ran medal =(

    Relatedly, I picked up this beauty today:
    ?imw=5000&imh=5000&ima=fit&impolicy=Letterbox&imcolor=%23000000&letterbox=false

    And by today i mean as of this posting i have had it less than 5 hours and already racked up that many kills on it. It's a fucking MONSTER and i adore it. Combining it with NttE and @Arteen Alpha Lupi Void Titan build and i've been on a fucking tear in crucible.

    Also getting my arse kicked in Glory because i am not yet stronk enough to carry teammates who run out and die solo ;.;

    I have now murdered 100 people with my shiny shiny Plug One.1

    This thing is so hilariously stupid, and pairs really well with NttE. Just mid-range death everywhere, it's brutal. The range i can pick people off with using Plug One is honestly ridiculous

    Yeah, it's funny how powerful Main Ingredient (Xur versions) are, and yet....there are stronger ones.

    That Plug One you got is definitely an example of a fusion that's stronger than Main Ingredient. I got a Snorri that came with Surplus that's absolutely absurd, too.

    I've already dropped using scavs to get used to that change premptively, and honestly, it's not that bad? Unless I'm missing some other change.

    In control ammo is still super plentiful, but also it's control, i.e a crazy place. It's a bit more noticable in 3s, especially when being ressed in trials, but it's honestly not that bad - and this is from using Likely, where you'd often commit two special to get a kill

    (Great thing with plug one - no one expects the long range kill secures it can get by double firing)

    You can still convert special into one shots at a pretty excellent rate, so all I'm really expecting the nerfs to do is promote sniper rifle play or similar

    So, I went vault diving as I have an absurd amount of random rolls and I needed shards.

    I found this just drifting around.

    Which then gave me this.

    So, first, surprises are fun. Second, V still slaps.

    Yeah, I'm kind of psyched to bring out my 180 hand cannons from the vault next week.

    The built-in Full Auto option coming with the new season is going to me start to appreciate both those and rapid-fire pulses quite a bit more.

    Yeah, about that. That menu option has been pushed back to season 19. I was bummed since I have the full auto mod slapped on all my rapid fire pulses, even if I really would prefer a counterbalance for some.

    As for 180s, explosive rounds is probably the best roll for them given their range deficiencies. Nice one, Raynaga.

    Aw, whaaaat? I was super excited for that.

  • BizazedoBizazedo Registered User regular
    I was, too. I had a specific sidearm in my vault that I was saving to try out just due to the new setting. Alas, it has been pushed back, and as I am constantly at 499/500, I dismantled the sidearm.

    rip, they're increasing vault space to 600 as of today's twab

    e: also man Bungie, holding deets on the rework until the day of the patch.

    the dude who leaked Season 14's name ahead of time by finding it in bungie.net's cod has potentially found Season 17 as well

    Season of the Haunted. Moon pyramid dungeon, perhaps? 🤔

  • Vann DirasVann Diras Registered User regular
    Aw what no full auto toggle this season?? That’s really annoying. It’d sure be nice to be able to use an actual mod on my weapons instead of the one that just saves my hands from feeling awful

  • DisrupterDisrupter Registered User regular
    Ehhhh I do get that auto fire is an accessibility thing but it’s also does make weapons better/easier to use. Like I can only crouch mid fight if I’m using auto fire weapons. And it’s easier to aim. Not needing to worry about clicking the trigger frees up my mind/muscle memory for other stuff

    So I wouldn’t say the mod as is doesn’t offer gameplay advantage the same way targeting or other mods do

    I think it being a mod and not a control scheme actually makes a lot of sense and I’d be ok with it being that way forever. That way I can pick which guns benefits from it and use it as needed. For anyone who needs it for all guns as an accessibility thing it’s there. Yes they lose a little bit from missing out on another mod but it’s likely not game changing

    It is amazing how something so simple is taking so long and so, assumedly, is rather complicated.

    Still, 100 more spaces for crap in the vault! That'll hold like half of what we'll get this year or something.

    Man I really want to have a reason to go back to Arc Punchmanz Titan but it would take a lot to make me give up void. Right now I shield bash fools, who become volatile, which procs and marks all targets around with volatile, and then they die, explode because of a fragment, which causes everyone's volatile to go off, damaging each other, and then for extra dirt in the eye I'm using severance enclosure for a second explosion. And I have my mods set up to give me 80% of my melee back when I do it.
