Hopefully with D2 going PC as well, we don't end up with some PC elitist fools like in the OW OT.

I think it would be really great to drop discord and turn DGAF into what it once was.

Discord is super of putting.

It's really not. Much easier to discuss and group up. Then on here. Only reason this OT has so many OTs is most of it is lfg posts.

So I booted up Destiny again, I haven't played since Rise of Iron launch. I am mainly here to complete the Age of Triumphs book/get the veteran emblem for D2. I don't have any interest in doing the raids or Trials, can I still complete the book or no?

Sentinel Perk Tree's as of the beta.

It seems to be even better than what I was imagining. Health for the Sentinel and nearby allies on every melee kill?! Overshields for the Sentinel and nearby allies on every melee ability kill? Plus Ward of Dawn. Plus Overshields give faster reload, melee damage, and last longer.

First Cluster is just PvE Defender heaven. 2nd is more PvP.

Hopefully we have a separate Destiny 2 OT from the console one, especially with the presence of some PS4 groups that ruin other OTs with their blogging, post-burying and passive-aggressive arguments with good players.

I don't see it. But you've already made your opinion know. For along while about discord.

Hell this place at times was extremely cicrcle jerky if you wanna go that route.

In my mind, ward of dawn was 'free' and didn't require giving something up in the perk tree. I now see that I was mistaken on that belief.

I don't even attempt to "keep up." But it's fun if you feel like an active chat and it's good for forming impromptu groups.

Man, looks awesome. I am loving the increase in abilities effecting teammates. Will make raid compositions really interesting.

You can still complete it. I did so with two blank pages (Trials and Raids) and the equivalent of 2 more blank as well. IIRC you need 60 nodes to complete the book (each three I did got me 5%). I can't remember how many nodes there are on each page, but that's your wiggle room.

I really like Discord for smaller groups. I use it for my clan of about 12 people and it really works for us.

With big groups it turns into a cluster fuck which is hard to follow, unlike this thread which is easy to keep up with.

I'd imagine it would be much easier for the more spontaneous raids, than those that will be a couple days later. Just for keeping track.

Hmm, I don't think it was either free or giving something up- it WAS the super for the class.

The super for the class is now the Sentinel Shield, which has defensive uses as well as offensive capabilities, but you can also have optional access to the Ward of Dawn (or, from the looks of things, trade that for additional offense in the form of a second shield throw).

Not really, there is an LFG channel, plus once the group gets full you can make a group chat to work out the finer details.

What I mean is, when we saw ward of dawn being available as an option by holding down the keys, I thought it was just an innate choice you could make without having to specifically select it in the tree (thus giving something up that you could otherwise select).

I know that's what you just said...but I'm saying it's what I meant.

The only real downside to Discord over a thread is that Gaffers that join the game late after release (or come back sometime after launch period) can't get a feel for how active the Destiny community here is and they can't just pop in Discord to check without an invite.

That was something that was cool about other programs like TS/Mumble/Vent or whatever. You could just hide the info in email tags and people could join at will.

There is a solution to that being worked out for D2 launch I believe.

I agree, I also think Discord will be great once the PC version comes out (I don't keep my PS4 near my PC and I rarely kept my laptop near my PS4 so Discord for GAF was always a from my phone thing when I was trying to find a group. On PC however my friends and I always use it for all the games we play together so I expect lots of groups to form and use Discord for communication on the PC side of things. See you guys on the PS4 Beta tomorrow though!

The admins handle the invites, is all. When people in here ask for an invite the admins handle it. It's not like Discord is some hidden secret looking at the OT title.

Like WipedOut said they are figuring out a plan for D2.

Like WipedOut said they are figuring out a plan for D2.

I want to be clear, I'm not criticizing how it operates now. I'm acknowledging that it's likely run that way for a reason. I'm just not aware of that reason and haven't had any desire to question it really because I don't see a need to question it.

Like, I'm sure it's been discussed and I trust they came to run it the way it is for a reason. That's all.

My original post on the topic was just me adding to the overall discussion what I think the only flaw is in the current way that it's run. But it's not a super huge deal to me either way.
