entropy's pinnacle is probably the worst and most unfun quest I've have come across. It's not even hard but they just keep throwing a bunch of enemies at you with their shields and cheap shields. Every where I turn theres a dude with his push shield.

pls help!

EDIT: nvrmind just changed to the lightning class and wait for my special. Horrible mission!

Late post, but great OT Ruthless.

I wanted to test see if there is still people needing Flawless Raider this late in the game.
I was running them fairly regularly in year 2, but have been slowing down play because of lack of content.
If enough people need it, I can put a group together and find a time for everyone to play together.

Rubbish offering from xur this week,

The ram
Empyrean bellicose
Knucklehead

Also there are no 3oC.

I'm still waiting on xur to sell the new warlock gloves and helmet since they won't decrypt from engrams for me.

They loosened sbmm apparently and put more emphasis on connections.

The reality is that the lobbies are just as laggy as ever but you now have a pvp God in there to stomp everyone and pad their kd and less reason to rant on twitter about how sweaty it is.

Just means that the other 99% of the community has to sweat it out.

Sure, but the question remains: what are the class items that go with those two sets?

Promotional material for the Dawning shows the Lamentation set with the current Vanguard class item (Vitruvius Mark), which makes me think there isn't a specific class item to go with the set.

Not sure about the Snowglare set. Not sure which class items goes with it. :/

Omg I attempted Aksis challenge mode with PuG teams two nights in a row. Big mistake. Didn't finish it either night. People keep scrubbing. We even failed a last stand, and I think that was the first time I've ever failed a HM last stand.

And then people get mad at you when you try to offer suggestions to help out. I honestly didn't think the encounter was this hard.

I feel like a lot of people new to destiny can get to 400LL in regular PvE and are attempting the raid without admitting that they've never done it before and causing a lot of wipes. And they try to jump into "experienced groups" because they don't want to be in a scrub group either. Maybe it's long past time to move on to other games.

Bought Destiny Collection from XBLG sale... despite being highly disappointed with this long ago during the beta. Seems improved for sure, though Old Russia is about as boring as it was then.

Tell me there are people playing on Xbone here.
I don't really trust matchmaking for Strikes. The partners i got for Devil's Lair were pretty bad, i revived them like 50 times in an hour and they didn't realize the spider tank boss had weak points... (I couldn't tell them what to do because i didn't have headset on hand at that time, box unopened.)

How long does it take to level to 40, roughly? Currently level 13, played maybe 6h total.

You should have received a Spark of Light which will take you directly to Level 40 if you wanted to skip that process. Check the postmaster, inventory, etc. When I bought the PS4 version of Destiny The Collection (which I barely play [317 LL] - not sure what made me think I would have the time to do all the content/faction stuff over again) it didn't show up until I was Level 4 for whatever reason.

In fact, you should have two Spark of Lights...one for Level 25 (?) and one for Level 40.

Only one Spark of Light for level 40. I'll save it for when i want to play a Hunter or a Titan. I'll go through the leveling with a Warlock. Just wondering how long it takes, not that leveling bothers me.

(In WoW, i tended to create new characters every now and then... when i finally hit level 80 as the cap was then, i just quit.)

I usually pubstomp 1 game and get stomped the rest. Freaking exotic butt towel quest will never get done.

If we get 4 more people together we can make it happen. I already have S-Rank but I need 3 1st place wins on Mars and 1 on Venus for the old book.

Additionally, are there 5 players who want to help my ass in rift for the Red Bull sparrow?

Edit: Oh yeah I completely hear ya on that collision stuff. I have been knocked off course and out of the way numerous times by other players and then, at the end of the race when I ram them after the race ends its like I hit a brick wall and either stop completely or get knocked back and nothing happens to them.

One and the same! I noticed the speeds right off when I restored P.T.. Went by a lot faster than it did backing it up. When I did it the last time on my regular HDD, it was slow going both ways.

Easiest way to avoid getting knocked around by other players during srl is to stay in first place :D

fwiw, assuming 160 speed bike (and assuming speed aint normalized, not quite sure about that) the key elements that one might occasionally ignore when playing SRL are 1. not using both sticks on curves, and 2. not using side dodges to make hard curves smoother. All the rest, like threading the needle, using tricks during jumps to recover side dodge energy faster, or drifting onto gates on curves, or avoiding jumps if you don't need them, comes quite naturally.

using circuit gloves certainly helps a lot, but is by no means absolutely necessary.

not a whole lot of time. you should be done in less than 20 hours.

You'll most likely wildly overlevel quests quite fast, especially if you're also doing bounties.

Sadly, there's stuff that you'll simply need to re-do on different characters to unlock, like the dreadnought patrol and, im guessing, the plaguelands.

real grind is related to light level.

Sounds reasonable. Some re-doing is not a big deal. I doubt i'll play with all three classes anyway, Warlock feels like it is my thing.
