Well I tested the Spare Change that I posted and it's not quite there yet. I was losing 1v1 very easily so I stored it back to the vault and while searching for more weapons to test I found this baby:



I infusioned it right away to max light and played some matches with it, It feels really good, easy to hit crits and with good damage too. I haven't tested hand cannons but it's good to hear they changed for the good.

EDIT:Huh?!? It says 50 in the mag but it's actually 25 lol

This was especially true in the era where MGs were more effective for more kills over time than RLs until they tried to bring them into parity with the ammo drops.

the hunter nerf accidentally going over to anything else that regens means defender titans get like five pixels of health when they deploy a dome, even with Armor of Light

tl;dr if you see a Defender deploy a dome until this is fixed just charge them in their dome, you'll win

Yep, and infinite blade.

Worst part about the hungering blade nerf is that it affected all life-steal / health regen perks in the game. Warlocks, esp sunsingers and voidwalkers who rely on that are so bad right now. Cauterize on hammers does nothing, popping a bubble doesn't regen shields, Red- death does nothing....

Not sure what that has to do with anything. Dreg's Promise is a joke. Truth was Tier 1 for 3 years in 3v3 game modes.

When it was first around, just basically tap all the shoulder buttons really fast was the easiest way to do it. They could detect it and banned people for doing it in PvP though the last time so.. do it in PvE.

edit: just tried it, it's still fixed. no infinite hammers.

I knew about that, but some random I was with in a strike had hammers throughout the entire strike mission. He never snapped out of the super.

You can't do it with a sunspot hammer build because the sunspot destroys the sparrow. you have to select the charge or more hammers perk.

So for Vanilla Destiny, does the game just end at the black garden? Was there other content here that got walled off for the expansions or am I missing something? Does it really just stop at Venus like that? This was a very short game if this is all that Vanilla had...

Also where's a good place to level up? I got up to 25 really fast but after that it's a crawl because I ran out of content to do sorta.

Vanilla Destiny technically ended with the Vault of Glass. Also keep in mind The Dark Below (Crota's End, etc) launched pretty soon after. Though yeah, very short and heavily dependent on how much you enjoy endgame stuff (Crucible + Nightfalls + Raids + loot chasing)

What do you actually own content wise?

You might actually be better of just buying a cheaper copy of Destiny Complete online and flipping your OG Destiny disk if that's what you have.

In your current state no real reason to play if that's all you got.

Just the vanilla destiny disk. There's no flipping this because it's absolutely worthless now lol, the cheap deals for the collection are long gone since places like gamestop still have it for full price. I won't be able to get a deal on it till destiny 2 is announced when everyone offloads their old copies. I just want to try and get the plat so I can be done with it. The guides are really unhelpful since they all have the DLC interwoven into them.

You can't reach level 30 in vanilla without raid gear, and that's not something you can get playing solo..

I mean, I get why people hate the nerf, but I've always viewed it as the Dreg's Promise of Rocket Launchers.

Not at all. There's only two Rocket Launchers in the game which can simultaneously have Tracking + Proximity Detonation: Truth and Gjallarhorn. Gjally does more damage (which makes a difference when trying to kill a reduced-armor roaming super like Hammer or Bladedancer) and can get cleanup kills with Wolfpack Rounds even if you didn't land your rocket properly and just did splash damage. Truth, on the other hand, has way more aggressive tracking and used to be a better PvP option because it had 3 Rockets instead of 2.

It became a really popular Heavy option because the most competitive primary and special weapons were all Legendary (Palindrome/Eyasluna/Clever Dragon + Sniper/Shotty), meaning there was no reason to settle for a Legendary RL.

With a single rocket in the mag, it's literally garbage tier and might as well be taken out of the game. Ash Factory, Titanium Orchid, Gjally, shit really anything is better.

The base game is fairly limited. The Platinum trophy for this game is pretty easy though. The only trophy you'll need some help with is Flawless Raider. Since you don't have any DLC, you can't go for the easy-peasy Crota's End flawless. A Vault of Glass run with no deaths is infinitely easier now than it was before the power creep, and stuff like swords make navigating mazes and jumping puzzles a lot easier, but it's still fairly challenging. I mean a team of max-gear players today running you through the raid can probably get through it without dying, but since it's been ages since most people have regularly run it I'd wager wiping at Gorgon's or having somebody bump into a ledge and dying at jumping platforms is totally possible.

Also I don't know how you plan to get the platinum without getting the following trophies:

I'd have thought he could level up to 40? It's his light which is gonna be capped due to the engram sources he'll have access to. I mean he doesn't have the DLC but he's still on the same version of the game, I don't think he's on vanilla leveling structure?

It'd be hilarious to get them all done in one run and have trophy spam on your screen :p A Hard Mode Flawless Raid where everybody jumps on the same clan.

To answer his question about leveling the rest of the way, I suggest bounties, strikes, and PvP.

play this weeks mayhem clash. fast grenade/melee/super/special ammp/heavy ammo. slap on your void subclass and just let it rip. if you got that void legendary primary auto rifle from vault of glass, basically any kill you do will be = void kill. rejoice that death dont take away your % like in year 1.

this patch had been great for me cause I just started my exotic sword quest and required 25 sword kills in crucible. mayhem clash helped too for heavy ammo. prior to this patch, its so hard to get a sword/sword's hilt kill without getting shotgun to the face.

40, how? Vanilla was set to level 30. CE increased it to 32, HoW 34 and TTK to 40 and introduced LL.

Afaik vanilla players shouldn't be able to go beyond lvl 30 and LL 170.

heard one of my online friend said he gave his vanilla destiny disc to his nephew/niece and his roommate is playing with him/her on his profile (with collection version) with another char
so i occasionally see his account on playing crucible, their light level is around 270~ initially now there 300+ (last i saw it was aorund 340~). They are lv 40. I'm talking about his nephew/niece too (they have vanilla).

i think for vanilla, it only locks them out of the expansion strikes. they can still raise LL by crucible tho, which probably caps at 385 for legendaries and 365 for blue rares.

I have no clue what you mean by raid gear. I just hit level 33 doing PvP because I haven't touched it at all till now, it gives loads of exp and is way better than killing low level enemies that give little exp. My light level right now is 155
