don't forget to inspect the area between Zavala and Tess to get the emblem.

edit: you also get a speech from Zavala if you talk to him. also the "wings" of the All Mighty are still up there it seems. it's getting kinda dark right now so it's less visible but they're still there.

Don't forget to do anything on titan you haven't yet. It is probably gonzo on Tuesday

Anyone watch from the farm?

I thought that was pretty cool. Hope to see more like it...

I finished the pass awhile back. Hope the XP changes will make it a bit easier for pass ranks next season because I doubt I will have as much time to play.

Titan could be wiped out. Even if it’s part of campaign content. They would have to rearrange things or maybe even remove the campaign from the game. I wouldn’t rule any of that out as I think Leviathan’s raid lairs are on the chopping block too.

Bungie has the numbers on what people actually play.

D3 IS NOT happening so... I’m expecting some transformative changes. Who knows what that could mean but changes of the sort are not that uncommon in mmos.

It seems that next season title has been leaked ... Season of Arrival

We should make a new clan. I’d join the GAF one but... what’s it called GAF? Meh... don’t like it

I'm honestly 100% okay with there being no D3. Granted I'm not a video game designer but I'd assume if they don't massively upgrade the engine we'll be stuck with the same limitations were faced with now. But if they do upgrade the engine for next gen consoles/PC then that'd be leaving a lot of current console owners behind.

I game on a high end PC so unfortunately the games progression is tied to the consoles cause of the userbase. Hopefully they can figure it out though, I love the world of destiny, it definitely needs to be bigger but they're ready complaining about file size so I don't know.

Ever verse leaks confirms next season’s title. Season of Arrivals.

That leaks also confirms that the fall expansion will launch on September 22nd.

The original leak mentioned that one of the two new activities for next season takes place on the the moon’s pyramid ships. We shall find out tomorrow.

I like that they kept it quite. It’ll be exciting to log into a new season tomorrow and see what’s coming next.

I’m hoarding bounties for artifact xp.

Finally finished getting all the trials weapons and the exotic trials ghost last night.

honestly, I like that everything is kept hush hush. data mining is nice sometimes but I feel it's really getting to the point that there's no more surprise and fun because of it any more.

got on and did some sorting and grabbing all the seasonal reward out of the thing. didn't really do much in terms of bounty hoarding but I'm not too concern about getting a jump on next season anyway so I'm fine with it.

Same here.

I guess we will see something big in about 3 hours though. I kind of wished I took the day off today.

Wow, Bungie, just wow.

Now we all know what Sony presentation and every other will open with. You can basically skip the first ten minutes.

I know people will be pissed but I am actually happy there will be no D3. While I can think of hypothetical advantages to building a new engine I also see with the playerbase of both old/current/future systems coming out they'd be leaving people behind regardless. The idea of starting over all over again honestly seemed tiring and I don't trust they'd magically "figure it out" to make the jump worth it. So to manage file size they will simply vault old content and then add in new content which again I am perfectly okay with. Also I know I am falling for nostalgia but vault of glass and cosmodrome coming back are straight up making me horny so yea.

Cosmo is super exciting to me, hope they have link to edz without having to totally reload even if it doesn't make geographical speaking

so much changes and also glad to see they planned things out all the way to 2022. seeing the return of VOG and other D1 stuff would be fun for me at least and I imagine a lot in the community would like it.

can't wait til later in the day when I'm off work to really dig into this.

Holy shit. Two expansions. The exo stranger.

After Disney raped Star Wars beyond repair... wondered if I’d ever love anything like that again... Yes and thing is... I like Destiny more.

Best fucking sci fi shooter ever

Edit: Darkness subclass! Woot!!

Edit 2: holy shit they announced 3 expansions... lol ... TAKE MY MONEY!

Edit 3: a new dungeon launched today!? It looks amazing!! Holy shit again.

Edit 4: 170k players on steam right now. Game just exploded again. Lmfao. Holy shit again

I love how hard fans complain and it just keeps coming back bigger. Just accept how much you love and obsess over it nerds.

Drifter is the seasonal vendor. New handcanon mods are exciting. I love the drifter as a character so ... that’s fun.

Update 1: Pretty sure they pulled back FOV in tower instances on console. It looks like the lighting system improved too. Da fuq?

Update 2: After cashing in completed 28 bounties... some weapons dropped ... repurposed steel sybil sword and gnawing hunger... repurposed for new season... I imagine some perk pool changes as well. Lol oh boy ... there’s gonna be a lot of reeeeeeeeee about that

Update 3: New seasonal activity is escalation protocol meets gambit.

Destiny community I have an important question.. and This question will determine my return to the game

so .. I’m an old player last thing I played when I stopped literally after Crota , So the question is :

if I want to return is there any way I can jump to the game with the current level without playing many missions to reach 900 ? Is there a boost I can take

You can’t start playing endgame activities right off the bat and start at like 750 power lvl. They removed requirement to have beaten all campaign stuff to participate in playlist activities like strikes, pvp and gambit, and more etc... with the launch of the f2p version last year. You can just jump in

I mean I want to be the same level as the players today so I can start from there I don’t want to do endless missions to level up .. I told you I’ve been away from Destiny

I don’t know if they boost you more but power climb to max power should be quick. You won’t be underpowered for anything really other than maybe trials of Osiris, the most recent raid, year 3 dungeons, and this most recent seasonal activity. And then there’s the artifact... I don’t want to explain that now lol... you’ll be fine. I know what you’re concerned about but that issue doesn’t exist like it did in D1. You’ll be near power softcap within a week or two at worst.

Update: further impressions of season. NEW PERKS! Weapons from the Darkness. Got a bow with two new perks on a single roll. and ummm the mods and armor upgrades... like enhancing your mobility stat?? I don’t get it yet... overload

I got the catalyst also. I think in first game of crucible.

There’s a new legendary sword type. Vortex. I got one from the umbral engram at drifter and there’s another in the season pass. Basically holding the attack button launches a black talon like projectile. the one that dropped for me came with vorpal weapon too.

Dungeon is available. Maybe we meet the nine!? It’s power lvl 1040 so I have some work to do before I can play it proper.

This is better than last season not even a day in.

1040 will take me a while but that's ok.

Got a few 1006 already.

New sword sounds cool. The seasonal exotic is crazy good especially in groups. Essentially unlimited gernades. Wonder what the catalyst will do to it.

thank you for your response but I think I’ll play it once I got my PS5 .. 60fps is a good way to return to Destiny world .. man I missed everything about it specially the story ..
it's free to play right now anyway. why not jump in and do some of the stuff right now before they got vaulted?

I just realize that the exotic sidearm Traveler's Chosen that's in the database but not known on how to get yet, is actually the first gun we got after the tower was destroyed in the beginning of D2 and we were fighting for our life in the wild. only difference is, that gun was Traveler's Chosen (damaged) and has 0 power lvl and a white gear. how I know that you ask? cause I have it in the vault still... lol

The idea of old stuff getting removed are lowering my willingness to keep playing (the little I do play) because I don't want to loose the ability to complete armor sets or get a weapon or its catalysts.

I don’t mind content being cut at all. The stuff being cut is played by almost no one. I don’t think I’ve spent any time in a patrol zone not the moon at all this last year unless it was part of a quest or featured some farming exploit I was aware of for bounties etc.

A quality control initiative would be nice. For some reason Houndish can be seen saying that there’s three raids coming this fall. I find that hard to believe but then again... aside from a pyramid raid... vault of glass is confirmed.

Saw the new map director. No Mars, no IO, no Mercury, no Titan... EDZ needs to go or be reworked too, only because I think it’s ugly....

Campaigns being removed could be a bit of a bummer I guess but once again... never replayed campaign content since the day they came out.

Mars was very convenient for bounties that required a lot of kills, that's the only planet I'll miss. Everything else, including the Red War campaign - eh, don't care.
