Reposting for the new page!


For people who have been asking questions about Destiny, I've been doing my best to answer them. I've been looking over all my posts in this thread, and will post links to the informative ones in this one post.

Hopefully, this can help answer your questions you have about the game. If any of my info is incorrect, please let me know and I will revise my posts. And if there are any useful posts you'd like me to include here, I'd be more than glad to edit them in.

First of all, broony's super informative post on PvE:

So I like everything about the hunter. But I've seen some people claim that Hunter's are supposed to specialize in Snipers. Is that true? I didn't know any classes had gun-specific skills. I really like that the Hunters have skills that benefit their knife and meleeing, as I love running around and meleeing in shooters.

But I'm a terrible sniper and might have to go with a different class if Hunters encourage you to snipe.
Don't direct quote me because I haven't really done any heavy research into the classes and sub classes but I wouldn't force hunters into the role of "the" sniper class but to me they seem like the precision (headshot/weakpoint) class. They get a few perks I believe for shooting and landing abilities on weak points or getting killing blows on those points (precision kills). So you'd get the same perks from 3 headshot kills with a shotgun than you would with a sniper you could say.

Only parts I get are the moon wizard, space magic and Pet Sounds is a Beach Boys reference. No clue how it was all fit together, or where the bottle comes in =p

Dax01 is a massive Beach Boys nerd, so she just had to find some way of tying them onto the thread title ~_~

I didn't even get to see the clips. Were they taken down?
Yup they were up for a while but it sounds like Bungie, Activision, or MS got them pulled pretty quickly. They were recorded from an Xbone and there were noticeable frame rate drops.

Not exactly sure how it fits together either. Hopefully, Dax can stitch this all together for us that are perhaps... not up to her genius?

Not directly. But the Hunter is the only class that has specific skills that focus on precision.
Yeah things like that and the Titan forcing close quarters with their 2nd super the dome shield and being able to get close quarters safer than other classes with the sprint shield make them more ideal for shotgun and the charge rifle.

And the Warlock is pretty much all about the Nova bomb and Energy drains. Don't expect a whole lot of gunplay or straight up kills out of the best in that class, cos their recharge rates need to be the priority. They cripple and leech better than they remove numbers from the field.

Wow, I actually thought that was a bullshot from the game first.
I actually came across that image while checking out DeviantArt for some cool Destiny wallpapers and such. This game is going to be massive in the nerd community, I'm calling it now.

On a side note, a new anime series has started airing in Japan that is about a girl who joins her schools Airsoft Club. Since Airsoft is another love of mine, this show is my pick for the season :)

Does destiny look better on the ps4 or does it basically look the same as the ps3 version, any differences?

Why are you comparing 2 different gens?? Of course the PS4 version trumps over the ps3.

Blah. Finally beat Guacamelee.. not sure what to do now. :c

Edit: Heyo! I'm a member now.
I've been switching between Guacamelee and Resogun Heroes to lessen my Destiny cravings. The latter helped loads!! Do you have it?

Forgive me in advance.
I think the OG thread title had to do with lightning in a bottle, the name change kept the bottle part in it.
Sage Merill uses the metaphor "catching lightning in a bottle a second time" in one of the Destiny ViDocs.
Basically within the first few pages, the TC asked if the original title (about catching lightning in a bottle a second time) was acceptable to everyone. And based on the response, decided to change it to include the reference to the ViDoc HiredN00bs is referencing (which is apparently a reference to the success of Halo) plus mix a reference to The Beach Boys (due to liking the band) as the new title plus moon wizards. Thus the random title.
