• Bane posted a message in the forum topic Destiny, a month later.. on the Destiny board

    166 hours later...I reached a point over the weekend where I think my time in Destiny is going to start tapering off. I'd still like to get the one piece of raid armor I'm missing and get to level 30,...

  • Bane posted a message in the forum topic Are ​Legendary Loot Drops Real. on the Destiny board

    Purples do drop less frequently now than they did pre-patch because all that's left are the real purples. I'd imagine the rate you get a real purple drop is roughly the same both pre- and post-patch t...

    @anund: Is that what happened? That makes more sense, although I don't like the idea that I actually owe them something. My instincts were telling me they were bad news, and that I should have droppe...

    I thought it was funny the Queen's brother put a knife to my Exo's throat. Dude, I'm a war machine, a robot. Good luck trying to slit my throat.And then later on he says "She's saying you owe us." No ...

    @karkarov: After I thought about how I still earn Crucible rep while wearing my Vanguard item I figured my assumption was wrong. Thanks for the clarification!

  • Bane posted a message in the forum topic Destiny Questions. on the Destiny board

    @sterling: Vanguard. I decided to go all in with them considering how long it takes to earn rep. I bet @karkarov is right. You can check your rep by clicking on one of the factions in the Tower secti...

    I received the same email. I switched my payment method to a new card recently (and re-entered that same card info again because of the email), but I haven't seen the subscription charge show up on i...

    There are at least a couple of interesting theories on what that different story was, or may still be if it's ever revealed in future content.The first I read (and now can't find a link to) was someon...

    @thestandardtoaster: I'd decode them now. According to the 1.0.2 Patch Preview "Only Engrams that drop after 1.0.2 are subject to this change." which means the decoding behaviour of any engrams that ...

  • Bane posted a message in the forum topic Destiny Down?. on the Destiny board

    I was dropped to the title screen with various error codes (centipede, anteater, canary) at least half a dozen times over the weekend. I wonder if the DDoS was the cause because it certainly wasn't no...

    @sterling said: Anyone know if its worth leveling up vanguard rank past level 3? Is there a point to going to level 4? As soon as I hit level 3 I started doing FWC. But then I noticed I could keep goi...

  • Bane posted a message in the forum topic Grinding to a Fault in Destiny.. on the Destiny board

    I've got the Vanguard Marks thing figured out now so I'll be able to buy my gear in a semi-reasonable amount of time. That is until Bungie drops another patch nuke and destroys it from orbit because S...

    It's like they're actively trying to get people to quit playing their game. It's a bold strategy, Cotton. Let's see if it pays off for them.SPOILER: it won't.

    After reading your blog post I logged into the game, looked at the equipment I wanted to buy from the Vanguard vendors, and did a little math. This may be old news to MMO veterans, but to someone like...

    I don't see anything wrong with the treasure cave and other places like it. If Bungie has a problem with it they need to recognize why players are doing it and make adjustments to the underlying issue...
