The sad thing is, you don't even seem to be a bot. Fuck right off with your racist shit.

Looks terrible, but all I care about in a SS movie is Harley Quinn, so hopefully they get her down correctly.

Reef Reveal Recap

So House of Wolves is coming out May 19th and for those of us who have been playing it since release, it's a pretty big deal since many of the core mechanics are getting changed for the better. Here's a quick recap of everything that Bungie's has revealed via its Twitch streams so far. This thread will be updated as we find out more about the Prison of Elders and the Trials of Osiris.

  • As everyone has heard by now, there will be no raid. Instead there will be a three man end game activity called the Prison of Elders. More information on this will be added after the Twitch reveal.
  • The Reef is the new social space and will have its own vendors related to the Queens Bounties, The Prison of Elders and the Trials of Osiris. You will also be able to access your vault and regular bounties from the Reef.
  • The economy of the game is being simplified. Things like Vanguard and Crucible commendations are going away and you will no longer need them to buy vendor gear. All you will need is Glimmer. Any Commendations that you currently have can be cashed in for 250 experience points into its respective category.
  • In order to help simplify the economy, materials can now be changed into other materials. Do you have 1000 Ascendant Shards with nothing to use them on? No problem, you can change them into Motes of Light or Glimmer. The materials that are going to remain in the game are now going to be interchangeable, so less time will be spent trying to grind out one specific type.
  • Every legendary weapon and exotic weapon in the game will be able to be upgraded to the new maximum damage of 365. Even original vanilla Destiny weapons that seemingly became obsolete after The Dark Below was released can "ascend."
  • Similarly, any legendary and exotic armor in the game can also be used to reach level 34. Meaning that being the maximum level won't require everyone to look the same. You can wear any piece of armor in the game and still achieve maximum light level.
  • Upgrading weapons and armor will require an item called Etheric Light which drops from Nightfall missions, daily missions as well as from the Trials of Osiris and the Prison of Elders. What this means is that you DO NOT need the DLC in order to reach the new level cap, however, progression will be a lot slower, since you cannot do the new House of Wolves activities.
  • Upgrading weapons and armor will also become simplified. Any new weapon you get will start at 331 attack, and the upgrade damage or defense nodes have been removed entirely. Meaning all you need to unlock at that point is the perks. Once all perks have been unlocked, you can ascend the gear to the current maximum (as stated above) using Etheric Light.
  • Any new vendor weapon can have its perk re-rolled now. Did you ever end up doing the Nightfall, only to get some shitty weapon with terrible perks? No problem, now you can take that gun to the Gunsmith and he will reforge the weapon into a something with different perks, meaning you can change it until you get your ideal combination
  • The Gunsmith will also be selling telemetries now as well as Xur, meaning you can level your gear faster then ever.

More to be added after the next Twitch reveal.

@humanity: @liquidprince: i guess what i'm saying is that if there is a more varied way of doing something, even if it takes longer and involves more risk, then i would prioritize that over rewards. if i'm fed up with a boss, then sure, i'll take all the cheese i can get, but i'm not down with players who dictate impatiently to others purely because they want so many shards or whatever before they have to go for their dinner, to me that's putting the cart before the horse. it's the gameplay i like, not the gear.

That's fair, but if you're also the only one just running around and constantly getting killed, which means your team needs to keep risking themselves to come save you, then you're making the experience needlessly harder for everyone.

There are literally Nightfalls that are impossible to do without hiding in doorways or whatever, especially if there is any type of burn modifier. Finding a tactical location to shoot the enemies and retreat out of distance is not cheesing the game. The enemies leash for a reason. For example, I'd like to see anyone do this weeks Nightfall, which has a triple burn modifier on it, without trying to funnel the last boss through the cave area 300 style.

i'm fine with finding a tactical location and hunkering down as long as it's inside the map, it's when a team gets to the boss room, stops outside, and just shoots through the doorway that pisses me off, no-one even wants to try anything, most people seem to just want the rewards.

If you're seeing the boss, then technically you are in the map. Standing out of firing distance and using the area where the enemies leash as cover is just what makes most sense. Like I said, if you think otherwise, try doing this weeks Nightfall without employing some of those types of tactics.

it's a pity this hasn't gotten more traction, the game really goes up a notch when you're working with people who communicate well, which only really happens after playing together for a time.

at any rate I'm down to join, the conditions sound ideal for me, the one stipulation i have is if we're doing things like nightfalls i want to avoid tactics like hiding in the entrance where mobs can't get you, which i think is do-able if the team is communicating and working together, and not at all do-able if they're not. if it takes deaths and restarts to get into a rhythym then so be it, i'd sooner that than cheese through everything.

I'm not playing too much at the moment, I'm hooked on Diablo right now, i do jump on at least once a week to earn and spend coins, but i'll be day one for the next expansion for sure.

31 hunter, also down for pvp, although be warned i'm an inconsistent crucible player, some days i'm top of the pile, others i can't get shit together. Gimme_H

You can join my clan if you like. We have 6 members currently, with at least four members that play daily. I myself play pretty much daily. We all have mics and are all cool patient dudes. Lemme know if you're interested and I'll message you the name.

EDIT: sorry didn't realize you wanted to make the clan yourself. Well either way the offer still stands.

Digital only releases depress me.

@liquidprince: If you're wondering why people dislike that story-line it's most likely because it's completely inconsequential to the rest of the show/book. It's basically just a side-story, nothing that's ever happened there has ever had any real sort of influence on anything else. Sure, more and more of the different lines have developed into that as well, but it was like that from the start, back when everything was intertwined.

Except that she is building a larger and larger army, consisting now of thousands of Unsullied and three ever growing dragons, all in the hope eventually taking back the Iron Throne. She is one of the biggest contenders to be standing as the ruler of the Seven Kingdoms when all the dust has settled. So I don't really understand your viewpoint.

I don't really understand the hate that Dany gets... This is the same character that started off the show being so meek that she was essentially getting raped every night. She's slowly gained some semblance of power in her life, but she's young and inexperienced. She isn't just going to be this amazing queen right off the bat. She's growing and learning, and in the process shes going to make mistakes, and her ego is going to get in the way. But she'll learn.

Assuming she isn't murdered soon.
