    Tom Clancy's The Division

    I just happened to chance across that the other day looking for something completely different for work - I’ve just ordered it myself. I love unconventional books like that with world-building materials, etc. included. I answered my own question about the caches above - it looks like they’re calculated according to your current gear score when obtaining them, so opening as you go is definitely the way to go. I jumped from World Tier 1 to 5 in a single session last night. No idea what to concentrate on next, though!

    Thanks for all that @FiveFootNinja, very helpful. I think I’ll give the DZ a miss until I’ve mopped up the rest of the bits on the main map. I’ve hit level 30 now and am concentrating on trying to get my Gear Score up. A quick question: I’ve earned a Field Proficiency Cache since hitting 30; are the rewards scaled to your GS when opening it? In other words should I open it now or wait until I’ve beefed up a bit? EDIT: Also, I’m getting 110,000 EXP for every piece of intel I’m picking up now that I’m 30, as opposed to the 330 EXP per piece I was getting before. I feel like a total mug for having spent hours and hours tracking most of them down during the story campaign!

    I’d be up for that (once I work out what HVTs are!) if I’d be at all useful as a new level 30. I assume not, though.

    I've been playing through from scratch recently too and I agree with all of that (although I'm on PS4 rather than Xbox). I've been prioritising side missions and encounters and mopping up all available intel collectibles as I go, so when I get to the story missions they're challenging but not overly difficult. Very much enjoying it. I'm level 29 now with a couple of story missions left to finish, and two wings of the Base of Operations fully upgraded. I'm a bit lost as to how everything works post-story and I haven't ventured into the Dark Zone even once. Again, I have no idea what that really is; I didn't feel the game did a particularly good job of explaining it. Am I right in thinking it's a mixture of PvE and PvP where your own teammates can turn on you and steal your loot? I can imagine grouping with randoms is particularly stressful if so.

    Thanks so much for this. A few different options to chew over there. I'm more than happy to leave the older raids until later if people would prefer that given the point about the restricted scaling. As long as we're not going to be hugely overpowered for anything then I'm up for tackling stuff in any order. So, our potential team members are: 1. Billy Brown 2. Razzle 3. spanx 4. dreamylittledream 5. Pavey 6. StephenM (maybe) 7. bagapeas 8. pledge Let me know what kind of power level you are at the moment and we'll work out the best option. I'm more than happy to wait for people to get up to speed if needs be.

    Ah, okay. That does sound like it might be worth doing. We'll get the expansions added and see how we get on. Thanks again for the advice.

    Destiny 2 - Out Come The Big Guns (part deux, redux)

    Thanks for this. We're currently playing the vanilla release from PS+ with nothing added. The code from the edition we've bought will add the two Y1 DLCs and Forsaken all at the same time, as I understand it (but doesn't include anything from the current annual pass). We're currently around 235 or so. If we can crack on with the expansion missions without getting overpowered for Leviathan then that sounds ideal.

    Finger on the pulse as ever, I've recently played through the campaign with a friend. Other than that and a few strikes over the last couple of sessions, that's all we've done. We've both got a copy of the Legendary edition but haven't installed any of the expansions yet. I'm keen to try and do the original raid as 'purely' as possible. That is, with other people who have never done it before (if at all possible at this point) and not at a level that's way higher than first envisaged. My original plan was to get through the Leviathan raid and open up the expansions after. So, should we hammer the strikes until we reach 300 and then try and get a group together? Is that the best next step? Or am I being needlessly cautious holding off on installing the expansions just yet? Also, I realise this is an extremely long shot at this late stage, but if anyone else is yet to do the Leviathan raid and is keen to do so 'blind' give me a shout. That's how I experienced Vault of Glass in the original game and it's one of the best game experiences I've ever had.

    Did you ever manage to get this sorted? I'm one of the ones who expressed interest in getting a newbie raid group together. I've played through the campaign with @Razzle and we've been playing a few strikes over the past week or so to get our power levels up since finishing it. We're still a little way off 300 but I doubt it'll take us too long to get there. I've checked back through the main thread, and when you first posted @pledge and @StephenM both said that while they had either played a little or seen videos of a couple of encounters but had never actually finished the raid. If they're still in the same situation we're close to having a full group. It would be amazing if we could get a group together who have never done it, although I guess it would be some ask at this point.

    I'm absolutely terrible at competitive shooters and have no real idea what I'm doing here. But I did manage to get a victory on my third go despite one teammate fucking off on his own at the start and promptly dying. Best game ever, 11/10.

    Excellent, thanks. I should be able to put a decent amount of time in so I'll see how I get on.
