    Destiny 2 - July update inc prestige lairs now live

    If you can find a couple of others to farm a prestige nightfall, that might actually be quicker. Stick on a burn and heavyweight modifier and they are generally easier than strikes and net you a lot more tokens. Caveat being you are running the same strike over and over but you know, Destiny innit...

    Chalk me up as another finding the TCGS bickering all a bit exhausting. I have done for a few months but this week made me question if I can keep listening. Clearly it’s all a bit staged or arranged or whatever as there is no way a person with any sense of self respect would allow themselves to be spoken to like that. If it’s staged, that’s fine but can we just tone it down a little? If it’s not, then fucking hell Elmo, are you on drugs? I’ve been listening to Elmo since the Playradio days and the later Joypods when Sean joined are something I would credit as helping me get through a particularly hard time in my life. They were hugely important to me and I loved them. The gentle ribbing of Michael and their banter was clearly borne out of affection for each other. I still crack up when someone says ‘magnetic’ in normal conversation. This though, all just feels a bit nasty.

    It’s all about the orb creation really. Crucially you create an orb on every multikill not just for your team but for yourself. A fireteam all with masterworks makes for a lot more supers creation. Personally I’d just dismantle all masterwork armour for which you get masterwork cores which then allow you to modify any weapon into a masterwork.

    Sounds like that’s what they’re doing though. ‘Teams investigating changes’ sounds like ‘we’ll try and make it less shit’

    Looks like you can just go for the ornaments if you already have previous armour sets as the IB ornaments are already available to view in-games as options on my S2 set of IB armour.

    They've removed the timer. There's still points and you get emblems for beating various scores. After you beat normal NF once you get a scorecard that allows you to add modifiers, elemental burns and LL handicaps to a Prestige run, which adds score multipliers. It's actually a pretty fun system if you want to go high score hunting and mess with the difficulty levels. Can't remember the actual limits but you can run a prestige NF with 350 enemies and then give yourself something like a -25 handicap and that triples your score. It's fucking chaos though obvs. You get an engram for beating normal mode regardless of score. There is also NF specific loot. Mostly ships and sparrows (whoop-de-fucking-do) but a few good weapons on some of them, not this week though.

    Esoterickk, the complete nutter, has beaten Escalation Protocol already. One of the people on his team was 370!? How is that even possible? Anyway, looks like you need a key to open the last chest which could be annoying if you don’t have one.

    Whoever it was who asked ‘does light matter?’ I can confirm that yes, it does. Me, Baring and Finite just took 1hr 20mins to do a single heroic strike. We were all 340-345 and just getting slaughtered and one-shotted by the genesis mind solar gun It was ridiculously fun. Obviously in a few weeks we’ll breeze through it but for now it’s good to have a challenge and a need for a team strategy back in strikes.

    I'm sure I read (or heard? or just plain imagined) that they tweaked EP to the point where nobody on the Bungie team could actually complete it as they know they'll always be outdone by the community and people playing it. It sounds like its ripe for some interesting strategies and team coordination for clearing out mass hordes of enemies against what seems like pretty strict timer. Like Court of Oryx though, crying shame that we can't patrol in teams of six.

    The exotic masterwork for Crimson apparently takes up the range to 100%!! Mental. There are still issues with the game (the mod and shader vault-juggling minigame is still an utter abomination of UI and design) but they are clearly intent to make shooting aliens in their stupid fucking faces fun again. The exotic buffs, the strike modifiers, masterworks, new weapons, ranked PvP and the hardcore challenge of the new horde mode means I should be playing this for a good few months watching them explode in a shower of space magic. Story and lore IS still a bit shit but that's never what drew me in in the first place.

    Yeah and you have access to all of them at all times. No more need to vault or transfer emotes.

    Nah, reckon there will be a few around, me included. I thought I was done with Destiny but I came back for 6v6 classic Iron Banner, jumped back in to be milestones and then this week, farmed the nightfall about 10 times for the exclusive AR. So yeah, apparently hooked again. Fuck. Totally understand those who have checked out completely, Bungie did fuck up but I just can’t help myself, it still feels so good just shooting stuff. They still need to fix a ton of stuff but if the word on the street is to be believed what they have planned should sort a lot of the issues. YMMV of course, depending on how angry you get about video games.

    Work has begun on installing the games room. Wondering if I’ve taken it a little too far.
