    This has been a reminder that our world makes no sense anymore; I get a lot of solid D2 information and guides from fucking Forbes.

    LOL - it's like whenever I Google to find out what Xur has each week, the top links are all to shit newspapers like The Express and the Daily Mail - pure linkbait.

    To his credit, Paul Tassi has written consistently well about Destiny and his opinions are usually spot-on.

    I used to use that site all the time, and then they added merchandise and live streams and it all became a bit shit - they don't update it very quickly anymore. If I don't know what Xur is selling by 5.01pm GMT my weekend is shot to hell ;-)

    @breakablepants I am usually out with friends at that time, so I wouldn't notice if they aren't the quickest. Or too drunk to remember ;-)

    Does anybody know what the difference between the DestinyTheGame and the Destiny2 subreddits is? First I thought they are about D1 and D2 respectively, but in the first one there are also topics about D2

    Think DestinyTheGame is the official one. The community managers post there so I follow that one.

    Hit level 20 in DO last night. Only have 2 nights free before reset though so won't be getting the Graviton catalyst this time. Enjoying it a lot though, the loop during rally is very addicting.

    I'm finding it rather frustrating tbh, really irritating to spend the time getting my levels up to get jipped right by the chest etc or on the way to a pool.

    It definitely can be frustrating, doubly so when I'm trying to rush it this week. I've accidentally piloted my Sparrow into the sea or jumped off ledges multiple times.

    It would play better IMO without such a severe time constraint, say 2 weeks for the rally or just having factions all season round with only this week having Renown, but it doesn't seem like Bungie will change that. I'm happy with the change in pace though. Would be much easier with full faction set as levels build much faster, still haven't reacquired a full set again yet.

    If you have multiple characters, there's an easy way to get tokes quickly: simply do the daily faction rally milestone on each character, it's something like "loot a sector in the EDZ with 3x renown". This can be done in 5 minutes, and the milestone resets every day. I don't know how many tokes that nets you, but I think it's enough for 1-2 ranks. So at least 3 ranks per day in 15 minutes (with 3 characters).

    @GarlVinland Ah right, thanks. Good to know that there are Bungie employees lurking there as well.

    Also, Titan is easily the best place to farm. The Cargo Bay 3 lost sector is one of the easiest to clear as you can camp the entrance and snipe the boss, then rush the chest. It's the smallest space and the 2 public events are the easiest in the game, especially if others are around to help.

    EDZ is also good but I find the lost sectors vary in difficulty a lot more, and public events spawn in too many places to guarantee an easy one.

    That indoor public event gets really hairy though with the rushing of thralls and the debuffs. It is however usually a busy one for guardians too I guess.

    I typically follow the public event - patrol/elite that drops chest - lost sector routine so public event is usually first, and dying isn't going to lose renown. Always in that order because those exploding thralls catch me out, often. Even faster with faction gear, a PE and one patrol gives you 5 renown.

    Most people now know the Titan events well so I don't usually have a problem completing either, except the odd level 30 who shoots the damn spider tank before I can load the arc charges.

    Also, there's a thread on the subreddit where people are complaining that a one week rally is inconvenient for people who might be away that week, or busy with commitments etc. One of the community managers said they're watching this rally and taking in the feedback, so maaaaaybe we'll see a change next time.

    How hard would it be for them to just not turn it off next week? It's not like there's something else waiting to take its place.

    Unforunately, my first thought when it comes to D2 these days is, how does this decision make Acti more money? I suppose the pressure of only one week means people feel obliged to log on to unlock stuff, whereas 2 weeks would be too laid back? Wouldn't count on it I'd say.

    In a way, they're guaranteeing that a subset of people will log on again in a few weeks time, because they won't be able to get everything this time. And perhaps again a few weeks after.

    Those ornament objectives are very easy to meet. The rank requirements are gonna take a little longer.

    But I'm already at rank 17, so chances are I'll be getting my rank 50 reward before the end of the second rally.

    Humble Bundle is selling the PC expansion pass for 15.41 for the next week (though will be a bit more expensive if you don't subscribe to Humble Monthly)

    If you were after the DLC pass have a look at Humble Bundle

    So I was thinking, any PC guys here who feel like attempting the Trials? I would like to visit the Spire at least once.

    I'm sure a team put together at random will have no trouble winning a match. Eventually.

    Once Im levelled up appropriately Im up for any and all endgame activities on PC. Im sure we could put a decent group together. Time zones might be the only issue.

    I think PvP is level scaled, so it shouldn't matter. The only question is whether you are any good at shooting targets who don't behave predictably (I'm not, but I should be able to hold my own, maybe).
