    Got my resplendent set, finally.

    If you are playing a Titan, the best way to get past the super kills hurdle is to set your Sunbreaker to the top tree (for some reason Sunspot kills don't count, so the bottom tree will be a lot slower) and then trigger an EP. You'll easily get 8-10% at a time.

    Too bad the armor can't be used for infusion. But it will still increase my power average, so leveling up should be faster too.

    @TitanWarlord93 I may well join the clan, since everyone but 2 of us dropped out of the one I created ;-)

    As a result it's often hard to run the nightfall and raids as people are so flakey via sites like the100.io.

    I'm debating whether to get an ultrawide monitor... mostly just for this game.

    Right, here's a thing. Is it just me or is the elemental orbs return on strikes abysmal.

    @ChiefGB most of the orbs seem to come from elite enemies. Use a matching subclass and weapons, it will generate more of them. I had enough orbs for the second tier after just a couple strikes. I guess it helps if everybody else is using the same elemental class and weapons.

    What Malek said. I was playing solo on the weekend and getting solar orbs is a complete grind by yourself. They only drop from yellow-bar enemies, and I was getting 6-8 per strike, same when I tried an Adventure.

    I'm also struggling to get the required super kills in the crucible, as with my armour all at 200 it certainly feels like I am getting insta-killed a hell of a lot. It's hard to get more than 1 or 2 kills with my super before someone kills me.

    You can simply equip only that piece of armour needed for Super kills, you don't have to wear the full set. The full set is only necessary to generate orbs.

    I was Raiden Fluxing my Super kills, sure enough when I only had 1 kill left I got teamshotted 4 or 5 times, having had to complete 3 more matches until I completed the objective.

    I'll do my other two characters when Mayhem comes back tomorrow.

    For orbs, play the Redux missions. They have tons of yellow enemies. If you want to go even faster, Payback is your biggest friend, since the tank can kill everything with one shot.

    For Super kills, you best wait until tomorrow, because Mayhem is returning. Also some sub-classes are better than others. For example, good luck getting any kills with a Sentinel, you will be better off as a Sunbreaker.

    There's a bit of uncertainty over how the Solstice armour is going to be ported to Y2 so I think I'm going to give it a miss, no matter how good the Hunter one looks. There's mixed messages whether it can be infused to 600 (presumably yes), how the new mod system and random rolls will work (presumably not retroactive) and whether it can be masterworked after the Solstice event is over (doesn't look like it) so other than the aesthetic, it looks like it will be obsolete as soon as Forsaken drops.

    On the other hand, got my Whisper. Joined an LFG with 2 other guys and it looked to be lost by the time we reached the final room with only 6 minutes left, but somehow managed to pull a rabbit out of the hat and the Whisper popped with 4 seconds on the timer to go. Easily the most thrilling thing I've done in the game, and the weapon is well worth it. Utterly brutal damage. Now to masterwork it.

    aaargh - wish I had known that before! Thanks Oz, that should make a big difference :-)

    You can also switch your armour during a Redux mission. While you need to wear the full set to start the mission, you can simply revert back to your higher level gear at the start of the mission (but only after it has finished loading) except for the piece you want to complete the mission for.

    @GarlVinland it does look pretty useless. You can't even use it infuse other armor, so there's relatively little point in obtaining it.

    Even then, it's one more thing to chase after. Reminds me of the time when I got the Black Spindle with literally two seconds left...

    Yeah the Whisper catalyst and the accompanying ship will keep me going until Forsaken, both look well worth the time.

    I had my first small taste of a raid lair this weekend with the clan, I was just trying to keep up the entire time but I definitely see the appeal. Very mechanic heavy. Now just need to have a crack at Leviathan for the Midnight Coup.

    Was just having a lunchtime browse of the Destiny Reddit threads, came across this very handy spreadsheet someone has done that lists all the Exotic catalysts and how to get them p thought I'd share it

    @ozthegweat

    That's not a bad idea I didn't think of that.

    All I got to do for the first set is complete 7 more patrol missions, super kills and solar orbs from strikes.

    Already got 2 pieces completed so perhaps I could switch to higher level armor maybe?

    Looking forward to Mayhem tomorrow so I can get all these super kills we needed.

    @breakablepants Cool, thanks. I guess one has to have the corresponding weapon equipped (e.g. Huckleberry during adventures, or Risk Runner during Heroic strikes/Nightfalls) for the catalyst to drop? Or is the drop rate the same when using other weapons?

    @ozthegweat no, that's not necessary.

    I'm not sure if a catalyst can drop if you don't at least have the weapon in your collection, however.

    Geez, those requirements for the Sleeper Simulant masterworks.

    I'm not even sure what the point is, since Whisper of the Worm should be better in every way.

    The Whisper catalyst adds a 1.3x crit multiplier I think to an already pretty absurdly powerful weapon. Can't wait to get it and melt bosses.

    My favourite catalyst is for Polaris Lance. It's become my favourite PvE weapon now, even above Graviton. Firefly on precision kills, plus the Perfect Fifth base perk that also adds explosions. It's probably the only reason I managed to do the Whisper quest.

    Lots of people complaining on Reddit about not getting catalysts to drop, I think it's the typical RNG issues TBH. I normally only play Crucible to hit the weekly milestones or when it's Iron Banner, and I've had all 3 catalysts drop in the past month. I got the Sturm one yesterday from the Vanguard strikes.

    Not sure when I will have time to complete all the kills required tho! And yes, the Raid ones will be tough, I've not even completed Leviathan yet - mainly due to flaky FLG teams.

    Can you still trigger the Whisper mission? I've tried two Taken Blight events yesterday, but the Ultra didn't appear.

    @Malek86 should still be able to, it's available Friday to Monday at reset. There's a couple of different spots the ultra can appear, not always in that cave.

    What surprised me is that none of the players in the area even bothered to try and look for the Ultra. And I kind of tried going around, but didn't see anything.

    @breakablepants It's the strike catalysts that appear to have very low drop rates. Sturm drops from any activity on Nessus and seems to have a very generous drop rate.

    @SpeckledJim Re:Sturm: after farting around Nessus the other day, I got back to the Tower where not one, but two Sturm catalysts were waiting for me at the postmaster :)

    Can you obtain whisper today before the reset at six, or is it only Friday - Monday?

    Admittedly I haven't got any of the strike catalysts so far, whereas I already have all of the PvE ones and even some crucible.

    I'm not even sure if those catalysts can drop from strike enemies at random, or just from the final chest.
