    Yes I hate the speed runners, they fuck off and you get the hate of the thousand beasts they leave behind.

    Broodhold is also ps exclusive currently fwiw.

    Woooo Warmind done. Definitely the weaker of the two xpacs so far. Also that boss encounter was balls, but that could've been down to the fact that my current weapons, while powerful, are uninteresting in use.

    While rolling around on Mars I ended up in an escalation mission. They're a bit good aren't they

    @b-rk it's like a horde mode.

    Somebody had triggered a pylon that caused a swarm of enemies to continually drop in. They got harder and harder until a big boss arrived. When he was down the pylon lowered and level one was complete.

    I accidentally joined just cos I was sniping. It's manic and there were loads of players involved as its just a world activity

    Oh right. I think that happens on the EDZ near the starting point by the church. Maybe. Dunno.

    I didn't notice before, but they definitely nerfed those Mercury heroic adventures. Now they play like regular adventures, just with modifiers and a higher power level (not high enough to be relevant anyway).

    I played them up until the week before Forsaken, because I was farming for that Huckleberry catalyst, and they still were hard back then. So they must have changed them with the Forsaken launch.

    Hit level 50 now and I'm currently working my way through some data node things on Mars.

    Without spoiling, is it worth it?

    @crashVoodoo the data nodes quest is not too long, so.... just grab a guide and go for it. Don't expect much though.

    @Malek86 really? Only got 4 so far cos I have to keep grabbing fragments to merge and then find location. It's fun though so I'll stick with it.

    @crashVoodoo no wait, those are the caches. They are kinda useless overall. You'll get an emblem, but heh. Being completely random, getting all 40 of them is a pain. I'm still only at 27 myself, and I've opened a ton of them, because the game can - and will - often point to a cache you have already opened. You'll start hating them long before you are anywhere near the end.

    What you really want to do is the nodes quest. Google that. it's not that long, and you'll get a couple exotic items.

    Geez. I just killed something like six EP bosses in a row (essentially until I got the triumph).

    It's good that Bungie added a way to redo the last couple waves so you can farm those shaders, but it does bring the issue that you can't open the final chest again because you already used the key.

    So it leads to some interesting sights, such as all six players standing in front of the chest and nobody opening it.

    I was lucky enough to get the shotgun on my very first EP completion, only a few days after starting Warmind (I was carried by some random dudes - wasn't even looking for it, I just happened across a large group on Mars and thought "this is my chance"). So I got that in my collection already. After that, I only played it again for the shaders and for the triumph, which I 've just got.

    Everything else is fairly useless, especially the year 1 armor, so... no real reason to play anymore.

    That said, I always join whenever I see a group attempting it, and if I think they have enough players to have a decent chance. The last few waves are really fun.

    We run EP regularly often arranging 6 man teams so people can get the guns and farm for prime engrams. It's a lot of fun and full of yellow bar enemies so Primes drop quicker than in most other activities since they're no longer completely random and drop after a certain number of kills.

    I could move onto the forsaken storyline but I've been doing some side stuff on Mars. Currently have a couple on the go, Warminds glory and I've done 3/5 strikes. I'd be done with this but the prison strike kept glitching.

    A side effect of running around on Mars is getting involved in escalations. This is adding to my nascent dawn quest. Only 5 more to go.

    Decided I'm gonna jump in and pick up the annual pass as well. I can only find it from the bungie/blizz site in dollars.
    $34.99 (approx 27). Anyone know if this will work on the EU version of D2?

    If I knew I was gonna get hooked like this I would've picked up the forsaken pass bundle

    Pretty sure Battle.net keys are region locked.

    We still have no idea if the annual pass will be worth the price. I ended up buying it, but only because I'm already neck-deep in this anyway, and I know I'd hate being left behind while everybody is busy with their multiplayer endgame activities that I'll never actually play.

    Uh, I can detect resources in the Dreaming City now. Short range, probably no more than 15m even aiming down sights.

    Is it a clan effect, or did they just unlock it to everyone to help with Petra's bounties?

    @b-rk just do the daily and weekly things. They show on the Map as the yellow symbols. Things like one gambit game, five crucible, one strike etc.

    I'm about the same but because the quest I'm running requires some ikelos hand cannon it's keeping my power down at 480

    Oh right. I don't do strikes and not interested in gambit. To be honest it would be pointless as I'm playing on PC using a controller and would just be a burden to other players using a mouse. Maybe heroic adventures or whatever they're called would help raise my power level...

    Strikes are good and don't worry about pad. You only need to do one and you'll get a power engram
