    @b-rk fwiw, I always play Crucible with the controller. I get better results than using the mouse and keyboard, because the game gives you hefty amounts of auto-aiming. So don't worry too much about it and just join the fray.

    Quickplay seems to be a good place for a beginner, too. Never seen anyone griefing or being an asshole.

    I only ever play deathmatch in multiplayer games. i suck so much i hate letting the team down in any team based game.

    Reminds me of playing sports at school tbh.

    Free for all in this game is like asking to get your butt kicked though.

    At least with team deathmatch I have a chance to do decently.

    @b-rk I was just like that last week but seriously, give the strikes a go. the 2 other randoms I ran with had much better gear than me so I must've seemed crap but it was still a lot of fun.

    i'll probably never run the raids but i'll definitely be running more strikes when I get on next time, gotta do 5 with this hand cannon equipped for a quest.

    Team deathmatch is also better if you aren't a good player, because your assists will count. In FFA, if you can't kill the enemy before they kill you, it's all pointless. But in TD, if you manage to hurt them before they kill you, and then a teammate finishes the job, you still helped the team. And you'll get partial credit too.

    I usually get fairly good scores at the end of the match, even though I'm rarely the one inflicting final blows.

    That said, most crucible bounties and quest steps require you to make final blows, so you can't just get carried there.

    Found a bunch of these sleeper nodes around the place and I'm loving the hunt. However, literally the next step in the quest which requires me to have the ikelos hand cannon equipped is to do escalations and find 15 nodes.

    The kicker being that none of the shit I've already done counts. BAH!

    So finished my last escalation off with this equipped and it also completed the next step in Nascent Dawn quest. What's its next step? 5 strikes, which I've just done in the ikelos questline. Bungie you chuffs!

    I can see why people could be put off this game, fortunately I love a questy loot grind...

    Wait until you get the Luna's Howl quest. I checked the steps online, and just gave up before even starting.

    Redrix's Broadsword is less difficult but possible more tedious. There's about 10 steps, one of which is simply, 'prestige 5x in PVP in one season'. Killed any desire for that gun very quickly.

    I'm taking a little break from the game. Waiting for the 30th October update where exotic drops are more likely to be Y2 before playing again, every time I get another Riskrunner it crushes my spirit that little bit.

    The Festival of the Lost is coming next week, so that should be a reason to pick it up again. There's gonna be a new quest too.

    I feel like that about warmind. I thought I had defeated the final boss, that almost gave me a heart attack but there is more, and yeah, nope!

    @Malek86 What usually happens during that event? From what I recall in D1, there were paper masks and raisins, but nothing like unique armour sets or weapons. Are we expecting anything special this time round? TBH some ornaments would do me.

    The sets I want back the most, other than obviously Tanik's Cloak, are the Sparrow Racing League sets, but apparently Bungie are never bringing that back because not enough people played it.

    @GarlVinland they haven't said yet. But if there's a quest, I guess there's also gonna be some reward.

    Previous events like the Dawning and Crimson Days had ornaments and emotes, so maybe there will be something good. If you get enough bright engrams, that is.

    What are ornaments?

    I see them mentioned but can never see anything that looks ornament'y

    Also isn't there a murder or some shit to get your Sherlock on with during this festival thing?

    FFS I just realized most people have 2 pages of stuff you can look through. Tess has a load of shit I can spend this crappy bright dust on.

    Each sod all the fancy weapon quests. Most of them require way too much grinding. The only y2 exotic I bothered with was the ace of spades because I'm a hunter so I needed it/it wasn't that bad of a grind.

    @Bichii if/when you get the Chaperone quest (it's way too random), that is fairly quick to complete. Too bad the gun isn't great imho. I want the Universal Remote back.

    Stupid question, but one I hope you you'll be able to answer.

    Why can't I find the Leviathan Raid? The icon is missing from the Director. At least it's not where it used to be.

    Picking D2 back up after a year away. Previously hit power level 279 but never bought any of the DLC.

    Is it now locked behind the DLC or something?

    So, info on the festival. The usual stuff: cosmetics, more bright engrams, new bounties from Amanda.

    There is also gonna be a new activity, the Haunted Forest, which sounds like some kind of timed dungeon with increasing difficulty. It will have matchmaking too.

    And finally, a new quest line about avenging Master Ives (lmao, they finally killed him off). That will start on October 30th though.

    He only appears on Friday and lasts until the weekly reset on Tuesday.

    You'll have to wait two days.

    Tooling around on Titan to complete some challenge and on turn in I dropped an exotic chest. Can't remember it's name but it gives me 2 knife charges. Bag of shit I don't use them. Moving on.

    Spotted a new mission about light on IO from ikora. So ran through it and it gave me an upgrade for a new subclass l. Who knew?

    20 minutes of agonising followed by the glowing realisation that the aforementioned exotic chest is actually fucking stunning.

    A quick shuffle of the keyboard to make it easier to hit dodge and now I can chain burning knife throws like a mother fucker. Dodge and recharge my knives. Rinse and repeat.

    Been practising on Mars and it's very powerful, problem is now my dodge is on the button what was my interact button so I now dodge roll instead of opening chests 🤣
