    @Malek86 That would be good! Are you on PC? Not too sure if I'm high enough light level for Wish Ender, I'm about 565-570 at the moment but should be able to increase that with some of the dailies and weeklies.

    @MatMan562 yep, PC here. Let's see if we can find a third person too.

    The Shattered Throne technically requires 590, but that means you can get by with 581 and you won't have any red arrows. I suppose even 575 would be acceptable, if you can stand doing a bit less damage.

    https://www.reddit.com/r/DestinyTheGame/comments/9gwl1u/powerlevel_based_damage_scaling_in_pve_aka_power/

    The other thing is, you can't do Wish Ender immediately, you have to complete the dungeon at least once first, and remember to speak to the statue before leaving.

    The dungeon itself isn't too hard, although the bosses can be a bit of a pain. We had a sherpa last time I went through, so we made it easily, but I can tell you they are a little harder than the average strike boss.

    Whisper can be done any weekend, and any power level will do, so that should be easy enough.

    Is 600 the new cap?! The old one was, what, 400? Seems a massive jump.

    @Phattso heh, you'll reach 500 just by leveling up to 50 (which you'll do easily by playing the story), so it's not that much of a jump.

    Also, since there are many more sources to increase your power level now, the gap is closed more quickly. Used to be only weekly and daily milestones did anything, now there are quite a few more sources of powerful gear.

    In the end, I think the time it takes to reach the new cap is actually less than it was for Warmind, where leveling slowed to a trickle past 370. I actually didn't reach the 385 cap until the Solstice event, and only because of that super-powered armor they gave away that increased my average. For comparison, it took me two months to get to 600 in Forsaken.

    Interesting, thanks for the info. I never made it higher than 345 in Warmind, but I really wasn't caning it at any stage because Hollow Knight took over my life. Likely to be the same story here.

    I only recently dug out my headphones (with mic) with some vague plan to tackle the raids. Still haven't done the launch raid yet. :)

    I still haven't played any raids at all. Can't be bothered with mics. Played some activities with LFG randoms, but never used a mic.

    Also, the PC text chat allows people to have a degree of understanding even without voice chat. No reason to use a mic just to tell everyone "let's go to the tower first, I wanna check the bounties". Not something you can use in a raid, but for anything less complicated it's just fine.

    But if we don't have mics, how will we be able to form a Barbershop Quartet?!

    In D1 raids, the Mic was essential to explain the encounters. Not sure text would cut it. Text only never even worked in World of Warcraft back in the day - if you wanted to actually succeed it needed mics I usually found. YMMV.

    Is it possible you're just shy? ;)

    Do the Halloween event for a couple of hours and get horror story. It will boost your level loads and make the grind to 600 much easier.

    Think it's only around until reset today so you'll need to be quick.

    @Phattso I played all the D1 raids, with a mic of course, but I can't be bothered to do the same in D2. I know they are much more mechanics-heavy, and that everyone needs to do their job perfectly. Doesn't sound relaxing to me.

    More fundamentally, I don't much like doing random chit-chat while playing games. That seems to be the only reason why some of my friends even play multi at all. It's also the reason why I never join them.

    @Malek86

    I'm with you on that. I talk all day at work, i dont want to talk when i'm gaming.

    The odd emote and jump works fine for me.

    Yeah, chit-chat doesn't do much for me. If I want that I'll head down the pub.

    What I would like, though, is to get in on a decent fireteam for some Crucible action. I reckon I could actually be quite handy with an organised group. Would be fun to find out.

    @Phattso most likely. I mean, that's probably the only way anyone ever got a flawless Trials ticket.

    we usually do raid-type stuff on sunday afternoons, best thing to do is pop on the discord and see whats happening in the multiplayer-things channel (which is basically only destiny atm)

    edit: but you wouldnt find a virgin fireteam... except for last wish, which we havent got round to yet

    @Malek86 I'm actually a little higher than I thought, 581 when I equip my highest level stuff. I'll definitely look into it more though, heard someone try to explain it before and it sounded a little complicated.

    Hopefully we can find a third player and get a time sorted! Anyone else want to join us on PC for Wish Ender and/ or Whisper?

    @MatMan562 you can't do Wish Ender the first time anyway, so completing the dungeon will let you learn how it works. It's really not that difficult, the bosses are a bit hard, but the mechanics are easy. If you have a set of armour with Trascendent Blessing, it will help.

    As for Whisper, we'll have to wait until Friday anyway. The mission is only available while Xur is around.

    The Dreaming City is the only time I've ever felt under-levelled in Destiny.

    I'm getting tired of Gambit. They said the special Primeval has "nearly as many chances to spawn as a regular Primeval" during curse week, but between three weeks ago and today, I have played a lot and still haven't even seen it.

    The next step of the master Ives murder whatsit went live after the update. Have to go and do some (4?) LS in EDZ.

    Haven't done it yet though as a mate from work picked up the base game for free to try on his pc (had on PS4) and he's hooked and forsaken is on the cards already. I'm playing through the campaign with him but using my titan

    Loads of fun in a fireteam init

    Agreed. Plus, 3 maps is getting a bit boring, it's all too rinse and repeat now. I assume they'll add more maps in the next update, but would be nice to get something interesting in the meantime...

    Yeah it's great, I think it's a much better game when played with a group. We did the Shattered Throne last night and it was brilliant, hope they do more of those.

    And it mostly went swimmingly, would love to be in more of your raids if I wasn't to much of a pain.

    i've watched a few leviathan walkthroughs so that should i ever do it i'm hopefully not a completely useless tool.

    i get the bathers/lift bit, the jumping gauntlet section and even the boss 3+3 split but i'll be fucked if i can understand whats going on in that garden bit with the dogs.
