    @crashVoodoo same speed, pretty much. Just as usual, weekly and daily challenges give you items 2-3 points higher than your average, while Prime engrams give you a bit more than that.

    Assuming the next content drop is around March this time, it's plenty of time.

    The raid is gonna be 640. I wonder how many streamers will get close to that in these three days.

    Welp, I thought at least the first Forge would have been easy, but the last boss is level 630 and you only get two minutes to kill it. Even for a fireteam, that's hard (there's matchmaking at least). Might be a while before I get to even unlock the bounties at all.

    (the game says the recommended power level is 610, probably an understatement)

    Yeah itís more a power throttling issue than anything else, from my experience of lvl 1 it comes down to being able to burn enemies down quick enough. The timescale is so tight though itís like 2 mins to get 20 orbs from the challenging enemies and throw them at the forge drill thingy. Very tight, but at least it re-matchmakes quickly enough.

    First impressions are that I donít think itís going to appease lapsed players, itís still grindy and uninspiring quest steps around the forge events, but itís very early I guess. If the forge activities arenít varied enough or the reach is to far to level up people may turn on it.

    The first two waves are not that hard. If you find a good team and everyone focuses on the right enemies, you can do it without too much trouble. It will get even easier as people level up, but the boss is not unreachable. The boss itself, however, is definitely a problem. Since it's 630, I guess I'll have to get to at least 611 before it can be reliably killed.

    On the plus side, you get matchmaking, it's fast enough (at least for now that there are many players), and an attempt won't take too long.

    It all sounds very unappealing to me. I only bought the pass because I was under the mistaken impression it upped the actual level cap. The horde-style public events are my least favourite part of Destiny 2. It's all so exhausting and tiresome for an old fart such as myself.

    @Malek86 Mesa Sean did a video on how to do the boss quite easily at early 600 power level but it's out of the reach of most matchmaking groups for a while.

    My internet has been crapping out for the last two days (what a coincidence). It works, but 90% of the sites don't actually run. Which of course includes the Destiny servers.

    And this had to happen right after the DLC launched. What a surprise.

    Looks like Bungie noticed it made things a little too hard from the get-go.

    The required power level for the Forge activity has been lowered by 5. It's not much, but it should help a little. They also said they'll have more to share when the next news update comes out.

    Risk runner and those gloves with the vampire perk are bloody good! Theyíve completely changed the way I play (for the better). Having a lot more fun now being able to mix it up and hang in a fight a lot longer. 😁👻

    There's definitely lots of grinding involved in Black Armory. The first step is actually just a short taster.

    Essentially, all of the schematics involve the Forge at the end to actually complete them, even the easiest ones. Clear 5 patrols? Great, go at the Forge now. Finish the Tier 2 Blind Well? Alright, time for the Forge.

    Feels like they just wanted to make it longer, knowing that people won't have anything else to grind for a while. Of course, once people becomes strong enough to finish the Forge easily, it won't be as much of a problem. But for now...

    New forge is out, and new raid too.

    I guess I'll be watching streams tonight. I mean, this is pretty much the only time of the year when I watch streamers.

    Shame there's no new Strike in this content drop. And there's probably not gonna be any in the next one either.

    Been trying to do a 270 Nightfall strike for a while but whenever I join I don't seem to get paired with anyone. Is this normal?

    @super_whiskey for reasons that only Bungie knows, Nightfalls have no matchmaking. Officially, it's got something to do about being too difficult for a random team. Which is 100% not true because I play with randoms from LFG groups all the time and we have no trouble whatsoever.

    In theory, you'll want to head to a LFG site and look for someone. Problem is, not a lot of vanilla D2 players use those sites, so everyone there plays the 540 version.

    Looking for clan players might be a better idea.

    That seems a bit stupid, especially when they include a weekly achievement for it...

    I might have to do that then.

    I think I'm coming to the end of what I can do in the vanilla version anyway as I just log in, grind out a couple of achievements and then log off so might have to invest in the DLC to get a bit more life out of it!

    In the triumphs screen, look at the seals at the bottom of the page. Click on each to find out what you need to do.

    Each takes a very, very long time to get.

    Yeah it's amazing if it's the shotgun, it destroys orange and yellow bar enemies.

    Melee them before you unload the first 3 rounds as well to get the trench barrel buff.

    It's still pretty damn special

    The escalation protocol weapon drops aren't random. They are boss dependent apart from one that drops them all.
