    It would be better if they just opened this content to everyone, then finding other players would become easier. Gating it behind a DLC, which was already gated behind a DLC itself, is just asking to fragment the players base.

    Destiny 2 in general seems to love timed missions more than D1. Many of these aactivities would be completable solo, even without adjusting the difficulty, if you didn't have a time limit to think about.

    Ah, timed missions are up there with protect missions/escort missions on the list of things I hate. Perhaps Bungie could make some changes so the rest of us casuals can rinse some enjoyment from the game now that the hardcore have finished with the forge stuff. Just make powering up a bit faster would be a start.

    If you only do the powerful gear rewards without raiding or a clan you would have hit 650 by now if you were 600 at the time of the Black Armoury launch. The gift of horror story (around Halloween time) was a huge power catch up as well that only took a few hours to get. There really isn't much grind in destiny at all, there is plenty of optional grind if you want it (repeatedly doing frames to get perfect rolls for example) but none of it is necessary.

    One of the Izanami's Burden quest steps requires you to complete a rare bounty, which can very rarely be obtained at random upon redeeming daily bounties. If I can't find and complete one before the end of the week, I won't be able to do the next step until a new full curse.

    This is my last week of vacation, so I really wanted to get it done before the work grind starts again.

    Interesting. Iíve put an ungodly amount of time into Destiny 2 and have yet to reach 600 but I donít bother with pvp activities tbf. I think thatís why I miss the Dawning activities so much. I enjoyed that content quite a bit, the game feels a bit empty now, for me anyway.

    Managed to hit 618 today. But the D2 world seems quite empty this week. Hopefully next Tuesday's update includes some new content after Bungies extended holidays. I've yet to complete a forge, been close, but so far it is tough. Think I will give that grind a rest until I reach 620.

    @eleven63 You just need to use the clan to group up. You'd walk through the first couple of Forges.

    Haven't failed a forge since the first week of each one, you must be having some shitty luck eleven :(

    If you are on pc I can help if you need it.

    The bad news: just got the Bountiful rare bounty. But I already used up my weeklies. So I cannot get Izanami for the next three weeks. Bummer.

    The good news: after two months of tedious work, I finally got Malfeasance!

    Ha. Itís been a while since I switched to different weapons. Everything new I try is less effective than what I have been running. Go Figure.

    Can't connect to Discord. A bit of a pain as I just put out a shout for help in completing the machine gun forge quest!

    @Switch024 Managed a couple of attempts with a clan member. Didn't quite make it! Having another go tomorrow, I'm now a comfortable 620, so hopefully can now make it. But credit to Colonel Permanent for giving it a go with me!

    I haven't tried those yet, what's so bad about them? Is there more to the black armoury than forges?

    In "really uninteresting news" I've now completed the first forge 3 times in a row... Go me of course, but wtf?! Who cares, job done.

    Oh that's plenty, it's enough for the next 2 as well. The third forge is probably the easiest of the lot as well.

    The 4th forge is 650 power level enemies and is trickier than the others but titans can absolutely annihilate the boss using the sentinel spec.

    Whisper annihilates the Bergusia boss too, since it has ridiculously huge crit spots. The forge itself is a bit harder than the others, but some enemies also drop multiple charges, so overall it's no big deal.

    At this point, I can't even remember the last time I failed a forge. I'm more annoyed by the fact that, give it a couple months (and the next DLC) and we probably won't find many more people in matchmaking... meaning I need to get all the relevant quests done before that happens.

    Welp. The kill time is similar though.

    Now that I think about it, all weapon frames can be forged at Bergusia, so it will probably have players all around. Shouldn't be too much of a problem then.

    @Frogofdoom Good news! Haven't really used the sentinel spec, sounds like I need too!

    It's because the walkers legs are all separate targets so the shield causes chain reactions. It's not nearly as effective on on the bosses due to them being single entities, the void grenade does it as well.

    If you have doomfang pauldrons you will get 3 supers across the forge as well meaning you can use one for each wave and one for boss even if the rest of the fireteam aren't generating you orbs (provided you have some super mods and have a reasonable kill rate otherwise it may end up being 2).

    @Frogofdoom Thank you. But this highlights my problem with Destiny, you could have said all that in Swahili, would have made as much sense to me. Lol. Not your fault of course, I need to try harder. But, as always, I really do appreciate it when ever I get help, advice, pointers on here. Peace.

    Yeah this black armoury in reflection really is quite poor isnít it. Repetitive in the extreme really, crappy drawn out fetch quests in between. Most of my friends, even the hardcore destiny players seem to have wandered away again and itís not exactly drawing them back.

    Iím at a point where Im thinking fuck it. It feels horribly Grindy every week now to get frames etc, I canít be arsed I donít think.

    It's the opposite for me strangely. With my very limited time nowadays, when I can play, I usually do the forge bounties. Three months of those other activities have bored me already, so all I'm interested in right now is getting the Armory quests and exotics.

    I've just found Jotunn and it's a proper beast. Like a mini rocket launcher for the special slot.

    But chances are that, when I manage to get these last couple quests done, I'll put the game on hold until the next DLC (and since I don't care much for Gambit, it might be an even longer break for me).

    Better wait until you are at least 610.
