    @JonFE

    Hi - it arrived, be warned i had to pay 17.50 in tax and handling charges. I was a bit dissapointed at first - its much smaller than i hoped - 4 inches - but actually build quality is good and it is solid. And its the ace of spades:)

    @cov

    Thank you for the update and info.

    I'm not based in the UK and already anticipate import tax and handling, which definitely sucks. To be honest, around 10 cm is quite small, but if build quality is good I can live with it.

    Mine still has not been dispatched and I'm getting skeptical about ordering Thorn (potential size along with price-shipping-taxes & handling)... I guess I'll see on Monday...

    I don't think it will be another Forsaken-style expansion. Maybe we'll just get four more seasons.

    For the next season, the climb to 750 shouldn't take too long, given how many powerful reward activities are available at this point. Hell, I might even be able to get the Crucible pinnacle weapon eventually, given you only need 3500 glory points (and most importantly, don't lose any progress upon losing a match). It will be just a matter of time then.

    Getting patrol zones. missions, strikes and raids from D1 into D2 would be fantastic. I would pay for that.

    @ozthegweat me too, but I have a feeling that's not what Bungie is looking to do.

    On a side note, I really hope we can get cross play eventually.

    Cross-play would be great, although it's perhaps just console crossplay, at least in Crucible/Gambit.

    And I guess that picture confirms there's no D3 this autumn.

    If they merge D1 into D2, perhaps they'll rebrand D2 to Destiny and there won't be a D3 ever? Just yearly expansions?

    Oh and thank God they're moving the Pursuits out of the character screen tab to the Director with next Tuesday's update.

    Is there a relatively active PS4 EG clan? I have never done any of the raids and would like a chance to do the nightfalls and Shattered Throne dungeons etc. Golden Age Academy could be one I guess.

    I'm relatively casual at the moment due to exams so it'd have to be a clan that isn't too hardcore. I'll have more time to play in a month or so but it would be nice to get some of the activities done.

    Is there an inactive one I can join? I got chucked off the EG one presumably because I'm not hardcore.

    I'm hoping the 'double down' cash wise was more Activision's idea and Bungie won't charge us twice to get all the content.

    The new Eververse store seems specifically designed to make people buy stuff with Silver... and perhaps, also to slowly remove buyable engrams (what with all the legislation going around lately).

    By the way, the pinnacle weapons will take a long time to get. Sniper rifle kills in PvP? Bows in Gambit? I don't even like sniper rifles and bows. Well, I guess the grenade launcher one should be feasible. In due time.

    Could also be a different way to monetise the game. Paying for specific cosmetics rather than the 'gamble' of engrams.

    I will not be chasing the sniper or bow weapons I don't think.

    I still need to rinse the whole season, it's a bit early to talk about year 3!

    But I'll be bummed if they keep returning to D1 areas (Mars, Moon, Cosmodrome) and miss the chance to bring back all the old locations and activities too.

    Still waiting for a proper Vex expansionÖ

    same here, it was good fun - more of a strike on steroids rather than the 'mini raid' I've seen some articles describe it as.

    I quite like the way the runes are needed to get different gear, it seems like a good way to slow the progression down a bit.

    Bring back all of the D1 raids on a weekly rotation :-)

    I imagine that when the new expansion comes out there will be new editions for the price weíve seen legendary Edís in the past going on experience, torn between double dipping on Xbox or waiting and seeing. £10 is a great offer though if thatís the case. Canít see how anyone would be unhappy with that.

    £10 is great - but it's a bit mental that you can't get the digital-only versions for this kind of price. As someone in my clan was saying the other day, seeing as all the DLC is digital anyway, it makes little sense to always have the original disc in the drive - they should give people the option to just do a full digital install. It's not like it will cost anyone anything.

    I'm pretty sure the Forsaken retail edition is just the vanilla game with a bunch of DLC codes for all the expansions.

    Besides, didn't everyone nab digital D2 when it was made free some time ago? I sure hope they did. If you have it, you can just buy the disc edition, redeem the DLC, and then throw the disc into a fire or whatever.

    Same here, got kicked for not 'taking part...'

    Look for Kings of the North - very laid back, but stuff does get organised via the D2 app.

    I'm E-leven63.

    Edit- fucking mobile app...

    So the only way to get imperials is via bounties? Does menagerie runs give you some?

    @eleven63 Cool, I have the app installed so I'll have a look at that! Even if I only get to play the more recent raids that would be good. Usually happy to get involved in Strikes, helping others, filling numbers etc. Just can't always promise to be on every night and that.

    I'm still not sure how Menagerie actually works. What's that bar on the side supposed to represent? Do you get anything extra for filling it completely?

    Yeah, I can't quite work it out. I kept thinking we'd failed but it kept going on. It keeps upping the difficulty when it goes well to above my current light and then back down as we fail. I thought we had to hit the diamond not to fail but it still seemed fine. The last boss is a sponge too, at least the one we did.
