    I was on Mars last night and someone started that escalation protocol thing so I thought Iíd join in and help out. Turns out we completed the whole thing after what felt like 45 mins of gaming, not sure the actual time spent. Anyway, at the end I jump to the chest that spawns and I get ďdata decrypted requiredĒ or something along those lines. Honestly Bungie, why do that? What a god awful mechanic. Can you imagine someone new to the game getting that message? Bollocks.

    Yeah that sucks, although the boss itself is guaranteed to drop decent loot the first time you kill it.

    The chest isnt important, it's the weapons the last boss drops. The shotgun that comes from it is brilliant (but only drops from 2 bosses)

    The chest drops the Escalation Protocol armour I think. Something to grind towards with armour 2.0 making it relevant again if you so desire. It's a nice set.

    They should let you grab the loot but keep it locked until you get whatever that deencrypter is. I donít remember getting a weapon.

    I'm hoping we've seen the back of stuff like that. The Escalation Protocol event is challenging in itself and having to jump through extra hoops is just silly.

    Seems like they've streamlined things a lot more with Shadowkeep. Even the main Raid exotic is given through a quest this time, instead of hoping for a 1% drop like the bloody 1k Voices.

    I really enjoyed the actual event but after that long you expect some kind of pay off, I think I just got some shitty shader

    Escalation Protocol was always too long for too little pay off.

    On the plus side, you can restart from the sixth wave after you finish, so farming the weapons is not as bad now. But frankly, I'm glad I've managed to get them all, so I don't have to play it anymore.

    I play it for fun now and again, its really decent especially the last couple of stages. I've always liked the armour so I think I'll end up grinding out a full set with decent rolls eventually.

    But yeah, the key thing is a pisstake for an event that can take the better part of an hour by itself.

    Iíve got two characters for Destiny, one of which I havenít touched in years. Iíve just noticed itís sitting at 753 light level. Thatís a bit odd.

    @AaronTurner Everyone gets bumped up to at least 753 with the new expansion.

    Oh right, I thought it was 750. Not like Bungie to be weird.

    The extra is likely from the seasonal artefact buff

    Yeah if you've levelled up your seasonal artefact then it'll apply a level boost across every character. My Warlock I haven't touched yet is sitting at 756 because of it.

    The "real" power level of those secondary characters is higher anyway, as internally it calculates what level you could be with the highest items that you have. And weapons are equippable on all characters.

    Check DIM if you want to see what level they are. My Warlock is 900.1, and even though I haven't played my Titan and Hunter yet, they are at 806.2 already.

    I still think we should get the choice to run strikes without matchmaking. It would be so much easier for completing bounties. Until then, all I can do is load a Nightfall that starts in a public area, and run off to some Lost Sector or just screw around.

    They should also make Year 2 content relevant again by upping the value of the bounties. So far, bounties for the Forge and Gambit give out very few exp points. You get less than 3k from those, compared to 8k for planet vendors. Even Calus' maps only give you 4k at best, and they take forever to complete. At this rate, people will have simply no reason to play the DLC content anymore.

    What constitutes a "challenge" now? I have a quest that requires 3 challenges to be done but no matter what I do they're not getting done. 🤨

    The weekly ones for the Tower vendors, Flashpoint destination, Nightfall Ordeal, etc.

    Ah ok looks like i need to run the nightfall a few times then. The quests "Day Tripper" and "Gear Up" just will not clear for me no matter ho many i finish.

    Yeah Gear Up is the one I'm stuck on. I feel the game isn't clear about the challenges now. I didn't have a problem clearing them before but it's very possible I've become more dense since I last played Destiny.

    I know there have been a couple challenges that didn't count when I cleared them. Maybe it's bugged.

    Stick to the Tower vendor ones and you should be fine, I think.

    You can go on your quest screen and abandon them. As far as I can see, all quests can be abandoned.

    Hmmm, strange a few have just a Y to view and no delete/abandon. Will Take another look.

    Anyone else make a google keep doc of all the things you need to to to finish all the quests? So u can work on multiple ones at same time :)

    No thatís far too effective, I just constantly flick through all my stacked quests and pick a path manually.

    I also go on the quest screen every time. I don't know who this John Galt guy is, but he sounds like a way more practical person than me.
