    950 is seriously punishing. I'm sure a few luckily matched fireteams would be able to scrape through but for the majority it would be a painful experience. It requires coordination and actual, real teamwork.

    They tried Guided Games for this and it's still in Beta (basically dead) after 2 years because hoping for the best just doesn't work for high level activities. What they really need is to take advantage of the tower and rework it into more of a LFG hub with either text chat or an interactive bounty board somewhere for matching up with others.

    Guided Games is dead because it requires a team of two clanmates.

    Whenever I paired up with randoms on LFG sites we always won, even if we had little to no preparation before launching, and even when they set up the worst, most punishing modifiers available. It got to the point that I just started wondering why I had to bother with LFG sites in the first place.

    Guided games is dead because those clan members can just go look on LFG for players and get a bit of background information on them at the same time. It's exactly my point, why risk playing with randoms and ruining runs by having to load back into GG every time it goes tits up?

    People that go on LFG sites have absolutely nothing in common with the people who play casually on their own with little to no interaction with other players. It's when you're mixing these 2 tiers of players together that it becomes a mess.

    Hmm this now in Steam and Forsaken -40% got me back trying it. Enjoyed it quite a bit while playing free on Battle.net - at least Bungie got me paying for Forsaken.

    So festival is back, the tower looks great all done up for Halloween. Itís just a shame I hate the forest game mode. I see thereís a new public event thing on the moon map. Is that the dungeon? It doesnít seem to have labelled itself as such.

    No, you have to do part of the public event to unlock the dungeon. Eris gives you the quest for it along with the weekly.

    Just finished the new dungeon. Took an hour and change and was very enjoyable. There's only one actual boss, very encounter/puzzle heavy which is a nice change of pace.

    @SolidSCB Are dungeons matchmade? Or like smaller raids where communication is required?

    As far as I'm aware you have to group up, no matchmaking. Once you've done the prerequisite it will pop up on the Moon map.

    The last part of the dungeon is pretty hard and you'll be squishy at anything under 960.

    Ouch. Will be a while until I can even attempt it then.

    I'm 950 and managed it as part of a 3, so it's not impossible. You'll just die a lot.]

    As with the last dungeon though, it is soloable if worst comes to worst and you fancy a proper challenge.

    I never managed to solo the Ogre in Shattered Throne... I doubt I'd manage here. I'll try though, just to get a feel of the place.

    I'm willing to find a group for this, because I know dungeons are too hard for randoms. Well, if anyone on PC feels up for it, give me a holler.

    Yeah I did it with a friend and an LFG who couldn't talk but could listen, and it was still pretty tough especially at the end.

    It's a great piece of content though and it doesn't have wipe-heavy mechanics, so picking up a couple of players on LFG isn't as likely to be painful as it would be with a Raid.

    Looks like it's also needed to get the new exotic weapon, so I'll have to try at some point...

    FYI - The Sunshot now has 12 bullet's (pre update, only 8) and therefore is now useful. Still one of my favourite Hand Cannons in the game, and now better.

    So theyíve removed the weekly reward for vex offensive rendering it totally pointless now.

    Yeah that's a really weird choice, considering its a time-limited event.

    Anyone tried that Escalation Protocol type event on the Moon yet? I'm pretty sure my game went into single frames.

    I have tried it. It's even more hectic than escalation protocol, the enemies all spawning from the same point. Chaos.

    Just finally managed to get a group decent enough to take the final phase boss down. Got a nice sniper and ghost shell, thank you very much.

    Decent little event and absolutely perfect for farming candies at the same time.

    @lordofthedunce on the other hand, it's exactly the kind of event where the Huckleberry shines. While the others were taking care of the bosses, I was raking up extra seconds like nobody's business.

    Now that I think about it, we haven't had faction rallies in a long while.

    At least they made the previously exclusive catalysts available as PvE drops, but it would be good if they could at least bring back the faction vendors. There must be lots of new players out there who can't complete their weapons collection because they missed the faction drops from year 1.

    Quick question: I've some exotics that are now blanked at 750. I'm around 840 power level, with some 850 items. Is it worth infusing at this stage, or does it keep levelling quite quickly to, say, 900?

    I'd wait until you are around 900 before you start infusing. Until you get to 900, pretty much everything will increase your power.

    For exotics and Year 1 stuff, if you really need to be higher-level for some activities, you can also pull them out of your collection. They'll be closer to your current level that way.

    Cool, that's what I was thinking anyway - that side of it doesn't seem to different to D1 in that regard.

    I've got my battle pass thingy up to 91 but still finding actually powering up to 950 a slog doing only the activities I enjoy. It says here my gear is at 924 + 13, I mistakenly thought pinnacle gear was rated at 950+ but it's not? I managed to blag a tier 3 item after doing that awful weekly forest event but didn't seem to get anything better than a regular item. Destiny 2 continues to confuse me. :confused:

    Seems like Pinnacle gear is no different from Powerful gear until you have reached 950.

    Still don't know how powerful gear tiers work, though.
