    Getting back into this now I'm done with Control and Demons for the moment.

    I take it its not worth leveling up weapons until im getting max level drops? Only just found out you can pay glimmer and shards to unlock perks on them!

    Also what's the deal with Xur these days, is he still around?
    Yeah save your upgrade modules until *at least* 1200, just use any shit until then. After that keep using any old armor that drops that's higher, and maybe occasionally infuse a gun here or there. At 1250 it's just pinnacles that'll bump you up so go nuts by then.

    @ozthegweat Maybe me being thick here, but if you are to the stage where you need to equip 4 pieces, you must of already done the sabatoge quest where the reward is cryo armour drops off the first public heroic of the day?

    @Duffking cool, getting closer to 1200 incrementally.

    Just finished the main Forsaken Campaign which was good fun. I know the rewards aren't worth it but good to play through it all.

    Surprisingly, blue items don't have a power cap, so you should still increase your level to 1200 even if you play through all the old story missions.

    Yeah I've noticed that! Purple drops as well. Just the rewards themselves seem capped.

    Yeah think I'm around that. Forgot just how satisfying the gameplay is in Destiny.

    Yeah, I definitely wouldn't still be playing if popping a Dreg's head didn't feel so damn satisfying. Gunplay is just perfect imo, it's often quite jarring playing any other FPS.

    @wuntyate you can immediately tell if an item is capped at 1060, because they have a grey icon on the corner.

    I think one of the latest patches removed all sunset items from world drops, so you can only ever get 1060 items as rewards for old quests and activities now.

    Thanks, yeah that's another source for crystocrene armour. I started doing that a few days ago. So far I have only received pieces for slots I already have a piece, but no gloves or bonds yet.

    What is this quest that requires four pieces of armour anyway?

    @ozthegweat have you had them ever? Check your collections. If you've never had them they won't drop randomly. You'd need to do the europa armor quests first to get them once. Otherwise they should drop eventually.

    Yes I have them all unlocked (Europa Arms/Legs etc. quests).

    And another chest. I'm not blessed by RNGsus right now.

    The quests from Variks to unlock various perks.

    So one of the rewards for Hero level Empire Hunts is a "high-stats armour". After six runs, I got a 56 chest piece. I dunno, I don't consider 56 to be high stats, but maybe I just have different standards from Bungie.

    Yeah "high stat" armor was bs from the prismatic recaster too. For me I just junk anything that's not at least +15 in two stats and over 60 total.

    Bungie concedes defeat and triples Dawning Spirit rewards from all sources for the rest of the event.

    I guess the community must have got tired of grinding, because this is the second time Bungie had to nerf the requirements for an event.

    Yeah once you've done the triumphs you might as well just bake shit for tess and ignore everything else.

    A nice Avalanche roll would be another reason. I've received one with Dragonfly, which is quite fun. Still looking for something to replace my trusty Hammerhead.

    Also: I finally got a Crystocrene bond, so did an Empire hunt to complete the objectives. Only after I finished it I saw that I forgot to equip the armour pieces *facepalm*

    Seraph SAW is nice enough, but I find myself not using heavy machine guns much lately. The underappreciated Leviatan's Breath wrecks everyone in PvP and you can use it for unstoppable champions too.

    I also found a pretty decent Royal Chase scout rifle, except I can't even remember where it dropped. Looks like a seasonal item, but I don't have the season pass.

    Overall, I must admit that the sunset has indeed forced me to switch up my arsenal a bit, which is not as bad as I feared. I do wish it hadn't happened to armor though, because what's the point?

    Is all this dreaming city stuff part of the forsaken expansion as well? I thought I was done but there's tons more!

    @Malek86
    I think Royal Chase is one of the lure rewards.

    I still seem to be using witherhoard, Ikelos SMG and falling guillotine most of the time. Sometimes switch up the heavy with the empire hunt HMG or interference GL, and sometimes mix it up a bit with cloudstrike or izanagi in the first slots.

    I'd probably be a bit more varied if I was playing PVP at all I guess.

    @wuntyate
    Yeah, that was a pretty epic extra at the time, especially if you'd managed to avoid spoilers. You didn't even unlock it as a patrol zone until you'd finished the baron hunts.

    I had a bug when handing stuff in to her, you could give her a single gift then it opened the eververse inventory so I had to close the menu and start again for every gift.

    Annoyingly Riven is the only one that I have enough of both materials to bake loads of gifts for, but I can't be arsed entering the wish

    Giving cookies to Tess is a pain because of that inventory bug. Just give them to Zavala or something. The guy looks like he could use a hug ever since we started tapping into the Darkness (Saladin is even crankier, maybe that's why we can't give him any cookies).

    I don't often think about the lore in Destiny (it's really mostly fanfic-level material), but I must say that they haven't done a good job of selling this season's plot twists to me. We have to use the Darkness because... we have to? I mean, it's not like I actually need it in game, but everyone speaks as if we have no hope without it... and why, exactly? We never got any real explanation other than "because our enemies will use it against us", which isn't much of an excuse when we can already shoot lightning like Palpatine.

    @dfunked09 it's quite a place. As is usual for Destiny it looks stunning. Looks like I have two quests to do here initially. Going to plough on before I move on to Shadowkeep.

    That's the best thing about not playing it for a year or so, there's so much new shit to see.

    Funnily enough I did the same with D1. Played the base game then jumped back in after Rise of Iron.

    @wuntyate when was the last time you played? If you missed the Forges and the Menagerie, you missed out imho.

    I especially don't get why they removed the Forges, seeing as they were all on the EDZ or Nessus already. They could have just upgraded the drops to the new power cap, and that would have given people one more source of focused grinding.
