    I hate the warlock jump, its very counter intuitive from the normal video game jump. To gain max height, double tap quickly then continue to float along your path for a while, blink juts makes my head hurt so I never use that. Here's a good explanation:

    @StixxUK Warlock double jump is kind of annoying. I only tried it a few times back in D1 and it wasn't as good as my main. Titans get a much easier and more maneuverable boost jump.

    Anyway, you can probably get on top of the nearby silos first.

    Btw, I'm not sure you want to reach that lost sector just yet? I think Cosmodrome lost sectors require at least 1200 power or so.

    Everyone hates the Warlock jump but as a Warlock main since what must have been the D1 Alpha, I am a bit of a jumping god with strafe glide and the old Halo Bumper Jumper control scheme. I'm not one to brag about how great I am at games but I can land on a sixpence 99.9/100 times with my nimble little Exo. This is my legacy.

    Hunter jump is so much more forgiving, you even get shatterdive get out of jail free if you run out of jumps as well. Playing warlock, fall off a ledge and you're boned, all you can do is slow down your fall and consider that playing warlock was a bad move, and you never liked robes anyway.

    I'm also a jumping god with my Titan main since the D1 alpha, and I can also land on very small ledges with ease and yadda yadda, but I can also punch you while doing so. From the distance. With my Synthoceps, so I've already planted my knuckles on your face before you are even in range for your melee thing.

    Ehhh made the jump using a stationary upward burst followed by forward drift. Not sure if it was the technique, the type of jump or the gear but it worked.

    Lost sector was a piece of piss...

    They missed a trick having Dead Orbit and all that crap in the game. Factions would have survived if they were separated into jumps.

    Are we ever getting factions back? You know, if Bungie wanted an easy extra season while waiting for Witch-queen, they could just reintroduce faction rallies.

    It's one of the things I really miss. So many useless vendors they could have got rid of instead.

    Eh, to be fair, FWC was losing all the time anyway.

    Still worth it for that Sunshot catalyst.

    Managed to solo a Master sector today. It wasn't pretty, and I had to skip a couple champions near the end. No exotic drop, but I'm not exactly going to try again anytime soon.

    Also found something weird while scouring Nessus...

    You have maxed your ascendant shards? Give me a few then.

    Now that I've got past 1310, legendary lost sectors are pretty easy. I suppose I should grind the armor and gauntlets I'm still missing.

    Got plenty of space in my postmaster still. I try to stock up when double NF rewards are on if I can.

    The gap between Trials and GM rewards is pretty laughable at the minute. There's no balance at all towards PvE activities.

    I've done the GM 4 times, got 3 swarms and 0 mods. (And of course some prisms / shards / exotics.)

    The new Proving Grounds strike should be open to season pass owners. Hobo Edition players like me must wait until next week, when it enters the playlist and will be featured as Nightfall.

    Meanwhile, the Iron Banner is back! Can't wait to play a bunch of matches that always end with the mercy rule.

    On a side note, is there a new clan I could join? I noticed that the old Euroghosts clan is hemorraging members like crazy lately.

    New Strike was good, if a little on the short side and if I was to be nitpicky, I could tell straight away the boss room was a reskinned and slightly remodelled Calus fight room.

    This has hands down been the best non-expansion season though. The lore is finally showing rather than telling. It's been better than some full expansions for story content, its way more interesting than Beyond Light was for me. Hopefully this is a sign of things to come. It's reinvigorated the game.

    Fun strike that, boss kind of fell over in a strong breeze, but to be expected. The GM version could be tough, doesn't look like many cover spots.
    Also, the Moon lost sectors are horrible, servitor barrier champs protecting other champs, all hiding round corners.. am just not going to bother again.

    Yeah just wait for it to be cosmodrome sectors or europa ones.

    Also, did IB last night. A LOT of mercies. I had a 14/0, 10/0, 13/1 game back to back according to destiny tracker.

    Lots of mercy rules in the IB, yeah. I don't know what's up with that. I mostly lost, but even the few victories ended in mercy. Whatever skill based matchmaking algorithm they are using, it needs to be retuned.

    On the plus side, the drops aren't bad. I just spent a ton of glimmer and other resources to masterwork a couple new armor pieces, including some better Synthoceps. I hate that you need three ascendant shards for exotics.

    Managed to solo flawless Presage just now. While not the hardest mission in the world, it wasn't something I was consciously attempting to do so was quite chuffed when the triumph popped up.

    Stingy bastards could have given me a shader.

    @Malek86 I think it's a misprint, there's no SBMM in Iron Banner. Just luck of the draw.

    I spent 300 IB tokens last night and got fuck all worth using except maybe a steady hand, but I have one of those god rolled for pvp anyway.

    Didn't spend any tokens, just regular match drops and some Shaxx rewards. Got a 63 base Synthoceps, and then a 62 base IB helmet. Also got a 64 base helmet, but the other one had better stats for me.

    Now my stats are tier 4-4-7-7-5-8. I don't think it's gonna get much better than this. They are almost all just on the edge.

    The story is actually quite good this season.

    Also, this brilliant scene:
