    Yep, it has been absolutely excellent from a lore perspective. Finally seeing major things for ourselves rather than hidden away in lore tabs.

    Hope this is a new direction rather than an outlier.

    I find it weird that you need the season pass to see the cutscenes and lore bits. Fair enough, but if anything important actually happens (seems unlikely), people will find themselves at a loss when the next expansion starts.

    Stingy bastards could have given me a shader.
    I always seem to fuck up in the trash compactor or the jumping bit at the beginning, but sail through the rest of it with ease. Guarantee the time I manage to get past those I'll die to a screeb or something stupid like that.

    I usually just jump up and lay a Nova Bomb on the Screebs then mop up whatever transformers are left with my Fusion Rifle.

    TIL that bows can drop with Sympathetic Arsenal, and it actually works. Nice. I'm not usually a fan of bows, but I'll be keeping that Whispering Slab around.

    Anybody tried the shattered throne bounty glitch yet? Pick up and complete the weekly and daily challenges from Petra, then turn them in while you're in the shattered throne and you get encounter rewards (high stat rolled gear and unique perk DC weapons)

    @dfunked09 sounds nice, I'm gonna try that. I'm not a fan of the DC content but I could do with some high rolled or masterworked gear.

    Blind Well always seems to have people doing it, am never sure why, there's no weekly weapon like the Moon event?

    They reissued some DC weapons this season so you can farm them in there I think.

    Been playing D2 a bit on game pass, and am 1250 power light level or whatever they call it, brought the exotic weapon of xzur at the weekend, and claimed an exotic from amazon prime, could someone tell me if its possible to get exotic drops from playing the game casually like from public events or vanguard strikes? cant be bothered to to go hardcore with raids and nightfall's did all that with Destiny 1.

    Think Iíve got an exotic from a strike before.

    Tbh just buy a couple every now and then from Xur and the amazon freebies, plus the ones you get from quests, itís more than enough.

    I never play anything harder than the first level nightfall or battlegrounds and Iím about the same, power level 1286 (could make it slightly higher if I equipped my absolute top armour)

    They drop as engrams from anywhere on the odd occasion too.

    Yeah, plus you get a couple of freebie exoitics from the season pass (which is debatable value at this point in the season)

    I've had them drop from patrols a couple of times before.

    Just grab them from Xur and pick up the weekly quest from him if you haven't already as it lets you get specific weapons that aren't in the random drop pool (from the kiosk next to the vault in the tower)

    @THFourteen if you are up to 1286 consider trying the Hero Nightfall, it's not that hard and the rewards are better. Just make sure to equip the required mods.

    @Malek86

    Yeah I need to look into the mod thing, havenít worked it out yet so have avoided those for the time being.

    Altho yesterday I ended up playing the same battleground 3 times out of 4 so might be time for some variety.\

    Thanks for the exotic tips everyone above, think I will carry on playing Destiny 2 casually, quite enjoying the grind, and really like the weapon xur sold at the weekend, its a beast.

    The auto rifle? Yeah itís so much fun. Not sure itís that efficient but not having to worry about reloading is bizarre

    Powerful friends hasn't been available for ages, was a constant source of complaint. Definitely get it, aside from sharing CWL with your fireteam, you get +20 mobility with another arc mod equipped. Dragonfly has been more common, still useful if you're using anything with dragonfly perk though.

    I have both Radiant Light and Powerful Friends.

    Of course, none of my armor pieces are arc, and turning two of them now that they are masterworked will require two extra ascendant shards, a non-insignificant expense.

    Do I want to? What if they just nerf the mod eventually?

    Finished off the last of my gambit related seasonal challenge stuff last night, thank goodness. No gambit until next season! (hopefully)

    I've given up on Gambit before the season even started. DOn't think I've played a single game in the past three months!

    But isn't there one final week of challenges?

    I gave up on the challenges ages ago tbh. I've got more Bright Dust then I could ever dream of at this point so grinding some of the less attractive bounties doesn't exactly have a very enticing carrot at the end of it.

    This season has been fantastic but my playtime has gone down dramatically since the story stuff drew to a close. Hopefully the Guardian Games gives it a bit of a lift in these final weeks.

    Havenít played this for a couple of weeks now as my time has gone on outriders and monster Hunter rise.

    Enjoyed the 80 or so hours I plugged into it the last 2 months tho.

    But not sure Iím desperate to keep doing the strikes and battlegrounds forever more.

    Guardian Games were the grindiest of grinds, even by Destiny standards, so I wouldn't get my hopes up.

    I would like to grab the upcoming season pass, but the period between May and July is always when I'm at my busiest at work. It's unlikely that I'd be able to really take advantage of it. Maybe I'll buy the next one instead...

    PS. you can never have too much Bright Dust.

    You can when you've got to play Gambit!

    Tbh I'd normally not expect much from a season immediately following one like we are having. They generally follow great seasons like this with ones that are pretty skimpy on content. I'm expecting Vault of Glass to do a lot of the heavy lifting for the next one. Although it's still the best piece of Destiny content ever, so it's not a bad one to use for that.

    Yeah, I've pretty much stopped playing. Came back briefly to finish off the seasonal title as for some reason I thought it was going to be much tougher than it actually is, so didn't bother doing the weekly presage scannables.

    It's been a good season in fairness, but not enough to keep me coming back. I'll probably give GG a pass as there are only so many strikes you can run in a season and I think I've already hit that point.
