    Yeah I think I did all of them - got another vendor and the Historian. I'll check again though, just in case.

    (and, actually, I'd bet I could just buy an epic from the vendor now I think about it)

    Agreed. Also after spending a good few hours with the game it totally reminds me of Greedfall, anyone else?

    I've done the volcano bit, so I'm now L12 WT6. Not seeing too many earth shaking mods, and haven't seen anything higher than a blue drop yet, despite being max WT for most of the time.

    COME ON, GAME! WHERE ARE MY EPIC LOOTZ?!
    My first purple dropped after finishing the next location, but I've picked up stronger blues again since then.

    Yeah never seen it. Me and Revenge have pretty much played as a duo all the way through. I have nearly two days of co op playtime registered and besides the regular Ďbooted to dashí Iíve not seen a major bug like that.

    Maybes. I wonder if it is related to matchmaking rather than an assembled party of friends? Often bugs are overstated on the internet as well. Iím sure it does happen but to what extent I donít know.

    Fun fact, if you don't mind a bit of grinding try a repeatable side quest in Stronghold called 'The Other Ingredient '. I was running it to farm titanium but also ended up with a dozen epics and a new world tier. You don't have to log out and back in, or let a mob kill you or any weird shit. Just play the quest, hand it in, talk to them again and you can replay it.

    Heh, just watched a review video that said that, as the game is at the moment, if you are planning on doing endgame content and are a devastator class, respec.

    The game has a heavy DPS focus anyway but without an enhanced bullet skill devastator builds just cant kill things fast enough to complete the challenges. I mean, its early days so this is quite a bold claim, but thats pretty shit if true.

    Sounds like everyone is having a blast with this.
    Anyone playing on PS5? Does it run ok on PS5. Found it for £46.85 at Base and quite tempted. Shame it's not on PC Game Pass tbh

    Unless the end game changes things up drastically, I think you'd get by without bullet skills. I'm lvl 28 at WT9 and haven't used the trickster bullet skill since I unlocked Borrowed Time.

    @neems
    Beast hunt farming is ridiculously quick and easy to do, but yeah, a little shady...

    I've been going with spinewretch in the ancient ruins. Just kill the first annoying flying thing (Strix?), kill the boss and then kill the last two flying things and die and you get anywhere from 2-4 epics and 20-30 titanium on WT10 (plus whatever titanium you get from dismantling)
    Takes much less than a minute for a run when you get it down.

    Working through WT at the moment and just playing repeatable beast hunts because you get a guaranteed legendary when you hand them all in (plus 20+ epics from drops and 10 from rewards)

    Borrowed Time, Hunt The Prey and Slow Trap.

    I've got gear that gives Borrowed Time about 1 minute of life, so pop that somewhere safe, warp into the middle of everyone with Hunt the Prey, go hog wild with an auto shotgun, pop Slow Trap if things get a bit hairy and then blink back to my start point before Borrowed Time runs out.

    Hmmm... I think, like most games like this its going to end up being a choice between fun and DPS. Like I said a few pages ago, I wasnt progressing through the WTs because I was trying to have fun doing it, but I re-specced all of my points into the top skill tree and focussed my build around twisted ammo and I started killing things literally twice as fast.

    Its not as fun but its a shitload more effective. What you describe is cool but you havent got any damage skills so things are going to take a lot longer to take down.

    I think a lot of the end game stuff revolves around killing stuff as fast as possible and sprinting through levels, which would be tough with that build.

    Never used bullet skills for my trickster generally - swap twisted in for blink for the big monsters on hunts only.

    My mains are blade, time bubble and blink or whatever they are called :D

    Oh swap in spinny blade thing for areas with lots of little monsters instead of blink

    Got an epic! \o/

    An auto rifle that has two mods, one of which is the lightning strike mod. Huzzah!

    Loving this game. I know there's an aspect of old-gen throwback here, but it feels entirely intentional and I'm actually loving it. The gunplay in a game hasn't grabbed me this quickly since Destiny, and the way things are mixed up by the skills is excellent.

    Clearly I'm internally adding giddy points for getting it on GamePass rather than handing over fifty sheets, but even so: love this game.

    Had an EXTREMELY bizarre difficulty spike when trying to clear the swamp to go to the quarry. Fuck me, some ridiculous spawning and a terrible new enemy the dragonfly that has a ranged attack and an close attack with insane range and a massive broodmother. Didn't enjoy that at all. Especially when you constantly get stuck on scenery.

    Yep, I did actually pay money for this. It runs fine on PS5 (60fps).

    Weird... Just played an expo with randoms, collected loot at the end and went back to camp and into the menu to dismantle blues and the game crashed. Loaded back in and the bulwark legendary dropped for me in camp.

    Do you get legendaries for going up CT or something? (which just happened)

    Also nearly shat myself at the beginning of the expo when my character loaded in without any gear on.

    Enjoying this so much on the One X tempted to buy it on PC or buy a Series X even.

    Game is good fun just a bit unstable at times on the One X.

    Lvl21 and just finishing up the forest area (I think). Looking forward to giving the multiplayer a go when the main story is done. Guess a few of you are the same and we should all mostly be starting end game at the same time.

    Been sticking to WT4 as seems the right balance to enjoy the story and only hit thr odd road block. WT5 is ok but every so often slow right down so figure work up the Tiers once story is done.

    @dfunked09

    Less than a minute sounds... useful, but I just don't like the whole letting them kill me thing. I guess if I'm at the start of a new world tier. I'll take a look anyway, ta.

    I did this today and the wall that Iíd hit for 3 levels has vanished. Iím eviscerating everything in my path agin, and sailing through WT6 again. Not the twisted ammo as Iím playing devastator but Iím now focused on damage with a power heal in the form of Gravity Leap and itís a breeze.

    With my Trickster (which is all I really know), it really is a fine balancing act of "if I stop killing I'll die" at a very high pace. If I go more defensive I struggle more as I cannot delete mobs quickly enough.

    Auto shotty to the face deletes those pesky Captains quick though. I've unlocked CT11 but (at least solo) run mostly CT9, for anything else I feel a bit squishy. Gear is unlocked up to 46 (and seems to go up a lot in armor & stats).
