Monday Chat: September 29


It's Monday, so what did you get up to over the weekend? What games did you play.



It's been a pretty quiet weekend for us, apart from trying FIFA 15 and Smash Bros of course (review for latter coming soon). So what have you been up to? What games have you been playing?

Let's Chat!

Played some Hyrule Warriors, chipping away at Adventure mode trying to unlock everything, some of it is ridiculously tough though.

Didn't get any gaming done. But did get my Wii U out of self storage and plan on setting it up today. It's been in storage the last 2 weeks after moving house and into temporary accommodation.

TAVERNER.... I have a fix for you on Fifa 15 go into your internet router settings and turn of Upnp (unerversal plug and play) if you do this it will solve the lag issues so you can enjoy the game hope this helps.

Played a bit of Destiny and seemed to be just short of getting decent equipment was 1 strange coin away from buying some exotic gear from xur then got 3 last night after he had gone. Then finished the night about 150 Vangaurd level points away from level 2 so I can purchase some legendary gear. Still havent even finished the story yet need to get on to that.

I was exactly the same Bindiana, I needed 2 coins and got battered on the higher level weekly strike. I am lvl 25 and struggling to find enough iron. Will definitely be able to see what Xur has this weekend.

Dont seem to be very lucky with drops as well I am halfway through level 23 and only had 2 purple drops one turned into a legendary Machine gun which is not bad and the other turned into materials. Played a few vanguard strikes and ended up getting summoning pits on lots of occassions.

At least this week, the Engrams rules change. So Legendary gives Legendary+. I think the Cryptarch was either threatened with the sack or Lord Shaxx was going to batter him for being so tight ... lol.
Bindiana's avatar

Yeah seems to be very tight lol What day does the rules change did here they were changing the drops have to use any purples before as they will turn into blues.
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston's avatar
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston 2 years ago
Yeah, any 'current' purples will become blues (probably were anyway ... lol). What day exactly, don't know. All the patch notes said was this week. I think we should be able to buy materials as well as hunting for them. Only the common ones, not the Ascendants

Lately it feels like I've been level 25 forever on Destiny. When I complete Strikes I keep receiving rubbish gear. I did quite a few Queen missions but kept getting the Queen's guard hood given to me. I really need a good primary weapon now, as mine isn't dealing enough damage. I would prefer either a scout rifle or auto rifle as long as its powerful.
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston's avatar
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston 2 years ago
I keep getting body armour. I have a legendary Pulse Rifle, but I need to upgrade that

Cheers Dave. One question I have I am a warlock and have bonds know the other classes have different things do the different ones do anything. I now you can get some for the different clans but not much use to me as dont play the Crucible. Just wondered if they actually do anything see you can buy some from the speaker guy for motes of light just wondered if there worth it?
Zombieflamingo's avatar
Zombieflamingo 2 years ago
Not really Bindiana they are just decorative. Even if you dont do the crucible they might be worth getting as once you get them to level 3 and beyond you get a legendary item from them every time. Also for getting crucible marks without playing crucible you can trade spirit blooms and the likes to the crucible vendor for the marks. I got stuck at lvl 24 for ages until I could buy some armour. They are also going to start giving better rewards for the lvl 24 strike playlist as well. If you keep doing the bounties as well you will get exotic bounties which are quite time consuming.

The class items don't do anything they are purely visual. There was rumours (apparently off the record denied by Bungie) that the Speakers emblems may contain buffs as they all contain the word 'Blessing'. This would remain to be seen. I personally won't buy class items from the Speaker. Check out my Hunter cloak - Ghost Angel wings
Zombieflamingo's avatar
Zombieflamingo 2 years ago
It seems like a waste of motes of light to buy the class items from him especially when you can use them for an exotic engram from the weekend guy. Though both times I have done this I got Titan armour and I am a warlock.
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston's avatar
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston 2 years ago
The random class, lucky dip is one thing I really hate and think should be scrapped altogether. It serves no purpose. Even if you put it away, you can't use it till X lvl
Bindiana's avatar
Bindiana 2 years ago
Cheers guys did wonder have about 5 or 6 of them and couldnt really see any difference between them. that was slightly annoying this week not that I had enough but Xur had equipment for Titan and Hunter this week but nothing for warlock.
Zombieflamingo's avatar
Zombieflamingo 2 years ago
He had an exotic helmet for the warlock on the xbox one. I dont understand why we cant trade items. My brother who is a Titan has some warlock stuff so we should be able to trade them.
Zombieflamingo's avatar
Zombieflamingo 2 years ago
I suppose you could scrap it for the materials but that seems a waste of an exotic.

So far I have had two legendary engrams today and got legendaries both times, a shotgun and a pair of gloves.

been on destiny, doing loads of very hards solo, so coz ive upped the difficulty ive been rewarded, got an exotic pulse rifle, exotic chest plate, legendary armour all over and a legendary rocket launcher, still wanting an exotic auto or scout rifle, and a legendary sniper and fusion

Spear 25 2 years ago
@Jay by very hards solo, do you mean random missions and just upping the difficulty?
jay.hamilton's avatar
jay.hamilton 2 years ago
yep, today I did the weekly strike solo and completed it, with great care, keep doing things to level up, even when your passed level 20 you level up a mote of light instead but every time you would have earned a level, you earn a reward at postmaster instead, so I keep doing hard missions and every few days I get a legendary reward pack from postmaster, got 2 as a reward today, one had 3 ascendent energy in it, very rare, and the other the missile launcher ive wanted for ages, , just do anything with high XP a lot
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston's avatar
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston 2 years ago
Jay, you bought the chest armour. Doesn't count ... lol. And no I'm not bitter about you getting Red Death, honest!
jay.hamilton's avatar
jay.hamilton 2 years ago
Does Count as I had to kill about 5000 enemies to earn them coins, be assured when Xur comes back and you pick something up, you remember the blood spilled to get them coins

I don't mind a bit of a grind as a means to an end, but if it's all just grinding for the next item or weapon ad infinitum with no real pay off I don't think I'll bother.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 2 years ago
That whole aspect I don't care to much about. I just want to go exploring the maps with no real purpose in mind, then when it come to the grind for Light Lvls I'll just move on.
jay.hamilton's avatar
jay.hamilton 2 years ago
For me there is a means to an end, Raids, specifically the vault of glass, making sure im geared up, also as I purchased the limited edition I have the expansion pass, and im guessing that will have very high level content, im getting prepared now so I can take a break and play on other games ive got pre ordered then ill jump back on it in december

Traded Destiny in for £35 cash simply because the campaign, portal missions and strike missions where very repetitive, the entire campaign was just a grinding/farming **** fest and it was unbelievably tiresome but the PVP was alright with me and a mate constantly being in the top 2 on our team essentially carrying everyone all the time, it played very much like halo with the heavy and special ammo pickups basically giving everyone a reason to time and fight over the ammo to stop the other team from obtaining it which is way i found it incredible easy as it was so halo like, but playing on the same handful of maps for each playlist got really old after 2 weeks, i really wanted more team orientated playlists/game-types like capture the flag, oddball, king of the hill instead of playing TDM, Domination and Salvage over n over again which is way i traded it in and i am so glad i didn't buy the season pass edition which i nearly did but i choose not too as it was a new IP which i wasn't 100% sure about unlike Halo or Call of Duty.

No not at all Nox, played for 2-3 hours each day then turned it off, all in all i played Destiny for 1 day, 12 hours and 31 minutes, got to a level 26 warlock and spent 2/3's of my time on Destiny playing the PVP
