Story
Epic Campaign
Destiny features a rich, cinematic story, centered on your quest to discover and explore the remains of humanity’s Golden Age. As a Guardian, you must venture beyond our walls, into a wild and dangerous frontier, and take the fight to ancient evil forces hell bent on our destruction.

Story

Our Golden Age
Everything changed with the arrival of the Traveler. Long ago, it breathed new life into our system. Rain washed over Mars. Fresh air cleansed the skies over Venus. Soon after, humanity raced into the black, and colonized these newly remade worlds. It was a time of miracles – a great Golden Age.

Hope In The Darkness
t did not last. The Traveler had an ancient enemy. A powerful darkness that found us here on Earth, and nearly destroyed us. No one knows exactly what happened in those final moments, but we know this: we survived, and we owe our lives to the Traveler.

We Rise Again
In our darkest days, Humans, Exos, and Awoken found the Traveler where it made its last stand, low above Earth, silent and immobile. We built the City – our last – within its protective veil, fighting countless wars to keep its peace. From that dark age, Guardians were born.

The New Frontier
Now, a new era has begun, and the only hope for our future lies in unlocking the greatest mysteries of our past. You are a Guardian of the last safe city on Earth, able to wield some of the Traveler's incredible power. You are taking this mantle just as a new day dawns. Titans, Hunters, and Warlocks have finally returned to our long-lost worlds, only to find out we are not alone.
Defend the last safe City on Earth. Defeat our enemies. Explore the ancient ruins of our solar system. Discover all that we have lost.
Become legend.

Destinations

Earth
Our home. After the Darkness swept over us, we found the Traveler where it made its last stand. Beneath, we built The City – our last – within its protective aura. From here, Guardians stand watch, defend our civilization, and strike out into the wild frontiers of Earth – and beyond – to reclaim our lost worlds.

Moon
Like Earth, the ruins of humanity's former glory can be found scattered across the familiar lunar surface. Recent exploration attempts have been repulsed, reporting increased enemy activity, and even strange tectonic phenomenon. The City has since classified the Moon as a "Forbidden Zone,” open only to our most brave and experienced Guardians.

Venus
Venus was once the site of great discovery – a paradise. Now, it is a monument to all that we have lost. The old stories say we built an academy dedicated to learning and research on the shore of a wondrous sea, and that the waters themselves boiled and rose up to shatter the coast, washing away all that we had built.

Mars
What little we know of Mars may as well be a myth. We built a massive metropolis in the red dust. The Darkness swept nearly all of it away; the sand itself claimed the rest. No one knows what remains of our lost age, now buried beneath the dunes.

Guardians

General Information
Destiny will center on the journey of the Guardians, the last defenders of humanity, set to protect Earth's last city. Guardians will be divided into three distinct races: Humans, Awoken, and Exo. Humans are described as being relatable, tough, and uncomplicated. Bungie drew its inspiration for the Human race from the military, and the character designs and aesthetics of the Spartans present in their Halo franchise. Awoken, described as exotic, beautiful, and mysterious, were inspired by fictional depictions of elves, vampires, ghosts, and angels. Exo are described as being sinister, powerful, and tireless. Exo were inspired by the undead, Halo's Master Chief, and the titular character of The Terminator The playable races will be purely cosmetic and will have no effect on the game mechanics of Destiny.

Players will also be able to choose a "class" to go alongside their race. There are three classes available to players in Destiny: Hunters, Warlocks, and Titans. Hunters are a reconnaissance-based class meant to be reminiscent of the classic "bounty hunter." Bungie cites as influences Star Wars's Han Solo and classic characters from old Western films such as Clint Eastwood's Man with No Name. Warlocks combine weapons with special powers from "the Traveler," and are meant to be a form of "space wizard." The Warlock class is influenced by the Star Wars series' Jedi Knights, The Lord of the Rings series' Gandalf, and The Matrix series' Morpheus. Titans, which favor heavy weapons and melee attacks and are intended to be reminiscent of the classic "future soldier," were inspired by Bungie's own Master Chief from Halo, Stormtroopers from Star Wars, and other "space marines" from science fiction. The players will be accompanied by Ghosts, a robot AI voiced by Peter Dinklage.

Titan
Armored Engine Of War
Their lightning-charged fists will knock you off your feet. Their armor and shields make them nearly invincible. We like to think they are our faceless knights, protecting us from our countless enemies. But their power and resolve gives them the air of rising gods.

Warlock
Wielder Of Arcane Power
They’ve found a way to weaponize their curiosity, harnessing the Traveler’s light in patterns never before imagined. Warlocks are not passive scholars of the unknown. These are mystic warriors, capable of incredible acts of devastation.

Hunter
Master Of The Frontier
Quick on the trigger and deadly with a blade, Hunters stalk battlefields as if they were hunting prey. Cunning and ruthless, they prize the undiscovered and prepare for the unexpected, channeling their powers by intuition and gut instinct.

Enemies

Fallen
Fallen are hardy creatures who can survive in a wide range of environments without heavy armor or complex modifications to their physiology. They travel light, hit hard, and are gone before you know it. Fallen may look like mere scavengers, but on closer inspection you will see hints of a splendid, sophisticated past, and the proud markings of their ancestral "Houses."

Hive
Hive manipulate the physical world in ways that we can only begin to imagine. The Hive have carved a kingdom deep into the lifeless core of the Moon, and it is there they remain, silent and buried among many dark and terrible secrets, a reminder of the tremendous power that brought forth the Collapse.

Vex
Scattered reports indicate that the Vex appear to be mass-produced machine units, constructed of an unknown metal alloy resembling hammered brass. All attempts to communicate with them have failed. They are hostile. They are unrelenting. They are deadly.

Cabal
Few Guardians have faced Cabal and lived to tell the tale. They are a professional military operation. On every front we have found them on the march, they have already dug in and ringed their installations with razor wire. Now, it seems they've turned their eyes towards us.

Weekly Update 08.01.14

This week at Bungie, we put the Destiny Beta into millions of players’ hands.
No easy feat. You all kicked mountains of ass. While you battled aliens and each other, we learned a lot about how things work behind the scenes. We discovered even more by watching you fight and win and die and revive.
Now that it’s over, we’re having a blast all over again as you all try to tell your war stories in the loudest voice. The Destiny community has changed. You’ve seen some things. What’s been seen cannot be unseen.
The Beta was like a blizzard of data. As we dig ourselves out from underneath the numbers, we’re finding a few you might like. We know you hunger for stats. A lot of you mined them from the Destiny Companion. Here’s a post-game carnage report we can all click and enjoy:
(http://i1.wp.com/destinynews.net/wp-content/uploads/2014/08/beta_infographic_blog.jpg?resize=574%2C1452)
Our favorite achievement is the concurrency statistic. At its peak, the Destiny Beta became the most simultaneously played Bungie game of all time. There were more people online at the same time to play Destiny than any other game in our history. The Beta was more played than even final versions of previous Bungie games. You joined forces to populate the last safe city on Earth, and blew our minds.
This test was huge for us. In the final hours of our grand experiment, we put you to the real test. We knocked you down, but you got up again. We shrank the pool of available servers. We kicked you into orbit, applied patches to your ships, and watched as you descended to fight and dance and rage. Again. There was no stopping you. In the end, we had to kick the plug out of the wall.
We’re running out of ways to thank you for what the Beta has meant to us. We hope you had fun. Destiny will be a better game because you played it. Perhaps that’s the best gesture we can manage – to deliver a game that’s better than it was before your contribution.
Time will tell. Not much time, either. Today is the first day of August. Start the countdown on your last month of waiting. Next month, we’ll all start playing Destiny for real. You might even think you’re ready.
You’re not. (wink)

Where’d you get that

We’re already starting to hear that question being asked. One Guardian to another, people want to know where to dig the gold out of our brave new world. Everything worth having, from the guns in your grip to the armor on your back, will be tied to the action that you survive. When your friends ask where you got yours, you’ll have amazing stories to tell. Maybe you’ll even relive them through their fresh eyes.
Here’s a great story – and it cannot be relived or shared. If you played in the Beta, we’re equipping you with proof. It’ll be something that people won’t be able to mimic or obtain. It happened, or it didn’t. If you put your boots on the ground in the Destiny Beta, a launch emblem will be waiting for you in September.
(http://i2.wp.com/destinynews.net/wp-content/uploads/2014/08/stress-participation-emblem.png?resize=574%2C96)
With this emblem, we lured you to the July 26th rally. We needed to fill up our servers; see if you could break our backbone. You showed up to help us set our new record for concurrency. Now that we’ve seen how our new tech responds to a heavy load, we’re a lot more prepared for launch day.
(http://i1.wp.com/destinynews.net/wp-content/uploads/2014/08/beta_all_emblem.png?resize=574%2C96)
This emblem is for everyone who played, or wrestled the centipede and lost. Every moment of the Beta was important. Every tester was worthy of celebration and decoration. Polish it up and pin it to the upper right corner of your screen. Like all the best things in Destiny, you earned it.
You’ll be the envy of the people you meet in orbit. They’ll wonder where that came from. Feel free to tell them: “I played in the Beta. I helped Bungie make this game. I was there before Destiny was cool. Where were you?”
Oh, man. They’re gonna be jealous as their jump drives kick in.

Bungie Weekly Update - 08/08/2014

This week at Bungie, I’m packing my bags. You will never see this face again.
(http://static01.bungie.net/pubassets/26305/beta_warlock_01.jpg?cv=3983588676&av=467297811)
There is one question you’ve all been asking since the Destiny Beta went offline. We’ve heard you. It’s time to issue an official response. Before we get down to business, indulge me as I cast my own loving look back. There’s something I have to say to my dashing defender of the last safe city on Earth.
Hey, handsome. Miss you. We had a lot of fun together, didn’t we?
You were bold. Even in the darkest corners of Old Russia, your eyes burned with the same purple intensity that sent so many of your enemies into the Void.
You stood fast in the face of danger. Hive Ogres shook the ground beneath your feet.  The Lord of the Iron Banner put your skills to the test. Yet, after every mission, you returned triumphantly to the Tower.  Humanity had nothing to fear – not on your watch.
You were brave.
And now, you are gone.
You and millions of Guardians just like you. You helped us build a better world – all of you. But as great as that place has become, it’s a place that wouldn’t make sense to you anymore. Too much has changed.
I’ll remember you, and millions of Guardians like you, for the things you taught us. Thank you for letting us learn from your adventures. We promise your sacrifice will not be in vain.
See you starside.
(http://static01.bungie.net/pubassets/26305/beta_warlock_02.jpg?cv=3983588676&av=467297811)
If the rest of you haven’t gathered the painful truth from the eulogy yet, our Beta characters won’t transfer to the final version of Destiny. The vaults have been cleaned out, too.
Step away from this update and take a walk. Have a good cry, or howl at the Moon. We’ll be here when you’re done…
Welcome back.
What you just experienced is something we’ve been through countless times here at Bungie. We feel your pain, and then some. Making a game requires iteration and progress. When we reinvent the world where the Guardians live, sometimes we have to leave them behind.
Tyson Green is a Bungie designer who thinks long and hard about character ownership. He’s said goodbye to hundreds of Guardians throughout the pursuit of Destiny, and dozens of those warriors had evolved well past Level 8. He’s not the reason why your character is gone, but Tyson can explain why our Guardians won’t accompany us on launch day:
Since the Beta, we’ve continued to tune and adjust the game. The way you earn experience has been adjusted up and down a bunch of times. Items have been added and removed. New features toggled. Although there’s no single monumental change, the sum of the tweaks leaves characters from the Beta Build in strange shape that would be confusing at best, broken at worst.
We’ve been asked many times if this was a real Beta. It was. We learned a lot from your participation, and we’re going to tweak, adjust, and in some cases, make some significant alterations that ultimately mean your Beta Guardian can’t go home again.
This is the last time we’ll ask you to part with your hero. On September 9th, you can create a Guardian who will keep you company for a good, long time. On a long-enough timeline, you might decide to delete him or her and start over again – but that will be your call to make.
There are other worlds than these…
If you’re still smarting about the loss of your Beta Guardian, we’re here for you. Everyone in the studio is here for you, in fact. This week, for perhaps the final time, we “wiped” all the brave heroes that lived in the full build of Destiny. The usual funeral pyre of final screenshots was gathered and set alight.
Matt Bennier is a Senior Artist at Bungie. His exotic protector of humanity struck a final pose in our inbox that began the parade of commemoration and remembrance. Anyone out there still think that Warlocks aren’t frabjous enough?
(http://static01.bungie.net/pubassets/26305/warlock_exotic_blog.jpg?cv=3983588676&av=467297811)
Grab your Destiny Companion. Look at your Guardian. Now look at Matt’s. Now back to your Guardian. Now back to his. Despite your brave service and fantastic exploits in the Beta, it was only your first step into the wider world of Destiny. A small (yet record breaking) percentage of you barely even ventured to the Moon. There is so much left to do – so much left to earn and master.
Right now, you’re lamenting the loss of your starter gear, those pearls of mayhem of destruction that you carved from the wastes of Old Russia. Look beyond that horizon. We have exotic arms and armaments secreted away – adventures you can barely imagine right now.
In time.

I love the game itself so far but I have gone playing quite a few hours without any social interactions with anyone via voice chat. And rarely do I see others roaming the world (with the exception of in the Tower). Just makes it all kind of... empty.

But Destiny is definitely a wonderful game. Bungie seems to be living up to my high expectations.

Love the campaign type of deal, although the story kinda repetitive,
But love the menu's/weapon classes

Not a fan of the match making, crazy unbalanced,  someone can have a weapon that does 100+ damage and go again someone that does 10.

I have mixed opinions about this game after playing a good amount of time on all the content that they've given on the Beta. The things I'd like to see improve are:

1. Holding down buttons for either continuing, leaving missions etc. take to long, the amount of time needs to be reduced.

2. The Crucible needs a lot of work to keep this mode balanced and enjoyable for me at least. You can get cheap deaths and it feels who ever plays the game the most to get the better gear will win the majority of the fights, or who ever has the grenade or special charge available.

3. The campaign was great at first, but than felt a little repetitive after seeing how you're going through the same building and such for different missions. I know there'll be different planets in the retail version, but a change of scenery in a planet and missions in different locations around the planet would be great.

4. The fire team size of 3 is too small for someone who plays with friends of another 3 players, seeing we're having to be in a group of 2 or someone gets left out. I understand they might not want to make it easy, but from what I heard, Defiance had it as the more players the enemies were tougher which I'd like to see. Having it as an MMO really feels the lack of social between friends.

Trading with other players will be enabled sometime after the game has been launched which I'd like to see.

There may be a bit more but those are the complaints that stood out to me.

Agree

I know there'll be different planets in the retail version, but a change of scenery in a planet and missions in different locations around the planet would be great.
Agree. I've only played it for 3 or 4 hours and I'm bored already. Same enemies, same buildings, same map.

Another problem I have is I seem to have reached a point where I cannot continue the campaign unless I play an online coop mission. Very bad, not only was there nobody around to do it with me, but why should I have to? Hiccups like this cause players to put the game down and not come back.

When solo the buttons do not need to be held down as long but when with a fireteam it takes so long to go into orbit because it is warning other players that they are about to leave. but i do agree it should be shortened a little

When you go onto a friends stats it says "fireteam 1/6" suggesting that in the retail version their will be missions that will allow fireteams of 6
Trading with other players will be enabled sometime after the game has been launched which I'd like to see.
I heard that you can already trade someway with the volts but im not sure if that was true or not. Also trading seams like if it isnt capped then destiny will be ruined fast, it is one of those games where weapon stats can be altered and every weapon looks differant and works differant, i think eventually modded weapons will begin to appear and if traded everyone will eventually have a modded weapon. Take borderlands for instance that was ruined with mods.

I tried 4 times to play in lobbies with randoms on the co-op mission... but was forced to quit because of my teammates inability to work together.

If there was a built in chat system that could be toggled or SOMETHING maybe I would be able to find some decent players... but as it is right now I'm stuck at an impass.

Its sad to see such a great game fail at such basic game mechanics.

i think a phantasy star online type thing would be nice, having a keyboard or a chatpad you could type things to appear above your head for other players to read it also gives a much more fantasy feel to the game... well in my opinion any way it would give good ol' memories from phantasy star XD

remember that in the retail version you will be able to go through so many missions solo before they get to hard but then you could go to another place such as the moon and do them missions till the point that you get stuck then you will be a high enough level to go back to earth and do them missions and so on. I guess it could work like that to try and encourage players to explore.

On the 360, go to the games tab, press "Search Games", search for "Destiny", click "Destiny Beta" and than download it. I'm sure there'll be a simpler way to download it soon.

For Xbox One go to Store>Games>New Releases and there'll be Destiny Beta to download.

PS3 and PS4 I am unaware of how to download the beta.

It's not about the mission being to hard for one person, it's that bungie have forced you to do this online co-op mission in order to continue, all following missions are disabled until this one is done.

Lots of MMOs do this to introduce the concept of "dungeon raiding" (i.e. needing a dedicated healer, dedicated tank, damage dealer, black mage.) The mission requires you to have multiple people to start quest, and it's a main story line. Cannot continue without completing it.

This is useful for MMOs, as it teaches one how to go about dungeon raiding, but I don't know how useful it is in Destiny.
Note that as of this post, I have not tried the beta. However, I can assume that there are no dedicated healers/black mages/tanks that solely perform those specific roles.

Without specific dedicated roles, I don't see the need to force players to work together on a mission.

That was another complaint of mine. With my experience of the beta, there seems to be no difference between the classes other than HOW they deal dps. This is extremely dissapointing, as I was hoping that similar to other MMO's (and Borderlands) there would be more variety between the classes. Ie. definable jobs or duties that would be expected of each (Dps, healing, tanking, etc.)

the classes are pretty balanced out the only differances are armour and a few spells that all deal damage

In my mind, it's crazy to stop a gamer from continuing on their single player campaign because the gamer can't find other gamers online to help them continue their single player campaign. Sure no problem if its a side quest or optional, but to force a player to have to do something that actually stops them from being able to play the game is crazy. And I wouldn't consider Destiny an MMO. At it's core, it's still a single player FPS, just with excellent seamless online features. I think they're stretching it a bit to call it an MMO? Or am I not understanding what this game is?

I meant it more as comparing the quest requirements of Destiny to MMOs. Not necessarily calling Destiny an MMO.
From what I gathered in the year since Bungie's announcement of the game till now, I thought of it more like a "social FPS", in which your smartphone can be used to customize your character, accept missions on-the-go, connect with friends and view stats, etc. The game was going beyond the console to make it more of a social multiplayer experience.

However I dont know if any of these features are still included with the game.

In my mind, it's crazy to stop a gamer from continuing on their single player campaign because the gamer can't find other gamers online to help them continue their single player campaign. Sure no problem if its a side quest or optional, but to force a player to have to do something that actually stops them from being able to play the game is crazy.

This is probably why it works so well for a real MMO.
In a PC MMO, you will always have hundreds, if not thousands, needing to complete these required co-op missions to progress. If you didnt already have a buddy, chances are several players are waiting out in the lobby for randoms to join in. That and all of the dungeon raids afterwards are optional; The only required one is to teach you like a tutorial.

Yep, but it's still a risky undertaking by the developers. Some time zones always struggle to find other gamers no matter how popular the MMO is. Just doesn't make sense to halt the main quest/mission path to me.

Been playing it for hours now, took no longer than an hour or so to download. Already maxed out my Beta level playing each and every mission I could. I do NO like anything from Bungie, I don't like ANY Modern Warfare games...but this popular unreleased game...it got me. I got HOOKED! I love the nice customizing for your character, the race choices, designs for the face. I also love the 'class' options. It's a fun game, loved playing with others as well, which is rare for me. ESPECIALLY on these types of games. I'm used to people running around blowing each others heads off. Definitely recommend this game to anyone. And it's not even out for consoles yet. :P

No once you do the level 5 mission you can go to the moon and keep leveling and doing the story solo once the full game is released, even if you do devils lair now in BETA you still cant go to the moon, this is why the devils lair (co-op only mission) Is a level 6 mission and the starter moon mission is also level 6 so its optional and you really don't need to do it if you don't want too...

So far I'm loving every bit of it. We spent hours yesterday running around and killing to get some loot. Never got tired of it. The enemies are just fun to kill.

Been trying to max out my abilities. Reaching the level cap was one thing but the abilities are a whole other story. These things take forever to level up.

I have 3 maxed out weapons that I've taken a liking too. Still trying to get that last piece of armor to complete my set. Also trying to find an uncommon sniper rifle. No luck so far. Hopefully will get one today.

Randomly dropped.

Encrypted gear is also leveled based on your level when you unlock it. So if you find it at level 1 and wait till you are level 8 to open it you will get level 8 gear.

If we don't keep them, it doesn't bother me really. I found the joy in the game, was working my ass off (sometimes with other folks) to get that next level, that next area, that next upgrade for my gun. I wouldn't mind a head start, but would much prefer to start over. That's just me though. :3 Either option would make me happy, I am easy to please. lol

From Bungie Weekly Update:

Quote
Our hope is that every moment of the Destiny Beta has been meaningful to you. For us, tomorrow is the most important moment for this test. Every single Guardian that can play is invited to a Public Event. Our shared mission will be to see how many of us can play at the same time. Only through our combined strength can we achieve victory.

Saturday, July 26th at 2:00 PM PDT.

You will need to be very brave (and perhaps a bit patient) to help us reach our goal. To help you stay focused on our objectives, we’ve given you one of your own. Everyone who makes an appearance will earn a nameplate to help you prove that you were there when the record for concurrent players was set before the launch of the game. It will help you to be a rare and unique snowflake when Destiny launches in September.

(http://static01.bungie.net/pubassets/26123/stress-participation-emblem.png?cv=3983588666&av=1890151607)

This is a flash mob. Set your destination. The Iron Banner will be live. The Director will still beckon with the lures we’ve littered all across Old Russia.

We’re even sending you on a new story mission. For this one, you’ll be glad you scrounged that jump drive from the wastes of the Cosmodrome. You don’t need us to tell you where you’re headed. We’ve marked it on the map since the moment when the Beta Build became a secret whispered about by only our friends and family. This new destination will be open to you for two hours.

The Destiny Beta is not a private party. It’s the precursor to the launch of the most ambitious game we’ve ever made. You are invited to do your very best to emulate the final form of the citizenry that will fight to protect the last safe city on Earth, later on this year.

Eyes up, Guardians.

http://www.bungie.net/7_Bungie-Weekly-Update---07252014/en/News/News?aid=11963 If you wish to read the whole Bungie Weekly Update.

In short, Ocean of Storms, Moon mission will be available tomorrow at 2PM PDT just for 2 hours to stress test. This is the event which Bungie has said will reward players for at playing at that time.

Unfortunately, if they had it on for longer or spaced it out the day not many people would be playing one mission at the same time so they wouldn't be able to get the stress test they wanted. I understand why they would do it, but unfortunately some people may not get the opportunity due to work, school, sleep etc.

Honestly, why did they waste their resources and our time with the beta codes when they planned to open it up all along. Seems kinda cynical to me.

I thought about this earlier today and totally agree. I also dislike how they advertise the beta as an invite only be pre-ordering the game. I would've preferred if they advertised the beta as "Pre-Order Destiny for early access to the Beta!" but instead they make it sound like it wont go public.

For me the event is at 2.... and I have to get to work by 4.... which means I will probably have to stop playing around 3. If I just hop on and play for an hour will I still get the limited edition thing? Does anyone know?

Yes. Bungie has stated that all you have to do is show up sometime while the event is in effect. That means either play the game, mission or simply show up in the tower and you will get your emblem. 1 hour is plenty time to play the new mission though I'm assuming. :)

Hey man, it's just a beta. :D Even if they gave more, we would still WANT MORE. Human error, downfall of us all. lol I think the point was, to open an area that will be within the game.

Yeah i understand that its just a beta I have actually changed my mind about that mission but only because you can go away from it and free rome ;) but i still think it was a bit short and not being able to play that new gamemode was a bit of a downside but oh well, nothing that stops me from buying the full game :P

No idea, but I noticed that to. Might just be a way to get us drooling over that equipment we can't get yet. But I am sure the levels may go higher than 20. :D

Max lvl is going to be 20. Progression after that will happen through the gear you get rather than actual leveling.

I found that info on the Destiny subreddit. It had a link to the Destiny daily update thing that they had going for a while.

I dont mind there being a level cap as long as theres plenty of loot to get even after I hit twenty. And the level jump from 8 to 9 seems to be insanely slow...

Post by: Jack Of Shades on July 27, 2014, 04:48:54 AM
I suppose, I just hope this works out as far as the upgrades and sub-classes you can get. But yeah, I'm hoping for more loot even after the max level. Because if the equipment is how you get stronger after level 20, we can only hope for better weapons and armor at max level. Otherwise, I'd hope for DLC or updates to include a higher leveling cap. :D

DLC is nice, but it should be optional, not necessary.

And leveling doesnt have any real impact on your character other than what you can equip. All the "skills" are unlocked individually.

I was figuring, with DLC you could attain BETTER equipment at higher levels. Giving a reason for added higher levels to begin with. Maybe bonus missions or planets, although this is too early for that kind of talk. :D lol

With use, yeah. Minus the Grenade skill unlocked at level 2 in the Beta. I don't know, the leveling system has always been something I enjoy with high levels. But, this may be different and interesting. Only having 20 levels to get through before maxing a character out.

grrr server hate me so I am here spreading my nonsense XD ^_^

for sure my fav class is hunter. I don't care to be  tank like tiaitn, and I don't even see the need for voidcaster class. unless I am missing something neat they can do.

I couldent sleep last night so I spent  little time just messing around in the lv 4 explore area. did a mini mission or 2. terrible exp so its almost not worth doing.

anywho, playing solo this game is such a wildly different beast. I found my self using as much stealth as I could and using my sniper rifle as much as I could as well (it sooooo need more ammo cap). tho it was a lot of fun to sneak my way (and yes stealth aculty works in this game, back stabing is hilaurues fun as a hunter, was able to take out a room full of enemys with it, glad stealth is a ligitmunt tactice in this game instead of a gimmick) and make my way to a sniper spot (love hunters jumping and speed), and just wreck havic on the enemy, again same about the very low sniper rifle max ammo.

eveuntly I went and did a mission I had already doen before, I think it was the lv 5 story mission (am lv 7 now). was doingit solo and it was not super easy surpsingly. this game really is ment for 2+ people.

anywho to my surprise an event happened right near me, so I ran over to it and started it (as I was the only one there at the time). it was a defned mission. so I defned the spot for a while, was easy at first, then it got insane. I started tio run into multy purple balls and multy knights that where lv 6-7. luckly a group of other players showed up, 4-5 people lv 8. again it became easy, then it all hit the fan, we started to face silly amounts of yellow bar enemys all lv 8-9. we started to get lsughtered. luckly we abused the respawn and just barly made it threw. got 3 gold stars and a huge chunck of exp and some green items.

just it was muts that it took that many of us at near/the max lv to win it in a lv 5 area. XD

I do very much love this game tho but its a lot more fun with friends ^_^

idk i saw maybe 3-4 factions to join, theres no way to tell how long its gona take to get threw them untill we play the full game. ether way i cant wait to play.

o now that i think of it, the graphics on the 360 version were terrable. perticulery draw distiance. there would be times i would see enemys in the distance. then i would zoom in and there woukld be objects liek boxes or what not in the way that the game diudnt draw yet till i zoomed in..............i get its a wombo sized game, but thats just silly to have on the 360 version.

I thought they were pretty good considering how weak the 360 hardware is compared to next gen. The draw distance optimizations would have been necessary, not silly.

I agree, I had no problem with it to, I don't care much for keeping up with Next Gen. I stay with what is affordable, and what I like. Just don't see myself going out and blowing $300 on a system for one or two games that I enjoy. Which will most likely end up on 360 anyway, as not EVERYONE has turned over to next gen. Maybe when it goes down to $200, i'll consider it. But Destiny looks great on 360 in my opinion. Can't wait till September.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VUNr-S0LZ5c @1:56 He does talk about level 20 in the video, may be worth watching.

Now from what I've read from someone but I haven't seen it from Bungie themselves so I can't say if this is 100% true but he claims:

Quote
level 20 is the level at which you stop gaining xp simply from killing mobs. To go beyond level 20 you collect a substance from the cryptarc to gain more levels. That's why we've seen images of level 28 and 29 characters.
http://www.reddit.com/r/DestinyTheGame/comments/2b3z55/psa_the_final_level_cap_is_not_20_stop_freaking/

my issues isisint so much the low lv cap, its that we will hit it very fast, with out evn trying i shot up in lvs very quick, had i alty bothered to focues on lving it would have happned in a single sitting. i feel its way to fast and needs to be slowed down, or the lv cap raised. past 20

now if that thing about collecting items to raise past 20.........hello a new grind XD ^_^

Glad to hear that the level cap is higher. I hope that the bonus things needed to hit prestige levels arent too difficult to find. I would like a challenge, but I would like for it to be a combat based challenge not a "oh let me run around the map for 6 hours in search of some stupid collectible object that I HAVE to get in order to play the game".

The differences between Destiny and WoW are innumerable.

I imagine that the grind will be similar to that of Borderlands (which really, honestly wasnt that bad). What that translates to is that there will be some people out there with super OP weapons that they spent hours to get, but the majority of people will be able to do just fine normally with the weapons they got while exploring.

I dont know how factions work in wow, but in Destiny its really just different forms of currency that are associated with each group. And all these different currencies are associated with different tasks. Additionally, they are meant to be done alongside what you are doing. They dont take control over what your goal is. If you WANT to grind you can, but the game by no means forces you to.

From my understanding of wow, you are forced to grind.

In BL2 you are not. It is optional.

Once you grind to 90 in WoW then just about everything is a grind, good weapons, mounts, achievments etc This is so you dont get bored and you keep paying every month! Destiny dont have huge grinds to keep you entertained at max level because you have already bought the game and you gave them what they want... and Conmaan what Agy is saying about there being factions is true there are vendors that sell items but to buy these special faction looking pieces of gear you have to gain rep with those factions but I highly doubt the grind will be anything like WoWs...  ::) ^-^ :3

I don't think so. Leveling the player doesn't seem like it will take all that long. Leveling the Faction, however, seems like it will.

My lady and I were trying to reach Vanguard Rank 2 the entire time we played during the beta by participating in all public events, completing side missions, and trading Spin Metal to the shops. She barely made it to rank 2 before the beta ended. I was about 100 points away.

No doubt, but I'm still sure it won't take that long. It seems the game will steer you towards leveling factions and allow you to reach level 20 by naturally playing through the game.

Destiny is being made by Bungie. Now to your question if this game is better than Halo, that comes down to opinion and preference. For me, I prefer Halo from playing the Destiny Beta but that might change when I play the full game as I'm only judging a game from a small proportion of the game I played. If anyone tells you Destiny is better than Halo as a fact, than that person is wrong, as it is their opinion. Only you can be the judge if Destiny is better than Halo.
Title: Re: Destiny
Post by: Jack Of Shades on July 29, 2014, 09:05:59 PM
Fergie is right. To me, I do NOT like Halo or any of the games within the Halo universe. But, Destiny clenched something for me that Bungie never did. Until now. Granted it was only a Beta. But even without so much as a story line (barely), the game captured me by game mechanics and play-ability alone. BUT that is just my opinion, so to me this is already better than Halo ANY DAY. And I expect to see some of you in September by the way! ;D

Post by: DiamondBack662 on July 29, 2014, 09:14:12 PM
After playing the beta, I've decided this game is a little to oriented at the moment on Halo style firefights and not enough RPG.. that might change later, but as it stands now I don't see myself buying the game. The missions weren't very interesting to me. Interactions with other players were rather limited, and NPCs were practically statues outside the missions. After wasting over 5GB of space and download time, I'm also rather annoyed the beta test was for only a couple of days as well.

I don't think its fair to compare it to halo. to me, its much more mass effect then halo. likewise to me its a strange mix of mass effect and WoW. for combat mass effect, for items and factions and PvP WoW.

and even then its not fair to comp[air it soly to ether just mass effect or WoW. as its its own odd mix of a game ^_^

Love the game, really nice on how it went :D love how the gameplay is!!!

Bungie did say that,"This might be Halo's predecessor." Bungie needed to make a game that everyone would enjoy, the gameplay, the feel that felt like a halo-style game but not having to deal with Covenant or flood, ever since Halo 3:ODST came out they where even thinking of doing destiny, mentioned by a poster all over the game saying "Destiny awaits." Bungie even made sure that they wanted to make the fans happy, and make some new ones along the way. Some people say that it's going to be the next halo, but some of it might be true. Even the enemy movements and animations look very familiar to Elites and Brutes [I'm Nerdy to notice I know,  :3]

Destiny will be a great game when it gets released in the fall,
Always fall,
never anytime before then,

Why not summer?

Honestly, this game is in a different sub-genre of games than Halo. Borderlands pioneered the loot fest shooter, and Destiny is a well-made take on the genre. Halo, on the other hand, is purely a fps.

After playing the beta, I've decided this game is a little to oriented at the moment on Halo style firefights and not enough RPG.. that might change later, but as it stands now I don't see myself buying the game. The missions weren't very interesting to me. Interactions with other players were rather limited, and NPCs were practically statues outside the missions. After wasting over 5GB of space and download time, I'm also rather annoyed the beta test was for only a couple of days as well.

This game isnt an RPG. Its a free-roam fps with loot and a storyline thrown in.

As for the colorlessness of the encounters, that might very well change when the full game comes out. I agree that there could be some variety, as well as some deeper storytelling going on with side quests and locations.

And yeah, the short duration of the beta was balls. Especially considering there are people like me who spent $65 ahead of time for next to nothing.

It actually is a RPG. A sub genre of RPG known as ARPG (Action Role Playing Game). Just had to throw my two cents in.

In some respects. You could argue that because you take on the "role of someone else" and that it what makes it an rpg.

But I would disagree, as I feel that other aspects of the game (such as the emphasis on combat) overpower the role-playing. Therefore, the predominant genre is fps.

This is all just my opinion though.

It's those aspects that put it into the sub-genre of ARPG. A game in that genre would be a rpg game focused more around FPS or Hack 'n Slash, rather than turn based gameplay. :P

Dunno about xbox, but PS4 was the main system they planned on releasing Destiny on. So I figured they would do something special for that, Xbox was a secondary to it. But who knows! They may offer something for Xbox as well. :)

Weekly Update 08.01.14

This week at Bungie, we put the Destiny Beta into millions of players’ hands.
No easy feat. You all kicked mountains of ass. While you battled aliens and each other, we learned a lot about how things work behind the scenes. We discovered even more by watching you fight and win and die and revive.
Now that it’s over, we’re having a blast all over again as you all try to tell your war stories in the loudest voice. The Destiny community has changed. You’ve seen some things. What’s been seen cannot be unseen.
The Beta was like a blizzard of data. As we dig ourselves out from underneath the numbers, we’re finding a few you might like. We know you hunger for stats. A lot of you mined them from the Destiny Companion. Here’s a post-game carnage report we can all click and enjoy:
(http://i1.wp.com/destinynews.net/wp-content/uploads/2014/08/beta_infographic_blog.jpg?resize=574%2C1452)
Our favorite achievement is the concurrency statistic. At its peak, the Destiny Beta became the most simultaneously played Bungie game of all time. There were more people online at the same time to play Destiny than any other game in our history. The Beta was more played than even final versions of previous Bungie games. You joined forces to populate the last safe city on Earth, and blew our minds.
This test was huge for us. In the final hours of our grand experiment, we put you to the real test. We knocked you down, but you got up again. We shrank the pool of available servers. We kicked you into orbit, applied patches to your ships, and watched as you descended to fight and dance and rage. Again. There was no stopping you. In the end, we had to kick the plug out of the wall.
We’re running out of ways to thank you for what the Beta has meant to us. We hope you had fun. Destiny will be a better game because you played it. Perhaps that’s the best gesture we can manage – to deliver a game that’s better than it was before your contribution.
Time will tell. Not much time, either. Today is the first day of August. Start the countdown on your last month of waiting. Next month, we’ll all start playing Destiny for real. You might even think you’re ready.
You’re not. (wink)

Where’d you get that

We’re already starting to hear that question being asked. One Guardian to another, people want to know where to dig the gold out of our brave new world. Everything worth having, from the guns in your grip to the armor on your back, will be tied to the action that you survive. When your friends ask where you got yours, you’ll have amazing stories to tell. Maybe you’ll even relive them through their fresh eyes.
Here’s a great story – and it cannot be relived or shared. If you played in the Beta, we’re equipping you with proof. It’ll be something that people won’t be able to mimic or obtain. It happened, or it didn’t. If you put your boots on the ground in the Destiny Beta, a launch emblem will be waiting for you in September.
(http://i2.wp.com/destinynews.net/wp-content/uploads/2014/08/stress-participation-emblem.png?resize=574%2C96)
With this emblem, we lured you to the July 26th rally. We needed to fill up our servers; see if you could break our backbone. You showed up to help us set our new record for concurrency. Now that we’ve seen how our new tech responds to a heavy load, we’re a lot more prepared for launch day.
(http://i1.wp.com/destinynews.net/wp-content/uploads/2014/08/beta_all_emblem.png?resize=574%2C96)
This emblem is for everyone who played, or wrestled the centipede and lost. Every moment of the Beta was important. Every tester was worthy of celebration and decoration. Polish it up and pin it to the upper right corner of your screen. Like all the best things in Destiny, you earned it.
You’ll be the envy of the people you meet in orbit. They’ll wonder where that came from. Feel free to tell them: “I played in the Beta. I helped Bungie make this game. I was there before Destiny was cool. Where were you?”
Oh, man. They’re gonna be jealous as their jump drives kick in.

Well I'm glad you and Con enjoy the Hunter class. ;D

Personally, any of them can be good. It's all on how you use them to. But Warlocks can be deadly if you use their skills right, that melee attack that absorbs their health is ridiculously awesome! :D

•Postcards from the Golden Age: Our worlds have been claimed by our enemies. Now, it's time to take them back.

I would've picked up the Limited Edition but the UK price for it is too expensive compared to the USD price tag than I usually see with limited editions which cost this much. It'd be cheaper for me to buy the Game and Expansions separately and nearly have enough money to possibly buy a brand new game.

here in the states its littrly only $5 more to buy the limited edtion........if only there where any for sale XD

i talked to qaud and i am gona take his advice, witch is to preorder the xbone version and pass, and just set it up that if more limited edtions become aviable (i highly dought they will) then i can get that instead ^_^

Bungie made official Friday what many already suspected following the Destiny beta for the PS4, PS3, Xbox One, and Xbox 360. That Guardian you created, played, and cultivated during the beta is no more. Say farewell as they will not return, but all 6.5 million Guardians did serve their purpose of the developer testing different ways to build a character.

“Beta characters won’t transfer to the final version of Destiny. The vaults have been cleaned out, too,”Community Manager David “DeeJ” Dague wrote in the Bungie Weekly Update.

“What you just experienced is something we’ve been through countless times here at Bungie,” he continued. “We feel your pain, and then some. Making a game requires iteration and progress. When we reinvent the world where the Guardians live, sometimes we have to leave them behind.”

Bungie Weekly Update - 08/08/2014

This week at Bungie, I’m packing my bags. You will never see this face again.
(http://static01.bungie.net/pubassets/26305/beta_warlock_01.jpg?cv=3983588676&av=467297811)
There is one question you’ve all been asking since the Destiny Beta went offline. We’ve heard you. It’s time to issue an official response. Before we get down to business, indulge me as I cast my own loving look back. There’s something I have to say to my dashing defender of the last safe city on Earth.
Hey, handsome. Miss you. We had a lot of fun together, didn’t we?
You were bold. Even in the darkest corners of Old Russia, your eyes burned with the same purple intensity that sent so many of your enemies into the Void.
You stood fast in the face of danger. Hive Ogres shook the ground beneath your feet.  The Lord of the Iron Banner put your skills to the test. Yet, after every mission, you returned triumphantly to the Tower.  Humanity had nothing to fear – not on your watch.
You were brave.
And now, you are gone.
You and millions of Guardians just like you. You helped us build a better world – all of you. But as great as that place has become, it’s a place that wouldn’t make sense to you anymore. Too much has changed.
I’ll remember you, and millions of Guardians like you, for the things you taught us. Thank you for letting us learn from your adventures. We promise your sacrifice will not be in vain.
See you starside.
(http://static01.bungie.net/pubassets/26305/beta_warlock_02.jpg?cv=3983588676&av=467297811)
If the rest of you haven’t gathered the painful truth from the eulogy yet, our Beta characters won’t transfer to the final version of Destiny. The vaults have been cleaned out, too.
Step away from this update and take a walk. Have a good cry, or howl at the Moon. We’ll be here when you’re done…
Welcome back.
What you just experienced is something we’ve been through countless times here at Bungie. We feel your pain, and then some. Making a game requires iteration and progress. When we reinvent the world where the Guardians live, sometimes we have to leave them behind.
Tyson Green is a Bungie designer who thinks long and hard about character ownership. He’s said goodbye to hundreds of Guardians throughout the pursuit of Destiny, and dozens of those warriors had evolved well past Level 8. He’s not the reason why your character is gone, but Tyson can explain why our Guardians won’t accompany us on launch day:
Since the Beta, we’ve continued to tune and adjust the game. The way you earn experience has been adjusted up and down a bunch of times. Items have been added and removed. New features toggled. Although there’s no single monumental change, the sum of the tweaks leaves characters from the Beta Build in strange shape that would be confusing at best, broken at worst.
We’ve been asked many times if this was a real Beta. It was. We learned a lot from your participation, and we’re going to tweak, adjust, and in some cases, make some significant alterations that ultimately mean your Beta Guardian can’t go home again.
This is the last time we’ll ask you to part with your hero. On September 9th, you can create a Guardian who will keep you company for a good, long time. On a long-enough timeline, you might decide to delete him or her and start over again – but that will be your call to make.
There are other worlds than these…
If you’re still smarting about the loss of your Beta Guardian, we’re here for you. Everyone in the studio is here for you, in fact. This week, for perhaps the final time, we “wiped” all the brave heroes that lived in the full build of Destiny. The usual funeral pyre of final screenshots was gathered and set alight.
Matt Bennier is a Senior Artist at Bungie. His exotic protector of humanity struck a final pose in our inbox that began the parade of commemoration and remembrance. Anyone out there still think that Warlocks aren’t frabjous enough?
(http://static01.bungie.net/pubassets/26305/warlock_exotic_blog.jpg?cv=3983588676&av=467297811)
Grab your Destiny Companion. Look at your Guardian. Now look at Matt’s. Now back to your Guardian. Now back to his. Despite your brave service and fantastic exploits in the Beta, it was only your first step into the wider world of Destiny. A small (yet record breaking) percentage of you barely even ventured to the Moon. There is so much left to do – so much left to earn and master.
Right now, you’re lamenting the loss of your starter gear, those pearls of mayhem of destruction that you carved from the wastes of Old Russia. Look beyond that horizon. We have exotic arms and armaments secreted away – adventures you can barely imagine right now.
In time.

Yeah, Destiny was supposed to be Playstation exclusive. And it still is, as far as content and such. So I kind of figured PS4 would attain more content for the game.

It doesn't bother me the timed exclusives content PlayStation has, the game will have enough content as it is.

Also you can redeem this code "7F9-767-F74" to use on Bungie.net for a emblem. http://www.bungie.net/en/User/coderedemption If you haven't used these codes yet either, I recommend doing so:

Warlock: YKA-RJG-MH9
 Hunter: 3DA-P4X-F6A
 Titan: MVD-4N3-NKH
 Rixis: TCN-HCD-TGY
 Old-Russia: HDX-ALM-V4K

The video was nice but I found the music disappointing. The guy said "something classical" not old school rock. I was expecting a tastefully juxtaposed battlefront montage on the moon. Revolutionary Étude would have been quite enjoyable ^_^

So has anyone checked out that 3D planet exploration thing? I thought it was pretty cool. You can't quite get a tactical bearing from it that you could use for actual gameplay but it has plenty of neat content.

You're not alone, I thought ACTUAL classic music would play. But I love Led Zeppelin so it wasn't bad for me. lol Not to mention, in that age, I assume Led Zeppelin would be classical. xD I dunno. But I was thinking the same thing when I first watched it, Gecko. :)

Bungie Weekly Update - 09/05/2014

This week at Bungie, we created Guardians that will never die.

We’ve lost count of how many brave heroes we’ve nurtured down the path from inception to legend, only to lose them to a new build of Destiny. The Hunters, Titans, and Warlocks that we’re playing as now will endure. They just need some more company in the Tower – and out in the wild.

The wait is over, friends. To prepare for your arrival, we’ve begun the adventure. As sweet as it is to be taking steps in the boots of characters that will survive long enough to reach their full potential, the experience is incomplete without you. This Tuesday, all of that changes.

(http://www.bungie.net/pubassets/615/fallen_desktop.jpg)

Perhaps you can remember the first official glimpse of our brave new world. The time for browsing our art is over. The time to embark on your own epic journey has come.

Here we go.



Long, Strange Trip

Upon my first arrival in the Tower with a freshly-minted Warlock, I collected a very special parcel from the Postmaster kiosk. Can you guess what it was?

(http://static01.bungie.net/pubassets/27376/beta_peak.png?cv=3983621371&av=3534061823)

That’s right. It was my Beta emblem. As I equipped irrefutable evidence that my first Moon landing was not faked, it occurred to me that we were starting to see in Destiny the first example of a crucial ingredient for any community: Heritage.

Community is all about people. When people share a common space or pastime for long enough, culture and history emerges. These are things to recognize and celebrate. Here are some other ways in which we’ll honor your legacy as a venerable member of the Bungie community.

(http://i.gyazo.com/78099754318fe1a4b0e4590c9b3d49a9.png)

Do you qualify for one of these rewards? Be sure to check in with Tess. She’s the nice lady in the Tower with special orders, special rewards, and (you guessed it) special emblems.

(http://static01.bungie.net/pubassets/27376/tess.jpg?cv=3983621371&av=3534061823)

We can feel the question that some of you are dying to ask:

You: Is being an old fart on Bungie.net the only way to earn a fancy emblem in Destiny?

Nope. No way. It’s just the best way to make sure one of them is waiting for you on Day One. Heritage, baby. Heritage is happening all the time.



What’s the Score?

The release of a new game is often marked by sacred rituals. Players stand in line at midnight to be the first to play. Managers wonder why their staff suddenly becomes violently ill. Industry experts dig in deeply and write their reviews and recommendations.

Typically, games receive their report cards before they become available to the public. We don’t believe Destiny is a typical shooter. You could experience the storyline, jump into a few rounds of competitive multiplayer, and form a Fireteam of friends and take on all the Strikes and you would just be getting started. Those activities are critical components of Destiny, but they are also a foundation for so much more.

After thousands of internal playtests, an internal Alpha, and a public Beta, we’ve also learned that Destiny isn’t Destiny without the most crucial component to our living, social world: You.

From the beginning, we set out to make Destiny feel like more than bits on a drive. We wanted to build a place for players to visit – a place filled with luminous life. Without a vibrant population for the last safe city on Earth, and Guardians roaming the wild frontiers, Destiny is a shadow of what it should be. That’s not how we wanted to submit for review.

We explored several options to populate the world for reviewers. Our team estimates it would take thousands of gamers to ensure each potential public space in Destiny would be populated – that every activity would be accessible at all hours of the day and night. Where on Earth would we be able to find thousands of gamers?

The answer, again, is you.

So, reviews of Destiny will wait for your arrival. On day one, you’ll be rubbing elbows with the pageant judges, so look sharp. Who knows, you may end up on one of their live streams. They may end up on one of yours, too!

For us, this is a first – a new experience. It’s a bit of a risk, too. We fully anticipate seeing day one reviews from folks who decide to kick the tires, but don’t have the time or patience to take our ride for a nice, long road trip. Some of you might wait to pick up a copy until you read the final verdict from your most trusted review house. We’re okay with that. We’ve created something we’re proud of.

We hope you love it as much as we do.



This is not the way the game ends.

Of course we’re not going to spoil the dramatic conclusion of Destiny here. However, there’s been a lot of chatter in the places where chatter happens about what awaits you after the end of the tale we’re telling in Destiny.

When our story ends, yours will begin. Check out the conversation below. It features questions harvested from the universal mind and answers that are a blend of the insights provided by Bungie designers Luke Smith and Tyson Green.

Q. Overall, what’s the goal of end game content in Destiny?

We want to give players and the community challenges to work on individually, and together.

Each player’s goal is to gear up, become more powerful, and face even greater challenges for a chance at the most powerful and awe-inspiring rewards Destiny has to offer.

Our goal is to curate a living world with activities for every mood. Whether you’re craving high intensity cooperative gameplay, shooting other players in the face in a variety of modes, or scouring the planets for precious resources and hunting for Public Events, we want Destiny to meet whatever mood you’re in.

Q. What can players expect after they achieve Level 20?

Destiny really begins at Level 20. Afterwards, each player’s power is displayed as their Light Level – this is the yellow number in their nameplate post-20 in the Tower. The way to increase that Level? Get better gear.

Strikes and Crucible matches can award powerful gear and currencies which you’ll use to buy Legendary (purple) gear from the Tower. Players can choose to champion one of our three Factions (New Monarchy, Dead Orbit, or Future War Cult) in both cooperative and competitive activities. This allows them to rank up and purchase gear from a particular Faction.

Which Faction you champion is related to what kind of build you’re focusing on. If you’re Warlock looking to focus on Discipline and Strength, you’ll be looking at the Dead Orbit Legendary Set and coveting it. If you’re looking for a great Legendary Hand Cannon you might champion the Vanguard, or maybe the Future War Cult, depending on which piece tempts you most.

Additionally, post-Level 20, players will unlock the Heroic mode progressions for Daily Heroic Story Chapters and Weekly Heroic Strikes. For example, in the Weekly Heroic Strikes, there are three recommended Light Levels and the first one, 22, will feature two modifiers.

Q. Tell us more about these Heroic Strikes!

A weekly rotation of very challenging Heroic Strikes (and the pinnacle Nightfall Strike) use high-level enemies and global modifiers to create challenges that require skill, gear, and sometimes creative character builds to beat.

Modifiers are one of the ways we tweak content we’ve already built. The first modifier is called “Heroic.” Heroic leverages the more difficult version of the encounters, but the second modifier is where we really start to challenge players. Take a modifier like Arc Burn – which increases all damage dealt by Arc Damage by 300%. If you’re a Bladedancer Hunter, you’re about to be an even more destructive force, and everyone else in your Fireteam is going to be scrambling for Arc weapons. But, if the enemies you’re facing also use Arc weapons, they will cut through you like paper.

We give a very similar treatment to the Daily Heroic Story Chapter, which are featured on a daily basis with bonus rewards.

Q. What about Bounties?

Xander 99-40, a Vendor in the Tower, will also offer Daily Bounties that send you into a variety of activities in exchange for experience and reputation rewards. These Bounties will provide Faction Reputation, either for the Vanguard or whichever Faction you’re championing, in addition to a bunch of XP.

Post-Level 20, XP is still super important to players. You are going to be seeking as much XP as possible to level weapons and armor, complete your first Subclass and make your way through the second. Bounties and the Daily and Weekly Activities are important sources of these bursts of XP. 

Q. Was the Iron Banner I experienced in the Beta indicative of what I’ll experience in the full game?

In the full game, Iron Banner is a longer lasting event that will give players more time to engage in it.

Q. Beyond Iron Banner, are there other events in the game?

There are!

Q. How does high level weapons, armor, and abilities change how I experience the overall sandbox?

Some Exotics provide unique modifiers that might change which abilities you focus on, creating new ways to be effective in cooperative and competitive play. It’s all about options and personal optimization.

As players make their way through Destiny they are going to find out what types of weapons, talents and stats they prefer when gearing their Guardian. Thinking about it in terms of Arsenal and Builds is a simple way to start to explore Destiny’s depth.

An Arsenal example: A Pulse Rifle player may find that he wants to find a Pulse Rifle with a talent combination like Full Auto (converts the weapon to a fully automatic), but he wants Field Scout (which extends the mag and the clip to the weapons max), so he’s going to have to hunt for a weapon sates his desires.

Now, Builds: Builds continue to progress long after players have completed the last Story mission. A bunch of the synergies found within a given build don’t come online till late in this build – like the Fireborn Sunsinger doesn’t actually earn the Self-Resurrection power till very late in his progression.

There are also synergies outside of the builds in the form of both Armor Talents and Exotic Armor. Armor Talents allow players to align their arsenal and their build to create powerful synergies.

For example, a Titan might try and find weapons with Grenadier (kills with this weapon reduce the cooldown of your grenades), and marry it with a bunch of Armor Talents which also accelerate grenade cooldowns. This Titan would probably also be looking for a lot of high Discipline armor as the Discipline lowers the cooldown for grenades.

Q. When should I expect to give the Vault of Glass a run?

The Vault of Glass can be broken into beginning on September 16th, assuming you’ve achieved level 25. This allows all of our players a week to dive into the world, start to make their Guardians and prepare for what lies behind a giant door on Venus.

Q. What are some other ways you plan on continuing to support Destiny, beyond content? Do you have any support/sustain plans in the works?

Our first few weeks are already set aside to be reactive to what the community teaches us. After that, we have plans and plans, but all of the details will depend on what we learn in the next two weeks.

There are many evolutions ahead of you, Guardian. Many ends and plenty of beginnings. Be brave.



When I first sat down and grasped the controls of Bungie.net, there wasn’t a lot to talk about. So, we made small talk. I was curious to know all of you. Still am.

(http://static01.bungie.net/pubassets/27376/bungie_mailsack.jpg?cv=3983621371&av=3534061823)

The release of Destiny brings a long and protracted tap dance to an end. Late in 2011, I was sent west to serve the community that had taught me the wonders of social gaming. At that time, I couldn’t even say the word “Destiny” – not even in a contextual statement about fate. Now, it’s a word on the lips of many anxious gamers. Within a matter of days, anyone in the world will be able to wrestle with our pet tiger.

There will be questions to ask – and answer – in the future. That conversation won’t end. For now, there is only question to consider:

DeeJ: Do you want to play Destiny?

Hopefully, the answer is: “Yes!” We’ve packed a lot of love into our new game. We hope it shows.

The next time we open the sack, it will be filled with interrogatives plucked from the battlefield of your choosing. The loot of curiosity will flow from your missions. You’ll ask us about the things you’ve seen, done, conquered, looted, and earned.

I’m looking forward to reading them – to stepping back and letting you drive the conversation. Until then, there is not much else we can say. It’s your turn to grasp the controls for yourself and tell us what you think this thing is.

Thank you for being our candle in the darkness these past few years. Thank you for your enthusiasm and your patience. Thank you for your loyalty and your criticisms. Thank you for being the best damn community we could ever hope for.

Our journey is far from over.

See you starside.

Purchasing a last-generation version of Destiny digitally will get you the new generation version for free.

Activision and Bungie announced a digital upgrade program for Destiny, which will let players who purchase a digital copy on PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360 upgrade to PlayStation 4 or Xbox One, respectively. That also includes the Guardian Edition and Expansion Pass, as long as it's kept within the same "console family."

You'll need to purchase the last-gen versions before January 15, 2015 to qualify for the upgrade. The official site has details on how to redeem your upgrade by navigating to the proper section of each store. After redeeming the upgrade, though, you'll still be able to continue playing Destiny on your old system.

The site also notes that whether you participate in the program or not, your stats will be cross-platform and kept intact if you ever upgrade.

Bungie recently unveiled the Dust Palace map, one piece in a handful of content exclusive to PlayStation platforms.

I believe they are already available on the Xbox One and PS4 for download. Some players have already been able to actually download content as well. You can't actually play the game yet, but you can have it installed so that you can get right to it on launch day.

Thing is, I don't own an Xbox One. And I don't plan on it for a long time. So 360 version is my first and only choice. I was just wondering if it would be released On-Demand the day OF the release. ^_^ But, doesn't matter anyway since I don't have my refund check yet. xD lol

I couldnt find anything about whether or not the "free digital upgrade to next-gen console" would expire.
For example, if I know I'm getting a PS4 way down the road, like a year or two, and if I buy the PS3 version of Destiny now, would the PS4 digital copy expire before then?

Free digital updates usually expire after a set time in this case the date I found is January 15th 2015. There may be a payable digital upgrade where you pay a percentage of the price for the upgrade after the expiree date. Hope this helps :D

So what class has everyone picked so far? I was the Titan on the Beta and now became a Hunter as I felt like a change, and my other 2 friends are Warlocks. Those 2 fight about wearing different armour, I don't have to worry about it. ::)

I'm now Level 8 currently.

I played all 3 classes in the beta, but I've picked Titan for my 1st character, will do hunter next. Agy I'll be playing PS4 co-op as soon as I get a playstation plus card that doesn't require me to put my credit card info in, I don't trust $ony's internet security.

Personally I'm not worried about security as I never use my card for either Xbox or Playstation as I don't like the auto renew feature that comes with them. So I personally stick to prepaid cards.

So I really enjoyed Destiny in the Beta, and I'm enjoying it now as the full game. They have some interesting names for the enemies, but you'd think they could have come up with a better name than "The Darkness" as the name for "The Traveler's" enemy.

agy thoughts! ^_^

why is it a lv 1 creature gives me the same exp as a lv 8??

i swear they nerfed sniper rifle max ammo

wheres the exp? i remmber going up a lv a mission so that i was always the crrect lv for the mission. thats not the case now tho for some reasion.

bountys are wild, i just went form lv 4 to lv 6 in the matter of a few mins becuse of them XD

whats up witht the nutty patrol missions? i grab a mission in the lv 2 mob area.....................that sends me to an area with lv 8 mobs and thew the hive and just threw a nightmare guantlet. thats a little brutal XD

qaud found me a chest that has a rocket luncher in it......................shananagins ensued as i starte to one hit bosses.

got into one of the publ;ic event thingys, we took down one of those uber big tanks. got gold star ranking for it, got sme nice upgrade items and money.

The monsters themselves don't give you much experience. You get experience for the activity. The harder it is the more you get.

Don't think so. Most I get have the same. Some actually have more than what I remember from the beta. Though that could just be a type we didn't get to use.

wheres the exp? i remmber going up a lv a mission so that i was always the crrect lv for the mission. thats not the case now tho for some reasion.
The beta had accelerated leveling I believe because of the time frame. Same goes for all the loot and gear.

bountys are wild, i just went form lv 4 to lv 6 in the matter of a few mins becuse of them XD
Yup. Activities are the way to go.

Looking forward to those events,
Also must say, love the gameplay, but hate the missions, every mission seems like a side quest and are exactly the same, Put the little light down, defend, blow it up, on pretty much every mission, and other then the queen you get no decent story other then a little light talking.

the story so far is lacking. as quad lieks to point out "lol da darkness". i am hoping it picks up some as we go along, for sure not even a canlde to mass effects story. but i am not really excpeting it (as some people are). ^_^

Completed the game on my lvl 20 hunter! TBH I loved the end of the campaign especially the last mission as the lore kinda linked together :D Got to say once you unlock venus the story gets much better and so does the gameplay! :D

MY hunter was very fun to play on PvP and PvE! :D I have all rare gear and weapons and 2 of my cloaks are legendary! :D But im currently saving up for some insane Exotic/golden gear from that creepy hooded guy you see every weekend  ::)

So in a nutshell, I love this game and will never stop playing! :D  :3

so whats every oens thoughts on the raid system?

talking with ferige I learned of things I never even knew of it. like that to even attempt it, you need 5 other people FROM YOUR FREINDS LIST in order to play it, mics arnt an option, there needed as its goning to supsidly require a lv of copuration most have never seen in FPS games.

honsitly this is turning out like I said it would, this is basickly WoW with guns. a lot of you laughed at me when I said it, well here it is.

so what are peoples thoguiths on it?

me personaly, its never gona happen for me, as I cant fathom getting 5 other people on my friends list to all sit down at the same time to play a seassion we may or may not beat, and we may or may not even get gear for, as you can get gear for classes your not even playing as.....worse you can only get gear once a week, this is littrly the game book of WoW. only diffrince is WoW l;earned that it alleinates a large porsion of its base by not having matvch making, so they added match making. hopfuly destiny will learn in time that they need match making.

edit: reading stuff form the guy who is in charge of the raids, this guy is dangresly delusuinal. makes no effert to hide that he wants raids to be for the horde core of hard core players only...........

http://www.forbes.com/sites/insertcoin/2014/08/03/the-solution-to-destinys-friends-only-raid-problem/

is a good article on it all.

as a neat note, as I said WoW was once like this, raids reserved for the hard core of the hard core, there final turn around was the last raide in there burning crusiade exp, where only 2% of the total population of WoW even set foot in the raid let alone beat it. I really hope binguie doesint make the same mistakes WoW did, expaicly when they are still around to learn from.

this is where things get ugly. your on the 360, so now you need 5 other peopel who own it for the 360 to do the raid on your firends list.

i cant even help you if i wanted to becuse i own it for the ps4 or xbone.

my understanding of it (and this is an understanding, i havint attmepted them yet). is that you need to be lv 20+, with amazing gear. have a mic, and be able to work well with your 5 other friends.

best of luck ^_^

agys destany update

a lot of people are aparirttly pissed over the complty out of the blue server shut down recitnly, the game gave all of a 30 sec notice before it kicked eveyr oen in mass. (tho some got the message if they loged on close to it, many didnt get it tho).
one of my fav quotes i saw was "what.....this is 2014 right!?! why did this happen"
the idea that they woudlent have even givin a 5 min warning is shocking to me. and speaks badly of where bingin is goign with this. i hope they learned form this.
another quote i liked "It's like this game was made a decade ago with today's technology by a company that never experienced any of the lessons every other company learned "

any who, thats just the info i saw today about it ^_^
o and more whining about the no match making for raids XD
and more whing about "wait..........thats it?" XD

dont take any of this as whining or complaiing, i still play this game ^_^

One thing that I greatly appreciate about the full game as opposed to the beta is the number of lootboxes that I have come across. It seems to me that there are much more all over the place.

bad way, it was cheap stuff liek the enemys do silly amounts of more damage. so no real thinking involded just the enemys do a ton more damage and have more hp. IE the lazy way out to make a game harder.

was aculty reading thats all hard mode raids are too, just enemys with silly amounts of hp and near 1 shot kills for damage.

Post by: II FerGie x 🍀 on September 16, 2014, 06:07:17 PM
So after 14 hours of the first raid being opened today, it has been finally been beat by a clan called "PrimeGuard". Across all 6 members, they died 1,605 times.

I haven't been able to try it out yet as I don't have enough people and not a high enough rank, but there's an achievement to complete a Raid without anyone in your fireteam dying. If it's as difficult as this group has said and others, only a very small % of players, if not none will get this hard achievement. :P

If anyone has managed to try out The Vault of Glass yet, what did you think of it so far?

A few interesting points that my dad brought up about Destiny: (Note-There are plot spoilers, but ones that you could probably pick up on by watching the trailers. Nothing big.)

First of all, quite a few of the guardians if not all of them have been ressurected by the Traveler. Essentially, we are the Traveler's undead army.

Secondly, have you ever noticed that all of the class names have bad connotations? Warlock. Hunter. Titan. While the enemies have names with good connotations. Knights. Wizards. Etc. The theory going around is that the traveler is some sort of evil entity that fled to Earth because it is being chased down by the good guys, and that the Darkness is actually the Traveler. And we, the guardians, are its puppets. One player even accounts to have said that an enemy in game reffered to the player as the Darkness.

Found that second theory to be pretty fascinating. I would love it if this were true. Best plot twist ever.

played some with quad again today. it really feels like the ps4 version does look better then the xbone version.

we started from the beginning and have played eveyr level so far on hard mode form the start. hard mode for sure is the way this game should be played. its littrly 100x more fun on hard mode doing the missions. such wildly more powerful and uniqe enemies then reg version. ^_^!!!

only issue now is that for the first mars missions its lv 6 reg, but for hard mode its lv9 :O! so I am gona need to lv some :O!

but yea for sure hard mode is a lot more fun ^_^ I emagine its how raids are, we had to keep on using cover and could get one shoted by some things (enemy snipers were brutal to me, so were the big Templars with there hude swords). but it was tons of fun ^_^!!!

yea it sucks that its on 4 different systems. uasuly I am all for multy system games, but a game like destiny (witch is a closet mmorpg). really needs to be on a single system to ban every oen together kinda thing.

that said it still suicks that I am never gona see raids unless they add a match maker for them. stupid bingi, makes an mmorpg, then trys to pretend its not by not having a matchmaker for its raids XD

played destiny pvp for the first time today. happy and yet kinda upset with it too.

there needs to be more varaiation in the lvs, I found 3 different lvs, of that I was in the one 9 times comapired to one each for the others........

stero typical pvp, one side is pro the other is weak.

shotguns are insanely broken overpowered. they need to be weakedn badly

warlocks are overpowered.

titans/hunters feel right for power.

have yet to find a lv where it would make sense to use a sniper rifle.

surpised I was able to set up ambushes and one shot people as i back stabed them as they ran by.

I had fun playing the take and hold one, didn't try the others.

over all it was fun, but honsitly shotguns are broken overpowered to the point they literaly break the game. and warlocks need to be nerfed some.

I did it ONCE, never again. Pvp is not my thing on games. Especially on Destiny, something unbalanced about it. Mostly what you said, Agy. It stands true, to be honest. So I just do Strikes, Patrols, and Story Mode.

yea the bigist issue I have, and read about, is shotguns are brutaly over powered. theres no reason not to nerf them. it makes melee pointless because you can just oen shot someone with a shot gun faster then they can even hit you the first time.

if they heavly nerf shotguns, and twiek warlocks, it would be a ton of fun.

I'd like to know how warlocks are overpowered at all. It's funny that you're the one who said they'd be useless earlier too. Shotguns are only as effective as they are in most competitive FPS games. If you know someone is abusing one all you have to do is use your grenades or stay farther from them.

You also said you haven't found a use for sniper rifles yet. That's because you've played one game type, Salvage, which is usually smaller maps. There are sniper rifles with different scope attachments that can make them versatile enough for almost every map anyways.

I've played plenty of Crucible (the PVP of Destiny) including each game type and I feel I can safely say it's pretty balanced, and definitely fun. The only thing I have a problem with is the range at which fusion rifles can one-shot-kill people. When someone abuses that I get annoyed, but aside from that I typically have a diverse, wholesome experience.

Agy: still worthless in pve, just over powered in pvp.

Agy: don't pretend to know what missions I have played, likewise still worthless. (tho I had fun today head shoting people at point blank range with them today)

My POV on over powered stuff,

Shotguns need less range

Fusion rifle need less range (by alot) and slower recharge on some of them.

Exotics, There are guns that are assault rifles that can 2-3 bullet people. making them who own them impossible to fight with normal methods

Warlocks Sun singer is OP for amount of shields they can get, while void walker grenades are OP (1 grenade that can kill up-to 3 people), Also warlock meele range is 3x that of the other classes

Hunters supers are OP (both can kill 3 or more players without much problem and can get kills are realy far range which the warlock/titan can not do.

Both classes have stupid blink ability which when know how to use makes pvp super easy

Titans have OP shoulder barge on striker

You just reiterated. You still haven't supported anything you've said. I'm pretty sure I make good use of the warlock class in PvE. Maybe it's just you.

I'm not pretending to know anything. You said yourself that you had only played one game type and that it involved capturing and holding points. It could either be Control or Salvage, and since you said you couldn't find use for the sniper rifle I assumed it was Salvage since the maps are usually small for that game type.

Lastly no, I don't like using shotguns. It's always sniper on special weapon for me. I'm not sure why you theorized that I'm a shotgun user.

My POV on over powered
Shotguns need less range
Slightly less, yes. I believe they're still manageable though.
Fusion rifle need less range (by alot) and slower recharge on some of them.
I pretty much agree completely with this.
Exotics, There are guns that are assault rifles that can 2-3 bullet people. making them who own them impossible to fight with normal methods
The only truly OP weapon I've encountered is the notorious Vex Mythoclast. It deals insane damage, great stability and huge magazine, and fires as fast as a slow auto rifle. The weapon is insanely hard to achieve, so some serious power is only fair but I do still think it needs nerfing. Aside from this I don't think any exotics are genuinely too strong for balanced PvP.
Warlocks Sun singer is OP for amount of shields they can get, while void walker grenades are OP (1 grenade that can kill up-to 3 people)
I don't think either of these are quite true. Using flame shield as your melee when you're Sunsinger only gives you around 150% health, and that's if you're full. The blue bar it actually adds is a flat 50%. This is only really a kicker if you melee a warlock, he melees back to get health, then you hit again and the warlock returns the strike. You'll be dead and the warlock will be about half a bar of health. Lowering their health that much before you start the melee war is quite easy. Voidwalker doesn't have any OP grenades, especially any that can kill three people. Even if you have upgraded voidfang vestaments for the third axion bolt seeker you can't kill three people unless they're all about 60% health each. Other than that there is a scatter grenade that barely does enough damage to kill one person (since the damage spreads out so much) and a standard drain field grenade.
Hunters supers are OP (both can kill 3 or more players without much problem and can get kills are realy far range which the warlock/titan can not do.
These supers are a bit simple but aiming Golden Gun is still tricky. Arc blade can be seen from a mile away and their defense boost is only moderate. Up close you're definitely done for though.
Both classes have stupid blink ability which when know how to use makes pvp super easy
Blink users do drive me crazy but I've never felt hopeless against them.
Titans have OP shoulder barge on striker
This does get me every time. Without fail. I guess it's fitting for the class though. It's not tactical at all, just essentially a strong melee.

You have put into perspective the pros of the classes quite well but I think we see them differently. I think Bungie intended for supers to be a chance for players to have an advantage over the others and kind of go nuts. It really spices things up, having to be on the lookout for so many different abilities. Yes, some people definitely are unsporting with how they use their classes' perks, but that's possible with most of the other features as well. You just have to bear with Bungie. I don't think they'll compromise on core elements to account for the bad apples.

It could either be Control or Salvage, and since you said you couldn't find use for the sniper rifle I assumed it was Salvage since the maps are usually small for that game type.

agy tends to get blown up a lot since we play hard mode always ^_^

but is ok, put the veterain (quad) and da rookie (da agy!) together and you might as well have one normal soldier ^_^

is fun playing with quad since quad has a brain about him ^_^. keeps agy out of too much truble ;D ^_^
tho playing on hard mode its funny beating lvs and getting gear for a mission reward that is some 5+ lvs lower then the whites/greans I get on drops form the hard mode lvs XD silly game ^_^

ty for responding fergie ^_^

sadly tho your sentiment is what I feared would happen. that every one would beat the core game, maybe raid once or twich and realize this is latterly an mmorpg with guns. and as any who has played an mmorpg regueraly knows, end game grinding sucks. raiding week after week, generaly with zero gear upgrade from it (that darn RNG!), really sucks.

sadly I think that after that new call of duty comes out, even more people are gona stop playing.

them adding match making for the raids could go a long way, but even then its only a temp fix. sure theres at lest 2 dlc coming out for it, so its nice to have good gear form the raids, but I'm not spending weeks raiding, hoping for gear (been there done that in wow), just so I can get into a new raid and spend weeks hoping for new gear to do the next raid (again been there doen that for wow).

but at lest for now I am having fun playing the story line with quad ^_^

me and quad found a new lv of fun today, hard mode...........with vex..............XD!!!

I think 50%+ of my deaths by them have been the big ones tellying right next to me (o and there mostly the yellow named ones too on hard). and them back handing me XD!!!!

I think it took us over 10 times to beat the last part of the 2nd venues lv. it was just insanity, latterly every other sniper and big guy was yellow named. they came form both directions. I think I counted 5+ big guys on ether side. was just nutty.

we fianly beat ti by accident when quad lost his connection and it was like the enemys didn't know what to do. so agy reverted to feral mode (with no quad around to corral her). and ended up waging gurrila warfair with a rocket luncher against the big guys. and retreating back to my hiddey spot when things got ugly. luckjly quad came back and we beat it ^_^!!!

I do love venues so far!!! ^_^ the vex are a very cool very tugh enemy!!! ^_^ bravo to bengie for making them ^_^

Nope, just grinding for gear to get your level up to 30, December is when the first DLC gets unlocked. I normally don't play PVP, but a friend got me into playing that recently.

My goal ultimately is to switch over to Sony's side again. lol I just need to replace all my games now, with the same ones for PS3/PS4, wait...can PS4 play PS3 games?! Anyway, yes I'd love to play with the both of you!

yea that's my issue too, I have suich a huge gamer score on xbox and so many games on it. basickly I am just leaving it behind for now. doing with ps4 what I did with pc, used to be if a game came out for all 3 (360/ps3/pc) I would get it for pc, or barring pc avalabitly I would get it for 360. but now after playing alien isolation and seeing the amazing things they can do with the ps4 controller. I might dare say sort of something like a elder scrolls I am gona get it for ps4 now over even pc.

yes we do every thing we can do on hard modes ^_^, gives more exp and really it feels like the way the game should be played. exppcialcy against the vex.

and strikes are hard enough as it is XD, I don't see how it would even be remotely possible for a team of at lv players to do one.

I wish I had a stronger PC, but mine is just good enough to handle some games. If I were to buy, let's say, ESO...it would DIE. No way of installation or any way to play it on here. lol But I see where you are coming from. And I used to care about my Gamerscore...but now..meh.

Bungie has announced Destiny's first expansion, The Dark Below, will be available on December 9 for $19.99 / £19.99 as a standalone purchase, or as part of the $34.99 / £34.99 Season pass which also offers the second expansion, House of Wolves.

The developer has also gone into details about what new content we'll be seeing to justify that purchase price. Along with the expected new weapons and armour, the Light Level cap will raise to 32 with five new bounty slots also added.

The expanded story will apparently focus on new character Eris, who has spent years hiding among the Hive only to come forward bearing a warning. The Hive are apparently trying to summon a god, Crota, to destroy Earth. Eris will be found in the Tower where she'll offer you special quests including three new missions where you can increase your Light and get new rewards.

Other additions include a new co-operative Strike, The Will of Crota, which pits you against Omnigul as she works to expand Crota's Hive army, and a new six-player Raid, Crota's End, where you enter the Hellmouth presumably to take the deity on.

On the PvP front, there are three new arenas: Pantheon, set in the Black Garden inside a Vex temple with tight corridors; Skyshock, an old interplanetary defense array; and The Cauldron, an abandoned Hive ritual site focused on close combat.

Additionally, PlayStation platforms will get another co-operative Strike called The Undying Mind.

And when I thought timed DLC for a given platform was bad, this exclusive Strike mission takes it to a new level. I really hope this doesn't catch on, I'd rather everyone gets the content rather than only Xbox/PlayStation.

1. $20/£19.99 Standalone $34.99/£34.99 Season Pass
2. Light Cap: Lvl 32
3. New Armor and Weapons
4. 5 New Bounty Slots
5. Follow new character Eris in story mode, with 3 new missions
6. New Strike: The Will of Crota
7. New Raid: Crota's End
8. New PvP Maps: Pantheon, Skyshock, The Cauldron
9*. Exclusive Strike for Playstation: The Undying Mind

Also a "expanded story"? There wasn't much of a story in the main game.

I don't think it's worth my £19.99 buying this, it's very expensive for a game which had its main game lack in content. (On top of that some of these areas are most likely already on disc, just locked away.)

What does this mean for Multiplayer?
Wouldn't having access to a higher light level allow you to soar over any of the players who didn't buy the DLC, in terms of better armor, weapons, etc?

Also I didn't check this for the beta when I played, but can you drop weapons in-game? For example, you can discard your pistol on the ground in place of a better dropped weapon by the enemy?

1. In Iron Banner, this'll be the case. In normal Multiplayer I don't think this'll be a problem unless the DLC weapons are OP.

2. No you can't drop weapons in game, if you want to discard a weapon you'll get resources from it which could be Glimmer, Weapon Parts and Ascendant Energy depending on the rarity of the weapon (Common, Uncommon, Rare, Legendary, Exotic). Also enemies drop engrams so this can be weapons or armour. You will not know until you've picked it up, it's nothing like how Borderlands does it.

i agree about the exculsive stuff. its one thing if the game its self is exclusive. but ti have content set to X/Y consule excluisivly is a huge problem.

duas ex the newist one did this for a while with WII U. but after a while they released the directors cut of the game to pc and such (at a hefty price).

come to think of it this has aculty been going on for a very long time now. even back in ps2/xbox days.
the seruies dynatsy warriors since about the 3rd game have been releashing there "ledgnedary edition" witch was basickly a whole new game of dlc (even tho it wasint tehcinckly dlc). for ps2 only and the xbox got shafted.
this went on till i think the 5-6? game and then it was stoped becuse of out cry. but then when i thought it was safe to get the seruies for the 360 (as i didnt have a ps3) they do it for #7.......grr!!! i wanted it so bad i was ready to get a ps3 just for it :O!

luckly now they releash the eldgndary edtions for all of the consules now, even pc.

but anywho, yea i dont liek where this is going. do we know if it was made knowable ahead of time? i remmber the box for the ps4 version said it would have exclusive content. but i thought it ment for day 1 stuff. i didnt think it ment for the DLC too.

do we knwo if its just the strike mission? or is there gear too thats limited to it?

ether way, i agree with ferige, is evil :O!

i emagine its gona be a lot like WoW if you ever played it when an exp comes out. any oen who doesint have it is gona get left behind.

but it wont be as big of an empact as a lot of the PvP is set to disable lv beneifts. (as fergie mentioned).

where i do see an issue. is for peopel wanting to run raids now. i dont see why it will be any diffrent then any other MMO out there. litterly unless your max lv/above the old cap. your gona be left behind and someone over the cap is going to be taken over you. sucks but thats human mentalitly for you.

I understand why Microsoft and Sony have a game it self exclusive to their console. If you can't get these games "Halo, Forza, Sunset Overdrive etc." anywhere else other than Xbox, people will buy an Xbox. It works, I love Halo so it's one of the main reasons I bought an Xbox. If I could've bought Halo, Forza etc. on a PS4, what'd be a point in owning a Xbox or both consoles? It's healthy competition but exclusive DLC is a major problem for me, I'm paying for content the same price PS users are but getting less, it's stupid.

Also the pricing is far to expensive and unappealing, I can buy a game like Sunset Overdrive for the same price as the Expansion pass but £5 more, what sounds like the better deal? A brand new game with tons of content or 2 DLC's for content I only care for a small amount? :P

but anywho, yea i dont liek where this is going. do we know if it was made knowable ahead of time? i remmber the box for the ps4 version said it would have exclusive content. but i thought it ment for day 1 stuff. i didnt think it ment for the DLC too.

do we knwo if its just the strike mission? or is there gear too thats limited to it?

I was only aware of the Day 1 stuff, and that was only a timed exclusive and will be on Xbox platforms around Fall 2015.

I'm only aware of the Strike mission.

In short, all I care about in the DLC is one Strike and one Raid, 3 missions I'll rarely play as I doubt it'll be on the Daily Challenges, 3 Crucible maps I will rarely play as I dislike Crucible, an increase level cap I'll never reach and more bounties I don't have a problem with now, just means less trips to the Tower which is nothing big and should be free for everyone. I do dislike the idea of having to get new armour now to progress to 32, all the armour Level 30's have now will become pointless as they'll need to replace it to progress so all the work you've put in so far is for waste.

i did warn every one at the time that destany was litterly WoW with guns. some people (not you <3), got very agreessive to me about that statment..........guess what? agy was right ^_^ (for better or worse).

thats littrly an MMO in a nut shell. its nothing but a nonstop gear grind. grind a raid for a few months, get the best gear. just so you can do the next raid for a few months, get the best gear. then do the next raid-

you see where i am goign with this. its the basses to EVERY MMO out there.

now tho theres going to be a very big new question. how is destany goning to handle the gear jump?

as in are we going to need the best gear in the game form the old raid to do the new raid?
or will we get the option to buy "old raid gear" equivalent gear to just jump into the new raid?

if its the first, prepair for utter nonsese. get ready for few peopel wanting to take randoms who arnt raid lv geared or better already (making it near pointless to run it, but honsitly that happens).

if its the 2nd then get ready for more grinding.......

does thsi suck? yes......yes it does.

is this what an MMO is? yes.......yes it is.

but it doesint bother me personaly, as i knew well ahead of time that destany was an MMO. so having the exp i have with MMOs, i knew this was going to happen.

i do feel bad tho for any one who ether didnt listion to me, or simply didnt see me say it that this was going to be nothign but an mmo with guns.

i except sadly that when the new CoD comes out that theres gona be a noticable drop in player base. as it will steal most peopel who just played destany for the FPS part of it.

much like quad i will still be playing destany. at lest untill i hit a point where i cant go any fruther becuse i need to raid. then thats when i will stop playing. (unless they add match making for raids).
but seeing the stupid that is people out there when me and quad did the first strike on earth (and we otu lved it by 6+ lvs.......and we still got our butts handed to us). that there so tuff with out amazing team work that i emagine raids are even worse and it may fail badly.
luckly i dont even need to talk to quad to knwo what he wants me to do 90%+ of the time XD ^_^
tho i should talk to quad, hes a gental man (a bad boy gental man, but still a gental man) ^_^
Title: Re: Destiny
Post by: Agykoo on November 03, 2014, 02:45:41 AM
finaly beat the game with quad. also hit lv 20 ^_^ (am aculty lv 21 now)

theres so much they can do with the story, expaicly after playing all the side missions. but alas bengie is lazy.

am kinda upset they didnt get into the vex story line, and its kinda impossable now (since you knwo we killed there god). but there was one point that the ghost mentioned the vex had sealed the black garden off not only from space, but time its self. but even the ghost thought that was impossable. but they never got into why it was sealed off. or better yet what exsactly was the black garden any way? why is it even a garden? what was off in the distance on that mountion that was glowing? urgh so many questions and beignie didnt feel liek answering any oen of them, those lazy bums!

so any who now that i am lv 20+ and beat the story...........gear grinding time! woot!...........wait.........o noies! not woot :O!

ugh gear grinding, the very base for any mmo.

me and quad did a lv 18 strike from the vangard interface. the gear was a joke. it gave me lv 16 blues. i laughed.
also we met someone who clearly never played an mmo before. the jerk never bothered to revive me or quad. the onyl time he rezed quad was when he happned to be next to him and he was last garden standing (since i had to run out of cover to rez quad since that ass wouldent.......quad aculty had to come get me the guy didnt move an inch). quad would litterly die with in mer inchs of the guy.......and the guy woudlet rez quad. his kill count was a joke too. so basickly me and quad just 2 personed that lv 18 strike.
got 10 paices of gear.............of witch 8 where worthless greens........2 blues........both chest psices.......both lv 16 and weaker then the blue cheat pice i had on........ugh.........

then we decied to do a lv 20 strike. got one on mars i never did before. luckly! the 3rd person we got was not only compitinet, he was a team player. and its a good thing too becuse that was a cluster fudge of a strike. the boss was 3 human sized mobs. was such a pain to beat them becuse they kept getting colosalse sized adds........that happend to be yellow named and sheilded and had gattaling guns or gernade lunchers XD
got to the point where we had to box in each boss one at a time with our bodys and juggle back and forht with melle hits and emptying clips, when oen of us died we woukld rez and keep knifing the bosses. was nuts.
my aweosme reward? the single best pice of gear i got form it where lv i kid you not 17 blue boots..........WHAT! (flips table). so we just ran a lv 20 strike.........and got a single pice of LV17!!!!! blue :O!!!!! (blows up).
i wanted it to be lv 20 blue........heck i would have taken lv 19 blue........but to give out lv 17 blue gear (AS THE MISSION REWARD, nto even random gear we are talkign here) in a lv 20 mission........is a sick joke.

so i looked online, it seems the gear form some of the strikes is a joke. and recomends doing pvp matchs to get lv 20 blue gear from. supaidly if i get a full set of lv 20 blue gear, and fully upgrade it, i can get to lv 24 threw its light. after that i need to hit the high lv strikes to start to get pruple gear. meh

anywho, on the plus side i had a ton of fun with quad ^_^!!!!! so much da fun! ^_^ agy was glad quad put up with her for so long and da agy levels of shanagins! ^_^ (and trust me agy levels of shananagins is enough to make any one insane.......er XD ^_^) ^_^

destiny gear logic...........agy needs to be lv 23-24..........to get the gear she needs to be lv 23-24..........what?


my understanding is the gear I get is littrly based sololy on my lv, including light lv.

when I was lv 20 I only got lv 16 gear, as I raised my light lv the gear got higher.......but that's a huge pain in the booty.

anyway, now that I am light lv 23, I am starting to see lv 19 gear, and some lv 20 gear (I have a lv 20 rocket luncher and sniper rifle, and a lv 20 helm). but I need full lv 20 blues to get to lv 24.

then after that I can run the lv 24 heroic strike to get rares (I think). but at this rate I am gona have the marks to just buy the rare gear XD

also agys pvp review..........

contorlal is hands down my favrit pvp. it just plays right into my strong suit of being absolotly totoalty insane. I littrly do nothing but nonstop run around the lv caping, and using nothing but my knife and gernades and sometimes my shiot gun. litrly 99% of my attacks are me knifing people.
it is the scaryist moist hilariues thing to see XD, me running with the imporved hunter speed knifing people left and right XD
am sure my team hates me as I run right by them trying to take cover and just wrecking ball my way into the enemy XD!!
ironciklyl I tend to aculty do pretty good for just knifing people, I am generaly middle of the road, sometimes even top killer XD!!!

clash (I think that's the 6v6 just kill)

this on is ok. its basickly control with out caping, not bad but I prefer control ^_^

rumble (the free for all)
I kinda hate this one, infact first time I played it I thought it was the worst by far (o was I so wrong, next one is worse). its always in a small lv, and its just a pain as its nothing but "lol shotgun blast" left and right. nto that fun I only run it for bountys.

what ever the 4th one is (the 3v3 teams, can rev players)
this one is so terrabel. I thoguth rumble was bad,m this is so much worse.
not because its bad machancies or any thing, just because I seemed to face nothing but premaid teams XD
agy didn't like it at all.

also whats with every one doing that teabag thing again all of a sudden? I never saw it until today in destiny?
also food for thought..........theres no way they know I am a female..........so there best guess is there doing that to a male........so what does that make them ;D XD

my problem wasn't with the grinding, it was that it lacked the heart that halo had. The game was really short and didn't have much content at launch, and I didn't want to wait months to spend more money on another dlc pack. I was going to keep it, but all the "better on ps4" commercials started to get on my nerves, then sunset overdrive came out and looked awesome so I traded it in.

I enjoyed it. At the end of the day I traded it in because I was considering whether or not to buy it and the destiny commercial came on. "better on ps4". Why should I spend $20 on an expansion that would be better on another console? Especially when the devs rub it into your face every commercial break. Idk, it just pissed me off at the right time. Sunset overdrive is the best next generation game I've played so at least it wasn't wasted.

it wasint even suspied to be on xbone or 360 at first.

but yea theres additional lvs on the ps4 version come the new dlc.

it was announced as a multi plat game.

it was an okay game, didn't have the good enemies that halo was known for. Or the good story. Or the good level design. But I probably would have kept it if it wasn't for the whole "better on ps4" thing. As a 360, ps3, and X1 owner I am frustrated that the devs do not just give extra content to 1 of the 4 systems, but advertise the versions for those consoles as being inferior.

i'm to lazy to find it for you, but I do know at first it was only supsied to be on sony.

as for the other things I cant belive we were playing the same game?
imo the enemys were ether exsactly like or even better then halos enemys. cabal where basickly brutes only cooler.
fallen were baskicly jackels only with more variation.
hive were bascikly flood
vex were an infifntly cooler version of the enemys from halo 4.

the sotry was weak, it was there but you had to go out of your way to find it tho. but yea it could have been better.

I thought the level design was good. I loved the idea of the whole map being available to you threw the patrols so that you could go where ever. there was also a lot of hidden out of the way places. some cvlearly ment to be used latter (like kings port, that place was amazing).

because they are infier tho. at lest hard wear wise. not in this thread but I have brought up stuff before (maybe it was the xbone thread?) showing that games for both xbone and ps4, that the ones on the xbone have to have ether lower fps/rez or such to make the same game.

I doubt you've played halo at this point.

the games version of difficulty was either spamming enemies at you. That is not good level design.

the game was teased long before the ps4 was even announced, back in halo 3:odst. Only a few months before the game came out was it announced that ps4 would get better content.

incorrect, even though the ps4 is slightly more powerful, all current generation games look the same across the board, its just the ports from next Gen that have better framerate/resolution. And some 720 games look better than 1080p games. Ryse was 720(I believe) and it looks better than anything the ps4 had.

More or so to Atlas, it's opinion. Everyone has a different opinion to one another, I personally prefer the Halo enemies, I understand their background, personalities etc. where as with Destiny I feel something is missing. They feel just like an enemy which I know nothing much of where as in Halo it's different and to the way I like it. This isn't a debate which enemies are better, it's all opinion. :)

Agy: ether? that would emply 2? likewise halos difaculty had the same enemys just tuffer. all games do it.

The only thing I find annoying with Destiny is how the bullets go towards your direction, I would like to see a weapon I could use which could do the same thing other than the rocket launcher. Most games to increase difficulty will spam anything with you, including Halo such as an Elite camping with fuel rods/concussion rifle.

I've never heard an actual statement suggesting this, if you could support statement in a PM it'd be appreciated for my own interests as this is new to me and I see it a lot by people who don't know what they're talking about to try proving a point without any solid evidence. If anything it's the older consoles holding back the current consoles, been the case for many years for PC. If this is just speculation from your own you should mention it.

Both consoles for Unity is 900p 30fps, Ubisoft have said it's more to do with the CPU from both consoles which have problems with the crowd so this doesn't suggest the PS4 being pushed back.

Secondly I want the console debate to end now, this topic is about Destiny, not what console is better.

agys getting back to destiny! ^_^ (even tho every one but her got a last word in, just saying ;D)

so last night I did a lv 24 strike with a group of nitwits XD

the oen guy was 2 lvs to low for it (so th eenemys did 50% more damge to him, and he littrly did half damage). the other guy was one lv to low for it (same as me) but I make up for it by no being stupid ^_^

sadly both other people were stupid XD

I litterly soloed the first 2 bosses. that's how useless the other 2 players where XD

3rd boss I had to blantly cheat to beat since there was a number of times that both other players died and left me alone (and if I died that's it we need to restart).

took an about an hour to beat the last boss since I was doing the most damage..............and I wasitn doing that much damage XD

fainly beat it, got no upgrades for it, not sure I am gona bother doing strikes any more, will just stick with pvp XD ^_^

FPS has no affect at all how good the graphics looks. The same pixels are on the screen regardless of FPS.

Higher resolution can make the graphics look better.

But by far, the single biggest thing that affects how good the graphics look is the lighting (created by pixel shaders) and the blending/sampling (GPU), assuming the textures are the same.

Based on hardware specs, the PS4 may look like it has more powerful hardware, but that can be misleading. The some of the PS4 hardware is more powerful than Xbone, some of it is not. Depending on the performance profile of the game, the differences in hardware can either be nullified, or in some cases be better on the Xbox One.

I've never heard an actual statement suggesting this, if you could support statement in a PM it'd be appreciated for my own interests as this is new to me and I see it a lot by people who don't know what they're talking about to try proving a point without any solid evidence. If anything it's the older consoles holding back the current consoles, been the case for many years for PC. If this is just speculation from your own you should mention it.
what's missing is certain amount of synergy that the covenant have and these guys don't. Grunts scatter when you kill the elites. Jackels try to flee from danger. Enemies seem to know where their teammates are and move accordingly. Its hard to explain exactly how they interact, but they seem much more in depth than destinys pinpoint accuracy enemies that just act like basic videogame AI

FPS has no affect at all how good the graphics looks. The same pixels are on the screen regardless of FPS.

Higher resolution can make the graphics look better.

But by far, the single biggest thing that affects how good the graphics look is the lighting (created by pixel shaders) and the blending/sampling (GPU), assuming the textures are the same.

Based on hardware specs, the PS4 may look like it has more powerful hardware, but that can be misleading. The some of the PS4 hardware is more powerful than Xbone, some of it is not. Depending on the performance profile of the game, the differences in hardware can either be nullified, or in some cases be better on the Xbox One.

Secondly I want the console debate to end now, this topic is about Destiny, not what console is better.

tisk tisk tisk craig :O!

I've had enemys scatter when I kill one form sniper fire.

I've had the cabal use those big darn shields as cover for heavy gunner units.

vex use their telly abiltys with disturbing efficiancy

I've had enemys use tactics against me all the time. with much more advanceness then halo has ever thrown at me.
now maybe when halo fianly hits next gen it will get better.

so ether your lieing or the xbone version is that messed up comapired to the ps4 version.

so last night I did a lv 24 strike with a group of nitwits XD

the oen guy was 2 lvs to low for it (so th eenemys did 50% more damge to him, and he littrly did half damage). the other guy was one lv to low for it (same as me) but I make up for it by no being stupid ^_^

sadly both other people were stupid XD

I litterly soloed the first 2 bosses. that's how useless the other 2 players where XD

3rd boss I had to blantly cheat to beat since there was a number of times that both other players died and left me alone (and if I died that's it we need to restart).

took an about an hour to beat the last boss since I was doing the most damage..............and I wasitn doing that much damage XD

fainly beat it, got no upgrades for it, not sure I am gona bother doing strikes any more, will just stick with pvp XD ^_^

Which Strike was this? From my knowledge there's 2 bosses on the earth strike mission which are the Spider tank and eye ball thing. 1 from moon which is the big ogre, 1 from each strike on Venus which is the Nexus and the Archon Priest, and 2 from Mars which is that tank thingy and the big turret person. Yeah the names I've given them are lame but I can't remember their actual names. :P I'm not sure if it's the PS exclusive one but I don't know anything about it, I was just wondering what the exclusive strike is like?

o sorry I should have said the name ^_^

its the one with the 3 generals on mars. the first is the guy with the shield up in the tower.
then the guy in the tank shows up.
then you have to fight your way in and kill the guy with the big chain gun and rocket luncher in the small room ^_^

I used the mini tank thing you can fly to solo the first 2 bosses.
3rd guy was just brutal XD ^_^

with the blantent cheat you can kill the 3rd guy solo too. but it would take some time. ^_^

Destiny's launch was the largest of any new franchise in history and one of the top ten video game launches of all time, said Activision on an earnings call today.

Earning $500 million USD in generated revenue, Destiny is a large part of Activision's record results in Q3 2014.

According to statistics calculated by developer Bungie, players average three hours a day playing the sci-fi shooter on weekdays, adding an hour on the weekends. Since its release, 9.5 million registered users and current players have logged on to Destiny's servers.

Currently, the team is working on future expansion content and the eventual sequel.

"Work has also begun on future expansion packs as well as on our next full game release,"  said Eric Hirshberg, Activision's Publishing CEO. "We're very pleased with the launch and continuing engagement."

Not usual you get an announcement that the sequel is already in development two months since the game came out. Hoping Bungie learns from their mistakes from this game and give a much greater game in the sequel.

yea I was reading somewhere they are thinking of a #2 or such.

they need to fix some issues first imo, like how gear is handed out.

and need to learn how to tell a story, the sotry is there for sure just you really need to go out of your way for it. theres also a lot of missing pices.

and even more interesting to me personaly then the whol darkness thing is the vex and there oriagin, and why they had the black garden locked out of time its self.

bungie already knows how to tell a story. Look at halo, myth, and marathon. I know they lost alot of higher ups when they split to form 343, but there has to be at least someone left who worked on those games. It really is inexcusable how little content there was at launch, its like they didn't even try.

first halo was great imo, after that it went down hill again imo.

but that also assumes its even the same peopel working at begine. theres a good chance theres not.

also at ;laucnh they had a lot more content them many other FPS games i have played.

doing a lot of pvp now for gear (as its the only way to gear.........that at lest somewhat gives me gear).

one of 3 things is happening consitly.
ether 1 theres insane lag that magickly only effects me and only destiny at that
2 theres hacks
3 both.

reason for this belief?
some people one shot me left and right, dipite putting every thing into armor. not even with head shots with a sniper rifle ro any thing, I am talking melee hits and auto rifles and such. meanwhile agy taks 2 hits to kill people with melee XD

I have seen countless times now me empty shotguns into people and them not take a single hit. then they turn around and oen shot me.......
the one time found a lv 4, had a direct hit form cvlose range with all 3 shells, and then I hit him 2x with my melee attack, I even heard the hits cvonnect........didn't take any damage then oen shot me with melee.........yarr

I strangle constantly get post mortom badges a lot, expiacly close range attacks.........even when it shows me as having killed the other guy first before my name shows up as beiung killed XD

seen some people constily have there super ready to go. latterly watched them use it, then a sec latter after its doen use it again.

any who, hacks and cheats aside. agys other issue.

I hate warlocks, there so silly over powered. that seems to be the consense online too............sadly this has resulted in me seeing almost nothing but warlocks now in pvp.....yarr

titans anny me too, not as bad as warlocks but there close.

the only time hunters bother me is when they use blade dancer. but if there not cheating that doesint come up that oftin (I would know.........as I am that spec too). but other wise horribly under powered. as well as seems to be the concenses online as well.......yarr

anywho getting some gear now. but at the rate I am going I am going to be able to buy a full set of purple gear before I get a full set of lv 20 blues............silly destainy............yarr!

^_^

so found a new hack/cheat today in destany pvp..........la sigh

so was playing rumble (the 3v3 team.i think thats what its called)

we ran right into the enemy and somehow, a lock on there team not onyl got behind us, but managed to kill us all easly.

kinda thoguht it was strange that he somehow got behind us with out me noticing but i didn tthink to much of it.

match went on and i kept my eye on him, sure enough he did not show up on my radar.........at all.......ever.......

thoguth maybe he just magickly kept stealthed that whole time, nope even runnign around i never saw him on the radar once.

whole match, never once showed up on the rador. was a huge pain.........yarr

on less cheaty notes. i got a lv 20 main weapon finaly. and an assult rifle at that, first time i had seen one in a while.
havew been using the gun you get form beating the main campain.

was so happy becuse it did a lot more damage not even upgraded, then the fuilly upgraded gun i had.......problem is i got spoiled with the currrent guns stabilty. and the assult rifle littelry had half the stabilty.

so as i tryed to hit people my shots woukld go all over the place. it was sad. even worse no upgrades on the gun for stabilty.
so sadly its the current gun i have for now till i find a new one. i like the pulse rifle i have, but mainly becuse of its silly high stabilty and the full auto mode it has ^_^!

ugh agy needs a lv 20 gun so bad, running around doing end game stuff with a very low lv weapon XD

I got sonys equivalent to a "code 4" last night playing destiny, was silly XD

anywho, things agy hates in da pvp!

a lv 4 2 shoted me with an assult rifle.........what!?

titans and warlocks can insta shut down both of my supers.........brillent game balance there beingie.

titans and warlocks supers are insta cast. both of my suoers require me latterly drawing every oens attention to me as I do a he-man like "I HAS DA POWA!" stance and lights flash every where and then I ether have to A: aim and pray I hit someone with my losy 3 shots form a magnum that aims like a big .50 cal magniume (the whoel time I glow and have lgiths flashing). or B: I grow bright blue and pray I make it to with in melee range to hit people as I get whaled on by every one form a distance
so agys kinda not supirsed she so rarly sees hunters any more. its mostly locks, o and as this happens locks and titans can insta cast there supers and kill me...........yarr

I feel like def does nothing......at lest for me XD

I am seeing a lot of lag cheats going on. I try to report them but idk that ti does any thing.

i'm tired of deipite have great armor, and pushing my armor up in the stats screen (and there by lowering my recovery and agilty). I oftin get one/2 shoted by most people..........yarr.

it feels like a lot of the time a lot of people have perfect aim, even with guns that have insane kick back (like shot guns). meanwhile agy feels like shes playing X-com where I shot someone a foot from me, dead in my cross hairsd with my shot gun............and it misses........what? .........yarr

Use them for about a week and then when you start to develop good accuracy with them and roughly know how long it takes to charge up your personal one and you upgrade it then I guarantee its easy kills, Best ve ever done with it in a game was 52 kills and 7 deaths

good news every one, if you have preordred, or do (I think). the exspasion pass for destiny then you get a free pruple lv bike to use. and can buy more for your other charictors ^_^

kk now the bad news........................wow I thought I hate how one sided reg pvp was, then I played iron banner XD

latterly one shoted by people left and right XD
some people are also creepy good at aiming in this game, in the time it takes me to aim and try to lien up a shot, I am already shot in the head and killed. i'm no grand master at pvp, but I am not useless ether so this just seems strange to me.

I thgouth it might be lag on my end. but destnay now has a gage to show how bad people are lagging, I latterly have max good band with. know who I lose to the most? people with bad band with..............

so agys taken to reporting people left and right now for bad lag. its bs to shot at someone and have them skip/telly all over the map due to bad lag and me die because they can see me just fine but I cant see them from there own lag..................


speaking of server issues...............if I get droped one more time right in the middle of a strike or pvp match, agy may just walk. I have had it with losing 20/30 mins due to destnay servers messing up..................

on the plus side I got a pruple shotgun, cute little thing..............at lest I thgouht so till I realzed for some reason its pump action.............I kid you not they gave me a pump action shot gun.............that latterly uses an animation of me pumping the shot gun, so I cant fire it fast like my old one. XD really destiny? XD

game is cra cra ^_^

No whether it's real or not it just nails the message home, don't use share play with people you don't know and trust, which is good advice for most things in gaming, don't give out admin, or let people have the ability to mess your games up.
