Anyone gotten any level 41 strike that is not the Rasputin Warmind strike with the shank at the end?


Played 5 times and that is the only strike that comes up and its damned near impossible at 298.

The light level for us yes. But the raid is not going up in level...And the hard level can drop 330 or 335 gear.

I'll be on tonight after work about 5:30 Eastern if anyone wants to run some of the new content, or even anything from TTK as I have a few quests on my Hunter and Warlock to finish up.

Well... overall had a fun week so far with the update. PoE challenge mode is super easy this week but I expect it to get harder as the modifiers changed.

I love the new infusion mechanic.

The last time I raided was in January so there was a pretty big learning curve on the new methods for golgoroth challenge and Oryx fight.

Think I will just be farming PoE challenge for exotic drops tonight with 3oC before the reset.

Possible info about the next expansion.

http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/20...a-release-date

Quote:
Curious Destiny fans have spotted a clue that points to a possible 20th September release date for the game's next big expansion.

1
Rezyl Azzir's new Grimoire lore card.
The recent, enjoyable but limited April update includes a mysterious new piece of lore, hidden inside a Dead Ghost, which can be found in the Prison of Elders.

It's unlikely you'd find the item by chance so it seemed strange when, just 16 minutes after Bungie pushed the April update live, a walkthrough on how to find it popped up on Reddit.

The walkthrough was published by a Reddit user under the name of Rezyl Azzir, who had somehow downloaded the update, completed a full Prison of Elders run, and just happened to find the hidden object and posted a walkthrough about it. All in 16 minutes.

Other players were, unsurprisingly, stunned. But when they looked at where in the game the poster described, they too found the collectible. The lore it contained? It details a character named Rezyl Azzir, and a short story about his life during the founding of the game's City.

But as more fans found the item, the Rezyl Azzir from Reddit disappeared. The user deleted his post and his account, too.

However, Redditors were quick to spot a message in Latin posted by Azzir, shortly before the account was removed:

"Vegisima die mensis noni. ILLUD est venturus. Per Audacia ad astra."
Translated by Latin-speaking Destiny players, this becomes:

"The twentieth day of the ninth month. IT is coming. Forward, to the stars."
Bungie has previously spoken of its next big Destiny expansion. It's coming in September, just like The Taken King last year.

The developer signed off its most recent weekly blog update with word of what is coming:

"The next point on the horizon is an update we're cooking up for the Fall," community manager Deej wrote. "I've seen it. I'm excited about it. I will say no more... For now.

"Hopefully, the ramp up to the April Update served up some proof that we love speaking at length about new Destiny content, once it arrives at its final form. Later on this summer, we'll show you the scope, scale, and flavour for the next challenge you'll face."

As for what it will be? Well, fans have a theory.

A new Mars area was apparently once due for inclusion in The Taken King, and the arrival of fresh Cabal aliens would fit with the Mars-living race's storyline in that expansion.

The race was seen fighting the Taken more fiercely than any other, and at one point there is a direct reference to the Cabal Empire - during a mission where a distress call is sent back to the race's high command, located somewhere outside the Solar System.

Bungie has yet to fully feature the Cabal in a major add-on to the game after the Hive-centric Dark Below and Fallen-centric House of Wolves. The first DLC pack originally planned for this year (before this DLC plan was scrapped) would have centred around the Cabal, in an add-on titled Forge of the Gods.

It may be we finally see story and settings from this DLC, and from the early Taken King plans, come this 20th September.

Would've liked to see a Cabal themed expansion, but Fallen is fine too.

the leak is also bringing up talk about Destiny 2 being rebooted and Luke has been move to be in charge of this one too. I'm holding hope this is a turn for the better than worse. but does not bode well for the story if Destiny 1 is any indication as it was 'rebooted' a year before launch too. :-/

May as well post here instead of starting a new thread.

This may seem like an odd question, but how does one maximize enjoyment of Destiny? I played the beta but left unimpressed and didn't pick it up then. Now, being utterly burned out on The Division, ESO, Diablo 3, Fallout 4, etc. I decided to give it another chance. The strange thing is I'm not sure if I'm having fun playing or if I'm just trudging and grinding in the hope that it will get better.

While I prefer PvE to PvP, I'm finding the whole narrative structure of story missions confusing and aggravating. I think part of it is due to using the level 25 boost on my character which I assume opened things up to that level when I was still on the second quest of the original story. My Warlock is 34 now and a gameplay pattern is emerging that I just can't put time into anymore. Is Destiny's focus endgame and one should just rush to 40? If so, is there enough PvE content to sustain long term play, or is it all farming dailies, doing the same thing every reset to hopefully find a piece of marginally better gear?

I was in the same boat as you. I played the beta and didn't feel it. Then my wife got me the game for xmas last year and I've been hooked ever since. Probably the most time I've spent in a single game besides CoD4.
The endgame content is pretty good. You can do dailies, weekly nightfall, raids, prison of elders, weekly heroic strikes. They've changed the loot system so you can get better stuff much quicker than the original grind. For me, the raids is where I spend my time.

Thanks for the response. Is it fairly easy to get together with others for raids? Every MMO I've played I only raided with guildmates and almost always the same group, and the idea of a pub raid was laughable. I assume asking in a social area doesn't work since I've never heard another player use their mic there.

It's not too hard to find others to raid with. The community is still very active. I use destinylfg.com and reddit fireteams to find randoms to ran thru with.
Pretty much everyone I've ran a raid with has been cool about it.

The leak says the release date is only for PS4 and Xbone. Is PS3 and 360 support going bye bye?
