How do you even get enhancement cores? I have one but I have no idea where I got it from.

[up]A very odd one, if so. The hardcore fans certainly seem to love the changes, but its certainly a discouraging grind for the casuals.

Would you believe I never fully watched the original Indiana Jones trilogy? I gotta correct that someday.

They should have just left it at Rise of Iron levels, the game had it down then.

[up][up] TBH Other then the infusion costs its pretty good right now, but adding masterwork cores to them made them some kind of bullshit.

[up]...So then as a player without Forsaken's content, I'm screwed - only way I'll ever get Enchancement cores is by dismantling the stuff I've already invested in.

Yeah, I think it's time to uninstall.

Light level requirements for the Forges have been lowered by a server side change effective immediately.

More significant changes are coming and will be detailed Thursday but Bungie says this is what they could so on short notice

Oh really when?

No? Masterwork weapons drop from every vendor, planet, engram, its just a roll of the dice.

Not necessarily things you already invested in.

And so, I finally complete the forge quest. And during my endeavour, I find a Cerberus+1 during one of my attempts. Now I can rest.

Just watch out for Ghalak the forge warden. One more heads up, the place is also crawling with Demonic Spiders.

Edit: Time and the abilities of the boss escalate him from being a Goddamned Boss to That One Boss.

Bungie is ending its partnership with Activision and will self-publish the Destiny franchise going forward.

We're free.

We better not be getting more monetizations then.

Jan 10th 2019 at 1:41:58 PM

We are probaly going to start seeing more annual passes, and less Tess.

I also suspect destiny 3 will be pushed back to the next console generation, since that is aproaching within a year or two... and it is easier to build on an exsiting game then to make a new one every two years.

Indeed. Also gives Bungie the opportunity to push the envelope more.

I just saw the news on You Tube about the split between Bobby Kotick's company and Bungie. Most Tubers are extremely pleased.

But will it really make all that much difference to this game? The monetization genie is out of the bottle, it's going to be a real bitch to put it back in.

As long as Bungie stops making it so prevalent with level ups and stuff.

There is the issue of whether they've fixed the severe developmental problems facing them.

I really hope this is good news, and I really hope that it lets them get their shit together and make a game that's actually, y'know, any fucking good. My goodwill is still low though.

Presumably a load of you are still actually playing it, I see one or two of you on PSN now and then. How is it now? I muted the Discord channel some time ago out of equal parts not caring about the game more and not *wanting* to care about the game any more, so I'm very out of the loop. Last I heard things were still problematic though.

It's really good now. Exotics drop like candy for the most part and I'm always finding new stuff to do. Forsaken was really good too.

I dunno about the exotics dropping like candy but it's in a much better place than it ever has been before.

There's still a few weird hiccups here and there in the economy and loot stream but Bungie's on the right track and I feel really good going forward.

Especially since we've still got two more expansions in the annual pass left to see.

I'm mainly speaking from my own experience; playing through all the expansions and stuff I grabbed a ton of either Exotics or quests that would lead to them.

Oppisite experiance here, since forsaken droped I have gotten 3 exotics dispite playing almost every day, and 2 of them are dupes.

But yea, other then the infusion economy specificly, and the way exotics drop now..... Its pretty damn good, honestly its some where just behind Rise of Iron but ahead of every other point of Destiny 1.

There is now lots of things to do, enough content to keep you busy, and if aren't trying to keep a specific set of gear up to date the advancment rate is pretty good.

They turned things around quite a bit with war mind, then really knocked it out the park with forsaken.
