Alright I checked & the collection does inflict both Forsaken & the Year 2 stuff & the discounts only in till the 17th this month.
..... Hmmmh decisions. Well I already got the base game for free & while I did spend only 20 bucks on Osiris & Warmind, 20 bucks isnít much.
The issue is if I buy the collection & then Shadowkeep then thatís 75 dollars. Decisions.
Well I can probably hold off Shadowkeep for a later date I guess.

Shadowkeep doesn't come out until September, you've got plenty of time to save up or change your mind entirely
Huh oh right.
Maybe I'll consider getting a Forsaken/Shadowkeep bundle if/when such a thing exists.
To be fair, for new players lacking my cynicism, the complete collection is a really good deal.

Yeah, you're buried in Exotic and Legendary weapon questlines these days.
Or, at least, I am.
Not gonna lie, I too felt like Destiny 2 was deeply and fundamentally flawed in the beginning. While I still feel like I don't quite like it as much as I did D1 by the end of it, I do think it's a good enough game to start playing again. And it can only get better from here, by the looks of it. At least I'm willing to hope so.
Yeah, it's a lot better than it was to start out with, and even at the end of Year One after the Osiris and Rasputin DL Cs.
Do Raids have matchmaking or do you have to manually form a team beforehand?
If I remember right, you need a pre-formed team, and then once you've cleared it, you get access to a matchmaking/LFG option.
Which is another thing I wish they'd fucking change. Alright, yes, of course a preformed group is going to perform better (probably, no guarantees even with in-game LFG/party builder, if my experience in FFXIV is anything to go by), but if people want to matchmake with randos just let them. Don't limit player choice, even if those choices are bad, just let the players make them.
That was changed before warmind, raids do have a matchmaking feature but PUGs are so bad at doing them that the ques are 4+ hours long because no one is stupid enough to do it.

Even the old raids were pretty difficult to pull off unless you got lucky with your LF Gs, and with them becoming more and more complicated I strongly doubt your chances of success with any more than a couple randoms is very high. That being said I always advocate more in game LFG options, but you can't control how bad the players are.
Not to mention a lot of people on the LFG sites are super elitist. In some of them you have to have a certain weapon/armor piece/build and they'll kick you if you don't have it.
It's funny because I started using the app to coordinate raid teams, finally able to play them after months being unable to. It's hit or miss in terms of team quality, I've tried to clear Spire of Stars four times and haven't been able to do so because other people bail. The mechanics of the raids are such that you need a full team and all be communicating in voice chat (usually discord), Spire of Stars is especially brutal. At one point 4 people need to be standing on different trigger plates and 2 people go into a teleporter, other raids you can manage with a team of 4 if necessary. Scourge of the Past is the simplest one so far, much of it can be done with quick in-game chat codes.
Alright I got the pack. What happens now, do I get some loot, how does that level up work?
Also trying to finish Warmind before going to Forsaken but I'm not sure what to do next.
Now comes the numbers game really. You just get stronger weapons and armor and you'll get better numbers and get more powerful, though Forsaken raises the level cap to 50.
Can you tell me how to finish Warmind? Cause nothings popping up & I know I'm not done yet, I haven't fought the Worm.

Really? Hm. Maybe try talking to Ana?
If you have the AP and have beaten Forsaken, you immediately unlock a questline that gets you level 690 gear (all blues! Don't dismantle!) to give you a headstart on the grind for Powerful Gear.
And yeah, Forsaken is worth it. I was planning on putting out a huge writeup on all the new shit it brought to the table and how fun it is, but looking at the changes, there's just so much to talk about that I honestly have trouble covering it all. I encourage any Y1 players on the fence about taking the plunge to look up changelists on the web, but here's some highlights I've selected on my own:
Basically, Forsaken is the point where most of the fanbase went "holy shit this game is actually fun now". It's the one part of the game I've played so far that actually felt worth paying for (and it was the only part of the game I actually needed to pay for, so I guess that works out!). I encourage you to try it out.
Didn't they add something where if I can make a new character & immediately level them up to 30 & skip the base campaign?
Cause I've always wanted to branch out to other classes but I don't want to redo everything again.
Check on any purple quest lines in your pursuits tab. Sometimes there is a resource grinding as part of the story.
But yeah, Forsaken is basically everything Destiny should be. A long campaign, a progressive story with distinct characters and lots of content including two new locations. Unfortunately the raid falls into the same trap at Destiny 1 where it is technically the conclusion of the story, rather than a separate mini-campaign of its own. But it has a mostly satisfying mid-point conclusion that much of the Dreaming City feels like an epilogue.
Yeah, the raid thing is actually the reason I mentioned when I brought up the final boss of the campaign. Won't say any more than that because spoilers.
(Techincally the rest of the Dreaming City has another final boss after the raid... but that's also spoilers. >_>)
That level boost is good if you already have a character at level 30 and want to level up another one, yeah. I'd still suggest getting a free exotic from the campaign on Titan first, though.
We all really need to try and coordinate for a raid sometime
You telling me.
I was never able to do that kaiju final mission of Taken King cause it was a Raid.
We'd all have to be on the same platform for that, unless y'all are willing to wait for Shadowkeep. (I'm on PC, for the record.)
Alright I finished Warmind, turns out I just didn't notice that the next mission was on Earth.
So before I start Forsaken after I go to sleep, where do I go or do for some pretty loot?
Cause I'm tired of my Warlock looking drab as fuck & I wanna start a story heavy DLC in style.
Plus I just wanna stick with Exotic and Legendary gear. I'm tired of always switching back to drabber Rare gear.
