Destiny Daily 12/18/14: Daily Bounties, Xur Arrives Tomorrow, Iron Banner Continues

destiny-daily-dark

I took my newly created alt Hunter from level 13 to 20 yesterday. The moment she hit 20, I equipped the new Vanguard armor I had purchased plus the Knucklehead Radar helmet to get her to 30 instantly. I then gave her my Ice Breaker and set about soloing the first two sections of Crota's End. I scored some energy from the chest, shards and the gloves from traversing the abyss, and energy again for crossing the bridge. I came out of there with five shards after dismantling the gloves, and I still had three or four before I went in, so I was able to upgrade the gloves again on my main. I then saw my brother was online, in orbit not doing anything, so I got him to start and solo the raid with my level 27 Warlock tagging along; energy and a bond from the chest, shards from the abyss and shards … [Read more...]

Destiny Daily 12/17/14: Daily Bounties, The Husk of the Pit Assault Rifle

destiny-daily-dark

Yesterday was a pretty good day for me in Destiny. I did the first two sections of the raid solo; I got some shards and the exotic rocket launcher Dragon's Breath from the first chest. After traversing the abyss, I got some more shards and another pair of the raid gauntlets (which I dismantled for more shards). After crossing the bridge, I got some energy and the raid chest piece. So now I have three pieces of raid gear and upgraded helmet, so my getting to 32 is now just a matter of getting radiant shards (I used the only seven I had yesterday to level up my gloves once). Now I only need 56 more and I'll be 32. So in March when the House of Wolves comes out and the level cap gets increased again, I'll be just about to 32. I did the Nightfall with my brother and I got an upgraded … [Read more...]

Destiny Gets New 1.14MB Hotfix 1.1.0.2; You Can Now Replay Fist of Crota

destiny-dark-below

Destiny has just gotten a new hotfix, and before a lot of you freak out, it isn't to make the first sections of the raid unable to do solo (that's probably still coming though, unfortunately). Here are the patch notes: 1.1.0.2 : The one that followed Expansion I. This update corrects some issues that were introduced to Destiny with the release of The Dark Below. We are also continuing to support the Destiny sandbox with changes that were identified prior the launch of Expansion I. General Fixed a typo in the German word for 'Radiant Energy' Weapons General Fixed an issue in which some weapon projectiles were improperly penetrating Hive shields Pocket Infinity Rolled back changes induced by a previous Exotic weapon update Charge up and … [Read more...]

Destiny Daily 12/16/14: The Iron Banner Returns,The Summoning Pits Await in the Weekly Heroic & Nightfall, Daily Bounties

destiny-daily-dark

Today we get to earn Marks once again, plus head back to the Summoning Pits for the Nightfall. That's an easy one; well it's easy if you cheese it (which I recommend). The Iron Banner has also returned for those who care. I don't really see the point since none of the gear will help get you to 32. I'll skip it and focus my attention on the PVE. Having said that, doing the Iron Banner bounties is a great way to level up weapons and armor. You will need The Dark Below expansion to do the Iron Banner. We have a lot to get to today, so here are the bounties for 12/16: BOUNTY DESCRIPTION + REP / + EXP Relic Harvest - Cosmodrome Collect 200 Sensor Mites in Cosmodrome. 50 / 2500 One For All Achieve Gold Tier Rating in Public Events. 100 / 5000 Exalted Hive Kill 10 … [Read more...]

Destiny Daily 12/15/14: Daily Bounties, Last Day Before The Weekly World Reset

destiny-daily-dark

Friday I ran the first two sections of Crota's End solo, and picked up the raid gauntlets and boots. You need 21 Radiant Shards (which can only be gotten from the Crota's End raid) to fully upgrade just one of those. I have two Radiant Shards and seven Ascendant Energies. I may be able to get the chest armor, but grinding that out to get 63 total Radiant Shards to be able to hit level 32 is going to take me FOREVER. What I really want is the Black Hammer sniper rifle, because it makes my beloved Ice Breaker practically obsolete. This weekend, I ranked up with the Vanguard and gave my commendation to my level 28 Titan. I used his marks to purchase The Devil You Don't handcannon. It's nice, but I prefer The Devil You Know, simply because 12 rounds is better than five (with a chance for six … [Read more...]

Destiny Daily 12/12/14: Xur Has Truth If You’re Willing to Seek It, Exotic Upgrades, Daily Bounties, & More

destiny-daily-dark

It's Xurday! Yesterday I was out patrolling in the Rocket Yard killing some Hive. I one-shotted a Knight in the face with my trusty favorite primary weapon, The Devil You Know, and out popped a shiny purple orb... also known as a Legendary Engram. This is like the sixth legendary engram that I've gotten this week, after weeks of never seeing one. But this one was the first one to drop out in the world and not be a reward from a Daily/Weekly/Package. It was for a primary weapon. I was really hoping it'd be for a legendary handcannon, preferably an upgraded The Devil You Know if such a thing even exists, but instead it was an expansion assault rifle called "For the People." It has a small 26 mag clip, high rate of fire, and low impact. Nice to have, I guess, but I'm not going to use it … [Read more...]

A ReView From the Rafters: NXT Takeover: R Evolution (12/11/14)

takeover3-review

During the pre-show, Corey Graves announced that due to multiple concussions, doctors have forced him to retire of in-ring competition. But, WWE wants to keep him around, and so Corey Graves is now an announcer in NXT, and as a matter of fact he worked the Takeover event with Rich Brennan and Alex Riley. Kevin Owens vs. CJ Parker - A strong debut for Owens. It took a nasty shot that busted him open, but it just added to the moment. The crowd was way into Owens, and because of it his debut came across as the big deal it should have been. Hard hitting, intense, and impressive. It wasn't very long, and it didn't need to be. I think Kevin Owens has a BIG future in WWE. CJ did get in some offense, so this wasn't a complete squash. Winner: Kevin Owens via pinfall in a little over three … [Read more...]

Destiny Daily 12/11/14: Daily Bounties, Xur Arrives Tomorrow So Have Your Shards and Coins Ready

destiny-daily-dark

Yesterday I ran the Nightfall, twice with the same character. First I did it solo, which took two hours including the times I stopped to take a break and grab lunch. My reward was an non-expansion exotic helmet for a Titan which I just dismantled for an exotic shard. Last night, I ran with my brother (level 29) and it only took an hour, but that point I had upgraded the damage of my new arc sniper and my arc rocket launcher. He got 11 Ascendant Energies (he needs shards to upgrade his gear). After that, we did the daily (we both got energy), and I took him to the new raid to show him the first chest. Since it's a random spawn, we had to wipe a few times before it showed up. He got radiant energy AND the Playstation exclusive exotic shotgun The 4th Horsemen out of that chest. He'll never … [Read more...]

Destiny Daily 12/10/14: Daily Bounties, The Dark Below Thoughts (Non-Spoiler)

destiny-daily-dark

Well yesterday was a great day in Destiny. I had been saving up Ascendant Shard's since I've had the gear I was fine with being a "Forever 29," so I bought new arms and leg armor from the Hunter mentor, and did the three new story missions, some quests, some bounties, and some patrol plus farming on the Moon. I was able to pretty quickly completely upgrade both of them, and that FINALLY got me to light level 30. I also ranked up to 10 with the Vanguard and got their commendation currency. That allowed me to buy the chest piece; so now I'm well on my way to being a Forever 31. I also got the expansion legendary sniper rifle LDR 5001 (arc damage) from ranking up with the Vanguard. I received two legendary engrams yesterday; one after completing the daily and one for completing the Weekly … [Read more...]
