Got logged in long enough to do the first mission and get a kinetic grenade launcher drop.

I also picked up one of the finishers and a witherhoard ornament.

Checked out transmog, shaders, etc. Neat UI updates too.

Also seeing a lot of reports that cross-play was enabled. PC players could only join consoles via invite. Saw a spot in the dashboard thing for legacy raids and content.

The UI stuff seems super useful, indeed. Tracking all bounties automatically in nav mode? How long have we been asking for that!

The guns seem cool, the area's in the activity seem cool but man, the "run playlist activities to get currency X so that you can run the new activity and open chests to get currency Y to upgrade the thing so you can make getting currency X and Y easier" model is just not fun.

Just want to do VoG.

So much this. Its only been out a day though and the story elements with Mithraks and the Eliksni moving to the city has huge potential.

Transmog from what I understand is bullshit.

I change my look like twice a year so i'm having a hard time getting upset about it. Personal thing, i guess. Warlock looking pretty sick as it is if I do say so myself. :-P

It's there in the background... it just kind of comes along as I do other things. For me it's not any big deal because I'm not paying much attention to it. I'm really bummed Ada isn't bringing some more Black Armory stuff to the table so I could get my ship somehow ;) but past that we've all covered the transmog issue pretty well.

Now that I've messed with the system, I like it in principal. I just don't like the costs associated with it as I find them very limiting.

Yep, system seems nice. I toyed with it. Unfortunately, I already like how my Warlock looks. That means I have no desire to use such a restricted system.

New Exotic Sidearm Quest is possibly bugged, waiting to see if it gets mentioned in today's TWaB. Probably going to shelf it for now.



--

New Stasis Aspects and Fragments... sounds like Bungie still loves Hunters in PvP:



--

Farming Ether or Decrypted Data?

So here it is. I unlocked "Unstoppable Grenade launcher." 7 energy slots are what it takes (?!?!) and it's steep but guess what works?

I have two words for you: Unstoppable Witherhoad. :D

It's a new day, folks.

We were taking the other night about unstoppable Anarchy being basically the only way to do GMs efficiently. Witherhoard could be fun too for some of the lower level stuff.

Also I'm missing anti barrier sniper something fierce. That was such a good mod.

6 energy slots was pretty rough... 7 for made launcher is insane. Realistically I don't expect to use it much. Anti barrier sniper should be a standard despite that really just because of what it is. It just makes sense.

When you have masterworked armor it's not bad.

Legendary Lost Sector today is dropping Legs (5-13-21). All the new Exotics are Legs. EDZ, Scavenger's Den, Solar burn, Arc shields (and only on Boss), 2 Barrier Servitors-3 Overload Champs. Solar nades do a fair amount of work on the Overloads, but something with good burst damage is still needed. Xeno or a Solar Rocket Launcher if you have it.

Go get your new EXOTICS!!

I typically masterwork all my gear, but 7 does seem a little excessive to me. I mean, what else are you gonna plug in there? A reload mod, a recov mod, overload handcannon? It isn't like having the extra space is going to buy you much of anything, so why restrict it? I do see that the mod is going to be nuts though. Definitely looking forward to that mod with anarchy/salvo.

On another note, I tried watching some videos on the transmog nonsense and even went through the quest, and I still don't understand it if I'm being honest. It seems like something that has so much potential, but I just won't end up taking part in it due to the restrictions. Such a shame.

Also, don't think I really noticed any difference with Frenzy on last seasons smg. It still feels great, so that's a plus.

Unfortunately, masterworking armor is almost prohibitively expensive. I have one set that is and that's all I run unless I need something specialized. The cost to go from 9 energy slots to 10 is straight bullshit. When they were going to sunset armor, I had zero plans to ever masterwork armor again.

Spent my couple days off working on most the new content. Got the new Aspect and two of the new fragments done on all 3 characters. 4 upgrades on the Servitor for Override. All but one of the new Seasonal challenges. The new Exotic Legs on all 3 characters thanks to yesterday's Lost Sector. Transmoged 8 Ornaments so far (no Silver spent). Annnd... spent a sheet ton at Eververse for Archived Ornaments; Bungie loves me.

Now, back to 70-85 hour weeks.

Only had time to run 2 characters through Trials last night. Both SMG's had meh rolls. The "join" command has been disabled in chat because it was allowing Crossplay before Bungie intended it (and this was their "fix"), so we had to do individual invites. Bit of a pain. Didn't get a single 3 win. Still don't know why I do this to myself.

I'll probably just suicide the one bounty before it's up. That's all it's worth to me.

Old farted my way to 3 Shayura"s Wraths over the weekend. All three... craptastic rolls. One has Dynamic Sway Reduction, I may play around with it.

I see Bungie disabled Bungie.net, and DIM by extension. Any idea what is going on there? I haven't found any news as of yet.

https://twitter.com/BungieHelp/status/1394223173021831171?s=20 Hours ago. Still not restored. Now they are doing some other maintenance too. I can still play but the rest of that isn't working still.

Legendary lost sector is on the tangled shore today. It says it's dropping boots......but it's dropping helmets. Bugs are really killing this season so far. Between that and joining folks using /join not working. Dumb.

For those of you that are into finishing masterworks. Go get the new sidearm one done. It's currently bugged? maybe in that it needs energy weapon kills to progress the final catalyst part. 700 to be exact. I just loaded into Shattered Throne with a subsistence gnawing hunger and went to town ez pz.

If it is a bug and bungie fixes it.....700 kills with that sidearm......OOF.

I am just trying to finish up calibration data. I spent some time in Shattered Throne and killed a lot of Taken and didn't see any movement. I used gnawing hunger. No big deal but I was interested in trying this.

Calibration data can ONLY be done in playlists. So strikes, gambit, crucible.

Combatants = PVE
Guardians = PVP

Make sure you have the lvl 22 season pass thingy as it makes the PVP part only like 13 kills? and the combatants part only like 30ish kills.

My word. Just had a Gambit match where none of the motes I banked counted. Nothing. 0 banked motes. None.

Also, you guys hear of the cheese where a team can drop like 6+ large blockers at once? Ya, that apparently still works.

Turning it off. I think I'm done for the week.
