All guns have the same perks.

I can use blue guns rather than purple or exotics. In fact some of the blue guns are better.

Never thought I'd say this, but I am done. I'll dip in and out every now and then for the gunplay, but it's the casual crying babies have killed this game.

Forever 29!

I agree with Rip Curl but will still keep playing as I have made some good friends that I still meet up with.

The lacking power level is of no consequence is it?...most people would be close to 295 so power makes no difference anyway. (+/-10 power)

It's only a pain when you're losing.

Haven't used a scout rifle for ages in PvP as I'm having too much fun with the Cuboid ARu (and Last Hope combo).

Wonder what delights Xur has for us today? More exotics that we all already have?

Would rather it be a selection of legendaries tbh but then you need something to play for.


Edit: What is everyone's favourite weapon combo?

I think I could pretty much do any content with Nameless Midnight/Origins Story, Uriels Gift/The Number and the raid rocket launcher or sword.

I really don't think I need anything else except for very specific encounters e.g. Calus I would use Coldheart for skulls and boss DPS.

I have never used a sniper except to test once and pretty much same with shotguns (still trying Acrius) and occasionally try a random weapon for fun such as a Handcannon/Sidearm or Wardcliffe.

PvP would probably be Antiope & Uriels / Last Hope...sometimes Cubiod or Origin Story instead of Antiope , maybe a Scout every now and then. Heavy is always Quickfang.

PVE - Nameless Midnight & Uriels for general stuff (Occasional Better Devils so at least I can change things up a bit), then specific heavy depending on situation.

I really really hope they do something and take all the constructive criticism by the community and change things for the DLC in December, like a TTK kind of shake up, because I played the death out of D1 and loved it, maybe thats the problem, i played too much D1.

EDIT: I used to like using MIDA scout in D1 occasionally....I can't bear the sound of it now.

What is there to play for after Tuesday milestone reset? I can't even be arsed to grind public events looking for exotics as all it does is fill all my slots with useless 294 gear.

I'm 304.8 light and the only thing that can get me to 305 is a new helmet and a new arm and I have 5 chances per week of getting them. This week I got 2 chest pieces and 2 weapons so am still 304 with just the nightfall to go.

Iron Banter is completely pointless, just more useless 294 light gear.

Maybe I'm playing this wrong and need to get more in touch with my feminine side and concentrate on collecting matching armour sets and shaders instead?

Nothing Stella....that's it pretty much it.

The enjoyable grind / farm for nice weapons perks has gone. I am not talking about getting god roll perks, but perks that you liked to used. I used to love doing that, it fits with my OCD.

So you're left with Shaders and Armour sets that really don't add anything other than cosmetics.

Strikes are useless, I can play a couple for enjoyment, but get nothing rewarding at the end. Public events, again I can do the flashpoints, but after doing that on all three characters, I am done with them too.

I mean some people say at least you don't have to bike everywhere you can fast travel, but again that's another example of how they have completely killed the essence of what D1 was about for the casual crying kid.

EDIT: I haven't even finished the milestones on one character this week, nevermind all three.

All useless to me as I have them all already. That's saved me a trip to Nessus

I still have Call to Arms to do on one character too so that'll be fun

Seriously, last night I got on late and joined the party just as the others were calling it a night. I sat and looked at my 3 characters for a good minute trying to find the motivation to play and just couldn't summon it so I ended up watching netflix instead.

I've not been on it for a week now. I might pop on at some point this weekend, but have moved on to Ghost Recon: Wildlands (which is surprisingly fun, if a little too big and repetitive).

You're not alone. I will probably dip in a bit later and see if I can motivate myself to try and do some of the milestones, doubt I will do the call to arms one though. Although I believe it updates from Iron Banana, not even been into that yet.

I am looking forward to going over to see the missus next week in Stockholm, we said we'd start Divinity Original Sin together, she prefers playing local CO-OP rather than over live. I promised her I wouldn't start it, I SO WANT to start it right now!

Yeah, I'm the same. Took a week off to see if I'd miss it & I haven't. Completing the Raid is the only thing that would motivate me but the late-night time-slot isn't an option at the moment unfortunately.

Not complaining though as I already feel like I've had my monies worth during that intense first 3-4wks of very enjoyable gameplay.

At least I need Knucklehead.

Only have 1 char left to get to 305 as was lucky with drops this week on the other two.

That's how I feel. I've easily had my money's worth out of it, despite not doing the raid or any nightfalls (I don't have the time or patience for the former).

The raid

Seriously though if you can get 6 together and just open the very first door that leads to the first encounter each week on each character you will get a power engram, so another chance at a 300 power piece of armour or weapon
