Finished the campaign with EvilMonkey last night. Came out of it at 292. Took just over 2 hours from the point where we met Sloane on Titan for the first time. Poor old Thermos Flask didn't get any support, he was dead before the voice over dude had finished telling us to kill him. Main guy at the end took a bit longer, maybe a minute as we ran out of power ammo but one refill of the Wardcliff Coil soon sorted him out.

Just in time to join the monarchy today on the outside chance that they win the faction rally thing

FWC will win as there is a bug where you keep getting rewards after 30 engrams where the other two just drop shaders.

Luckily their weapons are pretty good.

Well I'm hedging my bets with one in each faction just in case the word doesn't get out about the FWC bug

Nah it was all over the Destiny community, I'd be very surprised if they didn't win. I had my hunter in FWC , Titan in DO and was planning to do NM on my warlock, but didn't get the campaign finished on the warlock.

I got there with my warlock just in time to do the weekly milestones before today's reset. Got him to 302 last night with the help of a 305 MIDA.

My characters are 299, 300 and 302 now. Not bad for a Destiny noob

Destiny 2 is for casual players though, not saying you're a casual player DSG, but the kids have cried so much in D1 that they made it, extremely easy.

Forever 29, now that was a grind.

Totally. I've been in raid groups and nightfalls with 305s who were doing it for the first time.

There are currently two things that benefit from being 300 and that is the raid exotic quest and the prestige nightfall.

Once you have any weapon there is no longer any point in grinding another because it will be the same and armour stats apart from recovery hardly make a difference so they are purely cosmetic.

The best weapons in the game are handed to you on a plate e.g. Mida, Nameless Midnight, Origin Story, Mida mini, Man O War so overall very casual friendly.

Also I believe once you get to 297+ you're in the same damage bracket of the 300, so don't really need to be 300+

Even my girlfriend can do a public event and she really has no thumbs at all (not literally), she was even asking my to change the controller settings so she could use the d-pad instead of the left stick. I even have an Elite controller just for her with her own settings

Also Cuboid ARu is an OP blue gun. If PvP is ya thing, use it. Armour Piercing AR.

EDIT: Was on reddit a while ago and on twitch streams now have caught up, so not a secret.

Yeah. A bit shocked by that. I wonder if they ignored any over 30 on FWC?

The reward weapons were generally rubbish anyway and not likely to be best in class, in fact none of the faction weapons are better than the best legendaries but decent alternatives if you don’t have them yet.

I do have a shedload of shards now though.

Yes I'm definitely a casual player as are most of the people playing it seems. In terms of how casual I am here are 2 examples from just last night:

1) I was logged in as my New Monarchy Warlock and noticed the DO guy flashing so I went to see him and immediately hit "A" to accept his present. It was only 5 minutes later that I realised I'd just bought it for 50K glimmer. Good job glimmer is plentiful or I'd have been well ****** off that it let me spend that much without double-prompting me.

2) Only just found out that the currency for buying legendary mods is blue mods Kept wandering how I was supposed to get more purple mods when I only had one mod component in my inventory and I'd been dismantling/discarding blue mods like they were going out of fashion.

So yes its true I'm a casual player, I don't really pay that much attention to what's going on as its just a quick-fix for my FPS cravings Seems a lot of people are like me given the dead-cert winners FWC didn't win in the end too

Both of those topics are a daily occurrence on Reddit so it's not just you

The other thing about mods is for kinetic ones you need to break down unwanted legendaries into Mod Components and 'buy' legendary weapon mods which drop in either solar, arc, void or kinetic so approx. a 25% chance.
This catches so many people out.

Yeah that was holding me back until last night too. In all my legendary kinetic weapons I only had one with a purple mod and I couldn't work out how to get another kinetic mod.

Gonna spend some time at lunch buy weapon mods to get a kinetic as I have a 299 Nameless Midnight that's begging for one

All 3 characters now at 301 or above and still have 2 lots of weekly milestones to do for powerful gear so that's at least another 10 high powered stuff to farm.

That rifle is the current meta for the calus fight at the end of the raid. Also I wouldn't say you're a casual player if you have 3 chars over 300.

The Sweet Business is great on a Titan with Actium War Rig. Fire forever

So annoying. My hunter is 299.9 base power where my chest is 304 and everything else is at 305. Might have to cheese this weeks awful nightfall.

Yep its going straight on my Titan today to replace his Hard Light

Just have one Call to Arms left and then 3 Nightfalls and that'll do me until the next reset. I'm finding it kinda dull now just grinding the same stuff only to unlock gear that's totally useless to me in the low 290's.

Took Carl's advice and switched from the Destiny app to the Ishtar Commander app. Much easier to use. Recommended.
