Did anyone else play Salvage last night? It was dropping HoW weapons.

Even with a pitiful 0.6 K/D overall, I was blessed by RNGeezus with an auto rifle, the First Rule DHYB. High ROF low impact gun, probably will keep it for sentimental value or until I run out of vault space...

I officially request you stop collecting HoW guns until I can catch up. wink

Out of surgery. All is okay. Doubt I'll be playing much, if at all, tonight.

Double dose of painkillers plus some red bull to perk you up and you should be fine!

But seriously, having had similar surgery in the past, I'd probably be feeling about the same. I remember being terrified of sneezing.

Request duly noted.  Glad to hear everything is OK.

Recover quickly, all the good stuff will still be there when you're ready.

I got on for awhile (offline) last night.

Cleared out all my engrams and commendations. Not much luck. One exotic dup got sharded. A few unwanted Legendaries got sharded.

Final tally of those that remained, 2 Legendary snipers with Shoot to Loot, Dead Orbit helmet and FWC chest piece. Not that good IMO.

I've decided to acquire FWC armour. I like its colours/logos and the Intellect/Dicipline combo.

I'm very glad to see Shoot to Loot on Legendaries. I've only seen it on Snipers so far.

Used the one Etheric light I got from a Nightfall last evening to upgrade my Fatebringer arc hand cannon, taking it from 300 attack to 365. Wow.... Critical hit numbers on Omnigul (Fist of Crota mission) increased from 627 to 822. I also used several exotic shards to upgrade a number of exotic guns I use for HoW - mostly Gjs, Thunderlord and Icebreakers. All this makes the 32 level missions easier. Next few etheric lights will likely be used for armor...

I really like how the new weapons start at 331.

Got a Patience ad Time in NF that started at 334.  Second character NF gave me 11 Strange Coins.  Guess I am going to buy a couple more Exotic Shards.  I have alreay upgraded a Multi-tool, two Icebreakers, and a Truth to the new max.  Definitely see a difference there.

I did a few upgrades to my exotics last night, both my G.horns, all 3 ice breakers, Ruin Wings, Obsiden Mind, and Bad Juju. I don't be getting the DLC until tomorrow though. I know there are a couple ghost in the tower I heard, I found one in the back right corner in one of the nets. You have to jump on the pipes to get to it.

Remember to go to the Speaker to exchange Radiant materials.  I heard he charges less than Eris.

Remember to Reforge HoW weapons when they are new and before you earn the perks. Elemental damage type changes randomly too.

Since it takes an etheric light to advance a new legendary HoW weapon to 365 - and it takes an etheric light to advance an older 300 or 331 legendary weapon to 365, I don't see a lot of new guns getting the very rare and hard to get etheric light. I'd rather upgrade the weapons I like and have kept all along - i.e. many of the VoG and CE raid guns.

Recommendation:
Use your Special Ammo Synth as often as you can. There is no easy way to delete the excess acquired from farming Wolf chests.

Some people have resorted to loading a mule character and then deleting it.

This wouldn't have become an issue if the Prison of Elder chest keys dropped more often.

The first guns I will ascend will be VoG, but after that will go on a case by case basis. Seeing some pretty damn good guns dropping already and it has only been 4 days.

For example, Light of the Abyss is one of my favorite fusion rifles. But yesterday a Split Shifter Pro dropped for me; it has better stats overall and better perks, plus it can be reforged.

So I'll (eventually) ascend the Pro and dismantle one of the Abysses.

The big problem is getting Etheric light. I heard Deej say on a stream that you would have "plenty of it" if you just play the game. My 3 nightfalls, dozen or so daily crucibles, 3 weekly heroics and other activities would disagree. Haven't gotten a single one yet.

Same for me with first legendary primary upgrade -- VOG.  That has always been my go to weapon.  I only switch out when I need to do something special -- multitool to solo Abyss, Red Death for CE HM, etc -- but they are exotics and easy to upgrade.  I have also experienced disappointment in NF with all 3 characters.  P and T, 11 strange coins, and a new legendary rocket launcher that allows for  a reroll, but no etheric light AND no jellyhorn, dammit.  Going into P of E today (got 4 Treasure keys) and hopefully will get some good drops.

Btw, the Destiny companion app does not work on Android tablets, but there is another one, Tower Ghost for Destiny, that appears to work, and is more flexible.  I am going to try to move weapons around with it today.  If it doesn't work, then I am back to user a browser to get to the Compainion, dammit.

Edit:

The Tower Ghost for Destiny app works great on my tablet -- although it does freeze once in awhile.  I am able to move weapons directly between characters fairly quickly.  I haven't tried the load out function yet but will report back when I do.

My road to collecting FWC armour is mostly done. Just need a helmet now. Love the labelling.

I got a ton of new armor & guns for HoW.....and now I need to ascend it all. I have pretty much all of my exotics ascended (thankfully only takes exotic shards). Debating on what to focus on first...

ToO is good for etheric light.  I got 4 pieces out of it on a single run.  Purchase the boons before playing and if you can scrape together at least a few wins, you can get them in the reward packages.  I focused on primary elemental weapons first to upgrade to have on hand for NF and PoE burn modifiers, with one on my Crota boots on my Warlock to hit 34.  VoC for Solar, Ovesoul Edict for Arc (sadly no Fatebringer yet), and picked up a void Messenger pulse rifle from the ToO that is pretty beastly in crucible and a lot better than the pitiful Atheon's Epilogue.  I'm sitting on one left that I may use on my Titan's armor.

Gave it my best shot with ToO. Burned through 4 passage cards and a shitload of passage coins, and couldn't scrape up even a single win. 

Fortunately now I just have to beat a 32 PoE for an armor core, that will get me to 33.5.

Will have to rely on a lucky drop from nightfall to get some etheric light, good news is it's Sepiks Prime this week.

ToO is a very different beast from regular crucible.  You really have to play as a team and communicate, running and gunning will get you and your team eliminated, which is tough because that is how I normally play.  First thing to do is size up opponents in the loading screen, know what supers they will have and keep in mind when they use them so you can be prepared.  Check the loadouts,  if they are geared to CQC with shotties and will rush or playing a long game with snipers.  Stick together with your team and watch for flanking manouvers.  If something isn't working change tactics, nothing will get you eliminated faster than running the same way 5 times in a row on spawn.  And try to use gear and loadouts that are complimentary.  We had a 9-0 run with 2 warlocks and a hunter at 33, 33 and 34.  Hunter ran GG and mostly sniped, one warlock ran sunsinger and ram for the armor boost, and I used sunsinger with fast revive helm for support.  I was a little out of my element with sunsinger, I run primarily voidwalker in PvP, but with everyone spaced out more the nova bomb isn't as useful.  Self res can be a godsend, especially when you have the fast revive helm to pop teammates fast with an overshield in the middle of the enemy.  And we came close to dropping our last match having to scrape back from a 4-2 deficit to secure the final win.

Say anything... ?

I wanna see a full-on thunderstorm sweep past the Traveller and soak the entire tower.

I wanna see a huge sandworm - like from 'Dune' - burst through the sand on Mars and kill stuff, then have a cool bounty reward for riding one.

I wanna see Custom Games for parties, of at least 6 - for 3v3, on the multiplayer maps. I miss shooting you goofballs.

Now that I'm rocking a complete FWC outfit, random people have started to notice. Didn't expect that.

I have a few FWC branded weapons now too.

I've found going this route to be an interesting diversion from the normal grind. I guess Iron Banner materials provides a similar experience.

A got a Deadshot Luna from a drop. It reforged to full auto with extra target acquisition plus explosive rounds(PvE) or stability(PvP).

Once this baby is ranked up, I'll feel safe to reforge my NL Shadow again.
