D2 will be down for 4 hours this morning/aft.

Yeah, I just finished O Captain on Nessus, listening to final ship dialogue when servers went down at 10:00 CDT! Didn't get rewards!

I was doing the second part of the Drang quest, where you had to kill Fallen Majors on Nessus. Maybe it was just bad luck but it was starting to feel very grindy.

I acquired an exotic gravity shot gun last night. Is that thing useless or what? Stupid audio and visual effects. A good fart would sound more powerful.

I started out on the "kill the Fallen Majors" quest by repeatedly clearing a lost sector with a yellow-bar Fallen Captain as its boss. Way too slow. Midway through, I got smarter, and just started running public events. One or two Fallen events, and I was done.

I too just did the Public Events that involved the Fallen for this part too. The only issue is when randoms are with you and steal your Captain kill - very frustrating. 

There is a major Captain that spawns in the Exodus Black area right under the spawn location. I literally saw/heard him spawn as I was getting a drink and my character was just sitting in the spawn point. Anyway, I'm not sure how often he comes around, but I killed that same Captain at least 3 times. While patrolling and hopping to various events.

Apparently it shines in PvP.

I'm glad I had to work today or I'd probably be pretty upset.

I am looking for people to do Nightfall strikes with. I can't put in the time to do Raids right now but I can do a strike once a week. Anyone interested who is not already on my friends list gamertag is Osiris66 on xbox one.

If you mean character, stats, progress information, it doesn't seem to exist at the moment. You can view your b.net profile and see what emblems your characters have equipped, but that's it.

The "improved" Companion app itself is also lacking the player stats/game history, character view, and friends list browser that was in the prior version. I am hopeful that they will be adding these back in over time but who knows?

Sites like DestinyTracker and Destiny Dashboard can show you player stats and game history. I imagine they will be back to b.net at some point too.

Thanks Blam. I thought I was blind or stupid or both.

You can, at least, transfer gear with the Destiny Companion app. I believe Destiny Item Manager works too, but I'm waiting for Ishtar Commander to come back as that is what I used on my phone. 

I don't know why our game history and stats aren't available as that's a fairly basic thing we've always had with Bungie games. As Blam stated though, hopefully it will be back at some point.

The Tractor cannon is hilarious in PVP. Its an AOE shotgun and can throw multiple people. The only problem is that if they die from striking a wall or going over a cliff instead of thr inital blast, you dont get kill credit for it. But throwing teams of defenders off of a cliff never gets old. ;) It is also extremely useful for crushing hordes of mobs, like in Inveted Spire dogs, or the Song strike thralls. Its probably not the most awesome, but the fun factor makes up for it.

I wasted a duplicate exotic trying to infuse it to a legendary. It was clearly higher power level but after the infuse, nothing changed on the Legendary.

From what I have read, if the weapon you are using for infusion has a mod, it has a +5 boost to power and that doesn't count in the calculation. So if you're infusing a modded 270 gun into a 265 gun, the result would still be 265.

I've also heard (not sure where, and unconfirmed) that infusing exotics into lower power legendaries only brings them to 265 max. Maybe that is what you ran into, DEEP?

I think you hit the nail on the head with the mod. It was a 265 infusing a 270 exotic.

Here is how I've come to understand the "not-so-clear" infusion system:

Weapon 1: 265 no mod

Weapon 2: 266 no mod

Weapon 3: 265 w/ +5 mod = 270

If you want a higher power on Weapon 1, the only way to do that is to infuse Weapon 2 resulting in a 266. This is because the infusion system does NOT take the +5 mods into account when determining the power level. In other words, the BASE power level for Weapons 1 and 3 are the same in regards to the infusion system (265) - thus no upgrade.

Also, using the above example, you can infuse Weapon 2 into Weapon 3 and come out with a 271 weapon. So, in other words, when it seems like you are not getting upgrades by getting lower power gear, the game is actually giving you a way to slowly increase your power. I can confirm this works.

Finally, you can infuse Legendary items with Exotics with what I assume is no limit. However, keep in mind Exotics come with +5 mods, so your infusion will be 5 points lower than the Exotic IF the weapon do not have a +5 mod. As an example, I infused my 295 Mida Multi-tool (it's ok, I'll get another...lol) into a 265 Legendary scout without a +5 mod and it brought the weapon up to 290. Now, I'm assuming had the scout I infused the Mida into had a +5 mod, it would have been a 295. 

Anyway, hope this helps...

One of my favorites! Good choice for Xur Week 1. Anybody who doesn't have one should definitely buy it. And it's cheap.

It only takes a Fireteam of one to cap/plant the first staff. After that it's a different story. I've tested it several times.

No capped vid.

Nessus public event. The one where you stop Vex from sacrificing themselves.

I enter a public event with randoms. The Vex numbers appeared quite low. Then, incoming fire was seen with no source. Ultimately we failed because we couldn't see the sacrifices as the occurred.

Just guessing but I think the event was being shared across sever bubbles.

I've had that happen to me too - with that same event. Strange thing though, the other two members of my fireteam could see the baddies, but I could not. Weird.

Same thing happened to me but with the big Servitor closer to Failsafe.  Other peeps were firing at the big Servitor -- I could see their tracers -- as well as the small Servitors feeding it but I could only see regular Fallen adds.  Went this way for about two minutes then the big guy finally appeared.  During the "invisible" time I just dropped adds to keep them off the other Guardians' backs.

I got locked into a monster closet on Titan, Sathura's Song strike. Spent the rest of the game running around outside the map until I fell into the final boss round. Cool.
