I suppose the biggest issue for me is that IB went from being really good with rewards at the end of D1, to being back to being a grind and RNG-based loot. 

I don't mind the grind, in fact I enjoy grinding for stuff, but this new system just feels like such a chore. Overall, I don't care for this token system that's being used for EVERY part of the game as a means to get the various vendor gear. This combined with the fixed rolls on everything now means there is not much to get excited about when a piece of gear or weapon drops that is a repeat.

I'm only now going through the Adventures. Some of them have been quite enjoyable.

Nice write up about the raid.  Worth reading:

This is getting a lot of hits so you may have to link in a couple of times to get all the info.

In a discussion with Deep about the forward swept wing ship, we talked about real ones. Searched tonight and found the only three known real fighter planes:

German JU-287 Russian Su-47 U.S. X-29

FYI, this weeks NF was replaced by Pyramidion and abilities recharge super fast. Same as 2 weeks ago.

We got to the boss with 7 min on the clock.

It's the only NF+modifiers I've had any success with.

Achy, Vaht and myself knocked out the NF with 30 seconds to spare. First attempt.

Getting the time down seems quite doable.

Good going, guys!  I'd like to give the NF a try myself this week, but it's so much more fun to help my daughter do homework, I've been doing that instead. Looking like my best shot will be the weekend evenings.

From:  https://www.bungie.net/en/Explore/Detail/News/46427

CB: Hey, everyone. We've been playing the game in the wild for seven weeks, and like the Destiny experiences that have come before, we're always thinking about where the game is heading next. We're still planning when a bunch of the improvements listed below are going to make their way into the game, but we wanted to let you know what we're up to. Here’s a short list of updates we’re working on:
 
  • New systems and rewards to give our most engaged players additional, optional pursuits.
  • Better incentives for players who complete challenging Prestige activities.
  • Better rewards and replay value for strikes, adventures, and Lost Sectors.
  • Private matches for the competitive community (we are targeting early 2018).
  • Crucible tuning like adjusted Supremacy scoring and better spawning rules.
  • Better incentives for completing Crucible matches (and penalties for quitting competitive games).
  • Continued improvements to Iron Banner and Faction Rallies, including uniqueness of rewards.
  • Changes to make the mod economy more interesting and impactful.
  • Ongoing improvements to Exotics, including adjustments to reduce instances of duplication.
  • New ways to spend surplus currency and materials (looking at you Legendary Shards).
  • An emote interface that allows players to equip Salty, Spicy Ramen, Six Shooter, and Flip Out all at the same time.

Participated in the raid last night from the Gauntlet check point.  After finally getting thru the Gauntlet, which is always fun, we got to meet Porky Pig, I mean Calus and ran thru a couple of the early mechanics.  This last encounter is going to require a lot of study and practice!!

FYI Mobility settings only affects walk speed (and jump height). Sprint is unaffected. I'll try to find the game mag video demonstrating it.

Update: video posted on gamerant.com.

Good post DEEP. I pretty much run as much Recovery as I can on my characters. I can actually get my Warlock to 10, however, I did switch out to mobility gear during the Gauntlet section of the raid and the extra jump height makes a difference since I'm one of the runners. 

I will say that it seems if you are a Hunter main, you'll be struggling to find good Recovery gear. The best I've been able to do on my Hunter is 6 Recovery and that's with two Recovery mods. Warlocks and Titans have it much easier if you want to max out Recovery.

Faction Rally starts today and a lost sector glitch has already been found.  Don't know how long this will work but I can confirm that as of 12:45 Eastern today it was working for me.  Check it out:

Adem West had just stumbled into this lost sector when Vaht and I joined him last night. The glitch definitely works! We ran it about 3 or 4 times as "proof of concept" before moving on to less tedious activities.

Maybe. I guess you could say that - the NM weapon was the most desirable of the three offerings. I was pretty sure NM was gonna win this one from the git-go.

Dolby Atmos for headphones is on sale in Canada for $15. I bought it.

Things to know.

1. 30 day free trial. Go to the Store and download the Dolby App.

2. Does not work with any other kind of sound enhancements turned on. I.E. Wireless headsets with Surround sound on.

3. Does work with ordinary (dumb) headsets plugged into the 3.5mm jack on the controller. Also works with newer wireless headsets like the Turtle Beach Stealth 600/700.
