Playing IB yesterday and saw a guy walking into a wall.  Started smacking him on the back to no effect and thought "aha!!" then I got the Contacting Destiny servers message and realized it was me.  Got blown all the way back to the start screen. Geez, thanks yet again Bungie...

I had an issue in IB yesterday where I was getting a slight lag between trigger pull and shot. Very disconcerting, and it really threw me off my game (i.e. went from "poor" to "very poor"). I'm glad this was a one-time event, so far at least.

I ran with the Lord of Wolves yesterday in IB. Was a disaster. After jumping into the middle of the opposing team at their heavy ammo drop, the stupid gun would not shoot. Did this 3 times, till I ditched it for my Found Verdict. The LoW is a room clearer when it actually shoots. I wondered what the other team thought.... :(

Lord of Wolves is REALLY more of a campaign weapon.  It just can't touch that whole tier of top-end shotguns out there now in Crucible.

My son got a game high of 36 kills a few days ago in hte crucible using nothing more than his Titan's shoulder charge, Lightning grenade, Fist of Havoc and Lord of Wolves. 

He and I ran a bunch of Dragon Strikes last week with each of us using the Lord of Wolves - mostly. Each and every strike boss was killed with LoW up close and personal. The randoms that went with us took half the strike to catch on to what we were doing, cuz it was obvious they'd never played the strikes that way.  It is an awesome - absolutely awesome CQC weapon. Just wish mine would shoot every time in the crucible.... (it did work on subsequent games).

Perfect illustration for why they're nerfing shotguns in campaign 20%.

I have seen no mention of this being the case. In fact, I would be surprised if this was offered because they probably want people to move toward the newest consoles.

I haven't seen anything about that yet, but it would be nice.  If that is not the case I do not plan to spend extra $ for the 360 version.

Started snooping around Bungie, XBOX.COM, and retailers for TTK preorders.  Found that the only thing available now for preorder is the $60 Legendary Edition (TTK plus all of year one).  WTF?  Wonder if Bungie figures that there are enough idiots out there that think that is the only choice and go for something 2/3 of which they already have.  Meanwhile I will wait...

Just found it on XBOX.COM.  Wonder why it wasn't showing up for me earlier.  Retailers are still only showing legendary version.

I was going to wait but the exchange rate is so shitty I should lock it in now. I waited to long for some other game and it wound up costing me. Shit.

PoE 32 crossed off this weeks chore list. Still no Queen's Cipher to complete my Elder Cipher. It's taking forever.

Did you open the big chest in the 32? Did you check back with Variks to see if the quest advanced to the next step? My experience: when I opened the next big chest after the cipher dropped, I got a notification that looked like the elder cipher had dropped *again*. Nothing I could see in my inventory had "queen's cipher" written on it. Nonetheless, when I went back to Variks, the quest advanced to the next phase, where I still am now 36 hours later...c'mon Variks, get it done!

Same situation for me but it's been about 3 weeks and four or five completed lvl 32/34. Variks want a Queen's Cipher so he can repair the Elder Cipher I have in hand.

I think the problem might be that PoE lvl is not quite 3. Just guessing.

Don't think that's it deep. I'm not level 3 yet and I'm on the last part of a cipher (kill poe bosses)

 

It did take a bit of time between getting a queen's cipher and Variks repairing it, though

Yeah, I can't figure it out. I finished another 34 and no Queens Cipher. I did pass PoE lvl 3 at the end though.

You're not missing much since information seems to be a close guarded secret at Bungie. It's not a quest per se. The Elder Cipher drops randomly at lvl 34/35 and gives you a choice from 3 Exotics, if the Queen Cipher ever drops. Seems ridiculously random.

Deep, what text is on the elder cipher bounty in your inventory? Does it mention the queen's cipher? Or does it speak of waiting to be summoned by Variks? I have the latter and *think* I've passed the queen's cipher bit. But I've found the behavior of this bounty quite confusing so far...

It says it's "The Elder Cipher" and below that it says, "Return Queen's Cipher to Variks".

DEEP!!! - if that's what it says, then you have the Queen's Cipher. Just go to Variks and talk to him to move on to the next step in the bounty.

He will then make you wait a day or two - just visit the reef once a day until he has that green notification thingy above him. First two I got took 2 full days before it was ready. The last one took just over a day.

I go to him almost every time I get on. The waypoint is over his head and he never gives me anything except to tell me to go get the Queen's Cipher. Is there a button I need to push? LOL

This is gonna sound like a stupid question, but... Underneath where it says "Return Queen's Cipher to Variks.", do you see "You bring me Queen's Cipher, I repair this one. And we both get what we want."?

If so, you should be able to press A to move on to the next step. If that isn't working then I'm not sure what to tell you - maybe your Cipher is truly broken?
