Random TTK Questions/Comments

First - Im liking it a whole lot.  Some random stuff:

DO NOT SHARD your blue stuff that you get with attack/defense powers above 200.  You get some purples that have 200 stat marks, and you can upgrade those with blues, as long as the primary number is higher.  

What the hell do I do with the tokens on the dreadnaught?  I found some places to use them (like the worm token), but I have no idea what happens after that.

In the court of Oryx, I have started one or two, and helped many others finish theirs.  It always says "chest open" but I cant ever get anything out of it.  Any ideas?

There are some cool new shaders, weapon designs and armor designs.  I look even cooler than I did before.

The new sidearms rock.

I havent found any "bullet hose" high ROF low impact AR yet.  Has anyone?  Im finding a lot with high impact and a 22-28 clip.  The stability on all of them blows.

The purple AR you get as a reward is great (and can be upgraded by blues because it starts out at 200 attack.  Some blues have 238+).  Has anyone tried the HC or Pulse Rifle reward?

I havent found a way to upgrade Y1 exotics yet.  Really going to miss the Helm of Saint-14.

The sunbreaker Titan class is awesome.  I have fought alongside some warlocks so far, and their new class is great looking.

I picked the Pulse rifle as my reward for campaign completion and really like it, but I've always enjoyed Pulse and Scout rifles over ARs.

I haven't taken the time to really explore the Dreadnaught yet, so I can' t be of much help. Mainly I just ran around looking for fragments...lol

Also, no need to miss the Saint-14. You can pick it up again from the Exotic Armor kiosk down in the Vanguard mentor area. I believe it was one of the Year 1 exotics that was brought forward to Year 2.

Ah - so I can shard the two I have, buy the new one from the blueprint and level that one?  Awesome.  I did not understand that.  Thank you.

 

Hint on the dreadnaught - use your Ghost alot to look around.  There are quite a few of those invisible pathways in random places.  Many provide shortcuts.

Well, make sure the Saint-14 Helm is brought forward into Year 2 before you shard. I haven't played on my Titan yet, so I'm not sure what's there for Year 2. 

I'd hate for you to shard one of the best exotics in the game, only to find out it wasn't brought forward...lol

Some cause an action to happen (like calling in a Cabal strike team for you to kill) and some open up new areas for you to explore or let you use gizmos on the dreadnaught (what those do, I don't know yet).

I don't think you upgrade them per se.  The iGun and iArmor machines in the Vangaurd Hall will let you buy the Y2 stuff (or Y1 if you feel nostalgic) for the guns that you've had.  Y1 guns take a shard and glimmer, Y2 guns require Vangaurd Marks.

Thank you all.

For those of you that dont know, having a full set of complete daily bounties will take you from 34 to halfway through 37 when you complete them.  Doesnt do a blip on new armor or weapons though.  I think in general, stuff takes a lot longer to upgrade now.

Using motes of light will upgrade armor and weapons faster, but does nothing for your level.  If you can spare them, burn them while you have stuff equipped. A few should max out a legendary.
