The new PvP maps are gorgeous!

But.

I am not a fan of Teleporters used in such a fashion. Current location was a constant mystery.

I am not much of a fan of mancannons anymore. Though I didn't get repeatedly shot mid-air, that day is coming.

Downloaded TTK on my second XB1 this morning. It took about an hour. I'm glad the big downloads for new releases is happening a week ahead.

I predict the release day update will be much less than a GB.

My FWC rep is about to pop. I want to save that for tomorrow. Hmmm, what not to do?

Adobe Flash keeps crashing in Firefox.  Going to have to go back to (shudder) IE to do this.

Woohoo!

Strangely enough, I couldn't get it to work in IE, had to use Chrome.

Ok, that is a freaking awesome advertising tool by Bungie.  Really cool.  

And I'm in the top 1% of something.  I have no idea how, but apparently I'm a really good longshot.  And yeah, I had to use IE too.

Bungie says, we've already downloaded 99.9% of TTK as part of the 2.0 update.

So, no worries about a big update download tomorrow.

Weird stuff tonight.

I clearly saw "Wolf pack scattered" text on Mars at Rubicon Wastes.

Though not necessarily related, a Fallen Wolf band was hanging around the back of Rubicon Wastes. They were lvl ??

Yeah, I found that same group on Sunday when I was killing Cabal majors in that area. Even the dregs "one-shot" me with their "???" level.

Can someone confirm ASAP if they downloaded TTK on XBox 360 and how much US$? $39 digital available? Or not? Trying to buy this for myself and a friend, so would prefer the cheaper price, but will go with the $59 if I have to.

Well, that was easy: fire up destiny, pick character, go to Mars, click on "requires taken king." Purchase.

Sorry you didn't see my earlier post Duke, but at least you were able to get it for the 360:

Has anyone successfully pre-ordered the $39.99 US Digital Download Taken King for _both_ XB1 and XB360? If so, how did you do it? I've successfully done so for XB1 but I can't seem to be able to purchase it also for the 360. All I see when logged into XBox Live on my PC is "already purchased" -- I know that! I want to also purchase it also for the 360! And I can't seem to purchase it directly to the 360 while logged onto the 360.

 

 

I found the the $39.99 digital download for the 360 on bungie.net.  Select pre-order under Destiny, then digital download.  On that screen you have a choice of platforms, including the 360.

No problem, Achy. I did see your post and did get to the screen you mentioned, but it always had a green "coming soon" button on it which changed to "not available" by Sunday. I wandered around on Destiny Reddit yesterday and discovered that others were encountering the same confusion. Answering posts confirmed that pre-orders weren't available on XBox 360. Not sure why Bungie had TTK set up for a 360 pre-order that you couldn't make, but am glad that actual game day purchasing turned out to be easy and for the advertised $39.

Well that sucked.  Someone at Bungie wasn't paying attention to the 360 crowd apparently.  Wonder if the same thing happened with the PS3 selection.

So been thinking of picking it up for the Xbone which means a restart since I played on the PS4 before. I quit after The House of Wolves. If the game better now? I know they made itvso you actually level to 40 now instead of light level after 20. Just not sure. I enjoyed most of my time playing Destiny, I just don't want it to feel like a job again.

I got a Conspiracy Theory-D shotgun. The worlds slowest fire rate. Huge Impact, to compensate.

Frustrating gun.

Turns out, it 'is' the slowest firing (5) with the highest Impact (67)  and Attack (300).

Last mission in the Crota missions maybe?  The one where we can kill a group of cursed thralls from behind by taking out the trailing thrall in a group.  Once the shrieker is taken out and before the groups come in, there should be several cursed thralls around.  Take out the first one and retreat.  Come back in and take out the second one.  There should be a third one, but if not, then go to orbit and come back in.  At least that is how I will try it when I get on today.

Are you doing the Urn bounty from TDB? I remember doing this on Patrol. Just head into the underground portions of the Moon and look for them to spawn. I seem to remember the area of the World's Grave being a decent spot. 

Also, do not pick up the little triangles until you've done all your melee kills. This way, you can still die and it won't matter so long as you didn't pick up the little triangle things. The triangles should still be there when you respawn.
