Nice. Been building up my coins and motes since last week for this vendor. Still might only be able to afford one.

If you have already run the weekly on lvl 22 for 3 coins, can you run it again on the higher level for its coins minus the 3 you got originally? I'm 2 short of the exotic auto rifle.

Yes, at least according to the display.  Pretty sure you can get up to 9 a week this way.  22, 26, 28 strikes.  I am not 100% sure, but I think if you just run the level 28, you might get all 9 at once.

you can solo the heroic strike.  I got 6 coins, 3 from the 24 hard, and 3 from the 26 hard.  Super easy solo.

You don't deserve a good assault rifle.

I know its a bullet hose, but is Doctor Nope controllable recoil once you do the upgrades?  I think it has at least one recoil reducer.  Those style AR are hard to headshot with because of the kick - at least for me.  I was going to get Shadow Price instead.

I've have 14 right now.... I've had about 55 total ;)

 

Though, I've barely gotten any this past week.

What to do! The AR or the chest.... I got the exotic primary shotty but don't like it and have grown fond of the scouts. The chest looks like it would work great with my class since I am now full time defender. You can have both 1 exotic weapon and armor active at once correct?

That's right ultra.

All manner of tough decisions in this game.

don't forget the incoming AR nerf might sway you one way or another. I grabbed the helmet and since my leg scout rifle has been upgrade 3 times already I have to turn my back on all other primaries. It's like dating, do I invest in this one or hope something better comes along.

Anyone else remember them saying they want us to be able to tell a badass story for every exotic weapon in our arsenal? I guess for most people that story will be " oh yeah, I bought that on Friday."

Bought the chest armor. Easy decision since my existing armor was only a blue with attributes that didnt assist in my playstyle. The chest bonuses are a perfect fit. Just glad I had the 13 coins to buy it.

Downside though, it doesnt react to Armor Shaders, so I had to change my shader to match the breastplate. Kinda weird that its like that.

I bought the Titan chest last night. My level went down a few points from the queen chest, but I don't need iron and shards to build it up. Plus the bonus's it offers is way better.

I missed the AR by 2 coins. I'll just save for next weekend. The only stuff I really want so far are the AR and Titan Helmet. Maybe they will have a Hand Cannon next week.

Updated first post. New Titan helmet is sexy, and matches rare shader I got yesterday - Thunderdevil. It doest seem to change colors with other shaders though, so if you like matching things, be careful.

Guess it's the Sunsinger gloves for me.  Wanted a helm since the Queen's one sucks.  Oh well.

The first weekend I can finally buy something and it's nothing that I want. I can't believe they are running the Sunbreakers again for Warlock - it's been the exotic every time except last weekend when I was out of town and couldn't buy. I may buy them for the increased light and initial perks, but probably wouldn't bother fully upgrading - even though I'm playing mostly as a Sunsinger.

I was really hoping for either the Voidfang or Praxic Fire chest armor.

Oh and I think I'm one coin shy of buying the Red Death, but I'm not terribly interested in it anyway. I would have loved to have the Suros from last week.

Bungie hates me...lol

Bungie hates us all!  Saved up motes of light bought the exotic armor engram from Xur.  Spin the roulette wheel with the Cryptarch and no surprise came up a turd.  It is an exotic for a hunter,  I have a level 22 Titan and level 25 Warlock, so 66% chance of using it and come up in the minority.  Well that was 23 motes of light was well spent!!!

What are Xurs hours?  My son was losing his mind last night after accumulating strange coins wanted to do some shoping and couldnt find him yesterday afternoon.  The tower must be in a different time zone cause his store hours dont fall on the what I consider weekend EST!

Do you use pulse rifles?

This is a decent one.  27 deep clip, that's nine trigger pulls.  If your accuracy with pulse rifles is good that can mean 3 kills per clip.  If most of your fights are inside medium distance this probably isn't the weapon you want taking up your exotic/primary weapon slot.  Look for a gold shotty.

Healing is a nice perk but you have to get kills to get it.  That means you have to win gunfights.  I tend to get my kills by stealing them or with my grenades/heavies/spacemagic.  I don't win a lot of gunfights so I usually keep a handcannon or auto rifle in my primary depending on the map.

All that said, I think pulse rifles are an acquired taste.  They take getting used to but a good one that you use well is awesome in PVE.

Bad seed down is the one I'm equipping lately to level and get used to.  It has a high impact with a perk and I get a ton of stagger which can greatly increase survivability in tough fights with lots of opponents in PVE.  That's the best thing IMO about Pulse vs scout rifle.  Even with lower impact you get better knock back because you are effectively tripling your chance of getting it with burst fire.

I generally use a Blue Scout Rifle with explosive rounds but I do like the Strangers Rifle. So I can tolerate a Pulse Rifle and use a fully upgraded Blue from time to time.

Red Death was tempting to me, but I got the Bad Juju bounty a few days ago, so figured I could have an exoctic pulse for free.  (Has anyone used Bad Juju? 15 deep magazine worries me).  So I bought the Titan Saint - 14 Helm - which is sexy as hell.  Its essentially for the defender class.  I will use my remaining coins for the other Titan helm which is for the striker class.  Then I will be well kitted for pvp and pve.
