Very good.  It certainly felt doable in the first room, I had an absolute blast just running around throwing axion grenades at all the thrall.  May have to bounce in there with Ranger this weekend to see what kind of loot we can get.

Run the 320 playlist with a full fireteam with the goal of only using grenades, supers & icebreaker.  Its doable, it can get messy, but it adds a bit of a competition along the way too.

I was really glad to get that IB. I have been carrying around a 170 one for ages. Handy when Special is not falling with its auto ammo regen.

Congrats, Darkman! Good to see you're still playing. Haven't run into you online in ages.

Anyone still grinding for the Icebreaker?

Nightfall this week looks pretty boring/awful.  Winters run with beserk, small arms, chaff and match game.  Not a lot of fun there.  If anyone tries it report back.

Darkman and I ran it last night and we got the Taken version (not sure if it rotates), so it was as much fun as diarrhea soup.

I suspect that we will only ever see the taken version for the NF.  The original would not be annoying enough to make it a NF.  Arc shielded taken captains sneaking up on you to throw darts into your back.  Or that boss teleporting and sneaking up behind you. A doable strike, but not as much fun as some of the recent versions.

I forgot that killing the first wave from the ketch results in failure. sad 

The first parts are easy enough and Arc is the burn of choice. Had to stop at the ketch for supper.

Ran it solo on my self-rez Warlock. It took a loooonnnnnggg time and many many deaths to complete.

The ketch was the toughest part to get through; the boss fight was just time-consuming. Icebreaker was nice to have on hand at points where it was too risky to run to pick up ammo.

11 3oC's was the Grand Prize. Yay.

That's pretty cool, Blam.  I bet it did take a while, that boss can be a royal pain.  Ranger and I ran through. I had an argument with one of the taken captains that I failed to win, but we took it slow and completed it in time. And was rewarded with a ghost and some 3oCs  Love them NF rewards.

Looks like we are graced with the Dust Palace this week.  Void burn, berserk, ironclad and catapult.  *sigh*  I don't normally achieve gold tier in this strike in normal play due to the 2 second kills of the psions with swords.  I wonder how much extra time bonus we will get  and if it will make up for it.  Otherwise, I forsee taking in a void sniper and dark drinker.

Nightfall this week is Shield Bros. Yuck. I always hate this strike when it comes up. Small arms, fresh troops , matched game and airborn. Not the worst, but it is Shield Bros. Any one still hunting for ib? We have been running these mostly for the bounties loot drop lately. Still hunting for a couple of rolls.
