I'm hoping with the moments of triumphs now out, we'll see people wanting to run the vairous raid activities to complete the bounties. I still need a SoS clear, but I would be up for helping with any activity.

I know there are pleny of people available for public events and playing in the EDZ for those precious orbs.  So I assume the other activities will be busy as well.  Word of caution - don't try and do the strikes on Heroic with your new suit on. You can't do any damage to the bad guys with a light level so low ...

I probably won't participate in the Solstice of Heroes stuff. It seems like a lot of work for not much benefit. Maybe I could try it with one of my characters, but not all 3.

I should be available to help raid on Friday if needed.

Yeah, I think it's more like something to do and grind for prior to Forsaken. I don't mind it as much since I'm still actively playing the game.

I can raid Friday. Am also participating in Solstice, so give a yell if you want help. The redux missions can be soloed (at least the two of them, since I've done them myself), but it takes a while. I'd like to try them with a fireteam and see if they can be done is something closer to a normal amount of time.

I should have said that I was using full solstice armor during the missions, which is not strictly necessary (you can just equip the one piece that needs the mission), but I wanted the elemental orbs.

If you can, I would strongly suggest teaming up for these and getting them done as quickly as possible.  It looks like Bungie/Activision wasn't quite ready for the upsurge in traffic that this update would bring.  I got dropped out of the game world at least a half dozen times yesterday.  And since these missions don't save your progress, it can be a bummer to get all the way to Gaul and then get bumped out when you're about to kill him ...

I will be happy to give my spot up to anybody that still needs a completion. I'm good to go for whatever.

I can't make it this week after all. Next week should be better.

Someone else can take my raid spot if they really want it.

I started doing the Solstice of Heroes stuff yesterday with my Warlock. Unfortunately, the green armor has no Recovery at all (even for Warlocks). Healing Rift helps though. The redux missions seem to be do-able solo EXCEPT Chosen Redux which is the one where you try to defeat Ghaul. Very tough. I gave up after an hour. That mission might require others to help. On the bright side, collecting the elemental orbs is easier than I expected. I figure that getting the high level armor for one character should make leveling up faster in Forsaken.

I might be on early tonight if people want to try for the Wisper prior to raiding. I would love to help a brother (or sister) out! lol

Still in "don't know if I will be available status."  Been getting showing requests with as little as 10 minutes heads up.  Sat down twice yesterday to fire up the XBOX just to have that happen.  Good/bad there.  Good is buyer traffic.  Bad is disruption.  Need to talk to agent about that.  It feels that if I commit to something then 5 minutes before go time I will have to bail.  Hopefully this will not last much longer and I will get a solid contract here.

I think that is quite the commitment on your part Achy having to respond with such little notice. As you stated, it's good to get the showings, but I know it's hard to make plans when you might have to leave. 

Fingers crossed all will be sorted soon!

Yeah, a pretty good run. A few wipes and a few issues and a bit of time wasted in the Underbelly...lol

Good runs though, I'm glad we were successful. 

I was blown away at how good The Whisper is against Calus. I pulled about 2.5 million in a damage cycle with about 60 skulls and some missed shots. 100% worth the effort.

Pretty good run. I used DARCI on Calus instead of Whisper mainly because I have a higher comfort level with that one. I also like the 7 rounds in the magazine, so it's more forgiving if you miss some shots. I have the Stability masterwork on it too for less recoil which really helps. I believe it deals a bit less damage than the Whisper, but it deals that damage at a faster rate. So there are pros and cons for each, but either of them will work well.

I was able to defeat Ghaul solo in the Chosen Redux mission for the green Solstice armor yesterday using a 100rpm shotgun since I saw youtuber Esoterrick do that. He used the Ikelos shotgun, but I don't have that. I used Zenith of Your Kind, and there are other shotguns that would also work like Perfect Paradox and Hawthorne's. Just waited until Ghaul got close before emptying the shotgun magazine into him and then ran away. Rinse and repeat a few times.

I've been through the first 2 parts of Spire of Stars, but still haven't completed it. I know Addicted2Chaos completed it at least once. I've heard that Arcstriders with Raiden Flux are good for boss damage, and 100rpm shotguns also.

I finished Calus with a solar Titan using Nifhelm and Braytech scout rifles and Telesto.  I actually used my supers on the ads and kept moving.  They were the real issue in this final fight.  Thank the stars that's over.  The only thing left to get legendary gear is solar super kills and a successful Nightfal.  The super kills is a real pain because one needs a boatload of them.  I obviously will need help on the NF.  Btw, I found that for the armor pieces completed, I could swap them out for my maxed armor.  That made the harder second set of missions easier while still getting credit for each mission and getting credit for secondary requirements.  For example I ran the Chosen mission with just the helmet equipped and got credit for the mission and solar supers.

Having said all that...what an effing grind!

I heard about an adventure on Io called 'Postmodern Prometheus' that really helps to get the super kills done fast. I haven't done it yet myself, however.

I also heard that using public events to 'Rally to the Flag' to load up a high-ammo sword or sniper is the fastest way to get the power weapon kills done. I haven't done that yet either, but it makes sense.

Also heard that Prestige Nightfalls are good for getting the grenade kills and melee kills. Set the modifier to Grenadier for grenades or Brawler for melees. I think these could be done solo, and you don't even need to complete the strike. You could even go to a Lost Sector to do them.
