I've always wanted a great hand-cannon, and the TLW is one of the best.

That said, it's expensive, and I'm not all that impressed by Thorn.

Thorn and TLW are monsters in Crucible though if you can use them the right way

Love running Bad Juju/Obsidian Mind on my Warlock. Nova Bombs for days son.

Bought a few helmet engrams and the Ram and celestial nighthawk decrypted!

I bought one helmet engram and got Helm of Saint-14

I figure Xur will probably sell some new stuff next week and would rather save my Motes for rerolling weapons at the Gunsmith

Tried Trails of Osiris earlier and my team got demolished but I did get some armor from it and it is very fun

Hunter hit 34 with exotic helm, gloves from variks, chest from trials of Osiris rank 5, and used 1 etheric light to ascend crota raid boots.

This week variks is selling chest, so it should be pretty easy to hit 34 on my other two toons.

My interest in the game was rejuvenated as I played with a friend for the first time the other night. Still only at level 14.

-ascended Obsidian Mind/Light Beyond Nemesis helmets
-Kellbreaker's Gloves
-Trials of Osiris chestpiece (freaked out when I saw it was a drop)
-Trials of Osiris boots

Prison of Elders is my favorite addition to this game so far

Do you guys choose your gear based on appearance or something like ability (how strong it is, etc.)? Or are you at high enough levels where anything you buy is already maxed out anyways?

Well before the only way to be the max level was by equipping all the raid gear from VoG/Crota

However with the House of Wolves DLC you can just ascend vendor gear or dropped gear with Etheric Light to max it out to the highest levels. So you could have a Dead Orbit chest piece, VoG boots, and Crota's End gauntlets all maxed out and be level 34. Add in all the armor shaders and you could have hundreds of combinations that you like.

I'll be honest, I have no idea what most of that means. Maybe I can try to decipher it and you guys can help me fill in the blanks. Again, there are a lot of elements I don't fully know about yet.

"Well before the only way to be the max level was by equipping all the raid gear from VoG/Crota" - Meaning you were stuck with whatever you picked up while doing the missions, patrols and such?

"However with the House of Wolves DLC you can just ascend vendor gear or dropped gear with Etheric Light to max it out to the highest levels." - I do have the House of Wolves DLC downloaded. What is Etheric Light?

"So you could have a Dead Orbit chest piece, VoG boots, and Crota's End gauntlets all maxed out and be level 34." - So with this Etheric Light deal, you can have any piece maxed out, even if it might have originally been a lower number/level on something like "Defense"?

"Add in all the armor shaders and you could have hundreds of combinations that you like." - Do "armor shaders" allow you to change the color?

Thanks for the help.

"Well before the only way to be the max level was by equipping all the raid gear from VoG/Crota" - Meaning you were stuck with whatever you picked up while doing the missions, patrols and such? Yes the Vault of Glass and Crota's End are the 2 raids you can do in the game right now. When you run the raids at certain points you get loot drops that can be weapons or armor from that raid. Only way to get to the old max levels (30 and 32) was by maxing out the armor from the raids (aside from equipping an exotic armor piece)

"However with the House of Wolves DLC you can just ascend vendor gear or dropped gear with Etheric Light to max it out to the highest levels." - I do have the House of Wolves DLC downloaded. What is Etheric Light? Etheric Light is an item you can get by doing the Prison of Elders at certain levels (32, 34, and 35 I believe). Old gear can be "ascended" by using Etheric Light on it to get it to the max light level of 42 and get you to level 34.

"So you could have a Dead Orbit chest piece, VoG boots, and Crota's End gauntlets all maxed out and be level 34." - So with this Etheric Light deal, you can have any piece maxed out, even if it might have originally been a lower number/level on something like "Defense"? Yes but check to see what ones you can ascend. Certain ones you can't do this to but from what I've seen all the ones that matter you can ascend.

"Add in all the armor shaders and you could have hundreds of combinations that you like." - Do "armor shaders" allow you to change the color? Yes

Thanks for the help.

Thanks for the info, Pinja. Really appreciate it.

I usually play games like GTA, Battlefield, and COD, where all you really have to worry about is collecting money and building loadouts. I'm starting to get more used to Destiny and I do enjoy having a game with some more depth, even if it requires a little more effort in learning about the game to reach certain levels.

If any of you ever feel like playing, PM me and I'll send you my PSN name.

The game gets MUCH better at level 20. Play the story mode, and do the Strikes on each planet to speed up your progression.

Make some posts on reddit.com/r/Fireteams if you'd like help. There are PLENTY of people willing to lend a hand.

Bumping this.

Started playing with the April update, with RoI coming back, I want to do the VoG Raid, anyone on here still playing? Im sitting at light level 317 with both a Hunter and Warlock. Looking for people to join a fireteam and maybe tackle a raid on the weekend or sometime during the week.

Its super easy to get to 300 now, getting to 315 took some work. Now starting to do the Nightfall Weekly challenge (which is light 320) and that **** is a pain in the ***. But with the matchmaking apps its so much easier than the Division. Last night had a 335 guy carry us to the end and help out a bunch.

Trying to get to 335 before the next DLC drops

I'll help with anything on ps4.

Most people are trying to complete the moments of triumph for the shaders and emblems.

335 is very easy to get now.

I'm grinding Rumble grimoire mostly - that and the golgoroth and oryx challenges for MoT y2.
