How do we join clans and stuff
How do we join clans and stuff
OK, I succumbed to peer pressure and bought this game last night. Set it to install, and it will be waiting for me when I get home today. I'm on Xbox One as Dutchrudder07
We should make a list of gamertags for each platform for Shaggy (not just Destiny), but we can start with this game. I joined the Shaggy clan, so feel free to hit me up.
Eh, I have had to change it about 6 times since I made the original gamertag "UltraBlumpkin"
Been too many times, and I don't think Dutchrudder is picked up by their anti-fun meter, so I'm going to roll with that.
So do you have to be a certain level to play multiplayer?
I'm pretty $#@!ty at Crucible, but being a Titan and using Fist of Havoc to kill all 6 opponents guarding the same point is one of the most rewarding things I've done in video game.
Is this an online only game or can you just go solo?
It's basically always online, but you don't need to be in a party to play the missions (although it probably helps as the game progresses).
The game requires you to be online at all times, but I've done all of the story missions solo thus far.
Also, I am on Xbone as MisanthropeTX. Anybody who wants to group up for whatever feel free to drop me a line.
Does it help to have a head set like turtle bay since it's online all the time? I don't have one for ps4 yet.
For an online game, Bungie sure does seem to be making it as anti-social as possible. Some of these choices, like the inability to chat with randos, and the lack of a PVE grouping/matchmaking option, leave me really scratching my head.
The lack of variety and creativity in the mission designs is kind of a bummer, too. So far every single mission is: go here, deploy ghost, fight off waves of enemies. No interesting characters, objectives.
I'm having fun with the game so far, but when I hear "biggest budget of all time" I wonder, where did all that money go?
Man these strike fights are boring as $#@!. Tickle him for 20 minutes while dodging blobs of $#@! - don't all die at the same time.
I can't get a decent drop to save my life - lvl 21 rocking some $#@! lvl 17 auto rifle.
Edit: Just grabbed an epic cloak out of a blue engram. I'm a warlock. Thanks RNG!

I don't think these codes have been posted in here yet. I believe they are for emblems.
Just got xb1. I'm downloading destiny now. Gamer tag is dx spaz
i've developed an effective strategy for pvp, run around constantly and punch anything that moves
hah, does that strategy hold up in salvage? Loving that game type.
I dug the first strike mission. Went from lvl 8 to 10 and got some pretty sweet gear. Me and a buddy went into not knowing what we were doing and got auto-grouped with another lvl 8 player. Which leaves me even more baffled that there isn't an auto-group function for story missions. Or patrol for that matter.
Damn.. The strike mission on the moon is hard as hell.
Hey guys, I made a quick spreadsheet for gamertags. I don't think we have one for Shaggy, but let's start updating it with names and console info. Anyone with the link can edit it, so add your gamertag, time zone, current games, and consoles owned so we can all group up easily.
Cool, sounds good. I definitely want to try and get the Raiding Party achievement (Complete a Raid with a full fireteam consisting of only your clan members) when the raids become available.
I'm a level 13 Titan bout to hit The Reef. Looks like I have to do this before the rest of Venus unlocks.
This game is OK, nothing groundbreaking so far, but it's enjoyable for the most part. They did a good job with the map designs, I just don't know how sustainable this game will be long term. I have been playing for about 8 hours now, and it seems extremely repetitive. Boss fights are the only thing that really changes, but getting to them is kind of boring.
I really hate the fact that you can only have 5 bounties at a time. Definitely missed completing a few because I couldn't carry them all at once.

Been stuck at 24 for a while now. 5 more purple engrams with blue trash inside. Anyone want to do the weekly strike sometime? on ps4
Just finished beating the first mission on Venus hard-mode. As a gunslinger,t hat was a whole lot of fun (when all the Vex pile in). The game is undoubtedly repetitive, but that's where challenge and updated content comes in. Apparently we can expect plenty of content being updated..

For folks who haven't quite gotten that far yet, a couple of comments - the game will present you with opportunities to replay story and strike missions at much higher difficulty settings (for greater rewards of course), but they can change the rules slightly - like whatever weapon you are using, you won't get ammo drops (which forces you to switch weapons frequently) or certain types of special damage (arc, fusion, solar) does more or less damage (encouraging you to have a complement of special weapons so you have one of each type to choose from).
Oh, and having bounties come in through the message system is retarded. If you have 5 bounties with progress, you don't want to drop one just to see what might be in the mailbox. Or at least let the player preview the requirements before accepting it.
"Retarded" describes a frustratingly large number of choices Bungie has made with this game.
$#@! the Summoning Pits and $#@! playing this game with my SIL. Every single time we run a strike she finishes with half as many kills as the rest of us and she runs out of special and heavy ammo right before facing the main boss.
It is going forever to get enough Vanguard Points to buy anything decent. How are drops compared to that gear in the top level strikes? We are just now 20 and moving up to the 2nd level randoms.
Good place to farm for glimmer and engrams:
I got an Exotic Engram from the Crucible, which when turned in gave me 250 Glimmer... FML
Welp, I've been downloading this for an hour or so. My only other game is Forza 5 so I had to change it up.
So, guess I have to get this now. Should I download or just hit Target on the way home?
I've gotten 2 legendary armor pieces for Titans. Too bad I'm a Hunter. I did get a legendary rocket launcher that's been pretty tits though.
