    Looted the cave for about 20 minutes with 3 random people today. Got a legendary hand cannon and a couple nice pieces of rare armor. Hand cannons kick ass.

    It's worth it whatever level you are. Even if it's only a few times.

    Biggest problem with the cave are people standing too close. Need to be by the angled concrete to get the extra spawns. Been having to think of some creative solutions to get people back.

    Some people are dumbfounded. They see people shooting into the cave, come check what's going on, ruin the spawn, run away, hear shooting again, run back, look in the cave, repeat. It's funny

    (4 people) This took us since launch to gather, we we're interested in what the chances we're for each rarity to come out of green\blue\purple engrams so we decided to record all of it. Here was our results

    NOTE: We gathered ALOT more greens but for the purpose of the test we wanted to keep it as even as possible, but gathering legendary engrams was taking way too long so we decided to stop and check results. Strange coins\motes came under blue rarity count when decoding blue engrams.

    Total engrams gathered

    Green: 290 Blue: 250 Purple: 55

    Results:

    (FOR THE SAKE OF CLARITY I WILL POST THE COLOR OF THE LOOT NOT THE NAME OF THE RARITY)

    GREEN ENGRAM RARITY:

    White: 68 \ 23.45%
    Green: 201 \ 69.31%
    Blue: 21 \ 7.24%
    Purple: 0
    Yellow: 0

    BLUE ENGRAM RARITY:

    White: 0
    Green: 53 \ 21.2%
    Blue: 186 \ 74.4%
    Purple: 11 \ 4.4%
    Yellow: 0

    PURPLE ENGRAM RARITY:

    White: 0
    Green: 2 \ 3.64%
    Blue: 33 \ 60%
    Purple: 19 \ 34.55%
    Yellow: 1 \ 1.82%

  • #306
    34% from legendary engrams is just a stupid low chance. That even sounds high to me from my experience (maybe 2 dozen opened - 3 items, of which 2 weren't for my class). Even worse when you look at Cryptarch level rewards but they probably don't deal from the same loot pool. Just lower the drop rate if it's a ~34% success - it's needlessly frustrating to the player.

    On a good note I'm getting crap tons of coins out of blue drops so I'm looking forward to Saturday.

    It makes it all the more enjoyable when they do this, then check out the wreckage to the left. I saw this twice today, both times resulted in their immediate death.

    As for the loot cave, I've been using a sweet Scout rifle with explosive rounds and 'shoot to loot'. Anytime I shoot ammo mags, I pick them up. There's no such thing as ammo breaks, and explosive rounds will kill each wave in 3-4 shots.

    Just tried this and you're totally right. $#@!ing nuts. I can just stand there while it's being farmed and collect loot drops. It's always being farmed now by lvl 20+, and now that I understand "light" I understand why they are.

    Finally got my 2nd legendary gear (first being a shotty I only use in pvp). Not only was it for a different class, but it was a class item, "The Mandate" skirt for titans. If it were a warlock or Titan gear with stats, that would be one thing. But how the hell will a bedazzled dress help my lvl 3 Titan?

    I haven't got a chance to play yet, can you just trade gear for diff classes? We could help each other with legendary stuff.

    No trades with other people but you can stash gear for your other class characters in the vault.

    Farmed for about an hour and a half last night and got 4 legendary engrams. 1 decoded into a blue, 2 decoded into purple and the fourth got me my first exotic, a sniper called Ice Breaker.

    I was out there for 2 hours last night and none of the three of us got a single legendary engram. I did go from 20 to 22 though.

    That's me. I've farmed for probably 3 hours anyways, just not getting lucky. I've had a couple purple engrams drop here, but none that yielded legendary gear.

    I just farmed that cave on earth and loaded up on blues without getting any purple engrams. Went to the cryptarch to decode em, leveled him up and got 3 purple engrams in the bonus package you get when you level up at the cryptarch, took those 3 back to him, and got 3 blue weapons I already had. That $#@!er is a total troll.

    I can confirm that you only have to be in the area to get drops. I park myself nearby when I'm doing $#@! around the house and am getting tons of drops. The problem is every server I join has had only 1 person at the most farming (PS4). I Haven't been able to set up any decent teams for more spawns.

    Interdasting, I'm on PS4 as well and every time I go there I've seen at least 2 or 3 guys farming.

    Well. Here goes nothing..

    RE: above, opened 7 purple engrams, and received legendary gloves, boots (both hunter), and a pretty sweet hand cannon that goes up to 300 damage (has that lovely +2 agility option as well). In addition, I got POS helmet, 2 of the same gun, and 2 motes. Overall, I'm a little surprised with the success, definitely looking forward to working on the hand cannon and I'm glad I got these before I dropped Vanguard marks on cheap armor or weapons.

    TLDR: 7 legendary engrams, 3 applicable legendary gear.

    Curious, does anyone keep extra sets of weapons/armor for PVP? I keep a special and heavy weapon for each class and each element type for PVE (rotate them to max them all), but have been keeping a pvp set(s) as well, especially considering most of my +light weapons are meh in stats, like discipline.

    Yeah I have since the bonus stats carry over, right? Even though I don't know $#@! about what I should actually use, I try to keep a piece with the higest +int/str/disc and stuff with armor bonuses.

    Stats and gear perks (such as extra pulse ammo, faster reload on kill, increased stability) all apply. Damage and armor are the only things normalized. Light does nothing as far as I'm aware. Ideally you pick your weapon only by its perks (keep in mind rarer weapons allow more perks) and gear on perks/stats. For example, I'm working on a mobility bladedancer with grenades as an afterthought and special/melee as priority. I want pvp gear that's all strength/intelligence, and weapons that boost agility, reload quick, extra hip-fire damage, etc.

    $#@! IOS 8 sucks hard. I typed you a nice little guide and it crashed about 2 sentences from send.

    Cliffnotes:
    1. Daily bounties (Vanguard and/or Crucible). This is for Vanguard/Crucible reputation, unlocking better gear.
    2a. Farm aforementioned cave (if your gear is just that bad Or you want to take advantage of loot exploit before its patched)
    2b. Daily heroic strikes and/or Curucible matches. This gives reputation and 'marks' essentially currency for Vanguard and Crucible gear
    3. Random heroic strikes (lvl 20 is quickest) and/or continue crucible matches.

    Priority is to build reputation wih whichever mode you mainly use. You want to do this until you're at least lvl 2. Secondary goal is to max out your Vanguard and/or Crucible marks for the week (there is a limit). You can tell how close you are to reaching this on the lower right corner of your map (rings around Vanguard and Crucible planets). Tertiary goal is farming cave and building rep with crypto by analyzing engrams. Quaternary (optional) goal is determining of you'd rather have str/int, int/disc, or disc/str gear (primarily for pvp). There are 3 factions that specialize in this area, but I wouldn't worry about this until after you've built vanguard and/or crucible rep to 2.

    Go check and see if there's a bounty for doing 6 patrol missions on earth. Pick that up if it's there. Go to earth, knock out the patrol missions really quick and then farm the treasure cave for awhile until the public event in that area pops. That's a pretty quick way to get some vanguard rep and some purple/blue engrams. Go knock out the daily story mission. Do some stuff off of the random strike playlist. Depending on how you're geared, the daily heroic story mission might be really tough for you as a 20. Send me an invite if I'm online (xbox live - MisanthropeTX) and I'll go run it with you.

    Thanks guys. I just figured out that I have a subclass that I need to level up, and the easiest way to do that is the cave farming trick. 170 XP per bunch of bad guys counts up quickly when you have a decent group. Although, I haven't gotten a single purple drop since doing this, mostly just greens.

    Isn't there some faction thing I'm supposed to join, or do I just keep earning generic rep?

    And FYI, I still have this Google doc up for folks to put their names down: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...-V8/edit#gid=0

    I am sticking with plain vanilla vanguard for the time being because I almost have enough rank to start using marks to buy legendaries.

    Holy $#@!, is there any way not to show up on opponent's radar in multiplayer? I $#@!ing hate it when games do that. It's not even limited to shooting, it's simply being near another person that shows them on the radar.

    Crouching is the only way to not show up on their radar, I think. I'm assuming at some point they'll have a gametype like Swat on Halo where there's no radar, but who knows.

    Probably the Sun super for warlock. Can reduce incoming damage while increasing ability strength. Been playing around with it in pvp but haven't maxed it yet.

    Okay, I was lukewarm on this game until the Moon missions. Pretty awesome firefights.

    I've got a Titan up to Level 8. Got a 56 auto rifle, 64 fusion rifle, 72 shotgun, and 49 sniper. Armor total is 119. Is that enough to get into the crucible or should I keep levelling up first?

    Also, are y'all selling off the lower armor and weapons as you get better ones or keeping them? Doesn't seem like there's any need to keep the crap, right?

    Everything but weapon damage is normalized in Crucible (I believe). I had fun leveling via Crucible and didn't have too much trouble. You will be at a disadvantage but not enough to not have fun.

    Sell the old crap. No need for it unless you're needing elemental damage for strikes but I'm not sure what level that starts to matter.

    This. Crouching shows your spot, but it's in faint pulses in less frequency, which the average gamer wouldn't detect. Invisibility will not (be it crouching invisibility, special, or melee in is). Also, if the radar shows an enemy near, but the red-zone is hollow, it means the enemy is above or below you.

    Curly, I don't understand it either. I get it on Titans too. It's not just the warlock's sun special. You'd know if that was it because you'd have eaten 3 grenades before you got that close. Also, Bladedancers can do additional melee damage from behind.

    Okay, I'm up to level 10 and I'm getting into Crucible today. Held my own okay first couple rounds for not knowing the maps. So:

    1. Is there a way to walk thru the maps outside of an actual match? CoD allows you to set up a private match, etc.

    2. Where the stats at??

    Found the stats at bungie.net, but is there really no way to view them in-game, see stats for the rest of the lobby, etc? Please tell me they unlock after a certain number of matches or something.

Although, I haven't gotten a single purple drop since doing this, mostly just greens.

    Isn't there some faction thing I'm supposed to join, or do I just keep earning generic rep?

    And FYI, I still have this Google doc up for folks to put their names down: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...-V8/edit#gid=0
    You won't get purples until you're over 20. I haven't really gotten any until past 22. You can't even have legendary items until after 18 so you shouldn't have expected to get any of them.
