I also have this gauntlet, but you can only have one Exotic item equipped at a time. I use the gauntlets for PvP and the helmet for PvE.



I got my lengendaries by waiting to redeem my mail from the Cryptarch.

When you level him up you get a package at the postmasters and they contain 3 engrams, rare or better.

Before the new patch, engrams could decode below their status to uncommon or even common, but the patch changed that. I didn't pick up my packages until after the patch and there were 6 waiting for me.

15 rare engrams and 3 legendaries. Some of the rares rolled legendary as well after I redeemed them. Didn't get any legendary armor, just weapons.

The armor is Future War Cult armor. I bought the Bond (armband) as soon as I reached level 20 and since then all XP that I earn (except for Queen's Favor XP) goes to FWC instead. So I'm not leveling up Vanguard or Crucible, but it's funneling into my faction. The armor costs Crucible Marks and you can earn 100/week playing PvP.

The exotics I bought from Xur yesterday, he shows up on the weekends and sells exotic items for Strange Coins and exotic engrams for Motes of Light.

The gauntlets cost 13 Strange Coins and the helmet came from an engram that cost (I think 25) Motes of Light.

Not yet. I'm trying to find a fireteam that doesn't suck.
I'm also in the process of doing an exotic bounty for a hand cannon but that's a bitch. Level 28 Strike in the Summoning Pits. Have to keep Phogoth alive until his champion comes and defeat him. It's fucking rough There are like 4 active modifiers on top of high already high difficulty.

Exotic bounties huh? When do you unlock access to those? I'm at level 24 right now.. spending most of my time in the crucible for the most part cuz SHIT it's fun! You feel like such a bad ass when you get better at it and have all your unlocks. Taking down three enemies in a row with your golden gun, switching to shottie, BLAM to someone aware and follow up right after with another shot to his friend - take down half his health and then rush in close with the melee, double jump into the air backward and throw two throwing knives to take down a sixth enemy as he runs into the area.....
Such fun

Dude this game has a lot of faults but it gets even more right. 10 years guaranteed support too. Bungie is in this for the long haul and they're going to work with the players to keep making it better.

Exotic bounties are available after lvl 20. They're completely random you get offered them after you turn in a bounty it's completely random and you choose from 1 of 3-4. The more bounties you turn in the more likely you are to get one.

Half of the game is a cooperative experience, where that gripe isn't really applicable.


And in the competitive multiplayer, your weapon and armor stats are all normalized so as to provide a level playing field.

There are advantages where you level up your abilities, like being able to jump higher and the like, but pretty much everyone has all their perks unlocked as it is anyways.

It is definitely more skill based than not. You'll see level 10s in first place while a level 28 is in last place quite often.




(there is going to be a special form of competitive multiplayer called Iron Banner released some time later that has all the normalization turned off, where your exotic weapon of badassery is just as badass here as it is in the PvE... so yeah.. you're given a choice)

.

Personally I doubt that 10 years support is going to mean what a lot of people hope it means...
For a while we'll see regular updates.. at some point though, "support" is just going to mean keeping the servers up.


But anyway, the story is by far the biggest thing wrong with the game. Honestly I wish the Ghost never talked, because it's pointless. Or no seriously it should just be some Unreal Tournament announcer voice being like, "get ready.... TO KILL!!!" and then all the fallen come or whatever.
Cuz really, no one wants to hear Peter Dinklage say, "be careful of that sword, it's power is dark" when you don't know anything about the sword, where it came from, why it exists, why you need it, who you need to stop, or who you're really fighting really.. and why other than just like... DEM GUYS IS BAD... so fuck it.. you know.. just get the guy to tell some jokes or something lol it would be better than what's there.


What the game gets right though it gets right in spades. This is one of the very best feeling FPS games I've ever played. It. Is. So. TIGHT.

Apparently in the Alpha, Dinklebot had a TON of energy and emotion but his dialog got rerecorded to the lame sterile shit it is now.
I agree the story (or lack there of really) is the worst part of the game.

On the other hand I'm having a great time just grinding and playing in the world.

Also new chill spot in the Tower

Or the servers could stop booting me at the end of strikes all the time.
Happened like 3 times always right during the boss fight. Sucks.
