as someone who's 335 on all 6 characters and has no less than a dozen Tier 12 loadouts on each character I love the new update.

Sad times, exclusivity at its worst :(

So who's actually pre-ordered or at least planning to pick up Rise of Iron then?

 

I pre-ordered pretty much as soon as I was aware it was available, I've always despised the whole DLC keep making you pay schemes but this game still has me hooked, I actually wish I had more time to play it :(

 

This is the first DLC that I've been actually spending time reading up on the various things coming, so I'm quite hyped for this.

I did, but I've gotten my refund on it, <PERSONAL OPINION> The game just never really lived up to it's hype for me, I can't quite put my finger on it, but it always felt it falls a little short on something.

I'm a pretty big fan but I get why people don't get it. I always ask the same question when someone says they don't really get on with the game.... Did you have a solid 6 man raid team to play with? I would guess not and I'd say thats the biggest problem with the game. The best part of it requires 6 people and that can quite often be a struggle.

My group (rather the group I run with) farm King's Fall hard mode in under an hour, it's not the group.

I just 'feel' the game was changed too much from it's alpha, then they took away some impressive weapons, nerfed others, and the last straw for me was they took away gear grinding.

(A little like vanilla, bc, and wrath wow gamers could confirm)

In that case I do share your frustrations in that sense. 

 

I was just saying to one of the guys I raid with just yesterday, I remember the days when I would have specific armour for specific sections. So I'd run Helm Saint-14 and Bubble in Crota's Raid for the Abyss so we could blind the Thrall and stop them chasing us though, then switch to Inmost light because it had the heath regen for the Crota battle itself so I could get some health back if I needed it (hard mode no chalice). Now I have to run whatever is my highest light level and that's it. TTK has been out for nearly a year now and I still do not have a single character at max light level, all be it 334 because the way the gear scores work just doesn't sit right with me.

 

It also feels wrong that I can make more progress in getting my armour up in events like Iron Banner (and I suck at PVP) then I can in a Raid. 

 

I miss the elemental primaries from VoG and CE that would have made weeks with Nightfall having match game a bit easier, not to mention I don't even bother running Nightfalls now because the loot drops suck! 

 

TTK was a great DLC from the point of the content it gave us, but it also destroyed a lot of what made the game great, but I do still love it and look forward to the days we do manage to get a team of 6 ready for a Raid.

I might re buy the expansion, but it's £30 that could go towards another game (which pshhh's me off no end if the dlc only disappoints as much as the game already has) seeing as Ace Combat (hopefully not the abomination that was event horizon) is due to launch soon

Well that's one thing I have always managed is to never pay full price for any of the content I've bought including the base game. I think this DLC cost me about £18.99 so it's not as big of a hit.

How'd you get it so cheap? when I ordered it was £30

 

edit, I see it as £24.99 now on the store via my app, but still

He might have gotten a good deal...  

 

You have to keep an eye on the price drop.

One thing I see that comes around every so often from Wuaki is that they'll offer a digital movie for either £18.99 or £38.99 but it comes with a £25 or £50 XB gift card for credit. I've only done it twice (Fury and Mad Max) but it just makes things like this work out pretty nicely.

 

For example, right now its "In the Heard of the Sea" for £18.99 and a £25 Gift Card

This is Xbox also and it was £24.99 at the time I bought it, not sure if that's a price drop or just the standard price.

I've only ever seen this for Xbox but that could just be because I never look for PS deals.

 

If you don't already, check out HotUkDeals - I find out about most cheap offers from that website :)

I have FM5 for Xbox which it was for $60 and later, it got damaged which Xbox can't read.  I tried to clean it with cloth but nothing works.

 

I got another one for $20.

I still can't stand the raids, personally.  I assume I'm not the only one and it was reflected in their overall user stats, but who knows.

 

Either way, I'll be preordering shortly.

I'll be pre-ordering soon, luckily for me it'll only be £5.

Got a £10 voucher as an xmas present and another £10 when I pre-ordered Re-Core from MS.

 

I know Joe is getting it too Skiver, so we'll both be up for Raids if your ever short.

 

I also need to do Golgy challenge for my last calcified fragment before moments of triumph finishes.
