Haven't played this for almost a month now, is it still a boring grind fest? What does the upcoming dlc add?

 

You can now trade marks for materials, so that takes out a lot of grinding. You also get them from bounties and daily/weekly missions too. Exotics no longer require ascendent materials to level up. 

 

New DLC adds new weapons, armor, a raid, a strike, new sparrows, a new vendor and new story missions. 

 

I think I'm going to be perpetually stuck at level 29. I've gotten nearly everything you can get from the raid, except for the gauntlets and the chest piece. Hiding the max level behind RNG was a terrible design decision.

I was lucky enough to get the chest and gauntlets from the only single raid I've played. Also got the boots from the iron banner event, and today the fugly exotic warlock helmet from Xur.

Just in time for all that gear to be rendered obsolete by the DLC, I guess.

 

Not much of a difference though, I'll be stuck at level 30. I don't have a 6 men team to grind raids (and I usually don't feel like teaming up with random strangers), and apparently the new raid gear requires raid stuff for the upgrades.

Well, it's the easiest way to get to level 30: lvl26 raid gear (maybe with some iron banner pieces) + Xur's exotic helmet (ie. light beyond nemesis if your are a warlock, which is the helmet he's been selling more often).

Not an aesthetics thing  :D

Reminds me of running through Crysis2 in invisibility mode  :huh: the only cooperative part of that raid seems to be that without invisibility you'd need a lot of ammo and firepower.
