I noticed my PS4 downloading a patch for this the other day and thought I have to try out the game again after months away!

I finally got around to doing the final story mission, loved the visual style of the black garden, shame you don't get to see much of it.

I'm annoyed with how the game handles it though, after the mission you get a cut scene showing everything happening, and after it finishes you're dumped back into the game with everything back to how it was beforehand. And the weapon I got wasn't as good as the legendary Bungie handed out a few months ago :laugh:

Anyone still playing this? 

 

I'm looking forward to the Prison of Elders add on next week but trials of Osiris not so much.

 

Something else to do other than nightfall/weekly and raid is going to be nice, not that I have the time for it all :(

Man I'm excited about it all. I'm one of the original players with everything in the game. I have about 2200 hours on Destiny and have completed every Challenge hundreds of times.

It got really stale so I stopped playing for a month or so. There was no point playing as ascendant materials and radiant materials seemed like a waste of time.

After Dark Below trainwreck I wasn't really hyped for House of Wolves but got psyched when I saw the changes they are bringing.

Prison of elders looks sick. Love the dynamic of it, especially with ever changing modifiers. Raids are nice but Crota was garbage compared to Vault of Glass so I want them to take time and make another Vault of Glass like raid and not half-assed crota like mess.

I was never into crucible even though I played a lot of it as well but I like the diversity and exclusivity of Trials of Osiris. The gear looks amazing and just knowing that it's not easily attainable is tempting (similar to how thorn became such an elusive handcannon - that void challenge in crucible was/is tough to do)

Overall I think bungie so far seems to have listened to everything players complained about and fixed it.

Upgrading old gear and weapons to 34/365, reforging guns, material exchange, new game modes, new missions and social area, new crucible mode and maps..

I'm back on destiny again and can't wait for House of Wolves.

2200 hours? That has to be a typo right? I've been playing from the start but I don't game a lot so have around 250 hours across three characters.

 

I've collected a fair amount of the weapons now - only exotics I don't have are Thorn, Invective, Vex and Necrocasm (if that's how its spelt) and plenty legendary including weapons.

This update definitely feels like its addressing a lot of the issues with silly blocks around materials and never having enough of one but bundles of the other

Sadly not a typo :) That's the game I've been playing almost exclusively to death since the release. With all the frustration and repetition I still played the hell out of it. 

 

The reason the hours piled up was because I played so many raids and farming for materials before Dark Below and the patches that made all that stuff so much easier. First 2 months with this game I went nuts. :)

 

I went crazy and I have fatebringer for each character, vision of confluence for each character, vex mythoclast for each character, gallajhorn for each character and pretty much everything else overall. 

 

But you are right.. the House of Wolves fixes a lot of the issues that were really bad in Dark Below. I got back into Destiny a month ago again and played the hell out of everything because now motes of light, strange coins, ascendant materials and radiant materials and other stuff will be exchangeable through the Speaker.

Wow good effort, tbh if I didn't have a minecraft obsession or a family I'd probably have a lot more hours on Destiny. The repetition can get a bit boring at times but then you have a good night, get a new weapon and it all feels fresh again.

 

Sadly only the one Gallajhorn but all but 1 of the guys I play with has at least one now, last week a guy got one two nightfalls in a row. No Fatebringer or Vex for me but we started raiding in VoG late and at the time never really tried hard and went straight into Crota. Now the level up for all means we've started looking back at the VoG and this week we might even just try and run it multiple times instead of trying to do a Crota and a VoG run. We generally only get 6 of us together once a week so we try to cram everything in one night.

Had a few days to digest it now, what do people think?

 

I thought the story was better than the last DLC drop, but still pretty short and easy to get through. The Strike was OK but a little short and pretty easy even during Nightfall. 

 

PoE I am really enjoying, I've ran a couple through 28,32 and 34 a couple of times now. level 34 was not as difficult as I expected, we got through it first time (but died alot) and took us a couple of hours.

I doubt I'll try ToO tonight but I'm enjoying what we've been given so far, nice breath of fresh air the game needed.

Taking into account the month you didn't play, you're saying you played ten hours a day every day since launch... I can't imagine playing any game that much, much less destiny. Bungie should give you something for it :p
