    I wouldn't worry to much about blues/greens until your maybe around 35-36 then if your equipment is decent enough you might start hoarding a few engrams until 40 but blues are easy enough to farm :)

    The main reason everyone was up in arms about the refer-a-friend scheme when it came out was that the old guard already had all their friends playing destiny. The main reason I hated it is because I knew it would encourage that kind of behaviour, people going around begging newbies to team up with them.

    Hey,

    So I have a weird problem... I'm L40 and Rank 1 with Crucible. After completing one of the quests that the Crucible dude gives you (the English dude), he gave me a reward token that said it would turn into a Legendary item... instead all I got was 4 strange coins and 4 motes of light!

    What's up with that? The only thing I can think of is that I haven't completed TTK campaign yet - could that be it?

    A similar thing happened when I dinged Rank 1 with New Monarchy... the token he gave me turned into coins and motes of light, rather than a Legendary item as it said it would. However at that point I was L32-ish and didn't have TTK yet, so I put it down to that.

    Any ideas what I might be missing?

    Cheers,

    Su

    You don't get any legendary gear until you hit rank 3.

    Oh, well that's a bit disingenuous :( I took a screenshot of when I just dinged Rank 1 with Gunsmith. Same thing, it says Legendary weapon reward, but gave me coins and motes instead!

    Spent most of last night trying to get Black Spindle with a few friends from Forever Gaming who were on the more mature side of life so their reaction times aren't the best. One was a bzzzzzzzzt warlock and the other was a bow & arrow hunter, myself a defend0r Titten. None of us had exotic swords.

    I haven't played the game in about two months so coming from CoD to this took a bit of adjusting but we didn't make it sadly.

    I do feel that that particular challenge is a tad too difficult, an extra minute or two would be perfect, as these older gentlemen will more than likely never get the sniper which is a shame.

    Tbh the vendor 1000 yard stare (triple tap, mulligan) and sniper reload perk on your armour is just as good if not better than the spindle, wouldn't worry about it :)

    So erm nightfall was fun, I mean I got such a good haul which consisted of....a 310 heliopause cloak lolololol, couldn't even use a ToC as it doesn't work on the psion flayer which is the nf for this week.

    What a joke, screw yourselves bungie you bunch of nerfing retards of the highest order.

    Yep, apart from helping others I think I'm also done with destiny. It was already frustrating as hell that Bungie can't make their minds up about weapons, so as soon as you get a decent loadout that you like and are effective with, they nerf it. The raids are terrible, I get that many think that they're good as this is probably their first experience raiding but having cleared Icecrown Citadel, I can tell you that these raids pale in comparison.
    The new light level stuff is crap. You can't use what you want because it may not have a high enough light level and you need to infuse stuff. Everyone was moaning about weapon parts being scarce, what does Bungie do? NERF THE DROPRATE LOLOLOL. Idiots.

    Then they made a Banana clash. That for me was the final nail, it was such a pussy ass campfest it just ruined what was one of the most fun activities I could have in a game.

    I still like Destiny, I think it's a great game, it's just that Bungie make some of the dumbest decisions I have ever come across in a game.

    And don't even get me started on nerfing shoulder charge and shotguns. That was my bread & butter in the crucible, and they broke it.

    Hi lads, first time on this post :p
    Grabbed Destiny on PS4 the other day, got it with my friend, but only played it once and used the RAF thing as I have been best mates with him since we were kids, and anyways, any tips or advice what I should be doing first? I have used my 25 boost on a hunter, but feel like ive jumped in too deep and dont really know anything...

    I must say I'm really TTK after my 6 month lay off, all the quests and such are a lot of fun.

    Just had the 15 coins and 15 mol gift, takes my haul up to 66 and 226 respectively :)

    That was announced weeks ago before the xmas break.

    I'm glad they take a proper break over X-Mas....a lot of studios just grind their employees into the ground until they snap.

    I have no issue with the free SC's and MOL but why did they have to appear 3 at a time?!

    Played for a bit last night but quickly got bored. I must say though I do miss the raid runs with all you guys. Might be cool to run a "nostalgia" run at some point through VoG & CE. :)
