Damn. 387. Dat requirement doe.
Previously set it at 385 but 385 ppl were dying a LOT. Hoping a point or two extra will help so I can get some folks through the heroic raid.

I mean I ran it on my titan while he was 380 just to prove to myself it can be done, but people really seem to struggle to stay alive.
The chest piece from normal raid makes a massive difference in survivability during Vosik tho, so if ppl get that 380+should be fine.
It's all about positioning. Light level doesn't matter until you're like 360. We ran most of the hard raid with the 0 light level masks for fun.
That brought us down to 369.
Very true, but someone who has never done hard mode benefits from light. An experience runner like u or I can do hard at 365-370, but most need the survivability 380+
I mean if a 390-400 can solo a side at vosik, two 380s should be able to easily. Folks just need to get used to it is all
Well you're asking people to have done Normal a bunch, really they should know where to be, as the hard raid hasn't even changed much about it
You'd be surprised. Normal is so simple sometimes people have done it 5+ times without truly learning the roles or the safest spots to stand/throw/etc
But your logic is sound ;)
Well I haven't even finished a full run, and I already know how both phases of Vosiks work, as well as the Siege engine. Haven't finished Aksis phase 1, but know it.
Still need to do it on normal, I'm only at 363 :'(
Yowzers. Its so easy to get light now lol u just need to play the game amigo

Purple engrams go to 385. Blues go to 365. Get off yer keester!
I've been grinding heroic strikes, quests, and Archon's Forge — still getting garbage purples!
Always always equip the highest light pieces u have. Drops are scaled to your level. Check my blog on exactly how to gain light efficiently
You can infuse if u want, but its easier just to equip whatever your highest light pieces are right before picking up strike boss drops and before decrypting engrams.
Save all your exotic engrams (assuming u r using 3 of coins while doing strikes). You will need them to move beyond 390
Nothing is garbage if it i ls even 1 light point higher than the piece u are wearing.
I've been doing all of those things, yet all my purples and blues are at my level/+1. And yeah, I've been saving exotics. 3OC hasn't popped anything for me for strikes.
Yeah theyll always be only 1 light above where you are at, at most. Make sure to do archons forge if your artefact, ghost, or class item are lagging behind the rest
Jump into my next normal mode raid man. I can sherpa you through at 365 easily.
Thanks, I'll keep an eye out for it! I have a few friends who are close to ready to go through the raid too.
Nomal mode for 'raid virgins'. Join if you havent gotten to run the raid or if you've run it but haven't been successful.
Is there a quest you need like the taken kings one?

There is a quest for completing it and I believe you have to finish the story missions for it to show up on your map, but you can join anyone's raid to get the achievemen
The quest just gives you faction and exp. Also theres the Outbreak Prime exotic quest that you can get while doing it. 390 light primary exotic weapon
The only quest that involves the raid, other than outbreak, is one for extra Siva Cache Keys.
Would have been good to raise the light level but im only about 237
If anyone is hesitant about joining this due to light level, just know my first venture was with 3 LL350's. Raid is actually easy, just requires communication
Just applied for this. 387 titan as of now.

Nice! That was too easy it seems like lol
Ha i will swap you titans then so i can do both the dlc raids haha
Co-op Gaming Session for Destiny

i'm at 378 ... i'll try to lev up till 385 before take the opportunity that u are giving at the community .. .TnxS
385 is super easy now. Purple engrams go up to 385 and faction packages go to 390. Just run strikes n crucible.
Save any skeleton keys and exotic engrams until youre over 390
Especially exotic boot engrams. Only 400 light boots in the game are nightfall reward, hard raid, and exotic engrams afaik
Faction packages only go to 390 :/?
Well damn I'm not even near 385, only at 363 right now. Maybe in a couple weeks time when I muster effort to get my light level up, and done Normal of course.
Yes faction only got to 390. Exotics, hard mode drops, skeleton key chests, forge rewards (ghost, class item, artefact), and nightfall go to 400
I should specify exotic engrams. Exotic drops from normal mode raid exotic chests only go to 385.
Thanks for the clarification!
If you do one of these on a Saturday or Sunday I would love to join!
Gonna try torotate between weekday and weekend, and between late starts like this and early starts. Ill post a status every time I make a new session.
Blog is going up for breakdown on efficient path to 390+ light and the minor changes to hard mode.
Don't even need to be 400. don't even need to be 390. lol. Sooooo easy.
Oh i know, was already a cakewalk with a low 390s grp. Only problems were people dying bc of being dumb, not because of mechanics

My group wrecked the raid and we were only 388, 387's. Boss took 3 damage phases and he was close to dead on the 2nd. Did it first try.
i havent played since my vanilla 1k, what light am i? :D
Didnt say u needed to be 400 lol. I just got to 39 for the hell of it since Im kinda lacking drive for achievements atm
Bungie has increasingly pandered to the community after year 1 - getting to max light has been a joke by comparison since TTK dropped
Thanks lol. Was 393 light before I even touched hard mode.
Impressive ... :)
Damn nice, I haven't even managed to do the Normal Raid yet.
How hard was the hard raid? What were the added mechanics?
Hard mode on this raid is a joke, like the other raids. Very easy.
I heard the changes were pretty minor. I wouldn't really know difficulty until I even get to it tbh, sitting at 357 light and obviously no lfg group will take me.
Great job pal, I'd like to get back in to destiny but it's such a time sink!
@ Dang3r: I would sherpa you through at 357 light - carried one guy at 348 with no issues
That'd be great Fi1thy. I'm free most evenings to play and day time a few days as well. Just got to 361 since then too
NICE! I stopped at Aksis Phase 2 last night, didn't even want to bother with it yet.
The mechanics changes are minor. Aksis phaze 2 is easier than phase 1 tbh
We only had 1 guy running lifedrinker, u really dont need it. Dont let ppl tell you u do.
I know and I didn't expect it to be hard, the rest really wasn't, my team just wasn't too bright and non-communicative.
Nothing immediate. Just thinking how quickly we lose days, years, decades of time that we couldve spent loving on those we care about

Before you know it your mom could be innthe hospital fighting against the ravages of time, and all she eants is love from you. She's proud of you even if you fail
She loves you unconditionally, a divine kind of love, and she deserves more than an occassional phone call.
And for those that weren't blessed ith a mom like that, or a mom at all, or who maybe already lost their mom, my apologies and sincerest sympathy to you.
HOLY Words ..
But I don't though
Amen brother. I lost my mom at 13 and literally the last words I said to her was "I hate you". If only I knew what the next day would bring.
She knew you didnt mate. But yeah I don't ever want to be there. I'm very lucky my parents and siblings lived through my spiteful youth
My mum died 11 years ago, 12 next year. I agree tho, time is precious and your family and friends should be reminded just how much they mean to us. xx
mine is still alive and a royal C*unt, I think I will skip this memo ;)
Ask yourself this. If she died tomorrow, would u regret thinking of her as a cunt and not saying u love her?
If you would, even just a tiny bit, its not worth the grudge. Even the most horrible mother in the world isnt worth having that kind of regret
I have thought about it long and hard, spent 9 years w/o her in my life, let her back in spent the next year regretting and getting her back out. I appreciate the life
she gave me by giving me birth, but everything else, nah, she is a bad person. Not a grudge, just a simple fact of life. I don't like her as a person.
I agree having the regret isn't worth it, but the other side of that coin, is, living a healthier life removing toxic people from it. This works for me, it doesn't work
for the rest of my old " family " or her, BUT it works for the family I created and me. I am a happier person, better husband and father with her not in my life
The one regret I will live with is that she couldn't change and become a better person. I will not surround myself with negativity even if its family
Fair enough. This is why I said earlier that I apologize to others not lucky enough to be blessed with a mom like mine
And in tha case, I say to voice your love to those you do care for, be it wife sibling child or friend. Just tell someone you love them today.
every morning when I see my boys off to school and wife off to work. Then I being gaming, thankful to be a stay at home parent ;)
Agreed and very well said. I always tell family and close friends I love them before departing. You never know when you might get the chance again.
interesting. one in a million make it

nice one :)
Glad to see nothing is missable, so I don't have to worry about accidentally missing anything!
Yeah they fixed the issue with the one missable blueprint y re opening the door in that dungeon via the patch, so you shouldn't have to worry about missables at all
The Eden Tower step by step is still under construction, and a video with every collectible except for hardware pickups will be added soon.
Also credit to everyone in the community that assisted with the map locations in the collectibles screenshots thread. Saved me a lot of loading time headaches!
THANK YOU !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Good job pal, WTs are always appreciated by the community and are a great asset to the site
Thanks everyone :)
Does 13hrs count as a speedrun? Lol
I did the game exactly as outlined in m walkthrough, so it's looking solid. :)
So the game's completable now?
Afaik yes lots of folks have finished it. I still havent caught up to my old % on blueprints or the shifting sands hardware, but everything else popped
Every time I run Armory Flux, the loot room sends me to a black screen and I have to restart the game to get it to load peoperly. Doesnt mess up objectives at least.
I want to check this game out but will wait until (hopefully) it gets patched to a decent standard. All the bugs/glitches sound shitty :(

Yeah - alot of tracking is fixed - still a few on and off that have issues. But yeah loading section of rooms still sucks. and loading does seem longer again.
I didnt play it between the 1st and 2nd patches. Loaung is faster now. 1 minute absolute max where before 2 mins was common
So far zero tracker issues, but I started over from scratch on a new save. Only took about 12-13 jours to get 82 prismatic cores lol
I haven't even touched the Hardware pickups crap, since it would take another 20 pages of writing to actually write a text guide to the hundreds of those.
I might make a video getting all of them in Shifting Sands since that's the one people get hung up on, but I'm publishing it without Hardware pickup details.
