This year hasn’t been the greatest for the MCU so far. With Shang-Chi lowering the bar significantly since the last few movies of 2019-2020, it’s been quite bleak. I thought that Eternals would be the next Avengers, but the bar was quite low after Black Widow and Shang-Chi. I was very disappointed.
It was about time for me to get my 2nd dose. We were told that we could register our appointments starting last week. My 1st dose was on 8/28, 2 weeks after the rest of my coworkers. For what reason, I don’t know. Probably because I’m younger.
Last week, Festival of the Lost launched. It’s different enough to make people play, but there are some elements that I didn’t agree with. Swiftly as they could, by Thursday, reset was on Tuesday, Bungo had nerfed the most efficient farming methods to acquire Spectral Pages, which were Wrathborn Hunts, Expunges, and the current nightfall, The Lake of Shadows. That royally sucked, because when I went back to play on the weekend, the best way to acquire Spectral Pages was to do public events in the EDZ. FML.
We’re less than 2 months into a 6-month D2, the longest so far, and it’s about time that I gave my thoughts about it. The Witch Queen was delayed until 2/22/22, meaning that S15 will last a whole six months. D2 seasons usually last 3 months.
With this week’s reset, the final part of the exotic quest entitled Tracing the Stars, finally went live. The new exotic trace rifle, Ager’s Scepter, is now available. The catalyst will launch at next week’s reset and the ornament went live yesterday.
This weekend, one of the biggest changes in Destiny 2 PvP went live. Trials of Osiris, and it’s predecessor Trials of the Nine have always been a sweaty PvP playlist, made for the ultra sweatlords fighting each other in order to get rewards at the Lighthouse. That is no longer the case.
I totally ripped that title off from a Sir Dimetrious video, but it’s more of the same this week. There are 4 pinnacle drops that are easy to get when playing solo, they can be painful to get, especially if you’re playing freelance, but still worthwhile, as the Peacebond, a new stasis sidearm, which is really good.
Season of the Lost launched on time after a very interesting Witchqueen showcase. Most of what I saw in the showcase excited me. However, the release day was pushed back to 2.22.22, so it’s going to be a long wait. It took the usual crazy amount of time to log onto the game. Eventually I did.
My team was prepared for the worst for this challenge. In preparation, most of us had tried to get as high light as possible. I hit 1350 yesterday, and was ready for this encounter. Strangely enough, it proved the easiest challenge in Master VoG so far. We got it done in a minute or two.
The last patch from last Thursday fixed one of the most annoying parts of the Master VoG raids. Now, you can run challenges on any mode, without worrying about not being able to claim your time lost weapons from Master VoG. If you complete them on Legendary, you can still complete them on Master. The only difference is that you will not be getting 1320 guns. You will get 1310. That’s a great change, because it didn’t make much sense.
