As I was scheduling my raids for the week, I decided to hop on some with my clanmates right after reset in order to ensure that I would have my clears for the week early. That would leave the rest of the week for sherpas and trying to get two more so that I can get the Share a Glass emblem. I had an unexpected surprise after my first run.
A new season of Destiny 2 launched a couple of weeks ago on May 10th. This new season launched with some differences. First of all, high stat armor is no longer available in the season pass. The season launched without a new “secret” exotic quest, like Harbinger or Presage. However, it launched with a “new” raid, Vault of Glass. There could still be a secret exotic waiting for us down the line. I hope so, because the two new exotic weapons of the season are kind of lackluster.
As part of Season 14s offerings, Bungie added the OG D1 raid Vault of Glass, which is the first raid that they have released from the Destiny Content Vault. Last August or September, we lost so many raids, which were put into the DCV. We’re finally back at four playable raids now. I never played D1 VoG, so I can’t comment much on the differences, but I have completed the raid 9 times so far.
As usual, I started this season’s Iron Banner, a level-enabled “end game” PvP mode in Freelance mode. That meant that I was getting matched with and against solo players only. As I’ve come to realize, that isn’t always the best.
I actually started playing the new season of Destiny 2 last week. I tend to take a break between January and March. It didn’t help that Season of the Hunt was pretty bad. I logged on on the last day to get the Warden title, checked out the beginning of the season, then didn’t play until last week. I hadn’t realized that you could still get that title in the following season. That’s cool.
Since S11, SBMM in Destiny 2 has been limited to comp and elimination in order to lower queue times. This made a lot of PvP mains happy because they get to stomp lower skilled players. But how much fun is it?
In the last few weeks, there’s been a dearth of content in Destiny 2. I’ve been playing less. I’ve been playing Ghost of Tsushima. There’s not much going on to be honest. I’m still farming for a god roll Ikelos SMG as well as a Falling Guillotine. They haven’t dropped yet, even though I’ve turned in hundreds of umbrals.
