Destiny 2 Beyond Light: Deep Stone Crypt Raid S12

While I wasn’t really ready to raid on day 1 of the release of the raid, 11/21, although I was close to 1230 light, I kept at it all week to make sure that I was near or on the hard cap before making any attempt. I had scheduled it for Saturday with a couple of mates.

Destiny 2: Beyond Light Impressions & Grind

The new Destiny 2 expansion launched on November 10th. It introduced a “new” element called Stasis. It came after an extended season, s12 Arrivals, and after a long content drought. Did it live up to the hype and expectations? Read on to find out more.

Festival of the Lost 2020: We Made Your Least Fave Even More Grindy (Destiny 2 S11)

With Beyond Light delayed until November, we got another year of the Haunted Infinite Forest, which is basically a cut and paste event from the last few years. Good or bad? Probably average. But what I didn’t expect was for this to become even more grindy, thanks to having to farm Cipher Decoders in order to open 45 chests in at least 9 complete runs of the Haunted Forest.

Destiny 2 Season of Arrivals S11: Iron Banner Misery

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.

Destiny 2 S11: Season of Arrivals

Last week, the new season of Destiny 2 launched. It brought a bunch of changes and we finally got rid of the idiotic seraph towers. How does the new seasonal activity compare? Let’s find out.

Hardcoded Victory & The Almighty Seal in Destiny 2: Season of the Worthy

So the end of the season was approaching pretty fast and to be honest, I sort of stopped playing the seraph tower event a long time ago. I must have played it a lot the first few weeks, but quickly got tired of it.

Guardian Games in Season of the Bounties: Grindy Grind Grind Grind

This season in Destiny 2 has turned into a bounty grind that has led many players to playing fatigue, ie getting bored out of their minds while playing this repetitive BS. I’m no stranger to this, as I took a break during S9 due the grind in S8 (Randy’s, Exit Strategy, etc).

It’s actually become bad enough for Bungie to address the situation in their TWAB. They are planning on changing from a seasonal model to something more akin with how the game was when Forsaken came out. I couldn’t be happier. But will it be enough? The plans are for Y4, and that’s still far away.

Destiny 2 S10: My Road to Revoker

Even as the best in slot kinetic sniper rifle, I actually had no real plans on trying to get it. But with the release of Trials of Osiris, it quickly became absolutely necessary, as the meta load out is Hard Light in the energy slot, and Revoker in the kinetic slot.
