The Destiny lore is incredibly deep and mystifying, but unfortunately almost all of it is buried in lore cards. For eg, Vex, one of the enemies in Destiny are known to tamper with the flow of time. They built a weapon called Vex Mythoclast, its one of exotic fusion rifles you get from the raid. Its a fusion rifle, which means it should charge for a second and fire one shot like other fusion rifle. But it actually fires like an auto rifle. Why? Because the Vex built a tiny time machine in its core, so every time you press fire, it goes back in time, charges for a second, then comes back to present and fires instantaneously. The user just thinks there is no charge time. sh*t like this is burried in lore cards for every legendary/exotic weapon.

 

Vex can do that sh*t so basically they are time benders. Can't they just go back in time and stop that huge ball so that guardians never comes to existence and we don't have this conversation either.

Our guardian is the "Unknown Variable" in their time logic.  :P

The thing is, Destiny lore is very interesting (at least up until Forsaken). I used to watch Vaati's vids and was very intrigued. If Sony can tap into that potential it could be huge.

I don't have high hopes for the Uncharted movie, looks like your run of the mill popcorn movie, but Destiny has this dark origin stories which can be fleshed out into a good animated series.

Damn cool. I would watch a series which covers this lore.

 

I remember being super lost playing the D1 campaign because a lot info was in the lore.

I really want to get into D2, but as a noob I know it’ll take way too much time to get upto speed in terms of light levels or gear. Unfortunately I dont have too much free time for that

It's pretty hard to understand for noobs. I tried playing it when it was on GP. Was super confused and dropped. I had played Destiny TTK on ps3 and that game did a much better job at educating new players.

You can just jump on and play the co-op missions. I would just log on and play whatever is available. It scales fine, I couldn't make out head or tail of what's happening and why but the gunplay and levels make up for it. Give it a shot I would suggest.

I don't think you understood but whatever. Maybe if the high IQ reminders aren't working, it's time to stop the the spam reminders.

Na, they stop when those posts stop. Besides, just ignore the reminders like those posts are ignored :)

Is there an option to level the playing field to some extent at least, I'd be starting on level 1 if I jumped into it now. As in any paid dlcs to help late joiners?

They f'ed up by sunsetting the main campaign. And i believe for new players it still launches the first seasonal mission by default even before you get to play the intro missions. So the narrative doesn't leave a good experience. 

 

I was so fortunate to give D2 a shot long before campaign was sunset and had a blast (Even then it was confusing for new lights like me). 

 

Would recommend to start playing and then see some old campaign videos or some quick recap videos to come up to speed. Its best experienced with co-op. So if you are new and you play along with anyone experienced, pretty sure you will end up loving it

You don't start at 1.   every new season, ranks reset and all start at the "new" level 1 for that season and work your way up. So, you can start playing this now to get an idea and when WQ launches, your rank will be brought up to sync with the base level for WQ

There is no level 1 in the game. When I started playing, I was at level 740 or something. 

 

And I used to do Strikes with players at level 1200 something.

 

And sometimes used to get award of highest damage dealer.

 

It is confusing, but I just ignored it and focused on shooting.

I played it for a few hours many months ago did a few raids but couldn’t put in the time needed. Plus I’m sure RNGesus hates me because I rarely got and good weapons., even after raid completion :roflroll:

Neat, will give it a shot once current games done.

Yup, the grind is real... If you don't care about story, I'm sure Bungie will add a 'pay2lvl' item for new players starting off from The Witch Queen. It will get to to the base lvl requirements for Witch Queen, but you'll pretty much be useless without the exotics and other gear. This is what happened to me, and I needed to be carried to grind out the gear. I kind of lost interest and stopped playing. I had only skipped Shadowkeep and jumped into Beyond Light, unfortunately Bungie didn't have the 'pay2lvl' item for sale when I jumped into Divine Light - it usually releases along with the expansion for a limited time (I think)

There seems to be a problem with my ps5. Everytime I start a game it shuts down automatically. Works perfectly in the UI or store or even yt. But once I start a game it shuts down instantly. Anyone knows what's causing this? Already tried the rebuild database and reset data but problem still there. 

 

Thank God I got it via warranty or else would've been fked.
