Vanguard Mentor Missives

Post by S7 Coolhand on Thu Sep 25, 2014 1:25 pm

Basically you can get a missive sometimes when you turn in other bounties.  You will turn in the missive to get an exotic bounty that rewards you with an exotic weapon.  Below are the different bounties and the exotic weapons; chose wisely.  I'm working on Invective right now, but I think I will go for Bad Juju next time, or maybe Pocket Infinity.

[*]Toland's Legacy, which rewards the player with Bad Juju.
  pulse rifle – void, 15 rounds, instant reload, full auto, kills grant bonus

[*]Shattered Memory Fragment, which rewards the player with Pocket Infinity.
[*]  fusion rifle – solar, 5 rounds, missed rounds sometimes returned & find more


[*]A Light in the Dark, which rewards the player with Thorn.
[*]  hand cannon – ?damage?, 6 rounds, final round does more, rounds pierce and DOT


[*]A Voice in the Wilderness, which rewards the player with Super Good Advice.
[*]  machine gun – solar, 58 rounds, most missed shots returned, kills grant bonus


[*]A Dubious Task, which rewards the player with Invective.
[*]  shotgun – solar, 4 rounds, full auto, ammo regeneration, final round does more damage


[*]An Unknown Patron, which rewards the player with Fate of All Fools.
[*]  scout rifle – ?

After seeing some vids of that Pocket Infinity, I'd LOVE to get that!  Up to this point I've only had the options for the bounties with the Hand Cannon, Shotgun and Pulse Rifle so I've just discarded them and hope for the one with the Infinity.

The shotty is also Full Auto, with ammo regen.  Pretty sweet.

Forgot about the full auto - edited original post.  This will be my PVP staple once I earn it.  Part of the mission requires a 25 K/D spread, but that can actually be done across multiple games added up and assists count as kills.  I figure I can knock that out quick if I play smart.

It seems you just have to get lucky to get a missive - haven't seen any drop rates or tips on how to increase the odds.

It's the only one I have gotten so far.  Didn't know the reward, just picked the bounty at random but I like having it.

Control, hop in a vehicle and play it safe the whole game. Once heavy weapons pop grab that ammo and camp the safest point you can find. Once out of ammo, go back to vehicle spawn - repeat.

Or murder everyone in an uber spree of inhuman skill.

Not hard at all Miller.  Not sure what the 25 kill/death spread actually tracks but I got it in about 5 matches going around 1.0 KDR every match.  It is not looking for a 25.0 KDR. Just play and you'll have it quick enough. Kenny got it in 2 matches going around 2.5 KDR.

Just finished it in 3 matches.  It counts kills plus assists minus deaths.  Got off to a +14, then dropped to +12, but finished it off in the third match by playing sneaky.  I need to do the weekly (again) for the next part.  Need some help.

Finished the weekly with Rowdy and got a Clot of Darkness.  Turned it in for uncharged exotic weapon.  Now the gunsmith wants 50 special ammo synthesis.  Ran out of glimmer.

It took me a while, as I had a bad 8-12 game that set me back and then I was at 23 of 25 for the last game. Still, knocked one out and got a Gold Sniper running the crucible!

Got Invective late last night.

Played a few rounds of Crucible with it. 

Here's a clip of it in action.

Spoiler:

Click the white bar.

I have another one! This is going to be my 3rd or 4th. Now I have to complete 25 strikes. I'll start going for this tomorrow with the strike playlist as I go for the vanguard marks too.

That is Bad Juju you are after.  Grinding those strikes I hear is a pain.

I found my second missive today - I am going after Thorn.  This will be my 4th exotic weapon - 3 primaries and 1 special.  Still haven't found an exotic heavy.

I'm on the same part of that mission. One of the fastest options is do the nexus strike. You can run by all the "trash" mobs and get to the boss super quickly.

Picked up Shattered Memory Fragment last night and got thru about half the steps.   I'm to the point where I have to break down 10 rare or better pulse rifles so it's going to be something passive I do while grinding for mats, bounties, and whatnot.  

Chose this one over  Toland's Legacy and A Voice in the Wilderness because I didn't want the machine gun (currently have a pretty good legendary one and want a better primary/secondary) and I was informed that the pulse rifle was kinda garbage and the bounty takes forever.

These things are really starting to clog up my bounties.  Trying to clear some of them this morning, for mats if nothing else.

I got that one too. Keep checking the gun vendor every few hours, he will sometimes sell a rare (blue) charge rifle and you can buy several to help speed that along.

Didn't think about that miller, good idea so I'll have to hit him up.  Looks like buying stuff is how I'm going to be doing everything, since I don't seem to get useful drops.

I've got the one from Ikora Rey that eventually lands me that shotgun. I'm not sure how I will get the crucible part but I'll be playing crucible soon if anyone is down.

Depending on your level and gear, if you play iron banner it can be easier to get the crucible points
