Crota's End PS4

Post by S7 Interseptor on Tue Dec 09, 2014 10:19 am

For those interested in taking on the new challenges of the DLC, a few of us will be on tonight to see how far we can get. I'll update my impressions once I get a look into the Dark Below.

I hadn't really thought about it but I guess I'll be streaming tonight's adventure for those interested in watching.

I should be able to purchase it and be on tonight if you need a level 30.

Always!  We have a lot of 30's now too so that is nice but I have no idea who all will be on tonight.  We have at lease 6-30's in the clan (yourself included).  See you tonight.  Any idea what time?

Don't have the money until Thursday but I'll probably get the pass.  Might not be available to hit the raid until Saturday night because my parents are in town but I might try for Friday night.  Got my primary to 30 and could swap gear to run the alt if needed.

Forgot to stream last night, sorry guys.  But I did get on and play around in the expansion for a bit.  I played the story stuff which was cool, but a little short.  I liked the missions and I liked the new format of getting missions as well as having to unlock the weekly(s).  It was kind of cool to have to unlock Nightfall. 

Speaking of Nightfall, did that late last night with Frank.  First time doing a Strike and then doing it on Nightfall was fun.  No idea of what to expect put a lot of tension on us.  Good stuff.  I liked the Strike too.  It was pretty fun and I liked the pacing.

(Spoiler free) Raid - Jumped in last night with Frank, Kenny, Apex, myself and two randoms.  4-30's and 2-29's.  Didn't end up getting too far but had a lot of fun.  Once again, we went in blind with no idea of anything and wanted to experience everything fresh.  The opening was especially fun and chaotic.  Got to the bridge part with the Gatekeepers and figured out the basic mechanics of what we had to do but never quite got it done.  We felt a little under powered with 29's at that point as the bad guys are 31's for the most part.  We called it a night at that point and will hit it up again tonight probably.

Overall - I like it.  I got some new gear from the vendors and a new gun.  like the first Strike I tried, the story missions, bounties and Raid.  Gonna try and grind in my free time to 31 and be better equipped for future Raids.  I'll post up more once we get a little further.

I have a 20 spot in my wallet on psn and I keep thinking about buying this. So my question is do you think this expansion is enough to get me interested again. I got burned out on the disk content so I dont want to buy it if it is going to end up the same way. The gameplay is not what made me stop playing, it was playing the same strikes, missions, and patrols over and over again.

From what I can tell there's not really all that much added that you won't get through quickly and end up doing the same things again over and over after about a week, if that.  Few new things but basically it's the same grind to get gear that's just a tad bit higher than before.  If I hadn't gotten the season pass when I pre-ordered I wouldn't be spending the $20 on it, but that's just me.  All comes down to grinding the raid to get to level 32...then waiting for the next DLC to grind whatever raid that is to the level cap at that time.  There's just not enough content in between.

I would agree, if you burnt out before, this is probably not enough to get you back in. I still enjoy the game and play every day so the new content is nice but there is not a lot of it.

I agree with with Zak.  However, there are some new layers to grinding in that you can buy mats now and exotics and the new raid weapons require new types of mats (vs normal mats and ascendant mats).  

Also, in order to get exotics upgraded you need special components that you trade in with the item to Xur.  The biggest pain in the ass about this is that you have to wait for Xur to appear on the weekend and when you trade in the item it wipes all upgrades and you start at square 1 on the item (and you don't get your mats back). 

So, there is a little change to the grind and there's some new content, but it's still mainly the same game.  The new missions and raid are pretty neat, however, I would like to see IB become a permanent fixture to the game.

With my schedule being a little crazy right now I have not been able to play much this week but I was thinking of making a run tonight.  Anyone down?  I'll probably be on around 8-9 central if you are interested in joining me.

Should be up for it, not sure when I'll be on.  I've got a dentist apt at 8am so it won't be like an all-nighter but I'd still like to run some.

I'm Got some nice stuff completing the raid tonight.  Rolled with a couple good randoms that had a good final strat and then they carried us to the end.

I now have two pieces of gear that should get me to lvl 31 once they're leveled.  I even had enough to buy some exotic gloves for my alt so that gives him one piece to work on too.  Still need to lvl his helm so he'll be 30, or better yet start leveling his gloves to get him to 30.

Tried seeing if I could work Crucible or Iron Banner to get the gear I need for lvl 32 by buying it with marks and it looks like you can only get to lvl 31.  So, it looks like to hit lvl 32 one needs to complete the raid or look for raid lvl drops from Crucible or Iron Banner.
