Cool, I just got "The Wolves of Mars" quest last night before signing off.  Now that I know there's a nice shiny gun at the end of it I'll have something to work towards.  Thanks for sharing that.

That is a good "advanced" guide. Here is another good one that is a bit more beginner.

Both are worth taking the time to read. I like how the strategy of buying the available exotics works, as I didn't know of the RNG changes to the drops.

I got a crapton of blues last night in like an hour just running the Court of Oryx.  It says the best way is to do strikes, but if you have enough people around the Court then that might be the way to go.

This is correct.  With an active group the Court drops a ton more engrams as it only take 2-4 mins per round (1 min for tier 1).  Drop per minute is a lot better but that is only when you have a good group going.  Otherwise Strikes are a great way. Especially if you streak 3+.  I think more Purples drop in Strikes once you start a streak.

I've just done some story stuff, daily missions, and strikes.

I was 224 light on wednesday, 292 light as of last night.

I hit 292-293 last week but haven't improved at all since then.  Pretty much non-raid capped at this point.  I haven't even gotten 290+ blues (for improving) in days.

They are out there. I have some of my gear up to 298 from regular Blues and Purples. I got up to 295 and finally got my first Raid gear last night. Sadly it was only 300 so don't count on Raid Gear being OP. It rolls just like anything else. Kenny got a 303 for example. Fortunately my 300 arms did put me up to 296. Little bit at a time.

Yeah, this is pretty much the spot where people hit that wall and start getting frustrated.  I've DEFINITELY gotten my $40 worth of TTK but other than possible random raid runs with guys here it's pretty much at a standstill.  I'll still get on and probably spend most of my time grinding the CoO until I'm bored, lol.  That seems the best way to try to improve.

IDK, I still have quests to progress and I still need to complete the Raid. I have also really gotten into PvP after 2.0 and have yet to touch my Alts so I have a ton left to do honestly. Granted, after 290 the lvl progress seems to really slow but I have yet to run out of content and seem to make a little progress every few days. And so far I haven't really "grinded" anything.

Yeah, I'm mid 290s atm myself, but there are tons of sweet side quests!

I am waiting on my armsday delivery for my exotic sword final quest step.

In the meantime I'm working toward getting Touch of Malice scout rifle.

Is the NF actually worth it anymore? I know you get loot, but they cut out the XP buff for the week.

From what I've read it's not worth doing it regularly, no.  Which is basically why I haven't bothered.  Only reason I'll eventually do one is because I'd like to clear that quest out of my queue.

I am cherry picking them from now on.  Like this week?  Undying Mind with more enemies than normal and Solar Burn?  No thanks.  But without the XP buff I am not going to kill myself. I mean you get a chance at Exotics etc... but I'm not going to do strikes I hate.

Husker, my side quests currently:
- Working towards Touch of Malice
- Getting my 310 Artifact
- Waiting for armsday to finish 310 Exotic Sword

As per the above, calcified fragment hunting is underway.
I'm also liking some of the secret bosses/non-official quests people are finding.

Yeah, I'll hit it up after I finish the 5 heroic strikes for my quest, since it will be the next step. Not sure I'll run it unless it's required for something otherwise.

Don't forget the Exotic Class items and The Chaperone (unless you already have those). Oh and the cool sub-class emblems too.

Keep in mind some of us don't play in the Crucible which locks out many of the things you have to grind through in there.

You should give some of the new crucible types a go, especially look for Mayhem when that's available.
