Why do meditations require the entire fire team to pick the same one? The forced single player shit in this game is annoying as fuck

Yea. Or just have it in your inventory, counts the same for getting higher level stuff. It doesn't take that long before you start getting exotics. You start getting them as standard rewards for later game activities also.

I finished the story yesterday with a friend, hit level 20, picked up some decent loot and did my first Strike to try it out. I got a Line Rifle or some shit, works like the fucking orbital laser from AKIRA. Seriously had me laughing out loud with the joy of abject destruction I was wreaking on the Cabal.

VERY enjoyable, coherent, story path. They did a great job making the player feel like a serious hero. I like the new characters like Asher and Hawthorne, though I wish Asher's voice was a little less "prissy, annoying anime scientist," like the same problem from PACIFIC RIM's Brit researcher.

Does the game auto-bump player level to 20 when the story is finished?

So I talked to Ikora and she had the same three missions from last week. Seemed weird but whatever, I took one.

Later that day my friends went on and they have all new missions. But I still have Six in there. There's no way to abandon it or take the new ones. What a piece of shit.

Just make sure your setting is set to "Fireteam Chat" so you dont hear people who may have a mic.

Mic isn't needed at all except for Raid

Raids are the best part of Destiny to me, but I think you will be fine skipping out on this one. It can be very stressful since it requires good execution and you can't be carried at all. If you join a clan that plays a lot you can still get Raid & Trials gear for free for doing absolutely nothing as well.

Plus you absolutely need a mic and you will have to talk to strangers (and by extension, dickheads) in it

If I'm playing alone in multiplayer on PS4, I always start my own Party, which is prioritized even if I have no other partymembers. Never have to hear shit from anyone, Story, Strikes, Crucible, whatever.

Strikes on Normal can be handled by just yourself and one other; if you're teamed with randos, sometimes one'll drop out if they don't like it.

Seems like once you hit ~260 power, it takes longer to find more powerful gear. I flew to 260, but Iíve only gained 4 or so points over the past 2 days.

260-270 is a bit of a soft cap where many normal progression avenues no longer advance you. You need to be looking for things that give you "powerful gear"  to make it over this hump.

Here's one that lays it out better than I can

I still need to rent this. I rented Uncharted: The Lost Legacy over it since I knew it'd be short and it was fun but I'm missing my Halo-type fix.

How often does the gunsmith recycle his purple mods? I want void shit but he's only letting me produce arc and solar shit at the moment.

Should I just blow out my existing blues for whatever is sitting there now, even if I don't intend to use them? Can an individual blue item turn into more than one purple?

Not sure what you mean. The purple mods you see at the bottom are the ones you can convert your blues to.

If you want more void shit blow your money on the blue slot machine and hope you get void shit.

Oh, I thought they were random. Didn't realize that they were all that my current blue inventory allows me to produce. That makes sense.

So, uh, if I beat the campaign, will I get more than 2 weekly quests (1 Crucible and 1 PvE participation)? I just did both of mine for the week last night, and I feel kind of aimless without goals on the side of my screen. I think I have like 2 campaign missions left.

FWC has the best weapons

New Monarchy has the best looking shaders this time though

Campaign is great. Everything is great until you hit that wall of "what should I do?"

This happened in D1 but there were still carrots you could go for.

This game kinda sucks. The loot tables aren't nearly as deep or varied as they need to be. It's like if Diablo had a fraction of the weapon effects and abilities and far fewer different pieces of weapons/gear. The shooting is good, but that's about it.

I was really stoked for Destiny 1 even tho I don't actually care about MMOs that much. The setting seemed cool, reminded me vaguely of something like Gene Wolfe's Book of the New Sun.

But while the shooting was nice and all, the solo campaign was boring as shit and I never had an inkling of what happened in that world or was supposed to happen. And I certainly didn't want to use that fucking garbage app to get a grip on the narrative. :pacspit

I heard the campaign in this game is actually decent now so maybe I'll bite if it's on sale someday...

It's not hard. If you're running through Story, it might even bump you to 20 automatically at the end of the story. I think I was lvl 18 prior to the final mission, and BOOM, 20 at the end of it.
