That shotgun sounds wonderful! I can't wait to get my hands on some exotic gear.

By the by- as an Xbone player, would there be enough of us to warrant making an XBone thread for Raids and what not in the online folder? Just trying to gauge interest.

Definitely. My friends list is a bit thin on the ground after doing the cull before I got my One.

I really want to go raiding though and its be good to be able to get a semi-organised team together.

I wish you could dismantle stuff directly from the Vault. It's a pain in the arse having to transfer stuff to your character first, and what happens if your character doesn't have any available space to take stuff out of the Vault? Are you then forced to dismantle something from your Inventory to make space?

I daresay I'm missing something, so if anyone could shed some light that would be great. Also, whilst on the subject of things I can't figure out, how the hell do you quit out of the game?

I agree on the first point and also with your concerns about the second. Just bizarre.

So basically you're just better than them.

Don't encourage him, we already get enough gloating as it is.

That's no way to talk about cassidy!

Man that hurts. Like cut to the bone and weeping right now.

Nah wasn't accidental cos he'd move for bit not shoot anything. Then stop. Did the same for 10 mins till I thought fuck this.

No one talks when playing with randoms though. I try to be helpful and point out spawns and shit just dead air in return. Really gotta play with some of you lot. Not soong or Dr Shark mind ;)

Sounds like he was just trying to AFK and get the loot.

Just checked out the new Queen's Bounties....urgh.

They award 'Queen's Favour' rep, so no doubt we have to bumrush to rep rank 2 and 3 to get anything. The missions only award 50-100 a time, too, and include things like 'kill 200 fallen with headshots' and 'collect 200 ether drops from fallen on any planet', as well as some pvp ones like 'kill 20 guardians with handcannon headshots'. Blurgh.

Oh, and unconfirmed but probably correct breakpoints for leveling past 20:

24 - full upgraded rares

26 - full unupgraded legendary gear

27 - partially upgraded legendary gear + one unupgraded exotic

27 - full upgraded legendary gear

28 - full upgraded legendary gear + one upgraded exotic

29 - partial upgraded legendary gear, one partial/unupgraded exotic, partial upgraded raid gear

30 - fully upgraded raid gear and one fully upgraded exotic

Apparently there is also two new strikes, The Hypogeum and The Jovian Complex, as well as new story missions around how/why she has fallen bodyguards, known as the House of Wolves.

The new strikes are coming in the DLC. Each DLC adds a new strike and a new raid.

The Queen isn't offering anything I want, I need boots and a helmet. She's only got weapons and cosmetics :(

Met my first twat in a random strike last night. Just stood there doing nothing. So myself and the other player had to quit. Just what is the point.

Not bad though seeing as it's been over 2 weeks without a twat encounter.

I had this over the weekend but me & the other player just carried on completed the strike. It was more challenging with the two of us.

This is likely a stupid question however:

If i am equipped with a faction mark, does this stop me from levelling up with the vanguard dealers - i.e should i get to a better tier with them first or can you do a faction at the same time?

This is what has stopped me joining a faction yet, I've not yet decided if staying neutral is better for armour choices or going with a faction.

If you stay neutral you have to build up Vanguard and Crucible rep separately to get the ranks you need to buy things.

If you go with a faction it all counts towards the same so in theory you should rank quicker... however I've no idea if the rep amounts are the same across to the board or if the factions require more (which would negate the benefit).

The issue you have is if you wait for ages, then decide you want a faction you have to start from zero on their rep. If you've already got a decent way with the Vanguard/Crucible lot then I'd just stick with them to get the equipment access quicker. I went with FWC as soon as I levelled up so I have nearly rank 2 with them and just over 0 with the originals.

Yeah I bought the Dead Orbit one thinking it was how you level up but all of the other factions seem to be for crucible gear, so I've switched back to more standard cloaks.

Bit of a shame I thought, I originally imagined it was going to be almost like an extra 'class' so you could be a Hunter but if you were Dead Orbit you would then have different shit too, if your team mate was in FWC or whatever the other ones are called. It looks like they're completely irrelevant if you don't do the crucible.

I would suggest that if you don't like Crucible then stay neutral so that you can earn Vanguard rep and marks by playing PVE game modes.

Yep this is what I was thinking, then I can use the Titan Vanguard dealer & Vanguard Weapon (Robot next to ship person) dealer to buy upgrades.

The mysterious guy who comes at the weekend to sell do I need Crucible Marks to buy from him or will Vanguard Marks be fine?

As I understand it, each of the three factions specialises in two of the three abilities (Super, Grenade, Melee) and their kit accordingly has buffs to Intellect, Discipline and Strength. So kit from Dead Orbit will buff Discipline and Strength, FWC buff Intellect & Discipline, New Monarchy buffs Intellect & Strength.

So you pick your Faction, you take your choice. Crucible and Vanguard stats are randomised, but obviously have a PvP and PvE focus accordingly.

If you are part of a faction can you earn 200 marks per week? Obviously if you are vanguard/crucible you can get 100 of each.

Factions only combine the Reputation, you still earn marks separately for Vanguard and Cricible. The factions use Crucible marks as currency though.

The game isn't very clear at times. And neither are my posts so apologies if I'm not making any sense!

According to some guy on reddit

Every time you complete a queens bounty you get a "Queen's Wrath" mission token. Each token opens up a lvl 24 epic story mission where you hunt down a target. Upon completion you're awarded with a piece of "Queen's Guard" legendary gear. Now you can either use the gear, or break it down for 3 shards and some glimmer/parts. Sometimes you get duplicate armors with different mods though so... Maybe do all the bounties and all the missions before you break stuff down.

Do a bounty - get a new story mission - complete story mission - get a legendary. She's giving away boots, helmets etc as a reward for finishing her quests. The weapons and cosmetics are bought with marks.

Nice!
