Yeah, there's a lot of weird bugs going on lately. Specializations keep deactivating, waypoints to missions are automatically on, I know I still got at least once the "transpo" dialog even though the recent patch should have fixed that. More invisible walls that hold me in place for up to ten or so seconds at a time.

I copied down NothingButSkillz's Fireball build (TU6 version) for my first D2 skill build, realized I don't have most of the pieces or stats needed, so it looks like I'm farming for a while.

But hey, my rifle farming run had a shot of luck and I received a new Merciless. I still have one of my old ones so I'll let my alt have this one for its own Fireball build.

Gonna have to look at a lot of other builds to de-clutter all my shit, go through my stash again and again to remove things I really don't need anymore and to be better able to precision-farm later on. Busy weekend ahead.

And I still need to grind my ass off in Destiny 2, because I think this week is the last week for the Halloween event and the limited-time masks.

So I was busy farming and doing a couple missions to clean up the weekly invasion, and discarding unwanted items I've been hoarding for too long so that I can finish putting together a skill build.

Clan member calls for backup, I see it's on Normal difficulty so I figure I'll help him blast through it.

Yeah, no, it's on Heroic. My peashooter build is barely able to keep pace with 3-4 skill builds that are blowing up every enemy. I am amazed when I am able to keep myself fairly alive, only going down maybe three times and only dying twice. It's absolutely stunning work from us all because I'd heard Heroic Tidal Basin can be troublesome at a couple points (waves of high-level enemies during the final boss encounter, mostly DPS checks).

I did manage to grab a handful of quality items and got the Black T-Rex trophy to show off completing the mission. Now I need to finish my skill build and work on the other heroic strongholds.

Yeah, I had heard the lore for Dreaming City and its associated elements was a mindscrew. I haven't bought either Forsaken or Shadowkeep yet so I can't dig into any of it just yet.

But thanks for the article, it was a good read.

Dreaming City is the one place I haven't spent a lot of time. Currently playing as a 960 Titan, balancing time between Destiny 2 and Fallen Order.

1) Took a few evenings to hash out the Surprise Punch commendation in Division 1 (melee kill 100 enemies on hard or higher in a playlist mission) for the Ambush global event. Used my 9k stamina D3 build for it because using shield bash on every enemy one at a time means everyone is pouring ammo into you from all directions except directly ahead. Oddly amusing way to pass the time.

2) Managed to put together some skill builds recently in Division 2. I got a couple of tolerably-statted gear pieces to finish off my Fireball build from NothingButSkillz, but then I looked up some other videos and found Jett4th's HardWired "endless seekers" setup. Jett said he slapped it together with minimum effort and that a proper min-maxing would be absolutely better, and he was right: I put it together with only moderate effort (mostly stat transfers to mimic his setup), and I had so much extra skill power that it was shocking (you only need 3k max to unlock literally any skill mod in the game, and I was 1,500 to 2,500 over that line). I had to switch out a couple pieces and stats to get better skill haste and less raw power since that was actually wasteful when I could use something else to better benefit/effect, and I'm keeping an eye out for better pieces to use.

But even with what I have, I'm doing serious work and tearing enemies apart with constant refreshing of my cluster seekers. It's hilarious.

I also found a stinger hive/seeker Ongoing Directive build by ViperStealth while on break today, where he inflicts bleed status on the enemy to such high effect that it murders the shit out of even heroic-tier mobs. Granted, he's got damn good mods on his build, but I plan to make a stinger build now and have fun.

I still have to get a good outline for each of several other builds (Tip of the Spear, Aces & Eights, etc), so I have a busy weekend ahead of me. And after going through my stash and either modding or eliminating extra items, I got a temporary bit of breathing room. It's pretty much full again already. I badly need to set up builds on my alt.

So to both test the aforementioned HardWired build against a challenging mission and to try my luck at better knee pads, I ran Grand Washington Hotel just now.

Less than 17 minutes, never lost my armor, absolutely wrecked every enemy in the mission like it was on easy mode.

Guess once I have better skill mods, I can start taking on heroic missions and working through the 50 level 4 control points (at least more easily, because I'll definitely try the CP4s this weekend against this build).

Still looking for better knee pads for my HW build, been grinding away all fucking day today. I have been running Bank Headquarters on challenging to give myself the best chances and to really see how my build holds up above hard difficulty (still haven't tried to solo a heroic mission, but I did a CP4 a little bit ago and was pretty efficient aside from random nearby enemies showing up to add to the overall mobs).

But now I'm sick of playing that one mission a dozen fucking times in one day with knee pads I can't use, and crafting has gotten me nowhere. I have to wait until the loot tables shift tomorrow and start farming after work (assuming that the brand I'm after doesn't get stuck on a damn mission so that I can run around the open world doing pop-up activities to maintain my sanity).

Some good news: I found a couple very good mods for my Stinger build to increase bleed damage; and I have FINALLY gotten the Sweet Dreams exotic shotgun to drop. I don't intend to use it, but I am glad to at last have it in my collection. Only unique exotic left (not counting alternate skin versions) is the raid-exclusive Eagle Bearer.

I also have (probably very briefly) earned top slot in my clan, narrowly edging out the usual guy. He'll no doubt swamp my score by this time tomorrow but I have a screenshot of me being No. 1 and it'll be a good memory later on down the line.

Man that Fallen Order game is so rad, I am loving the boss fights. If you are a Star Wars fan its a must have, best SW game I have ever played.

So I actually took the time to farm in the Occupied Dark Zone today because I needed a lot more Dark Zone Resources (the new currency for that area's vendors) and imagine my surprise when I was checking my inventory and found out that I magically had lost nearly every single trinket I had collected.

Trinkets you find all over the open world in random lootable containers like backpacks and filing cabinets and drawers and whatnot, and some of the items are very rare. You only need them for daily/weekly projects, but most people don't really bother with those since it's always been easier just to farm gear everywhere else. Even so, losing nearly everything I'd collected over the past few months to some bug is a shame, and even though I wasn't using any of that stuff, it still provided a kind of comfort that I had the pieces on hand, especially the rarer ones. I can only imagine that it's somehow caused by dying in the ODZ to rogues, but it can't be intentional because that makes no goddamn sense on the developer's part.

That aside, I watched James's Celebrity Deathmatch and Spawn episodes. They both brought back memories and goddamn if I wasn't impressed with Justin playing Clown, he did such a good job.
