Destiny 2 raid thoughts and various shitposting. 

Raid List: https://d2.destinygamewiki.com/wiki/Raids

  • Leviathan - we've done this, it's pretty easy at this point. 
  • Eater of Worlds - did this last night, slightly harder and shorter, still interesting
  • Spire of Stars - I sort of want to do this for the emote, but the videos I've watched show a ton of mechanics to deal with.
  • Last Wish - I want to do this, I've heard it's arguably the best raid in the game, this is also sticking around after the next expansion so there's no rush.
  • Scourge of the Past - Got my anarchy, I'll run if necessary but I this raid didn't do much for me.
  • Crown of Sorrow - I want to do this, seems interesting.
  • Garden of Salvation - I want to finish this, I think this is one of the more mechanically intensive raids but it was interesting. 

Other notes: Pugging is very hit or miss (just like other mmo's) I had one group that ran scourge 2x with no major issues and was mostly ok.  I also had one group that ran scourge and had an utterly obnoxious 12 year old memelord leading the group or at least dominating the coms; that was... unpleasant.  On the flipside all our clan raids have been absolutely great, everyone pulls their weight, good banter, fun times.

I got Malfeasance last night.

I think I should be able to get The Chaperone soon.

I want to knock out a few of this weapon quests I have had sitting in my backlog for months.

I've now gone full circle and joined a pug group for leviathan to find out they're basically all new and I had to lead them.  It actually went better than some other raids I've been a part of, although I again consider leviathan to be fairly easy. 
I also have a regular version of acrius now, which is nice to get out of my inventory. 

Crown of Sorrow seemed exceptionally short, I understand that technically Raids come in short and long versions, with the shorter versions sometimes being called raid lairs.  I guess it's unfair to expect all raids to be super long and involved but clearly some are even shorter than the dungeons. 

I have a handful of goals I can work towards, but in general I'm far more interested in going through the various raids.  I guess if I'm feeling in the mood I might try and finish off the forerunner title this season since I'm so close to it already.

Completed Garden of Salvation and Last Wish.  At this point I have completed every raid and I'm fairly confident with most of the mechanics. 

I pugged garden, first group was terrible and obnoxious but got me to the boss checkpoint before it broke up, second group finished the boss without much issue.  I did see a new strat for the garden boss.  They used 3 teams of 2, but instead of sending in a team on left and then a team on right they complete one side first, so two go in left, and when they're pulled another two go in on left - likewise on right.  I also noticed that they didn't do the second boss tether, it does cut down on the dps window by a fair bit, we needed 3 phases to kill the boss, but it was also easier to coordinate. 

Last Wish - I completed this with Tino and the clan last night.  I joined on the third encounter (morgoth) but it went relatively smoothly.  This raid definitely has the weirdest set of mechanics with nearly every encounter being significantly different, it's also by far the longest with 6 encounters.  We cheesed Riven and considering Datto's video is 18 minutes of explanation on 3 different mechanics present in that fight, I think I'm ok with cheese.  We actually had a rough time with the queenswalk section, but I think that's fairly common considering how many posts I see on fireteam finder. 

As far as raid loot and farming is concerned, I'm willing to farm Crown of Sorrows for tarabah, Garden for various raid drops - and maybe do the divinity quest, and Last Wish for 1000 voices. 
I'm still willing to do any raid just for fun if we have a full clan group.

I need to work on the outbreak and whisper catalysts. 
I do have some missing exotics, namely wordline zero (which I have no interest in) and the 2 exotics from last season: 4th horseman and Heir Apparent.  I figure they're going to keep giving us ways to earn them through those exotic tokens and I'd rather just buy some of the stuff I've missed, especially since only heir apparent is decent. 

I'd also like to try and do last wish once a week to try for 1000 voices, but I'm still up for just filling out a random raid spot if we have something going.

It's currently meta especially in 3v3 or trials.  It has ridiculous bullet magnetism, and can one shot everything, including supers, with a headshot.  The charge up time means that you can still lose to snipers or even shotguns, but it's still very strong. 

I used it heavily in pve, but I got frustrated that it can't deal with barrier champions and it doesn't work with match game.

Since this week is double rewards for Nightfall Ordeals, it might be worth it to try running master or grandmaster nightfalls and stock up on some golf balls (ascedant shards) so you can masterwork armor. 

I'm up for running lake of shadows a few times, seems like it's fairly easy, and since we all have divinity and izanagis we should be able to clear it without issue.
