    I've only had 2-3 Legendary engrams drop from an event - I always get them for turning in tokens or completing challenges. The exotic engrams I can't even remember how I got - only one of the 7 or 8 exotic items I've gotten (emotes included) came from an event.

    I do know that if you turn a public event into a heroic event, the chance of a legendary engram dropping gets bigger. May also have to do with what level you are - I didn't start getting most of my exotics and legendaries until around level 15, I believe.

    Cool, thanks for the input. I try to activate the heroics but I usually end up with at least 1 person who screws it up and kills the enemies before I can trigger it.

    Haha... that thing behaves more like a scout rifle. It's a cool idea for a weapon, but the little ball it releases never seemed to do a bit of damage to anything else. I would shoot guys in packs and never did I see any hit markers come from that little ball.

    I've got one kinetic, one power and two energy.

    I wish there was some sort of trading market.

    I don't know what it is, but the gun play feels like absolute shit in this game. Maybe I'm not used to the shitty tickrate or I'm no longer used to 30fps but everything feels super sloppy.

    Also 'lul' at giving someone that uses a sword twice the ammo that a person who uses a shotgun for a power weapon in pvp. Jesus bungie.

    The reciprocation rate on Pulse rifles (ie that gap between trigger pulls) feels SO FUCKING SLOW.

    I can pull the trigger on scout rifles faster than Pulse rifles and it drives me nuts.

    the rng loot system in D1 was broken before they nerfed/fixed it ppl could afk and get good loot. Shit even in the Nightfalls I spent all of yr1 chasing the Hawkmoon and never got one yet I invite my buddy to join the nightfall right when the final boss is about to die he had like 1 kill and gets his 6th or 7th Hawkmoon. Then the pvp just come in last and your % of getting something triples I got TLW, Thunderlord, and Gjallarhorn coming in at the bottom. Still this loot system is decent for most but with locked rolls after I get all the guns why even play.

    It seems atleast with the fallen glimmer drill they slowed down the 4th target from dropping right away so you have a bigger gap to destroy the one things I was farming them on Nessus.

    Just learned that rallying the flag for an event refills all ammo. I thought it just showed you the countdown timer.

    Also fills your super! I dig those moments when you're the only one there and then 420KILLA is near and others keep popping up and you see them all swooping in on their sparrows.

    Haha definitely these are the moments that have really made this game for me so far. Destiny 2 really improved on the maps, you actually want to explore them!!! Well me anyway. All my friends who had similar gripes with the first destiny have seen me playing and are definitely debating picking it up. Sucks Destiny 1 killed any goodwill they had with the public with that whole DLC bullshit. Alot of people I know say that reason alone is preventing them ftom buying the game.. but hell, couldn't have a more valid reason imo. The first game literally honeydicked people out of their hard earned cash.

    I'm usually the first to shit all over video games but damn this game is pretty awesome, already gotten a bunch of hours out of it and see myself getting many more. I honestly cant pick this game apart, even the shader shit, not like you don't get a fucking million anyway!! Bungie really outdid themselves

    Glad i stopped looking on there after release day.

    Looking forward to hopefully getting chance to do the raid this week. Couldn't play last night due to the maintenance. Gotta get some grinding done tomorrow night, think i'm only about 233LL. Anyone got some good tips for grinding for good gear?

    Public events have really been good to me so far. Also try doing the challenges and stuff. Just play the game and don't be afraid to shoot every enemy you see. I got alot of loot drops from random enemies on I.O so maybe just go around there doing events and what not.
