Destiny has always been filled with high hopes and equally high disappointments.
But for the first time in a long time I can say hype has been met with actual fulfillment.
- new social space
- new weapons and gear
- level raised to 34
- new story
- 3 new multiplayer arenas
- new strike
- Prison of Elders
- Trials of Osiris
Ok so we begin finally being allowed to the Reef. Which is awesome because I always liked the look of the place. I’m not going to divulge too too much finer details but I will say I was happy with just about everything.
The new social space is pretty and comes complete with some ghosts, a vault, mailbox, new cryptarch, bounty girl Petra, and the awesome fallen guy who serves as a translator and Prison of Elders dealer.
The story here is that the queens pets betray her and are now going around getting other allies and weapons. (ok its a bit more complicated than that but for a sum up, that explanation will suffice)
In this story you get to go to some pretty surprising and interesting places.
My first play through with my titan I got a good amount of loot. And everyone gets this little pistol which is decently badass.
The new bounties are fun as well.
Simple guide for that-
- go to planet
- wait for wolves to prowl
- wait for more drop ships
- attack and kill big boss
- get ether key
- go find chest
Yeah, there has been a few times I didn’t find the chest in times and a few other times I was able to find chest, leave area, come back and get the chest again. So my best advice for this is look for the pillar of light or watch others around and hope they know where to go.
Now bouncing planet to planet doing story missions and bounties is fun but for me the real winner here is the Prison of Elders. Arena style fight with you and your fireteam facing 3 waves of random enemies for 5 rounds.
Each round is in a different environment with different enemies and the final round you face a larger boss. The level look pretty great and come equipped with nice hiding areas which you may or may not need.
At the end you go back to you starting room and are dropped down into a Scrooge McDuck like vault.
Now your first run though you were given a key for the big chest, but from then on out its up to you to find more keys via the other chest you open with the ether keys during bounties.
What did I get my first run you ask-
See, I can’t gloat any because my husband has been trying for a lot longer (and with more skill) than me to get this.
I was just randomly opening chest and not even really paying attention to when it popped up what I had gotten.
But I did in fact get a Jellyhorn.
Ah yes, the rng god is a cruel mistress.
But anyway the new so far has been great and I love seeing new color choices. Even the old venders have new stuff. Like really, at ever turn there has been something cool to find.
So it doesn’t seem like I’m sucking up too much I will say I did have some disappointments. To have to deal with the queens people and not the Queen and her creepy brother themselves was kind of a let down. And as always DLC doesn’t add anymore voice over work for your ghost. I ❤ Peter Dinklage, I just wish more went into his character.
So my point is this-If you liked Destiny when it first came out but then got bored and gave up, its time to go back!
$20 is not very expensive to expand the game this much and to get this much more enjoyment out of it.
So go, go and find more enjoyment in a game you bought half a year ago.
