Congrats on the Two-Tailed Fox. Even though I would rarely use it I want that one so bad.

It melts Prime Evils, Blockers, Nightmare Strike bosses (if the modifier is right), and EP bosses, so you will use it a lot in PvE and Gambit.

You'll also use it a lot in the Crucible.  I got two Lights Out medals (4 Guardians Down) with in in the IB yesterday.

  • The AC was a comedy of errors for Rippa and me.   I beat the AC earlier with an LFG group, so I helped Rippa out since that's what friends are for.  On the first go, Rippa blundered into the exit portal after we blew up all the crystals, so he did not get the chest nor credit for the AC completion.  Second time was not only a charm, we also got the Triumph for a Time Trial completion!  I knew we were rolling, but I didn't realize we were rolling THAT fast.
  • We also knocked out Dark Monastery.  My Two-Tailed Fox rocker launcher blew the living shit out of the Odynom. Rippa almost didn't get a chance to put a bullet in it before it died.  Then came the comical platforming to get the Ahamkara Bones before completing the mission.  I completely mind-farted that I made myself a temporary pair of St00mp-ee5s to shoot that gap.  Dumb Hunter Jumps..  Anyway, the escape was fucking hysterical,  I died and then respawned directly in front of the escape porta.  Rippa was not so lucky.  He barely made it out with time to spare.
  • I chalked up two more wins in the IB.  First match on Bannerfall was a dog fight, but solid guerilla tactics won the day.  My team almost got mercied during the second match on Solitude, but the other team got cocky and we rallied.  Their line-up was far sweatier than ours, but we had so many streak kills on Zone Advantage and Power Play that the other team couldn't keep up in points.  I was the top killer on my squad with 24 murders / 2.40 ER and the leader on the other team had 35 kills.  That's right... THIRTY FIVE~!  That's how lopsided the talent was and it is a prime example of why teams that play Clash during a Control match usually lose.
  • I got my Horror Story yesterday.  I used it in those two Crucible matches I mentioned above. It is a REALLY good auto rifle.  The only reason I want a Hazard of the Cast now is to fill out my Collection of Gambit weapons.  It'd have to be an extremely good roll for me to keep a Hazard now that I have the Horror Story.  I got my first Assault Specialist medal in one of the IB matches I played yesterday and the Auto Rifle Mastery triumph won't be too far behind.
  • There are still plenty of triumphs to snag for the Festival event.  Priority this Hard Reset will be farming souls for more masks to get the triumphs associated with collecting them and I also need to make my 5K Clan XP donation.
  • I finally got the Achievement for beating a Nightfall Strike featuring a Season 4 boss.  Two LFG guys and I did the Hollowed Lair.  No one got the yummy Mindbender shotty for killing the Fanatic.  Our score was terrible, but it was late and we were all old men that just wanted to check another box and get to bed.
  • Once again, I fall in with Euros first thing in the morning to run EP when I should be getting ready for work.  Satan does not want me to have the IKELOS SMG.  Four 590's blazed to Wave 6, but could not bring down the Wave 7 boss.  Not sure if they knew the strat, because it seemed like only I was shooting at the Cursed Thralls that regen the big Ogre.  From the looks of the schedule, this will be another lottery weapon week, so crossed fingers that RNG will be kind to me before next Tuesday.  It won't help my IKELOS effort that I plan to play RDR 2 quite a bit over the next few days.

I knew what I was getting into this morning having to run my last IB matches but I completed my last 2 matches also completed the win bounties.

Plus the bonus was I was able to reset my Valor so all around worth the effort.

My Valor upgraded to Legend yesterday, so if I can max out Legend this week that will be my second reset of Season 4.  I'll still need three more Valor resets this Season for the Broadsword quest. 

I am starting to get nervous, because talk of Dark Armory makes it sound like it will hit relatively soon..

I reached Legend infamy on Wednesday and I think I am three or four ranks away from my first Gambit rank reset.  A triumph I have requires TWO Gambit rank resets in one Season.  I am not sure how that will happen without some sort of Bonus Infamy period.

I also got a rooster mask this morning from a Tess package so at least I have a mask that does a little extra damage to Nightmares now. (Lot of good it will do me)

My DARPA homegirl got the Black Cat exotic Festival ghost shell last night.  The taped on ears look kinda dumb but IT HAS FOUR FUCKING PERK SLOTS~!!  That's one way to make you ponder if aesthetics is more important than function.

I think I have enough Bright Dust to buy the Colonel rooster mask from Tess, so I think I will probably do that when I get home from work.

I'm pretty close to getting the Wayfarer triumph seal.  Here's hoping that the Flashpoint for this week is on one of "normal" planets so I can close the Heroic Adventure gaps I have on Io, Titan, Nessus, and the EDZ.

OTOH, it would also be nice if the Flashpoint were in the Tangled Shore so that I can farm Ghost Fragments for the Spider bounties I'll need to do this week.

We have had Flashpoints everywhere but The Dreaming City

If they are gonna have FP on The Dreaming City then this week will be there.

Otherwise I am pretty sure it will be the Tangled Shore (since that was the first one since Forsaken dropped)

I actually reset my Valor for the first time this weekend.

I think Dark Amory is supposed to be hitting in December

And of course that was the shell I was least interested in until you said that. I do have the Amalgam shell which looks cool.

I finally have the Horror Story. Haven't really used it much outside of one mission where I spent most of the time on a heavy pike, but its nice to have that part of the Festival done.

  • Yay, EDZ~!  I am one more Heroic Story mission away from another triumph.
  • Why can't you sell the bounty for the Drained Captain this week, Spider?  WHY~?  That is the only fucking EDZ bounty I have left to complete!
  • Clan went on a tear yesterday.  Knocked out the Hollowed Lair Nightfall Strike with a 100K+ score, kicked a little ass in the Crucible, and got up to a 3 match win streak in Gambit.  We're nowhere near ready for Last Wish, so no running the Clan Engram table this week.
  • *looks at Nightfall Strike Triumphs* "In the Hollowed Lair nightfall strike, take no arc damage in the final encounter."  Yeah, that didn't happen.
  • I am a little closer to 600 for my favorite gear.  The RD armor set still needs work, though.
  • I bought a Shaxx mask this morning before heading to work.  It's good to have 80% of the Challenge crap done and all of my Clan XP in so that I can farm Haunted Forest for the next few days and upgrade another mask mod..... during the time when I am not playing RDR2.
  • I finally got a Hazard of the Cast.  It had Ambitious Assassin and Rampage.  Not the greatest roll, but good enough to keep for the time being.  I rocked it in the Crucible and it seems to kill slightly better than the Horror Story.  It helps that my Prodigal chest armor has Unflinching Kinetic Aim and Auto Rifle Reserves.

Funnily enough I just got my first Hazard of the Cast yesterday too. I got it as a drop at the end of my Gambit win where I was wearing my full Gambit armor so that might have been why.

If I am wearing all my best gear I am - I believe - 572

Now while the cats dicked me over - the Blind Well did not. Got my helm as a drop while running BW so I have a complete set of Reverie Armor now.

I have no memory of what I got from my offering. All I know is that it was shit and I still don't have a seed of light.

I think they tweaked the database because I've gotten four straight Bad Omens rocket launchers from my Gambit bounties.  They probably figured out from analytics that something was screwed up.

I think I am up to 594 in my favorite stuff.  I need to get bounties from Failsafe and Asher this afternoon so that I can get the mats I need to upgrade my cloak and my Foetracer because I have 599-600 LL infusion items for that gear.

I also need to grind Arc Conductor kills for this stupid 550 LL Riskrunner I've been lugging around for the past two weeks so that I can toss it in the Vault.

I think I've only got two more Daily Heroics and the Dreaming City crap to do before all of my big milestones are done for the week.  I may try to tackle the Ascendant challenge this afternoon if it looks simple.  If not, I'll be playing Cowboys & Indians for a bit and then try to find a LFG to carry me to victory before Hard Reset hits next Tuesday.

I am off again today - so if you see me on give me a shout. Though knowing our luck you will get on when I am taking my kid to the dentist

I SHOULD get my Horror Story this morning. Worst case - I will get it after the new bounties hit.

I should be on sometime around 4PM or so.

I will cheat the YouTubes to see what is up with the Ascendant Challenge this week.

I am good with either running Dreaming City stuff or farming the Haunted Forest.

Yeah - this game taunts me so. I logged in and looked. I need one fucking soul to be able to get Horror Story.

Sigh...

I mean it won't take me long just means I gotta spend like 15 minutes doing something else.

So, this week's challenge is similar to last week's in that there is some maze wandering involved.

Looks like the objective is to gather fetchits in order to summon a boss and then kill the boss as quickly as possible before adds overwhelm you.

Yet another AC that is not designed to be done solo.

This challenge is also similar to the platforming challenge a couple of weeks ago.  The entry portal is out in the open world and not in a Lost Sector.

I know the portal is in the Garden this week as I was over there visiting the cat in the area and the message popped up.

Yep.  I just posted the YouTube cheat video to the thread. 

I have two cat bowls in my inventory.  I should do something about that sometime.

I think I also have a Corsair Down marker for the Spine of Keres.

I can show you the cat in the Garden - it is super simple (if you haven't gotten it before)

And I still have my Corsair Down in the Spines too so that works out nicely

Cool.  I am trying to light a fire under my co-worker so I am not saddled with his bullshit when he goes on leave starting tomorrow.

Hopefully I will be able to bounce at my usual time and be gaming by 4 or 5.  I will probably crap out around 6 or so to grab dinner and then jump back into it.

If he doesn't have his shit together, I'll be at the office until at least 7 making sure this asshole does not dip without completing his tasks by suspense date or take all fucking night checking off his blocks..

Why is it that everyone's problems become mine, but my problems stay my own?

Since I had the extra time - I hit Level 50 with my Warlock.

I forgot how instantly overwhelming the game becomes when you hit max level

I don't know why you did that shit.

Now your OCD will destroy you as you weigh the importance of getting your Warlock up to Nightfall Strike strength vs. getting as far into RDR2 campaign mode as you can before multiplayer is rolled in.
