Dreaming City only? Seems odd. Would have thought all year 2 could have them if they originated in Forsaken.

You're not wrong on the rest, though. I am 717 right now and can do everything just fine, so no longer focusing on power and am focused on my ability build. More space magic, less guns.
The armor is bizarre. People have been asking for it for ages. Supposedly the September DLC is going to add a lot more of the perks we'd expect.

Part of it is I am just burnt out on loot games. I've been getting back into my SP backlog and maybe I'll jump back in for September.

I stopped playing for 6 or 7 months. It is ridiculous that in 6 months and 3 DLCs the game hasn't really improved at all.

Been great for me and millions have returned.

Lots of info on cross save. Long story short, it is only a one way copy (with an undo option). No playing on 2 platforms at once long term. I wish I could play mostly on PC but PVP on consoles. Looks like that can't happen.

The more I read this, maybe you can go back and forth with characters.

I can't tell where they are talking about merging vs playing on 2 different platforms (say you had a separate character on PC and console right now).

You definitely can't take anything you bought with you which sucks. Not sure how that applies to Eververse stuff you get from free packages.

You mean you can't take your silver with you to the platform you choose, the stuff you bought from Eververse will transfer.

Yeah thanks, I think I was reading that wrong. Only your silver balance doesn't come over (not a big deal).

It seems it really is going to work as well as everyone thought (the only complication comes from merging characters from different platforms)

I may switch over to PC now if I can keep going back to console. I don't really want to PVP against mouse and keyboard, but I don't play much PVP anymore anyway.

I think I was doing what I always say others do - assume Bungie will screw things up!

Yeah it does seem to work exactly as expected. I guess I'll be buying Forsaken and Shadowkeep on 2 platforms now.

I have to say, the first couple DLCs this season weren't very good, but I a back into the game now. Menagerie is tons of fun. Destiny has been missing something like this for a long time. I finally got Chaperone and Bad Juju this weekend too.

As much as I say I hate these games, they dominate my gaming hours. I finally got an SSD for my PS4 and ZOMG. I highly recommend one for Destiny. With all the constant loading screens it is huge. For your average "load once and play" games it isn't as huge a deal but Destiny is a whole new game.

Luke Smith is writing a rather lengthy essay on the state of the game.

Part 1 is up. It is a bit long but worth reading for Destiny fans. Some interesting insights into how they plan encounters and such.

Yeah I think I'm definitely moving, especially if I can move back to PS4 (assuming I buy Shadowkeep on both platforms). I worry about PVP against mouse and keyboard, but I play mostly PVE anyway.

What sucks is I think we have to buy Forsaken and the last annual pass for $40 plus Shadowkeep. For all the hours I put into the game though it is worth it.

One nice thing is everything gets bumped up to 750 power on Oct 1 so time to get those alternate characters up!

I am critical of Destiny a lot but the game is a lot of fun right now. My only worry is they are getting rid of the power cap for Shadowkeep, so are like Youtubers going to be like level 2000 at some point while we're like 800-something? I assume it just won't matter all that much but it feels weird to have people that scattered.

I took the plunge on PC. Bought the Forsaken pack and transferred my account over to PC and it works great!

Now I'm master race
