Raid delayed until May....for the better I guess,now that they have a PTS on PC,it will make for better patches...hopefully.

Got to W5 this weekend,gearing for over 475 now so I can die multiple times on that last section of Tidal Basin lol... ;)

I see the DZ is about to get worse. Less non-contaminated drops. Everybody is getting squeezed in to one WT bracket. Oh and shockingly they are now making 515 GS drops DZ only...so we back to trying to force people in to the DZ....pretty sue this is occupied DZ only.

So....does anyone play this on PC? I've had the game for a few weeks but haven't really done anything due to no one I know to play with.

I hope the changes that are coming don't go too far and mess up the fun in this game. I'm not going to go crazy worrying about it and any changes that make it over from the PTS will hopefully make this game better. I'm still having a lot of fun. Its been a while since I last played any game in the morning before I leave for work but that's exactly what I've been doing the last few days. I really like running bounties with randoms in the open world since they are mostly quick and not too difficult making them the ideal activity for loot farming.

I've been running across some GS508 players that absolutely suck or their builds suck and are just equipping their highest GS gear. its been happening during my morning runs so perhaps its been too early for some to be gaming.

When I first got to WT5, I was equipping the highest of gears to continue getting high gear drops. I've slowly been working on some type of build, but it all comes down to what I get. So, some of those peeps might be in the same boat.

With that said, I tried going into the DZ. Got greeted at the door and was killed, so was the people I partied with. They would continue to hang there. That wasn't pleasant. Don't know if there's a benefit for them doing that, except being d***s. I'll eventually try again at some point, but I'm having fun with the PVE stuff as is trying weapon and gear builds.

TU3 seems to be a big deal...they delayed the raid for it. So, it has to be more than a few PvP focused talent nerfs. Tu3 should have alot of important changes, if it doesn't have most of these I will be pissed.

- NPC health & damage balancing.
- improved armour/survivability.
- Skill mod changes and buffs
- Gear mod buffs.
- Gear Set fixes.
- Exotic weapon buffs.

I still haven't even hit level 30 yet on PC. The past couple of weeks have been nuts. I still love playing, just can't find the time during the week. Hopefully this weekend, although that's not looking good.

I guess now RNG hates me as well. I'm running 3 piece Wyvern, 2 pieces from Airaldi and one piece from Overloard Armament. I could really use some upgrades for all three of these Brand Sets and yet recently I haven't got anything from any of the those 3 sets. I get a lot of the other sets with stats that would be an upgrade but are unusable to me.

Ohh well, did make progress for my assault rifle build. I'm still testing things out but so far I think I'm going 1 piece from Fenris for AR damage, 2 pieces from Badger but I'm not sure how good the 2 piece bonus of 15% armor on kill will be. Then I'll probably add 2 pieces from Airaldi for accuracy and headshot damage. And maybe take 1 piece from the Richter set for some hazard protection. On higher difficulty the enemies love using fire and it kills me often.

If any of you guys are better than me at hitting headshots I suggest you give one of those SVD paratrooper marksman rifles a try. I have over 100% headshot damage and those rifles come with tons of headshot damage to add on top of what I already have which means elites are melted if I was better at hitting those shots.

They did say explicitly in the SOTG that the npc health/damage balancing was going to be a major focus. That's tied in with the nerfs to the talents that were pretty much mandatory for the heroic tier enemies; the logic being that the only way to complete those right now was to use those specific talents and a specific build to overcome the health/armor of the NPCs, so fixing the core problem (npc health/ttk) would then mean that those talents would be overpowered.

It'll be interesting to see how it works out. I am kind of lucky in that I'm usually around 10 blue items anyway and the current proposed nerf to Patience is just waiting another 2s for activation, which fits my playstyle anyway so I just need to get an 11th blue somewhere. Plus since I'm not running the glass cannon meta, most of the nerfs won't bother me (unhinged will, a little, but I can live with that one too).

I have been waiting for another Classic M1A for a looooong time. I also am trying to find another 100 round LMG with either unhinged or protected reload on it already, so I can put the other one on. I discovered protected reload when I picked up an LMG with a relatively low capacity, but I think it had +reload speed and I was able to mod it down to like 2s. Problem is that I really need the larger size for how I use LMGs - and I realized that the reload speed wouldn't matter, since I only have the extra armor during reload anyway so a quicker reload isn't that big a deal.

And I'm still looking to upgrade most of my other gear too. I like what I have now, but I haven't done real optimization work on it yet. Probably won't since GS 515 stuff with presumably higher armor values will be coming out soon.

This morning got a Classic M1A from a bounty. I'm not sure of its talent but I have some rifles with good talents stored I should be able to use for recalibration. I do wish I could increase the ammo count and rate of fire, not sure if allegro drops on that rifle. I seem to get the Classic or Black market M60 LMG a lot which comes with a 100 round mag. I'm using one with Frenzy and its a boss killer.

Don't know if it's already being mentioned, but detonating my turret right before it's duration runs out pretty much halves the cooldown time, handy in those longer firefights.

They are all like that. Really helps with the HIVE, as it's cool down is stupid long.

I've come to really appreciate the shield as well. I use the one that you can still use your smgs/ARs with. Good stuff, and saved my butt a few times. Of course, It also makes me more reckless, lol...

Do yo play solo alot? If yes, then 15% armour on kill isn't too bad. Not too good in groups.

What talents you going with?

So it seems the communication between devs is non-existent.

The whole "DZ is the only place in the game to get the highest GS gear(515)." Well, it turns out that was pure bulls***. The Raid will drop the highest GS gear in the game, it idrops higher than 515.

Yeah, I solo a lot. For my AR P416 G3 I have Optimist but I've been getting used to the recoil pattern of the AK-M so I'm leaning towards it with the same talent. I need to look up how to get the Chatterbox exotic for the holster perk. For gear talents I'm using on the ropes on the backpack and unstoppable force on chest. For the other gear pieces I'm working on getting some pieces so that I can use both hard hitting for elite damage and some 5% weapon damage talents for more base damage. I'm also using the survivalist specialization for increased AR damage and shotgun damage. The shotgun is used rarely mostly to finish off enemies when I run out of ammo with the baddie in my face.

I'd like to use patience but read its getting nerfed so I don't want to invest in it only to have to rework my build because of the change. Of course most of my gear have mod slots for increased damage and skill power for increased healing. I still have work to do to get this build optimized but so far its coming along nicely.

So, lowbie question here - I'm starting to get purple and even gold gear. Should I keep stuff for later recalibration or not bother until I'm into the end game levels (I'm still like 25 and going through the main missions). Hope to finish this weekend.

Patience has a nerf but not too bad. Will also pair well with Unstoppable Force attribute wise.

If you are going base damage the use compensated on gloves.better than devasting.

You'll be going through all that gear real fast. No reason to hold on, you'll get plenty more.
