Oh, I am. I guided a couple of 30s through Valus yesterday. They were both horrible and died a lot and caused me to die a few times trying to rescue them. The surprising thing for me is that the rules aren't all that different between the weekly and the standard strike except for the addition of burns or difficulty modifiers. Anyone who's done any of these strikes more than once should know there's certain places you don't stand. And even then, if you get killed hanging out in one place more than once, DON'T FUCKING KEEP STANDING THERE!

Yeah I've never even done valus on normal and I've heard he's a bitch so I'm not going to subject two random people to my ineptitude on that.  Pretty brutal strike to kick off the pub enabled weekly.  I might wait until something like nexus comes up but knowing bungie the next three weeks will probably be omnigul, one of the few worse than valus.  At least it's not nightfall, weekly is just two modifiers.  Does it ever have a burn, that might at least both help and hurt.

I hear valus has a nice cheese spot if you have maxed out jump jets and can get on top of those ceiling lights.  Doesn't work so well on nightfall with solar burn because of rockets though.

I dived into PvP today in the hopes of gaining some marks and level 3 crucible rep for the next dlc pack.  I suck but I'm not letting that get me down too much.  By the last few matches it seems like I both got better and the matchmaking started pitting me against other losers so my k/d managed to be around 1 a few times.  I have to stop blindly charging into the red areas of my mini map and if I'm wounded run the hell away until I regen.  Maybe I should just play rumble so that at least I'm not dragging my team down but I imagine rumble is filled with both the best at PvP and a bunch of worthless fucking snipers.

Does anyone run VoG in the mornings (EST)?  I've gotten my Hunter up to level 31 with an Icebreaker and Arachnid for my dome.  Looking to try my first raid.

My group hasn't touched VoG for probably two months. We're kind of on a Destiny break, what with the lack of new content.

I don't have a job and neither does my best friend, so I might be able to arrange some Morning Glass.  I have another friend as well but I'm not sure we can get him out of bed before 1pm.

All of that makes me sound like a loser, but I'm actually an accomplished professional. Ohhhhh, I see.

Tried to find a pickup team this morning (posting in the Reddit group), but ended up with a Crota Normal team instead.  It took several tries, but we ended up killing Crota in the end.  I got some mats, a shader, an emblem, and Light of the Abyss.  It was pretty fun overall.  Definitely want to try VoG now.  I'm on ps4 as ewspider77 if you end up doing it.  We can always invite fillers from the Reddit group or any other group you might be a member of.

Ship engrams really make me feel like I was cheated out of something remotely useful, like a glimmer booster.

Of course, this is because I like two of my ships.

A veteran 32 from the Reddit group was offering to run n00bs through VoG Normal this morning so I jumped at the opportunity.  We had a couple of wipes in the Labyrinth, but overall it was pretty smooth getting to The Gate.  We wiped a few times trying to spawn Atheon (I was holding the middle platform so not really sure what was going wrong there), but overall that wasn't too bad either.  Atheon was when shit got real.  Definitely a complex encounter for a bunch of n00bs.  I lost track of our wipes as it simply took a while for everyone to learn the encounter, but our leader (and everyone else) was very patient and eventually everyone got the hang of it.  We ended with a bang as we thought we had wiped again, but someone had managed to land the killing blow right before the oracles nuked us all.  I ended up getting the Praedyth's Revenge sniper rifle with the Oracle Disruptor perk, a shader, and bunch of ascended crafting materials.  Even with all the wipes I still had fun learning the raid and look forward to doing it again.  I'll probably try another run or two on Normal before giving Hard mode a try.

VoG was ok the first run, but I HATE jumping puzzles with a passion so that bullshit killed any desire to do that raid again for me. And I even bypass it with the Titan superman across the abyss... still dumb to put it in there IMHO.

Yeah, I bypassed it with Hunter triple jump.  I had no desire to even attempt it.

I picked this up again last week and have been going pretty hard at it. Hit Crucible rank 2 last night and also found my first exotic (Hard Light, Auto Rifle) so my gear finally doesn't suck. Haven't touched VoG or Crota yet because I'm pretty shite at PVE even with kb+m.

Got Rank 3 with Crota's Mom finally and upgraded both Murmurmurmur and the husk.  Too bad I already have Icebreaker and Red Death.  I think I still need a Ballerhorn but not sure what else to lust after.

PvP people love a few of the hand cannons and have to run the old raid if they want the Vex Mythoclast.  I really like my MIDA multi tool, Bad Juju looks neat.

I got to the point I was forcing myself to PvP to get marks and rank 3 and it sorta killed my will to play.  I don't like PvP but four of the five damn factions only want crucible shit.  I think iron banner is starting again, maybe I could grind out what I need while all the more serious PvP people are doing that.

Thorn is pretty much the flavor of the month in Crucible and Iron Banner since the auto rifle nerf. The asshats I used to make it my mission to kill over and over again because of their overuse of the Suros Regime are now all using Thorns, Bad Jujus or Red Deaths. I stick to my Hard Light and continue to go apeshit on them because it's always fun to fuck someone up with a now underpowered weapon.

I've been off for a week or so due to work, but I got Invective just before the break, and that gun is legit fun.

After two Crota takedowns, I have Crota shoulders and a new non-Hive helmet.  I also got Crota's launcher so I guess I'm covered in that department now.  And Crota's ship. /charliebrown

Grinding out bounties, I'm back at 31 with the new armor.  I think I will need some raid boots to get to 32.

Someone showed me the light in regard to that arc sniper that the Vanguard sells, thanks to a week of arc burn, so I suppose I'm going to dump marks on that.

My hunter and warlock are now both 32 and my Titan is 31. Need either gauntlets, a helmet or both from my next Crota run or another round of Iron Banner to get him up to 32 as well.

Just did a Crota run today and got the last piece I needed (chest).  Now I just have to upgrade it and my Hunter will be 32!  Also got a Hawkmoon on that same run.  Another guy in the raid ended up getting not only the two armor pieces he needed to get to 32, but also picked up a Gjallarhorn.  Lucky bastard!

Annnd no raid for this House of Wolves expansion. It had such promise, but the game just sagged after Crota's End.

I picked up two exotics yesterday and a Black Hammer, but still no G-horn or fucking raid boots.  32 is so close yet so far.

Thankfully my bank is larger so I can put that Fourth Horseman into it. why so serious?

Crota feet, finally.  I can hit 32 if I wear the Skullfort instead of Armamentarium, which sucks because two grenades is awesome.  Maybe I'll get a Crota hat next week.

Crota hats, like VoG hats are the rarest drops. That said, I got one of those before I got a chest plate. Go figure. That said, HoW will let you upgrade even your old gear, so there's a path to the new level cap for everyone, even non-raiders.
