This is the update PVE players have been waiting for! Good job guys, I'm over the moon with these changes.

04-12-2018, 11:41 AM
Do incursions also have 20% or is it just for Legendary missions?

04-12-2018, 11:58 AM
I wonder - when does the Global Events start and end?

Start date of the next Global Event is still TBA. We will let you know as soon as it is nailed down.

I am a casual PVE player that only goes in the DZ for the weekly. Otherwise I stay away from that place; I have to say that this latest patch is a breath of fresh air to those of us that don't get into the PVP aspect of the game.

Just wanted to say great job on this update; it has been long overdue!

04-12-2018, 08:29 PM
I see nothing about no longer blowing yourself up with Firecrest. is that a 1.8.2 thing or was it just left off the list??

Classified Gear
Classified Firecrest 6 piece talent now makes the player immune to the fiery explosion caused by the burning targets.

It's right there.

04-13-2018, 09:25 AM
Forgive my ignorance, season pass supply drops are? I understand the rest of it, just not what this means?

04-13-2018, 10:07 AM
there are Supply drops that Season pass owners get that drop outside the dark zone that usually give good stuff to the players. It has no timer and the player can pick it up at any time

04-13-2018, 10:50 AM

Are those weekly? Monthly? I havent had one drop in quite a while?

So The Global event can start tomorrow or in 3-4-5-6-7 weeks then, huh?.. :nonchalance:

04-13-2018, 07:05 PM
1st exotic for me to drop in my 5 phases in the underground, in a 2 phase as the 3 wielded nothing, was The House. Which just happened to have the same as one of my others, vicious and accurate 25%. As i rolled out accurate last time i may just keep it this time.

Thanked the gods and weny into the dz to farm. Probably got a good 700 dtech today. 150 from the new caches, i didnt save any previously as tbh, didnt care too. I enjoy dtech runs at the mo, bit of a thrill to extract and avoid people etc.

The named bosses are definitely a bit harder, the game looks great, loads online doing alsorts. Good job guys

Just in case you haven't noticed, this game is for both types of players, let em whinge.. it's hard to have any respect for many of the psychpathic mugs and cheats running around ********ing weak and solo players in DZ, again some balancing needs to be done for groups power in DZ, nearly impossible to survive even fully optimised gear of any sort when 2-3 heroes decide to target isolated players. For my wishes I would make sure groups are penalised by a factor based on their numbers, ie put a % across ALL their gear to lessen ALL aspects, firepower to skills etc, some way to allow solo players a chance to compete.

The sad part is it has taken so long to get PVE environment up to some rewarding levels. Still awaiting for some balancing for single only players, there is far too much emphasis on group dynamics and ability to take on legendary and incursions etc. There should be some lessening of NPC power etc if a single player wants to do these otherwise nearly impossible missions.

That's my whinge as a solo player!

Anyone else find the drop rate of ANY classified almost non existent since the update? I have ony gotten 2 classified drops since update. One was open world boss and other was season pass supply drop. Did I miss the memo?

04-23-2018, 08:52 PM
I played this on pts and it was great now that it has been released I can say it has been nerfed again doing this solo is virtually impossible for me and doing it with a friend or friends is even worse enemy AI are just bullet sponges now I definitely know this game is for pro based players you are not even thinking of the players who find games like this difficult. now I've been playing this game for a while now and you would assume as a long time player y would get better right well no because you boost the enemy AI into bullet sponges and they are way ahead in lvl so how does that work they are a lot stronger with better guns auto aim and they come at you in hordes it just doesn't make sense but now I think about it probably a waste of time writing this right.

04-24-2018, 12:46 PM
I have read your post and am trying to understand it, what are you doing Solo that is impossible.
