Also it's important to remind people that left-trigger right-trigger isn't the only way, because you don't just have more fun, you become more effective! Like so!

I am now just two components away from a full MW Jav! :sun: I hope to get there by the end of this coming weekend, but that's of course up to RNGesus. I have yet to pull a legendary item though. :(

Got my first Legendary drop last night while running a GM1 regular Contract and a  “Boss” character dropped it.  Felt good to see one.

Also they have said they are going to be patching improved inscriptions on items.  So anyone that gets to Lvl 30 may wanna hold off on crafting MW until that patch comes through.

Spoiler

The mission chain associated with the manifold is terrific. I don't understand how people call this game terrible.

A Cryo Glaive for my Interceptor.  

 

I think Legendary's just have higher stats than Masterworks, but same perks.  Also has a guaranteed Max Roll on an inscription I think?  I didnt have a Masterwork Cryo Glaive though yet, which is one my favorite gear to use on my Interceptor, so I'm happy.  Decent roll on the inscriptions too.

I use the Cryo Glave too. My favorite weapon for my interceptor too.  I haven't played around with the other Javelins much... I'll probably play through the story with the Interceptor and then use the others for the End Game. I LOVE zipping around the battlefield with the Interceptor. So many different combat options besides simply shooting.

Every Masterwork I've been earning though, first thing I do is do the challenge associated with them to get the Blueprints for Crafting, but gonna wait til they patch in the improved inscriptions.  No point in wasting my MW Embers.

 

I forget which game it was, maybe Division, that allowed you to pick one inscription to reroll per item.  A game like this could really use that with 4 really randomized rolls per item.

hmmm. I was hoping that legendary items would be truly unique. Something that you look at and know right away that you need to create a brand new loadout just to center a build around that one item. 

 

hopefully they get to that point with this game. seems they are on the right track with the loot.

Yeah, i mean they keep asking for more and more feedback, and I think they will understand, a Loot Game needs cooler and cooler more unique loot.

They should bring Travis Day on as a consultant. He did wonders for D3.

Some of the inscriptions are seriously cool, like getting more charges for your abilities -- that's a game changer. It's just a shame they're so random and masterwork drops are so rare. Hopefully we get a big increase to drop rates soon. That'd make it a lot more fun to hunt for perfect pieces.

Agreed! Being able to prime then detonate combos twice is nice and then throw in (literally) two frost grenades and I can keep legendary enemies in perpetual stun locks until I can melt them.

I'm loving the game for sure, but now you can see why P.C. games stay in "early access" for years sometimes. They can iron a lot of stuff out and develop the game without some screeching youtuber shitting all over their work for clicks. Game still has a surprising amount of bugs for a title of this caliber so maybe more time in the oven could have been a benefit... it couldn't have hurt.

Just ran two of my Legendary Contracts for my guaranteed MW Components with my storm, which is easily my worst Javelin.  Of course got the same component both times.... Ugh.


At least I had a MW drop for a Shotgun I didnt have yet during one of them.

Lucked out and joined a Quickplay event, and it was a Legendary Contract literally just ended.  I got a really good MW Component, making it my 3rd on my Storm.  So my Storm went from being a piece of crap to being a downright beast real quick today.  

 

I love playing as all the Javelins.  Now my Storm just wrecks havoc with my combo of MW Ice Shards combo'd with my Lightning strike.

What consumables are you guys using?

:lol: I was wondering why no one answered that question. You craft them and equip them before each mission. They offer various boosts

I use the consumable that gives me 10% more shields and better recharge. 

 

 

I absolutely enjoy interacting with characters in Fort Tarsis. One of my favorite scenes was first meeting Sentinal Dax. So amusingly animated.

I have a purple contract icon in the fort. I’m assuming this is a legendary contract. Should I wait until 30 to do it? 

 

Also got a MW heavy pistol that does 200% damage when hovering!! It’s an absolute beast.

Just finished it but no MW gear? Maybe they don’t drop until after 30.

I don't understand why they don't have masterwork level support gear yet. A data miner has suggested that its in there, but no one seems to be able to pull a single MW support gear item, even when they have pulled several legendary weapons.

Drops for support gear seem lower than other items in general too

Agreed, and I'm not sure why. I get component drops being higher since there are six slots to fill, but after 60+ hours with this game, I've only seen a handful of support gear drops.

Did my first Stonghold Mission. Fucking incredible. I can’t stop playing this game!

My Ranger is 107. 

Question where do you find rare ember or are you supposed to purchase it?

Well there are only 2 possible options as drops for Support currently, where as every other slot has at least 6 to 8 minimum, with components and weapons being way higher.  So I guess it'd make sense it'd feel way lower.  But I agree, some of my characters were using a really low level support for awhile cause I never had anything better.

 

I wish they'd have more options for Support too, 2 is rather limited, but they've said they will be adding more.
