Seems a really odd move to roll out the takedown scaling as an time limited event. With matchmaking being pure and utter horsesh*t, surely this needs to be a permanent addition.

I'm hoping this is more of a tech test that they are framing as a "timed event".

Yeah I don't see why they can't scale it to people in your party like with everything else. I tried running the Maliwan thing on my own and made it a bit into it then got absolutely creamed out of nowhere. I'll run it again now that it's scaled down, but scaling it back up in the future is just annoying.

Just finished the main campaign last night. About 31 hours with no side quests done. Gonna use them to level up using mayhem mode.

Loving it so far. It’s not giving me that destiny addiction that I had all those years ago but the levelling, the grind, the loot is all plain to see.

Looking forward to getting into the end game stuff and the dlc.

Is there any reason to have multiple characters other than nice to have, use their abilities etc?

There’s only so many hours in a day. :-(

Not really it's not like Destiny (early days) when you really needed a solar Warlock in the Raid or a Titan for his bubble. I made 4 but really only played two, Amara which is in my opinion the most fun and Fl4k

Thanks Gimli. I’m running Amara and enjoying her so I’ll give the others a kiss for now so and just focus on the end game stuff instead.

The thing about Amara (and the other characters, I think) is you can make her a totally different character through the skill tree. I respecced a lot but settled really on the phase-grasp Green , Red trees.

I’ve used green only so far. Used every token to unlock the green bar. Was convinced I needed it to stay alive longer.

It took me while but I finally came around to putting 5 in sustainment? it's the last Red one on the left (recover health through elemental damage) and the cap skill which gives you an extra 18% gun damage. It's really good for keeping you alive. There's a lot of good stuff on the green. I go down to the one that gets you up if you die, you really only need it rarely but I'm so used to it now I'm too careless to drop it.

Solo'd the Maliwan Takedown over the weekend. Last boss fight still pretty tough (especially as I knew nothing of its attack patterns or general strategies going into the fight).

I hope they don't scale it back up though. It's a decent bit of endgame content for solo players.

I just acquired over 13 million in cash and I have no idea where it came from. It was somewhere around finishing the demon in the dark mission. There was never a 13 mill reward for that, was there?

I only knew that as it was something I saw in a cheese video they since patched out.
