    I'm a recent returning player from vanilla d2 that is currently loving the game now. I could only imagine your fav gun getting nerfed after grinding out the catalyst, level and mods.

    The nerfs are needed. When you can solo somthing made for a 3 man fire team it is a problem. When you can sit in the back of a map for 15 mins kill the boss and never be touched that is a problem. Supers or special powers are chained without no orb drops from teammates that is a problem. The game is supposed to be some what difficult not I AM SUPER PERSON all will die to me will no effort. Saying that now I would like to see the non use exotics get some needed buff.

    Almost like this happened in D1.... I didn’t even bother getting whisper because I knew the perk was gonna be removed again.

  • Like a Leaf in the Wind

    Now I know for a FACT that devs are making Destiny 3: they feed on players' DELICIOUS TEARS OF RAGE as a staple of their crunch hour diet.
    So... eat my friends. Eat. But... Do. NOT. Mess. With. Our. Vaults. AGAIN!

    It’s Bungie. Of course they are gonna nerf everything to the ground it’s what they do. They will never ever change! I stopped playing Destiny because of just this. They take all the fun out of the game. D3 is gonna be exactly the same, Bungie never learns, they just make the same mistakes over and over, one of the worst devs out there for sure!

    If you can one phase bosses in general where is the challenge. WRT WotW, keeping the white nail perk going on console is a harder then PC hence it’s not used as much. You only need to look at the speed of taking tanks down in general day-to-day stuff. You could see this one coming from day 1... mainly because of D1.
    Power fantasy..... no challenge is boring as.... if you run nightfall without dying and in less then 10mins what is the point... if you can run last wish in less then 30 mins where is the challenge.
    Except through mechanics which make the weapon perk pointless (equivalent to a nerf because you can’t use the perk) what is the way forward..... buff enemy health by 300% (equivalent to a 66% nerf across the board) this will make load outs more limiting.
    We will end up with power creep.... do you want the world first to be completed in 20 minutes, and your first run be 30 mins... I don’t.
    Took my team and I about 5 runs of normal and heroic zero hours running it blind to get it done..... it’s the challenge not the reward which matters. Ps no-one run WotW.... used riskrunner, war cliff and thunder lord. Did use rigs and helmet for supers, but the floor was littered with orbs since we chained supers, but didn’t need obs for regen. So obs may now be useful.

    Lol it’s hardly the “best weapon in the game” but ok

      because it's not. can it clear adds faster than thunderlord? can it burst bosses? DARCI even has higher DPS than whisper.

    I thought things might take a turn for better when they announced separation from Activision but I guess Bungie itself is a shite company.

    I was going to get the outbreak catalyst. Now I don’t feel compelled to since they will nerf the gun. I am not even interested in SO anymore. They killed all interest I had in perusing new loot and even playing the game at this point.
