The Division


#81

I might have some LS gloves :slight_smile:


#82

Got 2/3 of the masks running Lincoln Tunnel on hard/challenging but I’m getting fairly irritated with the GE crates giving me shite Greens in all three crates.

Maybe expecting an Epic in three crates is too much but expecting 1 decent roll in 6 cant be asking too much with the effort it took to get them…

I’ll keep grinding away while the event is on though.


#83

Yeh, it “feels” like the rewards have been dumbed down a bit over last time, tbh. Don’t forget, though, if you get a green bit with a folder icon in it, it is part of the 6 gear gearset and is a higher score (normally) than the normal green gubbins.

O and I am available for DERPage most of the day, should I be required :smiley:


#84

Some good games last night. Will be on again this Friday if anyone’s about


#85

I will admit that two of them were attractive enough to consider, but both were a choice between a couple hundred points bump in one place at the expense of up to 1000 points in another.

Also, I did the Pnats thing last night: I went to the vendor and spammed ‘buy crate’.

30mil spent, 95 crates bought, sweet F-A from any of the crates, 10mil made back and 1500 or so Pheonix credits earned which I bought 4 boxes with and got four more lots of crap out of.

The loot feels broken after level 30.


#86

The God of RNG is just not smiling :frowning:


#87

Yeah, I did the Pnats thing as well. Didn’t realise how much credits I had locked up in shit. All crap, but then I was doing it for the PC really.


#88

Al, personally, I would not recommend spending PC on crates - use it to roll weapons and / or buy good stuffs from the spec eqpt vendors (don’t forget there are 2 - one in basement, one in the new safehouse). Do have a nosey on YouTube for “vendor reset” vids as they come out early saturday mornings as the stock changes around midnight on friday and the vids are a reasonable guide as to what’s good and what’s not.


#89

I just haven’t for the patience or will for that mate. As n0tch says, the RNG gods are angry enough at me as it is!

I also find the PC weapons from the vendor are no better than what I’ve got. I bought a pistol that is on there at the moment and then found something better during a run the next day.

I’ll keep grinding away and hope I hit the jackpot like Naloac.


#90

I don’t think either of us were spending PC on crates, it was just normal credits. Well, it was for me. I just wanted the PC out of the crate to re-roll weapons as you suggest.


#91

I spent 800 PC on crates since there were no weapons to buy and re-rolling doesn’t appeal to me.

I might dig up a weapon from my chest and try out some re-rolling on it so I’m not messing with my main weapons, but I just don’t like the sound of delving in to the meta like that.


#92

Sorry, I was assuming you were using normal credits to get the crates that return PC.

Never assume as it makes…

You look like a dick.


#93

I diverged from the Pnats method:

  • Use normal credits to buy basic caches to get drops and Pheonix credits
  • Sell trash items
  • Use Pheonix credits to buy PC caches from the PC vendor
  • Cry about the RNG
  • Sell the junk
  • Repeat

I need to do a full rework on my kit and start hunting for some better/different mods and attachments for everything and then just hope I get some lucky drops/RNG at this point. I’ll just keep hoarding cash like I was.


#94

Al, the re0rolling of kit is EXTREMELY powerful, buddy. My M249 knocks REAL hard when I use a skill (box / defrib or turret if solo’ing) due to extra % of crit when skills are used. Also, (IIRC) kills = electronics boost or skill cooldown reductions, so as a whole my skills are up quite quickly. This in my medic build.

In my hybrid, I tend to stack damage dealing talents on weapons, eg increased crit / armour damage / damage to elites. In D3FNC build, tend to crit damage, armour damage and elites damage (or increase in damage at less distance) on SMG.

Even through my oblivion I notice quite a difference on how my guns “work” when I have a skill at play or not.

And this is why when working as a team, to be REAL effective (or to defeat Incursions on Legendary mode) everyone needs to be optimised to the nth degree.

:smiley:


#95

I’ve not bothered re-rolling pretty much anything in the last 6 months. I did once with a quick release magazine mod and it turned to dogshit afterwards, so I never bothered after that.


#96

PC for re-rolling of weapons - sorry, I didn’t make that clear.
Normal credits for the rest of the clothes etc. Again, DEFO makes a difference.

For my medic build, I’m aiming for this - https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B62PEmViBOydUWVzSVB5MjVtLWM/view following from a video that I posted earlier in this thread. :slight_smile: I believe it’s by MarcoStyle, a YouTuber.


#97

Far, far too meta for me that Pnats.

What you do isn’t just re-rolling. You’re hitting the meta from all angles with your gear, mods, attachments, skills, re-rolls - min/maxing to a degree that just doesn’t appeal to me.

I could re-roll stuff like you do, but I’d need to start changing and tweaking my kit to support or make proper use of anything good I get out of a re-roll.

I supposed I can’t whinge about rubbish RNG if I don’t make the most of the systems in place, but making use of those systems isn’t what I want out of a game really. The Division paints its self as an MMO but is just not-MMO-ish enough for me to enjoy it.

I’ll just shoot things and be happy with shooting things.


#98

concerned - are you giving up on the Division?


#99

Must admit, I just pick the best of what I have from drops and take apart everything I don’t use.


#100

I’ve sold about 1 million credits-worth every evening the last while. Before this week, I’ve been deconstructing things for resources in case I come across any decent weapon mods.
