    i wonder why the raid armors have only 27 light and not 30?

    • That’s a placeholder for now, it’s not 100% done in the database yet. You’ll notice one of the perks on isn’t complete for example

      • Raxs

        Cool, I was wondering about that too 🙂

        • jakefolk

          also the current raid armors are 30 fully upgraded , these start at 27

          • Raxs

            Oh nice. Thanks for the info (:

          • ceedoubleyou

            I finished the VOG raid for the first time last week only to discover that the greaves I was awarded only went up to 30, less than the ones I had bought earlier that day in the Tower.

            There was much weeping and gnashing of teeth.

  • Raxs

    Wow. I am very, very, very impressed with the cosmetics of these items. Very Impressed! I can certainly see I will get my moneys worth from this DLC (Even if we a deprived of one of the strikes). I hope everyone else enjoys this when it comes out.

  • Micah Yang

    Wow this looks great. I think we might be doing some more swordplay in the Dark Below. The new perk is called sword bearer’s touch. “Gain a temporary increase to Agility while carrying the sword of a Hive Swordbearer.” I guess you will be able to pick up the swords of your victims.

    • Raxs

      There is also a quest that mentioned killing enemies with a “sword” on earth. These things aren’t just showing up again, looks like we can actually take these “swords” wherever we want.

  • Brighton Molina

    so, one class gets two new exotic boots, and warlocks are the only ones with with 2 new exotic chests. and not only that, but they also got everything titans and hunters got, plus another ahamkara item. really bungie. i thought hunters gathered bones of their enemies not warlocks, well maybe they gather them as amulets. but either way i don’t like titans, but why don’t you give them some ahamkara item for gods sake.

    and why, WHY, WHYYYYYY didn’t you clarify that all the exotics weren’t gonna be in the dark below, a little earlier. i was so hyped for the new hunter helm, that looks like a ninja one, but no that i look at it. it looks like the one from the house of wolves poster. darn..four months until i get another quality exotic helm.

    • Micah Yang

      Same here i thought these were dark below too but I guess this gives us something to looks forward too after the thing we’re looking forward to gets here…if that makes ANY sense

  • ORB1T4L

    Dat Warlock helm… *drool*

    • BAMozzy69 .

      I have it and with the ‘God of War’ Shader it looks devilish 😀

  • Micah Yang

    The only thing that worries me is that if people want to rank up to lvl 32 then they might have to get rid of their exotics for expansion exotics. Or if the expansion exotics have the same amount of light then we would have to only use legendaries. I know a lot of mmo’s add on to the lvl cap in expansions and updates but I don’t think it works with destiny with the whole light system. If the only things that differed from armor to armor were defense and light, it would work but with discipline, strength and intellect as well as perks you would have to give up those unique things (like an extra golden gun shot) just to rank up. Saying that, that hunter in the photo looks pretty sweet. The end of crota gear set looks MUCH better than the vault of glass and I also really like the shader because it adds a sort of “scout” type of feel to you character.

  • Micah Yang

    Does anyone know if planet destiny is taking people through the vault of glass? I really want to play it but I only know one person playing on ps4. I don’t want random people giving me their psn id’s I was just wondering if planet destiny was doing it. Or if its a good idea to join a clan

    What, no picture of the new Raid Scout Rifle? C’mon now!

    • picture the scout rifle you already have

      now slap some bones on the side of it

      there you go

      • Talentino Max

        youre an idiot,most of these are original even without the bones, go suck a dick.

        • you seem upset

        • Tycally Vicano

          while the new raid weapons do look badass, you gotta admit the guy has a point.

  • hey look it’s all the same weapons we already have but with bones and shit slapped on the side of them

    great job bungie A+ 10/10

    • thegoodzz

      Lol people love to hate on this game. Please tell me what did you expect for these new guns to look like?

      • “new” would be a start?

        • thegoodzz

          they look VERY NEW to me. ive never seen guns in this game look like these.

          • true. on a completely unrelated note, clark kent looks nothing like superman. totally different.

          • thegoodzz

            Lol what are you wanting here? Do you want the shotguns to look like auto rifles and machine guns to look like shotguns or what?

    • skf4

      I love the new look 😉

    • TheFossilMan

      I don’t have a problem with you hating them. I do have a problem with you coming to a website strictly devoted to Destiny and talking poor about it. Go to IGN or Kotaku or some random gaming website and spread this crap but not on a website geared to fans of the game.

      • this just in: fans of games are not allowed to have negative opinions of said games

        full story at 11

        • TheFossilMan

          Look I am sorry…you are right what you said May not be that bad and you could still be a fan of the game…so much hate on those websites I mentioned that sometimes I jump down the throat of anyone saying something negative at a place that only fans should be…my bad.

    Weapons and Armor even uglier than before.

  • ORB1T4L

    Void Handcannon… It tickled inside my pants.

  • BAMozzy69 .

    I actually like the Aesthetics of these weapons. Whilst not particularly crazy or unusual in design – they are instantly recognisable as to what type of weapon they are – they also have a common theme to them and in keeping with the Hive. They are certainly more aesthetically pleasing and ‘unique’ than the VoG weapons – apart from the Vex of course.

    So far I have both Heavies and the Shotgun too. I don’t use Shotguns or Rocket Launchers that much but still nice to have, I really want the Sniper. The Primaries are of course wanted but obviously can’t get these until the Hard version is available. I like the ‘skull’ decor when aiming with the Rocket Launcher.
    So far I also have the Chest piece for my Hunter, the Gauntlets for my Titan and the Gauntlets & Helmet for my Warlock. The Gauntlets aren’t particularly special aesthetically but really like the chest pieces for the Warlock and Hunter.
