    Sometimes I prefer text explanations because if I am reading this, chances are I am at work and not playing destiny. Also thanks for all of the hard work compiling and maintaining this site!

  • Jerrican

    Yes please for a non-student gamer like me, limited time allows me to read/browse about the game from work and a text description can be very helpful.

    I completely agree with you guys. I probably would not be looking up tips and info if I could simply play it. So articles in text really would help seeing how I may or may not be looking at this while at work. And youtube and reddit and all those social/streaming sites are blocked on my company’s computers. Lol. At the very lest, a recap would be a decent gesture.

  • haha. you a new member

    A text recap would be nice. I don’t like to kill my data on my phone with all the videos.

    Text Recap: Go to the Shrine of Oryx mission on the Moon with the hardest difficulty. Go until just before the shrine where there will be 8(?) Hive majors, this will be in the large hallway before the Ogre. Kill them and get their drops (use a black wax idol if you want) and jump into the pit you will re-spawn quickly and can go kill them again. Rinse and repeat as desired. Then turn in the “Silken Codex” that they will drop fairly frequently to the cryptarch. Use the glimmer you get to buy green engrams from him for even more rep.

    That is my summary for people who cannot watch the video, it isn’t perfect but that is the gist of it.
