Dibs on Athena!

By SeanmcR6 - Posted on 18 September 2014

I've been at level 21 for 3 days now and I'm not finding ANY legendary stuff and therefore cannot increase my characters level. I've done about 3 solid hours of farming. Nothing but useless uncommon weapons/armor. I did a hard daily strike last night. Look us almost an hour to defeat, I got 3 vanguard points and 100 vanguard rep. 3! In order to buy legendary armour (to increase rank) I need to reach vanguard level 2. That requires 2000 reputation and around 125 points. So I would need to complete 20 Hard strikes. At 2 a day, that's 10 days. To earn enough to buy ONE piece of armour. And that's for hard strikes/challenges. Regular gameplay is only pays out a half of that.

Check out these stats about how often you actually get rare/legendary goods posted at Kotaku:

I realize they want this game to have looooong legs. Something you play for years. Unfortunately, it gets real boring, real fast when the payoff for play is so small and takes so long. I enjoyed this game from the start, when your gameplay builds your character, but this glass ceiling is killing the game for me. They're making a long term game for the ADHD generation! Doubtful that will work.

On the plus side, here's a new trailer for Borderlands Pre-Sequel :) Seriously, if Destiny doesn't start to provide some payoff for playing, I'll completely forget about it as soon as this is out!!
