So why don't we hit F12 or whatever it is on xbox and ps4 to take a screen shot and post some division pics?

Like what does your division agent look like, I went for a blue colour coordinated look Razz


and some of the artwork in game... a selfie with the reaper!

Re: The Division

Post by ayohell on 7/4/2016, 11:23

Yeah, he has some good points especially about the incoming patch, where crafting and re-rolling to get a decent level 31 item with the right talents is a chore already (I have 8 level 31 gold vectors and only one is decent even though only 2 of the 3 talents I want) now the system will be 2-3 times harder because of the conversions up to gold parts items as he listed...
8x purple weapon mods = 16x blue tools = 3x yellow tools
13x purple weapons = 26x blue weapon parts = 5x yellow weapon parts
(21 total items deconstructed = 1 new HE item)

And under the new system:

30x purple weapon mods = 60x blue tools = 4x yellow tools
45x purple weapons = 90x blue weapon parts = 6x yellow weapon parts
(75 total items deconstructed = 1 new HE item)

so all your weapon, tool, and other craft items convert them before next weeks update.

crafting from blueprints in the base of operations seems the best way at the moment. the blueprint vendor in the north DZ requires division tech and that's too rare! drops from named guys are too rare and usually have poor talents and like when you buy a good item you can't re-roll the tallents.

The endgame is turning into a grindfest. I am enjoying doing the daily's especially the challenging, they take a good while and playing with 3 others on PC take some figuring out along the way and a flurry of googling at the sticking points to get through but are a great rewarding play!

I havent gotten to the end game yet (still lvl 26) but I can see where he is coming from.

I would like to see some better drops from named bosses. I have gotten ziltch from them in the past.

If increasing the amount of crafting materials to craft they should increase the amount of crafting materials dropped (or refresh rates in those areas where they spawn).

In D3, which is another grind/loot game I love, he is right, you rarely craft items at end game...its all about slaying elites and rare enemies hoping for that illustrious clang and glow of a legendary or set drop. Its like a psychological high when you here and see that. If Ubisoft wants to keep people interested in playing this, they should adopt a similar loot and crafting style as D3 as that game is pretty freaking old but still has boat loads (including me) that play it.

Yeah it now seems to make sense that they make crafting harder, let people have fun shooting things than playing mini games within games... I don't understand why they didn't announce it all at the same time though

Re: The Division

Ok, finally got to lvl30 and made my first foray into the DZ yesterday. Ran into some rogues and many, many purple and yellow elites.

Got some decent loot and headed toward an extraction that seemed pretty isolated. Called the bird, shortly after firing the flare numerous purple and yellow elites spawned and started assaulting the EZ.

I died numerous times but as the EZ was isolated was able to retrieve my gear each time. Then some nice randoms who I assume needed to extract some of their own gear showed up and helped me out.

There is still decency in the world after all!

Next time I called for an extraction, I decided to call for it on the edge of the EZ. I immediately ran away and hid for cover to wait out the timer. When the bird showed up I creeped up to the EZ, sure enough about 5 NPCs had spawned but didnt notice me. I snuck up, placed my gear on the line, immediately after that the NPCs were alerted to me and killed me, but my gear was safe.

When are the regular ARC'ers playing Division on XB1...I need some backup in the DZ!

Tough in there on your own, a good way to get away is do what you did to extract, but as you start use the added perk you get at level 30, it's T on the PC that renders 80% of the damage on you useless for however many seconds, lets you attach and usually get away even if rogues attack.

I've recently hit level 30 and been dipping my toe in the DZ. Managing to take out the lvl 30 mobs without a problem but I do seem to be getting a lot of attention from rogue agents.

I played a good bit over Friday, got my character to level 24 (one more encounter and will be level 25, I am that close to leveling).

Probs get a few more levels tonight, but then will back to Destiny for a bit tomorrow with the new stuff being out (so I'll actually play on the Xbox again, been a while due to getting all the PS4 stuff, and playing that).

Re: The Division

Post by ayohell on 13/4/2016, 10:03

So .. what about the latest update?
It has fixed a few bugs and reduced the payout for hard and challenging missions although made gold drops by named NPC's more common, in fact too common I found it nice that the gold items were rare and an event when you managed to get one. I'm not to sure about the gear score thing, mines 190 but depending on how you set the gear you have up that means very little as it is simply looking at the stuff available to you, not your loadout.
I have not tried out any of the gear sets yet and would be interested to see how people are using these seeing as the gear score for items is higher than most and talents multiply with each part added.

Havent played this week. Need to download the update in preparation for this weekend though.

I read somewhere that now after the update the DZ is even more deadly with more rouges, with someone advising not going in DZ unless in a group of atleast 4. I think this deadly comment came in light of the new gear sets that could stack, plus with more high end drops in game.

I found the opposite, had an hour or so solo in DZ last night, most players friendly or ignored you, watched an airdrop through a scope from a distance just to see as I knew a lot of players were in, it was chaos.. a few player groups fighting for it and at least 3 NPC groups adding to the mix! It eventually timed out with no one getting it haha. I'm playing on PC by the way, can't speak for other platforms.

Been seeing plenty rogue activity in the DZ since the update. There was a group of 5 or 6 running around last night making things difficult. The new supply drops are a bit underwhelming, only got some purples out of them so far which were promptly broken down for parts.

Anyone else having problems launching the daily missions? Spent a good 40 minutes or so last night where the mission wouldn't launch and had to leave the group and try again. Eventually got them done but very frustrating having to mess around for so long to get them started.

I know there was a bug with Daily Missions that was reported several days ago revolving around them not showing up for some users. But that bug was supposed to be fixed with the update the other day. Wouldnt be the first time though than an update broke more things than fixed though....couldnt find any new reports of Daily Mission bugs post update though.

So the other night I venture into the DZ to complete one of the daily tasks of killing 3 DZ elites. In the meantime I racked up a decent amount of DZ loot so I head for an extract.

The usual mob of NPC swarm the extraction site and in the heat of "battle" I see something run toward me so I fire at it...buts its a non-hostile agent. He shoots at me, I quickly do an emoji since I dont want to go rogue and battle it out just yet with another player, plus I had some good loot and didnt want to loose it.

However, instead of doing a salute or surrender, I did jumping jacks...to which he replied with a salute. We both extracted our stuff and went on our merry way. I thought it was funny.

I've not been back on this since the update, been Destiny and playing PS4 on single player again. Just picked up a JRPG today on PS4 as well (since none on Xbox at all). So no doubt that will keep me busy for a while.

I'm on the hunt for a yellow SOCOM M1A....or better yet blueprints for one!

Kicking myself, I had a purple one and then got a yellow M17(I think), so I scrapped it and wished I didnt...the M17 is crap compared to M1A

M1A is a very good Weatherman, picked up the Classic M1A, Tactical M1A, Socom M1A and First wave M1A and concentrated on attachments with high critical damage and critical chance and melts Level 31's with 3 shots in the DZ Very Happy

I've not been back on the this since the update with it falling same time as Destiny. Might get back to it soon, hit 333 light level on my hunter now, so only 2 more until cap is hit.

Other than Destiny I have been hitting the SP on games on PS4 pretty hard finished The Order 1866, and currently doing Infamous Second Son.

Not seen blueprints for the socom M1A and I often visit all the DZ vendors... I keep messing with marksman rifles but in the DZ find the smg's easier I can take on any group of NPC's alone and fare ok against rogues with a Navy MP5 just short of 200k DPS with 3 good talents in my current build. I would love snipers to be more efficient but it's so easy zig-zagging and rolling while hip-firing an smg.
