Iron Banner got its first run in Season of Arrivals and we have a couple new weapons, a short quest and some matchmaking to talk about as well.

 The Last Word #109 - Be Excellent to Each Other - Weapon Reissues - Iron Banner - Tiger Engine Longevity | File Type: audio/x-m4a | Duration: 7916

This week we had to start out addressing the terrible things that some people have been through previously. We all need to be better to each other as humans in general and we also can't continue to watch bad things happen as say nothing. As a society we need to come together to make sure we improve. We also have iron banner coming which brought up the weapon re-issue problem which was the main fear of weapon sunsetting. Finally we discussed the engine we are looking at facing for another 3 years. Good chat overall and I hope you enjoy. You can find us here.

 The Last Word #108 ft Jarvenis (Jarv) - GCX & Bungie - New Light vs Hardcore - Builds - Season of Arrivals Expectations | File Type: audio/x-m4a | Duration: 7893

This week were joined by Jarv (Jarvenis) a great guest from the UK who has been crushing it with great YT guides and more, make sure to check out his links below. He has had a cool journey coming into his space in YT now as well. We had to talk about the awesome work that GCX is doing, as of writing this description they are nearly at 5 million raised this year for St. Judes who does amazing things. We got into the discussion of our content, typically for more casual players who aren't so deep in the know and how the New Light Experience needs some help for sure and maybe the fall will improve that. We have been getting more mods which do allow some fun builds as well. Season of Arrivals so far has some cool beats and some exotic quests coming up that seem very fun and possible story lead ins for Beyond Light in the fall. Hope you enjoy this chat.  Here's where you can find Jarvenis: https://twitter.com/Jarvenis https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCPbVYd8r0hfiBhKSyxMsjiw You can find us here.

 The Last Word #107 ft uhmaayyze - Beyond Light Reveal, New Element Stasis, Almighty Crash, Season of Arrivals | File Type: audio/x-m4a | Duration: 9777

It was one heck of a week in the world of Destiny. We are joined by an awesome guest, Home of the Vibes uhmaayyze.  We got the reveal for the year 4 expansion, Beyond Light. We have a new planet to visit, Europa. We have a new element in the game stasis. And we also got new of future expansions, The Witch Queen in 2021, and Lightfall in 2022. We totally forgot about the crashing of the Almighty, it was a heck of a week but that was cool to watch on saturday. Trials is broken this weekend, the flawless chest / Lighthouse is having error codes as well. We also got the launch of Season of Arrivals. We have a pyramid ship now on IO with a new public event and Umbral Engrams to help focus your gear chase. It was a great episode and uhmaayyze dropped some bars to wrap it up. Enjoy your week.

 The Last Word #106 - June 5th - Black Lives Matter - Almighty Ending - Season 11 Teases - TWAB | File Type: audio/x-m4a | Duration: 7484

This we we first addressed the issues facing this country and the inequalities that all Black people continue to face to this day. It needs to be something we all are move active about how we can make this place a better place to live. Here are some links to learn more if you are looking to find more info.  - http://blacklivesmatter.com - http://showingupforracialjustice.org - http://antiracismcenter.com - http://eji.org - http://colorlines.com  Almighty is teased to be getting bigger in the skybox of the Tower, and after the stream we learned that they are going to be showing us how that plays out 10AM PST Saturday June 6th in the TOWER. So if you see this i'll be streaming live tomorrow on twitch.tv/ebontis to see what happens.

 The Last Word #105 - May 29th - Almighty, Cryptic TWAB, Season 11 & Year 4 Info, Outriders, Backlog | File Type: audio/x-m4a | Duration: 12246

This week we discussed some backlog games that we were working through during these quieter times in Destiny 2. Nioh 2, Inside, FF7 Remake and The Last of Us have been making their way through our devices. Back to Destiny 2 we have the Almighty Enemy ship now visible in the atmosphere, but it isn't moving as fast as I think it should. There are many more factors in space that could affect it but it should be here soon as the season wrap up is coming to and end. We also speculate what is going to be the roapmap for the final week and half of this Season 10 and how we transition into Season 11 & the Year 4 reveal.  We wrapped with a quick discussion of the first Outriders reveal stream.   You can find us here.  The Last Word Twitter: https://twitter.com/LastWordPod   Ebontis Twitter:  https://twitter.com/Ebontis Twitch:  https://www.twitch.tv/ebontis Youtube:  https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC9xJ-_kYMxVGHuL5hG3iJyg   LordCognito Twitter:  https://twitter.com/LordCognito Youtube:  https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCYiUhEbYWiuwRuWXzKZMBxQ   You can support The Last Word Podcast right here --  https://anchor.fm/ebontis/support --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/ebontis/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/ebontis/support

 The Last Word #104 ft Teasing Teddy - "The Lie" Quest Review, World Loot Pool, Balancing & Tuning, Sunsetting | File Type: audio/x-m4a | Duration: 9947

This week we finally got our hands on the Felwinter's Lie Shotgun, but the journey was a bumpy road. The quest got bugged at the worst moment when the community was just gathering steam to finish it. The bug did get fixed this week and we now have the shotgun. The lore behind the quest and that come with kills with the gun is a cool history behind Rasputin. Its a great read if you have time. We then dive into the World Loot Pool, which seems to be taking the Legendary Engram and making it the universal weapon pool. Armor will still come from the activities, but weapons seem to be available everywhere. Seems odd but we shall see. The weapon balancing for reload perks is to bring the perks down to hopefully make space for new perks, again time will tell.  Sunsetting is a divisive issue and we dive into that as well. Enjoy.

 The Last Word #103 - May 15th - The "Lie" Quest, Weapon Sunsetting, Rewards Engram Changes, Year 4 | File Type: audio/x-m4a | Duration: 8635

This week we got a new quest called "The Lie" to start wrapping up Season of the Worthy. We needed to do 9 million Seraph Tower Public Events, 3 million on each EDZ, IO & the Moon. I didn't take long for many to point out that our pace wasn't going to allow us to finish in time.  Bungie made the events easier and added a 5x during the week and 10x multiplier to help us speed this process along. Either the math was originally done wrong or they overestimated how many would want to do it, either way it hit the community at a bad time after lots of grinding this season. We also got a juicy twab that opened up some clarity on Weapon Sunsetting, what weapons we would be saying goodbye to and when and how this would work going forward. The community was somewhat divided on this issue but we took a deep dive about what it could all mean. They also clarified how Seasonal gear would be rewarded in Season 11 [redacted] engrams and our ability to focus those engrams towards what we would like to ear and the fact we could earn those throughout the entire game. This seems like a good change over all. We are only a few weeks away from the end of the Season and the start of the next. Curious where we go from here. You can find us here.

 The Last Word #102 ft cbgray - May 8th - Eververse, Rewards, Transmog, Aspirational Rewards, Engrams | File Type: audio/x-m4a | Duration: 7427

This week we had cbgray join us on the podcast and got to know his history of Destiny and his journey as a content creator. We got his take on top raids and moments of the franchise as well. We discussed the TWAB for May 8th which had Luke Smith talking about changes coming in Year 4 and Season 12 and beyond. Rewards will be improving. Vanity or Cosmetics will be spread more into game activities and less in Eververse. Aspirational content will have new armor tied to the activity each year. Core activities will be getting new armor and weapons as well in Year 4 and beyond. Many good things are coming next year, and while Season 11 is nearly in motion already, the fall looks very promising.

 The Last Word #101 - Guardian Games Info, Hardlight Nerf, Season, Bounties & more | File Type: audio/x-m4a | Duration: 7584

This week we first discussed a bit more about Guardian Games, the data we received in the TWAB with regards to what people thought was some type of cheating to allow Titans to keep winning every day. Hardlight got a bit of a change, but the catalyst keeps it a bit more viable still. They also talked more about changes coming in year 4 of Destiny 2. Seasons will stay as the model but content will stick around longer. Currencies might be seasonal but activities, quests & even some rewards will be available for longer times and wider places. Bounties have received a lot of flack recently for being the main focus of the game and they want to work on changing that. It's not exactly clear how it would happen but only time will tell. Season 13 (think Dec 2020) we might get to see bounty pick up in orbit. Next week they will be discussing Eververse which more and more is getting on everyone's nerves. You can find us here.

 The Last Word #100 ft MyNameIsBYF - Destiny 2 Lore, Trials Change, Fixes & Cheating Addressed, Seasonal Model Thoughts | File Type: audio/x-m4a | Duration: 10886

#TheLastWord #MyNameIsByf #Destiny2 This week was special as we got to celebrate out Centennial episode with MyNameIsByf. He is the the Lore Professor of Destiny 2 and we got to go deep into many topics with him, past, present and future for the story of Destiny. Next we get into the status of Trials.  Tokens have made some issues arise, Flawless Loot feels lacking and could use some changes as well. Cheating is an issue as well and went deeper into acknowledging which cheats they are seeing on both PC and console, and some fixes they can't fully explain to not help the cheaters. Finally we discussed the Seasonal model, how it works but isn't perfect and can still improve as we move forward. It was an amazing episode and couldn't have been more honored to have the Lore Professor himself celebrate our 100th. Thank you all!

 The Last Word #99 ft Mr_Ar3s - Trials Status, Pyramid Ship, Future Season Speculation, Guardian Games | File Type: audio/x-m4a | Duration: 7731

This week we have a great guest Mr_Ar3s, a great community mod and does a lot of behind the scenes for the Destiny world. After that we got into a discussion about where Trials of Osiris is at right now and the thoughts of a pretty avid player from our guests. That led into the discussion of what could come next season and also in the fall with the Pyramid Ships slowing growing in number each week. Guardian Games launches next week along with other things and for the mid season update so lots to do come Tues. Represent your class well and you could have the gold class item when its all said and done.

 The Last Word #98 - Story Implications - Pyramid Ships - Next-Gen Destiny - GrandMaster Nightfalls | File Type: audio/x-m4a | Duration: 8456

This week we got started talking about the IO bunker reveal and the Zavala cut scene we got as a Bunker Clear. Zavala talked with Rasputin a bit more openly than usual and we get a projection and wall lights showing the looming pyramid ships coming close. We speculate the order of events that will be coming to the world of Destiny 2. We also get into what Destiny Next Gen (Destiny 3) could look like with the new SSD capabilities. We do dive into the Grandmaster nightfall reveal later in the episode and our thoughts on how this does seem to be a misstep in a few ways both the timing of the reveal, lack of earlier communication, rewards being lackluster and more.

 The Last Word #97 ft Man_at_Arms2112 - Trials Woes & needed Fixes, Hardlight meta thoughts, Bungie w/out Activision? | File Type: audio/x-m4a | Duration: 7333

On the podcast this week we have our guest, Man At Arms, and this episode may have a bit more language in it but its a great listen. We discuss the state of Trials with regards to cheating, rewards, meta weapons like Hard Light, and its Longevity. We also discussed the idea that is Bungie doing a better job with Destiny 2 since the departure from Activision. Seasons and activities right now are light for PvE and Trials isn't hitting. It's an odd time in Destiny for sure. You can find Man_At_Arms in any of the places below: https://twitter.com/Man_at_Arms2112 You can find us here.
