 The Last Word #76 - Shadowkeep LAUNCH! Recorded Pre-raid launch, that will be next week. Spoilers at end with warning. Likes & Dislikes for Year 3 so far, Armor 2.0 and Artifact at the end. | File Type: audio/x-m4a | Duration: 9207

This week Lord Cognito and I break down the launch of Shadowkeep.  3-4 hours of downtime with all they had to convert, change and migrate wasn't too bad.  The content we received was a lot and we broke it down by a like and a dislike of the status of Destiny 2 as we start out Year 3. Everything from the lack of public events on the moon, to the repeatable bounties, campaign length, weapons, finishers and more.  The moon is haunted and the campaign has some juicy spoilers which were discussed in the end.  Around 1:40 watch out but we give you plenty of warning for that.  Armor 2.0 has some intricacies but has potential to be great, although some tweaks may be needed.   Bungie Blog for the 26th, where some of this discussion comes from -- https://www.bungie.net/en/Explore/Detail/News/48273 You can find us here.

 The Last Word #75 - Shadowkeep Pre-launch episode: No More Pinnacle Weapons, Buffs, Nerfs, Changes for Year 3 | File Type: audio/x-m4a | Duration: 8983

This week we discussed the pending launch of Destiny 2: Shadowkeep, New Light, and PC moving to steam.  It's a lot that will happen on launch day.  We also got news about some changes to the UI numbers, Power Level Caps, Bright Dust & Eververse changes, Glimmer, Spider & Xur.  Pinnacle weapons were too OP so they are changing over to ritual weapons, easier to get and not such broken perks.  Also current perks are being toned down as well for some being OP as well.  We covered the dates ahead and raid rewards for those who put in that work early on.  Lots of details about the PC migration and getting on Steam for the first time.  Not sure what happened with this delay, but we should be good again.
