It’s Reset Day on Destiny and the Nightfall is Dust Palace (I know, I know) with solar burn, epic, ironclad, (sigh) brawler and airborne. Airborne is nice but brawler against ironclad is kind of worthless. Still, it is a chance to pull out your solar Long Far Gone and your sword and wreak havoc on Flayers.
The Weekly Crucible is Iron Banner Rift. Yes, I said Rift.
(Those of you who play solo might want to consider playing the Division beta this weekend instead)
Okay, this is very simple. Repeat this over and over until it burns a hole in your brain. Rift is not Clash. You get more points for picking up the Spark than for shooting the other team. Pick up the spark, carry it as far as you can run and even if they shoot you down you are positive point-wise. Add 1500 points for igniting the spark and it is easy to lose if you only play for kills . Again, this is not Clash.
Saladin will have class items and chest armor as well as the IB Scout and Fusion rifles and all of those are also possible drops.
In the non-Destiny word, Japan gets a Pikachu detective game on 3DS (dropping Feb 3, 2016) but no word on when or if it will release in the US.
I want a coffee drinking, crime detecting Pikachu of my own…
