re: Any of you guys getting The Division 2?
I've now solo'd all the way up to the next stronghold to unlock wt3.

It got kinda difficult last night with the invaded mission next to the Capitol that has you reprogram satellites, but my fricking nade launcher with drone and turret build hasn't failed me yet. I love dropping my turret when I have the high ground because it gives ultimate visibility on location of enemies. And my drone has the skill mods with plus health and duration so it's perfect for flushing enemies out of cover.

I'll typically start most encounters on missions with a launcher shot to a group of enemies while in cover, drop turret, throw a grenade or two to cause confusion, then drop drone.

Those fricking rolling turrets piss me off to no end.

re: Any of you guys getting The Division 2?
I did the Roosevelt invaded stronghold on Heroic this weekend for the first time. My explosive build is still viable on heroic. I have to change to a standard seeker for the 500k+ damage but that and the bomb drone both doing about 500k damage while I sit in cover is pretty nice. The bomb drone strafing runs are devastating when I can get 2-3 enemies caught in it, but since it is on a 10 sec cooldown, I will use it for 1 enemy when needed. On heroic: 1 seeker and a bomb run kills most yellow bars.

Got my other build which is CC Based Fire Chem Launcher and Air Burst Seeker upgraded a bit with a backpack with "On the Ropes" giving 25% weapon damage when both skills on cooldown. When adding this to the 33% AR Bonus, 20% bonus with Ignited weapons, 10% all weapon damage bonus, Wicked Gloves 10% damage bonus to status effected enemies, 30% damage to elites = shite melts. Light them on fire, yellows go down in less than a mag from my AR. Not really ready to take it into heroic yet, but it is fun on challenging for sure. Just a few more upgrades needed, specifically more than the 17% radius I have now, want that 23-25% that you can get.

Hey shoe, what was your workaround for finding gear with high skill point buffs? I feel like I never find any equipment with buffs to skill points and have had to redo my build strategy just to advance tiers.

Finding mods that boost individual skills helps a ton. I think I have about 2200 SP in general, but my mods give like 275 seekers and drone for one build and chem launcher / seeker on another. Allows me to use better mods.

Some gear comes with HIGH SP rolls too. My chest has 750 ish I think.

re: Any of you guys getting The Division 2?
I cracked the top 500 in the world for skill kills and top 150 for demolitionist kills last night.

This build I use is getting a little better here and there too. I'm cruising through challenging missions and heroic is now challenging but I don't feel overwhelmed like I did before. I'm just so frail that I can't really poke my head up to do much. My burst damage makes up for it however.

Also I found out that if you immediately start cancelling your seeker when it deploys, it will "cancel" it, halving the cooldown, but it will still work and attack enemies. My cooldown was 10 sec already, so this allows you to break the 10 sec global cooldown, making it 5 sec. Really really increased my DPS being able to hit 5 enemies with 300k damage and then send it out again 5 sec later, all the while bombing them with the drone every 15 sec doing 500k each bomb.

Explosive build is easily the most fun I have had playing the game and I have pretty much abandoned my fire CC build.

I feel like this game has died already. No one on my friends list play it anymore and if I try matchmaking it takes 3-4 min to find a single other person to squad with

Far from it, but it is not in the best place right now. on ps4 I find rando squads almost instantly for WT5 challenging+ or bounties, which is pretty much all I do.

They are delaying patches and content to focus on balance, which is good and bad. If you aren't trying to min/max a build, make a new build, or stuff like that, you are kind of at a loss of stuff to do that feels like progression.

They need to bring the content sooner than later. The raid needs to knock it out of the park and they need to tweak the useless gear sets to make them worth a shite vs a well built high end set. Example: Why would I grind out the Hardwired set which is supposedly for skill users when I would have to sacrifice damn near all my damage? No thanks.

GS at 400 finally. I stayed in WT3 for a while to knock out some side stuff, and now I'm a little OP for the tier. Running the stronghold tonight.

My turret and drone are the only companions in battle I've ever known.

World teir 5 here. I'm enjoying it. The changes they made over the division one have been good so far. Less bullet spongey enemies but more number of enemies. This one seems to be a little harder to play alone than the first one. But overall I'm enjoying it with a friend.

Improving builds is more confusing and difficult than division 1

Currently trying to get to 325 but the gear I’m getting is around 308. Where do I get 325+ gear in WT2?

Keep the highest scored gear that you get. Your drops are based off of the highest possible score you can get with items in your inventory.

Control points are the quickest way to get to 325. Did you do all the missions before advancing to wt2? That will frick up a lot of shite

re: Any of you guys getting The Division 2?
I have been soloing up until this weekend. Somehow is matched me and another guy and I did the Arena in the Judicial district. Then we did a bunch of bounties. I got my gear score up to 315. But have to get to 325 for the next set of missions.

The Black Tusks keep taking over every area I free. Just keep doing missions? Also I can't match up sets. But is there any value to it, like in the first one?

Don’t focus on getting sets until you get 500. You’ll end up replacing all of that gear a couple of times before you get to 500.
