Destiny

Top 10 Destiny The Game Tips

Destiny Beta Will Be Available To PlayStation Fans in July from Flickr via Wylio

Destiny is a futuristic, first-person shooter video game released September 9, 2014.  It’s the first of its kind being an MMORPG FPS.  Players can explore planets while killing off evil aliens and upgrading weapons and armor with other players online.

The Top 10 Tips You Need To Know For Destiny

1.  How to Obtain More Ascendant Materials

There are a number of ways to gain Ascendant materials to upgrade your gear.

  • Dismantling Legendary gear (2-6 Ascendant materials depending if upgraded)
  • Earning a Gold Tier rating at a live event (1 per day)
  • Opening a chest in the Vault of Glass (possibly up to 3)
  • Decrypting any Rare or higher engram (random chance)
  • Crucible reward (random chance)

If you have at least level 2 Vanguard or Crucible reputation, you can purchase a pair of Legendary boots for 65 Marks and dismantle them for 2-3 Ascendant Shards.

2.  Resources And What They’re For

Upgrading your gear is key if you want to attempt the higher level raids and strikes in Destiny.  You’ll need to harvest the resources from each planet to do so.  Don’t turn in your planet resources for reputation because you’ll want to save it for your higher level weapon upgrades.

  • Earth – Spinmetal
  • Moon – Helium Filaments
  • Venus – Spirit Bloom
  • Mars – Relic Iron

The best way to locate resources is to team up with a friend, hop on your Sparrows, and make laps around the map looking for anything glowing.  Having a second perspective will help you cover more ground.  Just communicate with your teammate when either of you find a resource or chest.

As of Bungie’s Dec. 1, 2014 update, 20 resources can be purchased for either 10 Vanguard or Crucible Marks at the Tower.

At early levels you’ll start receiving items that are useful later on.

  • Strange Coin – Purchasing Exotic gear and Exotic Shards
  • Mote of Light – Purchasing Exotic Engrams
  • Ascendant Shard – Upgrading Legendary armor
  • Ascendant Energy – Upgrading Legendary weapons

3.  Xur, Agent of the Nine

Xur, a mysterious character that spawns in one of several locations in the Tower only on Fridays and Saturdays.  Xur accepts Strange Coins and Motes of Light as payment.

  • Exotic Armor – 13 Strange Coins
  • Exotic Weapons – 23 Strange Coins
  • Exotic Engrams – 23 Motes of Light
  • Exotic Shard – 7 Strange Coins
  • Weapon Telemetry – 1 Strange Coin (XP boost for 30 minutes)
  • Sparrow Upgrade – 23 Strange Coins (durability, speed, trail color)

4.  The Key To Turning In Bounties

When you turn in a bounty, make sure to equip the subclass, weapons, and armor pieces you want the XP to go toward.  Don’t waste the bounty XP on something that’s already maxed out.

Xur has special items for purchase called Telemetry that will grant XP boosts for your weapons that lasts 30 minutes.  Complete as many bounties as you can, consume the XP boost, then turn in your bounties to get the most benefit.

With every bounty turned in, you have a small, random chance to log a special Exotic Bounty, which will reward you with an Exotic weapon once you complete it.

5.  Legendary Gear By Reputation

Players can choose a reputation that will eventually grant access to purchasing Legendary weapons and armor.  If you equip the colors of one of the below factions, any Vanguard or Crucible bounty turned in will only go toward reputation to the chosen faction.

  • Dead Orbit – Grants access to Legendary weapons and armor.  Armor has Discipline and Strength.
  • Future War Cult – Grants access to Legendary weapons and armor.  Armor has Intellect and Discipline.
  • New Monarchy – Grants access to Legendary weapons and armor.  Armor has Intellect and Strength.

If you do not equip a specific faction’s colors, bounty reputation will go to either Vanguard or Crucible, depending on the bounty type.

  • Vanguard – Grants access to purchasing Legendary weapons and armor with Vanguard Marks.
  • Crucible – Grants access to purchasing Legendary weapons and armor with Crucible Marks.

6.  The Cryptarch

The Cryptarch, Master Rahool, is a man located in the Tower that will decode any mystery items you come across.  These mystery items, Engrams, are rewards from completing missions, strikes, Crucible matches, or loots found on the ground from killing enemies.  Once decoded, the item may turn into a weapon, piece of armor, ascendant material, strange coin, or mote of light.

With every item decoded, you gain reputation toward the Cryptarch rank.  At every new level Cryptarch rank, you will receive 2 or 3 random Engrams in your mailbox.

As of Bungie’s Dec. 1, 2014 update, turning in Engrams will gain less reputation toward the Cryptarch, but new rank rewards now have a higher chance of being Legendary Engrams.

7.  Leveling Past 20

Leveling past 20 requires equipping Rare, Legendary, or Exotic armor that has Light points.  The Light points on your armor will increase as you upgrade the armor’s defense, thus increasing your level as well.  Eventually, Legendary or Exotic armor will require Ascendant Shards to fully upgrade its Light and defense.

The higher your level, the better you take damage as well as deal it.  This is not including your actual attack and defense stats, but a level modification curve instead (does not count in Crucible).

8.  Sub Classes

At level 15, each class can choose to either switch to the other subclass with new abilities or continue to build the abilities of the current subclass.  For example, Titans start as Strikers, an offensive subclass, but can switch to Defenders, a defensive subclass. If you choose to switch, the new subclass will start with absolutely nothing.  That is, you’ll have no grenade ability, no Lift, no super ability and all of those must be gained back through XP.

Titan

  • Striker – Smash the ground and dissolve enemies in a maelstrom of Arc Light.
  • Defender – Shape Void Light into an indestructible shield to protect you and your allies from harm.

Hunter

  • Gunslinger – Summon a flaming pistol which disintegrates enemies with Solar Light.
  • Bladedancer – Charge your blade with Arc Light and consume your foes with lightning.

Warlock

  • Voidwalker – Hurl an explosive bolt of Void Light at the enemy, disintegrating those caught within its blast.
  • Sunsinger – Fill yourself with Solar Light, dramatically increasing the effectiveness of all your abilities.

9.   Create An Alternate Character

You will eventually gain gear for a class that is not your own.  You could simply dismantle the gear or you could play an alternate character on the side for fun.

Let’s say your main character is level 20+, doesn’t need XP, but needs some planet resource material to upgrade gear.  Instead of using your main, hop on your low level alt and Patrol other planets for material.  This is a great way to XP your alt on the side by killing off enemies while finding resources for your main.  Just don’t forget to put the resources in your bank.

The Weekly Heroic and Weekly Nightfall Strikes reward Strange Coins and can be completed only once a week per character.  This means you can double or triple your number of Strange Coins every week if you just complete the strikes once again on your alternate character(s).

10.  Ways To Gain Experience Points

Gaining XP allows you to level up, increase your abilities, and improve your weapons and armor.

  • Killing Enemies– Each mission will have you killing hoards of aliens and most likely a difficult final boss.  If you really want to gain XP, stray from completing the mission and explore the rest of the territory.  You’ll find plenty more enemies to kill which will get you closer to your next level or upgrade.
  • Completing Crucible Matches – The Crucible is the online multiplayer head-to-head matches.  There are several game types to choose from that will reward Crucible reputation, marks, and gear, but there will be one random “XP reward” match that gives XP as well.  Just hover your cursor over the different game types to see which one rewards XP.
  • Completing Bounties – Bounties play a huge role in the world of Destiny and give reputation points as well as up to 5,000 XP for a single bounty.  Just go to the Bounty Tracker at the tower to see what’s available.
  • Completing Missions – Certain missions will grant you additional XP bonuses as well as other rewards after you talk to your head master.  Missions also progress the story line.

7.  Are you feeling this?  I love you.

8.  You know, sometimes it’s expected for the woman to pay.

Top 10 Obstacle Course Races

© 2013 DVIDSHUB, Flickr | CC-BY | via Wylio

Top 10 Obstacle Course Races

Obstacle course races offer exhilarating experiences that will test your physical and mental endurance.

The most popular course type is the mud run, where participants can expect to climb over wooden walls or up rope, trek through mud and icy waters, crawl under barbed wire, carry heavy objects, and much more.

This list shows some of the most intense mud runs as well as some other very unique and interesting courses. 

Don’t forget to read 7 Useful Tips You Need To Use During A Race.

1.  The Zombie Mud Run

Participants wear a flag football belt with 3 flags while running the course.  “Zombies” are posted up are various locations throughout the course and try to take your flags.  Your goal is to get to the end of the 5K obstacle course with at least 1 flag left.  Participants choose to be either a human or zombie.

2.  Badass Dash

Compete in this obstacle course alongside your dog in the Canine Companion Division.  This course is specially designed for dogs of any shape, size, or breed.  You and your dog can expect to run through sand, water, and mud, climb over barricades and hurdles, and low crawl through tunnels. There are also two regular obstacle course divisions for running without a K9 companion.

3.  Born Survivor

Designed by Elite Royal Marines British Commandos, this event comes in a 10K course with 30+ obstacles and a 42K marathon with 120+ obstacles.  Did you just hear me?  A 42K with over 120 obstacles!  This is considered the ultimate military obstacle course and is only held in the UK.

4.  Alpha Warrior

No mud.  No miles.  This course is 125 tons of steel, 5,500 man hours to build, and over 500,000 custom welds.  You’ll want to come prepared with good upper body and grip strength.  It’s a massive metal obstacle course similar to the one on the Ninja Warrior TV show.

5.  Hit and Run 5K

A 5K course consisting of inflatable bounce-house obstacles, water jets, catapults, mountains of foam, dodge ball cannons, water slides, and much more.  The obstacles are similar to the ones on the TV show Wipeout.

6.  Death Race

Only 10% of all participants will finish this race.  This 48+ hour event is designed to break you physically, mentally, and emotionally.  Expect to wear a backpack the whole time and carry equipment like axes, bicycles, buckets, and shovels to complete various tasks like uprooting stumps, chopping firewood, and more.

7.  Cerebrun

A 7+ mile course with 20 obstacles and 8 puzzles to solve.  Participants who can’t solve the mathematics and logic-based puzzles must run a more difficult route or carry heavy sandbags for a certain distance.

8.  The Great Bull Run

Yes, it’s the running of the bulls!  Eighteen bulls are let loose through a quarter-mile course.  Don’t want to run from 1,500-pound bulls?  You can go as a spectator or participate in the Tomato Royale tomato food fight after the race.

9.  Tough Mudder

The Tough Mudder goal is to provide a challenging race but with teamwork and camaraderie before course time.  Participants are encouraged to help out their fellow mudders complete this 10-12 mile course with 30+ obstacles.

10.  Spartan Race

You may want to wear the crimson red of a Spartan while running this course.  This race comes in 3 types: Sprint (3+ miles, 15+ obstacles), Super (8+ miles, 20+ obstacles), and Beast (12+ miles, 25+ obstacles).  Each of these races awards you with a piece of the Trifecta, a medal that is one-third of a larger medal.  Finish all 3 race types within one calendar year to complete the Spartan Trifecta medal.
