    I started Shattered Memory Fragment - Destinypedia, the Destiny Wiki - Destiny, Bungie, Activision, Fallen, Cabal, Hive, and more! about a week ago. I tried to solo it and didn't do so great, but I've gained 5 light levels and two legendary weapons since then so maybe I should try again.

    I just got offered another VMM with the choices:
    Toland's Legacy - Destinypedia, the Destiny Wiki - Destiny, Bungie, Activision, Fallen, Cabal, Hive, and more!
    A Light in the Dark - Destinypedia, the Destiny Wiki - Destiny, Bungie, Activision, Fallen, Cabal, Hive, and more!
    A Dubious Task - Destinypedia, the Destiny Wiki - Destiny, Bungie, Activision, Fallen, Cabal, Hive, and more!

    Two of them supposedly are poor weapons which Bungie has suggested they'll give a balancing pass, and the third requires a 25 K/D spread in PVP which I'm pretty sure I'll never ever get, so I haven't been able to decide which of these impossible tasks to add to my already clogged-up bounty list.


    Anyone done one of these and have any advice? Or on the 360 and happen to have tomorrow off?

    I have Tolands man. When you finish it you get the Bad JuJu, which is the only primary exotic with any kind of elemental damage.

    I have tomorrow off as well!

    Well ... almost. But we can probably get the JuJu before the other one.

    Cool, I'll try to send you an invite when I see you sign on, since I'm not sure if you'll even be able to see me.

    Thanks folks! Here I thought primary weapons with elemental damage were a myth! I actually have the bounty for Bad Juju too, but I'm waiting until the weekly reset to do the strikes and hoping it brings the 1.02 update with it so they're actually worth doing.

    Oh man Hastarin the Weekly nightfall is ROUGH but TOTALLY worth it. There is a VERY high chance of exotics, tons of drops, strange coins, and if you beat it you get the "Radiant light" buff for a week which boosts ALL of your incoming XP, including vanguard rep, crucible and regular. And you look like Ghost Rider because your head stays on fire lol

    What level do you realistically need to be for nightfall?

    I've been reading that damage is proportionate to level difference; every level is like 20-25%, so if Nightfall says 28 and you're 24 you're getting 80-100% more damage and doing 80-100% less.
