Global Chat: Destiny 2’s horrible, no-good, very bad transmog


Hey kids, Destiny 2 is finally getting a cosmetic system! And it looks to be as user-friendly and appealing as having your mother dress you for snow play! You know, if your mom was trying to charge you for it and limiting how much warm weather gear you could wear. I don’t know, this metaphor got away from me.

So take it from Tales of the Aggronaut’s Belghast, who asked, “So why did they put the stupid limitations on the system? The short answer is they want to milk silver out of us for a system we have been waiting on years to be implemented.”

He’s not pleased. And he’s not alone. Read on for more MMO essays, including those on WAR’s Tome of Knowledge, Black Desert tips, and Elder Scrolls Online housing!


MMO Juggler: Elder Scrolls Online’s housing

“So housing in ESO serves an additional purpose – free travel – and that is huge. Say I just finished a delve and don’t want to battle my way out and then ride to a wayshrine… just pop up the house menu and recall.”

Bravetank: Rediscovering Guild Wars 2

“Tight now what I’m focused on and enjoying is exploring the world and opening up different areas on the map. There is something about the way GW2 does this that really works for me. As soon as I discover a waypoint I’m off looking for the next one.”

Inventory Full: Put it in the books

“There may very well have been others before that but even if the Tome wasn’t the first I don’t think there’s much doubt it was the most extensive. Had WAR gone on to be the WoW Killer so many hoped and believed it would be, we’d probably see vast encyclopedias dragging load times down to a crawl in every MMORPG.”


The Friendly Necromancer: Something fishy in Wizard101

“I’m loving this game more for fishing than anything else right now. In fact, it’s kind of making me want to catch all the fish and make one of my castles all about fish keeping.”

The Ancient Gaming Noob: Is LOTRO effectively in maintenance mode?

“Almost five months down the road the, now that the afterglow of the announcements has passed, some of us are now getting a little impatient to see what changes, if any, the coming of the new Swedish overlords actually bring.  As with other such transactions, you only get so much goodwill time before the old problems become your problems.”

Aywren Sojourner: Black Desert Online tips for training horses

“To level skills, you basically just have to use them over and over until they get to 100%. So, to level Sprint, for example, you must have a saddle equipped (and it must not be broken), and you press W when riding to Sprint.”

Every day there are tons of terrific, insightful, and unusual articles posted across the MMO gaming blogosphere — and every day, Justin reads as many as he can. Global Chat is a sampling of noteworthy essays, rants, and guides from the past few weeks of MMO discourse.
