Today is Destiny 2 reset, and as such, you’ll be asked to choose two likely new upgrades for your Season of Plunder pirate crew, until you reach another time portal.
With the way this time gate works, you’ll likely get 2-3 unlocks per week indefinitely, which means one wrong choice can permanently delay a more valuable upgrade by a week. As such, you really don’t want to make mistakes.
I m truly Books up to order I’ll be upgrading the Pirate Crew over the next weeks, but I want to give a specific warning about one upgrade people picked that looks clearly bad, worse than most.
Modernization: Well, you made a mistake. The shield focus feature isn’t great, but it gives you at least 1570 armor Can Rolling over 60 is a good amount. A bad unlock feature is the shield treasure map, which will instead drop 1350, a low shield at the end of the Expeditions, rendering it useless.
So I apologize for slandering SCUR-V. I still wouldn’t pick it up early, though, given the other options. The original article follows:
Your upgrade Not You want to get it so you have to (I have option #9 on my list), top left, Hire SCUR-V Upgrade Servitor. While the combat bonus’s reload speed can be great, it also unlocks the ability to focus in the loot shield season.
Fabulous, isn’t it? Focusing armor has been a way to get better gear in past seasons, so now we can do it again here, but with a Plunder coin reward, in theory. But no, this armor is too bad.
This isn’t high armor, and it almost exclusively drops below 60, no matter what kind of ghost-focused armor you have. For whatever reason, it’s also dropping at 1350, which means you’ll have to pump it up to make it wearable for current season activities. This is also a coin burner, costing you 25 Epic shards and 5 Energy of Plunder Umbral, which you don’t want to waste on your trash shield.
I went through every promotion in the pirate crew roster and oddly enough I don’t see that anything This feature will make focus even better. This isn’t a post-stage upgrade that will turn these points into a high static shield, nor Engrams that will tend toward sticky stats in any one area. Looks like you can Just Focus on bad armor and low stats this entire season. The only potential source of loot armor with high stats seems to be Master Ketchcrash, where “High stat expedition armor” is listed as a potential bonus.
So, I wouldn’t pick this upgrade until long after the season, and in fact, you’d do it then only to summon SCUR-V for those bonuses, you still shouldn’t actually focus on any of the armor, because that would just be a waste of resources. While the past seasonal focus produced some amazing armor, that’s not the case with Plunder, and you’ll have to farm it from Master Ketchcrash instead, which is…a little more difficult. Bungie probably did this on purpose, given that they’ve seen how easy it is for people to get the incredible armor from the past few seasons out of Focus.
I focus on weapons and the styles of those weapons. see you there.
