Somebody once asked why I use set roll weapons when I play Destiny…
Destiny is heavy on random number generation (RNG). In a game full of RNG, I want to avoid relying on it to the greatest extent possible.
First and foremost, I detest farming: I find it boring.
Secondly, Bungie has the habit of committing sweeping changes to the game-world in its weapon balance updates. Consider:
Armor Piercing Rounds
Shoot to Loot
Shot Package shotguns
Braced Frame Clever Dragon
… and many more!
Finally, I want viewers of my stream to know that they can achieve my level of performance.
There may come a time where I will be forced to lean on the various god-roll weapons that I keep stashed away in my vault to remain competitive. However, I will not deviate from my policy as long as possible.
Just because I limit myself to vendor rolls and set drops doesn’t mean that you have to. At the end of the day, you play the game how you want to – don’t let me force your hand.
Good luck out there, guardians.
