Still not managed to get to grab this yet but got a mate at work who’s proper heavy into it. Cleared all content and maxed like 3/4 chars already or some shit. But from what he’s said he’s finding himself play more Destiny 1 than anything else atm as there’s just not enough content to keep people interested. The ‘hardcore’ raids give the same loot as the normal raids, but you get like emblems and achievements.
He’s enjoying it but essentially I think it’s the old case that it’s kind of like WoW vs’ other MMO’s even though it’s the same IP. Lengthy and worked content vs’ new and limited. So he’s finding things seem to be starting to die from the main playerbase, people only jumping on for the events on the weekends and such.
I think they’re mostly gripes that people who’ve played a shit ton of the first would encounter in all honesty though, so maybe it’s still worth a shout.
