      Jester Gemini can stop someone from regening shields, and works thru walls in the middle of the map. If they get away from your guns and grenades and are about to hide for shield regen, dash once and they have to wait more. They rule for chasing people down. double good for getting away as top tree void cuz your invisibility is actually pretty effective when their screen is all blurry. ALSO you can dodge under a roaming super and watch as they wander off to the wrong side of the map.

    One thing to be aware of with the Celestial Nighthawk is that it can destroy a ward of dawn and kill the titan inside the ward with a single shot, and do it from a safe distance; all you have to do is aim at the titan inside the bubble. It also breaks wells and behemoths very nicely, and I use it as a swap during trials if there is a bubble titan on the enemy team. Yes, I run Celestial Nighthawk in Trials; yes, I am a maniac.

    Another thing about dragons shadow: once you put them on, it's very hard to take them off.
    Besides situational stuff like celestial nighthawk for boss DPS I almost never take it off. I'm SO used to the huge handling and mobility buffs And automatically reloading everything for me that it's reached a point if I use any other exotic I become uncomfortable and out of my zone. I took them off once and went into a match and I was dodging after emptying my magazines and I was confused why nothing was reloaded. So yeah be aware you'll Crutch them hard.

      I use dragon shadow on hyper aggressive cqc pvp builds. So usually smg, sidearms, and shotguns. Getting in quicker and getting the dodge back after an engagement to quickly reload my weapons and kill the next player. I like it on bottom tree strider as dodging and then sprinting gives my dodge back quicker and dodging makes it easier close the gap to avoid damage or disengage as it's harder to hit me.

    I think the best way to run Aeons in a 6-player activity might be to have only half of the team running one of each of the mods while the other half on the team are free to specialize their build. For example, there is a lot of potential synergy between Sect of Vigor and the Stag. Ooh, it didn't occur to me until just now, but you could also throw in a warlock with Boots of the Assembler and Lumina. A bottom tree void Hunter with Graviton Forfeit would fit in nicely with that when combined with 6 Rat Kings.

    11:54 this is exactly what I felt with not only Shards but also with the Warlock Skull exotic for Nova bomb. I either got a insultingly small amount for killing one or two, or half for killing like 5. There's no way it's percentage based, or if it is it's got some Bungie RNG jank in there.

    Also Omnioculus’ perk procs anytime you go invisible, and if you use it with Rat King you will get 4 resist stacks. I basically only use them together because I feel pretty confident that I can always survive whatever is going to happen after I get the Rat King kill and I may be able to get another kill without dying. I also suppose it would work great with Travelers Chosen but I find that it works a whole lot better with Rat King

    I’ve been using the knuckle head radar with a box breathing hung jury in the crucible. Needless to say it’s a very strong combo allowing me to kill people across the map in 0.67 seconds while still retaining my radar to answer imminent threats. You should give it a try, it’s literally a turret build that rewards good aim.

    Raiju’s Harness: looks awesome and is just convenient, especially in things like Mayhem when I can cancel and get the super back that much faster. And did I mention it looks awesome?
    Edit: oh yeah, and Oathkeepers. They look really cool, and they make Le Monarque an absolute nuisance to the enemy team.

    Bones and Twilight should definitely come back, and 'Locks could use a Glide exotic.

    Oathkeepers do have an additional bonus to them that wasn't brought up. Bows have a gimmick where they will do additional damage for about half a second after being fully drawn. Oathkeepers essentially keep bows in that state when fully drawn, meaning you can pretty much always do max damage. This is very noticeable with the Le Monarque exotic, as headshots on a perfect draw cause an explosion. Furthermore, you will note that the purple glow that normally dims on it will remain lit. As mentioned though, these are less useful for people who are already good at bows. I think they need some sort of buff.

  • @absenteechild8542
    @absenteechild8542 2 роки тому

    I feel like Ophidia Spathe is a top tree exotic, not a bottom tree. Ideally, you should be landing your weighted knives most of the time, which gives you "infinite" knives. But on top tree, being able to just toss trap knives around is very nice, especially on some trials maps. On convergeance last weekend, for example, we ran into people that defaulted to waterfall every round. Our strategy ended up being rushing to bridge, and having me (our only hunter) spam top tree knives around the waterfall as I could gamblers dodge through the wall. It made for a tricky situation for the enemy team, and eventually they were forced to play mid with us. Even then, I could just knife their hallway to block any retreat they tried to make when we got a pick.
    It's not the best exotic, but for top tree its quite a nice exotic. At the very least its better than Foe Tracer and Celestial Nighthawk

  • @Sam-gl9fj

    i run ophidia with blade barrage quite a bit, the fast recharge between kills from the fan of knives added to the double charge gives it an almost 100% up time as long as you have fodder- amazing in PvE, with red bar enemies, and after the final stage you can comfortably throw ~12 rounds of knives back to back without hitting anything before the buff goes away

      Yeah, he kinda downplayed Oathkeepers though I can see where he's coming from. If you only look at them as advertised in that they let you hold a perfect draw forever, they can seem pointless. The real strength is that they let you hold that draw while peeking, letting you have your bow ready as fast as everyone else using a normal gun. The bow's biggest problem is being caught flatfooted without having it drawn and Oathkeepers lets you avoid that entirely. The constant perfect draw is just a bonus that Le Monarque takes specific advantage of.

    7:16 i believe these are either glitched or have been shadownerfed for this season. I use these on the regular for my pvp builds, and i usually run it with "the messenger" pulse rifle which used to proc the perk as long as i hit all three rounds of the burts, yet in this season it seems to require at least 4 bullets to hit for the perk to proc, which forces me to use vigilance wing or a different weapon in general just to be able to proc the perk. Very sad

  • @puthenveetilnoel
    @puthenveetilnoel 2 роки тому

    Great video. Very comprehensive. Will say I disagree with the oathkeepers rating. With a legendary bow, it's buff is fairly negligible (especially since you can get a roll with absolutely minimized drawtime). But on the exotic bows (monarque especially), oathkeepers let's you ignore the drawtime and always have the bow drawn when you peak. The poison every shot is also absolutely amazing. Don't sleep on the. Totally worth more than just a bow training wheels.
    Also the RDM "extra dodges" was probably in respect to a glitch with timing so you can reset the multidodge. The 6 dodges seems intended.

    • @CastleContent

  • @mando_dablord2646
    @mando_dablord2646 2 роки тому

    I have to say that out of all the exotics I use.
    The placement for Sealed Ahamkaras is the lowest compared to what it can do.
    Reloading is one of the biggest killers in PvP. So with melee that have an area of effect or can bounce, you have a high chance of getting a hit. So it's build dependant with needing to rely on melee to sustain dps. Even in close and long range playstyles.
    Ps: I would definitely take Bones of Aeo over Stomp-33Z any day tbh.

    @Castle Content the “more dodges than intended” line about Dance Machines in the TWAB was referencing a glitch.
    You could do a setup where the Multi-Dodge perk would let you keep the last dodge charge it gives you after the timer ends. This would let you avoid having to wait another 9+ sec. for dodge to be off cooldown, and go back to using the Dance Machines perk on loop. It was unfeasible in PvP but would let you have 100% dodge uptime fairly easily in PvE with no cooldown, so it was patched.

    Bones of eao, young ahamkara's spine, sealed ahamkara's grasps and graviton forfeit were the only hunter exotics I regularly used in d1. Bones of eao hasn't returned and the other exotics have been majorly watered down :'( Young ahamkara's spine gave you an extra tripmine grenade which was AMAZING, sealed ahamkara's grasps gave you an extra melee which was AMAZING and graviton forfeit gave you access to the dodge ability (shadestep) which was also (you guessed it) A M A Z I N G

  • @Lucky_Logan

    I never swap my exotic. I ALWAYS have stompies on. Only time I switch is when I’m running a night fall and I have on 6 shot goldy, I’ll switch to nighthawk. Either Frost-e55, or Stomp-e55 are always on. Because of this video now I understand these a little more so I think I’ll start playing around with the other exotics. I have ALL exotics on all my characters which is 1 of each. Only ones I don’t have are the ones released with Beyond Light. I could probably focus on getting better rolls, I didn’t really know the exotic rolls rolled with different perks, NEVER knew that, I was oblivious to it until when I came back to Destiny in Season of the Chosen I believe or Arrivals, I came back the last 3 weeks of the season before Ruineous Effigy came out. I quit back before they even released curse of Osiris and Warmind, so I missed out on a lot. I’ve been a Destiny player since Day ONE of D1. Then just got tired of the same thing over and over again but I’m happy I came back with all the content, I’m still playing catch up lmao

  • @andriottijunior
    @andriottijunior 2 роки тому

    I kind of disagree about Shards Of Galanor. It's still a great exotic for PvE, with tier 5 intelect and builds focusig well mods, abilities replenish real fast at low cost. Also about Liar's Handshake, seems that it was a little bit nerfed since last year (I'm not sure, but I can feel it coz I use it a lot), but to compensate that it got an incredible boost with the mod that gives you a well for every charged melee together with the arc mod that boosts your melee after collecting a well. You can clear an entire room just dodging (to replenish melee) and hitting. Not everyone likes it, but for those ones that enjoys put weapons to a supporting role in a game entirely weapon driven, it's very satisfying, also because you can stagger most of the bosses with it giving a wide open window for the other team mates to finish them. In Gambit, if you choose a collector role, you can help fill the bank real quick, but that demands practice. Of course both exoctics are not the best for PvE if that is your focus, and I don't play PvE, so these 2 and Mask Of Bakris are my top exotics.

    I have managed to have really good balance with this class. Up close I have plenty of choices to bait people and clean them up with trowing knives or the explosion itself and the doge giving me a knife so I can go for cheeky long range kills. I do wish I was able to have a kill tracker in bombardiers as I reckon I have kill several hundred guardians
