So question for people who know, is there a point in bothering with the Summer Solstice if I can't max the gear out all the way?

Cause I've looked at the final challenges and some of them are simply beyond me.

There is no real point in masterworking it all if that is the final step you mean (I think there is a triumph for masterworking at least one piece). Getting the set to legendary/purple level will earn you a duplicate set with all the 2.0 armour slots when Shadowkeep goes live. That seems to be the big selling point for the grind. But since we can expect all new armour drops post Shadowkeep to come with 2.0 armour slots that would seem to be a short lived advantage.

Getting one set to purple, not masterworked, and then masterworking one piece, will get you what is for many people the last requirement of the new MMXIX title. For many players, the reset crucible Valor step is retroactively already done.

So nothing big.

As for the final steps, You can finish the masterwork after the event, but there's no reason to do that beyond having it masterworked in itself.

Also, Rachel, if you're on PC, we've got a healthy number of people in the NA region in the clan. I've sherpaed a couple of runs of Shattered Throne, and the 200k Nightfall is pretty attainable, so don't be afraid to let us know and log in on the NA server if you do want to masterwork it after all. Or just plain run any of that stuff.

Could I join the clan? Mine has only two others in NA and only one plays at all anymore. I'd like to get more content done.

Thank you, I'm on PS4 though, but thanks anyway!. And yeah it's Shattered Throne and the NIghtfall that scare me the most. :p

Oh my god the grind for the second step!! I have to do this twice too!!

I want No Land Beyond back. Just because.

Trucking along through content I've missed. Think I've finally finished up all the planetary quest lines and attempting the silliness that is getting the reward weapons (Drang, I'm looking at you. I haven't seen an Exotic Engram drop in the two years I've been playing between PS4 and PC).

We're Bnet friends and I see you online all the time. Don't be a stranger if you need a shooter. :D

I've gotten the purple armor on my main, so I have the Shattered Throne objective along with a rare bounty for the Shattered Throne that I need to do this week, which I suppose is convenient, at least...

I'm glad to see they extended the deadline for the time-limited title, since I'd really like to complete the raid objectives with an RPGnet group. So far, every mode I've been taught by the clan has turned out to be way easier than I expected, and I wouldn't be surprised if the trend continues with raids. Cuz I do want to see more of the raids than the free raid chest we grab every week on PC.
