It's needed for some Forsaken-specific content, but you can buy Shadowkeep without having Forsaken.
Yeah, sorry, I think I meant more : is it worth it now with shadowkeep out? Like, do I miss something vital? Like drops or skills?

Ah, that I'm not really qualified to answer, I haven't been playing/keeping very up to date on things the past year or so.

I second that question too. This system is so confusing o_O
One thing I will add - Forsaken has a subclass stuff for each class that is only available if you own forsaken. I know that can be a dealbreaker from a completionist perspective, but I can't really speak as to whether the Forsaken subclass abilities are particularly strong/worthwhile or meta.

Got to 900 power with my space wizard. Having a pretty good time even though I don’t have Shadowkeep! I’m just going through all the stuff I missed in Forsaken, Warmind and the (year 2) annual pass. There’s a lot of content there. Forsaken for €25 is probably the more bang for your buck purchase for new players. Would be happy to group for some activities, if anyone would like the company :D

17 hrs played in one day please send help lol
I played a few hours last night and am starting to actually "get into" it, which I was never really feeling at any point post-forsaken. Slowly progressing through multiple old exotic and DLC quests while doing moon stuff. Menagerie queue still seems borked though, I want bad juju :mad:

Also I noticed that the new Nightfall situation has multiple difficulties, and the first two have matchmaking? That's pretty convenient.

Finally bought everything. I've played Destiny 2 when it launched and after finishing the main quest abandoned it, so everything is new to me.
I've noticed now that I don't like the look on my old character and made another one, question: what do I have to redo on the new character? I did the brief introduction and now can already do the DLCs , but I've noticed that the "achievements" are reset?

Sorry, I have a deep hatred of the base campaign.

Is there any reason for me to play if I dont buy Shadowkeep? I have finished the campaign from launch but quit after Curse of Osiris. I just want to play for a bit to see if I feel like buying Shadowkeep. I have no friends so I play solo / matchmaking. I also dont have Forsaken.

Damn, I've never played 17 hours straight in my entire life. Most I did was the first season of Walking Dead (12 hours), with bathroom and supper breaks.

Got any overclocks running? The game is super sensitive IIRC.

Im power level 900, legacy quest? worth it?
Do you mean doing the old campaign? I think you still get "powerful' gear from that (i.e. gear that will be incrementally higher than your current). If you haven't played it yet, it's entertaining for sure. Though the only story line I personally enjoyed was Forsaken. But I get the feeling you're referring to an actual quest that I can't remember :poutblob:

no OCs going. i updated my video drivers and that seems to have helped a little but i still cant complete a strike and get back to orbit without a complete freeze. this is.....frustrating

If you haven't done them yet, it can be fun for sure. Like I said, I'm not entirely sure but I think you'll at least get some leveled gear out of it. One of the best ways to level after 900 that I found, if that's what you're after anyway, is to go into PVP and do Survival. That nets you both Glory and Valor. As you move up the rankings, you'll get higher level gear very quickly and it also earns you a lot of exp.

Frustrating indeed. Might want to post in Bungie's support forum and see if that can get you anywhere.

There's also this page here that might help:

I was playing the osiris campaign but I'm not really into it and want to play something with the other players, what are my options? level 756 I think, I only did the base campaign when the game got out

You could buddy up with someone and do the Osiris campaign or Warmind together. Other than that, there are strikes/nightfalls, public events, pvp, gambit, and activities like escalation protocol that you can do with other players.
