Destiny HoW

I had been taking a bit of a break from Destiny but have jumped back in with the release of the second expansion, the House of Wolves.  My RL friend (32 Titan) and I (28 Warlock) have been two maning most of the new content and really enjoying it.

The Rift is a nice new social area that looks great and I can see myself heading there over the Tower.  The quests have been challenging with the enemies levels ranging between 26-30 but we have been taking our time working through the new environments.  The venture into the Vault of Glass in a quest was fun since I don’t see myself ever attempting the raid.  Some of the bounties I have been having problems taking down the last guy before the time limit runs out and he leaves.  I was doing the Dervis, Wolf Baroness bounty on Earth with 2 other players when the final boss got bored and left when we had him down to 20% health,  grrr.

Overall House of Wolves seems to be a nice little addition to the Destiny universe.  The new quests are challenging but manageable if you are willing to take your time.  I am not a huge PvPer but I hope to try out the  Trials of Osiris this week.  My skill level in first person shooters leaves a lot to be desired so I don’t see me unlocking any of the nice new PvP items anytime soon.
