The Last Word #111 ft ChibiKim - Moments of Triumph, Bungie Day, Ruinous Effigy, More Pyramid Ships, Arrivals vs Opulence
This week our guest is ChibiKim an awesome member of Team Resolute and it was great to get to know her gaming history and hear about her passion for Destiny 2. Bungie day was on Tuesday and they kicked off some new things in the game. We have more pyramid ships on all planets, the Exodus quest has begun for the planets we are losing in the fall. We got a new exotic quest that is quite a lot of fun to mess around with. Moments of Triumph are live for the rest of this game year to give us something to go for.    Here's where you can find ChibiKim:  https://twitter.com/chibikimisbest https://www.twitch.tv/chibikim You can find us here.

The Last Word #111 ft NemPlays - Iron Banner - Perks, Matchmaking, Evolution - Warlock Moments
This week we had a great man of this community, NemPlays, who enjoys the Anti-meta and maining a warlock. We talked about his history of Destiny 2 and why he is the Edge Lord. Iron Banner got its first run in Season of Arrivals and we have a couple new weapons, a short quest and some matchmaking to talk about as well. We would like to see Iron Banner evolve in some way in the future as it's felt fairly samey for a while now. You can find us here.

The Last Word #109 - Be Excellent to Each Other - Weapon Reissues - Iron Banner - Tiger Engine Longevity
This week we had to start out addressing the terrible things that some people have been through previously. We all need to be better to each other as humans in general and we also can't continue to watch bad things happen as say nothing. As a society we need to come together to make sure we improve. We also have iron banner coming which brought up the weapon re-issue problem which was the main fear of weapon sunsetting. Finally we discussed the engine we are looking at facing for another 3 years. Good chat overall and I hope you enjoy. You can find us here.

The Last Word #108 ft Jarvenis (Jarv) - GCX & Bungie - New Light vs Hardcore - Builds - Season of Arrivals Expectations
This week were joined by Jarv (Jarvenis) a great guest from the UK who has been crushing it with great YT guides and more, make sure to check out his links below. He has had a cool journey coming into his space in YT now as well. We had to talk about the awesome work that GCX is doing, as of writing this description they are nearly at 5 million raised this year for St. Judes who does amazing things. We got into the discussion of our content, typically for more casual players who aren't so deep in the know and how the New Light Experience needs some help for sure and maybe the fall will improve that. We have been getting more mods which do allow some fun builds as well. Season of Arrivals so far has some cool beats and some exotic quests coming up that seem very fun and possible story lead ins for Beyond Light in the fall. Hope you enjoy this chat.  Here's where you can find Jarvenis: https://twitter.com/Jarvenis https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCPbVYd8r0hfiBhKSyxMsjiw You can find us here.

The Last Word #107 ft uhmaayyze - Beyond Light Reveal, New Element Stasis, Almighty Crash, Season of Arrivals
It was one heck of a week in the world of Destiny. We are joined by an awesome guest, Home of the Vibes uhmaayyze.  We got the reveal for the year 4 expansion, Beyond Light. We have a new planet to visit, Europa. We have a new element in the game stasis. And we also got new of future expansions, The Witch Queen in 2021, and Lightfall in 2022. We totally forgot about the crashing of the Almighty, it was a heck of a week but that was cool to watch on saturday. Trials is broken this weekend, the flawless chest / Lighthouse is having error codes as well. We also got the launch of Season of Arrivals. We have a pyramid ship now on IO with a new public event and Umbral Engrams to help focus your gear chase. It was a great episode and uhmaayyze dropped some bars to wrap it up. Enjoy your week.

The Last Word #106 - June 5th - Black Lives Matter - Almighty Ending - Season 11 Teases - TWAB
This we we first addressed the issues facing this country and the inequalities that all Black people continue to face to this day. It needs to be something we all are move active about how we can make this place a better place to live. Here are some links to learn more if you are looking to find more info.  - http://blacklivesmatter.com - http://showingupforracialjustice.org - http://antiracismcenter.com - http://eji.org - http://colorlines.com  Almighty is teased to be getting bigger in the skybox of the Tower, and after the stream we learned that they are going to be showing us how that plays out 10AM PST Saturday June 6th in the TOWER. So if you see this i'll be streaming live tomorrow on twitch.tv/ebontis to see what happens. Next we have had a tease from Eris and the Drifter headed to Europa for what we have to assume is Season 12 / Year 4.

The Last Word #105 - May 29th - Almighty, Cryptic TWAB, Season 11 & Year 4 Info, Outriders, Backlog
This week we discussed some backlog games that we were working through during these quieter times in Destiny 2. Nioh 2, Inside, FF7 Remake and The Last of Us have been making their way through our devices. Back to Destiny 2 we have the Almighty Enemy ship now visible in the atmosphere, but it isn't moving as fast as I think it should. There are many more factors in space that could affect it but it should be here soon as the season wrap up is coming to and end. We also speculate what is going to be the roapmap for the final week and half of this Season 10 and how we transition into Season 11 & the Year 4 reveal.  We wrapped with a quick discussion of the first Outriders reveal stream.   You can find us here.  The Last Word Twitter: https://twitter.com/LastWordPod   Ebontis Twitter:  https://twitter.com/Ebontis Twitch:  https://www.twitch.tv/ebontis Youtube:  https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC9xJ-_kYMxVGHuL5hG3iJyg   LordCognito Twitter:  https://twitter.com/LordCognito Youtube:  https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCYiUhEbYWiuwRuWXzKZMBxQ   You can support The Last Word Podcast right here --  https://anchor.fm/ebontis/support

The Last Word #104 ft Teasing Teddy - "The Lie" Quest Review, World Loot Pool, Balancing & Tuning, Sunsetting
This week we finally got our hands on the Felwinter's Lie Shotgun, but the journey was a bumpy road. The quest got bugged at the worst moment when the community was just gathering steam to finish it. The bug did get fixed this week and we now have the shotgun. The lore behind the quest and that come with kills with the gun is a cool history behind Rasputin. Its a great read if you have time. We then dive into the World Loot Pool, which seems to be taking the Legendary Engram and making it the universal weapon pool. Armor will still come from the activities, but weapons seem to be available everywhere. Seems odd but we shall see. The weapon balancing for reload perks is to bring the perks down to hopefully make space for new perks, again time will tell.  Sunsetting is a divisive issue and we dive into that as well. Enjoy.

The Last Word #103 - May 15th - The "Lie" Quest, Weapon Sunsetting, Rewards Engram Changes, Year 4
This week we got a new quest called "The Lie" to start wrapping up Season of the Worthy. We needed to do 9 million Seraph Tower Public Events, 3 million on each EDZ, IO & the Moon. I didn't take long for many to point out that our pace wasn't going to allow us to finish in time.  Bungie made the events easier and added a 5x during the week and 10x multiplier to help us speed this process along. Either the math was originally done wrong or they overestimated how many would want to do it, either way it hit the community at a bad time after lots of grinding this season. We also got a juicy twab that opened up some clarity on Weapon Sunsetting, what weapons we would be saying goodbye to and when and how this would work going forward. The community was somewhat divided on this issue but we took a deep dive about what it could all mean. They also clarified how Seasonal gear would be rewarded in Season 11 [redacted] engrams and our ability to focus those engrams towards what we would like to ear and the fact we could earn those throughout the entire game. This seems like a good change over all. We are only a few weeks away from the end of the Season and the start of the next. Curious where we go from here. You can find us here.

The Last Word #102 ft cbgray - May 8th - Eververse, Rewards, Transmog, Aspirational Rewards, Engrams
This week we had cbgray join us on the podcast and got to know his history of Destiny and his journey as a content creator. We got his take on top raids and moments of the franchise as well. We discussed the TWAB for May 8th which had Luke Smith talking about changes coming in Year 4 and Season 12 and beyond. Rewards will be improving. Vanity or Cosmetics will be spread more into game activities and less in Eververse. Aspirational content will have new armor tied to the activity each year. Core activities will be getting new armor and weapons as well in Year 4 and beyond. Many good things are coming next year, and while Season 11 is nearly in motion already, the fall looks very promising.

The Last Word #101 - Guardian Games Info, Hardlight Nerf, Season, Bounties & more
This week we first discussed a bit more about Guardian Games, the data we received in the TWAB with regards to what people thought was some type of cheating to allow Titans to keep winning every day. Hardlight got a bit of a change, but the catalyst keeps it a bit more viable still. They also talked more about changes coming in year 4 of Destiny 2. Seasons will stay as the model but content will stick around longer. Currencies might be seasonal but activities, quests & even some rewards will be available for longer times and wider places. Bounties have received a lot of flack recently for being the main focus of the game and they want to work on changing that. It's not exactly clear how it would happen but only time will tell. Season 13 (think Dec 2020) we might get to see bounty pick up in orbit. Next week they will be discussing Eververse which more and more is getting on everyone's nerves. You can find us here.

The Last Word #100 ft MyNameIsBYF - Destiny 2 Lore, Trials Change, Fixes & Cheating Addressed, Seasonal Model Thoughts
#TheLastWord #MyNameIsByf #Destiny2 This week was special as we got to celebrate out Centennial episode with MyNameIsByf. He is the the Lore Professor of Destiny 2 and we got to go deep into many topics with him, past, present and future for the story of Destiny. Next we get into the status of Trials.  Tokens have made some issues arise, Flawless Loot feels lacking and could use some changes as well. Cheating is an issue as well and went deeper into acknowledging which cheats they are seeing on both PC and console, and some fixes they can't fully explain to not help the cheaters. Finally we discussed the Seasonal model, how it works but isn't perfect and can still improve as we move forward. It was an amazing episode and couldn't have been more honored to have the Lore Professor himself celebrate our 100th. Thank you all!

The Last Word #99 ft Mr_Ar3s - Trials Status, Pyramid Ship, Future Season Speculation, Guardian Games
This week we have a great guest Mr_Ar3s, a great community mod and does a lot of behind the scenes for the Destiny world. After that we got into a discussion about where Trials of Osiris is at right now and the thoughts of a pretty avid player from our guests. That led into the discussion of what could come next season and also in the fall with the Pyramid Ships slowing growing in number each week. Guardian Games launches next week along with other things and for the mid season update so lots to do come Tues. Represent your class well and you could have the gold class item when its all said and done.

The Last Word #98 - Story Implications - Pyramid Ships - Next-Gen Destiny - GrandMaster Nightfalls
This week we got started talking about the IO bunker reveal and the Zavala cut scene we got as a Bunker Clear. Zavala talked with Rasputin a bit more openly than usual and we get a projection and wall lights showing the looming pyramid ships coming close. We speculate the order of events that will be coming to the world of Destiny 2. We also get into what Destiny Next Gen (Destiny 3) could look like with the new SSD capabilities. We do dive into the Grandmaster nightfall reveal later in the episode and our thoughts on how this does seem to be a misstep in a few ways both the timing of the reveal, lack of earlier communication, rewards being lackluster and more.

On the podcast this week we have our guest, Man At Arms, and this episode may have a bit more language in it but its a great listen. We discuss the state of Trials with regards to cheating, rewards, meta weapons like Hard Light, and its Longevity. We also discussed the idea that is Bungie doing a better job with Destiny 2 since the departure from Activision. Seasons and activities right now are light for PvE and Trials isn't hitting. It's an odd time in Destiny for sure. You can find Man_At_Arms in any of the places below: https://twitter.com/Man_at_Arms2112 You can find us here.

The Last Word #96 ft CaptainMcFly - Moon Bunker, Trials Issues?, Hardlight Dominance, Future Subclasses
This week we have CaptainMcFly join us to discuss first his history in shooters, gaming and esports which was quite interesting. Don't underestimate this Dad, he's likely a better shot than you are. We then get into talking about Trials and Hardlight both which are quite prominent on weekends in Destiny right now. The moon bunker was underwhelming and maybe we can get a crazier world in Destiny 3. Twab didn't have much but a small armor change is coming. Enjoy this episode.

The Last Word #95 w/ Guest Brian Moncus Art - Destiny Art, Fourth Horseman, Trials, Season Pass, Iron Banner coming
This week we have an awesome Artist in the Destiny Community, Brian Moncus art of https://www.brianmoncusart.com/.  We first discussed his journey as an artist and how he has grown to be one of the key Destiny Artists in this community. Then we spoke out the journey to The Fourth Horseman new exotic Shotgun. The trailer dropped to spoil any possible surprise, and then we got to the quest. It was rather grindy but its really tough to ask for epic exotic quests ALL the time from Bungie as they are stretched fairly thin. Do you want less quality or more filler content, its a tough call. After that we got into the discussion of where Trials of Osiris is at and thoughts about its various rewards, errors and so forth. Iron Banner comes next week but we don't have much more than a couple new bunkers in the coming weeks. Guess its still on the wait and see mentality unless you are really jumping heavy into Trials.  You can find our Guest, Brian Moncus Art on twitter here: https://twitter.com/mrmoncus You can find us here.

The Last Word #94 - Season of the Worthy Launch, Seraph Tower & Bunker, Grandmaster Ordeals & Trials of Osiris
This week Lord Cognito and I discussed our thoughts and community rumblings regarding the Launch of Season of the Worthy. Is the grind a little to heavy, are the Power Level Requirements too high. Obelisks 2.0 and few weapons do limit the appeal to many players. Trials launched today so we will discuss that next week, but let us know your thoughts about trials and Season of the Worthy for you so far. You can find us here.

This week we were joined by a great guest and pretty hardcore Destiny player, Bobizard13 who is the other half of the great YT couple of LaurenZSide. We discussed the new Season of the Worthy Trailer, the Season 10 story with Rasputin possibly saving us from the Kamikaze Almighty ship, and arming of the Warmind. New PvE activity include new Seraph Tower Public Events, Seraph Bunkers and even Legendary Lost Sectors. Later in the Season we will see changes to Pinnacle Gear drops as we get ready for Grand Master Ordeals as a new Endgame Pursuit. Trials of Osiris Returns for PvP as the pinnacle activity, 3v3 Elim and Lighthouse Visits to match. Lots of Exotic Armor changes are coming along with a new power level of 1000/1010 for Powerful/Pinnacle Respectively. Looks to be another cool season and we are very curious where this season will take us.    You can find our Guest, Bobizard on twitter here: https://twitter.com/Bobizard13 You can find us here.

The Last Word #92 - Trials of Osiris - Directors Cut - Seasons - Retiring Weapons - Sandbox Changes
This week we had so much news drop for what is coming in Destiny 2. Fractaline Donations were finished, we lit the beacon on Mercury and Trials of Osiris teaser trailer dropped about 10pm at night. 3v3 Elim Trials Connection based & card state match making, and through community feedback Artifact Power Level will NOT Affect PVP. Lots of positives here, the main thing needs to be good rewards and hopefully quick action on cheating. Then we get into the Director's Cut for Feb 2020 from Luke Smith. He discussed the changes they want to make for Seasons in Year 4 and the game world. And then of course the big topic is Retiring Weapons in Destiny and how long is the expriation date, and should exotics ever be included. Finally we cover sandbox changes about coming up for Season 10. Melee abilities and a few subclasses are getting reworked. Sorry the audio is off on this on, Cognito wasn't at home so we did the best we could.   You can find us here.

The Last Word #91 - Osiris vs Rasputin, Major Sandbox Changes, Destiny Long Term, Loot Retention Debate
This week was a great episode. First we discussed the new cinematic to tease Season of the Worthy where Osiris squared off with Rasputin on Mars. We aren't sure what is coming next or where the story is going. Next we covered the MAJOR sandbox changes coming with Season 10. Lots of changes coming to Izanagi's, Snipers, Grenade Launchers, Shotguns, Fusion Rifles, The Last Word Hand Cannon and more. Should be an interesting season..... THEN the debate started. We are in our third year of Destiny right now looking at the fourth coming up. I (Ebontis) am thinking some things need retired and Cognito would only see a "Destiny 3" as the time to start fresh.

The Last Word #88 - Corridors of Time Interview, Bastion Reward, Calendar Reveal vs Surprise
The Corridors of Time have been solves, and the whole community was about to contribute in small or large parts. We got a couple of gentlemen who were deep in the mix of getting this thing solved. Art Teams, Data miners, Streamers as figures to join for images. So many cogs in this machine, and Zycore and AetherLore were some pretty important parts to it. We got to hear from them about how they got into helping solve this thing. Some cool facts about the scale of the puzzle, the number of images that were received, and the struggles during the solving that they faced. This was a huge community moment and a great puzzle to solve. We also have the reward to discuss and we had some opinions about that and the fact it was a known an entity on the calendar and ended up being the reward.  I hope you enjoy this one.

This week the community dove head first into the Puzzle in the Corridors of Time which phase 1 alone took 19 hours to complete. After that we now are into part two, which sees everyone in the community submitting their final image of phase 1 to build a giant map of some kind to find the end game of the puzzle. I wonder if the community may be going too far or building puzzle as opposed to solving it. We also get into spoilers about what comes at the end of the maze and also where Destiny may go in the future. It was a fun one this week, I hope you enjoy. You can find us here.

This is the last episode of 2019 and we see where we feel a couple weeks into the season. Saint-14's story has moved on to another part, and by the time I uploaded this audio we got an even juicier development of him in the tower. More on that when we get back next year. We go over some loadouts we have been running, debate about mods and the use of the new Charged with Light ability, and discuss which titan is the best.

This week we have a LOT to discuss regarding all the information about Season of Dawn (Season 9).  We also have an awesome guest @TeasingTeddy who is a pretty hard core triumph score collector and overall nice guy. The reveal trailer was sick with both Osiris returning and Saint-14 a main character for this season. We then get into our thoughts about the stream which is exciting for the lore implications but a bit abrupt at the end. The Sundial 6-person activity looks similar to Menagerie just on Mercury but we didn't get to see much of it. We had a couple quest and armor 2.0 tangents but they needed to be said. We discussed the Season 9 Calendar, Power Level cap changes and had some opinions on Eververse status and Bright Dust economy. Enjoy its a great one.

This week Lord Cognito and I discuss the New(ish) activity Vex Offensive Final Assault. Not much changed this time and we have some ideas how it could have been better. We don't know everything about how the season will end but it could have gone better than it did. Expectations may be part of this on all ends. Then we deep dive into the new subclass changes coming to some Solar trees in Season of Dawn. Another Iron Banner is coming and Bungie's IPads for Kids program raised a ton to help move that forward. Also we have both been distracted by Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order so we had to gush about the greatness that is Star Wars, Tomb Raider, Uncharted, Metroidvania, Dark Souls.

This week Lord Cognito and I break down the launch of Shadowkeep.  3-4 hours of downtime with all they had to convert, change and migrate wasn't too bad.  The content we received was a lot and we broke it down by a like and a dislike of the status of Destiny 2 as we start out Year 3. Everything from the lack of public events on the moon, to the repeatable bounties, campaign length, weapons, finishers and more.  The moon is haunted and the campaign has some juicy spoilers which were discussed in the end.  Around 1:40 watch out but we give you plenty of warning for that.  Armor 2.0 has some intricacies but has potential to be great, although some tweaks may be needed.   Bungie Blog for the 26th, where some of this discussion comes from -- https://www.bungie.net/en/Explore/Detail/News/48273 You can find us here.

This week LordCognito is back from E3 and we talk about his recap of that briefly.  GuardianCon is going to be an awesome trip coming up for both of us, hope to see you out there.  And the Charity streams have been amazing.  Big names raising over 50k multiple times, Bungie getting 400k+ in their block for St Judes.  As i write this DrLupo is in the last block and it is at 3.2 million.  Luke Smith gave us some words of the future about Eververse armor basically turning into Transmog, Bright Dust changes coming as well.

Ebontis discusses: WITH VIEWERS! Season of Opulence, Shadowkeep & E3
A different type of Episode this week since @LordCognito is out at E3.  I brought in a few of my viewers and Destiny friends to chat about Destiny 2.  WDPrescott, Protheon & Bendir all join to discuss their recent likes and thoughts about what we have to expect in Destiny 2: Shadowkeep, Season of Opulence and it's new quest this week, likes and dislikes about many things and hype moments about E3.  A little different format but I hope you all enjoy.

The Last Word #62 - June 6th - Shadowkeep - New Light (Free Destiny 2) - Cross Save - Season of Opulence
This week Lord Cognito and I had a special edition of The Last Word because we had to talk about the official launch of Destiny 2: Shadowkeep, the next expansion coming Sept 17th.   Cross Save for ALL platforms: Xbox, PS, PC is moving to Steam & Google Stadia is launching with it. Shadowkeep we return to the Moon which brings back Eris Morn & more crazy Hive.  Armor 2.0 is a thing, Artifacts and Finishing moves are amazing looking.  So much to look forward too and speculate about.   Destiny 2: New Light is all of Year 1 of Destiny 2 for FREE.  Such a great way to bring people into the game as well. Season of Opulence Launched and the raid race was the tightest ever.  Menagerie and the Chalice of Opulence is very cool as well.

Ebontis discusses: Season of Opulence info and future wants
I take a longer time to discuss my thoughts and speculation on the content coming with Season of Opulence.  We have news about the Menagerie the new 6 player match made activity, the Chalice of Opulence crafting and going after specific gear, pinnacle weapons and more.  After a bit I do get off on a tangent about my wants for the future and changes I would like to see in Destiny. Let me know if you enjoyed this solo episode as well.

The Last Word #60 - Destiny 2 Raid Race Changes for Crown of Sorrow, Comp & old raids.
This week we start with a little public service to the gaming world, my experience in competitive crucible and my journey to Luna's Howl.  The TWAB discusses the changes to the world's first raid race experience for Crown of Sorrow, the new raid for Season of Opulence.  We get off on a tangent about old raids and which ones are good, chat gets things going.  We wrap with a brief discussion about Division 2's new raid and its difficulty, especially on console.

The Last Word #59 - Destiny 2 Sandbox changes.. to say the least. Division 2 launched a raid as well, so how is it?
This week Lord Cognito and myself discuss the TWAB from May 16th that discusses some Sandbox changes for season of opulence.  Whisper for sure is getting a nerf, and a few others weapons and armor are getting some changes.  It makes us wonder what the future content will be like but also what other ways they could go for the changes they are desiring.   Division 2 launched a raid and its actually got some cool mechanics, but Synaldo drops a bomb on us about the loot that may or may not be dropping. Also as of this upload the raid has not been beaten on either console.   Enjoy the fireworks this week!

The Last Word #58 - Destiny 2's New Quest, Next Season Raid info and Division 2 listens
This week we jump into the next Quest that dropped on Tues that rewarded us with a "new" exotic.  A fun weapon and a great quest and final mission.  Another Whisper of the Worm type set up and great pay off.  We also got info on Season of Opulence's new Raid, Crown of Sorrow.  It will be dropping on the same day as the new season, just 6 hours later.  Interesting change in pace for the release to try and level the playing field.  Finally we discuss Division 2's upcoming patch and how the developers changed their direction from community feedback.

The Last Word #57 - Destiny 2, Division 2 Anthem
This week was a shorter podcast because someone (me) had to leave a bit early.  Some more hypothetical talk as to how Destiny 2 will handle what comes next after Season of Opulence.  Borderlands 3 is sitting in Bungie's prime slot and that now might be a factor in what they do next.  Anthem is very much going to be a work in progress for a while.  I've started division 2 but many are still waiting on that raid.

The Last Word #56 - Destiny 2 - The Revelry woes continue, Anthem delays lots of things, Division 2 may be fizzling for some
This week we discuss possible changes to pinnacle weapons as they seem dominant to Bungie.  The Revelry continues to cause issues for Crucible players, and then Invitations of the Nine have been boring and now one is broken.  Anthem delays many things but a few QOL items were added.  Division 2 has some changes with its recent patch and we are still waiting on the release of the raid.

The Last Word #55 - Destiny 2 - The Revelry Ups and Downs, Division 2 and Anthem Delays
This week LordCognito and Ebontis discuss our thoughts on the Revelry, how the Tonic has broken some things.  Another mini rant regarding the future and wants out of Destiny 2 and Destiny 3.  Division 2 delays their raid and Anthem's stream about upcoming content was delayed, and at this point I think they longer things take the better that game will get.  They don't need to worry about releasing content and just make their full game first.

The Last Word #54 - Destiny 2: TWAB, Arc Week, and the future, Anthem Woes and Division 2 Tier 5
This week LordCognito and Ebontis discuss Destiny for a while.  We have a interesting discussion regarding what the future of Destiny 2/3 could and should look like and we don't always agree.  Arc Week is coming with some changes next week.  In other news Anthem had one heck of a journey to get where it is and Division 2 continues forward with Tier 5 coming soon.
