I really appreciate the Stack Exchange community.

At work I am a full stack developer, but at home I do enjoy gaming when I have some free time. I am currently a fan of Destiny, Diablo III (M6 DH), Titanfall, and Forza 5.

Gaming is a lot of fun, my favorite aspect of it is the way it allows me to overly analyze something which is not going to stress me out. I feel that stress is important to avoid and so gaming provides an outlet in that regard.

I am highly active on Stack Overflow, so if anything here is incorrect or needs an update let me know in a comment and I will be happy to make an edit.

comment Destiny Engram Chance
Engrams are less common than simply getting gear. They become more common at higher levels because they are earned as rewards. As for the drop rate, items are still more common even at higher level.

comment Lord Saladin's Iron Banner shop - random perks?
I absolutely love the Iron Banner for this reason. I have a perfectly rolled void sniper rifle from them (there are no void exotic snipers so this was the only way to get a high quality one) - it can also be a pain to obtain even a normal void sniper. In addition, I managed to roll a few of the rocket launchers from them as well. Overall, rerolling Iron Banner weapons is the bees knees, and it is the reason why you should save all of your Motes of Light, because it takes 1 Mote of Light per re-roll.

comment The point of upgrading exotics through xur?
@Chris - Okay, I can see the point there. I edited the sentence to include rerolling armor for stat gain.

@turbo - Perhaps if you stack intellect. I find headshots help in PvP ;)

comment The point of upgrading exotics through xur?
@turbo - Perhaps, but that seems excessive :) I have found that the only real perks that matter is your level and the specific gear listed benefits.

comment Does No Land Beyond produce sniper scope glint in PvP?
It does, and in my opinion the rate of fire is not viable in pvp.

comment Does health and dmg scale per area?
If your damage is scaled down, why would you take the same amount of damage from a level 4 mob as a level 4 guardian who has no benefits of damage scaling?

comment Any reward for repeating the Nightfall strike?
I have done it twice in a week, there is no benefit the second time. This is what alts are for :)

comment Is it more profitable to let the new goblin types live longer?
I suggested an edit to the title. I do not believe this is a duplicate to the other question as it raises a new and basically unique angle. I am also interested in the answer :)

comment What are the XP rewards for story missions in Destiny
@turbo - So your issue was with "at their hardest available setting"? I noted that missions only give the reward once already. Are you certain that enemies yield the same experience regardless of their level? That would indicate that every enemy has a fixed xp gained, do you know what it is or have some citation for that?
