God Rolls - Crafting Scrapping, Risen Roadmap, Elden Nerfs
Welcome to another installment of God Rolls where I will probably be taking a little break after this. If all goes well, a week from today I should be a father! Very excited and uh terrified, and this week we are playing the waiting game. Going to be a total sea change for my entire life and I’m looking forward to it. But yeah in the interim, may have to trim back a bit on content, which I’m guessing you can understand. I’ll find a new rhythm and get back to it, and start raid-training my son so he can farm spoils for me while I work.
What I’m Playing: The truth is, I didn’t start Elden Ring because I knew I wouldn’t be able to finish before my son was born. That seems like a game you don’t want to set down for an extended period, so I’ll get to it eventually. Otherwise, just checking in with seasonal Destiny stuff, and I just beat Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands which I can’t talk about yet, but the review will be up in a few days.
What I’m Watching: Severance, Servant, The Dropout, Walking Dead, Our Flag Means Death, Raised by Wolves, The Gilded Age. I think those are all the current ones? I am going to the theater today to see X, the horror movie, and probably the last thing I will see in theaters for a while here.
Onto the recap:

Which ‘Destiny 2’ Activities Level Deepsight Weapons The Fastest - If you’re trying to clear out Deepsight weapons, this is the fastest way to do it.
The ‘Destiny 2’ Vow Of The Disciple Raid God Roll Weapons You Should Be Hunting - What is probably my final god rolls post for weapons this season, and these are the best ones.
Destiny 2’s Season Of The Risen Has A Roadmap Now, Kind Of - We now have some new dates for the rest of Risen coming up.
‘Fortnite’ Season 2 Is A Badly Timed War Theme, But Epic Is Donating All Proceeds To Ukraine - Fortnite had some extremely bad luck planning its season, but to offset that, they’re doing some good work.
‘Gran Turismo 7’ Shows Why Sony Needs Bungie’s Help With Live Services - Gran Turismo was down for 30 hours to push a patch that makes its grind much worse. Not great.
Marvel’s Avengers’ 2.3 Patch Is About New Player Onboarding, 19 Months In - Why yes there is some actual Marvel’s Avengers news. But it’s not great.
‘Elden Ring’ 1.03 Patch Notes Bring Mimic Tear And Hoarfrost Stomp Nerfs, A New NPC - Elden Ring had a huge patch this week that nerfed a lot of common builds.
Why I’m getting really tired of champions at this point:
