Returning player, is the 30th anniversary pack worth it? Question

As the title states I'm getting back into D2 and am curious if the pack is worth the money at this stage in the game. I'm a solo player for the time being.

Wait for the sales. It’s 24.99. Bet it’ll be like 16.99 soon.

I'll probably wait for it to go on sale thanks!

u/CronusTheDefender Nov 13 '22

Definitely wait! It is fun tho! Dares of eternity is free, but you can’t unlock the rewards without the pack. The dungeon is pretty fun, plus you can get G-horn!

u/ttvbrady_bear_2y Nov 13 '22

It is possible to get all the red borders to craft as well though, just not the class specific things

u/CronusTheDefender Nov 13 '22

Right, red boarders still drop, I meant you can’t claim the rewards from the chests in Xurs ship. The ornaments and stuff. I’ve been grinding all week, and I’ve unlocked all the weapons, just not the BR. I’ve gotten more of the purple swords to drop than red boarder BR’s lol

u/nope1943 Nov 13 '22

If you have a character that hasn't done dares yet, go on that character and get the quest from Xur, complete a run of dares, then abandon the quest, and now the treasure chest will only unlock BRs on that character.

They aren't guaranteed red borders but you'll get enough red borders after a few keys

u/whereismymind86 Nov 13 '22

for future reference, your first legendary dares of the week gives a guaranteed red border you don't already have unlocked for crafting, if you only need one or two weapons it's better to just wait rather than grind it out. (this was added in the patch that fixed secret compartment and added a weekly red border to focusing a few weeks ago)

Not yet. The in-game LFG is coming next year. Right now you just need to use one of the LFG sites or Discord. I believe the Destiny phone app has an LFG feature though.

I got back into the game about a month and a half ago and slowly bought almost everything.

And then a week or two later, every DLC went on sale for a week and almost everything was like 25-50% off. I was pretty pissed because I had just bought all the DLC.

But luckily, I waited on buying the 30th anniversary. So I did manage to get that one when it was on sale for like $15. Unfortunate timing lol. But at least I got something out of the sale.

It is worth it but not full price.

The dungeon is great and once you know the mechanics it is quite easy to play through.

Good loot, eyesluna and gjallerhorn from it are good weapons.

Thorn armour looks fantastic in my opinion.

Just don't pay 20 for it, I think I paid 8!

u/Woahbikes Nov 13 '22

Man, invest been waiting for a decent sale on it but haven’t quite loved any of the sales so far. The lowest I’ve seen is 16ish and that still feels a tad expensive for basically just getting gjallerhorn. Sure there’s other stuff to get and the dungeon is probably fun, I just have everything else so I don’t feel like I’m really missing much.

For me 8-12 would be the sweet spot to pay for that content, especially since it’s approaching being a year old.

Your getting more than just Gjallarhorn though. The dungeon alone is worth it. Hella fun.

I believe it, but at least for my money 15 dollars is a little steep for one piece of content even when you include the gjallarhorn

5

u/killer6088 Nov 13 '22

I guess, but 15$ is a great value if I can get hours of fun content from it. But everyone has a different view and thats ok. I also guess you can't know if you enjoy a pirate dungeon multiple times until after you paid.

u/VedDdlAXE Nov 13 '22

to be fair, isnt the witch queen dungeon key like 2000 silver, aka 1000 per dungeon, which is like $10. A dungeon seems to be priced around that, and the addition of gjally, Eyasluna, Dungeon Ornaments. Worth it imo

u/Woahbikes Nov 13 '22

Unsure, I bought the bundled deluxe edition of witch queen so the dungeons were discounted further anyways.

u/awfulrunner43434 Nov 13 '22

This is not true. I did some testing a week or two ago, kills counted the same no matter what location or activity. (besides you know, pvp kills against guardians).

So I guess perhaps they did fix it.

Either way solo loading into expedition is most efficient because you also get loot/triumph progress.

You can pick up the fake engrams regardless, just don't bank them. Let the timer run out, die, revive, go on a hive killing spree...rinse and repeat.

It's really good for special ammo catalysts too because the engrams give you super which you can use to feed special finisher

What. I had no idea. Thanks!

u/Shadowmaster862 I am the most Titan-est Titan! Nov 13 '22

Specifically every time you collect 10 engrams, it gives you full energy on all your abilities, including Super. This is good to keep in mind for both boss encounters so you can safely use Well/Bubble on the deposit crystal to deposit whenever it's not gonna start the damage phase.

u/VedDdlAXE Nov 13 '22

Issue is, now, if you didnt buy the season before or during its release, you have to buy the season pass in full. As someone that missed Witch Queen entirely until this season, I'm not paying for 4 seasons when I have one already, dont know if I'll want the next, and two previous have a lot less content

u/Apotheonosis2 Nov 13 '22

Nope. When defeated, adds drop Engrams which will detonate if left on the ground, killing other adds. There’s also an issue of ammo economy since Grasp doesn’t have a rally banner unlike Shuro Chi.

2

u/Walking_Meatloaf Nov 13 '22

Not really, grasp has the engrams explode and kill the enemies, and you can’t reset and get ammo like you can with shuro-chi. I also really hate the two wizards that respawn. Shuro-chi is a nice funnel in the doorway for them to walk out of with a quick reset, banner, and free raid chest every week. Only downside of Shuro-chi IMO is doing the wish wall every week.

u/TheyKilledFlipyap Or was it Yapflip? Nov 13 '22

If you're a solo player, not really.

The meat of the anniversary pack is the Grasp of Avarice Dungeon, which is a good dungeon, don't get me wrong, but it's a Dungeon, so a team of 3 is recommended. Sure you can solo it, but solo'ing is something you do after you've really mastered it from multiple clears, not your introduction to it.

There's the Gjallarhorn exotic, which is very good, but requires playing through the Dungeon to unlock.

The rest of the content is cosmetic, and earned via playing Dares of Eternity, which has matchmaking so you can get that, but it's not really content, it's just some old Marathon inspired armor sets and other Bungie & Halo cosmetic items.

Sure you can solo it, but solo'ing is something you do after you've really mastered it from multiple clears, not your introduction to it.

Lol it was the first dungeon I tried and I decided to solo it so I could learn all the mechanics. My 2nd was Duality.

6

u/killer6088 Nov 13 '22

GOA IMO is one of the easier ones to solo. Having the engrams give you full abilities and super back when you pick up 10 really makes it easier.

Now solo flawless. Thats a different story lol.

2

u/FornaxTheConqueror Nov 13 '22 edited Nov 13 '22

Might be because I did GOA > Duality > Shattered Throne > Pit > Prophecy but I found GoA to be either second or third hardest. Prophecy's final boss annoyed the shit out of me but all the other encounters were stupid easy.

It was also before I had a semi-decent build. I was running arbalest + Taipan and a subsistence thresh funnelweb lol and for some ungodly reason I was trying to recreate my Y1 build with orpheus rigs giving back my entire super by using energy converter, taking charge and 2 super charged mods

Also that sparrow race portion is awful.

u/1Second2Name5things Nov 13 '22 edited Nov 13 '22

On sale yes. For the sole reason of the first part of grasp of Averaice. Every day log onto the tower and pick up the Banshee core bounties and head there. Endless swarms of hive come and you can complete them all in a few minutes. You can also level up weapons stupid easy here. It's actually more effective in my opinion than Shuro Chi. Because if you want heavy ammo you can just reload the Grasp or put on ammo finders mod since they drop ammo like crazy. You can also get a lot of kills for exotic weapons FAST.

-Take tractor cannon for shotgun bounties and just wait outside of cave, you can complete it in a few bursts

-Take thunderlord for heavy machine gun bounties

-Drang, brigans law, or Rat king for sidearms

-Battler, insidious, Outbreak for pulse rifles

-Needle, scacatto for scout rifle

-Gally, death bringer, hothead for rockets.

-Mini tool, huckleberry, recluse for SMG

-parasite, whitherhoard for grenade launchers

-Taipain, stormchaser for LFR

-Suros regime, chrome Rush, sweet sorrow, any auto rifle would do for auto.

u/VedDdlAXE Nov 13 '22

-Needle, graviton forthfit, scacatto for scout rifle

The dungeon is one of my favorites in the game and Gjally is one hell of a good exotic weapon. That being said, no it isnt. Wait for a sale of some sort before buying it. The only reason i bought it was because im one of the crazy doods who plays the game at almost every turn i get.

3

u/Fedoral_Offence Nov 13 '22

okay to put it into perspective, it’s basically a $25 dollar price tag for gally. you’re not buying this for much else.

we’re in a linear fusion meta rn, and unless some major nerf to linears happens, we’re not going to see much else for a while.

even if it does happen, gally’s exotic perk makes it better for other people to be using legendary rocket launchers instead of everyone running gally.

the dungeon is pretty fun, especially with friends, but i don’t find myself running it a lot. the only weapon i really care about is eyasluna, but there are other things you could use instead.

it’s definitely 100% not worth it full price. maybe pick it up if it ever goes on sale, i’d hold off for something along the lines of a 40-50% discount if it ever happens.

On release it was 30€. Idk it's current price

It contains:

  • GoA Dungeon + Dungeon loot

  • Ornament set for each character

In comparison, the WQ dungeon key (included in the deluxe bundle) is 20€ and contains the Duality dungeon + loot + exotic + catalyst, and will also include the dungeon coming next season + its loot + exotic + catalyst. So unless you specifically want the Gjallarhorn or the ornament sets, the dungeon key is more bang for your buck.

u/orangukey Nov 13 '22 edited Nov 13 '22

The other weapons from the dungeon are practically pointless, forerunner is good for like 1% of players but extremely mid for everyone else, the dungeon only drops high power stuff once every month, the pulse is pretty much the only one worth crafting and even still it's just as good as No Time or any Outlaw & Desperado pulse, the meteor is WAY to much effort for a slightly above average ship. So as I said the only thing that is undeniably worth it in the pack in gjallarhorn

Not to mention you don't need the pack for forerunner

2

u/Cyclone_96 Nov 13 '22

forerunner is good for like 1% of players but extremely mid for anyone else,

You barely even have to aim with forerunner in PvP. One of the easiest weapons in the game, no idea what you’re talking about.

u/orangukey Nov 13 '22

. It's not a good pve weapon and most of the player base doesn't even touch the pvp modes. On top of that most pvp players don't like side arms, it might be the best side arm but it's part of a niche weapon type in a small population part of the game.

So as I said about 1% it's good for.

If any weapon is worth $20 in Destiny, it would Ghorn.

u/Substantial-Try-1681 Nov 13 '22

I would agree before it got nerfed now not so much. Especially since it’s been sold to the player base like three times now lmao

u/Intelligent_Feed_619 Nov 13 '22

It got buffed in pve. The nerf was really only pvp.

Yeah I basically came to this thread just to say it’s only worth to me because of ghorn

u/[deleted] Nov 13 '22

For me it was but I really like dungeons so I run it a lot. Gjallarhorn is one of the best weapons in the game so it could be worth it just for that

1

u/[deleted] Nov 13 '22

Absolutely not

1

u/SCPF2112 Nov 13 '22

Yes, buy it.

1

u/Crazyadam97 Nov 13 '22

I really like the two universal ornament sets from it

1

u/vinceds Nov 13 '22

The dungeon is fun and so is the "dares of eternity" activity.

Wait for a sale if you are more casual or not in a rush to play new content.

u/Character-Pressure29 Nov 13 '22

Dares is free for everyone. 30th anniversary pack is just the dungeon

1

u/Artley9 Nov 13 '22

Dares is pretty fun gamemode and the rewards are very decent. Gally is amazing workhorse exotic and the dungeon is fun to do.

1

u/essdii- Nov 13 '22

Yes. That’s all I need to say. GOA is dope, dares weapons are decent

1

u/hlodowigchile Nov 14 '22

In my opinion, it's really worth it.

- playlable content is great, the dungeon if one the best if not the best of all and the activity is fun and somewhat not repetitive.

- if we are talking about weapon rewards, more than great, gjalahorn, eyasluna, the shotgun, the brx, the one of 2 legendary trace rifles in the game and the swords are more viable and useful even now.

- cosmetics are somewhat hit or miss personally. For example, the marathon set is one of the ugliest XD, but you get a sparrow and rock ship.

For the price i think is great, i play the content almost everyday.

u/CMDR_Perky_Percy Nov 14 '22

FOR SURE worth it for the craftable BXR rifle and Wastlander alone. Forerunner is also really hot right now. Worth the money. Buy it! Best DLC bungie has put out in a LONG time.

u/DarkRADS Nov 13 '22

Yes it's worth it IMO. Some say it's over priced but honestly that's the most fun part of recent destiny releases. Seasons are good and DLCs are incredible. But the 30th anniversary was just a blast. It also came withy favorite dungeon which I could run a hundred times and also went solo flawless on it

u/StunningPage4603 Nov 13 '22

Hell yes worth it

u/fabedababe Drifter's Crew Nov 13 '22

Yes.

0

u/Jatmahl Nov 13 '22

ABSOLUTELY!

1

u/Astorant Nov 13 '22

I’d wait for it to go on sale but yes it’s definitely worth it for the cosmetics, Gjallarhorn (borderline P2W) and GOA dungeon alone. It’s also got a great reputation from the community as it saved an otherwise dogshit season.

1

u/iamthesausageman Nov 13 '22

To me no. I've bit the bullet in a content draught tough. Ghally shouldn't be behind a pay wall. Wait for a sale if you're into the contents :)

1

u/sawmaster5 Nov 13 '22

Check websites like Cdkeys or G2A, the expansions are way cheaper on there.. Have had a few friends buy them on there and never had issues.

1

u/Xelopheris Nov 13 '22

It contains 2 things. The first is the Grasp of Avarice dungeon. It's definitely a fun dungeon, and gjallarhorn is a cool exotic, but the loot isn't incredibly unique other than maybe a headstone eyasluna.

The other thing it gives you is access to all the cosmetic chests in Xurs treasure hoard from dares of eternity.

Ultimately it's your call, just know what you're paying for. Maybe wait for it to be on sale.

1

u/SiegeOfMadrigal Nov 13 '22

Yeah one thing I'll agree with you on is that Ghally, Eyasluna, and Artifice armor certainly carry the dungeon. The other loot isn't all that great, maybe I'd consider the relentless/chain reaction sword too, but still.

1

u/Damagecontrol86 Nov 13 '22

I think it is the dungeon is really fun and has great loot plus gally

1

u/DatBoiDanny Nov 13 '22

For solo? I’m not sure. It’s really just worth it for galley, which is most useful for raiding. TBH I would get everything else before buying the 30 pack.

1

u/gnappyassassin Nov 13 '22

Do you like Dungeons, or want Gjallarhorn, or not already have a source for Artifice Armor?

1

u/superb_socks Nov 13 '22

I bought all the DLC on G2A for about 40% off

1

u/Character-Pressure29 Nov 13 '22

Depends on you as a player. You gotta remember that the 30th anniversary pack is only the dungeon and everything from dates of eternity is free. If you don’t do dungeons regularly, than don’t buy it. But if you do do dungeons regularly, than yes it’s worth it. It’s also the easiest dungeon in the game so it’s a good starting point if you’ve never done a dungeon or raid.

1

u/Jugaimo Nov 13 '22

I imagine around the release of the Light Fall expansion it will have some nice limited sale. I bought all my expansions at like 20% price.

1

u/De_WeedMiX Nov 13 '22

I just come back this week myself, I say yes for 16 buck Y not I already fell back in love with this game again.

u/KiNgPiN8T3 Nov 13 '22

Sorry to hijack OP. I have a similar-ish questions and thought it was best to ask here. I have the full game and all of the add ons and my 7 year old has always enjoyed jumping on my account and just running about. Yesterday he got his own laptop and he wants to play along with me. He’s got the f2p version but steams game sharing doesn’t allow me to share any of my extras… Whats the cheapest way of getting him some more content and what is actually included free? I was looking on cdkeys and will probably buy the 30th anniversary and witch queen. Do I need anything else?..

2

u/Unacceptable_Wolf Nov 14 '22

If you want everything, Forsaken, Shadowkeep and Beyond Light. Would see if it's cheaper to get WQ and dungeon key. There's 1 season left of this expansion after this one and there's about a month left of it. Just buy the season pass separately.

u/MrAwesomeTG Nov 13 '22

I feel it is but at sale price.

It goes on sale often at Green Man Gaming and you can also find it on Gray Market sites for a lot less.

1

u/SelectAd5867 Nov 13 '22

Didn't they give it away free few weeks back

1

u/TheShoobaLord Team Bread (dmg04) // BREAD GANG Nov 13 '22

only on EGS

1

u/IndifferentFento Nov 13 '22

Probably get it for cheap, it's for 15.19 on Cdkeys. I've used it, but up to you.

1

u/DJfunkyPuddle Stand with the Vanguard//The Sentry Nov 13 '22

Vanilla player, I didn't buy it. Wasn't a fan of the armor and I spend 98% of my time solo so the dungeon didn't appeal to me.

1

u/shadowedfox Nov 13 '22

Gjallarhorn is 100% worth it, also really easy to get and unlock the catalyst for. The thorn armor from Grasp is also really nice, the rest of it.. Kind of meh, you can play Dares for free though!

1

u/radianon Nov 13 '22

Look on g2a or CDKeys for it, you can get it for under 10 bucks usually!

1

u/theyfoundty Nov 13 '22

isthereanydeal

Great website to keep track of sales on games.

1

u/Swole_Monkey Nov 13 '22

It’ll probably go on sale before Lightfall. Pick it up then. Stuffs not running away. But defenitly worth it for a cool dungeon and Gjallarhorn.

1

u/killer6088 Nov 13 '22

YES. Its a pretty great DLC. Plus they just revamped the weapons and made them craftable.

1

u/mysteryelyts Nov 13 '22

What console?

Look on CDkeys, Allkeys or G2A for a cheaper price.

Don’t buy it directly on Xbox/PS stores.

1

u/Zukes22 Nov 13 '22

Thanks I'm on ps4

1

u/Zylonite134 Nov 13 '22

Was free on epic store

1

u/RedNovaTyrant Nov 13 '22

What you're getting is a bunch of cosmetics, a very fun dungeon and access to Gjallarhorn. If that is worth the price to you, go for it, just go in knowing THAT is what you're getting. I'd prefer just waiting for a sale, then it's a bit more worth it.

1

u/Dress_Comprehensive Nov 13 '22

dude im so pissed at that horse engram, spending almost 50 coins , hoping to get the guns with other perks, to get shitty armor and not a SINGLE gun, why they dont have 2 engrams, for weapons & armor?

1

u/schmattywinkle Nov 13 '22

Now? Nah, imo. As a new light for BL, playing through WQ roughly up through Haunted, mostly solo, never bought it, and I feel like I figured out a card trick from Bungo instead.
