As a core player of Destiny I feel like we are becoming too limited in our power fantasy. We loot and shoot for better(ish) gear to come up with some kind of builds and when something steps out of line or becomes popular it gets nerfed to the ground. Why cant players play the way they want to? I understand things have to be fair in PVP, but PVE? Come on now. Sure, it cant get crazy... but nothing is too crazy right now. Can bungie truly afford to disappoint their fan base, their customers..... AGAIN?! Man.... these nerfs are disappointing, surely there could be a better way to balance the game... maybe make your bosses harder? Idk... I'm just left wondering if I'll stick with this game any longer. I love destiny, but I love looting, shooting, and feeling powerful and I feel all of this is fading. Rant done, I hope nothing but success for the franchise, but most importantly its fans!
There is no "builds" in D2 because the game isn't built to support builds. You want a power fantasy? Wait for D3, until then a "build" or "power fantasty" is reliant on 1 exotic which is not a "build" you are just getting off to a broken exotic.
