Currently grinding for my last braytech weapon and out of 20 consecutive days of grinding for the Niflheim Frost scour riffle by redeeming Braytech schematics from Sleeper Nodes I am yet to receive this weapon Resonate Stems are incredibly tedious to farm as 4 are required ,Upon crafting a key to unlock a sleeper node you must go searching for the node THEN when you use your key you have a small chance that it’ll drop a Braytech Schematic ,if you don’t get the weapon from the schematic ,too bad ,you can try again [b]tomorrow[/b] as you cannot receive any more schematics today From my grinding I’ve found that redeeming a node I haven’t before will grant me a schematic ,but as I grind closer to all 40 the rarity of these schematics have become increasingly more rare Lost Sectors ,patrols and public events grant 1 stem ,whereas a heroic event grants 2 So let’s break it down 4 Lost Sector runs = Average of 5-6 minutes Finding the Node = 5 more minutes That’s about 10 minutes for a minuscule chance at getting a schematic that doesn’t even guarantee you a weapon you haven’t received On paper this doesn’t seem too tedious but when you actually sit down to grind these weapons you’ll want to gouge your eyes out So Bungie for the love of God please do something about this grind ,here are some fixes you could consider (not that all should be implemented but some at least) 1-Increase the chances of the schematics 2- Remove the 1 Schematic per day per account lockout 3-Increase the drops of Stems from 1 to 2 in Patrols ,Public events and Lost Sectors ,and 3 for Heroic Public events 4- Fated Engram approach : Duplicate weapons don’t drop until you’ve received all the weapons ,or at least have the odds raise per drop 5-Add the Weapons to normal rank up packages or Escalation Protocol rewards Why should they change this grind ? -This does not provide any powerful gear -The weapons are all static rolled Year 1 gear -Titles should not be based on RNG -The grind is excruciatingly bland and boring -Grinding Lost sectors is not a fun way to play a game ,which you stated when you changed faction rallies Edit : We in the hundred upvotes my friends ,hopefully some light will be shed upon this issue or at least acknowledged by Dmg and passed on
Thank you for your continued feedback on this subject. The team made some adjustments to other rewards that are required for the Wayfarer seal. I'll check and see where this is currently sitting in the Quality of Life backlog that we have running, and get you all some information when I can. I admit, I was lucky enough to get the weapons required, but I fully understand how frustrating it can be waiting for that final weapon to drop.
