Enough with the 100 EAZ minibosses..

There’s nobody in the EAZ.. And if there are then they just leave half way through the process.. Even my clan have had enough ...or completed it at ungodly hours when some of us are asleep! I don’t mind the rest of it, the Gambit matches, strikes, collect orbs, do challenges, kill Guardians... But the mini boss bit is just so boring to do.. Now if only orange bars counted as well, eh ?.. Anyone else agree ? Edit ..finally get Cabal. Everyone else leaves. I die. Just fantastic! Lol.

  • This grind is nothing more than a mindless slog. Do an absurd amount of played out, non-difficult yet artificially time consuming content so you can unlock gear that will be no better or worse than any other 2.0 armor. The only thing that makes it stick out is the glow that has to be purchased with either real money or in game currency, both being grossly overpriced for their respective currencies. Playing the same old strikes over and over is not good content. Playing the same adventure over and over is not good content. Doing the same 3 public events in rotation over and over is not good content. At Max level you can't even obtain anything worthwhile from any of this content other than the odd chance you find a catalyst or an exotic you didn't have before. I understand that the armor is supposed to be earned over a month, but that won't make this any more bearable in the slightest. In fact, I would imagine completing this slog as fast as possible would be the best course of action so you can spend less time thinking about doing it.

    • My biggest problem is that when I enter into matchmaking I’m nine times out of ten being stuck into a game where the miniboss stage is over and is therefore a complete and utter waste of time for me. I don’t mind having to grind an objective, but when it’s made incredibly difficult to do because of the matchmaking it’s just asinine ridiculous and more than just a little frustrating.

        • Yeap ts officialI'm the only person who doesn't mind spawning into the boss fights. Grab a couple chests open a couple prizes, maybe get a core and materials. Keep dropping out and I'll keep going in.

        • I've just started this step, I'm 3 games in with 16 kills by playing with randoms. My main problem is the bosses (especially the damn Brood queen thing) are just so bullet spongey that it takes me ages to solo it once everyone ditches me since I still need the chests at the end too lol. They should have made each end boss count as 5 points towards the objective, if you kill a Brood queen it should just complete the objective because screw that thing lol and also making team kills count would lessen the burden a bit but eh.

            I just wanna know when Bungle will learn the lesson of creating task that breed cheese, because loading into EAZ boss fight after boss fight because people keep leavin’ has made Solstice NOT fun and I don’t feel like “celebrating”. PS: For once, will you just make minibosses, HVTs or wha’eva TEAM BASED!!!

          • Agreed. It’s sort of a bummer they didn’t actually learn form the grenade kills step of the IB armor quest this season and just repeated the same mistake in a different quest.

                • I think the final boss should count as 5 mini bosses. Would lessen the grind as well as incentivise players to stay through to the end of the activity.

                  • Not hard, EZ casual activity. grab mates or just play some music and just don't even think about it. Everyone here who complains are just casuals who can't get their head straight.

                    • I think that it shouldn't require you to damage them, if the team kills them, they should count. Just like you don't have to open the chest, the team does.

                        • I'm not sure I can bring myself to do this part. I get that some kind of grind is part of the quest but the the love of the game 100 mini boss kills is just stupid.

                          • They should have made this step complete by doing the following Kill 120 Powerful enemies. Kills on the EAZ counts more towards Progress - Double the points

                            • YT is buzzing with the PS4 cheese where you set the systems clock to some date/time that isn't what it actually is. These people are saying, hey PC and Xbox users, it'll probably work for you too. PS4 folks can supposedly go into the event solo and kill all of them. I hate to tell these folks that doing that while you're connected to a Bungie server violates their TOS. Don't get caught up in the crap people!!!

                              • I have 60 mini bosses left, 25 chests, and two more games of Gambit. Man, it's a grind but there's a lot of time and I'm only doing one toon. I only have one toon. Lol. If I was in a clan, I'd be able to fully masterwork my gear. I'm super casual and even I'm getting it done.

                                • Trust me, go on the forums and put in need 2 for EAZ miniboss grind. Then load in. Go in a group of three to the same one. Everyone tap it. The last guy comes in and kills it. You’ll get like 10 a run. If it’s give, do the mini bosses. If it’s the stupid broodhold queen, leave if it’s the ogre stay. I got it done in an hour and a half tops.

                                    • I would suggest just farming the cabal engineer during the boss phase. Kill two of the three big boys then go up by the factor. He spawns about one per min. Probably the fastest way to do this step.
