I thought I'd get this in early: Just think when/if Bungie tells us officially that nothing will transfer to the retail release of Destiny, this forum will give birth to a new breed of hell-hound. I can see it now; post after post of self-righteous drivel. Flaming little children throwing toys out of their prams. So before the event I'd just like to say: 1) Don't like it? You shouldn't have played the Beta. 2) You shouldn't have wasted hours of your life grinding gear. 3) *stifles a laugh* Why? Because it's a Beta. A test. A preview.(dare I say) a demo. Stay frosty people and remember; there's a real world outside your condensation clouded windows. Step carefully through your bedroom floor covered in empty cans of energy drinks and soiled underwear. Step outside, take a breath and be cool.
I don't want progress to transfer. I like to grind levels and abilities and with everything frozen at 8 it was hard to get an estimate of how glimmer will be to farm. I managed to get total (rough estimate) around 30k glimmer maybe 40k total. I spent a lot of it upgrading my Cryptarch level because I wanted to see what kind of crazy stuff he would give me. Made it to level 6 (soooo close to 7 but ran out of glimmer). Got a blue cloak and a blue machine gun. Really would have loved to see a blue sniper rifle. Had I gotten a blue sniper I might change my tune on wanting things to carry over. Lol.
