What a load of bullshit. The 690 gear is utterly bugged: My friend and i were questing in the Tangled shore and all of a sudden he recieves the chalice + all the 690 pieces while i only recieve the chalice. (We were both lvl 46) I went on to complete everything forsaken had to offer up to unlocking the dreaming city: Still no 690 gear. I'm now 717 on that character and still no 690 gear (not that it matters but still..) Bungie stated that it is indeed bugged and they're looking into it.
Did you check back at Benedict and Werner? For me, he had boxes where I got the remaining Gear from.
Yes obviously i checked with them like 200 times. Those were the first i checked as i got a bunch of gear from them on my titan the first time i did it.
I just asked to make sure. You would wonder how many people don't do the easiest things before posting about an issue.
Well you're not wrong!
