Enhancement Cores

Im a veteran Destiny player & I absolutely love these games. I've bought every DLC to this day, but as soon as enhancement cores became a requirement to infuse gear I slowly stopped playing. Many people in the community agree that having these enhancement cores as a required part of the infusion process does not help the player achieve an "impactful sense of progression" but instead makes playing the game & getting more powerful feel like a chore. I don't want to sit around & grind to get more powerful gear and then go grind to infuse my powerful gear into something that I actually want to wear. Making us use enhancement cores removes our ability to wear the armor/weapons we actually want to use until we grind for more cores. Stop making us use these for infusion. Enhancement cores should be an end game item that gives our armor/weapons their special perks, not something we have to use every time we make our items stronger. It's not fun in it's current state & it ruins the game entirely.

  • This was already addressed. Bungie added cores as rewards and increased drop rates from breaking down gear. Scrapper bounties, finest matterweave and you can buy them with shards. Part of the game is resource management.

    • I have plenty of cores. They drop from bounties. Dismantling items. You can trade shards for them. This is not an issue.

          And here I am, confused. Do people who lack cores just master-work any old item? Level something up then find something else? I don't get it. Sitting on a fat stack of 563. So unless your infusing up or master-working something every other day... edit: OP hasn't played in Months and playtime was very spotty before hand. Even devoting at least two hours per week to do Spider bounties and a few powerful gear activities on just two characters would net you an absolute guarantee of 12 cores per week. And during that time it's very likely scrapper bounties, finest matterweave and cores will pop out of legendaries that just get sharded, which means you should easily walk away with around 20 per week. Be smart when infusing, try out different armor variants until you either have the appropriate materials or simply chew the cud and deal with a few perks you don't want. If you no longer play a game and have nothing more to contribute, don't even bother attempting to tear it down when your presence has gone unnoticed otherwise.

          • I haven't played in months because of enhancement cores. The recent removal of gun from the game solidified my contempt for bungie and the game.

              • Enhancement cores should be removed from the game it was & is still a stupid idea specially when the infusing system that was introduced at launch work better than this garbage

                  • Bump and +1. Enhancement Cores sealed the decision for me to never give Bungie another dime. The latest actions by Bungie only further cement the fact that they give zero effs about their playerbase. Tired of being ignored by the devs and brushed aside by the "community managers" (who are, once again, very noticeably radio silent).

                  • Enhancement Cores are just a symptom of poor game design utilised to perpetuate the hamster wheel. Morons should have removed them, instead they pulled more BS with nerfs. Tired of wasting my breath.

                        how about , every week you receive a package from Bungie in your postmaster that contains like 30-40 cores ?! wait , how about this , to make sure you don't even bother going to the postmaster and open the package , instead , they get stored in your inventory directly , better right ?! Play the -blam!-ing game you -blam!-ing lazy whiners kids , Hawthorne gives you 7 cores in each character just for completing her milestone , that's 21/week already , without counting the spider bounties , dismantling , ranking up with the gunsmith, and doing the easy scrapper bounties that you get bunch of daily . I took a long ass break from this game for over a year because it was so easy to get loot (giveaways) , and when I decided to play it again in December I found out that game was made even easier , and yet ppl still complaining about not farming stuff ?!

                        • I've watched alot of players in my clan stop playing as well. Unless you devote alot of time to this game having enough is difficult. It's just lazy when people tell you to grind this or that to get them. By this point I'm pretty sure everyone is burnt out on doing the same strikes and other activities over and over again. I want to play games to have fun. If I want to spend time doing something I dont enjoy I'd rather just just go to work. Unfortunately Bungie is insistent on us playing the game the way they want us to play. This wonderful season of nerfs is a prime indicator that they don't really care if we have fun or not. Nerfing the exotics that where fun and not bringing up the 40 or so useless exotics is just plan lazy.

                          • [quote]Im a veteran Destiny player & I absolutely love these games. I've bought every DLC to this day.[/quote] Me too. I dont mind the cores. I got plenty of cores, 300 now since i've been 700 for weeks. I didnt do the cheese with pinnacle weapons. I have over 100 masterworked legendary gear. I dont spend them wastefully. I dont masterwork every gun. I dont infuse all of my gear to 700, i just wear what i get. Sometimes i wait for the same item to drop at 700 so it doesnt cost any cores to infuse, only glimmer. I'll get 700 exotics i dont want and can use them to infuse for glimmer too.

                          • Gander, do the power surge bounties by the drifter. They will take you to 640 power in 2 hours or less

                            • It's fine the way it is. Iv haven't played for a while. I want to say until last reset is when I started again and manage to jump from 659 to almost 680. I had no core when I came back but yet managed to get where I am. Without putting in much time. Lately iv only been able to put in 1 to 2 hours each night(maybe a little more). Still wearing the same load out. Focusing more on power level first before master working. Both power and master working is end game but max power lv will make a difference in 690 content. Be wise how you use those core. I dont use them if I'm only getting +2.

                            • Every time someone makes an enhancement core post Bungie puts another exotic on the nerf list.
