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.

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.
