Bungie shed some light today on the inclusion of raids in the final game and what we should expect from playing.
I'll place everything in bullet form to keep it clear and concise.

  • For starters, raids can be a party of up to 6 players. Not sure if this 6 player limit will carry over to the story mode in the full game or not.
  • There will be no match making. Bungie stated that they didn't want this to be played with a group of random strangers as communication will be key they said.
  • They stated that each one could last longer hours so you should play when you won't be distracted and have some time.
  • Will likely include puzzles and such that the team will have to work together to accomplish. This sounds like they could include platforming and what not inside these raids.
  • There are no waypoints and nothing will tell you where to go on the minimap.
I'll quote this next one so you guys can speculate with me
  • “Unlike a bunch of the other activities in Destiny, where you begin the activity – like let's say you pick the level-22 Strike playlist – everything in that activity is going to be level 22. It's going to be consistent. If you're level 26, you're going to have some relationship to it. You're going to be more powerful than that activity. In a raid, when the raid begins at level 25, it's not where it ends." This could mean that the level cap is not 20 but something higher, 30 possibly?
  • They said the raids are extremely hard and likely something you won't get through on your first attempt.
  • The bosses, like the strike missions, will be hard but will also have special abilities.
That is the majority of the info Bungie gave out earlier. I'm pretty excited about it as it sounds like something that will be really fun to do! They pretty much sound like bigger and badder strike missions. If I learn any new info I'll update the thread!

I kinda wish they would have implemented a "raid finder" option, but understand with the need for communication. Guess i'll just have to pop in and out of here when my buddy and I are looking to run them.

lol I know that, and remember when WoW didn't have that in place and you had to actually travel to the Raid Area. Hopefully they implement something to allow others to know you're interested in running a Raid though. Either some kind of marking next to your name while in the Tower, or a Bulletin Board in the Tower that you can put your name up for it.

On topic, I can't wait for these. Sounds awesome but I don't see why you can't play with randoms. I think that would make it more interesting

Will raids be playable solo?
Im sure you can try but will be impossible. Its already very hard with max ammount of people. And it's set up so you are penalized for failing and rewarded greatly for completing.

Just sharing some thinking.
Say you finish a raid with your clan of 6.
Bungie has auto mach making before entering the tower to stop over crouding the tower.
If the clan leader chooses to go in to the tower what's going to happen to the rest of the clan?
Either some of the clan will go into the clan leader's tower and the others will be tossed into a different tower then the clan leader because towers can only suport so many people.
Or the auto mach making will see the clan as one group taking up six spots. I think this would be a better way for bungie to do auto mach making we have no control over entering towers from raids. Then at least the clan stays as a group.
Dose anyone else have a better understanding on this?

They all just join the same fire team. Then they can go to the same tower, and the same raid.

yes fire teams.
Currenty you can make a fire team of 6 and take them into a raid.
Sorry for using the wrong term clan instead of fire team.
(I can't remember every thing)
Even so if a fire team is trying to enter a tower that only has 4 spare spots. Either the auto mach making to stop over crouding of towers will split the fire team in to two without giving us any choice. Or the the auto mach making filter will keep the fire team as a group and the fire team will be put into a tower server that has room for the whole fire team.
I guess we will find out how this works on launch day.
As far as l watched there is no overiding the tower auto mach making as you enter because none it is done on the tv screen.
