Who the heck finds this out!? (Destiny)

Apparently, if you unequip your Sentry gear when you’re at 5 stacks, you keep the Taken damage buff without penalty, letting you melt the blockers and boss on the second damage phase in seconds.

Yep, I feel like just stripping all my armor off right before a win.


There's whole groups that hop into private matches just to test out every minutiae for the sake of numbers. I'm sure they were testing exactly how much of a buff the perks were, then were shocked when they unequipped the gear and the buff stayed.

But yeah, gear-specific buffs staying after you remove the gear? That's just basic playtesting. I'm amazed that it got into the game.

Changing armor mid game is an edge case. Yes, they should have caught it, but it's not exactly testing checklist 101.
