So you're telling me the investment system is what's having a negative impact here? Oh wow, who could have imagined that! :-p

Actually what I said was Bungie's cutting off of older content from the investment system is the problem. They can literally fix this at any time - they just demonstrated this when they raised the gear power caps and drop lock-outs on all the raids slated to be DCV'd. Menagerie doesn't have to be "stale" and removing it is a massive negative to Destiny's breadth of gameplay unless there's a similar replacement in the content pipe.

Right but, the NEW content is supposed to be ostensibly driven by gear acquisition in an investment system. If you can get the gear you need in older activities…

You are looking at this too black and white. It's just just about the gear. The Menagerie isn't stale, it fits a niche that isn't seen anywhere in Destiny. With the new light level the rewards from it have gone stale, but the gameplay is not. You are only looking at the item rewards part of the "investment system". The time and fun part of the investment is still there.

What I believe squid is saying is that if they would just bring the item investment side up to par then there is no reason to vault it. Because then it would fit all of the requirements for current and great content.

I know you like banging on the fact that Destiny is steeped in getting the next best item/gear, but it's not all that.
