New Quest/Activity "Presage" (Destiny)

I’d love more of those timed missions in the future as well

Counterpoint: After ten-ish attempts, I was never once able to finish the Zero Hour mission, and I blame that entirely on the fact that it was on a countdown timer.

When it first dropped, I was under-leveled / the enemies were too hard. Months (years?) later, before Beyond Light, every LFG group I joined would quit after any member fell more than two times. Never got further than the electric wall.

I really, really, really appreciate that these new missions aren't on a timer.

I fully agree with you on this point - I'm generally a 'slow but steady' guy, and the timer kills me.

As a minor counterpoint, though, we ran through the Master Presage last night (which HAS a 25 minute timer), and failed twice... the third attempt was successful. And it felt pretty satisfying. So sometimes, timers are good. :)

I think this is the best case scenario: the easy/default version is un-timed and the more skillful version has a timer. That seems reasonable to me.
