https://www.reddit.c...coin_discovery/


Greetings Guardians! I'm a daily reader of this sub for staying up to date on this game, but I have never posted anything of my own.

As you all may know, last week we were made aware that we still have not discovered the proper utilization of 3oC.

I think my fireteam may have found it.

After some thorough testing over the weekend, along with the help of fellow guardians learning the true nature of the Three of Coin tarot, we believe that there is a direct relation with the vanguard strike streak to our precious 3oC. This method has given us 9 exotics out of 10 coins used.

Here are the steps...

Make sure that you do not have the 3oC buff active (kill a ultra if you do)
Load into the vanguard strike playlist (Heroic strikes seem to work as well)
Complete two strikes without 3oC
On the beginning of the third strike (once you have loaded in, and are on the ground) activate a Three of Coin and proceed the strike as normal
Killing an ultra has given us a 90% chance of an exotic
Exit back to orbit and return to the playlist
EDIT: A clarifying answer: if the third strike is dust palace, complete it and pop the three of coin on the forth strike and we also received an exotic, you can do this solo or with a partial fireteam. We Did experiment with popping the ToC too early (at the end of the second strike), this resulted in no exotic while my friend who was running the strikes with me popped his at the beginning of the third resulted in an exotic for him.

I need more data, guardians, help me out, go get some engrams. Disprove me if you can!

It's dark out there Guardian, go bring us back the light.

Update 1: I went home on my lunch break to continue testing this theory. I loaded into the vanguard strike playlist with one other person in my fireteam. We completed the Saber strike, then Dust Palace. At the beginning of the darkblade (third strike), my friend popped their 3oc. We got to the end without any wipes. Before dropping down, I popped my 3oc. We killed the darkblade without any wipes, we both then got exotic drops (primary and chest). I loaded us out to orbit, they had to leave. I loaded into a solo strike, completed the dust palace, undying mind, and then on the saber strike I popped another 3oc as I dropped down into the boss room. Upon completing the strike (again, no wipes) I got another exotic (helm).

This has been my experience where I personally have received 11 exotic engrams out of 12 usages of 3oc. This may be RNG, this may be luck, or I'm totally just hacking bungies servers. If you plan on trying this but have a question: please try it out. I have only tried the method that I have posted, so I most likely wont have an answer. Good luck out there. I'll be busy working for the rest of the day :)

edit: Spelling, formatting, added step 6.

wow.. id love it if that was true....  I usually just pop one before i kill a boss, and get around 2 exotics per 20 coins or so.......  11 out of 12 is even better than the week of 3oC farming Draksis

 

Ahhh Draksis.... I miss our old times together

Tried it last night

Ran 3 strikes nothing on the third one after following instructions

Ran another 3 strikes last strike was saber. Got an exotic but i popped the coin about halfway through strike.

Now on side note. I have been farming saber for the devouring maw helmet for at least 100 tries. Got it last night with the exotic drop. Could of been coincidence but i am not a guy who believes in coincidence.

Yeah - I tried this last night as well.  Ran 2 strikes - then popped 3oC on the start of the Shield Brothers stike - got nothing.  Still haven't gotten the Gauntlets from them yet either.

I read through Reddit a bit about this and some people are replicating it but most people are failing.  So there might be something to it but the description they've given so far isn't enough. It may be necessary for all 3 members of a fireteam to have the 3oC active.  

 

3 of coins

3 strikes

3 fireteam members active 

 

That would be pretty Bungielike.  Still unlikely this has anything to do with anything.

Maybe you cannot die in the 3rd strike?
