The group I was in I was the only one that had that problem.

Maybe it's a TAG thing.

Wow, Holy hell gear sets dropping like crazy last night in HVT missions. I scored four 240 pieces, and a complete Lone Star gear set (set blows). Some missions I got two gear pieces from the boss drop and then one for the mission reward. I can't see it being this generous going forward, it's just too good. 

The HVT missions are a lot of fun. It's nice to also have reason to kick it in the PvE side of things again.

 

How long were you farming HVT for?

We did all the dailies and weeklies, took us about a two hrs. Once you complete them you don't get the mission rewards, and I think boss drops.

Once you complete the daily and weekly HVT missions you can't keep playing them and collecting the mission reward. It's a one and done deal. 

I don't know if it's a glitch, or also so you can't easily farm HE gear, but one person in our party also didn't get any drops from the HVT either, on his subsequent playthroughs.

So far I really like this update. Less grindy and more fun. Got 2 set drops,bought one and got a new rifle. We tried the incursion but got wiped at the main part a few times and called it a night. Good times @BDaddyK @IJSTKKDURAZZ @PachucoBro

Most definitely good times. They really brought the fun back with the latest update.

The HVTs and search and destroy missions have helped me gear up quite a bit. A very welcome change of bringing a bit more life back into the PvE world as well. 

However, I'm getting the UI bug, and it seems to become exponentially worse with each group I join. First group it's a double of my UI, second it's a triple, and I've gone up to a quad now after finishing the daily challenge mission. Damn does my map lag when I try to load it lmao.

I made the mistake of thinking that since I breezed through the search and destroy missions that my first HVT would be too.

Four or five of those damned heavies for that doctor one. G'damn...

I rolled with just one other guy last night and doing the dailies were not bad till we got to the last one. There were mobs and mobs and we wiped a few times but finally got it. I got 4 set items and quite a few golds last night.

Are the search and destroy or HVT mission difficulties at all affected directly by the zone level they're in? For instance, if I stuck to just the top-right for search and destroy, would I end up with higher level mobs and a higher chance of drops, or no?

I don't think so, I think it just goes by the difficulty of the target selected, they're in descending order of difficulty at the vendor.

The HVT's are certainly fun. Relyt and I did all of the daily ones basically 2 man and then a friend of his from work jumped on and we did all the weekly ones 3man. The one with all the heavy cleaners was great fun. Would have been much more manageable with a 4th and none of us are incredibly geared, but it was fun. I like that drops are way better now. Still haven't had time to get to the incursion though.

I can say HVT's don't give you anything if you already completed them. You can join another player for his dailies/weekly if you have already done them, but the bosses won't drop anything at all. You still get the bird bucks for it though so it is strange.
