Haven't played Legendary mode yet. Is it still stupid hard?

It has its moments, but it's not like Halo 2's. I'll tell you now, Incineration Cannon Prometheans will be the bane of your existence.

Mission 6 is entirely broken, you can skip most of the mission with the Pelican. Tons of fights can be entirely skipped on most missions. Finally, if you beat the campaign on a lower difficulty, you can replay each mission from the last rally point on legendary and it still counts towards legendary completion.

No, it's easy. Well, it was easy for me. There weren't cheapshots in the game, so pay attention where the enemies are. That's it, you're set.

No, you can easily keep pushing forward and beat it on legendary pretty easily even if you suck at the game.

Where as in halo 1 and 2 legendary was hard enough to the point where you just can't get past a certain part unless you're good enough.

If I'd have known that I got rewards from beating it on legendary when I first beat it on normal mode I would have just done legendary mode to begin with. But now that I already beat it, to me it feels like to much of a hassle to replay one of the most boring campaigns again on legendary just for the rewards. I only play legendary campaign now when i reach the daily xp cap and have nothing better to do.

Btw the daily xp cap is stupid. I went from sr 64 to 69 today wanting to finish this specialization but hit the cap like two bars from 70. Arggggh. What were they thinking? I heard at launch the cap was even lower.

No problem. Although, I didn't come up with the trick. I saw it posted here the other day.
