Destiny Patch 1.0.2 Is Available Now

destiny-header

Patch 1.0.2 is now live for Destiny. This patch makes it so that legendary engrams will always decrypt into legendary or exotic weapons, gear, or materials, and blue engrams will always decrypt into rare or better weapons, gear, or materials with an increased chance of legendary items. Patch notes below. With this patch, we address some widely-discussed concerns with how Engrams are earned and claimed. Strikes have become more rewarding, and the rewards gained from them are more predictable. Also affected is the rotation of maps that appear in the Crucible. Cryptarch Legendary (purple) engrams will always produce a Legendary quality item or higher Note: Legendary engrams that exist in your inventory will change to Rare quality items when the patch is applied. However, … [Read more...]

seraphim-vault

UPDATE #2: The patch is now live. Patch notes can be found here. UPDATE: If you're playing now, you've likely seen the message saying that the game world would be rebooting soon and to expect interruptions. That's because the patch is going live momentarily. https://twitter.com/Bungie/status/517354405717217280 It's happening! ORIGINAL: Well unfortunately yesterday came and went with no Patch 1.0.2., and as of now it isn't out. Bummer. I'm holding off doing the Weekly Heroic Strike until the patch, so they need to hurry it up already. I did have a weird bug today; I went to the Tower and there was no one there. I don't just mean other players, there was no vendors or roaming NPC's either. The place was a ghost town. Weird. Here are the bounties for today: Vanguard TARGET: ASKOR, … [Read more...]

Destiny Daily 9/30/14: Weekly Reset, New Weekly Strike/Nightfall

destiny-daily

It's Tuesday, that glorious day where things reset in Destiny. Those of us who hit the weekly limit for Marks can once again start earning them (so long as you don't have 200 stored, which is the max for some reason). There's a new Weekly Heroic Strike to conquer to earn some Strange Coins. And of course there is a harder version of that in the Weekly Nightfall, where you can get exotic or legendary rewards, or materials (I completed last week's yesterday and got the worst reward possible... six Strange Coins). No, the patch isn't out yet. Hopefully sometime today, though Bungie never said anything other than "next week." Now the bounties for 9/30: Vanguard It's All In The Head - Kill 100 enemies with precision damage (+100 Rep, +5000 XP) Exalted Hive - Kill 10 Hive Majors or … [Read more...]

Destiny Daily 9/29/14: Last Day of Crytparch Disappointment

destiny-daily

As you may have noticed, there wasn't a "Destiny Daily" for Saturday or Sunday... that's pretty much how it's going to be go forward as well. Tomorrow is when Patch 1.0.2 is scheduled to be deployed, and that's the patch that positively changes the way some loot is handled. Legendary engrams will always decrypt to legendary or better gear/weapons/materials and rare engrams will always decrypt to rare or better gear/weapons/materials with an increased chance of being a legendary. Engrams will also be added to Daily Heroic story mission, weekly Strike, and the Vanguard Tiger strike playlist. Today however is your last chance to hit your Vanguard or Crucible Mark limit for the week. I easily hit the Vanguard limit for the week, but not the Crucible... that's because I'm sitting on 200 … [Read more...]

Postitive Changes Come To Destiny Loot System Next Week in Patch 1.0.2

destiny-header

Next week, Bungie will be releasing patch 1.0.2 for Destiny and they've gone ahead and posted the patch preview on their website. In short, positive things are happening with the loot and from the patch on when you see a legendary engram, you can get excited. But this only applies to engrams that drop AFTER the patch hits, so there's no sense in holding on to your legendary engrams that you get before the patch. Here's the preview, courtesy of Bungie: Cryptarch Changes  Cayde-6 took the Cryptarch aside and showed him a sack of doorknobs. He decoded that mystery pretty quickly. Legendary Engrams will always produce Legendary or better quality items, including Materials or Exotics Rare Engrams will always produce Rare or better quality items Rare engrams will have an … [Read more...]
