Destiny Daily 10/28/14: New Nightfall, Patch 1.0.2.3., Daily Bounties, All Hallow’s Eve Package

Destiny Daily

Lots of exciting stuff on this Tuesday, Guardians. It’s the start of a new week in Destiny, which means the ability to earn Marks again as well as loot from the Raid, and a new Nightfall/Weekly Heroic to tackle for loot as well. For those of us playing on PS4, there was/is a substantial update to the OS to download and install before jumping into Destiny. Then there’s also Patch 1.0.2.3 for Destiny that needs to be downloaded and installed. I’ll post the patch notes at the end of the post.

When you head to the tower, you’ll notice you have a package waiting for you at the Postmaster. It is a legendary package titled “All Hallows’ Eve.” It’s description is: Guardian! Do not forget that you returned from the dark. Celebrate these days of the risen dead. When you open it, you’ll get three consumable items called Jackolyte. “The Hive may haunt the dreams of children, but you haunt the dreams of the Hive.” I haven’t used it to see what the hell it does yet. But nevertheless, it’s at least something Halloween related.

Here are the bounties for 10/28:

Daily Heroic Mission: Eye of a Gate Lord

Location: Ishtar Sink, Venus

Description:

  • Lure out the Vex Gate Lord that protects the Endless Steps and bring its head back to the Awoken.

Modifiers:

  • HEROIC – Enemies appear in greater numbers and are more aggressive.
  • JUGGLER – No ammo drops for your equipped weapon.

Rewards:

  • Cryptarch Engram
  • Vanguard Marks +5
  • +4800 XP (lvl 20) l +6000 XP (lvl 24) l +7500 XP (lvl 28)
  • Ascendant Material (lvl 24) l 2 Ascendant Materials (lvl 28)

This one is really easy. If you have Ice Breaker, equip it and use it the whole time. If not, bring your best sniper rifle and some ammo for it.

Weekly Heroic Strike & Nightfall: The Nexus

Location: Ishtar Sink, Venus

Description:

  • The Darkness seethes as the Vex tear at space and time in their Nexus below the surface of Venus.

Weekly Heroic Modifiers:

  • HEROIC – Enemies appear in greater numbers and are more aggressive.
  • VOID BURN – Void Damage from any source is greatly increased.

Weekly Heroic Rewards:

  • 3 Strange Coins (lvl 22) l 6 Strange Coins (lvl 26) l 9 Strange Coins (lvl 28)

  • ANGRY – Minions of the Darkness won’t flinch, even after massive damage.

  • VOID BURN – Void Damage from any source is greatly increased.
  • NIGHTFALL – If all players die, your Fireteam is returned to Orbit.

Nightfall Rewards:

  • Unknown Rewards

This was the first Nightfall I did. It was Solar Burn at the time, so it should be even easier this time considering I have Atheon’s Epilogue. Not a fan of the Juggler modifier though. Bring your void weapons, and remember you can skip most of the fights on the way to the boss.

Here’s a video from YouTube showing how to cheese it.

Update 1.0.2.3. – Patch Notes

Summary
This update makes Destiny a more stable experience for all players. We’re also changing the player experience in the Raid to ensure that the activity provides an endgame challenge that meets project goals for the intended level of difficulty.

 

General
  • Fixed an issue in which multiple errors reported with Zebra error codes
  • Errors previously reporting as Zebra will now display as their own separate codes
  • Fixed a rare issue related to being Kicked To Login repeatedly
  • Fixed a rare issue that resulted in a Kick To Orbit reported with the Cockatoo error code
Servers
  • Fixed an issue where some players would occasionally be erroneously kicked at the beginning of an activity due to a server error
  • Increased protection against account corruption
Raid
  • Fixed an issue where Atheon was not choosing random targets for teleport through the timestream during the final encounter on the Vault of Glass
  • Fixed an exploit where Atheon could be forced off his platform
More updates are to follow as we continue to support Destiny. Future enhancements being worked on include Exotic Weapon tuning, new features for voice communication between matchmade teammates, and the ability to hold more Bounties in your pocket at any time.

That’s all for today Guardians. Get out there and complete those bounties, and the Nightfall mission (do it first and get that 25% XP/REP boost).
