Destiny Daily 5/12/15: Patch 1.2.0 Drops Today, Weekly Reset, Secure The Warmind

Destiny Daily

UPDATE: Bungie has just tweeted that Patch 1.2.0 will NOT deploy today.

It’s reset day, and patch day, so Destiny Daily will be pretty quick. The Nightfall/Weekly is Omingul, and I’ll be talking about that shortly in the Destiny Weekly post. Also, the patch notes for patch 1.2.0 will be posted in a separate post as soon as the patch drops and Bungie releases the official notes.

With that said, let’s get right into the beginning of the final week before House of Wolves. Here are your bounties for May 12th:

Vanguard Bounties

  • Walking Tall – Complete any Strike without dying. [ 100 Rep / 5,000 XP ]
  • Exalted Hive – Kill 10 Hive Majors or Ultras.  [ 100 Rep / 5,000 XP ]
  • Fallen Leaders – Kill 10 Fallen Majors or Ultras. [ 100 Rep / 5,000 XP ]
  • Target: Sekrion – Defeat Nexus Mind Sekrion in the “Nexus” Strike on Venus. [ 50 Rep / 2,500 XP ]
  • Target: Simkis-3 – Defeat Simiks-3 in “The Archive” mission on Venus with the Heroic modifier active.  [ 100 Rep / 5,000 XP ]
  • Patrol The Moon – Complete 6 Patrol missions on the Moon. [ 50 Rep / 2,500 XP, 10 Helium Filaments ]

A great day for Vanguard bounties. You can get Walking Tall, Exalted Hive, and Fallen Leaders while doing the Nightfall or Weekly (which is Omingul). I’m not including the Eris section, but don’t forget to swing by there and pick up The Cleansing for your three Motes of Light.

Crucible Bounties

  • Forged in Fire – Win 2 Crucible matches. [ 100 Rep / 5,000 XP ]
  • In the Zone – Capture 10 zones in Control. [ 50 Rep / 2,500 XP ]
  • Ash and Dust – Defeat 15 Guardians with a Rocket Launcher. [ 50 Rep / 2,500 XP ]
  • Back Scratcher – Earn 50 Assists in the Crucible. [ 50 Rep / 2,500 XP ]
  • Headhunter – Defeat 50 Guardians with headshots. [ 100 Rep / 5,000 XP ]
  • Revengeance – Earn 5 Postmortem medals. [ 100 Rep / 5,000 XP ]

The Crucible playlist for today is Control, which is perfect as it allows you to get the XP bonus while completing the In the Zone bounty (as well as every Crucible bounty today). This is an easy day to complete all of the Crucible bounties.


The Warmind

Old Russia, Earth

“Break the House of Devils’ grasp on the Cosmodrome and secure a vital link to the Golden Age.”


  • Heroic – Enemies appear in greater numbers and are more aggressive.
  • Lightswitch – Minions of the Darkness deal much more melee damage.


Level 22:

  • Cryptarch Engram
  • 10 Spinmetal
  • 5 Vanguard Marks
  • 4,800 XP

Level 26:

  • Ascendant Material
  • Cryptarch Engram
  • 12 Spinmetal
  • 5 Vanguard Marks
  • 6,000 XP

Level 30:

  • 2 Ascendant Materials
  • Cryptarch Engram
  • 16 Spinmetal
  • 5 Vanguard Marks
  • 7,500 XP

This one is pretty easy, but Lightswitch is no joke. There are stealth vandals that will gladly kill you, and if you’re not careful you never know when a captain will appear and melee you (which is how I died in the video below). Speaking of that video, it was filmed back in January… when auto rifles were still decent and shotguns hadn’t been buffed. I will be updating all Daily Heroic story missions on the level 32 version once House of Wolves releases.


Again, patch 1.2 goes live sometime after 12pm CT. Once Bungie releases the patch, and the notes, a separate post will go up that will detail what’s changing with the patch. It will be a substantial patch in terms of world changes and making the final preparation for House of Wolves. I would imagine those who dig around the database will uncover a lot of House of Wolves stuff, so there may even be an additional post sometime later this evening.

If you’re looking for the Nightfall and Weekly Heroic information, that’s coming right up in a separate post titled Destiny Weekly. Then the patch notes later, so it’s very much a Destiny heavy day here on The Vortex Effect, as it will be quite often going forward.

That’s going to wrap us up for today. Tomorrow’s intro will probably be a little longer, as I’ll likely use that space to talk about the patch and whatever loot I get from the Nightfall (assuming I do it today, which I may not). I’ll have some streaming coming up throughout the week as well, so feel free to follow me on Twitch at PatriotPaine to get notified when I go live on stream.
