Destiny Daily 5/15/15: Patch 1.2.0 Will Deploy Today, A Rising Tide, Xur Arrives

Destiny Daily

UPDATE: The scheduled Xur post has been canceled. Instead, Xur’s wares have been edited in below.

UPDATE 2: The site I use to get the bounty information without having to be logged in (was downloading the patch) is incorrect. The Vanguard bounties have been updated with the correct bounties for today.

Welcome back Guardians. Today is the day that we’ve been waiting for this week, patch 1.2.0 WILL deploy today. Once the patch notes drop, a separate post will go up. This patch will bring some world changes and the final preparation for the House of Wolves, which launches this Tuesday. Xur has also arrived in the Tower, and he’s selling an exotic rocket launcher. Unfortunately, it’s not the one most of us want, but it’s still a good one. A separate Xur post will be going up soon as well.

Here are the bounties for May 15th:

Vanguard Bounties

  • Knuckleduster – Melee kill 30 enemies without dying. [ 50 Rep / 2,500 XP ]
  • Fallen Leaders – Kill 10 Fallen Majors/Ultras.  [ 100 Rep / 5,000 XP ]
  • Body Dropper – Kill 100 enemies without dying. [ 100 Rep / 5,000 XP ]
  • Target: Sepkis Prime – Defeat Sepkis Prime in the ‘Devil’s Lair’ strike on Earth. [ 50 Rep / 2,500 XP ]
  • Target: Merok, Eir Prince- Defeat Merok in “The Sword of Crota” mission on the Moon with the Heroic modifier active.  [ 100 Rep / 5,000 XP ]
  • Patrol Mars – Complete 6 Patrol missions on Mars. [ 50 Rep / 2,500 XP, 10 Spirit Bloom ]

I’ll never understand why a strike boss is worth 50 rep and 2,500 XP while the “boss” of an easy mission is worth 100. Oh well, a pretty decent day for Vanguard bounties.

Crucible Bounties

  • Shake the Pillars – Defeat 25 Titans in the Crucible. [ 75 Rep / 3,750 XP ]
  • Longshot – Defeat 15 Guardians with Headshots using a Sniper Rifle. [ 100 Rep / 5,000 XP ]
  • Light the Way – Defeat 15 Guardians with a Super. [ 50 Rep / 2,500 XP ]
  • First Blood – Earn 3 First Blood medals. [ 100 Rep / 5,000 XP ]
  • Revengeance – Earn 5 Postmortem Medals. [ 100 Rep / 5,000 XP ]
  • In the Zone – Capture 10 Zones in Control.[ 50 Rep / 2,500 XP ]

The Crucible playlist for today is Skirmish.

That’s all for today folks as far as Destiny Daily goes. Patch 1.2.0 notes coming soon, as well as the Xur stuff. Destiny Daily will return Monday, and then Tuesday we’ll probably be a short one because the launch of House of Wolves will have an eight hour period where there is no Weekly Heroic, Nightfall, or Daily Heroic.

As always, if you’ve gotten any good loot or just want to say something, we’re glad to hear about it. So just us a comment below.
