Destiny Weekly 10/20 – 26/15: Nightfall Patch Inbound, Dust Palace, King’s Fall Hard Mode Releases This Week

Destiny Weekly

Welcome back to another week in Destiny. This week, for the first time ever, Dust Palace is the Nightfall. I may regret saying this later, but it actually doesn’t look bad. Speaking of the Nightfall, hold off on doing it until the patch drops. If you missed it, Bungie tweeted yesterday that a hot fix would deploy today around 12pm CT that would fix Nightfall rewards (i.e. they should be worth it now and not total crap).

Unless everyone gets a 310 exotic, I still expect to see a lot of complaining. But hopefully things are fixed and you can no longer get garbage rewards like an antiquated rune (i.e. three legendary marks).

Of course the big thing this week is the release of King’s Fall hard mode, and with it the “light cap” is getting raised to 320. That releases Friday at 12pm CT.

But for now, let’s dive into this week’s weekly reset…
