Destiny Daily 1/3/18: Hotfix Patch Notes, Challenges & Modifiers

Destiny Daily

Destiny 2 was down for maintenance the majority of this morning to deliver Hotfix 1.1.1.2. Normally we’d do a separate post for patch notes, these are so thin that we’ll just include them here. This hotfix allowed non-Curse of Osiris owners to still be able to do Iron Banner and Faction Rallies. Faction Rallies I’m fine with, but I’m pretty sure Iron Banner always required you to own the latest DLC since the playlist included those maps. If you’re not going to open up the crucible maps for everyone regardless during Iron Banner, then I’d rather Iron Banner have remained a DLC requirement. An event like Iron Banner isn’t “base game” activity, it’s an event that should grow with the game.

Hotfix 1.1.1.2 Notes:

Iron Banner: Players who do not own Curse of Osiris may once again access Iron Banner when available

Faction Rallies: Players who do not own Curse of Osiris may once again pledge to Factions during Faction Rally events

Daily Milestone

Ikora’s Challenge: Complete 5 Challenges


Heroic Adventure Modifiers

Heroic Adventures can be acquired by Brother Vance in the Lighthouse on Mercury, and should reset daily (but are bugged and do not). If you can do them today, here are the modifiers:

  • Momentum: Health and shield regeneration stop when you’re not moving. Sprint to speed up regeneration.
  • Risk and Reward: Super, melee, and grenades deal more damage but recharge more slowly.

Momentum again, good lord. And Risk and Reward too, that’s like putting trickle on when trickle is already a permanent modifier. Completely unfun set of modifiers.
