    Fixed an issue in which Vex Mythoclast was not respawning with primary ammunition

    I'm hoping this is the one where the Mythoclast turns into a normal Fusion Rifle with charge time etc. that was annyoing as fuck in IB and usually last a full match.

    Yay Truth!

    That wraps up my Xbox One collection o' Exotics!
    (Right in time for HoW I suppose....)

    Thanks Xur! You've been looking out for me recently. I can only imagine it's time to sell Sunbreakers again.

    I'll believe that when I see it, for example - how many times were we told that the new maps would be included in Iron Banner now? I think its 6, they are still not in.

    Destiny Hot Fix - 05/19/2015
    1.2.0.1 : The one with House of Wolves

    Along with the release of Destiny Expansion II, we are delivering some new investment and upgrade paths. The following are changes that will have an impact on every player of Destiny.

    PVP
    General
    Added a new Daily Reward package upon completion of the first game in the Daily Featured Crucible playlist
    Added Passage Coins to reward streams across all playlists, including the Daily reward package
    Increased Crucible Mark drop rate across all playlists by 100%
    Increased Crucible Reputation earnings across all playlists by 100%
    Increased Rare Weapons and Gear drop chance for completing games across all playlists by 100%
    Added Legendary Weapon drops into the Crucible reward stream across all playlists
    Added Dark Below maps into all Crucible playlists for all players to enjoy (Pantheon, The Cauldron, Skyshock)

    Iron Banner
    Adjusted the power curve for Iron Banner playlists to accommodate the competitive range of power in House of Wolves
    Across one Iron Banner event, players competing in Iron Banner with more than one character on the same account will receive a reputation boost for the lower-ranked characters to reach parity with the higher-ranked character more quickly
    Six additional Iron Banner bounties have been added to the bounty rotation
    Removed an errant buff from Iron Banner Control playlist
    Etheric Light will now be available at Ranks 3 and 5 in Iron Banner

    Tower
    The Cryptarch will no longer convert newly acquired Legendary Engrams to Shards (possibilities include gear/weapons or exotics)
    Daily Heroics will produce Motes of Light in lieu of Shards
    Ascending: Year 1 Legendary and Exotic gear can be upgraded to the highest power levels available in Year 1

    User Interface
    The Control UI above the mini scoreboard has been fixed & returned to the players HUD

    Technical
    Added a new “Connection Recovery” System
    Specific player networking problems will now be fixed instead of kicking affected players to orbit
    This will be enabled first for Trials of Osiris and rolled out to other activities over time


    Interesting Iron Banner changes:

    Across one Iron Banner event, players competing in Iron Banner with more than one character on the same account will receive a reputation boost for the lower-ranked characters to reach parity with the higher-ranked character more quickly (I'm happy about this one, as a newly married man "I need all three Helms!" is apparently not an acceptable excuse for ignoring your new wife for 5 days.)

    @Dajoran got today's patch notes in text form, but he left out all of the HoW stuff that will go live on the 19th (he may have run out of characters).

    Full notes are here: LINK

    Stuff coming on the 19th:
    The following is a preview of changes that will take effect on May 19th, 2015 on or soon after 10AM PST with the manual activation of House of Wolves.

    It also means that if you have 3 competitive characters, you can max out your equipment in 1 Iron Banner more easily.

    Question about exotic bounties: If I finish Bad Juju now, will I get the upgraded version or the base? And should I wait to finish it until Tuesday?

    You'll get a 331 Bad Juju that requires leveling (if that's what you mean).

    I get the feeling 365 gear will always require Etheric Light, so you might as well finish it.

    You'll most likely receive the Dark Below base damage stat if you finish the bounty now - not sure what damage Exotics would begin from come Tuesday, but I'd assume it would be the 331 base, like the other items we've been seeing.

    But, I think if you finish it now and work on fully upgrading it between now and Tuesday, when HoW drops you'll be able to ascend it to the new max if you have an exotic shard (someone can correct me if I'm wrong.)

    That's what I was hoping for, the 331 version. Right now I have a "pre-Dark Below" Red Death, which would require a shard to upgrade to 331, which I don't want to spend. I'd rather finish Juju and get that.

    Awesome. This should help with Etheric Light too. Quickly getting to Rank 3 on all characters shouldn't be bad at all.

    Can anybody explain how exactly the gear scaling/normalization works in Crucible matches? Is my legendary auto-rifle going to do more damage than my rare auto-rifle? What about my "vanilla" level rare pulse rifle compared to an Expansion 1 pulse rifle? What if one is fully upgraded but the other isn't?

  • FreiFrei sauntering downwards Registered User regular
    Definitely bring a good arc shotgun if you have one for the Queen's Wrath bounties. These patrol captains are no joke.

    Ignore the Attack rating. All that matters are the white bars (impact, range, stability, etc. and the unlockable perks). Everyone has the same heath/shields so your defense value doesn't matter either. In your class skill selection the armor, recovery, agility do matter.

    Yeah, it's apparently something like a teaser or preview weekend for House of Wolves.

    The Fallen have invaded and the Queen's Emissary has come to the tower to call forth Guardians willing to answer the Queen's Call to Hunt.


    My Warlock, in the Queen's Colors, will be busy this weekend.

    Also picked up Don't Touch Me through an exotic engram, which is delicious.

    Hopefully you bought the Skullfort after the patch, as it apparently went from a mediocre roll (100 DIS) to the max roll (125 DIS).

    But yeah, having Transfusion always on isn't great, but it does indeed look cool.

    Sorry, Chanus, but Radiant Dance Machines look dumb as all hell. They just do not seem to fit the Hunter aesthetic.
