Destiny The Dawning Update Adjusts Skeleton Key Drop Rate
Nightfall unavailable on December 13th from 1 AM PST.
Bungie provided a few more quality of life details about its upcoming update for Destiny coinciding with the release of The Dawning.
As per the developer in its latest weekly update, the drop rate for Skeleton Keys has been “slightly increased” in the SIVA Crisis, SIVA Crisis Heroic and Weekly Nightfall playlists. Those who complete the Nightfall will also receive one Skeleton Key per account each week. Considering that Skeleton Keys are required for obtaining max Light level Strike loot, the buff in drop rates are good but receiving one key per account is kind of stingy.
It was also noted that characters after level 40 will now automatically convert Uncommon Engrams to weapon and armour parts when picking them up. No more of these Engrams clogging up your inventory space in Archon’s Forge. Furthermore, you can now buy Passage Coins from Brother Vance for Trials of Osiris with Motes of Light.
Just keep in mind that the Nightfall won’t be available on December 13th from 1 AM PST onwards until update 2.5.0 is live.
