Destiny The Taken King_Crucible 03

Destiny is a work in progress, and the game we have right now is far different (and better) than the game that launched a year ago. But a lot of the issues that Destiny originally launched with still remain, and as more and more content gets bolted on to the game, newer issues still crop up.

Happily, Bungie (finally) seems to be responding to community feedback, as the newest patch for the game brings with it a number of fixes and changes that most players will be thrilled to see. Bungie has nerfed the overpowered Nightstalker Hunter, and tweaked the balance of loot drops, among other things, in this newest update:


Nightstalker Hunter

  • Temporarily removed the extra shots from Quiver to avoid unlimited Shadowshots. This is a temporary fix, and the node will be restored in a fixed state in an upcoming patch


Daily Heroic Story

  • Removed deprecated Quest requirements from “Siege of the Warmind”
  • Removed deprecated Quest requirements from “The Wakening”

Weekly Nightfall Strike

  • Increased the base level of Nightfall Legendary rewards by 10 Attack/Defense
  • Increased the chance of Legendary rewards by 10% (from 50% to 60%)
  • Increased the number of Strange Coins or Three of Coins awards
  • Ghosts have been added to the Legendary reward loot table
  • Legendary Engrams no longer drop from Nightfall Strike boss kills. They will continue to drop their unique Legendary items
  • Removed Antiquated Runes from the loot tables

King’s Fall

  • King’s Fall Hard Mode will be available at 10AM on 10/23
  • Recommended Light is 310
  • King’s Fall Hard Mode has the following changes:
    – King’s Fall Hard Mode rewards will drop up to 320 Light
    – Oryx in Hard Mode will guarantee a Raid item drop each week, without requiring Moldering Shards
    – Oryx in Normal mode will still require Moldering Shards
    – Moldering Shards can drop in King’s Fall Hard Mode, but only if a character hasn’t cleared King’s Fall Normal for the week


Weekly Crucible Bounty

  • Increased base level of Weekly Crucible Bounty Legendary rewards by 10 Attack
  • Increased number of Strange Coins awarded
  • Ghosts have been added to the Legendary reward loot table
