The update will also fix Prismatic Recaster and Leviathan raid bugs.
Iron Banner is returning to Bungie’s Destiny 2 but there will also be a hotfix going live on August 4th. Update 188.8.131.52 is meant to fix some minor bugs related to the Nightfall and Leviathan raids. For instance, if you didn’t own Forsaken, then any tier of the Lake of Shadows Nightfall Ordeal above Adept was inaccessible. This will be fixed in the update.
Of course, the update also fixes a few things that were unintentionally benefiting players. The Festering Core Master Nightfall was supposed to be 1080 Power but actually had 750 Power enemies, making it much easier. Furthermore, XP, Glimmer and chances for Exotic/Bright Engrams are back on a weekly lockout for Leviathan raids. Armor and weapons can still be farmed though.
There will be server maintenance starting at 9 AM PDT on August 4th with update 184.108.40.206 rolling out at 10 AM PDT. Expect the full patch notes when the update goes live. Stay tuned for more details and in the meantime, check out the latest gameplay for Destiny 2: Beyond Light, which is out on November 10th, here.
Nightfall: The Ordeal
Fixed an issue where some players could not acquire the “Means to an End” quest from the Prismatic Recaster.
