Bungie is also looking into “a new form of Flawless award weapons” for a future season.
Bungie’s Destiny 2 is currently in its tenth season of content, dubbed Season of the Worthy. Reactions to the new content, from the Seraph Towers to the recently added Guardian Games and Grandmaster Nightfall Ordeals, have been mixed at best. Then there’s Trials of Osiris, which went on hiatus prior to the launch of Destiny 2 and returned recently…only to fall flat as well.
The development team noted much of the feedback surrounding the game and announced plans to address major topics each week for the remainder of this season. The first major topic covered in This Week at Bungie is Trials of Osiris. Players have reported underwhelming rewards, especially for going flawless. It’s led to a situation where skilled players simply farm those with less than three wins for Tokens.
The solution? Bungie will have “Token payout milestones at 3/5/7 wins that give successively larger chunks of tokens. Bonus Tokens Passage should increase these payouts, and on a flawless run it will generate a significant token payout.” Whether it will be more efficient, especially given the higher risk, remains to be seen.
Players who can’t get to three wins will also have something to work towards. The development team will, “Create a weekly bounty that encourages participation each weekend and does not require match wins. When redeemed, the bounty will reward the same item that comes from the three-win passage unlocking the engram for purchase that week.”
Aditionally, in an attempt to make Trials of Osiris more rewarding with regards to the endgame, there will be “More chances to earn Masterworking materials from Trials. Masterworking/infusion materials will come from 3/5/7 win payouts in Season 11.” It will also look at adding a card focused on farming materials in Season 12.
Finally, with regards to Adept weapons, the developer said that “We’re currently investigating a new form of Flawless award weapons for a future Season. They might not have the same name, but these weapons would have some differences in order to set them apart. Right now we are currently looking at giving these weapons the ability to replaces the weapon mod slot with an adept mod slot (name may change) that can accept custom-built mods in addition to the normal list of weapon mods. All of this is subject to change as we continue to develop but wanted to give you an early look. We’ll share more details in the future.”
Sadly, many of the listed solutions won’t arrive until Season 11 which doesn’t currently have a release date. We’ll see if players can ride out the current wave until then. Stay tuned for more details otherwise.
