Recent DestinyDB entries could point to new upcoming bounties from the Reef.
Destiny’s first and only PvE focused live event Queen’s Wrath could be returning prior to the release of the next expansion, House of Wolves. Several entries for various Reef bounties were discovered on DestinyDB for the same. Some of these bounties include defeating the Watchers of Crota in The Wakening (exclusive mission to The Dark Below) and completing a level 28 Vanguard Strike without dying (such strikes are apparently part of the upcoming Vanguard Dragon Strike playlist).
Further bounties also include hunting down new missions bosses like Nycor the Reborn. It also seems there will be a new Vanguard bounty to earn 20,000 XP in story missions with the Epic modifier active.Interestingly, bounties for Iron Banner were discovered but for the PvP mode Salvage. This is a 3v3 mode wherein teams must rush to salvage a relic and defend the process from their enemies.
However, Iron Banner has been based purely in Control till now. As one user pointed out, “Unfortunately the Iron Banner Salvage bounty has been in the DB since release. As for the other Iron Banner bounties, they were bounties used in the first two Iron Banners but they scrapped them to make easier bounties.”
So while Iron Banner Salvage may not be coming, there’s still a chance Queen’s Wrath could return, especially since the House of Wolves expansion focuses on the Reef and the Queen of the Awoken. Take this all with a grain of salt as usual and stay tuned for more information in the lead-up to House of Wolves.
