In the mood for copious amounts of lag and nothing but Thorns? Iron Banner’s got you covered.
Bungie’s lag-tastic week-long PvP event has returned to Destiny with the Iron Banner. Given that The Taken King, the next major expansion for Destiny, will be out in the next few weeks and effectively negating all previously earned Legendaries, is there much use to playing Iron Banner (which is often fraught with lag issues, matchmaking and an overabundance of Thorns)?
Regardless, it’s here until next week’s reset. Lord Saladin returns with Iron Breed Boots for Hunters/Warlocks and Iron Breed Greaves for Titans at rank 3 of Iron Banner Standing. The Iron Breed Mask (Hunter), Iron Breed Hood (Warlock) and Iron Breed Great Helm (Titan) at rank 4.
In terms of weapons, there’s Felwinter’s Lie at rank 4 and Silimar’s Wrath at rank 5. If you want to wreck in Crucible before all the weapon changes, then you might want to grind for the Felwinter’s Lie, especially since it has a decent perk roll with Aggressive Ballistics, Shot Package and Kneepads.
