In Other News

“In Other News” is a segment we post usually once a week, which lets you all know about some miscellaneous Destiny news or information that isn’t quite ‘news-worthy’ enough to warrant an entire article by itself. To see the previous In Other News article, click here.

Weekly Update Recap

What do you think about these changes? Solid improvements?

Weapons

  • You will be able to reach level 30 via Iron Banner armor.
  • The weapon types available will go from two to four, divided between drops on match victory, and purchase from Lord Saladin in the Tower.

Bounties

  • The value of Bounties has been bumped up and are more inclusive.

Reforging (New Feature)

  • Lord Saladin will offer players the option of Reforging any Iron Banner weapon for 1 Mote of Light. This will re-roll all of the upgrades, but will also reset any progression.

Tempered (New Feature)

  • In the next Iron Banner, you will still have the Rank achieved in the last, but the Iron Banner ranks have been increased to 5.
  • Reputation will eventually turn into an ‘Event Standing model’ where ranks are reset.
