Radiant Materials, Raid Gear, Hard Mode

Published on: Dec 3, 2014 @ 11:58

Raid gear is going to be obtained and upgraded differently in The Dark Below!

The hard mode of Crota’s End – level 33 difficulty – will be available in January.

Upgrading

First off, the way upgrading raid gear has been completely changed.

As we showed in this article, Radiant Materials are used to upgrade the Legendary raid gear – instead of the Ascendant Materials that all other Legendary gear needs.

Radiant Energy and Radiant Shards are acquired exclusively in the Crota’s End raid.

In addition, if you break down unwanted raid gear, you’ll also be able to get Radiant Materials.

Eris Morn offers the ability to switch out Radiant Energy for Radiant Shards and vice versa.

Drop Refinements

In Crota’s End, Bungie has added the ability for Destiny to track the drops you’ve already had, as well as how long its been since you received a particular item.

You’ll now have a more consistent reward experience with the raid, which will be available on December 9th.

Primary Raid Weapons

The new primary weapons will only be available through the hard mode of the Crota’s End raid, which is going to be released sometime in January.
