Secret Bonuses in Emblems? (Update)

Published on: Sep 27, 2014 @ 20:10

Could these cool looking Emblems from the Speaker offer hidden bonuses? He sells each of these “Blessing” Emblems for 7 Motes of Light, and until recently, it was assumed that they were similar to any other Emblem (cosmetic).

According to this post on the Bungie forums, the Emblems he sells actually have hidden bonuses. Remember: This has not been proven and they might not have any bonuses at all.

Update: We have off-the-record confirmation from Bungie, that emblems do not have any hidden buffs or bonuses of any kind.


Again, all of these may be totally inaccurate, as this is basically speculation with a bit of testing from the community – definitely do some testing yourself too. However, it would make sense that these Emblems provide some type of buff, hence the Blessing name and the high cost for them. 

Vex Mythoclast

In other news, one of the first Vex Mythoclast gameplay videos have been released! This Exotic Fusion Rifle is actually a primary weapon, acquired in the Vault of Glass on hard mode.

This is likely the rarest weapon in the game right now.

Ascendant materials

Speaking of Exotics, be sure to do the level 24+ daily Heroic missions so you can get Ascendant materials, which you’ll need for upgrading Legendary and Exotic items. You can only get these materials from the mission once per day per character, and only if you do it on the higher difficulties.

    So is getting Exotic Bounties random? Because I’ve turned in so many bounties and gotten nothing.

    • Andy Hinton

      I read somewhere that you have to do anywhere from 8 to 10 bounties a day not in including queens bounties to have a random chance of getting a exotic bounty. The other day when I read that somewhere I went and did just that one got one same day.

      • IceTitan

        I would agree that this is the case. I’ve been doing them the first hour they’re released and then doing them a second time later the same day. Using this method i’m on my second exotic bounty (bad juju).

    • lkennyb

      Exotic bounties have a 2% chance of dropping each time you turn in a bounty so the more bounties you complete the better your chances are, I’ve gotten two of them and I usually do every vanguard bounty every day and I also did many quenns bounties unroll the patch made it where you don’t get accendant shards for the queens armor. Good luck!

  • Andy Hinton

    So is this emblem thing true or is bungie just joking?

  • Mike Furini
