House of Wolves Reveal Stream

The Reef – Gear Upgrades

Wednesday, April 22nd

11 AM Pacific


Join us for a walking tour of the Vestian Outpost. Meet the vendors with whom you’ll trade bravery for treasure. Learn about their motivations and objectives.

Creative Director Christopher Barrett will be your guide. Special community guest Gothalion will ask the questions about what the next expansion to Destiny means for all of us.


We’ll tackle these burning curiosities:

  • Who will issue our new walking orders?
  • What do we stand to gain from this alliance?
  • What will happen to our existing gear?
  • Will we ever want to visit the Tower again? [Hint: Yes!]


It’s been a busy week for Destiny news, so this update was admittedly light. We’re hard at work planning the events that will bring you into the sweet, purple glow of The Reef. Please don’t worry about being starved for details. Week over week, we’ll serving up delicious chiclets of information about the House of Wolves.

All will be revealed.

Bounties, Blades, and Logins

In Update 1.1.2, Bungie has added new audio controls that can be found under the Settings tab. These controls have some settings worth noting. You can read up on these settings in our 1.1.2 Audio Guide.

Players have reported that they are unable to find Blades of Crota on Moon Patrols. If you’re still looking for the Blades of Crota, you can still find them in the Fist of Crota mission.

There has been some confusion regarding reward packages in the Postmaster. Please note, new deliveries sent to a full Postmaster inbox can trigger erroneous notifications. We have added additional Vault space. Grab some rewards from the Postmaster and use your expanded Vault today.

We recently updated the Microsoft authentication path for Bungie.net to require an associated Xbox Live Gamertag via www.xbox.com. This change in authentication will help enable Xbox One friends to be visible on web and the Companion App. It goes live on Monday.

    I wonder if xur will come to the reef ever like maybe on Tuesday-Wednesday

    • NeverTheOne

      I wouldn’t think so…and maybe that’s why there’s the hint about us still “wanting” to go back to The Tower. Perhaps Xur will be selling the new exotics off and on like he does now. If that’s Bungie’s way of saying that we’ll still want to go back to The Tower, then that wouldn’t be enough incentive for this Guardian.

      I’m sure Iron Banner updates will still be Tower-only… I can’t really think of anything else that would bring anyone back.

      • BoRed

        New inventory at crucible/vanguard vendors and at the 3 factions, maybe. The bounty tracker/Eris, if you’re trying to level up (that’s assuming Eris sticks around the tower and that the tower bounty tracker has exclusive bounties). Maybe you’ll want to come back and climb a tree..

      • Walter Nelson Yarbrough

        Don’t forget vendor gear and all that jive

    • Walter Nelson Yarbrough

      Doubt it. I think he will randomly show up on the same days

      Just more spots for him to pop up in

  • Zach

    I’m almost 100% positive that trials of Osiris will be a permanent thing because a) theres a spot on it on the crucible thing, and b) if you truly do have to win your way in that will be hard to do in just a week

    • Yep, I bet it will be too

      • Zach

        Well in the Podcast they where saying they think it’s just temporary

        • Briar had mentioned that, not sure why, but I’m pretty sure it’ll be permanent

    • Alex Howden

      another thing to note would be the fact that the exotic bounty, an unknown patron, is obtained like ever over exotic bounty, does this mean I only have 1 week ever MONTH to try and get a fate of all fools? I really don’t think people would be happy at that idea. So it would have to be permanent or the bounty itself would have to be obtained differently to everything else

  • DJsuns

    Did you guys read the drag a drop inventory management update coming this Monday? This would be cool in the mobile app

  • Bok Choy

    Great! A new ball to just kick over the ledge! No one gets to play with the ball when I’m in the tower! Mwahahaha!

  • Garrisjones

    I wonder if the reef will have its own cryptarch. I don’t think we’ll have a postmaster or special orders vendor. we’ll probably have a person to give out bounties. could we possibly have new faction besides the queen. I kinda feel like the reef won’t be this big place to explore since he said we still will have to visit the tower I was hoping to make the reef my Home spot.

    • Kenshiro Genjuro

      Yeah I agree with this. Although I would love a nice big area to stroll around, I’m expecting it to be pretty humble in scale compared to the Tower. There certainly aren’t going to be many vendors when there’s only going to be a set of armor and a set of weapons. Then another person with bounties. No need for a gunsmith when we already don’t use the one we have. Conceivably they could have their own postmaster but who knows.
