Summary:
With this patch, we address some widely-discussed concerns with how Engrams are earned and claimed. Strikes have become more rewarding, and the rewards gained from them are more predictable. Also affected is the rotation of maps that appear in the Crucible.

Cryptarch

  • Legendary (purple) engrams will always produce a Legendary quality item or higher
    • Note: Legendary engrams that exist in your inventory will change to Rare quality items when the patch is applied. However, decoding these engrams will still produce the same results as before
  • Rare (blue) engrams will always produce a Rare quality item or higher
    • Chance for Legendary gear increased
  • Materials: Ascendant Shards and Ascendant Energy promoted to Legendary quality (from Rare quality)

Rewards

  • Rare (Blue) and Legendary (Purple) Engram drops added to the potential rewards for:
    • Vanguard: Tiger Strike Playlist
    • Daily Heroic Missions (first time per day)
    • Weekly Heroic Missions (first time per week)
  • Known issues
    • When selecting a higher difficulty for daily missions, XP Bonus not show in the reward display
    • You will still get the XP bonus, you just won't see it in the UI

Crucible

  • Reduced time limit on Bastion and First Light in Control and Clash from 15 to 12 minutes, bringing them in line with non-vehicle maps in those playlists
  • Lowered weighting on Bastion and First Light in Control and Clash so they appear less often in those playlists

I suspect that won't be free.

So trade it in.



Good update. Thanks bungie. Unfortunately, it might be a little too late for me. I've kinda moved on from Destiny for awhile. Forza Horizon 2 will have my attention for awhile. I might go back in a few weeks before I start Sunset Overdrive. Its nice to know its fixed though.

Traid it if you don't like.

BTW the story can be read on the Grimories... it is a cool universe... the Raid's story is really good too.

Shouldn't a game's story be, you know, in the game? I don't think a giant encyclopedia counts. 



Sigs are dumb. And so are you!

I agree the grimories needs to be ingame.

The Raid's story is ingame for example... it was told you in the weapons you get from rewards... it is a cool way to know the story.

That is the point in Destiny... you need to discover the story... you are in a world that you will live and learn/discovery the story of it world playing each day.

The grimories are like books of the world's story... like real world.



Good update. I haven't actually got any legendary engrams yet, but at least now I know that when I do they will actually be legendary stuff



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702
