What Is in Your Destiny? – October 4th, 2017

News

Guardians, I welcome you to see What Is in Your Destiny! This weekly report will give a brief rundown on what communique has been received from the Vanguard leadership over at Bungie.

Let’s first welcome our new overlords, Dead Orbit. For those who had been living on IO for the past week, let me recap what has transpired.


Other Guardians, like you and I, were tasked with returning faction items to the representatives of three longstanding factions; Dead Orbit, the Future War Cult, and New Monarchy. The faction who had the best representation – quantity over quality here, I am afraid – would be rewarded with a huge discount on a specific weapon, in the case of Dead Orbit, a Scout Rifle. I am sure I heard Shaxx shouting about the rifle, one phrase I picked up…. DISAPPOINTING, GUARDIANS. Anyways, I am not here to imprint my beliefs on you, no matter how much we need to prepare for any future wars.

I’ll see you in orbit, Guardians.

PS: This just in!

1.0.3.1 The one with more post-launch housekeeping.

Items
Fixed an issue in which players could lose access to the Veteran’s Transmat Effect by deleting characters
Fixed an issue in which clan engrams would grant Trials of the Nine and raid rewards at only 10 Power
Fixed an issue in which the action button on Faction Rallies emblems displayed Discard instead of Store

Quests
Fixed an issue in which progress for the Exotic Quest Step “His Highness’s Seal” was not incrementing properly

Raid
Fixed an issue in which raid milestones would not show for some players after the weekly reset (This didn’t affect any raid rewards)
Fixed an issue in which players could enter a state where they are continuously killed if they finish a raid encounter at the exact moment of failure

Crucible
Added invisible physics and kill volumes to keep players inside the intended playable area on the following maps:
Eternity
Altar of Flame
Emperor’s Respite
Legion’s Gulch
Javelin-4
The Dead Cliffs
Added invisible physics to all stairs in The Dead Cliffs to allow grenades to bounce properly
Adjusted spawning system values to reduce the frequency of players respawning into dangerous situations on all maps

If any of these issues aren’t fully resolved, please allow the next weekly reset to come and pass to see if they are on delay.

I am a father, a husband and a spartan. I started out gaming as a blue hedgehog, then I traded in my racing shoes for a gender-neutral space suit. From there it was a blur, I lived through fantasies that were not so final, landed on universe ending rings, and more recently I have defended Azeroth from Orcs. Lots. Of. Orcs. Oh, also, whose foot prints are these?
