Welcome to Downright Kick, the Let's Play channel with @Ronan, @ThefighterofFoo and @Switch! Now you can pretend you're sat next to us, watching us play games like total scrubs from the comfort of your own home!
The patch finally fixes some of the exotic weapons and their balancing within the game (making a notable few a lot more useful).
It also makes it possible to purchase upgrade materials from vendors in the Tower and changes the way that exotic armour upgrades work.
It might be worth noting that Bungle plz have also fixed some issues with the Raid that were introduced with the previous patch.
Bungle plz have announced a bit more info on the first DLC for Destiny.
- New Tower character to grab missions from.
- Level cap raised to 32.
- New weapons, armour and gear.
- New Exotics.
- Five extra slots for bounties.
- Three new Crucible maps.
- New Earth Strike (vs. Hive).
- Brand new Moon Raid (vs. Hive).
Destiny's Crucible gets a limited event this week with The Iron Banner - a 6v6 Crucible playlist where all level advantages are enabled and damage is no longer normalised between players.
Waving goodbye to The Queen's Emissary, we welcome Lord Saladin (whom some of you will remember from the Beta) selling Emblems, Shaders, Class Items and Legendary Weapons.
Much like the Vanguard Sellers and Queen's Emissary before him, you will need to 'Rank Up' with Saladin in order to get access to his finer wares - this is done via completing Iron Banner bounties.
Hopefully this actually turns out to be fun and we don't get completely trashed every single game.
At 2:00 AM Pacific on Tuesday, September 16th, the Raid will accept challengers in Destiny. That’s 9:00 AM GMT.
That's also now.
There is a Level 26 requirement before anyone can even attempt the raid and by the sounds of things, it could get pretty hairy in there. Bungie are recommending a well-balanced and varied loadout across your entire fireteam (sounds like a lot of Rock/Paper/Scissors shielded enemies, then).
Progress through the raid is saved for up to one week, based on the fireteam leader at the time. So guardians will have to follow the same leader into battle to resume where they left off.
