Destiny Update – 17/09/15

The Taken King has arrived and Bungie seems just as excited as the legions of fans. What’s the latest in their update this week? Check it out below.

Of Gods and Kings

Facing Oryx was never the end…

Yep, The Taken King‘s Fall Raid is now available. Here’s the teaser trailer in case you missed it.

Of Odds and Bling

Xûr’s got a brand new bag.

The mysterious vendor will be stocking differently in Destiny Year Two, as we noted in yesterday’s Xûr update. In case clicking a link is just too much effort after all that Raiding (don’t worry, we understand), here’s Senior Design Lead Tyson Green once more explaining the changes.

In Year One, Xûr was a community “loot drop,” a shared rallying point that everyone could cheer or curse. In Year Two, Xûr’s offerings have been changed so that he will select either a specific Exotic Weapon or an Exotic Engram for sale every week. This change is due primarily to our desire to give players more direct paths to acquiring the Exotics they want through Quests and gameplay experiences, and to avoid repetition in his inventory.

Xûr will also sell a new consumable, the Three of Coins, which gives bosses a chance to drop Exotic Engrams, including Weapon Engrams. These consumables have a cumulative luck effect, so even if one doesn’t net you a drop, the next one has a higher chance to do so.

Lastly, Xûr will also choose a Legacy Engram every week. These Engrams contain Year One Exotics (at Year One Attack and Defense levels) for players who want to finish up a Collection. They strongly bias towards Exotics not already in your Blueprint Collection, to help fill in the blank slots – excluding Mythoclast and Necrochasm, which are still only available from their Year One sources.”
Response Time is a Factor
As before, the Help forum is the number one place for getting help with issues that prevent you playing Destiny. That’s technical issues, mind, not that your partner/child/overly friendly neighbour is using the TV and simply won’t let you on. If Bungie can help those forums are the best place to make a post.
