With the release of Destiny’s latest expansion, Rise of Iron, imminent it stands to reason that there would be a whole host of information flooding out from the Darkness into the Light (zero apologies for that gag) and we have yet more information for you today.
It would seem that Destiny reputation boosters will soon be available from Tess Everis via the Eververse Trading Company at her stall in the Tower or mini kiosk in the Reef.
These boosters will come in three forms; House of Judgement, Crucible and Vanguard. These will be, on the surface, exactly the same as the reputation already available in game (generally found in Sterling Packages). The difference being that should they wish a player can now spend real world money on these reputation boosters.
Of course this opens up a whole can of worms in the form of “Are these pay to win Micro-transactions? Something Bungie promised we’d never see in Destiny” but that’s a different discussion for a different day and one that we won’t elaborate on here.
Don’t worry though if you don’t want to spend real world money on reputation boosters they can still be earned via Radiant Treasures, which we know are Rise of Iron’s replacements for Sterling Treasures. We know the sure fire ways to get your mitts on these will be Heroic Strike Playlists and purchasing them via Eververse, there may yet be other ways to earn them though which Bungie are still to reveal.
As well as the new way to acquire reputation booster, Tess will also add some new dances to her inventory. These include Winded, Shadow Boxing, the Toe Tap and the basketball inspired Jump Shot in the rare category. There will also be new premium Legendary emotes available to purchase including Trotting Dance, Challenging Dance and Wiggly Leg Dance.
Will you be investing real world cash into these reputation boosters and emotes? Or will you hold out to gain the old fashioned Destiny way, painful, monotonous and yet strangely addictive grinding? Let us know your thoughts on this news in the comments.
