Posted on August 27, 2015 by Ward-47

Listen to this Article:

From the latest Weekly Update by Bungie, we get more details on what to expect after completing the main story of The Taken King, a schedule event at Pax Prime, and details on how much storage you need for your preferred platform.  The update kicks off with a recap of what Bungie showed off this week during a stream, and if you want to avoid any potential spoilers, be sure to skip the video below.

Of course, that is not all Bungie will be showing at this point, but in the next stream, we’ll be getting more details on the Court of Oryx next.  So be sure to check it out when it goes live at http://www.twitch.tv/bungie.



Moving on, when you finish the story mode in The Taken King, there will be a variety of activities to do when it comes to doing patrol missions, Strikes, PvP, and Nightfall.  With the second year of Destiny closing in, Weekly Nightfalls will be more than just Strikes for players to complete once a week, it will also include PvP as well.  Along with this aspect coming, Bungie will also be placing “a buff” which will do as follows

  • Requirement to be at level 40
  • wiping no longer returns fireteams to Orbit
  • Raids will now use a 30 second time-out penalty on down players (just like in the Raid missions on Normal)


Weekly Heroic Strike

This Fall, the dedicated Weekly Heroic Strike will be removed from Destiny.  In result, it will be replaced with a new playlist called “the Vanguard Heroic Playlist.”

From the Weekly Heroic Playlist, players will receive bonus Legendary Marks, and these rewards will be earned from account level instead of character level.  Of course, this change has been made so that way, players won’t feel pressured to focus on more than one character, so that way it will be more convenient for them to focus on one character they prefer to play as.



Weekly PVP Ritual

In this mode, players will receive a weekly bounty from Lord Shaxx called “The True meaning of War” which requires completing pvp weeklies, and will grant players tier rewards on doing so.



Pax Prime


Speaking of all this Destiny content that has been thrown at us from this Weekly, it looks like Bungie will also be present at Pax Prime in Seattle this weekend for a community meeting at Guardian regalia.  It will be located outside near the sculpture garden on the upper decks of the convention center at 3:00 PM on Saturday.
