Destiny 1.2.0 Patch Released, House Of Wolves Will Launch On Time

That was a close one, but everything’s cool now. Bungie managed to fix the unspecified nasty bug in the latest Destiny patch and has sent out a correction. This paves the way for the House of Wolves DLC to be applied with no issues. Now you’ll be able to thrash around in the House of Elders as scheduled.
But the patch does some other things as well. The Commendations system has been eliminated, and any leftover commendations you have can be converted into +250 reputations gains in the Vanguard, Crucible, or Faction clans. Vendor items will now be visible on the Destiny mobile app, so if you want to know what Xur is selling, you no longer have to load up the actual game first.
And there’s still a small issue: the Cryptarch won’t recognize some legendary Engrams under the current patch; they’ll be turned into Shards if brought forth. It’s recommended that all Guardians hang onto their purple Engrams until the DLC launches, which will come with its own patch, 1.2.0.1.
See the patch notes below for all the details.

Weapons

  • Fixed an issue in which Vex Mythoclast was not respawning with primary ammunition
  • Fixed an issue with the Hive Disruptor perk, which now appears in the Black Hammer perk set again
  • Fixed an issue in which the Phantom Gift and White Nail perks would become interrupted when non-precision damage occurred from other perks
    • Bonus damage from other perks (e.g., Explosive Rounds, Hive Disruptor) no longer interrupts the count
    • Three precision hits within the time window will trigger the intended refund bonus
  • Fixed an issue in which the Hive Disruptor perk did not work correctly with sustained damage events (auto rifles, pulse, etc.)
    • Oracle Disruptor perk now triggers more often
    • Hive Disruptor perk now triggers more often, but does less damage per event

  • Vendor Interaction Panel now has better animations and fewer popping issues

    • The quality indicators should now always correctly reflect a user’s live connection quality

*Addendum

  • We have discovered that Legendary Engrams will drop in 1.2.0 that the Cryptarchs will not recognize
  • Hold on to all newly-acquired purple Engrams until May 19th to benefit from their upgraded decryption skillset
