Bungie has a Destiny patch coming next week that will fix some bugs in Crota’s End, add some variety to the Crucible and make Vault of Glass more rewarding.
The patch fixes some buggy behavior in Crota’s End, including getting rid of a glitch or two that could be used to make it cheesier. Notably, you can’t trick the big lug into eternally kneeling by having a player disconnect any more.
Bungie says in its weekly update that this patch is far from the last tweak it will make to Crota’s End. A planned “Hard Mode” for Crota’s End is in the works.
The patch also adds some new wrinkes to the Crucible by adding Asylum, The Anomaly, and The Burning Shrine maps to the existing Clash and Control playlist. And get ready for a new Iron Banner event with that will start Jan. 13 and run through Jan. 19.
Finally, there are some better loot drops for the Vault of Glass raid, which will now drop level 32 exotic weapons.
The new patch will be ready as early as Jan. 13. Here are the full patch notes:
Crota’s End – Updates
The existing Pit treasure chest reward moved to killing Ir Yut, the Deathsinger. She has a chance to drop Exotic weapons and armor, class pieces, and Radiant materials.
The Pit treasure chest will now contain Radiant Materials.
Removed the physics impulse caused by exploding lanterns.
Players will now be required to cross the bridge in order to complete the bridge encounter.
Players will now be required to wait for the bridge to be completed prior to crossing with the sword.
Fixed a rare case where the Shriekers would not spawn, preventing players from reaching the Deathsinger.
Two Swordbearers will no longer spawn at the same time at the outset of the encounter.
Crota will now recover from his kneeling state after a player quits.
Fixed a bug that allowed players to remove the “Presence of Crota” using a Radiance Warlock’s Fireborn ability.
Fixed a bug that made the Oversoul appear destroyed to some players in a Fireteam when it was actually still active.
Vault of Glass – Updates
Exotic weapon drops in the Vault of Glass are now Level 32.
Getting Swole in the Crucible
The Raid crew wasn’t the only team readying tweaks heading into and out of the holiday season. Our Crucible designers have a few things in the works to add some spice to the early goings of 2015.
Asylum, The Anomaly, and The Burning Shrine maps will be added to existing Clash and Control playlist rotation.
Iron Banner will return, with updated rewards, running from January 13th through January 19th.
