Alas, the next update to <em>Destiny 2<\/em> which posed to launch alongside <em>Season of Dawn<\/em> is going to augment the level cap with some added tweaks to Escalation Protocol and supers, and other changes to the Eververse.\r\n\r\nFor those curious about what this new update entails, here are the patch notes:\r\n\r\n<strong>N.B.<\/strong> This is expected to take effect on the 10th of December\r\n\r\n[embed] https:\/\/www.youtube.com\/watch?v=lFc_gEds0no [\/embed]\r\n\r\n<strong>The Rewards<\/strong>\r\n\u2022 The drop rate of the \u2018Scourge of the Past\u2019 raid exotic weapon mutiny increases with a 5% difference.\r\n\u2022 Both the Fated Engram and Exotic Engram combine into single new Exotic equipment.\r\n\u2022 Players can redeem a new Exotic item once open, that's if any remains; otherwise, it will still contain a random piece.\r\n\u2022 The content didn\u2019t change as much; they\u2019re still class-specific.\r\n\r\n<strong>Pinnacle and Powerful Added Caps Bonuses<\/strong>\r\n\u2022 Pinnacle Cap: 970 increased from 960\r\n\u2022 Powerful Cap: 960 increased from 950.\r\n\r\n<strong>The Escalation Protocol<\/strong>\r\n\u2022 Now players don't need to depend on a key to open the Escalation Protocol wave 7 chest.\r\n\u2022 Now, the chest is accessible upon every successful completion of wave 7.\r\n\u2022 Each time players open the chest, a piece of Ep armor is awarded for their character class until the set is full.\r\n\u2022 Upon acquiring a full set, the next opening of the set awards a random piece of armor.\r\n\u2022 Also, the Charged Decryption Keys and Key Fragments have been excluded from the game, so this also means the items from players' stocks will no longer be available.\r\n\u2022 Still the Armory keys required to initiate Valkyrie Javelins will remain unchanged.\r\n\u2022 The E.P. weapon drops are still intact. They always act as the cumulative-stream boss drops.\r\nThe Weapon Mods\r\n\u2022 Now, players will find cost-effective slotting a weapon mod because the price has dropped from 5,000 Glimmer to 500 Glimmer.\r\n\u2022 Resolved the bug where Ada-1 could grant duplicate weapon mods\r\n\r\n<strong>The Bounties<\/strong>\r\n\u2022 Now players can have repeatable bounties added to the Gunsmith\r\n\u2022 A merged strike of \/Crucible\/Gambit objectives on the Gunsmith weekly bounty \u2018Field Calibration\u2019 into a single goal for the aim of revealing the progress from all the sources is now available.\r\n\u2022 Eradicated Valor\/Infamy and Vanguard tokens from \u2018Field Calibration\u2019 because there isn\u2019t any need for these linked proceedings.\r\n\u2022 Now there's a new mode-specific daily Crucible bounty. So players can have one per day, selected from their playlists and active rotators.\r\n\u2022 Expunged the grenade and melee bounties from the Crucible bounty repeatable pool\r\n\u2022 The required completion of several daily and repeatable Crucible bounties is now low\r\nThe Striker Code for the Missile (For Thundercrash)\r\n\u2022 The base damage of the missile went from 2,700 to 3,200\r\n\u2022 Also, the in-flight damage has gone from 100 to 200\r\n\u2022 Furthermore, the time players use on-air after activation is slightly longer.\r\n\r\n<strong>The Nightstalker Way of the Pathfinder<\/strong>\r\n\u2022 Upon vanishing into smoke: an added short period, precisely 0.8 seconds, which is after the invisibility, is applied. Where performing other actions or firing weapons will not break the invisibility.\r\n\u2022 The ability listed above will help to prevent allies from mistakenly breaking the invisibility the moment it\u2019s granted to them if unexpected.\r\n\r\n<strong>The Voidwalker Attunement of Fission<\/strong>\r\n\u2022 The charge time for the grenade adjusts to align with the animations and F.X., so the time it detonates and activates is consistent.\r\n\r\n<strong>Maps for the Crucible<\/strong>\r\n\u2022 Included \u2018rusted lands\u2019 to the right playlists\r\n\u2022 Included \u2018legion\u2019s gulch, solitude, the dead cliffs, and retribution\u2019 to the right playlists.\r\n\u2022 Included \u2018equinox, Vostok, firebase echo, and emperor\u2019s respite\u2019 from the playlists in Crucible\r\n\u2022 Also, players can utilize the maps in private matches.
