Opinion/Comment about Destiny Update 2.4.0

Obviously the 12.64 GB update of Destiny 2.4 included good chunks of Rise of Iron contents:

https://www.bungie.net/en/News/Article/45172/7_Destiny-Update-090816

I see the new Plaguelands map adjoining the Cosmodrome map in Old Russia, Earth. It is, of course, not accessible until Sept. 20.

I like the new color schemes - cleaner and more crisper colors. Cosmetics-wise, the UI looks slightly new.

Cannot wait for the Rise of Iron to come out on the 20th!

Few bugs they need to fix, but I think the clan list is going to be really helpful.

Is anybody here actually in charge of the 2o2p Destiny clan and keeping it current? I tried for the longest time to get in but never could because it was full.

I quit the clan because I couldn't stand the mis-spelling.

I doubt the clan feature will enhance our customs one little bit. Bungie as much as said so.

Yes, after I quit the clan. I'm not bothering to re-join it or any other clan/club. It serves me no purpose and it's not managed consistently. I'll think about it going forward if conditions change.

Decrypted an Exotic engram?  I am going to try that today.  Also an ROI sidearm may drop went decrypting a special weapon exotic engram.  Going to try that as well.

I decrypted one engram for infusion into a sniper rifle I wanted to test. 335

I think I'll leave further testing to others.

Thanks for the info Adam. Exotic boots from a hoarded engram came in at 337 for me.

Got 338 Stand Asides from a stored engram. Seems to be only boots and the sidearm dropping. I'll wait until 3oC gives me a special engram before trying for that sidearm.

Ran a hard mode in KF Raid last night with my usual deaf team for my Hunter char for that last calcified fragment (the Oryx one).

Had three players as Titan with ToM and Defender bubble. Reported ToM is still buffed by Blessing of Light perk on.

We got Oryx last night and I raked some sweet loot - lot of 334-5 primary rifles. A player on my team got 4 exotic engrams! Lucky boy.

On this Tuesday (the 13th), this might be the last week for KF Raid as a weekly raid, so once Rise of Iron arrives on the 20th, the WotM replaces the weekly KF Raid.

I wouldn't be in too much of a hurry to decrypt those boot engrams because on the 20th we'll be getting Rare and Legendary gear that will easily raise our light. I'll probably hold most of my Legendary/Exotic engrams that I have in the vault until just before we run the new Raid on Friday.

I'll keep running 3oCs and decrypting special weapon engrams for a chance at the new sidearm. Everything else gets stored until RoI. I don't have quite as many engrams stored as DEEP, but I have quite a few.

I decrypted one special weapon and one set of boots.  No sidearm, but a 335 Patience and Time, which I didn't have.  The boots decrypted at 337.  3ofC still dropping exotic engrams, but I think I will use them much more sparingly until the 20th.

Turned in 1 exotic special the other day and got a 334 Trespasser sidearm. I've been liking it a lot! It's a burst fire pistol.

Seems a couple of "newer" problems have popped up with the patch --

Control jump behavior for Titan jumping has changed a bit, seems now to be closer to height jumping ability while maintaining control functionality.  More of a problem for the try hards in crucible I think based on the complaints I have seen in the forums.  It appears that the extended "float" when they are "trick" jumping makes the jump slow down and them more vulnerable.  Boohoo.  I was running control on my Titan last night in the raid and didn't notice any changes in the puzzle jumping (other than I didn't die), but did run the platforms at the Sisters in record time for me and it wasn't because of any sudden increase in ability!!

It appears the Agonarch rune is not charging properly.  Lots of complaints from players saying their rune is stuck at 6/7 or generally won't charge. 

Other than that the major issues out there are: multiple players on the same wireless LAN not being able to join each other, mostly on the PS4 but also reported on the XBONE and the continued no error code kick back to orbit -- You have left your fireteam and have been returned to orbit.  I asked Bungie what that meant in the help forum and got, you guessed it, no response.

Update:

Bungie just announced that this Monday (9/19) on or around 1 PM Eastern there will be two hot fixes (2.4.0.1 and 2.4.0.2) "available" for download and installation.  All players in a fire team must have installed the fixes to be able to play together.  The help article did not mention what was being fixed.

I noticed the Titan jump change myself, and it threw me off quite a bit at the beginning. The slower, steeper rise makes my Titan skate slower, so I don't like it. I also thought I noticed some other changes, namely in the raid pulse primary, which is the main primary I use. My aim was off, and I'm not entirely sure why. I can't see anything in the patch notes that would indicate a relevant change.

The Titan Solar Sunspots were very opaque last night. Is was very difficult to see through at times. I'm not stopping using it. If someone doesn't like it, they can blast Bungie. I certainly am.

The weekly update article had a bit about what the hotfixes were going to fix.

In preparation for Destiny: Rise of Iron, we will be deploying Hotfix 2.4.0.1 and Hotfix 2.4.0.2 on Monday September 19th, 2016. These updates, deployed simultaneously, will address the following issues:
  • Film Grain issues introduced in Update 2.4.0
  • Issues impacting Revive Timers
  • Quest Tracking on some Vendors, Cosmodrome, and Mars
  • Volume issues impacting some lines from Lord Shaxx in the Crucible
 
Information concerning the release times Hotfix 2.4.0.1 and Hotfix 2.4.0.2 will be announced via @BungieHelp. Once deployed, additional patch notes will also be posted here.

Interestingly, it seems the Titan control jump changes were unintended. I'd like to think that there is hope for a reversal.
