The reef looked awesome

here is what we know so far


- Domain of Queen and The Awoken.
- “House of Wolves” once controlled by the queen. It has rebelled.
- Spread out into the galaxy, causing mayhem. The Reef needs you.

Vendors, gear and items

- Petra, Queen’s Wrath vendor, now in the reef.
- Main story agent.
- Bounties, shaders, emblems, ship[url=http://i.imgur.com/3uREegv.png ]“Ceres Galliot”[/url].
- “Long range ships designed to patrol the reef…”
- Reef itself as once revealed, was an early prototype space, “rebuilt up from scratch."
- More story lore? – Petra is the story agent, series of quests, “wanted to make a really fun story to hunt down the house of wolves.”
- Full set of Queen’s Wrath armor and weapons obtainable in Prison of Elders.
- “House Of Judgement” Variks – Warden of Prison of Elders.
- Very old house of the fallen…Variks one of the only known remaining.
- Variks runs the Prison of Elders.
- "Judgement’s Chance" – acquires Prison of Elder’s awards.
- "Wolfslayer’s Claw" – 365 attack, decent impact (not pee shooter).
- "Kellbreaker’s gloves" – Warlock.
- Ships and Shaders.
- Different awards each week = rotation.
- Weekly reset integrated.
- Secrets awaiting in the prison of elders ;)
- “Iron Banner style” of gear collection – pattern, diversity, variety.
- Queen’s Guard – "set pieces" – stand attention to you.
- Brother Vance: Disciple of Osiris.
- Vance – used for rewards and passages for trials of Osiris.
- Rewards, supplies, passages. Runs every weekend until the reset.
- Reef artstyle, dangerous place, somewhat industrial “in ruin”
- “Bounty outlaw” feel.

Basic General Info

- Duplicate vault, postmaster, bounty tracker. . .regular essential items found in the tower.
- Prison of Elders – glorified horde system? No “challenging experience."
- Weekly Change every time you play either Trials of Osiris or Prison of Elders.
- Xur will arrive, will have a bunch of stuff, you will have a choice of what to buy.
- All guardians are welcome to the reef.
- Hive Disruptor possible fix.
- No new ghost shells as of yet.

New Tower Information

- Bounty, The Hunt For Skolas – HoW bounty.
- Speaker will exchange materials for glimmer and visa versa.
- Simplified Economy.
- Vendors will have new armor and new weapons.
- New perks/designs.
- Level 33, Level 34, upgrades…
- Dark Below items, Launch Day items, “Ascend legendary items with Etheric Light”
- Obtained through Nightfall, Trials of Osiris, House of Wolves.
- Immediately upgrades to 365 (Legendary – Etheric light, Exotic – needs exotic shard).
- Does not reset progression.

- Unlock Prison of Elders through completing DLC story.
- No longer a need to upgrade Exotic weapons through Xur.
- Xur will still be useful y supplying exotic shards.
- “Reforge” HoW weapons and other new weapons – can acquire many reforges as one desires, requires Motes of Light.
- Gunsmith has weapon telemetries now.

Looks like a step in the right direction.  Waiting to watch it on youtube after work.  Re-rolling weapons gives a reason to buy some of the vendor stuff that I would never have bought because of the crappy perks or to not instantly break down crappy gear that we get from vanguard/crucible/faction packages.  Take a chance to see if they can get a better roll.  I would have preferred being able to craft gear to my liking, but re-rolling will do.

I read somewhere re-rolling is only for new HoW items.  We'll see...

Re-rolling only impacts new HoW weapons, not old weapons.  You can upgrade old weapons to the new attach value but can't re-roll the perks. Not really a big deal, if you've gotten a crap roll on a weapon prior to HoW you probably already dismantled it for energy anyway.

I was pretty happy about the changes to the economy.  I also liked that they went out of their way to make some new models.

I'm also pretty happy I don't have to where that dumb ruffled collar on my warlock anymore

If you listen to Eris, she says things like "I don't know what to do anymore." and other related statements indicating she's no longer needed - since you killed Crota. She also says there will be other challenges coming.

It's sneaky. Like a table between postmaster and bounty board.

Thanks, good to know. I couldn't find it and I spent a fair bit of time there collecting Ghosts.

I thought the Reef vaults looked like a couple of old vending machines whose contents are way past the expiration date.

I really dig what they are doing with the new armor & weapons now. They don't need Ascendant materials to upgrade anymore, and you get full damage/defense from jump. You just use the experience to unlock the abilities of said armor/weapon.

But my question though....what the hell are we supposed to do to get ascendant materials now? New HoW purple items don't break down to ascendant materials supposedly. I'd like to keep and "ascend" all of my purple armor so far to the highest level possible because hell...I did the work to upgrade it all. And some of my armor is spiffy looking. With the speaker you need energy to exchange for shards and vice versa.....so.....useless if you don't have any ascendant materials at all to begin with.

I finished 10 different events while on patrol and only got the planet-based materials, no ascendant stuff. And I don't want to break down all my legendary armor/weapons. I spent time grinding to upgrade it all and I'd like to keep them.

What I don't like....is the fact that when the new updates roll out, all the vendors stock changes completely. Why not just have them cycle through different inventory sets like the bounty board does? They can upgrade all the armor/weapons that have been sold so far to be the same as the newest armor. That way we have more variety to choose from armor-wise instead of 2 of each piece. It just seems like all that stuff disappears into oblivion when the updates drop.

You can get ascendant materials by running VoG and by doing the daily chapter
