New Things to Earn - Bungie Stream

Bungie's second April update stream was today. Here is what I can remember from the stream:

  • New armor pieces for each of the three factions
  • New Taken armor set - with it's own "taken twitch" emote once all the pieces are collected
  • New Armor set designed around a new Chroma system
  • The Taken armor and Chroma set can be acquired from Sterling Treasure drops
  • Each week we'll get one Sterling Treasure from the Postmaster, plus earn them from PoE and Crucible once per week; contents include one guaranteed piece of gear and then other goodies
  • Chroma system allows us to place these cool glows on our armor and weapons via a new node on the item for activating the color or changing the color; these work separately of the shaders, but can be used on all gear
  • 4 Chroma colors to collect - White, Blue, Red and Yellow
  • Infusion will now be 1:1; meaning if you infuse a 320 item into a 280 item, it will be 320 - no more baby steps!
  • Increased rep gains from all activities; ranking up factions will be much faster
  • More vault space
  • New sparrows, ships and class items will be available
  • Not a lot of talk on the new weapons we'll be getting, but they did show some of the favorites from Year 1 factions will be brought back for Y2; no mention of Y1 Raid weapons
  • They did not talk about exotic gear at all, so no hints on if we'll be getting any new exotics
  • Lots of new emotes

That's about what I can remember, so it's a nice update.

Yup, probably. Gotta check out all the goods though. Might be something new I like.

Yep.  Might keep the interest up because things have really slowed down here.

I like these new goodies! Glad they're bringing back and updating Y1 Exotics to Y2 level. Disappointed with no updated Icebreaker (and Bungie better not nerf it!) and Gjallarhorn.

I'm up for Prison of Elders warm-ups a week before the update. Any interest?

I'd be up for running a bit of PoE

I've been doing a little here and there of it. I have never ran the level 35 one.

I'm sort of going to avoid PoE. I figure, why burn myself out on it before the new stuff comes out.

Yeah, eff Quodron and that Certurion boss with the shields that change - I hate those guys.

It'll be a new experience without Vision of Confluence, Fatebringer and Fang of Ir Yut...

So...so...disappointed about our already acquired year one guns not being brought forward....

And that is why they are not. People are so attached to them that they will never try out the new gear. We would all still be using Ice Breaker and G. Horn if they were not useless.

I'm looking forward to playing some more PoE! I've only downed Skolas one time, and it was an ordeal. Was just starting to be ok-ish on PoE in general (never mind Skolas), when it stopped being worthwhile. Not sure when I'll jump back in, though.

Getting high light levels should be simplified:

Engrams guaranteed to grant an item with Light value higher than your total Light​ (up to whatever the cap is, 335 exotic, 320 legendary)
