For those unaware the pulse rifle mentioned is thought to be the community gun created by a lot of on Reddit. It sends Axion bolts out of the body of head shots. It's a Scout Rifle in design but it was likely changed a bit after Cozmo sent it to weapons team. It's appearance will likely be different too so it's SIVA'd out. Here's hoping the community influenced the game :) https://m.reddit.com/r/DestinyTheGame/comments/3x39hs/community_exotic_f...

Sweet!

Prepare your bodies for the latest ViDoc showing lots of new stuff: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-ZHfL03mU90

Some of that new armor and the ornaments look amazing!

​Private Matches are coming to the Crucible - now we can shoot at each other...lol

4 new Crucible maps = 3 for both systems plus one PS4 exclusive.

The also played two matches on two new maps featuring the new Supremacy game mode. Lots of fun!

Here is a nice set of screen caps from the ViDoc somebody posted on Reddit: http://imgur.com/a/PuX5b

Overall, some really badass looking armor - looks like I'll be forced into getting slaughtered in Trials so I can have a Cobra Commander Warlock and Master Chief Titan...lol

Seems Bungie has give us plenty to grind for in RoI. I guess I can start cleaning out all of this old stuff from my Vault, because this RoI gear looks amazing. I'm still keeping my VoG gear though - that stuff is still boss!

I read in one of those Destiny Reddit threads that if you keep unopened blue and purple drops in the vault until RoI comes out and then you get them opened as brand new RoI gears or weapons. They said same thing happened when TTK came out and their Y1 drops became Y2 gears/weapons. Is this accurate?

We will know for sure in 5 weeks... Hope this is true for exotics too.

Did not happen for random and legendary engrams but did for exotic engrams when we went to TTK.

A discussion on Reddit says that engrams will only decrypt into items from the expansion you got them from. Thus the only use for stockpiling engrams would be to level up the Cryptarch to get legendary engrams for RoI, which then can decode to higher light level stuff.

Again, guess we will have to wait and see if/what Bungle says about this. I hope that Reddit discussion is wrong.

I'm trying to remember how things worked in the past expansions and it seemed in line with what Achy and Blam mentioned. The exotics could decrypt into higher light or new gear, but the rare and legendary engrams stayed as part of the previous expansion. 

When TTK came out, I didn't decrypt all of my exotic engrams right away and would only decrypt a few at a time as I increased my light with other items. This way, I didn't blow through all of my exotics and get low light items.

I don't really need anything at this point anyway, so I might as well start saving at least the Legendary and Exotic engrams. If nothing else, to do as Blam mentioned and get a quick Cryptarch level or two.

I made the mistake of buying my youngest Little Big Planet 3 and haven't touched my PS4 in weeks... but I'm looking forward to this! Here's hoping he finds something new before then. haha

Has anyone heard about the status of Iron Banner when RoI drops?

Someone told me yesterday that there won't be another IB before RoI, and that the bounties are being changed up. So I'm wondering if the current bounties will carry over for IB rep.

I haven't seen anything on this, but I was told that this had been "confirmed". Can anyone shed any lignt on this?

I'm not 100% certain we'll see another IB before RoI. I'm leaning more toward "no". I'm thinking the IB after RoI launches will feature the new Supremacy mode, so Bungie may hold off on IB until after RoI launches. 

There has also been mention that some of the bounties will be changing - example, no longer requiring "top overall score" - but I'm not sure how this will impact any old bounties you've saved.

That being said, I usually have at least one weekly bounty saved for one or two characters, so I'll just keep them to see what happens. I don't see why they would no longer give rep, especially since Bungie wants to make it easier to rank-up in IB.

The rumour about the temporary closing of the Tower is incorrect.

I thought I read/heard somewhere that infusing an Exotic into an Exotic was now supposed to not require a shard?  If so, that hasn't been implemented yet.

Yes you have the IRON gjallahorn pre ordered it's just the skin. You actually have to complete the quest to get the weapon. The gjallarhorn isn't exclusive to pre orders it's just the iron weapon skin that makes it black and silver. :) I got the weapon last night it's still as fun as before.

Yep, I got the Y3 Iron Gjally when I started RoI. At first, I thought the item would need just infusing with another 338 heavy I got from a blue drop, so I did. But I still need to complete the quest. So I did.

Instead of one new Gjallarhorn, I got two! One a 350 Gjallarhorn and other a 338 Iron Gjallarhorn (one in black). Huh.

Hmm, looks like I may not get the kick I wanted out of Exotic Engrams after LL 350.

Quote:

Update @Cozmo23 has responded with the following and has confirmed it's not a bug, but rather a middle ground the designers intended.

"As stated in the Patch Notes once you hit 350 Light you are going to have a 50% chance to get +1 Light items. So you are right, it's not optimal to sit at the Cryptarch solely decrypting Engrams. I talked with the Designers and they wanted to find a balance between letting you progress using your stored up Engrams, while also encouraging you to go play Activities to earn better gear. Go run some Strikes, play Supremacy, and check out Archon’s Forge to increase your Light."

Yeah that sucks, but it makes sense so people aren't max Light on day one. I'm glad I also focused more on storing up my Legendary engrams so can can decrypt and get marks. I'll slowly work my way through my stack of Legendary engrams and then focus on the Exotics. 

Also, as we've surely discovered, but I'll put this out there in writing - stored engrams, both Legendary and Exotic, are decrypting to the new gear and higher light levels.

I finally made it to the top of Felwinter's Peak last night after about 20 minutes of jumping and falling. There is a reason to make it to the top (other than the amazing view), so I won't spoil what you find. 

I'm not talking about the area where you find the NPC, I'm talking about the spot behind the bounty board where you can jump up the rocks. You'll know you've made it to the top when you find the "campfire", so make sure you look around when you get there. 

So, there is a reason you saw so many people jumping around in the mountains last night...lol

Couldn't figure out why I couldn't jump up there, and then remembered the obvious. Max your agility, get out your Mida, and you'll be at the top in a jiffy.

Climbed the mountain last night. Also threw my controller a few times and lots of swearing at Biggie. On another note got my G.horn last night.
