So far the Drifter has received a lot of support. The question still remains: Should he be trusted?


INVITATIONS OF THE NINE

To begin, you’ll need to track down Xûr (Fri – Mon). In addition to his Exotic inventory, he’ll also offer a quest item for you to complete each week, for up to nine weeks. Each week you engage, you’ll be invited to learn more about the Nine and unlock lore pages to dive deeper into their story.

IRON BANNER

Returns: Tuesday, March 26 @ 10 AM Pacific

Ends: Tuesday, April 03 @ 10 AM Pacific

This season, Lord Saladin has a few new tricks up his ironclad sleeve. Bungis is introducing two new consumable items that will change the flow of combat through temporary Power level adjustments.

Iron Burden: The Iron Burden consumable is for the best of the best to challenge themselves by lowering their Power by 100, putting more focus on skill, strategy, and gunplay. With greater risk comes greater reward. For the brave, Saladin will be offering the Iron Burden consumable for purchase with 5 Iron Banner Tokens. There will be a new Triumph you can complete this Season by defeating 500 opponents while the Iron Burden debuff is active. Completing it will reward you with an updated version of Wizened Rebuke that is fully Masterworked and has a curated roll. You don’t have to complete this during the first event. Your progress will carry over to the next Iron Banner.

Wolf’s Favor: For those of you who find yourselves in PvE activities more frequently, the Wolf’s Favor consumable has been added as an invitation to try your hand in the Iron Banner. These consumables, which will drop with limited availability, grant a temporary 100 Power increase, up to a cap of 700, for 30 minutes. Our goal here is to help those who don’t normally play Crucible take a step in to the action. The Wolf’s Favor consumable has a chance to drop from completing the following daily and weekly challenges:

  • Daily Heroic story mission
  • Vanguard strikes
  • Nightfall
  • Flashpoints
  • Gambit (Forsaken only)
  • Weekly milestones from Ikora and Hawthorne

Reward Updates

Bounties have been updated to provide more choice and address feedback from previous Seasons over how long it took to earn progress toward various objectives. Each bounty will grant a powerful reward upon completion. Additionally, completion of a bounty will unlock the ability to direct purchase specific rewards from Lord Saladin. Saladin will also offer a new emblem you can pick up after completing all the weekly bounties called the Weight of Guilt. It will track higher-Power opponents defeated while under the effects of The Iron Burden. Bungie has also added an updated version of Orewing’s Maul with random rolls that will drop from match completion and from token packages.
