ARC WEEK

Live Now for All Players! 

Bungie’s goal for this happening has been to take the element that makes their sandbox crackle and put it under the microscope. (Click here for details)

  • The most noticeable update is that Bungie improved many Arc subclass paths from the time before Forsaken.
  • The week will feature Arc Singe and Arc Bounties to synergize with your updated abilities. To provide a proving grounds for all this new energy,
  • Mayhem will be available in the Crucible to let you experiment with your enhanced Arc abilities using shockingly short cooldowns.
  • Arc Week will also feature one of the most powerful Arc weapons ever created, the Thunderlord Exotic Machine Gun. If you weren’t able to complete the quest to obtain Thunderlord last year, you will have from April 9 to April 23 to revisit the Cosmodrome and add it your collection.
  • Three emotes will be available in bundles for direct purchase, one for each class. Now you can show off your mastery of the Arc arts even when your Super is on cooldown.

Hunter Emote

Titan Emote

Warlock Emote


ALLEGIANCE QUEST 

Live Now!

To unlock this quest, you’ll need to have completed The Drifter’s initial Gambit Prime and The Reckoning quest steps up until the point you’ve got yourself some tier 1 Gambit Prime Armour. Once you’ve done all of this, go ahead and speak to The Drifter. He’ll then give a choice between siding with him, or the Vanguard. Do pay attention to the small print when you’re making a choice, as they both have different repercussions. (via Metabomb.net)

Throughout Season of the Drifter, depending on your pledge, one of these packages will be found at Ikora or Drifter upon each weekly reset:

Vanguard Weekly Package:

  • Powerful Vanguard Gear
  • Boon of the Vanguard
  • 10 Vanguard Tactician Tokens
  • Enhancement Core

Drifter Weekly Package:

  • Powerful Gambit Gear
  • Collector Synth
  • Invader Synth
  • Sentry Synth
  • Reaper Synth
  • 100 Infamy Points

If you’re the type of player who wants it all, or you’re an all-out lore collector, you can make a different pledge on alternate characters. Just remember that your choice will last. You can either side with a slick-talking Drifter or side with those who protect the last safe city and its people. (Source: Bungie.net)
