Info from the Bungie blog: This competitive event will allow you to advance any Iron Banner quest steps you didn’t finish earlier in the season. If you missed the first Iron Banner of Opulence, this is your chance to kick off the quest and earn that singular gear. Full details on how Iron Banner is being run this season are documented here. We did get some feedback on this quest and have some changes lined up, but they didn’t make it in time for this Iron Banner. We’ll give you the details before the next one starts up.
This will be the last Iron Banner before we deploy an update to Lord of Wolves. As Luke mentioned last month, anyone who plays during these two Iron Banners will receive a special Triumph and emblem to commemorate that you were there when the wolves ran wild.
Arrives: Friday, Jul 26 @ 10 AM PT
Departs: Tuesday, Jul 30 @ 10 AM PT
Check back on Friday’s for Xûr’s Inventory and Location.

Note: Now that I have a PC capable of gaming, I am making/setting up different accounts and figured I would share my Steam and Discord (Kyber3000#9307), for other accounts I usually will try to use the same name Kyber3000 or Kyber. Please keep in mind I am very new to Discord (even though I have had an account for some time) so it is gonna take me some time to learn how everything works but I will be using it regularly very soon and hope to see you all there! 🙂
See you star side ♥
