Over the past year, Bungie has made a handful of iterative improvements to the player’s quest experience. Early on, these improvements focused on helping players understand their quests when viewed together.
Most recently, Bungie added the Quest Details screen (view image above). This new screen allows you to dive into the details of each quest, which should help you:
- Take in the narrative context and visual themes of the quest.
- Understand what the quest is asking you to do, and what you’ve done already.
- Get a better look at the rewards for completing the quest.
Taken together, Bungie is hoping you feel more knowledgeable and motivated about the quests in your log. You can access the following screen by hovering your cursor over a given quest and using the Inspect command.
Bungie is excited to build on the Quest Detail screen in future updates with more improvements to the quest experience.
And now, onto some general patch notes:
- Removed Hawthorne’s Red War-era dialog when completing her Clan challenge.
- Players can now turn in Gunsmith materials 100 at a time, and Vanguard tokens 20 at a time – enough to get a full rank.
- Valor, Glory, and Infamy rank-up banners are now at the bottom of the screen, no longer blocking players from taking actions in orbit when hitting a new rank.
- Valor, Glory, and Infamy values are now available on the main Director screen for the ritual.
- Reworked the mote system for more reliable gathering.
- Iron Banner
- Removed Skill Based Matchmaking listing from the Iron Banner tooltip – it has been using Connection-Based Matchmaking, along with the rest of the Crucible, since June of 2020.
- Life count changed from 6 to 4, respawn time changed from 7s to 5s, consistent with ruleset prior to Beyond Light.
- A Guardian Rises
- Destroying the Spider Tank during The Divide phase will now progress the directive by 50%.
- Fixed an issue where veteran accounts that start a new character could not be progress or dismiss some tutorials.
- Fixed an issue where players could jump through a window during the Navota vignette and block their mission progress.
- Cold Boot
- Fixed an issue for veteran characters playing the New Light quest that would cause the Legendary weapon tutorial to persist through the entire mission.
- Fixed an issue where players with full Energy weapon inventory slots would have Riskrunner sent to the Postmaster upon pick up.
- The weapon now drops as an Exotic Engram during the mission, allowing players to clear room in their inventories if they wish to pick up their Riskrunner immediately.
- Fixed an issue where players would see a “Quests Full” message when trying to start the Forsaken campaign, forcing them to find and pick up the quest at the Quest Archive in the Tower before proceeding.
All missing patch notes are being added to the Destiny 2 Update 3.1.0 article. If you haven’t taken a look at everything that’s changed this Season, stop by and give it a read!
This season, two strikes from Destiny 1 are making their entrance to Destiny 2 through the Destiny Content Vault. Bungie has a quick update on our plans for the Cosmodrome from the Development Team.
By The Bungie Dev Team: “Last summer, when we revealed our plans for the Destiny Content Vault – where we cycle out older underused content to improve our ability to evolve Destiny – we also committed to periodically unvaulting legacy content, merging some of the best that Destiny 1 and Destiny 2 has to offer. THat announcement included the reveal that the Cosmodrone would be returning, and that it would be ‘fleshed out to roughly Destiny 1 Year-1 parity’.
When we first shared our plans, we were still early in development and uncertain how far we would go with the Cosmodrome unvault. We were pretty sure it wouldn’t include the Plaguelands but what about the locations added in the Year-1 DLCs, or the awesome Colony Ship behind Sepik’s Lair with The Taken King? What about all of the public patrol spaces? How much of Cosmo would we need in order to accomplish our goals of having a great space to tell the new Guardian origin story while still giving veteran players a big dose of nostalgia via some updates to the strike playlist?
As we approached Beyond Light’s launch, it became clear to us that we had a choice to make: After returning all three of its original strikes, do we invest more time and resources in bringing Cosmodrome to D1 parity or do we switch our focus to building new experiences for Year 4 and beyond? Given that we believed we had achieved our original goals and knowing the community and team’s desire for new content, we chose the latter option. But, when we made that decision, we failed to properly update your expectations for how far the Cosmodrome experience was going to be extended and that was a mistake. So, to clear things up: With the Devil’s Lair and Fallen S.A.B.E.R. strikes returning, we don’t have any active plans to add more to the Cosmodrome than what is there will be focusing on new updates overall.
We will continue to use the Destiny Content Vault to drive variety in the live game in the future. The Cosmodrome was our first big push and later this year the Vault of Glass will return. We’ll share more later this year.”
