DESTINY UPDATE 3.4.0.1

ACTIVITIES 

Trials of Osiris

  • Fixed an issue where players were not placed into the Flawless matchmaking pool upon achieving a Flawless passage.

Grasp of Avarice

  • Fixed an issue where Grisprax’s faction icon would not appear.
  • Fixed reward lockouts so each encounter can be looted for rerolls an unlimited amount of times per week, as intended. New items from the loot pool and Power are gated to once per week, per class.  
  • Fixed activity crash in Sunken Lair encounter when killing Servitors. 
  • Prevented bad bread-crumbing causing players to get stuck in crystal pit after dropping down from the Loot Cave.
  • Players can no longer continue to generate cursed engrams during DPS.  
  • Fixed issue with Servitor bombs sometimes disappearing without explosion VFX when the timer runs out. 
  • Fixed falsely advertised Weekly challenge pinnacle reward displayed when switching between classes and creating new characters.
  • Fixed combatants that did not despawn in Ogre and Loot Cave encounters. 
  • Fixed Teammates not able to be revived if killed by trap on starting platform of the Sparrow section.   
  • Updated pathfinding to prevent Cursed engrams dropped by the Reaver Vandal from falling into a pit. 

Dares of Eternity

  • Fixed an issue where damage to Aspects of Crota would sometimes not ramp up in line with the Team Buff counter.
  • Fixed an issue that allowed vex craniums to damage other players. 

Strikes

  • Lake of Shadows 
    • To bring this boss encounter more in line with other strikes and our modern sandbox gameplay, Grask’s health has been increased by 34%, to a total of 134% of the previous value. He might last at least a minute or two against most fireteams now, even against ‘ol Gally.
    • Fixed an issue where if a player destroyed the second and third Blights before the first one, a number of combatants wouldn’t spawn. In addition to their normal behavior, they now also spawn if you attempt to move up the alley, regardless of the status of the Blights. 
  • The Scarlet Keep
    • Fixed an issue where the crystal to continue the strike was permanently invincible if players got to the Wizard at the first stop of the elevator and killed it before the crystal could spawn.

GAMEPLAY AND INVESTMENT 

Weapons

  • Added guaranteed drops of Dreaming City weapons from completing the Blind Well event.
  • Fixed issue with Wish-Ender Exotic Bow that blocked ornament application.

Abilities

  • Added guaranteed drops of Dreaming City weapons from completing the Blind Well event.
  • Fixed issue with Wish-Ender Exotic Bow that blocked ornament application.
  • Hunter’s Marksman and Gambler’s Dodges now break projectile tracking in PVE modes.
  • Fixed an issue where Stasis Crystals were damaging themselves while spawning.
  • Fixed an issue where Magnetic and Flux Grenades were deleting themselves when impacting allies. Now attach to allies on impact.
  • Fixed an issue where uncharged melee attacks were being suppressed for 1.5 seconds after the Winter’s Wrath super ended.
  • Increased size of the area that Coldsnap Grenade uses to find its initial target from 10m to 20m.
  • Fixed an issue where Penumbral Blast was not reliably creating Iceflare Bolts if the impact or detonation damage killed the target outright.

Bounties and Pursuit

  • Changed the Champion kills objective of the Stasis Fragment quest Umbral Flames to require Champion kills as a Stasis Subclass—rather than Champion kills with the Stasis element.
  • Players who discard the Xenology quest per character will once again be able to re-acquire it from Xûr.

Rewards

  • Fixed an issue causing players to be able to claim the Resplendent Reward Package from Xûr multiple times and across multiple characters. 
    • Players who own the 30th Anniversary Pack will now earn the Resplendent Reward Package the first time they complete To the Daring Go the Spoils, and the package can’t be claimed from Xûr prior to being earned from the quest. 
    • Players who purchase the 30th Anniversary Pack after completing the onramp can obtain the package from Xûr in Eternity.
  • Players can now reclaim the class-specific Streetwear Bundle packages if they get sent to the Postmaster where they can potentially be deleted if the Postmaster becomes full. These packages can be reclaimed from Xûr in Eternity if the Resplendent Reward Package has been claimed but the Streetwear Bundle package is not currently in the player’s inventory.
  • Players can now reclaim the Strange Key from Xûr in Eternity if they dismantle it before using it as part of the Magnum Opus quest. The Strange Key can be reclaimed by players who have already obtained it naturally and dismantled it as long as they are on an appropriate step of the quest. 
  • Fixed an issue allowing players to earn rewards from the free chest in Xûr’s Treasure Hoard without a Treasure Key.

General

  • Fixed a bug in text chat where multiple clan messages could be received all at once after re-enabling text chat.
  • Forsaken Ciphers
    • Exchanging Forsaken Ciphers for Ascendant Shards on the Monument to Lost Lights is now only available after players have already acquired dungeon Forsaken Exotics. 
    • The Monument to Lost Lights now displays a waypoint if players have Forsaken Ciphers to pick up.
    • Exchanging Forsaken Ciphers for Ascendant Shards now has a four second purchase timer, to prevent accidental purchases. Buyer’s remorse in my holiday season? It’s more likely than you think.

Twitch Bounty Shader

We are currently investigating an issue where players are not being rewarded the Watcher’s Shade shader upon completion of a Gift Sub Bounty in the Destiny 2 Twitch Extension. Players who did not successfully receive the shader along with their other bounty rewards will be able to acquire the shader from Amanda Holliday once this issue is resolved in a future update. 

Taskmaster Triumph

The Taskmaster Triumph for Moments of Triumph will not gain progress when completing bounties from destination vendors. This includes vendors such as Devrim in the EDZ, Variks on Europa, etc. To ensure progress is recorded for the Triumph, players should make sure to complete non-destination vendor bounties, such as those from Xûr, Shaxx, or Zavala. 

Hotfix 3.4.0.1 Resolved Issues

Today, December 15, Hotfix 3.4.0.1 was released to the world. This hotfix resolved several issues including:  

  • Players can now reclaim the Strange Key from Xûr if it is deleted. 
  • The Paraversal Prize Triumph will now correctly unlock for players who earn the Forerunner Exotic weapon. 
  • Players who lost their Streetwear Bundles due to a full inventory can now reclaim them from Xûr.
