The primary 2021 TWAB is a doozy because it wades proper into some controversial waters, and hits on a couple of huge subjects in Future 2 proper now.
The previous few weeks since Bungie went darkish for the vacations has seen numerous gamers discontent with points of Future 2, notably with regards to sunsetting and the dearth of weapons as we method one other season the place extra weapons might be eliminated; but in addition the present dominance of Stasis in PvP.
This newest TWAB does start to handle a these points and extra. Let’s begin with the reprisal of some tools from the Moon and The Dreaming Metropolis.
The armor units might be reprised and can drop with excessive stat rolls in each the Shattered Throne and Pit of Heresy respectively.
Additionally, 4 weapons from every of these locations might be added to the drop pool:
- Dreaming Metropolis: Waking Vigil, Sleepless, Vouchsafe, and Retold Story.
- Premonition (Pit of Heresy solely), Heretic, Blasphemer, and Apostate.
These weapons can drop in Pit of Heresy and once they do, they’ll roll with perks that can not be discovered wherever else. Lastly a motive to do Shattered Throne.
Nonetheless, the masterworked Dreambane armor is out for Pit of Heresy and as a substitute is being changed with an armor piece that drops with 7 armor vitality and is assured to drop with no less than a +16 in two completely different stats with larger stats total. Shard farmers might be upset, however no less than it’s a greater probability at first rate armor. Additionally: lastly a motive to do Shattered Throne.
It’s a bit perplexing why Bungie stopped brief with simply 4 weapons every, however let’s transfer on.
Distributors are getting an enormous shake up. Every vendor will now have a season move like system the place ranks will earn you set rewards as you progress. Try what it appears to be like like beneath:
Right here’s the reward monitor for every vendor through the TWAB:
Rewards for every particular person ritual are as follows:
- Rank 4: 3x Improve Modules
- Rank 7: 3x Enhancement Cores
- Rank 10: Seasonal Ritual Shader (adjustments to 3x Enhancement Cores after resetting your rank)
- Rank 13: 2x Enhancement Prisms
- Rank 16: Seasonal Ritual Emblem (adjustments to 2x Enhancement Prisms after resetting your rank)
- Reset Reward: Ascendant Shard (adjustments to Unique Engram after resetting your rank)
What’s odd, although, is that this solely applies to Crucible and Gambit and Strikes will nonetheless function underneath the outdated system till an undisclosed later time.
Lastly, the TWAB addresses a few of the stability points with Stasis and the Crucible. There’s so much, and I like to recommend popping over to the TWAB itself for a full listing of adjustments.
Nonetheless most notably, Shatterdive and Whisper of Fissures acquired hit with the nerf bat fairly onerous:
- Now has injury falloff vs. unfrozen targets
- Max vary injury lowered from 50 to five
- Harm discount throughout skill lowered from 50% to 25%
- Whisper of Fissures
- Decreased max-min injury vs. non-super gamers from 42-22 to 30-4
- Decreased max-min injury vs. tremendous gamers from 42-22 to 16-2
- Decreased detonation radius vs. gamers from 10m to 9m
This isn’t the complete listing of adjustments coming to Future 2: Past Gentle in Season 13, and Bungie talked about that we’ll study extra about adjustments to return over the subsequent few TWABs between now and Season 13.
