  • Well of Radiance
    • Bonus damage is now +25% (Previously +35%)
  • Weapons of Light
    • Bonus damage is now +35% (Previously +25%


... Modified Lord of the Rings quote aside...

There is so much change here that any thoughts I, or perhaps any of us, have are basically irrelevant. That's a lot of numbers to crunch. At the end of it all, How does it feel? How does it play? Is it fun.


That said... how 'bout that faction...er... fashion show!

Dreambane Armor Set
Acquired from activities on the Moon.


Bungie. My Bond is a rag. What are you doing? Hunters, I hope those tassels on the back move. Titans, I'm so happy for you. Your shoulders are no longer the size of a baby moose. PROGRESS!

Garden of Salvation Raid Armor Set
Acquired from the Garden of Salvation raid.


Well well well. Behold the RAID Gear! A source of the recent HUFF'N'PUFF. This is a reskin?! Well done Bungie. I hope we get a glowing shader to match! I like it. No beef. +100 Points to the Bungie Art Team.

Substitutional Armor Set
Acquired from Seasonal activities, free Season Rank rewards, and premium Season Rank rewards.


I must admit, it's not the most thrilling gear. Yet, for the sake of some D1 feels, I like it. I no longer recall the D1 Name, but some kit in D1 had leaves and what not on them and I called it my "Stealth Kit". It was one of my fave visual/playstyle loadouts. So I look forward to seeing if I can give a D2 revamp.

Phenotype Plasticity Universal Ornament Set
Acquired from premium Season Rank rewards.


I think we can all say, in agreement, that this is across the board unquestionably some of the sexiest/best/badass looking armor in the history of Destiny. And... they chose to make this an Ornament! Why wear anything else?!?


I look forward to seeing someone make this for a Convention Costume.

Iron Will Armor Set
Acquired from participating in Iron Banner.


After seeing the above "Phenotype" set, how do you follow that!?! This set is nice. It's a solid 8. But... there's no beating 11. I like the Hunter Visor. That's kinda cool.

Empyrean Cartographer Universal Ornament Set
Acquired from the Eververse store.


Bananas. Bananas. Bananas.

Is... is that a Mohawk!?! Is... is that a quiver on the cape!?! Is... is that... a fancy pattern on my dress/kilt/proper-name-not-found? Are the folks who work on Warlock Fashion even trying!?!?

How depressing.

Speeking of Depressing...

This was a pretty meaty update. Look forward to trying it all out.
