Be wary of bugs and their fixes! (Destiny)

Yay! Slycrel mentioned I'd need to talk to Amanda...

Wish I could be more precise, but how the New Light (free) experience works for players that had some progress prior to its implementation is not well documented. If you can't figure it out, feel free to ask here.

Yeah, if you started progress on anything, it may be active as a quest, or it may have wiped your progress and hopped over to Amanda's inventory. There's no precise way to know (and honestly, Bungie may have no idea themselves). That said, if you get stuck somewhere, you should be able to delete the quest and start it over with Amanda.

Warmind is fairly short, and they have fixed pretty much all of the progression bugs (I'm finally collecting resonant stems!).
Forsaken might have a few bugs between completing the main campaign and unlocking the Dreaming City. When that happens, try deleting the artifact that you collect. I can't remember who gives it to you, but it might just go ahead and complete that step for you (I can't recall my own workaround).

Likewise, when you do unlock the dreaming City, you're supposed to talk to a Sjur statue in the Shattered Throne. That may also be bugged, but a patch earlier this year was aimed to fix that. If you don't get a quest from the statue, you'll have to Change characters and try again. It's for the Wishender exotic.

86 days, November 9th? :-/ k.

The next expansion, Beyond Light, comes out on November 10th. I don't think the exact timing in terms of resets or maintenance downtime has been announced yet.

Thanks for the prompt & concise response.

Brevity has its positives. If I may make a suggestion, don't forget to run the Whisper of the Worm mission! It's available all the time now, and selectable from orbit on Io.

Also, shoot me a message when you want to run that. I'm happy to help you with Normal or Heroic for it!
