Trials Is Back In Black (Shield)

Trials and Iron Banner

After a short, bug-induced absence, Trials of Osiris returns to Destiny!  Bungie will be monitoring the matchmaking performance, and assuming that all goes well, Iron Banner may also make a return on Tuesday (June 28th, 10AM PST), so keep your fingers crossed!

For a full rundown of the Trials and Iron Banner info, check out the article over on Bnet.

This Week's Iron Banner Gear Previewed

Bungie posted previews of the gear Lord Saladin will be selling this week on their Twitter and FaceBook accounts yesterday.

The weapons on offer are the Finnala's Peril hand cannon and the Bretomart's Stand heavy machine gun.


The armor offerings will be the arms and chest pieces for each class.

Bungie said we can expect Iron Banner to open up in connection with Update 2.0.2, which should go live at approximately 10:00 am PST - so keep an eye out for those patch notes this morning as well!

BWU - November 12, 2015

Deej is still on vacation, but Cozmo stepped up to make sure we don't go a Thursday without a Bungie Weekly Update!  The rundown is that we will be getting the "November" update sometime next week, which will bring weapon parts for sale from Banshee, additional items such as legendary swords for sale from Shaxx, some changes to crucible bounties, and finally a true fix to the Nightstalker's Quiver glitch.  Also, prepare yourselves for Iron Banner which will be returning on Tuesday, this time with 100% less Control zones!

As always, a local copy is available to read here as well.

The Iron Banner's Power

Deej bought in Senior Designer Derek Carroll to illuminate the changes to power differences in the new Iron Banner (which launches today). There's a fancy new chart showing the changes between all the Iron Banner updates since launch - the newest version sounding even more rigorous than ever!

Iron Banner Resources, for the Worthy (and not-so-worthy)

The latest Iron Banner went live yesterday... and the competition is fierce! (The prizes, whether bought directly from Lord Saladin through dint of long play or gained through random drops in-game, are substantial.) Are you ready? Here are some resources if you're looking to maximize your advancement, courtesy of the hardcore stats folks at reddit:

  • The weapons you use matter in Iron Banner far more than they do in standard Crucible - weapons damage is NOT normalized, so picking your best gear (and making sure it's fully upgraded) is critical. A spreadsheet put together by exxtrooper can help you sort out the weapons that play to your personal strengths. (Thanks, Kahzgul.)
  • A more in-depth look at Exotics, put together by maniacgreek using that spreadsheet as a starting point, can narrow things down even further. Thanks, iconicbanana.
  • Have limited time, but really want to buy something that's not sold until you're Rank 4 (or 5)? Check out this post from GenericDreadHead - it breaks down exactly how fast you'll earn rep, based on what you're wearing, when you play and how you win. It's an invaluable post if you have a specific goal and limited time to reach it.

Use these tools - and your friends (going into IB with a team is FAR easier than going in alone) - to make the most of this week! (Don't have enough friends to form a real wrecking crew? Ask on our forum - there are folks playing all the time!) And just for fun... mindlessframe created some posters you can use as wallpaper, to get in the mood.

Highlights from an Iron Lord

CruelLEGACEY dropped off a fun highlight reel of action collected from this week's Iron Banner. Makes me wish I had more free time!

He also posted some neat fanart of his Warlock.

Iron Banner Is Live


Just a little reminder that the Iron Banner is back on again at the Tower (I had completely forgot it was happening), so if you're in need of some +36 light armor, now's your chance. More details at Bungie.Net here, and a DBO forum thread here.

Iron Banner Unfurled

Go see Bungie.Net's post for the details, then jump onto Destiny and start destroying your poor innocent opponents. Or be destroyed by them, like me!. You can earn level 31 gear now.

The Iron Banner Rises Again


Bungie is back with a revised Iron Banner. You can read the gist at Bungie.Net, which will guide you through what numbers count in Saladin's playdate and what rewards are possible. Beorn pointed out on our forum that the Tempered buff activates immediately when you purchase it - it isn't an item you choose to activate.

Bungie's also streaming their gameplay starting at 11:00 AM Pacific, so go watch that if you can't partake just yet.

Forget Lord Shaax, Bow to Lord Saladin

Iron Banner is here until October 14th!

Take your levels and gear for all their worth into the battlefield and win some rewards from the noble Iron Lords (before they go back to Gondor & Winterfell).

How's free for you?

If $35 (after the Bungie Day discount) is still too steep for you for the new Destiny Banners at the Bungie Store, a couple of websites are giving some away. IGN UK wants you to tweet their name (you must be a resident of the UK to be eligible), while VG24/7 just wants to know which one you're looking for. Okay, true, your chances aren't great... but hey, free is better than not free!
