It might sound weird that I have referred to Destiny’s new expansion “House of Wolves” (set to release May 19th) as a patch but let me explain. “House of Wolves” (HoW) will not be releasing with a raid. Let that soak in… NO RAID!!! So with the expansion we have already had we gained Crota’s End, finally a decent raid to make up for “Vault of Glass”. If you have a character that needs upgrading or a maxed out character and you want to get on Destiny and do something fun you play the raid. It is arguably one of the most entertaining things that you can do in the game. If you happen to be one of the 13,383 members (last I checked) of the Xbox One Destiny Fireteam group on facebook, or you’re a member of one of the other 100’s of facebook or forums to find fellow players. Which I might add only exist because Bungie acts like they have never made a popular game before and decided that they should help in the category of player matching making and community. You will find that the largest majority of the post are to find someone to play through a raid. So what does the money that the majority of you bothering to read this buy? Well there will be a new competitive event called “Trials of Osiris”.
This new event will cost one strange coin just to enter but is supposed to offer you “end game gear”. Well let’s hope they kept like the current pvp events so that every player that goes 0-20 will hit the new max level before everyone else. “House of Wolves will not have a Raid activity. We didn’t make this decision lightly. Our team has been humbled by the reception of Raids in Destiny and we are creating a new Raid for a release later this year. House of Wolves will have a new cooperative end game activity focused on variety, replayability, and skill – a new battle Arena called The Prison of Elders. ”. A battle arena kind of sounds like another pvp. At least this is the first time that Bungie has put pvp above the rest of the game. *cough Halo cough* They are very proud to tell everyone how they are fixing exotic weapon upgrade paths and heavy weapon ammo issues. So congrats to everyone how is lucky enough to join me in paying for a patch! Game on.
