Subscribe To Destiny Loot Patch Will Hopefully Fix Engrams Updates
Bungie announced a Destiny patch this afternoon that's sure to please a lot of players. Patch 1.0.2's main objective is to help players acquire new gear quicker.
Many enemies in Destiny drop Engrams, mysterious items that can then be exchanged at the Cryptarch for loot. This system gives players something to look forward to at the end of their mission. However, both Legendary and Rare Engrams tend to produce much crappier loot than expected. This tiresome fact of life even inspired a parody Twitter account:
Patch 1.0.2 will fix the Engrams problem, however. Moving forward, the Cryptarch will decode Engrams into items at the same quality or above.
"Legendary Engram items that exist in your inventory will be demoted to Rare quality when the patch goes live, so decode them while you can. But let’s be honest--even if you don’t, we all know they were blues already," Bungie jokes.
Here's the full list of fixes in the patch:
Yesterday Bungie released a patch that removed the "loot cave" exploit from the game. The combination of fast-spawning enemies and tight quarters made that cave in Old Russia an ideal place to farm up Engrams.
I kind of wish Bungie had held off on patching out the loot cave until they released the Engram fixes mentioned above. However, the cave admittedly was ruining gameplay. Some players were just sitting there all day instead of playing the new content Bungie was adding. Something had to be done, and quickly.
If you're looking for an easy place to rustle up some loot before the patch hits, don't worry. Players are claiming that there's a second loot cave over in the Rocketyard. You can find Loot Cave 2.0 through this PS4Trophies video.
