Ain't no thing like me, except me. I am 50% of the awesome people behind this website. I enjoy writing about my deep love for (J)RPG's, fighting games, and Destiny. Really do not like Call of Duty and Battle Royale games. Absolutely love Sushi and Burgers.
Yesterday’s Destiny stream provided us with some much needed information on its big spring update. The update will offer new quests, bounties, and a new mission set after the fall of Oryx.
This first stream was focused on the new challenges coming to Destiny‘s spring update. It’s nice to know that the in 2015’s House of Wolves add-on introduced , Prison of Elders mode will be making a comeback. This time around the Prison of Elders will feature the Taken and eight updated bosses for you to destroy. There are more features coming to the update, but the return of the Prison of Elders is what matters here. There are two more streams scheduled for the coming weeks and they are focused on the new rewards coming to Destiny and new live updates.
So which new challenges can be tackled in Destiny‘s big spring update? A full rundown of the new challenges can be found below.
MAX LIGHT RAISED
New challenges demand that you become even more powerful to overcome them. Difficulty and Rewards have both been increased in Prison of Elders, Court of Oryx, Heroic Strikes, Nightfall Strikes, and in the King’s Fall Raid, as well as Iron Banner and Trials of Osiris.
RETURN TO THE PRISON
For the first time, face the Taken and eight updated bosses in a Level 41 version of Prison of Elders. Visit Variks to partake in a brand new mode, Challenge of the Elders, featuring scoring, weekly boss battles, gameplay twists, and rewards.
Claim an Elders’ Sigil from Variks each week in The Reef, and put your Fireteam to the test against three consecutive boss waves. The bosses and the gameplay modifiers change each week, for a total of sixteen unique encounters. Your score is tracked on the Elders’ Sigil, and on Bungie.net Leaderboards.
NEW QUEST FEATURING THE BLIGHTED CHALICE STRIKE
The Taken King is dead. Yet still his armies claw at our worlds. Even as you led the assault on the Dreadnaught, a powerful would-be Taken Prince fled for the safety of the shadows. Hunt him down before he grows too powerful.
TAKEN STRIKE: WINTER’S RUN
A cell, from the Prison of Elders! The Taken now corrupt this territory where the Fallen House of Winter once attempted to raise a powerful Archon Priest. Fight your way to the cell. Stop the Taken surge.
UPDATED DIFFICULTY & REWARDS FOR KING’S FALL & COURT OF ORYX
Kingsfall Normal drops increased to light level 320. Kingsfall Hard drops increased to light level 330. Court of Oryx Artifact Drops increased to light level 335
Next week Bungie will shine some light on the new rewards coming to Destiny on April 12.
