Just a short time after update 1.0.1.4 went live in Destiny, Bungie has brought out update 1.0.1.5 today, with the developer saying, “You will be need to log in again once you return to orbit. You will not be kicked from activities.”

Helping to address some economy exploits, here’s the patch notes for this latest update:

Activities

Missions

  • Reduced drop rate of engrams following a hard wipe [fixed in 1.0.1.4]

Queen’s Wrath Event

  • Material rewards for dismantling Queen’s Wrath gear will no longer provide ascendant materials, but missions will continue to drop Legendary items

World Destinations

  • The Hive of the holy “Treasure Cave” have realized the futility of their endless assault on Skywatch and have retired to lick their wounds and plan their next attack.
  • Respawn timers for monster caves in Skywatch have been normalized to 40 seconds (increased from 6)
  • Respawn timers for monster caves in Forgotten Shore have been normalized to 40 seconds (increased from 10)
  • Respawn timers for monster caves in Ember Caves have been normalized to 40 seconds (increased from 10)
  • Respawn timers for monster caves in the Shattered Coast have been normalized to 40 seconds (increased from 10)
  • Respawn timers for monster caves in the Barrens have been normalized to 40 seconds (increased from 20)

Are you disappointed to see Bungie dealing with the Treasure Cave?
