  • Increased the drop rate of Treasure Keys from Ether Chests

Prison of Elders

  • Greatly increased the drop rate of Treasure Keys from the small chests
  • Class Items will now drop from Level 32, Level 34, and Level 35 
  • Fixed a bug in which the Ship (Hildian Seeker) did not drop under certain circumstances
  • Fixed a bug in which the ‘Elder Cipher’ Bounty could not be acquired if your Bounty inventory was full
  • You will need to defeat Skolas again to receive the ‘Elder Cipher’ Bounty
  • Damage caused by Qodron’s Gaze is reduced by 25%
  • Damage multiplier for the Jailbreaker buff increased by 100%

Trials of Osiris

  • Fixed an issue in which Trials of Osiris emblems were not sent to the Postmaster if your Emblem inventory was full
  • Passage Coins can now be dismantled

Weekly Heroics

  • Fixed an issue where the Weekly Heroic strikes did not award engrams (Note: Tooltip will not display them as rewards)

World

  • Increased the drop rate of Treasure Keys from Ether Chests
  • Ether Chests may only be looted once per spawn
  • Ether Chests will no longer grant ammo consumables when opened
  • Ether Chests will now grant a small amount of Queen’s Wrath reputation when opened
  • Ether Chests now have a chance to drop Tokens of Flight, Identity, and Judgment

Quests

  • Petra will no longer display a quest waypoint for players who have not purchased House of Wolves

Bounties

  • The first Wanted Fallen Bounty completed each week is now guaranteed to drop a Treasure Key

Weapons

  • Fixed a bug in which the 1.2.0.1 hotfix mistakenly did not contain the 1.1.1 Fusion Rifle balance changes.  As a result, players were playing with its pre-1.1.1 weapon balance state.  The original fix has been re-applied.

Items

  • Ammo consumables can now stack to 100

Iron Banner will then go live at 10am PT/1pm ET.

Original Story:

While patch notes aren’t available quite yet (we’ll update this post when they are), Bungie announced that Destiny update 1.2.0.2 is now deploying on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, and Xbox 360.

As a result of the new update, you’ll be kicked from activities and required to download it:

Pardon our dust! We are pushing a patch live today. Players will be returned to the title screen from their activities and then be required to log in to Destiny again after installing the patch.

Additionally, even after you download 1.2.0.2, Bungie warns that there might be some connection interruptions between 8am PT/11am ET and 9am PT/12pm ET:

Between 8AM and 9AM Pacific tomorrow, our deployment of Destiny Update 1.2.0.2 will interrupt your conection. Patch Notes will soon follow.

Also today, you’ll be able to check out the improved Iron Banner, with these changes listed by Bungie in their Weekly Update:

  • Lower-ranked Guardians on your account will receive a reputation boost to catch up to your higher-ranked Guardian more quickly
  • Rewards cost less Glimmer – the grind is less real
  • Etheric Light is available for purchase at Rank 3 and Rank 5
  • The Gunsmith has inherited Lord Saladin’s weapon reforging service
  • Power still matters, and it matters a little more as the delta between two players increases
  • The Cauldron and Pantheon have been added to the playlist, along with Exodus Blue on PlayStation

How big of a download was today’s update for you?
