Destiny 2s Bottomless Grief and Celerity benefits will see a big rework next season, Bungie stated Thursday in its weekly post. The studio likewise exposed considerable overhauls for 2 Tower vendors, offering gamers different areas to look for weapons or armor. Both the perk and vendor changes will appear in Destiny 2 season 14, which starts May 11 and will see the return of the Vault of Glass raid and the addition of a Transmog system.
With the return of Trials of Osiris last year, Bungie included a new perk that can roll only on Trials weapons: Celerity. If theyre the just living member of their Fireteam in PvP, Celerity is an unique perk that considerably improves gamer statistics. The studio included a comparable perk for Strike-specific weapons earlier this year, Bottomless Grief. Weapons with Bottomless Grief will instantly reload their publication when gamers get kills. But like Celerity, Bottomless Grief just works when a gamer is the last living Fireteam member.
” Players never like betting against themselves or their groups”
These perks sound excellent, but rarely feel beneficial in the moment. As weapons feature lead Chris Proctor kept in mind, “Players never ever like betting versus themselves or their teams.” Without that stop working state, the advantages do absolutely nothing, making them unwanted for the majority of gamers.
But starting next season, both perks will see some enhancement. Bottomless Grief will instantly grant players +30 to the Magazine stat (which is a portion increase to ammo, based upon the weapon type) in addition to its usual perk. Celerity will provide gamers +20 to the Reload and Handling stat in addition to the “last player standing” base impact.
Even much better, both benefits will automatically appear on Adept weapons– Bottomless Grief for Grandmaster weapons, and Celerity for Trials weapons. The perk will appear as a different node under the left-most perk, offering gamers the choice to pick one of these new benefits or something like Outlaw that rolled in the other slot. Its not entirely clear if these benefits will now be scheduled for Adept weapons and that special slot, or if they can still randomly roll on non-Adept variations (were inclined to think the latter),.
Bungie kept in mind that other game-mode-specific benefits– what Bungie is now calling “origin advantages”– worked well with the brand-new perks added by means of the Deep Stone Crypt raid. The studio stated it prepares to add more origin advantages in the future, although it appears itll avoid “failure state” perks like the original Celerity and Bottomless Grief going forward. If they want the guaranteed Bottomless Grief or Celerity nodes, its worth keeping in mind that players will require to get brand-new Adept weapons.
Bungie offered this preview of the upcoming Transmog system previously this year.
Bottomless Grief will automatically approve gamers +30 to the Magazine stat (which is a percentage boost to ammo, based on the weapon type) in addition to its usual perk. The perk will appear as a different node under the left-most perk, offering gamers the choice to select one of these new advantages or something like Outlaw that rolled in the other slot. Bungie noted that other game-mode-specific benefits– what Bungie is now calling “origin perks”– worked well with the new advantages included through the Deep Stone Crypt raid. The studio said it prepares to add more origin perks in the future, although it appears itll avoid “failure state” benefits like the original Celerity and Bottomless Grief going forward. Each weapon comes with a static perk roll, providing players the possibility to spread out the word to buddies if Banshee-44 has an especially excellent weapon for sale.
In addition to these perk modifications, Bungie likewise exposed some supplier enhancements being available in season 14. The studio formerly announced that Ada-1 will return to the Tower to function as the Transmog vendor– what Bungie says it will now call “Armor Synthesis,” or the process of making one piece of armor appear like another. The new blog detailed another function for her: armor vendor.
Ada-1 will offer two random armor mods each day, offering brand-new players an opportunity to diversify their arsenal of mods. Ada-1 will likewise offer a whole armor set arbitrarily pulled from the world loot swimming pool (only armor that drops from general activities or enemies, so no raid armor). This weekly armor set works likewise to Xur because it changes weekly and has repaired stats for all players for the offered week.
With Ada-1 taking over weapon duties, Banshee-44– the Gunsmith– will broaden his weapon offering. Starting next season, Banshee-44 will randomly offer six various weapons a week (2 Kinetic, 2 Energy, and two Power). Each weapon comes with a fixed perk roll, providing players the possibility to get the word out to buddies if Banshee-44 has an especially excellent weapon for sale. This is an excellent new addition for players who cant seem to get a good roll for False Promises or some other weapon in the general world drop pool.
Both Ada-1 and Banshee-44 will offer upgrade products like Ascendant Shards and Prisms. All of these modifications should appear in video game on May 11, at the start of Destiny 2s as-yet-unnamed 14th season.
