Not only is Bungie resurrecting the legendary Vault of Glass Raid for Destiny 2 Season 14, but they have also announced that it will also play host to a World’s First race too.

Season of the Chosen is continuing to smash it out the park for Bungie and has treated its players to a myriad of content, with Weekly Challenges and the new Battlegrounds activity.

It won’t be too long until Season 14 starts, and the next chapter in the Beyond Light saga begins. Along with all-sorts of fresh assets for the series, Destiny 2 will unearth a modernized version of the historic Vault of Glass Raid. The first-ever Raid in the franchise clearly holds sentimental value for many players, and they’re set to get more than they bargained for.

As well as the usual trove of rewards and goodies, Bungie has informed players that they will also have to wage war with every other team to see who gets the winner’s belts for finishing first.

Destiny players have become accustomed to a new yearly Raid to look forward to with the launch of each new expansion. Beyond Light introduced the Deep Stone Crypt Raid into the franchise’s lore, and it won’t be too long before players will have to prepare themselves for the next Raid.

In an official Bungie blog post, they said, “Vault of Glass will also launch with both a Contest mode in the first 24 hours and a World First race. Since this is a reprised raid, we’re going to do World First a bit differently.”

The post goes on to say that, “Players looking to claim the belt will not only have to complete the raid, but also a curated list of challenging Triumphs. And while only one fireteam will walk away with a belt, there will be plenty of opportunities for players to earn the ability to purchase some sweet real-world loot through Bungie Rewards.”

This makes the Raid a more tantalizing and intriguing proposition than what players were already suspecting. There’s already an aura of mystery surrounding the Raid as it’s obviously been seen before in its earliest form.

The addition of new Triumphs throws a spanner into the works and will surely alter many fireteam’s strategies with iron-clad tactics and knowledge of the original Raid.

The post also concluded by saying that Vault of Glass will eventually include a much-harder version of its existing state to challenge players: “Before the end of the year we are also looking to add a Master version of Vault of Glass.”

  • Fixed an issue where Windows 7 users were unable to launch the game due to some incompatible *.dll files. 

LOCALIZATION

  • Fixed an issue with Japanese translations of a few lore entries.
  • Fixed an issue where several languages did not have a description for the Seasonal artifact.

GENERAL 

  • Fixed an issue where the Xunyou offer was not rewarding the correct items.
  • Fixed an issue where the Warlock’s Nova Warp wouldn’t Blink if Hold Sprint was active. 
  • Fixed an issue where the barriers surrounding the Scorch Cannons in the Fallen Walker public event repelled anything that came near them. 
  • Increased the score target for Iron Banner Control from 125 to 150 (matching base Control). 
  • Adjusted the Iron Banner Mercy thresholds to reduce the number of games that end shortly before they reach the score target.

Ager’s Scepter in Destiny 2

Destiny 2’s Season of the Lost has added a new Exotic Weapon called Ager’s Scepter, and here’s everything you need to know about it, including how to unlock it.

Destiny 2 has a wide assortment of powerful weapons that you can take with you into battle, and Season of the Lost has added some new and veteran ones like the Lorentz Drive exotic and Darkest Below.

Ager’s Scepter is an Exotic Weapon that was featured prominently in the Season 15 reveal trailer, and you can now unlock it in the game. This guide will help you get your hands on this Exotic trace rifle.

Getting this Destiny 2 weapon isn’t going to be easy, since you’ll need to complete a few quests first. First, you need to get through the intro quest to Season 15, Wayfinder’s Voyage.

This requires you to find Osiris before you work with Mara Sov and Petra Venj. You’ll have to do a lot of traveling through the H.E.L.M, as well as to Trostland, the Shattered Realm, and The Tower.

After you’ve spoken with Ikora Rey and completed the quest, you can accept Tracing the Stars from the Wayfinder’s Compass in the H.E.L.M.

Astral Skew in Destiny 2

These weekly quests require you to collect objects known as Skews from different parts of the Dreaming City. These can be particularly tricky to find as they are spread out all over the city.

Here’s a breakdown of each week’s quest:

  1. Week One: Divalian Mists/Spine of Keres
  2. Week Two: The Strand/Aphelion’s Rest
  3. Week Three: Rheasilvia/Harbinger’s Seclude
  4. Week Four: Confluence/Harbinger/Gardens of Esila

The Caliburn Gatehouse in Destiny 2

A Hollow Coronation is much easier to complete than the previous quest. This tasks you with depositing the Astral Skews that you collected while completing Tracing the Stars.

Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Head back to the H.E.L.M
  2. Travel through the same gate that you previously used to get to Mara Sov’s chambers
  3. Once you arrive at Caliburn Gatehouse, deposit the Astral Skews
  4. Head back through the portal to collect your reward at the Wayfinder’s Compass.

In order to collect the Scepter, you’ll also have to complete some Astral Alignments, Strikes, and get Mara Sov to craft a Noble Seal for you. Once that’s done, you can finally claim Ager’s Scepter.
