So, first, Bungie, you give us back Cayde-6 RIGHT NOW! Now that I’ve gotten that out of the way, Bungie just announced the upcoming Destiny 2 prestige raids are going to be released on a staggered basis. Since the raids are going to a “World’s First” race, the decision has been made, with feedback from the community, to release one raid on July 17 and the next on July 18. That way, those clans who want to try and get that title of “World’s First” won’t have to decide between the Eater of Worlds raid or the Spire of Stars raid.
Based on player feedback–and to ensure each World’s First race has a clean start–we’re changing the release times of each activity. Eater of Worlds will receive a one-hour delay to ensure player have ample time to download and install Destiny 2 Update 1.2.3 once it becomes available. Spire of Stars has been delayed 24 hours to offset the activity release.
In the earlier release, he outlined what they believe are going to be the main focuses when it comes to the new update. With the major expansion coming out in September, Bungie believes the community will be looking for 400-level weapons, Raid Armor Ornaments, and exotic masterwork Catalysts. The raids will be the only way to get 400-level weapons before Forsaken and each prestige raid will have its own unique armor ornaments.
Blackburn does toss the community a bit of a bone, however. He says the modifier for the new raid will be brand new and called Arsenal.
It’s weird, and that’s all I’ll say about it. As far as the curated loadout goes, I can only give you a little advice about one slot: I’ve been looking out from my Time-Worn Spire and I feel an Autumn Wind blowing.
So that is what we have so far when it comes to the upcoming raids. Destiny 2 has had a rough go of it and the community has shrunk considerably since its release. This upcoming major release is going to need to do a great deal of work to get the community up and running in the way it was back in its most popular days.
The Eater of Worlds Prestige, 11 a.m. PDT on July 17
Spire of Stars Prestige, 10 a.m. PDT on July 18
