Almost every week brings something new. Destiny 2Be it story beats, new activities or exciting new combinations of elements that allow players to destroy each other in the crucible. Iron Banter is our weekly look at what is happening in the world of destiny and what is drawing our attention to the solar system.
With most of the main content of Season of the Lost, we’re more or less formally in a period of hype – you’ll see a flood of details and hints before reaching The Witch Queen. Final start of the expansion on February 22. It’s coming out this week with a new trailer for The Witch Queen that includes a closer look at the local space and some fun hints about what might happen there.
So, hey, guess who’s thinking. Possibilities of the story–This boy [points at self].
There is a lot of speculation, but with the new trailer, we have at least some areas to focus on. The biggest thing I’m interested in is the broader story of Savathun and its motives, because I think everything in The Witch Queen is going to be a lot more complicated.
I spent the first part of the week putting on the latest trailer for Witch Queen and breaking everything in it, looking for clues to the story that Bungee Destiny 2 is trying to tell in the next chapter. (Related and at the same time, Sania Ahmed digs deeper into the old threads of the Mars story that seem to be going to be very relevant.) She raises more questions than answers, of course, but there are some things that Ongoing feelings were involved. Where the witch’s queen is going. The key is:
This is a statue of Orix, Taken King, fighting the insect god Aka. It’s a scene out of the books of sorrow, the myth of Hive’s creation, which may seem at least partially true but may involve part of the lie – as is to be done with Hive. But I don’t think it’s a cool reference to something very scholarly (which you should read at all, because destiny is the stuff of some of the best stories in the universe).
I’ve been making the impression for a while that Southon wants to be friends. The idea originated somewhat with Season of the Lost, when Southaun revealed that she was imitating Osiris and claimed that the manipulation of her events (as evil) actually served a helpful purpose. Were turned to the side. She claims she wants to be an ally, though she can’t help but be horrified about it, and while marketing The Dine Queen apparently paints Southampton as an expansion villain, so far the trailers And the impression made by the gestures does a lot for him. Suggest that Savathun is guiding us during the expansion or pushing us in a certain direction, instead of trying to kill us as Hive usually does.
Let’s pause for a second and admit that Savathun is a god of deception, so anything can be a lie or a conspiracy to be vague and vague because she literally deceives people to believe her lies. ۔ That said, over the course of more than a year, Savathun’s actions have reinforced the feeling that he has indeed changed course and is now an active enemy of darkness, the demonic force in the Destiny 2 universe, and the insect gods. ۔ Empowered Hive for Eons. Her own sister, Xivu Arath, is hunting down Savathun and apparently intends to kill him in the service of darkness. And last season, Savathun worked to keep us mentors. far off The effect of darkness. Whatever lies she is telling, looking at the events we have seen and the battles we have actually fought, it seems a fact that Savathun is actually fighting in the dark.
Well, let him prove that Savathun no longer wants to be a slave to the gods of darkness or worms. The sculpture could then be a fine piece of art, with Southampton commemorating Orex’s battle against Aka. It could be a tribute to the family, or a memorial to the first defeat of the insect gods, since Savathun is no longer a fan. But it could be something else.
For some time now, a fan theory has been circulating that one of Hive’s growing goals is to revive Orex. Eventually, we left a void on the Orex throne when we killed it again in Destiny 1 and no one filled it – something that was a major theme of Forsaken and Toland the Shattered in the Ascendant Realm. With all our tours. Shadowcap is about the factions that are trying to capture Hive’s rankings and disagree about Hive’s leadership. And although Savathun is lying to us, what he said that really comes true in the lost season was about his dedication to the family. While the gods of the Hive have fought countless battles with each other over thousands of years, they have always regarded the attacks as love aimed at strengthening each other – which is essentially their religion, evolution through Sword Logic. To force I think it’s true that Southon still feels for his siblings.
So this memorial may not be just a historical tribute to the past works of Orex or kicking the donkey, the god of worms, but a tribute to Taken King. I think it’s possible that Savathun wants to bring back Oryx – you know, through some weird Destiny space magic – and if so, I think Savathun not only wants to free himself from darkness. Yes, but also Oryx.
So that’s my big fan idea of the moment. The truth we are going to learn about Savathun is that she wants to revive Orex and free Hive completely from insects. The Witch Queen expansion saw Savathun gain the power of light, and when we stand up to him, keep me on record that he sees it as another manipulation – this time in the dark, not Savathun himself. ۔ We will finally see the flaws in our methods.
Ultimately, I don’t think it will be the forces of light that stand against darkness, but rather Life. We are already looking for allies between Alexani and Cable, alien races who have been our enemies for years (if not, in the sense of the story). Centuries). We’ll eventually join Hive, I think, and maybe Vex. It will be a life fought against death, in which all of us living beings are demanding the right to exist.
I mean, if they revived Orcs and the king they took was ours. Friend? How sick would it be?
The orbs of oppression
In this week’s Bungie blog post, the developer outlines a relatively minor change that sparked the outrage that the Destiny 2 community sees from time to time. Go to r / destinythegame subreddit to see what I mean. It boils down to this: Guns will no longer produce power buses through masterwork. With The Witch Queen, you’ll be equipped with specific modes for your coach, which will allow you to create a specific type of gun orbus for you.
The apparent reason for this particular change is the elimination of the need for players to accumulate exotic catalysts for specific exotic weapons. If you are unfamiliar, Catalyst is something you can find or earn in Destiny 2 that is equipped with Exotic weapons, and once you meet their requirements, upgrade this particular gun. They also create power buses. A bunch of catalysts are only available through random drops in certain activities, which means a lot of people don’t have them, and it can take a long time to get them. Sometimes you get lucky. Often you do not. To you WhatThe spiffy exotic that you like does not produce Orbs. This new mood solution treats it.
We don’t have all the details about Orb’s situation, needless to say, as Bungie will leave out additional details later. However, it looks like Orbs will be joining the new armament system and that there are likely to be more changes to the Orbs system as a whole.
But that’s one of the things players are worried about, and it’s possible to see why. Currently, you can make orbs with all three guns in your arsenal, provided you either master them or if they are catalysts if they are exotic. And Orbs are very useful in gameplay, because they help you get your super fast and can give you extra benefits, such as health or renewable energy. When you create the current Destiny 2 loadout, you think of Orbs.
With the change of mood, it seems that instead of having three guns for Orb Generation, you will have … less, probably. Each mode is associated with a specific damage type for the Orb Generation, so it looks like you’ll have to equip your Arc Guns with a mode to make Orbs, or your Void Guns, etc. Athletes are angry because it will block the ability to change guns in flight. Instead of just moving from arc to vanity according to the situation, they are looking at the need to change modes from their helmets to make sure they are still producing Orbs, or worse, Exchanging the entire Helmet for another in which the set modes are ready to go.
I generally disagree with the community’s reaction to such changes, because personally, how my guns produce power orbs is not something that bleeds me. It’s just a mediocre mechanic for me that barely affects how I play the game 99% of the time and that way I don’t really care. I feel the same way about many things in Destiny 2, truth be told. This is not really a big deal.
And I think a lot of these reactions are, in fact, MoreReaction Most activities in Destiny 2 are not that difficult and do not require much care or attention for loadout or construction work. That’s the decent thing to do, and it should end there. Areas where you need to take care of whether your guns produce arbus in all situations are high level activities like raids or grandmaster night falls. In most of these cases, where the game is Very difficult That every armor, weapon selection, and modern attachment matters, well, you’ll be locked out of equipment anyway. You are not changing weapons or making modern adjustments. So making the big switch on your loadout in the scenario you’re changing to make sure you’re still regenerating, Orbs of power, Is not the only one I think is realistic.
Maybe changing Orb is going to make a big difference in the way Destiny 2 plays, or maybe it’s making things a little more annoying. It is difficult to guess at this time. We’ll find out more soon when Bongi leaves more details and when the Witch Queen actually falls. But I doubt it’s a change that anyone would have thought of in about two months.
But hey, maybe I’m wrong. Feel free to discuss with me in the comments below – I’m definitely interested in some reasonable steps to take on the situation, especially when I pay some attention to the construction work, I know there are many There are people who are very skilled. That said, I will talk about your Witch Queen predictions, your hive lore deep dive thoughts, and your Oryx friend’s dream dreams of history.
