Destiny’s Latest Patch Improves Loot Drops


I’m enjoying Destiny quite a bit, but I think even the most fervent fan of Bungie’s latest sci-fi adventure can agree that the loot system is downright broken. Luckily, 1.02 patch will address one the biggest problems.

Up until this latest patch, if your loot drop happened to be a legendary or rare engram, there as no guarantee that in fact it was a legendary or rare item. In fact, the odds were very high it as something completely useless. This latest patch guarantees that Legendary loot will always be a legendary, and rare items will always be rare, with increased probability that rare loot will actually be a legendary item as well. This still doesn’t address the nonsensical ways loot seems to be handed out in multi-player, but it’s a good start to fixing one of the many glaring issues Destiny has. I’d like to reiterate though that I really enjoy playing the game still and look for a column on Destiny later this month.
