Destiny has been steadily rolling out new and interesting special events, but today’s looks like one of the best so far. The Iron Banner is a Crucible event that looks to mix up the Destiny formula. The event will run for an entire week, starting tomorrow and ending on October 14th. Check out all of the details below and “forge your legend in the fires of the Crucible”.
Forge your legend in the fires of the Crucible
The Iron Banner playlist is described as “Champions are born in battle. Enter a special Crucible playlist and wage war in a Fireteam of six Guardians. Prove your might and earn the respect of the Lords of Iron.” What is definitely the biggest change for this playlist is the fact that level advantages will be enabled. “Equip your most powerful gear. The Attack and Defense ratings for your weapons and your armor will be crucial to victory.” This means that all that grinding will actually pay off in PvP combat. Don’t even think about entering this playlist below level 20.
As has become custom with many of Destiny’s latest special events, there is also a new reputation to work on. There will be special Iron Banner bounties for you to take on. Completing them will raise your reputation with the Iron Lords, who will grant you access to new gear. Those rewards are as follows:
- Rank 1
- Unlocks Iron Banner Emblem and Shaders
- Emblem and Shader each provide stacking 10% boosts to Iron Banner reputation gains\
- Rank 2
- Unlocks Iron Banner Class Items
- Class Item provides stacking 10% boost to Iron Banner reputation gains
- Rank 3
- Unlocks Iron Banner Armor Items
- Unlocks additional Iron Banner Emblems and Shaders
Many of the items offered as a reward from The Iron Banner will be Legendary weapons and gear. These will be exclusive items, so if you don’t finish up those bounties you’ll probably have to wait a long time for Bungie to bring the playlist back.
