After what has seemed like forever we have finally got a new Bungie Weekly Update. This is the first update of the new year and although it didn’t answer all of our questions it did answer some concerning Crota’s End. First of all the hard raid they didn’t give us a set time when it would drop because apparently they’re still working on finishing it. Bungie made the following statement about the hard raid “Hard Mode for Crota’s End is going through the final few stages of deployment. It’s almost ready. As soon as we have a concrete date to share, we’ll set it in stone so you can assemble your crew for that first run, or so you can find the time to tune into the streams and vicariously witness the madness and make note of the new and necessary strategy updates.” Although I’m a bit disappointed that its not ready I am glad they are taking their time to finish it and hope we don’t have to worry about people using exploits to get our hard earned rewards. This brings me to the next part of their update they have fixed multiple exploits players were abusing in Crota’s End. Here’s a list of the fixed exploits

Pit Encounter
Removed the physics impulse caused by exploding lanterns.

Bridge Encounter
Players will now be required to cross the bridge in order to complete the bridge encounter.
Players will now be required to wait for the bridge to be completed prior to crossing with the sword.

Deathsinger Encounter
Fixed a rare case where the Shriekers would not spawn, preventing players from reaching the Deathsinger.

Crota Encounter
Two Swordbearers will no longer spawn at the same time at the outset of the encounter.
Crota will now recover from his kneeling state after a player quits.
Fixed a bug that allowed players to remove the “Presence of Crota” using a Radiance Warlock’s Fireborn ability.
Fixed a bug that made the Oversoul appear destroyed to some players in a Fireteam when it was actually still active.

The last part of the update is the one I find the most important the existing Pit treasure chest reward has been moved to killing Ir Yut, the Deathsinger. She now has a chance to drop Exotic weapons and armor, class pieces, and Radiant materials, the Pit treasure chest will now contain Radiant Materials. killing Ir Yut, the Deathsinger has to be the most challenging part of this raid and I found it ridiculous that you got no reward for it.

Bungie’s Crucible designers have a few things in the works as well the first is that the maps Asylum, The Anomaly, and The Burning Shrine will be added to existing Clash and Control playlist rotation, but the bigger one is that Iron Banner will return, with updated rewards, running from January 13th through January 19th.
