Destiny 2: Season of Opulence Exotic Nerfs

Published

on

Destiny 2: Season of Opulence is set to arrive next month and Bungie is focusing on nerfing a number of exotics to change things up as we approach the next season.

Destiny 2: Season Opulence – Weapon Changes

Whisper of the Worm

Bungie is removing the ammo generation ability to increase the effectiveness of all other Snipers that don’t have an endless ammo supply.

  • White Nail pulls ammo from reserves rather than creating it
  • Reserve ammunition increased to 18 (without ammo reserve perks)

Sleeper Simulant

  • Reduced ricochet/bounce damage on boss combatants
  • Modified precision behavior—total damage is unchanged, but non-precision shots are significantly more forgiving

Lord of Wolves

Release the Wolves activating on every kill made it difficult to control ammo consumption. Players will be able to swap between the two states to control the output, while also reducing its output slightly.

  • PvE damage reduced by 20%
  • Release the Wolves perk has been reworked:
    • No longer triggers automatically on kill
    • This effect is now triggered by holding reload, similar to “The Fundamentals” on Hard Light and Borealis
    • PvE damage and range bonuses on this effect has been removed and replaced with a universal damage bonus instead

Ace of Spades

The number of perks on the weapon, combined with the semi-permanent effect of Memento Mori gives the weapon too many advantages. Memento Mori will now end when you stow the weapon.

  • Memento Mori now ends if the weapon is stowed
  • The PvP damage bonus of Memento Mori was slightly reduced to prevent two-tapping Guardians while Vengeance (One-Eyed Mask) was active
    • Specifically, you need four resilience to survive this
  • Memento Mori is active for six shots again (up from five)

Super-Generating Exotic Armor Changes

  • Skull of Dire AhamkaraOrpheus Rig, and Phoenix Protocol now receive Super energy back with diminishing returns, making it rarer to get a full Super back
  • Shards of Galanor and Ursa Furiosa had their Super gain caps reduced to be in parity with other Super Exotic changes
  • Gwisin Vest had its energy reduced from 15% to 8% for killing one to two Guardians
    • Still scales up similar to before when killing three or more Guardians
    • PvE energy return remains similar to before

World of Warcraft

A pair of new playable races are heading to the World of Warcraft in a brand new, free update called Visions of N’Zoth.

Starting off are the Vulpera, which is a race of fox people that many players will recognize as non-playable race in the Battle of Azeroth expansion. The race will become available after maxing out their associated faction reputation and completing a quest.

Along with the Vulpera are the Mechagnomes, a robotic looking version of the standard Gnome race. This race can be unlocked with the release of update 8.3, which is looking to be quite the hefty update.
