Here’s a preview of some of the changes coming in the update. Full patch notes will be posted on Tuesday:

UX/UI 

  • Updated the Director navigation header to a new style to make it more scalable.
  • Fixed a visual bug on the Title Screen when playing with a screen aspect ratio greater than 16:9.
  • Fixed a logic bug that would sometimes show inaccurate informational text on the Bungie Name Change screen after a player had changed their name via Bungie.net.
  • Improved the consistency with which PlayStation and Xbox platform rosters update the online status of platform friends.

Dares of Eternity 

  • Increased Strange Coins earned from the reward chest in Dares of Eternity from 1 to 3.
  • This does not affect the number of Strange Coins earned from Lightning Round chests.

Power and Progression 

  • Power Bands have been increased for the new Season:
    • Power Floor: 1350 (unchanged)
    • Soft Cap: 1510 (up from 1500)
    • Powerful Cap: 1560 (up from 1550)
    • Hard Cap: 1570 (up from 1560)
  • The Character Power Boost has been increased to 1510 with the new Soft Cap.

Vault Space 

  • Vault space has been increased by 100 (was 500, is now 600).
  • While we know this doesn’t enable players to save every single piece of loot in the game, the team was able to pull some strings and get a little more space for your vaults as they continue to investigate future solutions.

Xûr

  • Xûr’s inventory should no longer be different if players manage to find him at destinations shortly after the weekly reset happens on Tuesday.
  • He will still reappear with new gifts from the Nine when he returns at his regularly scheduled time on Friday.
  • While his will is not his own, he needs a break each week—no more working overtime.

Scorn 

  • Scorn sniper damage brought in line (reduced) with other combatant sniper weapons.
    • Spread of projectiles increased to reduce instances of multiple projectiles hitting players.

Smith’s Sentiment: I really, really wish they would just do away with the power level nonsense. It’s only purpose is to serve as a source of frustration. If you can’t make pinnacles guarantee a slot upgrade, then do away with it. Just do away with it anyway. It’s so tedious and unfun. Sorry, I’ll always hate it. Vault increase is now.
