Reworks to exotic weapons and the new exotic masterwork system have been highlights of the new Destiny 2: Warmind expansion. Guardians who enjoy hunting for the various catalysts will find their searches a touch easier in a future update, as Bungie has plans to increase drop rates.
According to a community manager on the Destiny 2 Reddit, Bungie will implement slight adjustments to drop chances for Strike catalysts in update 1.2.3. Additionally, there will be a minor increase to the drop rate of the Skyburner’s Oath Catalyst that is found in the Leviathan Raid. The developer wanted to do something to make catalysts appear more often, but not too often, as that would remove the need for players to continue engaging in Strikes and Raids. In the post, it is noted that getting the highest score in Prestige Nightfalls will continue to be the best chance to obtain Strike catalysts.
As for what else is around the corner, the next major expansion, Forsaken, will be bringing a ton of changes to the game. Bungie previewed one of those changes in their recent weekly blogpost, where the new Collections feature was detailed.
Essentially, the Collections feature will help Guardians keep track of all the items they’ve obtained during their travels, not unlike the way the collection system in the game currently works. The major difference being that it tracks all of the non-consumable items players have had in their inventory since Warmind; this includes shaders, as they are not considered consumables, as well as ships, ghost shells, and sparrows.
Bungie is still figuring out costs for purchasing items through Collections, which many assume will be more than the standard Glimmer. However, it has been confirmed that players looking to purchase Eververse items through Collections will need to throw down some Bright Dust to do so.
For those who enjoy Destiny lore, it was recently discovered that a major hint to the story of Forsaken has been hidden right under Guardians’ noses since the Curse of Osiris expansion. A secret message was decoded from the lore tab of the Telesto Exotic Fusion Rifle, which refers to Uldren Sov and his future misdeeds.
