Bungie is shutting the stone door on Destiny's infamous loot cave, the developer announced as part of an update on its official website earlier today. "In the last two weeks there have been many surprises, bugs, exploits, world firsts, and a whole lot of fun," the firm stated. "We think that now is a great time to step back and let you all know how we think that the game is holding up, and to talk about some changes that we are contemplating going forward."
As already alluded, the major tweak is to the so-called loot cave, which was shut down today as part of a hot fix. "Shooting at a black hole for hours on end isn't our dream for how Destiny is played," the company explained. "Our hope is that social engagement in public spaces is only one part of the Destiny experience. Expect changes soon which decrease the efficiency of cave farming and correspondingly increase engram drops from completing activities."
The studio's also making changes to exploits that have been uncovered in the ongoing Queen's Wrath event. Previously, dismantling gear unlocked here provided you with ascendent materials, which can be used to upgrade legendary gear. Furthermore, the firm's busy making balancing changes, as well as tweaks to social interaction, which will allow you to opt-in to voice chat during matchmade activities. You can peruse the full list of changes through here.
