[i]Edit: These changes will go live with tomorrow's patch. The patch will be available at 9:30am PST. [/i] There has been some great feedback about the Silver Dust Economy. Here is a preview of what is coming. [quote]Some changes are coming to Eververse and you'll see these begin to roll out in small steps, beginning with an upcoming patch. We are currently working on several changes to the Silver Dust economy to improve the player experience. We want to ensure that players who are completing Rise of Iron’s pinnacle challenges feel rewarded for their success. With this patch Trials, Wrath of the Machine, and Iron Lord Armor Ornaments will no longer require Silver Dust to apply. The Silver Dust requirement for applying Exotic Weapon Ornaments will remain, as the Silver Dust required for application is provided by the Radiant Treasure box. Year 1 and Year 2 Iron Banner armor found in Dusty Iron Engrams and on activity completion of Iron Banner matches was incorrectly dismantling into Legendary Marks. With the patch, these items, when dismantled, will now yield 1 Silver Dust. These changes are being made to promote a positive player experience as well as accommodate future changes and balances to the Eververse and Silver Dust economy which we will reveal in our winter release.[/quote]
Seriously, the amount of salt in this thread is both insane and totally ignorant. Firstly, the comment section of a post is possibly the worst place to write your complaints, and secondly the vast majority of the people commenting do not seem to understand Bungie's situation right now. Before you go and post a spite filled reply let me finish here. Let's set the record straight on a couple things. First off, the live team does not do weapon balances. You're asking the engineers to also be the architects and expecting a masterpiece of both. Secondly, on the topic of slow patches, depending on which reports you follow, up to NINETY FIVE PERCENT of Bungie is currently working on Destiny 2. If my memory serves Bungie has around 700 employees, that means you are asking 35 people to push out a detailed monthly patch, run live events AND generate content. And that is counting every employee as a programmer. Have some patience, as a sniper I personally feel very weak in the Crucible right now, but Bungie has player data that we don't, and maybe it will take a bit longer for a patch but that is a sacrifice to ensure that Destiny 2 is a better product than Destiny 1, and a year from now you will likely be very glad that sacrifice was made. I'm not trying to be a Bungie poster child here, and to say I'm tired of some of the issues in the game is an understatement, but I'm willing to appreciate the difficulty of Bungie's current status and give them a bit of time, just give it a rest. As a side note, being in Computer Science, a patch like this would have been extremely simple to put through and requires all but no testing, one person probably could have done this in a day, very different from balance changes.
