Since the release of [url=https://www.bungie.net/en/Explore/Detail/Update/46536]Destiny 2 Update 18.104.22.168[/url], we’ve been monitoring player feedback concerning the Masterworks. We’d like to give you a list of items that’s on our list to address. We don’t have a specific date for when these changes would take place, but we’d like to give insight as to what teams at Bungie are aiming to accomplish: [b]Player acquisition:[/b][quote]• We’re implementing a new mechanism that we can use to limit long dry spells in Masterwork drops due to bad RNG. • We will also be looking at adding some guaranteed sources of Masterworks, but we are working on a broader plan to improve prestige activity rewards and it might wait until then. • We’re watching overall drop rates and usage over the holiday and will adjust drop rates and material costs as needed.[/quote] [b]Masterwork Inventory Management[/b] [quote]• We’re planning a fix for Masterwork Cores not going to your postmaster if you’re full on Consumables. • To help prevent accidental loss of Masterwork Cores, we're extending the dismantle timer to give players a larger window to stop the process.[/quote] [b]Stat Bonuses[/b] [quote]• Right now, the stat bonuses are small tweaks intended for players who want to optimize very deeply. We’re watching feedback and are excited to adjust or add more stat bonuses in the future. Once we have more information, we’ll share our plans with you.[/quote] Additionally, the in-game UI currently doesn’t have a good way to show all of the possible stat rolls. Here is the current list of Stat Bonuses that can roll per weapon type: [quote][b]Auto Rifle[/b] +5 Range +10 Magazine +10 Reload +10 Handling [b]Fusion Rifle[/b] +5 Stability +10 Reload +10 Handling [b] Grenade Launcher[/b] +5 Stability +10 Reload +10 Handling +5 Blast Radius [b]Hand Cannon[/b] +5 Stability +10 Magazine +10 Reload +10 Handling [b]Pulse Rifle[/b] +5 Range +10 Magazine +10 Reload +10 Handling [b]Rocket Launcher[/b] +10 Reload +10 Handling +5 Projectile Speed +5 Blast Radius [b] Scout Rifle[/b] +5 Range +10 Magazine +10 Reload +10 Handling [b]Shotgun[/b] +5 Stability +10 Reload +10 Handling [b]Sidearm[/b] +5 Stability +10 Magazine +10 Reload +10 Handling [b]Sniper Rifle[/b] +5 Range +10 Reload +10 Handling [b]SMG[/b] +5 Range +10 Magazine +10 Reload +10 Handling [b]Sword[/b] +10 Magazine +5 Impact[/quote] [b]Masterwork Armor[/b] [quote]• We have begun plans to add Masterworks to Armor as well. • The Armor bonuses will be more modest than the Orb generation on Weapons (in part because you have five equipped at once), but at minimum we want to provide a much requested mechanism to change the Armor stat type.[/quote] [b]Weapon and Armor Mods[/b] [quote]• We don’t have a firm ETA yet, but feedback on Armor and Weapon Mods has been heard! • At minimum, we are looking to ease inventory pressure (ex: collapsing per-slot or per-class Mods) • We’re also seeking to make Mods a more meaningful part of your loadout decisions.[/quote] If you have feedback for Masterworks or Mods, feel free to sound off! Post a thread in the [url=https://www.bungie.net/en/Forums/Topics?pNumber=0&tg=Destiny2]#Destiny2[/url] or [url=https://www.bungie.net/en/Forums/Topics?pNumber=0&tg=Feedback]#Feedback[/url] forums to share your thoughts. We’ll have more in the coming year to talk about. Stay tuned. Cheers, -dmg04
Why aren't exotics automatically masterworks? Or at least give them a perk for orbs on multikills also like the masterworks... To be honest, why aren't exotics feeling very exotic? Too easy to get and nothing to make them feel any more powerful or useful than anything else in the game. Please do something with exotics to give them that feel of power and uniqueness. Incorporate exotics into strikes so that there are reasons to use all the exotics, as well as reason to do the strike. Also, we need new exotics and new weapons. NOT RESKINS! There are so many ideas around for really good weapons, including exotics. The only reskin I wanna see is the hung jury, but I'm fine without it, as long as we get new weapons! The possibilities are endless for this game, and it's sad to see the lack of leadership and effort that was put into it. Especially after 3 years of recorded data towards making the game what WE all wanted. Why did the skill tree get basically nerfed? It was better before when you could change your abilities/play style as necessary for encounter/enemy. That seems pretty fair and balanced. Now it's very dull and lackluster. We need to see vast improvements in the D2 game. If we don't, I fear this game will die out faster than Bungie can come out with content. That said, I have every exotic in game, both armor and weapons for all characters. I have completed everything except weekly milestones each week, but even all those for all characters get done within a day or 2 and aren't challenging or fun. So my question is, what else is there? A faction rally or Iron Banner week, woo... That's if it's not cancelled for some ludacris reason. Hell trials was shut down due to an emote. Now we have Nova glitch. We have missed faction rallies and I believe IB and all we get is a unfufilling response with nothing being done to ensure bugs or glitches are fixed/removed and we have the content as well. That's not a good business model to compare what to come will look like. From lack of content, to the content not being fun or rewarding, to the cashgrab, this game is trending down and needs a big overhaul sooner than Bungie plans. We can't wait over 2 or 3 months for a DLC that dissapoints. We just can't have that Bungie. We need the biggest overhaul and DLC ever or it's done for this game. On that note, it really needs to be epic. We need to remember it, and get the feeling of accomplishment, and be rewarded properly. Make this game unique again. New art, new gear, new weapons, new enemies, new PvP modes, new worlds, new PvE arenas, new raid lair, new raid/raid content, new missions, new exotic quests(D1 style), new subclass, subclass customization, shader system, shader dismantle, masterworks improvements, new forge weapons, sparrow racing, fly your ship, and so much more could be done to improve this game.
