House of Wolves is the next major DLC drop for Destiny and if a leak posted earlier today proves to be accurate, the content – previously rumored for a March release – won’t be available until May.

Watch on YouTube

Take all of the following for what it is, a rumor, until Bungie announces something official.
According to a post on Reddit by megamanexe4 who claims to have access the House of Wolves content, gear will have a maximum light level of 39.

This implies Vendor gear will once again make Raid gear redundant, but will allow players to attain a higher light level.

Weekly activities such as Nightfall will increase from level 30 to level 32, and in the thread you can see a screenshot of a level 32 Thrall in part one of the Moon Strike.

Per the post, House of Wolves also contains new crucible maps, and new strike and raid, and new armor.

After this was posted yesterday, Bungie’s community manager David Dague commented on the rumor, basically stating what everyone already knew: all of the above information is subject to change

“Bungie has yet to reveal the House of Wolves,” said Deej on the Destiny forums. “That means that anything you know about it can change. We have a team working on the experience and they have some exciting surprises up their sleeves.

“We reserve the right to overwrite anything you’re looking at right now. These placeholder items enable us to save room on your drive for actual future updates. You’ll all download them before it’s time to play.

“Any stats or assumptions about power or impact or handsomeness are months old, and do not reflect the things that we’re doing to adapt to what you’ve taught us about Destiny. There is a process here, and you’re a part of it.”

So there you have it. Some of this may stay, some may go, all may go. Again, wait for official word and have fun with the above information.
