Destiny: House of Wolves gear upgrade paths will be revealed next week

Destiny developer Bungie will reveal new equipment upgrade paths during a livestream next week.


Destiny: House of Wolves will release on May 19, the developer announced last week, promising a full schedule of reveals over the next few weeks.

It also gave a broad outline of some of the things it will be discussing in detail, and although we're excited to learn about the Trials of Osiris and the Prison of Elders, we're massively psyched to learn about new equipment upgrade paths.

An image included in last week's update suggested we may soon be able to upgrade Legendaries to hit the new damage cap, like we can with Exotics at present. Can you imagine an upgraded Fatebringer or Vision of Confluence? Yes, please.


You won't need to imagine much longer, though. Bungie will reveal all during a livestream on Twitch at 11:00AM PT on April 22.

"Join us for a walking tour of the Vestian Outpost," community manager David "Deej" Dague said in a post.

"Meet the vendors with whom you’ll trade bravery for treasure. Learn about their motivations and objectives.

"Creative Director Christopher Barrett will be your guide. Special community guest Gothalion will ask the questions about what the next expansion to Destiny means for all of us."

Dague said the stream will address the following "burning curiosities":

  • Who will issue our new walking orders?
  • What do we stand to gain from this alliance?
  • What will happen to our existing gear?
  • Will we ever want to visit the Tower again? [Hint: Yes!]

This week's update also revealed that House of Wolves and associated patches will bring Destiny to version 1.2.0.
