Everything we learned from today's Destiny: The Taken King livestream - all the news here

With so many Destiny: The Taken King articles covering wagon loads of information, we thought we'd post everything in one place for you.


Today's livestream dealt with Strikes, Artifacts and Subclasses. We also got a separate look at the expansion's first mission, The Coming War.

Destiny: The Taken King Subclass skills, Artifacts outlined for Hunter, Warlock, Titan

This post takes a look at some skills Hunter, Titans and Warlocks can use when playing the new Subclasses. I think I got the Subclass names right. I probably didn't, but the grenade bits are spot on.

This is your first mission, should you choose to accept it. Well, you'll probably have to.

Strikes in Destiny: The Taken King will be less monotonous due to varying set-ups

Strikes will be a bit different each time you play them. This should make you more willing to jump in over and over again. Plus, the bosses in the events will drop specific gear you can't get anywhere else. This means you can show other players just how badass you are just by sporting particular armor.

Here’s a closer look at Destiny: The Taken King’s Artifacts

Other MMOs call them trinkets or jewelry, but in Destiny, they are called Artifacts. We got a look at one for the Hunter, Titan, and Warlock today. One is a ring, one looks like a pocket item and a there was also a bracelet. Nothing makes you feel better than wearing a little bling-bling.

You can re-watch last week's livestream through our previous post, and a news roundup from the previous stream can be found through here.

Another livestream airs next Wednesday and it will focus on public events, rewards and The Court of Oryx.

Destiny: The Taken King is out September 15.
