Destiny Patch 1.0.2 Will Make Some Changes to Engram Decoding for Good

By   /   Sep 27, 2014

Just recently, Bungie nerfed Destiny’s loot cave with a hotfix and with it stated that more changes will be coming soon. Now, Bungie has released a preview for an upcoming patch for its MMO shooter and RPG, Destiny.

Starting next week players will see big changes to engrams as they will always decode into their quality level or better including “materials or excotics”. Which means that legendary engrams will decode into legendary or better. Likewise, rare items will no longer decode into uncommon items and they will always be rare or better.

Keep in mind that according to Bungie, only engrams which drop after patch 1.0.2 are subject to these changes.

Cryptarch Changes 

Cayde-6 took the Cryptarch aside and showed him a sack of doorknobs. He decoded that mystery pretty quickly.

  • Legendary Engrams will always produce Legendary or better quality items, including Materials or Exotics
  • Rare Engrams will always produce Rare or better quality items
  • Rare engrams will have an increased chance to produce Legendary quality items

Furthermore, in addition to their existing rewards, Daily Heroics, Weakly Heroics and Vanguard: Tiger Playlist will now have rare and legendary engrams.
