The Next Destiny Hotfix Makes Changes to Mythoclast, Atheon
Bungie has been hard at work on various patches and fixes for their recently released top seller Destiny. After they nerfed a bunch of loot caves and released an update to balance weapons, Bungie has shared their plans to revisit the changes made to the popular Excotic Vex Mythoclast Raid Weapon.
According to the patch notes of the upcoming hotfix for Destiny the following adjustments are taking place:
We are adjusting the base damage on Mythoclast. We are going to find a value that works for both PVP and PVE. In addition, we intend to raise Mythoclast’s attack value above and beyond the other exotics. Attack value dictates how much damage players deal to combatants and Mythoclast attack value being raised will make it more effective in PVE.
Also, Destiny will see some changes made to the Vault of Glass raid. From now on, the final boss known as Atheon will now longer fall from his ledge near his spawn point and players teleported by him will now be chosen randomly.
We’ve added ‘baby bumpers’ to areas where players could knock Atheon out of the environment.
Knocking a boss off a ledge is a bug. We will seek to address bugs like these as quickly as possible.
A change will take effect next week which fixes a bug with Atheon’s target selection. When using its Timestream ability, Atheon will select 3 players at random, instead of choosing the three players furthest from it
Bungie stated that we shouldn’t expect some of these changes to be implemented any time soon due to the company having a ‘more substantive update’ in the works which makes is hard to bring changes to live game at the moment.
