Destiny Hotfix Coming Next Week To Nerf The Skolas Encounter

Bungie has announced a new hotfix for Destiny that will make on of the most toughest boss fights a little less difficult. The boss fight in question is the Skolas encounter.

While some players managed to blast their way through Skolas in minutes, others have found it frustrating. Bungie acknowledged this problem in the latest Bungie Weekly Update.

Developers announced a few changes that we’ll be seeing for the Skolas Boss fight. Creative Director Christopher Barrett announced the following changes that will help us with the Skolas Boss fight.

  • New Modifier combinations (Arc, Void, and Solar Burn will be removed)
  • Boss health is reduced (to compensate for the lack of burn)
  • Minions will spawn at predictable health intervals
  • Minor adjustment to the unit makeup of the combatant waves

Skolas is about to get a shorter life sentence. To ensure that he’ll still have a fighting chance, there will be some more skulls for you to juggle. Your battle with the final boss changes next week
