OPPALENCE! You. Earn. EVERYTHING.
The Destiny 2 Season of Opulence will bring huge changes to the way that Enhancement Cores work within the game, developer Bungie has detailed.
Taking to a new blog post, Bungie explained that the current system of infusion was made to create a meaningful “feeling of progression” using materials that were scarce within the game’s economy. Bungie’s since admitted that a requirement for (limited) Enhancement Cores as infusion material creates a “negative experience” that it wants to change.
“We’re constantly monitoring the infusion economy to see what kind of impact it has on gear usage,” Bungie wrote “We keep a close eye on the amount of infusion materials being earned versus how many are being used and will continue to make adjustments as needed.
“To that end, we’ll be making a change in Season of Opulence with the goal of providing more access to Enhancement Cores.”
One change means that Bungie will remove Scrapper Bounties altogether, which used to randomly drop when players were dismantling items. They’ll be replaced with a number of Daily and Weekly Bounties that are purchasable with Gunsmith materials. These new bounties will provide reliable access to Enhancement Cores and easier infusion.
“Our hope is that this increased access and control over Enhancement Core acquisition will help improve the balance of materials being earned vs. materials being used,” Bungie continued. “As always, we’ll be continuously monitoring this item economy, along with your feedback to assess its effectiveness.”
Destiny 2 Season of Opulence kicks off in June across Windows PC, Xbox One and PS4. If you don’t get what our subtitle is all about up there, we humbly point you towards a fantastic RuPaul’s Drag Race clip below.
