Future 2’s Vault of Glass raid opens Could 22nd


The Future 1 raid Vault Of Glass will return in Future 2 on Could 22nd, Bungie confirmed final evening. And so they have excellent news for individuals interested by attempting the ultra-hard raid race Problem Mode that is in impact for the primary day: you will not must grind an enormous quantity to succeed in its Energy cap. In truth, you may not must grind in any respect – it’s possible you’ll already be previous it. Given that onerous Future is a number of the finest Future, I actually do suggest giving {that a} go.

Final evening’s This Week At Bungie publish confirmed the Vault raid will open at 10am Pacific (6pm UK time) on Saturday the 22nd of Could. As is the best way, for the primary 24 hours it run with the Contest Mode guidelines which make the race for the World’s First title tougher. Principally, everyone seems to be forcibly underlevelled. However whereas current raid races have required a complete lot of grinding to succeed in the Energy cap, many gamers are already excessive sufficient for Vault Of Glass’s race: it is solely 1300 Energy. Mate I have been 1310 for weeks.

Glad to see much less Energy grind in Future. Subsequent season will increase the Energy cap far lower than common, solely by 10 to 1320, however I had nonetheless anticipated the raid race would discover a new approach to be unkind. Bungie cannot resist grind, y’know.

Bungie have some new challenges, thoughts. Bungie trace that whereas the raid’s story is identical, “it’s possible you’ll discover different variations” they usually “have made some updates to deliver this content material as much as Future 2 requirements.”. And since individuals broadly already know the way the raid works, the race will truly contain finishing it after which going again to finish it whereas ticking off an inventory of difficult Triumphs.

I am wanting ahead to the raid race. I do not anticipate to supply any competitors to severe raiders, however I do benefit from the Contest Mode. I’ve written earlier than about how exhausting Future is a few of my favorite Future, issues like raid races and Grandmaster Nightfalls. I’ve tried the previous couple of raid races and by no means even completed it in these first 24 hours, however had a grand previous time.

Season 14, which Bungie nonetheless confer with solely as “Season Of [Redacted]”, is because of begin on Could 11th. Its story continues to be a secret too, however assorted whispers say it is about Vex or SIVA. Eh, I’ve no religion in rumours myself. It can additionally deliver again Ada-1 to run Future 2’s new transmogrification system, which had been my most-anticipated characteristic for months – till Bungie revealed it is an enormous faff with a number of crafting supplies and grinding bounties and a seasonal cap and… god, I simply wish to play dress-up, why should you make it depressing?

The TWAB publish additionally famous some stability adjustments coming with the brand new season. Linear Fusion Rifles will probably be much less ineffective (although I do not know if it will make them truly helpful), 450rpm Auto Rifles are getting a wee buff, and short-range Fusion Rifles will probably be stronger. They’re additionally buffing a load of gun perks and mods, together with Hipfire Grip, Subsistence, Unrelenting, Sympathetic Arsenal, Dragonfly (they’re lowering the annoying delay which makes explosions usually not work), and No Distractions. The adjustments sound good. They’re additionally making Osmosis work with Stasis, so you may have a Stasis-shooting gun. See the publish for extra on every thing.
