This week, Bungie made an announcement about their next project. It turns out that the game will be a new franchise and the first game in this series is slated for release later on in 2021.
Debate: What does it mean for Destiny going forward?
The “bungie help” is a weekly blog post from Bungie, the creators of Destiny. The Bungie Weekly Update is published every Thursday at 9am PST and covers everything from the latest updates to how players can get involved in the game.
The Vow of the Disciple World First race is the focus this week at Bungie.
What a whirlwind week we’ve had. It seems like we were just unveiling The Witch Queen yesterday, and now we’re on the verge of a World First raid race. Many of you have been looking forward to this weekend, methodically arranging your Power increases and collecting armfuls of food from supermarket shelves. The race will start in less than two days. Let’s get you caught up.

This is the peak of our endgame content if you’re new to Destiny or have yet to participate in a raid. Players from all around the globe are challenged to compete by solving perplexing puzzles while participating in intense battle in a variety of action confrontations. We’re not talking about a few foes here and there, but swarms of warriors wreaking havoc on players’ lives and time as they sprint to the finish line. We may anticipate the same with Vow of the Disciple, with numerous teams vying for victory against the final boss.
Let’s speak about the rules now. In Contest Mode, the World First race for Vow of the Disciple will take place. This is a one-of-a-kind variation of the raid that is only available for the first 24 hours and caps each Guardian’s Power level to provide an equal playing field. We said last week that 1530 Power is your goal, since this is the most Power your Guardian will be able to do against the adversaries you’ll be facing. Here’s a fast bulleted list for anybody chasing the World First title:
Timeline of the Vow of Disciple Race
- Start time is 10 a.m. Pacific on Saturday, March 5th.
- Ends at 10 a.m. Pacific on Sunday, March 6.
Mode of Competition:
For the entire 24 hours of the race, Contest Mode will limit all players at 20 Power below each raid encounter.
- Artifact power is turned on, however it only benefits players up to a maximum of 1530 power in contest mode.
To have a chance in each match, you’ll need to hit 1530 Power by Saturday.
Due to general difficulties, several gear items in the raid will be disabled for the length of contest mode, which may bring gameplay advantages. While these items may be used in other activities, their bonuses and usefulness will be canceled in the Vow of the Disciple Raid, with extra negative power level effects if equipped:
- Legendary SMG IKELOS SMG V1.0.2
- Legendary Imperial Needle Bow
- Exotic Machine Gun Grand Overture
- Exotic Rocket Launcher by Wardcliff Coil
- Armor & Mods
- Titan Exotic Gauntlets Wormgod Caress
- Titan Exotic Legs by Peregrine Greaves
- Glaive Artifact Armor Mod Suppression
- Note: If problems are discovered prior to the start of the race, more elements may be blocked. Keep an eye on @BungieHelp for the final list, which will be released on Saturday morning.
The World First squad will be the first to finish all encounters, plunder the last treasure, and return to orbit.
- Note: The six members of the fireteam who are present at the end of the final encounter will be deemed the victors and will receive raid World First title belts; any members of the fireteam who depart during earlier encounter completions will be disqualified.
The winners will be notified by email.
After a certification procedure, @DestinyTheGame – More information about it may be found further down.

Any players found to be breaking our Terms of Service or manipulating game content can be subject to suspensions or bans. Once we have record of a fireteam crossing the finish line, we’ll spend some time validating a clean Completion before announcing the World First fireteam via @DestinyTheGame on Twitter. Full rules and legal terms can be found here.
If you finish the Contest Mode edition of Vow of the Disciple inside the first 24 hours, you’ll get a special insignia to commemorate your triumph.

For some, Contest Mode will be the final test, but for others, it will be more enjoyable and exciting to see certain Destiny PvE legends take on the task. As participants go through the activity, we’ll be there with you in Twitch discussions and more. Check out if you’d want to see the race from a different perspective.

Take your time, socialize with your pals, and enjoy the raid at your leisure. As usual, we’re looking forward to seeing you all dig right in!
The Feedback Doesn’t Stop…
… And there’s no way we’d have it any other way. The crew has been gathering and absorbing player input since the release of The Witch Queen. The crew has noticed a few areas for improvement after spending some late hours playing the content with you guys. Some items take a little longer to correct because we want to make sure the solutions we make don’t cause new problems for us to resolve. However, the team has a strategy in place for Wellspring weapon drop rates, Ascendant Alloy drop rates for weapon manufacturing, and some general remarks on areas where future Gambit tweaking is being considered. Most of the following will be familiar if you follow Game Director Joe Blackburn on Twitter, but we always want to make sure information is accessible in numerous locations.
Weapon Drop Rates at the Wellspring
When you’ve finished The Witch Queen’s campaign and started the endgame, a new activity called The Wellspring arises in the Throne World. This is a fun six-player matchmade exercise that rotates between offensive and defensive varieties on a regular basis. Players may obtain four Throne World-themed weapons in The Wellspring, each with a different set of benefits to mix and combine for some unique combinations. Each of these weapons may be made, and some of them are necessary to continue through the Enclave’s Evidence Board tasks.
We’ll be raising the drop possibilities for both the regular and Deepsight Resonance variants of these weapons in a patch coming out next Thursday.
As you get deeper into the crafting game of The Witch Queen, you’ll begin to unlock Enhanced Traits for your weapons. These come at a bit of a cost, each requiring Alloys Ascendant. These currencies are meant to be of endgame rarity, coming from higher difficulty activities as you fine-tune your weapons through combat.
In addition to the changes mentioned above, we’ll be increasing your chances of receiving Ascendant Alloy through Master Wellspring Completions — not just by the difficulty tier of the activity, but also based on your Completion level. This will mean higher chances at earning Alloys Ascendant for Gold and Platinum Completions, which can be earned by defeating Champions and completing the activity quickly. We will continue to monitor and adjust drop rates as the Season progresses.
Tuning the Gambit
While we don’t have any concrete plans to disclose at this time, the team wants to point out a few areas that we’re keeping an eye on:
We appreciate all of the comments we’ve received since launch, and we’ll update you in a few weeks after we’ve gathered more data and feedback to drive our future moves.
Hard Light is a prime gaming reward.
Hard Light, how I adore you. In Destiny, you were one of the first Exotics to drop for me. With every shield burst and opponent eliminated, your bullets ricochet through the tunnels of my heart, delivering exhilaration. It’s been a lot of fun having foes explode with prolonged damage while in Void mode, thanks to the Seasonal Artifact mod’s Volatile Rounds.
Despite the cheesiness of my love letter, this is a fantastic chance to present Hard Light to fresh members of the community. This Exotic will be accessible for the next three weeks via

DISABLED ENHANCED PULSE MONITOR TRAIT
The Enhanced Pulse Monitor trait has been deactivated due to a bug.

REWARDS FOR WELLSPRING ARMOR
If you don’t get any prizes during the Wellspring action, be sure to claim any available armor from Fynch, the Throne World merchant. After claiming this armor, prizes from the Wellspring action should drop appropriately.

Movies. We adore them. The Destiny 2 community understands how to give the goods, whether it’s huge PvP takedowns or wonderfully designed cinematic experiences of pure joy. We’ve got a neat little potpourri of videos for this week’s MotW homage, with The Witch Queen launch week in the rearview mirror and the road ahead looking ever so bright (b-because the Light, get it?).
Our first video is a funny contrast between our Ghost in the Forsaken DLC and our Ghost now with The Witch Queen, since life may be difficult at times and not everything has to be taken seriously. Bonus points for the blushing, which is just lovely.
The second selection is one that we had intended to show off last week, but better late than never! With a piece called Dynasty, My Name Is Byf brilliantly recreated the Destiny experience. Enjoy!
A Tale of Two Ghosts is this week’s film of the week.

Sam: In case you weren’t aware, we like getting tagged in your AotW and MotW entries. Each piece’s ability and ingenuity are incredibly wonderful, and we adore how much you like this game. (One of my favorite aspects is the range of materials utilized!) So, keep them coming, and here’s this week’s Art of the Week!

So many things to do, so little time…
We appreciate you joining us for another TWAB! While I’m looking forward to the raid race on Saturday, I’m also looking forward to getting back on track with my sleep regimen. Thanks in part to the Legendary campaign and some tasty narrative information to chew on, I’ve been staying up later than usual this week.
If you haven’t already, I strongly advise you to start working on the Season of the Risen questline this week. It’s fascinating to learn more about the backstories of individuals we know and love… even if they might be a little grim.
Before we go, I’d want to thank everyone who has contributed to our Game2Give charitable program. Many of you joined our stream yesterday and kept the contributions coming in, helping us reach our fundraising targets in under an hour! We’ve finally revealed the “Where TWAB?” shirt, which is presently available for pre-order on the Bungie Store. The Bungie Foundation will get 10% of profits from the Where TWAB? T-shirt.
