The release of the Forsaken Expansion for Destiny 2 is quickly approaching, only being a few short weeks away. Information on how some of the systems, such as power levels, are going to be updated in Year 2 has been coming out and Bungie has now given an update to how Clan XP will be changing.
A brief breakdown was given by the Destiny 2 developer about how clans are being updated and one of the areas mentioned was in regards to earning XP. Once fans start playing Forsaken, they will want to visit Hawthorne, the NPC who currently hands out clan engrams for activity completion and personal XP. She will now have three bounties that will earn clan XP that can be done either solo or as part of a fireteam and are updated daily.
Some diehard players who will be able to complete those initial three dailies quickly may be wondering what else she will have in store. Luckily, more of these bounties will unlock once the new level cap of 50 is hit. Three new bounties will be added and while the first three can be done solo, these new ones will require a fireteam of clanmates to complete. They will, however, reward players with a larger amount of clan XP than the other bounties do. On top of these bounties, new clan perks will also be available, with some examples given being:
- Rank 3: Increased resilience when you’re in a fireteam with clanmates.
- Rank 5: Grants a chance to receive additional Etheric and Baryon resources when collecting them in the Reef.
- Rank 6: The weekly clan milestone also grants a Masterwork Core.
Of course, the Clan system and power levels won't be the only things that will be seeing a change when Forsaken drops and Year 2 starts. Some systems are going to be simply removed from the game altogether. One of these that will be getting cut is the Token system. Players will still be able to turn the tokens they have in for reputation, but tokens will no longer be given out as rewards. Instead, destination materials will serve as an upgrade and reputation currency.
Fans looking forward to playing the new content and all the accompanying updates won't have much longer to wait, as September 4th is just over two weeks away. In the meantime, Bungie is still providing players with normal weekly updates and challenges to complete. Not only that, but a secret quest in memoriam of Cayde-6 will be available for fans to complete prior to the launch.
Destiny 2 is now available for PC, PS4 and Xbox One with the Forsaken Expansion launching on September 4th, 2018.
