    The latest update for Destiny has arrived alongside the patch notes, and unfortunately there's no launch--at least yet--of a new Halloween event for this year. There is, however, one key point to make right away: If you've been saving Engrams, don't rush to decrypt them just yet.

    Bungie announced last week that this update increases the maximum Light level, and along with it, the maximum Light level of Engrams and various activity rewards. However, changes to Light above 385 won't go into effect until the Heroic version of the Wrath of the Machine raid goes live today at 2 PM PT / 5 PM ET.

    Once Heroic mode goes live, the maximum Light level, Exotic Engrams, and rewards from a handful of activities will rise to 400. A full breakdown of the new Light levels are as follows.

    Activities

    • The SIVA Strike Playlist will now drop rewards up to 365 Light
    • The Heroic SIVA Strike Playlist will now drop rewards up to 385 Light
    • Archon's Forge can now drop rewards up to 385 Light
    • Archon's Forge can now drop Ghosts and Artifacts up to 400 Light
    • Trials of Osiris, Iron Banner, Crucible, and Strike Hoards will now provide drops up to 400 Light
    • Wrath of the Machine, Trials of Osiris, and Iron Banner will now attempt to reward higher Light items on average
    Packages

    • Vanguard, Crucible, and Faction packages will now provide drops up to 390 Light
    • Increased chance of Artifacts from Crota's Bane Reputation Packages
    • Increased chance of Ghosts from New Monarchy, Dead Orbit, Future War Cult, Vanguard, and Crucible Reputation Packages
    Engrams

    • Rare Engrams will now decrypt up to 365 Light
    • Legendary Engrams will now decrypt up to 385 Light
    • Exotic Engrams will now decrypt up to 400 Light

    Update 2.4.1 also fixes a number of bugs and makes various economy changes. SIVA Key Fragments will now always drop from boss kills in the raid, even after you've completed the raid for that week. One fragment will drop from bosses in Normal mode, with two dropping from those in Heroic.

    There are several changes to items from previous events. Horn Relays are no longer used to upgrade Rare horns from Sparrow Racing League and can now be discarded, which will earn you 15 Silver Dust. (You'll also no longer get a Horn Relay by dismantling the Gjallar Horn.) And many items--Flimsy Masks, Gifts of the Lost, Crumples Masks, and Rare sparrow horns--have been removed. If you have any Paper Glue lying around from last year's Festival of the Lost, it'll turn into one Silver Dust.

    Two new collections have been added: the Holiday collection lets you reclaim Festival of the Lost masks, while the Sparrow collection lets you do the same with Legendary sparrow horns. Class-specific shaders like Surfbreaker and Mercurial Dawn now show up in the Shader collection for all classes.

    Also of note, three pieces of Exotic armor--the Warlock's Astrocyte Verse and Ophidium Aspect, and the Titan's Thagomizers--are no longer exclusive to Rise of Iron.

    You can check out the full patch notes below. The update is live now on PS4 and Xbox One.
