Destiny players summoned for the Iron Banner

Bungie invites Destiny players to join the Crucible for a limited time event that will “test your power as a Guardian”: The Iron Banner. The event kicks off today October 7th, and ends next Tuesday, October 14th. Players will have to prove themselves in these new forged fires of the Crucible where your gear ratings will make all the difference. The Iron Banner was conceived as an “unbalanced” type of event unlike other competitive playlists in Destiny, where your ratings will work to your advantage if you have the skills to put them to good use. This is a fight of the strong, and winners will be awarded their hard earned rewards at battle’s end.

“Bring your deadliest weapons. Equip your sturdiest armor. The Iron Lords are seeking out the most powerful warriors who call the City their home. For those brave enough to fight (and to win), there will be new rewards to serve as a warning of their prowess in the arena.” Players will “wage war” in a six Guardians Fireteam where they will have to showcase their combat abilities. With all Level advantages enabled, having on the most powerful gear along with your highly rated weapons will be essential to claim your shot to victory. Special Iron Banner Bounties will prove useful in gaining reputation with the Iron Lords, so make sure you complete them. Lord Saladin shall be very pleased, and you will be rewarded accordingly with a fresh new gear.

The Iron Banner Reputation rewards and unlockables will be awarded as follows: Rank 1 tiers of players will be receiving The Iron Banner Emblem and Shaders. “Emblem and Shader each provide stacking 10% boosts to Iron Banner reputation gains.” Rank 2 players will be getting the Iron Banner Class Items – “Class Item provides stacking 10% boost to Iron Banner reputation gains.” Rank 3 privileged will receive Iron Banner Armor Items plus additional Iron Banner Emblems and Shaders. Exclusive Iron Banner rewards are the ones to keep track of, as Legendary weapons, armor and more items are on the table. So, good luck to all those Destiny players out there! May you emerge victorious from the fires of the Crucible!
