Bungie details plans to fix the currently boring exotic armor pool


Like their recent change-up for exotic weapons

Bungie recently did a new pass on Destiny 2's exotic weapons, tuning them up so that people will actually use them outside of the few meta min-maxed items for high-end content. It was long overdue, but they left out a huge aspect of the re-tooling -- armor.

Yep, for the most part outside of very few pieces of gear like the Orpheus Rig (which pretty much rocked day one), armor is extremely underwhelming. That's going to change in update 1.2.3, as the Lucky Raspberry will now drastically enhance your arcbolt grenade output, the St0mp-EE5 boosts all jumps (instead of just high jumps), and the Young Ahamkara's Spine buffs tripmine grenades all across the board instead of proving a nominal upgrade.

Titans are getting ACD/0 Feedback Fence, Doomfang Pauldrons, and Dunemarchers buff, and Warlocks are getting enhancements for Starfire Protocol, Karnstein Armlets, and Crown of Tempests. It's a step in the right direction, but there's still a long way to go.

1.2.3 will arrive on July 17 among other additions, most notably a permanent 6v6 quickplay playlist that should have been added a week after launch.
