Bungie Announces Phasing out of Destiny Commendations and Next Iron Banner

Destiny is to receive a new update when House of Wolves hits, and with it is coming a few changes. One of the more notable ones is that Bungie will be getting rid of Commendations — a unique currency that was earned through levelling up Crucible ranks of Vanguard Commendation and was used to purchase new weapons and gear. “Essentially, they’re going away,” David Dague, Bungie Community Manager, stated in the developer’s weekly update. “You’ll no longer need them to acquire new weapons or gear. If you have a bunch of them stockpiled, you can burn them for reputation. Gaining reputation will speed you toward your next promotion, thus earning you another reward package. To prosper and equip yourself with new stuff, just earn Marks!”

But that’s not all that’s in store for Destiny players. The next Iron Banner was also announced, and the date was pushed back due to Bungie wanting to keep an eye on “the impact that Update 1.1.2 would have on the Crucible.” It kicks off on April 28th at 10AM PST and players will be able to get some new class Helms from Lord Saladin.
