"Some players in Destiny may find it impossible for them to level up past a certain point because of a bugged material, needed for upgrading legendary armor (which increases the Light level and thus increasing the character’s level)."
Great...I am a hunter who signed up with the Future War Cult. I was just getting close to being able to buy my first piece of legendary armor. I am rank 1 and halfway to 2. I'll have to switch to a different group, I guess. I really wanted the intelligence/discipline combo, but I suppose I could go intelligence/strength.
Or, y'know, not worry about it too much, keep gaining rep, and wait for Bungie to fix it and most likely compensate those players who needed the motes and not shards. We don't know how quick Bungie are going to be to fix these things, but considering it's already been acknowledged is a good sign. Doesn't seem worth ditching FWC, when you're nearly at Rank 2.
Join 'The New Monarchy'....for Strength/Intellect boosting, it's the best faction in the dang game!!!
Dead Orbit will rule all! :p
New Monarchy baby, add me on PSN MrChicagoWind (PS4)
Future War Cult for life!
I went with future warcult and never encountered this issue all armour I bought from them used ascendant shards
ascendent shards can be gained from dismantling legendary weapons/gear. 2 per item. Pretty easy and definitely not game breaking. All these articles that hate are because no one has played thoroughly or explored enough with FRIENDS to get all the info. :(
It's just Hunter armour which needs ascendant motes.
You aren't limited to just one faction, you can buy the accessory item from any of the 3, or all 3 at once.
Proper Zoolander issue here "One look... ONE LOOK!"
How is this possible? sounds more like a major F'up then a bug.
It is rather surprising that something so fundamental for this Faction was not picked up in testing...
its not. you get them from dismantling legendary armor/weapons. not game breaking. ALL THESE HATE ARTICLES ARE FROM THOSE WHO HAVE NO IDEA HOW TO DO THINGS PAST LEVEL 20
Hunter - Future War Cult material required is "Ascendant Mote", these don't exits and Bungie dev confirmed it's a bug. If you're a Hunter, don't buy stuff from Future War Cult until they patch it. So... 3 classes, 3 cults... dammit if I didn't pick a hunter... and pick Future War :(
i did the same. its ridiculous that this is even happening
Honestly the first time, despite all people say about this game, that I've thought negatively about Bungie as devs. How is this missed? There has to be coding that makes it read "motes" and not "shards". There literally is a requirement for some armor that doesn't exist LOL. No testers, devs, etc noticed this? How extensive was the testing? Makes me wonder what other little issues there are with the higher (it takes a good amount of playing to even be able to guy this gear) level items. Seems like Bungie didn't test all the way to Level 30 with every cult, class, items, etc.
They will have it fixed probably by tomorrow or the next day.
this is actually ridiculous. how can you program something to use something else that doesnt exist??
Most likely the item does exist but someone screwed up an entry in the loot tables that dictate how frequently something drops (if at all). It could be as simple as typo in a loot table somewhere that stopped the item being given out to the player. Sure, it could be something bigger - but I would hope (and imagine) that Bungie could adjust the loot tables for FWC to either sort out the drop rates for those Motes, or change the item ID entirely so it could use Shards or something else that actually exists!
in lue of fixing the bug, you are recommended to just avoid it. haha
DEAD ORBIT 4 LIFE!
Now I know, and knowing is half the battle! Because gee that would blow!!!!
I have no problem leveling up
So no other gaming news in the world but destiny its seems wow have never seen so many articles about a low scoring game was hoping for more Sunset news ,Forza and Halo silly me .
People are way too busy trying to farm in a broken game that wont let you level up, and give you an exotic bounty to brake down 10 rare fusion weapons but doesn't give you anything for 3 days straight. This really sucks. As much as I hated Halo's little shop of horrors story, at least it tried to tell you the story.
I am not seeing the part where this 'bug' is making it impossible for people to level up? This bug apparently only affects Hunter's who are trying to level up FWC gear. Considering you don't need to commit to any of the 3 factions, or the Vanguard, you are free to stop using FWC and use any of the other 3 factions..... Therefore it is a bug, but is not stopping anyone from leveling up. Sensationalist headline look to grab attention from the Destiny hype..... Pathetic.
