Destiny's 1.2.0 Patch Now Live, Here's Everything It Does Empty

With its issues apparently resolved, Destiny's 1.2.0 patch--the one available for download since last week--has gone live, and we've got patch notes detailing its various changes and fixes.

While at the Tower, you can now trade in Ascendant and Radiant materials for Glimmer and Motes of Light by interacting with the Speaker. The commendation requirement for purchasing new gear has been removed, and any you might have can now be turned into 250 reputation gains with the Vanguard, Crucible, or various factions.

Other changes include moving the first Relic in Salvage mode so that it's in a more centralized location, and fixing various weapon issues.

The notes point out that there is currently an issue where Legendary Engrams will drop that aren't recognized by the Cryptarch--they'll be mistakenly turned into Shards. Bungie recommends you hang on to any of these new purple Engrams you're lucky enough to find until next week, when another patch,, is released. You'll find patch notes for that update--which also introduces the new connection recovery system--at the bottom of this post, beneath the 1.2.0 notes. goes live at around 10 AM PST on Tuesday, May 19, which is when Destiny's second DLC pack, House of Wolves, will be released. The expansion is included with Destiny's $35 season pass, and is also available on its own for $20.
