Today is the second day of the Iron Banner, which has been mostly fun despite their only being three maps in rotation (which is a dumb move one that hopefully Bungie changes).

Iron Banner is worth doing however, not just for the pinnacle bounties (which the tracked bug gave us two additional bounties to complete today), but because the armor that drops has been having a pretty high stat roll (got a helmet with no mod to drop at 61) and Saladin’s packages have the chance to give enhanced mods .

So while it can be frustrating, the Iron Banner is definitely something to farm this week as much as you can and enjoy 2x Valor and beginning at reset Friday, 3x Valor.

On with the reset…
