Summary:

With this patch, we address some widely-discussed concerns with how Engrams are earned and claimed. Strikes have become more rewarding, and the rewards gained from them are more predictable. Also affected is the rotation of maps that appear in the Crucible.

Cryptarch

Legendary (purple) engrams will always produce a Legendary quality item or higher
Note: Legendary engrams that exist in your inventory will change to Rare quality items when the patch is applied. However, decoding these engrams will still produce the same results as before

Rare (blue) engrams will always produce a Rare quality item or higher

Chance for Legendary gear from blue engrams increased

Materials: Ascendant Shards and Ascendant Energy promoted to Legendary quality (from Rare quality)

Rewards

Rare (Blue) and Legendary (Purple) Engram drops added to the potential rewards for:

- Vanguard: Tiger Strike Playlist
- Daily Heroic Missions (first time per day)
- Weekly Heroic Missions (first time per week)

Known issues
- When selecting a higher difficulty for daily missions, XP Bonus not show in the reward display
- You will still get the XP bonus, you just won't see it in the UI

Crucible

- Reduced time limit on Bastion and First Light in Control and Clash from 15 to 12 minutes, bringing them in line with non-vehicle maps in those playlists
- Lowered weighting on Bastion and First Light in Control and Clash so they appear less often in those playlists

Pretty much the most important thing I read, too! Haha.

Viva la Crucible. I'm already having a ton more fun with the lowered weighting of these two maps. While I do enjoy them every so often for the good ole Sniper fests, it does get old quickly.

Since the patch I have not gotten one legendary engram. Even from ranking my cryptarch. Anyone else?

I haven't either but I have friends who have. It seems like they decreased the chance of finding Legendaries but it could just be a string of bad RNG.
