Crota's End hard mode has now been released. Along with this release, comes a post from Bungie, highlighting what you have to gain from this new challenge. Here are the details:
WEAPONSPrimary Weapons of every variety can be plundered from different encounters throughout the Raid. With the application of some loving care and Radiant Materials, each of them has the potential to reach a Maximum Attack rating of 331.“We will not go quietly.”“This is the shape and the point of the tooth: nothing has ever lived that will not die.”"The light of the will of Crota shines down like a vast and inverse sun.”“There was life, and He spoke unto it, and it was silent, and lived no more.”Don’t forget that Hard Mode is also the only place to obtain “Crux of Crota,” the final piece needed to upgrade the Eidolon Ally (the gun formerly known as Husk of the Pit) to its full, Necrochasmic glory.“Eternity is very close. Can you feel yourself slipping?”
That’s Bane of the Dark Gods, in orbit over its port of origin.When people see you fly this baby, they’ll say “You came in that thing? You’re braver than I thought…”
SHADERSFinally, there’s also a Hard Mode Exclusive color palette for your gear. It’s called Glowhoo. The first of you to earn it gets to show it off.
