New Iron Banner event started on November 18th, 2014. Destiny fans can enjoy this special Crucible event for a limited time until November 24th. Unlike the common Crucible matches, Iron Banner matches have no limits, and players with better gear and weapons will have an advantage over those less-equipped. Only players Level 20 and above can lead a Fireteam of six Guardians in the Iron Banner. Guardians lower than Level 20 can accompany their more powerful friends at their peril.
Iron Banner Tips
Your DEFENSE rating affects how you take damage. Your ATTACK rating affects how you inflict damage.
Before rushing into Iron Banner match visit Lord Saladin and the bounty vendor in the Tower, and take new bounties related to the Iron Banner playlist.
Winning a match earns you reputation, and losing a match earns you a token. Collect up to five tokens and cash them in upon your next victory.
Equip the Iron Banner emblem, shader and class item as soon as you can, it will increase your Iron Banner rep earnings by 30% in total.
If you are wearing a faction class item you’ll earn reputation for that faction instead of Iron Banner faction.
There are 5 Iron Banner Ranks this time. For Rank 1 you have to collect 100 Iron Banner Reputation points, for Rank 2 – 1200 reputation points more, then 2400 more for ranks 3,4,5.
If your team controls 2 points, DO NOT go cap the 3rd point, because this way you control where your enemies spawn (they’ll spawn only near 3rd point).
Objectives work as multipliers to your kill points. You get no points for simply holding objectives.
Lower-Level Players should follow around higher level player in your team. This way you will get plenty of assists and kill off the guys they didn’t finish.
Tempering buff costs 1 mote of light for 12 hour Iron Banner rep boost and it activates immediately!
When you break down Iron banner armor you’ll not get ascendant shards.
