Destiny hot fix ruins the Vault of Glass Templar Cheat Strategy
Destiny has been updated with a new hot fix that plugs a new hole in the exploitative Vault of Glass raid.
Many prefer to cheese the encounter by clustering on a far away platform and sniping. For most of the battle, the Templar’s attacks can’t reach players; there’s no need to worry about harpies; and because everyone is together, it’s safe to let the Oracles sing on and cleanse regularly instead.
Sadly, Bungie has decided this will not do, and has made small changes to the encounter ensuring you’ll have to do it the hard way.
