A new update for Destiny 2 has been launched and it resolved a lot of issues, including Ascendant Alloy purchases and the Wellspring activity.

Ascendant Alloy is a pretty rare resource used for applying enhanced traits or unlocking weapon catalysts. There are many ways to acquire it, such as playing the Wellspring activity or running the weekly Campaign mission. Players can also purchase some from Master Rahool in the tower, which is what most people do.

There was an issue where the weekly limit for Ascendant Alloy purchases was not resetting as intended. But it has now been resolved, thanks to Hotfix Moreover, the developers have added a one-time purchase of two Ascendant Alloys for the price of one.

The patch fixes some issues concerning the Wellspring activity as well. For instance, the issue where players are not receiving rewards if they haven’t picked up any armor from Fynch in the Throne World has been addressed.
