Destiny 2: Loreley Splendor Significantly Nerfed in Hotfix

Hotfix Twitter/@DestinyTheGame

Solar Titans relying on the Loreley Splendor helm will not be happy with the recent update for Destiny 2. That’s because Hotfix has nerfed this exotic so hard that Solar Titans might have to change their build as soon as they’ve updated their game clients.

Loreley Splendor is a Titan-exclusive exotic helm in Destiny 2 that grants a more intensified Restoration buff when standing on Sunspots. Restoration is a buff introduced in the Solar 3.0 rework, where players continuously regenerate their HP and shields over time. What’s cool about this buff is that it cannot be interrupted by taking damage, which means that players can survive most attacks when Loreley Splendor’s Restoration x2 is active.

That said, Loreley Splendor now grants x1 Restoration in Hotfix instead of x2. Because of this adjustment, the exotic helm is no longer appealing to use as it’s no different from the Sol Invictus Solar aspect as far as the Restoration buff is concerned.

While it is sad to see the Loreley Splendor nerfed to the ground, Hotfix does bring some important bug fixes, most notably to address issues with the King’s Fall raid and some weapons.

King’s Fall
  • Fixed issues where players could repeatedly die when revived during the Basilica and Oryx encounters while the encounter wipe happens.
  • Fixed an issue where the Overzealous Triumph requirement was unclear and could not be completed.
  • Fixed an issue where the selection of the rune during The Crux section of King’s Fall would prevent completion of the secret Deepsight weapon chest puzzle.
  • Fixed an issue where the King's Fall carries stat was not being incremented.
  • Fixed an issue where the following buffs and debuffs were missing icons:
    • Aura of the Unraveler
    • Aura of the Weaver
    • Unstable Light
    • Channeling Corrupted Light
  • Fixed an issue where the Vallhund Exotic ornament had an incorrect tooltip and was missing from the ornaments screen.
  • Fixed an issue where a shaped BxR-55 Battler didn't receive a Masterwork border when a player included two enhanced perks and an enhanced intrinsic perk.
  • Fixed an issue where Quicksilver Storm grenades could add permanent buffs to your character.
    • Quicksilver Storm has been re-enabled.
    • Telesto has been reprimanded.
  • Fixed an issue where Stormtrance's damage was not increasing over time while attacking.
  • Fixed an issue where Fists of Havoc could be activated while the player was in an active Ballistic Slam, resulting in a very, very... very long initial leap.
  • Fixed an issue where specific melee abilities (notably Shiver Strike and Thunderclap) were not activating at close range when using the Charged Melee keybind.

So, what can you say about the Loreley Splendor nerf?

Destiny 2 is available on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and PC.
