Will the Destiny 2 Leviathan Prestige Mode be Worth it?

The Leviathan Raid already tests the limits of Guardians

But what Bungie’s got planned next will put them all to shame in an instant…or so Bungie is telling us.

So we’ve got about a month of Destiny 2 under our belts, but apparently, Bungie thought that the hardest content to play in the game wasn’t quite hard enough. The Leviathan Raid, which we’ve been enjoying for a couple weeks now, is going to be getting a harder mode in an update next week. The new mode called “Prestige” is something that Bungie is apparently very proud of, as they’re saying that they don’t expect everybody to be able to beat it, and those who do end up overcoming the odds, they’ll be cherished like the gods of old.

But it isn’t the loot that Bungie is dangling in front of us this time, there’s no shiny gun hanging on a string at the end of it all. No, instead of progressing our character which we’ve spent hours grinding to perfect, we’ll be getting “unique rewards to help you shine” as Bungie put it. What does that mean exactly? Well, there’s only one thing that I can think of that isn’t a randomly generated piece of gear,


Because what else would you want at the end of something that’s supposed to have been impossible to beat? After a nice long day of beating the s**t out of some space monsters, you come home to a nice warm bottle of boring cosmetics that only serve to pretty up the fact that all your loot is random.

But ok, maybe it’s not the case, but the part about helping us “shine”, doesn’t that strike you as a bit cosmetic-y? I might not be the biggest fan of cosmetics, some people might actually really want a use-once shader or ornament which you can apply to your weapon or armor so you can just throw it out once the first DLC comes and there are better things to have.

But enough about that, because I can think of many other forms of reward that they could give such players who beat the hardest thing in the game. And I’m going to tell you what:

Do you want to know what I think would be pretty sweet to get? How about some buffs for your character, not for PvP, just a little something that helps you more in PvE. Like, what if they gave you an ability or something? Or maybe you get a random upgrade for your weapon or armor, nothing to necessarily progress your character or make you overpowered in any way, I guess what I really want is just another subclass to play with. Think about it, wouldn’t it be cool to have a secret subclass unlock once you beat the hardest thing in the game?

I guess what I’m trying to say is, I don’t care much for the cosmetics in this game, not enough to have them be the only reward for the Leviathan Prestige Raid. Whatever they have lined up though, I hope it’s worth the effort.
