It looks like a new update will be released alongside the House of Wolves expansion for Destiny to make the competitive PVP side of the game more fulfilling.
In the latest Destiny weekly update, David Dague posted information about the upcoming changes. “Shortly before the hunt for the House of Wolves begins on May 19th, all players will download Update 1.2.0 for Destiny.”
"It will be another evolution for the experience you know.”
In update 1.2.0, some of the most exciting changes will be applied to the Crucible. For example, players will now have the chance to be awarded with Legendary items at the end of a Crucible match. The amount of reputation and marks earned within a Crucible match will also be doubled.
The Iron Banner will undergo some changes - Some exploits will be fixed and a new currency called Etheric Light can be purchased from the Iron Banner vendor. Players will be able to use Etheric Light to upgrade the damage of legendary and exotic weapons. Players will be upgrade right up to the 365 damage cap.
The three maps that were released in the Dark Below expansion pack will also be put up for all players in update 1.2.0. These maps are Skyshock, The Cauldron and Pantheon.
