ARCHON TAKE THIS
Deep in a corner of the Plaguelands is the Archon’s Forge, an enclosed arena in which you can summon encounters and boss battles, similar to The Taken King’s Court Of Oryx. But what should be an evolution of the Court’s better ideas instead feels like a step back. Matchmaking is sketchy, loot drop rates are miserly, and the items required to kick off a fight are hard to come by and even harder to hold, since you’re limited to one per character. Crazily, if you don’t jump down from the holding room into the arena within a few seconds of starting a fight, you’re locked out for its duration. Full of promise but poorly designed, a fix should be at the top of Bungie’s to-do list. Experience tells us not to hold our breath.
