Rise of Iron: Bell’s Thoughts Pre-Launch

Tomorrow (9/20/16) “Rise of Iron” – Destiny’s latest expansion – drops and I was able to sit down with the Queen of the Hunters, CurrerBell, and get some pre-release thoughts.

I’ve paraphrased her words (with her approval) below. Enjoy!

What are you looking forward to most?

I’m looking forward to all the new things – armor, guns, maps, etc. More than that being able to play with my gaming group again. An expansion like this pulls everyone back from the other games they’ve been playing, and it’s going to be great to have the band back together.

And, of course, I love me some Crucible.

What are your concerns for the expansion?

The addition of getting back into it – real life repsonsibilities tends to get in the way of my gaming. Also, the frustration of armor/guns that you worked hard for being downgraded.

Do you care about the raid (Wrath of the Machine)?

I would love to care about the raid. Finding the time for it and getting the group together can be a challenge though.


This is my hammer. These are my wolves. Prepare to die.

What class are you most excited to get in there with?

I absolutely adore my Hunter, so she’s my first choice. I just started the path of the Sunbreaker for my Titan, so she’ll make an appearance as well.

What other thoughts do you have on Rise of Iron?

I’m excited for wolves; is it too much to ask to have a wolf pup to follow you around?

I’d also like the story to go a little deeper – the Iron Lords are legend, and I want to be excited to be legend with them. A well-told story can make that happen.

Really excited about the Gjallarhorn being back, however you have to get it.


The new “plague” enemy – and this release in general – doesn’t seem as recycled as the others, and that’s a good thing.


“Rise of Iron” is almost here – good luck Guardians!
