How to use Twist Fate and Glass Needles in Destiny
Just like the short lived reforging of weapons, you’re now able to roll for perks on your armor. This only works with exotic helmets, gauntlets, chest armor and leg armor. Since it is completely based on luck, using the new “Twist Fate” feature can work in your favour or against you. Here is a quick step by step description of what you can expect from the new currency “Glass Needles” and the “Twist Fate” feature.
WHERE TO BUY GLASS NEEDLES?
The new currency can be bought every friday – sunday from Xur.
Three Glass Needles will cost you 3 Strange Coins, 3 Motes of Light and 1 Exotic Shard.
WHICH ITEMS SUPPORT TWIST FATE?
The new Twist Fate feature only supports exotic year 2 armor. You can easily spot these by their icon in the top right corner of your gear.
WHAT TO EXPECT FROM TWIST FATE ROLLS
There are 2 major positives to using Twist Fate. The first is, that the main ability of the armor piece is not affected by these rolls, like the blinding bubble from the “Helm of Saint-14”.
The second upside is, that you keep your progress. So if you have unlocked all features from an armor piece and roll Twist of Fate, your new perks will have the same progress.
Intellect, Discipline and Strength are also affected by Twist of Fate. Depending on your luck, these stats can go up or down.
The rest of the perks like quicker reload speed with shotguns or reduced incoming arc damage change up like this. Reload speed with shotguns might turn into reload speed with scout rifles and incoming arc damage might switch to incoming void damage. It usually stays in these boundaries but can also give you something outside this formula from time to time
