As promised, Bungie rolled out their freebie to users today. You can pick it up by visiting the postmaster, who will have a “gift from an unknown benefactor”. There will be no need to visit the Cryptarch, as the package will instantly reveal a legendary item for you.
There is no guarantee as to what you will get other than it will be legendary. The RNG magic that Destiny uses for all other rewards applies to this free gift as well. No account will be taken as to what items you may or may not already own. At the very worst you can break the item down for materials if you do not want it.
Of course, trolls will be trolls and complain even when an item is free. Check out the replies to Bungie’s tweet announcing the deployment of the gift. Game forums are likely to be just as full of negativity about the items received.
Even when you try to do something nice, people have to hate. I’m not excited about the item I got (The Devil You Don’t pictured above) but I don’t feel the need to complain about it either. Bungie didn’t have to give away anything, but did anyway. They even told everyone it would be legendary, but that didn’t stop people from bemoaning about not getting an exotic reward. Bottom line to the situation is that you got something for nothing, it may not be much but you did almost nothing to get it. Even with the level of disdain I have for the game at this point, I won’t put a grudge against something that is free.
