Destiny fans who have been looking at furthering their Guardian in The Taken King this year have been given a helping hand by developers Bungie.
The studio have taken a break from their weekly blog and look set to return with coverage of their latest update for the game in January 2016.
There will also be quite a few players who will also be returning to the game, having picked up the Taken King during the holidays and hoping to find out what new secrets have been added in the Taken King.
A new guide on what returning fans or new players should be on the lookout for has been posted by Bungie, covering some of the more important points in Year Two, while also touching upon the recently launched Level 25 microtransaction deal.
A post written by community manager Cozmo highlights what will be important to those hoping to explore the game's additional content.
"New players will have the option of playing through the game with a brand new, un-leveled character or using the provided Spark of Light consumable to immediately reach level 25 and access all story content in Destiny: The Taken King," the post reads.
"No matter what you choose, there are a few best practices to help you maximise your time while playing Destiny: The Taken King."
Fans, meanwhile, have been busy voting on what they thought was the most difficult exotic bounty from Year One, with an overwhelming response to one certain headache.
With over 1400 votes counted and a heap of personal stories and woes told, The Thorn triumphed with over 1100 votes, followed by Pocket Infinity, PoE weapons, Bad Juju, Invective and Super Good Advice.
The Light in the Dark exotic weapon bounty is obtained from Vanguard Mentor Missive and rewards players with the Exotic hand cannon, Thorn. To claim it means completing the Summoning Pit, killing Hive enemies on the Moon, Xyor, the Unwed and using Void Damage to defeat Guardians in the Crucible.

Consumables - "Certain consumables can be used to help boost your gear experience for a limited amount of time, while others can increase the rate at which you earn materials and Glimmer.
Bounties and Quests - "Destiny: The Taken King offers players Bounties and Quests to track progress and offer bonus experience for completing in-game tasks.
"Bounties may be redeemed within character inventory, and sometimes have a chance to drop materials or items. Some quests will require players to visit specific vendors in the Tower or the Reef, where others will present the next step directly from character inventory.
Factions - "Factions exist to give players the opportunity to earn reputation in exchange for Faction-exclusive gear and items. Factions vendors are located in the tower.
"Players may exchange Motes of Light, Weapon parts, Armor materials, and Ammo Synthesis in exchange for Faction Reputation. Upon each rank up, players will receive a Faction Package, which will contain Motes of Light, Strange Coins, and a chance for Legendary Weapons and Gear.
Weekly Resets and Activities - "Certain portions of Destiny: The Taken King exist as a weekly or featured Activity. Playing these Activities earn you experience and items that can be used to purchase gear. Daily Heroic Story missions and Daily Crucible playlists will grant Legendary Marks upon completion, which can be used to purchase items in the Tower from vendors.
Upgrade Materials - "Weapons and Armor can be upgraded to grant additional perks. To upgrade, players will need Weapon and Armor materials, as well as different planetary materials.
"Each of the planetary materials can be found on a specific planet (e.g. Spinmetal is found on Earth). Alternate Ghost shells can aid in finding these, as some offer in-game waypoints on material nodes, or grant additional resources upon material collection.
