Iron Banner is set to make it's return soon to The Taken King
Today, Bungie's community manager, Deej, confirmed that the Iron Banner crucible mode will make its return soon.
Lord Saladin will be back soon, Guardians, but not today. I'm back today, so expect more sweet tweets after my long weekend.

With the return of the Iron Banner comes new and exciting updated gear. Unfortunately, these new weapons and armors will not re-roll. Reforging is not returning. All updated gear will come at 280 Attack/Defense, so be ready to infuse them.
Here's a list of all the new upcoming gear coming to the Iron Banner courtesy of Planet Destiny.
|Finnala’s Peril||Hand Cannon||Impact|

Titan's Iron Companion Helm, with Angel of Mercy Perk
All Trials and Iron Banner helmets will come with the "Angel of Mercy" perk, which will gain super energy from reviving down players. It is still unknown about when Trials or Iron Banner will be released in the Taken King. But "soon" will hopefully mean...soon. As of now, Mayhem Clash is the weekly crucible game type.
In the meanwhile, I urge PvP players to get their light levels into the 300 range if your want to be successful in Iron Banner or Trials. If the format stats are true you'll have to hit Rank 3 in order gain access to all of Lord Saladin's gear and items.
