Bungie has detailed the weapon rebalances coming to Destiny in the Rise of Iron expansion. Lots of little tweaks: Year 3 Thorn gets a range nerf, No Time To Explain gets built-in headseeker (nice), and Touch of Malice will no longer let titans use Blessing of Light as a buffer. That last tweak actually knocks out the lynchpin of our Oryx hard mode strategy...

I’ve never had a touch of malice and it never effected my ability to complete hard mode oryx. It’s not that great of a gun and for me it looked like a crutch that helped support no one. The biggest issue here is that the thorn still isn't getting the nerf it needs which is that burn can't kill you but can bring you down to nearly dead.
