Destiny 2 Solstice of Heroes Bringing Armor, Redux Missions, Engrams, More

Published

on

Destiny 2 is preparing to launch the Solstice of Heroes begins on July 31st and there are a number of items that gamers can expect to earn when the event goes live.

The event comes on the heels of a recent update, update 1.2.3 which arrived on Tusday, and introduced new bounties, Prestige Raid Lairs, 6v6 Crucible Playlist, among other things.

This time around, Guardians will wear the now-broken ceremonial armor from the day the City was lost to the Red Legion during the Solstice of Heroes event.

Players will reforge the broken gear into “something stronger,” and “meditate on their journey through the Red War.”

Bungie has released the following information on what you can expect:

Destiny 2 – Solstice of Heroes event

New Armor to Upgrade

After you visit the Statue of Heroes, you will receive an uncommon “Scorched” armor set at Power 240. On each armor piece is a series of objectives that you will need to complete to upgrade the armor. Once you have completed the objectives, return to the Statue of Heroes to upgrade to the next set.

After you upgrade your Shattered set, you’ll receive the “Rekindled” set at Power 340 — with a new list of objectives. Once you complete those objectives, your reward is the “Resplendent” Armor Set at Power 400. One final group of objectives to complete, and you’ll unlock the Masterwork version of the armor set.

Each Resplendent Armor Set offers the previous versions as ornaments, so you can pick and choose how each piece looks.

Redux Missions

One of the ways you’ll upgrade your armor during the event is through Redux Missions. Five story missions have been selected and given slight alterations. Each mission can be accessed in the Tower by finding its statue. Here are the five missions for the event:

  • I – Homecoming
  • II – Spark
  • III – Payback
  • IV – 1AU
  • V – Chosen

Moments of Triumph

Many have already begun completing Moments of Triumph, currently being tracked on Bungie.net. The final five Triumphs will become available at the beginning of the Solstice Heroes event, and can be tracked in-game. Triumphs will be tracked by in-game bounties that are obtained at the Statue of Heroes. As you complete and turn in those Bounties, you’ll unlock rewards that can be redeemed at the Statue.

Extras

There’s also the Solstice Engram available from Tess Everis. You can earn three per account by completing the event Milestone on each of your characters. No matter what activity you play in Destiny 2 during Solstice of Heroes, you’ll receive one Solstice Engram in addition to the Bright Engram you earn for leveling up.

Here’s a look at some of the rewards that will drop from the Solstice Engram:

Armor Glows also come from the Solstice Engram. These can be applied to any version of the Solstice of Heroes armor sets, to provide Guardians with an enhanced look. Armor Glows are unlocked permanently, like ornaments, and they shine brightest when your subclass element aligns with the element of the Glow.
