Destiny 2 Solstice of Heroes Event Begins Tomorrow

Destiny 2: Solstice of Heroes

Bungie is celebrating the first year of Destiny 2 and the impending release of the Forsaken expansion with the Solstice of Heroes event.

The event begins July 31 and runs through Aug. 28, a week before Destiny 2: Forsaken releases on Sept. 4.

Solstice of Heroes is an event held in the Tower where City inhabitants thank Guardians for their constant protection. Players will take their Guardians on a path of meditation and recollection on the journey through the Red War where Dominus Gaul captured the Traveler and robbed Guardians of their Light. The Statue of Heroes is the focal point of the event where players will keep track of their past and future achievements.

Upon visiting the Statue of Heroes, players receive the “scorched” armor set at power level 240. This armor is identical to what players’ Guardians wore during the opening mission of Destiny 2. Each piece of the armor has a set of objectives that must be completed to upgrade the piece. After upgrading from Shattered to Rekindled at power level 340, a final set of Resplendent armor will be rewarded at power level 400. Once the final objectives are complete for this armor, players will receive a Masterwork version. Bungie has said that this armor will be the only way to reach 400 power before Forsaken launches.

Destiny 2’s story missions will also see a few tweaks as “redux” missions are available. Five story missions from the game’s main campaign have been slightly altered and completing them is part of the objectives required for the Solstice of Heroes armor set.

Moments of Triumph are long-term goals that Bungie have made available before the start of Solstice of Heroes. Players will have access to the final five triumphs when the event goes live. Each triumph rewards points that can be redeemed for unique equipment. Solstice of Heroes engrams are also releasing, which reward items from Destiny 2’s microtransaction portal, the Eververse.

Destiny is a franchise constantly clawing its way back into players’ hearts. Bungie has made several missteps with Destiny 2, namely removing and changing many systems that already worked after several missteps with Destiny 1. Based on what has been seen out of Forsaken, it feels like Bungie is recognizing its mistakes and providing players with the content they want. Solstice of Heroes may turn out to be an elaborate grind with an enticing hook and little substance. Then again, it may be a fun way to close the chapter on this sequel’s tumultuous first year.
