Destiny 2 – Season of Opulence

Greetings Guardians and welcome to the Season of Opulence!

Today marks the start of the latest and last season of content in the gameplay calendar for the Forsaken expansion of Destiny 2. There’s lots of new content that is free to all players regardless of owning the season pass or not, however, as usual there are extra goodies for those that do.

New Challenges Await
Calus is back once again with new challenges for our Guardians to overcome, with the promise of sweet shiny new loot of course! A new, unexplored deck on the Leviathan reveals a maze of new challenges for Annual pass holders, The Menagerie. This is a 6 player match made activity with victory allowing you to assemble the Chalice of Opulence to create an offering of runes to acquire new gear which you will be able to choose. Further playthroughs of the Menagerie will upgrade the Chalice and unlock more power to earn better gear.

Every week you will be able to see Benedict-44 for new and different challenges and objectives within the Menagerie, unlocking new and different areas.

Guardians without an Annual pass will be given one invite to the Menagerie and access to the Imperial Summons Quest, enabling them a chance at getting some power surge gear at 690 to help with the new content.

New Raid
Of course, it wouldn’t be a proper Destiny expansion without a new raid and Bungie rarely fail to disappoint. Jump into the new Crown of Sorrow raid in the underbelly of the Leviathan to seek out the most valuable treasures in the system.

New Weapons & Armour
All sorts of new gear and armour will be available at all the usual stockists like Zavala and Banshee-44, with ranks being reset in Crucible Vanguard and Gambit. This means new pinnacle weapons, with this season’s offerings promising to be both weapons and trophies. This will allow you to equip your new pride and joy and gloat to your fellow Guardians about your prowess in battle.

As the season progresses new Exotic gear and quests will also drop, like the Lumina quest in July.

Free event for the Summer
Running for a limited time the Solstice of Heroes is a chance for Guardians to reflect on past hardships and celebrate the resilience of humanity’s foremost defenders. Eva Levante is waiting in the tower to set Guardians on a pursuit for Year 2 Solstice armour.

Guardians are encouraged to harness the power of the elements to optimize your pursuit of glory and loot. Every day you have a chance to create Elemental Orbs by matching your elemental damage to the daily element. Collecting 30 of these orbs will give you an empowerment buff to smite your foes with.

Game Updates

Power Surge – Returning players can heed Calus’s call to receive higher than normal levelled gear so you can catch your power level up to that of other Guardians and get into the new content quicker.

Iron Banner returns – Lord Saladin has some news for Guardians regarding how to forge a path to new rewards, what has he got in store?

Exotic Weapons & Armour – More exotic weapons and armour will be available for Annual pass holders to acquire.

Triumphs – As the season progresses the Tribute Hall and Moments of Triumph will be available to explore and complete.

I'm a bearded guy in his 30's who still loves to game as much as I did when I was a kid. In fact I'm pretty much still a kid! Love to play driving sims, shooters, puzzle, strategy and survival games the most. Also cant resist a really good RPG here and there.
