Destiny 2021 Update: The Road to The Witch Queen

Source: https://www.bungie.net/en/News/Article/50124


Hey Guardians,

As some of you know, I didn’t work on Destiny before it shipped in 2014. I started out as a Guardian. I got hooked on running the Vault of Glass, trying to get my Truth drop in a Nightfall, and, yes, sometimes trolling my fireteam with inopportune Ward of Dawn placements.

After playing for just a few short weeks, I knew I wanted to do whatever it took to work on the game. Destiny changed my life. Back then, I knew Bungie had just begun the journey of what Destiny could be – and what it could mean – to so many Guardians like me. When I walked through the doors of Bungie for the first time, The Dark Below had just shipped and the team already had their eyes up, outlining ambitious plans for the future. It was clear that everyone at Bungie loved Destiny fiercely and believed in its future as much as I did.

Flash forward to today. Season of the Chosen has launched, and it's incredible to see how far the game has come. Right now my Guardian is crushing Battlegrounds, perfecting a new build for Master Lost Sectors, gilding titles, progressing Seasonal Challenges, working on catalysts for some of the most unique Exotic weapons we’ve ever added to the game, and experiencing more Seasonal narrative progression in Destiny than ever before. It’s humbling to think how much of these systems and this content didn’t exist two years ago, last year, or even last month.

Though going to work these days includes video calls, guest pets and kids, what continues to humble and motivate me since my first day is how this team still looks at Destiny with fresh eyes every day. We see possibility in Destiny at all levels on the team and working on this game has really become life-changing for many of us. Destiny, this friendship-maker-and-sometimes-temporary-friendship-breaker; this catalyst to make memories; this universe that we all love. We’re lucky to be here and share these moments with you.

Destiny has so much to offer to so many different types of players, and even more than that, it means something different to each player. It’s complex, intricate, and demanding, and that makes it an awesome challenge to work on. As massive as Destiny is, we believe there is so much more potential to unlock in this amazing game, stories to finish and new stories to come, and that will keep driving us to make it better every week, every season, every year.

The Witch Queen armor sets are tied to the Alchemical Primes

So with the new blog post regarding the future of the game, we got a look at an armor set from the Witch Queen expansion. As soon as I saw all the symbols on the armor, it piqued my interested and I started digging.

Hunter

The hunter is Mercury. On the shoulders, the numbers 80 and 200.59 are written. These are the atomic numbers and weights for Mercury found on the periodic table. On the right leg, the topmost symbol is the Alchemical symbol for Mercury ☿.

Below the 7 pointed spiral, there is another symbol that I can't identify. Anyone with more knowledge on the subject, feel free to chime in and I'll add it to the post.

Titan

The titan is salt. This one is probably the most obvious, with the NaCl on the shoulders. The smaller symbol on the mark in the top left of the design in the center of the mark is the most widely used symbol for salt as a base matter, 🜔, and the large one in the center is another symbol used to represent salt. The numbers on the belt this time are 17 and 35.453, the atomic number and weight for Chlorine.

Warlock

The warlock is Sulfur. The numbers here are 16 and 32.066, again the atomic number and weight for the element. The center of the chestpiece has 4 symbols relating to sulfur, including the alchemical symbol for it, 🜍 , but the most obvious one is the large S, the periodic abbreviation for it. The symbol at the bottom of the robes, with a double crossed vertical line and infinity symbol is known as a Leviathan's Cross, representing brimstone, an archaic term representing sulfur.

Edit: As some people have pointed out, the Hunter has two triangles by their neck, which are the symbols for water and air. The warlock also has similar symbols just below the waist which represent fire and earth.

The Witch Queen armor represents the Three Primes in alchemy: Mercury, Salt, and Sulfur.

Hunters represent Mercury, Titans represent Salt, and Warlocks represent Sulfur. Personally believe it should be salt hunters and stinky sulfur titans, but I’ll live.

Immediately recognized the brimstone symbol on the warlock robes and started digging through to find what the other symbols meant. Titans literally have NaCl plastered on their arms, which is a nice touch.

I’m not super knowledgable in alchemical symbols, so definitely correct me if I’m wrong here! I’m loving how “on brand” this is for something called the Witch Queen.

Edit: Saw some folks wondering what armor I’m even talking about. Do yourselves a massive favor and read the Destiny 2021 Update: Road to The Witch Queen posted on the Bungie website. Lots of amazing updates, the picture of the armor is at the bottom of that post.

Edit 2: Figured out how to put the image in. Apologies, Reddit isn’t my forte! Witch Queen armor
