With the vaulting of locations this coming November various planets and campaigns are going away as there assets will be taken of the game file. This is the reason missions like zero hour will be going away but many of us already knew that. One location I always wanted to go back to was from the Solstice of Heroes event during warmind expansion as it was the closes thing we got to a social zone in the last city. Unfortunate it seems that going back to it will not be happening any time soon as the location used a lot of assets from the Red War campaign.
its my first solstice of heroes so i have no idea how they years were prior (although i was around for the annual pass so im not a new light player) but i have to say the EAZ is an absolute slogfest with no enjoyment for me at all, of course im gonna grind it anyways for the armour but has it always been like this? cuz i dont know if its just me but this event sucks
From Sep. 8th - Oct 6th there will be nothing of note for players to do. Please extend Solstice until at least the end of September for people to continue grinding armor while they wait for the release.
Can we just pray that our fully leveled armor isn't 46 stat TRASH like it was last year?
Please, Bungie... we're begging you!
I’m not sure why, maybe it’s the armor grind, maybe it’s the cool glows, but I just love this event.
Using the Item Analytics from Charlemagne and some quick math, I have calculated the approximate generated income that Bungie has gotten through the Eververse for Solstice of Heroes.
Assuming that 100 Silver = $1, since for $29.99 USD you can buy 3000 Silver (with +500 Bonus)
|Item||Silver Cost||Number Sold||$$$|
|Iron Severance Finisher||800||42,960||$343,680|
Total generated from the above items: $995,988 USD
Note: Charlemagne does not have data on the Catching Rays, Power Rising, Sweltering Heat, or Intimidating Snap Emotes, as well as the Eira's Grace or On Glit Wings Sparrows. All of which are being sold for 500-1000 Silver.
I've been here since D1 Beta.
I was there for Solstice 2019 and have the gloriously beautiful Titan armor set with Arc Glows that I PAINSTAKINGLY grinded for to show for it.
Why do I like this year's Solstice? No 100 EAZ Miniboss Kills required.
For those that went thru that hell, I understand your hesitation to participate this year but i promise you...what took me personally the entire ~4 week event to get done last year I finished by this Saturday morning this year. White Glows from top to bottom. The overall grind is 1/1,000th of what it was last year.
Edit: The reason 100 Miniboss Kills was absurd was because they were Final Blow kills ONLY. I believe (with no evidence!) that an average EAZ run got you ~8-9 minimum boss kills. Assuming all three of you were evenly contributing and SECURING YOUR OWN FINAL BLOWS, that means YOU got maybe ~3 Miniboss kills per run. It was the absoulte antithesis of teamwork.
These steps seem to be required to masterwork the gear. Hopefully they don’t do something this fall that invalidates this armor again.
Edit: These are actually ornaments now! Not just gear.
Edit 2: Just a head’s up, A LOT OF INFORMATION RELATED TO THESE GEAR/ORNAMENT PIECES IS ON LIGHT.GG
If you’re confused or have any questions, light.gg is probably your best source of information on these and their requirements.
I completed the rest of my requirements for my magnificent set today and it made me realize that bungie really has to update the way we play the game especially on the planets.
We have been doing the same type of activities for 6+ years now and it’s extremely bland. Patrols need to evolve the planets need more life in them and public events need some type of effect on the area you are patrolling.
I’m hoping Europa and the reprised cosmodrome changes the way we explore planets

The community clamours for it. Year after year, we ask for it. We beg on bended knee.
Bungie, you claimed to be in touch with the community complaining about FOMO. You know that one of the big problems Destiny has always had is maintaining player engagement in a content lull.
Extending Solstice is the perfect way not only be listening to the community, but also keep them engaged in what would otherwise be a wait if about a month until Festival of the Lost. This is an opportunity to appease the people complaining about FOMO for very little cost. This would even mean extending the window for people to engage in Eververse purchases for Solstice items.
So extend Solstice. A week goes a long way.
If anyone finds this helpful to help keep track of objectives, I made an armor upgrade checklist in Google Sheets. Just make a copy into your own Google Drive and it's yours!
I created a video showing off everything I could find in the destiny api for the 2020 Solstice of Heroes event. I showcase all rewards plus objectives found on the 3 sets of gear on all three classes.
I swear I've searched everywhere and have found that this is the last week of solstice of Heroes, but can't find any info about when the final date to get the MMXX seal is. I know the Exodus and Supplicant triumphs should be available this week (9/8 - 9/14) but can I still get the MMXX triumphs until Beyond Light drops? I'm still trying to find someone to help me through Prophecy and get the eyes. (XB1 player).
hello! i have stumbled onto a very strange problem with the 2020 solstice of heroes track download. i...cannot right click on the file? "kapbird what's that mean?" well, i'm glad you asked, buddy. it means that whenever i right click on the windows file, windows explorer just...hangs? i get the little spinning disk, and then windows explorer fades out, crashes, and reboots. this doesn't happen with ANY other mp3, just this track. is this a me thing? is there something messed up with the file? if anybody has any advice on how to like. fix this, it'd be much appreciated lol, yr girl rly wants a non-broken* version of this thing
*i can still play the file so it's not broken broken, just, it'd be neat if i didn't have to worry about crashing explorer if i think to myself, "oh, lemme just check what the size of this file is"
I'm a PvE player and not very good at PvP. KDA is well below 1. Any good weapons to pick from?
I went into Momentum Control and was able to get it in just 4 games. I grabbed a blue auto rifle from collection and that was enough to get plenty of kills myself. Thanks everyone for suggesting Momentum. I didn't know that was a thing and it was actually kinda enjoyable even though my average KDA was about 0.5
Basically the title.
Solstice of Heroes is scheduled to end with the weekly reset on September 8, 2020. Wondering if its possible to complete the tasks for the glows on the Magnificent armor after that weekly reset. None of the required tasks are Solstice specific and will be available after Solstice of heroes ends. They include:
From what I've read/experienced you only have to do each task once and it transfers over to all characters, so that's a plus. My main concern would be Helmet (may need to level a bit more as my max is currently 1075) and Boots (since this would be the first time I played ToO).
It's also been mentioned that glows will be... keep reading on reddit ➡
My friend who is new to the game can't get the helmet for some reason. I have been able to but he can't. Eva just showes her inventory with the sparrow and ghost. Any fixes?
Hi, I recently joined the game as it seemed a very easy way to join my friends with a set of 1020 armour.... but I can't seem to access the quest. Is there some hidden quest tree I need to go through? all the published articles online just say that you talk to the quest giver and that's it.
Is there a light requirement for the solstice of heroes event? I play the game really casually between work and school and my friend let me know about this event. I'm at roughly 830 light but I'm not getting the cutscene like everyone else. The bungie guide says the only requirements are the game, Shadowkeep, and forsaken. All of which I have. I just want help understand why I'm not able to a part of the event if I meet the listed requirements. Please help me
I like the white glow better then the subclass glows.
I’ve gotten a few of the white glows, but I haven’t gotten an ornament. Is the white glow for the solstice armor not a universal ornament? Is it only the subclass glow that is universal?
If it is then that sucks.
I had a friend recently install destiny 2 and solctice is up so i thought maybe we could use that to give him a big light level boost. Anyway when he goes to Eva Levante he said there's no helmet for him to grab to start it all. Does he need a certain light level or anything else before he can start it?
When this year's event rolled around, I was at first a little sad that last year's glows weren't a thing anymore, as those would have been something I definitely would have grinded for all the way...
And I still am. I'm upset I missed them - this year's just don't hit different. Where are our beautiful glowing Rococo feathers ? (It's my meager hope that they'll be brought back at some point in the form of ornaments, but let's say I doubt it'll happen.)
All in all, the Solstice isn't a bad little event at all. The daily rotation of elemental empowerment can be quite fun, depending on the guns you're using, and the fact that you get Solstice Key Fragments for just about every activity you do in-game is nice - I almost haven't had to really worry about having enough to open all my packages.
The Majestic-Into-Magnificent grind is NOT something I will partake in, however. While some of those objectives are reasonable (verging on 'too easy' even), others... and on the same armor piece !... keep reading on reddit ➡
Having completed my Magnificent Armor Set, I did a quick PoH Boss CP to see if there was validity to Aztecross' claim that the earned white glow looks better (read: more prominent and brighter) than the paid, colored glows.
In-game, whether max super or not, the same result can be easily seen: the white glow is far more prominent and visible.
Anyone else notice this? If so, extremely annoying as the white glows are tied to the Solstice armor drops from packages, so it can't be applied to god rolled armor from other sources.
