Resplendent armour, Redux missions and Moments of Triumph – Everything you need to know about Destiny 2’s Solstice of Heroes

Destiny 2 Solstice of Heroes (15)

Destiny 2: Forsaken lands in early September, but what’s there to really do in Bungie’s sandbox until then? This week see’s the final Faction Rally of season 3 wrap up, the Raid Lair will still test your mettle and if you’re chasing after some legendary armour ornaments then you can hop into one final round of the Iron Banner before it gets a huge makeover in season 4 of Destiny 2.

There’s one other thing that players can tackle in August: The Solstice of Heroes. A road trip down memory lane, the Solstice of Heroes is a highlight reel where Guardians can relive the events of the infamous Red War that began Destiny 2 last year, and earn some sweet loot in the process. Here’s how it all works.

Redux Missions

According to Bungie, players will begin the Solstice of Heroes by returning to Ikora Rey and replaying several missions from Destiny 2. The catch here with these “Redux Missions”, is that they’re are harder, have extra challenges hidden within them and tougher bosses to deal with. It’ll all be worth it though, as the chance to earn new armour is too good to pass up. There’ll be five missions in total to revisit:

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

Resplendent Armour

    Don’t roll your eyeballs just yet, because this armour will be capable of boosting your Light Level significantly. To do that, you’ll receive your Scorched armour back from the beginning of the game, which can be upgraded to the Rekindled set which has a power level of 340 once certain objectives are completed. If you want to go even further, you can use that gear to create Resplendent armour that has the 400 Light Level hammered into it.

    Going even further beyond that, is a chance to turn the gear into Masterwork armour, which will confer significant PVE and PVP bonuses to players once they’ve been forged. The different looks of the armour will be tied to ornaments, so if you’d like to knock around looking like a space hobo at 400 light, you’re sorted.

    Don’t forget about those Moments of Triumph!

    Oh right! Players who have begun earning their Moments of Triumph (Check the Bungie site) so that they can earn some new rewards. Like an exclusive T-shirt because I’m clearly an idiot. Other than that, Tess Everis will also have a few neat items up for grabs in case you’ve been saving up your Bright Dust:

    1. Darryn’s articles always make this game seem cool. Even when he mentions the negatives.

      But then you read the comments from people who have been playing the game and it paints a totally different picture.

        I’ve gotten more than my monies worth from the game dude & for me it justifies getting Forsaken, which I’ve already done… the only people complaining is the ones not playing the game…

        They don’t call me Darryn “Silver Linings” Bonthuys just because I drank a bucket of mercury and demolished a toilet.

          Drank mercury?
          Explains the madness…

          Scary thing is, in Victorian times, drinking mercury was considered a treatment for constipation.

            Well, shitting your intestines out sure does help cure constipation, so there’s that.

              It’ll also cure that nasty condition people refer to as “life”.

              That’s seriously bad dude. If you catch it, even for 1 second, it’s terminal. And it’s miserable to go through. Seriously. Later stages even have this symptom called responsibility. That’s the worst. Can’t describe it, really. Just. Don’t catch life. Don’t do it.

              There is one bright side. It always ends. 😀

              That’s why the one verse is “always look on the bright side of death”.

              HA! It’s been in my head ALL day.
              Not that I mind, I fucking love all things Python.

              Therein lies the problem. It makes me want to marathon all of it. Like, I need sleep. 😀

              “…the innocent sleep,
              Sleep that knits up the raveled sleave of care,
              The death of each day’s life, sore labor’s bath,
              Balm of hurt minds, great nature’s second course,
              Chief nourisher in life’s feast.”

              Best words ever written about sleep.
