Destiny 2 Solstice of Heroes Event
The Solstice of Heroes event was revealed back near the beginning of last month by Bungie, but it’s now finally live in Destiny 2. It kicked off back on July 31, and it’ll be running all the way until August 28, which means you’ve got right around 4 weeks to grab every new loot item possible.
If you visit Ikora Rey during the event, she’ll guide you to a special statue in The Tower. It’s here that you’ll be rewarded with a first armor set. We’ll list all the armor sets you can earn just below:
- Scorched armor – 240 Power.
- Redkindled – 340 Power.
- Resplendant – 400 Power.
You earn the Scorched armor set instantly upon visiting the new statue in The Tower. You then have to complete one objective for each piece in the new armor, and after that you’re rewarded with the Rekindled set. Repeat this process to earn the best of the bunch: the Resplendant armor set.
