Solstice of Heroes in Destiny 2
Like every other year, Bungie announced this year's solstice ahead of season 14 which will commence next week on July 6th.
Guardians in this event have to kill bosses on EAZ (European Aerial Zone) to earn and upgrade gears. Certain gears will apply a unique glow based on the color of the guardian subclass.
This year's Solstice of Heroes in Destiny 2 will run from July 6th to August 3rd, giving each guardian a chance to farm a fully upgraded set of armor.
Additionally, Guardians can also pick up a brand new legendary shotgun named Compass Rose.
The rewards pool also contains an emblem along with an exotic ghost shell.
Much like previous years, this year's Solstice will likely have the same objectives where Guardians will have to kill enemies and other guardians under a certain time. At the end of the encounter, a number of chests will spawn based on the number of bosses killed in the encounter.
During the entire Solstice of Heroes event in Destiny 2, any enemies killed with elemental ability will drop elemental orbs along with certain buffs. This can be done in EAZ or in any other activity.
New Master Difficulty in the raid Vault of Glass
Vault of Glass in Destiny 2 is the most recent raid in Season 14 and is accessible to all players. With the additional triumph challenge getting added to the raid in week 8, Bungie decides it’s high time to up the stakes and add an additional difficulty for guardians to push through the vault of Glass.
Guardians will have to complete the Vault of Glass on Master Difficulty in order to acquire the "Fatebreaker" raid seal, as well as to get their hands on Timelost weapons.
The Vault of Glass will set enemies to a minimum of 1350 power levels, so Guardians will have to grind and increase their artifact level to even remotely come close.
