What to Expect From Destiny 2 Solstice 2022

In brief, here is what we know about the Solstice 2022 event in Destiny 2:

  • There is going to be an Event Card, which is an item aimed t helping players to organize objectives, showcase missions, challenges, Seals and titles, and even upgrade some of its aspects. Keeping track of this item will be key if you want to unlock some of the cosmetic rewards available
  • Armor upgrading will be different as well, involving items called Silver Leaves, Silver Ash, and Kindling — the latter used to permanently upgrade your Solstice armor stat roll potential
  • Usual event activities that are yet to be disclosed

That’s all we know for the time being about the Destiny 2 Solstice 2022 release. For the time being, there’s still a full day ahead to catch up with any pending activities that I’m sure both you and I have procrastinated a bit too much.

In addition, we’re covering all patch notes, bugs and top issues, Bound in Sorrow quest steps, and Calus Bobbleheads. We’ve covered how to get Opulent Keys, Bound Presence in Containment, Crown of Sorrow H.E.L.M. upgrades, Iron Banner Seal Triumphs, and the Trespasser Catalyst. And lastly, we’ve written on how to find a Loyalist Commander for Battles Lines Triumph and the Cek’ik Boss.
