Destiny 2 Season of the Chosen Mods Guide – New Seasonal & Elemental Well Mods

As per usual, a new Destiny 2 season means an all-new seasonal artifact. But what seasonal mods are available for it? Which powerful combinations will we be able to make this time around? If you’re unfamiliar with seasonal artifacts we have a rundown below including the new seasonal mods you can unlock with it. Plus, we find out what Bungie is offering in regards to new weapon and armor mods.

New Elemental Well Mods

Similar to Charged with Light or Warmind Cells, this season introduces Elemental Well Mods. When you have these equipped Elemental Wells will drop from your foes. Picking these up gives energy to whatever ability currently has the lowest energy. If the element matches your subclass, all of your abilities get energy instead.

  • Elemental Charge (2) – Become Charged with Light by picking up an elemental well. If the elemental well’s element type matches your subclass element, you gain 2 stacks of Charged with Light.
  • Elemental Ordinance (3) – Defeating a combatant with a grenade spawns an elemental well that matches your subclass energy type.
  • Elemental Light (1) – Defeating a combatant with your Super spawns an elemental well that matches your subclass energy type.
  • Elemental Armaments (2) – Weapons takedowns with a damage type that matches your subclass element have an escalating chance to spawn an elemental well.
  • Font of Might (4) – Picking up an elemental well that matches your subclass energy type grants a temporary bonus to weapon damage of that same type.
  • Font of Wisdom (4) – Picking up an elemental well that matches your subclass energy type grants a temporary significant increase in your Intellect, improving the recharge rate of your Super.

How to Unlock and Rank Up the Bell of Conquests Seasonal Artifact

You get the Bell of Conquests after completing your first Battlegrounds run on Nessus. After that, just bring it to HELM and get it activated!

Once you’ve unlocked it, you’ll need some time to actually upgrade the artifact itself. The artifact has an infinite number of levels which can advance your Power Level above the hard cap. Artifact levels will cost more and more XP as you increase its power. If you’ve spent a bunch of time upgrading last season’s artifact, those levels have vanished and you’ll need to start the process again.

Bell of Conquest Mods – Seasonal Artifact Mods

Long before you hit the hard level cap you’ll unlock each of the different mod tiers. In total you’ll be able to select up to 12 artifact mods to have unlocked at any given point. Keep in mind that because of the artifact limitations, at most, you can have two of the final column mods unlocked.

It’s worth noting that just like every other season artifact has, the Bell of Conquest expires at the end of this season. It will take all of your power bonus and seasonal mods with it. Thankfully, artifact progress is shared across all of your characters! At the very least you won’t have to rank it up multiple times in the same season.
