FACTION RALLY

Ends: November 14 @ 1AM PST

Victory Week Starts: November 14 @ 1AM PST

Victory Week Ends: November 21 @ 1AM PST

Victory Week is to celebrate the winning faction. You will have this week to purchase the winning faction weapon and turn in any remaining tokens.

Victory Weapons:

Dead Orbit – Truthteller (Grenade Launcher)

New Monarchy – Honor’s Edge (Sword)

Future War Cult – Timeline’s Vertex (Fusion Rifle)

Victory Weapon Costs:

1k Glimmer with pledge to winning faction.

50k Glimmer without pledge.

Info below is from the recent TWAB article:

If you read the 1.0.6 Patch Notes this morning, you may have noticed a few changes we’ve made since the last event. Senior Designer Tim Williams can elaborate.

Tim Williams: During the first Faction Rallies, we had a chance to learn a lot about how the activities motivated gameplay. We looked at the time invested compared to the rewards and made the following adjustments:

Faction Rallies

  • Strikes now reward faction tokens at a range of 5 to 9 faction tokens per completion (up from 3 to 7)
    • Nightfall now rewards 10 to 18 faction tokens on first completion per character
  • Completing Heroic Public Events now rewards 5 faction tokens (down from 8)
  • Destroying enemy resources no longer rewards faction tokens
    • Opening Lost Sector Chests now rewards 3 faction tokens for each fireteam member

In addition to the changes Tim talked about, we also added some new weapons for you to obtain from your faction of choice. Here is a look at what we added to the packages, and what each side has to offer if they emerge victorious.

New Monarchy Weapons

Future War Cult Weapons

Dead Orbit Weapons

The winning faction – and ONLY the winning faction – will sell the weapon they’ve selected to lure you into their ranks. Aside from all the gear you stand to earn, this is what you’re fighting for.

New Monarchy – Honor’s Edge (Sword)

Future War Cult – Timeline’s Vertex (Fusion Rifle)

Dead Orbit – Truthteller (Grenade Launcher)

Depending on who emerges the victor, you’ll be able to claim one of these rewards during the week following the ritual. If you pledged loyalty to the winner, you can pick it up for 1,000 Glimmer. For everyone else, it’s 50,000 Glimmer. That’s the price for disloyalty in the Tower. Good luck, and may the best faction win! (Read the full TWAB article by Bungie)

CLARION CALL // SEASON ONE LIMITED TIME EVENT

Starting on November 17, the first Clarion Call for Destiny 2 will be live all weekend long. This will be an opportunity for you to earn double XP for everything you do with a fellow clan member in your fireteam. If you aren’t in a clan, this would be a perfect time to join one. Your increased gains will run from 10 AM Pacific on November 17 to 10 AM Pacific on November 20. If you are dedicated to playing solo, there will be future Clarion Calls that won’t require you to play with a clan. Source: TWAB


CURSE OF OSIRIS // RESET TIME CHANGES

With the release of Curse of Osiris, Ritual Resets will no longer take place at 1 AM Pacific.

Reset Time Change Starts: December 5 and will new time will be at 9:00 AM PST.

Throughout Destiny 1’s lifespan, players would frequently encounter an issue where weekly resets would not always coincide with content releases. This would prevent impacted players from earning new rewards. Countermeasures were taken by disabling activity playlists, but we were unable to prevent every scenario. Additionally, we’re seeking to align the Milestone resets with event availability, such as Trials of the Nine or Iron Banner, to provide a uniform experience for players to follow each week.

The following is a short list of time zone conversions from 1700 UTC. If you do not see your local time below, we advise using an online time zone converter to prepare for the upcoming change.

  • 9 AM PST
  • 12 PM EST
  • 5 PM GMT
  • 9 PM MSK
  • 2 AM JST
  • 4 AM AEDT
  • 6 AM NZDT

Stay tuned to help.bungie.net for future Support updates regarding the Curse of Osiris and the start of Season 2, releasing on December 5, 2017. Source: TWAB


All posts for Destiny 2 will start posting around 9AM PST in December, since that will be the new reset time starting December 5th.

Hope you have a great weekend! 🙂
