IRON BANNER + INCREASED VALOR

Saladin has returned to the Tower! Players can earn increased Valor in the Crucible this week.

Ends: Tuesday, Jul 30 @ 10AM Pacific

Info from the Bungie blog: This competitive event will allow you to advance any Iron Banner quest steps you didn’t finish earlier in the season. If you missed the first Iron Banner of Opulence, this is your chance to kick off the quest and earn that singular gear. Full details on how Iron Banner is being run this season are documented here. We did get some feedback on this quest and have some changes lined up, but they didn’t make it in time for this Iron Banner. We’ll give you the details before the next one starts up.

This will be the last Iron Banner before we deploy an update to Lord of Wolves. As Luke mentioned last month, anyone who plays during these two Iron Banners will receive a special Triumph and emblem to commemorate that you were there when the wolves ran wild.


NEXT IN WEEK IN DESTINY:

  • Moments of Triumphs continues until Aug 27.
  • Solstice of Heroes begins for all players and Gambit will be available to all players of Destiny 2 during the Solstice of Heroes, from July 30 until August 27.
  • Titan will be the weekly Flashpoint.
  • Update 2.5.2 arrives plus unique emblems for players that are eligible (Click here to view Destiny 2 maintenance schedule for July 30)

As promised last month, Bungie created an emblem and Triumph for those who braved the wolves during the Season of Opulence. Next week, qualifying players will receive a “Lost History” package at the postmaster, which will unlock a unique Triumph. Once the Triumph is claimed, the emblem will be granted.

To qualify for the “Wolves Unleashed” emblem, players must have finished an Iron Banner match between 10 AM PDT June 18 and 10 AM PDT June 25 2019 or between 10 AM PDT July 23 and 10 AM PDT July 30 2019.

Additionally, Bungie created an emblem for those who embraced the madness back in 2017, when skulls were melted during the reign of Prometheus Lens.

To qualify for the “Prismatic Inferno” emblem, players must have finished a Crucible match between 10 AM PST December 8 and 10 AM PST December 12 2017.


SOLSTICE OF HEROES – FREE SUMMER EVENT

Jul 30 – Aug 27

Solstice of Heroes is a grand tradition among Guardians. It’s a chance for us all to reflect on past hardships and celebrate the resilience of humanity’s foremost defenders. All players of Destiny 2 are welcome to participate in this event, which will begin on July 30 and run until August 27. (Some content will require Forsaken and the Annual Pass)

Note: If you fully upgrade your armor set to the Legendary tier during Solstice of Heroes, you’ll also find an armor 2.0 version of your Solstice of Heroes set at the Gunsmith when Shadowkeep launches.
