Dec 24 – Dec 31 for ALL players!
There will be an Armor 2.0 version of the Iron Truage set available this season. The Seasonal Pursuit to earn this armor will work similar to last Season but we have changed some of the steps and what weapons are required to gain progress.
In case you are just joining us, here is a refresher of how it all works.
- There is a new Seasonal Pursuit which must be completed prior to being able to turn in tokens to purchase packages from Lord Saladin.
- This pursuit is character based and rewards a Season of Dawn armor set.
- Each step of the pursuit awards Iron Banner weapons or armor.
- Most of the objectives within the pursuit track progress at any point during Season of Dawn, even if you have not yet acquired the pursuit.
- Until the Seasonal Pursuit has been completed, all rewards will be obtained from completing matches and bounties.
- All of the rewards will be weapons until the Seasonal Pursuit has been completed.
- There will be seven bounties offering Pinnacle rewards (970 Power Max,) but only four are available per event.
If you were paying close attention to the Season of Dawn calendar you may have noticed an Iron Banner-themed Bow. That image will also show up as director dialogue in the game when Iron Banner starts next week. Bungie is hoping to have the new Iron Banner Bow available this Season, but it had to be pushed to Season 10. Bungie is sorry about the delay, but wanted to call it out to avoid any confusion.
Bungie also made a change to the An Arsenal of Tricks bounty. The ability final blow requirements has been reduced by half.
