Last Wish Raid (Requires Forsaken)

Begins: Sept 14 @ 10 AM PDT

From This Week at Bungie: The next date we know you want to circle on your calendar is when the raid will open up and when the race for World First will begin. Here is Senior Designer Joe Blackburn to tell you more.

JoeForsaken is proof that the full Destiny 2 experience is just beginning when the campaign comes to a close. With so many new things to do and so much Power to gain, we knew that players would need more than just three days to prepare for the incredible challenges of Forsaken’s raid. That’s why “Last Wish,” the next chapter in Destiny’s raiding legacy, goes live on September 14 at 10 AM PDT, a week and a half after you’ll have first set foot on the Tangled Shore. Good luck, Guardians.

In the time between 2.0.0 going live and Forsaken launching, things might get a little weird. Player Support has the info you need to know. Here is the full Player Support Report by Bungie.

Destiny 2 Hotfix

On Tuesday, September 4, Destiny 2 will undergo maintenance to receive Update The conclusion of this maintenance will mark the launch of Destiny 2: Forsaken, and this hotfix will be required to log in and play. For the Hotfix deployment schedule, please see the times listed below.

On Tuesday, September 4:

  • 7:00 AM PDT: Players will no longer be able to log in to Destiny 2. Players leaving activities will be returned to the title screen. Hotfix will begin rolling out across all platforms and regions.
  • 7:30 AM PDT: Destiny 2 will be taken offline for maintenance, and all remaining players will be returned to the title screen.
  • 7:30–10:00 AM PDT: Destiny 2 will remain offline for maintenance.
  • 10:00 AM PDT: Destiny 2 maintenance is expected to conclude, and Destiny 2: Forsaken will become available to play on all platforms.

For Hotfix patch notes on September 4, players should keep an eye on our Updates page or follow @Bungie on Twitter for live announcements.

Gear Infusion and Level Requirements

Once Destiny 2: Forsaken is live on September 4, players may begin increasing their Power and character level beyond their Year 1 limits. As with all increases to player Power in Destiny 2, players should be aware that infusing gear with a requirement above their current character level will make the infusion recipient unavailable for use until the player levels up.

For example:

  • A player logs in to Destiny 2: Forsaken on September 4 at character level 30
  • The player receives new gear with a level 31 character requirement
  • The player infuses the new gear into their favorite Year 1 gear
  • This Year 1 gear is no longer available for use, since it has adopted the level 31 character requirement from its infusion material
  • The player must then increase their character level to 31 to reequip this gear

Players should pay extra attention to the character level requirements on their gear as they climb to max level in Destiny 2: Forsaken.

Mod Changes for All

As a reminder, mod changes will take full effect on September 4 at the launch of Destiny 2: Forsaken. Listed below is the full experience that players will encounter once Hotfix becomes available.

  • Year 1 weapons will not accept Year 2 weapon mods
      • Elemental attributes on Year 1 weapons will be locked, and you will no longer be able to change them
      • Some targeted Year 1 Power weapons have had their elemental attributes changed and locked for Year 2
  • Year 1 armor will accept Year 2 armor mods
  • Year 1 Gear will not receive randomized perks
  • All Year 1 mods will be deprecated at the launch of Destiny 2: Forsaken on September 4
      • Year 1 mods may safely be dismantled ahead of time in preparation for the Year 2 mod system

Solstice of Heroes T-Shirt Redemption

As of this past Tuesday, Solstice of Heroes and Moments of Triumph have concluded in Destiny 2. Players who achieved 250 Triumph Points or more and redeemed the Triumph Shirt reward in-game are eligible to generate their Solstice of Heroes T-shirt code on their profile until September 12 at 10 AM PDT.

Players who generate their code by this deadline have until September 30 at 11:59 PM PDT to redeem their code at checkout with their shirt order at the Bungie Store.
