SEASONAL CONTENT THAT’S STAYING

Here鈥檚 a look at what鈥檚 sticking around from Season of the Hunt until the end of Year 4.

  • Story missions will be able to be launched from a node in the Director.
  • Wrathborn Hunts
  • Adored quest will continue to be available.
  • Crow鈥檚 vender screen on Tangled Shore.
  • Hawkmoon Exotic quest and Master activity.
  • Seasonal Seal and Warden Title.
    • Seasonal Seal must still be earned by the deadline on the Bungie Rewards page. Due to an issue blocking the Triumph we will be adjusting this deadline.

Here are a few things that will no longer be available at the end of the Season:

  • Crow鈥檚 Bounties
  • Messages from the Field
  • Seasonal Artifact
  • Season Pass

Bungie stated that shifting to keep more of this content around after the Season ended has created some weirdness for Season of the Hunt, which was initially designed assuming the old model. This is why Crow was still hanging around in Spider鈥檚 lair right after being unceremoniously kicked out earlier in the Season. You may see other anomalies involving Crow in Season 13 as he’ll be moving to a new destination while also remaining on the Tangled Shore to enable Season of the Hunt content tied to his inventory.聽Season 13 should avoid these rough edges as its content has been designed from the outset to remain throughout Year 4.

SEASONAL CHALLENGES

Here is some information from Bungie regarding Season Challenges:

Over the last year, Bungie has been looking at ways in which they can reduce the amount of FOMO (Fear of Missing Out) in Destiny 2. They have recently made some changes to Seasons and how Seasonal content is available throughout a given year of Destiny 2. This week, they are looking to bounties and Bright Dust, introducing a new system not only to remove FOMO, but give fresh ways to earn XP and alternate rewards.

During production of Beyond Light, Bungie (Dev Team) started looking at the problems of bounty fatigue and FOMO, as well as Seasonal legibility (i.e., 鈥淲hat is in a Season?鈥 and 鈥淗ow to I engage with it when I log in?鈥). They created a few goals which they believe will improve the experience:

  • Provide a guide to new, returning, and veteran players for what to do today/this week.
  • Guide the player through the Seasonal content, week-over-week.
  • Encourage players to engage with complexities and nuances of the Seasonal activity and rituals.
  • Reduce the penalties on XP and Bright Dust for missing a given week.

To solve these goals, Bungie is introducing a new pursuit type for players 鈥 Seasonal Challenges. The Seasonal Challenges live on their own page, are accessed through the Quest Log or Season Pass, and are separated by week.

Here鈥檚 a quick breakdown of how this feature works:

  • Every week, for the first 10 weeks of a Season, between 3 and 10 new Challenges appear automatically for players.
      • Some of the Challenges deal with the Seasonal content.
      • Others push players to complete strikes, Gambit, and the Crucible, or to focus on non-activity focused Destiny rituals, like gaining Power, unlocking Seasonal Artifact mods, or improving guns and armor.
  • These Challenges can only be completed once per account, but once they become available, these Challenges can be completed at any time before the end of the Season, and do not need to be started or picked up from a vendor.
      • As an example, if a player doesn鈥檛 play for weeks 2 through 4, they can return on week 5 and have all of those Challenges waiting for them!
  • Completing each Challenge awards XP, contributing to your Season Pass ranks.
      • Other rewards could be Bright Dust, Seasonal currency, or other interesting items!

In moving away from weekly bounties, which were restricted to broad objectives tied to ritual activities, Bungie has taken more leeway with creating some interesting or more difficult Challenges. These may be things you are already doing, or things that test your ability. Some examples include:

  • Defeating Primeval Envoys in Gambit
  • Defeating enemies in Nightfall: The Ordeal with Seasonal weapons
  • Gaining Infamy or Valor ranks
  • Acquiring the ritual weapon and its cosmetic ornaments
  • Winning rounds in Trials of Osiris
  • Completing a Grandmaster Nightfall

Not all the Challenges will require that level of accomplishment, but the harder or longer the Challenge is, the more experience it rewards. Challenges that focus on the Seasonal activity and ritual mostly need the Season Pass to complete, but most of the ritual focused Challenges can be completed without the Season Pass. Overall, roughly 60% of the Seasonal Challenges do not require the Season Pass.

With the changes above, Bungie is removing weekly bounties from the three ritual vendors (Zavala, Shaxx, and Drifter), Banshee-44, and the Seasonal vendor. These vendors will still have daily bounties which reward XP, and the three ritual vendors will still have repeatable bounties for those of you who want to pursue additional XP and Bright Dust.

Lastly 鈥 most of the Challenges disappear after the Season they were introduced, and anything that isn鈥檛 claimed will be lost. Bungie will not add any new Challenges after Week 10 鈥 which should give everyone a few weeks to clean up any Challenges they didn鈥檛 finish. Any Challenge that rewards unique or Seasonal items (currencies, lore books, Seasonal weapons, etc.) 鈥 can be completed as long as the Seasonal activity is in the game, but XP awarded for completing the challenge will only be available during the season it was introduced.

About Bright Dust聽

Back before Beyond Light launched, Bungie discussed some of the goals around the changes to Bright Dust. As a refresher, they wanted to change the way you earn Bright Dust and move more towards account-specific paths to give players with only one character significantly more Bright Dust than they’ve been earning over the last year. In Season 13, Bungie will be continuing to move toward these goals by adding Bright Dust onto Seasonal Challenges.

Since you no longer have to purchase weekly ritual bounties, each of the strike, Crucible, and Gambit Seasonal Challenges will award between 75 and 300 Bright Dust. Bungie is also introducing an end-of-Season Bright Dust bonus 鈥 if you complete (nearly) all of the Seasonal Challenges, we are awarding a single 4,000 Bright Dust pile.

Additionally, each ritual vendor challenge (鈥淐omplete 8 bounties鈥) awards 120 Bright Dust for each character who completes it each week. And because this is prompted by the removal of weekly bounties, the only Seasonal Challenges that will be awarding Bright Dust are the ones that both Season Pass owners and free players can complete. Here鈥檚 a quick breakdown of how much Bright Dust you should expect to earn over the course of Season 13.

Seasonal Challenges Bright Dust (All Players)

  • Free Seasonal Activities 鈥 6,000
  • Seasonal Extra 鈥 4,000
  • Total 鈥 10,000 Bright Dust

Season Pass Bright Dust

  • Free Path 鈥 7,500 (All Players)
  • Paid Path 鈥 3,000 (Players who own Season Pass)
  • Total 鈥 10,500 Bright Dust

Weekly Ritual Vendor Challenge Bright Dust (All Players)

  • 120 Bright Dust per ritual vendor, per character, per week
    • 14,040 total if completing all required weekly Challenges over the course of Season 13

Additionally, Bungie still plans to offer weekly and repeatable Bright Dust bounties for Seasonal events, giving you a bit more Bright Dust towards desired rewards.聽As a final note, please be sure to claim all Seasonal Challenges that award Bright Dust prior to the end of a Season. Once a Season ends, associated Challenges and their Bright Dust rewards will expire and can no longer be claimed.
