Final Week – Ends Aug 3, 2021

- Activities: European Aerial Zone Join high-flying fireteams as you soar across the European Aerial Zone in search of glory and treasure. The sky’s the limit on how many bosses you defeat and how many caches you unlock.
- Armor: Earn class-specific Solstice armor and improve its quality by adventuring through a variety of objectives. Once fully upgraded, the armor will glow.
- Gameplay: Each day will challenge you to match your attacks to the daily element in order to charge one of four unique elemental buffs. On Prism days, all four buffs can charge but only one can be activated at a time. Choose your subclass wisely.

The Bungie Store team has been hard at work behind the scenes making the Bungie Store a better place to shop, especially for Bungie Rewards. Existing Bungie Store customers can now reset their password and migrate their Bungie Store account to the new site. From there they can link their Bungie Store account to their Bungie.net account to view and purchase Bungie Rewards without a code.
Deadline: August 13, 11:59 PM PDT (to receive the free exclusive in-game emblem, New Blue)
When Will Emblem Codes be Sent? Emails with codes will be distributed on August 20. For those who reset their password before July 31, 11:59 PM PDT, email codes will be sent out on August 6.
Migration of accounts and orders have taken longer than anticipated to Bungie’s updated Bungie Store, resulting in players being unable to reset their passwords or locate their orders. Bungie is continuing to migrate everything over and hope to have a resolution soon. Due to these issues, Bungie is extending the deadline to receive the free exclusive in-game emblem, New Blue, to August 13, 11:59 PM PDT. Emails with codes will be distributed on August 20. For those who reset their password before July 31, 11:59 PM PDT, email codes will be sent out on August 6.
Here is what has changed or been fixed with the Hotfix that released yesterday, July 29.
An issue where the Ludomaniacal emblem did not have appropriate acquisition steps in its details has been fixed.
Vault of Glass
- Removed weapon drops from Master Vault of Glass encounter loot pools.
- Players are guaranteed to receive stat-focused armor from Master difficulty encounters.
- Master Vault of Glass loot lockouts have been separated from Normal.
- Both can now be looted independently each week.
- Drops will only be at Pinnacle Power from the first weekly clear of each encounter.
- For example, if you complete Oracles in Normal difficulty first it will award Pinnacle. If you later in that week complete Oracles on Master difficulty, it will award stat-focused armor but not at Pinnacle Power.
- Completing either encounter again after that will award Spoils of Conquest, and Masterwork Materials at Master difficulty.
Note: Timelost Weapons will still drop from the Weekly Master VoG Challenge is each week.
Armor & Abilities
- Fixed an issue where some Stasis finishers caused a slight delay to weapon readiness relative to non-Stasis class finishers.
- Fixed an issue where Boots of the Emperor’s Agent didn’t display shaders correctly.
- Fixed an issue where the Ghoyster Shell could heave horrific dead pupils in certain environments. Bungie is still recovering from this issue and apologize to anyone who may have nightmares.

Riiswalker and Archon’s Thunder can be earned from the quest, as well as post-game drops and bounty completions.

With the launch of Season 15 on August 24, Vanguard reputation ranks will be updated and no longer require the use of Vanguard Tokens.
Due to this, Vanguard Tokens will be deprecated at the launch of the Season. Players should turn in their Vanguard Tokens to Zavala to receive rewards this Season before August 24 when their Tokens expire.
Preparing for Cross Play
Early in Season 15, Cross Play will go live. When players log in for the first time to play Season 15, the name on whatever platform they log in on will become their Bungie Name for when Cross Play goes live. Players should begin thinking about what name they’d like to use since name changes won’t be available with the launch of Cross Play.
Bungie Store Updates
Migration of accounts and orders have taken longer than anticipated to our updated Bungie Store, resulting in players being unable to reset their passwords or locate their orders. We’re continuing to migrate everything over and hope to have a resolution soon.
