STASIS RELATED CHANGES COMING IN SEASON 15

Starting in Season 15, Bungie’s Darkness guide on Europa, the Exo Stranger, will now reveal more information on how to complete the tasks required for earning more Stasis power. Guardians who have finished the Beyond Light campaign and visit the Exo Stranger on Europa will see the entire path for unlocking Aspects and Fragments. Additionally, many of the pre-requirements for obtaining and completing the 鈥淏orn in Darkness鈥 quest chain will be reduced or removed. Previously, Guardians needed to complete several quest chains and unlock Salvation鈥檚 Grip before Stasis would grant them additional power.

Guardians that completed the Beyond Light campaign will have immediate access to the Born in Darkness quest chain from the Exo Stranger on Europa. The Exo Stranger also reveals every unowned Fragment, regardless of progression through the 鈥淏orn in Darkness鈥 questline, giving a preview of the many powers to unlock. With these improvements to messaging, aimed at removing a lot of the mystery around powering-up Stasis, we鈥檙e excited to see more Guardians unlock Stasis鈥檚 chilling power.
