SEASON OF THE LOST HAS BEGUN

Aug 24 – Feb 22, 2022

Helpful Websites: Official Website | Support | FAQ

About

Mara Sov, Queen of the Awoken. It would be an understatement to say that much has transpired in her absence. Her brother, last seen lying in rest, walks among the Guardians wearing a new name; Xivu Arath’s forces rally in the shadow of the Black Fleet; and Savathûn has been revealed at the heart of the Endless Night.

And so, it is now, under the light of a long-awaited sun, that Mara Sov returns to her Dreaming City and seeks an audience with the Witch Queen.

Summary

H.E.L.M. // Story

  • Savathûn, the Witch Queen: Sister to Xivu Arath and Oryx, this family of gods have challenged humanity for centuries. It was Savathûn who defied the Black Fleet, even as it drove a wedge between her and her sister. Although her motive remains obscured, Savathûn’s involvement with the Endless Night demands answers.
  • A Doorway Opens: The crackling of energy echoes throughout the H.E.L.M. as a dark portal makes its presence known within the newly constructed Awoken Wing. Master the tools found here and blur the line between technology and magic.

Save the Lost Awoken // Activities 

  • 6-Player Matchmade Activity – Astral Alignment: Breathe life into slumbering Awoken technology and triumph over those who fear the Light. Align the ley-line network and chart a path to rescue Mara Sov’s lost tech witches from the Shattered Realm.
  • Weekly Mission – Shattered Realm: Wayfind through the Shattered Realm in search of Mara Sov’s lost tech witches. Rescue them and use the power they bestow to see this mysterious landscape with new eyes – to reach the unreachable.

New Exotic Weapon Quest – Ager’s Scepter

  • A weapon of great power, locked away by Mara Sov for her brother Uldren. The hands that hold Ager’s Scepter hold the keys to areas of the Shattered Realm previously barred. Untangle the layers of Awoken security and reach the Exotic weapon before it falls into the wrong hands.

Cross Play

  • Play with and against your fellow Guardians across the solar system, regardless of platform. Cross Play is here and free for all players.

Armaments // Gear

  • Shatter in Case of Emergency: Over 25 new and reprised weapons including new Legendary Stasis weapons.
  • Radiant Dance Machines: Dodge one attack. Then another. Why stop there?
  • No Backup Plans: Get dressed. You’re going to a Shotgun party and your fists are invited.
  • Nothing Manacles: Finely tuned destruction and strength in the splintering.

Season Pass

  • Gear, XP, rewards! Get the Season Pass and instantly unlock the new Exotic Linear Fusion Rifle. Also get XP boosts that speed up Seasonal ranks and reward track unlocks.
  • Exotic Linear Fusion Rifle: The Lorentz Driver utilizes advanced targeting and precision telemetry to deliver perfectly-placed implosions.
  • Wayfinder’s Compass: Increase your Power and discover new builds by earning Seasonal mods to customize your playstyle.
  • Universal Ornaments: Collect new Season of the Lost universal ornaments and stay at the forefront of Last City fashion trends.

Power Bands Increased

  • Power Floor remains 1100.
  • Soft Cap is now 1270 (up from 1260).
  • Powerful Cap is now 1320 (up from 1310).
  • Hard Cap is now 1330 (up from 1320).

BUNGIE’S PLAYER SUPPORT

Cocoons and Urchins

When Season of the Lost was released, Destiny Player Support saw an increase in players receiving the error code URCHIN after completing the Season of the Lost mission, Mission: Cocoon. This occurs when players try to obtain a new quest step with a full quest inventory. Players who are receiving the URCHIN error should make room in their quests inventory so that an additional quest can be added to the inventory upon completion.

THE WITCH QUEEN

Launches 2.22.2022

Pre-Order Now!!

Savathûn has gifted her soldiers with the powers of the Light. As the Knight you’ve struck down rises from the dead for the second time, a feeling of betrayal washes over you and you can’t help but wonder: When the Light offers no shelter – no solace – where will you turn?

A twisted wonderland of corruption and splendor, Savathûn’s Throne World plays host to a fragile balance of terrifying power. From the foundation of her glistening palace to the gnarled roots in the swamp, all that she hides can be found here. Seek the truth and learn that in this place, mystery makes its home in both the Darkness and the Light.

For more details visit the Official Website or check out the info page on this website (this page is being updated and will have more info added to it this week and periodically).
