Player Support

Info below is from the latest TWAB article.

Stadia Reminder

Destiny 2 players whose main characters are from Stadia should set up Cross Save with another platform so they do not lose access to their characters after the shutdown on January 18, 2023. Additionally, after January 18, players with Google Stadia as their primary account should not deactivate Cross Save for any reason. Doing so will result in players completely losing access to their characters.

For more information, please see Bungie’s Save Your Stadia Characters article.

Daylight Savings

Beginning on November 6 in the United States, Destiny 2’s daily and weekly reset time will update to 9 AM PST (1700 UTC).

For more information on ritual resets, please see Bungie’s Ritual Reset Guide

Hotfix 6.2.5.3

Releases: Tuesday, November 8

Timeline:

  • 8 AM PST: Destiny 2 maintenance begins.   
  • 8:45 AM: Destiny 2 is brought offline.   
  • 9 AM: Destiny 2 Hotfix 6.2.5.3 will begin rolling out across all platforms and regions.   
  • 10 AM: Destiny 2 maintenance completes.  

For more information, see Bungie’s Server Status page

Workarounds for Converting Pages

Players still having issues converting their Spectral Pages into Manifested Pages should ensure that they:  

  • Obtain the Gone but Not Forgotten quest from Eva Levante in the Tower.  
  • Are wearing the Masquerader’s Helm with a Festival Mask.  
  • Have at least three free spaces in their character’s inventory.  
  • Have Spectral Pages in their inventory prior to entering the Haunted Sectors playlist. 

If Spectral Pages aren’t converting into Manifested Pages after confirming the above, players may need to:  

  • Clear their console or PC game cache.  
  • Complete a strike.  
  • Obtain more Spectral Pages. 
  • Complete a Haunted Lost Sector (Note that not all Spectral Pages will convert into Manifested Pages).

Stadia

“All players who have their main characters on Stadia should set up Cross Save with another platform so that they don’t lose access to their characters on January 18. Stadia players who enable Cross Save will be able to use their characters on linked platforms after Stadia shuts down.  

If Stadia players don’t set up Cross Save by January 18, they will lose access to their characters, items, emblems, Bungie.net account, and Eververse purchases, such as access to Season Passes. 

After January 18, players with Stadia as their active characters SHOULD NOT deactivate Cross Save for ANY REASON. Doing so will result in a complete loss of characters.”

Season 19 Subclass Changes

Here is a look at some abilities changes coming in Season 19 provided in today’s This week at Bungie article.

“For Season 19, our primary goal is to more closely normalize the power of our existing subclasses, giving us a more standard baseline that we can use for future tuning. This is coming in the form of targeted updates to outliers on the high and low ends of the Light subclasses and Stasis.” -Bungie Sandbox Team

Solar

  • Restoration
    • Restoration x1 base healing rate reduced from 25 to 20 health per second (40 health per second in PvE activities, down from 50).  
    • Restoration x2 base healing rate reduced from 40 to 32.5 health per second (65 health per second in PvE activities, down from 80). 
    • No longer stacks with Healing Rift’s healing. The stronger heal-over-time value is prioritized and will stop the weaker heal-over-time from taking effect.  
  • Solar Fragment
    • Ember of Torches
      • Radiant base duration reduced from 10 seconds to 8 seconds. 
      • Now applies a -10 Discipline penalty while equipped.  
    • Ember of Solace
      • Now provides a bonus 50% to Radiant duration, rather than a flat 5 seconds.
      • Note: this is consistent with its behavior with Restoration. 

Knock ‘Em Down

  • Golden Gun
    • Now provides 15% bonus damage resistance to Deadshot Golden Gun and no longer provides bonus duration. 
    • No longer provides 15% bonus damage resistance to Marksman Golden Gun. 
  • Blade Barrage
    • Blade Barrage bonus projectiles reduced from 5 to 3 per group. It now releases a total of 20 knives , down from 24.

Celestial Fire

  • Increased close-range melee damage from 90 to 100. Players using Celestial Fire and the auto-melee option are no longer disadvantaged in close-range melee fights.  

Void

  • Void Overshield
    • Fixed an issue where the overshield was only providing 25% PvE-only damage resistance to the overshield, rather than the intended 50%.  
  • Nova Bomb: Vortex
    • Increased initial projectile speed by 21%.  
    • Increased radius of the inward pull on impact by ~17%.  
    • Increased strength of the inward pull on impact by ~20%. 
  • Shield Bash (Sentinel Titan)
    • Improved reliability of applying suppression. 
  • Shadowshot
    • Shadowshot: Deadfall
      • Increased Tether anchor lifetime when triggered from 8 seconds to 12 seconds.
    • Shadowshot: Moebius Quiver
      • Reduced Tether anchor lifetime when triggered from 8 seconds to 6 seconds. 

Arc

  • Storm Grenade
    • Touch of Thunder Storm Grenade
      • Decreased Touch of Thunder’s Storm Grenade base roaming duration from 5 seconds to 4 seconds.  
      • Decreased the bonus lifetime granted by Spark of Magnitude to the enhanced Storm Grenade from 2 seconds to 1.5 seconds. 
      • Updated friend-or-foe visual language.
        • Previously, the friend-or-foe ring surrounding a Touch of Thunder Storm Grenade’s lightning strikes blinked on and off between strikes, and there was no indication within the cloud itself of whether it was friend or foe. Now, the ring persists through the life of the storm, and enemy storms have an additional VFX layer in the cloud itself to help differentiate them from those created by allies. 
  • Ballistic Slam
    • Increased Ballistic Slam damage against PvE combatants by 16%.  
  • Tempest Strike
    • Increased Tempest Strike damage against PvE combatants by 30%. 
  • Arc Soul
    • Increased base damage vs. PvE combatants from 35 to 60.  
  • Stormcaller Melee Abilities
    • Ball Lightning
      • Increased travel range from 27.5 meters to 35 meters.  
    • Chain Lightning
      • Increased damage against PvE combatants by 50%.   
  • Chaos Reach
    • Reduced base cooldown time from 9:16 to 7:35. 

Stasis

  • Stasis Slow
    • Increased movement speed penalty while Slowed by 10%.  
  • Coldsnap Grenade
    • Coldsnap’s seeker can now adjust its trajectory for 0.5 seconds after creation, rather than immediately finding a target and traveling toward their last known position.  
  • Duskfield Grenade
    • Increased Slow stack application rate on players by 13%. 
  • Revenant Hunter
    • Winter’s Shroud: Fragment slots increased from 1 to 2.  
  • Behemoth Titan
    • Cryoclasm: Fragment slots increased from 1 to 2. 
  • Shadebinder
    • Glacial Harvest: Reduced cooldown on Stasis Shard creation (per six shards) from 15 seconds to 10 seconds.
  • Whisper of Rending
    • Now provides bonus damage to Stasis Crystals and frozen targets for all Primary ammo weapons, rather than just Kinetic Primary ammo weapons.
