Solstice of Heroes is just amazing!

Solstice of Heroes is here and with it we have a ton of fun ways to spend our time! The aim, should you wish to attempt it, is to slowly upgrade your armor to 400 through a series of activities that pretty much span over most of the activities in Destiny 2.

One of the things I miss in destiny 2 is that once you have done the weekly milestones you are pretty much left with nothing to do. Sure you can grind for items, but at this point i am not sure there are any items I actually want to hunt for. The Solstice of Heroes provides a lot of activities that you can do as you see fit for the next month or so, which is really nice.

I just completed the armor on my Titan and with the exception of the Crucible parts (because I suck in PVP) it was a great experience. It's now time to complete the first upgrade for my warlock and hunter as well. I will start with my warlock because I feel it's easier to get the Crucible power kills with my Warlock in case I want to try that before next weeks Mayhem event.

The aim is to have all the Scorched upgrade tasks completed except for the Crucible power kills by next week. This way I can complete the crucible part during next weeks Mayhem, which should make it easy to get the 30 power kills (compared to now). All other aspects of the upgrades should be easy enough to do solo except perhaps for the Redux missions and the Nightfall that I'll do with my clan mates for easy completion.

 

Here is what each class will need to do to upgrade their Scorched (240 power) set to Rekindled (340 power).

Hunter

  • Head - Spark Redux mission, 90 solar orbs in the EDZ, 10 kills in the Crucible
  • Arms - Homecoming Redux mission, 150 arc orbs, complete a meditation with Ikora
  • Chest - Chosen Redux mission, 90 arc orbs in strikes, complete 10 Heroic public events
  • Legs - 1AU Redux mission, 150 void orbs, defeat 50 mini-bosses
  • Cloak - Payback Redux mission, get 30 kills with your Super in the Crucible, complete 10 patrols

Titan

  • Head - Spark Redux mission, 150 arc orbs, 10 kills in the Crucible
  • Arms - Homecoming Redux mission, 90 solar orbs in strikes, complete a meditation with Ikora
  • Chest - Chosen Redux mission, 90 void orbs in the EDZ, complete 10 Heroic public events
  • Legs - 1AU Redux mission, get 30 kills with your Super in the Crucible, defeat 50 mini-bosses
  • Mark - Payback Redux mission, 150 void orbs, complete 10 patrols

Warlock

  • Head - Spark Redux mission, 30 kills with your Super in the Crucible, 10 Crucible kills
  • Arms - Homecoming Redux mission, 90 arc orbs in strikes, complete a meditation with Ikora
  • Chest - Chosen Redux mission, 150 solar orbs, complete 10 Heroic public events
  • Legs - 1AU Redux mission, 90 void orbs in the EDZ, defeat 50 mini-bosses
  • Bond - Payback Redux mission, 150 void orbs, complete 10 patrols

Once your armor has been upgraded to Rekindled, you’ll need to complete another set of objectives to further increase its power.

Here is what each class needs to do to upgrade their Rekindled (340 power) set to Resplendent (400 power).

Hunter

  • Head - Chosen Redux mission, 160 void energy weapon kills, complete the Nightfall
  • Arms - Payback Redux mission, 120 void grenade kills, complete three Heroic strikes
  • Chest - 1AU Redux mission, 80 solar power weapon kills, win five non-private Crucible matches
  • Legs - Spark Redux mission, 60 solar melee kills, complete 10 adventures
  • Cloak - Homecoming Redux mission, 200 arc super kills, complete 20 challenges

Titan

  • Head - Chosen Redux mission, 200 solar super kills, complete the Nightfall
  • Arms - Payback Redux mission, 160 solar energy weapon kills, complete three heroic strikes
  • Chest - 1AU Redux mission, 120 arc grenade kills, win five non-private Crucible matches
  • Legs - Spark Redux mission, 60 void melee kills, complete 10 adventures
  • Mark - Homecoming Redux mission, 80 arc power weapon kills, get 500 kills

Warlock

  • Head - Chosen Redux mission, 160 void energy weapon kills, complete the Nightfall
  • Arms - Payback Redux mission, 60 arc melee kills, complete three heroic strikes
  • Chest - 1AU Redux mission, 120 solar grenade kills, win five non-private Crucible matches
  • Legs - Spark Redux mission, 200 arc super kills, complete 10 adventures
  • Bond - Homecoming Redux mission, 80 solar power weapon kills, get 500 kills

Once the armor has been upgraded to Resplendent, it will be at 400 power. However, there is one more upgrade for players to earn.

Here is what each class needs to do to upgrade their Resplendent (400 power) set to a Masterwork Resplendent set (400 power).

Hunter

  • Head - Complete the Prestige Nightfall within the point threshold, which is noted on each strike emblem
  • Arms - Complete five heroic strikes in a group with at least one clanmate
  • Chest - Complete the Prestige Leviathan raid
  • Legs - Reach the Valor rank of Legend in the Crucible
  • Cloak - Defeat 10 bosses

Titan

  • Head - Complete the Prestige Nightfall within the point threshold, which is noted on each strike emblem
  • Arms - Complete five heroic strikes in a group with at least one clanmate
  • Chest - Complete the Prestige Leviathan raid
  • Legs - Reach the Valor rank of Legend in the Crucible
  • Mark - Defeat 10 bosses

Warlock

  • Head - Complete the Prestige Nightfall within the point threshold, which is noted on each strike emblem
  • Arms - Complete five heroic strikes in a group with at least one clanmate
  • Chest - Complete the Prestige Leviathan raid
  • Legs - Reach the Valor rank of Legend in the Crucible
  • Bond - Defeat 10 bosses

Once you’ve unlocked one of the armor sets, there will be an ornament slot that will allow you to go back to the Scorched or Rekindled appearances.

 

So far I feel that this is one of the best events so far. It's diverse, does not include the Raid, it span over several weeks and it can be done completely solo (even if it's a bit hard). The rewards are great as well with armor glows, exotic vehicles,  weapon ornaments and so on. Good job on this one Bungie!
