This Week in Destiny 2

DRAGONS, PORTALS, WISHES, AND TRIUMPHS 

The TWID has been away since last year, but Season of the Wish has never stopped progressing. We have seen some big developments in the story as The Final Shape draws closer. Who would have expected Riven to have such a tragic past? Pretty sure no one sees the Great Ahamkara Hunt the same way now.  

And how about Crow’s heroic moment? The Fifteenth Wish has been granted, Riven’s clutch has been saved, and someone brave and selfless had to take a leap of faith. Crow is now blazing the path for the rest of us, like a true Hunter. The kid has grown so much since he came back to us…  

But this Season’s story isn’t done yet, and there’s more content coming to Season of the Wish sooner than you might think. Ahamkara always keep some aces up their sleeves.  

Starting on January 30, Riven’s Wishes will provide new weekly pursuits that players can complete to redeem a prize of their choosing from a pool of rewards each week, for six straight weeks. That very same day, we’ll also kick off Moments of Triumph 2023, which will offer both in-game and physical Bungie Rewards as well as thirty challenges to honor your last year of achievements.  

We’ll share more information about Riven’s Wishes and Moments of Triumph 2023 in next week’s TWID. 

SPARKLING NEW GLIMMER CAP 

Make it a double. Half a million sparkling little blue pieces of programmable matter. 

We heard you loud and clear, and we are increasing the amount of Glimmer you can carry to 500,000 when Update 7.3.4 drops on January 30.  

Glimmer will still drop from the usual sources, and it will be spent the same way, like crafting weapons, focusing engrams, Masterworking weapons and armor, etc. Your Glimmer wallet will just have an increased capacity. It won’t even weigh more when it’s full. 

THE HELMET NO LONGER STAYS ON 

Let’s see if this sounds familiar: You created a very edgy Awoken when you were a teenager. Maybe you chose some regrettable markings on your Human’s face, or you didn’t coordinate the colors of your Exo’s mouth and eyes. Or perhaps your character’s body type no longer represents who you are.  

No matter the reason, you’ll be able to change your Guardian’s look when character customization goes live in an update before the release of The Final Shape. To do so, you’ll only need to launch Destiny 2 and you’ll notice a new option when you hover over a character at the character selection screen.

You will be able to modify the appearance of your Guardians anytime, without cost or limit to the number of changes. Just take into consideration that while you can change the body type, face, hair/head, and markings, it won’t be possible to change from one origin to another (i.e., Human, Exo, or Awoken).  

In a March update, we’ll be resetting the Synthweave bounty cap to give everyone even more opportunities to customize their look when this feature goes live. We hope being able to customize your characters freely will help you refine—or redefine—your beloved Guardians for years to come. 

ABRACADABRA… ALAK-HUL! 

And now, we look into the future for a moment. Festival of the Lost is our yearly spooky season event,  and we want you all to vote for the armor sets we’ll feature! This is how it works: we show you two armor sets for each class, and you choose your favorites.  

The theme for this year is good wizards vs. evil wizards! Don’t look at us like that, Warlocks. This has almost nothing to do with you. Players will get an email from us in order to vote, or you can use this survey, then we’ll share the results once we have them. Choose wisely! 

GOOD WIZARDS

EVIL WIZARDS

And lastly, a short disclaimer: remember that these are draft concepts. While we don’t intend to change the designs substantially, we always reserve the right to do so. Our art team is composed of masters of their craft, so if they come up with a way to make them even cooler, we want to leave them the space to do what they do best.  

HERE BE DRAGONS 

Sire and Dam. Riven and Taranis. Two lovers whose fate we’ve uncovered at the same time we obtained a very special Exotic Bow born from the selfless sacrifice of an Ahamkara: the Wish-Keeper. This week, we uncovered not only another of Riven’s messages to us, but also the last unlockable perk and catalyst, so what better moment to jump back into the Starcrossed Exotic mission?  

Wish-Keeper is our first-ever Exotic Strand Bow and has unique functionalities. Taking down enemies charges a special hip-fire arrow that creates a web that traps and suspends enemies—very useful for crowd control, but also against Unstoppable Champions. And you also get a faster draw time and extra damage to the enemies entangled by it. Add to that the Strand Artifact perks for the Season, and you have a winning combination. 

BEHOLD, A PLUSHIE OF A THOUSAND VOICES 

For a few weeks, the Bungie Store has housed one of Destiny’s most loosely guarded secrets. The Riven of a Thousand Voices Plush is the latest Bungie Rewards offer and currently in stock. The tentacles in her face even have a bendable skeleton!

A limited number are available to ship now before a pre-order system takes effect, so be sure you have completed the Shooting Stars Triumph in Destiny 2 by June 3, 2024, at 9:59 AM PDT.

PLAYER SUPPORT REPORT 

My last wish would be for it to always be 65 degrees.

Known Issues List  |  Help Forums  |  Bungie Help Twitter

WARLORD’S RUIN TOTEM ISSUES 

We’re investigating an issue where the fix in 7.3.0.5 for Warlord totem spawning has negatively affected all totem spawns in the Warlord’s Ruin dungeon. This fix will be reverted in the January 23 7.3.0.6 update.  

We are continuing to investigate a new fix for a future update. 

REVELER TITLE 

We are aware of the issue where players who met the completion conditions are not able to claim the Dawning Triumph for the Reveler title. Players who completed all the Dawning Event Challenges while the event was active will be granted the associated Reveler Triumph once we are able to implement the fix. 

KNOWN ISSUES 

While we continue investigating various known issues, here is a list of the latest issues that were reported to us in our #Help forum

  • Reprised Dreaming City weapons do not count toward the Cursebreaker title progress. 
  • Some players are unable to use Fireteam Finder while above Guardian Rank 5. 
  • The Karnstein Armlets fingertips no longer glow while the perk is active. 
  • Players are being granted incorrect Triumphs after acquiring Ritual ornaments for the Chivalric Fire Sword. 
  • The Precision Instrument perk does not apply bonus damage against Divinity cages. 
  • The Alpine Dash Sparrow is displaying the wrong speed and is missing the Tuned/Custom Drive options. 
  • The Veil Spectrometer consumable is given to additional characters after another character has completed the quest, making it impossible to remove. 

For a full list of emergent issues in Destiny 2, players can review our Known Issues article. Players who observe other issues should report them to our #Help forum

ONE GUARDIAN, SIX HANDS

Movie of the Week: That’s the weirdest “solo” completion of Warlord’s Ruin we’ve ever seen. 

WONDERFUL ART STYLE!

Art of the Week: For a moment, we thought those weren’t Guardians, but heroes designed by Akihiko Yoshida for a certain beloved JRPG series. Love it!

And that was the first TWID of 2024. We hope you enjoyed the updates. There’s more coming in the next few weeks, and even more in the following months. But for now, let’s focus on the present. Maybe now is the right moment to put your vault in order, chase some great rolls (Heliocentric QSC and Vengeful Whisper are elusive!), and complete a few challenges, like gilding Conqueror or getting a raid Exotic. Just remember to have fun while doing so and take breaks in between intense game sessions.
