The developers of Bungie want to offer all newcomers, but also veterans and returnees of Destiny 2, a better overview of the constantly recurring challenges. For fear of missing out on loot such as shiny dust or top-quality equipment, the loot shooter players log in at least once a week and sometimes torment their way through game content that they don't really enjoy. To mitigate that, Season 13 of Destiny 2 is coming with Seasonal Challenges, replacing the weekly forays of Zavala, Shaxx, Vagabond, Banshee-44, and the Seasonal Merchant. With this, the Bungie devs want to achieve the following goals:
- Provide a guide for new, returning, and veteran players on what to do today / this week.
- Take the player through the seasonal content week after week.
- Encourage players to grapple with the complexities and nuances of seasonal activities and rituals.
- Reduce the EP and Gloss Dust penalties for missing a specific week.
You will find the seasonal challenges in the future on a separate page via the quest log or the season pass. They are separated after weeks and an important piece of information on the topic in advance: They do not expire. So if you don't log in for a week, you can still catch up on the seasonal challenges. The Bungie devs:
"Here's a quick explanation of what this feature looks like:
- Each week, for the first 10 weeks of a season, between 3 and 10 new challenges automatically appear for the players.
- Some of the challenges relate to the seasonal content.
- Others induce players to complete Strikes, Gambit, and the Crucible, or focus on non-activity-oriented Destiny rituals, such as E.g. collecting power, unlocking seasonal artifact mods or upgrading weapons and armor.
- These challenges can only be completed once per account, but once available they can be completed anytime before the end of the season and do not need to be started or picked up from a merchant.
- For example, if a player doesn't play in weeks 2 through 4, they can come back in week 5 and all of these challenges are waiting for them!
- XP is awarded for completing each challenge to add to your Season Pass ranks.
- Other rewards can be shiny dust, seasonal currency, or other useful items! "
The developers of Destiny 2 (buy now € 8.95 ) Seasonal Challenges allow you to set more specific and interesting tasks, such as defeating primeval envoy in the Gambit, defeating enemies in "Twilight: The Trial by Fire" with seasonal weapons, earning nefarious or bravery ranks, earning ritual weapons and their cosmetic ornaments, rounds in Win Trials of Osiris or complete a Top Runner Dawn. By the way, around 60 percent of the seasonal challenges can be completed without a season pass. And not everything changes with the ritual vendors, banshee and the seasonal vendor – daily forays for experience points as well as repeatable forays for XP and shiny dust remain with you.
With the seasonal challenges, the way you earn shiny dust is also being screwed up. Above all, the players who play only one character should not fall behind as much as Destiny fans who play three characters. By abolishing the weekly raids, you will earn between 75 and 300 Bright Dust per ritual activity (strike, crucible, gambit) from season 13 onwards. Those who complete almost all of the seasonal challenges will also receive a one-off batch of 4,000 shiny dust. Each character can still get hold of 120 shiny dust per week for the ritual trader challenge, the completion of eight forays for example.
In summary, you will likely earn the following amounts of Bright Dust with Season 13 in Destiny 2:
Bright Dust: Seasonal Challenges (All Players)
- Free seasonal activities – 6,000
- Seasonal extra – 4,000
- Total – 10,000 gloss dust
Season pass gloss dust
- Free Path – 7,500 (all players)
- Paid Path – 3,000 (players who have a season pass)
- In total – 10,500 gloss dust
Bright Dust: Weekly Ritual Trader Challenge (All Players)
- 120 Bright Dust per Ritual Vendor per character per week
- 14,040 total for completing all required Weekly Challenges in Season 13
