Destiny's Last Live Event Makes It Easier To Collect Everything You Missed
Bungie shares more about Age of Triumph's modified activities.
Today's livestream, the second in a series of three, focused on updated activities and new ways to acquire items. Many of these activities center around acquiring a Treasure of Ages, which is a new box that contains everything Destiny's Live team has ever released. With it, you'll be able to pick up all of the past armor, emblems, emotes, masks, ships, and ornaments you might have missed out on, including Desolate Taken Armor, Spektar armor, and the ghost version of Ghost. Opening a Treasure of Ages also gives you a chance to earn brand-new items, including armor that will be revealed during next week's stream.
In addition to activity rewards, you can purchase a Treasure of Ages from Eververse. Alternatively, you can seek out specific things you've missed through the updated Silver Dust kiosk, where you can directly purchase specific ornaments and other things mission from your collection. If you have any Silver Dust left over, you can freely spend it here--there won't be more items coming to Destiny in the future to save it for.
As seen in the stream (watch a replay below), you'll kick off the Age of Triumph event by talking to The Speaker to receive a new quest that consists of about 12 steps. The first part of this sends you into the new Weekly Story playlist, which is a 380 Light level activity. This spares you the trouble of having to get online every day to play the Daily Story Mission, as it brings together every story mission from the game and allows you to play them in one playlist at your leisure. Each week will feature a specific selection of missions--such as those from Venus and Mars, or the Earth and Moon--with various modifiers, which is something that hasn't been done with story missions in quite a while. Your first five completions for the week each provide 20 Legendary Marks, with the first also netting you a Treasure of Ages.
Two more Treasure of Ages can be obtained for free each week--one for your first completion of the Siva Crisis Heroic playlist and one for the Weekly Crucible. That provides you with a total of three free boxes per week.
Another updated activity is the 380 Light level Weekly Nightfall Strike playlist. Scoring is enabled and the Nightfall buff has returned, letting you show off in the Tower and gain an XP boost for the rest of the week by completing it. A new modifier is also being introduced called Daybreak, which makes all combatants tougher but provides players with the equivalent of Crucible's Mayhem buff, where your various cooldowns are much faster. This will be available once every four weeks, although it'll also be turned on for a six-week stretch in July and August where you'll really be able to go wild.
Finally, Challenge of the Elders is being raised to 390 Light level. Your first three completions of the week provide 10 Legendary Marks each, and this activity doesn't replace the existing version, which you'll still find on the Reef node.
Bungie will host its third and final stream devoted to Age of Triumph next Wednesday, March 22, where it'll reveal the event's new armor, among other things; last week's talked about reviving old raids.
The update itself is slated to arrive the following week, on March 28. It's meant to serve as a final hurrah for the game before the launch of its sequel this fall.
