Destiny 2 Solstice of Heroes 2019 Datamine Reveals Quests and More

Share this:

Over on Reddit one user, JpDeathBlade, has posted a list of datamined information for Destiny 2 Solstice of Heroes 2019. The event is scheduled to begin on July 30 2019, but this datamine reveals almost all of the content for it a week before it’s even begun.

During Solstice of Heroes players take part in revamped versions of missions from Destiny 2 in order to celebrate their victories for Humanity. These missions also allow players to upgrade some new armour for the event, which is usually slightly above the current Power Level limit.

Destiny 2 Solstice of Heroes 2019 will take place between July 30 and August 27 2019, and more information on it isn’t due out until tomorrow. JpDeathBlade emphasises that this data could be subject to change, and may even be planted by Bungie in an effort to get one over on dataminers, but for now the following is all of the information found on Destiny 2 Solstice of Heroes 2019 datamined info.

Quests

Opener:

The event begins with Eva Levante in the Tower. She will be in her usual spot next to Ikora. She will give you the drained armor set:

  • Eva is glad to see you. She congratulates your contributions to the defense of the City, then tells you that this year’s Solstice is special—Ikora, along with a small group of Warlocks, have come up with an unusual surprise… but she’s not spilling the secret. You’ll have to go see for yourself.
  • As you finish your exploration of the Aerial Zone, Ghost receives a message from Eva herself. She’d like to speak to you at your earliest convenience.
  • “Isn’t it a marvelous idea!” Eva exclaims as you approach. “An island in the sky. My goodness. When I was a little girl, I read stories about such things, but you Guardians can actually make them real.”

This will take you to the European Aerial Zone to run through the event for your first time:

  • Ghost receives coordinates to a literal floating island somewhere off the coast of the Winding Cove in the European Dead Zone. It’s been cheekily dubbed “The European Aerial Zone,” and apparently it’s an excellent place to perform combat drills and meditate.

Afterwards you will return to Eva and she will reward you with the Drained Armor Set and ask you to Meditate:

  • She sighs, sobering as she offers you a gift: a set of ruined armor from the Red War. “But of course, the Solstice is more than just floating islands. Take this armor to the Statue of Heroes, dear. Try to think about everyone who came before you, everyone who made it possible to stand here in this Tower today”
  • Eva has suggested you take the drained armor she’s given you and meditate with it at the Statue of Heroes in the Tower courtyard.
  • Meditating at the statue has infused your new armor with the Light but its connection to the Traveler could be made stronger.
  • You tell Eva about your meditation. She nods. “The greatest thing we can do to honor those we’ve lost is to live well and be our best selves. Take that armor. Go out into the world. Reforge it. Make it into a symbol of something strong and proud and beautiful.”

Upgrading Armor

Each armor set has a slew of objectives that you need to complete in order to upgrade the armor set. I’ve listed them below. Here are the quest steps:

  • ngthen your Drained Solstice armor set’s connection to the Light by completing armor objectives.
  • With your completed Drained Solstice armor set equipped, return to the Statue of Heroes to meditate.
  • Strengthen your Renewned Solstice armor set’s connection to the Light by completing armor objectives.
  • With your completed Renewed Solstice armor set equipped, return to the Statue of Heroes to meditate.

There’s also a line that calls the Statue of Heroes the “Statue of Triumph”. A misspelling probably, like Renewed is in the line above.

Finding Your Voice

There’s a few quests that involve our Guardians talking, or at least, there’s text that says that we talk. I’ve only recently started keeping a database of all the subtitles/audio files in the game so I can’t see if anything new has been added but I’ll have more info when the next patch goes live.

  • Your voice moves as a whisper, murmuring inside larger winds. Only the trusted few can absorb what is necessary.
  • Wise and sly and perfect, your instructions drop, leaving nothing but the hard sweet rime of enlightenment.
  • The best voices, voices that truly matter, never allow themselves be heard. This lesson is worth learning again and again. Forever.
  • Your voice is unleashed.

The quest names seem to make a sentence: From the Ashes… A New Flame… Kindles to Life… And Lights the Way… Into the Future.

The last one gives a reward from Eva Levante. It’s a consumable that all the Solstice Bounties also give which I’ll talk about below.

UPDATE: Looks like these text strings have been in Destiny before in the Grimoire Card Ghost Fragment: Moon.

Ghost Quotes

  • “I’m glad I didn’t lose you.” – Ghost
  • “There’s got to be a joke here. How many Warlocks does it take to make an island float?” – Ghost
  • “The Red War feels like yesterday, sometimes. I wonder whose armor this was.” – Ghost
  • “I’m hearing a lot of comms chatter about some kind of floating island in the European Dead Zone. Wonder if it has anything to do with the Solstice.” – Ghost
  • “She sounds really excited. I think it’s nice that she gets so excited.” – Ghost

Empowerment

Defeat enemies with a Super or elemental weapon attack to create Elemental Orbs. Collecting Elemental Orbs that match the element of the day grants you Empowerment.

European Aerial Zone

The Vanguard is dispatching Guardians to the EAZ for combat drills and meditation. Join them.

We got our first glimpse at the EAZ in the Season of Opulence Trailer posted May 28th, 2019. In the trailer, at around 20 seconds, we can see 5 Guardians fighting Cabal in a new area. This seems like the activity will be a six player matchmade event.

The EAZ is made up of 7 different zones:

  • Meditation Grounds
  • Ruin
  • Town
  • Factory
  • Mall
  • Garage
  • Courtyard

Each day a different energy will fill the air and allow you to become Empowered:

  • Solar energies blast through the EAZ, filling the air with the smell of sunbaked earth
  • Arc energies crackle through the EAZ, filling the air with the smell of ozone
  • Void energies pulse through the EAZ, filling the air with the smell of potential

While these are active, you can run similar energies to generate orbs:

  • Equip your Solar subclass and weapons to generate Solar orbs, then collect them to become Solar Empowered. While empowered, Guardians emit a burning wave of energy
  • Equip your Arc subclass and weapons to generate Arc orbs, then collect them to become Arc Empowered. While empowered, Guardians emit an electrifying wave of energy
  • Equip your Void subclass and weapons to generate Void orbs, then collect them to become Void Empowered. While empowered, Guardians emit a searing wave of energy

The event strings make it seem like it will be almost like a solo Gambit match. With multiple bosses/waves for the player to kill within a time limit:

  • Time remaining
  • Target neutralized
  • Progress
  • Eliminate minibosses
  • Defeat all bosses

Each wave is filled with Cabal, and they get get reinforcements:

  • An Engineer arrives to support the Cabal
  • A Mosquito arrives to support the Cabal

There seems to also be a High Value Target, called a Prismatic Taken, that spawns as well:

  • Hunt for Prismatic Taken
  • A Prismatic Taken is roaming nearby
  • The Prismatic Taken has escaped
  • Defeat Prismatic Taken hiding near the [ZONE NAME].
  • Prismatic Taken Centurion
  • Prismatic Taken Knight
  • Prismatic Taken Captain

And possibly waves that aren’t about killing bosses, but opening hidden chests:

  • Hidden chests
  • Chests looted
  • Hidden chests will appear throughout the area when the timer runs out. Get ready to look for them
  • Search for hidden chests as time allows
  • Something secret is hidden nearby

Enemies

I’ve got a list of enemy names you can view here. I’m not sure which ones are from which event, but they are all new to the game. All the boss names for EAZ should be in here, if anyone wants to dig through that. My best guess is the Uprooted enemyes and some Unbowed Legion fellas. And who is “Ir Abassin, Broodlost”?

Solstice Packages

Solstice Packages are sealed packages containing untold treasures from the European Aerial Zone. To open them you need to combine them with Solstice Key Fragments. There is a consumable that is rewarded by Eva and the Solstice Bounties which will aid in this called a Fragment Magnet. This consumable item attracts Solstice Key Fragments at an alarming rate. Use at your own risk. It looks like this might be mixed in with a questline as well with “Key to Power” and “The Treasure Hunt”

Other Rewards

Eva use to have THREE Sparrows attached to her:

But now they have been replaced with a new one:

There is also a section of text that mentions needing the Majestice Solstice armor set. Maybe for a reward?

  • Requires the Titan-class Majestic Solstice armor set
  • Requires the Hunter-class Majestic Solstice armor set
  • Requires the Warlock-class Majestic Solstice armor set

Two new shaders:

  • Pomegranate Gloss
  • Tangerine Gloss

UPDATE: Thanks to /u/Ginsor reaching out. The sparrow is “EV-37 Voidstreak” with the Description ” Collect the Solstice Legendary Armor sets on all three classes.” This sparrow is from Destiny 1.

Tess

Some Solstice items are visible through Tess. I’ve listed a few below:

There also looks to be at least:

  • 3 Exotic Ghosts (Shaded SHell, Jubilant Shell, Buoy Shell)
  • 2 Exotic Vehicles (Solstice Hymnal, Lightning Rider, Micro Mini, or Legacy-2)
  • 1 Exotic Ship (Summertide Kite)
  • 2 Legendary Ghost Projections
  • 4 Rare Ghost Projections
  • 2 Transmat Effects
  • 6 Bundles

The Bundles are Seasonal Armor Sets and Armor Glow sets:

  • This bundle contains a complete seasonal armor set for Hunters. One-time purchase
  • This bundle contains a complete seasonal armor set for Warlocks. One-time purchase

Tess is also selling a consumable for Bright Dust that is Classified. Another thing that I never noticed until now is that Tess’s inventory seems to be pretty fixed on what it will give instead of being random. But that’s a post for another time if anyone is interested.

UPDATE: Thanks to /u/Ginsor for reaching out. This item is a “Solstice Key Fragment”. Looks like you can get some from Tess as well.

MMXIX

The remaining two Triumphs for the Solstice Seal are:

  • Obtain the complete Majestic Solstice of Heroes 2019 armor set
  • Masterwork any piece of Majestic Solstice armor

Solar Week

There are a few lines about Solar Week that I mentioned in my last post but I want to hit on them again here:

…has swept the system, imbuing all Guardians with enhanced Solar energy. In response, Lord Saladin has declared a week of celebration.

  • Many Solar subclass paths have been refreshed and improved. Visit bungie.net for more details.
  • Many Tower vendors are offering bounties to Solar-wielders. Complete them in style by participating in Solar Singe activities.
  • New Solar-themed emotes are now available at the Eververse store.

I’ve been keeping track of different events in the game and Iron Banner seems to run just about every FOUR weeks. With Iron Banner starting tomorrow, this would suggest that Solar Week will run along side the last Iron Banner of the Season. If my guessing is correct that should be August 20th, the last week of Solstice of Heroes.

Go now, relive your glory. And friend? Have a happy Solstice!

I want to say a huge thank you to the people who put all of this together, as a hardcore Destiny 2 player this is super interesting. We already knew a little about Destiny 2 Solstice of Heroes 2019 because we’ve played it before. Last year we had armor that needed to be upgraded by playing revamped versions of old missions, wearing said armor. The armor starts out at a really low Power Level, making these missions even harder, but as each piece is upgraded they get better and more viable to use in the game.

The steps to upgrade the armor look like they’re similar to last year, but what stands out to me is the Majestic Armor. I’ve seen this mentioned as part of Moments of Triumph 2019 for Destiny 2, but I don’t know what it is. Here it’s theorised that it’s a reward, but for what? Maybe once you’ve Masterworked every bit of the armor for Destiny 2 Solstice of Heroes 2019, you get this unique armor to signify how well you performed. With Armor 2.0 coming to Destiny 2 with Shadowkeep, we’ll be able to use the armor as an ornament, and keep the look of it to show off to all players in the future. I personally think that’s where we’re going with this, but maybe there’s something more.
