You’ve sought the Truth, and found it. You’ve lit your path through darkness with Lumina. Now, Calus is mixing things up a little. In case you’ve been out of the loop, an imperial invitation is waiting for you in the robotic hands of Werner-99 on Nessus. Guardians have been earning a menagerie of loot since the beginning of the season. Now we’re entering a time of celebration. Moments of Triumph and the Tribute Hall became available on Tuesday, each of which commemorate your accomplishments as a Guardian.
The Tribute Hall comes with a small price to pay. Calus couldn’t make things too easy for you, now could he? You’re a Guardian after all. As you enter the Tribute Hall, you’re greeted by walls of gold and platforms to place trophies representing your history within Destiny 2. Each trophy requires a sign of your devotion, ranging from an offering of planetary materials to glimmer. Calus offers you four bounties a day to earn discounts for each trophy, so if you’re strapped for Data-Lattice or Bright Dust, you can eventually work your way to a far lower price.
After placing a few of your trophies, Calus brings a little Bad Juju to the fold…
Alongside your hall of tributes, Moments of Triumph are available to complete. While some Triumphs won’t be available until Solstice of Heroes, players can start gaining progress towards the Moments of Triumph 2019 Seal. For more info, make sure to check out the Bungie Day blog post.
Last week, we had the privilege to spend some face–to-face time with players at GuardianCon (now known as GCX) in Orlando, Florida. Moments like these are refreshing, as many of us started in the same community that we were celebrating throughout the weekend. If you weren’t able to make it to the event, there are recaps of the Bungie Opening Ceremony and the Whisper/Zero Hour Ride Along available on Twitch.
World First Titles were awarded to representatives of their fireteams. Never call these trophies just ‘belts’, or Big Show might show up on your doorstep with a few choice words. Guardians also spent some quality time with Eris, and we can’t thank Morla enough for her marathon signing sessions.
Happy Bungie Day!
Still taking it all in. Will have a lot of moments to share over the next few days.
To everyone who took a chance in our Risk/Reward matches, thanks for stopping by! Good games were had and loot was earned. It’s always a blast hosting Crucible matches at events and we loved watching players that had never met before overcoming some pre-formed fireteams. Never underestimate your opponents, no matter how strong the bond with your fireteam may be.
Whatever the name is, it’s humbling to know that there’s an event that began with a bunch of Guardians meeting up at a bar to enjoy each other’s company. We’re excited for the future of the Gaming Community Expo. Maybe we’ll see you there next year.
Blinding the Well
No matter how much you prepare, a little bug may crawl into your luggage and find itself on a one way trip to the Dreaming City. The Player Support team has been navigating the waters of the #Help forum, gathering information on what players are seeing in the wild since Destiny 2 Update 18.104.22.168 went live.
This is their report.
Destiny 2 Update 22.214.171.124
This week, we deployed Destiny 2 Update 126.96.36.199 to players. Here’s a sampling of issues resolved with this release:
Resolved an issue where players could not activate the Witch’s Vessel in the Crown of Sorrow raid without a team wipe, blocking flawless runs.
Resolved an issue blocking the Drifter and Vanguard Allegiance quests from progressing.
Resolved an issue where Werner 99-40's weekly bounties no longer gave powerful rewards.
Resolved issues where Sturm did not reload non-Drang sidearms, and would play reload audio on every kill.
Additionally, as of today’s background maintenance, issues encountered by players in the Blind Well have been resolved. Players who visit the Blind Well in the Dreaming City should be able to spend any-tier Charge of Light to once again initiate this activity.
Listed below are the latest player-impacting issues discovered in Season of Opulence, as reported by players to the #Help forum.
Ryzen 3000 CPU: We are investigating player reports directly with AMD, where players describe being unable to launch Destiny 2 with Ryzen 3000 series CPUs on PC.
Countdown and Survival Crucible: We are investigating an issue where players cannot be revived upon death in Countdown and Survival Crucible matches after Update 188.8.131.52.
Conflux Lost Sector Imperials: We're investigating an issue where players slot a rune before the required quest step in the introductory "An Imperial Summons" quest, blocking them from completing the rest of the quest.
Drink Deep Triumph: We're investigating an issue where this triumph doesn't unlock for all players who claim the Masterwork slot in the Chalice of Opulence.
Lastly, this week we’d like to clear up a recent miscommunication regarding the Bungie Foundation’s iPadsforKids fundraiser donation reward.
In an in-game message, we incorrectly stated that players who donate $50 or more would receive the Sign of our City emblem. The actual emblem for participating in this fundraiser is the System of Peace. To correct this issue, any player whose donation qualifies for this emblem will receive both emblems after July 14.

If you’d like to put your name in the hat for Movie of the Week, make sure to post your content to the Community Creations page on Bungie.net, or throw a video to myself or Cozmo on twitter.
Teams throughout the studio are hitting Shadowkeep hard. From Cross Save to [REDACTED], we’re on seek and destroy missions to eliminate bugs and ensure a smooth launch in September. Exciting times, to say the least, but we’re looking forward to sharing more details with you soon. Cozmo and I are planning some deep-dive TWAB’s between now and launch to give you a clear view on the changes coming to Destiny 2.
Until then, we’ve still got some fun in store for the remainder of the season, waiting for you in the Solstice of Heroes event. More on that coming soon…
