Hey all, Muzzy here. As revealed in [url=https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=NjxUFCSmaO0&feature=youtu.be]this video by Playstation[/url] at around the 4:00 mark, we are regaining our powers via a Shard of the Traveler near the European Dead Zone. But what if I told you that this information isn’t new and that we’ve known it for a while?
In the Age of Triumph update, the Speaker was given several pieces of idle dialogue, most of them pertaining to Destiny 2. Consider the following quote: [quote]There are survivors out there. Not all of them want to join us beneath the Traveler.[/quote] This is most likely referring to Hawthorne and the settlement known as the Farm, which will be the primary social space for the campaign.
The Speaker also makes a bunch of other little interesting comments as well in his idle dialogue: [quote]There are rumors that the Shard still exists. I feel its pull.
The journey will be dangerous, but if we could find the Shard...
There are Ghosts searching the Dead Zone. Perhaps they'll find something there.[/quote]As we now know, the Shard provides a means for Guardians to reclaim their power in D2. Ulan-Tan theorized that all Light is connected across space and time. Since this Shard isn't connected to the main body of the Traveler, it isn't being subjected to the Cabal's interference. For more on Ulan-Tan and his theory on the Light, I refer you to [url=https://www.bungie.net/en/Forums/Post/226799764?page=0&sort=0&showBanned=0&path=0]this post[/url].
Credit for finding this dialogue goes to Haffoc. He and I talked about the dialogue a lot when it first came out and together, we theorized that we would actually find a shard of the Traveler to regain our Light in Destiny 2. Obviously, that’s now confirmed, and we were pretty elated to find out that we had guessed right.
Haffoc doesn’t write lore posts like I do, but if you look around on the lore tag here on the bungie forums, you’ll be sure to find his stuff. He spends his time perusing the lore tag and commenting on various posts and threads, so you can his stuff scattered in there.
As for me, you can find more of my stuff in the [url=https://www.bungie.net/en/Forum/Post/226603797/0/0]Muzzy Archive[/url].
there was a mission on the moon i forget which where the hive had acquired a shard of the traveler to poison it using magic. still any light that a shard contains may very well be seperate from the main body and not subject to any shared conditions.
