How to Get the Solstice of Heroes Armor for All Three Classes in Destiny 2
The Solstice of Heroes event is now live for Destiny 2 and features a new Solstice of Heroes armor set. Guardians are invited to return to the tower, talk to a statue (yes) and then relive some of their triumphs through new remixed campaign missions, and the moment of triumphs challenges. The latter should be familiar to Destiny 1 players, as it was a requirement for getting some exclusive vanity gear in the first game in addition to a real-life t-shirt. That is the case once again in Destiny 2. Completing Destiny 2 Moment of Triumph bounties which for the most part are a tour of the first year of Destiny including the Solstice of Heroes event, provides you with vanity items such as emblems, to show off.
If you’re here though, you’re wondering how to get the Solstice of Heroes Armor set for one of the three classes in Destiny 2: Hunter, Titan, and Warlock. To get the armor set, you’ll need to complete a manageable but time-consuming quest, that will upgrade the scorched armor set from the beginning of the game back to its original glory.
To start, first, go to the Tower and talk to the statue. You’ll be transported to a new area and Ikora Ray will send you to replay the mission Homecoming. After completing that, return to the Tower and talk to the new big statue in the middle. You’ll receive a new set of Uncommon (green) Solstice Armor (Scorched). To bring up to 400 power level, you’ll need to complete a series of increasingly difficult challenges. We’re still working through the first part, but it’s as simple as reading the directions on the armor.
For example, the Solstice of Heroes Helm (Scorched) for Titans requires you to Complete the Spark Redux mission, collect Arc Orbs (anywhere), and defeat guardians in the Crucible.
If you’re wondering why elemental Orb generation isn’t counting on some armor, you need to make sure you’re A: Wearing the full armor set to actually generate the elemental orbs B: use the appropriate weapon damage/ability, and C: fulfill the requirement. For example, The Solstice of Heroes Gauntlets (Scorched) only counts Solar orbs that are obtained in Strikes. So make sure that you carefully read what the directions are on the Destiny 2 Solstice of Heroes Armor set and fulfill the correct requirements.
As we work through the Destiny 2 Solstice of Heroes armor set quest, we’ll update this post if the requirements for obtaining the higher power level versions radically change. For now, we’re going out on a limb that it will continue to be just following the directions on each individual piece and then turning them back in.
