Destiny 2: Beyond Light has been almost solely focused on the newest location of Europa. The Season of the Hunt has taken Guardians to the Tangled Shores and Dreaming City, but most activities on older locations have been neglected by players. Additionally, much of the gear that was issued in previous seasons will sunset in upcoming seasons. This system has therefore not provided Guardians with much incentive to engage with older content. Destiny 2 developers Bungie are thankfully making a few changes to make outdated gear and activities relevant again. Destiny 2 will soon reissue the Dreaming City's Reverie Dawn armor, Moon’s Dreambane armor, and a total of eight weapons. Season 13 will... Read more...
