Destiny 2 Season of Dawn |OT| "I'm still trying."

We defended the moon and fought back against our own nightmares, then we dove into the Black Garden striking at a heart of the Vex war machine. In doing so we emboldened the Vex. In response an old foe "The Undying Mind" re-established itself within the Vex Network making thousands of copies across respective timelines with a goal of sealing entry to the enigmatic Black Garden.

With the Help of Ikora Rey and Zavala we constructed a Portal and dragged each and ever copy of The Undying Mind into our reality and slayed them. Our actions are not without consequences. By killing The Undying Mind we have undone the course of history, Time is Broken, Mercury is an epicentre of this fracture and Red Legions Psions are attempting to rewrite the ending of the Red War.

Hope is not lost, Our ally Osiris has had his own dealings with Time and a device of his own construction "The Sundial" is uniquely position for us to combat the Red Legion threat and maybe even fulfil it's original purpose of helping a friend of his cheat death


The Sundial is a new 6-player PVE matchmade activity that has players step inside Osiris's otherworldly construction and travel through time taking on a menagerie of challenges.

*Ton of loot not guaranteed.


The Sundial gives us a unique opportunity to assist Osiris in fixing his biggest regret and saving the Legendary Saint-14

I'd like to say a HUGE thanks to the following members for their contributions to the OT, DestinyEra as a community or both. In no particular order

Season of Dawn has had a very guarded reveal so the OP doesn't have a TONNE of info (and I put it together kind of last min :P) Normally I end an OT with a bit of a general retrospective but if I'm going to be doing Seasonal OT's I'll forgo that. As always on behalf of myself and DestinyEra I would like to say that we know Destiny is far from a perfect and while public opinion seems to be positive for it it does still carry some level of ire from a subset of posters, obviously everyone and all opinions are welcome but If possible I'd like to suggest posters prior to posting just think to them selves "does this comment add anything to a discussion or will it just derail a thread"

From all of DestinyEra "Per Audacia ad astra"

I chose like a week before Season of Dawn's announcement that I'm gonna return to Titan as my main class of choice. I have very good timing.

I would have liked another week of down time before a new season kicked off but I know the FOMO will kick in and I'll be grinding the season pass like a maniac

Pls let Sundial activity be good. Also I hope whatever Obelisks are they are more entertaining than the Vex Moon Invasions.

You have 3 months, not sure where the FOMO is. Assuming you did Shadowkeep content (which is why Undying felt short) you only have to worry about the Sundial now

For new players, have fun out there

Are we anticipating prime engrams and powerful rewards to get a cap raise as a result of max base PL boost from 950 to 960?

I’m definitely gonna continue using Izanagi’s in my kinetic slot in PvE as long as it won’t get nerfed. Probably gonna use an energy pulse this season to make use of the artifact mods. Not sure which one though. I always used Blast Furnace and the exotic Pulses (Outbreak and JuJu) in Year 2, but they’re either kinetic or exotic which means no mod slot.

Which pulse rifle archetypes do u guys prefer to use and got any good recommendations for energy pulse rifles?

Right Side of Wrong is a great one, I think. Rips arse in PVP and is alright in PVE too. Horrors Least is another recommended one.

*Takes a big whiff*

I love the smell of vex milk in the morning.



Edit: should have been Time-Gated Content.

Starting to think Stalker is doing this on purpose.

Inaugural address is void pulse which is quite good. Mercury pulse is also energy which should return this season.

I don't get the OT title, the time gate one was so good...
Perfect paradox Lore Tab

I never found Osiris, but I've killed enough Vex to end a war. And they, in turn, struck a fatal blow: they completed a Mind with the sole function to drain the Light from me. It worked very well. Don't worry (not that you worry much). It took them centuries to build, keyed to the unique frequency of my Light. And I sit atop its shattered husk. I mourn that I will never reach the heights you have. To me, you represent everything a Guardian can become. Yours is a thriving City. So different from mine. My whole fourteenth life I fought to make my City yours. I never finished. All I have left is this weapon. The Cryptarchs say you crafted it yourself, built it out of scraps and Light and sheer will, inside the Infinite Forge. I'll make sure it finds its way back to you. When you gave it to me, I swore I would make it my duty to follow your example. I'm still trying. —Saint-14

Hit level 100 last night for last season. Hope I can manage to make it through all 100 again!

I'll play this season since I paid for it but maybe not as much as I did last season seeing that there isn't much new content. I'll still enjoy some Iron Banner for sure.

Ahh, I completely forgot to make my final push for legend. I managed to get halfway through the last circle. Rip.

At least now I can use my favourite pvp loadotus without feeling utterly hamstrung by not taking OEM.

Outlast from GPrime/Reckoning is fantastic. Also well rolled Adhortative is great. Claws from Iron Banner

Demi gave you that OT title on a silver platter, and you refer to some lore? The depths...of depravity.

Seems only fitting to play with my Ward of Dawn Titan first but I guess the season is solar focused? In any case looking forward to any new content (as always) although I expect it to dry up up rather quickly.
