Destiny 2: Armour rolls in Solstice of Heroes
Players will be able to upgrade and update their armour as normal throughout the course of the event. However, once they have reached the highest tier, players can re-roll their armour to get even better stats in the game.
The following steps will help players in understanding how to go about this whole process:
- Players will be in line to get a new form of currency called Kindling, which is earned after finishing Event Card challenges.
- You can now make use of the Kindling in order to upgrade the Solstice armour, which will better the potential stat limit triple fold.
- Now, to re-roll your armour, you will need Silver Leaves. They are gotten from the game’s normal activities. Then, players have to turn the Silver Leaves into Silver Ash through the newly added Bonfire Bash activity.
- With the Silver Ash, players can re-roll separate armour pieces to make them fully perfect.
- Having done it once, players can repeat all the steps for pieces of different slots or only the final two steps if pieces are from the same slot.
Therefore, the new system is a brand-new one from the old versions. Players should relish the new challenges, and keep winning events to have the best chances. The Solstice of Heroes promises to be a rewarding experience for everyone involved.
