Here’s everything you need to know about Destiny 2: Season of the Wish.
Season of the Wish Guides
Be careful what you wish for, because a reality-warping dragon might twist your words and give you more than what you bargained for. That’s the general warning when dealing with Ahamkara, paracausal beings that have a habit of picking up on the desires of individuals and monkey-pawing their wants into twisted forms of wish fulfillment. The return of the Ahamkara in Destiny 2 wraps up a story thread that has been around for years now and was hinted at in Forsaken’s Last Wish raid.
Season of the Wish seasonal Activity
This season’s new matchmade activity is Riven’s Lair, a new arena full of Hive and Scorn who are looking to impede your progress. A little bit of Exotic firepower should help solve that small hurdle.
Season of the Wish Legendary-class Weapons
Supercluster – Strand shotgun
Scatter Signal – Strand fusion rifle
Appetence – Stasis trace rifle
Scalar Potential – Arc pulse rifle
Lethophobia – Void bow
Doomed Petitioner – Void linear fusion rifle
Season of the Wish seasonal Challenges
Like in previous seasons, you’ll be able to challenge yourself with extra tasks that offer some great rewards. Typically, there are around 10 weeks of seasonal challenges to pursue at your leisure, and completing all of them will reward you with a massive pile of Bright Dust.
Season of the Wish Exotic weapon: Dragon’s Breath
Dragon’s Breath is the season pass Exotic for Destiny 2: Season of the Wish, and is a returning Exotic from the original Destiny. However, Dragon’s Breath’s perks barely reflect the weapon it once was.
In Destiny 2, Dragon’s Breath’s Exotic trait is Composite Propellant, which causes rockets to embed themselves in targets and periodically eject incendiary fuel that inflicts Scorch. The longer you go without firing Dragon’s Breath, the more fuel its next rocket will contain. Its Exotic perk is High Octane, which causes you to regain some fuel when igniting a target and causes Dragon’s Breath to reload itself from reserves once it reaches max fuel. This is an interesting new direction for Dragon’s Breath, as it seems to be good at both killing big bosses and burning up any minions around them.
