Destiny Daily 1/2/18: Weekly Reset, Last Week of the Dawning, A Garden World

Destiny Daily

It’s the first weekly reset of 2018 in Destiny 2. It’s also the last week of The Dawning, which I’ve largely enjoyed. I was fine with the little grind for the daily gifts, and have enjoyed picking up the instant rewards on all three characters after completing the gifts during the first couple of days of the event. All the glimmer I’ve gotten from dismantling the ships has been very helpful to my blowing glimmer on random mods addiction.

Last night, after just about one month since Curse of Osiris released, I finally finished all of my prophecy forge weapons and got the Sagira exotic ghost shell. The weapons themselves, and even the ghost shell for that matter, aren’t really anything special but I definitely enjoyed that grind. And grind I did. The cultures were easy to come by; I farmed a lot of chests and public events. The blossoms were cool, and two of the last three I needed came from soloing the Nightfall. The amplifiers were the pain. Yes, I got some through strikes and a lot through Mayhem. But the bulk of my amplifiers came from doing Heroic Adventures on Mercury. I’ve done 51 of them over the past month, and will continue to do them even though the rewards are crap. I appreciate that it is the most challenging content in the game that can easily be solo’d and doesn’t have a timer. I just wished they reset daily.

While the Destiny 2 weekly reset has happened today, tomorrow I’m planning on posting the first edition of the newly reformatted Destiny Weekly here on the site. That opinion piece will run down my thoughts on the most recent issue the community has come down extremely hard on, Eververse.

Until then, let’s dive right into today’s Destiny Daily with a look at the weekly reset stuff first and then the daily challenges at the end.

Heroic Adventure Modifiers

Heroic Adventures can be acquired by Brother Vance in the Lighthouse on Mercury, and should reset daily (but are bugged and do not). If you can do them today, here are the modifiers:

  • Attrition: Health and shield regeneration slow down, but killing foes may create wells of Light that restore health and charge your Super.
  • From the Shadows: Increased running and crouching speed. Melee recharges faster and deals more damage. Grenades recharge slower.

Yesterday I said I hate Momentum, well I hate Attrition ever worse.
