Ways To Prepare For Season 19 In Destiny 2 – The upcoming season of Destiny 2 is almost around the corner. On December 6th, Season of the Plunder will come to an end, so it is time to wrap up any last-minute tasks and be ready. Despite the fact that you don’t need to store up on bounties to enjoy a new season, there are a few things you can do right away to save time when it finally arrives.
Next season’s subclass overhauls won’t be happening, so now is the time to polish your builds, gather bounties, and get some god rolls. Today, we’ll look at seven suggestions that every player should follow to get ready for Season 19.
The suggestions are provided in no particular order.
Clean Out Your Vault
You should clear out your vault before each new season as is customary. It’s a good idea to get rid of any extra armour, weapons, and other supplies you may have stored in your vault during the course of the season. Near the beginning of a season, many players store levelling items and other inventory items in their Vault. These things can be taken apart without risk.
Here’s what we advise if your vault is still loaded down with tonnes of items:
- Builds can be created using your armour with D2ArmorPicker. When finished, disassemble any non-Exotic armour that isn’t being worn.
- Disassemble duplicates, failed rolls, and anything you haven’t used in a year for weapons (unless it has sentimental value).
Just doing so will free up several pages in your vault, giving you room to add new items from the upcoming season.
Unlock All Subclass Features
It costs a lot of money to unlock your subclasses, so now is the time to catch up. To access your subclass abilities, Ikora’s Aspects, and its Fragments, farm as much Glimmer as you can. Even for one character, you’ll need tens of thousands of Glimmer to complete the set, never mind three.
If you’re looking for tactics, we have a guide on farming Glimmer, but the best advice we can give is to use Rahool to turn materials into Glimmer. This is a quick way to fill up all of your Glimmer reserves and purchase the necessary upgrades. For all of your characters, not just your main class, unlock your subclasses.
If you haven’t yet completed the Stasis grind, read our Stasis guide to find out how unlocking grenades, Aspects, and other features of this Darkness subclass work.
Spend Your Materials
From the beginning of the following season, almost all available destination content will be gone. With a destination reputation system that doesn’t rely at all on materials, Bungie is turning the majority of destination vendors to function like Fynch in Savathun’s Throne World.
The following currencies won’t be available any longer:
- Dusklight Shards
- Microphasic Datalattice
- Helium Filaments
- Baryon Boughs
- Spinmetal Leaves
- Glacial Starwort
These resources will continue to exist in your inventory but won’t be available during gameplay. It is now time to employ these materials to level your vendors or acquire extra Glimmer since their primary usage will be for Glimmer conversion.
Farm For Deepsight Weapons
With the inclusion of weapon forging in the Witch Queen, the grind for god rolls has been decreased. Get hold of the making instructions for all of the seasonal weapons if you want to increase the size of your armoury. If you can get your hands on enough Deepsight (red border) varieties, you can create every weapon from Season of the Risen, Haunted, Plunder, and Season 19.
In general, to unlock weekly Deepsight weapon drops, you must upgrade the H.E.L.M. vendors. Your primary source of vendor upgrades will be completing seasonal challenges. Play seasonal content once a week after getting the improvements to gradually unlock crafting techniques. Opulent Chests (Haunted weaponry) or this season’s community event can be farmed if you wish to grind more quickly (Plunder weapons).
Claim Vendor Rewards
Every time a new season starts, your standing with all ritual vendors is reset, and all rewards that have not yet been claimed are forfeit. To prevent this problem, it’s crucial to redeem all vendor rewards prior to the start of a new season. You should still claim a vendor’s items even if you don’t care about the loot pool because you can break them down for Legendary Shards and other useful materials.
Complete Your Exotic Collection
A few balance adjustments to subclasses and weapon archetypes are coming with the start of Season 19, the majority of which will affect which exotics are meta. To begin exploring with these sandbox adjustments right now, finish collecting exotics. It would be a good idea to finish up your collections before the patch because we don’t know which weapons will receive changes.
Most exotics are available in the Exotic Kiosk in the Tower. To complete your Exotic collection, farm Legendary Lost Sectors and Master Nightfalls and trade Exotic Ciphers for the Exotic gear you don’t already have. To obtain the remaining Exotic gear in Destiny 2, you’ll need to finish a few Exotic tasks or raids.
Participate In The Community Event
If you haven’t played Destiny 2 recently, you should know that there is a community event going on right now that causes Captain’s Coins to drop from the majority of seasonal activities. These coins can be donated to obtain gift boxes, materials for Masterworks, and cosmetics. It’s a great idea to finish your weapon patterns for the current season as deepsight weapons have a high drop rate from these donation gift boxes. We have some of the top Captain’s Coin farms we’ve found, as well as instructions on how to finish this event quickly.
