All good things must come to an end and the same holds true for the Solstice of Heroes. Destiny 2’s annual event is only around for a short time, so if you want to unlock a nice set of armor, you’ll need to put in the time before the Solstice of Heroes end date arrives.
What is the Solstice of Heroes end date?
The Solstice of Heroes end date is August 27, on weekly reset. Considering the event started on July 30, this means players will have four weeks to complete everything they want during the celebratory event.
For most players, the main goal will be completing the Solstice of Heroes armor steps so as to acquire a full set of armor. This reward will extend into Shadowkeep, as any player who manages to get the Legendary version of the Solstice of Heroes armor will receive an Armor 2.0 version when Shadowkeep launches on October 1.
Outside of unlocking the armor, the Solstice of Heroes event also offers the European Aerial Zone. Colloquially called the EAZ, this is an activity where players must defeat minibosses to spawn chests after a boss fight. This is somewhat similar to the Haunted Forest or Verdant Forest, although it takes place on Earth as opposed to Mercury.
The event offerings were covered in detail on Bungie’s website. The post showcases the various armor effects that can be purchased from Tess Everis, the effects of the elemental orbs, as well as the cosmetic items, Sparrows, and Ghosts that are for sale.
Overall, the Solstice of Heroes event is a nice filler between content releases. For those who are worried about Masterworking their armor before the Solstice of Heroes end date, fear not, as you can Masterwork it after the event ends.
