The Altars of Sorrow rotation is pretty forgiving. If you don’t get the weapon drop you want on one day, you will only need to wait a couple more days until it comes back around again. Keep this schedule in mind the next time you’re looking to farm for Apostate, Blasphemer or Heretic. Check out the Shacknews Destiny 2 guide for more activity schedules and farming guides.
