Welcome to the Solstice Seasonal Event. This had been an annual tradition for the Last City ever since the Red War but this year the ritual has changed in a new and exciting way! Celebrate with your fellow Guardians and new allies to reflect on your victories and accomplishments over the last year. To get started, visit Eva Levante in the Tower.

What is Solstice?

Solstice, formerly ‘Solstice of Heroes,’ is Destiny’s Summer Event. Here’s a quick breakdown of what you need to know:

  • Solstice has an Event Card. There are 24 event challenges to complete.
  • Eva Levante will present you with a set of armour. During the event, you can collect Solstice currency to upgrade your armour with higher-stat rolls and a glow effect.
  • Wear at least one piece of Solstice armour to earn Solstice currency.

Activity: EAZ Bonfire Bash


Solstice 2023
  • Bungie hasn't provided any additional details regarding the 2023 Solstice Event!
  • Once they provide details, this page will be updated...stay tuned!


  • 1 − Visit Eva Levante in the Tower to begin the Seasonal Quest. She will provide you with a set of armour that she will want you to equip for the duration of the seasonal event.
    • The Solstice Event Card will become available. Event Challenges rewards Kindling and other various rewards.
  • 2 − Earn Silver Leaves by playing various activities in Destiny 2.  
  • 3 − Participate in the Bonfire Bash Activity Playlist to convert Silver Leaves into Silver Ash.
    • Set in the European Aerial Zone (EAZ),  Guardians must build and stoke the paracausal bonfire while various enemies (Taken, Cabal, Hive and Fallen) attempt to extinguish the fires.
    • Guard the flames against wave after wave of incoming enemies to earn some new and exciting loot!
    • Eliminate all mini-bosses for maximum rewards!
    • This year, the EAZ has evolved and now includes additional floating islands and certain building barriers have been removed
  • 4 − Use Silver Ash and Kindling to re-roll and upgrade your Solstice armour.

Solstice 2023

Solstice: Event Card & Event Challenges

  • Similar to Seasonal Challenges, Event Challenges will be available during the Solstice event that all players can work toward and complete to earn new loot including gear, shaders, emblems and unique event items called “Event Tickets”.
    • Event Tickets provide access to additional rewards 
    • Access this Event card by visiting Eva Levante in the Tower Courtyard or via the Quests tab
  • In addition to the event challenges, players can earn a new seal by completing their event card and contribute progress to a new Multi-event Seal. Players can also gild their seal!
  • Players have until the end of the event to complete all Event Challenges

Upgraded Event Card Rewards

  • Although Eververse is typically the primary source of cosmetic loot, the new Solstice Event will have a curated selection of cosmetic rewards available through the Event Card itself 
  • These rewards will only be available through the Event Card during their initial release but may be featured in the Eververse Store in the future
  • Acquiring these extra cosmetic items will require players to purchase the upgraded Event Card, which costs 1000 Silver.
    • Purchasing the upgraded event card immediately grants players an Exotic Reward Bundle!
    • The Upgraded Event Card contains rewards equivalent to around 3000 Silver, though this may vary somewhat depending on future Event Cards

Unsure if you want to purchase the Upgraded Event Card? You can wait to purchase it later in the event to see how many Event Tickets you’ve accumulated!

Solstice Currency & Loot

Silver Leaves | Earned from completing activities while wearing Candescent (Solstice 2022) Armour. Harder activities grant the most leaves.
  • How to Obtain: Earn Silver Leaves by completing activities throughout the game while you have Candescent (Solstice 2022) armour equipped.
    • Wearing a full set of Candescent armour will reward the most Silver Leaves.
    • Harder activities will reward the most Silver Leaves.
  • Purpose: Collect Silver Leaves. Once you have a good amount, launch into the Bonfire Bash. Stoke the bonfire (the more the better) to convert Silver Leaves into Silver Ash, which is what you need to upgrade Candescent armour.
Silver Ash | Earned from transforming Silver Leaves by stoking the Bonfire in the Bonfire Bash activity. Used to imbue Solstice armour with Embers.
  • How to Obtain: Transform Silver Leaves into Silver Ash by completing the new activity: Bonfire Bash
    • It’s more effective to have a large amount of Silver Leaves!
  • Purpose: Spend Silver Ash to reroll Candescent armour stats, which has a three-level tier:
    • Glowing Embers
    • Shining Embers
    • Stat Sparks
Kindling | Earned from completing and claiming Event Card Challenges.
  • How to Obtain: Earn Kindling by completing Solstice Event Challenges. 
  • Purpose: Spend Kindling to upgrade your armour stat roll potential (high stat), each piece of armour can be upgraded three times (three tiers). 
    • You only need to do this once per armour slot. Every time you upgrade a piece of Solstice armour, it is permanent and shared across all pieces for that slot. So, if you upgrade a helmet all the way to Tier 3, every Solstice helmet currently in your inventory and any future helmets you earn for that class can now access Tier 3 stat rerolls. 
    • Glows can be acquired for your Candescent armour by fully rekindling an armour piece (aka by reaching Tier 3).
