Destiny 2 The Revelry kicks off next week
The Revelry is a new event in Destiny 2 and it kicks off next week with plenty of things to do and earn.
Bungie has added a new event to the Destiny 2 calendar, The Revelry, and it celebrates all things spring: flowers, bunny ears, pastels, and slaughtering enemies.
Fun times are ahead, as you’ll earn some new armor, an Exotic Fusion Rifle, and more after the weekly reset rolls around on Tuesday, April 16.
As outlined in the Season of the Drifter roadmap, all Destiny 2 players are able to participate. It all kicks off at at The Tower with Eva Levante, who has a new activity for you. Upon completion, she will also have some rewards ready.
Destiny 2 – The Revelry
Start and end times
Starts: Tuesday, April 16Ends: Tuesday, May 7
The Verdant Forest
Yup, you’re returning to the forest. Similar to the Haunted Forest from Festival of the Lost, this tine out, you’ll find the place in full bloom; however, there are some new twists to fight through.
When tackling the Verdant Forest, the goal is to clear as many rooms as possible. The more spaces you clear, the more time you’ll have to defeat five different bosses and claim your reward. You can either team up with others or be matched by the game.
Abilities and Orbs
When you first visit the Tower and have a chat with Eva Levante, she will had over the Reveler’s Tonic. This can be filled with Reveler’s Essence by killing bosses in the Verdant Forest or completing other activities.
Three different tonics will reduce the cooldown of your class abilities, grenades, or melee. The more of Inaugural Revelry or Vernal Growth armor pieces you equip, the more potent the tonic, and the effects will apply to every activity in the game except Private Matches.
And guess what? You’ll be even more “dangerous” in the Crucible, according to Bungie.
You will also be able to increase your output by using Orbs on top of the tonic.
These Orbs have the chance of being generated by precision kills, and the Verdant Forest has the highest drop rate of Orbs.
The Revelry Rewards
A seasonal event is nothing without rewards, and you will earn not only a set of armor, but Enhancement Cores, and a new Fusion Rifle.
Participating in the spring event will earn you the Inaugural Revelry armor set, pieces of which are obtained by defeating bosses in the Verdant Forest. The more bosses you defeat, the greater your chances to receive a drop.
Plus, Eva will have five weekly bounties which will awards pieces of the armor as a powerful drop. As a reminder, each piece of the set you equip will boost the effect of your Reveler’s Tonic so be sure to grab the full set.
You will also earn Reveler’s Essence through activities. This can be exchanged with Eva for packages containing various rewards such as world drops, Enhancement Cores, and ornaments for the Inaugural Revelry helmet.
Each of the ornaments will grow in size depending on how many pieces of Inaugural Revelry or Vernal Growth armor you have equipped.
Those wanting a new weapon to blast enemies in the face with will want to complete Triumphs. Completing these and turning Reveler’s Essence into Eva will earn you Arbalest, the new Exotic Kinetic Fusion Rifle. Bungie calls it the “first weapon of its kind,” and it doles out extra damage against enemy shields.
Bungie will also offer some exclusive items available in direct-purchase bundles, one of which is a Ghost with fuzzy bunny ears. Check out some of the other Eververse items in the screenshots below.
Double Drops mean double the goodies
Finally, while the event is live, Bright Engram drops will be doubled.
If you are at max level, you will receive both a Bright Engram and a Revelry Engram every time you level up. There will also be a “knock-out” list for the Revelry Engram. This will prevent duplicates from popping up until you’ve earned all the new items.
Sounds like fun. Again, the event kicks off next week on April 16 with the reset.
