Season of the Splicer — Everything you need to know

Published

on


Guardians will have new adventures and challenges to face in Destiny 2Next content drop. On Destiny 2: Season of the Splicer, players will need Mithrax’s help, as he is their only hope of stopping the Vex. The rampaging robots have returned and even managed to turn off the sun. Wow, I guess they took the sunset to the next level.

I’m digressing. The point is that you have several activities to tackle. These include the six-player Override activity, the Expunge weekly max mission, and the redesigned Vault of Glass. Additionally, there are many new and repeating weapons, as well as Armor Synthesis, the transmogrification or transmogrification system in Destiny 2: Season of the Splicer. Let’s go through all of these in detail.

Destiny 2: Season of the Splicer – All you need to know

Encounter with Mithrax

As mentioned above, the Vex have done the unthinkable in Destiny 2: Season of the Splicer. They created a simulation that completely hid the sun, plunging the Last City into eternal night. The only way to stop these bot bastards is to enlist the help of Mithrax.

Mithrax was a strange fallen Kell that you encountered during a particular mission on Titan. He then makes another appearance when you tried to do the Zero Hour mission for the Outbreak Perfected. Mithrax is referenced below during the Beyond the light Bell. In it, Variks, another fallen ally of humanity, tells the remaining stragglers to find the Kell of Light. This being is none other than Mithrax, who is seen as the last hope of the entire Eliksni race.

In this upcoming season, Mithrax was also revealed to be a Splicer, a Fallen with a rare gift: the ability to augment and enhance living things through the use of cybernetics and bioengineering.

HELM command center, override and deletion

It appears that Mithrax and the House of Light will make the HELM Command Center their base of operations. Chances are high that he and his cohorts (or other important Tower characters) will play the role of Osiris and Crow from the Season of the Chosen. Naturally, the main goal this time is to stop the Vex raid.

There are a couple of new activities here. The first is called Void and is a paired six-player activity. At a glance, it appears that Override is Destiny 2: Season of the SplicerVersion of Menagerie or the sundial. With a full party, you will face numerous Vex as Mithrax guides you along the way.

Another activity is called Expunge and it is a weekly maximum mission. As of now, it is still too early to know what it would be like. However, the closest comparison we have is The Presage. Then again, that’s a longer game that took you through an abandoned spaceship, one that rewarded an exotic and its catalyst. Perhaps it is also somewhat similar to the Exo challenges (these are under a weekly rotation, and the completion gives you a maximum drop).

It is worth mentioning that Override and Expunge follow a particular design theme. Because the Vex is your main enemy, there are some mind-blowing, surreal locations that may remind you of the Tron-Sche out areas in the prophecy dungeon.

The glass dome

Of course, one of the most anticipated activities in Destiny 2: Season of the Splicer It is the Vault of Glass. This was the first foray into Destination 1, setting the stage for what to expect when Bungie crafting content for the final game. The original raid featured multiple encounters, such as a battle with the Templars, a maze-like area where the “gorgons” that see you lead to an erasure and a quick dash to eliminate the oracles. All of this culminated in a fight against Atheon, Time’s Conflux.

On Destiny 2: Season of the Splicer, Atheon makes his return. As for the Vault of Glass itself, we know that Bungie repeated and modified some of the areas and fights, so we could see some surprises. I wish the exotic Vex Mythoclast ends up falling.

Armor synthesis

A transfiguration or transfiguration characteristic is something that Destiny 2 players have been asking, and we’re ready to see this kind of system in the Splicer Season. Unfortunately, because this is Destination, Bungie ended up creating an excruciatingly complicated routine.

In a previous This Week At Bungie post, the team detailed the steps on how a piece of gear can be turned into an ornament, allowing it to be used for transmogrification. Before you can begin this process, you will need to collect material from Braytech for Ada-1. Exo’s Black Armory expert will be able to build The Loom. From this point on, you will have to kill enemies to collect Synthstrand. Then you’ll spend Synthstrand on everyone’s favorite tasks, rewards, so you can get some Synthcord. You will turn that Synthcord into Synthweave which will eventually allow you to choose your transmog piece.

Oh, and that’s just for one item, mind you. Restrictions also apply, such as only being able to get a maximum of 20 Synthcord, per class, in Destiny 2: Season of the Splicer. That number also drops to 10 in later seasons.

But, if you want to speed things up and don’t want to go through all that hassle, you can purchase Synthweave Templates through Eververse. Unsurprisingly, the community criticized all of these decisions. Sadly, as the next season is about to start, I doubt we will see any major changes or revisions in time.

Items, Exotics, the Splicer Gauntlet, and the Content Drop Schedule.

Destiny 2: Season of the Splicer also has other things in store. We will see over 30 new and repeating legendary weapons to add to your collection. Similarly, since Bungie has retired the extinguishing system (at least for items that have not reached the power limit during the Season of the Chosen), you won’t have to worry too much about your favorites becoming outdated in the future.

We will also see new exotics, such as the Star-Eater Scales leggings for hunters. Makes your super more powerful and allows it to charge faster through orbs. Warlocks, meanwhile, can obtain the Assembler’s Boots, which generate projectiles that buff distant allies each time a rift is used. Oh, and the Titans can get the Path of the Fiery Steps. Converts solar kills into increased weapon damage while making Titans harder to block with Stasis (yes, because Titans needed what).

Similarly, there is the Cryosthesia 77k, an exotic weapon that uses Stasis as an item. In addition, there is the Splicer Gauntlet which, according to the description, is something that can be “loaded with Ether and used to hack into the Vex network, access Conflux chests, and unlock Splicer upgrades.”

Finally, there is the content delivery schedule for Destiny 2: Season of the Splicer. You’ll see the activities to look forward to and maybe a few more surprises later on.
