We’ve gathered everything you need to know about the Menagerie below, and we’ll continue to update this page as Bungie repeats Overtime in Mode – stay tuned!
Destiny 2: Season of Opulence – start time, The Menagerie, Pinnacle weapons and more
Season of Wealth begins today in Destiny 2, bringing with it a new in-game event, the raid, and even more Pinnacle weapons.
The latest trailer for Destiny 2 Season 7 presents some new weapons and armor that will be yours when you complete, for example, the new Crown of Sorrow raid and the latest 6-player activity, the Menagerie.
Of course, there’s a ton of new loot up for grabs and a new in-game event, Solstice of Heroes, taking off in a few weeks.
Annual Pass holders will be able to start a raid right away, but players over 700-720 Mp will have no added advantage in trying to make a competitive raid a bit fairer in a new mode called Contest. This mode will be active for the first 24 hours of the raid, before moving back to the normal raid rules where you can use your Power to overcome the raid challenges.
There are also new quests to come, including the exotic Truth and Lumin quests. Every week, Rangers will be able to accept new quests and treasure hunts, with powerful rewards that will eventually bring you to the new 750 Force cap.
The sharp-eyed Guardians may have noticed that Benedict 99-40 is currently overheating and carrying the message, “Treasures from the Emperor.” Maintenance work has already begun and most players will be launching Destiny 2 soon.
With all this in mind, let’s take a closer look at what’s coming.
Destiny 2: Season of Opulence – start time
Destiny 2: Season of Riches starts at 6:00 p.m. BST / 1:00 p.m. ET / 10:00 a.m. PT and the raid begins at 7:00 p.m. ET / 4:00 p.m. PT, meaning UK players they will have to wait until midnight to join the raid. From now on, the competition mode will be open for 24 hours.
There is also a new Power Surge Bounty that will increase you to 690 Power which you must complete before you can access a raid or a Menagerie.
Eventually Hasapiko’s shield will return to the top and you’ll have to repeat this process until her health bar drops very low. However, things will change a bit here.
You will receive the Cup of Wealth after completing the initial questline starting with Benedict 99-40. After completing the quest and repairing the Chalice, it will be available for use to earn rewards in the Menagerie Mode. During the game you will obtain Runes and Imperials that will allow you to imbue the Chalice with special abilities. Runes are used to select rewards, while Imperials allow you to upgrade the Chalice for bigger rewards.
Encounters start at Power 700 and gradually increase to 740. Complete encounters until the gauge in the upper left corner reaches 100%. If the victory condition is not met when the timer runs out, you will continue with your next activity until the timer reaches 100%. Normal mode cannot be crashed.
