Just about every week brings something new to Destiny 2, whether it’s story beats, new activities, or interesting new combinations of elements that let players devastate each other in the Crucible. Iron Banter is our weekly look at what’s going on in the world of Destiny and a rundown of what’s drawing our attention across the solar system.
Last week, when Deep Stone Crypt was the rotator raid, I finally completed my Descendant seal–the series of Triumphs you can earn in the dungeon that denote that you’ve mastered it. Thing is, I wanted to complete that seal a year ago, and the only reason I didn’t was bad luck.
The Descendant seal, like a lot of the older raid seals in Destiny 2, requires you to knock out a whole bunch of tough Triumphs with your team. These include finding all of the raid’s hidden lore and completing special challenges throughout it, which rotated weekly when the raid was released with the Beyond Light expansion. But what turned out to be the toughest part of the seal was completing its Collections Badge, which requires you to earn every piece of gear in Deep Stone Crypt, including all its armor and weapons–and its Exotic rocket launcher, Eyes of Tomorrow.
