Just because your game isn’t free-to-play yet doesn’t mean that you can’t already start tweaking your cash shop. Destiny 2‘s real-money shop, the Eververse, will see some significant changes this fall once the game goes F2P.

Armor sets will no longer carry stats and will simply be in the form of Universal Ornaments, so the team doesn’t have to “twist ourselves up in knots” to ensure that the stats aren’t better than what you can get by playing the game. All Eververse armor that players currently have unlocked will grant the same cosmetic unlocks on new Legendary armor.

Bright Dust will also be more easily obtainable, coming from completing Vanguard, Crucible, and Gambit bounties, with additional ways to grind out Dust after you’ve completed your weeklies. “We want all players to earn Dust for playing, not for spending money and destroying a bunch of items in their inventory.”

As a result of these changes, Eververse items will no longer dismantle into Bright Dust but will instead become Legendary Shards and Glimmer. As a result, Bungie suggests players who are sitting on a bunch of Eververse gear should “dismantle the extra stuff you have in your inventory” and “build up a huge amount of Bright Dust” and “spend it on sweet stuff as it rolls through the Eververse store.”

For more on the changes coming to the Eververse store, hit up the blog post on the Destiny 2 website.
