Mercifully, Destiny 2’s Destination Materials Are Soon To Be A Thing Of The Past
Players will need to earn their Glimmer in a new way, but the game devs thought of this, don’t worry.
More changes are coming to Destiny 2 come Season 19. This Week at Bungie talks about their Festival of the Lost event, Midseason weapon tuning, and most importantly, the changes being made to Destination Materials.
For long-standing Destiny fans, Destination Materials have played a large and vital role in the game's economy. This is all about to change come Season 19. In a further attempt to make the game as simple and approachable as possible to new players, Bungie is doing away with several materials that will no longer be obtainable. Starting in Season 19, players will no longer be able to obtain Dusklight Shards, Microphasic Datalattice, Helium Filaments, Baryon Boughs, Spinmetal Leaves, and Glacial Starwort.
Not only will removing these help new players understand a simpler currency system, but it should also free up plenty of inventory space for long-time players. Now, to those worried about the Material Exchange, there is no need to worry, Master Rahool is sticking around to provide the services that Spider once did. Rahool will continue to accept any destination materials that a player may have stored up over the years, although they will be exchanged at a lower rate than they had previously, and Rahool will no longer sell Destination Materials to players.
Starting in Season 19, Rahool will now exchange 5,000 Glimmer for a stack of 20 Destination Materials. If players have less than 20 of the material in their inventory, Rahool will exchange 250 Glimmer for each individual material offered up by the player. Now, while this may affect some players in their attempt to collect Glimmer, with the start of Season 19, public events will be gaining a huge Glimmer boost, especially the Heroic versions.
Players who complete Heroic public events can expect to earn between 10K and 12.5K Glimmer. Normal events will grant between 3300 and 4645.
As mentioned earlier, the only use for Destination Materials will be at Rahool’s material exchange. That means that anything that previously cost the player destination materials, such as purchasing Exotic weapons at the Monument to Lost Lights, will see some updates. In the case of these legacy Exotic weapons, the destination materials cost will be replaced with a Legendary Shard cost. Raid Exotics, such as Anarchy and Tarrabah, will see no change to their current costs.
