Tokens are a huge motivator behind Destiny 2’s PvP, but as Beyond Light continues to progress from season to season, new changes are coming for the operation of the game. Bungie is warning players to go ahead and use their tokens now before season 13 arrives, as the new season will make them as good as garbage.
Vendor Tokens are a way for Guardians to cash in on their efforts, handing them over for loot, quest steps, or just fodder for weapon parts. These tokens are also essential for acquiring Legendary gear for the loot itself or for farming Legendary Shards. While tokens will be phasing out here soon, the change is actually fan-requested and signals the return of a more direct rewards system.
Justin Dazet, Rewards Zone Manager Bungie Blog to update players on the direction of the chips and why the change.
Speaking of the changes to the rewards, Dazet confirmed that the affected areas will be Crucible and Gambit, as well as Strikes. While only Crucible and Gambit are PvP-centric (with strikes safely falling into the PvE space), Vendor Tokens act the same for all three player activities. According to Dazet, “We will be adding two new unique weapon rewards to each of the three rituals in the playlist (so six in total for all three activities). These weapons are in addition to those added in Season of the Hunt, and continue to have a small chance of falling at the end of each activity. “
The upcoming season allows rewards to be visible on Ritual Vendors – each season offering its own row of rewards and progress towards completing the playlist. The change also means that rank rewards will not be automatically added. a player’s loot stream. Instead, they can now be picked up directly from the seller. The purpose of this change is to increase visibility into what Guardians are earning and what they are working on.
Dazet says progression evolves to a ritual basis, meaning players can be at Rank 10 for Crucible and Rank 4 for Gambit and that value resets will now be done through the corresponding vendors to ensure the final reward:
- Rank 4: 3x upgrade modules
- Rank 7: 3 improvement hearts
- Rank 10: Seasonal Ritual Shader (increases to 3 Enhancement Cores after resetting your rank)
- Rank 13: 2x Upgrade Prisms
- Rank 16: Seasonal Ritual Emblem (increases to 2x Upgrade Prisms after resetting your rank)
- Reset Reward: Ascendant Shard (becomes Exotic Engram after you reset your rank)
In addition to the usual ritual engram, each rank will also include a main ritual engram. With some adjustments underway, tokens and token gifts will no longer be a necessary aspect of Destiny 2. Bungie urges players to spend them before the start of the new season as they will soon become obsolete and as good as junk.
