‘Destiny’ Year Two Moments Of Triumphs Announced, How To Get Before ‘Rise Of Iron’

Destiny players have another set of “Moments of Triumph” rewards to work towards ahead of the next big DLC release. Bungie announced the Year Two set of Triumphs on Thursday, giving PlayStation and Xbox owners plenty of time to earn them before Rise of Iron is released.

Bungie is allowing players to track the Year Two Moments of Triumph in-game this time around. Destiny players can visit the Postmaster in the Tower or the Reef social areas to pick up the Record Book that shows their progress towards the completion of each challenge and the rewards. Alternatively, players can also view their progress on their Bungie.net profile page just like for Year One.

Overall, Destiny does a better job of presenting the Moments of Triumph for Year Two and giving rewards. Players can earn rewards for every two challenges that are completed. The Celestis Armor Shader is the tier 2 reward followed by the Shield of the Traveler Emblem at tier 3, the Dawncaller Armor Shader at tier 4, and the Hear the Call Emblem at Tier 5.

Completing all the Moments of Triumph will give players the opportunity to purchase a customizable T-shirt from the Bungie Store for $25 with all profits going towards the Bungie Foundation charity. You can still purchase the shirt without the completing all of the challenges, but it will cost $777,772.77.

Here are the Year Two Moments of Triumph challenge that need to be completed:

  • A Blade Reborn: Complete any of the Exotic sword quests from Shaxx. (Guide)
  • The Sword Logic: Defeat Oryx in the King’s Fall Raid on Hard difficulty. (Guide)
  • The Play’s the Thing: Complete the Taken King main questline, culminating in “Regicide.”
  • This is Amazing: Complete the Crucible questline culminating in “The Mountaintop.”
  • Eris Morn’s Revenge: Collect all 50 Calcified Fragments.
  • Return to the Reef: Complete the April quests “At the Gates” and “Return to the Prison.”
  • Challenge of the Elders: Complete an Elder’s Sigil scorecard in the Prison of Elders.
  • The Third Element: Equip a fully leveled Year Two subclass on any character.

Most of these challenges should be fairly straightforward to complete. However, links to guides for the Exotic Swords and defeating Oryx in the King’s Fall Raid on Hard difficulty have been included. Following them, the most difficult tasks will be collecting the 50 Calcified Fragments. It is highly suggested to visit the Destiny Ghost Hunter website to help figure out which fragments still need to be collected with guides on how to get them.

The Destiny Year Two Moments of Triumph challenges will need to be completed prior to September 20, but the rewards can be collected immediately when each tier is released. This gives players a good two-and-a-half months before the Rise of Iron expansion is released on September 20.

Those who pre-order the expansion will receive a black and gold Iron Gjallarhorn after completing an in-game quest. Those who don’t pre-order can still complete the quest to receive the Exotic Rocket Launcher, which involves forging an all-new weapon.

The theme of Destiny: Rise of Iron is exploring and dealing with the remnants of the Golden Age. The Iron Lords sacrificed themselves to stop the spread of a plague called SIVA. This technological plague has returned

It will also explore the history of the Iron Lords, who they were, and why they have weapons named after them. This includes a journey to Felwinter’s Peak, which holds the Iron Temple, a mausoleum for the Iron Lords, and the new social space for Destiny. The expansion will begin with players ascending the peak to take back the mountain and the temple.

Fallen Splicers have dug deep into old technology and have begun to use the SIVA virus to augment and mutate their bodies. This plague has been unleashed from the Cosmodrome and used to transform the surrounding area into the Plaguelands. This is the new playable zone that players will encounter and includes its own separate spawn point from the rest of the Cosmodrome.

The expansion will feature a new story campaign and quests, a new Strike, and a new Raid. Bungie has only provided teasers so far, but the developer says it will reveal more in the months leading up to the Rise of Iron release. What we’ve seen so far is a new Strike boss, plus a Raid encounter atop the wall, which is jokingly referred to as the “Death Zamboni.”

New Crucible multiplayer maps and modes are also promised, but will be revealed at a later date. The developers did confirm that Trials of Osiris will receive all-new gear, however.
