Special events

Finally, several special events will occur throughout the year and they will include a brand-new armor set for each class. There are four events in Destiny 2 in any given year: The Dawning for Christmas, Festival of the Lost for Halloween, Guardian Games, and Solstice of Heroes.

Festival of the Lost armor

For example, one of these 2 armor sets will be this year’s Festival of the Lost official sets:

Limited in time by nature, this means you have only a couple of weeks to farm these event-specific armor sets per year. The good news is that farming these is quite easy: The loot pools are very small and the drop rates are decent enough to guarantee a few good rolls if you take the time to participate.

What is your favorite Armor set so far?
