Destiny 2 Legend Dares of Eternity this Week: Rotation & Loot

by | May 30, 2023 | Leveling

Perhaps one of the most bizarre activities in Destiny 2 (it is hosted by a magic horse, after all), Dares of Eternity happens to be one of the most fun too. And did we mention it’s free-to-play?

In this guide, we cover everything you need to know about normal and Legend Dares of Eternity: Weekly rotation, loot pool, and a guide on how to complete it.

What is Dares of Eternity?

Dares of Eternity is a 6-player activity that consists of two rounds and a final boss fight. Introduced with the 30th Anniversary DLC, Dares of Eternity is a free-to-play activity that is not going away any time soon.

Legend Dares of Eternity this week: May 30, 2023

As with most things in Destiny 2, Dares of Eternity is on a weekly rotation. Every week, the types of enemies and final boss you’ll encounter will change, and so will the loot you can get. For the sake of clarity, the week officially resets on Tuesdays at 9 AM PDT, Destiny 2’s official reset time.

How to farm Dares of Eternity

Dares of Eternity is a straightforward 6-man matchmade activity. It is impossible to fail, provided you keep at it for as long as it takes. However, there are a few crucial gameplay features you need to understand to optimize your time.

Dares of Eternity, Round 1

Dares of Eternity Lightning round

A Lighting Round in Dares of Eternity will reward you with significantly more loot. Up to three chests at the end of a run. However, Lighting Rounds have a random chance of occurring, and there is little a player can do to improve the odds.

According to Tom Farnsworth, Bungie’s Senior Design Lead, playing more and playing in Legend difficulty will increase the odds, though:

Activity Streaks

Running consecutive Dares of Eternity runs will trigger an Activity streak. Each consecutive run will increase you streak until it caps at 5. Completing runs with an active streak will reward you with an additional +25 Strange Favor per streak bonus. Activity streaks will be a great help to earn your Rank up rewards as soon as possible.

Dares of Eternity loot pool

While our dedicated Dares of Eternity weapons guide covers both the weekly rotation and the exclusive guns, Dares of Eternity will also reward you with Armor and items that cannot be found anywhere else.
