With Destiny 2’s next big expansion Shadowkeep on the horizon, Bungie has decided to make some much-needed changes to the Eververse store ahead of its release.
The Eververse store is the place all Guardians go to splash some cash and spice up the way they look. The biggest problem with the Eververse gear is finding a sweet looking helmet or chest plate only to see it has worthless perks which aren’t going to help you at all. Now that won’t be a problem. Once the update drops on September 17th all Eververse gear will be converted into “Universal Ornaments”. These ornaments can be equipped on any of the new legendary gear releasing this fall with Shadowkeep allowing you to keep the perks on that gear but change the look to something more your style.
As for any Eververse Armor, you have already got your hands on, Its Universal Ornaments will be automatically unlocked in your collections ready to be used on Shaodwkeep’s new legendary gear.
Bright Dust, one of Destiny 2’s many in-game resources will also be getting a change come September 17th. Now the Bright Dust is best earned by buying a whole load of Bright Engrams and dismantling the loot for Bright Dust so you can actually buy the things you want. Bright Dust will be “changing from a pay- and/or play-to-earn currency to a play-to-earn reward”. Bright Dust will now be rewarded from Vanguard, Crucible and, Gambit bounties.
It will also no longer cost Bright Dust to retrieve items such as Ghost Shells or Sparrows from your collection, instead, using up players Legendary Shards and Glimmer. Because of this change, dismantling Eververse items will no longer give you Bright Dust instead giving you Legendary Shards and Glimmer, so if you want to stock up on Bright Dust before the changes you best get dismantling quick!
Moving the Eververse more into a “play-to-earn” environment, and allowing the sweet looking loot to actually be used without compromising on in-game perks all sounds pretty good to me, but what are your thoughts? Let us know down below or over on Twitter.
