The European Aerial Zone returns to Destiny 2 with the Solstice of Heroes event

A blog post regarding the upcoming summer event detailed all the exciting stuff that fans will receive this month. This includes the return of the European Aerial Zone, a popular activity of this event. Fans have loved it, and they hope that it receives slight tweaks from last year.

Along with that, the primary highlight of the Solstice of Heroes revolves around the special armor that players receive. With a glowing look to the armor pieces, it’s a sight to behold for fans. By completing various class-specific tasks during the event, players can fully upgrade them to legendary armor pieces, and then fight their battles with a glowing aura.

The activities for the event include Refraction, which will include a challenge that changes every day. This challenge would match a player’s attacks to the daily element in order to charge one of their four unique elemental buffs. On Prism days, players can charge up all four buffs even though they can only activate one at a time.
