Destiny 2 The community has a history of finding ways to beat the system with a combination of disruption and collaboration, especially when it comes to community events, and this is no different from the last event the community was able to complete. Previous events such as Niobe Labs, The Corridors of Time, and the Empyrean Foundation highlight this wave of the game’s community coming together for such events, even in quieter times. The same thing happened with the current event related to the Eliksni quarter, which is now in a much better state than since the Eliksni received a place in the Season of the Mutant.
Destiny 2In the current season, Season of Plunder, Eramis has returned to the notorious chessboard of the universe after being frozen for more than a year after the end of the Beyond Light campaign. There were several significant revelations in the season’s narrative, including the bloody story of Mythrax and Netherak, who was indeed the Witness’s apprentice, when the Guardians chased Eramis through the system to recover several artifacts. Eramis was eventually thwarted, but not before protecting Mithrax’s daughter Eido from the Lucents and seemingly opening the door to a potential arc of redemption for the former Dark Kell.
As mentioned above, the last public event to rebuild the Eliksni Quarter was supposed to close the season, but instead it was completed in about 25 hours. Content creator Skarrow9 highlighted a glitch when used by the community to play the event itself, using the Captain’s Atlas and certain treasure maps to spam the creation of treasure coordinates. The glitch, in turn, allowed players to endlessly donate coordinates and speed up the community event as fast as they could.
Bungie tweeted hours after Scarrow posted his video to YouTube to confirm that the event’s main goal had been achieved and the Eliksni Quarter had been restored. The accompanying video shows some of the changes to the area, including a new garden and improvements to several buildings. Bungie did not directly comment on the glitch that the wider community used to end the event quickly, instead simply stating how the community was able to complete the event “in record time”.
The “record time” to complete the main objective of an event is only the most recent event, Destiny 2 the community was able to spam and complete work much faster than expected. It likely won’t be the last given how many times this has happened in the game up to this point and it just becomes a matter of when the next event will happen. Another event could take place right after Season 19 as the season will lead to the launch of Lightfall in early 2023, and a community event could help set the table for Neptune’s discovery.
Destiny 2 currently available on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Stadia, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S.
