Solstice of Heroes Quest Steps

While the event doesn't start until July 30th, Light.gg has the quests datamined from the recent patch so we can take a look at them.

Step 1: Speak to Eva Levante in the Tower

The Solstice of Heroes is a holiday in which Guardians reflect on past battles and celebrate their many efforts to defend humanity. Eva Levante has returned to help usher in the festivities.

Speak to Eva Levante in the Tower.

To start off we're going to need to talk to Eva Levante in the Tower. She can typically be found on the west side of the map, near Ikora.

Step 2: Classified

Keep it secret. Keep it safe.

We're not quite sure what this will entail just yet, but it's clear from the following step that you'll be doing some exploration of the Aerial Zone and collecting some drained armor that we'll be putting back together.

Step 3: The Solstice Begins

As you finish your exploration of the Aerial Zone, Ghost receives a message from Eva herself. She'd like to speak to you at your earliest convenience. Visit Eva Levante in the Tower.

Looks like you'll likely have found the drained armor by this point, and you'll need to bring it back to Eva Levante.

Step 4: The Solstice Begins

Eva has suggested you take the drained armor she's given you and meditate with it at the Statue of Heroes in the Tower courtyard.

Bring that armor over to the Statue of Heroes and meditate with it!

Step 5: The Solstice Begins

Meditating at the statue has infused your new armor with the Light… but its connection to the Traveler could be made stronger. Return to Eva.

Take the recently meditated upon armor back to Eva! Now begins the time where we're going to start needing to actually do things.

Step 6: Solstice of Heroes 2019
