Candescent Armor is one of the two focal points of Destiny 2’s Solstice of Heroes 2022, the other is farms for a God Roll of Something New Hand Cannon or Compass Rose Shotgun. you will be collecting Silver leaves, silver ash and spent chips on upgrading and rerolling event armor for that perfect stat distribution. While you can target which stat gets the most love, there’s no way to account for the other five.
This guide will explain how to get and upgrade Candescent Armor so you can start grinding for the perfect set.
How to get and upgrade fiery armor in Solstice of Heroes 2022
Acquiring your first set of Candescent Armor is easy. Just go to the Tower and talk to Eva Levante, the vendor for the Solstice event. She will give you a complete set of equipment. Her next task is to start the upgrade process by unlocking the Event Card Challenges and then start collecting Kindling and Silver Ash. Here are the steps.
Step 1: Bonfire Party
Head to the EAZ and complete a Bonfire Bash activity, then return to Eva. This will unlock your first solstice event challenge. Claim it to reveal the remaining 23 and receive your first Kindling unit.
Step 2: Apply Kindling
Head to the menu for any Candescent armor piece and hover over the fifth mod slot. This is your Kindling slot. You’ll need six Kindling in total to fully upgrade the armor piece, all coming from Event Card Challenges.
Spend one unit on small firewood, two on large firewood, and three on fully rekindled firewood. Once a particular piece of Candescent Armor is fully revived, it is not necessary to do so again for that character.. The armor piece will have a white glow.
Step 3: Apply Silver Ash to Imbue Embers
Once you apply a Kindling level to your armor, you can start applying Silver Ash to it. You get Silver Ash by burning Silver Leaves at Bonfire Bash, and at first, you’ll only be able to use it once in a stack of 20.
If your armor is fully revived, which requires six power-ups in total, you can apply Silver Ash three times, for a total of 100 units of the material. After spending 100 Silver Ash you will be able to do so, granting you the ability to re-roll the armor’s stats once with a focus on the stat of your choice.
Step 4: Roll back and repeat
With Shining Embers applied to his armor, he can spend a final 60 Silver Ash to apply Sparks, reroll the armor’s stats, and gain a guaranteed +20 to the stat of his choice. Unequip your Ghost mods, as these interfere with the reroll.. Season of the Haunted is all about the resilience stat, so focus on that first.
Once you’ve rolled the armor back up, all the upgrade nodes will be gone and you’ll need to head back to Eva to buy another piece. The process of applying Silver Ash and re-rolling then repeats infinitely until you have a stat distribution you like.
Upgrading and re-running Candescent Armor can be a bit tedious, but it’s the easiest and most consistent way to get the stats you want on your armor right now.
