The Eververse for Destiny 2 will see massive changes this September. Bungie

As Destiny 2 moves ever closer to its massive overhaul this September, Bungie has been steadily releasing updates on what players should expect from the game in a few months’ time. In a recent posting, Bungie detailed changes to its Eververse storefront, which will see plenty of new features as Destiny 2 goes free-to-play.

Let’s check out some of the Destiny 2 Eververse changes detailed in its posting on the Bungie website, and see how they will impact the game moving forward.

Armor

One of the key aspects of why the Eververse got so much flak during its previous iterations is the fact that it was amazing aesthetically, but lacking in terms of usability. This is by design, as locking higher-end perks on a storefront is somewhat questionable design. It’s a much more rewarding experience to be able to get your powerful gear by playing the game, and not talking to a shopkeeper.

Come September, this will all change, as Bungie announced that all Eververse armor will be converted into something called Universal Ornaments. These Universal Ornaments are basically like ‘skins’ for your armor; they override the look of the armor you’re wearing while keeping its stats, meaning you won’t have to sacrifice aesthetics for usability ever again.

For existing players, remember that any Eververse armor you have in your Collections will have its Universal Ornaments automatically unlocked for use on new Legendary armor. All of the perks, mods, and stats of your base armor will be kept.

Bright Dust

Bright Dust is seen as one of the most important currencies in Destiny 2, and as such Bungie is reworking it as well, especially in regards to how you can earn it. Currently, the best way to earn Bright Dust is buy Bright Engrams, shard them, then save the resulting Dust for when the item you want rolls in for the season.

This September, Bright Dust will be reworked from a pay- or play-to-earn currency to a play-to-earn reward. This means that you will now earn Bright Dust as a reward for completing Vanguard, Crucible, and Gambit bounties, plus an additional way to grind them in the future.

Dismantling Eververse items

Lastly, Bungie has announced that dismantling your Eververse items no longer yields Bright Dust. Instead, it will now reward you with Legendary Shards and Glimmer.

For existing players, this means that you should start dismantling any Eververse item you no longer have a use for, in order to build up a sizeable Bright Dust bank come September 17.

Destiny 2: New Light will be released on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam on September 17.
