Destiny 2 Players May Need 33 Years to Get All Ornaments

Destiny 2 Season of the Splicer has introduced the Armor Synthesis system that allows you to change the appearance of your equipment.

Players have been clamoring for a transmog system for years and now that it is finally here, you would think that everything is fine and dandy, right? Well apparently, that is not the case.

Fans are furious upon learning the truth behind how hard it is to unlock all of the ornaments that you can use.

Destiny 2 is a naturally grindy game and you have to spend a lot of time and effort to get the things you want. But the requirements for completing the transmog system are just absurd.

The Truth

According to @theDestinyBlog, it would take you 33.925 years and about $6,000 to $12,000 worth of silver to obtain all usable ornaments to change the appearance of your gear.

For people who did not have the chance to play the new Season of the Splicer yet, let me fill you in on some of the details.

To unlock the ability to transmog your armor, you need to complete a quest first before you can get bounties that will give you Synthweaves as rewards. A Synthweave is a currency that you can use to unlock special armor ornaments.

Now, to get one bounty, you need 150 Synthstrands that can be obtained by killing enemies. While this is simple in theory, it is not true in practice.

Redditor “alonie-homie” said that getting Synthstrands is not based on how many enemies you kill but time. He said that he waited two minutes after each enemy kill and a Synthstrand is guaranteed to drop every single time.

In a related post, Redditor “I3igB” did some math and if you follow the “two-minute rule” explained earlier, it would take you 53 hours and 20 minutes (or roughly six days) to reach the cap for all three characters.

Players do have the option to bypass the grinding, though that would mean they must spend real money to buy Synthweaves from the Eververse store.

Are you furious after finding out the truth about the armor synthesis system?
