How to get Silver Leaves and Silver Ash in Destiny 2’s Solstice 2022

Lot 2‘s Solstice came in 2022 with a new face and slightly changed the gameplay course of the event. This year, players will need to use a few different means to ignite their armor. Fully lighting an armor unlocks its glow and allows players to re-roll their stats, though it costs Silver Ash.

Solstice 2022 seems to follow the seasonal formula of getting resources and spending them to craft other resources, which players will then use for specific purposes. This year, players will find Silver Leaves, Silver Ash, and Kindling at the heart of Solstice.

Silver leaves will drop if you complete an activity while wearing Candescent armor, the armor from the Solstice set. In principle, these activities include all activities in Lot 2 and range from playlists to public events.

While the game doesn’t specify how many pieces of Candescent armor players must wear, wearing at least four pieces will still earn you Silver Leaves, meaning you can use your Exotic of your choice and still receive the Silver Leaves for it.

The next part of the loop involves transforming it into Silver Ash to enable Kindling, which is when the actual Solstice activity comes in.

How do you ingest Silver Ash? Lot 2the solstice

Silver Ash is only available by doing the Solstice activity Bonfire Bash.

When you complete a round of Bonfire Bash, Silver Leaves will turn into Silver Ash, allowing you to use another resource. It’s no different from Season of the Haunted, where Farm Containment gives you a Bound Presence, which can then be used to extract more Opulent Umbral Energy from the chest at the end of Sever missions.

When you spend your Silver Ash, you need to upgrade your armor with another resource called Kindling. Kindling drops from event challenges and players should find quite a few tasks to complete during this year’s Solstice.

Players can use Kindling to upgrade their armor, adding that kindling to other pieces in that slot as well. Lighting a suit of armor three times will unlock its glow. This somewhat follows the Solstice formula, but with resources on top of the usual armor challenges required to unlock their glow.

Silver Ash is paramount to re-roll your armor pieces in hopes of higher stats. After fully igniting a suit of armor, Lot 2 players can choose to re-roll it for a minimum of 20 in a single stat, combined with another +10 from the Ghost Armorer mod.

This opens up possibilities for high-stat rolls, provided Guardians have Silver Ash.
