Bungie released Season of Opulence, that is the 7th season in Destiny 2, on June 4, 2019
With this season, Bungie released a TON of new content for the players which includes new pinnacle weapons for Crucible, Vanguard, and Gambit, a new raid, brand new 6-player matchmade activity called ‘The Menagerie’ and a new exotic hand cannon ‘Lumina.’
When Can I Get Lumina in Destiny 2?
Lumina was teased back in May in a gameplay calender along with another returning exotic rocket launcher from Destiny 1 called Truth.
It will be joining the Exotic loot pool in Destiny 2 on July 2, 2019 (PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC).
Lumina Exotic Hand Cannon Questline
We all know that whenever Bungie had released an update in Destiny 2, most of its upcoming content gets data-mined long before it’s officially made available for the players. The same thing happened with this update.
With the help of this Reddit user, we now know the quest steps for the upcoming exotic hand cannon. It seems that there are a total of 6 steps as per the leaked information. Below you can find how you can acquire Lumina in Destiny 2.
Return to EDZ Where You Found Thorn
If you are a Destiny Lore reader, you would probably know how Thorn and Lumina (Rose) are related to one another.
“The Light lives in all places, in all things. You can block it, even try to trap it, but the Light will find its way.” – The Speaker
Your system positioning device is active and paired to a chest that is currently located somewhere in the You’ve discovered a letter in the ruined campsite where you found your mangled Thorn. The sender purports to be the legendary Shin Malphur, a supposed do-gooder with a complex approach to doing good. He claims he’s entrusting you with the original Thorn, a hateful weapon capable of permanently killing Guardians. The gun is hidden away somewhere, and to find it, you’ll have to use an enclosed system positioning device to track it down. Your Ghost observes that the signal changes once an hour, on the hour, so you’ll have to be quick.
Defeat Multiple Enemies Without Reloading
This step is fairly easy. You just need to run-n-gun several enemies without reloading your equipped weapon (can be done with either Primary, Special or Heavy).
“Fight together or die alone.”- Lord Shaxx
Your project is going well. The gun is more than mechanically sound; it has synergized with your Light. But unlike your quest to restore your Thorn, there are no mentors here. This is you, forging a new path, following your intuition in search of a strong symbol of hope. If there’s one thing you’ve learned since the Red Legion invaded, it is that single Guardians fall alone. Fireteams of like-minded individuals persevere.
Complete Activities with Rose Equipped
This is pretty straight-forward. You just need to complete several activities (Crucible, Nightfall, Gambit, etc) with Rose equipped.
You feel ready to complete your project, and you have a suitably poetic scheme to do it: You plan to reclaim lost Light from the Hive. Using the strength of your own abilities, you’ll redirect it into the gun and, with any luck, it will bloom into something greater.
Destroy Hive Crystals in Will of the Thousands and Complete the Strike
If you don’t know, with the update 188.8.131.52, Bungie tweaked Will of the Thousands strike. They added several crystals over the pillars when you’re fighting the worm-god Xol.
You just need to destroy those crystals and complete the strike by defeating Xol.
You are the new owner of Dredgen Yor’s original Thorn. Merely holding the gun makes you nauseous—not out of moral principles, necessarily, but instead, a very physical effect which reminds you of losing your Light during the Red War. You don’t know what to do with this… thing. You have no intention of firing it. If nothing else, you believe you need to neutralize it.
Cleansing the Weapon
For this step, you’ll need to defeat guardians in Crucible with the hand cannon as a team, generate Orbs or Light and defeat invaders in Gambit matches before they kill any of your teammates. This last part of this step will definitely be a hard one.
“Hope is a currency. It buys tomorrow. It gives us what we need to survive today.” – Rezyl Azzir
Your philosophy about this gun has crystallized. If Thorn was a weapon of selfishness, then the gun you make will be one of selflessness. If it’s a coordinated fireteam that saved the City from Ghaul, then the gun you make will support fireteams. The Light is about standing united in service of a hopeful future.
Complete a Nightfall
Just complete a Nightfall with a score of 50,000 or higher.
The searing power of your Light burns away the sickness that consumed Dredgen Yor’s Thorn, revealing the weapon that it used to be: Rose. You contemplate the weapon for a long time before resolving on a course of action. If Thorn symbolized twisted intention and malice unchecked, then you will make a gun that symbolizes something greater: the courage to choose the right path, even when it is unpopular or unsafe. But to do that, you’ll need to begin your second adventure in gunsmithing.
This is all we know about Lumina as of now. There can be more to the questline that’s not been data-mined yet. Though, we will know everything about this quest on July 2, 2019.
