Hot on the heels of the exciting Cube inspired Corridors of Time quest, Bungie brought another huge community event to Destiny 2 this week. The latest update to the game added the Empyrean Foundation, a mysterious event that has confused fans since the first revelation of Season of Dawn.
The idea is simple: players can now donate their polarized fractal to the obelisk of the tower. As soon as players deposit enough fractines together, they unlock mysterious rewards. Currently, Bungie has listed seven donation layers, which require billions of fractalines.
The endgame here is still unknown, but many fans speculate that this could lead to the return of Trials of Osiris. Here is everything needed to get started.
Complete the Bright Future quest
Go to the tower and go to Saint-14 when you load in the game. He will have a new search for you, called Bright Future. This is short and clear, so it won't take long to switch it off.
First you have to enter the Sundial activity and kill Inotam, the newest boss of the activity. As with all sundial bosses, there is no failure status here, so jump in and fight until it's over.
You must then collect 30 orbs. Equip a masterpiece weapon if you have one and get a lot of murders to quickly generate orbs. You can also switch this off quickly by jumping into an activity with a fire team and linking super people.
Once you have completed this, you will get a core. Take this back to the obelisk in the tower and you will get official access to the Empyrean Foundation.
Once you have unlocked the Empyrean Foundation, you must submit polarized fractalines, which can be done in packs of 100.
Fractalines are not hard to find. If you are looking for a consistent source, pick up the Saint-14 premiums, which reward packages from them. The same applies to obelisk premiums, which also give you a good range of fractins. You can also get these to complete different premiums from season 9, so focus on those for a few simple winnings.
You also want to use many fractaline skimmers, which you can buy at the obelisk of the Tower. When you use one, you get the chance to receive polarized fractalines as a normal activity reward. You can only use six per week, but this gives you an extra 600.
Players who donate 5,000 fractalines during the event will earn a triumph and emblem, so make sure you reach that threshold at the end of the season. Contributing also generates a 25% progress towards any timely premiums in your inventory, so there are many reasons to be a team player here.
Upgrade your resonance position
During the event, the Tower Obelisk generates a batch of polarized fractalines for you every week based on your resonance rank among all planetary obelisks. You will find that you can give fractures to obelisks, who will update everyone's rank.
Although your instinct may be to donate everything you have to the Empyrean Foundation, you want to make sure that you increase your rank when you can. If you do this, you will get more guaranteed fractalines with each reset, making it more lucrative in the long run.
If you don't feel like spending fractalines to raise your resonance, you can buy a lightly fused fractaline from the Tower obelisk, which increases the rank of any other obelisk. This will cost you 50,000 glimmer and 10 legendary shards, so make sure you have charged the glimmer if you want to take advantage of this.
If you have missed the Corridors of Time, this is an excellent opportunity to enter a community event that is much easier to understand and participate. You don't need the season pass of the game to help, so any player can help here.
