The Destiny 2 Solstice event is live, bringing new weapons, armor, and a cool emote. However, if you want to upgrade your gear, you need the right materials. Destiny 2 has added a new currency for Solstice, Silver Leaves, that converts to Silver Ash resource for upgrade purposes. So, players must get to work to stock up on these resources and improve their gear as much as possible.
Getting Silver Leaves and Silver Ash in Destiny 2
Like other seasonal events, the Destiny 2 Solstice introduces players to awesome gear with new resources needed to upgrade to improve stats. Thankfully, getting the resources needed for these upgrades isn’t difficult. The first thing you need to do is obtain Candescent armor. Helpfully, you’re handed a full set at the Tower when you visit Eva Levante.
Now, you can equip any piece of this armor. Just be sure you have it equipped, as it’s the only way to earn Silver Leaves and then the Silver Ash in Destiny 2.
With the armor on, it’s time to start grinding. When you complete activities like the Crucible, Lost Sectors, and even public events, you’ll earn Silver Leaves. There’s a cap of 100 Silver Leaves, so be sure to keep an eye on your inventory.
Get Silver Ash from Silver Leaves in Destiny 2
With the Silver Leaves, you can finally get some Silver Ash in Destiny 2. The only way to get this Silver Ash is by doing the Solstice Bonfire Bash. After you complete a round, as long as you have Silver Leaves, you’re rewarded with Silver Ash. They’re automatically converted at a rate of 1:5, one Silver Leaf getting you five Silver Ash. This is determined by how many Igniter balls you toss in the fire.
Destiny 2 is available on PC, PS5, PS4, iOS, and Android.
