Destiny 2 Weekly Reset October 11 2022 – Sails of the Shipstealer Quest Conclusion, Weekly Activities, Eververse Store Updates, and More

This is your Destiny 2 weekly reset for October 11, 2022. We are at the end of two months, and we finally get to see the conclusion of this 62-part seasonal quest. It hasn’t gone the way we expected and with the final week upon us, it looks more like we are setting up for the next story quest that will start after this year’s Festival of the Lost. Let’s not forget about the community event that’s set to start around that time as well.

But before all that, let’s go through what we can expect in the eighth week of Season 18 after the Destiny 2 Weekly Reset.

Season Story Update

We have confirmed that the Lucent Hive are going after the artifacts. But more than that, Drifter warns us to watch our backs in case something really bad happens. I suppose that comes with the territory at this point.

In his own words:

“You’re going after chunks of a dead disciple of the Witness – and you’ve almost got ’em all. That’s some serious juju.”

We also learned a surprising bit about Spider… before he was called Spider. RIP Rakis.

The most illuminating part of the week has got to be when we returned the seventh artifact to the H.E.L.M. and Eido elaborated more on Nezarec’s role during the Collapse. Apparently, it was Nezarc that led the first assault on Earth which eventually led to the Collapse. The pyramid ended up on the Moon where it laid dormant until Eliksni refugees found it.

It’s all still second-hand information but it’s better than nothing. We’re expecting an explosive ending to the current season quest.

Update:

Destiny 2 Weekly Reset October 11 2022 03

The Sails of the Ship Stealer quest is finally done. And though the fight between Mithrax and Eramis was fun to watch, nothing was resolved. Eramis didn’t have a change of heart. But at the very least Eido and Mistraaks are working together on the artifacts, which is a nice change of pace.

With that being said, I really hope the next quest blows all our expectations out of the water. We’ve gone too long without something big happening. I suppose the Witch Queen spoiled us a bit with what we can expect from Bungie now. Mistraaks and Eido may be able to do something that uses the relics as a core.

And this thing about “The Curse of Nezerac” being able to drain lifeforce has gotten me intrigued. Another gun like the Touch of Malice… I’m not sure we’re ready for that just yet.

I guess we’ll find out more in a few weeks. But stay tuned as we ramp up coverage of the Destiny 2 Festival of the Lost event coming next week.

Destiny Weekly Reset Time

As always, the Destiny 2 weekly reset times are 10 AM PDT for the folks on the West Coast of the US. 6 AM BST for our readers in Britain. And 2 AM JST the following day for everyone in Japan.

Destiny 2 Weekly Activities October 11 – October 17 2022 Overview

This week sees the Deep Stone Crypt as the featured raid. The raid itself is set on Europa and your team will be tasked to take down a mechanized Taniks before it wrecks havoc on Europa. (Do keep your cool during the security check.)

Grasp of Avarice is this week’s featured dungeon. If you have the 30th Anniversary pack, this is your chance to get some dungeon loot as well as the Gjallarhorn exotic catalyst.

And as usual, completing these featured content will reward you with pinnacle gear.
