Plenty to do, but well worth it.

Destiny 2's Solstice of Heroes event is about to kick off, and fans will be clamouring to upgrade the event's armour set to earn the unique glow effects.

As with most years, you'll start with cracked, scratched, and beaten-up armour, and you'll need to complete a series of challenges to upgrade each piece.

The lovely folks at r/RaidSecrets have crunched through the data and found a full list of requirements to earn that shiny new armour. Incredibly, these were uploaded a month ago.

Be warned: These are subject to change, but here's what we know so far!
