The second quest of Destiny 2’s Solstice of Heroes 2022 event is called A Guardian in Shining Armor. After trying out some of the new features in this year’s Bonfire Bash, you will receive this quest from Eva, earning the many unique currencies for your Candescent armor. This guide will cover how to complete A Guardian in Shining Armor in Destiny 2’s Solstice of Heroes 2022.

All A Guardian in Shining Armor steps in Destiny 2

You will receive this quest and unlock it after completing the Celebrating Solstice quest. Both of these come from Eva, whom you can find in the Tower Courtyard, hosting the Solstice of Heroes 2022 event.

Step 1

The first step is to receive eight Silver Leaves. You receive four from Eva after you turn in the Celebrating Solstice quest. Now, you need to complete activities while wearing your Candescent armor, which you should already be wearing. These activities include Vanguard Strikes, Crucible or Gambit matches, or any campaign missions you want to work through. We recommend Strikes as this can be the quickest to complete in Destiny 2.

Step 2

The next step is to turn the Silver Leaves you earn into Silver Ash. You can do this by participating in the Bonfire Bash activity, available in your Director while viewing the Tower. You need to receive 40 Silver Ash, which means you need to earn the same amount of Silver Leaves.

Step 3

The next step will have you earn two Kindling, which is one of the primary resources of the Solstice of Heroes event. You can earn Kindling by completing Event Challenges from the Solstice Event Card. You can do these specific challenges outside the Bonfire Bash or during that activity.

Step 4

When you have two Kindling, go to the armor you applied your first Kindling on during the Celebrating Solstice event, and transform it into a Large Kindling. This will give you access to the next tier of embers called Shining Embers.

Step 5

With the large Kindling added to the armor, go to the Shining Embers slot to the right, and further upgrade your Candescent armor. You will be using your Silver Ash to upgrade this slot, and it will cost 40 Silver Ash to give it Shining Embers.

You can now return to Eva in the Tower to complete this quest.
