Trials of Osiris have returned in Destiny 2 during the Season of Plunder. It’s been a long time coming for Trial fans, and it’s a good opportunity to jump into this competitive multiplayer sequence of matches for those who want to work alongside a fireteam and fight against a lethal team of Guardians in PvP matches. This guide will cover the rules of Trials of Osiris, this week’s map, and the rewards you can receive for going Flawless in Destiny 2.
Trials of Osiris map, weekly rewards, rules, and more
The rules of Trials are simple. You want to try and go Flawless, amassing seven wins in a row with no losses, so you can earn some of the best loot in the game. You must be at least Light Level 1520 to participate and purchase the Yearly Expansion, The Witch Queen, to participate.
Weekly Trials of Osiris Map
This week’s map is going to be Endless Vale.
Weekly Trials of Osiris Rewards
As this is the first week of the new rewards system, please be patient as we will be learning the new reward structure along with everyone else.
- Ranking up with Trials from playing will earn you a random drop. In addition, you will get a random reward from the Pinnacle loot table.
- Flawless – Unwavering Duty (Adept)
- 50 Rounds – If you win 50 Rounds, you will get some Trials Pinnacle gear from the new Trials Engrams.
When do the Trials of Osiris start?
The Trials of Osiris matches begin this Friday at 1 PM ET and 10 AM PST. You have until the weekly reset on Tuesday to complete your Trial matches.
What do you need to play Trials?
You will need to own the most recent expansion to play Trials of Osiris, as it is now part of the Premium Destiny 2 experience. This is to help stop hackers from easily setting up new accounts. Additionally, during the Season of Plunder, you must own the Witch Queen expansion to access Trials.
How to compete in Trials
To take part in Trials, you will need to be at least 1520 Power and complete the Entry Pending Quest from Saint 14, and you will need to get a Trails of Osiris Passage. You can purchase these from Saint-14 in the Tower Hangar. He will also sell Trials bounties and passages as special items that will “forgive” losses in certain situations.
Once you have your card and your squad, you can start Trials from the Crucible menu in the Director by clicking on the Trials of Osiris icon. This will only be present in the Director while Trials of Osiris is live. As of Season of the Lost, Trials of Osiris will also have matchmaking, so you can queue up and get matched with other players. This will hopefully significantly increase the population of the mode, making it more fun and accessible for new players.
Trials Passages and Rewards
There are five Trial Passages you can purchase from Saint-14 in the tower. There are two that are always available. One unlocks when you have five wins, one unlocks when you reach seven wins, and another opens when you’ve completed a flawless run in this week’s Trials.
These are all the Trial Passages you can select to purchase from Saint-14.
- Passage of Mercy (Always Available): Forgives one loss
- Passage of Ferocity (Always Available): Third win grants bonus win
- Passage of Wealth (Unlocks after 5 wins): More points at 3, 5, and 7 wins
- Passage of Wisdom (Unlocks after 7 wins): Bonus XP from wins
- Passage of Confidence (Unlocks after completing a Flawless run): Bonus reward from the Flawless Chest
There are some important notes to keep in mind regarding these Passages. A Passage does not keep track of your losses; it is either flawless or not, giving you the chance to continue playing and earning match and round wins for rewards. You can reset your Passage after a loss, and you no longer are forced to after three losses. All Passages track 20 rounds won. A Passage is also account-wide.
Each week, there are two pinnacle challenges for Trials:
- Win seven matches total on a given weekend.
- Win 50 rounds.
