Destiny 2: How to Get Ember of the Empyrean in Season of the Haunted

Solar can't be complete without it

by J.T. Isenhour


The biggest change Destiny 2 saw this season was the rework of the Solar class. Much like Stasis and Void, you need fragments and aspects to change how the class works, and one such fragment everyone is waiting for is the Ember of Empyrean. Most players have expected it to work the way Void did in the last season of Destiny 2, with the fragments being unlocked as the season went on. However the fragments this season are different. Let’s go over how you can get Ember of Empyrean and the other solar fragments in Destiny 2.

How to Get The Ember of Empyrean in Destiny 2

While players were expecting to have the rest of the Solar fragments unlock as the season went on, there was something peculiar about them. Compared to the Void fragments that were added last season, there were not shown until they were available. However, the Solar fragments that we are locked are able to be seen in the customization menu.

This caused many players to wonder what was going on and finally, Bungie explained what their plan was. Bungie announced that there was going to be a competition to unlock the missing fragments. In order to unlock the fragments, Guardians will need to complete a total of 20 million Nightmare Containment activities. Once these are completed Ember of Empyrean, Ember of Char, Ember of Ashes, and Ember of Wonder will be made available for purchase in the tower.

Each Guardian present in the instance when the Nightmare Containment is completed will count as one to the total number completed. That means working with a full squad of three will count as three completion toward the 20 million needed. While you work toward unlocking the missing fragments, you can take the time to farm up a god-roll Austringer to kill two birds with one stone.

The real question now is if more Solar fragments and Aspects will be added as the season continues, or if once we unlock the missing fragments that will be all we get. Only time will tell, but in the meantime go run a Nightmare Containment or two. If you need any more help with Destiny 2 make sure to check out our other guides.
