Destiny 1 will no longer receive planned game updates or content. Destiny 1 content through Destiny: Rise of Iron will continue to be available on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles. Additionally, players will continue to have access to the Eververse Trading Co. storefront and the ability to purchase Silver. Please see below for more details on purchasing Silver and Eververse Items in Destiny 1.
Players are able to purchase Silver for use in Destiny 1 through the below methods.

Troubleshooting Issues with Silver
Players that encounter issues when attempting to purchase Silver on their account should try the following troubleshooting steps.
- Wait Up to 30 Seconds: Allow for up to 30 seconds to pass to see if the Silver amount is added to the account.
- Re-launch Destiny: If the Silver is not added to the account after the time has passed, log out of Destiny and then log back into any character. A successful Silver purchase should present players with a notification upon logging back into a character. If the notification does not appear, check the current Silver balance from the Character Inventory screen.
- Sign Out of Console Account: If the Silver balance does not reflect the purchased Silver amount, please close Destiny and completely log out of PSN or Xbox account. It may also be advisable to clear the console cache. After logging back into Destiny, please check for a notification of a successful Silver purchase or check the Silver balance in the Character Inventory screen.
- Check for Successful Transaction: If the Silver balance still does not reflect the purchased Silver amount, please ensure that the transaction shows as successfully completed according to the PSN Store or Xbox Marketplace.
- Contact Platform Support: If the purchase shows as successful, please contact PlayStation Support or Xbox Support to investigate potential issues with the transaction.

- Duplicate Items: Some items, such as Mystery Bags or Ornaments, can be purchased or acquired multiple times. Other items, such as Emotes or Sparrows, can only be purchased or acquired once because they unlock the Eververse License for the item on the player's account.
- Opening Mystery Bags: After purchase, the Treasure of Ages Mystery Bag item can be found in the Consumable section of the Character Inventory and opened at the player's discretion or transferred using the Vault to an alternate Character on the same account.
- Postmaster Overflow: If the Character Inventory is full when opening a Mystery Bag, the overflow items will be sent to the Postmaster and may be cycled out of the Postmaster Inventory as more items are sent to the Postmaster. It is highly recommended to always retrieve items received from a Mystery Bag from the Postmaster as soon as they are opened or to always ensure that each Character has sufficient space in their Inventory.
- Ineligible for Returns: Mystery Bag items are ineligible for Eververse Item Returns. All purchases of Mystery Bag items are final. Additionally any items received from a Mystery Bag item are also ineligible for Eververse Item Returns.
- Already Owned Items: Items for which the players already own the Eververse Licenses may not appear greyed out when previewing the contents of Treasure of the Ages. When highlighted with the cursor, the item should show the "Already Owned" banner on the item tooltip.
- Infusible Gear: The Treasure of Ages can grant players Armor or other gear. All infusible gear gained from a Treasure of Ages will be at Light Level 3, but may be infused up to the maximum Light Level. Armor from the Treasure of Ages will match the Class of the Character that opened the Mystery Bag.
- Ship Icons: The icons for the "Order Theory" and "Needle and Thread" Ships do not match their actual appearances. Players can use the Preview Item option to see the actual appearance of these Ships.
