Witch Queen and Season of the Risen Known Issues and Vital Information

Last Updated: May 10, 2022



  • Forsaken Ciphers don’t appear in a player’s loot stream if players already own Forsaken. The Ciphers can be picked up from the Forsaken section of the Monument to Lost Lights Exotic Archive in the Tower. The Ciphers can also be exchanged for Ascendant Shards at the Monument to Lost Lights if players already own all Forsaken weapons. Sets of characters can only acquire 3 Forsaken Ciphers regardless of how many platforms they own the Forsaken Pack on.
  • Enabling Cross Play is required for players looking to enter Trials of Osiris. Players who have Cross Play disabled cannot enter Trials of Osiris.
  • Season Passes  will be applied to the first account that signs in. If you plan to Cross Save but will use another character set, it's recommended to set up Cross Save before logging in. For more information, click here.
  • Stasis subclasses  are only available with a Destiny 2: Beyond Light game license. Players who do not own Destiny 2: Beyond Light on on the platform they're playing on, even with Cross Save active, will lose access to the Stasis subclasses.
