Bonfire Bash in the EAZ

" When the flames have gone out, the ashes they leave behind bring us hope for the future." 


The European Aerial Zone, or EAZ for short, is a three-player matchmade area that tasks players with navigating a floating island off the European Dead Zone to defeat bosses and stoke the central bonfire during the Bonfire Bash activity. The higher the bonfire grows as it's stoked, the more loot players will earn.

Something New Hand Cannon

Compass Rose


Players may launch directly into the EAZ from the Tower Courtyard by interacting with the mission totem next to Eva Levante, or from the launch node in the Tower map view.


Solstice Armor Sets

Complete objectives to upgrade your Solstice armor sets through three tiers, with each tier unlocking new armor effects. Players can view their progress towards each armor set piece by selecting the armor in their character view. Progress towards armor objectives is only made when the armor is equipped.

The objectives on the Solstice armor sets for each class can only be completed during Solstice 2022.

Silver Leaves

As players complete activities with their Solstice armor equipped, they will earn Silver Leaves . Silver Leaves are during the Bonfire Bash activity to increase the amount of Silver Ash given to players at the end of the activity.

Silver Ash

Silver Ash is gained by stoking the bonfire in the Bonfire Bash activity. Players can use Silver Ash to reroll stats on their Candescent Armor and be used to increase stats on the armor.


As players complete their Solstice event challenges, they will earn Kindling. Kindling can be used to upgrade individual armor glows on each piece of armor.
