Destiny 2s next season is just around the corner. The Season of Loot ends on December 6th, so now it’s time to finish off the seasonal grinds and get ready. While you don’t need to stock up on prizes to enjoy a new season, you can do a few things to save valuable time when a new season starts.
Since there won’t be any underclass overhauls next season, now is the time to perfect your builds, stock up on rewards, and get your hands on some god shots. Today we’re going to look at seven tips every player should do to prepare for Season 19.
7/7 Clean Your Case
As is tradition, you should Clear your Vault before each new season. It’s good practice to get rid of any excess weapons, armor, and other items you’ve had in your Vault during the season. Many players place level-up items and various inventory items in their crates near the start of the season. These parts can be safely disassembled.
If your vault is still full of tons of items, here’s our recommendation:
Use D2ArmorPicker to create structures with your armor. When finished, unscrew
non-exotic armor that you don’t use.
For weapons, remove copies, broken rolls, and anything you haven’t used in a year (unless it has sentimental value).
This alone will clear multiple pages in your Vault, giving you enough room to fill them with new loot from next season.
6/7 Unlock All Subclass Features
Unlocking your subclasses is quite expensive, so now is the time to catch up. Collect as many Glimmers as possible to unlock your subclass abilities, Aspects and Trailers from Ikora. All three aside, you’ll need hundreds of thousands of Glimmers to get anything for a character.
If you’re looking for strategy, we have a guide on growing Glimmer, but our biggest piece of advice is, Convert materials into Glimmer via Rahool. This is a quick way to maximize your Glimmer reserves and buy the upgrades you need. Unlock your subclasses for all your characters, not just your main class.

5/7 Spend Your Materials
Starting next season, almost every target material will no longer be obtainable. Using a target reputation system that doesn’t rely on materials at all, Bungie is transforming most target vendors to work like Fynch in Savathun’s Throne World.
The following currencies are no longer available for purchase:
These materials will remain in your inventory, but can no longer be obtained through the game. Their main purpose will be Glimmer transformation, so now is the time to use these materials to level up your vendors or get some spare Glimmers.
4/7 Deep Sight Weapons Farm
With the introduction of weapon crafting in Witch Queen, the grind for god rolls just got a whole lot simpler. If you want to expand your arsenal, get your hands on crafting patterns for all seasonal weapons. Every weapon in Season of the Risen, Haunted, Plunder, and Season 19 can be crafted if you acquire enough Deepsight (red border) variants.
Generally, You’ll need to upgrade vendors in HELM to unlock weekly Deepsight weapon drops. Completing Seasonal Missions will be your main source for vendor upgrades. Once you have the upgrades, play the seasonal content once a week to unlock crafting patterns gradually. If you want a faster grind, collect Rich Chests (Haunted weapons) or this season’s community event (Loot weapons).
3/7 Claim Seller Rewards
Whenever a new season starts, your reputation with all ritual vendors is reset and all previously unclaimed rewards are forfeited. That’s why it’s important Get all seller rewards before a new season starts to avoid this problem. Even if you don’t care about a vendor’s loot pool, you should still claim their items to smash them for Legendary Shards and other useful materials.
2/7 Complete Your Exotic Collection
Season 19 starts off with some balance changes to subclasses and weapon models, many of which will affect which Exotics become meta. Complete your Exotic collection now to start experimenting with these sandbox changes from day one. We’re not sure what weapons will be set with this patch, but it’s a good idea to stock up on your collections until then.
You can get most Exotics from the Exotic Kiosk in the tower. Replace Exotic Ciphers with Exotic gear you don’t have and collect Legendary Lost Sectors and Master Nightfalls to complete the rest of your Exotic collection. You’ll need to complete certain Exotic missions or raids to get the rest of Destiny 2’s Exotic gear.
If you’ve taken a break from Destiny 2 recently, a community event is currently active that drops Captain’s Coins from most seasonal activities. You can donate these coins to buy gift boxes, Masterwork supplies, and cosmetics. This season’s deep vision weapons have a high drop rate from these donation gift boxes, so it’s time to complete your weapon models for the season. We have some of the best Captain’s Coin farms we’ve found, as well as a guide on completing this event fast.
