Destiny 2’s new Dark Age-themed Dungeon armor is now previewable

It's not flashy, but it sure as heck does look cool.

Destiny 2‘s Season of the Wish has already begun, but one of its most important pieces of content – the new Dungeon, Warlord’s Ruin – won’t be available until November 30. Some bits and pieces of Warlord’s Ruin have already leaked out, however, such as its all-new armor set.

Dungeons are, ostensibly, mini-Raids that are shorter and mechanically simpler, making them crucial bite-sized endgame content for serious Destiny players. Their loot, in particular, is highly coveted both for its looks and its functionality, and the new Warlord’s Ruin dungeon appears to be Iron Lord-themed, featuring snow survival gear for all three Guardian classes. In fact, if you’re interested, you can check out your class’s featured set by going over to the Appearance Customization interface.

How to preview Destiny 2’s Dark Age dungeon armor

Whereas the majority of new items and cosmetics coming to Destiny 2 pop up at the end of the last page of their given Appearance Customization UI category, this doesn’t seem to be the case with Dark Age armor sets. Instead, you’ll find them on the first or second page of the armor selection interface, allowing you to preview the full Dark Age armor set for your selected Guardian class. You can even slap a cute Shader on top if you are so inclined.

New Dungeon armor is usually kept under wraps until the Dungeon itself comes out, making this a standout opportunity for Destiny 2 players. What’s more important, perhaps, is that Dark Age armor sets also reveal the theme of the Dungeon, which seems to be dealing with Iron Lords themselves to some capacity.

Further, some Destiny 2 players have managed to discover an official image of Warlord’s Ruin that seemingly corroborates the Iron Lord theme. The artwork depicts an ancient Earth castle with an ominous green glow emanating from within, which is very promising indeed.

Warlord’s Ruin is, of course, not going to be available to all Destiny 2 players. Newer Dungeons are, instead, locked behind a separate, standalone purchase that hasn’t been all too popular with the community for obvious reasons. At the very least, those who do have Dungeon keys will be able to matchmake for them using the new Fireteam Finder feature, which has been a very long time coming.
