Added to the new update is the Void Subclass, allowing players to customize their builds and rework their subclasses. Glaive, a weapon type that has parts melee and ranged, with the ability to generate a shield, will be added as a new archetype.

Destiny 2’s new weapon crafting system offers players the ability to craft their own weapons using the new weapon archetypes. Additionally, The Witch Queen features a legendary difficulty campaign mode, which buffs enemies and restricts respawns for players seeking a bit more challenge. Make custom weapons using unique combinations of mods, shaders, and advanced stat pools by mastering the new crafting system. Leave nothing to chance when facing a god.

What are the Hive Gods in The Witch Queen

Within the Ascendant Realm, each hive god has his own ‘cyst universe,’ also known as a Throne World. Throne Worlds are the domain of those who have absolute power. It may be possible to gain additional closure towards the theme of Light and Darkness upon entering the domain of Savathûn’s light-wielding guardians.

Power Level

All Guardians will therefore be upgraded to 1350 Power when the new expansion launches. No matter your current Power level, you will start at 1350 Power.

Destiny 2 The Witch Queen: Void overhaul

Bungie will also revamp the Void-related content in Destiny 2 in addition to the Witch Queen expansion. In the upcoming release, a new coat of paint will be applied to Void, the first of a series of reworkings of all Light subclasses. Afterward, Solar and Arc abilities will be given some attention.

New abilities will be added, certain abilities will be discarded, and others will be altered. 

In Witch Queen, we won’t get any new subclasses as a result of this revamp. Bungie confirmed that Solar and Arc will undergo overhauls, focusing on burning/healing and chaining damage, respectively.
