------- *A1 -------
! THE ! "Swiss Army Site" for which all others are likely to be judged. Armor, Weapons, Builds... you name it. If you still don't know why D.I.M is the go to, than jump on in and see for your self.
- Destiny Item Manager Beta
For a sneak peek onto the upcoming updates to be pushed to live. Also can be a useful back up if "Live" D.I.M. is having issues.
- @ThisIsDim (Twitter)
For if anything about D.I.M seems suddenly broken, and you want to know if the folks at D.I.M HQ know. (Also pretty good for update checks.)
- D.I.M Wiki
Yes. D.I.M is large enough that it has it's own user manual.
- D.I.M Browser Plugin
Yes. D.I.M. is large enough that it has it's own browser plug in. Using this will require you to log in twice (D.I.M & Plug In).
--- --- --- --- --- --- ---
With "Weekly completions, gear [management] with god rolls, clan reporting and more", it's a solid contender.
Note: I use it sometimes for the UI difference alone.
- @D2Checklist (Twitter)
For if anything about D2Checklist seems suddenly broken, and you want to know if the guy who makes D2Checklist knows. (Also pretty good for update checks.)
- D2Checklist Reddit

In the X years since the initial 2014 launch of Destiny and 2017 launch of Destiny 2, there have been the enterprising few who (with the power of code) have built website (and app) based tools which (at minimum) help offset Destinies... um... "less-then-robust in-game capabilities".
In other words; These sites make managing your play in Destiny manageable. They are the solid baselines. With these sites you have at your fingertips probably everything the API allows. And for everything else that doesn't use the Destiny API, a ways to possibly fill in the gaps in "The Next Big Thing" this game, this company, shall bring.
As of the version two update, I've chosen to add quick lines of text of what some of the more complected sites have to offer. That said, I still hold true exactly what was stated in this original text; "Don't know what it is? Give it a look!" By all odds, it's PROBABLY not going to hurt you.
I've chosen to keep this list website based only, as this makes it the most universal. Some of these sites may also have corresponding apps/programs for some operating system of your choice, which I expect will be mentioned in their about pages or socials where available. But since I've made this list in a web forum, for my fellow DBO'ers (and Mysterious Lurkers), I felt this focus in a web format was the most reasonable thing to do.
I've also chosen to not to list any non-Bungie "find fireteam" sites as;
- We're supposedly a clan. So... kinda want to push into that.
- Your results may very.
- Probably some other third thing.
If you really need to find some alternative folks to play with, well... it's a search away.
Why isn't this about section at the top?
Because you only have to read it once.
Leave it to the forum madman to KEEP hoarding data, m i rite? ;p
You are Welcome. ^_^ Go Kick Ass Guardian!
