High Celebrant Super Good Advice (Destiny)

I'm not sure of the details, but apparently there's a new Wrathborn hunt-type thing involving the High Celebrant. According to Reddit, it drops a pinnacle corresponding to what you input into the lure - the Super Good Advice is: if you have a slot lagging way behind (or like me, one single slot needed to hit 1260), you can keep doing normal Wrathborn hunts to reset the lure and be able to input the slot that you need.

That is all.

Hunts have levels?

Uhm I think I’m behind in everything then. While I’ve been okay with the bounties I haven’t enjoyed the hunts and haven’t tried to do them a lot, mostly enough to get rank currency to reach all the upgrades

I'm not totally sure what your question is, but here's some stuff about the Wrathborn Hunts:

There are 4 different Wrathborn bosses (2 on Tangled Shore, 2 on Dreaming City).

Which one you are hunting corresponds to the same slot in your lure each time. Each hunt drops a legendary (or some other materials) corresponding to the lure mods you input into it. However, you cannot choose which legendary it is. Instead, each lure charge randomly assigns a legendary to each slot (for example, your 4 options might be Linear Fusion - Arms - Class Item - More Tokens). So, if you want a Linear Fusion, you are forced to fight the first boss. If you want a Grenade Launcher, you are forced to burn a charge and hope the Grenade Launcher option will randomly appear in the next charge.

I need a 1260 drop in the arms slot on my Hunter, so I need to do Wrathborn Hunts until that's an option, and then I need to slot that into my lure, and do the High Celebrant mission, which should drop an arms Pinnacle.

In addition to all this, there are also hidden "Tiers" to the Hunts. When you pick which boss/item you want, you can also slot additional mods that can specify Masterworks, exclude weapon perks, or (sort of) increase armor stats. The more additional mods you slot, the higher the "Tier" of the Hunt. This doesn't seem to matter except that some Seasonal Triumphs refer to it. Therefore, if you slot a Class Item, this will automatically make that particular hunt a lower tier because you can't slot any additional mods (it has no stats).

It's all a bit convoluted for not much payoff, but some of the weapons are pretty cool.

Another Thing

There was some discussion the other night about Drang's status given how good Sturm is right now. Is it sunset or not, and if not how do you get it? The baroque version you could get from Menagerie was definitely sunset.

However, for some reason on my Titan I was able to grab a version of Drang directly from Banshee that has a max light level of 1410 (there is also a non-sunset Mida mini-tool). I cannot do this on my other characters. The only reason I can think that this might be the case is that I did the world missions to get those two weapons on my Titan right before Beyond Light to ensure they properly showed up in Collections. Running those missions on my other characters might predate the existence of Collections.

Long story short, check Banshee on all your characters to see if you can get a non-sunset Drang if you are enjoying Sturm as much as I am.

MIDA Mini-tool too!
