The solar dial is a new six-player matchmatch activity that was added to destiny 2 in Season of Dawn. During the solar dial races, you would try to help Osiris to prevent the cabal to change the past, creating a world in which they will gain the red war.
To start playing in The Sundial, you will need to find the quest Matter of Time. You can start this quest by visiting Ikora in the tower. When you have finished the quest, you will then have full access to the solar dial and can browse it as often as you want.
What is the solar dial?
The sunscreen plays in a very similar way to menagery. The solar dial will load different areas of challenge that will require you to do different things. They all involve fighting the enemies, but each zone has its mechanisms that you will have to master. For example, in the Datamine Challenge area, you must capture The Points, while killing Psion Commanders who appear, surrounded by their protective bubbles. The only way to kill them is with a melee attack, so you have to track them and kill them to continue taking stock.
We will have the complete guides for each different challenge domain once we all come across them. In each area, it is essential to revive the teammates fallen to the fight, to use the banners to ensure that everyone has its super and heavy ammunition and to work together to get as much progress as possible. This will reduce your time spent at the solar dial.
Like the menagerie, the progress you make in each zone will fill a bar on the left side of the screen. When the bar is full, the solar dial will charge the fight against the boss of the week. Every boss fight will have the different mechanisms, and it will take a strong teamwork to make them fall.
Once the boss is vanquished, you will be brought back to the center of the solar dial and will have to choose your reward. Rewards are dictated by the obelisk that you have connected to the solar dial for this race. If you do not know how to find an obelisk, it is a step of the quee question of time, which you will have to make before accessing this activity. You also earn the crops of major fractals by performing the solar dial racing, which you will need to improve your obelisks.
