Destiny Public Events Guide

Destiny Public Events Guide by Shwinky

So after playing the living hell out of the Beta I’ve figured out the timing for most Public Events. The Public Events may seem to happen very rarely, but if you figure out the timing I promise you’ll be seeing them a ton. I managed to do 7 in just one day simply because I figured out their timing. I’ll list them out the best I can and if anyone can help add to it or fix something (I’m missing Forgotten Shore and Mothyard), I’d greatly appreciate it! I will be writing the times in this format: X:YY, where the XX are just meant to represent any hour and the YY will actually be numbers indicating what minute the event happens (ex. X:30 would mean 1:30, 2:30, 3:30, etc.). So anyway, here’s what I’ve managed to gather:

Steppes
Event: Defeat Extraction Crews
Start Times: X:15-X:25 & X:45-X:55
Notes: This one is the only one that showed any real inconsistency. It’s time frame is much larger and more inconsistent than any other area.

Mothyard
Event: Defend Warsat
Start Times: X:00-X:05 & X:30-X:35 (?)
Notes: I haven’t tested this yet and am assuming that this follows the half hour trend since 2 users have both said that it starts at the top of the hour. I will test this later tonight when I get the chance.

The Divide
Event: Defeat Devil Walker
Start Times: X:00-X:05 & X-30-X:35
Notes: This event was the first one I tested and also the most extensively tested one, so I can guarantee my information’s accuracy for this event. I’d also like to note that this is my personal favorite event and don’t plan on soloing it. It’s damn near impossible without others.

Rocketyard
Event: Kill Hallowed Knight OR Kill Fallen Reaver Captain OR Fallen & Hive War
Start Times: X:00-X:05 & X:30-X:35
Notes: Fallen & Hive War works like it does in Skywatch. Occasionally, instead of a Public Event occurring here a war between the two factions will occur instead. If anyone knows the start times, please let me know.

Forgotten Shores
Event: Kill Fallen Reaver Captain OR Defeat Extraction Crews OR Roving Band of Pikes
Start Times: X:00-X:05 & X:30-X:35
Notes: The Roving Band of Pikes is not a Public Event, but will occur in place of one at the start times just like the Fallen & Hive War at the Skywatch and Rocketyard.

Skywatch
Event: Defend Warsat OR Fallen & Hive war
Start Times: X:00-X:05 & X:30-X:35
Notes: This one is interesting. I’m not sure if it is entirely random or depends on the time, but sometimes rather than the Public Event occurring you will get a message saying something like, “The enemy is moving against each other” and the Fallen and Hive will send out waves of troops that get progressively stronger as time goes on. This will last for about 5 minutes. Also, this along with The Divide are my most tested areas.

So I hope this helps. If you want to try testing these yourself to add to the list, I recommend arriving in the area about 10 minutes before the top of the hour or half hour and waiting for about 20 minutes. It seems like there’s a trend that most events happen around the top of the hour and half hour. Sorry for the general incompleteness of this too. I wanted to get this info out once the maintenance break started, but I didn’t get to test as much as I would have liked. Once the Beta is back I will further test these so I can update and complete this guide.

UPDATE: Thanks to some help I’ve now added start times to the Mothyards and will test them for accuracy when I get the chance tonight. Thanks for the help!
