Destiny 2’s Trials of Osiris experienced a major overhaul a few months back that made it far more accessible and rewarding. With this gameplay change also came an adjustment to the Trials ranking and reputation system with Saint-14. Falling more in line with the likes of Gambit, Crucible, and the Vanguard, there are now far more reasons to play consistently besides trying to go Flawless.

Let’s explore how Trials Ranks work, what the current rank milestones are, and how you can speed up leveling up your Trials reputation. 

How Do Points and Ranks Work in Trials of Osiris?

The points and ranks system should feel familiar to most players. You earn Trials Rank points by playing Trials of Osiris, which is basically the XP system for this game mode. As you reach specific milestones, you begin to earn named ranks. There are six major ranks per season, as well as three minor ranks per major rank (aside from the final rank), meaning you’ll have sixteen ranks to earn in total. For every major rank you reach, you’ll earn a Trials Engram that you can turn in or focus with Saint-14. 

To reach max rank, you’ll need to earn 10,000 points in total. Once you hit this rank, you can then return to Saint-14 to reset your progress and start over again with a new round of rewards to earn. This is exactly how the other playlist systems function, and you can keep track of your progress by visiting Saint-14 or hovering over your current rank in the Trials playlist.  

What Are the Ranks for Trials of Osiris?

Let’s take a look at the full Trials of Osiris ranks, how many points it will take to reach each of them, and the rewards you can expect.

Trials of Osiris Ranks

  • Guardian I — 0-49 Points
  • Guardian II — 50 Points
  • Guardian III — 125 Points
  • Brave I — 250 Points
    • 2 Upgrade Modules
  • Brave II — 500 Points
  • Brave III — 950 Points
  • Heroic I — 1,550 Points
    • 3 Enhancement Prisms
  • Heroic II — 1,925 Points
  • Heroic III — 2,525 Points
  • Fabled I — 3,350 Points
    • Seasonal Trials weapon
  • Fabled II — 3,875 Points
  • Fabled III — 4,650 Points
  • Mythic I — 5,700 Points
    • 2 Upgrade Modules
  • Mythic II — 6,450 Points
  • Mythic III — 7,525 Points
  • Legend — 9,000 Points
    • Seasonal Trials weapon
  • Reset — 10,000 Points
    • 1 Ascendant Shard

After the reset, you can run through the ranks a second time and earn similar rewards, though the upgrade materials tend to shift around just a bit. Your progress will remain throughout the season, but will reset once the next season starts up. 

How to Level Up Trials of Osiris Ranks Quickly

Like most things in Destiny 2, there’s no quick and dirty way to grind out ranks and level up immediately in Trials of Osiris. However, that doesn’t mean that you can’t optimize the way you play. Here are a few strategies that you can implement to get the most out of your time competing. 

Complete Bounties

Trials Bounties are a new addition that came about with the game mode overhaul. They are separate from Crucible bounties and can be collected from Saint-14 once Trials becomes active every week. Like every other Bounty vendor, these are split between Weekly Bounties and Daily Bounties, as well as Additional Bounties that cost a bit more to activate.

Weekly Bounties will reward you with XP, Glimmer, and 35 Rank Points. Daily Bounties will reward you with XP and 15 Rank Points. Additional Bounties, unfortunately, only grant you XP. This means that you cannot bank a ton of Additional Bounties to complete and bank additional Ranks. 

That being said, you should collect all of the Bounties available and try to come back and complete the dailies throughout the weekend. These are a mix of individual and Fireteam accomplishments, typically requiring you to get kills with specific weapons or abilities. The only unfortunate thing is that pursuing Bounties can disrupt your overall strategy, so be sure you feel comfortable attempting to complete these.

Equip the Passage of Wealth

Trials Passages are the tickets you get to participate in Trials of Osiris. There are five in total, and only two of them are available at the start — Passage of Mercy and Passage of Ferocity. These are designed to help you out early on with one loss forgiveness or a bonus win. However, there is a Passage that you can switch to after getting five wins that helps you increase your Trials Rank.

Once you’ve won five times, go back to Saint-14 and switch to the Passage of Wealth. This will reset your ticket, but that actually benefits your use of this Passage. That’s because this Passage Increases Trials Rank points when you hit three, five, and seven match wins on a ticket. The only unfortunate thing is that you’ll need to continuously reset your ticket to get the most from this Passage, but it may be worth it if you’re going after Ranks.

Win Games

It shouldn’t be surprising that winning games means that you’ll earn increased reputation. That’s how it works with Crucible and Gambit, and that stays consistent with Trials of Osiris. The actual increase seems to differ depending on performance, but just know that it’s worth trying to get good at this mode.

Watch for Double Trials XP

Destiny 2 cycles through double XP weekends for every playlist game mode throughout the course of a season. There’s, unfortunately, no way to know when this weekend for Trials will occur, but it’s typically announced in the previous “This Week at Bungie (TWAB)” post. It also pops up in an on-screen prompt whenever you first login during a given week. 

When you see double XP for Trials, all you need to do is play it. Leverage the other tips above to try and get the most out of the increased reputation when it drops.

Just like winning is a slightly obvious but lucrative reputation gain, continuing to play is exactly the same. In Trials though, there are additional benefits to maxing out your Passage and continuing to play and win with it. Basically, once you max out your Passage (with twenty round wins), you’ll see increased weapon and reputation drops. In fact, as you bank wins you’ll gradually see some increased Rank benefits. 

Sure, this is pretty basic, but it truly is the best way to increase your Rank. Thankfully, there are actually more benefits to playing compared to other playlists. You’re rewarded for playing, rewarded for winning, and you’re able to consistently bank benefits as you progress.

Join the High Ground
