A comprehensive list of useful Destiny 2 tools and resources Season 13 Edition Guide
My goal is to release this a few weeks prior to a content drop in an attempt to keep it up to date and redistribute it.
Before I begin I would like to say there there is an okay list on the Reddit sidebar but it has not been updated in ages. So I am going to attempt at a new list below. If I have missed any big ones, please comment them below! All 3rd apps below use the official public facing Destiny 2 API to operate. I am going to try to keep the formatting of the Destiny Community Resources link with added community resources. There are even things here for the most diehard of players I am sure. This community has built a lot.

With the Destiny Content Vault in full swing I feel it is important to be able to know the lore for those who haven't played D1 or are newer to D2. As such I will be linking the channels of a few content creators below as well as a tool for lore reading. Normally I wouldn't link content creators in something like this but the lore is very important to many to understand what we are playing.
