Choosing a faction won’t change how you experience the game, not like, say choosing Horde or Alliance in World of Warcraft might. Instead, you’ll have access to a unique cache of guns and armor (because really, isn’t that what this is all about anyway), each with a slightly different color scheme depending on which faction you pick.
So who to choose? What is each faction about and what do they stand for? Let this lore guide to Destiny 2's three core factions help you decide.
Destiny 2’s first DLC expansion, The Curse of Osiris, fast approaches. In it, Guardians will be given the chance to delve the secrets of Mercury while testing their might against the Vex in an attempt to stop the time bending creatures from erasing time as we know it and replacing it with their own darker, timeline.

Together with his brother Tyr, his sons Thorim and Loken, and his adoptive daughter Helya, Odyn’s Pantheon kept vigil over Azeroth, keeping the madness of the Old Gods at bay.
Congratulations! After ten levels, six zones, three artifact weapons, and a lot of ancient mana, you finally meet the requirements to experience the Emerald Nightmare in World of Warcraft: Legion. Only… what is the Emerald Nightmare? Who are these poor, unfortunate souls destined to die at your hands week after week as you farm their corpses for blood and treasure?
