Trials Of Osiris will start tomorrow at 10 am PST. as announced on the official blog. Incase you forgot, you can purchase a Trial Passage coin from Brother Vance at The Reef, but you may even have some from doing quests over the past week or so. You can carry as many as you like and participate in the 3 v 3 elimination matches in the Crucible. If you lose three times though, you will require a new coin. The map is yet to be revealed.
