CYCLES IN STAR WARS DESTINY:
Fantasy Flight Games (FFG) have sorted their releases into so-called "CYCLES" (that is various sets that have been bundled together according to their release date) in order to determine which sets are up for rotation and when (we'll deal with what the rotation in Star Wars Destiny looks like a bit later).
The FIRST cycle of cards that were released is called the "Awakenings Cycle" (from the name of the first expansion in the set: Awakenings). The set can be recognized by all the product sealing being predominantly BLACK. The set consists of:
1. Awakenings Expansion Set
2. Spirit of Rebellion Expansion Set.
3. Empire at War Expansion Set.
4. Kylo Ren Starter Set.
5. Rey Starter Set.
The SECOND cycle of cards that were released is called the "Legacies Cycle" (from the name of the first expansion in the set: Legacies). The set can be recognized by all the product sealing being predominantly WHITE. The set consists of:
1. Legacies Expansion Set
2. Way of the Force Expansion Set.
3. Two-Player Starter Set.
4. Boba Fett Starter Set.
5. Luke Skywalker Starter Set.
6. Rivals Draft Set.
The expansion in THE DASHED BOX in the Legacies Cycle illustration is the newly announced expansion set that will conclude the Legacies Cycle (in the same way that the Awakenings Cycle is considered "concluded"). We are still (at the time of writing: July 2018) in the scheduled release of the Legacies cycle.
The CYCLES form the basic structure of ROTATION in Star Wars Destiny. Rotation is the system which determines which cards (from which sets) can be used in different FORMATS in Destiny.
