Destiny Daily 10/30/14: The Dark Below Gets a Release Date, Daily Bounties

Destiny Daily

Yesterday, I made a mistake when talking about the Daily Heroic Mission that I didn’t catch until late last night when I finally got around to playing it. I called the mission, “The Garden’s Spire,” the first story mission on Mars and that is actually the “Exclusion Zone.” It was still an easy Daily Heroic, it just wasn’t as easy or quick as Exclusion Zone would have been. Apologies for that; I’ll blame this cold I’m battling for it.

Bungie announced yesterday the release date of their first “expansion,” The Dark Below. It’s coming on on December 9th. You can find all about The Dark Below by clicking here.

Tomorrow, Xur returns to the Tower. I’ve gotten 40 Strange Coins, so I’m ready for whatever he’s got. I’m hoping for The Last Word or the Multi-Tool. I don’t care at all about the armor anymore. We shall see tomorrow.

Here are the bounties for 10/30:

Vanguard Bounties

 Relic Harvest – Cosmodrome  Collect 200 Sensor Mites in Cosmodrome.  +50 / +2,500
 Exalted Hive  Kill 10 Hive Majors or Ultras.  +100 / +5,000
 Overcharge  Kill 2 enemies at once with a Fusion Rifle, 20 times.  +100 / +5,000
 Patrol Cosmodrome  Complete 6 Patrol missions in the Cosmodrome.  +50 / +2,500


Yeah, I don’t have a clue why there’s only four. Hell the rest of you may have six like we always get. But I only have four. You can do all four of these on Earth. For Exalted Hive, just run underground at the Earth spawn and kill those three. If you see someone else doing it, either go down and join them or stand to the right of the building up top and you’ll still get credit for the kills. For Overcharge, I really recommend just firing up The Dark Beyond mission on the Moon and doing it at the “We’ve Woken The Hive” bit.

Crucible Bounties

 Shake the Pillars  Defeat 25 Titans in the Crucible.  +75 / +3,750
 Relic Hunter  Participate in 10 Salvage Zone captures.  +50 / +2,500
 Ash and Dust  Defeat 15 Guardians with a Rocket Launcher.  +50 / +2,500
 Headhunter  Defeat 50 Guardians with headshots.  +100 / +5,000
 Dominion  Complete 5 Control Matches.  +100 / +5,000
 That’s How I Roll  Earn 5 Multikill medals.  +100 / +5,000


Oh sure, give me six of these. Well five since the Salvage mode isn’t available. Still don’t understand the thought process behind withholding a game mode until certain times. The Crucible playlist for today is Clash.

Daily Heroic Mission: A Rising Tide

Location: Meridian Bay, Mars


  • Find and destroy the source of the Vex surging to protect the Black Garden.


  • HEROIC – Enemies appear in greater numbers and are more aggressive.
  • JUGGLER – No ammo drops for your equipped weapon.


  • Cryptarch Engram
  • Vanguard Marks +5
  • +4800 XP (lvl 20) l +6000 XP (lvl 24) l +7500 XP (lvl 28)
  • Ascendant Material (lvl 24) l 2 Ascendant Materials (lvl 28)

This is the mission where you head underground to the sub station and fight the Vex. Not a hard mission by any means; bring your best sniper rifle and I’d recommend a maxed out handcannon, and you’ll take out the gates and one shot enemies left and right.

That’s going to conclude today’s post. Remember to do your Weekly Heroic on the highest setting you can if you have not done so already. Get those Strange Coins before Xur arrives tomorrow. I think Bungie should have made unique Halloween exotic weapons available to purchase this weekend only. Not brand new weapons of course, but renamed and reskinned versions of existing weapons with a different perk.
