Destiny Daily 11/4/14: Head to Mars for the Nightfall and Weekly Heroic, Daily Bounties

Destiny Daily

It’s a new week in Destiny, and this week they mixed it up on us a little bit. Instead of doing the other Venus strike, Winter’s Run, we’re heading to Mars to tackle Cerberus Vae III for the Weekly Heroic and Nightfall. You can read more about that a few sections below. I’ll probably solo it here in a little bit before spending the rest of the day with Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. The Nightfall should really be the first thing you do every Tuesday, take full advantage of that 25% XP/Rep buff.

Here are the bounties for 11/4:

Vanguard Bounties

BOUNTY DESCRIPTION + REP / + EXP
Target: Phogoth Defeat Phogoth, the Untamed in “The Summoning Pits” Strike on the Moon. +50 / +2,500
It’s All in the Head Kill 100 enemies with precision damage. +50 / +2,500
Cleansing Light Kill 3 or more enemies with a single super use, 20 times. +50 / +2,500
Knuckleduster Melee Kill 30 enemies without dying. +50 / +2,500
Target: Sardok Defeat Sardok in the “Shrine of Oryx” mission on the Moon with the Heroic modifier active. +100 / +5,000
Patrol The Moon Complete 6 Patrol missions on the Moon. +50 / +2,500

 

All of these are super easy, but man I hate that Cleansing Light one.

Crucible Bounties

BOUNTY DESCRIPTION + REP / + EXP
The Wild Hunt Defeat 25 Hunters in the Crucible. +75 / +3,750
Reclamation Complete 5 Salvage Matches. +100 / +5,000
Target Practice Earn 10 Gunslinger medals. +100 / +5,000
Party’s Over Earn 5 Enforcer medals. +100 / +5,000
That’s How I Roll Earn 5 Multikill medals. +100 / +5,000
Revengeance Earn 5 Postmortem medals. +100 / +5,000

 

The Crucible playlist for today is Skirmish.

Daily Heroic Mission: The World’s Grave

Location: Ocean of Storms, Moon

Description:

  • Descend into the Hellmouth to a Hive library which holds ancient secrets they have ripped from the Earth.

Modifiers:

  • HEROIC – Enemies appear in greater numbers and are more aggressive.
  • LIGHTSWITCH – Minions of the Darkness deal much more melee damage.

Rewards:

  • Cryptarch Engram

  • Ascendant Material (lvl 24) l 2 Ascendant Materials (lvl 28)

This one is really easy. Just watch out for Thrall’s and don’t let anything close enough to melee you.

 

Weekly Heroic Strike & Nightfall: Cerberus Vae III

Location: Meridian Bay, Mars

Description:

  • Just beyond their warbase, Valus Ta’aurc, Fleet Commander of the Cabal Siege Dancers, hides in an Imperial Land Tank. Fight through his guard and stop this terror before he destroys all of Freehold.

Weekly Heroic Modifiers:

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

Weekly Heroic Rewards:

  • 3 Strange Coins (lvl 22) l 6 Strange Coins (lvl 26) l 9 Strange Coins (lvl 28)
  • Cryptarch Engram
  • 3 Vanguard Marks (lvl 22) l 6 Vanguard Marks (lvl 26) l 10 Vanguard Marks (lvl 28)
  • 150 Vanguard Rep (lvl 22) l 250 Vanguard Rep (lvl 26) l 400 Vanguard Rep (lvl 28)

Nightfall Modifiers:

  • EPIC – Heavily shielded and highly aggressive enemies appear in great numbers.
  • ANGRY – Minions of the Darkness won’t flinch, even after massive damage.
  • JUGGLER – No ammo drops for your equipped weapon.
  • LIGHTSWITCH – Minions of the Darkness deal much more melee damage.
  • NIGHTFALL – If all players die, your Fireteam is returned to Orbit.

Nightfall Rewards:

  • Unknown Rewards

The Weekly Heroic won’t be that bad, especially if you have an Ice Breaker. The Nightfall on the other hand could be a pain. There’s going to be a lot of shielded enemies, and this week there is no elemental damage modifiers, so things will be a tad more bullet spongey than usual. My advice would be to run as fast as you can through the first fight inside the building, because you don’t have to fight those guys. If you have an Ice Breaker, use it to pick up all the enemies from a distance and then work the tank over with the same strategy (and don’t get hit by the tank’s missile). Finally, when at Valus, hide under the steps and take shots at him and come up when you can.

Here’s a video from YouTube showing how to cheese it.

That’s all for today Guardians. Get out there and complete those bounties, and the Nightfall mission (do it first and get that 25% XP/REP boost).
