Destiny Daily 11/19/14: Daily Bounties, Iron Banner Day 2

Destiny Daily

I ran the Nightfall yesterday with my brother and a fellow Better Hide or Die clan member. I received 8 Ascendant Shards, my brother got  7 Ascendant Energies, and the clanmate got the Conduit pulse rifle. Not bad. It was an easy Nightfall though. If you ran the Nightfall, what did you get? Let us know in the comments. Now I’ve got to run the Weekly Heroic twice, and the Nightfall again with my Titan. I’m at the point now where I don’t really care what I get; I’ve got most of the stuff that I wanted.

The Iron Banner continues; go see Lord Saladin for the bounties. What do you guys and gals think about the improvements made to the event? It definitely is different than it was before, so feels a little bit more special. My only complaint would probably be getting one shotted with fusion rifles, but that’s nothing new for the Iron Banner… that’s every mode you play.

Here are the bounties for 11/19:

Vanguard Bounties

 Walking Tall  Complete any Strike without dying.   +100 / +5,000
 Body Dropper  Kill 100 enemies without dying.  +50 / +2,500

 Patrol Mars  Complete 6 Patrol missions on Mars.  +50 / +2,500


All of these are easy. For Overcharge, go to the “We’ve woken the hive” part of The Dark Beyond mission on the Moon. Quickly get it done there.

Daily Heroic Mission: The Dark Within

Location: Old Russia, Earth


  • Investigate reports of a hidden power trapped in the Cosmodrome Array stations.


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


  • 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 go kill the Wizard from the Moon. It’s the second story mission you do after the tutorial. It’s as easy as can be, although because of the Lightswitch modifier there are a couple of spots you’ll want to be careful during because there’s a bunch of Thrall’s coming for you.

Have an Ice Breaker, or some good solar rocket launcher, and the wizard should go down in one or two hits. Easy.

That’s going to do it for today Guardians. Get out there and compete in the Iron Banner.
