Destiny Daily 12/15/14: Daily Bounties, Last Day Before The Weekly World Reset

Destiny Daily
Friday I ran the first two sections of Crota’s End solo, and picked up the raid gauntlets and boots. You need 21 Radiant Shards (which can only be gotten from the Crota’s End raid) to fully upgrade just one of those. I have two Radiant Shards and seven Ascendant Energies. I may be able to get the chest armor, but grinding that out to get 63 total Radiant Shards to be able to hit level 32 is going to take me FOREVER. What I really want is the Black Hammer sniper rifle, because it makes my beloved Ice Breaker practically obsolete.

This weekend, I ranked up with the Vanguard and gave my commendation to my level 28 Titan. I used his marks to purchase The Devil You Don’t handcannon. It’s nice, but I prefer The Devil You Know, simply because 12 rounds is better than five (with a chance for six on reload). I then maxed out my Titan’s ability for the trophy, put all of his stuff in the vault (sending him crashing back down to level 20), and then deleted him. Not really a fan of the Titan. Created me a female Hunter, that I currently have gotten to level seven.

Here are the bounties for 12/15:

Vanguard Bounties

Relic Harvest – Mars
Collect 200 Olympus Tears on Mars.
50 / 2500
One For All

100 / 5,000

100 / 5,000
Earn 9000 Experience without dying.
50 / 2500
Patrol Venus
Complete 6 Patrol missions on Venus.
50 / 2500


A great day for bounties. You can get Relic Harvest and Cabal Command in about four minutes if boot up Exclusion Zone on a heroic setting. Kill all the enemies at the beginning (the second wave has a bunch of major legionnaires), and then let one of the phalanx’s kill you. Stretch this out 10 minutes by popping a Resupply Code as the doors are opening and farm a ton of Glimmer.

75 / 3750
Broken Scholar

100 / 5,000

The Crucible playlist for today is Control.

Crota’s Bane Bounties

Siege of the Warmind Defend Rasputin in the “Siege of the Warmind” mission on Earth with the Heroic modifier active 100 / 5000
Blades of Crota Hunt the Knights who serve as Blades of Crota on Earth and the Moon. (3) 75 / 3750
Husk Reaper Collect Husk Shards by defeating Hive on any destination. (200) 75 / 3750
Sleight of Hand Defeat the Hive with precision damage using your throwing knife. (15) 75 / 3750


Hunter’s only finally got a bounty. After I complete all of these, I should be rank two with Eris. What a grind.

The World’s Grave

Ocean of Storms, Moon



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


HEROIC – Enemies appear in greater numbers and are more aggressive.

LIGHTSWITCH – Minions of the Darkness deal much more melee damage.


Cryptarch Engram

+5 Vanguard Marks

XP + 4800 / 6000 / 7500

+1 Ascendant Material (lvl 26) / +2 Ascendant Materials (lvl 30)

Destination Materials +10 / 12 / 16

This one is a straight forward descent into the Hellmouth. As always, the lightswitch modifier needs you need to keep enemies (especially thrall’s) in front of you at all times. Depending on your level and the difficulty you select, you probably won’t die from one thrall hit, but why risk it? Just don’t let them get close.

It ends up in the small arena where you’ll have to survive the Hive while waiting for your Ghost to do what it’s doing. This means a few waves of thrall’s, cursed thrall’s, acolytes, wizards, and of course knights. This will be my first time doing it on level 30, but it’s never been that difficult of a mission before, so you more than likely won’t have any trouble with it.

Tomorrow the world resets and we can once again earn Marks, get a new Nightfall and Weekly Heroic strike, and can get loot from the raids again. I don’t have a clue as to what the Nightfall will be. My guess is going to be Cerberus Vae, but then I can’t remember if we got the Winter’s Run one or not. Oh well, after soloing The Will of Crota, any of these others that I’ve ran a ton of times will be a cakewalk in comparison.

That’s all for today Guardians. Did you get any good loot over the weekend? If so, let us know in the comments.

  1. I got the Black Hammer from the raid…I gotta ask, why do you think the Black Hammer better than the upgraded Ice Breaker?
