Destiny Daily 12/22/14: World Resets Tomorrow, Daily Bounties, Last Day of the Iron Banner

Destiny Daily

Tomorrow brings about the weekly world reset that we all look forward to. Another chance for loot from running a different Nightfall, more Strange Coins to earn from doing the Weekly Heroic, more chances to get loot from the raids, and of course more Marks to earn. I have 115 Vanguard Marks at the moment and two commendations. So once I get a few more Marks, I’m going to buy the sniper rifle LDR 5001 from the Vanguard Quartermaster. I already have this gun from an engram, but it was a bad roll of the perks. The one from the Quartermaster has the armor-piercing rounds perk, which for bosses like Phogoth mean I can shoot him right through the wall.

Over the weekend I ranked up my Vanguard rank to 13 and got the Plug One.1 void fusion rifle from the package. I don’t care for the perks on it, but it has a five charges in the magazine, good range, high stability, fast reload, insanely high impact, and to balance all of that out a low charge rate. Between this and Murmur, I’m covered on the fusion rifle side of things.

Here are the bounties for 12/22:

The Crucible playlist for today is Skirmish. Today is the last day for the Iron Banner event..

Crota’s Bane Bounties

Oh my God, just three that I can do today. The grind to rank four with Eris is absolutely absurd. You need 4,000 rep with her, I have 537 going towards rank 4. Why can’t I gain rep with her while wearing her class item doing patrol on Earth and the Moon?

The Archive

Ishtar Sink, Venus



Find the Collective’s lost Archive, sealed for centuries in a vault deep beneath the Ishtar Academy.


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 is one mission that can give you fits, and it’s all because of the lightswitch modifier. This one has numerous stealth sword swinging vandals, and they will hunt you down. If need to constantly be aware of your surroundings. Unless you have a primary weapon or helmet that keeps the radar are up, you need to be aiming and exiting quickly. Sometimes its a one hit kill, sometimes you can survive being hit once. Don’t risk it; play smart and avoid being hit.

Once get the servitors off the two nodes, you’ll have to kill a baron. He loves to hide behind cover the moment you shoot at him. Take out the trash around him and then face him on the ground. Ideally you want to stagger him; if you get close he’ll melee you and that’s a one hit kill.

It’s not a hard mission, but because of the modifier, it can be one of the more annoying ones.

I’m going to assume the Nightfall tomorrow will be the Nexus, but who knows? I hope it is, that one is super easy. Tomorrow I’ll step back into Crota’s End, and I can only hope that I can get some radiant shards and not all radiant energies. I have one raid weapon, and 23 energies. I have three pieces of raid gear equipped, and only six radiant shards. If I can get a shard tomorrow, my gauntlets will be fully upgraded. Then I’ll be 42 radiant shards away from level 32.

That’s all for today Guardians. See you all again tomorrow morning for the weekly world reset.
