Daily Destiny 1/8/15: Jump Into The World’s Grave, Daily Bounties,

Destiny Daily

Tis the day before Xursday, and I’m begging Xur and RNGesus to bring a Gjallarhorn and some heavy ammo. That’s not asking for much. I’ve got 147 strange coins. I’d gladly buy three horns and 100 heavy weapon. Seriously, bring it Xur. Running late today, so this is a short one.

Here are the bounties for 1/8:

Let’s Dance Rapidly kill 7 enemies with a melee attack. 75 / 3750
Boneshaker Kill 7 Hive at once with Fist of Havoc. 75 / 3750

Take Cut Them Down and Let’s Dance, fire up Fist of Crota on Earth, jump around a little bit so the enemies get grouped up, and then smash them. Easily get both of those bounties within seconds of each other.

The World’s Grave

Ocean of Storms, Moon

Description:

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

+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. It’s not a problem, just take down enemies quickly and don’t let them close.


Everyone got a gift from Bungie yesterday in the form of a random legendary weapon from the Vanguard armory. I received the Secret Handshake shotgun with Arc damage. I’m okay with that… I didn’t have a 331 shotgun anyway. Of course I never use a shotgun unless I’m in the crucible, but nevertheless I appreciate the free legendary weapon.

I leveled up with the Vanguard yesterday and received another Badger CCL scout rifle. This one I didn’t dismantle though, because it rolled with the Firefly perk. That’s always going to be a keeper. For those that don’t know, Firefly causes enemies to explode with precision kills and can take out enemies grouped together.

I played the Roc and got three legendary engrams. Two of them were armor pieces that turned into Titan gear. The third one I got last night after playing a couple of more, and I decrypted it right before I went to bed. It was a special weapon engram. It turned into Universal Remote, the exotic shotgun that is a primary weapon. I didn’t have one, so my exotic collection is getting near to being completed. That was the second legendary weapon engram this week to turn into an exotic that I didn’t have. That had never happened to me before, and it’s happened twice this week.

Now if I could get one to turn into Hawkmoon or Gjallarhorn, I’d be super ecstatic.

That’s all for today. If you got any loot, let us know. Also let us know what you hope Xur brings tomorrow; although for many I know it’s either Gjallarhorn or Ice Breaker.

See you all tomorrow morning. Hopefully we won’t be disappointed. Well except for those of you who want something that isn’t Gjallarhorn.
