Destiny Daily 2/9/15: The Hive Are Messing With Rasputin Again, Daily Bounties

Destiny Daily
I did some more raiding Friday night, and my reward for downing Crota again was my third Swordbreaker. Gee thanks RNG. No helmet, no Black Hammer, no Hunger of Crota… heck I can’t even get the fusion rifle. Went through the Vault and made it to Atheon and then quit because it was too late, and got nothing but shards. I did solo the the bridge on hard with my Hunter and finally got Abyss Defiant and solo’d it again on normal with my level 30 Titan and got the boots. Now all I need is the chest plate and shards, and I’ll be able to get my Titan to 32 as well.

This is one of The Dark Below story missions, so if you don’t have the DLC you can’t do the Daily Heroic today. It’s also only available in level 30 form. Grab the bounty from Eris.

I think this one is the hardest mission in the game. Getting to Rasputin is absolutely nothing. But once you stand in front of his controls and Omnigul spawns, things start to get chaotic. There’s a lot going on here and you need to be constantly aware of your surroundings. Thrall’s will rush you and there’s also the exploding thrall’s. Also acolytes, knights, and hallowed knights. But the biggest pain of all is the hallowed wizards who put the green circles on the ground that you definitely don’t want to get caught standing on. And finally, a big orge.

If you can, jump up on top of Rasputin, the big thing hanging above the arena. There’s a ghost up there anyway (there’s also a ghost under the controls as well). It’s hard to shoot things from up there, but it’s doable. It’s the safest approach. I like to get behind the controls though. You’re not safe there, by any means, but it’s the easiest area to defend yourself without having to worry about something spawning on you. Priority number one though is taking down the wizards as fast as possible, including Omnigul at the start (shoot her a few times in the head, and get her out of the way).

The world resets tomorrow, and that means another Nightfall to try and get something out of. Doing it three times last week resulted in 11 Ascendant Shards and 12 Strange Coins… so surely I have to have better luck this week, right? RIGHT? Probably not.

Check back tomorrow for the Nightfall guide.
