Daily Heroic Story: Paradox
Ishtar Sink, Venus Investigate the signal coming from the Vault of Glass.
- Heroic – Enemies appear in greater numbers and are more aggressive.
- Legendary Marks +15
This one has a lot of Taken, and so it can get tricky. I made a mistake in the video, and it’s the reason it ended up taking 15 minutes. I do recommend a shotgun (as I was using) or a fusion rifle in the conflux/templar area. However, once you jump down to the Gorgon’s area to face the blighted mind, switch to a sniper rifle. I didn’t do that, and thus wasn’t able to kill the mind as quickly as I should have because I started getting swarmed by Taken and had to relocate. A sniper rifle, or even Sleeper Simulant (which I should have switched too as well), will make this fight go a lot faster.
There is the alternate/secret thing to this daily where you can pick up three ghosts and then head to the gate at the jumping puzzle to face another taken boss (and a ton of enemies) to get to open a chest that’ll give you praedyth’s ghost (which you use to get rep with Future War Cult). I didn’t do it this week, so it’s not what the video is about.

Today is of course Tuesday, which means the weekly reset has happened. You can read all about this week’s activities, including what modifiers accompany the first Dust Palace Nightfall, by checking out Destiny Weekly.
Hold off on doing the Nightfall though. Bungie is releasing a hot fix today around 12pm CT that will fix/increase Nightfall rewards. So if you rush to do it before the patch drops, you’re probably going to get crap. So just wait a couple of hours. We’ll have a post up as soon as the hot fix goes live.
That’ll do it for today, I’ll see you all again tomorrow morning.
