Destiny Daily 10/23/15: Regicide, Hard Mode Arrives Today, Xur Is In The Tower

Destiny Daily

Daily Heroic Story: Regicide

Dreadnaught, Rings of Saturn Using the power of ascendance, pass through the rupture and put an end to the Taken King.


  • Heroic – Enemies appear in greater numbers and are more aggressive.


  • Legendary Marks +15

This is the final story mission from The Taken King campaign, and as such it isn’t the easiest. You’re going to have to kill three ultras before you even get to Oryx. One, at the portal, will have two wizards with it. Then you’re going to have to face two ultras at the same time (and these can drop an exotic, so use a Three of Coins), and the annoying thing about that is the many goblins running around tethering these guys to make them immune. If you have a Sleeper Simulant, you can take out the first one before he really even moves, which makes the whole thing a lot easier.

Finally there’s Oryx, and he’s not that bad. It’s the adds that you have to watch out for.

King’s Fall hard mode releases at 12pm CT, so not long now. I did normal mode again last night and got nothing but trash (my extra drop at Oryx for having 20 shards was… 2 shards. Why the hell is that even possible?). So form your teams and tackle the hard mode. If you’re doing, and I will be attempting it tonight, best of luck to you and your team.

That’s going to do it for today’s Destiny Daily. Remember, I don’t do this on the weekend, so Destiny Daily will return on Monday.
