‘Destiny’ Weekly Reset For May 23, Double Damage Bonus In Nightfall

The information dump from the Destiny 2 gameplay reveal is still being digested by the community, but yet another weekly reset for Destiny on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One has arrived. Guardians seeking out the best vendor sold weapons and armor have a smaller selection than before, but a few notable pieces to choose from. Meanwhile, the Nightfall Strike this week offers a double dose damage buff for those fortunate enough to wield Primary Weapons with Arc elemental damage.

The format of the Destiny weekly reset article has been shuffled around once again to bring the notable vendor armor and weapon rolls to the top along with the artifacts sold by Tyra Karn.

Notable Vendor Armor

Only Variks offers a pure 100 percent Tier 12 (T12) roll this week in Destiny, and that is for Warlock and Titan class items. The rest top out at 98 percent.

For those that don’t know, Tier 12 is when a Destiny Guardian’s stats can be maxed at 12 bars total. For example, 5 Intellect bars, 5 Discipline bars, and 2 Strength bars and similar permutations or an even 4/4/4 split across all three.

Court of Oryx (Guide) — Tier 3: Balwur

The wizard Balwur may be the easiest Tier 3 boss to appear in the Court of Oryx yet. The hook with her is that the floor of the court is covered in poison except for the area underneath the platform and safe zones created by killing Major Acolytes. Balwur spawns on top of the platform, while Major Acolytes, Knights, and Thrall will spawn and move around the arena. The platform is poison-free but obviously dangerous as Balwur will shoot Destiny players and drop poison clouds.
