‘Destiny’ Weekly Reset For November 3, Jump For Cerberus Vae III Nightfall

Destiny Cerberus Vae III Strike (PlayStation, Xbox)

The Destiny Weekly Reset has arrived once again and brings back a remixed version of an older Strike as the new Nightfall. PlayStation and Xbox players will need to tackle Valus Ta’aurc to receive those Nightfall rewards this week and can get a boost by hanging around in the air.

The Cerberus Vae III Nightfall Strike gives players a damage bonus while in the air. How the damage is calculated is a little counter-intuitive, as Destiny doesn’t register the bonus damage if you are in the air when the shot was fired. Instead, it registers the bonus damage if you are in the air when the shot hits the target. In other words, jump in the air just as the rocket fired from your Rocket Launcher is about to hit its target.

As always, this rotation of Destiny activities will last through the following Tuesday at approximately 5 a.m. ET / 2 a.m. PT. A new set of activities will launch then. Weekly Crucible bounties are dependent on completing the Crucible Quest Line given by Lord Shaxx.

Court of Oryx (Guide)

Tier 3: Thalnok, Fanatic of Crota

Destiny Thalnok Grimoire Card (PlayStation, Xbox)

This is one of the more challenging boss fights in Court of Oryx simply because there is a lot going on between dealing with multiple minions, including Ogres, and attempting to gain buffs.

Kagoor is immune to damage until the Servite Ogre is defeated. This Ogre has loads of health, though, and other Ogres to help it, along with Devoured Shadows and Maleficent Eyes. Destroying the Eyes gives a buff called Ogre’s Fury that stacks up to three times and increases the damage done to Ogres.

Players will need to use the rocks and pillars to avoid the Servite Ogre’s attacks and bring it down. Once the Servite is dead, attack Kagoor quickly with heavy weapons and super abilities to bring him down.
