‘Destiny’ Weekly Reset For November 10, Super Shield Brothers

Another weekly reset arrived in Destiny on Tuesday, November 10, giving a fresh start on grinding out the Nightfall, Raid, Strikes, and other in-game activities. The Shield Brothers make an inauspicious return to the Nightfall with a set of modifiers that’s more challenging than fun for PlayStation and Xbox owners.

The Shield Brothers Nightfall this week comes with the Grounded, Match Game, and Trickle modifiers to hold Guardians down. Players will need to make sure they have Solar and Arc weapons handy with Match Game in play and try to face down the brothers in the final fight without jumping in the air. Since Trickle is also present, players will need to generate Orbs of Light for one another to feed Super abilities. The good news is the Small Arms modifier is active as well, allowing Guardians to tear through most unshielded enemies with ease.

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: Balwur

Destiny Court of Oryx Balwur (PlayStation, Xbox)

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. 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 because Balwur will shoot players and drop poison clouds.

Players will need to kill Major Acolytes to create poison free spaces outside of the safe zone underneath the platform for a period of time. Players can then move out from underneath the platform, into the poison-free areas, and shoot Balwur. Repeat as many times as necessary to bring her down.
