King’s Fall Raid Challenge Mode — Warpriest (Guide)

Destiny Warpriest (PlayStation, Xbox)

The first challenge for the King’s Fall Raid Challenge should be a snap for those experienced with the encounter already. The fireteam must ensure that no one player holds the aura during the damage phase more than once.

Possible rewards for the challenge on Normal include a 310 Light level Artifact and 310 Light level weapon, and one of the missing Calcified Fragments along with the normal chance at an Exotic. The rewards on Hard mode are a 320 Light level Artifact and 320 Light level weapon, plus the “Worm God’s Servant” emblem and the Calcified Fragment. You can get the Normal mode rewards in Hard mode in addition to the 320 level rewards.

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 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 players and drop poison clouds.
