‘Destiny’ Weekly Reset For May 24: Blighted Chalice Nightfall, Grenade Spam Challenge

The Blighted Chalice Strike added with the April update returns as the Nightfall to Destiny as part of Weekly Update for May 24. PlayStation and Xbox players can also look forward to a Challenge of Elders that encourages the use of grenades.

The challenge mode twist for Gologorth is that all six players in the fireteam must hold his gaze at least once in the same phase. This means all six players must hold the gaze in succession without receiving the “You’ve failed to capture the gaze” message before passing it around the entire fireteam.

The rewards for Normal mode are a guaranteed 310 armor piece (excludes helmet) and a Calcified Fragment. The Hard mode loot is the same as normal, plus a 320 armor piece (excludes helmet), a 320 Artifact, and an Emblem. The regular Golgoroth loot rewards are also a possibility.

Court of Oryx (Guide)

Tier 3: Kagoor

This is one of the more challenging boss fights in Court of Oryx simply because there’s 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 destroy the Wizard.
