‘Destiny’ Weekly Reset For Sept 13, ‘Rise Of Iron’ Launch

The launch of Destiny: Rise of Iron finally arrived for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One Tuesday. The new expansion brings a new set of activities and rewards for Guardians to plow through on their way to achieving the new light level.

The Weekly Reset for September 20 is all new with a slightly re-arranged format to bring the focus on the newer content to the top. Important changes of note include Lord Shaxx now only offering one bounty to complete each week and the Crucible Quartermaster offering none. Meanwhile, the new Iron Temple social area adds Shiro-4 to the list of NPCs offering bounties each week.

Meanwhile, the new Nightfall Strike has a 360 Light level recommendation while the new SIVA Crisis Heroic Strike playlist recommends 350 Light. Normal Strikes can grant rewards up to 340 Light, Heroic Strikes are 365, and Strike unique rewards are up to 385 Light. Challenge of Elders scorecard completion rewards have also been bumped up to 365 Light.

King’s Fall Raid Challenge Mode — Golgoroth

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 330 armor piece (excludes helmet), a 330 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 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 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.
