The third weekly reset since the launch of Destiny: Rise of Iron is the first to bring Iron Banner back into the mix. PlayStation 4 and Xbox One players will be able to duke it out at the higher Light levels later today. Meanwhile, the remixed Sepiks Perfect Strike is introduced as a Nightfall with a set of challenging modifiers

Iron Banner will kick off for Destiny at approximately 1 p.m. ET / 10 a.m. PT. Expect to see a complete article covering the new bounties and items at that time.

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 320 Light level Artifact and 320 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 335 Light level Artifact and 335 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 335 level rewards.

Court of Oryx (Guide) — Tier 3: Balwur

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.
