‘Destiny’ Weekly Reset For Dec. 6, An Iron Banner Day

The sun has not risen on The Dawning event in Destiny quite yet. Bungie has a round of Iron Banner in mind this week for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One owners before the month-long event featuring Sparrow Racing arrives.

Iron Banner will go live later today at 1 p.m. ET / 10 a.m. PT. Bungie has decided to give Rift another shot as the gametype. Expect to see another article with the full details later today.

Meanwhile, The Will of Crota is served up as this week’s Nightfall Strike with a favorable pair of modifiers coupled with two more to make things tougher.

Ocean of Storms, Moon Fallen Devil Splicers are intent on using SIVA technology to experiment on the Hive. Stop them from stealing an abomination from the Summoning Pits.


  • Epic — Heavily shielded and highly aggressive enemies appear in great numbers.
  • Arc Burn — Arc damage from any source is greatly increased.
  • Small Arms — Primary Weapon damage is favored.
  • Grounded — Players take more damage while airborne.
  • Ironclad — More enemies have shields.

Weekly SIVA Crisis Heroic Strikes


  • Heroic — Enemies appear in greater numbers and are more aggressive.
  • Void Burn – Void damage from any source is greatly increased.
  • Brawler — Guardian melee damage is greatly increased.
  • Ironclad — More enemies have shields.

Wrath of the Machine Challenge Mode — Aksis

The second of the two Wrath of the Machine Raid challenges. For this challenge, at least one player on the Fireteam will need to supercharge and stun Aksis on each teleport. This is on every teleport, not just once per phase. Designating three players to handle this duty is the simplest solution, and they need to stand on plates located on the right, left, and back middle of the arena to do so. This leaves all three teleport locations covered when Aksis teleports to them.

Rewards include the SIVA Ornament and Exotic Engram on Hard mode difficulty. Meanwhile, 385 Light gear for Normal mode or 400 Light gear for Hard mode is also available, along with a Vosik’s Venom Emblem.

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

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.
