PSA: For Those Who Don't Know... (Destiny)

Infuriated with the slow recharge rate of your Warlock melee?
Breaking down in tears over missing yet another Hunter Knife Throw?
Sending death threats to Bungie because of the Titans' limp-wristed slap?
Pissed trying to fingure out how Uno got 750 melees in one day?

This is it!

Just like for Hive Hunting and A Kell's Hand, the Sword of Crota counts as a melee for whatever class you're in. NOT Exotic swords, or Legendaries if you still have those--just the Crota one.

Going through a single round can net you about 50-70 kills depending on how fast you are. Plus, there's a checkpoint right before it, so you can reload to your heart's content! When you get to the last enemy, you'll have to kill yourself with a rocket, though.

The sword knight cannot do it for you.

A few words of advice for my method... "We've woken the hive" (I prefer DinkleBot's version, but NolanDroid's version works also)

I got my Melee, orb generation, and grenades all done doing this story mission. just kill everything except for the knight and then suicide. you can get around 25-30 kills before needing to wipe.

Nico reminded me about the Siege of the Warmind beginning - there are many, many thrall running down the stairs, in fours. Kill them all, leave the yellow night alive, kill yourself, and you're good to go at the same place. Faster than The Dark Beyond, because you don't have to chase anything.

Also, though, you don't need 750 melee kills. I never finished that circle for my Warlock (along with 30 OTHER unfinished circles), and I'm at "100%".

Yeah, you only need to do that if you're trying to make sure you get as many of the Page Completion Emblems as possible. There are a few pages I have almost nothing on and got the 100%. I gotta finish that Defender Crucible Quest, though. I do want the Titan Emblem.

I went there with my hunter and the perk that refreshes your dagger on critical hits. I think I strung 20 knives in a row. It's fun to do even if you'r not chasing that goal.

Also, you can kill that yellow knight if you want to use him for orb generation. Just don't go into the next room.
