390 King's Fall Challenges (videos) (Destiny)

by CruelLEGACEY ⌂ @, Toronto, Sunday, April 16, 2017, 13:03 (40 days ago)

Had a great run through King's Fall last night with Kermit, Destroyoboy, and Kupcake. We started from Golgoroth and went through to the end.
I recorded videos of the 3 boss fights (Golgoroth, Sisters, Oryx) and I thought these particular videos might be helpful for anyone struggling with the challenge modes. In all 3 fights, I ended up taking the role of "lead callout guy". I was also one of the only people in the fireteam with their voice chat set to record, so there isn't a lot of chatter in the videos, aside from my callouts. Plus I ended up taking some of the more isolated positions in each fight, so these videos give a good view of those positions for those who don't usually see the encounters from that angle.

Making us look like we're crazy...


Anyway, while you were doing that, I was hopping on to Sammy's unused Warlock to have some trolly fun in Crucible. Namely by using my patented "Pop a Super at the beginning of a match" technology to confuse the enemy. Getting a First Blood medal with a Super is one of the greatest feelings in the game (even better when you end up at the top of the leaderboard, despite being the lowest-leveled player in the match)...
And the best part is, it's not (technically) cheating!

Came across this on YT before I saw this post. I burst out laughing. That was hilarious.

Thanks for posting. Next time we play you can talk me through those settings for sharing voice. They're a bit confusing.

I can tell you what I said that made you laugh at the end of the sisters. "Thank you, RNG!"

Huh, glad to see I'm not the only one who has a little trouble jumping up on those boxes. Also, I find it interesting that you take the gaze with your primary instead of your sniper. Last night I tried my hand at being gaze taker #1. It went alright, but it felt like I took too long taking his gaze & I could have been better at counting down on the last 5 seconds.

You did awesome, thanks for joining up with us!

I wouldn't use any primary except scout rifles. My method of counting down is to look at the timer once at 10 seconds and start counting down without looking at it again. My internal clock is more likely to go too fast than too slow, so no real harm done if I'm slightly off.

Anyone possibly have an Oryx Checkpoint (PS4)?

Sorry I wasn't able to get on to run this with you guys Saturday Evening. I really would have wanted to be there to get some tasks completed for the Triumph book.

I did not see enough sign ups or interest in my event so I figured that it wasn't going to happen and wouldn't be easy to assemble a group on the fly - it is pretty tough to judge without info. I was for sure not able to get on an hour early to grab a checkpoint (time zone differences). I changed the event day, to the next day (Sunday Evening), a number of hours before the event was set to begin. It has been a busy all around weekend with family and I did not get home until around 10PM(CT) an hour after the original event time which is too late for many to try and scramble up a raid.

Sunday evening, I was ready to give up again. Destroyo and Kupkake were online, and gracious plus kind enough to help assemble a team and give a go at the challenge modes for me, even though they had just run the raid the night before. I truly appreciate the great folks within the community willing to help out with an old task (especially like King's Fall). I have forgotten just about everything specific about King's Fall besides the final encounter. I especially have forgotten how punishing the challenge modes were, which is probably part of the reason why I never completed them during the initial release window. Fabian from the prior nights raid joined up too, GuardianAngel showed up with a handy Warpriest Checkpoint, and Dogcow joined up last minute to help! (very much appreciated on all fronts. I don't always have the right words to say)

We knocked out The Warpriest challenge after a little bit of work at it and moved on to Golgoroth en route to Oryx but eventually got stuck. It was late, we ran out of time at Golgy.

Not sure if it will be possible but if we can find an Oryx Checkpoint, I wouldn't mind trying to complete Oryx or his challenge Monday night before reset. If not, that is ok too.
Not sure if both are feasible at once. But just getting a 390 clear would be another step closer to completion.


A significant part of "My Legend" in Destiny is not my own. It is thanks in large part to a number of awesome folks here from DBO that have played helper throughout the years. Unfortunately there is not really a way to quantify that or show it, but I promise that it is not forgotten.

A Special thanks to Speedracer513 and CruelLegacey/Kupkake for giving up their seats during the prior 2 weeks raids (Crota and Vault of Glass) and letting me take their place in order for me to fill nodes for completing the Triumph book!
