What is your favorite and least favorite raid? (Destiny)

I love them all, really, even the raid lairs. Raiding is what makes Destiny special, IMHO.

There are some encounters I'm not a big fan of, but there's always at least one that I love in every raid. I hated the sisters in the original King's Fall, but the jumps are easier now, and I only freak out a little when I get taken. I think King's Fall and Leviathan are both too long.

Deep Stone Crypt is the best all around. Best aesthetic, and it has some of the best unexpected sequences of any raid.

Garden is probably my least favorite. It's unpredictable and unforgiving. You can sail through it without a problem one week and struggle the next with the same people. That said, I'll never forget the first time I ran for my life across that poppy field.

Bonus favorite encounters of each raid in order:


Crossing the bridge


Siege Engine

The Gauntlet

Breaking Argos' barrier (runner up: the holomap)

Repel the assault (pitching orbs at ships in space!)

Sparrow Race

Shiro Chi (runner up: the vault)

Fighting Gahlran's deceptions

Evade the Consecrated Mind (first encounter)

The Descent (chaos mode)

Defending the obelisks (runner up: exhibition when it goes well)
