Crota is pretty fun (Destiny)

Tagging as spoiler, in case people are raiding blind:

There's a new mechanic - you pick up a chalice, and a charge builds. (It builds faster the more you kill.) If someone takes this charge before it hits 100%, it starts building for them, and you go back to normal. If you let it get to 100%, you become Enlightened... but if nobody takes it within 10 seconds, you die. Being enlightened allows you to do a number of things throughout the raid, so the mechanic is juggling the chalice to allow the things that need doing without exceeding the time given.

In the Abyss, you need enlightenment to remove the weight of darkness.

On the Bridge, you need enlightenment to pick up a sword from a swordbearer (and you need the sword, or the chalice, to cross the bridge).

Ir-Yut does not become vulnerable until you kill witches in the side rooms, and you need enlightenment to enter those rooms.

The swords to down Crota can only be picked up when enlightened.

In general, the addition of this mechanic makes most encounters need more cooperation than the D1 version of the raid.
