Haven't seen any chatter about this, and I'm curious to see what changes Bungie did/didn't make for this classic activity.

My availability is anytime on Saturday ET/PT.

I expect the cool kids already got a group, but I'm game.

As far as I know, there are no DBO groups assembled.

I unfortunately can't commit to any serious attempts, summer weekends are at a premium these days. If you see me on and need a sub for an hour I could probably help though.

I'm interested, but...

I doubt I'll be leveled appropriately. Wouldn't mind dabbling, though. Put me in squid's camp.

Pretty sure you're close to 1570, the cap for contest mode today is 1560, and the season cap is 1580, so it's highly unlikely you are underleveled.

Of course, what weaponry you have access to is always a question.

You can also just click on the tab, and it'll slide closed; it lets you see stuff like the loadout of the player. It's useful, just not all the time.

Yeh. Internet says that all swords (Lament, ideally) and three Well of Radiance Locks are the smoothest no-frills way to beat him.

Second smoothest is Izanagi + Auto-Loading Hotheads (Adept) with a Gjally.

And third is Linears + Divinity.

Or you could just cheat.

We tried linears/rockets at first, but we were only able to get through around a quarter of his health (at most) before running out of ammo. We tried switching to stacking Outbreak, which solved the ammo problem, but it didn't have quite enough firepower to get where we needed each damage phase. The lowest we were able to get his health after four DPS phases was 15-20%.

With Retrospect, if it wasn't for the Arc "0 Res" Glitch for Titans & Warlocks, I think we could have pulled off that last run. With 2 Arc Titans rolling Cuirass of the Falling Star, plus having our Hunter get off Gathering Storm and Switch to Void Bow or Solar Celestial Nighthawk, we might have been able to pull it off.

That's dumb (the cheating). We did it with Linears/Div because it's the most straightforward. (We didn't try rockets because of ammo.) Hypnotic WANTED to do swords, but the rest of us weren't that interested.

Have whoever is plate be responsible for their Brand knight, damage is always done from center. Always wait till last second to switch brand.

Same. Not quite center, though - a little to the right (so there's nothing in front of you, far more chance you'll be able to shoot him). You can easily get to both Right and Center totems from this spot (at the end of the damage phase), and because it's streamlined, you can relatively easily 3-phase him, meaning you won't need the third totem.

Not sure it was a cruise, but we got through it last night. Almost all of the changes are fun and good. I will miss the challenge of making it all the way around the jumping circuit on Daughters/Oryx though.

I was lucky enough to get Touch of Malice to drop, my first 1st completion exotic drop ever in Destiny!
