Destiny 2’s raid race was delightfully brutal

The best time to play a Destiny raid is as soon as it launches. Before the puzzles are solved, the bosses cheesed, the builds optimised, and the surprises spoiled, get in and discover it for yourself. Raids are extra brutal at launch because the first 24 hours are under a special ‘Contest Mode’ making enemies so much tougher while players race for the world’s first completion. So when Destiny 2: Beyond Light opened the Deep Stone Crypt last Saturday, I dove straight in with my fireteam for puzzling and a good pummelling. It was: great. (more…)

Destiny 2: Beyond Light’s first raid, Deep Stone Crypt, has been opened

Along with a half-dozen planets and countless weapons and armour, Destiny 2: Beyond Light made us say goodbye to the game’s existing raids – so it’s about time it added a new one of its own. Thee Deep Stone Crypt opens its doors today, letting you put all that hard-earned Europan gear to the test in the expansion’s first real endgame challenge. Or, alternatively, get ready to watch Destiny’s smartest Guardians duke it out in the race to be the first to clear Bungie’s latest sci-fi puzzle-box. (more…)

But now, Bungie have brought the hammer down on the game’s troublesome Warlocks, slapping a hefty nerf on a stasis subclass that threatened to make the race for clearing this weekend’s new raid a very short one indeed.

Destiny warlocks are rudely one-shotting bosses with the power of darkness

Destiny 2: Beyond Light finally lets our Guardians touch the darkness. But perhaps it shouldn’t have, because it’s gone and corrupted the game’s space wizards with the power to completely break any encounter Bungie throws at them. Ahead of the expansion’s first raid opening later this month, Warlocks have figured out how to use their stasis powers to instantly evaporate Destiny’s deadliest baddies. (more…)
