While you’re struggling to take down Bungie’s latest raid boss in normal mode, here’s another group to make you feel insignificant in the Destiny universe.
On Reddit /u/GladHeAteHer182 uploaded a video of his group of six warlocks taking down the machine god. In short there are a lot of punches being thrown and even more grenades getting launched during the damage phase. It’s actually ridiculous and if you hated the warlock class before it’ll only make that hate grow. Here’s the strategy breakdown:
2 Warlocks go to each side and middle. You spawn trap the shanks with melees. When the captains emerge, each player throws 2 fusion grenades and melees them. You designate an empowered person to each side, while simultaneously destroying the servitors and throwing the charges. The catch is: each impowered person must stand near the red plates that glow during the previous checkpoint, and this one. The same plates that “eat” the servitors. When Aksis teleports, the designated Guardian will proceed to jump over his back and slam. While this is happening, the other 2 players B-Line to their plates and slam the empowerment into the plate, if it glows red. Only 1 of the other 2 non-Aksis-side plates will glow. This gives the entire fireteam a super. All 6 Warlocks then activate radiance and spam fusion grenades. We had 3 players run Song of Flame, and 3 run Self-Res. While spamming grenades during first teleport, you reassign the empowered people to left, middle, and right again. Like before, if Aksis didn’t teleport to you, you had to sprint to your plate and slam if available. This enabled us to have 6 active radiances on EACH teleport. On teleport 3, we all met next to Aksis and utilized Song of Flame together. Rinse and Repeat.
Now I know what you’re thinking. What about the last dps section? They’ve explained that too.
When his health was nearing final stand, we only had the 3 non-Song of Flame guardians activate supers each teleport. These players took him to final stand. Then the 3 Song of Flame players activated supers, and everyone met in the middle. The reduced cooldowns allowed all players to kill him in final stand.
It’s incredible actually. First a group three manning it and now you’ve got a group flinging grenades and open-palming shanks for days.
