Weeks Active: 9/26/17 & 10/18/17
Nightfall: Pyramidion with the modifiers Torrent and Zero Hour.
Torrent allows all guardians abilities to have an insanely quick cooldown timer and Zero Hour gives you a predetermined time which can not be extended.
Prestige timer: 17 minutes
Recommended Element: Arc and Void
There are two alters players must stand on to proceed to the next part. Players may elect to break off into smaller teams of two and a lone wolf to trigger these plates simultaneously. Eliminate the harpies and goblins scattered around to proceed the quest marker to “defeat the vex”. Use power weapons like grenades launchers to clear out the enemies quickly to focus on the boss enemy Harpy that spawns in. Once all enemies are defeated move on to the step area.
Run past all the enemies and quickly make it to the bottom. Run past the lasers to arrive at the next stop to fight.
Recommended Element: Arc, Solar, and Void
Eliminate all enemies on your left first, then move on towards the center having a member of your team using their ultimate ability. Afterwards, take care of the last few enemies and head through the warpgate.
Safely pass the next lasers that change on a timer. The large room will have three altars that you must activate like the beginning of this strike. Head to the left first while someone else thins the crowd in the center. The person who activated the left plate should migrate towards the back taking out enemies until they reach the back plate. Meanwhile the other two players should be taking over the right plate. Run past the enemies that spawn in and leap through the warp gate.
Recommended Element: Arc and Solar
Like the first lasers, run past all taking your time or madly dashing through. Quicker guardians should use their grenades to thin out some enemies to make the run easier on their teammates.
Recommended Element: Arc
Take out the snipers on the top then hack the first tower. Either split into two groups or head as one pack towards the next towers. There is one on the left, one on the right and one below the center. After you have activated all, head through the last warpgate and get ready to tackle the boss.
Recommended Element: Arc and Void
Recommended Tips: Cycle ultimates to clear adds and damage the boss. Spam Grenades, Melee and Class Abilites due to Torrent modifier.
Weak Point: Red head slit for the first half and then his white torso for the last half
The boss will spawn in, attack him with grenades and headshots to make him retreat quickly. He will then raise a protective wall. Head to the left and activate an altar whilst tossing grenades when the ability is up. Move quickly and erratically towards the next point on the right of the wall. After activating this altar, his protective wall will fall and you may damage him again. Watch out for his flame attack as it will deal damage over time. Dealing enough damage to him makes him teleport to the left side of the map and set up shop again. This time the altar will be in front of you and several adds will spawn in. Take care of them using void weapons and head to the right to trigger the last altar.
By now the boss should be pretty low and will call for backup. Use your ultimates to clear the adds to better help you survive the onslaught. Use arc and void weapons to quickly melt the shielded enemies and continue damaging the boss.
