Hello Guardians!

Another week has passed us by and we move into another reset period. This week we get 3 more artifacts, a new nightfall and a change to the heroic strikes modifiers. Read on to gain some insight on whats to come and how to conquer!

Challenge mode – Vosik



Nightfall – Recommended light 380

This week’s Nightfall is the Abomination Heist. The Fallen Devil Splicers are intent on using SIVA technology to experiment on the Hive. Stop them from stealing an abomination from the Summoning pits.

The modifiers for this week are as follows:-

Epic – Heavily shielded and highly aggressive enemies appear in great numbers.

Arc Burn – Damage using Arc weapons and abilities is doubled, but you will receive triple damage from such sources.

Specialist – Special weapon damage is favored. 

Juggler – Ammo does not drop for the currently equipped weapon.

Exposure – Player shields are increased but recharge at a much slower rate.

This week the nightfall should pose no issues for any Guardian. Make sure to switch your weapons around to prevent running low on ammo. The Zhalo Supercell works wonders up until the boss and then give the 4th Horsemen a try to kill the Abomination. Beware the Hive Boomers 😉


SIVA crisis heroic strikes – Recommended light 350

This week will see another selection of modifiers to keep you on your toes. Remember your first completion of the week will net you a Treasures of the Dawning box!

Arc Burn – Damage using Arc weapons and abilities is doubled, but you will receive triple damage from such sources.

Brawler – Player melee damage is greatly increased.

Ironclad – More enemies will have shields.
