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!

Something strange has happened this week Guardians! The back part of the Tower where Lord Saladin used to reside during Iron Banner is now open. So for those that do not have the Ghost…Go get it!


Challenge mode – Aksis

Nightfall – Recommended light 380

This week’s Nightfall is the Shadow Thief, The Devil Splicers made Taniks Perfected. He’s back in his old Wolfship near the Moon. Board it and eliminate the threat he poses.

The modifiers for this week are as follows:-

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

Specialist – Secondary weapon damage is favored. 

Chaff – Player radar is disabled.

Match Game – Enemy shields are resistant to none matched elemental damage.

Airborne – Player damage is increased while in the air.

This week the nightfall will pit you against the new version of Taniks. As with last weeks version, this one includes SIVA nodes and SIVA fallen. Players shouldn’t have too much trouble this week, all they need to watch out for is during the last encounter with Taniks. You will find his Scorch Cannon will fire a great deal quicker and a direct hit will result in death. The last fight has also changed tactic wise. After Taniks takes some damage he will gain a shield. Destroy the SIVA nodes and then destroy him.

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 Radiant treasure box!
