Two of one of the best Destiny gamers on the planet proved their expertise once more this weekend.

Destiny: Rise of Iron has been totally smashed by gamers. The new raid, Wrath of the Machine, was accomplished in a couple of hours, and the identical factor occurred when the Hard Mode launched this previous week.

Continually searching for methods to problem themselves, Destiny gamers have been diving into the raid in smaller and smaller teams, searching for methods to get round mechanics designed for teams of six. This weekend, two gamers each managed to defeat Aksis, the ultimate boss of Wrath of the Machine, totally alone.

ScaRdrow was the primary on the planet to handle this feat, and you’ll watch his efficiency above. He was carefully adopted by sc_slayerage, whose run is on YouTube for those who’re . Both gamers described this problem as essentially the most demanding of something Destiny has thrown at them.

If you don’t play Destiny – otherwise you do, however you don’t raid – you may not perceive why that is such an enormous deal; even watching the video doesn’t actually talk simply how spectacular that is.

The factor is, Destiny’s raids are intentionally designed for six gamers working in excellent unison. It’s not only a matter of dodging hearth and capturing the weak spots; to be able to injury bosses gamers want to finish numerous challenges or rituals – and survive whereas doing so.

In this explicit encounter, the boss, Aksis, can solely be broken when he’s shocked. In order to stun Aksis, one in all three randomly chosen gamers with buff known as Empowered wants to succeed in him naked moments after he teleports to one in all 4 doable areas. In order to get Aksis to teleport, gamers have to throw three SIVA prices (bombs) at his protect. To generate every of those three SIVA Charges, gamers have to destroy Servitors (massive floating eyeballs) with an identical elemental cannon. To get the cannon, gamers have to destroy an elite Captain which can unload stated cannon at them.

Oh, and did I point out that you just solely have a couple of seconds to get to every Servitor, which spawns nicely away from the matching cannon? And that you may’t throw SIVA Charges for those who’ve used a cannon? (That’s why you’ll see ScaRdrow kill himself and self-resurrect.) And it is advisable to get all three Captains, Servitors and bombs accomplished in a brief window of time? And that it is advisable to stun Aksis 3 times every injury spherical? And that empowerment shifts between gamers after every stun, so you need to juggle your staff across the enviornment so somebody’s shut sufficient to get him? And that in most of this the room is flooded with rapid-firing provides, to not point out Aksis’s cannon hearth and chronic injury over time traps? And that everybody actually wants a really excessive degree of DPS to succeed earlier than the staff runs out of protected areas to run to after every injury spherical? An a few hundred different concerns?

Daunting, isn’t it! For a participant to handle it solo is wonderful. Taking the empowerment shuffle out of the equation helps, however attending to Aksis in time to stun him greater than makes up for no matter issue that drains away.

If you’ve by no means raided in Destiny, it’s actually value having a go; get your self onto The100 and e-book in with a Sherpa for subsequent weekend or no matter.

For those that do play Destiny at a raid degree and are interested by how the actually good gamers do it, ScaRdrow posted his construct and technique particulars on Reddit.

Dang. Some Destiny gamers are actually on one other degree.
