Scarlet Keep Grandmaster Nightfall Guide in Destiny 2
The strikes in Destiny 2 are separated by difficulty: Vanguard, Nightfall: The Ordeal, and Grandmaster Nightfall. Grandmaster Nightfall are the most demanding strikes with a required power level of 1325 and recommended power of 1350.
For this week’s Scarlet Keep, it is recommended to use a Titan, specifically a Sentinel with the Towering Barricade, Strafe Lift, Shield Throw, and Vortex Grenades abilities. These will help you defend yourself while still inflicting great damage. For aspects, you should have Controlled Demolition to increase the damage by the grenades, along with Offensive Bullwark and Bastion. For Fragments, you need Echo of Undermining, Echo of Leeching, and Echo of Remnants to weaken the enemies and increase the damage from Vortex Grenades.
For weapons, the Judgement Hand Cannon with Demolitionist trait is recommended so you won’t have to worry about ammo as this trait will allow the grenade to regenerate faster. For special weapon, the player should use the Deafening Whisper Grenade Launcher with the Wellspring trait as it will help regenerate abilities faster. You can also carry the Gjallahorn Rocket Launcher for explosive damage.
For armor, it is advisable to use the Heart of Inmost Light for chest armor as this will allow abilities to regenerate faster. For mods, you should put on Thermoshock Plating, Seeking Wells, Volatile Flow, Well of Tenacity, Font of Might and Elemental Ordinance. These will increase damage resistance, and ability regeneration.
Teammate 1 Loadout
For this one, another teammate should be a Nightstalker in the Hunter subclass. For abilities, they can choose Gambler’s Dodge, Triple Jump, Snare Bomb and Vortex Grenades. For aspects, the teammate should go for the Trapper’s Ambush and Vanishing Step to maintain invisibility in the battlefield. For fragments, the teammate should have the same Echo of Undermining, Echo of Persistence, and Echo of Obscurity to increase their invisibility stats.
For the weapon, the teammate can go for the Arbalest, Insidious Pulse Rifle, and Palmyra-B. For armor, they should go for the Aeon Swift, this armor grants the teammates with heavy ammo when an enemy is defeated. This ability complements the invisibility build. For mods, they should have Seeking Wells, Reaping Wellmaker, and Bountiful Wells.
Teammate 2 Loadout
A second teammate, preferably a Shadebinder in the Warlock subclass will work best with the team. For abilities, the teammate should choose the Coldsnap Grenade and Penumral Blast. For aspects, they should choose the Bleak Watcher and Glacial Harvest for spawning shards. For Fragments, Whisper of Fissures, Whisper of Conduction, Whisper of Bonds and Whisper of Torment are recommended.
For weapons, the teammate should go for the Fel Taradiddle Combat Bow with Archer’s Tempo and Explosive Head traits for the barriers. The Insidious Pulse Rifle and the Gjallahorn Rocket Launcher are ideal choices, too.
For armor, the Osiomancy Gloves is highly recommended as will provide them with two more Cold Snap Grenades. For mods, Elemental Shards, Elemental Charge, Protective Light and Striking Light are good options.
Scarlet Keep has an arc modifier where the Arc damage dealt is increased by 25 percent and the Arc damage received is increased by 50 percent. The Hunter teammate should take down Champions and Lucients with their invisibility. Doing so allows two teammates to inflict explosive damage with the Gjallahorn, without worrying about ammo.
On the elevator section of the keep, enemies will attack from all sides. Players will have to figure out a proper cover as barriers and shields will keep on sinking as the elevator goes up. Use the Gjallahorn to take down enemies instantly.
The Boss fight will be difficult. But there is an area in the map, outside of the boss fight area and behind the pile of skulls and bones, where players can regenerate their abilities and health. Be patient and wait for enemies to come near, rather than jumping straight into battle. It is also advisable for the players to use their heavies for the champions and not the boss as the latter can be taken down by any weapon.
Genshin Impact: Totem Puzzle in ‘Garden of Endless Pillars’ Guide
Lighting the Pyro Totems in the correct order will help you complete this puzzle, and unlock a fast travel waypoint.
The Garden of Endless Pillars is located within the northwestern part of the Sumeru Desert. Once you’ve reached there, you’ll notice a giant slab cemented in the dunes, along with various Pyro totems surrounding it nearby.
There will be various mirage walls across the region, but they should be fairly easy to traverse, while hitting the totems with Pyro attacks.
We’ll explain how to successfully complete the Totem Puzzle in the “Garden of Endless Pillars” Guide – read on for our walkthrough.
The very first thing you’ll need to do is go to the Garden of Endless Pillars location on the map, which we’ve indicated in the screenshots below.
Once you’ve reached The Garden of Endless Pillars, you’ll need to switch over to Amber, as you’ll have to utilize Pyro attacks on the corresponding totems.
The first totem is extremely easy, as there are no walls blocking you – simply take a right upon entering the area, and shoot the totem.
To reach the second totem (pictured above) you will have to walk forward a fair bit until you spot the totem located in the right-hand corner. As you are blocked by the wall, you will need to traverse onto the concrete pillars to get a vantage point from which you can target the second totem.
Head right for the next totem, located in front of crumbled concrete walls. To find the last two totems, proceed forward and take a slight left. The very last one is located to the right, opposite of the prior totem.
Hitting all the totems will cause the slab to activate, and after this sequence, you will unlock a fast travel point for this region, which you can then use moving forward throughout the new update.
