Destiny’s King’s Fall raid is going to get a lot harder this week

I don’t…I don’t want to talk about King’s Fall. And I most certainly do not want to talk about the fact that I’m now on a first-name basis with the black void of Oryx’s dimension after having fallen into that abyss one too many times during THAT specific sequence. King’s Fall veterans, you know what I’m talking about.

I’ve yet to beat the King’s Fall raid, but I totally will eventually, thanks to the fantastic community of Destiny players who have offered to help me get through this difficult and trying time. Thing is, they’ll be holding my bloody and severed hand during an even more difficult challenge, as the King’s Fall raid adds extra challenges later this week.

Extra challenges of course, coming from the hard mode addition.. On on Friday, 23rd October at 10am Pacific time, King’s Fall will open up doors to give Guardians an even more insurmountable challenge to tackle. And you might be wondering, what makes a difficulty mode newsworthy, while I quickly hide some scraped barrels in the corner.

But that’s the charm of Destiny you see. That extra layer of difficulty; that spike in enemies and their resistance to your finest Hawkmoons and Monte Carlos. And overcoming all of that, powering through and finding your groove with your pals? That’s what makes the challenge worthwhile. That, and there better be some decent loot at the end.

According to Eurogamer, loot dropped from this Raid will be between 310 and 320 on the light level scale. Considering that I haven’t even cracked the magical 300 number in Destiny, this already has me drooling. More so than usual, anyway. Also, keep an eye out on Nightfall Strikes later this week.

They’ll be getting a tune-up to reward players with better loot as well, to make all the effort in completing them worthwhile.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia’s M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!

    So the Destiny gamers can hone their skills to be on par when Halo is released.

    Already starting to lose interest in this. Having to watch people tea bag me with raid gear in the useless Iron Banner is depressing enough. Or maybe it’s Destiny fatigue. In any case it’s time to go to orbit. I mean play something else. Damn this addiction

      I am done. I haven’t even played one Iron Banner match. There is no point to it anymore, it is just another PvP mode now… I used it to level up as it was the only way to get to end game level but now they want me to play it for light level 280 gear? Uhm… no!

  • Jonah Cash

    Mmmm… I haven’t played Destiny in over a week now. I am pretty much done with it I think. The only thing that kept me going through these times were the Iron Banner. But now I can’t even use the Iron Banner to upgrade past 300… Loving to play on my own there is literally no way for me to get past 300… So I am done. Had a lot of fun though, might return for later content but it won’t be my game of choice when I turn my PS4 on anymore.

    • Guild

      You do the raid yet?

      • Jonah Cash

        Nope, have still not played more than an hour on any of the Raids… I have been unfortunate enough to have invited to Raids by idiots so far and I just can’t handle it. So I am pretty much just over it for now. Will see if I get back to it again at some point but I am going to find a nice linear story game to play. (which means I will have to look at old games)
