  1. Here’s a rundown on how to get the Cursebreaker title, effectively the Dreaming City collection title. First is the Dreaming City Collection badge. If you have the Wayfarer title, you should have most of this completed from filling in the Forsaken Collection badge. The armor and weapons are common enough drops when doing missions for Petra and the Ascendant Challenges, all armor pieces and some weapons can be made using your Chalice in the Menagerie. The shader is sometimes found on some Dreaming City weapons and armor, just dismantle the piece and you should get it. The Ghost shell most often drops when completing the weekly Ascendant Challenge, which you can only do once per character per week, so you’ve got 3 chances per week (the drop rate has increased since it first came out, you might only need a couple weeks of this before getting it). The sparrow, supposedly, has the highest chance when dropping after completing the weekly Dreaming City story mission (I got this so long ago I don’t remember if it was from this, from doing a Public Event, or from Blind Well). The ship most often drops after any encounter in the Shattered Throne dungeon (like when you’ve finished an area and get a Dreaming City weapon or armor piece as a reward), and again, the drop rate has increased. You’ll also need the Wish-Ender exotic bow and the Horror’s Least pulse rifle which is the exclusive drop from running the Nightfall version of The Corrupted strike. With this now in the rotation for Ordeal Nightfalls, this hopefully won’t be as hard to get. The remaining 10 Triumphs range from easy to you might need a fireteam. First, acquire the full Dreaming City armor set, which if you’ve completed the Collection badge you’ve done. The next 4 will take you 3 weeks. You’ll need to do each of the 3 Dreaming City story missions, which you pick up from Petra, that rotate every week. You’ll also need to defeat each of the 3 Blind Well bosses. These appear when you do a Blind Well run at Tier 3 and use an Unstable Charge of Light to make it Heroic. The story missions are fairly straightforward, you might want a friend for The Oracle Engine one, and Blind Well does have matchmaking. Next is visiting the Queen’s Court. On maximum curse weeks, when you do your Blind Well runs for the Offering to the Oracle, instead of the chest just appearing on the little balcony, you get to travel through the portal to Mara Sov’s fancy throne room in another dimension. That’s it. (This is also how you get the Truth to Power lore book entries if you’re working on Chronicler.) You’ll need to find all the Ahamkara bones found around the Dreaming City. They’re in public spaces, in one of the weekly story missions, in Mara's throne world, in The Corrupted strike, in the Shattered Throne dungeon, and in each weekly Ascendant Challenge (these reveal lore entries for the Marasenna book). Here’s where to find them. The last 3 are all sort of related. You’ll need to do the Shattered Throne dungeon, you’ll need to complete the quest for the Wish-Ender Exotic bow (which involves running Shattered Throne twice), and you’ll need to shoot all 40 corrupted eggs with Wish-Ender. The eggs are in similar places to the bone clusters: open world spaces, the dungeon, the strike, and the Ascendant Challenges. There are also 5 eggs in the Last Wish raid, you’ll need to put a special code into the hidden wish wall for the eggs to appear in the raid. Most are easy enough to find, there are 2 that are tricky and 1 unable to reach using wish wall checkpoints. The best way is to get Wish-Ender and do Last Wish with a full fireteam, asking beforehand to put the egg wish into the wish wall. Here are the locations of all the eggs. And that’s it. It’s a fairly doable title, I think the hardest part is getting the eggs in the Last Wish raid, but even then you can wish wall checkpoint around it and only need a fireteam to help you get through the third boss encounter. Here's the standard video guide, remember that it is a year old so some info is out of date (Shattered Throne is always available to run instead of every 3 weeks and some drop rates have increased.)
  2. I watch a bunch of The Voice blind audition videos from around the world and came across someone doing this song in this year's version of the show in France.
  3. Put me in as a backup, coach. Just in case someone else who hasn't run these raids wants to run these.
  4. Shadow is the title associated with the summer season of 2019, with the Menagerie and the raid Crown of Sorrow. With the Leviathan getting vaulted with the release of Beyond Light, this title will very likely be unobtainable after November. Crown of Sorrow is being the Forsaken DLC paywall, so if you want this title you will need to buy Foresaken. First, as always, you’ll need to complete the Collections badge. In it are all the new Menagerie-themed weapons you get from putting different rune combinations in the Chalice, the sword you get from doing Heroic Menagerie, the weapons from the Crown of Sorrow raid, a Triumph-specific ghost shell, a Triumph-specific sparrow, 4 shaders you get get on Menagerie-themed weapons or armor you get from the Chalice, an emblem for completing a menagerie run, an emblem for completing Crown of Sorrow, a full set of Opulent armor obtained from runes in the Chalice, and a full set of armor from the Crown of Sorrow raid. The ghost shell and the sparrow are connected to triumphs needed for the title, so I’ll go over those later on. Here are some images of rune combinations for the weapons and armor you’ll need. You will need to upgrade enough to be able to get blue runes. Remember that you can pick up runes by opening chests on the barge on Nessus, those chests cost 5000 Glimmer each to open. For the collection badge you will need Rose, the basic hand cannon you get from starting the Lumina quest, but you won’t need Lumina itself (it’s an interesting Exotic hand cannon, but the quest will require some PvP hand cannon kills and a difficult Gambit medal to obtain, so I won’t blame anyone who starts it to pick up Rose and then gets rid of the quest). Now comes all the triumphs. You’ll need to complete 16 of Werner 99-40’s weekly bounties. Werner is the weird robot up in the big golden barge in Watcher’s Grave on Nessus. Every week he’s got 4 different weekly bounties. Some are easy, some aren’t. Start doing those every week. There are 15 triumphs associated with the Menagerie. You’ll need to complete a run of the Menagerie without running out of time during the encounters. This means that you’ll need a little pop-up on the left-hand side of your screen (where buffs and debuffs appear) that says ‘Calus applauds you on your flawless run.’ This doesn’t mean don’t die, this means completing the encounter before the timer up near the top left-hand side of the screen runs out. This might take some time, some figuring out of the mechanics, don’t worry if this takes a little while. You’ll need to complete a run of the Menagerie in a complete set of Opulent gear. This means the Opulent armor set you get from the Chalice. You’ll also need to defeat each of the 3 bosses that can appear in the Menagerie. They rotate weekly, so best to jump in once a week to do a Menagerie run. The bosses are a large Vex Minotaur in a theatre-esque room, a large Hive Ogre in a dark and sandy room, and a large Vex Hydra in large room with a massive open space on one side (this is the room used for about half of the Menagerie encounters). You’ll need to complete the encounters The Riposte, The Hunted, The Arkborn, and The Crystals with time left on the clock, meaning get that flawless run message to pop up. These encounters are fairly straight-forward, the video I’ve linked to explains how they work. With some good coordination/knowing how the encounters work, you should be able to get these fairly quickly. You’ll need to complete The Mockery with all 3 havens preserved. This encounter works like Blind Well in the Dreaming City (if you’ve never run Blind Well, please go run some Blind Well after reading this guide). You’ll have 3 spaces, left, middle, and right, that have a bubble. Staying in the bubble keeps you alive. When you leave the bubble, you’ll have a short timer on a buff called Touch of Sky. This will keep you alive outside the bubble. Once the timer ends, you’ll have a debuff called Touch of the Deep which will slowly kill you unless you return to a bubble. To keep the bubbles up and healthy (for lack of a better word), you’ll need to kill the Sky Eater Wizards that spawn in for the orb they drop and dunk the orbs in the totem inside the bubble. 3 teams of 2 is good with 1 person on each team with some kind of solar weapon to help take down the Wizards’ shields. You’ll need to complete The Gauntlet by having all 6 players complete every lap before time runs out. If you’ve ever run the Leviathan raid, this works similar to that Gauntlet encounter. First you’ll kill enemies, defeat a large Vex boss, then all still living players will teleport into the Gauntlet-running space. You just need to run forward, doing some platforming and avoiding bumping into your teammates, making it through the doorway at the end of each section to continue your timer so you don’t die. You’ll need to do this 3 times with each Gauntlet run being more and more difficult. This can be hard to do, you might need a whole fireteam on voice. There used to be a way to cheese this by firing a grenade launcher over the finish line at the end of each run because it’s very easy to slip and fall, die to fire, or die to the expired timer, it's possible this still works. You need the Rolling Deep triumph, which means you’ll need to slot a total of 200 runes in your Chalice. Completing this triumph will get you the Sparrow that is part of the Collections badge. This can and will take some time because when you first start putting runes in the Chalice you can only do 1 at a time. The handy thing is a lot of the triumphs I’ve mentioned, plus the ones found in the Destinations/Minor/Menagerie section of your overall Triumphs will reward you with some of the Imperials needed to upgrade your Chalice. Werner’s weekly bounties will also grant you Imperials, so remember to keep doing those. Here is a recommended list of which upgrades to focus on: Slot 1, Power & Efficiency 1, Power & Efficiency 2 (P&E 2 is very important, so beeline straight to this one.) Rune Compatibility 1 Slot 2 Rune Compatibility 2 Rune Bonus 1 & Rune Bonus 2 Rune Compatibility 3, Slot 3, Rune Bonus 3, Power & Efficiency 3 (These last 4 are all your choice, really. Whichever sounds more important to you.) The next 3 will require a full 6-person fireteam and a lot of communication. You’ll need to defeat each Menagerie boss during a run of Heroic Menagerie without dying. A couple of points to remember: Heroic Menagerie has no matchmaking so you’ll definitely need a pre-made fireteam, and you just can’t die during the boss fight. During the encounters, you’re welcome to die, just not during the final boss encounter. Bring some Titan bubbles and some Warlocks with Well of Radiance, play it safe, everything should be fine. The final 6 triumphs are connected to the Crown of Sorrow raid. You’ll need to complete a flawless run of the raid, meaning no one can die. Take things slow overall, only 2 team members need to complete the jumping puzzle part, be prepared to defeat the final boss in 2 phases, and remember to keep an eye on your Witch’s Blessing timer. You’ll need to loot the chest at the end of the jumping puzzle 5 times. This is a secret triumph until you complete it, just remember that it exists. You’ll need to complete all 4 encounters without any player receiving the Witch’s Curse debuff. This happens when your timer runs out and your screen starts to turn red, so if that ever happens, you won’t get it for that encounter. The good news is you don’t need to do this in one run of the raid, it only counts per encounter. This triumph will get you the ghost shell needed for the Collections badge. You’ll need to complete the Limited Blessings challenge, which means only 2 people can have the Witch’s Blessing buff in the first encounter. Some suggestions for this are, when running 3 teams of 2 for the left, middle, and right, that only 1 person on the left and right start with the Blessing, or that only the 2 people in the middle have it and then they swap out. Basically, you can only have 2 people with Witch’s Blessing at one time. You’ll need the Total Victory challenge, which means that during the 3rd encounter when you face off against Gahlran’s Deception you need to break the shield 5 times. Try and have 1 person with Anarchy. Here’s a link to a video I found for a quick and easy way of doing this. You’ll need the With Both Hands challenge, which means that during the final encounter, when it comes time to shoot both the boss’s hands when they glow green, only 1 person can shoot 1 hand. Make sure each team decides which one will shoot the left and which will shoot the right hand, and when you get to the boss when you shoot him in the face, decide which team will shoot hands first, then second, then third if you need a 3rd damage phase. This pretty much means that when it comes time to damage the boss, only 1 person is shooting the left hand and only 1 person is shooting the right. Then, for the second boss damage phase (if you need it), a different person shoots the left hand and another different person shoots the right. This will take some pre-encounter coordination, make sure to be clear with your teammate and your fireteam as a whole as to Hands team 1, 2, and 3 if you need 3. Here’s another video guide. And that should be it. Here’s the usual video on the entire title. As always, let me know if I've missed something.
  5. I'm in for this one. Still looking for that sniper rifle.
  6. If you need someone to fill a spot I can, but only for the first hour. At 9pm I will have to leave.
  7. Here’s how to get the Blacksmith title, the title first introduced in the Black Armor season in late 2018. When Beyond Light releases later this year, it's possible that the Scourge of the Past raid will be vaulted, so that's why this guide is going up now. First, you’ll need to complete the Black Armory Collections badge. You’ll need to complete all 7 of Ada-1’s weapon frames. You’ll need to do bounties from Ada-1 that reward you the armor pieces as you’ll need 1 of each, or you can pick up a Forge Polymer from Ada-1. When you have a weapon frame ready to forge, pick one up, and right before you start the forge, go into your inventory and use/consume it. When you successfully complete the forge and the weapon frame, you should also get a piece of armor. You’ll need to complete an ignition of each of the 4 forges for 4 of the emblems, and you’ll need to complete the Lost Souvenir quest for the 5th (we’ll get to this later on). To get the Exotic ship you’ll need to complete the Master Smith triumph, which is to forge 100 weapons from Black Armory frames and research frames (those extra blue ones you can pick up from Ada-1). You’ll need to collect each shader that can sometimes drop from forging weapons and receiving armor. The New Age Black Armory shader is common, you’ll probably get it fairly quickly. The Refurbished Black Armory shader is only on those weapons with the weird number code name that sometimes drop from forges or when you defeat a Forge Saboteur in a public space. Because there’s only a chance of you getting the shader from dismantling the weapon, this might take you a while (it took me more than a year). The other 4 shaders come from weapons or armor that you get from completing 1 of the forges, Rasmussen Clan comes from Volundr, House of Meyrin from Gofannon, and Satou Tribe from Izanami. The Bergusian Night shader only drops from curated weapons and armor. Remember that the forges rotate daily, so if you miss a forge you might have to wait 3 days for it to come back around, but the order will always be the same. Volundr, Gofannon, Izanami, Bergusia. QUICK NOTE: do not dismantle a weapon or armor piece right away for the shader, you will need them, try and save this for last unless you have extra pieces. The Collection badge used to require you to get the emblem from the Niobe Labs puzzle, but the badge is complete for me and I don’t have it, so either it’s a bug or they’ve removed this requirement because of the difficulty of the Niobe Labs puzzle. Now we’ve hit specific triumphs. You’ll need to complete the Master Smith triumph. Again, you’ll need to do this for the ship for Collections, so now there’s 2 reasons to do it. You’ll also need to complete 30 bounties from Ada-1 and 6 of her rare bounties. You’ll also need to complete the A Study in Obsidian triumph, which you get when completing the Lost Souvenir/Mysterious Datapad quest line. This comes from/with the Mysterious Box quest for Izanagi’s Burden. For this you will need a full set of Black Armor armor (remember those Forge Polymers?), Spiteful Fang, Tatara Gaze, Hammerhead, and Izanagi’s Burden (or a friend who also has Izanagi’s so you don’t have to switch weapons and ammo scrounge). First there’s a little mission over at the Bergusia Forge, you’ll literally have to travel there from the EDZ, then you’ll need to complete 1 of each forge wearing a full armor set and using all Black Armory weapons. These next two might have changed because they’re from before forges moved to a daily rotation, but you’ll need to forge specific weapons in both the EDZ forges and the Nessus forges. How it used to be was only certain weapons frames could be completed in certain forges. You needed to forge the machine gun, the auto rifle, and the sword in the Volundr Forge, the sniper and the hand cannon in the Gofannon Forge, and the bow and the pulse rifle in the Izanami Forge. Any weapon frame could be crafted in the Bergusia Forge and had a chance of dropping the curated roll (with the Bergusian Night shader). It’s possible this has changed, I have no way of knowing. Try and do it this way to see if you unlock the triumphs. The next 4 are a grind. You’ll need to get 500 kills in each forge with a specific weapon: 500 kills in Volundr with the Exotic fusion rifle Jotunn, 500 kills in Gofannon with the Exotic bow Le Monarque, 500 kills in Izanami with Exotic sniper rifle Izanagi’s Burden, and 500 kills in Bergusia with legendary shotgun Threat Level. The 3 exotics are obtainable through quests (Jotunn and Le Monarque used to be random drops), best to pick those up quickly and work on them as you complete weapon frames. 2 are easy enough quests, but the one for Izanagi's Burden will take some time. The shotgun is only obtainable through the Scourge of the Past raid. Next are 6 Scourge of the Past raid-specific triumphs, these might take some time and skill. You’ll need to complete a flawless run of Scourge of the Past, meaning no one can die. I believe you can pull players forward, just no deaths. Remember to take your time and communicate with your raid team. You’ll also need to trigger 6 buttons in the Botza District area, here’s a link to a location guide for those. You’ll need to complete the To Each Their Own challenge triumph, in which each player shoots out 1 and 1 only of the final boss’s 6 shield points. Coordinate on this beforehand. You’ll need the Hold the Line challenge, which happens during the first encounter. Basically, you can’t let the map charge get below 50%, meaning don’t let the timer get below half. You’ll need to pick up the pace a little during this encounter. Again, here’s a guide. You’ll need the All for One, One for All challenge, which means each player must deposit 1 of each symbol during the vault access/second to last encounter. This will take some time, you can’t quickly burn through the boss when doing this challenge. Here’s a guide. For the triumph Fast and Unwieldy, you need to escape Ablazed Glory without losing a single fireteam member. In the video I’ve linked to at the end of this guide there’s a cheesy way on how to get it. You’ll also need to loot hidden chests in the raid 5 times for the final triumph, which is the secret chest you find after the sparrow racing section connected to the triumph above. Currently, Scourge is uncapped which means you can farm it constantly for weapons, armor, and the raid exotic weapon, but the secret chest is not. (If I'm wrong about this, let me know.) A quick note regarding Izanagi's Burden and rare bounties. At one point in the Izanagi's quest you will need to complete a rare bounty. If you get one before you get to this step, hold onto it and don't turn in it. They can be a bit of a rare drop. Just keep doing the daily and weekly bounties from Ada-1 and you should get one to drop within a week. And that’s it. Here’s a video guide I found detailing everything I’ve talked about above. Note that at the end of the video, when he talks about random drops of Le Monarque and Jotunn, this isn't how it works anymore, these are now quests to pick up from Ada-1. As always, if you have any question or you think I’ve missed something, feel free to let me know.
  8. Hi Speccles!! Also, I hard agree with you. Bugs can be pretty gross.
  9. Time for July's catch-up event. Bring your unfinished quests and we'll try and help you get through them.
  10. It's time! Time for catch-up day. With the release of Beyond Light now pushed back to November, there's even more time to get things done before weapon sunsetting and locations get vaulted. Come by on Sunday the 26th at 4pm eastern time with your unfinished quests and tasks you've been putting off. Finished Shadowkeep but don't have Xenophage or Deathbringer? Want to at least start the Divinity quest so you can run Garden of Salvation to finally get it? Need some help finding all the Calcified Light pieces for Ruinous Effigy? Then come on by and we'll get these started for you.
  11. Update: the release of Beyond Light has been pushed back from September 22 to November 10.
  12. Because something's come up for me tomorrow, I'm amending my Friday status to more of a post 9:30pm EDT backup if you ever need one.
