In one of the most iconic scenes in the Destiny franchise, you have defeated the Warpriest, Golgoroth, and the Daughters of Oryx. This puts you against the Taken King himself. The Oryx encounter is even more difficult if you fail to complete the Hands Off challenge.
The Taken King's assault is without doubt the most complex in Kings Fall, with a ton of moving parts that players must deal with at the same time. Players must stand on platforms to materialize pathways leading to the Brand Stealer buff, but four Ogres will also spawn throughout the region.
On death, these Ogres will create Blights that players must detonate in order to prevent Oryx from using his (instant wipe) Doxology attack. A Knight will spawn on the other side of the room, rushing to remove the Blights required for Oryx's damage phase. And all that happens while players are randomly torn between dimensions and can't attack or use abilities.
Though the Hands Off challenge might be the toughest raid challenge in Kings Fall, it does not affect how players approach the match, although it adds a rotation element to the encounter. Here's how you can complete it.
In Destiny 2s Kings Fall raid, how do you complete the Hands Off (Oryx) challenge?
Players may not kill the same Ogre and Knight more than once in the Hands Off challenge, which also includes the two Ogres that spawn during the Final Stand mechanic.
A Knight will spawn on the other side of the room and will beeline for the Blight related to that Ogre, so killing both the Ogre and the Knight rapidly is essential. For the challenge, you want to swap out players after they have killed the Ogre and the Knight.
The Knight and Ogre spawns are shown in a blank template community artist Taux created for the original Kings Fall. Weve coded the Ogres based on where they spawn, and the Knights based on which way they'll go for the Blight.
Players who are split between dimensions will naturally be unable to kill any Ogres or Knights in that round, which means someone will have to fill in for them. Ideally, players will kill both the Ogre and the Knight quickly, and they can be torn before killing the Ogre or Knight. This means someone will have to step in and keep an eye on the Ogre/Knight kills in subsequent runs.
The longer it takes to defeat the boss, the harder it becomes, with more rules to enforce.
Players should bring what they normally bring to an Oryx encounter, including weapons that can do significant damage for the Ogres and Knights, as well as Oryx himself. Pairing them with a sniper rifle might help boost players' damage output while still having ammunition to use against Oryx.
