Long Live The King, part 7

Destiny, part 8

Been a while since I wrote an update about my Destiny adventures.  I’m still stuck trying to get the last 4 trophies before I get the Platinum:  Flawless Raider – Complete a raid without anyone on your fireteam dying, Triple Play – Kill a Hunter, Titan, and Warlock without dying in a PvP match, Excessive Force – Register 25 kills in PvP with heavy weapons, and, Relic Hunter – Assist in capturing 20 capture points in Salvage.  The only trophy I’m missing from The Taken King DLC is Long Live the King – Complete the King’s Fall Raid (Heroic).

In other news, as Year Two is coming to a close, we’ve been working on the Year Two Moments of Triumph.  I called one of them as soon as I learned of their existence in the game – those damned Calcified Fragments.  I knew they were going to be one just because of the amount of time and complexity involved.  At the time of this writing, the only ones I’m missing from the total of 50 are the 3 from each of the challenges in King’s Fall – The Warpriest, Golgoroth and Oryx himself.  Considering that (at the time of this writing) there’s about 3 weeks to go until Rise of Iron and there’s only one challenge available per week, it’s not likely that I’ll claim that challenge as complete unless I manage to get really, really lucky.  The only challenge that I am trying to actively get is a completion for King’s Fall Hard Mode so I can get the Shader.

Edit:  so while writing this post, we managed to get a group together since we had a checkpoint at Oryx, thanks to the web site and app the100.io (https://www.the100.io/community).  So now I have that Calcified Fragment!

There’s a guy on my PSN friends list – dirtchamber10 – his name is Dan.  Dan is very eager to get all the Year Two Moments of Triumph, especially the completion of King’s Fall Hard Mode.  His conviction is admirable to the point of being annoying.  I’m convinced that he’ll get the clear before we (we being the guys from New Zealand and myself) will.  Now that Phil and Stark have completed King’s Fall on normal mode, they have a bit more confidence about trying to run it more often and trying to get a hard mode clear themselves.

As far as I’m concerned, clearing King’s Fall on hard will be my crowning achievement in Year Two and it will be the last Year Two Moment of Triumph I’m actively seeking.  If I get all 50 Calcified Fragments then I get them, if not then I won’t lose any sleep over it.

Hopefully this new found interest by the others wanting to do King’s Fall more often won’t interfere too much with my play time with Deus Ex:  Mankind Divided.
