Destiny 2: Curse of Osiris impressions

I am currently playing as a Titan (or what you might be familiar with as tank fury). Destiny 2 is a very different gameplay experience from what I have played in the past 17 years in terms of FPS games: a resume that includes Far Cry, Crysis 1/2, Doom, Half-Life 2, and Overwatch — to name a few. I am age 46, though. So I have over 35 years of gaming experience. I can say I enjoyed most of the Destiny 2 single player, except for the last boss: Ghaul.

My nigh daily gameplay consists in farming faction reputation with the Osiris followers, and Zavala. I play a lot of public events, Adventures (Daily World Quests), Patrol events, I complete challenges in the Heroic Strikes (dungeon runs) and the challenges in Nessus, EDZ, IO, Mercury, and Titan.

Destiny 2: Fall of Osiris Digital Comic

Bungie posted the Destiny 2: Fall of Osiris digital comic, a 10-page One-Shot as the origin story of the warlock Osiris. The story takes us a few years back when Osiris was the leader of the Vanguard and teacher to a young Ikora Rey. Other character cameos in this story: the Speaker and the titan named Saint-14.

It seems that the Traveler is not what the Vanguard think it is, and that the teachings of the Speaker are wrong. However, not everything is revealed in this one-shot, and the story will continue.

A One-Shot of Ikora’s origin story will be posted very soon. Keep an eye for that one too. Hopefully, that sheds some “Light” into the mystery of the Traveler, and the Vex.

You can read the digital comic here.

Destiny 2 Campaign (Part 8): Hope, Secure the Control Center

CINEMATIC

Speaker: It would save us both a lot of time if you would just kill me.

Ghaul: For one who calls himself “Speaker”… you have remarkably little to say. We’ve learned that one of your Guardians has reconnected to the Light. You say you have no power over the Traveler, yet… this. Help me understand, Speaker.

Speaker: The Light lives in all places… in all things… You can block it… even try to trap it. But the Light will find its way. And the Traveler will protect itself.

Ghaul: The Traveler… For years, I have studied it… the worlds it has touched… its power over life and death. We are not so different… your Traveler and I.

Speaker: You are nothing like the Traveler. NOTHING. You think you have power. Control. I know your kind. You started small… you will end small.

Ghaul: If the Traveler truly has chosen humanity of its own free will… then there is no reason I should not reach inside… tear out the Light for myself, and leave this system in ashes!

Speaker: Only those the Traveler chooses will be reborn in the Light.

Ghaul: Yes. This I know. This is why I have claimed your planet, and why you still live. The Traveler WiLL choose me, Speaker. And you are going to tell me how.

The Farm NPC: Suraya Hawthorne

Once a wanderer beyond the City, Suraya Hawthorne now acts as a liason between humanity and the Guardians.

Clan Steward Suraya Hawthorne: This is- hoo – a lot of civilization. For me, at least. Course, I’ve been living outside the City half my life. So. Huh. Anyway, heard you want to go poke around that busted-up hunk of Traveler. You Guardians have a weird idea of a good time.

Ah, well. Louis and I know plenty about trusting your gut. So I’m not about to stop you. I got enough to deal with here. Take that ship you flew here. At least it’lll get you back faster. See all these refugees? I haven’t lost one yet. Don’t you be my first.

      THE RED WAR

      Hawthorne prefers the solitary life, choosing to live beyond the Wall. Despite this, she took charge of this camp to help the refugees of the City survive in unfamiliar and dangerous lands. She wants to help you out and offers you a ship for your journey.

      Follow your vision to the Shard of the Traveler by completing mission SPARK in the EDZ.

 

The Farm NPC: Gunsmith Arcite 99-40

Once a champion of the Red Jack frames, Arcite now serves Shaxx and Sahlia as an aide-de-camp. Arcite can be found at The Farm. Standing near Shaxx after you complete the mision at the Shard of the Traveler.

1. To dismantle a weapon, get near the Gunsmith and press (E) to open the UI.
2. Now hover the mouse over a weapon you are not currently using. Press and hold (F) to dismantle the weapon into Gunsmith materials.

Faction Rewards: You can buy weapons from Arcite, and you can dismantle rare or legendary gear to get Gusmith materials and earn Level 20 rewards from the Gunsmiths. You can click the engram to open a sub-menu with powerful weapons at level 15.

 

The Farm NPC: Tyra Karn

Tyra Karn is a historian and Cryptarch who decodes engrams and seeks the treasures of humanity’s past.

THE RED WAR

Tyra escaped the City and found refuge in this camp as well. She, too, lost her connection to the Light and learned you had a vision of the Shard. Tyra cautions you against the danger of the surrounding Dark Forest and your newfound mortality.

Take this gift from Tyra and go talk to the reluctant leader of this camp, Suraya Hawthorne.

 

Tyra: Oh, I’m glad to see you safe. I am Tyra, Tyra Karan- I’m sorry, have we met before? Losing my connection to the Light has been… disorienting. Now, I understand you seek the Shard of the Traveler. I, too, have dreamt of it.

It’s jagged, broken edge. A wound that never heals. But I do not trust its pull. Like us, the Shard no longer knows the Light; not since the Traveler cast it off during the Collapse. For centuries it has twisted and corrupted everything around it. Where it lies is now a place of death.

If you are determined to go, remember: we Guardians are no longer immortal.
