Okay, man, it’s hard to even keep track of what’s going on here. It took about six hours, but the Destiny 2 Deep Stone Crypt raid has finally been cleared. I. believe I was watching the world premiere when it happened, Clawtivity and his team, although Bungie says it probably won’t be until Monday when they can officially announce it to make sure everything is legal.
The raid took us down to the depths of Europa then, surprisingly, all the way up to a huge space station.
And then… back down again as the space station strikes to Europa and the final battle takes place against a revived, Shank-ified version of Taniks, a rather odd final boss, but a hell of a conceptual raid around, one of the better ones I’ve seen from Destiny.
There will be plenty of time to go through that later, but first we need to talk about all the things that have just been triggered.
There is a new heartbreak when you go to Europa which happens at the end of the raid. It’s not much, but it’s interesting and hints at many new mysteries to come.
We have a new question from Variks, which is a real mission I haven’t done yet, but about to do.
We have a new query from the Exo Stranger where we have to kill things in new “Eclipsed Zones”. This is a modified version of a current zone where debris falls. I’m not sure what else is different but at the moment my map shows me that the domain is Eventide Ruins. Not sure if this rotates daily. The prize for this current quest is a new Europa sidearm.
Finally, we have the exotic quest for The Lament, the chainsaw sword, of Banshee-44 that has just started. I found this spoiled for me but let me say it contains some wild literature. I’m not sure how many steps there are for the inquest itself.
So, in short, there are at least three new questions to follow as we speak, all triggered by the end of the raid. I don’t know if anything else was revealed like a new Crucible map, but I haven’t heard anything like that yet. But it’s still minutes after clearing, so who knows. This is a very Last Wish-esque with major changes coming after the raid, and I love all the new things to do.
You can still watch your favorite players try to beat the raid themselves or you can go to the game and do many of these new things for yourself and see what comes out of it. I’ll see what I can do tonight and report back with some updates later. Stay tuned.
