GRANDMASTER DIFFICULTY

Info from Bungie Blog post:

In a few weeks, Bungie will debut a new difficulty selection for The Ordeal called Grandmaster. It will test your fireteam’s coordination, communication, builds, and skill like no other activity in Destiny to date.

Here’s a look at a few of the goals Bungie had when approaching Grandmaster after they saw how the rest of The Ordeal was received:

  • Grandmaster should build on Master difficulty, but be significantly more challenging.
  • Once you reach a certain bar, the challenge should be found completely in perfecting your builds, communication, and execution.
  • The primary rewards should be doled out on initial completion.
  • Completion should be the primary metric for success, rather than score or time or another in-activity metric like ‘killing all Champions’
  • Grandmaster should stress the top end of build crafting.
  • Grandmaster should be watchable.

To attempt Grandmaster, you will need to be Power Level 1025 which is 15 Power above the Pinnacle cap but will be 25 Power below the activity which will be set at a Power Level of 1050. Bungie is also going to have something similar to the Contest mode we introduced for Crown of Sorrow. You will gain no extra advantage for being higher than 1025. They wanted to require a mixture of pinnacle rewards and artifact power to get you prepared for this, but not make you feel like you had to put in a ton of extra hours over-leveling the activity.

Bungie is introducing some new modifiers along with some familiar ones, including Extinguish (if your team wipes, it sends you back to orbit) and Limited Revives (you start with a small pool of shared team revives and you get more every time you kill a Champion). Bungie doesn’t want to spoil everything, so there are a few other wrinkles they’ll let you discover when it goes live.

Does this sound like a worthy challenge so far? Bungie hope it does, and as a reward, you’ll have increased chances of being awarded Exotic armor and Masterworking materials. But the main draw of the mode is the new Seal and title available for beating each of the Grandmaster Ordeal Strikes once during the Season: Conqueror. Bungie wants this to be one the most challenging titles to get, but they want it to be approachable for anyone to try who puts in the time and dedication with their team during a given Season.

Grandmaster Ordeal will begin on April 21.
