Brave fireteams all over the world will have 24 hours to finish the raid in Contest Mode. The first team across the finish line will have their victory immortalized with Vow of the Disciple World First raid belts.
The World First race for Vow of the Disciple will take place in Contest Mode. This is a unique variant of the raid, only offered for the first 24 hours, capping every Guardian at a specific Power level to ensure an even playing field. Bungie announced last week that 1530 Power is your target, as this will be the highest Power your Guardian will perform at against the enemies you face.
Here’s a quick list for all who are in the hunt for the World First win:
Vow of Disciple Race Timeline
- Starts: Saturday, March 5, 10 AM Pacific
- Ends: Sunday, March 6, 10 AM Pacific
Congrats to the back-to-back World’s First winners, clan Elysium!
Contest Mode will cap all players at 20 Power below each encounter of the raid for the full 24 hours of the race.
- Artifact power is enabled, but only provides benefit to players up to the cap of 1530 power for contest mode.
- You’ll want to reach 1530 Power by Saturday to have a fighting chance in each encounter.
- Some gear items will be disabled in the raid for the duration of contest mode due to general issues that could provide gameplay benefits. While these items may be used in other activities, perks and functionality on the following items will be nullified within the Vow of the Disciple Raid, with additional negative impacts to power levels if equipped:
- IKELOS_SMG_V1.0.2 Legendary SMG
- Imperial Needle Legendary Bow
- Grand Overture Exotic Machine Gun
- Wardcliff Coil Exotic Rocket Launcher
- Armor & Mods
- Wormgod Caress Titan Exotic Gauntlets
- Peregrine Greaves Titan Exotic Legs
- Suppressing Glaive Artifact Armor Mod
- Note: Additional items may be disabled if issues are found prior to the start of the race. Stay tuned to @BungieHelp for the final list to be published on Saturday morning.
- The first team to complete all encounters, loot the final chest, and return to orbit will earn the title of World First.
- Note: The six fireteam members present upon the completion of the final encounter will be declared the winners and be awarded raid World First title belts, any member of the fireteam who leaves during earlier encounter completions will not qualify.
- Winners will be announced via @DestinyTheGame after a validation process – more details on that below.
Note: Art to be updated after World First completion.
Bungie will be watching as players progress through each encounter, ensuring a fair race among all participants. Any players found to be breaking Bungie’s Terms of Service or manipulating game content can be subject to suspensions or bans. Once they have record of a fireteam crossing the finish line, the Bungie team will spend some time validating a clean completion before announcing the World First fireteam via @DestinyTheGame on Twitter. Full rules and legal terms can be found here.

Well that is all for now, there will be no spoilers from me. I hope all of you that plan on raiding have a great time and if you are participating in the race, I wish you all the best (don’t forget to have fun with it and take a little time to chill or get a snack/water if needed, sometimes this can be a big help)! 🏆🥇
