NEWS & UPDATES

News & Updates

Update 7.2.0.5 brought a few changes to Crota’s End raid.

Crota’s End loot pool has been modified to have a more balanced distribution of armor pieces. 

This change only affects armor. Weapon drops remain as before

Here is what armor now drops at each encounter:

  • First Encounter (Abyss): Helmet, Arms, Chest
  • Second Encounter (Bridge): Arms, Chest, Legs
  • Third Encounter (Ir Yut): Chest, Legs, Class Item
  • Final Encounter (Crota): Helmet, Legs, Class Item
  • Eidolon’s Ally can now be reacquired from Collections with the correct purchase requirements. 
  • Fixed the Spoils of Conquest Triumph to only require the player to find two hidden chests.
    • There was never a third chest to find.

 CROTA"S END RAID IS CURRENTLY THE PINNACLE RAID (PINNACLE GEAR DROPS FROM EACH ENCOUNTER).


Raid Chests & Deepsight Loot

Secret Chest #1

The first secret hidden chest in Crota’s End raid is located in The Stills.

After dropping into the pit, follow the left wall and look for a lit up door (once you find the correct door you will see the chest inside). Please note, the door may change if the activity is re-launched.

To get the first secret chest solo, grab a checkpoint (or you will need at least one other teammate to help build the bridge at the beginning of raid).

Secret Chest #2

The second chest is located after the bridge encounter and before entering the Ir Yut encounter. To get this chest one fireteam member must make it into the room at the end of the hallway before door closes (defeat shrikers to make this process more manageable).

Deepsight Loot

Each week, one Deepsight Resonance (red bordered) weapon may be purchased from the Sword raid vendor for 20 Spoils of Conquest (per account).

NOTE: Deepsight Resonance weapons can drop in place of raid weapons from encounter chests and secret chests.

Deepsight Puzzle Chest

Earn a guaranteed Deepsight Resonance (red bordered) weapon weekly by completing the Deepsight Puzzle (per account).

Lore

Is your Light bright enough to stand in full gaze of the Hive’s abyss?

Arise for Crota, Son of Oryx, the Hope-Eater! He who has seized the Sky lair above Ceres, which peers into other planes, now vassal to the might of the Worldbreaker! Within these keyholes our brood communes with unheard voices. They who whisper that the curse of our Thralls is a blessing granted by the Deep. Now, in honor of the God-Knight, we fashion these gluttonous whispers into death. His Hellmouth becomes home to the profane: the corpse of the Sky, reborn in the abyss.
— Enkaar, the Anointed

Exotic Catalyst Steps

To acquire the Exotic Catalyst for the Necrochasm, complete both timed trials in Crota’s End raid, and ensure that one player has the Necrochasm equipped while standing on a plate. Players without the Necrochasm won’t receive the Catalyst.

Timed Trial #1

Time limit: 1 minute, 30 seconds

  • Find and activate the glowing plate located after the Bridge encounter. Once activate it will say “Crota’s Minions appear”.
    • Plate location: When looking at the stairs that go to the next encounter, go to the far upper right, you should see a glowy plate.
    • Make sure at least one fireteam member has the Necrochasm equipped when activating the plate, or it will not work.
  • Take out all Swordbearers and many enemies (swords can be dropped and picked back up). If you beat all the enemies in time, you’ll see a message saying “Crota’s minions are defeated.”

Time Trial #2

Time limit: 1 minute, 30 seconds

  • Find and activate the second glowing plate, located after completing the Ir Yut, Deathsinger encounter.
    • This plate is located in the room on the bottom right, below where Hive Boomer Knights spawn.
  • Repeat the process of defeating all enemies within the time allowed.
    • Heads up: This Timed Trial is much tougher. There are three Swordbearers (left, right, middle) and a significant amount of powerful Wizards and Gatekeepers.
  • Once you see the message saying “Crota’s minions are defeated” the Catalyst for Necrochasm will drop.

How to Unlock the Exotic Catalyst

  • Collect 20 Essence of the Oversoul (this is earned by completing encounters in Crota’s End raid).
