So I finally got around to taking down both Skolas and Crota in Hard Mode. Now these two things were fun. It was more fun than anything that I’ve dune in a long time really.
We took Skolas down Saturday night. It took around 4 hours, but it was worth it. Bungie recently changed that particular fight so that there was no burn, so you had to play within the mechanics of the fight.
Can I say that teamwork is paramount?
We did Crota on hard last night and that was a blast really. We’re done that particular raid on normal a couple of times, but we were interested in trying to get elemental primary weapons. Success!
I got an Abyss Defiant (solar auto rifle) and a Fang of Ir Yut (arc scout rifle). My brother in law was lucky. Very lucky. Gjallerhorn dropped for him from Crota. To most, that is the gun of guns. For those who don’t know, it’s an exotic rocket launcher that his harder than pretty much everything. I may one day see my own.
I’m happy though. We got to do two things that we’ve wanted to do. We did get the new exotic bounty from Skolas also, so that’ll be something else to do.
Next up? Hard Mode Vault of Glass!
