TAKE BACK the LIGHT

Sister of Shapes, Sword-Breaker, Witch Queen – which of my many names lives on your lips as you weave your story around me? Even as you tread carefully through my courtyard, among those who worship the Light I have gifted, would you deny me the virtue of this power?

Your answers are telling, Guardian. Ponder them and question those who promise you clarity in the face of all you see here. Listen as their voice wavers. And as you lift your new steel from the heart of your forge, ask yourself, “What force wields you?”

I await you, Guardian. Step into my Throne World and behold the truth.

COMBATANTS – THE LUCENT BROOD

Savathûn has gifted her soldiers with the powers of the Light. As the Knight you’ve struck down rises from the dead for the second time, a feeling of betrayal washes over you and you can’t help but wonder: When the Light offers no shelter – no solace – where will you turn?

CRAFTING

MEMORIES of STRENGTH

Amemory fills your mind. Unformed and foreign, it begins to take shape as your link with the Pyramid relic grows stronger. A tool. No. A weapon. A blade, both ancient and new, shimmers perfectly into focus – you can almost feel its weight in your hands. Craft it and it will carry you to victory.

– The Relic and the Glaive: A new weapon archetype begins its journey at the Relic. Once honed to perfection, master your Glaive to perform powerful melee combos, fire projectiles, and deploy a powerful energy shield.
– Craft Your Perfect Roll: Master the new crafting system and create custom weaponry with unique combinations of mods, shaders, and advanced stat pools. When fighting a god, leave nothing on the table.
– A Journey of Power: The road before you is adorned with Exotic and Legendary rewards. Travel it bravely and when the time comes, Savathûn will learn that Light alone does not define a Guardian’s true strength.

DESTINATIONS

PERFECT IMPERFECTION

A twisted wonderland of corruption and splendor, Savathûn’s Throne World plays host to a fragile balance of terrifying power. From the foundation of her glistening palace to the gnarled roots in the swamp, all that she hides can be found here. Seek the truth and learn that in this place, mystery makes its home in both the Darkness and the Light.

ACTIVITIES

A sprawling web of evidence lies before you. Shadows nip at your heels as you retreat into the Light, only to find the enemy waiting, bolstered by a power it does not deserve. Face the Witch Queen’s Lucent Brood and solve the riddle at the heart of her deceit.

– Conflict Eternal: A new six-player matchmade activity at the heart of the ongoing struggle for the Throne World. The balance must be maintained.
– New Raid: Among the swamps of Savathûn’s Throne World lies a sunken Pyramid. Alongside your fireteam, venture inward and confront the ancient danger imprisoned within…
