Once they have collected Hefnd Bones and Dark Ether Tincture, Guardians can unlock an exotic sidearm known as the Buried Bloodline with its Catalyst weapon in Warlord’s Ruin dungeon. This weapon features its own special perk for tracking bolts to leech health from enemies while its Catalyst can weaken enemies on hit.
Void builds can benefit greatly from this weapon in both PvE and PvP play, requiring players to complete three puzzles within a dungeon in order to unlock it.
In the Shadow of the Mountain Quest
Guardians can unlock the Buried Bloodline Exotic Sidearm and its Catalyst by completing multiple runs through Warlord’s Ruin, the new dungeon introduced with Season of the Wish. While its components can be obtained at any time, its catalyst can only be unlocked once they have cleared and defeated its secret boss; fortunately this can be quickly accomplished by solving various puzzles present within this dungeon.
Warlord’s Ruin offers two puzzles to its visitors. One lies outside its prison maze where players navigate, where there is a Taken Blight which can be shot with Buried Bloodline to grant your fireteam an Imminent Wish buff and create darkness totems that need to be lit in order to activate and trigger a device which unlocks its catalyst.
Once players have navigated through the prison maze and defeated its second boss encounter in the dungeon, another puzzle awaits them upon climbing back up to where players first saw Taken Blight floating freely atop a platform: look right of ruins near platform to find Hefnd Bone underneath some snow – this will open the final steps needed for Catalyst completion.
Warlord’s Ruin offers three puzzles to be solved and three Totems that need reading correctly before players can leave Warlord’s Ruin prison and reach an outside gate, where Taken Blight can be shot with Buried Bloodline to create an Imminent Wish buff and bring forth darkness totems that need lighting in a specific sequence in order to activate your weapon’s Catalyst.
Buried Bloodline’s powerful Void weaponry makes it ideal for Titan, Hunter and Warlock classes in both PvE and PvP environments, providing Titan with Hungering Quarrel double tracking bolts fired and Violent Reanimation providing Devour with every precision final blow delivered – though its high requirements could put off some players from adopting it.
Buried Bloodline is an Exotic sidearm with an extremely effective Void build for PvE and PvP combat, but when equipped with its Catalyst it becomes even more effective, with Hungering Quarel perk double tracking bolts fired and leeching health on any kill. Guardians can earn this weapon’s Catalyst through Warlord’s Ruin or increase their chances by completing specific Triumphs associated with Hefnd’s Revenge Triumphs.
In order to unlock Buried Bloodline’s Catalyst, players must solve three small puzzles found throughout the dungeon. The first involves shooting Taken Blight with Buried Bloodline to activate devices around the room corresponding to darkness totems; players then must light each of these totems until its Catalyst finally appears.
The second puzzle involves shooting a giant floating Taken Blight that appears in a platforming section of the dungeon with Buried Bloodline; doing so will activate an Imminent Wish buff and generate two totems that correspond; activating each totem sequentially will bring up its respective Catalyst gun component; finally there is also a final puzzle located within a spire where players must shoot one with Buried Bloodline before attacking its Catalyst gun component to resolve.
Once Bloodline members stand on torches that illuminate in an ordered sequence, this will trigger a Direct Physical Attack phase against Primeval Thressia that must be defeated before Catalyst reappears and can be utilized again.
Players can obtain the Buried Bloodline Exotic and its Catalyst by completing In the Shadow of the Mountain quest and running Warlord’s Ruin Dungeon several times weekly until you defeat its secret boss and receive its final chest. While this requires considerable time and effort, it will make for an amazing sidearm! However, be prepared for multiple grinds through Warlord’s Ruin as Destiny 2 dungeon exotics cannot be farmed infinitely like their regular counterparts.
Infiltrating the Prison
Buried Bloodline is an Exotic sidearm for Guardians that functions like an efficient hand crossbow. The weapon’s Hungering Quarrel perk fires tracking bolts that leech health from kills, while Catalyst allows any accurate final blow to cause overflow in its magazine and enable additional shots from firing it. With both perk options at their disposal, Buried Bloodline makes an effective weapon in both PvE and PvP modes of play, especially for Void builds that leverage Void builds.
Unlocking the Buried Bloodline Exotic and Catalyst requires solving a series of puzzles located within Warlord’s Ruin. For instance, one such puzzle involves firing Taken Blight shots to activate an Imminent Wish buff that releases torches around the room – players must then match these torches against floating rocks or pillars to activate them – once activated left to right they will trigger a device and unlock its Catalyst.
The next challenge requires players to remove environmental corruption in a jump room full of parkour, clearing it away to reveal a chasm where the final Taken Blight can be found. Shooting it with Buried Bloodline activates a buff that spawns torches around an open room containing several doorways; matching up these torches on floating rocks or pillars activates them and unlocks the device centrally that unlocks Buried Bloodline Catalyst.
Once they’ve solved the final puzzle, players will need to defeat Primeval Thressia of the Servitor faction to unlock her weapon and its Catalyst. Together they make for an effective Void weapon in both PvE and PvP, though there may be better Special or Exotic weapons suitable for AoE add-clearing or single target boss damage respectively.
Players should keep in mind that this dungeon can only be completed once per week due to its rotating nature. But the Buried Bloodline Exotic makes the effort worthwhile as its powerful combination of perks can benefit any Void build. Alternatively, those without enough Ahamkara Bones to unlock it can purchase the weapon and Catalyst through Crucible Clock for 5 Platinum.
Defeating Primeval Thressia
Buried Bloodline, the latest Exotic sidearm introduced into Dungeon and Raid Exotic Weapons, offers some powerful perks sure to make this weapon popular with PvE and PvP builds alike. But unlocking it requires an exclusive Catalyst which players can only obtain by completing Warlord’s Ruin Dungeon.
As with most Exotic weapons designed specifically for dungeons, Guardians can only gain access to the Buried Bloodline Exotic and its Catalyst after defeating its final boss. To do this, players must complete In the Shadow of the Mountain quest and reach Cairn Chamber checkpoint in the Cairn Chamber dungeon checkpoint in order to receive this unique item. Once in this area, interact with a floating Taken orb near the spiral staircase location to be transported into another world with a secret boss fight! Primeval Thressia from the Servitor faction provides many of the same mechanics found elsewhere in this dungeon, such as an invulnerability phase which must be broken by activating certain devices within her room. Once done so, three torches will light up, prompting players to stand on appropriate Darkness Totems according to these lights in order to defeat Thressia and claim her Catalyst.
The Buried Bloodline Catalyst for Destiny 2 enhances this weapon by increasing its precise 52 precision damage at range to 50 meters and increasing magazine capacity from two rounds to four. This upgrade should make this weapon even more useful in PvE and PvP play, particularly among players using Void build setups that take full advantage of this Catalyst’s benefits.
As with other exotics found in dungeon and raid exotics, this one cannot be harvested endlessly; Guardians may only complete Warlord’s Ruin once every week to unlock Buried Bloodline and its Catalyst sidearms if they wish to do so. Be patient though as this encampment will likely become the weekly featured one, so players should plan ahead if they want this powerful sidearm in Destiny 2 arsenal!
