To gain entry to this new dungeon, players will either need the Lightfall expansion and its annual pass or buy the Dungeon Key for 2,000 Silver. A loot table will show which gear, armor and weapons await them inside.
Farm the Dungeon Loot Any Time Players may farm its loot as often as desired, except for an Exotic weapon which drops on a specific roll.
1. Indebted Kindness
Players entering the castle will find three encounters that will provide them with some amazing items, including the Indebted Kindness exotic sidearm for PvE and PvP needs, as well as Ahamkara Bones that launch a quest that grants multiple lore entries and emblems.
Warlord?s Ruin has seen its first new weapon drop with the introduction of Indebted Kindness, featuring a rocket-assisted frame archetype using Special ammo. Indebted Kindness offers an extensive perk pool with new additions like Beacon Rounds trait as well as classics such as Voltshot. With high total damage output and optimal ranges suitable for both PvE and PvP builds alike, its high total damage and optimal ranges make sure it will have its place both PvE builds as well.
This new gun features the Jolt effect, which empowers its shots and increases damage over time. Furthermore, its Quick Launch and High-Velocity Rounds perks help maximize velocity for maximum effectiveness. Finally, its Indebted Kindness God roll can offer extra ammo through various perks including Lead From Gold and Voltshot.
It will be exciting to observe how this new weapon fits into the current meta. No doubt its distinctive stats and perks will attract some interest; however, we shall see how well it stands up against other high-end gear.
As they advance further into the dungeon, players will encounter various puzzles and bosses before their final fight with Locus of Wailing Grief, an unforgiving Taken Ogre requiring power levels that many players may not possess.
Notably, of the four weapons up for grabs in this dungeon none are general-use weapons such as snipers or hand cannons – an unsurprising factor considering that Destiny 2 places more value on rare and exotic weapons in its dungeons, making them both more challenging to complete and ultimately more rewarding in the end.
2. Dragoncult Sickle
Bungie introduced several activities for players to enjoy with the release of Destiny 2 Season of the Wish, such as Warlord?s Ruin Dungeon. Players hunt Ahamkara bones in an overrun castle full of Scorn. It also brings with it plenty of new loot such as an Indebted Kindness Sidearm offering both PvE and PvP benefits as well as Dragoncult Sickle’s unique casting system – plus plenty more!
As players approach Warlord?s Ruin’s second encounter, they will encounter an enormous Taken ogre known as Locus of Wailing Grief. Much like its first counterpart, this battle retains certain elements from previous ones such as depositing Solar Charges into braziers to initiate its damage phase and unveils some unique mechanics such as Biting Cold debuff that can be removed by landing near standards (flags on poles).
Additionally, the Ogre now sports two eyes that observe its surroundings from nearby pillars – players must avoid them at all costs! In addition, players will need to manage its movement as it teleports towards an exit door whenever it sees one open.
Once Locus reaches his final health bar, players will be transported to an arena where they can defeat it and loot its final chest once he has been vanquished. Players should keep an eye out for laser shots from Ogre as he may shoot lasers at them from time to time while in this area; keep a sharp watch over his movements while hiding when necessary to avoid harm from this boss!
As well as weapons and armor from the final encounter, players can also receive the Dark Age Warlord?s Ruin armor set. Its rugged winter aesthetic fits right in with the environment of their new dungeon environment. Additionally, this gear features several useful perks that can aid both PvE and PvP builds – Hungering Quarrel Intrinsic Trait increases tracking bolt damage when targeting downrange, while Buried Bloodlines Exotic Void Sidearm fires tracking bolts that drain health from enemies that land a successful final blow.
3. Arc Sidearm
Hefnd’s Vengeance is the final boss encounter in Warlord?s Ruin, featuring a Blighted Chimera that blends together some familiar mechanics with some brand new ones. Similar to previous bosses, players first need to render Hefnd vulnerable by dismantling Taken Eyes which appear throughout the battle (pillars and corners of arena). Once done, players will need to shoot it until its health reaches zero before cleansing its device by standing near it; this will teleport him onto an open platform and complete battle.
Hefnd’s Vengeance should not prove too mechanically taxing for Guardians who have previously completed the dungeon more than once, provided his health can be managed and players hide behind pillars to avoid its Biting Cold debuff. Players will have to be wary when engaging this boss as Hefnd can cast numerous ice spells that can injure players even through walls!
Hefnd’s Vengeance also gives players the chance to obtain an Exotic Void Sidearm called Buried Bloodline, with unique weapons firing Void Tracking Bolts which steal health from enemies and two Exotic Perks that make this weapon especially helpful for PvE gameplay such as Hungering Quarrel Intrinsic Trait which double-fires tracking bolts, and Violent Reanimation Trait which allows multiple final blows which grant Devour.
Naeem’s Lance, a legendary rifle from Season of the Wish, can also be found here in this encounter. This rifle boasts several useful PvE perks that make it especially suitable for combat situations – for instance Explosive Head and Successful Warm-up that deal high DPS while increasing precision damage with every shot taken.
Players can gain the Dark Age armor set from this encounter, offering them rugged winter aesthetic that makes Warlord?s Ruin an enjoyable place. Running it on Master difficulty also unlocks legendary scout sword and Artifice version of this armor set as rewards; giving Guardians plenty of reasons to continue through until all possible rewards have been collected.
4. Void Exotic
Season of the Wish gave Guardians access to Warlord?s Ruin, an intricate snowy dungeon dating back to the Dark Age in search of an ancient foe. Although more challenging than normal dungeons, Warlord?s Ruin still offers great rewards such as armor with retro aesthetics as well as unique bonuses.
One of the more intriguing weapons found within Dungeons is the Indebted Kindness Sidearm. As the first of a new Sidearm archetype that uses Special ammo and deals significant damage, as well as offering special perks that make it attractive for PvP, this weapon makes an impressionful first impression for many players who enjoy this form of combat.
Players will discover numerous secret chests scattered throughout the dungeon that could contain some pretty decent gear, with any emitting blue mist being wary as it may be used as an ambush by Screebs to attack. As an extra precaution, they should instead prioritize any genuine secret chests they come across which are more likely to contain useful items.
After a brief introduction featuring a game of tag and some lanterns, players will reach Warlord?s Ruin’s second major encounter: Locus of Wailing Grief. This battle shares many similar mechanics with Rathil but adds several unique ones; such as depositing four Solar Charges into braziers to initiate damage phase and landing near standards (flags on poles) to bypass his Biting Cold debuff debuff.
Once the encounters have been conquered, players can reclaim their rewards by heading up the stairs and onto the snowy summit, where they can complete a lore entry for the dungeon and start farming for legendary and Exotic weapons – using this list of likely drops as a guide when running through it.
