    Keep in mind that not only do you kill Taniks twice, but it's cannon that Cayde-6 also has killed Taniks even before the start of D1.

    One thing to note if you go will 4 nuke deposit scanner isn’t exactly need as wherever he goes for the nuke drop is the area that you do not go to example: taniks floats to where you spawn and you get the nukes you go to boxes 3,4,5,6 and leave boxes 1,2 alone so in that case while doing 2 nukes is the norm right now I think going for 4 nukes might be better to do as you don’t need to go to only 2 boxes and instead you go to four boxes

    My blind team cleared on Nov 29th, and I, a Hunter main, discovered a use for NON-NIGHTHAWK bottom tree solar Hunter. If your team, as ours did, struggles with knocking off the nukes from Taniks, your Golden Gun should 2-shot remove the first one, and because of the escalating precision damage, 1-shot (or at least almost) the second. I was able to have my GG ready for the first nuke drop of each damage phase, and did this job concurrently with Suppressor role, since the time for them did not overlap. As teams grow in consistency and skill, this will likely become less valuable, but it sure helped me.

    ... really? They have him say "Tas hur? Tas kar!" in the final fight? That's... a bit weird, imo. He'd easily already know we can fight, considering how many times we've killed him plus having to fight through the rest of the raid to get there.

      Tractor "works", but you would be better off with a tether because it doesn't require one person to have literally no DPS. I'd recommend just getting divinity because it makes this fight so much easier.

    Congrats on another vid full of great info! FYI Revenue Ideas on growing your channel: Offer paid Services where you run 2 or 5 Guardians through various events while discussing combinations of mechanics. Idea is to give tips, recommend tactics & strategies / builds etc. Suggest initially focus on key activities such as Nightfall / Strikes / Power-leveling etc ? Could even be a ‘101‘ like "How to ride ya scooter" along wigth tricks and techniques for accelerated General gameplay… The idea is that you monetize “guided tours“ by selling directly to individuals OR making Content available through Patron on IRmys. You could also live-stream these Services to market & build Subscribers! Good luck Dude!!

    Tip for those with suppressor role - Witherhoard or Anarchy works amazing for this. Shoot Taniks once and if you're quick enough, you can run around to all 3 stun locations whilst he's tagged for a super quick stun.

    If no one has Divinity, was kind of DPs loadout should we be rocking for the final boss?

    • ApieceofWoods


      پیش ماه

      @jarrod agreed. It worked out for us because we all had machine gun ammo finder and scavenger mods on and deeper reserves. Once we got to the final stand we all switched to Outbreak quick and just melted him with nanites

    • jarrod


      پیش ماه

      @ApieceofWoods Xeno will work fairly well for DPS but you're at the mercy of RNG for heavy ammo drops. You don't get much heavy ammo at all with xeno.

      Divinity is kind of essential for this one. If you can't get someone on divinity then an anarchy/snipe combo will still do okay, but his head moves around a lot which will tank your DPS even if you're able to hit it.

    Just making a guess now: For challenge mode, it is called "Of All Trades" (that's not the guess, that's just a fact). My guess is that everyone will have to have every job once throughout the whole encounter, which works out because 6 phases = 6 players which have a different job each time.

    One thing extra to note Datto, in the final encounter shooting taniks for the third time with supressor is what triggers the deactivation, so if you want to be extra careful you can wait until operator has popped both bubbles to ensure no one dies/someone new has to take operator super quickly.

  86. MovieRacket


    پیش ماه

    Pro tip... I may have missed this in the video but make sure if you are suppressor to wait until both nuke orbs are ready to dunk before the final stun... Otherwise the operator may lose their buff and they can't free the detained people.

    Tip for suppressor. Tag him with an anarchy shot and then you can just run under each suppression orb without shooting him at each one. It’s especially helpful for orange where he is right over the middle one. Works in both fights.

    It is supressing Taniks which deactivates an augment in both phases (not just a while after nukes drop). This can be bad in the final encounter if Operator is disabled so wait for the suppression until after 2 detains. Also for boss DPS.. Mask of Bakris? Pretty sure it stacks with buffs - First in Last Out and Anarchy will be putting in some extra work. Who knows if it's worth over a Celestial though.
