Destiny Rise of Iron: How to Complete an Encounter in the Archon’s Forge

Archon’s Forge – Destiny: Rise of Iron

The Archon’s Forge is pretty much Destiny: Rise of Iron’s very own Court of Oryx. In here you will face powerful Splicers that have been “perfected” with the power of the SIVA virus. In exchange, you will have the opportunity to earn amazing rewards.

To get to this challenge, head to the Archon’s Keep and follow the same route as if you were heading to Site 6. Starting the Archon’s Forge challenge is very similar to that of Court of Oryx. You must provide a SIVA offering to the computer that you come across as soon as you enter the area. You can obtain these offerings randomly by defeating powerful enemies scattered around the Plaguelands or from completing Archon’s Forge challenges.

Once you input your offering the challenge will begin. There are two phases. The first is to clear a few waves of enemies as you wait for the actual boss to show up. You have five minutes to do so, so make sure to get right to it. When they’re all gone you will then have a set time limit to kill the boss. If you defeat the boss in the time limit you’ll earn a reward in the form of powerful gear, usually of higher Light than what you have equipped.

One thing to note is that if you die, it’s best to let your friends revive you rather than respawning. This is because the top level is locked once the action begins and you’ll have to use a Splicer Key to get back in. If you need some help surviving, check out our tips.

Safe travels, Guardian. For more Destiny: Rise of Iron help, check out our wiki for guides and tips!
