Destiny 2 King’s Fall Raid: The Grass Is Always Greener (Totems) Challenge Guide

To complete the Grass is Always Greener challenge, players cannot collect the Brand of the Weaver or the Brand of the Unraveler twice in a row. This means instead of typically sticking to one side throughout the fight, implying that they will have to constantly swap from left to right to ensure they do not collect the same Brand twice. It’s pretty simple after a few practice runs to allow players to get their rhythms and rotations down.

However, for those looking to complete this on the Master difficulty to earn progress on the raid seal, it is a far different story. In the Master mode, enemies are now at 1,600 power level, which is a significant jump compared to the normal difficulty of 1,560 power. On top of that, there are now three Unstoppable Ogres spawning repeatedly throughout the fight. These changes require incredibly tight coordination, as even one death could cause the rest of the team to wipe.

The recommendation for the Master difficulty would be to use Exotic weapons such as Gjallarhorn and Xenophage, as they deal excellent burst damage. Burst damage will be significant throughout the fight, so players can swiftly deal with the constant waves of enemies and the Unstoppable Ogres. Titans and Warlocks will be the best classes to use here, as their healing and resistance capabilities will be essential to help players survive the onslaught. So long as the team can keep their coordination together and effectively deal with the Unstoppable Ogres, the only challenge remaining is to make sure nobody grabs the same Brand twice.

To end off, let’s break it down one more time in a more straightforward format:

  • Do not collect the same Brand twice. Switch back and forth from left to right to ensure this.
  • Three Unstoppable Ogres will spawn at 30%, 60%, and 90% completion. Use burst damage weapons to kill them ASAP.
  • Use healing and resistance abilities as much as possible to ensure survival. One death could cause a wipe, and you’ll have to restart.
  • Proceed with the back-and-forth antics until the Warpriest deems you worthy.

Master King’s Fall Rewards

The Master difficulty for King’s Fall grants two different types of rewards for players to hunt for. The first is high-stat roll armor pieces from completing each encounter throughout the raid. However, the stat in which the armor is focused changes weekly. For example, this current week has Recovery focused armor as rewards, which means players can expect to see high-stat Recovery-focused armor as part of their reward.

The second type of reward is the introduction of Adept weapons for King’s Fall called Harrowed Weapons. These particular guns will drop only by completing the weekly encounter challenge on Master difficulty. For example, if a player completes the Totems challenge, as discussed earlier, they will be guaranteed a Harrowed Weapon as part of their reward. However, a random Harrowed Weapon will drop, meaning there’s no indication of which gun they’ll get. Although, if they get the Harrowed Doom of Chelchis as their drop, for example, next week, after completing the Warpriest challenge, they’ll be guaranteed any one of the other Harrowed weapons. This continues until they eventually collect them all.

How To Get The King’s Fall Raid Title In Destiny 2

Kingslayer is the newest title to release in-game for a raid. Players will have to do numerous challenges throughout the raid to claim this fabled title. For example, completing all the encounter challenges like the one mentioned above on the Master mode. Each challenge is separated weekly, meaning players must wait four more weeks to complete the final challenge and claim the title.
