Not 24 hours after a team of Guardians set a world record for taking down the Templar in Destiny’s Vault of Glass raid, another team has set a new record of only 15 seconds. The lightning fast completing took incredible teamwork and strategy, and can be seen from a couple points of view via the Reddit post showing the record.
In the Reddit post, a Destiny gamer going by Sweatcicle describes the process the group took to set the record. The setup requires exact strategies to complete, and if the team has to wipe, they have at least 10 to 15 minutes worth of setup to prepare the next attempt. Sweatcicle describes the experience:
“Other than having to wait about 10-15 min per wipe, this was a very fun challenge to try and accomplish. The reason it takes so long to reset is because our two titans had to generate enough orbs so that our 4 nighthawks could each shoot at least two of them and so that our relic holder would have his super instantly to take down the shield.”
Sweatcicle also explains how gamers can get the relic into the right spot to make everything come together. The Redditor provides these instructions:
“If you were wondering how we were able to push the relic up top without picking it up all you have to do is carefully push one of the little boxes into the relic, causing it to move. It is a very tedious process to get the box and the relic to cooperate sometimes.”
As the above video shows, when everything comes together, it’s an impressive display of teamwork by the Destiny Guardians. It certainly seems like chaos as the team works together to take down the Templar, but there’s no denying the beauty of it. Naturally, there will be many Destiny players who see this and take it as a challenge to complete it faster. It’ll be interesting to see if this record is broken anytime soon. Next it’s on to beating the Aethoen world record.
As for the rest of the Destiny community, there are still some impressive challenges to experience with the game’s Age of Triumph event, which is currently ongoing. With the unique armor sets to acquire, there’s still plenty to do in the three-year-old game.
With Destiny 2 set to release this September, it’ll be interesting to see how many more Destiny records are broken or set as gamers prepare for the highly-anticipated sequel.
Destiny was originally released in 2014. Destiny 2 is set to release September 8, 2017 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
