Destiny 2: Forsaken’s Last Wish is finally over, 19 hours after launch

Clan Redeem claims another victory in the world first raid

Ryan Gilliam (he/him) has worked at Polygon for nearly seven years. He primarily spends his time writing guides for massively popular games like Diablo 4 & Destiny 2.

Destiny 2: Forsaken’s Last Wish raid finally released for all players at 1 p.m. EDT on Friday, Sept. 14, but the raid’s final boss remained undefeated until early the next morning, on Sept. 15. After nearly 19 hours of constant play, the players of Clan Redeem claimed victory over the Last Wish, and unleashed hell upon the Dreaming City location.

Bungie confirmed via Twitter that players Modern, Sweatcicle, Ehroar, Indica, FleshCrunch, and Gladd were the first to complete the Last Wish. The raid itself is extremely difficult, consisting of five different encounters and a far higher recommended power level than most players have access to.

Last Wish took Redeem 18 hours and 48 minutes to beat, breaking the record for longest undefeated Destiny raid by a full four hours.

Interestingly, the conquering of the Last Wish raid has launched a wave of new content for Destiny 2: Forsaken. A new Strike called “The Corrupted” has shown up in the Dreaming City, which has made new missions available on the map. It remains to be seen what all has been affected by this raid first world completion, but players will surely discover more the mysterious cities secrets over the weekend.
