Destiny 2: The Witch Queen adds a new location for players to explore: Savathun’s Throne World. And like all new locations in Destiny 2, the Throne World comes with a new public event.
In Destiny 2, Guardians can make public events Heroic by completing a secret objective, offering more rewards — and in the Throne World’s case, planetary reputation with Fynch.
Here’s how to turn the new Resonant Destruction public event heroic while you ferry the Resonant Splinter.
How to beat Resonant Destruction
The Resonant Destruction public event is the simplest one we’ve gotten in years. When the event starts, you’ll need to escort a Pyramid-looking surfboard through a zone in the Throne World. As long as you stand next to (or on) it, it’ll move forward.
Occasionally, the Scorn enemies will stop you at a checkpoint, and you’ll need to kill a bunch of them and destroy some very obvious crystals before moving on. Once you escort it from one side of the zone to the other — it’s on a fixed path — you’ll complete the public event and earn some rewards and reputation.
How to turn the Resonant Destruction event Heroic
Befitting the already simple nature of this public event, turning Resonant Destruction into its Heroic mode is almost as easy.
While you’re escorting the Resonant Splinter (the Pyramid surfboard), some Scorn enemies will drop a ball on the ground, which is called a Resonant Charge. If you pick up the Resonant Charge, you can throw it with the aim button.
These bombs do lots of damage to enemies, but resist the urge to throw it at them. Instead, get close to the Resonant Splinter, ensuring you won’t miss, and throw the bomb at it instead. You’ll know you’ve hit the Resonant Splinter when your surfboard flashes with orange light.
While we’re not exactly sure how many Resonant Charges you need to hit the Resonant Splinter with, it’s best to use all of them on your escort object. If you’ve hit the magic threshold before the Resonant Splinter reaches the end of its path, the mission will turn Heroic and a few additional bosses will spawn in.
The final fight in this public event is extremely easy, and there are no special mechanics involved. Just kill the bonus Scorn bosses and enjoy that sweet new loot.
