I haven’t played Destiny (or blogged about it) in ages so I’ve started replaying missions to remind myself of the story. I’ve really enjoyed immersing myself in that world again.
The campaign against the Fallen continues. They continue to scavenge over Old Russia but this time they’re looking for something specific.
Along the Forgotten Shore the Fallen have set up signal amplifiers. After driving back the Devils guarding them my Ghost scans them. I hear Russian dialogue as the signal is decoded.
The signal leads to the Skywatch where the Fallen have set up a data tap. Waves of Fallen come to defend it but I drive them back and destroy it.
After analysing the data the Fallen’s true goal is revealed. Rasputin, a Warmind AI, has somehow survived the Collapse and us protecting something in Old Russia. I pass the news back to the Tower.
This was a fun mission. I liked seeing Fallen tech in use. It’s a bit strange playing as I know that the Warmind stuff only really pays off in Destiny 2
I’ve already talked about the Fallen tech like the signal amplifiers and data tap but this mission also introduced a few new Fallen elements.
The House of Kings
The House of Kings are rarely seen but are believed to be one of the strongest houses, acting with brutality towards humans and other Fallen houses alike.
The House of Kings were running the data tap but interestingly it was the House of Devils guarding the signal amplifiers, suggesting a temporary alliance between the houses as they tried to access the Warmind
Complex balls of machinery, Servitors process matter and energy in to the Ether that the Fallen need to survive. They are reminders of how great Fallen civilization once was but now they depend on them to survive and regard them with a revert which resembles worship
Servitors maintain Fallen communication networks, likely through their neural interfaces. They are formidable in combat, emitting powerful blasts from their centre ‘eye’. Servitors are linked to a larger Prime Servitor who is key to the leadership of their House
That’s it for the Warmind. I’m getting into Destiny again so expect more posts soon
