For some unknown reason, Bungie decided to throw all Grandmaster Ordeal Nightfalls in rotation, making the Conqueror title/seal achievable. In order to attempt these incredibly difficult activities, you need to be at least Power Level 1025. However, because of “Content Mode” being active, a Power Level above 1025 does not provide any kind sort of incentives. In this guide, we will walk you through everything you need to know about completing Tree of Probabilities Grandmaster Nightfall Ordeal in Destiny 2 Season of the Worthy.
Destiny 2 Tree of Probabilities Grandmaster Nightfall Ordeal
It goes without saying but Tree of Probabilities is arguably the hardest among all the GM Ordeals in the game. But first, let us talk about things you will run into:
|Champions||Overload and Barrier|
|Elemental Shields||Arc and Void|
While you will not find any Unstoppable Champions in this Ordeal, do note that both Overload and Barriers regenerate HP very quickly so you will need to constantly disrupt them to prevent them from doing so. You will also need to deal with Void shields on Cabal and Arc shields on Harpies, therefore, try to prepare accordingly. Let us talk about fireteam compositions:
- 2x Ward of Dawn with Helm of Saint-14, 1x Well of Riddance with Phoenix Protocol
- 1x bottom-tree Nightstalker with Sixth Coyote and 100 Mobility, 1x Well of Riddance with Phoenix Protocol, 1x Ward of Dawn with Helm of Saint-14
Coming to weapons and mods, there are a few choices at your disposal but some things work better than the others:
|Kinetic Weapons||Austringer, Spare Rations, Breachlight, Dire Promise, Mountaintop, Izanagi’s Burden|
|Energy Weapons||Eriana’s Vow, Recluse, Kindled Orchid, Divinity|
|Power Weapons||Temporal Clause, 21% Delirium, Wendigo GL3, Anarchy, Hammerhead, Bane of Sorrow, Night Terror, Sybil Z|
|Weapon Mods||Anti-Barrier Rounds, Overload Rounds, Minor Spec, Boss Spec, Major Spec, Disruption Blade|
|Armor Mods||Boss Resist, Minor Resist, Major Resist, Resilience/Recovery Mods, Rage of the Warmind, Celluar Suppression, Global Reach, Passive Guard|
Do note that it is totally fine if you do not own Warmind mods. We did our entire run without any but it goes without saying that having the mods help a lot. To give you a better understanding, this is what we ran:
- Well of Riddance with Phoenix Protocol: Dire Promise with Overload Rounds, Eriana’s Vow, Eternity’s Edge with Disruption Blade
- Ward of Dawn Titan with Helm of Saint-14: Mountaintop, Kindled Orchid with Overload Rounds, Night Terror with Disruption Blade
- Ward of Dawn Titan with Helm of Saint-14: Spare Rations with Overload Rounds, Eriana’s Vow, Night Terror with Disruption Blade
Tips and Strategies
First of all, do note that you can skip the entire Infinite Forest if you have a Hunter with 100 Mobility and Sixth Coyote. If you do not, then try to take things slowly. After you arrive in the first open area with 2 Barrier Champions, try to take all adds out from the top and then jump down. A little ahead, try to take out the Barrier Champion up top and then jump down.
From there on, it should be a smooth sail to the final boss. Remember to let the Wanted Enemy escape before you push forward. Do not jump directly into the boss’s room. Remember that defeating the last enemy in the boss room will spawn the boss.
As soon as you see the boss stomp the Minotaur, place a Ward of Dawn on top of the boss and start swinging with your swords. Remember to only use the Light Attacks to conserve ammo. If you do not miss your swipes, you should have the boss at about 25% HP before he moves into the next room.
After the boss moves away, move a little back and place the second Ward of Dawn or Well of Riddance if necessary and let the Overload Champion push you. He will most likely get into your Ward of Dawn – this is your chance to disrupt him with swords and kill him.
Tip: Killing the Overload Champions in an area immediately opens up the next room.
From there, kill the Harpies and get rid of Barrier Champions before going into the next room. I would also recommend waiting for your Supers to recharge before going into the next room. After arriving in the next room, immediately place a Ward of Dawn at the upper section of the room where the Overload Champion spawns. Immediately kill it and head outside to wait for your Supers again.
In the final room, place the second Ward of Dawn in the center of the room (upper section) and let the boss charge you. As soon as he gets into your Ward of Dawn, start swiping and claim your Conqueror title.
