Destiny: The Taken King Crucible Weekly Questline Guide

Destiny: The Collection

Everything you need to know about the long crucible questline offered by Lord Shaxx in Destiny: The Taken King.

Here’s what Bungie says about the said crucible questline:

Nightfall was built as a ritual experience for groups of 3 players in PVE. In year-1, we didn’t have a good weekly ritual experience for PVP players. Once players have completed the PVP intro. chain on Lord Shaxx, they receive access to the Weekly PVP quests on Lord Shaxx and the PVP Quartermaster. Each week, Lord Shaxx has a bounty called ‘The True Meaning of War.’ Completing this bounty each week – which requires completing the PVP weeklies – grants players Nightfall tier rewards.
