Destiny 2‘s Forsaken raid, Last Wish, has officially been completed, netting a returning World’s First team some exclusive gear. The rest of the community won’t be left empty-handed, though, as several new features were unlocked after the raid was conquered.

The now five-time World’s First champions, Clan Redeem, were the first to conquer the latest DLC’s raid. Of course, taking the crown wasn’t an easy task. In a record for the longest it has taken a fireteam to complete a new raid, it took Clan Redeem 18 hours and 48 minutes to finish after the activity went live on Friday, September 14th at 1 p.m. PT. Not long after, Bungie confirmed the fireteam’s World’s First status in a congratulatory tweet.

The tweet also showed off the exclusive champion’s belt that each member of the team will receive. The other goodies they’ll receive include an exclusive emblem, a ticket to order a custom raid jacket, and the Exotic weapon One Thousand Voices. Players that eventually complete Last Wish will also have a shot at the Exotic fusion rifle, but it won’t be a guaranteed drop like it was for Clan Redeem’s fireteam.

Apart from the typical hurdles fireteams have to overcome to complete a brand-new raid, such as understanding the puzzle mechanics, it seems Last Wish took exceptionally long to complete due to the high Power level requirement. Currently, Guardians need a minimum Power level of 550 to attempt the activity, which takes a good amount of grinding side quests and PvP to reach. However, the members of Redeem were running at 580, and it still was a challenge, which undoubtedly makes this the most challenging raid yet.

Interestingly, the amazing efforts of the fireteam had a ripple effect on the entire game. Shortly after being crowned the champions, Bungie tweeted that the death of the raid’s final boss, Riven, unleashed “one last curse” on Destiny 2.

While what that means narratively is still a mystery, a few new activities popped up in the shooter. According to a thread on the Destiny subreddit, a new Strike called The Corrupted has been unveiled, as well as Cathedral of Scars, a new Gambit map. More areas of corruption have also been appearing throughout The Dreaming City, so it seems Guardians still have more to anticipate from Forsaken.

Destiny 2 is available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
