Apart from the new campaign available to Guardians in Destiny 2‘s recent expansion, the other major addition to the game was the latest raid lair, Spire of Stars. In true Guardian fashion, it only took a few days for a fireteam to complete it and claim World’s First status, but it was no easy task.
Bungie has confirmed that Clan Redeem, the team that also earned World’s First for Destiny‘s Wrath of the Machine raid and Destiny 2‘s Prestige Leviathan raid, was the first official fireteam to conquer Spire of Stars. As seen in the tweet below, the developer revealed it took the clan a little under seven hours to complete the raid lair, with 11,864 enemy kills and 598 deaths.
Total Kills: 11,864

Clan Redeem streamed its successful run-through of the raid lair, which you can see in its entirety below. However, since the video is almost seven hours long, Guardians can either watch the full stream or read on to find out the basics of what to expect from Spire of Stars.
As previously believed, the enemy within Spire of Stars has been revealed to be the Red Legion, with Val Ca’our as the final boss. Similar to the Calus fight in Leviathan, fireteams aren’t able to simply defeat the powerful enemy without mastering a few puzzles first. Essentially, Guardians are required to pass around orbs in a form of hot potato, which then activates a portal that hurdles a player outside of the raid lair’s location to destroy two ships. Once the ships are destroyed, Guardians can then activate energy orbs to be thrown at a broken Calus robot. Once the robot is down, fireteams have a short window to unload damage on Val Ca’our.
Of course, many other tasks need to be completed between those main objectives and reaching Val Ca’our’s room. Since the steps are now available to study through Clan Redeem’s video, though, it shouldn’t take too long for another fireteam to complete the raid lair in a shorter amount of time.
It’s clear through the fireteam’s video that Guardians will need as many helpful pieces of gear they can get, including Sleeper Simulant, the returning Exotic from Destiny. Sadly, one of the objectives tied to the quest for the Exotic has been difficult for many Guardians to complete due to a glitch. While there are workarounds to bypass the bug, Bungie has confirmed they are working on a permanent fix that will arrive sometime down the line.
Destiny 2 is available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
