In the tradition of many Destiny fanatics, the boss of the game’s newest raid has been taken down by a solo player.>
YouTuber ScaRdrow was the first to accomplish the daunting task of taking down Askis, the boss of the Wrath of the Machine raid, all alone. Sans Fireteam, it took ScaRdrow a grueling 18 minutes to take down their SIVA-empowered opponent.
"This challenge was by far the hardest thing I have ever attempted in Destiny," read ScaRdrow's reddit post. While ScaRdrow's entire spec and loadout can be spotted on Reddit, highlights include the Sunsinger build with Fireborn (duh), and the pairing of the Radegast artifact with a level 399 Raze-Lighter sword. While the Radegast allows Guardians to reflect back nearly any attack on their enemies, ScaRdrow primarily used the artifact for extra sword charges. With 305 points into strength and the Exotic Claws of Ahamkara gauntlets, they were also able to rapidly use Flameshield to mitigate damage.
