Oryx, The Taken King
Some scholars say that it was the vile “children” of Oryx that first crawled from the ashes, post-Collapse. His brood grew quietly, but quickly enough, spawning armies of Hive loyal to their King deep within the caverns and shadows of our worlds. Among them was Crota, the god-Knight whose offspring poisoned our Moon.
Crota and his army would have infected the Earth were it not for the efforts of Eris Morn, and the Guardians who heeded her warnings. Now, Crota is dead – body and soul extinguished by your hand.
Oryx, armed with a dark power beyond anything we’ve yet to face, is coming to claim his revenge.
Oryx wields the ability to control a twisted army of vile corruptions known as the Taken. These new enemies have been wholly consumed possessed by the Darkness, bodies and mind twisted into service of their King. Now, they are bent to a singular purpose – our eradication.
The Dreadnaught’s massive, impenetrable hull is feared to house a dark labyrinthine lair – pathways to ancient Hive who have pledged their loyalty to Oryx and use their inscrutable Shrines to empower and protect their King. You will be the first to venture within. You will be the first to face them.
New Subclass: Sunbreaker
Incendiary siege engines of war, Sunbreaker Titans hammer and shatter their enemy’s ranks from afar, raining cleansing fire down upon fortified defensive positions.
New Subclass: Stormcaller
Stormcallers directly manipulate Arc energy, focusing body and mind to channel and chain the lightning. Their enemies are given fair warning— flee from battle, or face the storm.
New subclass: Nightstalker
All Hunters master the frontier, but none claim territory quite like a Nightstalker. Shadowshot binding may seem more merciful than gun or blade… until the feeding frenzy begins.
