Destiny: The Taken King How to Defeat Tier 3 Court of Oryx Balwur Guide

This week's Tier 3 Court of Oryx boss is Balwur, a red Wizard/itch with a pretty simple mechanic once you know what's going on - figured I'd write a quick guide for anyone struggling.

1. When you begin the fight, the ground is toxic so you need to work your way underneath the platform where you'll find a 'safe spot'.

1. When you begin the fight, the ground is toxic so you need to work your way underneath the platform where you'll find a 'safe spot'.

2. From there, you'll see some Ultra Acolytes spawn - 'Acolyte of Balwur' - killing these will create additional 'safe spots' and you can then stand in these to deal damage to the boss.

3. It seems, from our 4 completions thus far, that if you take out all the Acolytes it slows the spawns of the regular ads, which in turn gives you more time to focus on the boss.

4. Once you have them under control, Balwur has a Kinetic shield. Take it down, nuke it, then when the 'safe spots' disappear, return to the starting location under the bosses platform and repeat the process.

That's all there is to it. So it's really simple once you get it down, and definitely doable with 3.
