EDIT: With the level cap raised to 40, the implementation of the light level system and the nerf of the Gjallahorn you may now disregard whatever is listed below and in the guide when it comes to gear/level requirements. [0.Introduction]
Flawless raider is arguably the toughest achievement in Destiny. Your own skill is not the only factor that might prevent you from earning this achievement, the quality of your companions and whether or not they are capable of coordinating as a team are equally important.
After a lot of trial and error, tweaking the strategies and doing attempts with fireteams consisting of different individual participants i have unlocked this achievement and i have decided to share our strategy in detail with you. I am hoping this guide will be able to aid at least some among you in tackling this test of teamwork. We were able to do it on both Crota and Vault of Glass.
I have decided to write guides for both the Vault of Glass and for Crota's end. ( See detailed guides for both raides below)
This guide is no guarantee for success. It's no fool proof plan that cannot go wrong ; it is merely a strategy that worked for my team and lets us run these raids with the least amount of casualties. The guides may not always provide the fastest strategy or even what some could argue to be the 'best' strategy. These strategies try to cover the 'safest' strategies for the average group of destiny players. These guides shy away from trick jumps, complicated glitches and anything that is just not feasible with your average fireteam. If you find yourself blessed with an extremely gifted group of players then by all means; do your thing but if you are like me and you are what i would describe an 'average' player who has to lead other 'average' players through the raid without casualties then this is the way to go.
Moving on...1. Preparation
-Ensure that everybody in your team has a fresh set of batteries in their controller.
-You have to finish this session with the 6 people that started the raid. People are not allowed to rejoin if they are being disconnected. If a person disconnects during the last phase of the raid it would be a waste to restart because the final sections of the raids are easily done with only 5 people. At that point you want to ensure that none of your random friends joins you so make sure that your fireteam is closed before you start.
This is how you do that :
Xbox One VAULT OF GLASS
1.From the roster section, select the icon at the top of your Fireteam roster. This will take you to Xbox Home.
3.Select My profile.
4.On the right under JOIN IN, select Destiny.
5.Set the third option to Require invites and not Set to joinable.
I will probably be tweaking this guide some more over the next few weeks but in the meanwhile i am willing to answer any questions regarding this guide. Just ask them in the comments below and i will get to them as soon as possible. GOOD LUCK
