A Destiny Rise Of Iron PSA: Go Climb The Mountain

One of my favourite new things in Destiny, a video game filled with horrible jumping puzzles, is a horrible jumping puzzle. Specifically: climbing a bigass mountain.

The new social space in Rise of Iron, which came out yesterday, gives you access to a snowy mountain range called Felwinter's Peak. The new social space, Iron Temple, is a solemn fortress in the middle of this mountain range. It's full of wolves, statues, and big torches. And then there's the jumping puzzle.

You can — and should — go through a series of frustrating jumps to get to the very top of Felwinter's Peak, where you'll get a Dormant SIVA Cluster (we don't really know what these do yet) as well as the satisfaction of knowing you climbed the goddamn mountain. It may take you an hour or two, especially if you're a Warlock (come on Bungie), but it's worth it just to see the view.

Or you could spoil yourself and just watch this video:

    thats strangely hypnotic to watch but something tells me I think I will wait until I know what I need that piece is for before adding it to my busy gaming schedule. heh.

      If its the same as Taken King's calcified fragments it'll unlock the exotic item associated with the raid and making said raid easier.

      Its for the Gjallorhorn quest line you need 5 of em.

        damn you had to say that, heh, back to the mountain I go...

          Well you don't have to collect that specific one. There are 15 in the game.

    What does being a Warlock have to do with this? If you could double jump that would be one thing, but in my experience it's always been Hunters who struggle with jumping puzzles.

      Unless they have bones of Eao of course :)

      OMG those things were life savers for that particular ship half way through the goddamn ship puzzle

    Warlock? Warlocks can jump! Can't remember the combo though as before last weekend I hadn't played since April and I've forgotten lots... void subclass with a particular set of options? Calling @os42 ... :)

    Dormant SIVA Cluster (we don’t really know what these do yet)

    Collect 15 to complete a task in your RoI book.

      ...and randomly turn up at Archon's Forge when it's full. :-o :-D That was fun.

    Datto's already done a video on getting 20 of the 30 clusters.

    Took me about 15-20 minutes last night to get to the top of the mountain. The key is to not rush the task. If you focus on your jumps and your positioning it's not too bad. As for double-jumps etc, you don't have them because this is a social space.
