What is the root of nightmares in Destiny 2?
The Root of Nightmares is the latest raid event that started on March 10, 2023 at 9:00 AM PT / 12:00 PM ET. This is Bungie’s world-first Raid Race, and the most experienced and high-quality players will compete for first place on the leaderboard. The goal is to complete this raid as a team in two and a half hours.
How to defeat the root of nightmares in Destiny 2?
You must complete the event as four major encounters: Cataclysm, Sission, Macrocosm, and Nezarec. First, you must go through an introductory section for the Event, and then the disaster will take place. Here are the tips for each team.
This is the opening section of the raid and you need to go straight to the end and then turn left. Walk until you see a giant statue and don’t forget that there are a lot of enemies here. Once past the statue, head left down the corridor and follow the curved path to the first encounter.
In this phase you must shoot the orb that grants a buff called Field of Light. Then they have to go in the direction that the light sphere is pointing and unlock another light sphere.
Divide your team in two. Four people have to shoot at enemies, which grants you more time in the arena. Two people have to shoot light balls and unlock other light balls. Make sure you don’t grab Field of Light for two players at the same time, as this would lock the event. The timer is called the Sweeping Terror Debuff, and your team will be wiped out if you don’t complete it in time. Once you connect all the balls, you grant access to the next level. meeting
As the second phase of Destiny 2 Root of Nightmares Guide, you must complete Sission. It has two spears, Light Orbs and Darkness Spear. The Light Orbs works similarly to Cataclysm. Going into the Dark Spear will give you another buff called Flux of Darkness. However, it is operated with the same mechanics as a light field. The goal is to connect balls in a zig zag pattern.
Divide your team into two groups. One group must be on the dark side while the other group is on the light side. Two players must stay on the same side permanently and eliminate enemies. Some enemies can only be damaged with a light field. The other player (buff runner) jumps back and forth to two sides. One must be assigned to activate the orb of two players eliminating the enemies. Once the buff runner confirms the activation of the other ball, that player must grab the light field and activate the next orb. Repeat the process for all three tiers. Related:

This challenge requires you to line up the planets correctly (light planets on the right and dark planets on the left). There are four triangular platforms, two on each side. Each platform contains three planets and once they are completed it will glow showing that you have completed that platform.
Kill enemies at the beginning. Divide the group into three teams, two for each section. A group must eliminate the enemies. A group must move the light planets. A group must move the Dark Planets. Defeating Colossal grants you a buff called Planetary Insight. Upon completion, the planetary index will appear. Communicate with each partner and assign each planet. Then collect the planet and place it on the correct position of the platform. Eliminate enemies and prepare for the damage phase. The boss will come towards you and his shield will glow bright or dark. Stand on the light or dark plate according to his shield color. Once all the plates are used, the game progress will reset and you will have to do it again. Use DPS rocket launcher to damage the boss. Nezarec
This is the final phase of the Destiny 2 Root of Nightmares guide. It aims to connect the light and dark orbs of each side. Once you’re done, the damage phase begins. Shoot Nezarec in his chest to stunt him. If you don’t, your team will be wiped out. The only way to avoid this is to stand on a dark fugitive or a light fugitive (it is made by connecting a light field to a dark nod or vice versa.)
Two players have to connect the light field and the dark field. Two players must eliminate enemies. Two players must shoot Nezarec in the chest. Once the connection fields are complete, gather in a platter and shoot Nazarec. This starts the damage phase. Use rockets and fusion grenades to damage him and weaken him with void weaken grenades or shadow shots. If the shoulder of the Nazarecs is dark, take a dark fugitive; if it is white, take light escapee. Defeat the Nazarec in its last stances by reducing its health and completing the raid.
So this is a quick overview of the raid in Destiny 2. When you have completed all the steps, enjoy your rewards and glory. Good luck, Warden!
