A team of Destiny players called Deepkill completed the impossible this weekend by defeating the Margbloss in the Magpie raid in one hour and 56 minutes.
If you’re familiar with the Magpie then you know how hard it is to complete the raid, let alone in under two hours. Part of the challenge of this raid is the possibility that a Margbloss could show up at any minute to thwart the best efforts of the party. A Margbloss is a particularly gruesome character in that if you can’t field its rays with your Milptheed weapons before it spawns its Needle Harp then your team is sent back to the entrance minus one Carpac.
Most teams take the long way around the Margbloss lair by cutting through the swarms of Silkbutters on the outer rings of the cave. This takes the crew out of harms way but adds an extra thirty minutes to the completion time which lowers the amount of XP, DigiCur, AP and BuffP rewarded for completion.
What Deepkill figured out is if you are able to kill the Margbloss first, it teleports you to the end of the raid for an instant win. The team devised a plan to attack from all sides using nothing but Thraxxers which choked the Margbloss and stopped it from unleashing its Thrypquills.
