For those of you playing Destiny’s first expansion: The Dark Below, you may be aware of a new weapon that can be farmed in outside of a raid environment. It’s called Husk of the Pit. At first glance, it looks like any other white throw away. But in actuality, what we really have here is Destiny’s first truly upgradable weapon. This makes it work the time it will take you to get it (I was at it for ~4 hours, and Twitch personality Teawrex ran the Fist of Crota mission on Earth for over 9 hours).
When you are able to get this little guy to drop, which it does from Blades of Crota, it has an unusual upgrade option. If you get 500 kills on hive enemies with the Husk, it will allow you to return to Eris and purchase the Embalming Orb. You need to be rank 3 with her in order to purchase it, so grind out those quests!
If you are able to purchase the orb, you can upgrade the Husk to Eidolon Ally, a legendary assault rifle. From there, it acts like any other legendary weapon. There are several upgrades to damage, as well as different perks. Click the link above to see everything it offers. But still, this weapon is just a stepping stone. There’s one more upgrade left.
When hard mode drops in January for Crota’s End, everyone with Eidolon Ally will be looking for one more thing from the raid… the Crux of Crota. This will allow you to transform your already not-so-bad assault rifle into the crazy Necrochasm.
Aren’t you glad I gave you something to do on Christmas?
