This page will serve as the Destiny: House of Wolves Walkthrough and Guide. It will cover all of the House of Wolves Story Missions, Queen’s Wrath Bounties at The Reef, Prison of Elders, Trials of Osiris, and how to get Etheric Light and reach level 34.
Destiny: House of Wolves didn’t come with a Raid, but what it did come with is some genuinely fun content. In fact, I personally feel that the Prison of Elders is much more entertaining than either the Vault of Glass or Crota’s End, and it seems to dish out much more consistent rewards. Trying to gather up the players to complete a Raid was one of the reasons I put Destiny down for a couple of months, and House of Wolves is the reason that I can’t stop playing it now.
It would seem that a lot of players share that thought, as Destiny is as busy and popular as ever. With that in mind, I figured that a collection of House of Wolves strategy content was in order, helping you max out that Light level at 34 before The Taken King drops on September 15, 2015.
Destiny: House of Wolves Tips
- Etheric Light is essential to reach Light level 34. You can earn it in the Prison of Elders, the Weekly Nightfall Strike, Trials of Osiris, and by ranking up during the Iron Banner events.
- If you find Legendary Engrams for one of the four armor types, you can put it in your Vault and pick it up with the Guardian that needs it the most, helping them reach the max Light level.
- Every now and then you’ll get a Legendary Engram from one of the wanted Wolves that randomly pop up around Destiny. You can camp and farm these events as often as you like.
- After killing one of the Wolves and earning an Ether Key, pay attention to where the other Guardians are going. If you can’t find the chest, the chances are one of them will lead you to it.
- Scorch Cannons are not on a timer, but rather come with 10 rounds that you can fire. Save them for the final wave of Wolves and you’ll have a much easier time taking down your target.
