Grasp of Avarice Dungeon recovery

Fireteam: Up to 3 Players

Location: Cosmodrome

The Cosmodrome is your first stop after entering the Grasp of Avarice. If you go onward, you’ll see several foes gathering around the famed Destiny loot cave – it’s simply the little tunnel in the side of the wall if you’re unfamiliar. Kill every opponent that appears outside the treasure cave (enemies won’t spawn if you’re too near).

Enemies will drop Exotic-looking Engrams with gold and red flashing lights. Burdened by Riches is the dungeon’s most important mechanic, and here is your first exposure to it.

The Return of Gjallarhorn carry

You’ll get a Burdened by Riches debuff if you run over one of these Engrams. It only lasts 25 seconds and will kill you if you don’t get rid of it in that time. By picking up additional Engrams, you may stack this debuff, and each new layer resets the duration. But you’ll have to get rid of them sooner or later. This is when the crystals enter the picture.

A little white crystal may be found within the cave. If you stand adjacent to the crystal while wearing Burdened by Riches, the crystal will drain two stacks of the debuff from you. The crystal will literally expand as you add additional stacks to it. When it has grown large enough, a hole will appear in the treasure cave’s floor, and you will tumble into the dungeon.
