Destiny 2 Forsaken Raid: Here’s how to power level for it


Are you ready, Guardian?

Destiny 2 Forsaken‘s Last Wish Raid drops over the weekend, and developer Bungie’s here to hype you up for it. Luckily, we’re here to help you prepare for it.

Last Wish will take place inside The Dreaming City, a special endgame location that requires a bit of work to get to. Looking at Bungie’s teaser today, that work is certainly worth it.
