How to start the Root of Nightmares raid in Destiny 2

Here you will learn how to start the Root of Nighmares raid, as well as how to organize your team and find your way to the first encounter:

Organizing your team for Root of Nightmares

Coordination is key to any raid, so make sure your squad can communicate effectively. There will be phases that are full of clear add-ons and others that will test your ability to deal damage per second (DPS). Make sure you bring weapons that are suitable for both of you.

The only shields you will find will be the solar ones, so it can be advantageous to carry weapons that break them easily. Linear Fusion Rifles are good options for damaging bosses, and having at least one Divinity will increase DPS significantly.

Once your squad is ready and properly equipped, open the Director. Select Neptune and start Root of Nightmares.

How to Start the Root of Nighmares Raid

The beginning of Root of Nightmares is simple: follow the colorful roots to the Pyramid ship. When you initially charge, face an opening and follow a linear path in and around various structures. You will encounter small groups of Cabal along the way.

Simply follow the path and you will soon reach the first encounter, Cataclysm.

The next part of our Root of Nightmares guide explains how to complete the Cataclysm section of the raid.
