2. Complete The “Stuff Of Myth” Triumph
This can be found in the “Triumph” tab under crucible and glory. This step of the quest requires you to reach a fabled rank (2100 glory points) in competitive PvP and get around 40 wins. You can progress this in “Quick Play.” However, there are two main requirements you need to fulfill before you get to completing this triumph
- Win matches in the Crucible
- Reach Fabled Rank
Both these tasks are time consuming, but have to be completed if you want to get your hands on the Recluse. To win matches in the crucible, you will need to fill the bar to 100%. Remember that each win in the crucible grants you 1%. However, matches played in the Iron Banner and Competitive playlist will grant you more to get to that 100%. To get to that 100%, you’ll need to win approximately 100 matches in the Crucible
However, winning matches in the crucible isn’t the only required as you’ll need to reach the fabled rank i.e achieve 2100 glory points to get closer to the Recluse. When it comes to Crucible rank, you can achieve a total of 6 ranks starting from the Guardian. Each ranks is further divided into three sub-ranks . The ranks you can achieve are:
The more games you play, the higher ranks you’ll achieve by winning in the Crucible. Every match won adds to your glory rank and every new rank awards with you with a package. The only way to climp up the ranks is by winning matches in Shadowkeep, which is the competitive playlist inside the crucible. The Shadowkeep is an intense survival mode wherein there are limited revivals
Note: You lose points for every match you lose in the Shadowkeep. If you are more interested in shadowkeep, here are some of the weapons you can get from shadowkeep.
