How to Beat Royal Beasts in Destiny 2 Leviathan?
To beat this trial, you’ll have to kill all six Royal Beasts – B’ael, Ta’aurc, M’orn, Aru’un, Va’ase, and To’ourg. The first step is to kill the enemies in the forest, other than the beasts. Then, everybody reconvenes at the foot of the large statue. Two players pick up the Prism Weapons and stay on the higher level, the other four drop down the trap door and pick up the Royal Pollen.
Now, the two Guardians with Prisms need to guide the four below to glowing, purple flowers. Then, once the Pollen bearers reach the flower, the Prism holders stand in one of the pillars of light strewn about to charge the Prisms and shoot the glowing flowers. This will give those below the Empowering Spores buff. All the while, you have to be stealthy and avoid detection. If you do get seen, a counter will start, and any Guardians below that aren’t in the safe room (where you picked up the Pollen) when it counts down will die. If you do get detected, though, you can still do some damage before gunning it for the safe room.
The Empowering Spores stack, up to about 60, and you’ll want to get as much as possible. Once you’re buffed enough, unleash hell onto the Royal Beasts. After 15-30 seconds, run back to the safe room, and repeat the cycle. Try to spread the damage you do evenly across all six Beasts and dispatch them at approximately the same time. Otherwise, another counter will start, and you’ll be in serious trouble. Once all Beasts are dead, that’s the end of The Gardens in Leviathan Raid.
