Another great site to bookmark! Thanks for sharing!

Besides Raids, the guides include Nightfall Strikes and Exotic Bounties. Concise but thorough -- as well as entertaining.

Brief excerpt from:

Strike Guide: The Nexus

"ARC BURN: The servitor phase is going to be challenging and the Nexus will be easy

VOID BURN: The servitor phase will be (mostly) easy and the Nexus may make you cry"

Definitely going to try some of the tips on my next Nightfall/Weekly.

We stopped at Crota that night.  One of our guys had to head out early.  We tried again last night, and we seemed to just get further away.  We dinked around a few times and tried a few ideas out, and tested some things, but we still haven't killed him.  I think we all know what needs to be done, for the most part.  For some reason, we're just not quite putting it together, though.  I think we're all on a slightly different page (killing Crota in two swords by downing him three times versus taking it nice and steady and dealing with the Ogres, for example).

A few of us tried CE on normal last night.  We were making ground on Crota but it got real late and we had to drop it.  Got some nice raid gear though.

Tried hard mode last night..got to bridge and stopped. Two hits from the level 33 thralls or one cursed explosion will kill a level 31. 10 shots with ice breaker to kill sword bearer from same level 31. Need to complete upgrading all my raid gear. Level 32 has much more effectiveness.

Absolutely.

I heard that Titan blind bubbles in the boomer towers and a pair of camo Hunters tag-team hitting Crota are the ticket for hard mode. All 32 of course...

There are many ways to run hard mode and beat it, and all of the ways have a lot of randomness and weirdness baked into the cake.  I don't understand the tag teaming Hunters, though.  That doesn't make much sense to me.

Beat hm Crota twice last week.  The strategy isn't that difficult, it is just a lot of little things to pay attention to. A couple of titans with blessing of light does help. Also having weapons that regen health or armor that regens health upon poping your super or picking up an orb helps. Ghorns are usefull but not super necessary but having maxed weapons is. We never blocked the boomers or touched them. Took three swords to kill him and we had one 31 with us on both runs. If you need help or need a sword runner send me a msg on xbl. Lets get everyone the loot.

Titan bubbles don't need to be blind using the 41 Helm -just shield from the boomers on left and right sides of the left tower. I have tried the center strat but the best so far is the two Titans left side, boomer room left side and people down sword bearer left side as well from stairs. And have a good supply of heavy synth. Hunters are prob the best for using the sword cause of the invisiblity and speed. Got the weapons twice over except the necrocasm, scout rifle and the sniper. A fully powered Ice Breaker is good to get out of the room with as one shot on the Acolytes will cause others around to explode from the top of the door frame. Or we also have a Titan bubble sometimes ready to go to in the room to help others and pick up orbs.
