Bound Taken Phalanxes are a variant of Taken Phalanxes. Their combat mechanics are almost identical to original Taken Phalanxes, with the only difference being that they are bounded with Prismatic Protection.


Bound Taken Phalanxes are encountered during the missions Transmigration and Iconoclasm of the Final Shape expansion, often accompanied by fellow Taken units. They fight almost identically to any other Taken Phalanx of their kind, with the only difference being that they are empowered by Prismatic Protection that blocks any incoming damage from the Guardian. The only way to break this shield is to enter Transcendence, which can be done by killing enemies with Light and Darkness-aligned damage, applying Light or Darkness-aligned buff or debuffs, standing within Prismatic wells, or shooting bound enemies if a Guardian's Transcendence bar is not filled. Once the protection is broken, the Taken Phalanx is unable to restore it, leaving them as vulnerable until they are slain.
