— Ecthar, Sword of Oryx[1]

Echtar, Sword of Oryx is a Ascendant Hive Knight that appears as a boss during the Quest A Sword Reforged.[2] He is a high ranking member in Oryx's forces, and answers to him directly.[1]

Gameplay[edit]

Ecthar is encountered in The Asylum while on Patrol during the Quest A Sword Reforged, with Guardians attempting to draw out their Sword's full potential. He possess an invincible shield that can only be broken and taken down by the player's Sword, but while his shield is down he is vulnerable to all forms of damage. He is assisted by the Silent Brood along with the unique Cursed Thrall variant, the Dredge Exploder.[2] He can be identified by his glowing white shield and unique Cleaver.

Trivia[edit]

  • Ecthar is the third Hive to speak English in-game, after Crota and Oryx, respectively.
  • Ecthar is unique among the Hive in that he possesses five eyes and not the normal three. In addition, his eyes are white instead of green.
  • Although seen in cutscenes as the usual Ultra Knight size, being comparable to enemies like Alak-Hul, he is actually the size of a normal Knight in-game.
  • Ecthar's mechanic is later adopted by Kathok, Roar of Xol in Destiny 2's Warmind expansion.
