Hefnd's Vengeance, Blighted Chimaera is a Taken Chimera and the final boss of the Warlord's Ruin Dungeon. It acts as the blighted avatar of the Ahamkara Hefnd.


Hefnd's Vengeance appears when upon the fireteam shooting the blight in the center. It is immune and will summon Taken to its aid, including Wish-Lured Blightmakers. To sever its shield, the fireteam must shoot the six Blighted Eyes around the Chimera to summon Nymeks, Fourth Broken Knight and Sirloks, Fifth Broken Knight. The Guardians must slay the Broken Knights to drop corrupted totems, they will also potentially drop totems through their attacks. Upon engaging with the Knights, the fireteam will gain the Imminent Wish buff, which lasts for 29 seconds and allows them to cleanse the totems of their corruption. When the Guardians begin to cleanse the Totems they will gain the Hex of Vengeful Corruption, a debuff that will kill them in 17 seconds. To cleanse themselves of the debuff, Guardians will need to locate Corrupted Hex-Drinkers. Upon finding them, players must melee the Hex-Drinkers to transfer the Hex to them. However Hex-Drinkers can melee them and transfer the Hex back into the Guardians. When the Totems and Hexes have been cleansed, the fireteam will gain the Naeem's Wish Empowerment buff, allowing them to damage the boss. The length of the buff depends on how many Totems the Guardians have cleansed. Once enough damage has been dealt, Hefnd's Vengeance will retreat to a higher floor, Guardians must climb to the next floor to repeat the mechanics on three different islands. Eventually the fireteam will reach the final floor, made up of three platforms that when stood on will grant Naeem's Wish Empowerment. Hefnd's Vengeance will continuously summon Blighted Eyes around it, if all eyes are summoned the Chimera will become immune and move to another section. Shooting the eyes will prevent the Chimera from going immune and increase the duration of the buff. When all three platforms have been used, the Chimera will teleport the Guardians back to the first floor to repeat the mechanics until the final stand. Upon reaching the final stand, Guardians will be teleported to the top of the islands and be granted Naeem's Wish Empowerment for an indefinite amount of time. The Chimera will summon Blighted Eyes to assist it, however they will function just like any ordinary Acolyte's Eyes. Once Hefnd's Vengeance is slain the encounter is complete.
