Nightmare of Taniks, the Scarred

From Destinypedia, the Destiny wiki
Jump to: navigation, search
"Years ago, Taniks tore the Vanguard apart over a mere bounty. Andal Brask was murdered in cold blood, and the Hunter Vanguard was left without a leader. Taniks would ultimately die on the orders of Cayde-6. But the scars he left among all Guardians would never fully heal. Once again, the Pyramid takes advantage of our collective pain. We will not succumb."

The Nightmare of Taniks, the Scarred is the Nightmare form of the infamous murderer and mercenary, Taniks, the Scarred. He has now been recreated by the Pyramid, and representing the Essence of Isolation. Guardians must face him in the Nightmare Hunt to create a piece of Dreambane Armor to be able to breach the Pyramid.

Overview[edit]

Taniks is the third nightmare you hunt during the campaign of Shadowkeep, found within the Temple of Crota in the room right before the lift that once lead to his ketch, you confront the Nightmare and destroy it. Taniks fights just like how he did back during House of Wolves, but with the Nightmare ability of turning invincible and summoning Nightmare Fallen.

Trivia[edit]

Due to the real Taniks' history of cheating death, the Nightmare of Taniks may be among those that could represent a living enemy, alongside the Nightmare of Fikrul, the Fanatic, whose template has been resurrected multiple times with Dark Ether.
