Val Talacanth, Bound to Sedia is a powerful Taken Centurion seen in the Temple of Illyn.[1]

Gameplay[edit]

Val Talacanth appears in the Strike The Corrupted. They are important to the elevator encounter, where Talacanth will appear, alongside two Ransacker Phalanxes, when the elevator is sabotaged by a Taken Blight. The Val will be protected by a special Awoken Shield. This shield can only be broken by throwing an Awoken Relic at it, and will be detonated like an Absorption Shield if the relic was first thrown to another player. Talacanth will engage the players with its Projection Rifle and Axion Darts, which can quickly drain a player's health, and they should be wary to not get stuck in a position where their Phalanx backup can blow them away.

In the Nightfall version of the strike, Val Talacanth is raised up to Ultra from their normal Major rank. Their Ransacker backup will also be raised, becoming Elites and gaining the same shield as their ward.
