Just under 19 hours after it went live, Destiny 2 Forsaken’s raid has been defeated.
Last Wish went live at 6pm UK time on Friday 14th September, and at around 12.45pm a day later, Clan Redeem finally finished the raid. It took 18 hours and 48 minutes, to be exact. That’s the longest it’s taken for a Destiny raid “world first” – even longer than vanilla Vault of Glass took.
Clan Redeem, playing on the PC version of the game, has now scored five world firsts in Destiny.

Members of Clan Redeem are set to get a pro-wrestling championship-style belt – a real life one – from Bungie as a reward.
Last Wish took a lot longer to be defeated than most expected. Previous new raids have been downed in a matter of a handful of hours. But then Bungie had promised one for the hardcore Destiny players, so in that sense it has certainly delivered.
The completion of Last Wish prompted a cool in-game broadcast to all Destiny 2 players, notifying them of the milestone. This is what it looks like:
There’s also a new cutscene upon entering The Dreaming City, Forsaken’s new endgame destination:
Last Wish involves a brutal fight against Riven, the last ahamkara (Destiny’s wish-granting dragon-like entities). Riven, it seems, desired this conflict as it now exposes The Dreaming City to The Taken, Destiny’s darkness-riddled enemies. Perhaps there’s a greater power pulling the strings?
There’s always a greater power, isn’t there?
So there you have it: Forsaken’s raid is done and dusted. But there’s already a new quest and a new strike waiting for players to tackle now Last Wish is down. And players are already reporting The Dreaming City is different in mysterious ways.
