How to Start the Terminal Overlord Event

To start this event, players will first need to complete the Lightfall campaign of the game, and a notification will appear on their screen showing the location of where to start the event. Once they reach the exact location, players will need to find a Cabal Psion beneath a pyramid and defeat waves of Black Legion and Vex.

Participants will have to work on more than one goal at a time until each of the four skulls is full. They have five minutes to complete all four objectives to get the best loot possible. The objectives usually start with standing on a Vex plate, then holding out a counteroffensive and taking down three artillery spotters, and finally taking down Minotaurs for their Arc Craniums.

The third and final stage sees players not only confront the Psion again but defeat it as well. This battle will be like a boss battle, and the Psion will have 3 damage phases. Defeat the enemy and survive the battle, and the quest will be complete.
