The Trouble With Eidolons

Eidolon hunts are cool. You follow a massive, wailing monster across the Plains, breaking it down bit by bit until it screams, falls silent and rises into the air, subdued by your lures and dragged off into nothingness. It’s really… quite horrific when you think about it, as the Teralyst just wanders around the Plains mourning the loss of its family and doing nothing else until we attack it. Then we capture it using a bunch of horrible Grineer drones and the spirits of their own mini brethren. But the problem is, if you want to kill an Eidolon or… [Continue Reading]

How to Hunt an Eidolon

In light of the 23 minutes of raw footage of capturing Eidolons I posted on the SPUF of Legend Youtube channel, I should probably, you know, tell you how to hunt and capture an Eidolon of your own.

Teralysts, Gantulysts and Hydrolysts, oh my!

The Shrine of the Eidolon update brought with it some new Eidolon related things, as one might expect. Honestly it would be pretty weird for an update named after a thing to not contain said thing. But yes, as well as the Teralyst, you can now fight two new Eidolons, both of which are fucking huge and way bigger than the Teralyst. But at the same time they both kinda just look like the Teralyst with some small changes. If you’re still here, I’ll assume you’ve completed the War Within. Because you need your dumb space kid. Teralysts, Gantulysts, Hydrolysts… [Continue Reading]
