Destiny Crota HM Health Guide

Destiny Crota HM Health Guide by theBuddha7

This is a rough guide to Crota’s health, based on how his health bar compares to the words in his name. I assume comments will constructively suggest corrections, and I’m all for that. This helped me today with an awesome LFG group (3 31s and 3 32s, because we don’t level judge) determine exactly how many hits Crota had left in him. I’m assuming your Swordian is Level 32 and s/he’s only using the Smash Swing (RT/R2), not the Swipe (RB/R1).

Hard Mode, Level 32 Swinging with RT/R2 (X1/P4) Only

Hopefully starting with 4 spaces made the above appear in a fixed-width font. Hope this helps someone, and sorry if it’s been posted before but I couldn’t find it.

Happy Hunting, Guardians!

Also, for you, I’ll add my general Crota notes:

1) Sword lasts 30 seconds from the moment it’s picked up, not the moment it’s downed.

2) Sword disappears 45 seconds after SwordBear is downed. You have 15 seconds, then, to pick up the sword if you want the full 30 second clock on it.

3) Crota moves right 60 seconds after you walk out of the door.

4) 14th hit causes enrage, but you can still get 1-2 more hits in before he stands up if hit 14 is your first of the down (note: I’ve read hit 15 causes enrage, so I’m open to adjusting this number based on user feedback).

5) From comment discussion: A swipe (RB/R1) does about half of the damage that a full swing (RT/R2) does (7201 vs 15301). A super does about twice the damage of a full swing (I do not have the super damage numbers on hand). So two swipes are roughly equal to one “hit” in the above chart, and one super counts as about two “hits.”

And my Swordian rules-of-thumb (the important bits of the above health info):

After the first sword, if you did two downs:

You got 6 hits if his health is around the beginning of the “S” in “Son” (end of the space)

You got 7 hits if his health is around the end of the comma (beginning of the space)

You got 8 hits if his health is distinctly before the comma at the end of the “a” in “Crota” (between characters)

After the first sword, if you did three downs:

You got 9 hits if his health is in the middle or at the end of the “t” in “Crota”

You got 10 hits if his health is distinctly before the “t” and after the “o” in “Crota”

You got 11 hits if his health is in the middle or beginning of the “o” in “Crota”
