After beating the first two encounters in Destiny 2 Crota’s End, you’ll meet Ir Yut, The Deathsinger which is the first major boss in Crota’s End. After watching the stream myself, here is how I’ve seen players beat the Ir Yut, The Deathsinger boss in Destiny 2 Crota’s End.

Destiny 2 Crota’s End Ir Yut, The Deathsinger Boss Solution

First off, you still need to juggle the Chalice of Light. So keep what you’ve learned from the previous encounters and keep it up.

Your next objective is to kill the Shieldsinger Wizards. They are hidden behind the green doored towers. To get past the green doored towers, you need to destroy the Blistering Knights and Shriekers. Also, you can only get through the green doors if you are Enlightened.

There are three main towers with top and bottom rooms at every corner of the encounter. Split your team up and hit the middle tower on the left and right. Kill the Blistering Knights, then the Shriekers, and then kill the Shieldsingers.

However, before you kill the four Shieldsingers, you need to have at least four players with Enlightened so enough players can get through the green doored towers and kill the four Shieldsingers. You need to look at the top and bottom to make sure you find the Wizards, not the Shriekers. After watching many streams of people being this boss, I’m pretty sure you have to kill the four Shieldsinger Wizards, not the Shriekers.

When you kill a Shieldsinger, your entire team gets Dark Liturgy. This is a 35-second debuff that, once up, wipes everyone. As far as we know, the Wizards and Shriekers spawn randomly each time, but I recommend you have someone find the location of all Wizards before you kill the first Shieldsinger.

Once all four Shieldsingers are dead, the damage phase begins. Have everybody get to the middle and use your best DPS strategy to deal as much damage as possible to Ir Yut, The Deathsinger. I recommend Warlock Wells, Rocket Launchers, and Snipers.

Rinse and repeat this strategy and you should be able to clear the boss. It will be difficult, but it is doable if you have good communication and good DPS. What’s much more difficult is the next boss, Crota, Son of Oryx.
