How to complete Gaze Amaze in Destiny 2

The optional Golgoroth challenge in King's Fall explained.

Gaze Amaze is one of several King's Fall Raid challenges in Destiny 2.

This optional challenge takes place during the Golgoroth boss fight, near the mid points of the King's Fall Raid, and puts additional stress on the coordination of your fire team, but if you and your team are up to the task there will be twice as many rewards waiting for you after defeating the boss.

What is Gaze Amaze in Destiny 2?

Completing the Gaze Amaze challenge requires the Gaze Holders to stand in a pool of light when Golgoroth's Gaze is taken from them.

Two Gaze Holders will be taking turns holding Golgoroth's Gaze, so they will need to be the ones co-ordinating the switch. Everyone else will do boss damage like normal.

This must happen every time the Golgoroth's Gaze traded, and a single miss means the challenge has been failed.

For Season of Plunder, we have the Sails of the Shipstealer quest, Treasure Coordinates and Map Fragments, Cryptic Quatrains and weapons such as the Quicksilver Storm and Taipan 4FR. Meanwhile, there's the arrival of King's Fall and King's Fall challenges, plus weapons including Doom of Chelchis and Touch of Malice. For The Witch Queen, learn how to get Exotics including Dead Messenger and Parasite.

Tips for completing Gaze Amaze in Destiny 2

Golgoroth is the second boss of King’s Fall, and divides your team into two roles. During the damage phase, a group of four Guardians focus on damaging the boss, while two players take turns holding his gaze. Gaze amaze requires that the player holding Golgoroth’s gaze be standing in the pool of light when the gaze is stolen by the other Gaze holder.

This requires only a minimal change to the Gaze holder’s responsibilities. As the timer nears zero, the player holding the gaze jumps in the pool of light with the rest of the fireteam. The other Gaze holder takes the Gaze, then does the same thing when the timer nears zero. Do this for every swap every time, and the challenge will be completed as soon as the boss falls.

It's not an particularly complex challenge, but there are are few things to keep in mind. One of the people doing boss damage will explode with Unstable Light. Make sure to pay attention to which fireteam member that is, and avoid them.

Small amounts of voice chat lag and network latency can add up to a second or more, so it's best to enter the pool of light with at least a few seconds to spare. A little wiggle room can be the difference between success and failure.

For the former Gaze holder standing in the pool of light, don't be afraid to take a few shots at Golgoroth while you are down there. Every little bit of damage helps, just give yourself plenty of time to return to the upper area and steal the Gaze again.
