Ruinous Effigy

From the many wings of ruin blows a wind that will reshape this dead world.

"That's not right."

Banshee-44 taps a spectral analyzer against the Effigy's frame.

Commander Zavala turns, closes the lid on a small golden weapon case, and walks to Banshee's side. "What have you found?"

"Well, it's not petrified wood, but it is organic."

"That's troubling," Zavala says and moves to run his fingers over the weapon's frame.

"I wouldn't."

A shallow cold saps the heat from Zavala's fingertips; he pulls back. "This wasn't in Eris's report." His voice is thin and stark with disappointment, as if spoken through dead winter air.

"Guardian doesn't seem to notice either." Banshee clinks the analyzer into a tool tray. "Leeches a bit, kicks out Void. Sig's hazy, though. Wild."

Long quiet overtakes the workshop, imposed by shuttered windows and empty streets below.

They stand over the weapon. Banshee stares down and nods along to the ambient static.

"What were you saying?" The weapon master's voice is framed in apology.

Zavala puts a hand on Banshee's shoulder, smiles, and gestures to the weapon. "Equipment that uses the wielder's Light is not unprecedented."

"It doesn't use it; it eats it. Thing's got an appetite. Works almost like, uh… a converter."

"Is it dangerous?"

"Nah. Guardian doesn't even seem to notice. I'll get you a write-up."

it’s good in pve, not so stellar in pvp, and is a pretty fun gun to use. if you’ve got a while to spare, consider going for it. ps, the catalyst makes the effigy do more damage against orb damaged enimies. not really worth the effort but feel free to go for it.

Surprisingly fun to use in PvE. The orbs suppress enemies, and the Block/Drain ability makes for amazing trash clearing, not to mention the heavy attack nuke. Do be warned that if you start using the Drain without any enemies nearby to actually drain, it'll start draining your health and it WILL kill you.

Going to be a Pve meta monster.

Ethereal tree branch the gun

So good and fun to use in pve, but for pvp Wavesplitter be better

This has to be the most fun exotic to use in PVE. I love seeing people racing to get your Transmutation Orbs to start the slam dunk contest.

This is actually quite hilarious in Gambit against Invaders:
1. Hold on to your Transmutation Orb
2. Hide behind cover and wait until the Invader gets close
3. Lick and dunk

After 7 hours of use. This gun has earned its place in my arsenal and is one of the best and most entertaining guns in the game. It lacks in PVP compared to other weapons, but it still can perform well. Man

yo dis weapon kinda wacky

Good thing: The pinnacle of ad clearing, in gambit it just nuts, unique gun nothing like this has been in Destiny
Not so good thing: Boss dps

This trace rifle is hella fun in PvE but its nut very good in PvP but overall its an amazing exotic that really feels special
0
This trace rifle is the the strongest and most ammunition efficient trace rifle in the game for one reason, the orbs. If you use both the special ammo finder and special ammo scavenger, getting kills with the transmutation sphere's guard ability makes so much special ammo since the spheres (i guess) are considered a primary weapon. It's very difficult to run out of ammo with this if you use it right.

Ruinous Effigy probably sits just above Prometheus Lens for best Trace Rifle currently, and gets big points in the creativity department. A solid choice for double special weapon loadouts. The spheres clear out minors nicely with the light attack and AOE guard, and do good damage via the heavy slam attack, killing most Majors and doing decent Boss damage.

It's mostly just a meme weapon in PvP, but nailing a Guardian with the ol' Transmutation Slam can be pretty fun if given the chance.

COME ON AND SLAM!!!!! AND WELCOME TO THE JAM!!!!!!!!

This thing exceeded my expectations, and the amount of flexibility it has is amazing. First off the DPS for the actual gun is pretty good, but then theres the orbs. In PVE this thing slays, the amount of crowd control you can do with the bubble in seconds is amazing. In PVP it's also pretty fun to use, but not reliable. if you try to run at an enemy with the orb they can still one shot you with a shotgun or sniper. Overall a great exotic and one of my most favorite guns in Destiny history.

i love this gun and the blueberrys to death.

Nice weapon orbs are fun to use in pve
0
Incredibly unique and fun weapon to use in pve. Not a huge fan of trace rifles but this thing has a 10/10 fun factor. It's a meme weapon in pvp for the most part but can be sort of effective if you slam the balls for kills, but it relies on you getting a kill first to even do that.

Coldheart, Prom Lens, Wavesplitter: The meh trio
Divinity, Ruinous Effigy, next Solar or Stasis trace: The real trio
-8
It has an interesting quirk, but that’s it. Once again, one of its perks is just telling something we already knew: it creates orbs we can wield. Same goes for Coldheart: the intrinsic perk just states it’s a trace rifle, that’s it. It isn’t top tier, and doesn’t do enough damage for raids, but it’s ok.

i hope this weapon is good!
