Menagerie encounters always begin with Lamp Lighting and is followed by a random selection of encounters until you have proven your worth to Calus. Each battle will have a golden hologram of Calus’ head to start the encounter. Raid Banners are permitted in the Menagerie, so it’s wise to stock up from Petra in the Dreaming City if you haven’t already.

Each encounter is timed and will be deemed complete if players run out of time or fill the meter to the designated spot. Once the bar is full players will fight a boss. There are three bosses in the Menagerie that rotate with each weekly reset. Reddit user kramrm has created a wonderful graphic summarizing each encounter, and we’ve detailed them below.

Hasapiko, Beloved By Calus

Hasapiko is a giant Vex Minotaur and will spawn on the front of the stage with shield immunity. Players will need to kill Harpies on the left, right, or middle area of the fight. Once the Harpies are dead, they will drop a pool that players will stand in to bring Hasapiko’s shield down.

When the shield is down, players will deal damage and have to evade walls of energy that will be sent down three different lanes. Avoid the energy walls to keep from dying. This process is repeated until Hasapiko is has been vanquished.

Triumph – Defeat Hasapiko for on triumph. Defeat Hasapiko without allowing any fireteam member dying during a Heroic Menagerie run.

Arunak, Beloved By Calus

Arunak is a Hive Ogre who will spawn in with shield immunity. Players will need to kill exploding Thrall to make them drop orbs. Once these orbs drop, players will need to pick them up and throw them at Arunak. Throw enough orbs to drop Arunaks shield and deal damage until he is dead. This will take a little bit of time as Arunak is a little tougher than Hasapiko.

After dealing enough damage to Arunak, the shield will come back up and spawn more enemies. Wizards will spawn the second time around while Knights will spawn the third time around.

Triumph – Defeat Arunak for one triumph. Defeat Arunak without allowing any fireteam member dying during a Heroic Menagerie run for the other triumph.
