hand of fate 2 brought us more of our favorite aspects of its 2015 predecessor and added a few new things just to keep us guessing. new game mechanics, new cards, and a fresh coat of paint on the graphics front.
What it also brought with it are some of the most difficult and frustrating challenges we’ve faced in a long time. one of the most infuriating has to be the devil: a challenge that’s hard enough to beat on its own merits, and that’s without considering the added difficulty of the gold token.
However, we did some digging, made some deals with some hellish sources, and got some of the best advice we could find for defeating the devil with the gold token in hand from Destiny 2.
the ultimate goal of the gold token: a drink with theophilus
The key to earning the gold token during Fate 2’s Devil in Hand challenge is to save all your companions, along with Theophilus, through the Gray Traveler’s Card plot. this involves making sure that theophilus himself can drink from the mystery vial at the end of your trials.
This is a hard map, but it’s not as hard as it looks.
how to beat the devil in hand of destiny 2
The Devil’s Challenge is full of puzzles and challenges, but the real kicker comes during the final map, where you must complete theophilus’ mysterious recipe and rescue Estrella.
the best way to do this is with the desert trek card. If you can reveal this card on the final map, it will fill the area with Desert Crossing cards, allowing you to bypass Lord Apollyon’s final card and go straight to the Imperial Justice card, where Star awaits.
Assuming you’ve given theophilus his vial to willingly drink, you’re only one big imperial fight away from getting the devil’s gold token.
some aspects to take into account
first of all, how do you get the desert travel card? Fortunately, this is one you can get your hands on pretty soon, if you haven’t already. the caravan raid card will give you four chances to pick a clean caravan through the card wheel challenge. When you try the card wheel, keep your eyes on a map card. that’s the one you want. by placing the map card on the card wheel, you’ll get the caravan raid token, which translates to the desert journey card.
It’s also important to note that the Imperial Justice card on the final map will drop you to 50% of your health, so do your best to keep an eye out for gear cards, encounters, and boons that can help you. get ready for that. It’s your final battle during the challenge, and you don’t want to get caught with your pants down!
this is how you get the devil gold token in the hand of destiny 2. what challenges have left you frustrated? let us know, and we’ll see what we can do to help!
