Destiny – Veliniks, the Ravenous

by Prima Games Staff

This article will show you how to find and kill Veliniks, the Ravenous by visiting the Hellmouth region of the Moon. This Bounty is part of the Destiny: House of Wolves expansion.

Guardians can pick this particular Queen’s Wrath Bounty up by visiting The Reef and speaking with Petra Venj. She is located to the left of where you spawn in, just up the small set of steps. Her stock refreshes on Tuesday at 5:00 AM EST, so if you don’t see any Bounties, you’ll have to wait for the weekly reset. This target does give you an Ether Key when killed, so even if the Bounty is in your inventory you still have something to gain by completing it.

Wanted: Veliniks, the Veiled

Leave The Reef and go to Orbit. You’ll want to select the Patrol option for the Moon, and this will deliver you to Archer’s Line. Summon your Sparrow and travel up the hill and to the left. If you continue to follow the path you will be at the Hellmouth shortly. As soon as you are, there will be a giant hole on the right. Pass it on the left and head to the small path that leads to the huge open area. Don’t bother going any further, the event you’re looking for typically spawns right where you are.

This event consists of four or five waves of Fallen enemies, and it will spawn about every 10 minutes or so. Be prepared to wait, but feel free to wander around the area. As long as you stay in the Hellmouth you will get a message on your screen that A Pack of Wolves is Prowling.

During the first wave, don’t bother using your Heavy Ammunition, Grenade or Super Ability. Save those for the last wave. Of course, if you are with several other Guardians, just gang up and take these fools out using whatever you want. The fight is easy if there are at least three of you.

If you’re alone, take out the Scorch Captains who are carrying the Scorch Cannons. When they are dead you can pick up their dropped weapons, 10 round rocket launchers that should help you get all the way into the final round (and part way through it). Just keep blasting away until Veliniks, the Ravenous shows up in the final wave.

When your primary target is in play is when you want to bust out the Grenade, Super Ability and the Heavy Ammo. You should be using weapons that deal Arc damage, and we’re really big fans of a Sniper Rifle we purchased from Variks called Shadow of Veils. This will cut through your foe like butter. If it’s not an option, use your best substitute.

When the fight is over you will have a message that tells you of an Ether Key, as well as a 90 second timer to find a chest and claim some rewards. The chest can spawn in several locations in the Hellmouth, so look for a thin beam of light shooting out of the top. If there are several Guardians with you, let one of them find it for you, as there is almost always someone nearby who knows where to look.

If you have more that you want to do, stay on the Moon. You might even consider reading our Destiny: House of Wolves Walkthrough and Guide. If you’re done for the day, get back to The Reef and hand the completed Bounty over to Petra Venj.
