Leviathan Raid Order and Challenge

The Leviathan Raid Order for week is as follows: Gauntlet, Royal Pools, Dogs (Challenge) and Calus. The Challenge this week is Dogs, which takes place in the Pleasure Gardens. This raid challenge requires two players to stand at the top of the platform in the safe room holding relics. These players will ‘fire’ these relics at the plants on the floor of the room (where the other four players are) in order to give their teammates – who are all holding pollen spores – a buff.
