September 15: A team has completed The Last Wish raid, Bungie has confirmed.
A team consisting of players Modern, Sweatcicle, Ehroar, Indica, FleshCrunch, and Gladd have earned the World’s First title in finishing The Last Wish, 18 hours and 48 minutes after it launched.
The Last Wish launched at 13:00 EDT Friday, meaning it took players longer to finish than The Vault of Glass did. Back in 2014, clan PrimeGuard was the first to finish the Vault of Glass, the original Destiny’s first raid. They managed the feat in about 14 hours.
We’ve put together everything we know about The Last Wish raid here, but beware – if you haven’t finished Destiny 2’s new Forsaken campaign, there are spoilers aplenty to be found beyond the link.
If you’re new to Destiny raids, the thing to know about them is that they require precise coordination and timing on the part of a six-person fireteam. The teams that attempt it first also have to figure out what exactly you have to do, which means deciphering obscure visual cues to follow a precise sequence of actions for every section of the massive, multi-stage mission.
Here’s the congratulatory tweet from Bungie:
Congratulations to the Last Wish World First Raid winners!

Previous raids haven’t taken this long for a team to post the world’s first. Destiny 2’s first raid, Leviathan, was beaten by PlayStation 4 clan The Legend Himself about five and a half hours after Leviathan went live. The Taken King, the original Destiny’s year two expansion, had a raid called King’s Fall that took players around seven hours to finish for the first time.
Here’s the trailer for The Last Wish.
Bungie has a list of raiders streaming their attempts on The Last Wish on Twitch if you’d like to tune in and see the other teams attempting the raid. Again, only do this if you don’t mind being spoiled on the Forsaken’s endgame content.
