How To Get Buried Bloodlines

To get the Buried Bloodline, players must complete the Warlord’s Ruin Dungeon in its entirety, including the final encounter​​. It is important to note that simply participating in parts of the Dungeon is not sufficient; completion of the entire Dungeon is mandatory.

While there isn’t a traditional way to farm the Warlord’s Ruin Exotic or other loot, players do get three chances per week to complete Warlord’s Ruin, one on each character. However, once a Dungeon enters the weekly rotation, it becomes farmable, presenting additional opportunities to acquire the Buried Bloodline​​.

Subclasses for Solo Play

  • Hunter: Nightstalker or Gunslinger (with Assassin’s Cowl or Celestial Nighthawk/Lucky Pants)
  • Warlock: Dawnblade (with Sunbracers or Dawn Chorus) or Shadebinder (with Osmiomancy Gloves)
  • Titan: Berserker (with Synthoceps or Wormgod Caress) or Sunbreaker​

Weapon Recommendations

  • Kinetic Slot: Scatter Signal (for Fusion DPS and debuffing bosses) or The Supremacy (for popping Blighted Eyes)
  • Energy Slot: Sunshot (effective against adds and Blighted Eyes)
  • Heavy Slot: Dragon’s Breath (ideal for solo play) or other powerful Rocket Launchers and Grenade Launchers​

Buried Bloodlines Drop Rate And How To Increase It

Although the base drop rate for Buried Bloodline may seem low, players can increase their odds by completing challenges specific to the Warlord’s Ruin Dungeon​​. Players can significantly increase their chances of getting Buried Bloodlines by completing specific triumphs within the dungeon.

  1. Heed The Whispers, O Vengeance Mine: This triumph involves a hunt for 10 Ahamkara Bones scattered throughout the Warlord’s Ruin Dungeon. Each bone found reveals a part of an enigmatic story, adding depth to the dungeon’s lore while increasing your chances of acquiring the Buried Bloodline.
  2. She Stood Alone, O Vengeance Mine: Test your mettle by completing the Warlord’s Ruin Dungeon solo. Undertaking this challenge without leaving the activity is a true testament to your skills and resilience, rewarding you with a better drop rate for the exotic.
  3. Withstand The Siege, O Vengeance Mine: Elevate the difficulty by tackling each encounter of the Warlord’s Ruin Dungeon on Master difficulty. This arduous task is not for the faint of heart but promises a greater reward in the form of an enhanced drop rate for the Buried Bloodline.
