Defeat the Darkblade - The Sunless Cell

For the moment, look and wait. The Darkblade is making his way toward you. Alak-Hul, the Darkblade is hard to see on any of his approaches. He will light up briefly whenever he is hit though. Coordinate with your fireteam you see him.

If you have a Defender Titan with a Ward of Dawn ready, now is the time to use it. If they have the Helm of Saint-14 then it is very possible to half the health of Alak-Hul without too much risk. The Knight will still attack with his axe. Be mindful of it and its area smash effect. It can fling a Guardian a short distance.

When reduced to below half health, Alak-Hul's helmet will crack. This gives a thin red light that emits from his head. With the darkness of the cell, this goes a long way toward just tracking him.

At the mid-point of his health, he will also become more aggressive. Be wary of this because of the increased number of attacks with the Axe. Use the Thralls, [[Destiny: Hive Acolyte|Acolytes and Cursed Thralls
