How to trigger Heroic mode for Resonant Splinter Public Event

As you escort the Resonant Splinter, you’ll run into plenty of regular enemies along the path. Wiping out these weaker foes has a chance of dropping Resonant Charges (orbs).

Pick these orbs up and look back towards the Resonant Splinter. You’ll notice the device has a sphere at its core that can take damage.

The Heroic bosses are nothing special, so you should be able to take them out with ease.

Throw the orbs directly at this sphere time and time again to trigger Heroic. It appears to take a good amount of orbs, so be sure not to miss any along the way.

  1. Kill enemies along the path for a chance to drop Resonant Charges.
  2. Pick up and throw Resonant Charges at the Resonant Splinter.
  3. After throwing multiple Resonant Charges, Heroic will activate.
  4. Clear the Heroic bosses to finish the Resonant Splinter Public Event.
