War Table — Operation Elbrus

Lord Saladin warns that the Lucent Hive have redoubled their hostilities in the field. You should prepare for heightened resistance.

Saladin reflects on the brutal necessity of having to destroy Ghosts—even the twisted beings that accompany the Hive. He once thought those horrors were left in the distant past, buried with the Warlords of the Dark Ages.

He regrets that today's Guardians have to go through the same experience—and he holds the Hive responsible.

"If the Hive have taken our Light, let us take their ferocity," he says. "Show them they've done nothing but teach us how to destroy them."
