You Awesome Hawks...

It's hard for me to believe that a year ago today (June 1) I created the Ebony Hawks here on Clans Of Destiny. Being a part of, and leading a clan is something I've wanted to do for a while. Eventually I registered the clan, made a lame news post, and created my first recruitment topics here and on Bungie.net. I lurked around on this site, chatting with other Clan leaders and hype train riders as our ranks slowly grew. I don’t know what drew each of you guys to the Hawks in particular (comment below!) but I can safely say we have made a great foundation of friends here.

Rayloniaaaaaaaaa :'(

Fun Facts:
TOMMY_GUN_107 is our longest serving member. Besides people I already knew.
MrMooMooMouse has killed more clan members than enemies.
I was torn between Ebony Hawks and Ivory Falcons as a clan name.
Raylon still doesn't have a Gjallarhorn.

Thanks and Moving Forward

Once again, thank you everyone. We all know Destiny is greatly improved with a solid group of friends at our side. We have some high quality people here and I want to keep that going in our second year. Whenever I get my life in order I intend to put a lot of effort into the Ebony Hawks again. For example: recruiting like crazy in preparation of the Comet expansion (The Taken King?), pumping out media, building a useful website/forums, and getting some officers. Maybe Destiny will eventually have actual in-game clan support. Who knows what the next year has in store for Destiny, but the future is bright for the Ebony Hawks.

P.S. Yes this is a little late. I blame Trials. Fuck the Trials tongue

Hey Hawks!
It’s been a long while since the last update but I've been working on a few things behind the scenes. A few of these aren't ready to be shown off YET, but I wanted to highlight one of my projects…


We now have a YouTube channel to be proud of! Between visuals like the banner and avatar, along with actually having some videos up, the Ebony Hawks are coming to life on YouTube. I have also linked to other channels (under “The Vanguard” title on the right) which relate to Destiny. You’ll find they are a great source for news, discussion, and lore videos. Even our own Hazymage is a part of one of those channels (Uniquely Average Gamers btw).

Slaying Crota

FINALLY, after all the talk, I've put together a video commemorating our 1st clear of Crota’s End on Hard. With the exception of my untimely deaths I don’t think it turned out too bad for being a product of Windows Movie Maker.

BIG thanks to everyone who was a part of this challenge, it certainly wasn’t easy. Next video up? Vault of Glass (I know, I know).

Sharing with the Clan

So you’ve taken a million screenshots, have a great montage video you’ve been working on in the ShareFactory, or maybe have some Destiny fan fiction, now what? Why not share it with the Hawks! Whether its a fully edited video or just something you thought could be used in a clan video, we’ll take it all!

Please send everything to: [email protected]

If you’re having issues sending it for some reason, we can talk 1 on 1 about other methods. Please note that not everything sent in may be shared or could be edited in some way if the content is deemed inappropriate for what the Hawks stand for. I don’t think we’ll have a problem with that but I figured it should be said. Expect more updates in the "near" future!

See you in the Wild,

Transcript of an interrogation of a Wizard, during the great battle to reclaim the Moon.

Eriana: Incredible. Where? Where is his throne? Where is the twilight world under the dead star eye?

Unkown: Eriana there’s word from the company in Mare Imbrium. Crota is upon then. Half a hundred dead. They need us.

Eriana: Tell me where! Tell me how! TELL ME!

Unknown: Crota marches with a thousand Knights and they say the sky above Mare Imbrium has turned into green fire. They are dying in numbers I cannot bear to repeat. He kills them one by one with a sword that eats their Light. Eriana we have to do something.

Eriana: Kill the Wizard. Scatter the ash. It has nothing but lies to offer. Get your Sparrows. We have Light and fury. That will be enough.

New Content, New Glory

Three months after Destiny’s release we will now venture into the Dark Below. Word has spread of the imminent return of Crota, Son of Oryx. In the Vanguards last attempt to take back the Moon thousands of our fellow Guardians died by his blade. It’s about time the Ebony Hawks challenged this champion of the Darkness. We have 3 new story missions, 3 Crucible maps (Black Garden YAY!), 2 strikes, and a bunch of new items! AND an Iron Banner event coming up soon so keep an eye out for that.

Becoming Legend

The Hawks are planning to send a team in a bid to claim World First! We do not have a full team yet so if you are interested send Raylon a message either here or PSN. Level 30’s are preferred, but if need be we can take in 29s.

Talon Team
Brave Guardian 1
Brave Guardian 2

Lets wish this team the best of luck. Enjoy the Dark Below everyone, I’ll see you beyond the Tower.

It’s been nearly two months since Destiny was released upon our lives. We’ve done quite a bit together and have enjoyed many hours of pushing each other off cliffs/railings and keeping an eye out for Jeffrey. So naturally there are a few clan updates.

Quick Things To Mention

☩PS3 Situation: As many of us know, the PS3 division of the clan has been struggling to form since launch. This is mostly due to a lack of leadership present on the console to hold them together (and a wonderful coup) so I am currently searching for a Guardian who can step up and take charge. However, if I do not find someone who I have confidence can lead the PS3 division by 11/22 the Ebony Hawks will become a PS4 only clan. I’d hate to do that to current and potential PS3 Hawks but I think they will have a better Destiny experience if they found a clan focused on their console.

☩PSN Chat Rooms: In October I created a “Hawk Raiding” chat specifically for forming raid groups. Another chat, “General Ebony Hawk” will also re-made. Both chats will be re-made every once and a while to help keep the response time quick. Both of these chats have the date in which they were created in the title so you know which one is the old chat so you can delete it. !DO NOT CHANGE THE CHAT TITLE! When anyone besides the creator changes the title it creates a separate chat.

The chats can sometimes get pretty annoying if a lot of people are talking at once. I’d advise turning off chat notifications instead of leaving the chat so you can still stay in the loop.

Hawks Beyond Destiny

While we certainly like to play Destiny, it’s not going to be the game we are playing all the time. Talk about other games in our forums and meet up with your fellow Hawks in other online worlds. Feel free to send your Destiny videos/screenshots to [email protected]

First, you guys are awesome! I've been able to team up with a lot of you across many of the activities in Destiny and I can safely say we've built up a clan with great members. Now onto the matter at hand...

Vault of Glass

A team of Hawks went in today and fought valiantly but did not make it through. PrimeGuard, easily our greatest competition in this endeavor, has cleared the VoG on Normal First. Take a look at this DestinyNews Article for some stats and videos if you are interested. I've avoided the videos since I want to experience it first hand.

This post is for making teams. These teams will be YOUR team. That means you guys will play together each and every time you make an attempt on the Vault (with a sub here and there). Why so strict about this? Because this is not only about throwing bullets and magic space missiles at some legendary target. The Vault requires strategy, where each person knows their role and everyone else's role like the back of their hand.

So to get started, comment below with:
PSN Name
Level/Class/Subclass(mention if you have them both maxed out)
Availablity (mention your timezone!)

With that information we can get a team or two made. This post will be updated with team info as they are formed. Also, please send me a friend request so that I can mass message folks if needed.

Quick Note

I know I've gotten a few messages from people about new members. If you would like me to add someone please have them send a message to me via clansofdestiny.com! They should say who recruited them and talk a little about themselves. Just before release we had a HUGE surge of request to join the clan and I haven't been able to sort through the 50+ applications.

Keep up the great work out there Hawks!
