Hello there! Yesterday when Hard mode was released, I killed my RAM by watching 7 different Twitch live-streamers to acquire mass amount of information on the Crota's End Hard Raid!! I have collected as much information as I can, so here it is. It covers Passive Raid Mechanics, Rewards, Differences from Normal to Hard, etc.

Hard mode Crota's End Tips and Info
-------------------------------------------------------

Passive: All of Raid
- No Reviving unless Warlock Revive or Wiping.
- Heroic Modifier.
- Some sort of enemy Speed boost/Enemies are faster. (Most noticeable in Forest Run)
- All Hallowed(Ultra) enemies have an increased armor boost on top of ALREADY being Ultra ranked.

Part 1: Forest Run
- Lamps last for 3 seconds less than Normal.
- Hallowed(Ultra) Cursed & Normal Thralls Everywhere.
- Knights and Ogres are Hallowed(Ultra).
- Bridge takes 5 seconds longer to form.
- Instance Reward: "Oversoul's Edict" (Pulse Rifle).

Part 2: Bridge Encounter
- Almost everything is Hallowed(Ultra).
- At least 1 Gatekeeper MUST be killed to complete instance.
- Bridge stays active for 3 seconds instead of 5 seconds.
- Both Ogres have to be killed within 1 minute in between each other or else the dead Ogre will respawn.
- Instance Reward: "Abyss Defiant" (Auto Rifle).

Part 3: Shrieker Cave
- Radiant Chest Timer reduced to 15 seconds, from 20 seconds.
- Instance Reward: 2-3 Radiant Material from Chest. (You will NOT get a reward if you've gotten the chest on Normal difficulty)

Part 4: Ir Yut, The Deathsinger
- Deathsinger's Illurgy is reduced to 2 minute 30 seconds, from 4 minutes.
- Both Shriekers must be killed within 1 minute of each other or the Illurgy countdown will activate instantly.
- Ir Yut takes more damage while performing the Illurgy.
- Instance Reward: (No Raid Weapons or Armor), 3-4 Radiant Material, and/or an random 331 Exotic Weapon. (You will NOT get a reward if you've gotten the chest on Normal difficulty)

Part 5: Crota, Son of Oryx
- No Chalice of Light.
- Chalice DOES NOT drop from killing the Hallowed(Ultra) Wizards or Gatekeepers.
- Knight Boomers are Hallowed(Ultra).
- Starting room Sword Knights are Hallowed(Ultra).
- Gatekeepers are in the Crota boss fight.
- Hallowed Wizards replace the Bridge Sword Knights beside Crota.
- You can not heal from Chalice or Warlock revive glitch.
- The ONLY ways to heal during the fight are:
~ Suros Regime Ability
~ Red Death Ability
~ Subclass Abilities (Hungering Blade, Life Steal, Transfusion)
~ "Infusion" armor ability (Crest of Alpha Lupi & Light Beyond Nemesis)
- Instance Reward: "Word of Crota" (Hand Cannon), "Fang of Ir Yut" (Scout Rifle), Hard Mode Shader, Ship, Sparrow, "Crux of Crota/Necrochasm" (Exotic Auto Rifle).

Please if any of my Research and Rewards are incorrect, please notify me and I will fix!

Thanks for this, it is an amazing post.

I'll probably use a fair amount of material here, and cross check it as well. So thank you :)!

Great work.

Nice post man. You might want to add that the chests and the Deathsinger do not reward you if you have already completed them on normal mode.

I can also confirm getting the AR, and 3 other people in my group, at the bridges.
