Season of the Chosen is here and so is a new Exotic Bow called Ticuu’s Divination. This is a great exotic with some real potential, which combines both tracking and exploding arrows. Today I am going to have a look at the weapon, the stats and also how to get the weapon.
Ticuu’s Divination is an Exotic Energy Combat Bow with some very interesting perks.
- Sacred Flame – Hipfiring this weapon fires multiple tracking projectiles. Targets marked by these projectiles explode upon death, or when struck by another Sacred Flame’s explosion.
- Causality Arrows – Arrows fired while aiming down sights cause Sacred Flames to instantly detonate. Precision hits with perfectly drawn arrows increase the power of this detonation.
In terms of stats it has Impact 68, Accuracy 52, Stability 57, Handling 69, Reload Speed 64 and Draw Time 612. As well as the main perks it comes with Tactile String which slightly increases stability and also Straight Fletching which increases accuracy.
You can also pick up the catalyst quest from Banshee-44 in the Tower.
The weapon works in a couple of modes. First of all, you can hip-fire the bow which triggers Sacred Flame. You’ll see when you are hip-firing the weapon a little targeting box on enemies. Arrows are going to track these targets pretty aggressively. The arrows stick in the enemies until they die and when they do they will explode.
The other mode for the bow is by aiming down sights which then triggers Causality Arrows. This causes Sacred Flames to instantly detonate and precision hits increase the power of the detonation. This means you can pepper enemies in hip-fire mode and prep them with a few arrows, and then hit them with a shot aiming down sights, ideally, a precision hit and it’s going to cause them to explode.
How to get Ticuu’s Divination
To get this weapon there’s a couple of ways. If you are a Season of the Chosen Season Pass holder then you’ll get access to this weapon immediately. You need to check the Season Pass page and check the gifts on the paid track, at the bottom. Open this up and the bow will be yours. Otherwise, you’ll be able to get this on the free track too, but it doesn’t unlock until season rank 35.
I’ve only been testing the bow for a few hours since the launch of Season of the Chosen but this is a fun bow for sure, with some really effective exotic perks. We haven’t had tracking arrows before, plus the explosions are very useful for clearing a whole bunch of Cabal in the new Battlegrounds activity.
Before we go today let’s check out the lore as there’s some interesting bits of information in there.
Ticuu’s Divination Lore
Three points, pushed through forever.
The two Legionaries rooted through the armory of their deposed emperor. They swept the rubble aside and lifted a Bow of sharp metal, its thin frame of blackened blades bound with wire.
“This is the one the Psions made so you can’t miss.”
“Huh. How’d they do it?”
“They put time in it.”
“What kinds of time?”
“Kinds so when you shoot, that’s always when the arrows hit.”
“You never ever miss?”
“Not unless you were going to anyway.”
“But if you do miss, it’ll make it a time that you don’t?”
“Right. Unless this time was a time when you did.”
It was the third day of the dry joining. Ticuu’s voice was rasped raw, but still he clutched the Bow to his chest and held it placid in his mind.
Ticuu melded his thoughts with the null. A bastardized metaconcert, one voice in the expanse—a temporal harmony of one.
Three arrows, hissing faintly with Solar power, bristled in his fist.
Then, an echo: a rusty whine of horsehair on frayed wire. Ticuu plucked the bowstring. Spots of blood appeared on the floor. He plucked again, filling the air with oppressive vibration.
Blood welled from his fingers and dripped to match the pattern at his feet.
“How’s it make arrows?”
“They come from time, because they got put there before.”
“When you shoot it, how’s it know what heads to hit?”
“It goes in time and gets a future where heads always had arrows in ’em.”
“But which heads, though?”
“The ones that had arrows already.”
Ticuu’s mind emptied itself, dissipating across the pitch and froth of what was to be.
Time was an empty wheel around him. His song held it, and the joining pinned it in place. Three points of harmony between the will and the physical.
His fist rose. Three shafts pierced his Y-shaped pupil. They had always been there. Three points, pushed through forever.
Let me know what you think of Ticuu’s Divination down there in the comments and how do you think it compares to other recent exotic designs.
