The Root of Nightmares has been revealed to be Destiny 2: Lightfall's first raid.
The new raid will seemingly have Guardians traverse through The Witness' Pyramid ship, taking on unsuspected foes. Additionally, after much rumor and rabble-rousing, one of Destiny 2's more mysterious characters, Nezarec, might be making their first appearance there.
