There is some fresh content now available in Dauntless. Patch 1.10.3 introduces Radiant Escalation and a new behemoth called Alyra.

Escalation in Dauntless is a game mode where you battle against multiple behemoths without getting the chance to resupply or change equipment. 

That said, Patch 1.10.3 brings the Radiant Escalation to the game. You’ll head to the Avellanian research facility and your job is to stop the Chronovore from wreaking havoc. As you fight your way through, you’ll unlock new amps, such as:

  • Crash Course is a new Squad Goals-style amp focused on Stagger damage. It brings with it an updated way of displaying Squad Amps in the chatbox.
  • Flicker is a moment of near-invulnerability granted when you unleash your lantern’s power.
  • Homefield Advantage lets you bring your banner into play. Flying your flag will generate a powerful aura for you and your team.

Aside from Radiant Escalation, there’s a new threat in Dauntless known as the Alyra. Unlike other behemoths in the game, Alyra can reshape its radiant power and create elemental glyphs that change its abilities when activated. Blaze glyphs, for example, makes Alyra breathe hot flames toward you. Alyra is an interesting one because it might pave the way for future behemoths to use a similar mechanic, making things more challenging for you from here on out.

Anyway, defeating Alyra will give you the necessary parts to craft the full range of Glyph Weaver weapons and the Spellbound armor skin set.
