The new raid in Destiny 2's Forsaken extension, Last Wish, launched yesterday at 10 o'clock on the Pacific Ocean. This morning a four-team team cleared six at the end of the raid and hit Riven of Thousand Voices after almost 19 hours of skull-crushing intense grinding. You can see the moment Last Wish was finally ordered. Bungie confirmed the performance on Twitter:

Per Bungies tweet and one earlier This week In Bungie blog posts, all the world's first raiders will get a custom WWE- silent trophy belt. In addition, they and all other players who delete the last wish within 24 hours after the release – it's only under four hours left of writing – will receive an exclusive in-game badge and will be eligible to order a custom raid jacket.
The world's first winners also received the exotic merger-driven One Thousand Voices, which "releases a giant continuous beam of death" according to the database entry. Usually this weapon would be a rare fall from the raid, but it was guaranteed to all who clear the last wish first.
By comparison, the world's first race for the first raid in the original Destiny, the beloved Vault of Glass, took around 14 hours. The first raid in Destiny 2, Leviathan, took players just under six hours to break. Last wish ruined these records, largely because of their last two meetings, which stumped every competing raid team for several hours at the end. Not only that, the players were stunned to find another tough meeting waiting to kill Riven: they had to crawl into their bodies, literally tearing out their hearts and fleeing with it. Which is a pretty suitable sendoff for an animal that caused so many heartbreaking team napkins.
Now, as the last wish is cleared, new content has been unlocked in Dreaming City, Forsaks final goal: a new strike called The Corrupted is now available and a new task called The Courier can Retrieved from Petra Venj, complete with a powerful gearbox. According to an in-game query that appeared when the raid was cleared, the last boss, Riven of a Thousand Voices, has also more amazing plans in the store, so we'll probably see more content unlocking in the coming weeks.
