Destiny 2: Forsaken – Ascendant Challenge Week 1 guide

By Lauren Aitken, Friday, 2 November 2018 15:21 GMT

Week 7 of the Ascendant Challenge sees the first repeat since Destiny 2: Forsaken’s release.

This challenge appeared both in week one and week seven, and we can expect it to repeat every seven weeks for the foreseeable future.

For those looking to finish this week’s challenge before the weekly reset on Tuesday, head over to Petra Venj in Rheasilvia to pick up the Ascendant Challenge. You’ll also need a Tincture of Queensfoil, which can be found in chests and can be dropped as a reward.

Next, you’ll want to head over to the Aphelion’s Rest Lost Sector. Consume a Tincture of Queensfoil to activate the Ascendant buff and make your way inside. You can choose to clear out the Lost Sector first and then take the consumable if you wish.

You’re looking for a portal which should appear on a hill at the back of the cave. Once you’ve sued the portal, you’ll be transported to Ouroborea and will see a lot of floating crystals that you can’t damage at this point.

There is a central platform surrounded by small platforms with Blights. You want to destroy all of these Blights first and make sure you take care of any adds that spawn as well as trying to avoid taking damage from the Taken Knights that appear.

Once you’ve destroyed the Blights, a message will appear that says “A seal breaks. An opportunity”, which is your cue to go and destroy the crystals and Knights. As you destroy the crystals, more adds will appear so take care not to get overwhelmed by them.

After all the crystals are destroyed, the Knights will die and a chest will spawn. You can explore the area after the challenge is finished and Toland’s orb is floating nearby.

And that’s it! For more Destiny 2 fun, check out our Festival of the Lost page and our ultimate Destiny 2: Forsaken guide.
