Destiny 2 Tracing the Stars is a new weekly quest in Season of the Lost.
You're tasked with finding specific items scattered around the world, and in return for your trouble, you get some rather nice rewards. This week's reward is another stasis weapon, so it's well worth your time.
Tracing the Stars resets every week with the usual reset, and we'll update with the new quest information when that happens.
Destiny 2 Tracing the Stars | How to start Tracing the Stars
The quest begins after you complete Season of the Lost’s opening mission, Wayfinder’s Voyage I, and unlock the HELM. Once that’s all finished, you can access Tracing the Stars from the Compass.
Walk through the portal, then speak with Mara Sov. She’ll task you with finding Atlas Skews in the Dreaming City. Locations change each week, but this week’s are Divalian Mists, inside the Drowned Bay Lost Sector, and the Spine of Keres.
