Destiny 2 Forsaken bought with it plenty of content, but here’s one you may have missed: every week following the Destiny Reset at 5 pm GMT on Tuesday, a new Ascendant Challenge will appear in the Dreaming City.
There’s lots of Powerful Gear on offer, but it’s certainly no easy task. In total, the game contains six ascendant challenges that rotate weekly. The Ascendant Challenge in Destiny 2 at the time of writing, is Week 2.
But this is only available for a few more hours, as it will soon be replaced by Week 3 following tonight’s ritual Tuesday Weekly Reset.
As with all of these Ascendant challenges, you’ll first need to pick up the Ascendant Challenge from Petra.
Plus, you’ll also require some “Tincture of Queensfoil”. This catchily-named consumable can be found by completing events like patrols, public events, bounties or simply opening chests in The Dreaming City.
You can also buy some from Huginn, a secret vendor which is actually a skull found to the north of the map – but these cost 50 Baryon Boughs.
Don’t forget, death within the Ascendant Challenge will throw you back to the Dreaming City – so make sure you’re prepared before starting out!
Week 3’s challenge is found in the Observatory area, which is where you turn in Oracle offerings. The video below from Arekkz should guide you there.
Don’t forget, you’ll need to use your “Tincture of Queensfoil” to allow you to see the Portal. Using the Tincture will allow you to see some platforms that lead to a bridge, at the end of which you’ll find the Portal.
This week’s challenge is simple in theory – platform your way to the top, and defeat the boss.
Of course, in practice it isn’t quite so simple – snipers and wall-traps will attempt to knock you from your path, and one wrong step can spell doom. Thankfully, some platforms have orbs that will allow you to more easily discern platforms.
Once you’re near the top, you’ll find a hole to jump through into a circular room above. The boss will spawn on the central platform above.
Once the boss has been destroyed, the chest will appear and you can grab your shiny new loot!
If you really still need reminding, completing the Ascendant Challenge also completes the Petra’s Ascendant Bounty, which can earn you some additional powerful gear.
As a reminder, following the release of Forsaken’s Season Of The Drifter expansion, players can now grind their way to the new level cap of 700.
This week’s reset sees the start of “The Revelry”, a brand new activity with exclusive rewards – including the series’ first Kinetic Fusion Rifle along with some snazzy new armour sets.
Good luck, Guardians!
