Equipment Recommendations:

  • You will mostly be fighting Cabal forces. Bring Solar-based weapons.


When the Adventure starts, head past the waterfall and the big tree to reach a tower. You will encounter some Cabal forces, but eliminating them is not a requirement. Climb the exterior steps around the structure and go inside. Then, drop down to the Well of Flame.

Go through the Vex portal you will find there and press on until you reach an altar. Clear the hostiles you will find there, most likely a Centurion and some Legionaries, and investigate the three consoles. Once you do, you will have some Cabal moving in on your position. Deal with them one group at a time while making the best of whatever cover you can find. There will be some Phalanxes and Psions, as well as an Elite Centurion to drop. Focus on lesser enemies first, then deal with the Elite Centurion.

Your next objective will be to download the data you need from the three consoles. Every time you access a console, your position will be pushed by new Cabal enemies, so stay on your guard and clear all foes before going for the next console.

Once you have the data from all three consoles, go through the Vex portal and exit the Well of Flame. When you reach The Cistern, deal with the hostiles arriving on a dropship. Then, move to your objective marker.

Once there, deal with whatever threats present themselves. Expect some Cabal units and, possibly, some random Fallen. Then, head towards the two adjacent confluxes nearby. There will be Cabal guarding each one, with the upper one having a Centurion in its vicinity. Clear both from enemy forces before you proceed.

Establish the links with the confluxes and prepare to guard them against incoming Cabal. Standing near the upper conflux will provide you with a vantage point for both of them, so you might want to lurk there. Don't let the threat level reach 100%, otherwise, the Adventure will end.

After two or three minutes, your objective will be complete and it will update. Now, make your way to the beacon and transmit the data to complete the Adventure.
