1. Tainted Artifact
This unknown artifact seethes with an odd, familiar sickness.
Artifact shown to the Drifter: 1
2. The Cleansing
Purge the artifact of its sickness.
"Some who walk a darker path believe what we call 'Weapons of Sorrow' ain't a complete science. This artifact could be key to a new understanding—if you're willing to risk temptation." —The Drifter
3. A Cleansed Artifact
The artifact is now cleansed. But what is its purpose?
"The artifact is free of disease now. I might be able to see what it's for. Bring it to me. Let's see how far down this dead-end leads." —The Drifter
Drifter visited: 1
4. The Temptation
Want to see what this artifact can do?
Feed it Light by defeating Guardians in the Crucible. Being defeated will impede progress.
"The 7th Book of Sorrow speaks of a great Unmaking. Old friends of mine believe it's the blueprint for terrible weapons made in its name. I think they're mostly right, but to find out… some of your friends are gonna have to suffer." —The Drifter
Guardians defeated: 135
5. The Damnation
The artifact is calling to something dark.
Uncover a dark ritual on Titan and stop the twisted ceremony.
"The artifact is in pain. Can you hear it? It's made to feed on Light, and that Light is feeding something… other. The trail is faint, but the screams don't lie. Get to Titan. Answers wait where dead things play." —The Drifter
Hive ritual stopped: 1
6. A New Jagged Purpose
You found a Guardian's helmet penetrated by a unique bullet.
"The artifact was part of a Hive ritual tied to their efforts to perfect the Weapons of Sorrow. But that helm you found? Only one thing can cut through a Guardian like that. We may be too late. New weapons may already be in play." —The Drifter
Drifter visited: 1
7. Sullied Light
The Hive weapon master is creating new Weapons of Sorrow. You need to stop it. Gather powerful objects to sully your Light and complete the ritual.
- Collect Etched Crystals from Lost Sector wanted escapees.
- Earn multiple "Best served cold" and "Blood for blood" medals in the Crucible.
- Defeat Hive with precision damage to collect larvae.
- Sacrifice Hive bosses summoned in Witches' Rituals.
"This is it, Guardian—the furthest you've gone down sorrow's road. There ain't no turnin' back. If the Hive are upgrading their arsenal, we need to know where and how, so we can stop it… and learn from it. Don't worry. This ritual won't make you a bad guy… It'll just feel like it." —The Drifter
- Hive Larvae collected: 50
- Crucible medals earned: 25
- Heroic Hive rituals completed: 3
- Etched Crystals collected: 15
8. Sorrow's Road
You have all you need to track the Hive weapon master.
"Using the thorn from your dead friend's helm and lettin' corruption touch your Light ain't an easy call. But you didn't back down. Come see me and we'll track the weapon that fired that jagged bit of death." —The Drifter
Drifter visited: 1
9. The Conversation
Hunt him down!
"Time to hunt us a Hive weapons master and put an end to whatever he's cookin' up. This is where you get to be a hero, and we both get to learn a little bit more about things best left undiscovered. Careful out there, you'll be alone, and the odds'll be stacked. Hope you make it back." –The Drifter
Enkaar defeated: 1
|The Last Word|
10. A Darker Path
You defeated the Hive weapon master thanks to a mysterious gift, the Last Word.
What would the Drifter say about that?
"The hunt is over. Our weapon master is defeated, thanks to you. And in his wake, you've found… the Last Word? Well I'll be. Hm. It's probably best we close this case down. For now." —The Drifter
