Destiny 2: Ascendant Challenge Week 1 Location

by Liana Ruppert

Destiny 2’s Jokers Wild expansion offers a lot to do for players looking to continue on in their journey with their Guardian, including incredible gear to find, Gambit Prime competitions to pwn at, and new missions to complete. For those looking to complete this week’s Ascendant Challenge, here’s a small guide to help you complete this week’s objective as effeciently as possible. 

This week’s challenge is not new, but it is specific. For those just jumping in on the action, you’re going to need to collect the bounty from Petra in the Dreaming City before you begin. For this particular challenge, players will also need to have the consumable Tincture of Queensfoil, which can be gained by completing certain objectives in Dreaming City. For those that don’t want the extra work, they are also available to buy as well. 

Once aquired, head to the Aphelion’s Rest Lost Sector found in The Strand. You’ll find this location near where Petra is usually found, making it easier to get to to begin this week’s challenge. Once the consumable has been taken, a Taken portal will appear through the Lost Sector. Jump in to find yourself in the Ascendant Plane’s Ouroborea. 

The Ouroborea will house four blights for players to find. Enter the dome, destroy the core, and deal with the four blights. Once completed, head back to the center in order to destroy the crystals, though there will be knights lying in wait to derail you so it’s important to keep moving. 

Though it won’t have the best gear ever, this week’s Ascendant Challenge will also help knock out a bounty from Petra which will  include a reward that is still very much worth the effort. It’s also an easy way to increase that power level, which has recently been raised to 650.

With The Black Armory offering new Forges, and new quests to partake in, there are more than a few reasons to jump back into the world of Destiny 2. 

As for the game itself, you can get in on the action on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.
