Destiny 2’s Season of the Lost now features a new weekly mission type for players to explore. There are many secrets to uncover with this new addition, and one of them includes the Destiny 2 Forest of Echoes Ascendant Anchor Locations.
These missions are called the Shattered Realm, and they involve the exploration of the realm called Ascendant Plane to rescue the corrupted Techeuns.
The Ascendant Anchors are the floating orbs that you will find scattered throughout the Ascendant Plane. These orbs emit a purple light, making them detectable in dark caves and other interiors in the Shattered Realm.
So let’s start with our scavenger hunt for all of these Ascendant Anchor locations scattered across the Forest of Echoes.
Ascendant Anchor #1
In the Dark Forest, after collecting the “Barrier Breach,” “True Sight,” “Safe Passage,” “Ascendant Sight,” and “Ager’s Scepter Exotic,” clear both of the beacons and head back to the point where you first started.
This is where we will begin our scavenger hunt. Now right where you will land from this point, you’ll fight some enemies and find the first glowing Ascendant Anchor in front of you.
Ascendant Anchor #2
In The Shrine, clear all of the enemies to spawn the relic used for the Ascendant Mystery: The Dark Ritual. Then invoke the true path and collect the Ascendant Anchor #2.
Ascendant Anchor #3
Now turn around and jump to the platform, which is at 28 meters of height. Right on this platform, you’ll find an option to invoke the true sight.
Collect the 3rd Ascendant Anchor, and now head to your South-Western direction. Keep moving until you find a dark cage. Before heading in, you’ll have to dodge some enemies as well.
Ascendant Anchor #4
Now head towards the hallway towards your right and then to your left. Destroy the blockade on one of the walls, pick up the relic and then jump up to collect the Ascendant Anchor you just revealed by destroying the blockage.
