Destiny 2 Ascendant Challenge guide: how to complete the challenge for Nov 6 - Nov 13

This week's Destiny 2 Ascendant Challenge is in the Harbinger's Seclude. You can find it in the back of Rheasilvia in the Dreaming City. To get to Rheasilvia, follow the cliffside path left of the entrance for the Blind Well. From there, make your way through the large chapel-like building in the back, following the linear path to a large statue in an open plaza. Pop a Tincture of Queensfoil and you'll see the portal to the challenge. Refer to the start of the video above if you get lost in Rheasilvia or have a hard time scaling the statue. 

Beating the challenge 

The challenge itself (00:48 in the video above) is straightforward enough. You need to kill the Hive in the central arena, grab the sword they're guarding, and use it to kill the three elite Hive knights. Other enemies will spawn while you fight the knights, but you do not need to kill them. That being said, if you're alone, low-level, or simply feeling pressured, by all means kill some of the trash mobs. The knights are easily dispatched: they don't hit that hard and you can stun-lock them using the sword's heavy attack. Once all three are dead, look for a portal in the distance and follow the platforming path toward it. Be careful of flying debris and fading platforms - in other words, move quickly but not recklessly.  

Harbinger's Seclude Taken eggs  

There are two Taken eggs in this challenge. The first egg (03:30) is hidden on a far-off mountain. With the central arena's platforms to your left and right, climb on top of the central pavilion in the back of the arena. You'll be able to shoot the egg from there, though it may take a few shots. 

The second egg (03:57) is on a different mountain to the right of the platforming path. Follow the path to a circular platform and look for a small mountain nearby when the landscape is lit up. Use the Hive sword to reach it. The second Taken egg is around the back of the mountain.  

Harbinger's Seclude hidden lore 

Finally, you can find a scrap of lore (04:55) in this challenge at the end of a string of hidden platforms. The first platform is located underneath the pavilion where you start the normal platforming section. Make sure your Tincture of Queensfoil is still active, otherwise you won't be able to see the platforms.
