With the exit of the Salvation Garden raid and its first world completion, the Sol Division Vexes are trying to emerge from the Black Garden to invade the Moon, but the Guardians are ready to chase them back where they came from. Meanwhile, there's never a lack of desire to plunder other people's races of their gadgets to make weapons out of them, so much so that now we can try to get the exotic Divinity laser rifle, a raid-related weapon that can be obtained through an Enterprise, just as happened with the Leviathan and the legend of acrius.
Get the decryption core
To begin the Enterprise you will need to go to the start of the raid, but in patrol mode, without having actually started the Salvation Garden. When you arrive at the portal to the Black Garden you will have to face three waves of Vex from the Sol Division that will culminate with the arrival of a Door Guard. Killing him will reward you with an exotic Engramma containing What is... what is this? The first step in your new quest. In the following video we see together complete this goal.
The first riddle will ask you to analyze vex cores in places frequented by Vexes and for this reason you will have to go to three lost sectors on nessus: The Confluence, The Mechanical Planetarium and the Lair of the Ancients. Inside them you'll have to find a hidden room containing a Vex core and kill a handful of Vexes who will want to protect it, finally analyze them. After analyzing the third core you will be rewarded with the second step, Defragmentation. Your Wraith will understand that they are dealing with a decryption core, but you will need to get Vex components to fully understand it.
Eyes on the Moon and the Key of the Divinity
Now you will have to kill 120 Vexes from Sol Division. Sure, some of them wander around the moon, but this will take you a long time. Better get into the heart of the Vex Offensive, activity of the Undying Season that will require you to complete Eyes on the Moon. This is a short Quest that will begin by talking to Ikora on the Tower. He will give you the Emerging Protocol object and you will have the following objectives:
- 3 Killed Door Guard
- 100 Vexes killed
While your Wraith will examine the Vanguard's databases for relevant information about the Black Garden, also making a pleasant reference to the words of Tanatona Pujari in the Legendary Grimoire card: The Black Garden, you will need to search for large masses of Vex from the Sol Division on the Moon. Wait for the end of any Public Event (you don't necessarily have to participate), then stay in the area, preferably near the area that in the Moon map is marked as Vex Invasion. Within about one minute after the end of a Public Event, an invasion portal will open in the same area from which a Gatekeeper and continuous waves of Vex, including groups of three Hydras, will appear. After killing a Gatekeeper, the Vexes will disappear and a second portal will open nearby and so on until the third Gatekeeper is killed.
If you're in a group, completing the Emerging Protocol will be pretty easy. If you're alone, be sure to reload ammunition and skills with the Public Event Flag Assembly that precedes the Vex invasion. By unloading your entire arsenal onto the Gatekeeper, you'll annihilate it pretty quickly, so don't worry if you can't kill the other two as well. You'll have to take a little more time, but you can wait for the next two Public Events and take care of the first Gatekeeper each time getting the three kills you need.
Now you have done your duty, getting the Eyes on the Moon step. Go to Eris Morn at the Sanctuary to complete it and get a chance to start the Vex Offensive activity. While you are there, it is very likely that during this short Enterprise you will have obtained your 120 Vex components needed to repair the decryption core, thus obtaining the Nightmare Core step. Do not move from the Sanctuary and go to the Enchantment Lectern. You will discover that you can amplify your core by spending 30 Phantom Fragments, arriving at the new Step Key of the Divinity.
Enigmas in the Garden of Salvation
Now you'll need to complete your quest by solving a few puzzles within the Black Garden, which will take advantage of the player connection mechanics already used during the Garden of Salvation. Keep in mind that all puzzles will have to be done at once, so you won't be able to solve one, return to orbit and continue later.
First, jump behind the initial spawn area of the Salvation Garden to find an object that can only be interacted with the amplified decryption core obtained by completing the previous stages of the quest. This will activate all the puzzles within the raid and you can solve them together with a team of 5 other players. To get a visual reference, I leave you this video of the famous streamer Datto:
Go to the 3:10 minute to observe the secret room and then the various puzzles.
The first riddle is before the first step of the raid, you can see it in the video from 03:56. You will have to create a link between all the players from the activation point to a cross identical to the one that appears in front of the Sanctified Mind before its damage phase.
The second riddle is located after the first step of the raid and is visible in the video from 05:12. Again, follow the route taken and create a link between all the players.
The third riddle is in the platform zone after the first step of the raid and is visible from 07:53. This time you won't have to create a simple link between players, as you will also have to make all the "wires" cross the orange blocks that will appear in mid-air.
The fourth riddle is located in the arena of the Consecrated Mind (after you kill it) and is visible from 09:05. Also this time you will have to make your connection cross all the orange blocks.
The fifth riddle takes place in the same place and it's pretty easy to complete, but this time you'll have to be careful not to let any player die because four Supplicant Harpies will arrive and try to explode carrying at least one of your Guardians.
The sixth riddle is located near the place where you will face the Sanctified Mind and is visible from 11:25. It is again a simple link like the first two riddles.
The seventh and last riddle starts from the same point where the sixth begins and you will need to follow the following diagram:
- There will be six platforms and two blue knots.
- Order players from 1 to 6 and position yourself in this order.
- When you connect your players, the blue knots will tie together creating a pattern that will cross all platforms.
- You'll have to replicate the same pattern quickly. Sorting the players will simplify things because you can immediately understand in which order you will be placed by counting from the beginning of the tie.
- Repeat six more times with different patterns.
Now all that will remain is to complete the rest of the raid. Defeat the Sanctified Mind and you will receive a second crate containing Gods.
Thank you very much Datto for making this video containing the resolution of the seven puzzles (thank goodness Bungie is not fixed with a higher number) and we'll see you at the next guide. Remember that currently you can also get the exotic Death Bringer rocket launcher.
