Destiny 2 Enigmatic Mysteries Guide – Two Enigmatic Mysteries Locations

Destiny 2 Season of the Lost is here and we’re heading back to The Dreaming City. Acting as a prologue to The Witch Queen expansion, this season revolves around freeing Savathun from her worm god to save Osiris from her clutches. Along with a new seasonal activity, players can also obtain new armor, weapons, exotics, and in-game consumables. Just like last week, players will need to venture into the Shattered Realm to discover mysteries so they can finish their weekly challenge. One of the tasks tied to the Ley Line Secrets Challenge asks players to find two Enigmatic Mysteries somewhere in the Shattered Realm. While you are technically supposed to wait until next week to finish this, you can actually complete this step right now.

Enigmatic Mysteries Locations

Enigmatic Mystery 1

The first Enigmatic Mystery requires you to possess the True Sight upgrade from the Wayfinder’s Compass. This is obtained by completing week two of the Wayfinder’s Voyage sidequest given out at the H.E.L.M. Once you purchase the upgrade, head into the Shattered Realm: Debris of Dreams and align the first beacon as you normally would. After you finish, head out of the circular structure and face the large building you came from on the right. You should see a large metal fan on a platform surrounded by some Scorn.

Make your way to this fan, kill the Scorn outside, and hop down into the pit. You will become slowed and swarmed by enemies. Dispatch them and approach the True Sight totem resting on the ledge just above you. Activating the True Sight totem will cause a bunch of floating platforms to appear (shown above) so climb up to them until you reach the chest. Opening the chest will complete your first Enigmatic Mystery.

Enigmatic Mystery 2

Okay, here’s where things get weird. Before we dive into it, all the credit for discovering this cheese goes to Youtuber December who’s video is shown above. To make this possible you will need a sword and a Warlock rocking top tree Dawnbreaker. It may be possible to do this on other classes, but I had the most success on my Warlock when I was testing this. Additionally, there are a few ways to reach this chest without unlocking the Safe Passage upgrade, but this was far and away the easiest.

Make your way out of the first beacon room and approach the True Sight totem by the cliffs. Activate this ability to spawn a chain of platforms in front of you that leads to another floating island. Go to the island d before the True Sight buff vanishes and kill all the Screebs hanging around. In this area, you are supposed to use the Safe Passage upgrade to remove the Slow debuff, but this isn’t unlocked until next week and we’re impatient Guardians.

On this island you will see a True Sight totem on a cliff just above you. Climb onto the nearest rock, pull out your sword, and jump towards it. While in the air, perform a light attack with your sword to dash forward enough to grab the edge. Keep in mind you will want a sword that has a default ariel slash, otherwise, this won’t work. Once you are by the totem, activate True Sight and jump onto the ledge that spawns.

Here’s where things get tricky because you will need to jump across to a ledge on your left instead of climbing up the platform in front of you. Run towards the edge, jump off, perform a sword mid-air light attack, Icarus Dash, and then do another air slash. This should, if chained fast enough, give you enough speed and momentum to cross the gap. It will take a few tries, so just practice the motions until you can do it without thinking. You can see an example of this in December’s video at the top of this section.

Once you cross the gap, climb up the cliffside, run to the top, and you should get there with only a couple of seconds left. Open the chest before the timer hits zero to unlock your second Enigmatic Mystery. The hardest part of this entire secret is performing all the steps within the time limit. However, it’s more than possible once you memorize where to jump, dash, and climb. If this is proving too difficult you will, unfortunately, need to wait until next week (probably) to finish this challenge.
