Destiny 2 Lantern of Osiris Guide – All Seasonal Artifact Mods, A Matter of Time Quest

It’s that time Guardians. With Season of the Undying coming to an end, so too does the Gate Lord’s Eye. That means saying goodbye to the Destiny 2 Void and Arc class mods and to the weapon mods which favored auto rifles and SMGs. The Season of Dawn artifact, the Lantern of Osiris, is set to debut soon and with it comes yet another build rotation to make.

This time around the artifact seems encourage players to use scout rifles, pulse rifles, and bows. Better break out that Subtle Calamity in your vault!

Unfamiliar with Seasonal Artifacts? We’ve got a rundown below including what they are, how they work, and what buffs they provide.

How to Unlock and Rank Up the Lantern of Osiris Seasonal Artifact

You unlock the Lantern of Osiris through the A Matter of Time quest. You can start it by speaking to Ikora on the Tower. She’ll send you to Osiris on Mercury. He’s not in a Patrol though. You’ll need to visit the dedicated Disturbance on Mercury location. Here are the steps we have:

  1. Visit Ikora in the Tower.
  2. Disturbance on Mercury location.
  3. Defeat 50 Cabal on the Tangled Shore. Solar increases progress.
  4. Bank the materials at the Tangled Shore Obelisk.
  5. Charge the obelisk by defeating enemies with abilities and Supers and by collecting Orbs of Light.
  6. Bank the charge at the Tangled Shore Obelisk.
  7. Interact with the Obelisk.
  8. Return to Osiris.
  9. Complete a Sundial run.

After you’ve done all of this, Osiris will give you his lantern!

Once you’ve unlocked it, you’ll need some time to actually upgrade the artifact itself. The artifact has an infinite number of levels which can advance your Power Level to above 960. Artifact levels will cost more and more XP as you increase its power. If you’ve spent a bunch of time upgrading last season’s Gate Lord’s Eye, those levels will vanish and you’ll need to start the process again.

Lantern of Osiris Mods – Seasonal Artifact Mods

Long before you hit the hard level cap you’ll unlock each of the different mod tiers. In total you’ll be able too select up to 12 artifact mods to have unlocked at any given point. Keep in mind that because of the unlock limitations, at most, you can have two of the final column mods unlocked.

It’s worth noting that just like the Gate Lord’s Eye just did, the Lantern of Osiris expires at the end of this season. It will take all of your power bonus and seasonal mods with it. Thankfully, artifact progress is shared across all of your characters! At the very least you won’t have to rank it up multiple times in the same season.
