'Destiny 2' Ascendant Challenge August 13 Guide: Gardens of Esila Egg & Toland Locations

Destiny 2 has another Ascendant Challenge for the week of August 13, and this time Guardians are headed to the Gardens of Esila. In this guide we'll reveal the location of the challenge and all its Eggs and lore. Want to make the most of Forfeit Shrine? We'll tell you how.

Where is Destiny 2's August 13 Ascendant Challenge Located

The Gardens of Esila are marked on the map below. Go through Devalian Mists and take a right towards The Strand. The Gardens of Esila are another right from there.

Provided you've popped some Tincture of Queensfoil (earned by doing activities around the Dreaming City) you'll eventually see this portal.

Completing the August 13 Ascendant Challenge

At the location, three waypoints direct you toward orbs. To complete the challenge, dunk the orbs in the center of the arena. Once you do, clear out the rest of the enemies and claim your reward.

Possible enemies include:

  • Taken Phalanx
  • Blights
  • Knights
  • Shadow Thralls

While you can ignore these at first, it's best to leverage Tether to hold off the chase for as long as possible.

You'll see this orb at the top. If you jump down to the left, Toland is waiting for you.

After placing the orbs the clearing phase begins. The dunk spot in the middle of the arena transforms into a Super well, so just keep blasting Supers until everything is gone. If teammates die, wait for everyone to respawn before opening the chest.

When you do, jump to the rock platform to the left of the door. At the edge of that platform, look down and you may see the glowing bone. Jump down there to get it.
