'Destiny 2' Ascendant Challenge January 15 Guide - Location, Find Toland & Lore

Destiny 2 Ascendant Challenge Week 2 returns after Tuesday's Weekly Reset, and we're here to guide you through it. We'll tell you where the Challenge is located and reveal where you'll find the hidden lore and Toland.

Where is Destiny 2's January 15 Ascendant Challenge Located?

Head to the Dreaming City and make your way to the Gardens of Esila as shown on the map below. Go through Devalian Mists and take a right towards The Strand. Take another right from there, and you'll come to the Gardens of Esila.

Pop your Tincture of Queensfoil from doing activities around the Dreaming City, and you'll eventually come to this portal.

Completing the January 15 Ascendant Challenge

Once inside the portal you'll see three waypoints directing you toward three orbs. To complete the challenge, dunk all three of the orbs in the center of the arena. Once you do that, your last task is to clean out the rest of the adds to claim your reward.

Possible foes include:

  • Knights
  • Shadow Thralls
  • Taken Phalanx
  • Blights

While it's possible to ignore these enemies at first, it helps to use Tether to delay the chase as much as you can.

When you come to this orb towards the top, jump down to your left to find Toland.

After placing the orbs you begin the clear out phase. The dunk spot in the center turns into a Super well, which means you should be able to shred through everything. If teammates die, consider waiting for everyone to be spawned in the challenge room before getting your reward.
