'Destiny 2' Ascendant Challenge January 21 Guide: Aphelion's Rest Egg & Toland Locations

Destiny 2 features a newly rotated Ascendant Challenge for the week of January 21 following Tuesday's Weekly Reset. If you're still hunting for a path toward Powerful Gear, here are the egg and lore locations you must know to finish the Ouroborea at Aphelion's Rest.

Where is Destiny 2's January 21 Ascendant Challenge Located?

The Ascendant Challenge for January 21 is located in the Aphelion's Rest Lost Sector marked on the map below. It's located at Paetra's spawn spot in the Strand.

Pop your Tincture of Queensfoil (purchased at Huggin's or earned in-game around the Dreaming City) and head to the back of the Lost Sector. The Portal will be waiting for you there.

Completing the January 21 Ascendant Challenge

The goal of the Ouroborea challenge is to kill four Blights in the arena to "break the seal" of the crystals in the center. There are two Blights in the corners and another two close to the entrance. Just use a high-power Exotic to take down the Blights and avoid the Knights' slam attacks to survive.

After taking out the Blights, text that reads "the opportunity" will appear on screen. When that happens, grab a Shotgun and shoot at the crystals in the center of the room. To do maximum damage, just stay mobile in a circular fashion and avoid the Knights' attacks. Rotate around the circular area and move your way in. Eventually you'll do enough damage to earn your reward.

Lore and Toland Locations for January 21

Once you've finished the challenge you can start looking for Toland and additional lore locations around the arena. As always, use the Wish-Ender bow to collect the eggs.

Egg 1: From the big Awoken statue, go to the left and you'll reach a large circular platform with two broken staircases attached to it. You'll see a staircase headed downward, next to another one that's facing up. Hop on the upward one and you'll see a glowing egg in the distance to the left.

Egg 2: From the back right-hand side of the arena, you'll see this strange tree in a sandy area. In the distance behind it is a glowing egg.

Egg 3: To the left of that tree is a straightaway path that eventually curves. Along the curve, you'll see a gazebo. Hop to it and make your way to a large, circular platform. You'll see these large columns with the egg inside.

Ahamkara Bone: Go back to the two staircases where you found Egg 1. Go up the upward staircase and into the area with columns. Hop atop this column to reach a crawlspace to the roof.

You'll see a statue with a glittering bone on top. You don't need the Wish-Ender to pick it up. That's all you need to know to figure out this week's Ascendant Challenge.

Destiny 2 is available now on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
