'Destiny 2' Ascendant Challenge May 21 Guide - Location, Find Toland & Lore

Destiny 2 has another Ascendant Challenge for the week of May 21 following the Weekly Reset. We'll explain where to find and how to complete the Gardens of Esila Ascendant Challenge. We'll also reveal all locations for lore and Toland.

Where is Destiny 2's May 21 Ascendant Challenge Located

In the Dreaming City, head to the Gardens of Esila 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.

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

Completing the May 21 Ascendant Challenge

At the location, you'll see three waypoints directing you toward orb locations. To complete the challenge, dunk the three orbs in the center of the arena. Once you do, clean out the rest of the enemies and claim your reward.

Possible foes include:

  • Shadow Thralls
  • Knights
  • Blights
  • Taken Phalanx

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

You'll come to this orb at the top. Jump down to your left to find Toland.

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 until everything is gone. If teammates die, wait for everyone to respawn before claiming the chest.

Lore and Toland Locations for May 21

Egg 1: From the exit portal, take the path to the right which takes you up. From there you'll see this egg.
