Thorn Year 3 Exotic Weapon Quest
Here is the Thorn Year 3 Exotic Weapon Quest breakdown. Take a look if you would like to know what is involved with the quest. It’s very similar to the Thorn bounty from year one, so if you were around for that in year one, you should be fine.
How to get started (In order to get the Thorn quest, you must have Destiny’s Rise of Iron expansion)
At the Iron Temple, Shiro-4 offers you four weekly Iron Bounties. After completing the bounties, you can turn them in to receive the rewards. When turning one of these bounties in, the bounty has a small chance of turning into something called “Jagged Purpose”. When/If that happens, it shows up in the Mission section on your inventory page. This is beginning of the Thorn Year 3 Exotic Weapon Quest. The thumbnail reads,”A jagged and angry shard. It seethes with a festering sickness. Faint, yet deadly. Eris may have interest in such a vile thing.” So head to Eris at the Tower to see what needs to be done to complete the quest.
A light in the dark
The Thorn Quest is called, “A light in the Dark”. Step one “Echoes of Darkness”. In order to complete the first step you must do “The Wretched Eye” strike on any difficulty. Just head to the strike on Earth and knock it out. It is always Matchmaking so you should have no trouble taking care of Kovik and his blind Ogre.
Harvest of the Lesser
Step two is called “Harvest of the Lesser” and the details say, “Wipe out Fallen in the Plaguelands to feed the weapon’s appetite.” In short just defeat Fallen enemies in the Plaguelands. Any Fallen, any type of interaction, so long as it’s in the Plaguelands. One Fallen enemy roughly equates to 1% of completing the quest.
Feast Upon the Light
Step three is called “Feat Upon the Light” and the details say, “Use Void Damage to defeat Guardians in the Crucible.” It’s pretty straight forward. Just use Void damage from any source and get kills in the Crucible. Weapons, Supers, Grenades and Melee’s all work towards completing this step. If you were to grind this out it wouldn’t take you more that an hour, maybe two, to take care of this step so do be discouraged if you’re not the biggest fan the Crucible.
Cleansed by the Light
Step four is called “Cleansed by the Light” and the details say, “Consume Motes of Light to cleanse yourself and the weapon.” By far the easiest step of any quest in Destiny. Just consume five Motes of Light and you are all set!
Where It Began
Final Step! You must first complete the Strike,”The Abomination Heist”. Then after the Strike, you need to open the chest at the end. In order to open the chest, you must have a Skeleton Key. Skeleton Key’s randomly drop at the end of Strikes as a reward. Make sure you have one of these before you start the Strike, because there is no guarantee that one will drop at the end of that particular Strike. Also, make sure that you have an open slot on your primary weapons. Also, just in case.
Open the chest and receive your Year 3 Thorn!
