Astral Alignment is the new 6-man matchmade activity in Destiny 2. The purpose of the activity is to charge the Wayfinder’s Compass in order to reactivate the Ley Lines in the Dreaming City. In this guide, we have detailed all there is to know about how to complete Astral Alignment in Destiny 2: Season of the Lost.
Destiny 2: Season of the Lost Astral Alignment
Astral Alignment is a multi-step activity that can be launched from the Dreaming City. Below, we have provided all there is to know about how to complete the Astral Alignment in Destiny 2:
Charge the Compass
This part of the activity takes place at the Blind Well. Clear the area of enemies and interact with the central terminal to teleport to the next location.
Collapse Taken Rifts
In addition to normal Taken enemies, multiple Taken Captains will appear in the area. Defeat this Taken Captain will cause it to drop a Taken Essence. It needs to be taken to a rift/plate in order to cleanse it – there is no need to press a button, just walking to a rift/plate with a Taken Essence should cleanse it automatically. Once all the rifts/plates have been cleansed, interact with the beacon to begin the next step.
Also, do note that there will be multiple Overload or Unstoppable in the area – bring the required mods.
Charge the Batteries or Prevent the Ether Harvest
This step either involves charging the batteries or preventing the Ether harvest – never both at the same time. This is a brief rundown of how it works:
- Prevent the Ether Harvest: Shoot the blue orbs that are flying toward the Harvester while defeating enemies.
- Charge the Batteries: Pick up and deposit batteries at the center of the area. A battery can only be picked up for 10-15 seconds before it must be picked up by another person.
The boss fight takes place in the Blind Well. To defeat the boss, clear the Taken Blights, grab the Taken Essence and use its Super on the boss. This will destroy the immunity shield on the boss, allowing the entire fireteam to deal damage until another immunity phase kicks in – there are 3 phases in total.
