Destiny 2 Essence of Anguish Quest Steps

Destiny 2 Essence of Anguish Quest

Eris Morn speaks of how anguish can press down upon oneself and just like other Essences, the Essence of Anguish must be cleansed.

You will need to complete bounties to cleanse the Essence of Anguish and once finished, you will head back to Eris Morn.

This quest allows you to obtain another piece of the Dreambane Armor, this time its will be the leg gear as a reward.

How To Get Essence of Anguish Quest?

You will obtain the Essence of Anguish quest after you defeat the Nightmare of Omnigul, which happens as you follow with the Legacy: Shadowkeep campaign.

Essence of Anguish Quest Steps

Step 1: Complete Bounties

The first step to cleansing the Essence of Anguish is simple, all you have to do is complete bounties which can be obtained from Eris Morn.

You may choose several bounties for a faster chance to complete this quest step quickly.

Step 2: Return to Eris Morn

Once the Essence has been cleansed, head back to Eris Morn but this time she will tell you that the Essence cannot be transformed yet.

The two of you will need to find a solution to this, which eventually leads to another mission during the quest.

You will need to obtain the Hive Cryptoglyph before you can continue making Dreambane Armor, and this is done by doing the “In The Deep” mission.

Step 3: Infuse Eris’s Magic with Nightmare Essence

After you have obtained the Hive Cryptoglyph, head over to the Lectern of Enchantment in the Sanctuary to the left of Eris Morn.

Interact with it and you will be able to obtain a new set of Dreambane leg armor, completing the mission in the process.
