The Wayfinder’s Compass

The Wayfinder’s Compass is known to lead those who hold it to certain things that they are not intentionally drawn to.

For the player, it seems that the Wayfinder’s Compass is meant to lead them to a certain goal that will keep unfolding as they progress through the story of Season 15.

Once the Wayfinder’s Compass has been obtained by one of your characters, the others will not be required to get it as it is shared.

How To Get The Wayfinder’s Compass?

The Wayfinder’s Compass is obtained during the Mission Cocoon and is obtained at the ends, unlocking the Wayfinder’s Compass.

To participate in the Season of the 15 story, players may be required to purchase the Season of the Lost season pass to unlock the artifact and more.

The Wayfinder’s Compass may be leveled up when your character progresses throughout the season, which includes killing enemies, doing activities, or going along with the story.

There are certain seasonal challenges (for those with the season pass) that will allow players to earn more levels with the Wayfinder’s Compass.
