Shaping Extraction Quest Steps

Step 1) Equip Deepsight Weapon

The first thing you will need to do is to equip a Resonant weapon that comes from the Throne World, rituals, or other activities.

You will need to equip this weapon which you should have by the time you obtain the Shaping: Extraction quest.

Step 2) Complete The Weapon Objective

You will need to complete the weapon objective of your Resonant Weapon which will allow you to unlock its Pattern and Resonant Elements.

The Resonant Weapon objective can be checked by viewing the weapon’s tooltip.

Step 3) Extract Resonant Element

Now that the Resonant Weapon’s objective is complete, you may access it and extract the Resonant Element within it.

This can be done by viewing the weapon and selecting the Deepsight Resonance which will now have the option to claim the Resonant Elements.

This will also unlock the Pattern for the weapon you have just extracted Resonant Elements from, allowing you to shape it at the Relic in the Enclave.

  • Players can repeat the steps they did during this quest to unlock more patterns for other weapons.
  • Unlocking Resonant Elements is needed for crafting certain equipment, making it also a way to farm certain resources.


Now that you have learned how to extract Resonant Elements and obtain Patterns, you can start getting more with newer weapons.

This quest served mainly as an introduction to teach players how to prepare for weapons crafting with Patterns for weapons and Resonant Elements for crafting them.
