Destiny 2 Toil and Trouble Quest Steps

The Toil and Trouble Quest involves the arrival of the Guardian at Savathun’s Throne World, where they attempt to find Savathun’s Spire.

It is believed that she did many experiments on the Light which led to its abuse but a way to defeat The Witness may be found here.

Guardians will have to fight their way to Savathun’s Spire and use magic to reveal it so they can begin their exploration within.

How To Get Toil and Trouble Quest?

The Toil and Trouble Quest becomes available the moment players log in after the Season of the Witch update has begun, forcing them into the first mission, Way of the Witch.

This can be accessed later in the Quests Menu as it will already be added to players, which can help track their progress, especially if they dropped out of the first mission.

Step 1: Complete the “Way of the Witch” mission

The Way of the Watch mission becomes the first available mission and you are placed right into it after logging in after the update.

If you experience the Cabbage Error, you can start the mission by visiting the H.E.L.M. in the Destinations Menu and selecting the mission.

  • Complete Way of the Witch Mission

Step 2: Reveal the secrets of the Hive by completing Savathun’s Spire

You will need to complete the Savathun’s Spire Seasonal Activity, which has replaced the Way of the Witch mission as you have already completed it.

This requires that you join up with a team (matchmaking) and complete the objectives to reveal the secrets regarding Savathun’s experiments.

  • Complete Savathun’s Spire

Step 3: Investigate the portal in the southern wing of the H.E.L.M.Investigating the portal in the southern wing of the H.E.L.M

Head over to the H.E.L.M. and go south to reach the portal (this is marked if you track the quest) so that you can interact with it.

The ground will have magic in a small circle that you must approach and interact with to Invoke Hive Magic, which will open up the portal.

  • Use Hive Magic to open the portal 

Step 4: Contact Eris

You will need to head into the portal that you have just opened and this will take you to the Athenaeum, which is Eris Morn’s very own secured spot in Savathun’s Throne World.

After entering the portal, head to the marked area and interact with the energy in the center to start a cutscene where you speak with Eris Morn. (She is in her Hive form)

  • Speak to Eris Morn

Step 5: Visit the Lectern of Divination in the Athenaeum

Once you have spoken to Eris Morn, you will need to interact with the Lectern of Divination, which can be found nearby and will be marked by a waypoint.

  • Visit Lectern of Divination

Step 6: Visit the Ritual Table in the Athenaeum

The Ritual Table is right across the Lectern of Divination and you will need to interact with it to complete the Toil and Trouble Quest.

  • Visit Ritual Table

Toil and Trouble Quest Rewards

Completing the Toil and Trouble Quest will have previously given you a sample Witch’s Weapons Engram as you finish the last quest step.

After completing the Toil and Trouble Quest, the Seasonal Quest called The Bladed Path will be available in your Quests Menu.


The journey to defeating The Witness has come at high costs and even Eris Morn has revealed her alternate form, which means things are getting serious.

Now that you have revealed and breached Savathun’s Spire, you may continue to delve within to further master your magic and discover more that can help you fight The Witness.

The Bladed Path is now revealed and you will need to continue making an effort to prepare for the fight against one of the most powerful beings that you have ever encountered.
