Wishing All the Best Quest Steps (Week 5)

With The Witness still lingering out in the system, The Vanguard has been left with no choice but to make a bargain with the Ahamkara called Riven.

This sets the Guardian out to assist in completing requests made by the mythical creature, which is part of its plan to release its brethren once more.

You will need to stick to the plans made by Mara Sov until she finds a backup plan but until then, you are to keep the alliance you have with the creature.

Wishing All the Best Week 1 Quest Steps

Step 1: Speak to Riven

After you obtain the seasonal quest from Mara Sov, you will need to make your way to Riven, who can be found beyond a portal in the same room.

Interact with the Spirit of Riven and she will begin to speak about the missing eggs, which you will need to find throughout the season.

  • Visit Riven

Step 2: Search for Riven’s eggs in Riven’s Lair

Once you have spoken to Riven, a new activity called Riven’s Lair will be accessible and you will have to complete it to progress with the quest.

Riven’s Lair is an arena that has players going through a series of traps and fighting their way past trespassers to find eggs at the end of the activity.

Step 3: Speak with Petra at the holoprojector

The Techeuns have made valuable findings, and you will need to speak to Petra about them by visiting the Holoprojector in the H.E.L.M.

Petra speaks about how Riven’s clutch has dispersed across the Ley Lines of the Ascendant Realm, which means they now orbit the reality that you are in.

  • Visit Holoprojector

Step 4: Complete Blind Well Runs in The Dreaming City

The Ley Lines are not in the right position and to put them back in their place, you will need to participate in the Blind Well activity. (Found in the Dreaming City)

You will need to complete 1 or 2 runs depending on the difficulty that you choose and will be matched with other players. (Start from the quest menu, destination or by visiting the Blind Well)

  • Complete Blind Well runs (Reach 100% progress)

Step 5: Complete the mission “Polysemy” and retrieve Riven’s egg.

After you had previously repositioned the Ley Lines, Riven has detected one of her eggs and you will need to enter her lair to retrieve it.

Polysemy is a solo mission, which is very similar to the Riven’s Lair activity, and this is often done solo by players but is easier to complete.

  • Complete Polysemy mission

Step 6: Listen to Mara and Osiris in the H.E.L.M.

Mara has doubts about Riven and is planning to find an alternate solution rather than fulfilling her end of the bargain due to the problems that may occur.

She and Osiris are meeting up below where you first found her during the start of the season, and you may witness their conversation there. (Head down the stairs)

  • Observe Mara and Osiris’s conversation

Step 7: Speak to Riven

Being successful in retrieving the first Ahamkara egg was the first step to completing the bargain struck with Riven but there is more that needs to be done.

Head over to the Spirit’s Anchor, which is beyond the portal in the H.E.L.M., and listen to what Riven has to say. (She reveals that she knows Mara Sov is trying to find another way)

  • Visit Riven

Step 8: END OF WEEK 1

Mara has her Techeuns on a tight schedule as they continue calculating the trajectory of Riven’s clutch while they move between realities.

You will need to continue aiding Riven’s Lairs against trespassers to buy more time for the Vanguard.

  • Defeat Combatants with your element

Upon reaching Riven, she welcomes you back and informs you that another egg has been discovered, which you must now retrieve in the Tautology mission.

Step 11: Speak with Petra at the holoprojector

Petra acknowledges your current success with retrieving Riven’s Eggs but time will not be enough if the current path does not change.

She informs you about how Queen Mara and her Techeuns once communed with Harbingers who were entities capable of traversing Ley Lines.

Petra tells you about a Starlight Lodestone that is needed, which you will need to retrieve next so that Queen Mara may signal the Harbinger.

  • Visit holoprojector

Step 12: Complete the Chamber of Starlight Lost Sector in the Dreaming City

The Starlight Lodestone appears to be located in a Lost Sector that is hidden away in the Dreaming City and you will need to retrieve it.

This can be obtained by heading to the Chamber of Starlight and defeating the boss within to get the Cache Code to open the nearby Boss Cache.

After opening the cache, you will have obtained the Starlight Lodestone and may head back to the H.E.L.M. to continue.

  • Complete Chamber of Starlight Lost Sector

Step 13: Meet with Crow and Petra

Crow and Petra seem to be uneasy about the situation and Crow is already seeing what bad things may come of the bargain.

You should go to them under where Queen Amara is usually sitting by heading down the stairs and may listen to their conversation once you find them.

  • Observe Crow and Petra’s discussion

Step 14: Speak with Osiris at the holoprojector

Step 15: Speak to Riven

After your recent efforts, Riven would like to speak with you once more to discuss the progress that you have been making so far.

  • Visit Riven

Step 16: END OF WEEK 2

With another egg obtained, Riven is starting to see that you have a great purpose in fulfilling the bargain and expects continuous success from you.

Locating her eggs will still need time and while Mara’s Techeuns continue to search for them, you will need to wait for Riven to summon you once more.

Step 18: Calibrate the Starlight Lodestone

The Starlight Lodestone needs to be prepped once more and this can be done in The Coil, where you will need to obtain Wishing Glass Shards.

These can be obtained as you play through The Coil activity and will often be rewarded at the end of a path, opening hidden chests, dropped by defeated enemies, or destroying pots.

  • Calibrate Starlight Lodestone (Reach 100% progress)

  • Visit Holoprojector

Step 24: Speak to Riven

It seems that with everything that is happening to the Sov Siblings (Mara and Crow), Riven also has something to say about what has happened.

  • Speak to Riven

Step 25: End of Week 3

After everything that you have witnessed, it looks like everyone is moving on from the past and moving forward with the task at hand.
