Ascendant Challenge This Week

Ascendant Challenge is a perk that you unlock when you reach Dreaming City and are tied to its Plane. Every week, you will get a single portal at different locations where you’ll get a gear. Now, finding these locations can be very confusing for new players so, we are providing you with all the information regarding the ascendant Challenge this week which brings you closer to claiming that D2 gear.

Destiny 2 ascendant challenge this week

The world merchant for Dreaming City is Petra Venj. To enter into it, one must own and achieve the Forsaken DLC campaign. After that, Petra Venj will welcome you to Dreaming City which has three different curse cycles that are-

  • Weak
  • Medium
  • Strong

The level of curse determines the location for you. We can use the cursing type for locating Petra Venj; she is the vendor who will give you the dare. Her locations are:

  • Weak Curse- The Strand
  • Medium Curse- Divalian Mists
  • Strong Curse – Rehasilvia

You can locate Petra Venj at the Strand, and you get to the Strand by spawning at Divalian Mists. Then go to the location when Petra Venj arrives on The Strand. Then, to get to the Ascendant portal, you have to reach directly at the boss area of the Lost Sector where you’ll have to use the tincture of Queensfoil before entering. (discussed below).

Ascendant challenge location this week

This week’s Challenge is Forfeit Shrine, and the cursing type is Weak. You need to head to Garden of Esila to complete this week’s dare and collect your loot.

There are some set locations as well, and you will find them rotating every week. So, these are-

  • Bay of Drowned Wishes
  • Gardens of Esila
  • Spine of Keres
  • Harbinger’s Seclude
  • Chamber of Starlight
  • Aphelion’s Rest

Also, the challenge location is good for farming dreaming exclusive city weapons and with higher chances of finding exotic loots. So, make sure you complete the challenges to avail the offers.

Note: To see the Ascendant Portal, need to pop a Tincture of Queensfoil which can be bought from Petra in case you don’t have it. After consuming it, you’ll be able to see a black portal that you can head inside but remember, this tincture only works for a 30-minute duration and will run out when switch maps.

  • The location of the Destiny 2 today – Aphelion’s Rest Lost Sector at The Strand.

D2 today, which can be found while exploring the Dreaming City, not only provides you access in the end game patrol space but also showers you with Petra’s bounties.

Destiny 2 what are challenges?

Since The Destiny 2 Challenge for this week is called Shattered Ruins and the location is the Spine of Keres, so begin by spawning at Divalian Mists and make your way towards the Spine of Keres. Now, this is a vast location and can be confusing for people who are new to this game, but remember that the Ascendant portal sits at a very tiny corner in this broad area so, make sure you find the exact location.

What happens if you die during a challenge?

Don’t worry if you die during any challenge, because it will reset and you’ll respawn close enough by outside that you can easily have more attempts before the Tincture of Queensfoil ends.


These D2 challenges are a great way to have excellent and exotic gears, so, we hope you complete the Ascendant Challenge this week bearing in mind that the weekly challenges only last for seven days and the weekly reset happens every Tuesday. Good luck!
