The Moon

  • The Moon, Earth’s only natural satellite, has been mostly occupied by the Hive and leftover Eliksni scavengers. 
  • Countless battles have taken place on Luna since over the years, with many losses on both sides.
  • Guardians have been exploring the Ocean of Storms region since the Age of Light, but more recently, the Hive have continued to resecure the area. 
Quick Lore − The Moon

The Moon (also known as Luna) is Earth’s only natural satellite. Like most of the celestial bodies in the Sol System, the Moon is littered with the ruins of humanity’s Golden Age. 

After the Collapse, the Moon was occupied by the Hive lead by Crota, a Hive Prince and son to Oryx, The Taken King. Up until the rise of newer Guardians in the Age of Light, countless Guardians were slain in their attempt to reclaim the Moon from the Hive. Most notable occupations against the Hive included the Battle of Burning Lake, the Great Disaster, and the failed mission of Eris’ Fireteam

During the Age of Light, Guardians managed to establish control over the Ocean of Storms and eventually destroyed Crota. This caused Oryx, The Taken King, to arrive in Sol to attack the Guardians and the Traveler – which was ultimately thwarted by Guardians during the Taken War.

During the Red War when Guardians lost their light, there had been significantly less Guardian Presence on the Moon, allowing the Hive to re-establish a foothold over the region once reclaimed by Guardians. Following the discovery of a new fortress near the Hellmouth, the Guardians made a return. 

In doing so, they discovered a massive black Pyramid structure beneath the keep, unveiled due to the recent Hive activity. Some of this dark power swept through the Solar System, creating Nightmare phantoms that took on the form of the Guardians’ worst foes. Further complications arose, with a signal being sent from the Pyramid to the Vex Black Garden, causing the Vex to invade the Moon. This was eventually stopped when Guardians infiltrated the portal network with the help of Ikora Rey and the Tower and killed the Undying Mind, the root cause of the attack.

Nowadays, a Hidden Swarm under the control of Xivu Arath, The God of War, has been active and causing disruptive activity on the Moon and beyond. Osiris had attempted to stop this, but his Ghost Sagira was killed in battle, and Osiris was forced to retreat.

Eris Morn's Inventory

Weekly & Daily Bounties

As with most vendors, Eris also offers (after campaign) Weekly and Daily bounties for Guardians to complete, which reward XP gains and materials. Additional Bounties are also offered that reward smaller XP gains. Her two weekly bounties are static each week and reward unique items in addition to the large sum of XP:

  • Slow Wave Disruption: Complete 7 Waves of the Altar of Sorrow event.
    • Rewards: Hymn of Desecration
      Greatly increases the chance of a weapon drop from your next Necropolis or Chamber of Suffering encounter in the Pit of Heresy.

      The effect lasts until the dungeon encounter is completed.

  • Lunar Spelunker: Complete the K1 Crews Quarters, K1 Logistics, and K1 Communion Lost Sectors.

Missions & Quests

As you progress through the Shadowkeep campaign and beyond, Eris Morn will task you with recovering items from her lost Fireteam, recovering lost Ghosts, and additional quests that will earn you sweet previous loot!

Moon: Daily Bounty
Moon: Additional Bounties

Moon Missions

The Lectern of Enchantment

After completing most of the Shadowkeep campaign, you gain access to the Lectern of Enchantment and its capabilities. 

Weekly & Daily Bounties

Like Eris, the Lectern offers Weekly and Daily bounties, which can typically be completed in Nightmare Hunts and Lost Sectors. Additional bounties can be obtained and they are specific to Nightmare Hunts. The two Weekly Bounties are static and reward XP and a Phantasmal Core:

  • Nightmare Sojourner: Defeat Nightmares in Lost Sectors across the solar system. Nightmares defeated on the Moon only grant reduced progress.
    • Altars of Sorrow Nightmares also contribute to this bounty! 
    • While the Moon does have reduced progress, by the time you complete the other Weeklies on the Moon, you will complete this one too!
  • Nightmare Hunter: Defeat Nightmares in Nightmare Hunts.

Essence Quests

Using Phantasmal Cores, you can purchase Essence Quests which can be “cleansed” by completing the quest objectives provided. Essences are obtained originally by progressing through the Shadowkeep Campaign. More are provided post-campaign..  


Items found on the Moon

Helium Filaments

A destination material exclusive to The Moon. This material can be found out in the wild, in chests, or as rewards from various sources. 

Phantasmal Fragment

Residual Nightmare energy, used at the Lectern of Enchantment in Sanctuary to purchase items and to create Phantasmal Cores. 

Phantasmal Core

Coalesced Nightmare energy, traded at the Lectern of Enchantment in Sanctuary for Essence Quests. Can be converted back to Fragments if needed.

Essence Quest

Obtained via the Lectern of Enchantment or found out in the wild. Cleanse the Essence by completing the specified objective to earn rewards. 

Hymn of Desecration

A consumable that greatly increases the chance of a weapon drop from your next Necropolis or Chamber of Suffering encounter in the Pit of Heresy.

Firewall Data Fragment

A Quest Objective item that opens the system core vault in the K1 Revelation Lost Sector. Obtained by completing the Lunar Spelunker Weekly Bounty.

Rice Cake

A tasty gift. Used as an offering for Jade Rabbit Statues that can be found across the Ocean of Storms. Use Braytech Maps to locate these statues!

Lost Ghost Trace

A Loc pulse from a Ghost. Present this to Eris to extract its last known location on the Moon. Eris will provide a quest to help retrieve the Lost Ghost.

The Secrets of the Moon

The Tire Game

Located in Sanctuary, The Tire Game, when triggered (costs 5 Helium Filaments), requires you to roll a tire down a hill and try to land it on one of four different craters. Each of these craters carries a different point value, with the larger craters giving the fewest points. This is more of a fun little game and can complete a Shadowkeep Triumph.

Trove Guardians

Each Week, there are secret enemies that spawn in either Archer’s Line, Anchor of Light or the Hellmouth. Trove Guardians are Sword Knights that, when defeated, will provide access to invisible platforms that lead to a secret chest. 

Orbital Cartographer Secret Emblem
