Trying to figure out how to get Divinity in Destiny 2? Yeah, it’s something of a hot topic in 2022. Despite coming out with the Garden of Salvation raid during Shadowkeep, it’s still at the top of the endgame PvE META. Divinity is so powerful, in fact, that certain high-profile members of the Destiny 2 community have called for it to be nerfed. Before that happens, you need to figure out how to get Divinity for yourself.
We’re going to go through the entire process of getting your hands on Divinity. It’s long, arduous, complicated, and requires you to socialize – so don’t expect this to be an easy ride.
Destiny 2 – How to Get Divinity (2022)
Step 1 – Get the Divine Fragmentation Quest
You know you’re in for a tough time when even the process to get the quest is complicated – but that’s how you get Divinity in Destiny 2.
First, you’re going to have to make your way to the Lunar Battlegrounds on the moon. This is the place where you first started the Shadowkeep campaign. To get there, head through the passage South under Sorrow’s Harbor.
Pull a hard left once you transition out of Sorrow’s Harbor and into the Lunar Battlegrounds. Follow the cliffside until you find a cave, then go inside it. Follow this cave down to an absolutely massive Vex gate – similar to the Gate Lord Vex gate from Destiny 1.
Here, you’ll be fighting three waves of Vex. There’s nothing too difficult about this – just kill them all. Once you’re done, a final boss will spawn in. Kill him, and he’ll drop an Exotic Engram. No, this isn’t Divinity – if only it was that easy.
Pick up the Exotic and you’ll get an item titled “What’s This?… What’s This?” This item will start the Divinity quest.
Step 2 – Lost Sector Oracles
With that Exotic item in hand, your next stop is Nessus. You’re going to be completing three Lost Sectors on the planet. Each Lost Sector will have a hidden alcove with an Oracle. Interact with that Oracle then kill the Vex that spawn in as a result. Once they’re dead, interact with the Oracle again to complete that Lost Sector.
The three Lost Sectors you need to do this for are:
- The Orrery in Artifact’s Edge
- Ancient’s Haunt in the Tangle
- The Conflux in the Cistern
If you’re struggling to find the Oracles in any given Lost Sector, have a look at the YouTube video above by Serg Unleashed where they highlight the route through each sector.
Step 3 – Massacre the Vex
Once you’ve dealt with all three Oracles, you’ll need to collect 120 Decryption Core Fragments. These are dropped by Vex on the moon – so get to grinding. There used to be more Vex-based activities on the moon, but they’ve since been sunset from the game. This has led to a lot of people wondering how to get Divinity in 2022 – but there’s an easy alternative.
All you have to do is head back to the cave where you initially got the Divinity quest. Kill the Vex there again and reload the zone between runs. It shouldn’t take you too long to get all the Core Fragments you need using this strategy.
Step 4 – Complete the Garden of Salvation Puzzles
After collecting 120 Decryption Core Fragments, you’ve got to do the hardest part of this entire process – completing Garden of Salvation (GoS) with the extra hidden Divinity puzzles.
Obviously, you’re going to need a full Fireteam to do this. If you’ve never done a regular Garden of Salvation raid before, then you’re also going to need to find a Sherpa run.
Sherpa runs are raid playthroughs where a dedicated Guardian is teaching new players how to complete a given raid. You can find these on the Destiny 2 Sherpa subreddit, organized in larger clans, and through regular Discord LFGs. If you’ve never had any experience with any of these – you’ll need to dip your toes in the water to complete this quest step and get Divinity.
You’ll need all the members of your Fireteam to cooperate with the Divinity puzzle. 99% of Guardians looking to do a regular GoS won’t be willing to do the puzzles with you – so you’ll need to book yourself into a Divinity-specific run of the raid. Luckily, these are fairly common, so keep your eye on the channels mentioned above and jump whenever the opportunity for it arises.
In one of these Sherpa runs, the Sherpa guiding you through the raid will tell you what to do for each specific puzzle. There are seven in total, each of which involves tethering a current through players from one point to another. Each puzzle escalates in difficulty and complexity.
If you want to have a look at this process for yourself in advance, check out the video above by Br00klynBound on YouTube. Don’t worry about memorizing the specificities, though.
That’s pretty much all there is to it. Unfortunately, you’ll need to get your feet wet in one of the Destiny 2 LFGs to get Divinity – which might put some people off. There’s no way to complete the quest solo, though, so that’s a bullet you’ll just have to swallow.
