DISCLAIMER: All credit goes to MesaSean for the video above and for this cool glitch. I just want to share this so everyone can take advantage of this while it still works. IF you already know how this, this won't be new for you. Do you still need to getting your exotic swords? Do you hate crucible and want to avoid the crucible step at all costs? Well good news my fellow guardians, there is an answer to your prayers. There is a new glitch in town and it wants to help you. Watch the video above to learn the whole process. If you want the whole process listed out, keep on reading. Stuff you will need: *** 1 character who has already completed the sword quest once. (From start to finish) You will have to use this character for this glitch. *** Legendary marks. 25 marks for each sword that you will buy from lord shaxx. 3 marks to infuse the legendary sword. (More on that step in a moment) *** 1 (or two if you have to get two swords) legendary heavy weapon(s). They have to be at least 295 to get the sword to 280. *** Lots of motes of light PROCESS: Step 1: Log in into the character that you are going to do the sword quest on. Go to the tower. Step 2: Go to lord shaxx and buy a legendary sword.( If you need the bolt caster, buy a arc sword. If you need the dark drinker, buy a void sword. If you need the Raze Lighter, buy the solar sword.) Step 3: Equip the sword and infuse the sword with your legendary weapon. The sword has to be 280 to get the exotic quest. Step 4: Infuse the sword with motes of light. Do this until all of the nodes are unlocked . After this, "upgrade" the sword by activating the nodes. Make sure all nodes are unlocked and activated for the last step. Step 5: Go back to lord shaxx. He will give you the exotic sword quest. Here's the thing: By doing this, you will skip the crucible and killing ultras/ majors step. From here on out, you can finish the quest and get you exotic sword. Do you need to get another sword? Just repeat steps 2-5.
Reply for later, been back after a few months and just about to get my first exotic sword so this will help immensely.
