Long story short I'm a returning player, mainly solo. Had a bunch of quests/pursuits to grind before shadowkeep. Had the taken anomaly quest, didn't get around to it before SK. After SK released, that pursuit has disappeared from my quest page and i haven't been able to get it back. Do you need the pursuit in your inventory/quest page to get the whisper to drop?
Hey there. No, you don't have to have the quest to get the Whisper of the Worm. You just need to complete the mission.
