Ephemeral Engrams

In addition to Festival of the Lost rewards from Amanda Holliday and Festival of the Lost Triumphs, players will earn an Ephemeral Engram every time they fill their XP bar after achieving the max character level. This engram will be earned in addition to the Steadfast Engram, awarding players double Bright engrams for the duration of Festival of the Lost.

For information on Ephemeral Engrams and other Eververse bundles, players should visit Tess Everis in the Tower Courtyard in-game.

The Haunted Forest

Once players have completed the introductory quest available from Amanda Holliday, they will be granted access to the Haunted Forest. The Haunted Forest takes place in the Infinite Forest on Mercury, however Destiny 2: Curse of Osiris is not required to access this activity.

In order to launch into the Haunted Forest after it has been unlocked players must select the Haunted Forest node in the Tower destination map. Before launching, players may choose between two versions of the Haunted Forest:

  • Haunted Forest - Minimum Recommended Power 200
    • This standard version of the Haunted Forest features matchmaking, and will pair players until a Fireteam of three has been assembled.
  • Firewalled Haunted Forest - Minimum Recommended Power 200
    • In this version of the Haunted Forest, matchmaking is disabled. Players may enter the Haunted Forest solo, or with a pre-made Fireteam, but no additional team members will be matchmade into this activity.

Once players have entered the Haunted Forest, they will have 15 minutes to clear branches, defeat Nightmares, and collect Fragmented Souls. Players may then turn in Fragmented Souls to Amanda Holliday in the Tower Hangar for Festival of the Lost rewards.
