Destiny 2 Curse of Osiris Lost Prophecy Weapons (Weapon Crafting)
When Bungie revealed the Curse of Osiris DLC back a couple of weeks ago, you may have recalled seeing weapon crafting as being part of the package. After playing for some time, you may have realized there was nothing weapon crafting related throughout the DLC’s campaign. So how exactly does Lost Prophecies (weapon crafting) unlock in Curse of Osiris? Below I’ll show you how to unlock the Curse of Osiris Lost Prophecy Weapons.
What are Lost Prophecies?
Descriptive Text: “Osiris wrote his Lost Prophecies on these six-sided tablets, and hid within them a secret for the Guardian whose deeds he foresaw.”
Lost Prophecies are a way of acquiring “Prophecy Weapons” in Curse of Osiris. To unlock a Prophecy Weapon, you will need to carry around a Lost Prophecy in your inventory. The Lost Prophecy the player has in their inventory will contain Offering requirements. Offerings are rare drops from completing specific events. These events include things like Public Events, Strikes, The Crucible, etc. Once a player has given a Lost Prophecy the required Offerings, they can return to the Lighthouse and give it to Brother Vance. Brother Vance will give the player a Lost Prophecy Fulfilled which can be used at the forge in The Lighthouse. From the Lost Prophecy Fulfilled , players will receive a Prophecy Weapon.
Lost Prophecies Text:
Verse 1 – “Two Siblings cleaved by time and space, reflections never found alone, The ending of the eldritch race – a path long seen but never known.”
Verse 2 – coming soon
Verse 3 – “An army meets, and stands, and falls. Three nobles wage their hopeless war. In shifting madness, evil crawls. One stands above the battle’s roar.”
Verse 4 – “A charnel but effulgent orb – beacon in a loathsome dark – Feted, fetid corpses rise-a too-long-absent gibbous spark.”
Verse 5 – coming soon
Verse 6 – “Amid the endless death one flew – Unnatural all-consuming need – And in the space between the two, accursed comprehension freed.”
Verse 10 – “See who’s robed as if a god, who stands with pride above the rest! Destroy this ancient nameless fraud! Destroy the one whose death was blessed!”
Beat The Campaign
Before you will be able to unlock Lost Prophecies, you will need to have beaten the Curse of Osiris campaign. In total there are 8 levels to complete to do this. The levels are as follows (click the links for guides if interested):
- The Gateway
- A Deadly Trial
- Beyond Infinity
- Deep Storage
- Tree of Probabilities
- A Garden World
Complete all eight missions and return to Brother Vance to trigger the next step in unlocking Lost Prophecies.
After talking to Brother Vance upon completion of the campaign, you will receive a new adventure on Mercury. In total, you will need to complete three adventures for Brother Vance before being able to move on to the next step in unlocking Lost Prophecies. The three adventures you need to complete are:
- The Up and Up
- The Runner
- Bug in the System
After completing all three of the above adventures, you will once again return to Brother Vance. He will give some loot for your efforts and unlock Heroic versions of the adventures you completed. This will trigger the final step.
Complete an Heroic Adventure
You need to complete one Heroic adventure before Brother Vance with give you a Lost Prophecy. Talk to Brother Vance and select whichever mission you feel like completing on Heroic difficulty. Complete the Heroic Adventure and return once again to Brother Vance to receive Lost Prophecy, Verse 1. Complete the Lost Prophecy, Verse 1 to gain the option of being able to select from three Prophecies each time you select a new Prophecy to pursue.
Once you have access to Lost Prophecies, you can begin to fulfill the prophecies. To fulfill an equipped Lost Prophecy, you will need to collect enough offerings specific to that Lost Prophecy. To see what offerings the Lost Prophecy you have equipped requires, access your inventory and hover over the Lost Prophecy. This will show you the required offerings you need to fulfill your Lost Prophecy.
Acquiring offerings comes down to completing specific activities depending on which offering you are trying to collect:
- Advanced Paradox Amplifier (Green/Blue rarity) – A rare item acquired by completing strikes, Crucible matches, and Heroic adventures on Mercury.
- Concentrated Radiolarian Culture (Green/Blue rarity) – A rare item acquired from public event chests.
Offerings come in either green or blue variety. Green variety is far more common than the blue variety (I’ve gotten one blue across three Prophecy Weapons crafted). If you collect 10x green offerings, you can return to Brother Vance and exchange the 10x greens + Legendary Shards for 1 blue offering. Some offerings require collecting both types of offerings, while others only require one type. You have use the blue offering in you inventory (can be lost if not the required offering), much like a consumable, in order to fulfill the Lost Prophecy you have equipped.
