Ascendant Challenge This Week – Destiny 2

Last Updated on February 2, 2023

Ascendant Challenge is Dreaming City’s activity that players can complete every week to get Dreaming City Gear. The challenge location rotates every week and is confusing for new players. The planet is so big and finding certain locations would be difficult for the new light players, so this guide will help you out.

Dreaming City has three different curse cycles; Weak, Medium, and Strong. We can use the curse type for finding the location of Petra Venj, she is the vendor who will give you the Ascendant Challenge. Her locations are: The Strand for Weak Curse, Divilian Mists for Medium Curse, and Rehasilvia for Strong Curse.

Finding out the location is really easy, in this article we’ve added a map that you can use.

Ascendant Challenge Location This Week

This week’s challenge is Shattered Ruins. Head to Spine of Keres to complete this week’s challenge and collect your loot. I have updated the table for dates, you can also click the link given below for the guide on completing the challenge.


There are six locations where the Ascendant Challenge is; Bay of Drowned Wishes, Chamber of Starlight, Aphelion’s Rest, Gardens of Esila, Spine of Keres, and Harbinger’s Seclude. Locating these are easy, I will add YouTube videos with the exact location every week.

Note: Keep in mind that to see the Ascendant Portal, you need to use the Tincture of Queensfoil. You can purchase it from Petra if you don’t have it. Upon consuming it, you’ll be able to see a black portal that you can head inside.


Complete the challenge on all of your characters to collect Dreaming City loot from all three. I don’t really have good RNG by my side, so completing the challenge for the Retold Tale God Roll on all three characters helped. Ascendant chests also have higher chances of dropping exotics, I’ve got multiple exotics from these chests.

Too bad this doesn’t drop any pinnacle gear, dreaming city was an amazing source for leveling up. Do comment below if this article helped you out. We have more amazing destiny 2 content that you can check out – This Week’s Reset, Trove Guardian Location, Eververse’s Inventory and more.
