The latest Destiny update introduces a number of exciting Taken weapons and armor. This guide will help you land the 320 Legendary Dreadfang Sword, or the “Taken Sword”.
How To Get The Dreadfang Sword
Step 1: Head To The Reef
Once you have updated the game, head over to the Reef and speak to Variks, who will give you a mission called “Pretender To The Throne”.
Step 2: Pretender To The Throne mission
Enter orbit and fly on over to the Dreadnaught. When you’re here you’re looking for the Pretender To The Throne mission, which you can start at level 36. The mission in question isn’t particularly tough, and you can certainly beat it alone, although heading in with a Fireteam might up your time and get this all sorted a lot faster. Once you complete this mission you’ll unlock the “At The Gates” quest.
Step 3: Take Out Taken
The next step is to basically kill as many Taken on Patrol as you can, so that they’ll drop clues and help you find Malok. You’ll need to collect Echoes Of Malok, 20 all up.
Step 4: Visit Eris Morn
Take these echoes back to the Tower and speak to Eris Morn, who will provide you with the next bit of information to help you complete the At The Gates quest.
Step 5: Blighted Chalice Strike
If you have followed all of the above there should be a new strike on the Moon called Blighted Chalice Strike. Once again you’ll need to be level 36 or above to complete this. Team up for this and bring some Guardians with you.
Now, once you kick things off, focus on the Blights and kill them first so that respawns don’t start overpowering you. Once you’ve taken all of those out, Malok will appear and it’s time to earn your paycheck!
Step 6: Defeating Malok
Avoid his Shadow Touched ability at all costs because it will disorientate your Guardian. Find cover and then attack once the ffect dies down. Aim for the head here and with a team of Guardians you should be able to take him down with ease.
Step 7: Visit Variks
At this point you’ll need to return back to the Reef, where Variks will have your prize. You’ll earn the Dreadfang Legendary Sword and its spectacular 320 level rating.
