how to get the 3rd seed of light

Everyone Can Now Get Their Third Seed Of Light Subclass Unlock In ‘Destiny 2,’ Here’s How

There is almost too much stuff happening in Destiny 2 today to even keep track of. The Malfeasance exotic quest is live, there’s a super hard dungeon mission in the Confluence now, and last but not least, everyone can now grab their third Seed of Light.

It seemed a bit odd to most that Bungie effectively timegated the new Forsaken subclasses, as you’d think those would have been offered up front relatively quickly. To get your second subclass-unlocking Seed of Light in Forsaken after getting your first in the campaign, you had to grind Tier 2 and 3 Blind Well. To get your third, you had to beat the first raid encounter last week, but Bungie soon made it clear that raiding would not be the only way to get it, because a huge portion of the playerbase doesn’t even attempt raids.

That day is here, and with all the other craziness, you can now get your third Seed of Light in the Dreaming City, which is once again tied to the Blind Well, but not as a random drop.

All you have to do is complete the two-part Offering to the Oracle mini quest/bounty that Petra has been giving out every week. Get both steps to this at Petra (she’s now moved again to the third part of the map), and then head to the Blind Well.

After paying 40 Dreaming City shards for the quest, you can fill up the progress bar to get the oracle by running Blind Well on repeat. Tier 1 gets you 10% filled, Tier 2 gets you 20% and Tier 3 gets you 30%. My If you run into a blank instance, my advice is to just start up Tier 1 and eventually, enough people will show up where one of you can start plugging in Tier 2 and Tier 3.

After that, you will get an Offering to the Oracle which should no longer be bugged, and you take it to the place from the campaign mission by the Spire and present it. Usually this gives you a chest with powerful gear. This time, you speak with Mara Sov and she gives you your third Seed of Light. After that, it’s just back to grinding the remaining three nodes and you’re done with your last subclass, just three weeks after Forsaken launched.

We can debate the timegate another day, but I do like how raiders got it first but then it was almost immediately opened up to everyone, as grinding Blind Well is not terribly difficult and anyone who has reached the Dreaming City should be able to do it.

I have saved my least-desired subclass for each class for last (Void Warlock, Void Titan, Arc Hunter), but perhaps I will be pleasantly surprised by one of them. But obviously nothing will be Thousand Cuts good or I would have already heard of it.

So go to Petra, head to the Blind Well and get yourself that Seed if you haven’t done the raid yet. Enjoy.

Here’s how anyone (non-raiders included) can get their third Seed of Light subclass in Destiny 2: Forsaken.

How-to Get Seed of Light – All Three Seeds – Destiny 2: Forsaken

Get all of the Seeds of Light and completely level your super!

Learn how-to obtain all three Seeds of Light and gain all of the abilities for your new super in Destiny 2: Forsaken! If you’ve been wondering how to get those last two seeds, then this Seed of Light Guide should help you finish that up. The first one is obviously very easy, but the second and third will require you to be in the 550 power level range, so be sure to equip yourself heavily before attempting to get your additional seeds.

First Seed of Light: Visions of Light Feathers

If you’ve already completed the Forsaken campaign then you’ve likely already done this. If you haven’t, then you’ll start to find Visions of Light feathers dropping from enemies in The Tangled Shore. Once you collect enough of these, you will be then told to head to Io and complete the quest that will unlock the additional super.

Second Seed of Light: The Blind Well (Public Event)

First of all, you’ll need to unlock The Dreaming City to begin with. Be sure you’ve completed the Forsaken campaign, and then speak to Petra Venj and you will be given an item called the Broken Awoken Talisman. You will then be sent on a quest to run around completing Lost Sectors, Strikes, and more. You’ll finally come to the Beyond the Watchtower mission and once you complete that you will unlock The Dreaming City.

Font of Starlight, The Dreaming City

Arcane Awoken technology with the power to split the seams between realities.

Now, this will require you to be much further along in your power level (550 is the recommended). Head to The Dreaming City and to the east you will find The Blind Well Public Event. There are multiple tiers to the Blind Well event, but what you need to complete is the second tier. To start this, you’ll first need Charge of Light – Tier II. To get these, purchase them with Dark Fragments from Petra Venj (each tier 2 charge of light is 13 fragments). If you complete a Blind well event, this will also sometimes reward you with a Charge of Light, so jump into one of those if you see it active.

Now that you are ready to go, head to The Blind Well and use those tier 2 charges of light. You will want a fireteam for this, so don’t attempt to do it alone. This now spawns a ton of enemies that you will need to dispatch and finally finishing with a boss to complete.

If you are able to complete the event then you have a CHANCE at gaining a Seed of Light. There’s no guarantee, it’s a random drop. It also isn’t a guaranteed to any members of your party, it’s random all the way around.

Third Seed of Light: Raid or Mara Sov

Firstly, you can do this in any order. You can get this “third” seed before you get the one from The Blind Well. There are two ways to do it. You can attempt to head into the Raid and kill the first boss: Kalli, the Corrupted. You will have to be pretty high power level, looking in the 560 – 580 range.

Alternatively, you can do it the easier way, but it requires you to do it at a certain time. The Dreaming City is on a three week rotation, during the final week when the curse is at its height you can go to Petra Venj and pick up the “Gateway Between Worlds” weekly bounty. You complete this by finishing the Blind Well event multiple times. The higher tier you complete, the more percentage is given towards the bounty. Once you’ve done this, you will be given the “Offering to the Oracle” reward. Head to the Observatory and give the offering to the Oracle. This will open up a portal, and allow you to visit with Mara Sov. She will give you a reward which is the third seed of light!
