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!

Destiny 2 Blind Well explained, Seed of Light and Oracle Engine Offering locations
How to navigate Destiny 2’s end-game activities Blind Well and the Oracle Engine, as well as getitng more Seed of Light.
Destiny 2 Blind Well is a horde-mode style event in Destiny 2’s end-game destination, The Dreaming City.
Akin to the likes of Court of Oryx, Archon’s Forge and Escalation Protocol from previous Destiny expansions, it requires you to spend consumables to take part in the activity, which requires other players (either in a Fireteam, or who happen to be in the area already) to help complete.
Taking on the Blind Well helps you complete get a Seed of Light in Destiny 2 – both of which we’ll explain more about on this page.
Blind Well location and preparation in Destiny 2
To find the Blind Well location, first unlock The Dreaming City as part of the Forsaken walkthrough. From where you spawn in to The Dreaming City, you’ll see a giant door in the cliffs in the distance. Head through here, through the hallways and passages, until you emerge in a room with a sunken area and a totem in the middle.
Before you get started, we highly recommend getting the ‘Gateway Between Worlds’ bounty first, which has to be purchased from planetary vendor Petra for 40 Dark Fragments – a currency you’ll find from completing anything from Public Events to Patrols or opening chests. It requires Blind Well playthroughs to complete, so you may as well kill two birds with one stone.
You cannot do Blind Well solo, so hopefully there will be other players actively playing when you arrive. If so, just join them. Otherwise, you’ll need a least a full Fireteam to complete the lower tiers. If you are solo, and no other players in the wild are appearing, then retreat to the previous area, then walk – not run! – back to the Blind Well area, and the game should load in other players.
To start an encounter, you need to ‘charge’ the totem with a Charge of Light consumable. Chances are you’ll have picked one of these up as a reward for completing various The Dreaming City activities, otherwise you can grab them from Petra.
There are three kinds of tiers you can use to charge the totem with, and a Heroic Blind Well by inputting an Unstable Charge of Light into the Well straight after Tier 3 has been completed:
- Blind Well Tier 1 – One Plague boss encounter = 10% Gateway Between World increase
- Blind Well Tier 2 – Two Plague boss encounters = 20% Gateway Between World increase
- Blind Well Tier 3 – Three Plague boss encounters = 30% Gateway Between World increase
- Blind Well Tier 3 + Heroic encounter = 50% Gateway Between World increase
In short – the higher the tier, the harder the end boss encounters, but the higher the charge for the bounty. Weigh up your team and powerful level so you don’t bite off more than you can chew!
How to beat Blind Well in Destiny 2
When you are ready, charge the Totem. How each round of Blind Well is quite simple. You have to stand in ‘safe’ bubbles that appear in sequence around the totem, killing enemies that approach. After a certain amount of enemies are beaten, the next bubble activates. Head inside and repeat until the final encounter against the Plague enemies.
There are a couple of things to note along the way, however. For one, you must stay in the bubble to avoid getting damaged. You’ll also encounter some invincible enemies along the way – Servants of the Plague. You don’t need to kill them in these early encounters, but if you want to, locate The Anathema enemies, which give you a buff so you can damage them.
The final encounter has you face against Herald of the Plague enemies. These are invincible in the same way the Servants of the Plague enemies are, and can become vulnerable in the same way – by defeating the The Anathema that spawn nearby. Once the shield has dropped on one of the Plague enemies, it shouldn’t recover. But be wary of the clock – you only have a certain amount of time to kill them.
Once the Herald of the Plague enemies are down, the encounter is complete and a chest will spawn in the middle. Encounter done! You’re then welcome to charge and go again, if the group around you are willing to join you.
Remember the ‘Gateway Between Worlds’ bounty will take several rounds to charge, but stick at it until it’s complete to then undergo the Oracle Engine Offering step.
Oracle Engine Offering location
Once you have fully competed the ‘Gateway Between Worlds’ bounty, you can then do the Oracle Engine Offering step.
You must do this in the Spine of Keres. It’s a location not on the map, but to get there, load into the Dreaming City patrol space, and in this starting area, keep the giant door to the Blind Well to your right, and you’ll see a glowing blue passage in the rock:
Follow this and you’ll reach the Spine of Keres.
The first building you come across is where you make the offering. When you enter, go right up the steps, and on the balcony, you’ll see the prompt.
Make sure you open the chest in front of you once the Oracle Offering is made. You’ll then also receive another Pursuit, the reward of which is receiving a Transcendent Blessing mod – increasing your damage output in all Dreaming City activities.
The steps to complete it differ from week-to-week, but they should be reasonably clear from the description.

How to get more Seed of Light
The Seed of Light is a consumable that gives you the third Super and set of abilities in each sub-class. Unlike the last time the game introduced new abilities like this – with Destiny 2’s first major expansion The Taken King – unlocking them requires several steps.
If you’ve played the Forsaken walkthrough, you’ll know early on you’ll get the ‘New Powers’ milestone, where you collect ‘Visions of Light’ from powerful creatures, which in turn unlocks a mission to get your first Seed of Light.
After that, there are two other known sources of Seed of Light, which come from specific activities during the late game:
- Blind Well Tier 2 completions. This is a random drop when you complete this encounter. It’s fairly uncommon – taking us around 4-5 attempts for it to show up.
- Last Wish Raid first boss victory. Players are seeing a Seed of Light drop when beating the Forsaken Raid’s first boss encounter – Kalli the Corrupted.
There is a chance there will be other Seed of Light sources that emerge over time, as beating even the first step of Last Wish is quite the challenge – and we doubt developer Bungie will lock players out of a third ability so easily.
