Destiny 2 Cryptic Quatrains III Steps and Clues

Our hunt comes to an end.

The Cryptic Quatrains quest is a three-part series that will take Guardians all over the system in Destiny 2. Filled with clues and plenty of buried treasure, this is one adventure well worth taking.

Destiny 2 Cryptic Quatrains III

Cryptic Quatrains III - Part 1

...was I still alive? Still not dead, as I dreamed? Me treasure not sunken, not lost in the deep? They'd caught not their quarry, I would be redeemed and bury me knife in their chests while they sleep.

  • This step is pointing Guardians to The Quarry Lost Sector in the EDZ. Run through it to unlock the next step.

Cryptic Quatrains III - Part 2

I waded ashore after crashin' their ship. Me takin' their treasure they'd never forgive. Me exodus doubtless curled many a lip. I'd make them forget I had one life to live.

  • Guardians need to run through the Exodus Crash Strike without dying. Take your time and play carefully.

Cryptic Quatrains III - Part 3

They cursed as their catch crashed away through the trees. I moved as if lightnin' did arc through me bones. I felt like the maker had answered my pleas. While handy with cannons, they left 'em back home.

  • This step is only a little more involved. Guardians will need to run the Ketch Crash activity with their Arc subclass and a hand cannon equipped.

Cryptic Quatrains III - Part 4

Alone with me atlas and treasure at last I use me crude dagger to cut out a code. This cipher I'll place where it's held safe and fast. Two beacons will guide you if treasure you're owed.

  • Pop open that Captain's Atlas and insert the Crude Cipher from Cryptic Quatrains I and II.

Cryptic Quatrains III - Part 5

I crept out at dusk, left me treasure behind and found me old crew and the captain as well. I'm light with a blade and me right hand's unkind. They'll find their salvation dead-center in hell.

  • Time to line up the different Eliksni house sigils.
    • House of Dusk - Left
    • House of Salvation - Center
    • House of Light - Right

Cryptic Quatrains III - Part 6

The cosmos had set me ashore, I was free. Forgotten at last, me heart empty of hate. On deck of the vessel that pointed to sea. I leaned on the mast and awaited me fate.

  • Guardians will need to head to The Forgotten Shore in the Cosmodrome and look for the ships. One of these ships will have its mast pointed toward the sea. You'll find a green sigil on deck that will unlock the next clue.

Cryptic Quatrains III - Part 7

I took all I had, placed it safe in a cave where stream joins its mother by pillars of three. It's yours if you like, for you're clever and brave. You may find me treasure...but never find me.

  • Thankfully the next and final clue is in the same area. Head northwest and you'll see three pillars. Between the pillar on the left and middle is a small cave. Head inside to claim your treasure.
