The Deepening Wake 1024x576 - How to Start the Pit of Heresy Dungeon in Destiny 2


The first dungeon in Destiny 2 was introduced in the Dreaming City and was called the Shattered Throne. This three-person player activity allowed players to explore a region of the Dreaming City while encountering a significant challenge. Dungeons are longer than a Strike, but reward players with more powerful loot. Several mechanics may be involved throughout the dungeon.

The begin the steps for the Pit of Heresy, players will need to pay a visit to Eris Morn on the Moon in Sanctuary. Players will pick up a quest called The Deepening Awake that will require players to travel to Sorrow’s Keep and partake in a new Public Event called Altars of Sorrows.

The Deepening Awake

During the Altar of Sorrows, players will be met with several waves of Nightmare Hive that must be defeated before they escape into a portal. Killing the Nightmare Boss will add time to the event. To complete the Deepening Awake, players will need to open a Tier III+ chest at Altar of Sorrows and defeat 20 Nightmares. Since this is a Public Event, other Guardians will be joining on the fight to make it a breeze. Head back to Eris Morn once you complete this quest.

The Pit of Heresy Dungeon will be unlocked and can be accessed via the Director on The Moon. Now that you know how to start the Pit of Heresy Dungeon grab two more of your friends and explore this new activity. Check out our Destiny 2 archives for even more guides.
