A Ranger Lost is a Hunter exclusive story quest in The Taken King as part of the Quest The Nightstalker's Trail. It is assigned by Cayde-6, who orders The Guardian to search for his friend Tevis Larsen in order to learn the ways of the Nightstalker sub-class.

  • Cayde-6: What does it mean to be a Hunter? I say, it's all about where you belong. The Warlocks have their libraries, Titans have their walls… but Hunters belong in the wilds. Out there, you wanna live? You better have a quick shot, or a sharp blade. A lot of us are loners. But that's not the only path. Some of us know the difference a Fireteam makes. Some of us… we touch the Void. Make it a part of us. And then we take a name… Nightstalker. Hunt from the shadows, pin them down, and never let them see you coming.

  • Cayde-6: Tevis is our most experienced Nightstalker. We can't afford to lose him. Plus, y'know, he's an old friend. Owes me money.
  • Ghost: A Nightstalker's bow leaves behind very precise scarring. Fascinating.

The Guardian searches for Tevis

  • Tevis: If anyone can hear me — I don't think I'm on Venus anymore. This looks an awful lot like the Black Garden.

The Guardian reaches the Endless Steps

  • Cayde-6: Tevis? That you?
  • Tevis: Cayde? Good that I can't smell your breath. Listen, I stepped through the gate. My Ghost is still on the other side.
  • Cayde-6: Well, he's in a great mood. See if you can find his Ghost. If Tevis is trapped in the Black Garden, he'll need you.

The Guardian is ambushed by several waves of Vex at one of their gates

  • Cayde-6: That was a lot of shooting. You all right?
  • Ghost: We're fine. I'm picking up the origin point of the broadcast: it's a dead Ghost.
  • Cayde-6: Right. Let's hope Tevis is still kicking.

The Guardian discovers Tevis' dead Ghost

  • Cayde-6: Tevis, if you can hear us, we're getting telemetry through your Ghost.
  • Tevis: The Vex are attacking quicker and quicker. I got no Ghost, and a bow that's short on Light.
  • Ghost: We can use the Gate in the Valley of Kings to get him out. Let's go!
