The Dreaming City is a Destination in Forsaken, featuring many endgame activities, such as the Last Wish raid and the Blind Well horde activity.[1] It is the homeland of the Reefborn Awoken, and is of great significance to them.[2] It is partially within both our universe and the Ascendant realm. Petra Venj is the world vendor for the city. To access the city, Guardians must complete the campaign of Forsaken and embark on a long and difficult questline.

Overview[edit]

The Dreaming City is the Reefborn Awoken's homeland. It was created by Mara Sov after her departure from the Distributary and is her personal realm. At one point, Prince Uldren Sov brought a baby Ahamkara named Riven to the City.

The Dreaming City is built upon a flat disk, constructed from the remains of at least one unknown rocky celestial body. Its upper surface contains a "silver sea", water from which continually spills off the edge of the disk and is reclaimed by a stabilization ring that also holds the City in place. The entire city is a closed ecosystem, with water being recycled by systems within the bedrock[3].

A massive ring-shaped structure can be seen in the sky of the Dreaming City, along with what appears to be a black hole or other light-warping phenomenon directly overhead. The ring is a portal that controls access to the Dreaming City from the Tangled Shore, and utilizes some form of cloaking technology to seal the Dreaming City off from the outside world[4]. The nature of the black hole-like object is unknown, but it may be the singularity which grants access to the Distributary.

The City is named after a group of unknown entities known as the Dreaming, who are connected in some way with the will of the Awoken people as a whole.

History[edit]

The Dark Age[edit]

After The Queen left the Awoken homeland, the Distributary, she created the Dreaming City as her own personal realm. There, she and other Awoken could reside in peace. Uldren Sov went to bring the Queen a gift and returned with Riven, the Ahamkara. Riven stayed in the City for the rest of her life.

The Taken War[edit]

During the Taken War, Oryx visited the Dreaming City. His very presence corrupted the City. It is theorized that he also took Riven and the Techeuns, and unleashed the Taken into the City.

Forsaken[edit]

At one point, The Fanatic introduced the Scorn to the Dreaming City, where they remain.

At some point, the City was pulled into the Ascendant realm, being halfway trapped between it and our realm.[5]

After the death of Riven, the Ahamkara granted one last wish to a Guardian fireteam. While what the wish was is unknown, the effects are clear, as the Dreaming city is now trapped in an endless 3-week long curse. While the curse resets every time Dûl Incaru is killed, there is currently no way to permanently rid the city of the curse.

Trivia[edit]

  • The Dreaming City is the second Destination that is within the Ascendant realm, the first being the Dreadnaught.
  • The city's size is as large as Nessus.
  • The Divalian Mists and Rheasilvia share names with features on the asteroid 4 Vesta, the equatorial trough Divalia Fossa and the impact crater Rheasilvia, suggesting that the Dreaming City was built on it.
  • The city was originally going to be a standard location, initially explored through story missions, then finally unlock access to the expansion's raid. In November 2017, this was changed to being a location that players could explore at will.[6]
  • An album of changes to the Dreaming City across the three-week cycle can be found here.
