Gameplay
[edit]

Start Adventure
The Cistern

Cayde-6: Hey you two. My scouts picked up a weird Cabal signal coming from a ship that's definitely not Red Legion. Some new guy giving orders. He's got the Red Legion running around like errand boys on Nessus. Last time the Cabal had a management shakeup, they burned down our house. Let's see what they're up to. Bring guns.

Ghost: Well, we always have at least three.

Enter the Vex Ruins
Track the Vex data stream to the cluster of confluxes
The player follows the coordinates into the Well of Flame.
Well of Flame
The player enters the Well of Flame, a large circular room, with ample quantities of damaging Radiolarian Fluid covering the floor. The area is filled with Cabal equipment being used to study the Vex Confluxes, with the Cabal even scooping up Radiolaria into containers for further study, as well as having a large holographic projection in the middle of the room displaying a Vex Slap Rifle. All this is being conducted by the Red Legion's 7th Company, who attack the player.

Ghost: The Legion is pulling schematics of Nessus itself from the Confluxes! Atmsophereic, geologic, and tectonic data... They want it all. I'm not sure why.

Ghost: Okay, this might explain it. Let's see... The Legion is helping their unnamed leader identify mineral rich deposits on Nessus for...consumption. Well, that can't be right.

Ghost: Okay, I'm going to read this and you pretend like I understand. The Cabal want to grind Nessus into "glorious dust, fit for royalty." It's more environmental data. Just some logistical planning so they can prime their ship to... "eat the planet." This new Cabal leader might have a few screws loose.

Reach the Landing Site
The Cabal have sent ships to investigate the Vex confluxes. Get there first.
The player exits the Well of Flame and returns outside to the Cistern

Ghost: Transmitting now. Cayde! I'm picking up a planet-wide broadcast. "Red Legion 7th Company has failed to secure the Vex data. Their invitation to join the Loyalist regime is hereby rescinded." There's more. "The rest of you still have a chance to prove yourselves. I offer you a life of... opulence?"

Cayde: Opulence? Oh, I could go for some opulence right now.

The player draws near the duo of Confluxes, finding the 7th Company desperately fighting to secure them against the Fallen in the area before the player arrives in the hopes of redeeming themselves.
Clear out the Dropship Crew
Take out the Cabal drop crews before they beginning your search
The player kills the Cabal and drives off the Fallen.
Get to the Confluxes
Reach the site before Cabal reinforcements arrive
The player approaches the conflxues, which due to their environmental positions are distinguished by one being the Lower Conflux and the other the Upper Conflux. Ghost wirelessly connects to the conflux upon the player's approach, while the player fights off the Cabal reinforcements being delivered in one of the few instances of Cabal using Harvesters rather than Ripper Pods in Destiny 2. Adding to the difficulty, the Harvesters will linger for a while and bombard the player while their troops advance on the Confluxes.

Ghost: I'm in! This gets weirder... They've analyzed the planetoid soil and what might happen if it's combined with something called "Royal Nectar." One more cluster.

Ghost: Great work! Both Confluxes linked! Just keep them away while I... read this recipe for converting Nessus soil into a purified "Royal Wine." What are the Cabal doing?

The 7th Company deploys reinforcements and attempts to storm the Confluxes and regain their honor.

Despite the text changing in response to Cabal movements the progression counter from 0 to 100% will remain consistent and not keep resetting.

Cayde: They're gonna be so mad. I love it!

Ghost: Serves them right! Let's get this to the Vanguard before I have to defrag. The Legion wanted every byte of data the Vex have on Nessus.

Ghost: "All I ask is that you return to my loving embrace." Ew. "Emperor Calus has spoken."

Cayde: Whoa. Wait. Emperor? As in Cabal Emperor? OK, opulence later. Ikora now. Ikora! Uh great job today, guys.

Ghost: Boy, he left in a hurry. I wonder what that was about?
