    • The Strike is slightly different.
      • The dialogue is between The Ghost and Mara Sov.
      • Some doors and interactions take longer to happen to accomodate for the dialogue.
      • After activating the resonant slabs, the player collects a Cryptoglyph from the basin before moving foward.
      • After defeating the boss, a Deepsight cloud appears. Using it reveals an incubator. Interacting with it places the worm upon it and concludes the mission.
  • Visit Fynch. Your newly acquired Cryptoglyph is the key to fully revitalizing Savathûn's worm. But first, you'll need to re-energize it…
  • Locate a Cryptoglyph rune in the Temple of the Cunning. Fynch has transmitted details of a Cryptoglyph rune location. Track it down to re-energize the Cryptoglyph.

  • Locate a larvae incubator at the end of the Extraction Lost Sector in the Quagmire. Savathûn's dormant curse is now killing her worm! You'll need to act fast to keep it alive before you can start looking for Mara. Fynch may have an answer…
    • After defeating the Lost Sector's boss, a Deepsight cloud will appear in the exit corridor. Interact with it to open a passage into another room. Interact with the Incubator and listen to the dialogue to complete the step.
  • Visit Fynch and see if he can help Savathûn's worm. Savathûn's dormant curse is now killing her worm! You'll need to act fast to keep it alive before you can start looking for Mara. Fynch may have an answer…
