Presage (also known as Exotic Quest: Presage) is an Exotic Quest introduced in Season of the Chosen and can be accessed on the Tangled Shore. The activity can be unlocked by retrieving an Intercepted Distress Signal at the beginning of The Arms Dealer strike. Once acquired, go to the Tower and speak to Zavala who will give you a quest titled The Voice on the Other Side. Completion of this activity on Normal difficulty rewards the Guardian with the Dead Man's Tale Exotic scout rifle; whereas completion on Master difficulty yields the Dead Man's Tale Catalyst.
The activity takes place aboard the derelict Cabal carrier, the Glykon Volatus; drifting on the periphery of the anomaly left as a result of Mars' disappearance from the Sol System. The Guardian is tasked by Zavala to respond to the distress signal recovered in the EDZ and rescue Katabasis aboard the ship. Osiris accompanies the Guardian on their outing, with Caiatl lending her assistance as she searches for the whereabouts of Emperor Calus.
As the Guardian makes their way inside the ship, fluorescent spores and Egregore fauna infest the interior. Moving deeper within the carrier, it is revealed that a number of Corrupted Scorn are aboard the ship. After escaping a trash compactor, the Guardian encounters the Locus of Communion, the mutated result of Calus' attempts at communing with the Darkness through the Crown of Sorrow. Once the rescue team had successfully navigated through the hangar area, they began to hear the voices of the dead. The Guardian eventually tracked the Locus of Communion down and successfully defeated it.
Upon exiting the boiler room, it is revealed that Katabasis died and his mutated corpse is now strung up by the Egregore. Picking up the Dead Man's Tale scout rifle ends the activity.
The Guardian must navigate through the Glykon and successfully complete the mission in 25 minutes. The Contest modifier is active, meaning that you are under-levelled against enemies. Contrary to what is stated on the activity screen, Master difficulty does not include any Champions to fight. Completing the activity on this difficulty rewards the Dead Man's Tale catalyst.
There are a total of 15 clues aboard the ship and finding all of them rewards you with the Shell of Gilgamesh Exotic Ghost shell. Each set must be completed in order to gain access to the next week's set of clues. A triumph is rewarded for each week's completion.
There are 5 clues available this week for the Figments of an Answer triumph.
There are 6 clues available this week for the Another Link in the Chain triumph.
There are 4 clues available this week for the All the Scattered Pieces triumph.
There are a total of 12 smuggling compartments throughout the ship which contain a chest giving a small amount of loot, as well as advancing your Dead Man's Tale catalyst faster. New smuggling compartments are unlocked by picking up the Captain's Log lore pieces when completing the mission. To access these smuggling compartments, you will need to interact with the nearby datapad which corresponds to the relative area the compartment should be. Finding all of the smuggling compartments will reward the Tucked Away triumph.
