"Jump coordinates matching an errant distress signal."
— Mission description

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 in exchange for his rifle. Osiris accompanies the Guardian on their outing, with Caiatl lending her assistance as she searches for the whereabouts of Emperor Calus.[1]

Fluorescent spores and Egregore fauna infest the interior of the ship, with the remains of Cabal Legionaries and Scorn Stalkers scattered throughout the various areas. The Glykon Volatus has been overrun with Corrupted Scorn and are being led by the Locus of Communion, the mutated result of Calus' attempts at communing with the Darkness through the Crown of Sorrow. The team heard numerous voices of the dead several times while navigating through the ship such as Sagira, Cayde-6, and Uldren Sov. Upon reaching the boiler room, the Guardian successfully defeated the Locus of Communion and traversed through further vents to reach the bridge of the ship. Once there, the team discovered that Katabasis had died and his corpse was strung up by the Egregore, slowly siphoning the Light from his body; his rifle was lain on the ground next to the fauna.

After numerous expeditions to the ship and uncovering each of the smuggling compartments revealed by the Captain's Log pieces, the team discovered the Crown of Sorrow underneath the bridge of the ship. Osiris noted that the Crown was 'listening' and had been altered from its original design of possessing the wearer to assimilating two entities together. He also wished to recover this and return it to the Tower for further inspection, but Caiatl strongly objected.[1]

Master difficulty[edit]

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.

Glykon clues[edit]

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.

  1. The Cabal strung up by the Egregore, directly in front of the first spore barrier you encounter.
  2. The Scorn crown to the right of the entrance to the second spore barrier.
  3. The ship at ground level in the hangar, inside the combat area at the far back.
  4. The Dark Ether canisters, inside the room after the second electric barrier.
  5. The hologram of Calus. After defeating the Locus of Communion and dropping down the vent, turn around and jump over the box.

  2. The antenna on the outside of the ship, immediately after the first hangar area.

  4. The Cabal regalia, at the rally flag before the boss fight.

Smuggling compartments[edit]

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.

  • The breakable panel on the left, immediately after entering the ship.
  • The middle of the walkway with the door on the floor, just before dropping down to the entrance of the ship.
  • Inside the first room with the Egregore, on the right of the room.
  • The room with the second Screeb encounter, after passing through the second Egregore barrier.
  • The room to the left on the second floor, generally in the same area as the previous datapad.
  • Inside the escape vent, once the three fuses have been destroyed in the trash compactor room.
  • After the first encounter, the closed room on the left.
  • At the back of the first hangar area, near the closed door and the docked ship.
  • At the back of the second hangar area, behind the Thresher.
  • In the first room after the second hangar area, turn right to see the datapad and the door.
  • Inside the maze, turn around to face the opposite direction from the spores. At the first intersection, turn right and continue down the way.
  • Inside the final room, behind Katabasis' body at the front of the ship.


  • Despite the mission being accessed from the tangled shore, the animation which displays your ship dropping out of orbit has a unique background
    • This likely has to do with the fact that Presage takes place on the Glykon, not on the tangled shore
