Objective:

Follow rumors of a Taken coven to the Cosmodrome. Complete mission "Blighted Coven."

"Oryx is dead, but we still have Taken all across the Cosmodrome. I aim to fix that. There's a coven of blighted Hive Wizards running the show over there.

At least, that's our best intel. Get in there, clean out the Taken and give yourself a pat on the back. In that order.
"

2 Talk to Cayde-6
"The Taken will be a threat in the system for years to come. I just hope missions like the coven hunt does some good, long term."
— Cayde-6
Speak to Cayde-6 in the Hall of Guardians at the Tower.
3 Kill Taken Champions
"There's nothing about the Taken I like. Cabal, good tactics. Hive, great architecture. Fallen are fantastic joke-tellers and Vex can make decent hat racks. The Taken? All they do is spread the blight and try to kill you"

4 Talk to Cayde-6
"Cayde is a cunning hunter, with years of experience in staying alive in the wilds. But, um, fighting a war isn't his strong suit. I'm not sure the 'shoot them all to death' strategy is going to be enough."
— Ghost
Speak to Cayde-6 in the Hall of Guardians at the Tower.
5 Kings of Decay
"We're having trouble getting a bead on where the Taken come from. My solution, and I think it's a good one, is for you to go shoot them all until they stop showing up."
— Cayde-6
Hunt the source of the Taken blight across the Cosmodrome.
