How to start the Ruinous Effigy ‘Growth’ quest in Destiny 2

To start the Ruinous Effigy, visit the Prismatic Recaster next to the Drifter in the Tower.

You will then have the quest “Growth”, and the first step, “Gift”, will require you to complete the quest Interference.

Interference is the final step of the ‘Means to an End’ weekly quest introduced as part of the Season of Arrivals, for which Pinnacle Gear is the reward.

You can find it on Io:

As long as you haven’t completed it that week, go ahead and finish the questline and then the quest.

Once this is done, the Pendulum passage is unlocked.

How to find Calcified Light Shards and Savathun Puppets in the Ruined Effigy Pendulum quest step

The passage of the Pendulum has two requirements:

  • Collect 25 Calcified Light Fragments on Io, Titan, Mars, and Mercury.
  • Defeat 15 Savathun Puppets on Io and Titan.

Calcified Light Fragments are hidden items that can be collected on Io, Titan, Mars, and Mercury. These appear as a node when you open your Ghost on these planets, and as long as you search the correct region of the planet, they should be easy to find.

To find Calcified Light locations, visit the following regions (thanks to ToxicAWOL on reddit for these):

  • Io: 10
    • 4 in giant scar
    • 3 in The Rapture
    • 3 in Lost Oasis
  • Titan: 5
    • 2 in the siren guard
    • 3 on the platform
  • Mercury: 5
  • Mars: 5
    • 2 in Glacial Drift
    • 3 in Bray technology

As for the Savathun puppets on Io and Titan, they appear during the seasonal contact event.

They also appear after taking out groups of taken yellow bar enemies that appear on those planets.

Here are WoW Quests on YouTube showing an example:

Once this is done, the Feed step begins.

The Season of the Depths is here along with the Into the Depths quest. You can also know how to go fishing! Don’t forget to keep an eye on the Lost Sector and King’s Fall challenge rotation schedule!

How to complete the Feeding step in the Ruinous Effigy quest

The Feed step has three requirements:

  • Complete Gambit or Reckoning matches, with higher Reckoning levels and invader kills speeding up progress.
  • The emptiness kills
  • Multiple Precision Kills

Although you can complete the last two steps anywhere in the solar system, it makes sense to do them while completing games of Gambit or Reckoning.

While higher-level Reckoning matches are the quickest way to get through this, play the mode or level that’s most fun for you.

Once this is done, you have one last step: Shape.

This will allow you to visit the Umbral Decoder next to the Wanderer in the Tower to obtain your reward: the Ruinous Effigy Exotic Tracking Rifle. Well done!
