The long-awaited climax to this Season's exotic quest Tracing the Stars has arrived. Let's see what Mara Sov has in store for us this week.

The thrilling conclusion to Destiny 2’s most exciting fetch quest has arrived. Let’s find those Atlas Skews once more before we collect the non-season pass.

Garden Entry Statue

Destiny 2: Atlas Skew Week 4 locationsThe final skew is in the entrance to the Gardens of Esila, just a short walk from the Triple Tree

Once you’ve made it far enough into the room with the red tint, the Gardens of Esila location tag should appear on your screen. When it does, venture through the door on your left.

The final skew should be on the right side of the room underneath a large pillar.

Once you’ve picked up the final skew, open the Director and return to the H.E.L.M. and venture once more into the portal to the Caliburn Gatehouse.

Completing A Hollow Coronation

Destiny 2: Atlas Skew Week 4 locationsThis is the final step of the quest. Deposit the Skews here in the Gatehouse and claim your prize.

You will already have the quest this time, so venture into the portal and realign the Atlas Skews and listen to Uldren Sov’s last recording about the story that set you on this path in the first place. After he’s done speaking, Mara will begin to give some additional context.

When then Sovs are done speaking, venture back through the portal and lay claim to the glorious Exotic weapon that we’ve been waiting these long weeks for.

Except, you can’t do that yet. There’s another hitch in the plan and you’ll need to return to Mara Sov and help her before anything else can happen.

A Hollow Coronation Continues

There’s always more to the story with Mara Sov. It turns out that Ager’s Scepter isn’t yours to have yet. She needs you to collect Strands of Nobility in order for her to unlock the weapon from its stasis, because of course she does. There’s enough drama between Mara and the Vanguard to make this whole questline feel like we’re just a few steps short of the entire pot boiling over.

She promises that Ager’s Scepter will be yours if you complete the things she’s asking for, so I suppose there’s no reason to stop now.

Head into an Astral Alignment quest and get to working on the requirements. In my experience, this only took two Alignments, but it will depend on how efficiently you tick off the boxes.

Once the first set of requirements are done, there is another step – defeating 18 champions, and earning 20 super kills, so you may need to start on an additional Alignment.

Collecting Strands of Nobility

The requirements for the second half of A Hollow Coronation This is the last major step in A Hollow Coronation. The end is so close you can taste it.

After you’re done with the Astral Alignments, you’ll still have a few more goals to take care of. This time it’s a handful of Strikes that are spread out across the universe.

  1. Lake of Shadows (EDZ)
  2. The Disgraced (Cosmodrome)
  3. The Glassway (Europa)

Once this is done the quest will update once more, and it’s back to the H.E.L.M. to talk to Mara Sov.

Actually Completing A Hollow Coronation

When you speak with Mara Sov this time, she’ll give you the Noble Seal needed to unlock the scepter.

Travel back to the H.E.L.M. and you’ll notice that A Hollow Coronation is now a true Exotic Quest. When you load in, travel back through the portal and you’ll find Ager’s Scepter. You can actually pick it up this time too. Once you’ve collected it, the quest will update for the millionth time, and you will be instructed to blow up some rocks, just like the ones that are all around The Shattered Realm.

Destiny 2: Atlas Skew Week 4 locationsThe Scepter is finally ours. It’s hard not to feel like we did all the hard work while Mara just sat around in her bedroom the whole time.

After you make it through the rocks, you will then be prompted to take care of some bad guys before heading back to speak with Mara Sov one final time.

When you arrive back in her chambers, Mara will bestow upon you the climactic cutscene for this storyline. No spoilers here, but you should definitely watch it. The animation is absolutely perfect.

That’s it for our series on Tracing the Stars/A Hollow Coronation. All in all, I think this questline ended on a bang. That final cutscene is beautiful and we now have that sweet, sweet scepter to freeze enemies in place with.
