Destiny 2 Lost Prophecies - How to Craft Vex / Osiris Weapons

Lost Prophecies are a new type of activity in Destiny 2. They’re were added in the Curse of Osiris DLC. They’re similar to the bounties from the first game, and will reward you with legendary weapons on a weekly basis. They become available after you’ve completed the story missions and some other activities, and remove some of the randomness from the game. Players are having trouble starting them, so we’re writing this about Destiny 2 Lost Prophecies to show you how to start Forge quests and craft Vex / Osiris weapons

Destiny 2 Lost Prophecies Will Drop Legendary Weapons – Curse of Osiris

The prophecies are tied to the Weapon Forge. There are some conditions that need to be met before you can start doing them:

  1. Complete the Curse of Osiris story campaign.
  2. Complete three adventures on Mercury.
  3. Complete one heroic adventure on Mercury (you’ll be able to choose one of three).

After that, Brother Vance will start offering lost prophecy verses. Each verse is a quest in itself. Once you’ve taken the verse, reading it will give you more info about what you need to do. The first one (as well as the ones from the preview livestream) tasks you with gathering a certain amount of a certain item. If you inspect the verse from your inventory, the game will tell you all the ways you can get the item – from playing public events, strikes, Crucible matches or something else entirely. Once you’ve got the items, the process gets needlessly drawn out:

  1. You talk to Brother Vance and upgrade your prophecy offering. This combines the items you’ve collected with some legendary shards, making the actual item the verse needs.
  2. You open up your inventory and use the upgraded offering. This makes the verse “react to your deeds”.
  3. You take it back to Brother Vance, and he turns it into a fulfilled verse using space magic.
  4. Only then do you go to the forge, use it and get your new legendary weapon.
